Re: Looking for a new .380 pocket pistol.

Recoil on a diminutive little 380 like the Ruger LCP gonna feel more than a Glock 43 There is only one reason to carry a small pocket pistol. That is self protection. They are not game getters. They are not target pistols. If you ever pull it and are forced to use it you'll be glad you've got the 9m...

Re: Looking for a new .380 pocket pistol.

380's are out of fashion.

I've got a bunch of them. Ruger LCP, PPK/S, Colt Government, Colt Pocketlite.

I'd make the jump to 9mm.

Glock 43.

I compared it to a Glock 42 and went with the 43.

Re: Talk me out of it

Good gun for the money.

I have a pair.

But I'd recommend looking for a YouTube video on how to fine tune the action. Polish down some of the tooling marks in the chamber.

Re: 20 rd Chinese made sks fixed magazine and 922r complianc

You might want to consider making it 922 exempt by adding US made parts.

There are several websites that explain the parts breakdown and how to count parts.

Re: Perscription labels kept with my medication in my BOB?

In Alabama prescription meds not in the original container can get you arrested. Assuming no other issues the prosecutor will likely offer a pretrial diversion.

Proceed at your own risk.

Now will all officers arrest you if they are in a ziplock with the label?

Probably not. But you may get Barnie
