Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I haven't bought Glock mags in a while, been thinking about stocking a couple extras. Anyone trusting Magpul Glock mags 100% these days? Last time I was really paying attention these were new on the scene and the general consensus seemed to be "great for range use, OEM to trust with my life". Still...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

It seems the theme of the SHOT show this year is Glock pattern pistols. I was surprised how many manufacturers are offering frames and / or slides that fit Glocks.

Also, Federal is offering ammo specifically tuned for lever guns. Seems Hornady's Leverevolution has some competition now!

My most durable boots I have at the moment are Carolina 905 Linesman boots . I've had them for a few years and they are holding up very well. The extra cap on the toe helps with a wear point. https://www.familyfootwearcenter.com/product_images/uploaded_images/carolina-905-linesman-boot-usa-union-mad...

Re: Stay in city or attempt the wilderness?

An important aspect to consider is that if you bug out without somewhere to go (a bug out location you own, families house, etc.) you are making the choice to become a refugee. That may be better than your existing situation or it may not be. In a disaster people in small communities are going to be...

Is the KelTec RDB worth the price?
It's a lot cheaper than a Steyr! I enjoy bullpups myself. Value is a very personal thing though, that's up to you to score.

Re: Throwback Topic: What's your top 3 z-pac firearms?

In the world of Romero zombies, the 22 rifle is king. Totally agree, although I would step it up to 22 magnum. Sometimes 22 LR will bounce off a skull. And there are some options today that didn't exist in 2010. So my 2020 list would be: Pistol: Kel-Tec PMR-30 Rifle: Kel-Tec CMR-30 with Eotec or 1-...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

That's kind of neat, but the grip looks a bit on the small side to me. I've got a bird's head grip single action in 327 and it's not a bad grip overall. It really helps it roll in your hand under recoil. I much prefer it to the Bisley grip, which puts my hand in a position where there trigger guard...

Re: Choosing a rifle for a small frame deer hunter

Picking out a firearm for anyone is kind of like buying shoes and a tie for someone...i.e. It is hard to get a proper fit. I totally agree. Firearm fit is a very personal thing.

Do you have a youth or smaller person who plans to hunt for deer or other medium sized game? I took some time to discuss how to make an ideal choice for a rifle for a small hunter.

plus they ship with a 9mm barrel (or at least mine did). but I haven't tried any .22 TCM through it yet (hadn't ever heard of the round before I got the pistol).
TCM is a lot of fun. No recoil, lots of muzzle flash.

Yes, they make several models, both double stack and single stack. I keep hoping more people will offer models as well and more choices in ammo will be offered.

The wood stove I puts out a more reasonable about of heat, but if you don't have good wood you have to...
