Carry Weapon #1

Carry Weapon #2

  1. What's the best 9mm pistol for concealed carry and Self Defense? I just want to know which 9MM pistol is best for self defense . I run fish farm in a remote area I need to buy good quality gun.
  2. Been looking for one of these for two+ years. Finally found a Sig P220 Legion in .45 ACP and brought it home.
  3. Another mania is taking hold of me in my old age... 9MM AR pistol or carbine... Build, by, or forget and keep shootin your pistolas.. Thoughts, experiences, recommendations, comments... " J Thaddius " leroy...
  4. Here is what I am slowly working on. Aero lower rise arement trigger 10.5 in Bear creek barrel low profile gas block with a pistol length gas system and chambered in 300 BLK. What length hand guard would you use seen from 7-10 inches. Also looking at possibly free floating it just because.
  5. I’m considering one. But, they seem to be scarce in the Nashville area. Are you happy with yours?
  6. Got tired of staring at the thing...they are surprisingly easy to shoot without a brace and woo-wee what a fireball...but the triggers suck...tons of phillips screws look dumb, and lets just face it having a brace makes aiming easier...however one huge advantage to these is weight...3.4lbs stock....I still need to weigh it but even with the added kit I think im still at 5lbs or less....I got some other plans for later but im happy with its direction.
  7. Seems everyone is going to semi-auto. Anyone still old school wheelgun
  8. I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal. Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.
  9. FOR years I have been very dismissive of pistol caliber carbine’s. I was of the opinion that if I was going to have something shoulder fired it needed to be of a rifle caliber. The only purpose for a pistol caliber carbine was for competition purposes. I’ve begun to reevaluate my opinion. They can be out right fun and the pistol versions offer a great deal of portability for a shoulder fired gun. I recently purchased a CZ scorpion and I am really enjoying it.
  10. Fun Video Jerry Miculek is my favorite shooter of all time.

    Kimber K6

    I just picked up a Kimber K6 revolver I had ordered online. I haven’t had a chance to get to the range yet. I had been considering one for a little while and decided to go ahead. I like the looks, the trigger, the night sights and the 6 rounds. The range trip will tell me if I made the right decision or not. I was wanting to get any feedback I could from any members who have any personal experience with a K6. Thanks.
  12. Not sure if this has been discussed or not in this forum, I'm relatively new here. But I'll throw this out there.... I have a S&W Walther ppks. All stainless. Purchased used, but was told only one magazine (7rds) had been ran through it and then put away. I tend to believe the guy I purchased from. (Gun was spotless and the second mag had never been used) Seems after every few rounds being fired through the pistol it fails to go back into battery. At first I thought this was a FTF, but all it takes is me to push the slide forward (with not much force) and its rocking again. This has happened with all different types of ammo. I did just order some new recoil springs from Wolff, hopefully that will correct. But I'm curious if anyone else has had these issues and it there is a proper fix for it. Thanks!
  13. I'm new to this site. Looking to sell a handgun, but can't find a link that allows me to list it. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  14. Dear Brother n Sister gunners... Which of the double stack 1911's do ya'll like n why... Any caliber, any flavor... Thanks a bunch. leroy.
  15. Has anyone actually seen or put hands on one as of yet? I would definitely like to see/handle one in person. This may become a "I want one" type things! Can use some after market Glocks parts/OEM parts but is different enough to be interesting. I like the Life Time warranty.
  16. I have a question for a short discussion. What's so great about the P99? Is it really better than a PPQ? Or just hype? Not sure if I'm looking to be talked into or out of buying a P99 from Classic Firearms. I'm really happy with my PPQ M2, but always hear that the P99 was and is the standard for the Walther lineup. Never shot, nor even held a P99. What say you?

