Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

IDK if it's anticipation or just a last-second jerk of the trigger, but it's always low-left, and I can watch myself pull it off target when I dry-fire. I just don't have the time and practice behind Glocks that I should. Rifles and shotguns are more fun, and rimfire. I need to sell off a few more ...

Re: 9mm handgun / submachine gun designed to be suppressed

There are quite a few pistols and submachine guns designed to be suppressed, but not many that I am aware of that are (commonly) available on the U.S. civilian market. For submachine guns, the MP5SD would be the gold standard, but you'd have to do some digging and have a lot of cash to find a transf...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Glock 23 is 'combat accurate' but I couldn't pass a qual with it. Need to double down on the dry-fire. Out of curiosity, what are you having trouble with? I carried a G23 as a duty gun for a while, and I had more issues with anticipating recoil out of that particular gun than most others. Probably ...

I'm pretty sure they are mistaken on the 49 sates claim. I think this would probably qualify as a felony "infernal device" in Massachusetts for example. Maybe, maybe not. The definition is vague and the case law is mixed. http://politechbot.com/docs/massachusetts.infernal.machine.cases.020107.txt I...

there are 9 of them each at .33." The amount of actual hole (surface area) that this would make is 0.77 square inches. (An expanded 9mm bullet is less than half of that.) #4 has 1.22 square inches of surface area. (My favored 20 gauge buckshot has 0.98 square inches.) I think you're a little off on...

Re: Pump Shotgun vs pistol for Home Defense

Yes, you're referring to cut shells, they're a neat-o little trick. They also won't cycle in most pumps or semiautomatics, and can raise pressure to dangerous levels. Also, due to physics, compressing a mass of small shot does not make it "basically a single unit". It may cause slightly greater pen...

Advantage of #9, is penetration. At very close range the blast is the same. #9 will not penetrate that many sheets of fry wall. Sort of the frangible shot gun round.

Won my GunBroker auction for a Smith and Wesson 2214 .22 LR. With an EWK Arms adapter (http://www.ewkarms.com/zen8/index.php?m ... ducts_id=7) it should make a perfect suppressor host. I'm pretty sure the suppressor will be an AAC Element 2, haven't ordered it yet.

+1 on dry fire drills. That has done a LOT for me. I was also recently reminded that "perfect' practice makes perfect." Go slow and make sure every movement is done perfectly, then gradually work up speed. "Train till you cannot fail..." and all that too. I need to do some more dry fire drills now....
