Re: Thinking of a G26 gen 4 to trade my Xdm compact 9

I bought a Gen 4 G26 for myself just before Christmas. It is now my new EDC. This is what I like about it: Grip texture of the Gen 4. Accuracy Larger mag release on the Gen4 10 round standard magazine and available extended magazines (at least when I bought it extended mags were available). Ease of ...

Re: Situation that almost made me think of pulling weapon...

I had a somewhat similar experience several years ago. While I was being followed I called the dispatch opertor for the constables that patrolled my neigborhood. The dispatcher told me to stop so that the constables could find me. I told her I did not want to stop and asked that the constables meet ...

Re: Impressed by Remora

I have used one for several weeks. I have a Walther PPQ with a Veridian C5 laser (no light). I originally ordered the #10 with a reinforced top with the light/laser option. I also specified the ART (reduced profile top that enables getting a better grip on the gun during the draw). The holster arriv...

Re: Bill O'Reilly

He also said the sale of any "heavy caliber" weapon should immediately be reported to the FBI. In the context of his show this would mean an AR15. He also said any crime committed with a gun should immediately become a federal offense. It probably wouldn't do any good but his staff needs to inform h...

Re: Leather Shoulder Holster or Kangaroo Carry?

I have used the kangaroo carry (original model) for several years with my PM9. It works for me. They now have several different models. Some models have a retention strap. Check out their website for more info including videos.

Re: Left handed AR users

I am right handed but left eye dominant. I also cannot close my left eye without closing both eyes (not good for shooting!). I shoot left handed but installed the ambi-mag release. Learn to shoot with both eyes open! The only time I close an eye is if I'm using a scope over 4X. Handguns: I shoot ha...

Re: Saiga 12 Gunsmith Houston/Northern Areas?

Again check the Saiga 12 forum. Have you removed the gas puck and inspected the gas holes? Mine has three holes. They were partially blocked from the factory. Cleaned them out before shooting it the first time. No problem with heavy loads and gas setting 1.

Re: A question of Armadillos

In my neighborhood successful kills have been made with: 22LR (piston and rifle) 40 SW 17 HMR 20 and 12 gauge shotgun with buc...

There are plenty of signs around the store informing customers of that the prices are for cash and that CC purchases are 3% more.
