A shotguns packs a large punch in a small form. The "whipit" gun was popular back in the day because by having a short shotgun strapped to your shoulder and hanging down, all you have to do is whip it up and you are ready to shoot. A shortened shotgun provides great concealability with great firepo...

Re: "Sawed-off" weapons and other illegal mods

They aren't illegal to own, you just have to do the correct paperwork for an AOW/SBS. AOW/SBS? SBS == S.B.S. - Short Barrel Shotgun...AOW ==... Why are they illegal? I can't answer that without getting too political, so I'll say: "Because the National Firearms Act of 1934 says so" I'll do some furt...

"Sawed-off" weapons and other illegal mods

A friend and I were talking over Skype a few days ago and he addressed the concept of sawed-off or illegally shortened weapons. He asked simply "Why are sawed-off shotguns illegal exactly?" After attempting to provide a valid reason I realized that, in my limited experience, there isn't one. It make...

I find the Fobus Paddle Holsters work nicely if you can afford to wear a sweater, or light overshirt. For the summer I go to the Clipdraw and a Safe-T-Block. Your g19 will serve you well. I'll look into these too. Thank you as well. I'll have to try on a variety of them until I find what suits my n...

Personally, i don't recommend Mexican carry (the term referring to the practice of the Mexican vaqueros who hid their pistols in there sashes to hide them from the Spaniards who assumed they did not have them if they did not wear a pistol belt) on any trigger safety gun (Kahr, Glock, Sigma, Etc.). ...

One warning. If you decide to CCW without a holster (i do this on a regular basis) Make sure you either run with an empty chamber (what i do) or get the small plastic plug that fits behind the trigger. It is VERY EASY to snap the trigger on your clothing and have an ND SW Thanks for the heads up. I...

I think I'm in the minority when I place more of my faith in bugging in somewhere instead of this 'bugging out' idea.

I've been hearing a lot of people brag that they're guns are better because they can hit targets at ranges of 200, 300, 400, 500, or even more yards. During a PAW, what would be the advantage of this? I guess it would be nice to hit a deer from 4 football fields away, but how often does this happen...

Are you kind of going for the same idea they had in Dawn of the Dead (2005)?

I think from a capacity angle it's great, but I would think it'd be a bitch trying to maneuver through all the chaos on city streets.

Just my impression any way.
