My sons and I have been listening to the podcasts of this show in the car lately. We’re heading out to Yellowstone in a week, and I plan on bringing many of the podcasts with me to listen to on the way.

Overall, it is a good show. My only wish is that Tom would spend more time on firearms, equipment, and technique, and less time on political discussion and various organizations. But that’s just a minor quibble - I love the show.

I had not heard about it either.

I was at the Conoco station a few miles from my house the other day and they were talking about a robbery that took place the day before. The clerk got shot in the back, but the store owner came out of the back of the store and managed to hit one of the thugs before they got away. He said he emptied his mag and didn’t have his spare with him.

Bang!

Came this '' close to buying a shotgun today.

Stopped by Gander Mountain on my way to the hardware store. They've got a Rossi 12 Ga 3" chamber single shot with a 23 inch rifled barrel. Barrel is even ported. Has very nice factory rifle sights and has a factory rail for mounting a scope or red dot on it. Has cheek rest synthetic stock and sling swivel mounts.

It's in such good condition I was surpised to see that it had a "Used Gun" tag on it. They're asking $199 for it. (MSRP for new is $319.00. Looking around the web I see they typically sell for $250 - $285)

Looks like this: Photobucket

The significant other has already kind of given me the go ahead on getting it. What do you guys think? Anyone got experience with them? Do I just have buck fever?

Good evening folks

Have y’all seen the video from the Garden Grove Jewelry Store holdup? The one with the 65 year old owner firing at the holdups?

Last week, several of you gave me some great feedback regarding potential choices for a 9MM.

I went to a local indoor range that has rentals, and tried out a few. They had a good assortment of 9's for rental use... Sigs, Glocks, Berettas, Kahr etc. (none of which I had time to try).

I did shoot three nice pistols.
First was the CZ-75. I have to admit- I was impressed. Felt very comfortable, even in my small hands. After figuring out the sights with the first round, I was all 9s and 10s on the target. Target re-acquisition after each round was easy and almost instinctive.
Next I tried the XD. I have no doubt that it's a fine weapon, but I never got comfortable with the grip safety. Had one stove-pipe, and several "failure to feed", but I'm certain that was my fault, not the gun.
Finally, the range employee suggested I try a Dan Wesson 1911 chambered in 9MM. All I can say is "WOW". Granted it was only seven yards, but I was tearing up the 10 ring. I don't have the funds for something like that, but it sure was a joy to try out.

At least now I'll have a little more info when I go to the gun show in a couple of weeks. All things being equal, if I can find a private seller with a good price on the CZ, I think I'm convinced that is a good way to go.

Again, thanks to all who chimed in last week.

I found out today that my Kahr does not like Speer Lawman 9mm 115gr TMJ. Had about 3 failures to feed. The 124gr Winchester NATO FMJ I was shooting did not seem to have a problem.

I think maybe the 115gr bullet is too pointy or something. What do you think?

Didn’t you say you picked up a Solo? If so, have you had it long enough to give a report? It looks pretty appealing to me, but I heard early models had some problems.

Very Cool deo, glad you found a go to gun that fits you.

I don’t think you can go wrong with a Dan Wesson. They are fine weapons.

I'm down to about 14 handguns and while I carry a Glock daily, nothing is more accurate and comfy on the range than my 1911's. Every man needs at least one.

Single shot appears to be getting more common on slug guns. (Not sure why.)

I do know from experience, the first shot counts in deer hunting. Any subsequent shots after that are just spray and pray because by then they are running 220 MPH away from ya.

I gotta agree with mylife on this. Single shot?

You can get Pardner Protector new for the same $$$

Check out the reviews on the web. Most are very good. I have 2 of them and would agree with most reviews.

The “problem” was the same problem I had putting it back together incorrectly after cleaning. The assembly is a cross between a Glock and 1911. So I thought since I have both I thought I knew what I was doing. When I called Kimber to complain I could tell they get the same call probably every day. When you replace the slide stop there is a tiny retention spring that has to be captured in a grove on the slide stop. With my old eyes I didn’t see it until they pointed it out. It’s the only thing that is different than a 1911 and a Glock.

Breaking in the first 200 rounds ZERO fail, after I put it back together incorrectly 90% fail, the next 400 rounds ZERO fail.
