    John Wick 3, what’s he going to carry?

    Well, Taran's been flashing around some new 2011s....

    AR sling

    My vote is for the vickers 2 point padded. My purpose is competition, your mileage may vary. I have QDs on my shotgun as well allowing me to use it for both.

    Show Your Custom Handguns

    This is my build by Angus @ CZ Custom. It's a bull shadow slide/barrel on a shadow 2 frame with adjustable sights milled in, a fiber front, #11 recoil spring, SA trigger, magwell, & LOK grips. It's my racegun. Weighs around 50oz, makes 1911s feel light. It's in 9x19 and it recoils completely flat. Photo cred to my awesome wife!

    3 Gun Holster...

    GLS is better since it's passive retention. It comes out when you grab the gun, but it does not come out otherwise (and I have had myself/gun upside down on a stage before and also have fallen with it) I have and have competed both with a CZ75b SA, which shares holsters with the SP01 since it doesn't have the lightened front end of the slide like a regular 75b. It fits GREAT in this holster which is mentioned above https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00UTMDT2U/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I also have a (Bull) shadow 2, which requires the slightly wider one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FIK1SX4/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Buying my 1st AR Upper. Have some questions

    Here are my thoughts point for point: 1). No, both are the same gas system so you're talking about a meaningless velocity difference in between the two and 1.5" of length. If a teeny bit of weight or length doesn't have a huge importance to you then 16" will be the most cost effective. 2.) Flip sights are easier for future upgrades if you decide you want to do optics. This way if the front sight tower annoys you, you fold it down or remove it. With the fixed FSB, you could always cut off the tower and cold-blue it turning it into a poor mans low profile gas block so you aren't 100% locked into your choice should you go a different route in the future. However, with these short barrels, you may want a longer handguard and longer handguards on short barrels typically go beyond the gas block. which means the fixed FSB is a no-go That being said I would encourage you to do the upper that isn't the fixed FSB, or plan on cutting the fixed FSB down on the 14.5 right away and putting on a good handguard right off the bat. 3.) It's a "good" hand guard. Better than a plain plastic hunk 4.) Last time I bought a BCM upper, I HAD to get the 14.5" as it's the only length they pin comps on (since it's a fed thing). Maybe they'll do it for a 16" (phone call?) since they clearly have the capability, but I don't think they offer it up front. The 14.5" has a lug that would need removing, the 16" does not. You can receive it with the lug, it is not a firearm.

    Ear Pro upgrade options?

    Ear Pro upgrade options?

    I use these and I like them a lot. I can't tolerate over the ear headphones with long guns but I wanted electronics so this is were I landed and they are nice! https://www.ebay.com/p/3M-Peltor-Tep-100-Tactical-Digital-Earplug/9011945909?iid=372364584536&chn=ps

    1301 Update

    Not if you practice

    A 12G for shotgun sports

    Ray, I don't understand why you make a semi auto malfunction sound impossible. I've seen then cleared hundreds of times with other peoples guns in matches. Most of them are cleared in 2-3 seconds or less. If you train so hard that you will never fail a pump gun, why don't you also train how to clear a malfunction? This is all not taking into consideration that while a firearms mechanical reliability won't drop under stress, that doesn't mean your ability won't drop. And you need more ability to run a pump gun under stress.

    A 12G for shotgun sports

    I used to have the same belief, but I've come to learn that in practice a pump is less reliable. Not due to the shotgun itself, but under pressure they are prone to operator failure via short strokes. So, maybe a pump is 99.9% mechanically reliable and a good auto is 99% mechanically reliable. However, unless you wrap your hand around the bolt while you're shooting, you're not going to have stress induced failure with an auto. In practice, it winds up making the pumps more prone to failure. It's not the guns fault, but it's a failure nonetheless and both equipment and operator failure will kill you just as dead. Zeke, as far as 930 love, none here. I've seen it fail Jerry a bunch of times and while I wasn't at world shoot, I did see the video of Lena's breaking in half mid-stage over there. If I recall correctly, it's because she wound up having to mortar it after a malfunction. She cleared the malfunction and then the stage after the gun broke completely in half.

    A 12G for shotgun sports

    3-gun shotguns are great all-around shotguns due to the demands of the sport. They aren't pistol-gripped for quicker loading (great for NJ since they are all legal then) They are reliable if you pick one that isn't a mossberg 930 They all are set up with removable chokes and a rib-bead sight arrangement Barrel length is "moderate", 24" is standard, making them handy enough for home defense, long enough for the clay sports. They have big oversized controls for easy manipulation So, it just comes down to which one you want. The major players are the Benelli M2 field, the stoeger m3k/m3000, the beretta 1301 comp, and the Breda B12i. All of those except the Beretta are inertia driven. Inertia guns knock you around a little more than gas operated (Beretta) guns, but they tend to have more simple maintenance. Pick your poison. I shoot the 1301, I regularly shoot over 1k shells in-between cleanings and to this day have not had a malfunction. I've put a few dozen flats of shells through it. It shoots like a dream. I'll take it out for sporting clays as well, and it certainly will not handicap you. Keep in mind the 1301 is the same thing as the A400 mechanically speaking. Here's my wife with it at Nationals last year

    Question about non-threaded AR-15 barrels

    Maybe it sounded loud because other shooters had longer barrels, but apples to apples with barrel length, the nude muzzle is the quietest usually. Compared against a braked 16" barrel, I bet it would sound a lot quieter

    Has anyone congratulated Rosey?

    Mid length gas for free

    Mid length for sure! The gun will function smoother and you will have the ability to make quicker follow up shots.
