  1. I was looking for a good, small carry pistol for deep concealment and hot summertime carry. Picked up a Taurus Spectrum .380, just got it out to the range today. It shoots well for it's size, I like it! Recoil is easy to manage with this one due to the shape and very low centerline of the barrel over the hand. I did have some light primer strikes in the first 50 rounds with Blazer and PMC Bronze ammo, but with the Taurus just pull the trigger again and they fired the second time. (Second-Strike capable) Otherwise, function was flawless. Accuracy very good for me, too. I have hand tremors, and the long, smooth pull seems to help me keep it on-target. I ran 10 rounds of Hornady Critical Defense ammo through it (5 in each mag.)- they ran GREAT! Very accurate with no problems at all! After I get more rounds through it for break-in, and to verify no more light-strikes, I think this will be a great carry gun for what I was looking for.
  2. Sounds like Baltimore is making a run at Shitcago for "Murder Capitol of the US." Another Liberal bastion flushing itself down the drain.
  3. And "Drunk Uncle Joe" is back in the running, again. It would be a dark day for the 2nd Amendment if he gets near the White House again. He doesn't know crap about firearms, even more so than some of the other liberal whackos.
  4. For the record, PA (like NY and a few others) is NOT a "Blue" state. It's a Red state that has to suffer through all the crap forced upon them by the Blue hordes in a few big cities in that state. I know many people from NY who would be ecstatic if they could just wall off everything east of I-295 so they could live a good life in the real world. Everyone I grew up with in PA, just east of Pittsburgh, is most definitely Republican.
  5. Now that they're "officially" legal in Ohio, I picked up a Mossberg 590 Shockwave in .410. Bought a few boxes of ammo, too, and even found a box of #4 shot! Now I just need a place to shoot it... Getting tough around here to do patterning and target shooting with a shotgun. Just a few clays-ranges around here. I can shoot slugs at the indoor ranges, at least.
  6. Some of the smarter guys will have to chime in, but I don't think the manufacturer has the customer lists, that would be the retailers. They're not required to keep lists of accessories, just the firearm serial numbers. There is no "list" that I know of. I still think this issue will wind up in the courts, and when the do deem this silliness as Unconstitutional, then you won't feel so good about cutting it up.
  7. A. Delete this thread. B. Hide it up in the attic or somewhere until this nonsense gets straightened out. I suspect this will wind up in court before too long...

    Reliable gunsmith to finish SBS?

    The reply I tagged you in was for @Bigshow, who posted on Sunday. I don't know if he's tried to contact you yet...

    Bigshow- Check out the link included earlier. He has had trouble with his email system(s) in the past, but I think he has it straightened out now? @evlblkwpnz
  10. If the Demo's can do it for illegal aliens, no reason we can't do it for LEGAL reasons! https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-guns-sanctuary/defiant-u-s-sheriffs-push-gun-sanctuaries-imitating-liberals-on-immigration-idUSKCN1QL0ZC?feedType=RSS&feedName=topNews&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+reuters%2FtopNews+(News+%2F+US+%2F+Top+News)
  11. I have a .45ACP 24/7 Long Slide. The lawsuit-recall for mine is for a possible defect for the safety, nothing about "shake-fire" issues. I used snap-caps and tested mine every-which-way I could and it works as it's supposed to. Love the gun, keeping it.

    SCCY- Anyone have one?

    Technically that would be illegal around here, too, but just about every Police Officer around here has done the same thing for a whitetail by the road, so I doubt any of them would actually ticket someone for that. Just be sure to contact the Game Warden promptly, so you can harvest the meat.
  13. It's been awfully quiet lately... News is all focused on other BS. What's going on, or not, down south?

    NFA Engraving.

    Hi All, I have a Kriss Vector SDP and I have my completed Form 1 for it... Any recommendations on where/how to get it engraved? I've checked with my local gunstores, and the one contact one of them had does not have their engraving machine set up in their new shop, after the old one burned down last year. I can't find anyone else yet... What is the consensus to engraving on the polymer? Some folks say that's okay, others say a slot must be cut so it can be engraved on the metal frame underneath. I've also read that it doesn't even need engraved, so long as I'm not trying to sell it. (Which I'm not.) Confustications!

    NFA Engraving.

    I've been told you should leave the original at home in a safe place, and carry a copy with you. Maybe not a "requirement" but makes life easier if anyone should ask. I haven't had mine out as much as I'd like, but haven't been asked so far...

    Gun Safes Review / Q&A

    Don't you have a backup key to open the safe? I don't have a Cannon, but other electronic safes I've seen all have a key for a backup.
  22. Where were they located that they had to leave?
  23. 1888 is long past, so we should be okay prohibiting these people.
