Re: mathews switchback

Not "oldschool" by any means, the Switchback series (and most notably the short ATA Switchback XT) have long been considered one of the most pure "hunting" bows that Mathews produced. It really wasn't anything special on speed (315IBO) and didn't have the short factor until the SBXT was released, bu...

Re: That didn't take long

Love 10 and 11. :rofl: Seen them both, and the release on the string can make a mess and a heck of a bruise. Dahrkstorm - There's nothing wrong with that for practice's sake - any time you draw a bow there should be an arrow on the string, but if she's doing it repeatedly you might want to consider ...

Re: mathews switchback

Great bow, likely one of Mathew's best - just old in terms of it's manufacture and current technology. Mathews bows are draw length specific, so if it's too long or two short you'll be looking at replacing the bottom cam to the tune of about $80. Parts are available through the dealer network, so ge...

Re: Firearms Chat.....Sans catchy title

Curious to know how people fall on the AD v. ND issue. Do you think it's a worthwhile distinction? Do you think an emphasis on the role of negligence in firearms mishaps will discourage new shooters from being receptive to safety training? I like the way the FAA classifies incidents involving plane...

Ok, firearms chat. Need some input from those in the know. After a year or two of research/internal debate/etc, I think I'm finally about ready to put a sling on my 870. A little background: This is a hunting shotgun, for deer (slug only zone), ducks, grouse, etc. It is NOT a tactical setup, and ne...

Armadillo has recieved numerous positive recommendations.

As a plug for a ZS member, hit up RTF Squared - his clones have been received well from a few of the folks that have looked into them.

Re: Handgun for CC/HD

+1 for the SR9c. I think these are very underrated. I've got a standard one and my wife has a "C" (which she shoots very well, by the way.) These two are accurate and have been very reliable for us, and are about as slim as you can get in a double-stack. Personally I like slim pistols. They conceal...

Re: Firearms Chat.....Sans catchy title

I guess I'm not seeing the issue at all with the light sticking past the end of the pistol. With the 19 it's quite comfortable at my 1 but does take an adjustment when I go to sit or the light tries to bury itself into my inner hip/ groin / area. The 34 is long enough that it takes a little more ad...

Re: Firearms Chat.....Sans catchy title

The railed 26 has been the topic of discussion a few times around the campfire. I'm not sure if I'm tracking what your meaning by counter intuitive. The ease of which the 26 can be concealed added to the fact that you could have a light attached really would be an awesome package. But here's the de...

Re: Firearms Chat.....Sans catchy title

Hopefully Glock comes out with a railed version of the subcompacts. Its the only reason I don't own a 26 yet. I think one of those Veridians would be tits on one. Honestly this is sort of the motivation I have for getting a used G19 and then cutting it down. I'd be worried that the light hanging of...
