I'm sure this topic has been covered ad nauseum, the topic of bug out bags and firearms. To be clear, I am not assessing a basic get home bag or every day carry bag. I already have these.
I'm trying to figure out what makes sense to pack between my car as a bugout vehicle and an...
I had to laugh when someone posted here about Glocks complaining they didn't update enuf for their taste. What do they think about 1911's then???
The 1911's are heavy, have to keep cocked and locked to be ready, you have to manipulate the hammer, low capacity, poor penetration. In short they...
Forget cool factor, $$ and anything else other that which is better for a self- defense gun in the car.
Would you prefer a (semi-auto) SP5 HK or a Glock 9mm w 33 round mag?
Comparison is for guns as pictured other than optional sights to your preference.
I only tell this embarrassing tale to educate and gain insight. This is hard for me to admit.
Went to the range today. I always go alone. Always. Today, I invited a friend from work to try out some of my firearms. We were shooting a variety of calibers and different platforms. We were...
Glock G45 is about to hit the streets and I was wondering what people thought of it?
Despite the name, the G45 is chambered in 9mm. It is like a civilian version of the 19X G17 frame, G19 barrel length.
For those of you who have read my post over the years, yall know I am not glock fanboy...
Local pawn shop has a Ruger P89 for sale for a little over $300.
Pass or buy?
Why Buy? Because the P89 is a mostly forgotten piece of handgun history. During the late 1980s and through the 1990s Ruger made some excellent P series handguns. I had a P90 in 45acp, and a P91 in 40 S&w.
What is the best pistol for both urban carry and for use while hiking, fishing and hunting as a defense against bears? I was thinking either a glock 37 or a .357 magnum, but the .357 is kind of big for urban carry.
Thanks for your opinions.
Sootch00 posted an outstanding video of the new Glock 19X.
Why can't Glock release an exact copy of the version submitted for the XM17 trials? The tests version had a manual safety, the 19X does not.
Even without the safety, I am considering buying another Glock 19. I have a Gen 4 Glock 19...
So I'm heading in today after work to see about buying a g43. But i had a thought about Glock's recent release of the Gen 5 19 and 17, if they are going to be updating other models soon. I think having the beveled front on a 43 would be nice and if the new slide finish holds up better that would...
I bought my Beretta 92f in 1989. By that time Glock was well on its way to establishing itself as a dominating force.
Why did it take Beretta so long to make the APX?
Second question, why doesn't the APX use 92f magazines?
In all honesty, this seems like an epic fail on the part of Beretta...
I have just received my Pistol and Rifle competency back which was a four month process. I now need to apply for my licences which will take another four months and hopefully it will be successful as South African authorities are trying to disarm all citizens.
I already own a 7+1...
Something that caught my eye the other day on youtube, the topic was the new Sig 320 being adopted. Someone said the military needed to get rid of the outdated Beretta design and go with something more modern.
Then the person said something along the lines of "modern like a glock." Or...
I am in need of a Glock 19 thigh holster.
Tactical cool need not apply. I want something that I can work around the farm with.
Awhile back a buddy of mine showed me his Glock holster. He told me how it can only be drawn from a certain direction and has a lock. I do not care about any of...
In 1982 when Glock hit the streets it was thrown to the forefront of the gun control battle by having a polymer frame. The anti-gun leftist claimed a Glock would slip past airport metal detectors. The anti-gun media did one thing, they gave Glock all the free advertising the company could...
Let the flame war begin. Regular forum rules do not apply to this thread. Feel free to speak your opinion.
The main reason why I do not like a glock is because it lacks basic safety features found on handguns for over 100 years. Not only firearms, but all other consumer products.
Probably jumping on the glock bandwagon next month (February 2017).
I want a work holster for a Glock 19. Something I can run a chainsaw wearing, work on the tractor, split wood, pull up fence.. etc.
Practical over tactical.
If you feel like it, also recommend a CCW holster for the Glock 19.
I originally found this site in a search years ago. You were discussing a Plate Carrier I also had. Yours was setup way differently than all of mine.
After finding the lost link to the site and password. I thought some of you would be interested in which Plate Carrier has become my main focus...
My edc is a Glock 17 ,love the glocks had a 21 for awhile. My son carries a Rock Island 1911
It gives no problems and is accurate.
So I don't dislike 1911s I just like the glock 17 and the capacity
But every time I turn around there is someone talking about knock down power.
Had one guy...
