I bought a Kestrel 556 the other day. Now the long wait for it to get to my FFL/form 4 wait :bawling:
Glad I picked up a couple more G20 mags from Midway right after SH, before they disappeared. I was slow on the draw for grabbing AR parts though.
I traded some reloading dies I wasn't using for about 1500 rounds of once fired .40 brass from a guy on a local forum. I buy my 10mm brass new though. I shoot it hot enough that I only use new brass, the used stuff is saved and will be used for weak loads at some point.
Local gun forums are a...
It depends if you hate open diffs on the street too. If it doesn't bother you, ARB for sure. I hate driving on the street and punching the throttle only to have 1 tire spin and go nowhere fast, so I like auto lockers. I really like the Aussie in my B2, but a Detroit or Zip is a stronger option.
I don't really care about printing much, 99% of the general populations is too oblivious to notice.
Carrying my G20 in it's Old Faithful holster is more comfortable than carrying my XDsc in it's High Noon holster and there's virtually no difference in printing between the two.
Since we were on the topic of holsters, I just got my molded kit from Old Faithful Holster for my G20. The kydex comes molded and the clip holes are punched in the leather but that's it. So I trimmed up the kydex and drilled the holes and assembled it. I'm pretty happy with it for $40 shipped...
"Knockdown power of a bull"
Really? A 2000lb bull at 30FPS is 2,798,507 ft/lbs of energy.
I'd say they're about 2,797,507 ft/lbs off.
EDIT: Derp, I read that way wrong.
Either way, that article isn't even worth wiping my ass with.
But the fact is the height difference is negligible. A standard 1911 is 5.5" tall, an XD sub compact for example is 4.75", 0.75" really doesn't make much difference in concealability. Add grip extension on the XD if you like using your pinky and the difference is an 1/8". A Ruger LCP on the...
Not really, the thinness is actually nicer than a lot of other guns for carry. My G20 or my old 4.5" XDm isn't really much harder to conceal than an XD Sub compact. It's not really until you get into pretty small guns where there's a big difference, like the LCP, LC9, PPS, ect IMO.
