  1. A Walther PPK/S 22LR for $229.99. Cool! https://palmettostatearmory.com/walther-ppk-s-22-lr-pistol-black-5030300.html?trk_msg=VIPLAS84AQI4H3U54V3DUCP7IC&trk_contact=J0O6F96VK99PH79FM828GOBMF8&trk_sid=5GKTRAC3L610TNEQ89BVDS8K74&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=https%3a%2f%2fpalmettostatearmory.com%2fwalther-ppk-s-22-lr-pistol-black-5030300.html&utm_campaign=Daily+Deal&utm_content=5%3a00+Email
  2. Rumor has it the debut of a 9mm EZ is slated for the 12th. Any official scuttlebutt?

    PTR 9CT Set Up

    I’ve been playing around with the PTR 9CT and I think I found the set up I like. Want to see what you guys think. Eventually hoping to add a can. -PTR 9CT Pistol -SB Tactical Folding Brace -Trijicon MRO with Geissele Super Precision Mount -Inforce WML -BCM MLOK Handstop Anyone else rockin’ an MP5 Clone platform?
  4. Any good realistic ideas on what it could be ? I'd like to say it would be a very slim compact 45acp like the Shield 45 . But as Glock has done here lately it may be something stupid like a new 43X with a stippled magazine base plate.

    Glock 17 Mags

    I want to buy a couple of 17 round mags for my Glock 17, which is a Gen 2. Current production mags should work with that Generation, correct?
  6. I recently purchased a RIA Ultra 1911and have put 450 rounds through it to get it broke in. For the most part, the gun hasn't had any issues. There have been about 3 times where the gun seemed to go out of battery I think. The gun would fire and eject a round but once a new round was chambered, the gun would not fire. There was a round in the chamber and the hammer cocked back but it would not fire. The first 2 times I simply racked the slide to eject the round and put it back in the magazine and continued shooting. Today while shooting I had the same thing happen except that racking the slide would not extract the live round. I locked the slide back and used a cleaning rod to push the round out of the chamber and clear the gun. I wonder if I need to have a gunsmith do some work on it or hope that the issue resolves itself. Today I also had a round nosedive into the chamber and get stuck. I was using 200 grain Gold Dots. The first 400 rounds I have fed the gun have been 230 grain FMJs. I wanted to run some JHPs through it also to see how it handles them. I've read that I may need to get the feed ramp polished to help with that issue. Overall, the gun has been a joy to shoot and I haven't had many issues with the gun. I look forward to shooting it whenever I can. Being my first .45, the recoil isn't as bad as I thought. It's not any worse than my .40 Glock. The heavy frame helps absorb most of the kick. I just hope I can get the bugs worked out because I would like to carry the Rock as a EDC when desired. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to what I may need to do? Thanks.
  7. I have been getting into .22’s more because I think I will shoot them more, I also have most of what I need in centerfires. After a lot of research I decided on either the 7” Smith & Wesson Model 41 or the Ruger Mark IV Competition model. After advertising in several places, I didn’t find any luck in finding anything used. So I’m about to make a decision on new. This would be a range toy, target gun. It would never be carried in the woods, or anywhere else for that matter. I wouldn’t even need a holster for it. The S&W Model 41 is the Grand Daddy of the rimfires. It has an excellent reputation and although it costs a lot; I could probably get my money back if I decided to sell it. The old ones are bringing (or at least asking) more than new. But this gun is still being made and is available for $1030 plus a transfer new. The reviews I have read by those that have shot both say the Ruger Mark IV Competition is every bit as accurate as the Model 41. It is a highly respected firearm and since Ruger changed the disassembly/assembly issues; it is the one I’m leaning towards. I can buy t for $560 plus a transfer. I love me some Smith & Wesson’s and I have the cash for the 41, but I think by going with the Ruger I will have a high quality target .22 and can use the money left over for the single action cowboy gun I don’t have yet. What say you?
