    You are in a house and are in need of clearing it. Let's say you are not bogged down by much gear. You have a choice, a pistol caliber carbine or a short barreled AR-15 in .223 (with or without a butt stock). I know a pistol is the most tight-area maneuverable gun you could use, but I'd rather...

    Well folks, I'm going to find out. Out of sheer curiosity I recently picked up a ATI 1911 (item code ATIGFX45MIL). Just a plain-Jane 1911 replica. I've been wanting to play with a 1911 platform for awhile and for the price I figured, "what the h#*l." I also figured that I would bring ya'll along...

    Lets say that some kind of SHTF situation happens tonight, how ready is your ammunition stockpile? Whether its nuclear war, plague, disease outbreak, collapse of the dollar,,,, something happens to disrupt society. What kind of ammunition do you have stockpiled to hunt and protect your...

    In the 1980s there were three events that helped influence my opinion on handguns and handgun calibers. #1 – My dad and I were having a discussion on a revolver vs a pistol. Even though a revolver holds fewer rounds then a pistol, my dad liked the revolver over pistol the due to the...

    Went to the fun show today and picked up a G30. I took it to the range and I'm a happy camper. I only shot about 150 rnds but I had no failures :) and accuracy was great. Anybody else own one? What holster are you using? Night sights? Here's my observations so far. PROS- Its Light, very...

    My goal is to have a minimum of two firearms that take the same ammunition. At this point, I have only one .45ACP, (a full size M&P) so my next purchase will be a another pistol of the same caliber. I have no brand loyalty so my choices are many (quality weapons... no Hi-Point etc.), it could...

    I'm looking for a pistol in 9mm, 45 ACP, or 40mm which caliber should I get in which name brand gun, Glock, Springfield XD, or a 1911?
  12. Firearms General Discussion
    I was hanging around the range on an uncharacteristically slow day. I’d just put 250 rounds through a rental Glock 34 because I was thinking about purchasing one. My rationale was that 9mm ammo is cheaper to shoot than my 1911’s .45ACP. As I looked at the pistols the staff were carrying I...
