Re: 2 New Guns: a Ruger PC9 carbine, and a Mossberg 930 SPX

Congrats! That reminds me to take my PC9 out for some exercise! I put a PA micro red-dot on mine - works great, even given my astigmatism issues. I have a 930 JM Pro, not exactly the same animal as the SPX , but it’s a good shooter. You may find that you need somewhat higher powered loads for reliab...

Re: Poll: Native or Transplant?

We moved here from Flint, Michigan in 1997. Kids have moved away, but my wife and I love it here.

Re: IP banned

I’m experiencing the same issue. I too have ATT Gigapower service.

I do not have the same experience on other sites.

Re: Bought a new toy

I picked up mine at my local range last week. Immediately converted it to use Glock mags. Mine shot well with 115, 124 and 147 grain ammo. I noticed quite a bit more gas since the action is closer to your face than a 9mm pistol is. I have no issue with its function, but oh my! this thing is homely. ...

Re: ball vs flat vs hollow point for range ammo?

I like flat nose projectiles for the range and competition use: they produce well-defined holes. Round nose projectiles tend to tear the paper.

Finding FP ammo is not an issue for me since I reload.

Re: Colion Noir Lashes Out At Claims NRA Is Racist

I do enjoy Mr. Noir’s content. Why does the headline at BA employ a phrase like “lashes out” instead of something that has a more reasonable tone, perhaps “responds to”? It’s on a gun-friendly site, not a mainstream newspaper, for goodness sake!

M1 Carbine
SMLE
FAL
“Fine” 1911 in 45 ACP. I have a Kimber Custom II, but that doesn’t scratch the itch.

Re: M1 Garand CMP

I recommend the CMP route. I don’t have experience with a field grade, but my M1 308 Special is an outstanding firearm and my buying experience was positive as well.

No need for new terms. Appeasement is appropriate. :banghead:

Re: "The Strange Death of Europe"

Abraham, it’s worse than that. Mark Steyn has a book out - I don’t recall the title for certain - that describes the falling birth rates among native Europeans, and that even if they didn’t take in more immigrants, their European cultures would basically cease to exist in the next 75 years or so. T...

Re: Customer Brass

Re: brass catcher, I don’t think there would be much to say. I just used a Caldwell pic rail model today with my CZ 805 Bren carbine. Worked to perfection. When I first got the Bren I was surprised to find that it ejected the brass forward of the firing line. Needless to say, not much brass to pick ...

Re: Customer Brass

My local ranges don’t have an issue with picking up my own brass. At the closest, an indoor range, I mention to the RO’s that I’d like to keep my brass. Assuming it’s not too busy, they will cordon off a space on the back/side wall where they sweep it. I also tell them to not be picky if something e...

Re: My Leftist Son....! ? !

Sigh. Yes, one out of two for me, and I have had to refrain from looking at their/their spouse's social media posts to prevent a cerebral aneurysm. And yes, they have firearms in my safe, just not the "evil" kind. Come to think of it, I am prevented from finishing two "evil black rifle" builds b/c I...
