  6. 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.

    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.

  9. I have the BlackHawk Xiphos on my Glock 22. Great light, super bright too.

  10. 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....

    For the Zombie loads, i know impact has had them online. can you order ammo online though? never thought of that until just now.

    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!

    Yeah buddy!

    There is no better feeling than purchasing a new firearm, haha! Enjoy the project my friend!

    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.

  18. All this shotgun talk has me looking at them now . Any experience with the mossberg 590? That would be at the high end for me I think. Is it that much better than a 500? They both read to better pretty solid and reliable is the 590 just the milspec version?


    As much as I am fighting it a 12 gauge does make sense as a first purchase home defense for a novice.


    Now I just need to submit for my firearms Id card. Only $5 to apply but damn it's a 5+ month wait to get it.

    5 months? what state do you live in? man that is a long time, and i thought the 5(ish) days was long enough here in Nebraska.

  20. Nj. Lucky you can still get a license here. Heard rumors at least online you may even need an ammo card or something to even buy ammo.

  21. Ummm... License to own a firearm? No, man. Unconstitutional. If anything, you may be thinking of a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Those are different. NO state, not even NY or CA can tell you that you need a permit to buy a firearm. If your federal background check goes through, then you can buy one and keep one at home. The permit means that you can carry it out in public places under a shirt, jacket, etc., and sometimes extends to carry in a car in certain fashions.

    Here in PA, things are a bit more lax than NJ. We are an open carry state, which means that I can stroll down the sidewalk with a pistol on my hip for all to see. If I put a shirt on over it, or tuck it in my pants, THEN I need a permit. Goofy how that works, no? lol I can also carry a loaded firearm in a vehicle in plain sight, too.

    For a shotgun, unless you plan on buying the pistol grip model that I just did.... YES!! I HAVE IT!!! WOOOO!!!!!!... then it's gonna be really hard to conceal it. Double check me on the local laws, but I'm really pretty sure that you don't need a permit to buy your shottie and keep it in the house for home defense!!


    As for your 500 vs 590 question, so far as I know, the 590 usually has more shot capacity. 500 is a 5+1 and the 590 is a 7+1. But, not always. I bought a 500 Cruiser which comes in either the 6 or 8 shot. I got the 8 shot, of course! I think the 590 has a metal trigger guard or something else, too. Not really sure what's the big difference. Just a slightly fancier model, maybe. Honestly, though, I'd say either is just fine. The military has been using Mossbergs and the Remington 870, from what I'm told, for many years. Both are "proven". Moss's are cheaper from what I've seen, and I like the placement of the safety up top (more visible, more deliberate to change it to 'fire') and the action release position. All in all, it comes down to personal taste, IMO.

    I'll have to get a pic of mine up here. Nothing too special so far, but it's the one in the picture I posted on the last page - basically, that is, since mine was still in the box so I'm the only one to handle it outside the factory. (Virgin!!!) I already installed a Tac Star 6-shot side saddle on it, and it's loaded with Mil-spec 00 Buck. 2 3/4" rounds. Was going to put the ZMax ammo in the saddle, but the mil-spec ones were darker brass and OD green. They look more bad azz for now. On the way, next pay day at the end of the month, I'll ditch that silly pistol grip.

    Oh, and I totally brought the shottie home on the bike. YES!!!

  22. i triple checked it. even remember it from when i was looking years back.

    you have to fill out the app at the police station when the officer who handles them is on duty.

    they you have to submit for a permit when you are ready to buy. I really wish i was making it up..

    http://chiplakenews.org/wscnjfpIDcard.html

  23. i am figuring you can go wrong with either. I did some more digging last night and the 500 is set up for easier barrel changes, and the 590 is set up for easier cleaning and what not.. when terms like solid racking and action lock, never jammed on people after pumping countless number of loads of diffrent shot, slugs, brands are in just about every review I feel pretty safe in relying on either.

    For the extra $160 or so, if i am going to do it, might as well do it right If anything I would upgrade the safety (if at all) and maybe go with the heat shield. Already comes with the stock of choice (not sure if the price is diffrent though) from the factory. Most likely would go with the standard stock unless the adjustible felt more comfortable.

    The one i was looking at online had the normal stock 7+1 capacity, and ghost ring sights. Came in around $460. I know sights on a shot gun is a bit un needed (and some people said it slows down the natural aiming using them.) But i am not sure if their was much if any of a price diff to opt out of them.

    One of these days I am going to stop at a shop on the way home and do some window shoppign and get a lowdown on the hoops i am going to need to jump through...

  24. Sorry, one more question. was the side saddle much of an effort to install? Is it just a matter of screwing it on?

    I hear ya on doing things right! With me, I wanted a solid base, and i got that. The only thing that mine doesn't have that I can't do without a barrel swap is have a breacher barrel. No choke on mine and can't have one. But it's not like I'm going to be blowing doors off anytime soon. It's just something that looked cool. I knew from the start that I was going to mod mine out. I have a tendency to do that to things I buy. Bike, cars, etc.. I spent minimum for what I needed, and I know for sure that I'll be throwing atleast the cost of the gun itself into the mods before I'm done! Stock - $80. Rail - $100. Saddle - $35. Flashlight & laser - $125+. Optics - $125+. That's just a few ideas off the top of my head.

    Dude, I SUCK at anything mechanical! If it's not pounding in a nail, I can mess it up, and I often mess up nails. This was really easy, though. Punch out the pin at the rear of the trigger mechanism, replace with a longer screw. Open action, remove screw right inside the chamber, replace with longer one. Screw/bolt on adapter plate. Place shell holder on plate, screw in 6 small screws, wham bam thank ya ma'am. The instructions on the package are easy, and when in doubt, YOUTUBE!!!! You wouldn't believe how many great tutorial vids there are on there!!!!

  26. Seriously I want to get a license now before I can't later on. Still not sure if I need to get finger printed too, (from when i was looking to Substitute Teach back in college, i know that's at least $50)... Really I do not get how weird this state is, considering how lax it is in PA and NY. I could literally go to a garage sale in NY and buy a rifle or shotgun.

    I've (and my father for sure as well) done the get the cheapest thing that will get the job done route. and then end up spending as much money getting other things before I just cave and buy the expensive one anyways.

    Hogs are worse than guns or guitars or tools. Drop how ever much on the bike and then easily spend half of that or more chroming it. When my father got his, they had the "well that's already been chromed at the factory so tack that price onto the bill. Don't think any bikes in the stop were "bone stock" in that respect.


    Cool that it is that easy to put on! RE you tube, tell me about it. I learned to install a 2 switch light plate, and field strip a Glock in the same weekend thanks to it

  27. what i should do is go out with my inlaws and do a little shooting at the shotgun range. I know they have at least 3?? and easily that many rifles. ony issue is a matter of how they were stored. I know all the rifles would need to be gone over fully before they were used. pretty sure at least one of the shotguns and good to go.

    need to ask them what model the pump is. Guessing either Mossy or Rem.. though i guess it could be a Winchester or Ithaca. I know they have had it for years..

    Fathers day trip to the Clay Pidgeon range could be nice. need to figure something out
