Thanks everyone

I think a good cleaning is due. I give everything a quick pass with a wet patch after every shoot, but I didn't give the Mosin a thorough cleaning when I got it--stupid, I know, but the guy I bought...

Why a shotgun?

I'm looking for my first shotgun, mainly because I don't have one yet, but I question the logic behind a shotgun for primary home defense. I think the old argument about the "sound" is pure Hollywood...

All guns are a study in compromises. .380 is not as powerful a manstopper as a .40 or a .45, but it's easier to control and it is enough smaller to allow a noticeably smaller gun. Deeper penetration...

I've carried my snubnose before, but it's never comfortable. If I'm going to keep my jacket on (I live in Minnesota, so that's 6 or 7 months out of the year), I can cover it, but I'd much rather...

Well, you can compromise or you can lose--your choice. I don't really care what the "Founding Fathers" wanted. They don't live here anymore: I do. I want to redo my bathroom even though the original...

Mosin Nagant

I picked up a Mosin Nagant M44 and a Mossberg .22 a few years ago and I just got around to shooting the M44 last summer. I'm not a crack shot by any count (I'm mainly a handgunner), but I couldn't...

SBR question

Just out of curiosity, what is the technical difference between a short barreled rifle and a pistol? Does a shoulder stock make a pistol a rifle?

So it looks like I picked the wrong time to start reloading, huh?

Warning

Bring twice as much money as you think you'll need. Full-auto ammo goes fast.

Exactly

Thank you for proving my point, RL357.

The problem with democracy is that I don't always get my way. Compromise is the heart of democracy. It doesn't make a good bumper sticker, but it's the cold,...

The heart of the matter

This is why liberals are at odds with the gun culture. *******s like you make gun owners out to be angry and stupid. The NRA coloring book is a carefully crafted piece of NRA propaganda. It's...

Buck Squire

I started carrying a Buck folder on my belt when I was a Cub Scout (probably because Bo and Luke did.) In college and just after, I worked in an office environment and wearing a belt knife looked out...

Pocket guns

Derringers are fun to shoot, but for about the same size, you could get a Beretta Tomcat .32 or a KelTec P3AT in .380 with six or seven shots. I've wondered about the .22Mag mini revolvers myself. I...

Surprisingly good gun

I've had a Charter Arms Undercover .38 snub nose for about 12 years. I put probably 200 rounds a year through it and it puts five nice holes in the same general area just like a snub nose should.

You did nothing wrong

I have had the misfortune of holding three estate sales in two years. For a grieving loved one, just getting it done is what matters. You got a good deal, she got money she didn't have before. It...

Beretta Tomcat

I have a Beretta Tomcat .32ACP on my person at all times. It's light enough loaded that it's like carrying a large cell phone. The .32ACP gets laughed at by the gun press, but it's been around for so...
