Posted in thread: Quietest Effective Self-Defense Pistol? on 06-23-2016 at 05:11 AM
That's just the thing though, "less effective"? I'm not saying I'd take a .22 instead to
preserve hearing, but I wouldn't say a 357 magnum is more effective so much as it's overkill.
To me the magnum ...

In a self defense situation hearing protection is not a concern. If you want to reduce noise do
not use a ported gun. IMHO every one I have shot was loud as hell and had terrible muzzle
flash. I would...

The burn rate is not conducive to a case that large. MAYBE if someone had the stones and lacked
the cerebral capacity, they might find a load with a Dacron filler that would work. I have had
BAD luck ...

I have an HK-91 and a CETME. The lack of gas system makes them uber reliable. DO NOT shoot .308
ammo unless you have a broken shell extractor. The tougher 7.62 X 51 brass stands up to the
rigors of th...

Contact Alan at Sprinco. Tell him gas length, barrel length, BCG type and buffer. He can supply
the idea spring rate for that setup. His springs are first rate. I run them in all my AR's and
my S&W 10...

Another option is have one refinished. There is a shop in South Austin, on St. Elmo, West of IH
35 that does industrial plating. I have seen some very nice work come out of there. They do oil

pads!!Oh, I have 5 spares. 2 are standard length 15 rounders. For concealed carry (off duty) it
is 16 in t...

From what I gather: If you are planning on shooting subsonic heavy weight bullets (200-220gr)
the pistol length is preferable. If you are planning on shooting 110-125 gr bullets supersonic
then the ca...
Posted in thread: Although I appreciate Ruger's autoloaders... on 06-05-2016 at 04:28 AM
