    Nice encounter! I've seen only two, and both times I was in a vehicle. Had some come down and investigate me and my dog while camping in the woods. Never saw them, but found the sign about an hour after they left. My dog was going nuts sniffing...

    Ordered it via Gunbroker on 14th of May and was finally able to pick it up today. It was worth the wait. Absolutely floored by the fit and finish. Slide to frame fit is superb and the slide racks like it's on ball bearings. Exceeded my...

    Bought a new holster for the P365. De Santis leather OWB that is super comfy and very good quality for under $50. Today I grabbed the P365 and an IWB leather holster and slipped it inside my pants. I put on a bit of winter weight apparently...

    Maybe. I'm pretty sure it will come out of next year's tax return. I usually get between $1200 and $1800 back due to being single and making just under $50k a year. I suspect next year, I will get little to no tax return, and those that have to...

    The big thing NOT to do is to set the posts in concrete with the bottoms encased. You can use concrete to stabilize them, but make sure they are set at the correct height BEFORE pouring in the concrete. The reason is because you want the bottom...

    I think the person that advocated firing a revolver from his shorts pocket and stated that a pistol couldn't be fired in the same manner should have to prove what he stated.

    I've only seen it in the movies. Seems to me that if you had enough room in your pocket to rotate a revolver upwards towards an attacker, then you have plenty of room for a slide to function, since it rotates rearward along the same plane as your...

    I like Glocks and they fit me well, but I sure wouldn't put up with a pistol that not only didn't fit right, but caused physical injury. I believe the only pistol that I was injured from shooting was my 1911 in the Navy due to slide bite.

    I wouldn't buy anything made by or associated with Polaris. They are the Fiat-Chrysler of the motorsports world. Just garbage. I thought I got a great deal on a used Polaris Sportsman 500 ATV that a neighbor got from his elderly father. 1000...

    I bought a Glock 22 back in the late 90's and it was fine, but wasn't happy with the accuracy, so traded it in on a Glock 24C. Was very happy with the accuracy with that, but it was just too big. Traded that in on a Glock 31, the .357 Sig version...

    Oh, and the sporting goods manager asked me if I found everything I was looking for and I said no. Only two types of .40 S&W. He said during the pandemic, they were completely wiped out of .40 S&W and they can't get any more in. Thank God I...

    Since Walmart stopped selling pistol ammo, that left one sporting goods store in the area that sold ammo. And they are pricey. I bought a 1911 in .40 S&W and decided to buy a few boxes of .40 S&W to try in it. Didn't want to dip into my stash,...

    I was born in the winter of `68 in Moscow. My mom had to be taken to the hospital via snowmobile since my folks lived in a country home. I don't think there's been a winter that bad around here since.

    Good tips! Yeah, when I would work up a box of 50 .40 S&W or 10mm rounds for a match, it typically took me about 2 hours with my single-stage and attention to detail. When I switched to 9mm, I just stopped by Walmart and picked up a box of...
