  1. I have 2 of the Fury holsters. They both have a very satisfying snap in and out and just the right amount of forward cant. I put "pancake wings" on both because they are just easier for me to take on and off that way.

  3. It was an amazing vehicle for sure. 240k miles when I sold it and it was smooth as silk on the highway and great over nasty roads. The Tundra is a better tow vehicle for our camper though. The wife has a Gx470 so we still have an SUV with the 4.7.

  5. It's both but probably the size more. In my experience full-size guns in a normal service caliber 9mm/40/45 are fun to shoot. The smaller the frame of the pistol, the more I prefer the 9mm to the 40 or .45.
  6. Full-size guns are pretty much universally more fun to shoot.
  7. Anyone seen pre-order prices? Buds looks like $389.00.
  8. Andrew Sharits with Realty Executives. We have used him 3 times and he did a great job every time.
  9. I don't suppose you want to share the name of the instructor?
  10. The title of this thread is a total letdown. After the hectic day I have had, I thought it was about Megan Fox. What a bummer...
  11. While it is purely entertainment, I think it is interesting to see the AR pass the test that the conventional "wisdom" said it should fail. While I certainly believe that the old thought that AKs are inaccurate is probably B.S. too, this just shows how useless most of the gun store "wisdom" may be.

    Ruger LCPii

    Nope. I had to get a new one. The trigger guard is shaped differently.

    Ruger LCPii

    Update- Got to shoot the LCP ii this morning and no malfunctions with 50 rounds of WWB; about 40 rounds of Remington FMJ and about 25 rounds of Freedom Munitions loaded Hornady XTP hollow points. Ejection was a little erratic but I am optimistic that it will smooth out over time. My impressions: 1) I did shoot it a little better than my old LCP likely due to the better trigger and the sights don't get lost on me as much. Slow fire accuracy is probably about the same, but the larger front sight (more space for the white nail polish I put on) and the shorter reset, let me speed up and still keep things on a paper plate size at about 5 yards. 2) .380 can still have recoil in a small enough pistol. Despite a few reviews I read, I did not notice a reduction in perceived recoil due to the increased grip diameter. I also put about 50 rounds through the Glock 22 I am carrying today, and even with the bark of the .40 it felt like a very soft shooter in comparison. I like this LCP a little better than the first gen models but it isn't a gun I would enjoy putting 200 rounds through at a time. 3) I always people talk about recoil for a certain caliber which never makes sense to me. The size of the pistol seems to have a much more of an impact on recoil than caliber. when I shoot multiple pistols, I am reminded that regardless of caliber, I should carry the largest one I can comfortably conceal. For me, the bigger ones are just a lot easier to shoot well.