  8. I post this in SHAME and CONCERN about what I did in hopes maybe refresh everyone's safety. BTW, I have a Post similar under the topic on this Forum regarding a Recoil Rod question that I was reviewing when the discharge of my 9MM G2 happened. Just thought might catch more eyes as a separate Topic. It's a bit long presentation. Monday Evening, a member had brought up an issue with a gun (same model as my PT111 G2 9MM). He had noticed his Recoil Rod could be pushed out past the front of the frame when he had the gun broke down for cleaning. I thought that sounds normal to me as the Recoil Rod has to go out the front of the slide when firing the gun to allow the slide to go back. He had in fact said the gun functions OK. Anyway, wanted to verify my thoughts. So, I decided to break my gun down (remove the slide to verify all this). I was at my computer desk. Here is the breakdown procedure for INFO: remove the MAG, check Chamber to make sure no bullet in the chamber (always need to do RULE 1 even though I never keep a bullet in the chamber), then push the slide back about 1/8 inch and release the keeper buttons, let the slide back to normal position (the keeper buttons stay released), then pull the TRIGGER to release the striker (not all guns require that - many do). The Trigger Pull releases the striker and is the final step to pull the slide off the gun (break it down to expose parts for cleaning). THAT REQUIREMENT to pull the TRIGGER is the ONE BIG reason to MAKE SURE the CHAMBER is EMPTY (and in my opinion somewhat a safety issue). BTW, the PT111 has a chamber indicator on it. You can just look at that and know the chamber is empty - I did not do that either. I am not STUPID (dumb) about Rule 1 (gun unloaded) when handling. Do it all the time every time I clean or pick up a gun (except for this incident ). SO Being so SMART about that, what happened??? NOW THE BAD CARELESS PART. The final story is; after breaking the gun down, I verified what the guy saw that you can push the Recoil Rod with your thumb and see it go out the front of the slide. Having verified what I thought, I put the gun back together and put the MAG in and put the gun away (nothing in the Chamber, I never Carry with one in the Chamber). I decided to watch the Recoil Rod come out the front. So, I picked up the gun and manually pushed the slide back, of course it did protrude out the front. Then I released the slide, guess what a round loaded in the Chamber when I released the slide as I had the MAG in. That was the first part of the BAD. Then a bit later, I decided to break the gun down again: Took the MAG out, DID NOT CHECK THE CHAMBER. I guess figured I just had it apart, or just did not think ( VIOLATE RULE 1). Got to the step to Pull TRIGGER (release the striker). Gun went off (loud and scared the crap out of me). Only good thing was that it was pointed in a safe direction due to the way I was sitting and doing the operation (more by accident than by my thoughts). The bullet traveled at a down angle to my left (due to the way I was holding the gun getting ready to remove the slide). The bullet went thru front of a drawer (bottom edge) of another desk, and thru the top back of a lower drawer (top edge). Then thru the back of the desk, thru the wall into a bedroom. It then hit the treadmill in that bedroom (low about 4 inches off the floor and front about 6 inches from the edge) where the heavy part of the tread mill is located. That stopped the bullet. Just to say what could have been- had the gun been level, and a bit further pointed east, it would have went thru a TV, the wall into the adjacent bedroom and out the window of that bedroom. Then who knows what? Killed someone? I was lucky and Needless to say, I was UPSET and still I am still UPSET. My wife (gun hater) was REALLY UPSET, that has been smoothed over to an extent as EVERYONE makes mistakes. ONLY GOOD THING - HOPEFULLY I learned to practice (100 % of the time) something (Rule 1) that I all ready knew and have always practiced.
  9. Something that I discovered recently was that, surprisingly despite the smaller size of my hands, the Glock 19 platform that I had carried religiously for nearly 20 years really wasn't the best platform for me. Shocker! What I discovered was that the longer grip length of the Glock 17 not only put the grip's palm swell/hump in a location that fit my hand better, but I also benefited from using the the medium back strap as it gave me more surface area to get my support hand onto. More support hand on the grip itself and not overlapping my dominant hand fingers means more actual contact with the gun and therefore better recoil management, less muzzle rise, and faster split times. My world had basically been turned on its ear. While I still wasn't a fan of the additional length of the 17 for IWB carry, especially with a compensator hanging off the end of it, the Glock model 45 suddenly made a heck of a lot more sense to me than it ever had previously. Consequently, I've started to part ways with most of my Glock 19s and have picked up two G45s as their replacement. The added bonus of course is that the G45's slide is the same length as the G19's, so all of my holsters work just fine with them. This gun is my "pimped out" carry rig for when I'm feeling a little extra sassy and don't mind a little extra bulk on me. I sent the slide off to DP Custom Works and had Doug mill it for an RMR and mill the front top of the slide with extra cocking serrations to make press-checks a little easier. While he had the slide, he re-finished it in a tough black nitride, which looks fantastic and isn't as slick as the factory Gen 5 black nDLC. I added a ZEV Gen 5 curved trigger with their tuned ZEV Pro connector, ZEV suppressor height sights, a Crux Ordnance oversized mag release, a Silencerco threaded barrel, a Parker Mountain Machine comp, and hung one of my 1,000 lumen Surefire X300-UB lights off of it. The whole thing rides very easily in a Squared Away Customs "FOXTROT" outside the waistband holster or a Legacy Firearms Company light-bearing CRONUS inside the waistband holster. As for how it shoots, I've got the dot set for a 10-yard zero and stacking rounds in a cloverleaf within a 1-inch circle at that distance isn't a difficult task for me. ** Edited to Add: These photos were taken with an Agency trigger installed, before I swapped it out for the Zev curved trigger to keep things consistent across all of my Glocks **
  10. Just picked up one. Nice pistol. Comes with regular 3-dot sights (rear is height adjustable), two 17 round magazines. Mags are made in Italy and look like Mec-Gar with anti friction coating. Pistol has a external safety (ambi) and magazine disconnect. The loaded chamber indicator is on top of the slide and sticks up quite a bit with a round chambered. None of this really bothers me and the mag disconnect is easy to remove if so desired. Pistol has good accuracy and is easy to shoot well. Grip is thinner than a lot of similar pistols. Full take down requires punches/hammer so not as easy as some others. Field strip does not require a trigger pull but you must push the ejector down to remove the slide, and either pull it up or insert a mag to raise the ejector back into operational position when reassembled. Overall a decent pistol and after 600 rounds there has been no pistol related problems This pistol is as accurate or a little more so than my Glock 48, which I like a lot and carry. May put the Ruger SR9 into carry rotation.
