  1. Kel Tec PF9

    I recently got myself a Kel Tec PF9. Contrary to rumors, the one that I bought (traded for at a gun shop) new runs flawlessly. Yes, I know. It's not an expensive gun, nor is it crafted with very expensive materials. I have had several rim-fire handguns (both revolvers, and semi-auto pistols)...

  4. My new Ruger LC9 safety

    I'm about to be stationed in California, so when I bought my handgun I wanted to make sure it was loaded with all the superfluous safety features that California requires. I chose the Ruger LC9. It comes with a 1911-style safety that theoretically keeps the slide from racking; however, with the...

    I have and EAA witness -p 40 cal that I am having issues with. I shoot it one time and the slide jams back. I then hit it on my carpeted floor and it goes back to normal.

    Single-Shot Handguns
    Hi guys and gals.This is my first post and I have a PBR in hand but no guns in site so don't worry; I'm safe. (is that the correct way to use a semicolon?). So I used to be on a rifle team and I'm a real accuracy snob. That said I'm no pro or military guy, just a normal joe schmo who likes...
  8. Taurus carry gun/home defense gun

    I'm planning on buying a new handgun from Taurus. My options are the PT92, PT1911 and model 689. I'm also considering a Shooters Arms Military 1911 and a Norinco factory enhanced 1911, though not made from Taurus. What would you recommend among the 5? Appreciate it!

    Handgun Cartridges
    I'm getting into 44 magnum handloads very soon and being the lazy individual that I am, I just want one or two bullets for the Ruger Redhawk. I know H110 is the powder of choice for heavy bullets in the 44 but what do you veterans suggest for the bullets? I'm planing on using Hornady 300gr XTPs...

    Anyone ever heard of Extreme Impact Ammo ( I hunt game and found that they sell Buffalo Bore at the lowest price (both online and in store). I plan to stock-up before season but want to know if anybody else can find a better rate than this. It's almost too good to be true, or...

    Can anybody verify that those Ruger/ TC Only loads can be fired out of newly produced New Model Ruger Blackhawks in .45 Colt? I just bought one in 7 1/2" to pair with a Marlin 1894. The intent was to be able to load for the rifle without destroying the pistol like what would happen if I...
