How Do You Rate FMJ Ammo?

I'm curious to see how y'all rate the following brands of inexpensive FMJ handgun/rifle ammo -

PMC Bronze
Federal / American Eagle
Remington Express
Fiocchi
Winchester White Box USA

In what order would you choose from these?

Re: Colorado constitutional carry? Probably not.

That would be pretty damn cool. The proliferation of Constitutional Carry is one of the few signs that people are starting to understand what the right to keep and bear arms is about. Strangely, open carry is not allowed within the city limits of Denver even though State law allows it and prohibits ...

Re: ATF Declared M855 illegal

So basically if you want to get a type of rifle ammo banned, all you have to do is invent a handgun that can use it. It doesn't matter if the handgun is not popular or so large that it barely qualifies as a pistol. You may remember they did the same thing with Chinese 7.62x39mm steel core rounds, c...

Re: ATF Declared M855 illegal

This is revenge for people having fun with those arm-brace-stocks and slide-fire mechanisms. Last year they banned 7N6, the cheapest 5.45x39 ammo, that was majorly armor piercing and made AK-74s affordable to shoot and to stockpile for. Then Barackhenaten Obummer signed some executive order banning ...

If memory serves, the picture you have referenced is from the movie poster for the third film in the series. The easiest way to tell that the pistol is not a Browning is the round piece behind the slide serations. This indicates a Walther-style safety-decocker on the left rear of the slide as found ...

Don't assume one of those BS "knife fighting stances" because they make you a target. Go from a fairly neutral, non-threatening position to an explosive attack.

Since I am not trained in knife fighting, I would be pretty foolish to believe that I could defend myself with one. Hold knife close to the side of the body where it can't be grabbed. Grab guy with off hand at close range to get around his defenses. Plunge knife repeatedly into his vitals, ripping ...

Re: Sig malfunction

PT 92s are solid guns. Other Taurus firearms... not so much. Personally I prefer the PT 92 over Sigs due to ergonomics, but that's subjective. I find that Sigs are top-heavy and while they feel good in the hand they just don't lend themselves nicely to unsighted snap shooting. The Beretta 92-style g...

Re: Sig malfunction

The Sig is an overrated gun. The same guy, Moishe Cohan, that wrecked Kimber took over Sig and cheapened it. Cohen walked away from Kimber a lot richer with stock options, but the company went from known as 'Primo' to a Taurus Clone. Would take a PT 92 over a P226 any day of the week. Not to mentio...
