  1. I bought a air soft pistol for my daughter last year to teach her the firearms fundamentals. She liked it and did well with the safety concerns so I picked her up a SR22 this week off Arms List. The first shot was dead center from 15 ft. You could not wipe the smile off her face. After the first mag. she said " wow that was fun" we spent the next half hour working on stance and the trigger reset. She is hooked.

  3. The free market is speaking: The San Francisco 49ers quarterback currently has the fifth-best selling jersey on NFL.com, less than a year after it was put on clearance sale. Ironically, Kapernick doesn't see a direct profit from those sales, the profits are pooled along with every other jersey sale and split between the current maker (I believe it's Nike at the moment), the teams, and the players as a whole.

  4. You're thinking RefferMac! You are far ahead of the pack brother! Reholstering any handgun should always be a deliberate and purposeful act. There is no such critter as "speed reholstering". I've carried daily for at least 26 years and I am always cautious when reinserting the gun back into the holster..external safety of not. I predominately carry a G 19 appendix IWB. There is nothing wrong with "looking the gun" into the holster, with the "tilt" of the base of the holster out as you mentioned. It will become more intuitive over time..but one should never become complacent w

  8. Ok, turns out to be an add on called Interclue. It allows you to touch a link on a page and see what it is before you open it up. When this add on is active, I get the message above. When I deactivate it, TGO returns to normal. I used to use a similar add on called Cool Previews. It worked great, but since the developer stopped supporting it, Firefox quit accepting it as a valid add on. Just FYI in case it happens to someone else.

  11. So, Saturday I went to Smoky Mountain Knife Works to look at a few knives. A few months back I decided I wanted another 'heavy use' belt knife that could serve as an all around utility and 'survival knife' which I could actually carry in public (I generally carry large fixed blades on weekends - can't carry them at work.) Now, I have to say that spending more than $50 on a knife still feels like a foreign concept to me (with $30 or under feeling much more 'natural') and that it probably won't be something I will do very often. For that reason, I have been looking at knife usage reviews on Y

  18. Andy did a really good job of making this stage interesting stage because the mix of small and large targets was supposed to force you to slow down and speed up depending on the target difficulty instead of just blasting away. Me being me, I had to analyze the video and see if I really did slow down and speed up as I'm supposed to: I took an average of 0.92 seconds to take a shot at the large paper rifle targets. 0.85 seconds to take a shot at the small paper targets, and 0.93 seconds to take a shot at a clay. So I have the "slowing down" part down, but it looks like I'm missing the "speeding

  19. I believe birdshot doesn't go more than a few hundred yards. Even if it does, it's very harmless. I know hunters from church that said they've been rained on with birdshot from 200 yards and it's nothing (rained on, not shot straight at.)

  22. Rugerla I love my switchback. Hands down the best bow I've owned. I started practicing at the beginning of Aug. As I get older it takes longer to get in shape. I don't have tons of places to hunt but they always seem to produce a few coyote and a deer or two.

  23. Pretty sure Tyler also made trigger shoes that set screw into the existing trigger to make the trigger feel lighter. I have quite a few of them in a junk box.

  24. http://oakridgetoday.com/2016/09/04/police-evacuate-residents-from-marina-pavilion-after-gunshots-reported-but-say-no-injuries-damages-reported-or-found/ I found another news article about this. Turns out the "bullet hole" in the roof was not recent. On the FaceBook, someone was commenting (speculating?) that the shooters were dove hunting, which is perfectly legal there. If that is the case, then there would have only been bird shot falling, not bullets. I did a little Google map estimating, and it looks like it is about 1000 yds from where they were shooting from to the pavilion.

  26. If I need more grip I use an innertube from a bicycle. Depending how you cut it out they have some lines molded in that help it stay in your hands. And it doesn't permanently alter the pistol. Something else I have seen people do is wrap the gun's grip in plastic wrap. Then take a small amount of automotive body filler and put it on the front of the grip on top of the plastic on the front of the grip. Then grip the gun and slowly squish the body filler with your fingers until it feels comfortable to you. Let it harden then smooth it with sandpaper. And finally removed the plastic and use

  27. I have the Viper SD also. Great stand. You'll appreciate the difference the first time you have to carry it a distance. The lighter weight sure helps me.

  28. I had the pleasure of speaking with the reps from Southern Grind at the NRA convention earlier this year. I was very impressed with the quality of the product, but more so by the company and the rationale for it. I've always been a Zac Brown fan, but this was just icing on the cake for me.

  29. I have a T-grip on a Smith Model 19 snubbie. It makes a hard to hold pistol a dream to shoot. I'm looking at the possibility of ordering a couple for some j-frames.

  38. Oxy stays in your system for sometime as well and its prescribed and abused much as any other drug. The bottom line is that MJ needs to be treated as any other schedule II drug (Schedule I now) and decriminalized. The Feds just don't want to admit they are wrong so they keep it illegal. Personally, I would rather have to deal with potheads than drunks, carrying or not.

I do not use any illegal substance but have no problem lying to someone who has been lying to me my entire life. All men are not created equal

  41. He got what he wanted, attention. Wether it was truly to draw that attention toward what he claimed or if he is simply a once was star on a rapid decline looking to grab some spotlight who knows. Kinda strange how he went from a Super Bowl contender to someone who may not even make the team this year. Best comment I've seen on the matter was "he should have taken the opportunity to stand, even if he makes the team he'll never get off the bench." Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  43. I wanted to share my experience regarding Apex Tactical. As many may know, this company is a source for after-market quality parts for several firearms, especially the Smith & Wesson M&P lines. I have installed several Action Enhancement Kits and triggers. Have been completely satisfied with results and any minor company support on technical issues. I have a M&P 5" Pro that I use for IDPA, etc. I thought I would install the semi-drop in barrel which requires 'a little' customizing. Well I had nothing but trouble....primarily mis-fires, lite primer strikes with factory and rel

  44. Thanks for the replies... I don't know if anyone should be jealous. Once we decided to go down this path we went all in with my retirement plan. It looks like it is going to work out but I am 100% committed. Failure is literally not an option. I find that fear is a great motivator. My wife (who should have never said yes : - 0 ) deserves to have a comfortable retirement for putting up with me all these years. Folks in her family live about 20 years longer than they do in mine so I'm planning for the really long haul... I've learned a few things: 1) It doesn't matter how big of a trac
