    M&P fullsize chop!

    Thought I'd share some photos of my new carry. I've been really happy with my M&P fullsize. I've been using for almost a year in IDPA and USPSA Production but the grip was just a little too large for daily CCW. I looked a the subcompacts but didn't like the feel of the condensed grip. What I...

    Crimson Trace LaserGrips and Left Handed Shooters.

    Wondering if any of you leftys have tried the CT lasergrips. CT says they work for both right AND left handers but I remember sometime back I was looking at some at the gunshop mounted to a G17 bluegun. I could easily active the laser with my left hand no problem, but it seemed like the thumb of...

    Calling Your Shot.

    Brief definition: Calling a shot is mentally identifying the exact location or orientation of the sight picture the moment the gun fired. When I first started competitive shooting many senior shooters gave the advice of dryfire practice. So I did it, a lot of it. It help immediately with my...

    Living Trust for NFA Weapons!

    Just found an easy way to obtain automatic, short barrel rifles, surpressors, AOWs without having to get fingerprinted and a Chief LEO sign off (provided your state allows civilians to own them and you have the money to buy them)! All you need to do is create a Revocable Living Trust (easily...

    9mm carbines.

    Does anybody own or has anyone built an pistol caliber AR Carbine or other 9mm carbine? We have a new Carbine division in our Monthly IDPA shoot and I want to give it a try. I was originally going to buy a 9mm upper to swap calibers on the same lower, but I think I'm just going to build a...

    U-Notch Rear Sight

    Has anybody tried a U-notch rear? Something like a Warren or a 10-8? I'm thinking about trying one on my M&P. The benefit is that the round bottom is less distracting to the eye when lining up the top corners of the front and rear (the ony corners you see are the ones you should be looking at)...

    Shooting Glasses Preference?

    I've decided on Oakley Half-Jacket Asian Fit (yes I'm asian) with VR28 lenses for general outdoor use and need to pickup some accessory lenses for indoor/low light shooting. Do you guys prefer the HI Yellow or the Clear for indoor range use? Thanks, Andy

    Cracked Kydex repair?

    I have a nice IWB holster with leather pull the dot straps that I really like. It just developed a small crack right at the top of the site channel. Is there anything I can do to keep it from cracking more or better yet, repair it? I have some leftover kydex from making knife sheaths and mag...

I'm also torn between buying a...

    IDPA vs IPSC?

    I've been doing IDPA for a couple years now and its a blast. I am thinking of giving IPSC (USPSA) Production division a try to get more trigger time. I realize that they are both games but I was just wondering if any of you guys did both. From speaking to a couple of buddies that do both, they...

    DPM Recoil system?

    Has anybody tried the DPM Recoil system? Its an upgraded guiderod with 3 different springs (as opposed to the standard 1). Take a look at the 2 videos in the link below. One is without the system and the other with. You can see a definate reduction in recoil and muzzle flip if in fact they are...

    1911 question.

    Which manufactures make a Commander sized (4") slide with an Officer sized frame? I think I remember holding a Colt CCO in this configuration and thought it would be a great gun for CCW. Would it be possible for a smith to fit a slide from a Commander to a frame from an Officer?

    Pro Basketball Players involved in shooting To paraphrase, 3 NBA (Pacers) players were involved in an altercation outside a strip club. One fired 5 shots in the air. Not sure if they got special treatment or not, and I don't know the laws in Indiana, but...

    Sight types and modifications

    I've tried a number of different sights and always come back to the old notch and post. I used to run a fiber optic front but have gone back to a standard black sight with a small dot of dayglo piant. The fiber optic was so bright I wasn't seeing a crisp edge on the front sight. I also prefer my...

    SW M&P 9mm?

    Has anyone shot one of these? Held one at the local gunshop and it felt really good. Has 3 different palm swells that swap out to your preference. Gunshop dude said its totally new, nothing like the stinkmas (sigma). Seems to have a high grip/beavertail and really low bore-axis, feels pretty...

    Smallest 9mm subcompact?

    Think of trading my XD subcompact for a Kahr PM9. My XD has been great, but its kind of a chunky pistol. width is close to 1.2" and its blocky. I carry it fine with jeans or shorts and a T-shirt, but there are times when wish it were more compact/smaller/flatter like when I wear dress slacks...

    1911 hammer follow?

    When I dropped my slide on an empty chamber, no mag (I know its bad for the gun) the hammer dropped to half-cock. When I drop the slide on a loaded mag, or when I fire the gun the hammer stays put. I bent in the left sear spring leaf slightly and the problem went away. I haven't done any...
