    Same price as a Mossberg 590A1?!

    A friend asked me about the Mossberg 590A1 and when I looked on Gunbroker...most of the "buy now" guns are priced the same or within $100 of a 1301. What is going on!?!

    ...after years of following...

    Nice rifle!

    You might also consider:
    1. Shooting mat
    2. Spotting scope
    3. Bore guide
    3. Bipod (maybe)

    The shooting mat is good if you're planning to do a lot of work from prone -- laying...

  4. About those gravel pits

    Very good point. Gravel pits have accidental dangers as well as predator dangers. For the noob folks, a gravel pit is where Platt and Mattix picked up a car they used in the first of their (known)...

    More on the Oakland shooting

    Article goes on to say that the owner had a valid carry permit. Report claims that the escaping assailants almost hit the shop owner with their vehicle, and that's when he fired.

    How on Earth does a person go to a match and just refuse to participate in certain stages?!

    Eye opening

    I've been looking for more science on cougars and how they interact with wildlife and people. Thanks for this.

    I don't know what it's like at your house

    But being inside at my house isn't anything like serving a sentence at a penitentiary. Comparing a life sentence at a prison to being at home and going for walks is some absurd nonsense. Get a grip.

    Couple points

    1. Making it expensive to practice means people can't shoot well and are a threat to others in a self defense situation. Politicians say that they support people owning guns for self defense, just...

    Yes

    That was my thought also. If anything, sling shotting the slide would seem to cause greater slide velocity given that the slide will travel a longer distance than the release from slidelock.

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks everyone. I was pretty surprised by the instructions, but I've been out of the shooting game for some years (probably 7 or 8 years since I last took a class). I thought that perhaps something...

    Use of slide lock is unsafe?

    Hi,
    Had a safety question. While shooting at a range, I was told that when reloading a pistol I should not release the slide with the slide lock because it was unsafe and could cause the pistol to...

    My experience mirrors AJZ's. My recoil control got much worse and I developed a flinch, I think because I got away with gripping the airsoft pistol very lightly. I spent about 6 to 9 months...

    If I'm remembering right, Louis Awerbuck during the classroom part of his classes used to use a 1911 converted to non-firing status (dummy solid barrel) and I think that makes a lot of sense.
