That was the kind of Saturday where the weather was right and I had just finished drinking a can of Cheerwine so I grabbed the ol' model 60, a fistful of ammo, and another Cheerwine and went outside for 15 minutes of fun.

  • Best Caliber for home defense and concealed carry, 9mm or 45 acp?

    Best answer: 9mm. Many people like the .45 acp and I have enjoyed shooting one. But I can't think of any situation for defense or attack, in war or in peace, where it would be the best choice. If you were out in grisly bear country, a .45 would be better for emergency protection than a 9mm, but it would still not be the... show more

  • Is pistol caliber ammo useless against body armor?

    Best answer: most armor isn't multi hit capable. Stuff that may stop an ak47 round will probably only be able to take 2-3 hit before becoming super fragile and virtually useless. That same armor will probably only stand up to 10-12 rounds of 9mm. less if its 45 acp and even less once you get into you 357's, 44's,... show more
    Best answer: most armor isn't multi hit capable. Stuff that may stop an ak47 round will probably only be able to take 2-3 hit before becoming super fragile and virtually useless. That same armor will probably only stand up to 10-12 rounds of 9mm. less if its 45 acp and even less once you get into you 357's, 44's, 10mm and up. Plus don't forget each hit the armor just keeps the metal out of you. That energy is still getting transfered into your body. So the first hit is going to feel like a fastball to the ribs and each hit after will feel worse and worse as the armor degrades.

    I've been interested in getting into more types of weaponry lately since my main focus is swords but I wanna at least know how to use a variety of weapons like bows, spears, guns, etc. but I don't really want more than a pistol to add to my collection. Since my focus will be pistols and since my knowledge of guns is limited, what would be a good, reliable pistol to use? Also, where would you need to go to learn how to use a gun other than the NRA?

  • Is a 30-06 too big for a teenager to handle if they have experience with guns?

    Best answer: Nah it's fine for a teenager if they're trained in proper technique and safety, and if they're responsible people. I wouldn't let my son use one, but only because he can get a little silly.

  • Olympic 3 gun shooting, yay or nay?

    Best answer: I'd love to see it, however the Olympics and the countries that participate make the event a highly political arena. You'll never see a scary black rifle anywhere near any Olympic village.

  • SigP320 Full Size or Compact for home defense, range, and ccl?

    Best answer: Downside to the full size? It's bigger. For concealed carry, you want smaller, both better concealability and for weight reduction. By the end of the day, even an ounce less weight is meaningful. Disclaimer: the subcompact, with a 12+1 capacity in 9mm Parabellum, is one of my preferred carry guns. I'll... show more

    Disclaimer: the subcompact, with a 12+1 capacity in 9mm Parabellum, is one of my preferred carry guns. I'll give up a little capacity for the size and weight reduction. It's no range gun, especially with my eyes getting as old as the rest of me, but you can't have everything.
