Re: Made my first kydex revolver holster

Looks great! Thinking of doing the same for a kukri knife.

Re: Eye Pro over Prescription glasses?

I'm highly nearsighted and considered "legally blind" without corrective lenses. I usually wear contact lenses and wear eye pro over them. However, I invested in a pair of prescription inserts that fit inside dedicated eye pro from Smith Optics. They are the Aegis Arc Compact model. I ordered them o...

Well I’ll be.... Didn’t know that! Glad to see someone makes new ones even if they are about double the price of the CMP Specials.

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

No doubt they have collector interest. I can see these being sold out year after year to collectors serious enough to pay that price. I think the main difference between these and the Garands is that you can still buy a 1911 from various major firearm manufacturers, but I don’t know of any major man...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

Yeah, no sooner than I posted did I get another email with the pricing info on their website that crashed. The prices looked high to me, too, but I admit I don’t know enough yet about valuing pistols like these. Doubt I’ll buy one at those prices, though. Despite the pricing, I think they’ll still s...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

I got the same email from them but haven’t checked their website yet for the additional info. I’d really like to have one of these collector items, but I’ve wavered on whether I’ll try to purchase one through the the CMP given the really high public interest already garnered. I’m guessing interest w...

Re: The Winchester 1300 shotgun

Excellent info, Puma Guy and Scott B. I had read something about the desirability of pre-64 Winchesters, and that helps explain why. Good to hear the 1200/1300s are still reliable, albeit less popular than the Rem 870 and Moss 500.

Re: The Winchester 1300 shotgun

I have a 1300 and a couple of it's predessesors Model 1200. They are smoother and less clanky than all the other pumps I own. I bought one back in 1966 that I shot sleet with. It was stolen, but the point is it was smooth and fast enough to shoot doubles with no problem. I have a Benneli Supernova ...

Re: 4 suspects break in, pistol whip homeowner and robbery

Sickening to watch, especially when I saw those poor little kids. Really makes me re-think about my home defense and protection of my family.

Re: Book review: I’M FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND I’M HERE TO KILL YOU

Oh, don't get me wrong. It sounds like a very interesting book, and I probably will put it on my list to read. I also didn't mean to lessen or dispute that wrongs have been committed by government. We're all imperfect beings and improvements can always be made. I just wanted to dispel any portrayal ...

Re: Book review: I’M FROM THE GOVERNMENT AND I’M HERE TO KILL YOU

Hi Folks, I haven’t read the book, but I’m sure it contains some doosies on government wrongdoing and negligence resulting in injuries and deaths. I don’t mean to diminish or cast aside the pain suffered by the victims of government abuse. But as a government employee, I admit bias when I say that I...

Re: My new Colt

Nice! I have the same model but I'm .45 ACP. It's my first and only Colt, 1911, and .45. Love it! It's by far my favorite shooting handgun.

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

Thanks for the report ammoboy. SQLGeek, I recently found out about them, too. I’m not really into running or jogging, but training for an event like this was actually fun. Most I’ve ever run was a 5K in my younger years, but I was able to work my way up to a slow jog for about 5 or so miles with 20-...
