    your a shooter so im sure youll do fine with it. Most of this kind of bs comes from people who don't shoot. Lots of people with NO experience buy glocks. why? Because there reliable and cheap and very few bad words are said about them. Then when...

    when I first started shooting glocks I had the same trouble as you. Now its just the opposite. Im so used to shooting them that a 1911 doesn't point for me. Its all in what you practice with. Or what you learned with. Ive had cops that shot glocks...

    ive had a couple of them and they have held up fine and seem to have decent optics. Another favorite of mine too is the vx 1x4 leupolds. prices today make buying a fixed power scope not make sense. Variables are just as cheap and because they sell...

    I think you've got it backwards. For those light loads and subsonic loads you want all the gas you can get so a standard wide open gas block (non adjustable) is perfect. Its when you start cranking up the pressures that an adjustable gas block can...

    green pressure treated posts are the way to go. We set HUNDREDS of power poles treated like that and never had a single one rot. Reason is the treatement is a chemical mixed with water pressured into the wood. I wouldn't tar them or encase them in...
