Re: Big Bore......

this is an interesting post... went to a LEO briefing last week, the topic was "reaction vs action" in a OIS (officer involved shooting). We talked about how one needs to be prepared mentally to exchange fire, especially during a traffic stop or a DV (domestic violence). We talked about a couple of ...

Re: 357 lever gun 16 vs 20 inch barrel

I have two Marlin 1894c (.357-mag), both have a 18.5" barrel. As I always like a 16" barrel the 18.5" barrel is a good compromise. The standard Marlin 1894c is easy to carry, well balanced, and a good option to hunt with... :)

Re: Most of you have probably read this already ...

I had the opportunity to carry and qualify with the civilian version of the Sig P320 for the last three years (owned two Compact 15-shot 9mm). After 3 years I went back to Glock (went way back to Glock Gen 3). I had several reasons for the change, but in the end I just didn't like this weapon platfo...

Re: Favorite sixgun barrel length?

The last reply begs the question..... why no revolver ? Been carrying a Glock, or some type of striker-fired auto pistol since 1996. I serve in a LE Agency so most of my shooting is with an auto pistol--I did start with revolvers back-in-the-day but we transitioned away from them in the 1990's. Eve...

The Glock 45 is a direct result of the MHS (US Military trials for a new handgun system, Glock came in 2nd). They released the Glock 19x awhile back and the G-45 is a black color version of that (well kind-of). The G-45 is very comfortable to shoot, again I like the balance of this auto and the 17-r...
