Re: New to Concealed Carry, have a few questions

Welcome! :thewave A few thoughts: Glocks will make you a careful gun handler. Remember- reholstering is NEVER a competition event. I've settled on appendix, with either a Keepers' or RCS Eidolon. http://keepersconcealment.com/ https://rcsgear.com/eidolon-appendix-or-strongside-iwb/ I like Phlster's ...

Now there's a nifty idea, particularly for places like California/New Jersey/Canada. "It's just a coin purse, officer". :biggrinjester:
Really well made, and pretty stout if you have a handful of Eisenhower dollars to carry. :mrgreen:

Re: AZ: Kidnapping foiled

I haven’t decided yet for sure, but I’m thinking a 21” (extended) unit. I can’t decide between a black chrome Asp, or the Airweight version with a vinyl handle and aluminum extensions. The airweight weighs just over 8 oz, and the black chrome version weighs twice that. I imagine that the heavier un...

Re: FL: Two CHL’s kill each other in what may have started as mistaken road rage

Have to say, I'm not real keen on the, "pulled over to apologize..." concept. Nice in theory, but just far too many unintended potentials- as evidenced.

Re: Bond Arms advertised on radio today

Really well made, and definitely solid guns. Hardly lightweight, but they shoot some potent calibers from small packages. :cool: Several years ago, they bought the rights to the Boberg's XR9-S, and its one of the few "unique" guns, I really would like to have. http://mousegunaddict.blogspot.com/2012...

Re: DIY mailboxes vs. thieves

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

I believe you'll really like the 930, it feels a bit more responsive than the inertia guns, to me. Tuning and customization links: OR3Gun. At the least, their MST is a very worthwhile investment. http://or3gun.com/OR3GUN/about_or3gun_combo.htm Hahn Precision Safety Rail combo This is nice because (d...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

Emerson pulled out his 17, cleared the chamber, inserted a loaded mag, and hurled it at a pile of rocks in a gorge. They all went down to retrieve his pistol. Everyone eared up, and Emerson emptied the mag into the hillside. He asked who would replicate the demo with the 1911s on hand. Dead silence...

I use all tools very hard and in adverse conditions at times. However, I never abuse them. Throw that Glock at a pile at rocks and it may shoot back at you.
As I indicated, per Emerson, it was a cleared chamber. No fools were at that table. :cool:

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

Not gonna fight with you bro. Wilson, Brown, etc., command a high price because they are the Ferraris of the firearms world. A Glock with a grand of mods is pretty self-defining as more inherently fragile than the base platform. A stock RIA or Springfield will be more tolerant of being dropped in th...

Re: Gun-handling - Ken Hackathorn and Bill Wilson go off

With regard to closing the cylinder on a revolver, Ken is shown on the video placing his fingers on the cylinder and pushing it closed, which is much better than snapping it sharply to the right to close it. However, before Gander Mountain Frisco closed (shortly after opening, by the way!), a gentl...
