This to me is more practical and quick... But still slow for what we are discussing defensively... And again, strap on your belt or are you better off slipping on a carrier with mags already on it giving you some ammo and protection?

Re: The Suburban Shotgun: Is it really needed?

If the weapon is unloaded I consider it the same as carrying without a round in the chamber, no go... Arizona does have an unspoken rule about long guns being unloaded while driving so my truck AR is bolt open, port door closed with mag at the ready which is much quicker than any shotgun load not to...

Re: Why Is This Man And His Son Dead? GRAPHIC

Raptor summed it all up nicely and Jor-el's experiences speak to the why's. Violent crimes happen in an instant... One less thing to think about and a half second you will forever wish you got back if you waste it trying to chamber a round... Esp if you induce a malfunction like it appears to happen...

Re: What does it take to find shooting gloves that FIT?!

Put my vote down for baseball gloves as you can either stretch or shrink them to a partial degree... Offer some protection yet retain an acceptable degree of dexterity... On a previous point, I forced myself through training to get used to shooting with gloves, rifle, pistol, and even multishell sho...

KBilly, seems like a good setup i think Larry Vickers has some vids with rifles setup like that.

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

KBilly running a tube longer than your gas block will be advantageous as it allows a lot more mounting area and with a proper grip it allows you to grip forward of the hottest area by the gas block on everything but a rifle length gas system. I have no input on keymod attachment. For mounting and st...
