Re: The usefulness of the 22 autoloder, or lack thereof.

^ I think .30carbine and .357 mag have the same case length, probably pretty similar overall lengths. Iwonder...and this is totally off topic, but the gears are turning...if a 10rnd carbine mag could be bubbafied to work in rugers 357 bolt gun.

Re: looking for good custom holsters for Sig P229

I really like MTR Custom Leather, specifically their Dual Carry. Most makers will tweak something here and there if you ask them. I've had four of their dual carries and two IWB mag pouches and really like their stuff.

Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

Its probably more an issue with theory than in practice. In practice, most folks are generally in the same boat. If we can or can't carry something, its because of a pragmatic reason. But, yeah, if there's a goofy reason (i'll only need this many rounds) or a lazy reason (I don't like it in my pocke...

Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

can anyone show some actual evidence that the mag is more likely to fail vs the gun? What shit mags are yins useing that cause all these failures...not just a malfunction needing some immeadiate actions, but these remedial action needing failures?

Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

I don't know. In practice it probably doesn't matter. Carry a mag for a malfunction or for more bad guys...what changes? Nothing. You still have a reload. Go here, but avoid there. What changes? Nothing. Your gun's capabilities aren't limited by geographical location. There just seems to be a differ...

Re: Concealed Carry: BUGs vs Mags

Am I the only one that carries more rounds specifically for mitigating more threats? Like that is my primary reason. The malfunction aspect is just a bonus advantage. Really, I've never even had a malfunction (except one using blanks in an AR with like thousand-year-old mags) that rendered a mag unu...

always a loaded pistol and a spare mag on me. I don't carry a bug on me. If I'm going somewhere far or overnight, I make sure to have access to a BUG. It may be locked in my car or locked in my bag, but its always there. Its not just for back-up either. It usually serves a purpose on the trip. Like ...

Did do one 50k ultra, but to my understanding, folks run those differently, like I walked the up hills after about 22 miles. After about 28 miles I was walking about half the flats to...

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

Can serve double duty as a non-woods ccw, is compact yet still being shootable with .357. Actually, I think that is the route I'm going to go. Always wanted ...

Need it to be hunting legal in PA, just if the occasion arises I can use it. No bottom feeders. And I think a minimum of a 4'' barrel. Regardless, I like that length.

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

I thought the Blackhawk was fine. I just don't get the chance to take that many deer. When I do, I don't want to have to pass it up because of a shot outside the capabilities of a scoped handgun. Yeah its more of a challenge, but for a guy (me) who takes lots of naps in the woods, farts the whole ti...

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

I got hands on the new Redhawk today. It looks a little unproportional with the wood grip and huge cylinder, but in a way that makes it look really cool. Felt great in my hands. I'm with you on S&W though. My only (non-SA only) is a S&W642. They're my go-to for most things. You made the .45LC not su...

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

The only problem I would have from that is a 6 round .45 cylinder wouldn't fit in my pants, especially with that gun, because it would also have to share the space with the total chub it gives me. Really I saw that a few days ago on TFB and thought it was super duper. And now to criticize it...Would...

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

none of those words in the last few posts really have anything to do with trail guns. Regardless, maybe instead of sacrificing the advantages of a glock19...buy a bigger shirt, or a new holster, or assess how your 19 was spotted and adress the issue. I don't know, getting rid of of it because one pe...

Re: Trail Gun Revisited

Love trail gun concepts.

I vote Glock.

Woods usually means waist deep water at some point for whatever reason. Fishing, crossing, I fell in, whatever. And thats if I'm lucky and its only water and not mud or some crap. I feel like I could clean a Glock using a patch cut from my shirt and a stick.

Yesterday's ass pain.
Run 100 meters, do 10 burpies, fire one off-hand shot at 50meters. Did this for a 20 rnd Lancer mag. Maybe next time I'll use a 30 rounder.

^ I like just push-ups and sit-ups on off days. Bout 150 a piece. 50 of one, then switch. I change the style of the push ups every 10, so its like diamond, 10 regular, 10 wide, 10 hands come off ground on the up, 10 hands come off ground at the bottom. Or I'll do a plank work out. Or "dirty dozens"....

Bout 40 rnds of CCI aluminum cased stuff. 100 and some rounds of reloaded stuff from a local guy here, and two mags and some change of Speer Gold dot +p, 124gr. No issues...
