Re: Alternative ammo.

No pistol ammo. The .40 and 10mm lasted a bit longer than the 9mm before it was gone. Some calibers like .357 sig, 9x23, 38 super I doubt anyone stocks a lot during normal times. Right now if your buying ammo, everyone has 17hmr and lots of shotgun ammo. I bought 4 boxes of 12 gauge at Walmart just ...

And only my new Beretta 92C has this course sandy colored material inside the slide and down in the magazine. Only thing I can think of here is the firearm was new and after they are manufactured they use some funky grease to long-term store or ship them. Did you give the 92C a good cleaning before...

I'm guessing this was commercial ammo and not hand-loaded?
Yes new ammo I was able to get before the prices went crazy. I did not notice any problems shooting it. It all sounded and felt the same.

What causes this? I was out with 3 pistols and shot around 160 rounds of Magtech 9mm. Picking up my brass I found 2 that seem to have a hole in primer. And only my new Beretta 92C has this course sandy colored material inside the slide and down in the magazine.

I was at Rural King Saturday morning. They had some 9mm. The 300 round value pack was a better deal, but you were limited to 1. I checked out $117 for 500 rounds. Pretty excited about that in today's market. When I left there was 1 value pack left and maybe 8 boxes of 50 rounds.

Sunday was an awesome fall day. I splurged and took 200 rounds out with the new Beretta. What a fat grip! I had some years ago owned a Taurus 92 so it wasn't a total surprise. Thin grips will be on my shopping list. I think a brown or black cherry would look good against the black. It has a slide re...

I bought a used Remington 870 Express the other day for $250 bucks , gun is in good condition. Came with the 26" barrel , I bought a used 18" barrel off of a guy for 60 bucks and will swap it out to make the gun a good home defense shotgun. I have a Mossberg 500 that I haven't shot in awh...

I'm picking up a Beretta 92 compact after work today. Something I've wanted for a long time. But I'm not sure it's a good time to be spending money. And work has been slow (no overtime) heading towards the election. I've not been shooting as much. But sure will be excited to try out the Beretta.

That's just weird. Guy has all these guns and he shoots up a store. He's losing all those weapons and ammo I assume.

Not as great as $399, but PSA has them again for $499. Got one on the way.

If you must buy ammo, 40 is a good bit cheaper than 9mm now. I only have one 40, but I'm glad I do!

I was on a ammoseek this morning. $550 for a cheap case of 9mm! Whoa. In comparison 40 Smith & Wesson is somewhat reasonable. Around $320 a case.

I decided to try these on my 43X. They really made a big difference in my ability to shoot this pistol well. Since I've had an Elite, I really liked the solid black rear and a bright front sight. The front post on the Hackathorn is a night sight, but I really love how bright the orange is. It just s...

I have a Glock 43X that is easily the most comfortable 9mm I own to carry. With that said I don't own any of the other brands of similar sized models. If I was you I would go to a large gun store and see what you can find that feels good in your hand. How you carry a gun may depend on your build. I'...

What's funny is .40 and 10mm, I can find cheaper than 9mm some places. And more available. In these panic times 9mm is the 1st to go. Owning weapons in several calibers is advantageous. And who sets the price on ammo? Use Federal for an example. They are selling everything they can make and they are...

PSA email this morning had this in the daily deal, $399. I've wanted one. I imagine it's a shade bigger than an elite? The FS compact is a 4.25" barrel with 13 round mags. And when I clicked on it they were already sold out of them. Anyone owned one? They get more for that price I'll be all abo...

I had a ParaOrdnance double stack .45. I loved the feel of the gun, I have bit hands and it filled out great. Unreliable as hell. I was lucky to get a full magazine through it. Didn't matter what ammo. This was back in the mid 90's. Maybe they got better but Ill never have one again. I'm surprised....
