    Well, I see that a few posts are missing in here as well! No big.

    John-John, I asked what a carbine was. Seen the word thrown around, but not sure what makes a rifle a "Carbine". Bolanrox said about barrel length being shorter. Confirm?

    fireworkz - Honestly, I do like my Tauruses. They both have always worked exceedingly well. The ONLY time I ever had an issue was doing something silly with them. I had the PT-99 jam on me once, but it was a misfeed from an aftermarket mag. The spring in it is a bit weak, and the last round in there didn't come up quite right. But, I can honestly say that I have run 26 rounds out of it in roughly 3-4 seconds. 1 in the chamber, told someone to watch their watch and time it. Ran through the one in the chamber and 10 rd "clinton era" clip it came with, dropped mag to the ground, slapped in the 15, emptied it. A little fancy hand work on my part, and definitely didn't really hit much, but going for speed, I was happy. I figure in a CQB situation, the more rounds I throw at someone, the better off I am to hit 'em!

    With the CIA model (the .357), I ran 5 rds of Blazer ammo through it in .357 caliber. The cartridges were rather warm, or soft, or something, and I had a bugger of a time getting them to all eject once spent. But after running better quality through it (Winchester / Federal), I have NEVER had an issue. That little revolver works well.


    And on that note, the wife and I sat down and talked about it last night. She's got RA and can no longer shoot the brute force of a 2" bbl .357. It's too small for me to comfortably handle, so I'm going to try to sell it. I hate the thought of decreasing the number of arms, so whatever I sell this for will go directly to the Mossberg 500 project I want to do! It has less than 50 rounds run through it, and is in really great shape. I figure the pistol, case, keys (internal lock), a speedloader, roughly 50 various cartridges left - probably around $375. I paid $450 for the gun alone a few years ago.

    Tim,

    I did a whole post on it yesterday with a bunch of examples, but it has vanished. I know that there have been some server issues though and posts/threads were missing. I know they're working on it. If it doesn't pop back up I'll do another one, bro.

    My only other posts yesterday afternoon was about the m14 and its apparent level of build, reliablity, stopping power, accuaracy, weight, and i assume cost, being too damn high for the army

    and how you would think the army would have learned after the .38 special v .45 in the Phillipines,
    the m1 carbine (.30 cal??) droping people in Korea only to have them get back up because it couldnt pentrate the layers they were wearing.
    Not to metion the m16 not being able to punch the through jungle cover either

    Did a little window shopping today for shotties. Didn't find exactly what I wanted, but did find a few nice ones that would work. Stopped at Gander Mountain and that was a bust. Higher prices, eventhough they'll match price with anyone else, but wasn't too impressed with the selection. Got to compare the Moss to the Remington 870, though. The Rem was a nice gun, but I like the placement of the action release and safety on the Moss's better.

    At stop 2, I checked out a few more. There was a really sharp Moss 590 for $500 with the Mariner coat on it. Quite nice. 8-shot, too. They had a few others, and one used Rem 870 for like $330 that was already slightly decked out. For what I want, it'd still need more, but honestly, for the price and what it was, it wasn't bad at all. IF I can sell the .357 outright, then I may opt for the 590 Mariner. If not...

    Had the .357 looked at by both places and asked what they'd give me for it. Gander Mt. said $180 tops. Guy showed me the book, and it's at $380 in current condition. Uh... no. Rip off! 2nd place would do about $225 for it, and owner knows my dad, so that's MUCH more likely. If I do trade with them, I may opt for the used 870, or I may do a 2-month layaway for the remainder of the mariner coated 590.

    Nice to know I have options! Now... Anybody wanna by my snubbie?!?!?!? PLEASE!!!!!!

    Trying to sell any used gun to a gun shop or dealer is a total lose situation, Tim. They have all the cards in their hand and will literally give you half of what it's actually worth. My advice would be to sell it to someone in a private sale or list it on a website like gunbroker. You're much more likely to get what you're asking for it.

    I'll see what I can do looking online myself to find you a good deal.

    This is what my 1943 Mosin Nagant Sniper Rifle (7.62 x 54R) did last time at the range.

    Not too bad for standard mil surp rounds and a gun that's 70 years old, eh? God I love this thing.005.jpg

    Well aware that I'd get screwed, man. I wanted what I got from them today, an idea of what it's worth on the market. Now that I know that, I know what I'm willing to take for it. I already do have it listed on the local armslist, but not on gunbroker yet. I wasn't sure how smooth that one would go with me not being a dealer. I'll have to read up on it. But, it is listed - armslist, local traders guide, FB, and got the word out with my dad and 2 cop buddies. Maybe something will come together.

    Cool, that's the way to do it with a local listing. If you went through gunbroker you'd have to ship it through an FFL; which would cost you money.

    I bought a few guns locally here myself through private sale. It's absolutely the best way to do it. Good luck! You NEED that shotgun!

    I know every state is going to be different, but generally do any ranges offer the option to rent a handgun or rifle to use at the range?


    I know the Gun shop in Vegas does but besides that, is it a common thing? I had been looking and most were dead ends, best i could fine was one place in South Jersey that did.

    Do you knows know a a good site to look at for info like that? Its hard enough just googling to find a local range let alone anything else

    Howdy, peeps! Just thought I'd throw an update up in here.

