Re: Kudos for a "little known" holster maker

This is obviously and old thread. But I just wanted to follow up. I have carried my pistol in Wrights Predator holster (Pancake) daily since buying it. It has served me well and I couldn't be any happier with it, so I still endorse Wright Leather Works. He must be growing because I've noticed in my ...

Re: Sliding Glass Doors

I knew a feller who built a two story home with the first floor all concrete and no windows! (He actually painted windows on the side so the structure wouldn't look funny) Only openings were a front and back door......all steel, industrial quality, high-security level doors and locks. Second floor w...

The Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

What happened to the Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act that passed the House on the 12th of Feb? I can't seem to find anything more about it.

Re: What's the situation where you live?

Actually, that's just a rumor. The lead purchased in America for reloading has been being purchased from "secondary" lead producers (recycled lead from things like automobile batteries) and other countries like Japan for about the past 10 years because of the Clean Air Act restrictions on ...

Re: What's the situation where you live?

Central Oklahoma is doing a whole lot better in the area of powder and primers. I buy all my brass and lead out of state. This time a year ago it was like pulling hens teeth to find any of that stuff. But I've no real complaint right now. Sure would like to find some CFE Pistol around here though. H...

Re: G26 or me?

If you could put your G26 in a Ransom Rest I think you'd change your thinking. I shoot a G27. When I shot once every 5 or 6 years, :shock: I did well to hit the side of a barn. (not literally, but close to it!) When I started shooting 100-200 rounds a week my groups went down to 3 and 4 inches at th...

Re: Who Would Defend Their Property From Looters?

I can't really disagree..................I just chose to do it differently that time, right or wrong. Neither of us died, which was my concern at the time.

And I might add, "things" can be replaced............a life can't.

I agree with Nathan. I carry concealed as a social courtesy. I do my very best to stay concealed.

Re: Powder Choice for 9mm?

The only thing I don't like about Unique is how dirty it is. Universal can be substituted for Unique in all but the heaviest loads. You might give it a try. The insides of my trigger and hammer chambers stay cleaner much longer with it.

I'd buy the Galco Concealable Holster if they made it in a walnut color like my Wrights Predator. Personally, I don't care for either the black or cordovan colors.

Well, I personally have not a single negative word to say about Brandon's work. But I've yet to hear from anyone, on any forum, who is carrying a full-sized semi-auto in one of his Predator holsters.

As much as designers and architects like sliding glass doors they are the weak link in the chain.

Re: Browning HP as a carry gun

I wear my pants too tight to use an IWB Pickwick. I know a lot of folks who carry IWB, but I'm not going to be one of them. I'm sure the Avenger style does work well samuelrp............but I'd be willing to bet your Springfield would be held a lot closer (more concealed) in a pancake style............

I let Glen Beck convince me to purchase a Liberty Lincoln when I was looking for a good safe. Glad I did, too.

Re: Browning HP as a carry gun

The Avenger style holster doesn't hold a pistol as tight to the body as a pancake, does it? Though I'm not crazy about them, I could have used an Avenger style with my G27 because of it's size..............but the BHP is a full-sized pistol and would stick out too far to conceal easily. Or am I inco...

Indeed, nemisis, the .45-70 can be loaded in such a manner it will practically take your shoulder off.................but conversely, it can be loaded almost light enough to mimic the recoil of a .22 magnum!

Hodgdon CFE pistol is awesome. My guns stay very clean, and I can use it for 9, 45, and all the way up to maximum power 10mm loads. It is a fairly new powder, and more likely to be available too, since old times that have been reloading for a while are going to stick with Winchester 231 or whatever...

Re: Xs Big Dot sights

I have them installed on both my Glock 27 and Browning Hi-Power. Certainly not a target sight, but that's not what my carry guns are for! They definitely work for "minute of bad guy". Very fast target acquisition both day and night.
