Re: The battle of the PCCs

I wish someone would make one compatible with XD mags; I already own the pistol, dangit. Theoretically I could pretty easily convert my mags for a Beretta 92-compat one, but AFAIK offhand there's only the CX4 Storm and some even more expensive AR PCCs. :\ look up Thureon Defense, they make an AR-is...

I would also imagine that the system is weight sensitive. too little and it would stay at the top, too much it would bottom out.

Re: "Blast" from the past: the USFA Zip 22!

Also, didn't USFA used to make really good Colt SAA clones or am I thinking of another company ? Nope, you're right. They even sold the tooling for the SAA clones to finance the manufacture of Zip22s. Apparently the owner thought they'd sell a gajillion of the Zip22s and buy the tooling back later....

But i will say that the Ammo Brick is actually really sturdy and i don't see the handle breaking or bending under normal use.
it is likely to come off on one side when sitting around (yes bending the handles closed can fix this). I say this as an owner of a couple of water bricks.

Re: Mossberg 500 based home defense setup

take a look at the Knoxx SpecOps Stock, the adjustable stock lets you change the length of pull quick and easy. it reduces the felt recoil, not as mush as they clamed, but my shoulder feels a difference. You will still have the issue with reaching the safety. would you consider making the mossy dedi...

Re: Mossberg 500 based home defense setup

why the folding stock? sure it takes up a little less space to store it, but adds another action before your gun is ready for use. also keep in mind that a pistol grip on a Mossberg means you have to move your hand to disengage the safety. I would also recommend adding a light to it, so you can posi...

Re: Best cheap 9mm for PAW trade? Star BM 9mm for $200?

the star BM is a nice little pistol, that has about the same grip angle as a 1911. I have had one for several years now, and just picked up another for under $200 OTD (including shipping & transfer fees). they are surplus, so the condition and finish wear is inconsistent. my second one the safety is...

Re: The Day of EDC Victory

we have a "no weapons policy" but no guidance on what is a tool or a weapon. I have commented to my director that there is nothing on his desk that couldn't be used to kill him, so it must all be weapons.

it is fun to have a reputation of being a smart ass.

I'll toss that out later on, still fighting the good fight and trying to convince her to stick with her Ruger SR22 and since she is spending the weekend here it could be a long fight.
Skip the fight and just get her a HK P30 40S&W V3 for $500 from CDNN sports.
