    I really wish that recoil springs and power factor could buy me even 1% improvement. Hell, I'd take 0.5%. But springs make no difference for me, and I've settled on #13 springs in my S2s and don't...

    My wife has old sewing machines, but just bought a Brother serger. I think that brand is cheap but good.
  3. Barrel/slide length in relation to recoil characteristics

    I agree with GJM, Leroy, and others. Longer slides don’t alway feel better but they shoot better in my hands. ‘How well a gun shoots’ is subjective unless measured quantitatively. My P-07s feel...

    Jeezus. I found myself holding my breath and waiting for one of them to get shot. I'm very glad no one was hurt.

    Glad to help. There are a lot of options, and I'm very much not a revolver guy--so get more opinions! There are still a lot of things I don't like about revolvers, but everything's a tradeoff. I was...

    I think it's very similar to .38+p, and maybe less annoying because the gun is steel and slightly heavier.

    tlong17, as a very semi-auto oriented person, I never expected to be carrying a 5-shot snubby as much as I do. It took some convincing, and practice. The snubby is now an important part of my CCW...

    Stride frequency is too fast for a cougar or larger animal. It's a housecat.

    Great points. The intersection of shooting skills, MUC, and combatives is where I want to spend more time. One of the most interesting training sessions I've had recently was with a DT/EP instructor....

    Agree. Doubles is great diagnostic tool. Here are the typical reasons my second shots in Doubles are off.

    -high: fire before returning the gun.
    -low: using too much muscle to return the gun....

    Damn. Lucky dog-and dude. Survey stake as an impact weapon wouldn’t be my first choice, but I guess it’s better than a sharp stick? Oh, wait.

    Grizzly Bear Defense

    I know a guy who got bit on the testicle by a funnel web spider in a porta John in Australia. Might be worse than getting bit on the ass by a black bear.

    That looks like a lot of scope for the money. A few key questions:

    -Is it truly 1x, with no or minimal...

    Yes, I saw that. One of the most important skills is knowing why a shot went off target. Was it bad aim, looking at the wrong spot? Or a bad trigger press? Pushing down on the gun? Unstable? If it's...

    DA push: I see this a lot. Experience trains the brain to return the gun after it fires. This leads to timing the firing cycle and predicting when a return is needed. That’s not a problem—until it...

    Mantis question

    Moylan, what HCM said is a very good suggestion. In my experience, pre-ignition push “pushing down on the gun” is by far the most common reason people don’t hit what they are aiming at. If the...

    My USPc had a very heavy DA pull. It was ok, but I wouldn’t choose it to take a high risk shot. 8# is the maximum I have on my TDA guns.
