Re: Thoughts and hopes for those in the way of Irma

Yeah I remember hearing about how long it took to get services back to areas. Glad this time was not nearly as bad.

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

Well please do all you can to keep the ammo companies open. Seriously, I too have a Commander and I can conceal it with the right clothing but that clothing is.not always practical. And the power to size ratio on the P64 is quite good. And Frankly I like it better than the Walther.

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

Oh Darn! I have to practice with my sidearms! Such a hardship! Lol. I wish all practice at learning was as much fun.
Really nice thing is the P64 dissapears on your person like no 1911 ever could come close to doing.

Re: Tula Ammo

I am.sorry you have to deal with The Peoples Republic of Kalifornia BS. Persomally I think I would be moving but I understand there are other forces at work there. So yeah, Brown Bear ammo is great for practice. In fact, my bet is it is nothing more than repackaged military spec ammo off the same pr...

Re: Finally took the P64 to the range

Nice work. And frankly, this pistol is not designed for any kind of serious work much beyond 8 yards.

Re: Tula Ammo

Brown Bear is great for practice, but I like the Silver bear HP's for general use as they are very close to as cheap as the Brown bear ball and can be used as self defence if need be. I have water tested them and they will expand in water realably.

Re: Thoughts and hopes for those in the way of Irma

we are all happy your home and all is well. And tell your son that you will believe that the next time a monster like Irma has you in it's sights. You should take him through some of the hard hit areas then ask him if he still wants to try and ride one out. OG, there seems to be a lot of questions a...

Re: Is concealed carry safe with one in chamber and safety on shoot?

Glad to help. Hopefully it helps keep you safe.
It is the biggest thing that I like about this group of people, answers to stuff you did not know given by people that do. And given in a courteous manner.

Re: Tula Ammo

GuitarmanNick, try Hornady Critical Defense. I was very very impressed with expansion tests I did, although granted in water, but have seen them done in gel. The round always expands, period.

Re: Is concealed carry safe with one in chamber and safety on shoot?

Firstly, use the decocker, when it is used it raises a solid piece of steel into the path of the hammer keeping it from having ANY possibility of making contact with the firing pin. Pulling the trigger while holding the hammer and lowering it that way does not place that piece of steel in the hammer...
