Re: Looking into a new pistol

So no love for the XDM 10mm? I want a 10mm, and if I am going to get one, I would like to be able to swap calibers. A couple.of hundred bucks to be able to able to do so is fine with me. It is more about being able to experience the feel of the round, and being able to share it with other shooters. ...

Re: Looking into a new pistol

I'm sorry to not answer the question you are asking, but a far better way is to stock enough commonly available (and far cheaper) ammunition during normal times that you don't even notice periods of low supply.... I have this covered. plenty of 9mm, 45 ACP, & .22 picking up something to handle odd ...

Looking into a new pistol

I am thinking about picking up a pistol that can use some of the odd ball ammo that is more available in strange times. I would like it to be chambered in 10mm (cause I don’t have one, and I really should), but have a .40 S&W barrel available, and possibly a .357 sig as well. I prefer an 18 degree g...

Doesn't/didn't RIA make a 1911-alike in .22TCM? Yes, they make several models, both double stack and single stack. I keep hoping more people will offer models as well and more choices in ammo will be offered. plus they ship with a 9mm barrel (or at least mine did). but I haven't tried any .22 TCM t...

Re: Which is the better weapon Kukri or Katana?

Katana, wrapped in blue phone wire.... on second thought, the Kukri, cause it is very unlikely that you will get a quality katana, as most of them are built for looks not combat, its long think blade will damage easily. even with a cheap Kukri, you have a thick heavy blade, that is less prone to dam...
