How did you feel it felt compared to a 1911 of the same general size? Were they similar? (I also have larger than average hands; so that's really good info.)

No, but that does not seem to be how the gun business works. There are lots of gun stores that don't have a range attached. Ranges tend to have the 'standard stuff' available for rent. Glocks, S&W,...

We have a big problem that both of our parties are authoritarian and want these powers for the government. :(

Thoughts about STI Double Stack?

I've really liked the triggers on the 1911s that I've fired, but there's something about the single stack that has kept me away. 1911's are fantastic, but there's a reason Browning went on to create...

Notably, the public schools were also good in the 60s and 70s. The American Teachers Union was formed in 1916 and had 45,000 members in 1960 and 400,000 members in 1970. So the schools were good when...

New Toy: Ruger Mk3 Competition

My wife wanted a 22 for her gun bag for Giftmas. It really does look just like this: Ruger® Mark III™ Competition Rimfire Pistol Models (http://www.ruger.com/products/markIIICompetition/models.html)...

That's my issue. It's the same reason I no longer give to the CCF (Christian Children's Fund.) I cannot stand the f'ing junk mail. I can't even imagine the junk mail the NRA must produce.

I really enjoy shooting my mkiii target. I paid somewhere between $450 and $500 new. The feature I don't like is the chamber loaded indicator. It makes it harder to clean and does not really add any...

Sight Picture at 20yrds+

So, I'm reading about people shooting tight groups without optics at ranges well in excess at 20 yards+. I have a question about that: If you are forming the sight picture by focusing on the front...

The principles involved make this a complicated issue. On the one hand, it would be nice for CCW to be uniform across the states. On the other hand, uniformity limits state's rights to decide for...

Seems unanimous. Too bad there's such consumer choice on the 1911. :( Saying 'get a 1911' is much less specific than saying 'get a Sig 229'. The stickied post in the 1911 forum talks about the range...

What Next?

"Own and shoot handguns" has turned into a great hobby. Here's what my wife and I own and shoot: 9mm M&P. Ruger MkIII .22lr, Colt Frontier Scout .22lr.

They are each their own fun thing. The M&P...

Going to be an interesting 20 years. I predict uprising by the armed poor and a flip in the political parties that support gun rights and gun control. This income inequality of ours is not going away...

As further followup: Left my sunglasses at the range. We had to go get them, so we shot both days this weekend. That's about 500 rounds through the MkIII over the two days without doing an initial...

As a followup, I bought a MkIII target just today and headed straight to the range. It's accurate, cheap to shoot and I love the trigger. By the end I was running the target out to 70'. At 70', my...

This was all very helpful. Thanks for the alternatives.

The 1911 training comments are good; though my 'more serious' gun is a S&W M&P rather than a 1911. For that reason I added a M&P 22 (a gun...

Thoughts on Ruger Mk III ?

Just got back from the range where a friend had brought a 50th anniversary Ruger Mk II. What a fun gun. I'm new to shooting, had only ever fired 9mms before today. Now I'm thinking about buying a Mk...

It seems perfectly good. 9mm seems to be a good 'middle of the road' cartridge. The gun gets strong reviews. The changeable backstraps give me a chance to change the feel if my view of what's...
