Twelve, (12) more new or like new Italian factory Browning High Power spring assist 13 rd mags. A Lulu mag loader. Neat gadget. Another one thousand (1000) rounds of S&B NATO FMJ 9mm training ammo.

Does anybody have a specific recommendation on the very best 9mm carry ammo? Cost not important. Performance important. Anybody know where one can get a recommended spare parts kit for the BHP?


The RIP looked interesting, however i will be looking to try out lehigh defense.

 

 

Rip is pure chickenteeth marketing. The company straight up lied in their initial performance figures, claiming contradictory things. Then the actual testing shows exactly what you would expect of a very light projectile that sheds mass instantly: it has crappy penetration. It also has the distinction of being the only "defensive" ammo in 9mm, which routinely jams in glocks.

 

 

Thanks GunFun,  I'm looking more at lehigh right now.  I have both mine and my wife's 9mm to get some PD and HD rounds for it.(fn9s and xd mod2 service)

I just put a Ruger Charger .22LR on Layaway today. Wood stock with included Harris bipod. (Not the takedown model.)  :)

Some Quality Hardware Company USGI M1 Carbine spring tube spare parts for the spring tube Carbine.  Reasonable.  Amazing that specific USGI parts for that 70+ year old platform are still available.  But then again our nation back then made in total over 5+ million of them.  Just one of many things we did then but would be hard pressed to do today.  Sad.

100 rounds of .40S&W to test out a Sig 226

 

I can't seem to find an EAA Witness in the configuration I want and I saw a CPO P226 in .357sig for a great price, but that sloppy trigger is just too much for me. I'd take the trigger on my M57 any day over that flappy nonsense,

2 boxes of .38 Special to test out a Ruger LCR, not a bad trigger. I'll have to try it with .357 next time.

 

Also that 12 pellet Nobelsport 00 Buck is some hot stuff, its got more boom than Remington sluggers or even Brenneke slugs. It's funny with all the Remington "reduced recoil police loads" to see the Italian Police give exactly 0 fucks. Patterns really nice too, probably the second best pattern I've gotten besides that cheapo shit from Walmart that inexplicably has the most amazingly tight patterns out of my Saiga.

That Walmart cheap shit has a tight pattern because it's barely moving. The velocity on the box is just a pipe dream. Sooner or later you'll stick a wad in the barrel from an undercharge. QC on that crap is nonexistent. Go ahead and keep running it....just make sure your insurance is current.

I just put a Ruger Charger .22LR on Layaway today. Wood stock with included Harris bipod. (Not the takedown model.)  smile.png

 

Just an update... 70-ft. indoor range off the bipod:

Aguila Standard Velocity, 5 rounds in one hole I can put my finger through.

Armscor 36gr. HVHP, 5 rounds I can cover with my thumb.  :)

 

Standard velocity loads hit about 2" below point of aim, high velocity loads hit about 1" below point of aim.  :up:

I ran 6 different brands of .22 LR through it, not one hiccup of any kind.

Huh, guess it's good I only found it in stock once. My insurance pays me to get a physical each year with a Walmart gift card which is why I bought some last year. Guess now I'll put that money towards Remington Hypersonic Steel for hunting instead.
