re: Night sight recommendations for Glock 22? - bapple
Trijicon HDs. They are some of the best self defense sights I've ever used. Here's my review: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IcsEiPx126s)]Trijicon HD Sights - Optimal Defense[/link]...

[quote]Mechanical parts will always be more reliable than electronics in this application.[/quote] Agreed. The vast majority of people who own defensive firearms want that highest attainable level of reliability possible. Adding electronics adds a layer of complexity that no one wants. Would i...

re: Reloading guys..get in here - bapple
[quote]But treat your used brass accordingly as lead contaminated and if you use a tumbler don't do it inside your home. Much of the lead exposure from shooting/reloading comes from the lead in the primer (lead styphnate). The used brass is full of it. [/quote] The best way to avoid all of th...

[quote]so what is the advantage of doing a lifetime if you have to take the class every 5 years? [/quote] Do not do the lifetime permit option. I'm a CHL instructor and I'll tell you why: 1. As previously mentioned, getting the lifetime permit does not allow you to bypass the NICS when buying ...

re: Light for my AR? - bapple
An illuminator is used in conjunction with a night vision scope, which is not the same as thermal/FLIR. Here's a good summary from google: [quote]Thermal cameras see heat, not light. ... Atmospheric conditions, like smoke, rain, or fog, reflect light, making night vision goggles and scopes even l...

re: Light for my AR? - bapple
[quote]Actuating the light in that position would be extremely cumbersome. Granted you could add a pressure switch but those leads now become a snag hazard. [/quote] This is my biggest objection to it. If you are right handed, you want to position the switch for the light near your left hand ...

re: Running Shoes - bapple
Go to Varsity Sports if you're in BR and get fitted for some Newtons. I love mine - they have extra support and a cushion zone in the tread on the ball of your foot. It helps take some of the impact off your joints and makes your feet not throb so bad when you're done running....

re: Best AR scope. - bapple
For me it would depend on barrel length. If you're running a 16" AR, I'd go with a 1-4x or a 2-7x. If you're running an 18" or 20", you could probably up the magnification a bit more. There is no "perfect" scope as people have mentioned because it's going to depend on application. For a good value b...
