    M&P Over Glock

    I've never owned a Glock, but have shot them. I just don't like them and much prefer my M&P or XD

    Ruger announces Pistol Caliber Carbine

    I can't wait to hear your opinion, I've thought this would be a great gun.

    Browning HiPower Discontinued

    Browning's website shows two models of the Hi Power still in production: http://www.browning.com/products/firearms/pistols/hi-power-pistols/current-production.html Maybe they decided to let it live for a while?

    ruger lcp

    Did you end up buying one? I really like my LCP, but if the trigger is lots better on the LCP II, then I'd go pick one up.
  5. Ruger announced a pistol caliber carbine. https://ruger.com/products/pcCarbine/models.html 9mm, Mag well inserts to accept several different magazines including Glock, threaded barrel, etc. I've been interested in one and this looks like it might be a fun gun.

    New Project Underway: .260 Ackley Imp

    Maybe a better way to track orders would be nice. Hopefully he can get you barrel to you soon.
  8. Looks like a stout press for a good price. I like that it comes with a stand that gets it above the level of the bench. Nice also that it doesn't have a quick change collet, makes precision work more precise.

    New 22 Nosler Cartridge

    Any idea when we'll be able to buy brass for the 22 Nosler?

    Scout Rifles

    Looking at the prices of the Ruger Scout Rifles, personally I would prefer a Mini-14. It seems to be that the price could steer folks to the less expensive and similarly sized Mini...?

    Pocket Pistol Recommendation

    As you may know, I live in Chicagoland too and carry every day. First, as of now you can not carry on public transportation in IL. I have carried both the LC9 and LCP. The LC9 is a great carry gun, being that it is compact, light, and snag free. I carried either an LC9 or LC9s for a couple years. The LC9s is simply a better gun, because the trigger is so much better than the LC9. When I bought the LCP a few months ago, with the idea of using it as a pocket gun, I didn't realize what was about to happen. The LCP is so light and small and fits so well into the front pocket of my jeans, while inside the pocket holster that comes with it from the factory, that it's the only gun I've carried since. I also have an XDs in 9mm, which is another fantastic gun and relatively the same size and shape as the LC9 (yes the XDs is larger and heavier, but not by much). The XDs and LC9 are too large to carry discreetly in the front pocket of your jeans, so I chose to carry them in an inside the waistband holster. When you carry all the time, even the LC9 in an IWB hoster feels brick-like after a while. The LCP becomes unnoticeable to the point that I've forgotten it's there. The perceived recoil of the LC9 and LCP are similar, mostly because the LCP is so light that it snaps enough to make it feel like the heavier LC9. My $.02

    And Now Remington Has a Glock

    It took me a while to find the specs, so I added them here. When checking out this new handgun from Remington, I couldn't help but yawn and feel underwhelmed with yet another plastic fantastic....
  14. Take your checkbook and some serious fiscal self discipline!
  15. I had a chance to stop at Brownells new retail store (connected to their new HQ & warehouse). It's a great retail store with a ton of new and used guns on display. They have retail kiosks that you can place an order for anything on their website and someone will pick it and bring it to you in about 15 minutes. Put my hands on a JP Enterprises SCR-11 - now I know I need one!