    9 mm revolver

    Thinking about getting a 9mm revolver. Needs to be ss, short barrel. what is a good buy? Taurus model 905 ss 2", or the Ruger sp101 ss 2.25, Charter arms Pitbull ss or there other short barrel 9mm revolver out there? Opinions, likes and dislikes. What say you?
  18. I finaly got around to putting sights on this fake FN Hi Power made by FEG. It has all the right FN roll stamps and proofs but the SN is not a Belgian one. I think the Israelis parkerized this one before they got imported. I put a Real FN barrel in it since the FEG had way too much head space. The sights were original from the 1927 design. Now I can see them right nice. The dots are milled in pockets so the florescent paint will stay put for the most part. The front sight is a S&W one that was way too low so I built it up with mig weld, then reformed the sight to the proper hight. The face is cut in a bit to wipe out the lower S&W white dot that was there. Also added an extended safety. If there is one fault in these guns, its the puny safety to seer contact point. Its tiny and like a number of these that I have modified by putting a dab of weld on that contact point to eliminate the poor contact there that on most guns has trigger creep on safe. I trim the weld down little by little until that safety/trigger creep is zero. Finaly my confederate FN is a pleasure to shoot. A couple months ago, I picked up an Arcus 98DAC off GB for a tad over 3 bills. I was curious about this new version of the P35 that is the Police/Military pistol of 15 countries. It uses the same Hi power magazines and a couple other things. I could even fit a Hi Power barrel to it with a little machine work. It shoots well but is just as heavy as the original pistol at 2lbs 2oz. They left ALOT of steel in the shorter slide. I was thinking about cutting all that extra off some day just to see how much lighter I could get it since it does group pretty good and that weird web hook in the grip actually feels pretty good in my hand.
  19. Looks like Ruger is going budget to compete with the Heritage Rough Rider with a new revolver called the Ruger Wrangler. Aluminum cerakoted in three color combos to start. MSRP is $250. Looks like I'll be selling a rough rider and upgrading to a Ruger for my niece and nephew. https://ruger.com/products/wrangler/models.html
  20. I’m looking for information on my Model 10. With something that’s been made since 1957 (and seems have roots back to 1899) I’m aware it has been through a few revisions, but I’m not able to identify it. The serial starts with 6D.
  21. Hi friends, went to my favorite local gun dealer last Friday and picked up a nice Colt Mustang Pocketlite while paying for a CZ TS. Dealer has had this old 1918 Colt in his case for a long while now. Missing a lot of finish, rebarreled during WWII. Shipped to Bush Terminal in Brooklyn in July 1918 whereupon it was sent to see action in France. Very excited to own a piece of history like this! Hard to believe something 102 years old survives in a functioning condition. The things it must have seen in the last 102 years!
  22. Hello everyone, I'm looking for a red dot sight for my 12ga semi-auto shotgun which has picatinny rail on the receiver. Hoping to have better scores on duck hunting in twilight at close and medium ranges. I was looking for a couple of red dot sights on the internet and get confused: One of them is this one: CVLIFE 1X22X33 Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 20mm Rail, only 19 dollars. Second one is this: Ohuhu Red Green Dot Gun Sight Scope Reflex Sight with 4 Reticles. It has also charming price, only 19 dollars. By the way, I'm from Turkey/Istanbul. Some of veteran hunters recommend Burris Fastfire series and Docter brand red dot sights for 12ga shotguns, around here. Burris 300234 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 3 MOA Sight (Black). 195 dollars. Burris 300236 Fastfire III with Picatinny Mount 8 MOA Sight (Black). 190 dollars. Which one is proper for my desired purpose? I need your valuable comments and recommendations. Thanks in advance.
  23. So long story short went into a gun store to buy a handgun about a month ago to my surprise was denied as held guns in many other states, just not in TN and all were instant approvals. The FFL put in an appeals form right away to start the process. Anyways here we are about 30 days later and whenever I can TBI/TICS they say they are still working on it and it hasn't been declined, but waiting on some information from a state I once lived in. A bit of history about me. No felonies, no mental health issues, etc.. Illegal u-hand turn at one point about 10-12 years ago in Vegas that i let lapse and had a bench warrant and paid it off and one other scenario about 20 years ago in AZ which was a DUI, also this was taken care of and a not a felony and took care of it, so certainly nothing that should stop me from owning a gun.. I guess the part that bugs me is we are on business day 25 and have called them a few times and they say things are taking longer and it isnt declined, etc and so and so that who is working on it will be back whatever day it might be. Anyways, my understand of the law an appeal they have 15 business days to deny or approve or they must issue "Conditional Proceed". See below statement "TICS has 15 calendar days after receipt of the appeal form to research the denial and seek missing information or clarification from the arresting agency, clerks of court, judges and prosecuting attorneys. If the information being sought by TICS is not forthcoming or obtainable at the end of the 15 days, the transaction must be placed into “CONDITIONAL PROCEED” status" Source: https://www.tn.gov/content/dam/tn/tbi/documents/FFL_TN_Guide_2016.pdf My question is how do I stop them from dragging their feet as they appear to have violated the law, please correct me if I am wrong? Is this common or any suggestions how to either have them just deny it (which they have no real right to do as I have a clean record) or force them to issue a conditional proceed without the excuse of we are very backed up due to what is going on and appeals / bg checks are way up excuse that still doesn't excuse them in my opinion from the law. Just very frustrated and looking for suggestions. I suppose I could hire an attorney, but really dont feel like spending money on that. Thanks all
  24. Im looking at purchasing a holosun 507C-V2 for a Sig 320 X Carry Pro, but I will need an adapter plate. I could go with the Delta Pro Point or Sig Romeo 1 pro for a direct fit, but i like the holosun better. Im having trouble finding an adapter plate, anyone know what adapter plate will work for the holosun? I looked at Springer, but couldnt find one for the x carry pro that works with the holosun..
  25. Just traded for one of these and know nothing about it. Always wanted a 9mm revolver and I like Rugers. Can anyone tell me about them? Value, best ammo for accuracy?
