  1. Seems from what is said that Beretta Italy wont allow to have their "Flagship Pistol" the M9A3 to be made in Tn. due to these "Hillbillies" cant make a Quality pistol! Seems the Gallatin Quality Control does not know the meaning of "Quality" and Beretta has to repair/refinish too many M9A3's! https://www.ar15.com/forums/Handguns/New-Beretta-M9A3-s-being-made-in-Italy-and-not-America-as-in-past-Pictures-/15-179859/?page=1&anc=bottom#bottom
  2. Holster selection help needed

    Need some help with holster selections. I'm wanting to buy my boys a couple of holsters for Christmas. I need to find a light bearing holster for my son's Springfield XDM 4.5, and this one is proving to be the most difficult. He wants somewhat of a mid-ride type holster, but I'm having a whale of a time finding anything, especially from Bladetech. The only way I've found anything from them is to go on their site and overpay. The other will be for my other son's Glock 19 with a Streamlight TLR4. That one probably won't be so difficult. Any advice would be much appreciated.
  3. If interested...............

    I stopped by my gunsmith's shop today to visit my Colt when I saw a goodly array of handguns. None for my taste, but did see a pristine Colt Officers Model Match .38 with a beautiful (not Colt) walnut case. Also a fine looking (didn't examine) Colt .38 Detective Special nickeled. In the back room was a table full ow Walthers, PPK, PPK/S, P-1 and what not. This Keith Warner Gunsmiths on Kirby Parkway in the Fare Four Center, Germantown. Just thought someone might be interested. Bob Wright
  4. Today being Pearl Harbor Day, there have been some WW II stories. Here's one of mine: There was a War Bond Drive going on in Memphis, this around 1942 or so. Set up in Court Square Park in Memphis, were displays, including a German ME-109 and a Japanese Zero fighter. Along the sidewalk on Main Street was a long olive drab tent, with exhibits inside showing items and the number of $25 bonds it took to purchase them. Distinctly remember an M-1911A1 pistol (Army pistol, to me then.) and its price was three $25.00 bonds. Hot dog! I thought, I had four twenty-five dollar bonds! More than enough to buy me a .45! When the soldier told me it was not for sale, I cried. But not to where he could see me. (I was only about four or five at the time.) Bob Wright
  5. Beretta Cougar 8040?

    Anyone with any experience with this pistol? Looking at a trade for a lightly used Beretta (not Stoeger) version . My research indicates it was a pretty reliable pistol. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Folding Glock

    Why? http://palmettostatearmory.com/full-conceal-m3-folding-glock-19-gen3-9mm-pistol-w-21-round-magazine-m3g19f.html
  7. I was interested in a 380 maybe to carry, but do not like the itty bitty carry ones (they do have their advantages). Anyway, I sort of gave up on a medium size 380 to carry cauise of cost, weight, etc.. That said, there are some that would work, EX: Bersa make a Carry Model of the Bersa Thunder. Anyway, that search led me to Hi Point (USA Made in Ohio) for a fun target gun (It would be large and heavy to carry at 6.75 inches and 2 1/4 Lbs with 8 RD MAG loaded). After reviewing (U-Tube - mostly positive performance) and seeing price I bought a 380 ($129.99 plus tax and background at Bud's in Sevierville, TN). This one had only one clip (in the gun), a Ghost (peep) sight as extra, and a decent Plastic Hardcase (I did not realize I was getting a hard case when I made the buy as they show a gun, one with a commentator (that one comes with an extra 10 RD MAG), and one with a hardcase on web site -- prices vary on options). Can buy accessories online (E-Bay) and at Hi Point. I bought an extra 8RD MAG at Floyd's in Sevierville for $19.99 plus tax (that is high but decided to help a local dealer who also had 380 AMMO,brass, on sale at $8.99 plus tax). Then just ordered a 10 Rd MAG from HI Point for $19.50 free ship and no tax. I bought the gun SAT, shot 86 rounds thru it SUN. I ahd one fail to load (nose dive) after firing the very first round (second one nose dived). Then all the rest worked GREAT (no failures). I had lubed the gun SAT Eve (parts I could as I did not disassemble cause you have to punch a pin out to take slide off). I made some adjustments to the sights (probably most of it was me anyway, but it shot a bit low, 2 inches, and right, 1 inch, at 15 foot). Eventually got the last group in a 3 inch target at 15 foot (good for me). The gun is a bit as I call it (Clunky) at 29 OZ and 36 OZ with loaded MAG. It has some funny features (there is not a slide release button, it locks back after last round and you have to remove the MAG and jerk the slide back and release it to close it). Not a big deal, just an unusual thing. Once you load a MAG in it and pull slide back to load a round (the trigger pull has a sligh move to firm and then a decent release) - same on auto loads. I PRESENT all this as an opinion that it is a decent gun (reliable based on U-Tube and my limited use so far) for a VERY Reasonable Price (say around $129.99). I also notice they have Carbines in mid $300 range in all calibers (380, 9MM, 40, 45, 10MM). I am not interested, but some might be. GO TO THEIR WEB SITE. My first two Groups (Adj sights a bit between 1st and 2nd group). I wanted to post the last group all but one in black of a 3 inch target at 15 foot (one was just out of the black). Like I said, I am not a competition marksman, but did good for me after adjusting rear sight Up and to Left. This site would not allow the extra KBytes (over 49KB).
  8. My idea of a varmint gun

