re: What's your defense ammo? - bapple
[quote]Madness idea unless you use a duty size gun [/quote] +1. Critical Duty is for full-length barrels and is made to defeat barriers and glass. It's not a good carry load for a small CC gun. My carry loads: Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P (Kahr CM9) Federal HST 147gr +P (M&P9 compact)...

re: Concealed Carry Law - bapple
I haven't found any method of obtaining a concealed handgun permit in Louisiana outside of taking a course with an instructor from the Louisiana State Police Approved Instructor List. The method of getting a permit will vary in each state so I can't comment on any others besides Louisiana. Sou...

re: talk me out of an M1A scout - bapple
I'm with ace that I would go with an AR10 just for the reduced weight and ease of mounting optics. But there's something super satisfying about that "ping" from the op rod on every shot with an M1A. I'll honestly probably buy one down the road just for that satisfying noise. And just for the...

I did a detailed comparison of the PPQ (thanks Hammertime) versus the VP9 (thanks Carson). Here's the link: [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QacK1RevOjI)]PPQ vs VP9[/link] You'll find these two guns are nearly identical. To sum up the video, the PPQ has a better trigger but the sights su...

re: What leather holster recommended for MP Shield 9mm? - bapple
It's not all leather but I'm a huge fan of my N82 tactical holster for my Kahr CM9. The front is leather and the backing that goes against your skin is suede.

re: Review of Canik 9mm Handgun - bapple
Very good first review. I shot one of these at the range recently and my first impressions were: 1. Very smooth trigger (especially at that price) 2. I like the 18 round mag 3. The slide and sights are pretty tall (also higher bore axis) but you can't really feel it much, just requires some adj...
