Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

Here are my thoughts, and I might get corrective feedback from the hive. I think it depends on whether you plan to get real, stress based training or not. If yes, them get whatever is reliable and you like the look of. If not, consider a revolver. In a limited state, the capacity limit won't be as ...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

It kinda sounds like your leaning towards the revolver. It's a good choice especially for a new shooter. They are very simple to use and maintain. I would probably recommend either a Ruger or a Smith and Wesson. There are other revolver makers out there but they tend to fall into one of 2 categorie...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

The rounds I'm most interested in are .45 due to mag limitations, and .22 due to ammo cost. This is my first thought as well - unlike in most places where I would suggest starting to refine a search based on magazine capacity in a reliable caliber, in this case you are rounds limited so: 1) Look at...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

Just something to throw out there, it might be worth getting a gun from a stable manufacturer with a good track record and solid customer service and warranty. With the way things are going, you don't wanna end up with a gun that is broken and can't be fixed. I don't really follow (I can't keep up)...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

First handgun? Consider choosing a handgun model that is particularly suitable for dry fire practice. Dry firing is a great way to drill on the cheap, for practicing basic skills like reloading, trigger control, sight alignment, drawing, etc. And dry firing drill can be extremely convenient too, si...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

It went up $20 since I bought mine, but still well under your $500 limit. Heck, with the rebate you could get two for under $500 http://palmettostatearmory.com/s-w-m-p-45-shield-pistol-180022-with-thumb-safety.html Wow $234 after rebate?! That is a great price. Bought mine when it was $289.99, so $...

Re: California Safe pistols Please suggest.

It would help if you could tell us what you wanted it for. Plinking, concealed carry, home defense? A 22 is great for plinking and practice but most would not consider it a great home defense round especially in a pistol. Since its a rimfire round reliability can be an issue. Lot's of people love t...

California Safe pistols Please suggest.

Any suggestions on what I should consider buying? The rounds I'm most interested in are .45 due to mag limitations, and .22 due to ammo cost. Id like to keep it under $500 if possible. Bonus points if there is a conversion kit that lets me switch between .22 and .45 I own a bolt action rifle but hav...

Thanks for all the input! I went with the REI Trekker 1.75 packs small enough and life time no questions asked return policy. 90% sure my girlfriend is going to steal it from me.

Re: whats your opinion on a folding saw.

Thanks all for the feedback. I had real trouble finding online reviews or data on this particular saw. But since Gerber has a lifetime warranty and it will only get used a few times a year ( I usually break up wood with my foot and knife), I'll hold on to it for now. If its not up to speed, Ill sell...

whats your opinion on a folding saw.

Anyone use a Gerber Myth folding saw? I just received one. How is it on wood? I don't saw many bones and am wondering if this would even work for me.

Thanks

Carving utensils out of cottonwood?

I was going to try to make a kuksa, spoon and some components of my bowdrill kit from a couple chunks of cottonwood I found. Anyone have experience carving it?
