Posted in thread: Did becoming a CCW holder change your attitude? on 01-02-2013 at 06:34 PM
Almost exactly 1/2 of my life revolved around booze and chemicals. I've been clean and sober
for 31 1/2 years and there has been a similar transition away from violence in my life.
Violence was my con...
Posted in thread: Need 1911 compact suggestions. on 02-04-2011 at 01:29 AM
I have an STI Lawman represents the high end and Rock Island pistols at the bottom end.
Frankly, I have just as much fun with the RIA's as I do with the STI. The STI has snob appeal
and the RIA's don'...
Posted in thread: I blame all of you. on 02-04-2011 at 12:15 AM
I have an RIA with standard grip and short slide. It is the "MS" model. It suits me just fine
and the only things I changed were the grips and I installed an arched housing. It is reliable
and well ma...
Posted in thread: Should I be worried about an alloy framed 1911? on 02-04-2011 at 12:09 AM
Most of the 4" have alloy frames. I am pretty leery of an aluminum frame, should I be?I've been
a pistol shooter for about 50 years. Most of successful shooting with a pistol starts inside
your own he...

Depending on the model number, that sounds like full retail or a bit above retail. They have
several models that do exceed that price new. How about updating the info?I agree with the guys
about the a...
Posted in thread: ak vs sks on 08-01-2010 at 02:58 AM
I was able to compete with SKS rifles at 200 yards and won a first and second place award. The
little rifles will shoot well but they don't have the "cool" factor of an AK-47. Most SKS
triggers are lo...
Posted in thread: Hk vp70 on 08-01-2010 at 02:44 AM
I shot a VP-70 in the 70's. It had the heaviest trigger of any pistol I have ever fired. The
guy who had it ordered it and we all used it one time. I'd estimate a 15-17 pound trigger pull.
It got swap...

Posted in thread: FEG PA-63 9mm Makarov on 04-04-2010 at 02:33 AM
That PA-63 is a nice little pistol. I've had two of them and had no problems with them at all.
One of mine had totally blue/black and the other had a silver frame and black slide. The 9mm
Posted in thread: Tell me about the KelTec P3-AT on 04-04-2010 at 01:34 AM
I have two of the KelTec P3AT's and one Ruger LCP. As far as I'm concerned, they are identical
with just minute differences. I carry one of them at all times.I read about the shortcomings of
