Re: Accuracy, Glocks, and XS Big Dots - A Conundrum

The Sig is a completely different pistol than the Glock. Different grip angle, different trigger, different sights, different slide profile etc... try shooting another Glock... if it doesn't happen with that one, then you can be sure it isn't your technique.

Re: mods for 1911 a1

+1 to grips, sights and good mags. I've used CMC Power Mags and Wilsons, and never had problems with either. I've heard pretty good things about the Norinco 1911 clones, but never tried one. Shoot it a lot, at least 500 rounds to break it in. Keep it cleaned and lubed.

Re: Quick, defend yourself: What do you have on hand RIGHT n

At work, a lot of heavy equipment and tools, no firearms or weapons other than small pocket knives and the like allowed in a mine. Federal rules and all that... At home, an overactive 3 yr old with 7 brothers and sisters and an extremely protective mommy... My guns are kept unloaded and safe, but I ...

Re: First Full Auto

+1 on the Norrell 10-22. That thing is just plain cool.
Add to that a HK UMP 45
I'd be happy with that.

Re: The Minimalist Arsenal

The smallest my arsenal has been since I was 16 has been my Savage 340 30-30 bolt gun and my single shot Marlin 22. I am comfortable enough with that combo. Currently my arsenal is quite a bit better stocked, though. Ideally I'd add a decent handgun and a shotgun to round it out. The 340, while not ...

Re: .22 Handgun for survival

Actually, the Ruger 22 auto's barrel can be removed. It is not integral to the receiver. It is threaded into the upper receiver, and the threads are coated with Silver Solder. Barrel removal thus requires a MAPP-Oxygen torch be used to heat the receiver red hot, right at the rear of the barrel. Use...

Re: my plan... ok make fun of me

Keep the P22 if you can... and take her to the range to try out as many different pistols as you can. It would be ideal if you both ended up with the same platform, but not essential. Her comfort and confidence are more important. A shotgun is a valuable asset in many situations, so it is good to ha...

Re: .22 Handgun for survival

I'm a big Ruger fan, but there is an advantage of the Browning in that the barrels are removeable, whereas the Ruger barrel is integral to the receiver. If you want to change barrel lengths or have it threaded, it is much easier to do with the Buckmark. Both are equally accurate and reliable, IMHO a...

Re: Thinking about a pistol caliber carbine...

New guy here... googling the Sterling was actually how I found this coolest of forums, via this very thread, actually... so I'll put my +1 in for both the Ruger PC9 and the Sterling, since I have both. The Ruger is a rock solid, reliable little Carbine, and the Sterling gets major points for just pl...
