This is a versatile option, one that I'm thinking of doing as I have a G23 now with a conversion barrel for 9mm and I would like the smaller G27 for carry but like the ability to use 9mm as well

Re: Stuff to know about long distance walking

Good post, some interesting feedback. One issue that I came to terms with when I first got into this was getting into the mindset of being a Hiker and not a Camper. Weight makes a huge difference and you don't need every creature comfort you can cram into a pack. This in itself is an enjoyable menta...

Re: Glock 19 or 23 and Gen3 or Gen4

I was kind of leaning towards a Glock 23 Gen3 with a Lonewolf 40 to 9mm conversion barrel. Seems like the best of both worlds, but I want to see what the forum thinks. I have the G23 Gen 4 with the lonewolf 9mm conversion barrel and it works out well. Not only cheaper practice ammo but the ability ...

Re: RIT Dye - ACU/DCU to Ranger Grean - CHEAP!

I've used Rit to dye quite a few pouches, they turn out quite well for the most part. I always just use the washing machine mind. Two things I do that I think help is to wash the pouches etc first, this helps break down the waterproofing on the material and thus help it take dye better. Secondly use...
