    I've been thinking about finding a better CC piece. My XDM is good in the winter because its easily concealable with a jacket but it prints pretty bad in just a tshirt. I was thinking about the S + W bodyguard but I'm still not sure after hearing about some of the problems with them.

  6. This is the group for the .45HK at 25 yards. Top group is te size of a half dollar, that's pretty good fo a .45 at that distance I think.

    What do you guys/gals think?

    I saw that earlier and couldn't be happier for you guys in Illinois! A big win all around for both the citizens and the 2nd amendment. I say you celebrate with buying a new firearm, haha!

    Sorry to hear bro. Just because of the high capacity mags? or is there another reason I'm unaware of? Right on the case of mine it says "These high capacity magazines are not legal in California."

  12. im not really sure why....

    as soon as i saw it i wanted it. i really like my XD but after mine went missing i didnt want to get the old XD when there was somethin new out. besides the HK USP was the first gun i looked at and said "i want that"..... and not 9 years later i have a expert. so all in all im happy.

  13. always wanted one of these too bad I definitely can't afford one. If I could I'd call it my anti-atf gun.

  15. Just to give you guys a heads-up, I got a Foxx Trapp holster (foxxholsters.com) and the fit, function and feel are amazing! I have been using a Crossbreed-style for CC in the past and I'm sold on this new design. Great retention, quick draw and comfortable.

    I'd absolutely love one of those. Can't see myself owning one anytime soon.

    I'm seriously considering dropping the bones for an FN FS2000, but I've never shot a Bullop-style gun. I hear some very mixed opinions on them.

    Crossbows are fun, but I never got real into them. I'd opt for a synthetic or light-metal stock. You're much less to care if it gets a little banged up. At least that's how I feel about synthetic vs. wood stock rifles.

    Ahh, the good ol' "pig." Great machine gun, but got its nickname because it didn't like to get dirty; or it would often jam. The M60 was largely modeled off the German MG42 (which is still the most badazz machine gun ever built.) The MG42 (or the milled version MG34) was so far ahead of its time in so many ways. Even to this day, it's still an amazing piece of gun engineering. They purposely keep the prices of any select fire gun insane to discourage people from buying them; even though can you legally can with a class 3 license and tax stamp. You could also just get a "trust" to obtain a class 3 weapon or silencer which is a hell of a lot easier, but has limitations; especially when traveling.

    I just bought a crossbow myself this year to play around with (Barnett Jackal.) I haven't had a chance to shoot it too much yet, but I can really see myself getting into bow hunting more in the near future.

    Something with a nice 150lb pull and a synthetic stock should work well. The synthetic stock also won't be affected by weather and temperature changes like wood is susceptible to. Having said that though, I still much prefer a wood stock on my rifles.

    Bullpup weapons are one of those designs you either love or hate. I shot a Steyr AUG earlier this year and it was definitely fun, but it just seems really qwirky to me. I can definitely see the combat applications that it was designed for (CQB type stuff), but I don't see any full scale change to this type of weapon system.

    You may absolutely love it though once you try it out; my buddy does. Either way though, the FN FS2000 is a nice looking weapon. I really want to get a KRISS Vector K10.

    I just love the smaller weapons (not smaller caliber). I don't know if it's because of my smaller frame, but I've always been attracted to "compact" tactical weaponry. I was never the dude that grabbed the biggest knife in the case. Something about the maneuverability has always been appealing to me, and the Bullpup fits that design.

    Now, if I were to decide to spend the money on something different, I'd probably end up with a more typical M4 style AR in 308. I have a nice share of handguns; I've been neglecting rifle purchases. Lot's to catch up on.

    Even in video games I tend to go for the ultra-light armored, fast action classes. No clue.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. While I love my AR-15, it's nowhere near my favorite gun to shoot. I much prefer WW2 era guns overall to both collect and shoot. I think it's just my interest in WW2 history and all the nostalgia involved with the weapons.

    I have decided that I'm going to put together and AR-10 style weapon and customize it to how I want it. I'm just gonna buy the lower right now, and then slowly get the parts over time as I find a good deal on them. It should be a fun project. Hopefully I can get myself set-up for reloading next year and pump out some .308. It isn't cheap right now and doesn't look to be anytime soon. The expense to reload is a lot up front, but it should pay out nicely in the end. It would be a fun hobby; especially tweaking your own loads.

    I really want to get a Smith and Wesson "Shield" in .40 cal as an alternate carry option to my Glock 26. I held one the other day and they're really nice; great trigger for a subcompact gun. I typically don't like the .40 cal in a subcompact (recoil is just too snappy), but this little gun is nice for the price. The subcompact gun has really grown on me the last few years and the market is going crazy with them right now. It's good though because many of them really make fantastic carry guns.

    I absolutely love that stuff. I shot an M1 Grand the other day that my brother's friend had. That was cool. With me being southpaw, the mag shot up and hit me in the head

    That sounds like a solid project, and one I've never even considered. How much do you think you could save against a, say, $1500 AR-10 that you bought new?

    As for reloading, I'd really like to do that, and hope to in time. I just don't have the space for it right now. It's a great skill to have, saves lots of money, and if SHTF you're going to be a kingpin. - Right now, I'm just doing my best to stockpile various calibers and protect myself against inflation for years to come.

    Yes, they are pretty snappy, but considering it's a carry gun, it's there to protect you and not for plinking. If you ever had to use it in SD scenario, I think you would lavish in the recoil.

    How do you like carrying the G26? - I have a Kahr CW9 for carry, and it's about 16oz loaded. I don't think I'd like carrying anything over 18oz, but my wife needs a new carry weapon, and I am considering giving her this one and getting myself a CW45.

  25. I just picked up my new gun tonight. I've never had an AK-variant weapon, so I got a converted Saiga AK-variant in 223/5.56. - Also got 4x Bulgarian mags with the deal. Can't wait to hit the range!

    It's nice knowing I have a gun that doesn't require me to unload additional cash to make it enjoyable.

    Thanks!

    I may get a Hogue grip for it, but doubt I'll do much more. I understand that these guns aren't nearly as accurate at long range vs. an M4-style weapon, so why try to make it look like one? Iron sights are fine for me. More gear, more problems.

    If my bank account can handle it next month, and assuming something is available, I'll probably put together a nice, tactical 308 bolt rifle. It's tough being a lefty looking for a bolt gun.

    Left handed guns are around but a lot of them are special order from the dealer. Or you can get lucky and find one at the gun shows. You could always look on Gunbroker.com for one and have it shipped to your FFL dealer.

    Ya, they're out there. - I'll probably end up getting one on GB if I don't see the model I want soon. - Or I can do an AR-10 build, which, considering the political climate may be a better option.
