    Handguns
    Hey guys! I bought a Glock 30 in 45acp for carry a while ago. Since I sweat like a hooker in church during the summer I wanted a stainless guide rod and spring for my Glock. After some research I thought $60 was expensive. Fortunately Lone Wolf now offers them for as little as $30! Lone Wolf...
  4. PT945 or a 1911?

    Handguns
    After weeks of thinking I've finally decided on buying a Taurus for my first gun and I'm very happy with my purchase. Since it fits in my pocket, I carry it wherever I go and makes me feel safer.
