    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 i...

    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

    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 carry...

    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 o...

    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 hit...

    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?

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

    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

Only the government should have weapons as long as we don't forget who the government is in a democracy.
