Re: Favorite backup guns

Sometimes I carry a Makarov as backup, if it's hot. Sometimes I carry a 1911 as backup, if it's not.

Anyone else do the 2 full size service pistols thing?

Re: M1 Carbine love?

The M1 carbine is one awesome gun. Lightweight and no perceptible recoil, very accurate at short ranges. It's been a few years since I've shot one but in my experience they are some of the most pleasant centerfires rifles to shoot. The .30 caliber bore and relatively low powder charge make it easier...

Re: New Beretta

Beretta should have just kept refining the original 92. Even if they're not the most tacticoolest thing anymore and their reputation took a hit from the Desert Storm aftermarket mags debacle, the Beretta 92 still has a loyal following. They should have put more effort into solving the locking block ...

Re: Common sense prevails in NJ flintlock owner case

I don't want a prosecutor "taking chances" on a case that isn't solid. That is the basis of my entire objection. Far too many prosecutions. Even if you win, you lose because you just spent tens of thousands of dollars defending yourself and possibly lost a lot more in the process. We (the...

Re: PFA and firearm rights.

+1 on LWP's suggestion about removing weapons from your home, maybe leave one that you wouldn't miss as much if it was confiscated.

Truly sorry to hear about your predicament.

A Desert Eagle with a chrome finish. About as over-the-top as you can get, but would still be "fun" on the range.

Re: Kansas moving towards no permit

That's great news. Vermont, Alaska, Arizona and Wyoming already have Constitutional Carry and it has worked well in those states. More importantly, it's good to see more people recognizing that carrying a weapon, open or concealed, is an inherent right, and not a privilege that is granted by "o...

Re: How Do You Rate FMJ Ammo?

No matter how you want to play with it, the .380 just makes no sense to me at all. I tend to agree with you, but there are reasons. 1) Less recoil. People with small or weak hands who don't want to carry a mid-to-large size handgun are better off with a lighter recoiling gun. Take a petite young wo...

Please explain how and why you may use FMJ ammo for personal safety. Do you not have a source for good HP ammo intended for personal defense? Hi LWP.

I've always found excellent quality in WWB. Has something changed? I don't know if it has recently, cause it was a few years ago that I stopped buying it. Maybe I just had bad luck with the last few boxes I had bought, but the number of defective cartridges was unsettling - as in, more than 1% of t...

MY own rating... Federal / American Eagle - Has always worked for me just about perfectly. No idea how much of this stuff I've shot over the years! No complaints and good price. If FMJ was all I could get my hands on, it would be my first choice for defense. PMC Bronze - Has always worked as well as...