    Heard yesterday that I have a buyer for the .357. Yay! Getting $350 for it, which I can definitely live with. I've decided to go for the used Rem 870 that I saw last week, hoping that it's still there by the time I get there this week! 8rd capacity, slightly tac'ed out already with a rail on top, side saddle, and breacher barrel. Gonna keep the saddle and choke, but ditch the tiny rail for a much bigger one as planned. Price on it is $380 or something, so I'll roll up with some cashola and bring it home! SO EXCITED!!!

    And in anticipation of it, I went ahead and ordered a 10 rd box of Hornady Zombie Max shotshells today. I actually FOUND some!! sportsmensguide.com has 'em, all makes as it seems, too, in stock. $17 and change shipped. I just want 'em for in the saddle cause they'll look epic!

    WOOO!!!!

    I've been to ranges that do in CA, but they won't usually rent to you if you show up alone unless you have a gun with you already because they are worried about suicides. However, they will rent if you go with other people or have your own gun.

    JOHN!!!

    After doing a little digging about stocks and whatnot, I think I'm NOT going to go with the BlackHawk!/Knoxx one. Not sure of the design of it, eventhough it does look pretty BA. I found a few reviews on it both good and bad, but decided that when it's time, I'm going to go with one from ATI instead. Here's the one I'm eyeballing: http://www.atigunstocks.com/tactical...gun-stock.html CheaperThanDirt.com has it for less than $70, too. Yay!

    Nice, buddy! Most the complaints about the Knoxx stock were with the GEN 1 edition. People claim it was smacking them in the chin hard with the recoil being redirected through the tension system. They fixed that with the GEN 2 edition though. I've never had that issue with mine. It significantly reduces recoil; even for the magnum rounds.

    Here was the latest edition to my knife collection:

    Kabar Zombie Knives:




    All of these knives were former designs brought back to life (primarily WW2) which were shown to be very effective and reliable in the combat setting. If you guys don't have one, I highly recommend them.

    Check them out here: http://www.pvk.com/webcat/axesmachetes.shtml

    All you need to do is choose a good defensive 9mm load and you're good-to-go. I personally like Hornady's Critical Defense (which is what I carry), but there are a ton of good options; +P loads are recommends for carry as well, and this gun is rated for that.

    quoted for truth!! I own a Kel-Tec and use it as my secondary CC when I want something lower profile. It is an awesome pistol all around, nice feel and shoots great. I also owned the P-3AT .380 but sold it to pay for my current CC, Kimber Ultra Carry TLE II.
    I would recommend the PF-9 to anyone! My wife loves to shoot it as it fits her hands better than the Kimber or my Glock Model 22. But don't let that fool you, I shoot the gun all the time and never have issues with the size in my hands...NEVER.
    To hammer Trauma's point home, Hornady Critical Defense is also all I rock in my pistols as well.

    Awesome! Welcome, bro!

    I would love to carry my kimber all the time, but being in Florida, it's not the easiest to conceal in the summer. That's primarily why I chose the PF-9 overall. It's light weight and very easy to conceal.

    I think down the line I'd like to get a Glock 36 for CC, but I'm in no rush to do that. My PF9 serves the purpose well right now. I'm glad to hear that you and your wife have had good experiences with it as well.

    I like Hornady's critical defense line. I know that it's gotten some bad press by people on youtube who test different ammo load-outs, but I wasn't convinced of any merit with their testing efforts. I think it primarily resides in the fact that it's not a +p load, but it's been shown that it will still penetrate 4 layers of denim and up to 12" of wound cavity expansion based on ballistics gel testing. I'll take that.

    I'm bringing my new Glock 21 Gen 4 to the range tomorrow for the first time. I'll throw up a range report tomorrow. I plan to make this my primary home defense weapon (equipped with a TLR-1s light) along with my Remington 870 Tactical.

    As long as everything goes as planned, TONIGHT'S THE NIGHT!!! Meeting with the guy to sell my .357 tonight at 6, then heading on down to another gun dealer to pick up my new toy...



    Went in yesterday to look at the Rem 870 (used) that I saw last time I was there. Gone. Crap!! But I saw this one, and at the price of $350, I said hell yeah! Selling the pistol for exactly that much, so it's a good deal, IMO. Mossy 500 Cruiser, 12 ga, 8 shot, up to 3" mag shells. Put $40 down on it yesterday just to hold it. I can't wait! I have no idea when and where I'm even going to shoot it, but it's going to be a project in the making with all I want to do to it, so I'm stoked.

    And because I FINALLY found 'em somewhere in stock, I had to pull the trigger and buy a box....

    Yup, you can definitely order it online. There may be state laws and stuff, but I don't really think so. NJ is tougher than PA on stuff like that. I found these at sportsmansguide.com. I think they were $11.99 for the box of 10, plus $5.99 shipping. When I checked earlier this week, they had all of the ZMax in stock and ready to go. I thought about ordering a box of 9mm, but eh... Right now I'm shotgun-focused!

    I order all my ammo for the most part online; it's just cheaper if you know where to look. Some sites will require you to fax/email/mail photo id proof of your age, but most don't.

    This is probably one of the better places to get your ammo: http://www.sgammo.com/

    I'm going to alter my initial post in this thread so it can offer a good resource for both new and current gun owners. It should have everything from best ammo websites to best places to find guns/knives, etc at a good price. It will also have links to gun/knife reviews.

    I have a lot planned for this thread, so I hope it turns out to be a very valuable resource to the gun/knife owning community.
