Also, this is overdue but my Raven Concealment holster for my VP9 finally showed up:
I have been toying with the idea of picking up VP9. What is your review of it?
I'm a fan, it replaced an M&P in .357SIG.
The ergos are great, especially with the interchangeable side panels and backstraps. The trigger is great and the recoil is light, even with defensive loads. I'd love a couple of extra rounds in the mag, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I have the LE model with the factory night sights and they're excellent. The front of the rear sight is flat so you can use it for manipulating the slide in an emergency. Overall, I highly recommend one.
Who makes that? Smith?
The one in the pictures is a Heckler and Koch.
It replaced a Smith and Wesson M&P.
Oooh, got it. Looks good.
It's their new striker fired pistol, it's almost identical to a P30 except striker instead of hammer fired.
They're going after Glock in a big way with this, and it's priced very well for an HK. This was 699 retail, so a little more than a new Glock but almost 400 less than a comparable P30.
Wow. HK is usually super high priced. I want a Mk 23 SOCOM bad. But $2200 is way too much for a pistol.
Depends on the pistol
Updated collection shot. Just picked up the Mosin yesterday. Hooray for cosmoline.
I am picking up a Mosin too. Anyone have any experience in the Russian 440 rounds cans of ammo?
I have a small, but growing, collection of plinkers.
Top to bottom:
20 Gage Winchester
.223 Remington 700
.22 Winchester Model 61
45-70 Marlin 1895
.22 Ruger MKIII
.45 Ruger 1911
And just picked this up over the weekend
.22 Smith and Wesson M&P15-22
On a side note, the only thing I don't like about the S&W is that when the trigger is released you can't put the safety on, which is why it's off in this picture.
Cosmoline is the glitter of the gun world. You'll never completely get rid of that crap...
I believe that's an AR specific trait, I'd have to double check on my LMT when I get home.
I have a winchester model 61 also, fun little plinker. What kind of Mount did you use for the scope?
ARs are designed like that. In honesty the safest storage for a M4/M16/AR is with the trigger pulled/hammer upright. Selector switch only works on a charged weapon. If you can move it after its been fired it's an unsafe weapon and should be looked at.
If your shooting at an indoor range they are a no go. Steel cored and such. Also corrosive, so clean very quickly after firing. Otherwise they are a perfectly suitable round for firing. Just make sure yourburm is high and thick. They will penetrate deep (take from that what you will).
Until I picked up the AR the model 61 has been my go-to for reliable plinking. To be honest I'm not 100% sure who makes the mount, I think it's from Weaver but I'll double check. It was originally my grandfathers gun so he set it up and passed it down to me .
I think it's strange that safety's are different from one gun to the next. For example, my Marlin 1895 wont let me put the safety on when the hammer is all the way down, however I can put the safety on when its half-cocked. I just find it kind of annoying when you go pull something out of the safe to show your buddy and you have to explain why the safety is off, some people are pretty antsy about that kind of thing.
Yes. My wife is one of them. My Sig has no external safety. she hates it. If I show people my weapons it's just habit now, regardless of safety setting, I clear it twice and hand it to them open.
Yeah that's pretty much the way to go.
How do you like the SR1911???? I've read great reviews on that pistol. It's high on my list of guns to pick up.
It's been an awesome pistol! It feels great in-hand in both balance and weight. I've only had two issues with mine, the first was the trigger came loose and started to 'jingle' after 50 rounds, and second was a feed issue. I sent it back to Ruger to have them look at both problems, they fixed the trigger and fired 30 rounds through it without being able to recreate the jamming issue. I had it jam a few more times after I got it back, but after putting 500 rounds through it the problem seems to have stopped. I think the issues I experienced were flukes and not normal for any 1911. I would buy this again even with the problems I experienced.
My small collection...for now.
From top to bottom:
Marlin model 795 .22 cal
Winchester model 61 .22 cal
Browning auto 5 16 gauge
Colt 1911 3 1/2" barrel .45 acp
Norinco model 54-1 7.62x25 Tokarev
That's a nice collection that you have started. I did a little investigating and the scope mount on my 61 is almost identical to this Leupold (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/1362103959/leupold-standard-scope-base-winchester-70). It's for a different model but the shape and size is closely related to what I have on mine. I did some searching on the Leupold site to see if they make anything for the Model 61 and they don't show anything in current production.
Now lets talk about that 16 gauge, I haven't seen one of those in a hot minute! What's the story behind that?
It was my grandfather's. I believe it was manufacturered in the 1950's.I'd have to check on that to be sure. Fun skeet shooter
I'm at my parents in Wisconsin this weekend and thought I would share the small collection of guns that my family regularly shoot on visits.
Top to bottom-
Remington single shot .22
Howa Model 1500 in .270
Winchester model 670 in 30-06 fully floated barrel, when my Dad was in the Army and regularly shot this was consistently hitting 3" groups at 300 yards.
Ruger M77 with a full Mannlicher stock in .308
Winchester model 64 lever action in 25-35, unfortunately this gun is for display only and we have never shot it
Wards Western model 60 pump in 20ga.
Ruger Red Label over and under in 12ga.
Winchester model 1200 in 12ga
Remington 870 Wingmaster in 12ga
Harrington & Richardson Topper 158 in .410
My dad also has a TC contender with a .223, 6.8, and 35 rem barrels.
Just found out that a bunch of neckbeards from /k/ go out and shoot to pine city in the summer.
Idk how I feel about that
That video may have given me cancer. The levels of unsafe is....hmm
Yeah and apparently a couple of them teach safety courses and carry classes.
Scary...I counted at least 3 people that flagged each other with weapons. The level of accuracy made my face sad also. So many rounds off target. I get its just a burn off, but still...take some time to aim and be proficient.
Wow, so much fail in that video I can't even wrap my head around it. Crap form, zero accuracy and a bunch of neckbearded mall ninjas. Why the **** was the cameraman forward of the firing line? Reminds me of some of the crap James Yeager has pulled through the years.
Clearly there is no risk of a stray round. People sitting underneath others, all firing. This why people hate gun owners. Right there. No safety at all.
Always be my favorite carry:
If you liked that, you'll love this:
My hand hurts looking at that photo.
Oof. You know, that's why tripods exist....
Some things are surprising me less and less these days. People are getting permits to purchase firearms that are in no way well trained or safe with them.
I know, they even gave me one! Dumbarses!
I printed mine off the computer and laminated it with scotch tape.
Laminated...that is a great idea! Mine is hand written.
We just printed our youngest son off his ccw.
Whats the big deal... Brian you remember when Taras came down to my place and we filmed this video.. right?! Ya me neither hahaha
oh baby. You are beautiful!
I've got a Surefire SOCOM2 can on order, it'll be a few months before I can take delivery though.
SRB stamp is coming first. I want to shoulder that awesome thing before I make it quiet. 9mm is pretty quiet anyways.
youd prefer ISIS??
A Sig just followed me home today. Got rid of a few to make HER happy. Fill size, Sig 320 in .40 S&W. It feels very nice in my paws.
