Re: UMAREX Makarov CO2 pistol range report

I think you will like it. I have had one for two weeks and it is fun and accurate as I am, which is not saying much. But it does pretty good and good practice with. I was going to go with a faster one but when I saw the Mak had to have it. It is a bit noisy but I shoot it when the neighbors are not ...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Not sure were to start! Has anyone had a problem with getting grips from Dennis? Ordered in Dec 11, they show as still processes in Budapest a month later and can get no response from Dennis. I processed mail before retirement and had the tracking checked, these grips have not touched US soil anD 3...

Re: Crossbreed

I just ordered a White Hat Holster which is the same as the Crossbreed only a bit cheaper or the same price for horsehide as cowhide. The main reason I ordered from them is you can also order extra Kydex for another holster for 19.95. They have the same velcro clip options which show nothing on your...

Marschal Beavertail Grips

I need another set of Marschal grips and am leaning towards the beavertail grip and
would like to know if anyone has them and if so what you think about them.
I would think they would possibly be more comfortable but that may depend on the size of your
hand.

Re: READ FIRST

Excellent list Norm. I have not done any loading for 15 or more years so it does need reviewing. I will print out a copy and have it handy for a quick review prior to any part of the loading process. Even if you are experienced, it is still a good reminder that one needs to on top of things to avoid...

Re: Made some videos

I have tinkered with my own firearms for years but when you have help as you do here it makes it more fun and probably less mistakes as well. I noticed the handloading section also. That another neglected by me but for years project that I will gear up for later this fall. I made all my own balls fo...

Re: Made some videos

More thanks to you for taking the time to make the videos and share them with us. They really give one confidence to get it done. I am constantly amazed at what I am learning on this forum about these weapons we all seem to gravitate to for some reason and I always come here and stroll through to se...

Re: New P64

Another solution may be a pair of bike riding gloves. They have extra padding on the palm for leaning
on the handlebar and should provide extra "meat" for the palm area. I will give them a try myself
when I get to the range.

Re: Best IWB holster (better fit: PPK or SigP230?)

I ran across this site today with a different type of carry. Not sure how comfortable it would be but for a number of reasons I will have to give it a try. Called the Smartcarry, it is probably the best undetectable way to carry I have seen to date. Good pics too showing how it works under the pic s...

Re: WELCOME THREAD AND MEM, INFO

Hi Everybody, Just joined today after reading it over for the last few weeks and finally got a P-64 today while I was picking up a Bulgarian Makarov. I have had a FEG PA-64 for close to 15 years or so and am fascinated with these pistols and the 9x18 cartridge. My FEG still looks like new and never ...
