Re: Guns


I will continue to carry my 340PD as my every day, because....it is a revolver, it will shoot .357, and it is ready top go on the draw. I leave the 938 in the drawer now...but I do have a great holster for my Ruger GP.....and in winter, I carry it...because, it is a revolver, it is .357, and I shoot it well.

And I am a 1911 guy.

If I don't use the stock sighting, I set up for low lighting. Even if it it isn't the best for good lighting, good lighting isn't a big problem to begin with.

That red dot sight isn't a laser. It's just a dot on the lens. That way there's no way the perp can trace it back to the shooter.

I can see my green laser in daylight. Helps that it's a strobe. The only issue with green is it seems to run down a battery faster from everything I've read.

The key benefit of an RDS is that you’re looking through the glass vs trying to find and chase a visible dot. Some people have trouble with visible dots because it magnifies the natural “wobble.”

I have a HiPower Browning 9mm, an SP-101 Ruger 38/357 combo, S&W M&P AR15 5.62 (they legal in NJ now with mag cut to 10 shots), and I just got Savage .308 Trophy Hunter and for the past few weeks been thinking getting a license to get an IWI Israeli Masada 9mm, read some good reviews on it, sounds like a series gun competitor to Glock.

It’s funny how every gun that comes out is hyped as a “Glock 19 killer.” It’s a good hint at which gun to buy.

Re: Guns


Different ones, different purposes. I had a 17L that was better for some competitions than a 19.

Still, gun is better than no gun.

Correct. The 17L isn’t marketed as a “Glock 19 killer” just like the Ford Expedition isn’t marketed as the “Ford Explorer killer.” Every plastic 9mm with the same size frame from every other manufacturer is.

Glock is still a good standard. Reasonably priced without being cheap pot metal, dependable, easy to break down, easy to modify, handles nice just light on aesthetics.

You can get a custom paint job on anything. You could have the only shamrock glock around.

Re: Guns


Y’all only shoot pistols?

I got a few, but don’t shoot them a lot except the .22lr. Ruger Mark 2 for Friday night competitions. Just picked up a few Ruger Wranglers, they are pretty fun for the price. Also found a low number 1950 ruger red eagle at the Gun Show a couple weeks ago, old trapper had it. Thing is awesome

I try not to buy a gun every week but..........

Re: Guns


I'll shoot anything, even black powder.

My uncorrected vision gives me fits with most open sights. Carpal tunnel messes up my pistol accuracy, so I don't do targets any more. Prior to that, my 22kr target pistol scoped would print 1.5" groups at 100 yds.

I showed my brother a .24" group I shot with the 22 target rifle at 50 yds, and he ribbed me because I had a flier.

Re: Guns


a glock is a pure combat pistol.

tried and proven...

not necessarily popular among recreational "protect my house" owners.

i am a dyed in the wool Colt 1911 fan.

weapon of choice is a customized Colt Combat Commander.

incredible weapon & round....

now days, glock wins hands down....

40 cal is my choice

I had a 50 cal black powder rifle my brother built. Fun to shoot is an understatement.
