  1. Just in case anyone is interested in less loading at the range. Glock .40 Cal 50 Round Drum Magazine $29.99 at Classic Firearms. Classic Firearms .40 cal drum
  2. Hello members , sorry to ramble on here as of lately , I have been making quite a few topics since I'm stuck home with my little one that is sick with the flu. Thank God she is getting better. Anyways , I hear a lot of people moaning over the Security 9's manual safety . I don't like it either since I am a long time Glock owner and I like things as simple as they can be. My question is this : Why do people complain about the Security 9 having a manual safety but they seem to be fine with the LCP II even though it does not have a manual safety ? I think they are almost the same and are both hammer fired . Again , I like guns with no manual safety but I never hear people complain about the LCP II not having one. Am I missing something ?
  3. G26 Gen 5 Glock

    I have a budy looking at buying one of these. Any pros and cons about the gun would be very appreciated. Thanks Bersaguy
  4. First time selling firearms

    I have several firearms that I've decided to part ways with. I've never went through the process of selling guns before and would like to do this in person instead of going over the internet. What would be the best way to handle this for someone in South East TN. Specifically which store/pawn/range would you recommend in this area that would treat me right. I don't necessarily mean give me good price for the guns, but rather make sure that all the paperwork is done correctly and generally someone who would be willing to answer my questions. thanks in advance for all the suggestions.
  5. Springfield XDE

    Was at the range today with my brother and started talking with this guy who just came in, had a brand new never shoot XDE in 42acp. Looks just like my XDS but with a hammer, DA/SA decocker if thats what you want, or carry cocked and locked SA. Might get one in 9mm. I prefer all metal guns but there is something to be said for a inexpensive plastic one too.
  6. Dan Wesson Pistol Pack

    Saw in another thread someone talking about a Dan Wesson. This is my pistol pack that I have owned since 1981. I thought I would pull it out of the safe and show it off. It is a model 15-2 in .357. I love this pistol. They are great guns and very accurate.
  7. Ruger Blackhawk vs. Colt New Frontier

    I believe most of you here know that my tastes run to the Single Action revolver. Seems I've stated something to that effect here. My preferences run to Single Actions with fine adjustable sights, case hardened frames and eye-catching grips. Here are two such revolvers, both in .45 Colt, one a Blackhawk and one a New Frontier: Both of these have the 4 x/8" barrels, 4 5/8" for the Ruger , and 4 3/4" for the Colt. In my opinion, the Colt Accro sight is better of the two, having a flat face and all steel construction, though Ruger does now offer all steel. The Ruger rear sight has a radiused surface that does catch light at times, not as precise as the Colt. As to Colt's Eliason as on current New Frontiers, it overhangs the hammer a trifle too much to suit me, and can catch the thumb when cocking. The wide trigger on the Ruger is much more pleasant to me, as opposed to the narrow trigger of Colts. And (bite my tongue here) I prefer the XR-3RED grip profile of the Ruger to the Colt's plowhandle grip profile. I know, I know, the Colt grip is the grip "to fit every hand" but the Ruger just handles recoil a mite better, and is less likely for the cocked hammer spur to dig into the flesh of the shooting hand. Now here is the same Colt with a .44 Special Ruger Flat Top, even closer to the Colt in size and proportion. This gun is one of the finest Rugers to come out yet, but it incorporates the Colt grip profile. While I do like the smaller frame, I wish they'd have put the XR-3RED grip on it! Bob Wright
  8. RIA 1911's now days ?

    I had a Rock Island Armory 1911 GI model a few years ago . It ran good. How are the newer ones running ? Still good or what ? I am specifically asking about the full size GI model in 45acp . I would ask over at 1911 forum but they get a little picky if a gun cost less than $1,000 LOL . Thanks for any information.
  9. Non Shooting pistol match.........

    At our church recently, East Side Baptist Church in Memphis, we held a Sportsmans Banquet. The basis of the banquet was for all who wished, to contribute game meat for the banquet. I had venison stew, venison chili, bacon wrapped duck breasts, tossed salad and pecan pie with strawberry cake. A feature of the event was a "pistol match." This utilized a 9mm pistol of some plastic design. A laser device was placed in place of a live round in the chamber. Shooting was at a projected target and firing from three, six, and nine yards back, two rounds each distance. The target projected the target image on the wall, and each "shot" resounded with the sound (sort of) of a shot, and a bullet hole appeared on the projected target for bystanders to see. The pistol had to be racked after each shot. The "prize" was a tin sign of an old S&W advertising sign. I won the pistol match, and took a lot of ribbing the next Sunday morning. Bob Wright
  10. Silencer Co Maxim 9 issues

