Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

I posted this link to ammunition testing by lucky gunner in a previous thread. It is one of the best such gel test I have seen. I am not saying it the ne plus ultra all questions answered test but is a very consistent set of tests on a wide variety of ammo in .380, 9x19, .40 S&W, .45 ACP here: https...

Re: Looking for reviews of compact binoculars?

Ah Ok. I bought a pair of these for under $100 same maker albeit with a porro prism. I went with the 6x since I wanted more light gathering due to dense growth and for the same reason I rarely use them to look past 100 yards; so 6x is fine for me. They make a 8x & a 10X. https://www.amazon.com/Leupo...

Re: CR123 Batteries

Are you in the US? In the case of Surefire batteries, why not simply order direct from them? https://www.surefire.com/batteries.html If you also search for authorized dealers, you might find one local to you that you can go to and maybe save a couple dollars. While genuine, at $8 per battery does n...

Re: The Return Of The Ruger Police Carbine; The PC9

Been thinking about this rifle a lot lately as a fun range, smallish game hunting, defense, bug-out, truck gun. I'm really thinking of something it can't do in some form or another at least half decently... besides shoot 200 yards and up accurately. Hunting moose. -Underwood Xtreme Penetrator +P+++...

$475? You can buy a chainsaw for that price. Still good quality is not cheap.

So what brand of cr 123 rechargeables work for everyone? I use eneloop for AA rechargeables for my game cameras. These seem to work ok but they see a lot of use and not much standby.

Re: CR123 Batteries

This is a timely topic. I use the Energizer brand cr-123 due to all the counterfeiting of the batteries. They are damned expensive especially since these days AA lights can put out similar or better lumens. I bought mine from Amazon but as noted fakes abound. I have only a few lights and layers that...

Wait, Southern Ohio Guns is still around ?

I thought they went out of business a few years back.
They are still around but my FFL hates them and will not buy from them. He said he had some issues with them. Caveat emptor. My one purchase went without a hitch.

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

The S&W 64 I bought was $289. The bobbed hammer ones were about $30 cheaper. My purchase was quite satisfactory. The Beretta 92s offered here are not as nice as others elsewhere but these are about $30 to $40 cheaper so I would expect more wear. I also bought a 92s from Aimsurplus. Mine was great. I...

I am not an attorney so the following is just my opinion. Under federal law it is legal for a person to manufacture a firearm for personal own use assuming it is not "transferred". Note I have read that there is some debate over sold vs. transfer so that is why I used the term transferred. There may...
