Re: Testing 9mm Loads in my XDM 5.2

rotor and flechero, I have used Fiocchi in the past and it has been very reliably, but accuracy no better than others I have tried in my Glocks. Have not tried it however in my XDM. On yours and flechero's suggestion, I will probably pick up some Fiocchi and S&B and give it a try. My shotgun (870) f...

Re: Testing 9mm Loads in my XDM 5.2

Jusme, Just between you and me, I do like the Shiner product a little better, but because I work AB, I get my Zie for free - and after the first two....... Other than that I am a bit partial to XX at certain times. AB is always looking for other brands to swallow up and there is no telling what migh...

Testing 9mm Loads in my XDM 5.2

It’s a long post, but if you are a bit anal, like I can be, and a tinkerer you may find the following interesting or beneficial. In an effort to determine which factory ammunition I would use in my XDM 5.2, I tested a wide variety of factory 9mm ammunition as I don’t have the space or time to reload...

Re: Four years in jail for killing police officer, no-knock raid, no drugs found, no trial yet

IMHO no knock warrants are a violation of constitution, given out too easily and a sign of laziness and cowboying. Completely innocent citizens have died because of it. Just wait for him to leave the property, take him and then search the property. A lot of innocents died at Waco because of this kin...

Re: Former chief of the Texas Rangers thinks 2A is about hunting

The title is incorrect. It does not seem to me that he is saying the 2nd applies only for hunting. It seems like he is saying that the weaponry available now far more deadly. I agree in my heart to a lot of what he is saying in that I want very much to keep high end weapons out of the hands of peopl...

Vote With Your Wallet

I am the sort of person who votes with his wallet. This is why Kroger will never receive another dime from me. Corporate at Kroger has decided to ban any gun related magazines from their magazine stand. I guess it is some kind of short sighted or ignorant political stand or statement they wish to ma...

Re: Youtube Suspends Gun Manufactuers

Speaking of Kroger, it looks like they have made corporate level decision not to have any gun magazines on their magazines stands anymore. I vote with my wallet and they won't get another dime of my money.

Re: Franklin Armory coming out with non-NFA 11.5” AR variant

Never really understood the lust for short barreled 5.56 other than the fact that it is easier to maneuver with. You give up velocity and the signature is really, really loud unless suppressed. Seems to me that this would be better suited as a 9mm, 45ACP or 10mm. If another action is required before...

Thought to Ponder with a Few Idle Minutes

Be warned that this post is for those who like to muse odd things and have a few extra minutes to while away. I had read sometime back that one small reason an AR would not or could not be as accurate as a good bolt action gun is that essentially the AR is hammer fired whereas most bolt guns are ba...

QUIT CHANGING THE RULES!!!!

Anyone know if the Springfield Armory ED4 Contour of the Springfield XD will fit into the CCP box. Online measurements indicate they are both 1/8 inch too tall - bur yet Bill Wilson double stack 9mm is just right (can you say bull hockey - the fix is in). I think people are leaving IDPA because they...

Understanding the 2nd Amendment

As we all knew, there would be calls for strict gun control or an outright demand to repeal the 2nd Amendment. I am not a paid history authority, just a self taught history buff like most of you. There was a time way back when, that I did some heavy research and looking into what the founding father...

Re: Just for Fun Time Travel Exercise – Alamo

Indeed TAM, well played and entertaining. I was thinking more along the lines of you could return to present time after the battle. We will never know, but I don’t think defeating Santa Anna at San Antonio would have changed the outcome of Texas becoming a Republic and then a state within the United...

Re: This is SO Wrong...

These type forfeiture laws are something the Nazis would have loved. It is a law ripe for abuse - and it does get abused. It is confiscation of property without due process. If the person is convicted of a crime and the assets tie to it, then perhaps it is a viable law, but under this law as it is, ...
