Does anyone do this? I did for a while, taking a standard knife sheath and bending the belt loop backwards so it could attach to my belt while the body was inside my pants. It worked okay, and I went...

If you are about precision, then you aren't going to find cheap + accurate ammo without reloading. However, if you don't want only soft-point stuff, and are willing to potentially "settle" for 1MOA...

I am leaning more and more toward just trying to trade the .308 and P22 straight across for a Buckmark. While this has been a rather emotional time for me and I am very excited about some of my...

Any defensive use is only a tertiary role for the .22(s), behind first as a target gun, and second as a potential woods gun.

The Buckmark would not be scoped, as that would prohibit the option of...

What makes a better first gun than something that is very simple, very reliable, very easy to use, and has a low initial cost?

There are no single sources for 100% "truth," ESPECIALLY when concerning firearms. If you limit your sources, you might get lucky and get a genuinely good bit of information, or you might not.

And I'm REAALLY skeptical of this being the case. It largely depends on how each is carried, of course. But, a mag change is at least as fast as dropping / reholstering your primary, and getting a...

From what I'd read, the AR10 ran very well and it was only when they scaled it down to 5.56 for the M16 did it really start having all those teething issues. Even now, the only negative things I read...

There are full-power .44mag loads that don't penetrate any more than standard service-caliber loads. Of course, they do a whole lot more damage in that ~12-13", but not all .44mag loads are designed...

I don't doubt their ability to expand like that as much as I doubt their ability to penetrate more than 6" of flesh. If the round gets stuck in a bad guy's bicep on its way to the heart, it won't do...

I'd bet you would find a lot more info by Googling "Kriss carbine!"

Assuming a lot of people in this thread think 9mm is "under-performing," you should note that only a few .40 and .45 loads notably exceed the wounding capabilities of quality 9mms. Also note that it...
