"for middle of the night i keep a sig 220 in reach
at the front door I have a Barreta Stampede- (single action .45lc), we get snakes sometimes.
in my closet my favorite practical home defense is the M1 Carbine, almost no recoil, magazine fed,…"
"Gotta say, I'm a fan of the classics myself. Of course I've never met a gun I didn't like.
Some favorites are the M1 Garand, the Mosin Nagant, the AK-47 (in all its permutations) and the "scary black rifle" itself, the…"
"Hey Ted, I also am a Ruger GP100 fan. After carrying the Ruger Police Service Six as a Mecklenburg County Deputy Sheriff(Charlotte,NC/ now retired) for 13 years, I became very fond of Ruger double action revolvers. For my remaining…"
"I have a few guns, but my Ruger GP100 .357 is my favorite. I've had this gun for 10-15 years now. I walked into the USMC exchange to buy a glock, but walked out with the Ruger. It fits my hand perfectly and the weight/balance is great. Its…"
"Thank you kindly.
It shot a little left of center that afternoon, so I had to drift the rear sight a bit to get it where it needed to be. While not in the "tack driver' class, it is more than adequate for what it was intended.
"Corey - good shooting.
Don't stress. SASS posses are notoriously helpful and social. First shoots are often free. If you dress half way right (not just a T-shirt and ball cap) let alone bring some guns and enough ammo you…"
" I've been involved with Cowboy Fast Draw, single action revolver only and Buffalo Silhouette side matches since I got out of college, but am going to shoot my first SASS matches with an ad hoc battery this…"
"I bought my Rossi in the middle/late 1980s. The action was as smooth as my brother's Marlin 1894. After a few years of use, it smoothed out more. I'd compare it to a new Big Boy. Trigger pull was never more than 5.5 lbs, and after some…"
"Favorite was a Ruger .22 revolver. Versatile, easy to handle and maintain. That pistol gave me all the joy or Ralphie's Red Ryder BB gun. It was my rabbit slayer.
I have other firearms now. More powerful, semi…"
" I love that Plains Warrior tacked up Rossi! I need a pistol caliber levergun to complete my SASS shooting battery, and am weighing the Rossi against a Henry big boy, upon some glorious day when my budget allows for it.
" The .35 has a lot more hitting power, especially with some heavier loads. My uncle, a lefty, always hunted with an ancient Remington pump .35, and he's one of the best running deer shots I can think of. I helped…"
The definition of universe of course is open to your interpretation; could be your god, the physical universe, or maybe just your immediate environment/sphere of influence. I'm 27 and nearly 2 years into my career. I'm not happy. In fact I think I'm starting to loose my mind. A windlowless basement, unreliable car, no friends, no relatives around, and no woman isn't helping. I'm in no less financial debt than I was before I took this job. I'm no healthier. I've been called dumb too many times…See More
Any opinions on whether a man should just not give a seconds thought about todays politics?In my opinion, politics are for the privileged, educated people. My mother and father don't have the luxury of politics. And neither do I. When I wake up and come home from work I'm trying to make myself better. That last thing on my mind is poll numbers.Instead of people taking hard-lines on politics can't they just step back and work hard and be good honest people with integrity?An example would be my…See More
"Iron sharpens iron." A place for men to impact each other by debate and exchange of ideas. This is a group where no ideas are off limits. If your motto is, "I never talk about politics or religion," this group is probably not for you. A "gym" for thinkers.See More
"Yeah. I think I'm starting to feel this ora the universe is giving off. I'm at this point in my where I'm going a little crazy. I have a big decision to make and a lot of preparation. I think the universe is telling me to forget about…"
