Re: Anyone ever give up on a caliber?

I gave up on .32 ACP when ammo went from $10 a box to $25+ The Keltec P32 was a cute little purse gun but well .32 is pretty anemic and did not put down a raccoon cleanly.

Re: How should I store my water: Size Matters Edition

Looking at your location makes me wonder if you've factored in the possibility of them freezing, and what your plans were with that in mind. Since larger volumes will take longer to freeze solid you'd have water available for a longer time in the event of a cold snap with the bigger drums. But, why...

Re: FNH FS-9

Price comaprison wise. I would probally get the glock as $150 more for ammo and gear. Actually that is why I got my Glock. I could get it for $200 less then the XDM or the M&P. But if the FN fits your hand better or is more comfortable to shoot get the FN. Durability wise either should be a good cho...

Re: Taurus revolver

Hey, I had some issues with a 5 shot Taurus 605 snubby but was able to get it ironed out using a wolff hammer spring. I dont know if you can get the below assortment on your side of the pond. But if you can you could try out a couple different spring combinations. http://www.midwayusa.com/product/11...
