On the ride home i already thought about selling off the glocks and replacing with all M&P's.

Also a guy working the shop had an AKM i think it was .. well looked like an AK of some type had a side folding stock. He hand bandanas and all kinda cloth wraped around it for looks. The other guy working there took a key ring off his keys and put in the hole of the cleaning rob that was under the barrle. The guy was so delighted with the key ring.

That will last until you buy magazines. Also the Shield really has the second best factory M&P trigger, beat out only by the VTAC M&P. The rest desperately need Apex triggers.

The shield tempts me. I'm stuck between it, a J frame, Kahr CM40 and a PF-9. I need me a pocket gun.

Well what got me on the idea was a guy was looking for a compact .38 special revolver for his girl. I had the bright idea of a compact revolver or a smaller 9mm. Looked at Keltec PF9 a Sig P290 i think , a S&W 686 i think it was compact internal hammer revolver and a few others. The shield had the best in store feel for me . Took the holster out and put the gun in holster and all and fit me well .

I saw the mags for the shield were $40 bucks at the shop

I have heard some good things and bad things about the fury, but for the price of 400 dollars it's might be worth the plunge. I have had experience with the Saiga shotguns and those did not run too smoothly out of the box. I can get the BR-99 for around the same price, but I am curious if it's mostly plastic. Always wanted a 12 gauge mag fed shotgun probably as cheap as you can get.

Well took a detour off tavor road

rather "seasoned" S&W .32 long, finish is a bit weathered but the action is great and none of the screws are bitched up. Needs a good cleaning but it should be a great shooter.

Well took the shield out to the range put 200 rounds through it. Had 2 mess ups while extracting a spent case while feeding a live round in to the chamber. Didn't do to bad i guess, not sure if i should do a full write up or not. Maybe tomorrow.

Finally! There is a 9mm upper inbound to go with my Double Diamond Glock mag lower. Now I just need to wait for the extra heavy buffer weight and I should be rocking some 9mm down range!

Did someone say pump action AR? 300 BlkOut please.

I actually saw this and thought it might be viable on the Australian market, since lever-action rifles appear to be verboten but not pump-action ones. Alas, the law appears to flat out ban even guns that have a legal action if they "substantially resemble" a military semiautomatic rifle.

^
I'll admit my cc is going to still be over 7k after this :vmad: :oops:
I do have all the rifles I wanted and most of the mags I wanted before stupid local laws though. I've never run one this high and I"m not happy about it. I don't have any school debt anymore and my condo is down to like 90k, so things aren't too bad I guess by average standards. I reeaaallly hate carrying cc debt tho :words:

It's really impeding my suppressor plans :clownshoes:

We owe more for law school then the house. BUT that will pay off in the end.

Great Article. Thanks again!

Anyone know of a folding front sight for the AK series of rifles ?

I've seen some pics of a Russian or otherwise Soviet-Bloc soldier with an AK that has a folding front sight, but I don't know if it's just a prototype for the Russians or an actual production piece.

I've never heard of one. Don't see the point though, you can't mount a scope low enough for the sights to be in the way

Good point.

I was just curious as to whether or not one existed outside of Russian prototypes.

I've seen some where a front sight has been adapted from an AR folding sight after the owner took their original site off.

That's about it. Not exactly sure why they did this, but it's been done.
