    I did NOT get an e-mail notification that any were available, but learned about it, here. I went to site, and saw that two were still available. I put them in my cart, but...

    The typically-SIG high bore axis, present in the P220-series and derivative pistols, and at least some other SIG model lines, was/is not the best platform to be shooting .40 S&W, for those of us with...

    Fully-cocked striker? Not SCD-able? For a carry gun, or any gun with which I may be moving about, in a fast or strenuous way, I think I’ll pass. A hard pass. Even a “Condition Zero” 1911 still has a...

    Revolving pistols, of course. Making hammers thumb-able, on repeating pistols, since the 1830s. :cool:

    Well, USB-C charging is a start, in the right direction. I absolutely loathe micro-USB.

    Of course, I am still shying-away from Streamlight, due to a run of bad luck in the Eighties and Nineties,...

    I have bigger financial fish to fry, in FY 2021 and FY 2022, than buying more firearms, and, especially, should avoid adding more long guns, as I already need to add another safe, to hold the ones we...

    One “advantage” of getting older, is that I do not need very much centerfire handgun ammo, because I have aged-out of high-round-count shooting sessions. By age fifty, I had to minimize shooting .40...

    Good to see this. I am especially glad for those retirees who were not issued properly-worded retirement creds.

    Personally, I was hoping to see something about a temporary waiver of the need to...

    Interesting.

    Every time I think about trying a smaller-than-Government 1911, again, after swearing-off of them about two decades ago, y’all pull me back from the brink. :)

    Some of us are in that second queue, still awaiting our first Phlster Enigma.

    I did finally manage to acquire a J-Frame Phlster City Special, which has been another long-term out-of-stock...

    The Glock Gen3, Gen4, and Gen5 point well, in my hands. The Gen4 and Gen5 with no back-strap adapters in place, are a much better fit than the Gen3 and earlier. Pre-Gen3 Glocks tend to point low for...

    I traded three Gen4 Glock G19 pistols in 2020. They had been disused since early 2018, as my right hand had aged-out of using compact Nines, which meant that there would be no going-back to using...

    I have notably more 9mm than .38 Special or .357 Mag available, for both training and carry, so a pre-owned RBH, with both cylinders, on the website of a local gun store, really captured my...

    That would be a good thing to research.

    OTOH, those of use who use rentals, or employers’ vehicles, probably should maintain the awareness of the auto-lock/unlock.

    I was referring to the UN-locking that happens when the gear selector is moved to “P.” We need to be ready to immediately RE-lock, manually.

    This, so very much.

    Auto-unlocking has, of course, become a normal thing, at least with vehicles having automatic transmissions. We can/should learn to re-lock, immediately, as needed, whenever...

    As I see it, a side mount defeats the inherent slimness of the lever rifle. Slimness is a very significant reason for me to want to use a lever rifle.