    This is a Colt New Frontier, in .45 Colt: It, to me, is the ultimate Colt Single Action. Medium frame, good adjustable sights, and 7 1/2" barrel. I've seen them in .357 Magnum, but they are rare. And here is a Ruger Three Screw Blackhawk in .357 Magnum: Actually I like Ruger's XR-3RED grip frame better (bite my tongue!) than the Colt grip. This gun is made on the medium frame and is about the same size as the Colt. This is a fine gun but there are still "wants" in my craw. I've long envisioned a 7 1/2" barreled, adjustable sighted .32-20 Single Action revolver, either one of these would do. But for, say groundhogs out to maybe 100 yards or so, wouldn't something like this be dandy? Maybe even coyotes? Bob Wright
  9. My idea of a varmint gun.............

    I went to the range yesterday morning for the first time since my surgery. It has been over seven weeks since I fired a shot. I took this old Super Blackhawk: I've been shooting close up, duelist style; that is standing, one handed, as ranges not over ten yards, and using a six inch stick-on Shoot -N-See target. I had figured a pretty bad outing, for lack of practice for so long. Much to my surprise, I didn't do too badly. Shooting at eight yards, twenty-five rounds went through the black, and left a large jagged hole. Why did I do so well? Well, I did spend considerable time dry firing. This helped keep my muscle tone and my concentration up to par, and I'm sure that dry firing practice did keep me in shape. Bob Wright
  10. A .32-20 Thread.

    Those that have been here a while will recall my penchant for the archaic; Lemon Squeezers, I-frames and Police Positives. Seemed like a thing to do to have a 32-20 Thread, as my "EDC" is a 1920s vintage Smith and Wesson Military and Police. Mine seems to like heavier bullets better; if I do my part she's developing a very satisfying habit of putting multiple bullets in one hole. The HSM 32-20 is loaded more warmly than Remchester, and has a large, flat bullnose profile.
  11. Just saw that the Beretta APX now has a no finger grove option in their different colored frames. $50 just like the regular colored frames with the finger groves. I have the gray frame with the finger groves but it's nice to know that Beretta is offering this. I'll try to post a link. http://www.berettausa.com/en-us/beretta-grip-no-fingers-with-3-backstraps-for-apx/e02048/
  12. The local US Money Pawn has a brand new XD .45ACP bi-tone service model (3 dot sights) for $399, MSRP is almost $600 is this a good deal?
  13. 1911

