Re: Milled Slide for DPP Optic

Nice. Does that pistol have an aftermarket barrel bushing? And what kind of grips are those?

H.R. 5087

Make sure you are all up on this one (H.R. 5087) since it bans virtually ALL SEMI-AUTOMATIC FIREARMS.

If you're not a member of the GOA, now is a good time to donate heavily. It will be catastrophic if we let this slide.

What are the benefits of it? Home brewing is like buying from a private individual. There's no government paper trail as through an FFL.

Racking the Slide

I've never found a reason to abandon the "old way" of racking the slide - that is, gripping the cocking serrations between the thumb and the side of the index finger and using a pushing motion of the frame against the slide. It has always been more natural and feels much stronger to me tha...

Re: Ridiculous case in Virginia

References to Zhao’s nationality, echoes of the 2007 mass shooting at Tech and more recent national immigration debates have swirled around rumors of weapons stockpiles and warnings that students should stay away from large lectures. Racist much? Tech was shot up in 2007 by a student of Korean (not...

Re: Hi-Power Discontinued

The $3500 price tag might have something to do with it. See, I think just the opposite. Many don't mind dropping thousands on a good gun. I didn't hesitate to drop $4,500 on my Titan because they took an old concept (1911) and gave it updated features (double stack 10mm) in a hand built quality gun...

Re: Hi-Power Discontinued

from a personal standpoint, this sucks . I can remember when I was around 12 years old or so, my biggest struggle was trying to decide if I would one day carry the Browning Hi-Power or the 1911. I was leaning toward the 1911, but only because my grandfather had one. Deep down, despite my own denial...

Hi-Power Discontinued

It seems that FN Herstal has completed its last run of Browning Hi-Powers / P35s and the line is now discontinued. The reasoning reportedly given is that the Hi-Power apparently is not selling as well as it used to. Personally I just can't see that rationale being correct (in North America at least)...

Re: Sleeve guns???

If you just want a concealed backup pistol but it doesn't have to be on your arm, Yankee has it right with ankle carry. I assume you are uniformed security so a shoulder holster or crossdraw couldn't be concealed and are therefore effectively non-options. The knife clipped into a wristband trick is ...

Re: Sleeve guns???

Here are the reasons you won't find too many people hiding a gun up their sleeve. It's hard to conceal something the size of a gun, even a very small one, up a sleeve with everything except a very heavy coat - it prints too much. Any holster on your arm will move around under the weight of a gun, or...
