  1. CPF, If you do nothing but concentrate on maintaining your sight picture while slowly squeezing the trigger your brain shouldn't have a chance to anticipate recoil. The theory is that if you focus entirely on these two tasks the shot will come off as a surprise. My personal experience is that it is a sound theory. Hope that helps.
  2. And I just want to be clear I wasn't denigrating your products. From what I've seen you have good stuff and do good work.
  3. Sorry Mike, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree on this point. The ability to "short stock" a long gun in close quarters is very much a real world performance issue. Lunker, I live in NJ and I leave my S-12 stock. I'm going to add a gas plug that doesn't require tools to switch settings though.
  4. Will runs a business, actually produces goods that people are willing to pay for, manages to land a show, and that's not good enough to be worthy of some respect? If that's the case I'd be more than happy to hear about your specific successes in life that surpass that.

    Sons of Red Jacket observations....

    Yes. It works the same way on an M203. The master key was a neat looking project and I'm glad it was profitable for Will. But the answer for the original problem was a training one...make the breacher the last man in the stack to go in. The guy who has to worry about two different triggers, two different safeties, two different barrels, should not be the lead man in. Just my two cents though.
  6. Thanks for the nice writeup and the pics.

    Arcus 98 DAC or Zastava EZ9 ?? which one.??

    I bought the Arcus 98 DA (full size) some time back. I also have been able to mod a Beretta 92 mag to fit and function in it although the slide doesn't lock to the rear when empty. Initially, I thought I would be able to use the standard HiPower 15 round mags for it. They don't work because they are too short. The mag length is the 17 round length but the follower it uses limits the capacity to 15 (this is how Arcus manufactures them). This wouldn't be an issue for anyone that doesn't live in a mag limit state because they can just use the HiPower 17 round mags for it. The finish leaves something to be desired on the weapon but it functions flawlessly. I actually like the heft of this thing. But if I had to do it again I would have gotten the compact (98 DAC) for the mag options. What I like about the Arcus is it's basically a HiPower with the mag safety already removed. I have no problem with using the trigger to lower the hammer. Even when using a de-cocker like on the Beretta I still ride the hammer down with my thumb.
  8. Which may explain why you don't get good groups with irons. You don't need to "see" your target, you only need to see your front sight post. Specifically, I focus on the middle of the front sight post, as if there was a hairline right smack dead center of it. I concentrate on this and more or less get it centered on a blurry background that is my target. Shooters that have had problems getting good groups with irons usually take their concentration away from the front sight post and look downrange at the target at some point before the shot releases. A lot were doing it without even knowing it. One way to test this is to try and remember what the exact image was during the muzzle flash. If the tip of the front sight post wasn't the last thing you remember seeing clearly, chances are that you took your concentration off it. Another method is to look at your groups. If they are all around the center, you were looking at the target. If they are strung out vertically, you have a breathing issue. Next time you are out with your scope, try to focus specifically on the reticle, meaning your target should be a little blurry. See if that tightens up your scope groups. If it does, I bet you can shoot just fine with irons, regardless of the distance. Anyway irons are an essential piece of gear on the weapon in my opinion.
  9. Not to mention their galleys are awesome! After living off winter rats for a few weeks in Norway eating in an LST galley was like heaven...until we hit open water. The chow wasn't as good the second time around.
  10. Thanks for posting this. I didn't even know this product was coming out.
  11. A belated Happy Birthday!!

    Home Defense

    If you're only going to have one weapon I'm going to throw in another vote for getting a handgun. A revolver is the simplest one to operate in the event that your wife has to use it. If you have kids, you're going to need to take extra precautions as far as storage is concerned. No one weapon is going to be ideal for all situations. You need to be proficient enough to make do with what you've got. Best of luck to you.
  13. Because when I'm feeling stabby I don't reach for a gun... But seriously once you've held a well made hand forged knife (the practical ones at least) it's hard to go back to your factory made Kabar or Kershaw folder. The fantasy blades are ridiculous I agree but to each his own.
