re: Mossberg Silver Reserve II Side by Side 12 Gauge - dawg23
[quote]I like them for hunting, I like double triggers and there are more SxSs with double triggers than O/U, A SxS and an O/U handles much better than a semi auto or pump. [/quote]Good explanation. When I hear people talk about double triggers, I always recall a buddy who shot his first round ...

re: Mossberg Silver Reserve II Side by Side 12 Gauge - dawg23
I have to ask -- other than liking its appearance, why the desire for a side-by-side? They are generally considered harder to shoot well than an O/U or a semi-auto (on the skeet & sporting clays fields). ...

re: IWB mag holder recommendations - dawg23
No suggestions on mag pouch, but kudos for understanding that carrying a spare mag or two is a good idea (especially with a limited capacity pistol like the Shield). Statistically, the mag is one of the more likely reasons that a top-tier gun might go TU. I carry a spare 17 round mag all the time...

re: Help me find a concealed carry pistol - dawg23
1. You've been given a lot good advice -- mainly to get a 9mm and carry it in a manner that allows a one-handed draw. 2. Bodyguard is one of the few pistols that has a worse trigger than the LCP. But the real answer is to quit thinking about .380's. 3 The best advice you've been given is to ...

re: Can I haul a golf cart in the bed of a F150? - dawg23
[quote]OP just needs to find a way to back in the golfcart into the truck, that way wouldn't a majority of weight be in bed?[/quote]I think the weight is pretty evenly distributed in most carts -- for sure if it's electric. My shooting/hunting carts have always been electric, and the batteries are ...

re: Just bought a Franchi Affinity - dawg23
Not the exact model you bought, but ............one of my co-workers has a Franch 620 (20 gauge). He's not very tall, and has sorta short arms, so it's a youth model that fits him perfectly. That gun has [u]never failed[/u] to cycle low brass target loads (sporting clays) & [u]never failed to fir...

.22 Ammo Is Pretty Abundant - dawg23
As everyone has probably noticed, .22 ammo is back on shelves. But of greater significance, it's not only available, it's actually [u]abundant[/u]. I'm sure there are even better deals out there -- this one just happened to hit my computer toady as sales flyer: [link=(http://www.ammunitionsupp...

re: Opinions on Palo alto and hunters run gun club - dawg23
[quote]Then that is way out of the norm. I've shot there well over 100 times, never had a problem with more than 1 in a session. When informed about it, they take care of it right away. Not beating the Hunters Run drum, just stating what it really is. It's certainly not a dump and you can pretty...

re: Best single stack 9 for cc - dawg23
[quote]if I was making the grip length as long as a 19, why not just carry the 19. [/quote]This. OP will be much better off adapting to the G19 - he won't shoot the Shield or the G43 as well (rapid, accurate shot placement) as the G19 -- (eta: Unless his name is Miculek :lol: ). You can't susp...
