Re: Worst SHTF Handgun

For me, the worst handgun is the Beretta 92f. I hated this pistol in the navy. It jammed when I needed it. And I have heard the high "break" rate with field use. They are inside the house type of pistols in my opinion. They just collapse with any type of ware or debris. I fell in love with glock, bu...

Re: What to look for in a budget shotgun for home defense?

I don't know how everyone else feels about what kind of shot you want to push out of the barrel inside a home- But in my opinion- If you are ever anticipating firing a shotgun inside your home for defense, you should look at how your house is layed out. If you have small pets, kids, etc things that ...

Re: Reload carbine or transition to a pistol at close range?

I have always been trained to transition if I am within effective range of my sidearm. Regardless of where I am and what is going down. If I'm dry, I am dry and I need to have the option of putting rounds down range to give me time to maneuver and bring my primary back online. Now in a close quarter...

Re: new-ish shooter looking for help with pistol technique

^^^^^^ What that guy said, sounds like you are anticipating a recoil. You might be trying to compensate for the bang before it happens which means you can be jerking the trigger. When you are using a pistol or any non mounted weapon for that matter, you should not ever anticipate when the gun goes b...

Re: PLR-16 Discussion... Any and all input appreciated

I just wanted some opinions and hard facts about this gun lol.

I do not own one, and I was interested in this one because overall keltec has had decent reviews on their products.

it is somewhat decently priced and easy to modify for a stow and go protection piece in my opinion.

PLR-16 Discussion... Any and all input appreciated

I did a search and didn't see anything on this and I would like to know the thoughts of everyone please. So the KelTec PLR-16, from factory looks is not to pretty but has the potential for a nice urban friendly "rifle". http://www.keltecweapons.com/uploaded_files/ourguns/gallery/b_7b9e48a1a2d2e4314d...

In my opinion... I think having a supplement that doesn't sustain you, but helps you transition is a great idea. If you... are working out and on a plan at the gym and are taking protein and supplements to bulk or build muscle- I wouldn't think that is a logical lifestyle if shtf or an end of the wo...
