Re: Good shooting, lousy tactics

No FTF's or FTE's. Yep, if it wasn't for those damn heavy double action triggers, I'd be happy to carry a revolver myself. Really after 120 years, you'd think someone would be able to make a DA revolver with a trigger that isn't horrible. Cocking the hammer on draw becomes second nature. My S&W...

I just tried it and it's possible. I've loaded 9mm into .40's before. They don't go very far. But never backwards. You have to wiggle it to get the rim past the mag lip.

My off hand is simply terrible and so is my point shooting. I always try to position myself to blade with my left shoulder forward to take any hits on my off-side and preserve my strong side accuracy. But that's just me.

Red Dots

I picked up a 1X Red Dot sight from a friend who didn't need it. I put it on one of my AR's to try it out. It seems very low and not very comfortable to sight. In fact, so low it's below the front blade. I guess I need a riser? Should I try to space it so it taps the top of the front blade or get ab...

Yeah, noobs see 361 or 134 posts and don't realize there's a decade of discussion behind it. Dammit. I miss the archives. Yup, we had a lot of great threads over the years.

Sorry, not many gecko45 types around here. I'm not some tough guy wannabe, I'm a professional armored courrier. So I don't appreciate the snark.

Re: OC

I rarely open carry, but I'm not opposed to it either. It may create social awkwardness, but that's not my problem and that's not my reason for concealed carry. I carry concealed to maintain an advantage. My Glock is the ace up my sleeve that you won't know about until I feel threatened. I do suppo...

Re: Cancer carry

I agree with Nate. The .38 rounds in a .357 frame feels like squibs, but still retain the required ballistics. Feel free to blabber away about your situation and don't be afraid to ask for assistance if you need it. This group never ceases to amaze me.

If you ever get the chance, buy "Kung Faux". There's only 8 episodes on DVD. Old Japanese martial arts movies condensed to 30 minutes. The fight scenes are "Batman-ized" with dialogue balloons (pow, blam, etc.), a newsman narrator, and the voice overs are all NY hip-hop artists s...

Re: Help me wiff my maff.

You fire it so fast that it continues in a straight line while the Earth curves away and everything is a miss high. You would almost need to slow it down a little to let the projectile match the drop along the sphere. Would gravity have much of an impact on curvature? And couldn't you conceivably d...
