Re: Anyone own a PCC?

My Masterpiece Arms MPA 71, very well made, 100% reliable, 9mm using Soumi Drums. http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z271/reloader1959/rifles/mpa71range.jpg My brother owns one of the 9mm PCC in the original post...works great and is accurate.

Re: Shotgunners: Wax slugs for zombie defense.

Of course the hogs head had already been shot repeatedly before being shot with the wax slug...kinda makes the data B.S. in my opinion. Also at the range they where shooting at a regular shotshell would create the same type of rathole wound. In addition the folds on a shotgun shell do much more than...

Re: The new smith & wesson M&P Shield

3/10ths of an inch bigger than the Kel Tec PF9 in height, length, and width. Same style sights, about the same weight. If I didn't already own a PF-9 I would give this S&W serious consideration.

Re: Full size 9mm Recommendations

Along a completely different line have you considered a wide body 1911 in 9mm? An STI Tactical 4.0 would give you a Commander sized pistol with a 17+1 capacity with standard magazines or up tp 26+1 with extended mags.

The conversion is from Twisted Industries and they make conversions for several Kel Tecs.

Re: Kel Tec P11 9 mm

Mine has run flawlessly since day one and has been dry fired and shot enough the trigger feels like a well tuned J-Frame trigger. It is closing in on about 3000 rounds of 9mm and probably 5000+ rounds of .22. The 22 conversion is a great addition...accurate, fun, and makes for a great woods gun...mi...

Re: M1 .30 Carbine with red dot sights

I did an old school conversion on my carbine...the longer stock fits me much better and the scope is a 2.5X El Paso Weaver with post and crosshair. Handles great and the low power scope is perfect for CQC as well as reaching out several hundred yards. http://i188.photobucket.com/albums/z271/reloader...

I am still old school here, buy my Red Dot by the keg. There may be cleaner burning powders out there but Red Dot is so reliably consistent it is what I always ended up coming back to.

Re: Mossberg MVP Range Report

I think the 300 Whisper would be fine in a bolt gun, be even quieter than my AR in 300 Whisper because of the locked action. I had though about having JD do an integral suppressor on one of these but I own a Ar in 300 Whisper and a Ruger 77 in .308 with a can for it as well....so this rifle will sta...

Mossberg MVP Range Report

Had time today before a shooting competition to finally try out the MPV. Sadly I had only one type of ammo with me and it wasn't the best suited for the twist rate. I had 20 rounds of Black Hills 68gr JHP (I grabbed the .308 range box by mistake) Fortunately it was enough to get the scope close and ...

Mossberg MVP

My dealer called me to let me know the Mossberg MVP I had on order since last summer is finally going to show up. To me this will make for a great rifle with many features I like, most noticeably it uses AR magazines and is chambered for 5.56 and will handle the .223 as well. Other things I like inc...

Re: What to do with an AR carry handle upper?

There are about a dozen reasons to not do that and I can think of one that makes it a good idea. What are the reasons? Evidently this is a good enough design to be made commercially made and is indeed available as a factory unit. The irons can't be removed...big deal. They also cannot be knocked of...

Re: Shotgun barrel question.

I'm guessing the loophole concerning a pistol grip firearm that shoots a shotshell came about because of the Tarus Judge. The ATF had to rule that it's not a SBS even though the barrel is less than 18". Heck they are even making 410 derringers now. They've been making those for a good while now. He...
