Re: Bought a Ruger Wrangler today

I bought a Wrangler just for fun last year, same burnt bronze color. Be careful, it scratches real easy.

It will definitely slow you down; the cylinder doesn't drop out like a traditional revolver. Loading each chamber is one by one, and ejecting empties is one by one. 😕

I echo the words of those before me, and would like to add, it could use more contrast between text and background color, especially in the quick links drop-down menu. Very, very difficult to read on a tablet, especially if blue light filter is on.
Thanks !

It I try to consciously "shoot from reset", then I'm firing way slower than my natural USPSA double-tap cadence. I have to slow down to be able to feel it. I quit trying.

I'm good with calling it "that lever thingy on the left". Just sayin'... Ok, seriously, to the OP: Some pistols just don't 'fit' me. For example, M&P's feel awkward to me, but obviously thousands of people love them. The pistol isn't going to change to fit my hand, I'll have to change/...

Assuming you are right handed and your left hand is your support hand, your right thumb shouldn't be touching the slide release at all. Yes, that rubbing can be painful, but more importantly, touching the slide release will prevent the slide from locking back when the mag runs empty. When forming yo...

I am equal parts mortified, disgusted, embarrassed, saddened, and furious at the most recent display of Democrat treachery. There is literally nothing they won't do.

but the dem's have a good hold on the 18-30 year olds (im 31 so im almost in that group) that are too stupid and havent worked a real day in thier lives to realize what is needed.

Trump's hands have been tied regarding putting down "peaceful protests" because of the election. The headline would have read "Trump sends in Troops against American Citizens"'', or something equally stupid. Once he no longer has to worry about getting re-elected, he can take fir...

I will conserve ammo to the point I stop shooting before I ever spend a dime at Dick's/Field & Stream. Their leadership is hard-core anti-2nd amendment and uses a portion of their profits to advance Liberal gun control legislation. It's unconscionable for anyone who values their right to keep an...

I have one if the original MantisX devices from when they first came out. I used it at home a fair amount when new, but I rarely get it out anymore. The gun won't fit in the holster with it installed, so no draws, and it doesn't record well during live action shooting when rapid movements are involv...

That depends on your budget and/or how bad you want to shoot... If you've got nothing but pricy self defense rounds, I'd probably skip it. Since I reload and I'm pretty well stocked, I've shot more matches and more practice rounds this year than ever before. If I had to purchase off-the-shelf ammo, ...

Canik being an aerospace company is a rumor/belief/fantasy that has been floating around America for a couple years.

It's probably a pretty safe assumption that nearly everyone on this forum believes the 2nd amendment of the Bill Of Rights needs to be preserved.

Though i had roughly 5k primers at the time, just as the Vid was gaining non-stop attention and the run on ammo began, i ordered 5k of primers and another 4 lbs of SP from Graf's. It was probably among the last they had.