    My Maxim 9 is back at Silencer Co for its third time. They've paid for shipping each and every time. However, they've yet to fix the firearm any time. The firearm has repeated light strikes. They even asked me what ammo I was using. That consisted of Fiocchi, PMC, and Sellior and Bellot I believe. They said they had that same ammo on hand and would test it. Every time the firearm comes back, it works for 50 rounds, then it starts having issues about 30% of the time. I don't know if it's the heat, dirt, or something else. Whenever I ask what they tested with, they tell me they used something else other than what we discussed. The customer service is generally poor. None of the emails through the first two trips back were even signed. I never knew if I was talking to one person or a group of people. I complained and got in co tact with someone higher up. I finally got a name. They've had it since the 24th of January this time. I sent an email on the 12th of February to get an update and no response. It's pretty sad. I'm pretty unhappy at the moment.
  11. Sig Sauer p365

    Long story short, I ended up with a p365. The first 200 rounds or so, it had the failure to return to battery. It happened with both mags and probably 20% of the time. It also failed to lock the slide back on the final round about half the time. When it did fail to return to battery, the lighest touch slid it home. I cleaned it up, smoothed the extractor out, and oiled it up. Shot it over 200 more times and have had no failure to return to battery. The slide still doesnt lock back every time shooting it one handed, but it does lock back about 90% of the time now two-handed. Everyone that has held it pretty much loves it. I've only had one complaint about it being too small actually. The frame is slightly wider than a Glock 43. Just a sliver. I think it feels great with either supplied mag. I'll try a 12 rounder if I ever see one. The trigger is quite nice with a good reset. The trigger feels even better shooting it. It "surprised" me a few times. My Glocks never do that but better triggers do some times. My front sight was dead as they all seem to be. I've already called Sig; the x-ray sights are supposedly on their way to me. I'll report back when I've put more rounds through it. I don't plan on cleaning it between now and then.
  12. Has anyone sent their gun back to get it replaced or repaired through this? Times about to expire soon to do it and I have a Pt111 G1 that I'm thinking about sending in. The way I read it they can't repair them, they just have to replace them with a G2. Mine is pretty beat up because I bought a used. But I've bought some extra magazines and even an extra slide for it. So on the fence about it.
  13. Since we're talking big bore revolvers (.45 Colt thread), Let's go ahead and talk about my favorite big bore wheel guns, The .44 Special. The .44 Magnum may be more popular, but the .44 Special will handle anything a handgun can be asked to do without all that buck & roar. The special makes an outstanding defense round and is capable of taking any game up to Black Bear. For a big bore, the recoil is mild and the cartridge is famous for its accuracy. I love these things! Top row: S&W 2nd Model .44 Hand Ejector 5" barrel: This one shipped Jan 22, 1924 to the Joplin, Missouri Police Dept. Man if this one could talk.... S&W 1st Model .44 Hand Ejector 5" barrel. AKA the "New Century Model" or "Triple Lock" due to the extra lock built into the cylinder crane. Shipped May 21, 1910 to Birmingham Arms & hardware, Birmingham, Al. 2nd row and middle bottom: In 1983 Smith & Wesson re-introduced the .44 Special with a run of 7,500 Model 24-3s. Most were 6 1/2" barrels with 2,625 made with 4" barrels. They proved to be so popular that Lou Horton Distributors commissioned S&W to make 5000 3" guns. I am fortunate enough to have one of each. Bottom left: Charter Arms Bulldog 3" made in 1985. The original pocket power house! Bottom right: S&W Model 696 no-dash. Made in August, 1997. A 5 shot .44 built on S&W's L-frame with a 3" barrel. These are highly sought after as they were the last S&Ws built before the introduction of MIM parts on the dash 1 version. I know a lot of you own .44 Magnums, now fess up. Who shoots them more with .44 Special ammo?
  14. https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/weapons/a16720630/browning-hi-power-production-ends/ End of an era here. I first saw this legend in 2002. Was the issued sidearm of the Canadian battalion I was working with. If you own one, the gun itself will last into the 21st century with proper care, but mags maybe hard to come by, so I'd get a few more.
  15. Shooting at School

    My wife was reading the paper tonight about the shootings at schools. One was a girl that took a pistol in her backpack, dropped the backpack, and the gun fired. i didn't think that was supposed to happen. Am i wrong? Does anyone know the type or model of pistol involved?
  16. Well I finally did it

    For some reason I've put off buying a CZ handgun for ages. Finally got around to it...
  17. Quantico Tactical used to sell S&W in the LEO/Military program. Anyone know who sells S&W firearms to retired military under the S&W LEO/Military program in the Nashville/Clarksville area?
  18. Glock 19 PMAGS Free to a good home

    Hi Folks, I've got to fly back to the Peoples Republic of California early tomorrow morning, and I have 2 brand new Glock 19 standard capacity PMAGS I picked up for some recreational activities while on business... don't want to risk a felony importing them into CA(sad story)... so if anyone wants them just reply to this post and I'll tell you where they are (at a hotel near BNA). It's either that or throw them in the garbage. I'd rather they got used up.... Thank you, Mr. M
  19. S&W Announce New 380 Shield EZ

