    see 2 round...

    I have worked with 3 AR7's, two Charter Arms and one Henry. Had bad luck with all of them. The
    Charter Arms failed to fed on both of them, essentually they were very slow loading single
    shots. The Hen...

    Papoose with the hardwood stock I bought back in 1986 for $100. It is an excellent shooter.
    Unfortunately now I believe the price is double that. A buddy of mine has one he paid $269 for,
    but it has a...

    You just need to show that you can't operate a closed knife with both hands. I have some nerve
    damage in my neck that affects my thumb and forefinger (blown C5/6 & C6/7). If I pushed the
    issue, I coul...

    I've owned a hex 1899, a hex 91/30 and the M44. The 91/30 was impressive. Better than the 44;

    Could you group them into a more presentable form, please?

  • Posted in thread: accident or poor finger placement? on 07-15-2009 at 05:01 PM
    Agreed. No such thing as an "accidental discharge". It's "poor handling" in almost every
    case!Not being preachy; I've had a couple, including a 9mm through the meaty part of my left
    hand. I was rackin...

    Sorry for another dumb question but I'm not sure and this is my only reliable place to turn. I
    have a S&W M&P 15 optics ready which has no iron sights just a pic rail on the flat top and the
    front gas...
