Re: Defensive Knives

I would probably also try and get a tree or a car between me and him. Really when it comes to any fight you just want to cheat. If they have a fist then you use a club, if they have a knife then you use a gun. Shit whatever works, no do overs. Totally agree with that, too. There's got to be room fo...

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 ...

Congrats on your purchase, that thing seems like one heck of a gun. I've got to say it looks darn impressive with that scope on it.

Re: Hi-Power score

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.

Re: Defensive Knives

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...

Re: Sig malfunction

I think this mystery is solved!

I've gotten so many deformed and otherwise defective rounds (mostly deformed headstamps, even had one that had no case rim) from them that I just gave up buying that stuff years ago. Were I in your shoes, I wouldn't be the least worried about the gun itself.

Re: Quick access safes

Hi Smurf. Personally I would suggest shooting from the hip at 3 to 5 yards and seeing what gets you the best accuracy, if your main consideration is as a concealed carry gun. Long shots may be necessary and I think the accuracy you stated at 10 yards is more than adequate but most self defense shoot...

Re: AK47 vs SKS vs Mini 30 questions

The Mini-14/Mini-30 are some of the handiest rifles I find. They fall into that category of "just right" in my opinion. However I'd take a good AK as my first choice out of these. Hard to beat for reliability, but that's just my take on it.
