Re: Grandkids .22 rifle recommendation

My first 22 was a marlin model 80 bolt action magazine fed. My grandson's mother (my daughter)started him with a cricket . I like the bolt action single or mag fed as a starting rifle vs semi-auto. Iron sights are good start and the bolt action slows down the shooting process to allow deliberate act...

Forum members dog poll

Reading thru the forum posts, most of our members also seem to share a fondness for animals. I am guessing the poll percentage will be high on having a dog side. I almost called it owning a dog, but am sometimes not sure on who owns whom. LOL

Re: Favorite carry method?

Vertical shoulder holster or cross draw. I am a big guy (6'4" 250)so these carry positions allow me easy access to my pistol while driving without seatbelt getting uncomfortable or intangled. Right hand Cross draw(pistol on left hip) also keeps gun away from pto,lift and loader controls on my tracto...

Re: Double-Action Only Semi-Automatic Pistol

SCCY CP2 is DAO internal hammer with no safety. It has double strike capabilities, hammer strikes on every trigger pull. I happen to like the SCCY pistols and have 2 of them, well made and good fit and finish.

Re: Holster part 2

IMG_1015.JPG I make my own holsters also. One trick I learned for a custom fitted holster, is use a food vacuum sealer. I put my pistol in a heavy duty plastic freezer bag, put the pistol in a dampened holster, lay holster on apiece of 1/8 rubber on the diamond side of the vacuum bag (to keep diamo...

Re: Wife needs on body carry - belly band?

Had the same problem with my wife, strong side carry on a belt on a female makes the weapon stick out.I do not like off body carry and a pistol in a purse around grandchildren made me nervous. We tried belly bands ,kangaroo carry etc none really worked for her. Finally got her to try a true gun belt...

Re: Unicorn pistol

SCCY light weight dbl stack 9 mm 10+1. I have 2 and both have fired everything I have put in them. The mags use the same diameter and feed lip arrangement as my ruger P85 ,so with 1 extra notch mags are interchangeable

Re: LTC Not Accepted at Polling Location

Undoubtedly I really live in the sticks: paper ballots and no scan thingy.
The voting officials had large paper printouts and looked up my name. Actually put paper ballot in steel lock box.
