    Mini shells

    What you guys know about the Aguila mini shells? Wondering about shooting them in a single shot 12 ga., like an H&R or NEF. A legally cut down one would be a neat little range toy, or maybe even a decent HD or truck gun. A coach gun comes to mind also.

    Cva scout

    Most folks don't even realize CVA makes a great single shot center fire rifle . Just got this one in 44 mag. Put a Simmons 3-9x40 scope on it. Must say, it is a very accurate rifle. Have only sighted it in for 35 yards or so, but that is perfect for white tail deer here in S. MI. 44mag makes a...

    Slide lock

    Friend has an older Charles Daly DDA 10, 40 cal pistol. Lately the slide has been locking open with a full mag. Had it to a smith & he filed the stop down a tad, but didn't help. I'm thinking the slide stop hold down spring is worn out. Any ideas?

    New to me S&W

    Picked up this little gem today. Nice little gun, is in very good condition. It's 45acp, but it is steel & pretty heavy for a compact. Will get it out next week & see how it goes.

    CO2 Pistols

    Been wanting to get some sort of CO2 pellet pistol for backyard plinking. Any of you guys into this stuff? Been looking at them & some are real good looking. Problem is knowing what's good & what's bad. The reviews are confusing / misleading to say the least. Any info / suggestions would be...

    1911 bling

    Felt like doing something different to one of my 1911's ( REM R1). Swapped out some stock parts with some Wilson Combat stainless parts. I like the contrast. Comments?

    P 238

    Friend just bought a Sig P 238. Nice little gun, but the holster leaves something to be desired. I have one also, but carry it in my front pocket. Anyone been able to find a different holster for this gun? She would prefer a paddle.

    Picked up my new Citadel 1911 9mm pistol today. Pretty decent looking gun. The finish is iffy at best. Doubt it will hold up to much rigorous use. Went to the range BEFORE cleaning it. Results were as I would expect for a gun of this price. Had a few issues with FTF, not going into battery...

    A friend of mine recently "inherited" a Marlin 30-30 from her Dad. She will NOT be hunting with it, just an occasional trip to the range. What kind of ammo should she get on the cheap? Not exactly a target gun. Just want to shoot holes in paper.
