    Gata naranja tried out both the Ruger and the SA 9mm compact 1911's side by side and could not pick a winner. Eventually, we were at a not-so-local LGS that happened to have a Springer in stock and a...

    I actually have the Magpul adaptor and an 870 Limbsaver pad, but I have yet to install them. Another of my "tomorrow" projects that has dragged on for months.

    I am glad to know it will be even...

    Despite their unimpressive steels and heat treatments (!) the old H&R 929 "snubbies" I used to plink with were no worse at extracting the el cheapo ammo I used to feed them than the last couple of...

    I have a circa 2016 5" 9mm SA Range Officer Operator that needed deburring and a bit of break-in shooting early on, but which is now trouble free.

    Not knowing when to leave things alone, I...

    I blew off getting a Magpul stock and forend for a long time, but once I finally put a set on my pet 870P I wished I had done it sooner. I still prefer the old factory furniture's less angular...

    After I purged the safes and shelves of any handgun not a 9x19 or .38/.357 - with the exception of .22LR - I felt remorse very seldom, and never enough to backslide. Interestingly, I was able to sell...

    It would also be nice to see a Rem choke, 18 in, 12 ga barrel with rifle sights available too. To get one, I had to have RAS thread an 870P RS barrel for Rem-Chokes some years back.

    The result...

    I clearly remember the day that I bought an all-steel 5" 9mm 1911 at an LGS and was standing there with my wife while we waited for the paperwork. Gata naranja was not particularly happy about this...

    I have owned a couple of Minis, but no longer have one. In fact, nobody in my circle still uses a Mini-14 to do anything but gather dust... but Mini Thirties are another story, and I get to tote one...

    You are pretty much describing me. What amazes me is the number of people nowdays who don't - or won't - get that "just want to be left alone" part. Some days I feel like I need to deliver a slightly...

    There was a time in my life when I did more plinking with a .36 cap & ball revolver than anything else- not because I was history-obsessed (which I was), but because I had a lot of free time, access...

    That was pretty much my experience back in the day. They generally* ran domestic 7.65 or 9mm FMJ okay as long as the magazines weren't derped. There were a lot of milsurps tucked way with no magazine...

    Three of my GPs retired on me over the years, and over time the catch-all phrase has changed from "Well, we're not getting any younger," to "Well, you're not getting any younger."

    I consider a good 870 to still be a pretty handy thing to have around, so I am interested.

    We had an 870 Marine Magnum in the house some years ago, and it was the slickest of the new, out-of-the-box 870s we have owned, though probably not NP3 slick. I remember hearing (take that for what...

    "Bulletproof" is a great marketing claim for small parts, but it loses its lustre when a $30 boutique component survives at the expense of a barrel, slide or serial-numbered component.

    I'm sure that will be more and more the case. A not insignificant number of newer/younger shooters have little experience beyond 10/22's, AR's and Glocks. I suppose it is probably a bit like the...

    Yeah, I was a bit vague there, and the people I know who own 1301's are generally pleased with the low level of ammo drama (hiccups so far seem to be with quite light weights of shot).

    Leverguns are lots of fun in .357 Magnum, and very friendly to the shoulder despite delivering plenty of close-up punch. I was heavy into them until my eye issues made the iron-sighted Win clones...