    More on the gun here: https://www.juliegolob.com/mp-introduces-mp380-shield-ez-pistol https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/mp-380-shield-ez-manual-thumb-safety February 5, 2018 New M&P380 Shield EZ pistol features easy-to-rack slide, easy to load magazine Smith & Wesson Corp. today announced the addition of the new M&P380 Shield EZ pistol to the company’s market-leading M&P Shield pistol series. Built for personal protection and every-day carry, the M&P380 Shield EZ is chambered in .380 AUTO and is designed to be easy to use, featuring an easy-to-rack slide, easy-to-load magazine, and easy-to-clean design. When we set out to design the M&P380 Shield EZ pistol, our goal was to deliver an all-around, easy to use personal protection pistol – from loading and carrying, to shooting and cleaning. Throughout the development process, we focused on key areas that customers told us were important – the ease of racking the slide and loading the magazine. With that in mind, we reduced the amount of force required to rack the slide, and developed a magazine that is both easy and efficient to load. We have incorporated both of these new features into the M&P380 Shield EZ pistol, allowing consumers of all statures and strengths the opportunity to own, comfortably practice with, and effectively utilize this exciting new pistol. The new M&P380 Shield EZ pistol provides an easy-to-use personal protection option for both first-time shooters and experienced handgunners alike.” – Jan Mladek, General Manager of M&P and S&W Brands Built for personal and home protection, the new M&P380 Shield EZ pistol is the latest addition to the M&P M2.0™ family and features an 8+1 round capacity and a 3.675” barrel. The M&P380 Shield EZ pistol ships with two 8 round magazines that include a load assist button for quick, easy loading, as well as a picatinny-style equipment rail to accommodate accessories. The pistol also features an optimal M&P pistol 18-degree grip angle for a natural point of aim, white-dot front and adjustable white-dot rear sights, and a light, crisp trigger with an MSRP of $399. The M&P380 Shield EZ pistol has begun shipping, and will be widely available at firearms dealers across the nation by the end of February 2018. M&P380 Shield EZ pistol features include: Easy-to-Use Design Easy-to-rack slide for trouble-free manipulation Tapered rear slide serrations, providing an easy-to-grasp surface Easy-to-load magazine design with load assist button for quick, easy loading Superior Performance One-piece, single action trigger for crisp trigger pull with tactile and audible trigger reset Windage-adjustable, white dot rear sight M2.0 enhanced grip texture optimized to size and .380 AUTO recoil Superior Controls Tactile loaded chamber indicator to both see and feel if a round is in the chamber Reversible magazine release that’s easily adjusted for left or right hand operation Available with ambidextrous manual thumb safety
  20. If I Only Had One Concealed Carry...

    If budget or some other constraints were to lock you into only having a single carry gun, what would it be? Right now I'm leaning toward the Glock 26 ... more capacity (10) than a single stack, but still concealable in the summer. What's your opinion on this subject?
  21. FightLite SCR “AR” Pistol

    Just when you thought you’d seen it all, an AR pistol with Shockwave grip. Learned of this from Smoky Mountain Guns & Ammo’s full page sale ad in yesterday’s Sunday paper. Being offered for $799.99. https://fightlite.com/collections/fightlite-raider-pistol
  22. So both Army guns will fire if dropped, both guns are only 95% and 90% reliable with HP's and only 70% and 60% with ball ammo! The drop fix which Sig did to all MHS pistols before recalling the P320's actually cause the trigger mechanisms to crack in military guns! The gun ejects live ammo with spent ammo! I have never heard of this and don't see how since when empty is ejected the Slide after going forward goes back again to eject live round? Need more info on this since a live round needs to have Slide cycled to eject it! Well i wont get a P320 since it seems the drop safe fixes don't work in long run and cause other issues, i wonder if this might be the end of Sigs P320 line? http://amp.timeinc.net/thedrive/the-war-zone/18047/armys-new-pistols-often-eject-live-rounds-and-dont-work-well-with-regular-bullets?source=dam
  23. Yeah, I know, all the gun blogs are claiming that the Sig P365 is the greatest handgun in the history of the universe, no one will ever again buy a Shield or a Glock 43, etc. Two shooters of my acquaintance have already said they are selling their Shields because of the magnificence of the P365. Neither has ever seen or handled one. Corporate news releases and reviews by gun writers are fine, but not authoritative. I'm interested, but I'd like to see one myself before deciding if I want to buy it. So, has anyone here actually seen one? Any stores in Middle TN stocking them? Inquiring minds want to know.... Thanks, Whisper
  24. My wife wants a revolver. Both of us are new to shooting, so we are not familiar with the makes and models available. She wants one where there cylinder hinges out, so she can load all rounds at once, using a moon clip or speed loader. She has long fingers ( she's six feet tall) so she wants a gun that feels good in her hands. But, she doesn't have strong hands, so lighter weight and low recoil is a plus. (I know lightweight and low recoil may not go together. ) Caliber, bigger than 22. Thanks for your help.
  25. Finally got to shoot my XD .45
