Re: "Nice" pistol reccomendations

I'd say a Gold Cup or a BHP Standard with adjustable sights. Don't know anything about the P&R Smith, but Nathan usually makes good recommendations.

Re: Soaking/cleaner

If a DI had ever seen as much oil on my weapon as I see on people's guns today, I'd still be PT'ing. x(

Re: What is Your Primary Carry and Why

My daily carry is my Browning Hi Power Standard with Hornady 124 gr. XTP's. It is accurate, quick on the target, and is ergonomically pleasing to carry and shoot. I carry IWB in a leather, double clip holster from Bullard Leather in Adzle, Tx. Sometimes, I forget I have it on. I experimented with a ...

Re: AARRGG!

I can understand the idea that the .22 will be the easiest for her to hit with and, if it is a semi-auto, she can just empty it into the guy. I taught my wife to shoot a .380. It ain't a whole lot better, but it makes a bigger hole and she can actually hit with it. I wanted to move her up to a .38 a...

Re: Loving Henry lever guns right now

Refresh my memory...didn't Remington once make a .308 lever rifle? It wasn't your classic Winchester look, but a more modern, sleek looking rifle.

Re: Loving Henry lever guns right now

Love lever guns! I have four of them...the Marlin 30/30 I shot in HS that my dad gave me, the Marlin 336C 30/30 I bought when the Remington take over rumors started (Rem screwed them up, predictably), a pre-64 94/22, and a 94/22 I picked up at an estate sale a while back. Great guns. A Henry is next...

Re: Optics Rail for Mini-14

Thanks, Mister B. I am looking at a Tru Glo, but the Bushnell would be ok, too. Another question...I am sure it comes with all kinds of instructions for sighting in. What would be wrong with firing from a rest with iron sights, putting one dead center, and then mounting the optic and adjusting it to...

Optics Rail for Mini-14

I have never used red dot optics, but want to try one for my Mini-14 Ranch. I notice a lot of difference in price among all these rails. Brownell's has the things for 140 bucks or more, and some places have the things for a few bucks. All I need is something reliable to hold a red dot scope for SD p...

Re: Former CNN Anchor & Husband In Shootout

I just assumed that anyone working for CNN was a lib. There are plenty of libs who own guns while condemning them. I know several guys who served with me who are friggin' libs now. Has she always spoken out in favor of the 2nd…or just now. Maybe I am wrong and I hope I am.

Re: Question

I agree with Mr. B and Hand and Steel. Get a real rifle. I'd go with a Mini 14 in 5.56. More rugged than an AR, less maintenance, more reliable...and you never know when you might need to reach out and touch someone. You can find them for 700 or so new.

Re: Police/Military use of Browning Hi Power

A buddy of mine worked for the State Dept. (in the late 70's) after college and the Corps and he carried a BHP his entire career. I don't think it was standard issue then, so they must have been allowed some choice. I know he was stationed in some embassies for part of his career.
