      Have you seen Colion Noir make fun of competition shooters .40cal?

      In the world of competition, 40S&W is a USPSA "major" round, so has the more favorable "major" power factor scoring (unlike 9mm, which scores "minor".)

      Will all states be required to issue non-resident permits?

      Keep in mind, 25 of the 50 states are already Constitutional carry. I moved to New Hampshire, which is Constitutional carry, as is neighboring states Vermont and Maine. The only state that isn't is Massachusetts, and they are issuing non-resident permits, now. I just mailed in my application...

      "Sensitive" places restrictions on wear and carry currently that should not be.

      When they're dragged back in to court, kicking and screaming. Make no mistake: frosh will not take this defeat quietly. I won't be surprised if more restrictive laws are on there way.

      ♠ RimFire PoRn ♠

      I haven't been around in a while. I thought I'd share my most recent 22LR purchases. A left-handed 10/22 with a U.S. Optics 1.8-10x and a Bergara 14r with a Trigger Tech Diamond trigger and Vortex Strike Eagle 5-25x56mm

      Long Distance Range

      Is Quantico still doing their monthly F Class matches? That's a good opportunity to shoot at 800, 900, and 1000 yards.

      Backpack Precision Rimfire Build Ideas

      The Bergaras are designed to accept all Remington 700 pattern rifles, so all accessories (stocks, triggers, scope bases, etc.) fit the B14R. Here's my new lefty. I have a Trigger Tech Diamond trigger on it's way to replace the factory trigger. The base is a 30MoA Badger Ordnance with Seekins...

      Henry AR-7 Survival Rifle

      I've had my eye on one for a while; I'm just waiting for them to offer a threaded barrel version, then I'll jump.

      Too Good to Pass Up

      That was my first thought- why not gunbroker? Probably just didn't want to mess with it. I was a little surprised that someone else didn't buy it to put on GB to make a few hundred on it. Oh well, my win. I'll take it.

      Too Good to Pass Up

      Thanks, I'm really happy with it. It's my new turkey and general purpose shotgun. I've already ordered a +6 Nordic Components extension (flush to the end of the barrel) and an over-sized titanium handle for it.

      Too Good to Pass Up

      I was at my LGS on Saturday. I frequent the place, so wasn't surprised when I saw the same shotgun I've been drooling over for the last two years: a left-handed Benelli Super Black Eagle II with a 24" barrel. The 24" lefties are kind of rare, as they weren't big sellers. He marked it down to...

      Finest pocket knife I've ever owned. Part of my daily carry...
    14. BenL


      I used to be a "never plastic, never striker-fired guy". Then I started carrying every day. Don't get me wrong: I still think 1911s are the best shooting guns out there (triggers are hard to beat), but I'd rather have 22 rounds of "light weight, accurate, & pretty good trigger" over 8 rounds...

      I love that... er... support brace. I have yet to find one better.
