  1. Eh, screw it. Made up my mind. I can't the comp series for my needs. I have my eyes set on the XDM 45 with 4.5" barrel. Still has the "match grade" barrel with it, and that's the one I read reviews on that were so stellar. If I don't like the stock sights, I'll have them swapped out at some point. In the meantime, I'll save over a hundred clams and put it towards an ammo stockpile and more magazines. Regardless, I know I'm still in for a hell of an upgraded firearm!

  2. don't the xd / xdm's come with several sight choices (red / green)? or is that front sight only?

    To my knowledge, only the XDM comp comes with both fibers. Cut and install whichever one you choose. Ultimately, this is what I'd like to get in mine, but in time. Either that or tritium night sights!

    Not yet. I'm meeting the guy at 4:30 today to sell mine. I had one on hold at a gunshop about an hour away and was going to pick it up on Friday. When I called the shop I'm going to tonight (much closer), I inquired about the XDM. They didn't have one in stock, but could get it in 1-2 days and the price was the same as the other shop. So... By tomorrow evening, I will have it as long as this guy tonight doesn't back out on me.

  7. I caved....and bought one.

    This damn C&R license is seriously going to get me in trouble. I also bought (3) of the Chinese Type 54 M44's when AIMSurplus just had them on sale and in stock. A few are project guns.

    I don't know if you guys watch "Iraqveteran8888" on youtube, but I really like his videos. He does a lot of milsurp stuff and gunsmithing/educational vids.

    Yeah, buddy!

    So the Meprolight M21 reflex sight that I sold on ebay this week is looking to be a deadbeat buyer. No response and a zero feedback rating. This reminds me why I hate selling sh*t on ebay; but it's still a great place to buy. The process is freakin' ridiculous before I can relist it. This sucks, because this money is going towards and 59/66 Yugo SKS.

    Well that sucks! I took a look at the auction. Too rich for my blood, but it looked like a nice sight! Sucks that the buyer was deadbeat, though. Hopefully everything goes smoothly with the cancel and relist.

    As I said, sold the Taurus yesterday. The guy who bought it couldn't have been nicer. He has a few of them and is pretty much buying them up for his kids in the future. How nice!! Paid cash, so I handed it right back to the guy at the counter. My 45 is paid for en totale. Now all I have to do is wait for IT TO ARRIVE!!!! AAAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!! Dude said it'd be here by today, and it better be. I can't wait any longer!!!

    Only downside is that I thought the price the guy gave me on the phone was everything out the door. Then at the store, I got charged for the paperwork, tax and whatever. $45 less than what I thought I'd have in my pocket today, which was to go towards ammo so I can shoot this bastard. So, in true TiM fashion, I finished a belt for a guy last night. $50 in my pocket there. Plus delivering a bracelet order to a cop tonight, $30 there, and he wants me to make a dog collar - another $20-$25 for that one. WOO HOOO!!!! I'll start off with a box of Hydra Shocks just so I have my carry ammo, and probably a small box of something decent for plinking. Maybe after payday I'll snag a 250rd box of Remington FMJ ammo from Walmart for a tad under a C-bill. That'd do me fine for a while.

    Yeah, the OTD price is always skewed. Add in the tax, plus the background check fee and it pretty much adds another $75-100. Great to hear it's finally yours, buddy!

    The good thing is I sold a bunch of stuff and probably will be sitting on about $700 to spend here soon. Money burns a hole in my pocket, so needless to say a purchase will be made! I just don't know what I want yet.

    I'm toying between either getting an original mosin nagant sniper, swiss K31, or a Saiga 12 (which i'll convert myself.)

    Hmmm.....

  12. if you guys are into AK fun check out some vids by Sonny Puzikas, he is an Ex-GRU and can run an AK like no other. been wanting to get some training from him if he ever makes it to within 5-6hrs drive from me.

    i would post vids if i had enuff posts just 5 morte posts

  13. The XDM is currently sitting on my desk right next to me so that if nothing else, whenever I see a FB post about "grab the item to your right, that is your zombie defense weapon", I'll have a really good answer!!! And oddly enough, the gunshop didn't have much of a selection for ammo last night. They had some regular Hornady JHPs and another variety. I went with the others - Hornady Z-max. Yup! First rounds purchased for the Mossberg were zombie rounds, and same with the XDM. I'm nothing if not consistent!!!!

    I did stop at Walmart before work today and picked up some FMJ rounds. I might crawl up over the hill behind the office over lunch and pop off a few rounds. Always nice to shoot on property adjacent to a prison! LOL

    Congrats!

    I bought that Hornady Z-Max ammo for all my guns too, just to have it.

    Now go out and shoot that thing.

    Assuming you mean the XDM.... lol It feels great. I thought about switching the backstrap out to the larger one just to see how it'd be, but I'm honestly VERY happy with the way it feels. It's just... perfect!! And how it shoots.... dude... HIGHLY recommend this!! DEAD on accuracy, even for a crappy shooter like me. Recoil is a little more than my Taurus 9mm, making it easy to shoot and re-acquisition fast. Overall, I'm in love with this thing.

  19. so TIL: Joe Perry plays guitar righty but shoots lefty??

    and Bruce Willis (who I knew was a lefty) is right eye dominant.

  20. Ya I seen that on Son of Guns, must have sucked to have all those shells going in your face. When he was shooting in the range.

    yup hot brass and a baggy v-neck t-shirt probably not the best combo..

    So weird if he is a natural lefty, learning to play guitar righty really hard (but if you ever want to borrow some one elses guitar, and at least until recently pay extra for a lefty model if they even make one, you learned to play righty)... if you can do that - I would think you'd be able to shoot righty?

    I do everything left handed except play guitar. I play it right handed like normal. I think it was easier to learn like that.

    I've picked up quite a few more jems for my WW2 collection. I've added a Japanese Arisaka Type 99, 1943 Mosin Nagant Sniper (real one), Steyr M95, and a few M39 Finnish Mosin Nagant's. Thankfully, I was a supplement whore years ago and my rare collection has enabled me to acquire a nice fund for this WW2 collection.

    Here's one of the Finnish M39 Mosin Nagant's that I got recently. Can't wait to shoot this bad boy!
