    .270 or .308

    Looking at getting a new rifle, in between a .270 and .308. I like the .308 rounds, all my hunting buddies use .270. It would be a whitetail rifle, and paper puncher when I find the space. Mossberg atr has both at buds for $270.00. Thoughts? Experiences on the rounds?

    Dura Grips on 1911

    Anyone ever use them. I looked at some VZ grips at the gun store yesterday, I liked them but the $75 price tag.....not really happy about that. These are a good price Link Removed If anyone has a set, what is your thoughts. I may just go ahead and order for that price.
