re: looking to buy my first gun - dawg23
[quote]So, the only good guns are those issued by the man?[/quote] Surely you're smarter than that. (I have a lot of kin folk in Alabama that went to Auburn and they're smarter than that.:lol:) My point is that (a)large LE agencies do some serious reliability testing of handguns, and (b) they do...

re: looking to buy my first gun - dawg23
I guess we'll just have to disagree. #1 I'm no expert. But I have trained under more than a few. #2 People who buy cheap handguns for self-defense need to ask themselves what value they place on themselves, spouses, kids, grandkids etc. The POS guns have a much higher probability of malfunctio...

re: shotgun fitting around BR - dawg23
I don't duck hunt all that much, nor do I hunt quail or doves a lot. But I know they can "sneak up" on me, and I find that I sometimes have to shoulder the gun and fire more quickly than I'd like to. That (and shooting clays) is when gun fit is important (to me). ...

re: Back Pocket CC Suggestions - dawg23
One or two of those "reasons" are [u]theoretically[/u] valid. But there's a point of diminishing returns with handguns (all of which are relatively puny -- compared to shotguns and centerfire rifles). Somewhere there's a "minimum" line to not be crossed. Most SD handgun gurus will tell you that l...

re: Back Pocket CC Suggestions - dawg23
Very few HP .380's (maybe Buffalo Bore) will penetrate 12" (in ballistic gel - this is the FBI minimum for penetration) and expand to over .80 caliber out of a short barrel. Federal HST in 9mm will do this. And the 9mm bullet will be heavier (147 grain) vs. ~ 80-90 grain for a .380...

Lot of good advice from Tiger on the Hill. ^^^ Much of the advice posted earlier in this thread is surely well-intentioned. But a lot of it is misguided. 1. Rear pocket < front pocket. Guarding against a gun grab is really hard when the gun is carried in a rear pocket. 2. 380 < 9mm. Why on ...

re: Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - dawg23
That's the right way. Those small guns do make it harder to stay clear of the ejection port. I guess that's another "benefit" of the out-of-battery feature.

re: Bought a Shield 9mm today(update pg3) - dawg23
I can see where the "out of battery" might be disconcerting for those used to revolvers. All semi-autos will have this attribute. It's a safety feature. It means you can't shove the muzzle into a guy's rib cage before you pull the trigger, but that's about the only "downside" that I can see. ...

1. Brandishing (called "illegal carry" in Louisiana statutes) is illegal. Drawing a handgun in self defense isn't brandishing. 2. As was said, driving to your home after a confrontation isn't wise. Drive to a police station. 3. ALWAYS phone in a threat to the cops -- unless you're the one who ...
