    Glock 23 ten round mags

    If they ever do limit our magazine capacity Glock 23 owners are SOL. Looking to the future and desiring to be able to carry my G23, I have gone to every major supplier in the U.S. and ordered two 10 Round G23 Mags. All now list the mags as out of stock and no backorders. Glock Shop shows my...

    I have discovered most people would not fight back.

    Before being so sure that Ohio law gives you a blanket “License to Kill”, read the article at the link posted below. Also I am not the “bleeding heart” you seem to portray. If you read the rest of the post, I do carry with a HCP and I would probably use my weapon to defend others in most...

    ALL "first handguns" should be .22lr

    Pity is: the topic is good. I do practice daily ( with Bullet trap in my garage)with a .22 revolver(S&W 317)I then practice once a week with my 642 in .38 Spcl at the range. Using a .22 in the same platform as my .38 allows some pretty good skill sets to develop. I don't think it is essential...

    Does it Make Sense to Get a .22 Pistol?

    I have several .22 LR pistols but the one that gets the most use is my S&W 317 . It is the same frame and same trigger as my EDC a S&W 642. In fact the 317 is a little more difficult to shoot because of it's lighter weight. I fire the 317 at a bullet trap in my garage every day. As I practice...

    Home Defense Shotgun

    HD shotguns are an easy "first project" for building your own gun. My primary HD gun is below. It started as a very pathetic hulk of a Mossberg 500A (12 Gauge)hunting shotgun picked up in a cornfield after a tornado. The gun had ridden the funnel to quite a ways from home. We never did find the...

    Advice on Best Concealed Carry Handgun

    I posted this elsewhere, but it does pertain here too. When I started carrying the 642 in a pocket holster I had my seamstress sew in an extra deep reinforced pocket for the right front pocket. It places pistol lower on leg and makes cylinder blend in with leg curve. It also serves to hide grip...

    Metal Mossy 500 safety.

    The more I look at this thing, the more it looks like a bolt action rifle safety button. Mossberg says it doesn't resemble anyything stock or add on that they have ever seen. It has the low profile and one way serrations of a rifle safety. The old Savage had something pretty similar. I don't...

    Metal Mossy 500 safety.

    I was getting ready to order a metal safety button kit for my Mossberg 500 HD when I suddenly noticed for the very first time that I already had a metal button. Now my question is: is this stock or add on? Does anybody out there have an older Mossberg 500 with the metal button from the factory...
