DX is...uh...the new XD. Yeah, it...okay, I fat fingered it. I type very fast and sometimes one finger gets ahead of the other one.

Up close the stock of a Garand will crush a skull. Practice it.

While I prefer smaller rifles, (ala Bullpups), I have to admit the M1 Garand is probably the best all around rifle out there. And the 30.06 is a great round! Good choice! Niow you just need to spend the same amount you spent on the gun for a scope! :shock:

New Gun

Well, I just sold my Taurus 661 .357mag revolver to a coworker and I now have enough to go pick up my new gun today. I'm picking up a matching S&W 627 5" Performance Center .357 mag. I love this gun! The most accurate I have ever shot. I have been practicing 2 gun shooting for a while now, including...

I currently rent a house in the city and will be able to afford to buy a new nicer house in a few months. I'm looking at all brick construction and maybe a little more rural than where I currently live. An all brick fence would be expensive and most home associations won't let you put them up in my ...

Personally, I would choose the DX over the Glock. But, I am not a Glock fan. It sounds like you are and have become very profcient with it. I say, stick with what you are good at.

Chris Reeves stuff is great...though pricey. I totally recommend the CS Bushman. It is sharp, tough as nails, and only $25 Bucks. It has a retention hole that can allow it to be made into a spear, and has served me very well in the many years I have had it.

The thing I like best about the missionready style sling is that you can wear it like a normal close to the back sling in the ready hip level position, or the full stock, ready to shoot position. Works well. That being said, I have a regular ammo holding sling that ties up to a stock. I put it on, t...

I would recommend a 3 point sling. I use the MissionReady sling and it will connect without using any hardware. I use it on both my full stock shotgun as well as my pistol grip shotgun.

I went with the Subaru WRX. Fast, gas efficient, tough as nails, all wheel drive and comfortably sits 4, 5 if you want to squeeze people in the back. Mine currently holds my BOB as well a host of other things.

I personally don't like Taurus, I have seen too many mess up, specifically the millinium model. I have 2 close friends that picked them up new because of the price and their size.

Mike, I honestly don't care what gun people like. As far as I am concerned, people should carry whatever they feel best with. That being said, Glocks are touted by too many people out there, when there are much better alternatives. Now, I shoot a lot. And I will always recommend a revolver over an a...

You deal with a zombie attack the same way you deal with any other stressful situation. The best you can. Either you are mentally prepared for it, or you aren't. The same goes for dealing with it once it happens. You have to focus on what you are doing, stay positive, and don't let the impossibility...

Handcuffs are a bit of a pain. I get one-way wire ties. They weigh almost nothing and have lots of uses other than handcuffing. Plus they are cheap!

I have an 8 year old daughter and the only thing I have instilled in her, is that is she ever sees a gun, she leaves it alone and comes and tells me. She currently has no interest what so ever in guns...or fighting, or knives...thank the gods I got her into comic books early! Be safe around your kid...

Everyone should have a non-gun backup weapon. A crowbar works great, just sharpen the last inch of the right angled end first. Currently, I carry a Junglee short sword. It's tough as nails, light, and doubles as a machete. And unlike someone carrying a sword, I don't get funny looks from cops when I...

In Virginia, you drive to the gunstore, pick out a gun, hand them your license, wait 5 minutes for the background check...and your pizza is still hot in the car. Ah, I love being in a hunting state.
