    I have said it in other posts but thought I would make a whole thread to tell everyone. I bought new a Springfield XDM 10mm. After about 50 rounds of hornady critical defense (factory ammo) I had an odd round that made my whole hand sting. I knew something wasn’t right. I field stripped and...

    So I love the Scout Squad but am enamored by the older Bush Rifle. They are hard to come by in my area but I have found one nearby for $1800. It comes with the Choate folding stock, a sling, 5 mags, box, papers, and scope mount. It looks to be in good condition and I recently bought an OD...

    Finally received my new leather holster for my XD9 by Savoy Leather. Took about 14 weeks from when I ordered it to when I received it. It is all American made, with al American materials. Until recently, it was just him and his wife hand making these holsters. I think he has hired a few new...

    My Dad and I were at Scheels a few weeks ago and we were looking at pistols. I have been thinking about the first semi-auto pistol I want to get. I really love the Glock's, Sig Sauer's, and Springfield XD'S. The main issue I have with Sig is the price, so when my Dad the showed me the SP2022 I...

    So recently I bought a sporter arisaka, because i needed i thought i needed to for class (gunsmithing college) and I took it shooting, I was surpirsed at its accuract and how much fun it was to shoot. Unfortunately the 7.7 Jap round is rare and expensive especially if you don't reload. So i went...

    I am tempted to trade my WASR (+1 magazine) for a Springfield 1911 (+1 magazine) and some extra cash. I paid $475 for the WASR and I know Springfields already run at about ~800, right? The only things holding me back: 1) the WASR will only go up in price if the AWB goes into place, though I...

    That should be about the best "keyword" embedded title ever... well at least in this case haha. I searched, so if this subject has come up in either the XD thread or somewhere else, feel free to merge. I have as the title suggests. My issue is not with the quality of the holster (love it) but...

    I just got a brand spanking new Springfield Range Officer, the gun i have been lusting after for quite some time. I love it; but maybe just a little too much.... I shoot it, i CC it, but I'm having a hard time convincing myself to take out tracking and hog hunting. I've thought about getting a...

    Looking for a bit of experience based advice... I have 5 mags for my XD .45 and have a question about them. I have one mag, when filled with 15 rounds, sounds as though a round isn't seated right inside, it rattles when you shake the mag. I've taken the mag apart and inspected it thoroughly...

    I have one of the Springfield M6 scout guns. Not the Made in USA, but the CZ one, as I just want it as a beater / survival gun and not for collector value. Problem I have is that the darn thing rusts at a harsh word. So I know its like a sin, but I sanded it down carefully and painted it with...

    Hello, I am looking to add a 1911 to my collection and would like your opinions. I am looking for something affordable and most important dependable. My range is up to $900 but less would be better. Your ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

    I'm ready to take a break from the heathen polymer and get some American steel. :o: The first thing I noticed when looking at different 1911s is the price difference between brands. Anywhere from $500 for a Springfield or Rock Island to $2000 for a Colt or Wilson Combat. Now that I've got the...
