Re: M&P Shield 1st Round FTF Malfunction

I have probably 2000 rounds through Shields, never experienced what you describe. However, I never use the slide stop to release the slide, I always pull back on the slide to release it. I've thought about that. I've always used the slide stop method, but the pull method does give the slide a littl...

Re: M&P Shield 1st Round FTF Malfunction

BSHII, are you using the S&W magazines that came with the pistol? Have you modified the magazines? Yes, all S&W factory mags--one 7 round and one 8 round that came with the pistol, and two 8 rounds that I received from S&W through a mail-in promo. I have not modified or disassembled the magazines--...

M&P Shield 1st Round FTF Malfunction

I had a couple unusual malfunctions at the range yesterday, and I wondered if anyone else had experienced it or had any thoughts: I was shooting my M&P Shield 9mm (not 2.0). It has the Apex Duty trigger/spring kit, though I don't think that has anything to do with this malfunction. I'd say it has ab...

Re: Nobody but Corey Booker

Even leaving the Second Amendment aside, when does he imagine Congress authorized such an executive order? Or does he think it is just open season after Trump's bump stock ban? Congress doesn't issue/authorize executive orders. The president does. Yes, but he generally needs some Congressional auth...

Caliber Wars, Brazilian-Style

A 2013 article I stumbled across that reaffirms my religious views when it comes to the .45: https://www.insightcrime.org/news/brief/brazil-restrictions-high-caliber-guns-police/ Brazil will now allow cops and firefighters "to buy powerful .45 caliber guns for personal use, raising fears over how th...

Re: Goldilocks Gun Recommendations

I am shopping for a new carry pistol. My current carry guns are a Glock 21 and a Shield 9mm. I love the Glock 21, have owned it 17 years, shoot well with it, and am partial to .45, but it's massive and impractical to carry except in a belt holster under a jacket or openly in a paddle holster. The S...

Re: What is your favorite carry revolver

S&W Model 60-15 Pro Series, 3” barrel, in .357 Magnum. Excellent trigger and sights. Recoil with full-house Magnum loads is brutal, but it’s tolerable with the 125 gr Winchester PDX1 bonded JHPs I carry. I might switch to 110 grain Winchester white box JHPs, which I have found easy to shoot, or a 11...

I was there a few weeks ago. If there were 30.06 or 30.07 signs, I didn’t notice them.

Re: I am not going to buy a gun today!

I too am not buying a gun on Valentines. Maybe I bought a bunch of parts. And maybe they’ll magically be assembled into a gun-like object. But that is not buying a gun, I say.

Re: Book: "Negroes and the Gun: The Black Tradition of Arms"

A lot of people forget that the law against carrying in Texas is a Jim Criw law dating back to 1873 that was passed for the purpose of disarming blacks.
