  2. Well lemme see here.... I'm sitting there having dinner and suddenly a rowdy crowd of protesters appears and is backing me up against a wall and screaming in my face. Yeah, I'd think it would be reasonable to feel threatened enough to go into self defense mode.

It started out about 3/16" thick. It has a 6" blade and 11 1/2" OAL. It comes with combo leather/kydex sheath shown. The finger guard is brass that I shaped and antiqued. The handle is Padauk with bog oak and G10 acce

  4. So far, I've never been in a civilian firefight, but have been in plenty in Vietnam. There is no such thing as too much ammo. Just because there was only 4 or 5 rounds fired this time, doesn't mean that will always be the case. Funerals these days are much more expensive than ammo ( if you can find any ). Like many things gun related, it's a personal choice. If you're comfortable with a six shooter, have at it. If you need 15+ to feel safe, do that. FWIW, I carried 400 rds for the M16 + 18 rds for the M203 Grenade launcher. Sometimes, I was a bit concerned with that.

  5. I had wanted a Marlin 1894CST since they first came out and couldn't find one. So I found this 18" Marlin 1894CS in .357 and set out to build my ideal version of the CST. I added a Saddle Ring Safety Delete from Beartooth Mercantile, Skinner winged 1894 peep sight, Skinner Bear Buster white stripe front sight, Skinner dovetail filler, Wild West Guns aluminum magazine follower, and had the barrel threaded 1/2x28 by my gunsmith for my suppressor. Suppressor is not included. I have loved and shot this gun for the past year and a half or so firing approximately 400 rounds, mostly 158 grain .38

  7. I'm very forgiving of when people can't make a scheduled appointment. I'm not forgiving if they don't communicate it. Life happens and I understand that, but a text, DM, or email takes but a moment. Like putting your grocery carriage in the space for them instead of leaving it to hit another car, it's one of life's little decency tests that everyone should pass.

  9. Selling an excellent condition FNH SCAR 17s in 7.62 NATO/.308. This rifle has the black finish, has a round count of approx. 500 (all G.I. ball or M118LR) and is a Belgian-made rifle. This rifle has NEVER been fired with a suppressor on it. Included are 15 factory 20-round magazines (12 of which are still in the box), a PMM modified Magpul grip, several sections of Magpul rail covering and the Geissele Super Scar trigger. All of the original paperwork, the OEM grip, the factory trigger and the FN cardboard box are included. I have installed a Silencerco (I think) 3-prong flash

  11. I picked this up awhile ago just because I thought it was one of the best looking revolvers I had seen. I bought it out of an estate sale. It was custom ordered and the gentleman had the factory engrave his name on the backstop and give the gun a custom serial number using his initials. The gun has been shot but not much and not be me. It has beautiful deep blueing and vibrant case hardened colors. It is in .44 special, it has faux ivory grips and in my opinion the perfect length barrel on a SAA, 4 7/8th. It also comes with a nice presentation box. $1250

  13. In my personal experience, I have felt the need for a handgun twice. Luckily, on both occasions, the mere act of drawing and taking a defensive stance quickly deescalated the situation. Both times, had I been forced to fight, I seriously doubt I had the skill or ammunition to prevail. Surprisingly, at the time, I did feel I had the commitment and determination to give it one helluva try.

  16. I’m good. I have a safe full of loaded mags .223, .300BO, .308, .22, 9mm, .357 and ammo cans stacked deep elsewhere. I only have a reasonable amount of .45, because I no longer carry the caliber. It’s for my purdy 1911’s that rarely see the light of day. I plan to start burning off a lot of .22 now until things settle down.

  19. BE WARNED: SCAMMERS ARE ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST THE GUN COMMUNITY ON TGO AND OTHER INTERNET FORUMS IN THE BUY/SELL/TRADE AREAS. Folks, lately we have seen a significant uptick in scam attempts that go like this: You post an ad for an item for sale or wanted. A scammer contacts you about the item you are selling or looking for and offers to put you in contact with a friend or relative in Texas or some other state. Throughout the whole thing, your Spidey Sense is tingling and telling you it seems suspicious... because it is! We stro

  21. We are simply seeing things we simply have never seenin our lifetime. " Tombstone " is becoming the norm where it had been tamped down for over 120 years. If the adults don't take the local and state gubts back over, even in places like Knoxburg, everybody may be carryin ARs, AKs, n Shotguns along with their pistolas wherever they go... The adult political class of both flavors is gonna have ta quit coddling this trash n come down on em to restore the peace.

  23. Exactly! I’m under no illusion of being a gunfighter by any means, but I do value the opportunity to have a fighting chance. I believe a can do attitude, situational awareness, and the willingness to go through with what needs to be done will most often trump your count of rounds available. If I were really expecting trouble, I would first prefer to be elsewhere, and if that failed, I would want a rifle.

  26. Good morning all. I receive emails from PSA and yesterday they had 300 rounds of .38 132 gr FMJ for $239.99 that is $0.80 each. They also had .40 S&W 165 gr. PMC brand 300 rounds for $179.99 or $0.60 each. It doesn't make sense to me that .38 would be that expensive. I would have posted this, but when I saw the ad it was sold out. For you folks that don't reload, this is a fine reason to start. Any day of the week you can load 38's for $0.12 or less, I cast my own lead bullets and can do it for under $0.06. I really feel sorry for folks that pay $0.80 for a fmj .38.

  32. I’ve bought so many IWB holsters that I got tired of spending money. Bottom line is none of them work for me. I’m 6’ 2”, 180 lbs. I just stick with OWB, and can conceal it good enough, with a coat in the winter or a untucked shirt in the summer.

  41. Ammo simply equals opportunity. If you only have 5 rounds then you only have 5 opportunities to change the behavior of how ever many persons that need their behavior changed. Also pistols are simply harder to shoot accurately under stress than rifles or shotguns. Assuming that we might degrade 25% under extreme stress (some way more and some way less dependent upon recent relevant training and level they have internalized that training ) then we may not have 5 HITS to distribute among the bad guys. So it is pretty imperative that if we are going to roll with a limited capacity gun then

  43. The existence of a Co-morbidity does not mean the statistics are incorrect or they covid is not the cause of death. If you have high blood pressure or diabetes, or are obese, but are managing those issues, and then you contract Covid-19 and subsequently die from Covid-19, they will list the co-morbidity. You were fine and dandy, and trucking along, managing your health issue until you got covid. COVID-19 is the reason you died. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-factcheck-94-percent-covid-among-caus-idUSKBN25U2IO

  44. As alluded to previously. It isn't always about how many rounds your mag holds as it about how well you can shoot under stress. I haven't been in a gunfight, but shot a lot of USPSA, IDPA and ICORE and most folks don't realize if the crap hits the fan it won't be like at the range punching holes in paper. A BG or lots of BG's could me firing at you. I see guys that train tell us to run around for 10 minutes or so and get our heart rate up, then grab your gun and see how well you put hits at 15 yards. Just look at the stats of LEO's shooting they have a low hit factor most of the time. Trained
