Fifty for six bucks? I've seen fifty go for twenty bucks on a regular basis. Fifty for six bucks is cheap, especially for CCI mini mags.

I use Super X for plinking, and sometimes for hunting,...

The simple fact is, we don't have to protect our borders to stop 99.9% of illegal immigrants. What we have to do is make it illegal for them to work here, and place massive fines, and possible jail...

In my state, at least, and in several others I've been in, 40mm ammunition is perfectly legal. It's having an explosive in it that's illegal. I've used 40mm several times, but the projectile was...

Who said anything about a citizen's arrest? But if you mean Louisiana, you can, under the right circumstances, confront a criminal, and even arrest one. LA does allow citizen's arrests, but limits...

I hope you never serve on a jury. If you really have followed ths case, then you have no more idea what happened once the confrontation began than anyone else, which means you have no clue.

The Castle Doctrine is good law, and we have it on the books here in Indiana, but if you can retreat safely, you should. Most who talk casually about killing an intruder have never done so. Killing...

There's no doubt in my mind that Zimmerman is going to face criminal charges, simply because of his pursuit and confrontation with Travis Martin. He had no business pursuing the kid, or confronting...

Well, the .17 is a bunch of fun, but it really doesn't have much range over the .22 Mag, and doesn't have very good killing power, either, at least when shooting at larger game. The .17 has too much...

They're great for pocket carry. Just don't take one to an airport. I saw a show the other night about what the TSA confiscates, and the Leatherman is the number one item from men. One airport the...

I'll go with the group. I've used both, and the .22 mag is, in my opinion, far more versatile than the .17. I've taken coyotes and groundhog at 170 with the .22 Mag, , though I seldom take a shot...

Sure. And hundreds of squirrels. Even a hundred yards isn't very far for a good .22 with iron sights, and the Marlin a great rifle. The real problem with iron sights isn't accuracy, it's that few...

Always check teh law, but it is good to remember than even where it's illegal to carry a handgun under all conditions, you may still be allowed to carry a long gun.

Yes, it was "designed" this way, but it nevertheless caused problems fairly often. Yours may outlast you, but there's a luck factor involved. I've seen a bunch of older 70s start having problems...

Most rifles and handguns will chamber a round this way, but it's never, ever a good idea. Forcing the extracter can cause all sorts of problems.

The problem here isn't with the bolt, unless some...
