    New Gun Website

    My cousin just recently came to me wanting me to order a S&W .380 EZ for his wife. I found a new gun website online that is selling it for $289.99. I am on other gun forums online and have been spreading the word. I didn't realize how popular and in demand this gun is. Every site I have posted this on, members left and right are going to their site to buy one. I have some coupons for their website if anyone is interested. https://www.lockedloaded.com/

    That's a good price. I own (3) Norinco Paratroopers. The going prices here start at about $350. I remember back in the day I could buy them for $79.95.

    PORTUGUESE MODEL 1904 /6,5 X 58

    it more or less selected ME LOL. older gentleman said it was ''brought to Kanada'' by his father ...he had NO USE for it on his liveaboard boat.....I offered to do him a favor and take it off his hands....... I have since done several favors in return.......kind of felt a little guilty of ''doing him the favor''. they are not common in SOUTH AFRICA and are known to perform well on plains game.

    M&P Over Glock

    The M&P 2.0 is a good gun. I like them, but with over a dozen auto pistols, I just don't need one...still, at those prices...

    Not yet an owner...but someday, when a few other rifles in which I've got a greater interest are occupying my safe, then a MN is on the list, but I was thinking of a Finnish built one... And yes - I realize that EVERY milsurp rifle is appreciating in price. In the two years since I bought the K-31, they're nearly double the price...

    7x57 ammo

    I realize that this is an ancient thread, but 7x57 ammo is now $0.60 here: https://www.sgammo.com/catalog/rifle-ammo-sale/7mm-mauser-7x57-ammo I love this company - awesome prices, reasonable shipping, great customer service. Now is a great time to buy ammo, particularly the less common types. Stock up! Cheers, Astro

    M&P Over Glock

    That’s what I went into the shop to get that day, but he made me a deal I couldn’t refuse on the 2.0. Otherwise, yes, for the price, everyone should be sticking away an M&P or two or three. Even if the type doesn’t interest them, it’s one of those things we’ll regret later if we don’t.

    M&P Over Glock

    If you go to Google and enter "LE TRADE INS" you will see several reputable online gun shops selling LE trade in FS .40 caliber M&P's, $199-$300. I bought 2 of them. The trigger on my 2.0 is 10X better then the 1.0 trigger. They also have G22's, G23's, and G21's, in Gen. 2-4, starting out at $239.

    M&P Over Glock

    Update: I now have an M&P 9 2.0 Compact. Or is it M&P Compact 2.0 9mm? Or M&P 2.0 Compact 9? Or...something It’s a Glock 19-size M&P i don't expect a switch from steel-frame guns any time soon, but I am pretty sure my eyes will require a red dot sight in the future. I might as well start getting used to the (probable) gun that will carry it. The local gun shop having a “Black Friday sale if you ask for it” on used guns did me in I used to have an M&P 45 and didn’t think the trigger was as good, but that’s been a while. I looked at two used “1.0” M&P 9s Friday also, and that confirmed my memory. The 2.0 trigger action feels better to me. Not just lighter, but crisper and smoother. I’m seeing used old style M&Ps selling for what used Glocks sold for in the mid 90s. Maybe it’s a good time to stick a couple away.

    Are there any MN owners here? I currently own an all numbers matching 1943 Ischev 91/30. It's not in excellent shape, but it's not far from it. The only problem with it, if you want to call it a problem, is it's counter bored. But, on the plus side, it's VERY accurate. It will shoot a flea off of a fly's rear end at 500 meters! Back in the late 80's, early 90's, I would buy them (6) at a time from THE SHOTGUN NEWS paper. The prices were $49.95-$69.95. I bought them to sell. I wish I would have saved a few. The lowest price I have seen them sell for are $300+. In 2014, I paid $150 for the one I currently own.

    Hello All

    Wow. I can’t imagine.

    Hello All

    When he was in jail here, one of my best friends owned a bakery, which was attached to her home. She would make his favorite pie, pecan. She brought him one every week. He was a very crooked governor, and a DEMOCRAT, but he sure took care of the people in La. He was a HUEY P. LONG of that time. Our current governor, John Bel Edwards, has EE's last name (no relation) but sure is NOTHING like him! He's scared of his own shadow, and was the person that started the ball rolling to eliminate ALL Confederate statues in America. He started by planting the bug in the previous N'awlins mayors ear, Mitch Landrieu. When he eliminated all of the statues in N'awlins, he sealed his fate at not being voted mayor again. One last thing about Avoyelles Parish. It's the poorest Parish in La. Our sales tax is currently 10.25%! Yes, you read that correctly, 10.25%! And, in December, the Police Jury is holding a special election to raise it to 11.25%. The residents here are so tired of being taxed and will most likely shoot it down. But can you imagine, 11.25%?

    Hello All

    I had to look up Avoyelles Parish. Home of Gov Edwin Edwards? I was living down there during his trial/circus in 1985-86. Wow. What a show.
  19. BlueOvalFitter

    Hello All

    Thank You Sir. Avoyelles Parish. All of my family is from here, but I grew up in the Baton Rouge/Gonzales area.

    Ruger announces Pistol Caliber Carbine

    I didn’t want to like this rifle, but it’s happening anyway. I’ve had two different 9mm carbines before; a Colt AR-15 and a Marlin Camp 9. After wanting a Colt for quite a while, I was surprised at liking the Marlin better. It was more reliable and more accurate. This Ruger would shoot rings around either of them. I might crack two inches at 50 yards on a good day with the Marlin. The Ruger has gone under an inch at 50 several times now. Thursday I only benched two types of ammo, and one group each. One went 1-3/8” and the other went 5/8”. This is with a dot sight. Function had had been flawless until that day. I am using the Glock magwell, and I bought an ETS 31-rd mag, and a Magpul 21-rd mag to try in addition to my Glock mags. The ETS mag gave me two stovepipes in 31 rounds using Federal AE 115 FMJ ammo. . I’ve used a variety of factory and reloaded ammo in the other mags and had not seen that before. It holds well in standing There is enough weight to make it “hang” well and it doesn’t bounce much in recoil. The trigger makes it easy to shoot unsupported I’ve been using a Holosun 510 sight. It’s not really like anything else, but most similar to an EoTech I suppose. It has a battery and a solar panel. It runs off solar power when it’s avIlable and reverts to battery power when it’s not. The solar panel does not charge the battery. It can be set in an auto mode that turns the sight on when it senses movement and turns it off after ten minutes (I think) of being still. I mostly chose it because of its reputation in USPSA and the reticle was available in green. I find green shows up better than red for me. Taken down to it's two big parts, the Ruger fits in a multi-compartment duffle I have, and that in turn fits in my motorcycle saddlebags. The carbine has already logged quite a few miles. I guess I’ve adopted it.

    M&P Over Glock

    I don’t own either now, but have had both and prefer the M&P. I’ve never had an FN or Steyr polymer frame pistol, but would be willing to try them.
