  • Posted in thread: Great Christmas present on 12-28-2008 at 01:13 AM
    For Christmas one of the gifts that my daughter and son-in-law got me was a Crimson Trace laser
    grip for my XD40SC. It goes on a little hard, but it's easy to adjust and puts out a nice
    bright beam. I...

    I have an XD 40 SC. It's a great gun. Goes bang every time, eats whatever I feed it, hits where
    I aim, feels good in the hand, has a great light trigger, and did I mention that it's a great
    gun. My so...

    Hi Matt,How was the recoil on the DRT ammo that you shot, was it the same as any other
    frangible or standard ammo, or was it different. Also did you shoot the 9mm or the .40? Just

    I found the following at the Cheaper Than Dirt website. Does anyone have any? If so, does it
    perform as advertised? I just noticed that CTD cannot get any at this time. :(Manufacturer: DRT
    Item: AMM-4...

    Hi Mark,I'm aware of why they are designed that way by the bean counters and the lawyers. Law
    suits can cripple a company very quickly. But given the trigger feel and the inherent pull to
    the side whe...

    Hi Guys,My daughter and son-in-law came up for the weekend, and Saturday Duane and I went out
    back and punched a lot of holes in paper. He brought his Kel-Tec P3AT, his new Ruger LCP and
    his SA XD40 S...

    Hi Guys,I didn't read the other post so I don't know if this website was linked to or not. So
    at the risk of repeating information here is a link to with ballistic reports on
    different a...

    Hi Guys,I was referring to strictly self defense loads like hollow point and buckshot only. I
    haven't seen any problems with any of the rifle or FMJ pistol loads. I'm guessing that either
    people are s...

    I wanted to put in an order for some ammo yesterday and found something I wasn't expecting.
    Checking with the Cheaper Than Dirt and Midway USA websites, I noticed that buckshot and hollow
    point pistol...

    I also have an 870 Express. I installed a Remington 20" barrel with rifle sights, a Limbsaver
    butt pad, and a Choate magazine extension. I keep it fully loaded with one in the chamber and
    the safety o...
