Re: What's the Origin of Your User Name?

I was stationed in Saudi Arabia for a few years and a bunch of the guys would ride motorcycles in the sand dunes on the weekend. They invited me to come along, but I had didn't own a bike and, what's more, had never ridden one before. So, I bought a Yamaha Enduro, went to the desert and--let's just ...

Double-Action Only Semi-Automatic Pistol

Does anybody make a double-action only semi-automatic pistol? By that I mean a pistol that operates the same as a double-action revolver. The only thing the slide does is throw out the empty shell, it doesn't cock the hammer. I know there are a number of semi-autos that can be fired double-action fo...

Gotcha... you can pull the recoil pad and measure to see or even drill a hole from the end to verify if that's the case.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a shot.

Have you looked at Boyd’s stocks? I think they have a 13” lop.
Nuts,

Thanks for the info--I just checked Boyd's and they'll make any LOP you want.

Re: Compact or Youth Stock for Ruger American in .270 Winchester

If it's a permanent solution, just cut it down where you actually want it and re-fit the recoil pad or plate. Worst case, any smith could do it fairly inexpensively flechero, It's a synthetic stock and I've been told you can't shorten it. If you did, you might cut it off past the surface that the r...

Compact or Youth Stock for Ruger American in .270 Winchester

Does anybody know where I can buy a compact- or youth-length stock for a Ruger American in .270 Winchester? I like the rifle, but the LOP is just too long for me (I think it's 14"). I would prefer one with a 13" or shorter LOP. Ruger offers one as a replacement, but only in rifles with the short act...

Anybody know where I can get an 18.5" barrel for my Mossberg 500 in 20 gauge? Mossberg used to have them, but I don't see one on their website now.

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: 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.
