Enfield Rifles: Your Opinions Please

If you are getting one as a shooter, and will shoot it a lot, then the .308 is going to serve you better in long term costs. If you are collecting but not shooting, or only shooting occasionally, then pick the one that suits your eye the best and go with it. Cost should be considered as an investmen...

Casting bullets

Do cast bullets cause the barrel to lead up? If so, how do you remove it?

How To Shoot A Handgun Accurately

This is an excellent article on handgun shooting fundamentals, along with some ideas that are new to me but make sense. If you go to the link http://www.backwoodshome.com/articles2/ayoob85.html you can read the article with photos that demonstrate much of what is said here. How to shoot a handgun ac...

How many have a CHL?

When I first started carrying my wife looked at me kind of funny, but didn't say anything.

Now when we go out, she generally asks me if I am carrying - she feels better when I am.

Mens vs Womens Brains

My wife got a kick out of it, but she said that he failed to mention one box that all men find very special, probably because he was speaking to a family audience :)

I was told that he has other videos on youtube also, but I haven't checked it out yet.

Dallas Gun Show

I haven't done this myself, but I have looked into it. If you really want to get the best deals at a gun show - rent a table and sell something. Just enough to get you in the door as a seller - sell some old ammo or something. You can rent a table for about $75 if I remember correctly. Benefits: You...

Neat holster Idea (pretty cheap to)

A wee bit of vapor must have escaped my brain, I found a good use for the smart carry - when I am wearing sweat pants and moving around outside, like walking or yardwork. Works a treat then as it puts no weight on the sweats. Still not crazy about the barrel position, but logically it is as safe as ...

Dallas Gun Show

I went to the Dallas Gun Show yesterday with a friend of mine who is looking for another pistol. I only saw one P64 for sale, it was listed at about $190.00. I saw several PA-63 for sale, maybe half a dozen. They were in the $175 to $190 range. Last time I went there were more P-64s and fewer PA-63s...

Quick point

When I range qualified for my CHL, I shot a Star BM 9mm (Guardia Civil Surplus) that I had paid about $130 for, and was shooting nice tight groups, and in fact had qualifed well before the end of the session. The guy next to me was all over the silhoutte - he asked me what I was shooting so I showed...

Merry Christmas Everone!

A very Merry Christmas to all!

And I hope your new year is better than all the previous years put together, but not nearly as good as the ones yet to come!

Way to carry

You do want to keep the adrenaline surge in mind. I wish there was an effective way to train under an adrenaline rush, but there just isn't one. Adrenaline washes away your fine motor skills, and thinking ability, at the same time. Since you can't really train under adrenaline situations, the next b...

Just got a p64

I love my P64 - as a pocket carry pistol - but having large hands I do not enjoy shooting it much at all. It scratches the web between my thumb and index finger and has a bit of a sting to the recoil - I much rather shoot my 45 acp or 9mm at the range. BUT: for SD carry it can't be beat. In a SD sit...
