Re: Stag Arms announces decision to relocate

My first, and so far only, AR build is a Stag. I also hope they move to Texas!

Re: Best compact 1911? Or favorite DA/SA carry

Y’all have some nice compact 1911s. And I’ve never shot a Colt Defender but am now curious to try one. Anyway, it’s not a compact 1911, but I sometimes carry a single stack S&W 3913 (9mm) that’s a DA/SA. I got it used a few years ago for less than $400. I like it a lot, but there aren’t as many hols...

I typed out “W-T-F” but the board’s auto censor changed it to “what the heck.”

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

I’ve only done the what the heck RnG in Crawford but would also like to try the Impact RnG as well. I think Impact is only a 5K, though, right?

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

That’s impressive you were able to complete each stage. I read somewhere that the vast majority of competitors fail to do that. My first, and so far only, RnG had me DNF every single stage except one. Very humbling!

I forget the brand (DeSantis maybe?), but the Waxahachie Academy has 1911 holsters.

Re: Off The Beaten Path - Tennessee Colony, TX & Yard, TX

Interesting history. My Dad and I went hog hunting at Boar Creek Ranch in Tennessee Colony about 3 years ago. Quiet, rural area with some good hog hunting.

Re: Help me decide: 1-4x Scopes

I have the Burris’s “budget” Tac30 and love it. Granted, it’s the only 1-4x optic I’ve ever shot with, so I can’t really compare it to any other variable. However, I had a chance to really test it out in rainy, mud-filled conditions, accidentally banging it against trees and wooden and chain link fe...

Re: Today in the Dems control of the House

https://hudson.house.gov/press-releases/hudson-reintroduces-national-concealed-carry-reciprocity/ A nation concealed carry reciprocity bill was introduced on the 3rd of January.

Re: Shotgun suggestions

I really like my pump action Mossberg Maverick 88 (the budget version of a Mossberg 500). But I like even more my two Winchester Model 12s (a 1930 16 gauge and a mid-50’s 12 gauge) I got used in the past year or so. The Winchesters are built like tanks, have buttery-smooth actions and can be taken d...
