    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

    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.
  15. I think there has been a sudden uptick in boating accidents, given the fact that many members here are boat enthusiasts as well. It really begs the question, why are gun owners such sh!tty boat operators?

    First time AR owner needs guidance

    I took mine out for the first time in 10k rounds or so and it was pretty "alright". I only opened that up to change the spring purely as precaution. Ran fine before & after. If yours is loading up with brass so much that every outing you need to disassemble the extractor, I think you should invest in a new extractor.

    S&W warranty repair

    Yes, the date is accurate, the slightly expanded story does address that nuance. When I discovered the frame cracks, I figured it was a long shot to begin with but it cost ya nothing to try! So I called them and they dated the gun to 1983. The gent on the phone promptly explained about the lifetime warranty starting in 1989. He said they would like to see the gun anyways and to send it in. I knew at that point they had an "out" for fixing/replacing the gun so I wrote them a compelling letter to include with the gun about how much I love S&W, and about how i've had two (at that point) glowing experiences that I tell everyone about in regards to their customer service. Then I got the phone call after they checked it out offering the replacement gun. I think I just got lucky. As you stated, they do not have any obligation to warranty pre 1989

    S&W warranty repair

    S&W has hands down the best customer service i've ever experienced, and I've experienced it about 3 times. First I screwed up my 1911 by trying to drive the extractor pin out, which is pressed in (apparently...). Certainly not manufacturer defect, more like a brain defect on my part. They replaced the extractor, the pin, cleaned the slide, returned it in 2 weeks no charge. Then the gun fell off a shelf and broke the front sight fiber. I decided to test their service. Sure enough, new front fiber, 2 weeks, no charge. Then I broke the frame on a 1983 S&W 469. 2 weeks later they informed me that regretfully they don't have 469 frames on hand, but wondered if I would be satisfied with a brand new M&P 9. Long story short, they rock

    Green tip ammo

    While im sure it's not allowed at pretty much any indoor range, a dirt berm doesn't care if it's having green tips shot at it. Should be good to go at most outdoor ranges.

    Time to get a FFL03

    I'm just bustin' your chops for mentioning mitchells mausers and milsurp in the same sentence, them being bastardized and all... all in good fun

    First time Shooting Woes

    First time handgun owner, are you also new to handgun shooting? Guns do funny things if they are limp wristed, usually FTE but anything is possible. If you're trying it again anyways ensure you have a firm and proper grip.

    Bad day at the match

    Sh!t happens when you party naked
  24. Hey guys! So, long story short, my wife and I are contestants on the upcoming shooting reality TV show, "Shot To The Heart". Apparently there is a "special prize" for the couple (there's only two other couples) that get the most likes, shares, and comments on social media. I ask for your support in this venture by going to https://www.facebook.com/shottothehearttv/ and also their instagram @shottothehearttv and liking/sharing/commenting on the post that features Liz and I (I to the extent that you have time to spare) If you're interested in watching, the details can all be found on the shows website here http://www.shottotheheart.com/ THANK YOU EVERYONE for your help and support. I can't wait to post my experience afterwards! We're flying down to Texas in July for filming and I believe it will air around February 2019.

    NJ Compliance Work Needed

    Tier 1 Defense in Union or Modern Materiels in Keyport, both are just under an hour from Princeton. Not sure of any shops closer but both those guys do top notch work.
