I originally was going to say "It'll become less stiff the more you play with it", but somehow that didn't quite ring true... :p

What's the best .22 Conversion Kit for XD-45?

In response to my wistful complaint about 45ACP ammo prices, a guy at a local gun shop rattled off about 2 or 3 brands making .22 conversions for plastic guns, XD-45ACP assumed included. The idea of...

Why isn't a 7.62x39 AR the Perfect Rifle?

After 47 years of owning nothing more than a Daisy BB gun as a kid, this year I bought a Mossy 500 and an XD-45. I am now scoping out (pardon the pun) rifles. I tried a friend's FAL (7.62 x 51), and...

I had the same issues with mine - it's a break-in thing. All works well now. And I still use the loader since it just makes it easier to me.

I have a couple of 5-rd packs of "00 Buckshot", 15 pellets each, so I know what I have there. That and the shells are 3" as well. Maybe I should use that for my HD. All I know is that the power...

I may already have #4 bird at home. The package says "#4" and "shot" and "2-3/4" and that's about it. It's a pack of 25, not 5 or 10, so maybe that means it's bird not buck. How does one tell? If...

I have both handy. The XD is my immediate pal, and then if time permits, I'll slip on my Mossy 500 with its shoulder strap. Tough question tho - I guess that's why SO many guns are made - everyone...
