  1. I was in the same position not very long ago. I finally wound-up with a SLR adjustable gas block and intermediate length gas system. WOA, Noveske, Compass Lake and a few others all make Int. length barrels
  2. Second the Dawson recommendation for tuning front sight height. If you have a caliper, the Dawson site would give you the formula to plug your numbers into. You could also call them, and they'll help you out. Another option is to try different bullet weights. Keep in mind that the VP9 will make best use of combat style sight picture, it is not a target gun made to shoot little tiny groups. (#3 here)
  3. https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_detail&p=388 or https://www.amazon.com/Frontiersman-Spray-Holster-Access-Strength/dp/B072Q4KBSX OC bullets are a novelty at best.
  4. Were you expecting everyone to be on the same page as yourself? You'll notice that people have varying degrees of tolerance for "2A rights"; with some demanding absolutely no restrictions whatsoever and others believing that some level of vetting is prudent. Most fall somewhere in-between an outright ban on all firearms over .22 and allowing for private ownership of ICBMs.
  5. Very talented storyteller and chef. I disagreed with him on most political positions, but I bet he would be a great guy to knock-back a few with.
  6. Drivers who will follow closely behind you at 20 mph over the speed limit, but don't have the sand to pass you when you slow down and move over.
  7. Firearm - both rifle and handgun.
  8. I might get flamed here, oh well. I have absolutely no problems with guns being removed, FID forfeited, etc. due to a restraining order. If they are being granted frivolously, then that is something that should be addressed and corrected. But otherwise, if someones wife/daughter/sister/mother feels that their only protection against harassment (or worse) is a restaining order, then it should be taken seriously and every precaution made until a hearing is had.
  9. +1 on the Wilson version. Beautiful gun.
  10. As with any other firearm, you choose the load to accomplish the task at hand. I've used a .357 numerous times as a trail gun when hunting out west, but it be loaded with Buffalo Bore 180gr. hardcasts. Rifle is usually attached to my pack without a round in the chamber; and while it only takes a few seconds to get it ready for a shot, a bear or lion may not give you that much time. Hence a loaded and holstered handgun. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that they will handle bears just fine. As a matter of fact, if the area I am hunting doesn't have grizzlies, then I'll substitute a G23 with 200gr hardcasts.
  11. 2nd time shooting and already at 150 yards with a 9mm. Very impressive!
  12. Just finished it up, and technically my first AR build. 18" SPR barrel on Noveske matched upper and lower. Scope is a Steiner 3-15x50. Haven't gotten to shoot at distance yet, still breaking-in the barrel, but hopefully will get it stretched out in the next few months.
  13. Huh? Can you cite some reference to this please?
  14. Took it a bunch of times today. And finally: 35/35 Booyah!
  15. I've heard nothing but good things about the CZ rimfires. For the price, I don't think you can get a better quality rimfire. Don't get into the whole switchbarrel thing, its an added cost the will very rarely if ever be needed. Don't let others dissuade you from getting a bolt gun for your first .22. Contrary to popular belief, a Mark series and a 10/22 are not the end-all be-all for rimfires. I bought a Kimber 82 Hunter many years ago, and do not wish for a semi ever. I would say that it would be the ideal rifle for you, but they are not made anymore. The CZ is very close.
