Re: Where do you shoot?

Right at the Thoracic Cavity! :lol: My local indoor range of choice, Fox Valley Shooting Range, is managed, run, and staffed by some of the finest people you'd ever want to hang around. Fairly new to the game, it outclasses the other local ranges by far. Fully modernized air circulation, very well l...

Re: New rifle, err pistol, err 9mm space blaster fun

Saw that on Guns & Ammo this week, and thought it was pretty cool. I like the spare mag storage, ambi set-up, folding "stock"; they thought the design out pretty well for what it is. I was wondering how it would hold up as a Home Defense set up, just for more stability with shooting. Size seems righ...

Re: New member added to the fleet today

I love my wife's SC. It carries on the great shooting qualities as the Elite, which is one of my two carry guns. We have 300 rounds through hers. Suffering an occasional failure to go into battery which I hope ceases over the next couple hundred rounds. Got sleeves for both mags to cover the rear ga...

Re: Does anyone have a sturdy safe?

As well as a whole-house alarm system - when we put our safe in our bedroom closet, we reinforced the knob and plate assembly - 3 1/2 in screws. Same on the bedroom door. We lock both doors when leaving the house. With an alarm going off and having to bust through 2 doors to even begin messing with ...

Re: Stimulus Check - What are you buying?

Spare mags, maybe a set of night sights for my Beretta APX Compact, holster for my Springfield RO Elite Operator, ammo, remodel a bathroom...all depending on what we receive.
A few lottery tickets :P

Re: Handgun "trigger reach" Canik vs Taurus

Trigger reach is the correct term, and is a very important factor in purchasing a handgun. The proper reach should allow the trigger finger to engage the trigger somewhere from the middle of the pad of the fingertip to the first joint. As well, with your thumb you should be able to reach and manipul...

Re: New Member from Cleve. OH

I am a big fan of Black Hills Honey Badger; the fluted tips vs. the hollow cupped tips.

Feeds and shoots fine in my wife's SC Blackout.

Re: Current State of Guns, Ammo, Mags, Etc.

Interesting how much defensive ammo I was able to buy, but FMJ is what's at a premium - why isn't it the other way around if people are in panic mode? My LGS haunt yesterday - 2/3rds of all guns and ammo gone. Handguns, long guns/A/R's....it was like the place got robbed. It looked so surreal. Neil ...

Clean my wife's SC.....Kind of more like a "honey-do" than something fun. :roll: Since I'm conserving ammo, and shying away from the indoor range for this stretch, even more dry fire practicing than usual, which is normally a lot. Elite is my man carry, so use it most often for this regiment, though...
