Re: Taylors and Co. New '73

Not my cup of tea for that price but remember, the 9mm is now the cheapest centerfire round available. That could mean a lot of shooting, especially if one does not reload. And as a companion to a 9mm pistol? Wouldn't be the first time that has happened.

Re: 300 Blackout Suppressor options

I like the Q "Trash Panda". Yes, not integrally suppressed, but not too much additional length.

And, a tax and wait for something to save your hearing and the hearing of those around you just goes to show that our government wandered off protecting our rights a very long time ago. :evil:

Re: Browning Buck Mark FTF

That makes me hesitate to get a buckmark. I think these are good, accurate .22 pistols. Prices have gone up a bit faster than other guns maybe, but that's probably more of being a Browning than other brands (Browning is very proud of their stuff - usually with good reason). This is a minor part and...
