Re: Post your favorite, Safe Queen Shooter

I purchased too many guns recently so am on a self-imposed hiatus until 2019. Seeing these Pythons is not helping.

I like them all, but that Hi-Power looks real good.

Post your favorite, Safe Queen Shooter

Requirement. It's a Safe Queen - meaning you don't carry it, or at least not in any regular capacity. Shooter - must be a gun that you do run rounds through. Not a "it's too pretty/valuable to shoot" gun. Mine's new, but I'm really, really digging it. Sig Sauer P226 Single Action Only, in 9mm. Has D...

Higher than I guessed. There must be other studies. Wonder if those numbers are consistent?

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

Shot it outdoors this weekend, much fun was had. I am going to have to change the vertical grip. Need something with a little more thermal protection. Ordered an MP5 style grip from A3 Tactical. Hope to have it before the weekend. Had too much fun and forgot to get sound levels. http://i1383.photobu...

Re: Trouble Purchasing Rifle at Walmart

Running daily 4473s I've seen a ton of errors, oddities, etc., when it comes to identification. Twice this year I've caught incorrect zip codes on LTCs, that were off by a digit or two and never noticed by the license holder. Name mismatches are pretty common w/ middle names, initials, etc. Everythi...

My M&P9 Pro....and as far as I can tell, there's no difference between Gen 1 and M2.0 springs.

If anybody is in the Oct 22 and 23 class, let me know. Staying at the Best Western. Maybe we can fit a decent meal in.

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

Took an infrared thermometer to the range, but not a sound meter because it was indoors. I'll try to get an average next weekend.

Re: Winchester/NRA Marksmanship - challenging you!

Congratulations on another ladder! Keep after it. That's interesting about the M2.0. I just went through similar myself. My Gen 1 M&P was showing its age, so I started to setup up a M2.0. The stock trigger is definitely better than the gen 1. I also like the stiffer frame and the grip once I got it ...

Don't own either model, but have handled a bunch. The VP9 is a nice package. Feels good, great trigger.

Your application would probably have to go through a medical advisory board. That's more hoops to jump through, but is not insurmountable, and after your experience w/ the military you're no stranger to dealing with bureaucracy.
