Glock has an "unsupported chamber" problem that deforms the brass in a way that makes reloading potentially unsafe. While other firearms have this problem, it is only the Glock that effects reloading...

Prepper, not hunter here. If SHTF, 30-06 may get hard to find. 308 is NATO standard (well, slight, almost unnotieable differences from NATO 7.62). The day may come when 30-06 gets hard to find. 308...

Beretta 96D. My employer gave me this 40cal sidearm upon completion of a project. There have been many reports of slide failures and other structural problems. My main issue is that it takes three...

First Gun

My first gun was given to me by my favorite Uncle. It was an M16 and he gave it to me at Ft Knox in 1970, soon after I Enlisted.

It depends what you want to use the shotgun for. My main concern is personal protection so I started with a Mossberg 930. It comes with a 7+1 capacity, embedded Picatinny Rail, ghost sights, and...

$) s&w

I started with a Beretta 96D years ago on advice of a LEO who loved it. I am not a big fan of it now however. It's not made anymore, so I guess others agree. The Ruger SR40c my wife uses, though, is...

Best 308

It all depends what your purpose is. Mine is defense with a lot of friendly competition thrown in for fun. Defense means semi-auto for highest volume of fire, not bolt action. It means magazines and...

Semi vs Full Auto

Full auto increases testosterone, but that's about it. One well-placed, well-aimed round is better than all the "spray and pray" in the world. The Brits and the Argentines used the same rifle in the...

What's Best?

It all depends on the mission. Are you going on days-long LRRP's? Then you probably want small and light ... something in 5.56. Assaulting an apartment house? Definitely small and light... and maybe...

Beretta 96D

This 40cal POS is the worst handgun I have ever encountered. My company gave it to me, I would never have chosen it. It has no safety. To compensate for that safety-wise, they made a trigger pull...

Home Defense

I'm just an old retired Army guy. I know that young Soldiers in Iraq I met up with liked Mossberg, especially the semi-auto 930 SPX. I've had mine for two years and never had a single failure, firing...

My vote would be for an M1A. M14 is a proven military design, but the REAL issue is range. The official "max effective range" of a 223 firing M4 is 660 meters. The max effective range of the 7.62x54...

Saiga 308's come with two 8 round mags. This keeps it a "sport model". You have to add American made parts to make it 922R compliant in order to use hi cap mags. (Google 922R for explanations.) Saiga...

Saiga 308

My 16" Saiga 308 is great. One suggestion if you intend to buy one, however, is to look at the front sight. It is pricey to modify the position of the front sight so make sure you get what you want....

I was born and raised in NY. As an old Army guy I've lived in NJ, MA, PA, GA, FL, VA, TX, MO, OK, KS, NH, and more. Now I live in CA. The gun laws here are Draconian. The Brady bums rate CA gun laws...

CA Saiga

I have a Saiga 308 with a 16 inch barrel here in CA. There is no requirement for a bullet button if you do not have a pistol grip. My Saiga, without a pistol grip, is just fine, although I may add...

Wow. This conversation is exciting! Hi-cap mags are illegal... yes they are... no they're not. Possession is legal, use is not. Possession and use is legal unless it creates an "assault weapon". Wow....

Best Training

It all depends on your objective. If you want to win a competition, then concentrate on accuracy in terms of MOA and such. If you want to be a sniper, then you need to focus on stealth and firing at...

Two Cents

I'm no expert, just an Old Soldier. My kids are all out of the nest so we don't have any safes. After decades of humping a ruck and a rifle, I see long guns in 308 as the best weapons for defense......

GSG-5 Suppressor

Yes. The GSG-5 comes in a few configurations. One of them (carbine I think) has a suppressor that is larger than the others and for some reason is considered too realistic looking so they banned it....

CA Law AB962

Your information on this law is totally incorrect and is based on many of the rumors that flew around before the actual law passed. First, the law applies ONLY to pistol ammo, not to shotgun or rifle...

I'm not a big lover of the 5.56 (.223) round. For a few bucks more you can go for a 308 bullet launcher and get lots more range, knockdown, and accuracy. Saiga is the "sporter" version of an AK,...

I'd suggest looking at a Saiga 308. I have one with a short 16" barrel and love it. The standard Saiga version, chambered in 7.62mmx39 is fine if you like that caliber, But I don't. The 308 is...
