  • Posted in thread: What's the thoughts on EAA Witness Pavona on 02-23-2016 at 01:34 AM
    I have an old Tanfoglio BTA90 (cz75 compact clone) from the 1980s, it's really well made and
    finished and great to shoot. I haven't looked at the newer ones, but from what I've heard they
    seem to be b...

    None of them sound like a terribly good idea ... one hit, a string of perforations up to the
    ceiling, and an empty magazine in half a second.....

  • Posted in thread: Question about .357 and .44 magnum rounds on 07-11-2015 at 10:25 PM
    Oh man, is that Coonan pretty though. I love the compact stainless. The idea of running 357
    Magnum in an automatic doesn't particularly appeal to me, though.....

    If you'd like to email the Lightning pistol manual PDF to me, I'll upload it to my website and

  • Posted in thread: Hipoint 40 S&W on 07-04-2014 at 05:37 PM
    I've never owned a Hi Point, but I have been very impressed by the fact that, for all the
    criticism they get over their looks, balance, etc, people who own them consistently report
    satisfactory perfor...

    I have an odd mix: an ex-GI 03A3 Springfield that's been converted into a target rifle, and a
    never-was-GI Universal copy of an M1 carbine (much cheaper than a real one):

    Tanfoglio TZ75 / TA90 (CZ clones) don't seem to bring more than about $300 or so used, and
    they're pretty nice guns.

    I've been seeing quite a few doctors over the past year, nothing like this has ever come up
    with any of them.

  • Posted in thread: Have I overlooked any good 9mm DA/SA range/HD guns on 09-24-2013 at 03:07 AM
    If you like the CZ, a Tanfoglio Witness might also be worth looking at. I have one of their
    older models and I like it (they're essentially a CZ copy). Mine has a decocker safety, I'm not
    sure what op...

    I have to agree - certainly none of those executive actions sound like an assault on gun
    rights, and many of them are surprising only in that they had not already been in place. I
    don't understand in ...

Here is the actual text from Washington's speech: "A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."
