I think they look great, would love for all the services to get such a uniform. Instead we get blue berry camo in the Navy :/

Re: Dental Care

I would ask the dentist about the pain, I have had several root canals and never needed pain meds much less Vicodin. Maybe something went wrong?

Re: Worst SHTF Handgun

RG-14. Those things are overpriced at free. I think 1911's are fine. I mean, I would not take one over my Glock, and have seen and fired some really bad ones, but my Sig TacOps eats everything I feed it and makes .45 caliber holes all day. Its also the most accurate pistol I own, in my hands, outsid...

Re: EDC torch + Multitool set with belt loop?

Taco holsters hold multi tools and lights really well. Two pouches in black would not look weird on most belts in public, and would work very well.

Re: Slide release vs overhand rack WITH A HUGE SLIDE RELEASE

I am guilty of using the slide release a lot in the range and practice, but my training has always told me to rack it, because its quick and hard to mess up, gross motor skills and all. Some guns have easier slide releases than others. Some slide releases seem like you need a TON of thumb strength t...

Re: Talk me out of a revolver

I love Ruger Revolvers.

The SP101 (I have 3 variants right now) and the GP100 are both awesome guns.

A smaller revolver appendix carried is super concealable and easy to wear in anything.

I think small revolvers make fine concealed carry guns.

Re: NO body armour for me

My thoughts, The more you carry of something means the less you carry of another item. Is body armor worth the extra weight as compared to other items that could be carried instead? My first thoughts is no. It depends on the likely hood of need VS the other things I could be carrying. Why do you ca...

Re: NO body armour for me

I wear IIIA soft body armor, it's not that bad. It's not nearly as heavy as you'd think (about five pounds) and if properly fitted, doesn't restrict movement a whole lot. Beats the hell out of being perforated with 9mm bullets. It is expensive, and the idea of wearing used seems.... Gross. (Trust m...

Re: Marines Get to Pick Glocks in Preference to to 1911s.

It makes sense. Glocks hold up really well, and don't have as many problems as some other pistols do in harsh environments. And they are easy enough to get off-the-shelf parts for. Besides, they are available all over the world at this point. It isn't like they are meant to be a primary arm for the...
