  • Posted in thread: .40 caliber carbine on 04-26-2014 at 11:14 AM
    Different firearms are designed to do different things. I would suspect that a .40 caliber
    carbine would be designed to give a shooter close range striking power and punch at the same
    time. Such a fir...

    There are two elements nobody has addressed here.1. Which one have you practiced with the most
    and feel most comfortable using?2. Which one lets you have good shot placement?How you practice
    is how yo...

  • Posted in thread: Millet scopes on 09-04-2013 at 12:31 PM
    I love my Millett DMS-1 scope. I have it mounted on a LaRue mount so it is easy to get on and
    off my AR rifle. You have the advantage of using a Millett like a red dot scope if you practice
    with it or...

  • Posted in thread: When you first started carrying on 09-04-2013 at 12:27 PM
    For me it is not unusual to carry two guns. In the winter I often carry one revolver in my
    outer coat pocket. I also carry one 9 mm Glock 17 under my shirt and coat. As I walk along, my
    right hand is ...

    I don't think that it would be a matter of being overrun by wild game. I would tend to think
    that it would be a matter of wild game becoming a petri dish for various diseases that would
    kill off both ...

  • Posted in thread: Best SHTF Pistol? on 05-30-2013 at 01:42 PM
    There is a reason police recruits were required to be armed with revolvers that were of .357
    magnum caliber. (A.) They were extremely reliable and (B.) they were easy to shoot. Police
    recruits start o...

  • Posted in thread: .380 HP, What's the point? on 05-25-2013 at 11:26 PM
    Shot placement. Whether it's a .380, .22 LR or a .45 I believe that shot placement is more
    important than the type of ammo. I also believe that when you talk shot placement that 2 in the
    chest and 1 t...

    My choices would be:My tactical Remington 870 shotgun.My civilian legal M-4 clone with scope on
    it.My Glock 17 pistol.

  • Posted in thread: 5.56 or 7.62x39 on 04-26-2012 at 01:11 AM
    I tried going with a 7.62 X 39 cartridge for one of my rifles. The magazines were always
    double-feeding so I canned that idea. From now on I only use an AK type rifle for my 7.62 X 39
    shooting needs. ...

  • Posted in thread: Assault on 04-26-2012 at 01:05 AM
    Go with a Glock 21 SF. They shoot a .45 caliber bullet. Oh, and police studies indicate that
    there is a pretty good chance that your friend might come back again. Invest in a slap alarm or
    some other ...
