Experiment

I just tried an experiment on my Zastava, Christian bought some Rustoleum "Hammered Finish" spray paint to put on his new wheel rims (he is fixing up an 88 Camaro he bought) and it looked pretty stout to me, I repainted my beat-up Mag Lite with it and it looked pretty good--so I painted the side pan...

Cleaning

What do you guys think of gear oil as a lubricant? I think mine is 95W-105 (just bought it to use on my new scooter).

Fave Nightstand Gun

I'm putting this thread here because I expect a variety of answers--but I have to say that for me, the P64 fits the bill perfectly. I leave it with a chambered round, safety off, like I do my Mak--it's still reasonably safe due to the rebounding hammer. If suddenly and fearfully awakened, I have onl...

10 year old first gun opinions?

I gotta plump for the ol' Savage, the youth model is a good size, even for me ( I'm finding that these days I'm a pretty small guy). I think the Cricket will be outgrown in a hurry. The Rossi matched pair sounds like a good choice to me too. My personal fave would be the old Stevens bolt-action I go...

Cobra Patriot 45

I see the occaional used model at one of the gunshops here ( I think it may actually be the same pistol sometimes--I suspect the owner sometimes takes a slow seller off the shelf for awhile and then puts it back on display..LOL!) usually priced at @ $250. Looks like a heckuva deal to me, it looks mu...

Zastava Mod 70

I like mine too--I keep thinking about trading it in, but I pick it up and it fits so well into my hand..besides, my gun shop's blue book doesn't list it, so they won't take it in trade anyway! LOL! I just wish it had a half-cock, so I would feel safe keeping one in the tube. I found out I could rac...

Worst single action trigger I have ever felt

I shouldn't say this, but i never tire of hearing those stories. In the circles I run in, the guys (the ones with the safari vests, LOL!) carry Kimbers and Springfields, maybe the occasional Glock or Sig, and I sometimes feel kind of deprived with my mostly milsurp, all-under-$300 collection--but no...

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!

Had a great 4th, fireworks, homemade ice cream--but it meant a bit more this time, with the Supremes finally laying some of the nonsense about the 2nd Amendment to rest..

New user, new FEG, and some questions

Belated welcome, jagged! Glad someone else carries a .32, for a long time my primary was a Zastava 70 in .32, the P64 has taken over as my primary due to it's marginally better concealablity.

Fanny packs

I have a friend who carries with a fanny pack--and yes, I assumed he was carrying the first time I noticed it on him, it was partly assumptions about sexual differences and partly because in the circles I and this guy run in, almost all the menfolks carry (and now that you mention it, safari vests a...
