    Varilux X Progressive lenses

    Thanks. It's really hard to find any decent reviews comparing them. I'm going to go with the Varilux X. It's a known quantity, and my optician was selling the Via Elite a little too strongly. I bet...

    I really shouldn't post in this thread, having no 1911s anymore. However, I have to point out that the tongue-and-groove joint in the Swenson style ambi safety is a common point of failure. I had one...

    I knew I had posted recently about this. So I searched for "expensive", "pain in the ass", "time suck", and "switching guns".

    Recently, a competitive shooter shot herself with her open gun on the draw. Fortunately it was fairly superficial to the outer thigh. But, this happened because she took the safety off and got on the...
  9. What makes you change your primary (and secondary) firearms?

    1) A massive disappointment resulting in a loss in confidence in the design or manufacturer. Hopefully that wonít happen again.

    2) Significant improvement in reliability or performance. Itís...

    I've had the NF rear on my main carry P-07 for 2 1/2 years of hard use. It's been excellent.

    Yes, lots to digest. I think this has been a good evolution of the thumb safety thread.

    Beginners guns: Glock, DAO auto or revolver seem like good choices. But without some basic safety procedures...

    Great points. From the civilian side as well, simpler is usually better. I don't think TDAs are beginners guns*, and the requirement of decocking is a major part of that.

    I find them very concerning. I don't think there is a reasonable alternative to a thumb safety in an AR. That doesn't mean it's not problematic in the same ways as for handguns.

  14. Thumb safety pros/cons (side conversation moved from 320 lawsuit thread)

    Get yelled at enough and itís fairly easy, I guess? Somehow my brain knows to use a rifle safety but knows not to on a pistol.

    I think this is a good thing to do in dryfire, while drilling a good...

    Safety engaged pretty much any time the rifle is not actually being fired.
  16. Thumb safety pros/cons (side conversation moved from 320 lawsuit thread)

    For those of you who donít go off safety during the draw: is your grip fully formed with safety off, or do you have to adjust grip tension after safety off?

    I have one on a P-07, and found the same thing. Despite warnings about possible need for fitting, my PM barrel drops into 3 P-07s with no problems, and no POI shift. A little extra velocity from the...

    I know all this has been discussed multiple times before, but it's never a bad idea to revisit central issues like safeties on handguns.

    Yes, and itís not good.

    EDIT: It depends on how good you want the brass to be. My .260 is my primary long range competition rifle. I have a butt-ton of Lapua brass for that reason. If you're not...

    2021 Tikka Catalog. A 6.5 PRC!

    I love .260. Other than mag length issues in AR-10s, it does everything better than 6.5CM.

    2021 Tikka Catalog. A 6.5 PRC!

    Thereís a lot to like in that catalog. The UPR looks very nice, at 7.5-8lbs. I agree that 6.5PRC is a welcome caliber. I am also glad to see that .260 Rem remains standard in most of their offerings.

    Competition gets you killed on the streets.

    There's no doubt that USPSA & IPSC have greatly advanced handgun shooting and technology. They are also an excellent testing ground for equipment. It's interesting to observe what doesn't work and...
