    Marlin 30-30as

    The AS was a way for Marlin to distinguish that the gun was part of the Glenfield line of guns that were made with a walnut finished birch stock. The same applies to the AW, which means all weather, or synthetic stock, now it is my understanding that this was prior to 2000.
  2. My only experience with a gun made in Turkey was a Stoeger Cougar .40 cal. I bought it new in 2012. It is the same as a Beretta Cougar. I needed to replace the guide rod and recoil spring after a while. There was no where you could get a replacement, Beretta sent me to Stoeger, Stoeger sent me to Numerich parts. (not sure about the spelling) as their official parts supplier. No parts in stock, after numerous inquiries, they said they were at the mercy of the supplier in Turkey and had no control about when parts were sent. It took 6 months for parts for my .40 cal. to come in. They had them for a 9mm cougar, none for a .40 cal Cougar. It just makes me a little cautious about Turkish made weapons.
  3. Welcome, glad you're here.
  4. These adapters work well in the Shockwave with the mini rounds.
  5. For the last 5 months I have been carrying a Sig P365, it replaces a Kimber Micro 9 I carried for 2 years. I like the Sig's 12 round mags.
  6. After seeing so many bears on the trails in the last few years in the east Tenn. and western North Carolina mountains I carry bear spray. Never have needed it, but I have it. While hiking in Rocky Mountain National park a couple of years ago, I carried a Ruger LCR .357. It may or may not have helped me if I was attacked, but it made me feel a little better about having it on my belt. Carry whatever makes you feel a little more secure.
  7. I sometimes carry a Sig P238 Legion, especially in warmer weather when I wear lighter clothes. I have complete confidence in it and my ability to hit exactly what I aim at with it. Shot placement is everything with it, but it is with a 9mm also. Modern .380 defense ammo has come a long ways in the last few years. I use Hornady Critical Defense, and it is an effective round at close range. Having said all that, it is not my caliber of first choice, but I do occasionally carry it, and it can be effective if you use it and practice with it.
  8. I agree, I have a LCP and it is not a pleasure. I was considering using it in my Sig P238 Legion. It is much more pleasant than the LCP.

    Kimber Micro 9

    I shoot my Micro 9 at 12 yards, that's where the targets start at where I go. For a 3 inch barrel, it is a very accurate pistol

    Kimber Micro 9

    I've had one for two years, I usually carry it. It has been perfect for about 800 rounds.
  11. I was wondering if anyone has used .380+p ammo. I know most modern firearms say + p is ok for occasional use if it meets saami specs. Since there is no .380 +P specs, there is none saami approved. However I know of two companies making .380 + P ammo, Buffalo Bore and Underwood Ammo.Just curious if anyone has tried it in their .380 pistols.
  12. Welcome, from middle Tenn.

    Snubbie

    I have a LCR .357 I purchased several years ago, and I have been pleased with it. I shoot mostly . 38 special at the range, but if I carry it, I use Hornady Critical Defense .357. It's not too bad. I did however change the front sight.
  14. I use one occasionally when in a hurry if I haven't put many rounds through a rifle. It is not as good as a regular cleaning. When the bore snake gets dirty, you just wash it out with detergent and water.

    1911. Carry questions

    I occasionally carry a 1911 Colt Defender. At just 25 ozs, it's not an especially heavy 1911. I also carry it in a Kydex holster and have been very satisfied with it.
