Re: Had a few rounds explode in my Ruger SR22 pistol.

Just wanted to post the conclusion to this. Ruger replaced my barrel, extractor, and slide. I inspected the gun before shipping it to them and it looks like there was an indentation made on the chamber from dry firing. Guessing that's reason the casings fit so tight in the chamber. No more dry fire...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

I picked up a compact Remington 1187 Sportsman in 20 gauge for my wife today at Walmart. It was on clearance for $250. You can't beat that price for a semi auto shotgun! Trying to get her to go shoot with me every once in a while, so this was perfect for our needs. Not as nice as my Beretta A300 tho...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

If you are going the semi-auto on a budget route, take a look at the Beretta A300 Outlander. My son and I have had these for several years now and have not had any issues with them. Not as pretty as other Berettas, but not as expensive either. Franchi Affinity and Weatherby SA-08 also come to mind f...

Re: Metal Detectors are Wal-Mart???

I seriously doubt that they are metal detectors. My bet would be that they are RFID readers for asset tracking and inventory, or possibly a test for a new "scan and go" type system that allows customers to avoid waiting in line for a cashier.

Re: Ruger announces new .40 cal PC Carbine model

.40 cal makes sense, it just requires a few changes from 9mm. Agree. I'm guessing that since the Glock 9mm and .40 cal share frames, the magazine adapter didn't need to change. To go to a .45, they would need to make a new magazine adapter for the Glock mags. 9mm to .40 was probably just a barrel s...

Re: Is the SIG P365 fixed?

I wanted one of these when they first came out, but then the problems started appearing. OK, new gun, has some issues. Then Sig responded stating that a small percentage were affected because of a small batch of strikers out of spec. Ok, how many strikers in that batch and what serial numbers could ...

Re: Missouri bill would require adults aged 18-34 to own AR-15

IIRC, although that city in GA does have that law, they also have not charged or prosecuted anyone that does not own a gun as the law/ordinance says. I suspect that would also be the case in MO if their bill does become a law. So what is the point of having the law if not enforced? Sounds like poli...

Re: Missouri bill would require adults aged 18-34 to own AR-15

Can't say I like the law. Sounds good, until I remember my position on the government forcing folks to purchase another product that they did not want... Obama Care anyone?

What exactly is a location restricted knife? A knife of any kind? Knife over so many inch's? Knife that works on a,b or c mechanism?
If the blade is longer than 5.5", then it is a location restricted knife.

One is forced to wonder why the alleged assailant is wearing a surgical mask. In addition, when did a Mossberg .22 become an "assault rifle"?
Maybe it has been edited, but I didn't see "assault rifle" in the story...
