    DAO Only Hammer-fired Pistol other than Sig P250??

    The bad thing about the trigger of the P-11 I had wasn't the weight or length of pull. It was that it was the opposite of smooth. I know a lot of people would do some polishing & smooth them up. I just learned to shoot it as it was. It was about as accurate for me as anything else once I got...

    Auto_loader with hammer Question

    I had one of those Taurus pistols. It was a PT-111 Millenium Pro G2. They described it as SA/DA. It was normally single action but it had a double action second strike capability. I honestly couldn't tell much if any difference between the double action & single action triggers. I disliked the...

    DAO Only Hammer-fired Pistol other than Sig P250??

    it is not in production now but the Kel-Tec P-11 was hammer fired DAO. It had a shrouded hammer. If you want a smooth refined trigger pull it may not be the gun for you but it worked. I carried it for a long time due to its small size & light weight.

    Another "New" 1911.

    In all honesty this just isn't my thing. It seems to be a prototype though. I find myself thinking of advice my father gave me long ago to never buy the first year of a new model of car. If I were interested in this I would just watch & wait. Let the reviews come in & the beta testing be...

    Plinking / teaching optic for a 10/22

    I would expect that to work well. I have a Simmons (I think) 4x32 on one of my Marlin model 60's that has been fine. It has never given me a problem. I did have some difficulty shooting at a small target at 50 yards with it a while back, but that was not a scope issue. My eyesight has changed...

    Ruger LC9

    There is very little difference in size/weight between the LC9s & the Max 9. There is about $50 difference in price between a Max-9 & an EC9s. If you are interested in an LC9/LC9s I would suggest taking a look at the Max 9. I like mine the only problem I have had was caused by my grip. Once I...

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    I bought it from Midway. They probably would replace or refund but I'm not sure I want to invest the time to do it. Working 6 days a week these days. Between work, my daughter's soccer games & everything else I'm not sure it is worth the trouble.

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    So I got the recoil pad in today. The advice about either getting a grind to fit pad or just getting a slip on was spot on. I didn't want to fool with grinding & fitting so I ordered the prefit pad. I did download & print the template from Kick-Eez's website. It appeared to be right on side to...

    Who scopes their .22s?

    I have 3 old Marlin/Glenfield .22's. One is a Marlin model 60 that I picked up back around 95. It came with I think a cheap tiny 4 power scope. It now wears a Bushnell 4x32 scope if memory serves correctly. The other is a 70's vintage Glenfield model 25 I had an inexpensive 3-9x32 on it that had...

    Ruger American Pistol

    When the American pistol hadn't been out but a year or so I got one for my wife. She has an aversion to recoil. I thought a full sized 9mm would help with that. In honesty it hasn't been shot a lot (she doesn't shoot a lot & it is hers not mine). From everything I have seen & experienced it is a...

    Optic or no optic on your defense handgun?

    This is an interesting thread. Particularly the comments saying that practicing with an optic teaches one to align iron sights quicker. I have never owned or used an optic on a handgun. I did get to shoot a fellows competition gun that had an optic on it. I expressed an interest in handgun...

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    It printed to scale. They had a ruler on the edge of the page that printed so you could place a tape measure or rule on it & make sure it is to scale.

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    I looked at the template & it looks like it might barely overhang on the two oval ends but everything else looks good. I think I'm going to try it. If I do have to fit it maybe it will be less work.

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    Thanks, I may try one. I haven't tried to match it up yet but I printed out the template for their pre-fit pad. I'm going to try to match it up & see if it looks right. If it doesn't I may have to round up a belt sander & try the grind to fit route.

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    How long do the Kick-Eez pads usually last?

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    That makes sense. I have an old Limbsaver slip on. Should I just stick with it or is there anything better out there?

    Aftermarket Recoil Pad

    So, I have an old U.S.R.A.C Winchester model 70 Ranger I bought back in 1989. It is chambered for .30-06 & weighs about 7 1/2 pounds with scope sling & everything. It has a featherweight barrel contour but wears an inexpensive birch stock. Cheapo push feed model 70 but it has served me well. I...

    If you could only have 5 handguns?

    Depressing concept but here goes. Out of what I already own I would keep: S&W M&P 2.0 40 Compact 4" PSA Compact Dagger SR 1911 5" Dan Wesson model 15-2 Ruger Max 9 I would only be dropping two handguns but I am planning on remedying that situation by acquiring another soon.
