Re: My Sidearm Choice - The CZ 75!

There is a additional bonus to the CZ line, at least the steel framed 75/85 series. I carry a Jericho 941 full size steel framed 9mm, my brother carries a CZ-85 9mm, and we also have a full sized Tanfoglio ( EAA Witness) steel frame 9mm. All three share magazine interchangability, and are very accur...

Re: Help me identify this armor

I am unsure on the carrier, but the armor appears to be Vietnam era ceramic plate. Made by the same company that made plates for door gunners on Hueys.

Re: Anybody EDC fixed blades?

Yup, I EDC a small custom made punch dagger ( made by a local 'smith) on my belt as a off hand defensive weapon. I love the fact that in az we can carry ANY knife, just about any where. ( this is a similar dagger, its what mine was based on but mine has a larger handle and a blade that while slightl...

Re: Considering a Double Action .357

Smith is very nice, but the Ruger can be cleaned up just as well. I prefer the 5" full lug on the Gp100 - perfect balance over the 6", and just a little more weight over the 4". It's an absolute pop-gun with 38's, full house 357M's are comfortable, and the 180BB loads are snappy but controllable. A...

Re: Guy at the door says he's "looking for gas" with no gas

I guess if you live in the middle of no-where it's common sense to have a firearm handy. But by the sounds of it most of us are just suburban commandos, take precautions if needed, but if you live in a cushy, warm inner city area with no crime, don't be packing heat when you answer the front door. ...

Jesus, we have some bloody paranoid gits on this forum. Answering the door with a gun in your hand? Please, just tell him where the nearest petrol station is. No gas can?

In regards to the 'loud' guns, allow me to educate you in suppressor use. ( Yes this was done in a legal manner, all shooting was done on private property WELL outside of city limits. In AZ that is legal.)

The belt and holster will depend on what kind of duties you have.
