  1. 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!!!!

    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
    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.

    There are two in Jersey that will rent handguns and a couple of long guns, one is shoreshot, the other is brick armory:

  6. thanks! i will have to take a look when i get home.

    two or more people is no beig deal, I would be going with fam anyways. Just would love to find one not a 2 hour drive to get to

    I have a shotgun range nearby that we keep taking about going too but never make it.

  7. I have a shotgun range just a block up from my house! Oh wait, no... that's a playground full of teens. No, I'm right... shotgun range. We're good.

  8. 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.

  16. 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.

    and Subbed to this thread, confirming that I found this thread from the AM newsletter!!

    also REPS for starting this thread Trauma1

    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.

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

  20. 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....

  21. Very cool shotgun man! Congrats!

    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!
