The battle of the PCCs

I want a PCC - 9mm is so cheap (for now...) and it just seems fun gun to add to the arsenal. Here are the options I'm considering with pro's and con's I can think of - looking for feedback and experience from people who own/have shot. Ruger PC9 Pro's: - Uses Glock mags - I have a bunch already - Goo...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Whenever I visit the PSA website I have the urge to make an impulse buy - been good so far but wew some of those deals.

Re: Sanctions on Russian Ammo?

Just keep in mind when stocking up that defensive handgun ammo is the ammo you want to invest in the least. Most of it relies on a minimum velocity to perform properly and even a relatively small loss in velocity can cause problems. Can you expand more on this for someone like me still newer to the...

Re: Short high waisted jackets. Sick of this style!

Re: Building a basic hand-tool kit!

On the screwdrivers I highly recommend these for their versatility and durability: LENOX ALL-IN-ONE SCREWDRIVERS A pair of the 9-in-1 models will handle quite a lot of the things you want a screwdriver or nutdriver for. On the slipjoint pliers, a set of these in all three sizes but especially the 5...

Re: Mental health disorders rising in every country

Yup Production - heck maybe I'll turn this G34 into a Carry Optics gun though and get a CZ SP01 for a non race Production gun. It's fun but I'm not 100% sure I want to go all in on Production and get a Shadow2 or something. Yeh typo on my part I mean match % does not correlate to ranking at all. I o...

Re: Bison insulated jacket.

Had to watch the video to figure out what the ratio was; 50% bison to 50% polyester. what you gain from natural fibers (temperature regulation, no melt, anti-microbial, moisture properties) are largely neutralized by placing it inside a waterproof breathable shell, I'd be much more interested if yo...

Re: How Close Are We to Another Financial Crisis?

Vox is a heavily political site. That being said asking 'experts' about a crash I find a bit amusing. 2008 was seen by very few people so it is probably fair to characterize it as a Black Swan type event - what are the odds the next crisis is also a Black Swan -aka something we can't see until it hi...

Re: The Coming Civil War

my local Walmarts still hide the .22lr ammo under the counter. If you ask, it's there, but they clearly dont want you buying it by the 5000 rd case. 6c per round is a lot more reasonable than 16c a round, that much is certain. I'll keep voting for Republicans for that reason alone, even tho I've st...
