Re: Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving, all. I got my to-go plate from the in-laws when I got home last night. We've got our Thanksgiving meal planned for Sunday.

I'm sitting here at my desk trying to figure out which Black Friday emails to forward to my wife as hints.

Re: Really like my Elite Sub Compact so far

Thanks for the update. I've yet to find the SC in the wild, so I haven't had to resist buying one. Good reports like this aren't helping... My Elite is enough of a known quantity that this is one pistol I'd consider buying without going hands-on. Definitely. It's an Elite in a smaller package, so y...

Re: I can't even Remington bro

Even the CT Supreme Court, in overturning the Appeals Court decision, said that proving the case would be a "Herculean effort." The decision also provisionally allowed the suit to continue, though I'm not sure how they would revisit the issue as the case continues. I'm not concerned about the merits...

Re: need your thoughts

2nd for Paul Harrell.

Also, Shooting the Bull's Ammo Quest series on YouTube.

I often find myself leaning to the lighter/faster side of the equation. The slightly higher velocity of the 124gr gives a bigger envelope for the round to expand.

Re: I Didn’t realize...

I've got a 1974 M71 .22LR. It makes for a nice intro pistol. If you know where to find mags, though, let me know.

Re: 20 round magazine question

Starman, I went to your posted link however I could not find a way to actually purchase the magazine sleeves. When you bought yours how did you do it??? On the right, click on "order this printed" then select one of the services. Open Ballistics seems to have folded. There's a guy on the FB group t...

Re: MAC (Military Arms Channel) Removed from Instagram

I don't see the silencing of gun channels being the catalyst for it, but there will come a day when they silence someone government does care about. Right now, social media enjoys protection as both publishers and providers. Essentially, "we're not responsible for what anyone posts, but we'll shut y...

Best thing is to go to youtube and watch some Paul Harrell videos... He probably has the best real world tests of self defense ammo out there...
And the ammo quest series of videos by shooting the bull.

I love the new and improved high tech fleece bullet stop.

In a sub compact
Do you reccomed +p
In some testing, HST 124gr actually performs better than 124gr +p in a ~3"barrel. The short barrel doesn't really give extra powder time to burn usefully.

I thought I was the only one, though I'm not terribly concerned. It doesn't seem to be a complete redesign and we know the original works (ignoring the checkered history of compact 1911s).

Re: Prefered self defense carry rounds?

Right now I've got a motley assortment of Hornady XTP, Hornady Critical Duty, and Federal HST. As I cycle out the older ammo, I'm replacing it with HST 124gr.

I like the concept of the Inceptor ARX ammo. The tests look impressive, but there's no supporting data for it yet.
