Re: Lube: What are you folks using?

RemOil for .22 cal stuff. Also a little in revolver actions, like, every few years. Its thin, so I like it for that stuff. I also run it through on a patch or snake after cleaning bores. Everything else gets a light layer of Weapon Shield after I clean it. The Weapon Shield cleaner works well too. C...

Re: A Kel Tec Sub 2000 in 9mm

Just picked up a Gen2 a few weeks ago, new for $410. The gun, like all KT stuff, sucks...awesome concept/horrible execution. the 400-500 price is baseline. Look to adding a 100 dollar after market front sight, atleast. I've added the Red Lion front sight, an aluminum trigger and after market rear si...

Re: Anybody have experience with Matador Arms SABERTOOTH MK1

That thing just screams "I SHOOT TANNERITE IN LAWN MOWERS!!!"

I'm also a hypocrite...to a small degree. My SKS has a 17'' home-job cut n' crowned barrel, tech sights, and Prince-50 front sight.

Re: Post it notes for sighting in targets...

I always wanted to try putting something like a cheap light offset behind the target to make holes pop a little more when viewed through a spotting scope. Maybe couple it an overhang of the target stand to block direct sunlight on the holes from the front so back lit holes contrast a little more. Th...

Yyeeeeaahhhh. Didn't want to say anything, but in my post "got rid of the Kahr..." Sucks too because I really want to like that gun and Kahrs in general. They're hit or miss. Been through 6 of them (PM9, PM40, CW9, MK9, CW45, CW380). The PMs and CW380 couldn't earn my trust. The MK9 was awesome, but...

Re: So I am taking the plunge for a carry permit. Holsters?

I used to run 10-15 miles with a CW380. I just used a taco-style kydex that I made myself. Attachment was a metal clip. iced the side that sits against my body with Mole Skin. Got rid of the CW380, but I carry a S&W BG380 now the same way. My favorite holsters are from MTR Custom Leather out of NC. ...

Re: Stuck between G43/XDS/Shield 9mm

Manufacturer's websites have the weights. Weight plays a part, atleast for the XDS as its substantially heavier. other than that, smaller ones generally conceal better. I have a Shield and a Glock 43. Glock 43 is my favorite.

Re: Stuck between G43/XDS/Shield 9mm

Next time you handle them, don't feel for quality. Feel for how your finger indexes the trigger, feel for how your hands lock into the frame, and feel for the controls and how you can reach them. You actually can feel for those atributes vs quality.

Re: Need a headlamp for work

Because of the detailed nature of wiring and amount of time spent in boxes, I think battery life is going to carry weight. I've used Petzl for the last 8 years and have never found a need to look anywhere else. I also wouldn't spend all that one one headlamp. Sounds like identifying whats in the box...

Re: Unusual Item(s) In Your BOB

Thinking about a wood rasp or a section of one just for making fires. Dry wood is easy (ish) in the wet. Just chop off the wet outside. But tinder...the rasp would produce a bunch of saw dust pretty easy from the dry center of choped wood. Only reason I think of this is because I just used the saw o...

Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

I know. Thanks though. One of the first things I tried when I bought my 26 (now sold) about 8 years ago. Meant a 19 frame for chopping since I already have a 19 with sights I like. In retrospect, buying just a frame is dumb because, well, more guns is more better.
