Re: Rainy day. Decided I had too much money. Had a holster made for my large model 28

Figured what the hell it would be a nice barbecue or conversation gun. Had a all kydex outside the waistband holster made and I am digging it. Probably won't be an everyday carry kind of thing just when I'm feeling particularly revolver or flashy I guess. https://imgur.com/a/fwlZZSe :txflag: Odinva...

Re: Transferring a Handgun to My Adult Son

Don't know where else to post this, so here goes: I want to transfer ownership, i.e., give, a handgun to my adult son who lives in another city in Texas. As far as I know, the gun ( a S&W Model 10 manufactured in 1980) has never been registered under Texas laws. I (a private purchaser) bought it at...

Re: S&W .380 EZ sometime won't drop hammer on first trigger pull

To all who replied, apologies. It your (small) ham-fisted obdt svt who was causing the problem. I have small hands and short, stubby fingers and when I would try to disengage the thumb safety, it was pulling my palm up off the grip safety. I tried to train myself not to do this, but I just couldn't ...

Re: For those who may still be buying Nike

The moment I first saw Capernik (hope I spelled it INCORRECTLY--he doesn't deserve the respect of having his named spelled correctly) kneeling, I erased him from my mind. And when I saw that Niccky was sponsoring him, I did the same for them.

Yes. Private exchange of firearms between individuals requires no FFL transfer. Buying or gifting is no problem. They simply must be a Texas resident and have no felonies.

S&W .380 EZ sometime won't drop hammer on first trigger pull

I was dry-firing my .380 EZ last evening and sometimes, after racking the slide, I would put it in the holster, making sure that the thumb safety was on the safe position. I would then draw it, deactivate the thumb safety and make sure the grip safety was depressed and when I pulled the trigger it w...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

A friend of mine that shoots VERY well with a $10k+ Perazzi once told me that the $500 O/U 20 gauge I bought for my daughter will hit targets just as well as his gun. The only real difference is in how many you will be able to shoot over a lifetime, year, month, or week. Shooting a couple hundred r...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

A double eg. O/U is nice because of its ability to have 2 different chokes in the gun at the same time (I just use Imp Cylinder and Modified - and I can select which fires first, depending on the sequence of the clays presented to me). Other folks frantically change the chokes completely between st...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

The most popular choice seems to be a 12 gauge over/under. You can put a modified choke tube in one barrel for reach and an improved cylinder in the other for closer birds. Most (all?) O/U's allow you to choose which barrel fires first, so you can tailor that to your needs as you go. The extra weig...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

For autoloaders, it really depends on what price point you're looking for. Semi auto's I've handled and shot: Beretta - they make great shotguns. The A400 is a nice gun and comes in several trim packages from field to fancy. Benelli - Super Black Eagle 3 is a terrific gun. CZ - The 712 is a great g...

Re: What Shotgun and Choke for Sporting Clays

I use 12-gauge and Light Modified choke (Improved Cylinder is okay also). Nothing wrong with 20-gauge (if you're a pretty good shooter), but I don't recommend a pump for sporting clays. Yeah, I'm sure you're right that a pump is not the right tool for sporting clays and that the 20-gauge is OK if y...