    I have been reading that Remington has issued a double stack 1911. Even has it on their web site. All I can find out it's coming to a dealer near you. What are your thoughts on it? Not so much a carry piece but home defense or range gun. I think I may have to pull the trigger. Hehe
  14. I know these are popular pistols. Not sure how long this runs. http://palmettostatearmory.com/browning-buck-mark-camper-ufx-22lr.html?trk_msg=AEJ7A25AA3N41F6A3KKQGJ9H04&trk_contact=73R1G4P74SA6SKFHB3SG00NTE8&trk_sid=MKFKAL6OAR9J84SUKLCE5E3EJK&utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=email&utm_term=http%3a%2f%2fpalmettostatearmory.com%2fbrowning-buck-mark-camper-ufx-22lr.html&utm_campaign=Daily+Deal+Email&utm_content=5%3a00+Email
  15. Comparison S&W M&P 9C 2.0, CZ P-10C

    I've got the new pistol bug... Has anyone here handled or better yet shot both the S&W M&P 9C 2.0 and tge CZ P-10C? I haven't laid hands on the CZ yet, but the M&P 2.0 seems to be a significant improvement Thanks for your help.
  16. Apologies if already covered...

  17. I just came back from the 4 day defensive handgun class at Front Sight. Pretty intense class. I pulled my firearm so many times my side had bruises. Has anyone else been out there out there for training? Anyone interested in my experience?
  18. If you had to pick between...

    If you had to pick between a Glock 19 and Glock 43 for your first Glock, which would you choose and why?
  19. Glock Gen 5 And holster FYI

    Anyone planning on adding G-19/17 Gen 5 your holster probably will not work as they are about 1/8" longer and wider. Some open top may work but will be tight. Holsters with snaps ,no way at least with my Bianchi,Safariland OWB &Aker shoulder holster that I have.
  20. Does Dry firing work?

    I went to the range yesterday morning for the first time since my surgery. It has been over seven weeks since I fired a shot. I took this old Super Blackhawk: I've been shooting close up, duelist style; that is standing, one handed, as ranges not over ten yards, and using a six inch stick-on Shoot -N-See target.

  21. Kel-Tec PMR-30 Fail to fire

    Hey guys, I just picked up a new PMR-30 and took it out for testing yesterday. Out of the first magazine I had at least 6 rounds that would not fire. I'm using one of their recommended ammo's (in the manual). The Winchester Super X 40 grain. I realize testing a different ammo type is next up, but I'm just wondering if any of you have experience with this gun and have comment. Is there something I can look at or check for issues here? Feeling disappointed that this new gun is acting up like this.
  22. I have a M&P Shield 9mm with the thumb safety. I prefer a thumb safety, but the thumb lever is too small to hit reliably 100% of the time, so I don't carry it. Is there an aftermarket part for this or does anyone have a fix? Something like the manual safety on the M&P 45 or the Taurus Millennium G2 would be ideal. It doesn't need to be a 1911-type lever.
  23. Rural King emailed that it has the Canik TP9SA in black or desert tan for $309 with no transfer fee if you pick it up at Rural King. I just ordered one. It's $349 after sales tax and $9.99 shipping. I'll have to drive to Clarksville to pick it up, but it's a not that far for me.
  24. A different kind of 300 Blackout pistol

    Here is a pistol project I just started. It is a Remington Model 7 with an 8 twist 8” barrel with PT&G bottom metal. Still trying to figure out what trigger to use. I also plan on installing a Sako style extractor. The stock is also something I need to sort out. I have some very nice walnut to work with, thanks @mhmd The barrel still needs to be profiled, going to use an M24 profile just shortened to fit an 8” barrel, thanks @LawEnforcementSalesTN My goal is to build several barrels of different calibers and be able to change barrels in minutes. Plans are a 300 Blackout barrel, 223 barrel and a 9mm barrel. And of course all will be silenced.
  25. Bond Arms 9mm Bullpup?

    Had a transfer of one yesterday. Sweet feeling, nice looking expensive little 9mm. Anyone have any experience with them?
