Shameless plug: anybody in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area should check out 88 Tactical. They have a great facility for shooting and rentals. They have a lot of tactical weapons/medicine/unarmed training there. I've taken classes at their Tekamah, NE facility, learning rifles, pistols, and bushcraft. They have been really good to train with and I finally got to shoot at their Omaha facility. It was really nice. The staff were really top notch.


And I got to shoot with my dad for the first time in 20 years! That was awesome. I've talked to you all about what pistol he should get for taming the local ground hog and raccoon populations. Well I think he is now decided on a Glock 17 :awesome: I am really excited for him and we will work on those shooting fundamentals this Christmas. :clap:

This was a good night.

I have a G19 & I am happy with it. A G17/G19 is what FerFAL recommends as one's first pistol. Both are good choices. 9mm is a very common round.

Might make more sense in California, New York, or Canada.

My first defensive handgun was an RIA 1911 in .45 ACP. It was rough around the edges, but it served me well as my nightstand gun for a few years until I got my G21 and G41.

My first pistol was going to be a 9mm, but I already had a lot of .45 ACP ammo, so I went with one in that caliber instead.

Where's the best place to buy milsurp and curio & relic guns these days? Seems like the supplies have finally run out.

That's kind of cool. Reminds me of those Sidewinder conversion kits for Mossberg shotguns.

Not sure how I feel about mag-fed shotties.... :ooh:

But I'm sure Remington will sell more than a few.

Speaking of Remington pumpguns, the Nighthawk Custom 870 pump-action "firearm" only has an MSRP of $1400. :awesome:

Other than the Nighthawk name on the 'firearm', what does this thing do better than the Mossberg Shockwave and Remington Tac-14 (both of which are on my wishlist) ?

And if I'm dropping $1,400 on a shotgun, I want one of those VEPR shotguns or maybe one of those Kel-Tec KSG 25's.

Also, how long do y'all think it'll be before Remington offers the 870 DM as a conversion kit for standard 870's ?

Probably around the 12th of Never. The receiver has to be made to accommodate the magazine with a mag well. Not something that could be done with a kit.

That's a good point.

Looks like I'm adding the 870 DM to my wishlist. I'll wait to pick one up until they've been out for awhile. I'd rather not buy a new gun and then have to send it back to the manufacturer a few weeks later because something went bad in QC.

They're introducing a new potential source of unreliability - the magazine (mag issues causes more failures in autoloading guns than anything else) - in order to make for faster reloading, at least as long as you have loaded mags with the kind of ammo you want.

But why introduce potential unreliability into a weapon whose primary selling point is reliability.

Why? To make money by selling them of course. And people will buy them. Police departments will buy them. The military may even buy them. The 870 has decent reliability and while mags might make for some magazine related reliability issues, the ability to swap out ammo types instantly will have a great appeal to the aforementioned groups. Go from lethal to less lethal, or vice-versa, with a quick mag change? Oh yeah, they'll buy it.

U.S. Army Field SIG SAUER M17/M18 Pistols with 101st Airborne Division

https://www.ammoland.com/2017/11/u-s-army-fields-sig-sauer-m17-m18-pistols/#axzz50RVy5Mpw


Today the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) became the first unit to field the U.S. Army’s new M17 and M18 Modular Handgun System. The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st ABN DIV (AASLT) began fielding the new handguns today at Fort Campbell, Kentucky under the command of Col. Derek K. Thomson.

“What a great day,” said Thomson. “To witness modernization firsthand as my soldiers became the first in the Army and this storied division to fire the new pistol is an absolute honor.”

The MHS handgun is a variant of the SIG SAUER P320 pistol and is equipped with an external safety, an integrated MIL-STD-1913 Picatinny rail for the attachment of light and laser systems, self-illuminating night sights to maintain combat effectiveness in all lighting conditions, and is capable of accepting a sound suppressor.
