  1. Introductions
    Hey everybody! First firearm forum I've signed up for and hoping to get some advice, learn some new things and see what all this has to offer. I've always been around guns on one side of my family and the other which I live with, not so much. I'm 20 and turning 21 in June this year and I'm...
  2. Introductions
    Hi - I'm a newbie from Milwaukee, WI. My father-in-law ordered me a Springfield 1911-A1 "Loaded" (Springfield Armory) for Christmas (should be in soon - can't wait). In the meantime, I'm really excited about this new hobby. I went to Fletcher Arms in Waukesha today and shot for a couple...
  3. Semi-Auto Handguns
    I just purchased a Beretta PX4 Storm 9mm Model F the other week and I am really excited about this handgun! I took it to the range the same day that I bought it and put 150 rounds through it. Flawless. This is the first handgun I have ever owned, let alone fired. So with average groupings of...
  4. General Shotgun Discussion
    Hey y'all, this past weekend I went shooting with my father and two of my friends. We took a Mosin Nagant, Mini-14, couple ruger 10/22s, some one brought a ruger 30-06 (can't remember what it was), and a 20 guage remington 870. We started off small with the .22s and worked our way up the...
  5. AR-15 Discussion
    Hey y'all, every one else posts about their new babys on here and I felt left out. This was my first AR-15 build, I had a set budget and needed to stay under it. These days I don't think many can afford to splurge. My goal was a good solid AR that goes bang and gets "minute of bad guy". I don't...
  6. General Rifle Discussion
    Alright, I am going to be refinishing a Mosin Nagant. If all goes well I'll be doing a second one. I want to refinish the stock and maybe reblue the metal. Has any one got suggestions for good cold blue products? Methods? I am still trying to decide on the best way to refinish the stock. But I...
  7. Ammunition & Reloading

I have a Ruger 10/22, SR9, Mini-14, Bersa Thunder .380 and a Saiko .222, also in the future I am buying a .270. I am trying to start reloading for the 380ACP, 9mm, .223, .222, and .270. I am looking...
  8. Glock Forum
    Hello out there. I'm hoping someone can help me. I just bought my first gun (a Glock 17) two days ago and I already got myself into a problem. When I got home I disassembled and cleaned the gun with instructions off of the internet. No problem there, but when I went to reassemble, I made a...
