Thanks guys. I wasn't sure if I was supposed to take the mags apart for cleaning or not. I'll take it apart, clean it, and look for rough edges.

Thanks

I have a fairly new Beretta-PX4 Storm (40-cal). I top-it-off ( from the mag, then re-fill the mag) and keep it 14+1, though I don't carry yet. I occasionally do this at the range, and have had no...

Good question..

In one town I used to live in they had an un-marked durango with some LED-bars from radio-shack. If it had gotten behind me before I was familiar with it, I would have thought it...

Just had this convo with an older-lookin officer in GA. He said the state allowed you to keep the gun in the g-box, trunk or in plain-view on the seat.

He said he always leaves his on the seat,...

Not always a good idea

Several years ago my friends got pulled over on a bull****-stop. Knowing the routine, they were all as polite and respectful as we could be, to no avail.

I was in the back-driverside-seat;...

NJ hi-cap mag ban?

My friend just told me her b/f got a "Glock 17" with a 10+1 capacity. That model should be a 9mm with a standard 17 round capacity.

Is there a 10-round magazine limit in Jersey? Or did someone...

.40 S&W for me!

I finally choose as Beretta PX4-Storm in .40S&W!

This gun holds 14+1 and can be extended to 17+1.

I figure thats almost as much punch as a .45, but with the hi-cap of a large 9mm! I also think...

Will prices come down?

I keep reading how ammo prices have sky-rocketed lately, causing everyone to stockpile, further exaggerating the shortage, and rising prices.

It seems to me, when everyone is stocked up a year or...

It's all a balancing act!
