    Small rant

    Man, I really don't appreciate you talking about my mom like that.
  3. Yeah, my Remy can take up to 3 1/2 " shells. I have never used hollow point slugs for home defense due to my fear of over penetration. If you shoot an intruder with a slug it could go through said target and still have enough energy to penetrate several walls in your house. On the flip side, there are loads I would stay away from for home defense due to under penetration, like birdshot, which make shallow wounds and will not penetrate far enough to reach vital organs. IMO you should stick with home defense buckshot loads.
  4. I posted my set-up in the first page of the thread. I use Remington HD Ultimate Home Defense loads in my Remington 887 (bedroom shotgun) Wal-Mart is not the best place for defense ammo, they are certainly good for the last minute "I forgot to get ammo" stop on the way to a meet and shoot, but I prefer gun shops for varieties of defense ammo.
  5. I apologize, I misunderstood the intentions of your comment and after rereading my comment today I believe I came off with attitude that was not needed.
  6. Why are you trying to split hairs? Taking possession of the suppressor after purchasing it is implied in the conversation, hence putting it on a home defense weapon which was how the subject was brought up in the first place. I don't even see why you posted your comment....what is your point?
  7. Can anyone sell me a silencer for 44M over hear..... Seriously man, most of us know what is required (tax stamp) to own a suppressor, you seem to be misreading some posts in this thread and you are getting upset for no reason considering you made the first incorrect statement. "I maybe wrong, but I don't think there is any federal paperwork needed for the purchase of the silencer..." A tax stamp is federal paperwork, it's a Federal Tax Stamp.
  8. I worry about over penetration a lot. I have two little girls and all I can imagine when pondering a home invasion is a round ending up through their bedroom wall and .....well, you get the drift. That is why I switched from an AR to a shotgun in the bedroom corner. I keep my shotgun loaded with Hornady Critical Defense 00 Buckshot and my nightstand pistol is loaded with Glaser Blue Safety Slug. I shot Erik's LCR at the last TGO shoot, it is a fun revolver. I have run +p through my S&W 638 Airweight when plinking and the LCR definitely has a bit more recoil, but nothing the average man couldn't handle effectively. Having to holding the revolver so tight to remain in control bothers me more than the actual recoil itself. I agree that I would not run more than a few cylinders through it in any given session though, your hand will be sore. As a matter of fact I switched the grips on my S&W to Hogue grips for that very reason, they are thicker and more "rubbery" than the factory grips and allow me to maintain control over the weapon without having to hold it as tight.
  9. My Fiancee has a Bersa Thunder as her nightstand pistol as well, she loves it. It was the first pistol I bought her and her first ever, she learned to shoot with it. We have never had a single issue with it. She has a S&W Bodyguard 380 as her EDC now that she has a permit, but her trusty Bersa stays on the nightstand. By the way, what arsenal is complete without a grenade launcher
  10. I don't really see how what type of home defense weapon you have makes any difference if you had to defend yourself in court for a justified shooting. Having to prove the shooting was justified and that you were in fear for your/family's life is what you would be concerned with. The weapon you used (as long as it was legal to own) would not be the issue IMO.
  11. I keep my nightstand 1911 equipped with a weapon light and CTC grip laser next to my bed. I keep my home defense Remington 887 Nitro Mag shotgun in the corner of my room nearest to my bed. My primary EDC Remington R1 1911 and my back-up S&W 638 stay in my dresser while I sleep. The rest of my collection stay in my safe. All my weapons stay in condition 1.
  12. I'm not sure yet, but I am looking forward to finding out.
  13. I recently acquired a Remington 887 Nitro Mag Tactical. Let me start off by saying I love the look of this shotgun. The action is smooth, there are no issues with the finish or anything else I can see. I haven't shot it yet as I just got it today, but I am curious if anyone has or has had one of these and what your opinions of them are. I have read reviews and what-not from the web and I am only interested in opinions of people whom have/have had one and can give me their personal experiences. Thanks guys.
  14. You will be firing 48 rounds; 12 rounds at three yards, 12 rounds at seven yards, 12 rounds at 15 yards and the last 12 rounds will be rapid fire back at three yards. That is how Rick does the class. As far as the silhouette is concerned, you cannot miss the target (whole target) more than six times during the qualification. It is pretty easy, don't sweat it.
  15. And what am I continuing to do?
