Re: Radical Firearms Super deal on AR?

I bought a 300 black out upper from Radical (around $325.00 I think) and I couldn't be happier with it. They make quality products. A little slow on delivery and some occasional backlogs but a good price and quality. I see them listed at Centerfire Systems from time to time.

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

Remember if the hammer is exposed you can cock it first. That can dramatically reduce the amount of force required to rack the slide. If she gets a gun for your birthday, then maybe you'll at least get to keep all of yours. Honey-Sweetie-Cutie Pie has liberated two of mine... so far. Don't tell her...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

If you take her shopping as I did, have her try the Walther PK380. My wife and daughter both love them. Every class I teach and someone needs a loaner, I let them try it. I should call Walther and demand a commission for the number I have sold. They are solid, dependable and priced very well. I hav...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

My wife has small hands with little grip strength. She has a S&W 9mm Shield that she struggles to operate. The recoil is a little more than she likes, but she perseveres. We decided to try .380 pistols and after shooting several (6 or 7 ) different models she liked the Glock 42 the best. I steered ...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

Surgeon, you will receive a lot of recommendations, but until your wife actually gets a chance to load, operate, and shoot various guns, you won't have a good idea on what will work for her. I know a lot of people, think small hands=small gun, for the best application, but, felt recoil is more of a...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

I carry a Curve. I can hide it under just about anything, although I've made a couple of things to help with the carrying, this little gun is made for women to carry. I love the darn thing. I love this video about pulling the slide. It's slightly goofy, but it's good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

The SIG P238 (.380ACP) is a very popular handgun with women. It's easy to rack the slide, it has real sights, and mild recoil. If she's left-handed, an ambi-safety kit is available. Like all SIGs, they are overpriced. The best price Martha found was $519, with Tru Glo sights, at Academy . Chas. Tha...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

We've discussed a .38 special for her conceal carry but she wants to test using a semi-auto. Just a reminder that there is no semi/non-semi license anymore. You can take the test with either and carry either. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. Was not aware that part had changed. That ...

Re: RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

I'm not sure if its easier to rack the slide, but you may want to try a Sig P238 or P938. The P938 is easier to shoot than its small size would suggest; mind you its not an inexpensive choice.. Thanks for the suggestion. Just looked up the price....they're proud of em aren't they. I'll look into it...

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMALL COMPACT SEMI FOR PETITE LADY

Good news and bad news. Good news: Momma wants to get her LTC. Bad news: Although she's a good shot, she's tiny with little hand strength needed for racking the slide and chambering a round. We've discussed a .38 special for her conceal carry but she wants to test using a semi-auto. So the question ...

Hang up on 911. 3. Call my attorney and explain situation. 4. Wait for police to arrive. 5. Follow attorney...
