Ammo stock

I'm noticing true premium grade defensive ammunition (Federal HST, Winchester SXT) is becoming harder and harder to find online. It took me three days to locate any fifty round boxes of 147 grain HST +P 9mm and then they only had nine boxes. I can't find any Winchester Ranger SXT 147 grain or the 12...

Re: Underwood Extreme Penetrator

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 after all. I'm curious who performed these tests? Note that you have gelatin and then you have FBI Standard gelatin. Gelatin is easily manipulated ...

Re: Stopping power matters

There is a gunman shooting up a school with an AK47. You have a Glock 20 10mm and a Ruger LCP .380 to choose from; which do you grab, and why? I'd take an AR pistol over both options, but I guess the answer "depends" on what you have on you that day Well sure but c'mon, that's not a serio...

Re: Stopping power matters

but "stopping power" as commonly defined as a one shot to end a lethal threat/conflict does not reliably exist Agreed; yet me must acknowledge that there is in fact a difference. The same principles that make the .45-70 a better choice than 5.56 for grizzly bear apply in making a .45 ACP ...

Indeed; I continue to carry in a Safepacker to work every day. In your case however, since you've already been "made", they're going to know what it is. Since it's choir practice and not very physical, can you get away with appendix carry?

Re: Against a knife

Pepper spray guy is another issue entirely and I failed to address it. Never put yourself between a gunman and his potential threat. To clarify my position, I'm not criticizing the gunman for his decisions as they were his to make. I'm only pointing out that from a tactical standpoint, he endangered...

Re: Against a knife

I'm conflicted in how to respond. On the one hand I hate to be "that guy" who points out everything he did wrong. On the other hand, I'm not familiar with the laws in Seattle but I don't want anyone to repeat the mistakes. While it messes up the leftist narrative about gun-wielding cowboys...

Re: Stopping power matters

stopping power is a fallacy. shot placement is paramount. disrupting vital body systems (skeletal, muscular, pulmonary, cardiovascular, nervous, or psychological) is key. I both agree, and disagree. I do not believe in the concept of "stopping power" as a guarantee of outcome. I do howeve...

You can get it either way. I'm not a big fan of the three dot night sights though and find two dot acquisition to be faster.

I like my Ram 2500 with Cummins, but with my last Lance camper and boat behind, I wished for a 1 ton dually, and the total load was less than 7000 lbs. 401415920062274.jpg Is the issue with being single rear wheel, or is it your gear ratio?

Re: New truck

I definitely recommend upgrading to at least a 3/4 ton, if not 1 ton. If you use it to potential, it will last as long as a half ton truck. If you use it like you use a half ton truck and are typically running around at 10% of its capacity, it will last "forever" with proper maintenance. I...
