re: Looking to get a CC gun, is this a good deal? UPDATE on page 3. - bapple
[quote]LSUSUPERSTAR[/quote] Excellent purchase. I think FN has some very underrated handguns and even did a review on my FNS9 full size a month or so ago. I run the snot out of that thing and it just keeps ticking. I'm sure you'll love your 9c for years to come. If you think the grip texture i...

[quote]I was simply not happy enough with the accuracy of the shield. I know that if I were ever in a situation where I had to make a tight shot, I wouldnt be able to do that with the shield. [/quote] You're looking at accuracy the wrong way in your observations. Accuracy with most handguns is...

re: looking for suggestions on 1911 frame pistol - bapple
[quote]I was looking at the performance center smith like you had in that vid and it convinced me[/quote] FWIW my S&W isn't a PC gun but the Ruger was a better value in my opinion. [quote] I got the ruger and a wasr 10 [/quote] There ya go! Saved some money and made an excuse to buy anothe...

re: looking for suggestions on 1911 frame pistol - bapple
It's not quite at a grand but you can use the extra money for ammo. I've found there's not a huge difference in quality between a ~$700 Ruger versus a $1000 Springfield, S&W, Kimber, etc. You have to get up to about $1500-$2000 to start seeing big differences....

re: POF Revolution .308 un boxing - bapple
I didn't realize the POF was a piston rifle. That makes the low weight even more impressive. I'm sure the fluted barrel helps with that as well. I also notice that the BCG for the POF is not overbuilt at the rear to compensate for carrier tilt like it is on the Sig. I guess time will tell if that...

re: POF Revolution .308 un boxing - bapple
[quote]it's supposed to be the same size physically as a 223/556[b] so the claim is it feels like shooting one[/b][/quote] I imagine a lot of that can be attributed to that massive muzzle brake. Better double up on ear pro! Nice rifle! Report back to us after a range day. :cheers:...

re: Concealed Carry Weapon - bapple
Pretty much all the quality single stack guns from well-known manufacturers will be reliable. I think the proven leaders in the segment are the Shield, Glock 43, and XDs. Just shoot the fire out of it when you buy it to check function and then carry confidently, as you would with any carry piece....
