re: Local gun shop has Sig P250s for $299 - bapple on 9/18/17 at 3:56 pm

re: AR FSB and optics - bapple on 9/14/17 at 10:23 am
I don't have experience with that low power of an optic on an AR but I know from personal experience that the front sight base on my 20" AR does not affect me using my Redfield 4-12x by 40mm optic. When I zoom in it's still quite clear. The only time I've seen it be an issue is if I use a light moun...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Best wireless trail cameras - bapple on 9/12/17 at 6:52 pm
You won't regret it! Just be sure to adjust your camera settings before leaving it unattended so it won't burn through your data. My dad had to increase the time between shots to 5 minutes because the deer were wearing it out....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Best wireless trail cameras - bapple on 9/12/17 at 5:43 pm
Just got done helping my dad adjust the settings on his Moultrie Mobile cameras. They're pretty good and use a Verizon data plan through moultrie without having to sign up a new data plan through a cell phone provider. You can choose the plan online and add data if your camera fills up. It also take...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Smith and Wesson M&P9 Mid Size! - bapple on 9/9/17 at 8:54 am
I think the shield being the best selling single stack 9mm for multiple years showed that the gun is a winner. I don't know of many large issues with them but I don't own one so could be wrong. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

[quote]Only difference really is Ruger is 1:8 and Smith is 1:9.[/quote] This plus the fact that the Ruger has a machined front sight block rather than a MIMed one are the only differences I can think of. They also have gotten pretty similar accuracy results from numerous testers. Either one shoul...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Smith and Wesson M&P9 Mid Size! - bapple on 9/7/17 at 8:48 pm
I fondled a new 2.0 at Bowie the other day and it seems they look some of the tips from Apex for their new design. The mechanism for the improved reset is very similar to the Apex RAM and the sear appears to be similar to an Apex sear. I still hate the shape and the hinge in the middle so I will...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
Smith and Wesson M&P9 Mid Size! - bapple on 9/7/17 at 8:19 pm
The new M&P compact 2.0 will be a mid size 9mm with a 15 round magazine and a 4" barrel like a Glock 19, VP9, and PPQ. I'm very excited for this as most M&P fans likely will be! Happy that companies are listening to their customers. [img]https://i.imgur.com/7U1NHU7.jpg[/img] [link=(https://...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (7)
re: FNX-40 - bapple on 9/4/17 at 8:27 am
I don't have a ton of trigger time behind the hammer fired version, but my FNS9 is one of the most underrated handguns out there. I believe the only differences with the FNS and the FNX line are the hammer/striker and the trigger. Besides that, a lot of the physical features and frame proportions wi...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

All the coaches there have a national championship. Their glory days may be behind them but they did some work. EDIT: Except Helfrich even though he at least had a title game appearance. I like the commentary with no script. Especially when Mac asked Chizik if he liked that an Alabama quarte...

I have the yellow HDs on my M&P 9 compact and love them. Can even connect with them consistently at 50 yards. But I've never tried the orange so can't comment on that.

[quote]you could move the rear sight to in front of the optic,[/quote] I feel like the optic gets a lot less protection in this setup. The rear sight sort of acts like a barrier for the RMR on my core, even though the RMR is pretty damn robust.

re: Pistol grip on shot gun - bapple on 8/31/17 at 8:43 am
You need to specify whether you are talking about a pistol grip with or without a stock. I would never shoot a shotgun without a stock since it'll about break your wrist if the load you're using is strong enough. With a stock and a pistol grip, it's pretty much personal preference. I'd rathe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