  11. I know some of you could care less where your guns are made; but many of us do; this discussion is for those members. Buy American, Hire American, America First. More and more we see guns in the bottom feeder category that are American Made. Lets face it, until the last few years the only decent American Made gun that is low cost and wasn’t (arguably) junk was the Hi Point. We have come a long way. The thread about the Stoger and the Canik (both made in Turkey) being under $300 made me think that we have better options for less money; even American Made options. So if you like to buy cheap guns, and want to buy American; now is a good time. Even prices on some of the top quality, best sellers in the Industry have dropped. The SCCY CPX we routinely see selling below $200. It’s currently made in Florida with the company in the process of moving to Tennessee. And it gets good reviews Kel-Tec PF-9 right at $200 and the P-11 just over, and made here. Diamondback at just over $200. New models like the Remington R51 (brought back after a bad start) at just over $200 and the Mossberg MC1SC at around $300; we shall see. Ruger EC9 at around $250 and Security 9 and SR9 at $300. MOSSBERG MC1SC at $300; we shall see. All the Highpoints at around $175. They have a big following… bless their heart. And even Smith & Wesson Shields at $250 and Full Size models dropping below $300!! Proven performers.
  12. I’m thinking about a cowboy gun. I’m looking at the New Ruger Vaquero 5.5” .357 (5106) From the picture on their web site it looks like this is the crappy flat blue, like on everything nowadays and not a good high gloss blue. Is that a good assumption to make?
  13. I was really surprised about a week ago when I got the call. I thought they had sold out this years batch. But the lady told me that some people had changed their minds and they still have some. I picked it up last Friday and took it to the range yesterday. Its a 1942 Colt frame with an Ithaca slide. Finish is about 80% with some noticeable wear and scratches. The #1 is painted on the grips. However the bore is perfect. So while it has seen some serious use, its seems to have been well taken care of. While it is a mix master, I noticed that there are no arsenal rebuild marks on it. No, its not as pretty as some of the fresh arsenal rebuilds some folks got. But this gun has been there and done that for 77 years. Its got character. It shoots just like an average military issue 1911. Nothing to brag about, but I was able to keep most of my shots in the black on a 12'X12" target. I attribute that to the small sights and a really heavy trigger. By my gauge the trigger is 8 lbs 12 oz. Which is perfectly normal for a G.I. issue pistol. I've got a set of new springs ordered. I may work on that trigger a little while I have it apart. Haven't really decided yet as I may leave it just like Uncle Sam issued it. Yeah, I'm aware that some of you spoke poorly of the guns and the whole program. But I now own a piece of history. I like it!
  14. Course all ready a lot of info on these two guns on the FORUM, but I thought this a good review and includes accuracy tests at 25 yard range. https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2019/11/20/tested-taurus-tx22-g3-pistols/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=insider&utm_campaign=1119
  15. I have a chance to buy a NIB Sig P228. Made in Germany 1994. Includes box, all paperwork and holster. Seller says its been a safe queen and never fired. Asking price is $800. I'm thinking that's a little high. What y'all think is a fair price? Need to know by tomorrow morning or I'll miss my chance.
  16. Holster (phone and pistol) INFO that my son sent ($10 price range). I am not interested, maybe someone is interested. I certainly would not want to buy one without seeing it first and making sure a subcompact would fit in it. Another thing is - it would not be a fast draw and subcompact would be 6 to 8 rounds. All that said, it would be a good concealment if you desire to Carry. Lot of legal issues involved with a Legal Defense of a Self-Defense issue (better meet all the 5 Requirements). There are several models shown on EBAY in conjunction with the link ($ 10 Range). Look at this on eBay Concealed carry waist pack holster for compact 9mm & 380 subcompact pistols guns

    If you want a new firearm for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years check out https://www.RKGuns.com They are having a sale on some of their firearms. There is one in Clarksville, Tn.
