Re: Racking the Slide

Old way. Rear serrations. Also like the look of a smooth slide front. No need to keep my fingers, etc. at the muzzle.

Great for you making a come back! I have always taken comfort in other people's misery; it could always be worse. Personally, I've made a miraculous come-back from bi-lateral hip replacement surgery.

This is the video that I thought was interesting. Comparing 9mm Extreme DEFENCE (not Penetrator) compared to Federal HST in BB calibrated gel with stuff in front.

Underwood Extreme Penetrator

Hello, Nate and friends! I've always subscribed to 147gr for 9mm defense rounds, in particular Federal HST from the heavy is better camp. Sceptical, Ive now seen a few tests in gelatin, pork ribs, denim, etc. For Underwood solids, but light weight SD ammo where I'm thinking it might not be a gimmick...

Re: CCW carrier shot by police after gun falls out of holster

Usually I'd chalk it it up to cop sees struggle and misidentifies the bad guy like most law enforcement shootings gone bad. This is why the citizen has a much better hit rate of the actual bad guy -- one knows WHO is beating him to death! In this case, the cops just stood around??? Were they so enth...

Re: Rangefinder recommendations?

Didn't see that it had the built in inclinometer for calculating horizontal distance, in addition to point to point. Usually, horizontal is what counts for trajectory except for the longer time in flight at steep angles. Another feature I like in my rangefinder is the ability to continously update t...

Re: Magnification range for yardage?

Old thread, but 4x power for shooting 200 yards is PLENTY IMO. Now, if you don't use binocs for sizing up the antlers, judging WHETHER you want the animal or to verify if legal then higher power would be useful. For some reason adjustable scopes set at higher than 5x power sacrifice just enough eye ...

Re: What a difference 0.75mm can make!

I heard that!

I always thought my full size CZ carried comfortably OWB on the hip in my Galco Concealable but I just don't carry the full size too much. I'm going to have to take some more measurements.

Not those kind of measurements! Get your head out of the sewer, man!

Great Price on HST

IDK -- they might have increased their S&H charges since I last ordered (or maybe my box weight kept creeping up as I shopped around for more "stuff") but I couldn't help but throw in a couple more boxes of Federal HST at this price: https://www.outdoorlimited.com/ProductDetails.asp?Pr...

Re: 9mm NATO ammo

Just thought that I'd add, MEM 124 NATO out of Germany is good stuff as well based on groups. I didn't chrono it myself, but allegedly is slightly less powered than NATO?? Hmmm . . . thought it was NATO. Anyway, I don't have as much stick time with yet, but the first couple of hundred rounds down ra...

What a difference 0.75mm can make!

I mostly carry OWB at 3:30 to 4:00. I have a very awesome UBG pancake holster featuring relatively wide-spread belt snaps that I use for my CZ 2075. I really like the quick on/off capability of the snaps having to go in and out of criminal safe zones in the course of my business. If I’m not mistaken...

Re: Red Dots

IIRC, no accuracy gain up close or further away from the eye so long as you can see the dot. Furthermore it need not be centered. I will be experimenting with a Delta Point Pro 2.5 moa on a CZ85B once it comes back from the smith (CGW). I'm not interested in co witnessing with Irons for my non-SD pu...

Oops. Just had a premature slide lock with one more round to go with a Mecgar 8 round mag. Hmmmmm....

My 1911 mags pretty much see the same number of rounds, being all stuffed awaiting duty and emptied one after another. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Re: Most Reliable "GI"-type 1911s

Touché. Should have said "loved one".

I bought my Rem R1S some time ago for its traditional styling and like it much. Larger dots suit my eyes, even though Ive learned my most accurate shooting comes from ignoring the dots in favor if tiny slivers of light (for paper obviously).
