  1. Don't overthink it. Shoot them and see if you like them. I've owned both and currently only carry the M&P's. But your pros and cons are overthought. The three questions should be 1) Do you shoot well with it? 2) Will you carry it? 3) Do you feel completely comfortable and confident in shooting it and carrying it?   If your answer is yes to all three questions for BOTH platforms (which was the case in mine), then go with the one you enjoy more (in my case, I enjoyed the M&P more due to ergonomics). One cannot truly make an objective argument for one over the other. They are both excellent platforms and I wouldn't hesitate to trust my life with either in a self defense situation, and barring the use of a 1911, I wouldn't hesitate using either in a competitive environment either.
  2. Diabetes is a chronic disease. No one single binge of sugar will cause a non-diabetic person to suddenly develop diabetes. In the case of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, it takes years to develop, usually later in life (not sure how old your fiance is), although we are seeing it more in children and teens. If your fiance is not pregnant (gestational diabetes) and is not taking medications such as immunosuppressants, antipsychotics, etc. then if your doctor gave an actual diagnosis of new onset diabetes, confirmed by a HbA1c test of > 6.5%, then her blood sugar had been elevated for quite some time before this.
  3. It is not always possible to carry the full-sized handgun. Of course they shoot more effectively in extended fights and in distance shooting. That is a given. Only time I can conceal a full-size is in the winter with a big coat on. I'm a small guy. Sometimes these article writers don't take into account that people come in all different shapes and sizes and also have different limitations given where they must travel to, work, etc. If it was practical to carry a 300 BLK SBR suppressed, I think many of us would do that....but it isn't practical.
  4. VLTOR VIS-3 Upper Noveske 16" SS Match Nightforce NXS 2.5-10x32 LMT/Young's Mfg BCG VLTOR TS3 lower Wilson Combat TTU trigger
  5. Some people hate the trigger, but Timney just released a new trigger at SHOT Show 2014. So that might remedy that issue.
  6. Why not store them on cinder blocks and cover them with tarp? Wouldn't that prevent chemicals from coming in contact?
  7. You could wait until the BCM KMR (keymod rail) comes out. It is supposed to be rediculously light and slim. http://www.bravocompanymfg.com/kmr/ that site shows the KMR13 but they will have a KMR10 as well. Designed by Eric of VLTOR and made with an aluminum-magnesium alloy. Should be around $250-270.   LW barrels are also an option. There are the BCM, DD, and Spikes LW barrels that are good options. Or you can flute or recontour the barrel at ADCO https://www.adcofirearms.com/shopservices/
  8. Every Mexican has a different recipe due to different family traditions. But a traditional salsa has tomatoes, onion, garlic, cilantro, lime juice, jalepeno or serrano chiles, salt, and pepper. You can sub out the chiles if you don't want the heat and add more or less garlic dependent on your tastes... those are the ingredients. Salsa's should not be sweet because even if the tomatoes themselves are sweet, you have lime juice for acidity and salt to offset any sweetness. If a salsa is too sweet in a restaurant, it means they added sugar, because tomatoes inherently are not that sweet. Sugar is not an ingredient in traditional salsas. Keep in mind that in many restaurants, they cater their dishes to Americans, so it is not what they would make at home to eat.   To make, throw all of the ingredients above into a blender because you want all of the cells to break up to really get the flavors to mix. The ratios are up to you. Another spin on salsa is to roast the tomatoes, onion, and garlic in an oven (or stove with flame) to get a char on them. This gets a deeper, earthier flavor that Mexicans will use to mix with food, rather than just eating it with chips like you see in a restaurant.
  9. I like saving money. Who doesn't? But as a former internet retailer, I do support internet taxes because it puts everyone, both brick & mortar stores, and internet retailers, on a more equal footing financially and this is fair. The internet, both with its lower operating expenses (nothing wrong with that) and allure of no taxation (there's potential wrong in that) has hurt and killed local traditional businesses. 
  10. Looking to trade my Ruger SR9C for either an M&P9C (preferred) or a G19. Only about 200 rounds through it.    Will entertain other trades or cash offers.
  11. You can either pay $50 and shoot... or wait a year, and not shoot, and hope that you can score a brick for $25.... I'd rather just pay some now to shoot and have fun. I'm all for principle. But PSA is not a gouger. You don't know what their cost on that ammo was. They always have reasonable prices. Heck, anyone that has bought regularly from PSA has probably saved TONS of money so spending a little more on some ammo has been compensated for well over.   Most of us do not have the time to goto Walmart. Buy some expensive ammo now, and shoot now while you wait for prices to go down... nobody says you have to hoard up on expensive ammo. It's not like a year from now, you will curse yourself for spending a couple hundred bucks. And if you do, perhaps you should either find a way to make more money, or quit shooting altogether, as this hobby/lifestyle/whatever, is not for the shallow pocketed.