  18. I got a Ruger New Model Super Blackhawk .44Mag in a trade tonight. A few “Firsts” for me. First Ruger Revolver, First Single action, First .44Mag. I’m pretty much a Smith & Wesson guy and I don’t know if I’ll be able to get onboard with this single action business, or if I’ll even keep this. But this thing is a monster. If I ran out of ammo; I could use it as a club.


    Friend sent me this Review of a TAURUS G3. Looks good, but I don't have a NEED at this time, not much into that size gun for carry and not into 9MM for target shooting (AMMO costs too much - ues 22 for targets). Maybe be a want, not need someday. LOL There is a great deal of similarity in the inner workings of the Millennium G2 (my gun), the G2C, and this G3. https://www.full30.com/watch/MDIyNjM4/taurus-g3-pistol-review-taking-it-to-another-level
  20. Anybody have one of these? What do you think is a decent price on one ? Looks to be excellent condition.
  21. I'm considering a CMMG banshee but after calling them I was told they mostly build to order so it's unlikely I can find one in a store. I'm hoping someone might have one they would be willing to let me try out. I really hate to buy another weapon without at least laying hands on it first. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Joe
  22. This is pretty cool. I don’t shoot competitively anymore, so I can’t justify the cost of one of these, but to me they are an excellent example of the shift in gun making. There is very little old school conventional “Gunsmithing” going on at Ed Brown. But there is a lot of high performance, high accuracy machining by quality Machinists, Programmers, and QA inspectors. I’ve spent my life in manufacturing. I’ve heard it all like “Things aren’t made as good as in the old days”, something must be right because “It is CNC machined” or something is special because it was “Designed in CAD”. I just smile when I see these kinds of statements. Truth is, we have far surpassed any that could be done quality wise in “the old days”. Unless someone is doing “One off” protype work or working in their garage; most everything is “CNC Machined”. And everything is “Designed in CAD”. Does that mean everything today is better than it was in the past? Absolutely not. These technologies still rely on the Machinists and the programmers (many times the same person) using them. CNC machines can make junk, and they can make it fast. These CNC machines only do what they programmer tells them to do. If he programs the part wrong; the machine will make it wrong. CNC machines are high drama. They require Machinists and Programmers that are on top of every little detail, every single minute. They require inspectors that are checking all critical dimensions, all the time. If you have high accuracy, quality machines, and you have the best Machinists and Programmers. You can make extremely accurate parts that don’t require any hand fitting; they fit together to extremely tight tolerances and work every time. In 1992 Ed Brown quit gunsmithing and went strictly design and manufacture. He retired at 65 and turned the business over to his family. With what he put in place; it can carry on. So, what does this mean to you? Well, it means you can buy a high-quality competition for gun for $2K instead of 10K. It also means if you need a replacement part, it can be shipped to you and dropped in without requiring a gunsmith. Sorry for the trip down memory lane, this isn't something new, but when I saw this; I saw a good example of a positive change with people involved that are dedicated to quality. I don’t own one of these guns, but I’d sure like to; I bet they are really something. Why doesn’t Smith & Wesson or Glock or anyone else do this? Because then they can’t sell their guns for $300-$400. But change is happening on a daily basis; someday they will. https://www.edbrown.com/fueled-series/
  23. Supposed to be available soon, MSRP $39.99. Steel aftermarket mag.
  24. I saw someone mention an 80% revolver on another forum. Anyone ever heard of something that resembles This? Of course they had no links or detailed info on it.
  25. I was about to get the IWI Masada which still seems great and all. It hasn't failed on any reviews. My OCD got me to thinking about if the removable "chassis" would wobble around inside the frame after several rounds and wear and tear and cause things to get out of specifications which would result in things not lining up for feeding and ejecting. So I got to thinking that I could just spend a little more money and get my dream gun the Jericho 941. So I did. She is all steel , heavy and built like a tank and should last me and my son's lifetime. It reminds me of the Ruger P-Series that were heavy and WAY OVERBUILT which is what I like. The barrel is chomoly vanadium like AR15 barrels. Very heavy compared to polymer guns but sweet. I don't know why I waited this long to get it. Frame mounted safety like a 1911 and ability to carry "cocked and locked". Hope you guys like the pictures. I'm going to give her a bath in Ballistol in a day or two before I shoot her.
