    I didn't really understand this the first time, but I just read it again and realized you were probably talking to me. I wasn't trying to be disparaging about gun owners; I was simply lamenting the fact that the racial crap got so far out of hand so fast. As gun owners, I think we have to hold...

    Tactical Shotguns- Remington vs. Mossberg

    I think I'm going to end up going with the Mossberg simply because they have more options. Probably one of the 590A1s, because they have the heavier barrels and metal trigger guard, etc. Link Removed On that page, I'm looking at either the 51670 or the 51663. They each have 8+1 capacity and...

    Tactical Shotguns- Remington vs. Mossberg

    I will soon be buying a shotgun for home defense. I want one with synthetic furniture that can carry 7-8 shells in the tube. A pistol grip and heat shield would be nice, but not necessary. I have been told that the Mossberg 500 is a little cheaper than a comparable Remington 870. I work weekends...

    Glock 21 Explodes In Deputy's Hand

    Most likely it's still an ammo issue, but they're going to send the weapon off to have it looked at. Found this in related stories. Link Removed

    Anyone have warranty experience with Magnum Research?

    My .45 Baby Eagle has had some minor feeding issues since I bought it; you may have seen the threads I posted a while back. Rather than spending money to replace the recoil spring or polish the feed ramp (and thereby possibly voiding my warranty), I thought it might be a good idea to just send...

    Home defense question: Which would you use?

    I'm planning to buy a shotgun when I have the money, and have been looking at the Mossberg 500 Home Defense, which holds 8 shells. Until then, however, I'm limited to rifles and pistols. I was wondering the other day what the optimum choice would be if, God forbid, I heard someone break into my...

    Looking for an old post about the love of guns, does this sound familiar?

    I read a really good post on this site a while back, and now I can't find it. If I could remember the wording, I would use the search function, but I don't. Hopefully this sounds familiar to one of you guys/gals. Essentially, it was a series of lines talking about how much the author loved...

    Touching up the blue on a Mini-14

    You may have seen my thread a little while back about my Mini-14's gas block being rusted shut. CLP and brute force got it working again, but after cleaning everything up, I decided to try touching up the bluing so this doesn't happen again. I picked up a Birchwood Casey Perma-Blue kit and read...

    Feed Issues with my Baby Eagle .45

    After a few long months of not shooting my .45 BE, I picked up a 250-rd Mega Pack of Remington UMC 230-grain FMJ and went to the range with some friends, where I proceeded to exhaust the entire box. After a hundred or so rounds, I started to notice that occasionally the slide would not close all...

    Oh, wow. Was clicking through Cabela's and found this. Link Removed Brb, I need to go change pants.

    Mini-14 bolt stuck!

    I pulled my Mini off the shelf to look at it the other day and found I couldn't pull back the charging handle. I even put the handle on the edge of a table and pushed down with the gun, but it didn't budge and I didn't want to push harder for fear of causing damage. I'm guessing that it would...

    Polymer Magazines for a 10/22

    I was at Academy the other day and saw some 25 round polymer mags for the 10/22 made by Butler Creek. I found the website, and here they are: Link Removed Anyone ever used these? Are they worth it?

    The Youth Are Still Defenseless.

    I'm a 23-year-old graduate student at the University of Houston. The UH campus, like the vast majority of college campuses across the country, is a supposed "gun-free zone." I was working late in my office last night (Saturday) when I received the latest email report of gun-related violence on...

    Mini 14 Magazines

    Can any of you gentlemen (or ladies) recommend a good company for high-capacity Mini-14 magazines? I'd like to pick up a few 30-round mags. I've been searching around, but I'm not sure what is quality and what isn't.

    Man Accidentally Shoots Toilet After Gun in His Pants Goes Off

    I got one of those for Christmas and love it. It conceals my Taurus revolver just fine, but unfortunately the Baby Eagle's grip sticks out a bit unless I'm wearing really baggy clothing.
