I really hate the white warning about how it can fire with the mag removed. Duh, is a gun... Wish there was an easy way to remove that.
The reason it is there is because they also make M&Ps (and other guns) with magazine safeties (aka, not capable of firing with magazine removed)


So the "Duh, is a gun" statement is sorta invalid here...

But it is a nice gun, I have a FS M&P9 on the way for Christmas

I know why they have it. Do the ones with the mag safety proudly announce 'This Gun Cannot Be Fired Without A Magazine'?

Just a personal rant of mine on how all these 'safety' warnings take up so much space on the slides of guns. Duh, is a gun, use the basic safety rules, and things are good.

My point is basic safety. Not relying on a magazine safety. I will read the manual, and see what built in safeties are on the gun. And any magazine safeties will be removed if it can be easily done.

Just my opinion, everybody has one.

'Duh, is a gun' might go bang if you play with it, mag safety or not. How much more instructions are they going to put on the slide?

I'm with you, Fred. With our litigious society anything and everything becomes a lawsuit....I wish common sense was actually common nowadays...

Going to a gun show tomorrow, will pick up a Mosin-Nagant if I see one in good condition for under $130...

Peskos, you can buy them online starting at around $79. Of course, with $20 or so shipping and FFL fees, you might find a good deal at the gun show. Always a bit of a gamble buying online, site unseen.

Santa's elves custom built a Rossi matched pair for my son. 22LR and a 410 barrel included also. His first rifle and the only one that he ever got excited over. He's at an odd size where the small ones are too small and most youth models are too large and heavy. He shouldered this one and declared it to be "just my size!" Since it is light, he can actually fire it off hand without needing bags or my help. I sort of wanted a nice lever or at least the nicer stainless model, but this one is what HE reacted the strongest to. Can't wait for him to fire his first round in his very own rifle. Now if I can just find some mini shooting slings...feel free to pm me if you know of some good ones!




Plus it will make a nice kit gun even when he gets big enough for an adult gun. I'm excited to shoot it, but I'm making myself wait so he can be the one to break it in.

Merry Christmas!

Here are a couple pics. I was pleasantly surprised when I picked it up to find it decked out with Esmerelda grips. I want to do a nicer photoshoot of all my newly aquired 1911's later this week.

love them war horses

yugo m48, thinking of trading for a 03A3 love the 30 06. 8mm ammo sure is hard to find in western NY. I must not be looking in the right places maybe. Besides it would really complement my M1

Traded my Glock 27 for a GSG-5 + cash a few days ago. About 250 rounds later I'm liking the rifle. You just can't beat $20 with tax for 550 rounds

I picked up a Kel-Tec SU-16ca in. .223Rem. Have not shot it yet. Looking forward to talking it out. Added a reddot sight & a flash suppresser.Feels like a toy. But that was how I felt when I was handed my first M16 Rifle &my glock 19 ! Changed my mind quickly!
