A question can be worded and the answer interpreted to mean anything you want it to mean
They don't define the ages of the older people that were polled, but if it's over a certain age then it's a sure bet the vast majority will be old women who will be more liberal and more easily influenced by t...

The de-cocking aspect of the Sig is the one single selling factor that should move you towards the 229. I have never felt comfortable with the thought of having a "cocked and locked" 1911 around and I have a friend that was shot with a supposed safe 1911 that was in that condition.
There is a r...

Remember reading an article in Outdoor Life many years ago about hunters and trappers that were found dead in the woods - all had broken necks and had been wearing hear covers that we're made from animal pelts. The bottom line was they had been hit by owls and the force of impact had caused the fat...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Purdey Shotguns- What are the OB opinion of them? - mallardhank on 2/8/14 at 7:55 am|
They are among the finest guns ever made. Also, the smaller the gauge the fewer guns made, which adds exponentially to your guns value.
There are gun shops out there that specialize in these things.
| Outdoor Board|| re: I don't understand how ammo supplying works - mallardhank on 1/26/14 at 6:24 am|
I believe that many of us are unconsciously doing the hoarding thing - it's been some time now that we've seen certain calibers on the shelves so that when they appear we add to the stash. I am seeing more 9mm, 22mag, 17hmr and others on Wally world shelves and in the lgs, so things are getting bet...

The 03 action is one of the finest ever made, and if the rifle is built with a custom barrel will shoot lights out. The action by itself is pricey and altering the bolt and safety which has been done to this gun adds to the cost. You can have 400 plus just in the altered action. This is what h...

For more reviews of this cartridge and gun, go to Rimfire Central website. As for the WSMs future, no one knows at this time. I'm waiting for a better rifle from either Ruger or CZ, and those two manufacturers are waiting to see if demand for the WSM will justify the expenses for them to design ...

Price point has to be a big factor - some cost half or less than the others. Also they won't get stolen.

Wingmasters are much more highly finished than the Express, especially the older Wingmasters
The older guns probably have a better bluing job than the newer ones, or at least a different method of bluing that to me looks better
The express is more an entry level gun, or one that is more of a boat ...

Cops would use pepper spray. You don't need a ccp, you won't get hauled in for having it on your person, it won't ice innocent bystanders, and its great self protection if you have to be in that type of situation. Always try to stay out of arms reach from a potential adversary....
