[quote]-9mm better knockdown( even if true, i don't see a significant difference from .380) [/quote] "Knockdown power" is a very misleading term. If he had said 9mm has more muzzle energy than 380, then yes I would agree with him that the difference is measurable. [quote]-9mm much more availab...

That's pretty interesting. But I'm sure that number increases significantly if using 200gr or 230gr rounds. Regardless, nice observations as always. :cheers:...

[quote]Really? How many ounces would you want a gun to weigh for it to not be heavy? The XDs 45 ACP weighs 21.5 oz empty. [/quote] He may be talking about with the ammo. I think the XDs is a decent handgun but unless you just really love 45, I would give the XDs9 a look too. 1. You get more...

[quote]Oh is there some pissing match I don't know about?[/quote] I think what he means is that a 10/22 becomes a money pit like other 1911s, ARs, AKs, etc. since they are fun as shite and easily customizable. Congrats on your new rifle. :usa:...

Tactical Response Fighting Rifle - After Action Report (Warning TL;DR) - bapple
So as been discussed here, I went to Tactical Response in Camden, TN this weekend. I'll try to make this Bapple-outline-esque but there's no guarantee it'll match up to the caliber of my video outlines since I'll mostly just be rambling. Maybe I'll make a video AAR with some footage or something if ...

re: Bapple.........question on barrel length and squib loads - bapple
It would depend on the burn rate specifically, even if they're all the same. But to put a basic number on it (without any research beforehand), I'd guess probably 100 inches or more. Remember, the bullet is also flying extremely fast and inertia is coming into play....

[quote]dstone12[/quote] Your question is very simple and can be almost fully answered with two words: [b]Burn Rate[/b] If you have an extremely fast-burning powder (like Bullseye or WST), the bullet will reach it's max velocity much quicker. If you're using a slower burning powder (li...

My 870 purchased 3 years ago has been a good shotgun. The finish was garbage but I expected that for $350. Besides that, it's good to go. Nothing a little spray paint can't fix.
