Re: 2018's Best Handguns Under $400

The Ruger SR9C is under $400 and still a great gun. Have you ever had a chance to compare it to a Ruger American compact? I've been looking to get another Ruger, but have been torn between these two. I had one of the first RACs in my area.Probably the first since none of the local gunstores carried...

Re: Upgrades to your Canick.

I voted no because all that I've changed out has been the sights. It mostly fits my hands and I can hit well with it. Why screw up a good thing? Night Fision black rear with yellow front btw.

Re: Good morning.....burrr- its 41 on the south side of Bama

I'm told that my grandmother had wanted indoor plumbing and that my grandfather (who I never met, died before I was born) was apparently a stubborn old codger and started in with "an outhouse was good enough for my grandparents and parents etc". So my grandmother, in the 1910s, wearing the clothes t...

Re: voted today

40 some odd years ago I wrote a paper for a class at Indiana University examining what the writers of the Constitution intended by the 2nd Ammendment. To do this I looked up the commentary of such men as Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, et al. It was very clear that they intended it to be an individ...

Re: Black Friday Wish List

I've been looking at one of those CZ American bolt action 22 rifles. There was a guy sighting one in at the range I go to and he was consistently getting one ragged hole groups at 25 yds. Like maybe 1/3 inch. He said he had 3 and they're all like that.

Re: Elizabeth Warren got a scare last night.....

Had a girl at work one time tell me that her great great grandmother was a Cherokee. I told her that the blonde hair and blue eyes were a dead giveaway.

The little lady watches Rachel Maddow a couple of times a week. I usually go out in the garage and do whatever but I was passing through the room on one of her anti Kavanough rants. She was stating that the claims the woman (what was her name Butler?) made were not political because she filed her co...

I went and voted today. Since I couldn't find a single person that it didn't make me sick to vote for I decided to vote with only one issue in mind. Defend 2A. Sorry if that upsets you but it was the best that I could come up with. Rock on NRA.

Re: Who carries a Canik

My Elite is my edc. I carry at 3:30 using a clinger no print wonder IWB. My personal philosophy is to use a weapon that will handle any problem that may come up first and to worry about concealing it second. Warm weather just requires wearing a loose fitting shirt for a cover garment, I find that a ...

Mine was just something I came up with on the spot. Since I now have a great granddaughter I thought it appropriate. Born in 1955.

I guess you could call this Elite range report III

I haven't posted anything on my pistol for a long time basically because I had nothing to report. I've sorta lost count of how many rounds I've shot at this point, except that I know I've blown through 2k. The last 500 or so have been Winchester NATO spec ammo that I bought at walmart for 27 bucks f...

Re: Great post on law of self defense from a true expert

There was a case a few years ago, 2008 I believe. An officer named Tim Gramins got in a shootout with an armed robber. Gramins was armed with a Glock 21 .45 ACP with Speer Gold Dot 230 grain ammo. He fired 33 shots and scored 17 hits before the robber finally went down. These are the kind of inciden...

Re: Excessive barrel wear on the slide

Yeah it has to do with the nature of cerakote. Since the stuff is sprayed on and then baked you can get high points in the finish where it is a little thicker than others. It should settle down once the high points break in.

Re: Why no TP9 sub compact?

I would be delighted to hear that gca 68 was allowed to expire. I bought a few BUG guns when it was in effect and it screwed them up for the user. My Beretta model 70 in 22 had a thumb rest in the plastic grip that make it awkward to hold. The Taurus 38 had some oversized wooden grips that had never...

Re: Why no TP9 sub compact?

I probably should have added that as far as I know the subcompact guns are being manufactured inside the US. Sig for instance makes the 365 in a facility in this country. If any of the other foreign companies are importing any subcompacts I'm not sure how exactly they are getting around GCA 68. This...
