  1. There are some custom Garand carbines in .308 with 18-inch barrels, but they are pricey. Tanker Garands were a concept gun that was explored in late 1944, I think it was, but the guns couldn't be made to work reliably and they were never put into production. Companies that are making them now are calling them Tanker Garands but in reality there was no such firearm used in WW2.
  2. I learned to drive in a gold 1963 Jeep Wagoneer with three-speed on the column. Some years later graduated to a black 1964 Plymouth Valiant with the slant-six engine and push-button automatic trans on the dash. Fun cars. Neither was fast but I'd love to have either one of them again. The Wagoneer had 4wd with manual locking hubs and would drive anywhere. Had a weak heater, though. The Valiant was a reliable as a stone.

    K-frame snubs are great, A 2-inch Model 10 or 64 would be excellent. Or a 2-inch Model 15 if you can find one. They're not common. And if you can find a Model 12 (K-frame Airweight), they shave a good bit of weight. Cheers, Whisper
  4. I've said this before, but the Shield .45 is one of the underappreciated gems of the handgun world. It handles great, shoots more accurately than is explainable, and carries almost invisibly. I think most people dismiss it because they think a .45 in a gun that size will be more difficult to control than it actually is. As you are discovering, Snaveba, that's not a valid concern for most shooters. Lack of mag capacity is the only reason the Shield .45 isn't my EDC. I do carry it when I need something more concealable than a full-size handgun. The fact that you pull low and left with both Shields but not the 1911 makes me think your trigger technique may need some attention. The pivoting trigger on the Shields works a little differently than the sliding trigger on the 1911. Check that you contact the trigger closer to the tip of your finger than to the joint. It might help. Cheers, Whisper
  5. Many -- probably almost all -- of our nation's foreign policy problems would be fixed if we stuck to the maxim of "No better friend, no worse enemy." Unfortunately, many of our friends aren't sure they can depend on us to do what we say, and many of our enemies don't believe our threats and warnings, and for the same reason -- we don't always follow through. Trump does seem to have tried to address this in some ways, but he's limited by the fact that he's such a narcissistic, petulant blowhard. At least he's better than his 2016 alternative.
  6. They are magnificent guns. Probably the best of the small .45s, in my view. I will never sell mine.
  7. Yep. As a friend observed yesterday, there's probably a lot of Iranian military leaders who are wondering now if that upcoming trip to Iraq is really essential.... Back when I was over there (2006-2008), the big menace was Muqtada al-Sadr, leader at that time of the Mahdi Militia (now reformed under another name that I forget). He was also an excellent candidate for being droned, though we never did it, for reasons similar to why Suleimani was never hit. But I bet today he's traveling more on the down-low than he did last week.
  8. Last two handguns I bought were a P320RX and a P320 Compact. I'm in the process of buying a S&W Model 15 right now.
  9. Agreed. Never had a problem with any Mec-Gar mags. I've seen many Pro-mags that were junk.
  10. You heard wrong. They openly discriminate against gun discussion and gun-related topics, to the point of deleting posts and shutting down groups without warning. I am confident this trend will accelerate.
  11. Man, if I'd known anyone would ever want it, I would have saved mine. I've handloaded .45 ACP for more than 40 years, and when the small-primer .45 cases came out, I had to be careful to keep any from getting into my brass pipeline. I've thrown away every .45 small-primer case that ever fell into my hands.
  12. I can't find anything on the state website about not being able to use centerfires during deer season. Even if you couldn't use centerfires, many coyotes are sent to hell by the .22 magnum. I don't know of anyone who has ever killed one with a shotgun -- it's hard to get that close -- but I guess it could happen. Cheers, Whisper
