    Is ignorance Bliss when it comes to complex firearms issues

    If brevity truly is the wit of soul, then I think we are all missing the point on this forum! More seriously though I would have to say it's just the internet. People gather with common interests and everybody wants their opinion heard. One of the reasons I come here is for the...

    Inexpensive .38 Wheel...

    The wife got a Rossi about a year and a half ago. Exterior finish and fit are very good. The trigger is super heavy. I have a had a number of Tauruses (Tauri?) good guns and better triggers than the Rossi.

    White House Petition To Rescind Norinco Ban?

    Fair enough, I will admit that I don't have much first hand experience with Nornico's products however I do have a fair amount of trigger time on other Chinese manufactured shotguns. I suppose my comment wasn't fairly worded. I was trying to make the point that a lot of people new to the...

    Gander Mountain expanding gun space?

    I suppose that's true. Thankfully the stores up Cleveland way aren't so bad however they still aren't half the stores our regular gun shops are.

    Any room for improvement in revolvers?

    Didn't the gas seal on the Nagant have a lot to do with the cartridge design too?

    Looking for some info on 2 kina of obscure guns

    Thankfully these aren't my guns! I thought that the Davis was the same as the Cobras, they looked identical. Thanks for confirming that. If anyone knows anything else, particularly about the ramline let me know!

    Any room for improvement in revolvers?

    I think simplicity will be the next advancement for wheel guns. Ruger's taken a lot on with the LCR design, sure polymer parts make for a lighter gun but it also makes it cheaper to make. We have seen an explosion in revolver interest and therefore revolver development should move along too...

    Gander Mountain expanding gun space?

    Stopped at the GM on a trip in Jacksonville Florida last October and they had an enormous renovation to the gun counter well under way. If only I could convince my local GM to do the same... Also whats with all the GM hate? Sure it's not the greatest store in the world but at least it's not...

    White House Petition To Rescind Norinco Ban?

    I think an online campaign would be a waste of time and I am not exactly sure why people think they should lobby the president; 1) he has proven he isn't interested in pro-gun anything and 2)petitions are effective at the local level, not when you are looking at a national electorate (you can...

    Looking for some info on 2 kina of obscure guns

    So I came across two guns I have never heard of until today and was hoping you all could provide a little more info. The first is a Ramline Syn-Tec Pistol in .22lr. Kind of looks like a mostly polymer and ugly Ruger MKII knock off. The 2nd would be a Davis Industries D-32 derringer in .32ACP...

    New Ruger GP100 Shown at SHOT

    Sounds like you got a good deal friend. However, things cost what they cost. If most new guns aren't worth more than $375 to you, I hope enjoy what you already got:o

    New 'ERGO" J-frame grip

    as goofy as it looks I think they maybe on to something. I know the LCR's grips are at a steeper angle than the j-frames and have significantly more meat on them so the math is sound at least. Of course this takes the formula to an extreme but for 20 bucks well worth a shot I think.

    One historic collector gun: Which one?

    Only because I have wanted one for a while but +1 on the johnson. Not a lot of historical significance compared to the others as far as use goes but an interesting story none the less. If it had to be WWII, and not a johnson, I would probably go with the 1903 only because everyone has a...

    Looking for Information on the History of Gun Control

    Another period of all of this I am looking into is any arms control measures after the revolution but before the civil war (atebellum years) because I know there where a lot of tax revolts.
