re: What is your most embarrassing moment being turned down? - bapple
Junior year in college. Invited a cute girl from my calculus class to a fraternity cocktail party. We sat and talked and had a great time the entire night. A friend drove me back to my house and it was just me and her for almost 2 hours. I didn’t make a move and still cringe thinking about all t...

re: Pistol recommendation for teenage daughters - bapple
The overhand rack allows you to use larger muscle groups and utilize both arms rather than isolating one with the slingshot method. Completely agree that it’s superior. Just have to be taught the proper racking technique from the beginning. ...

re: Pistol recommendation for teenage daughters - bapple
I think you’ve had some good suggestions here - get a 22 that mimics the feel and function of its full sized 9mm counterpart. After they get comfortable on the 22s, step them up to a full sized 9mm. It is one of the most practical and popular self defense handgun types out there. In all the ...

re: How quiet is a .223 with a suppressor on it? - bapple
Agree with everyone here that 223 suppressed is still loud. You could also try 45 ACP suppressed. Or if you handload your own ammo, 9mm in 124gr or 147gr is pretty easy to keep subsonic. I’ve shot some of my handloaded 124gr 9mm with 4.2gr of Titegroup and it’s super quiet. ...

re: Should I change out my rotors? - bapple
As others have said, unless your rotors are warped and causing your brake pedal to vibrate, you probably don’t need to change them. All rotors will have some amount of scratches and scoring on them and they will rust when they get wet anyway. It’s impossible to tell if a rotor needs to be replaced j...

re: Rifle question - bapple
[quote]. I’ve never owned a semiautomatic in 50 years of shooting that would shoot anything under a 2 inch group at 100 yards, only the M1A is capable of minute of angle accuracy at that distance. A well tuned AR 10 comes close.[/quote] I strongly disagree with this. I’ve found it’s harder to get...

re: HK VP9 - bapple
My wife has a VP9 and it’s a fan favorite in my concealed carry classes, especially with females that have smaller hands. The grip is very ergonomic and all the grip panels that come with the gun allow you to set it up exactly to your liking. That being said, I do think the Walther PPQ has a bet...

[quote]Blowed fuse. [/quote] Did you blow a fuse or trip a breaker? The answer to this question can also give us an idea of the age of your home. I haven’t seen a single home use fuses since before I was born (and I’m 30). The easiest way to figure out the wiring situation is to get up in the ...

re: Looking to buy a home defense rifle - bapple
[quote]The suppressor hides muzzle flash, which helps with the homeowners maintaing a cleaner sight picture[/quote] I actually didn’t even think of this point. I can’t say I disagree! This would be the same reason I’m not a fan of compensating a defensive handgun - the flash would be blinding in ...

re: Barnes VOR-TX Ammo - bapple
My dad has been hunting deer his entire life and has not been more impressed with ammo than he has with Barnes. He loads Barnes TTSX himself but it’s the same bullet used in those factory rounds. Weight retention is good with an all-copper bullet and it being longer means it engages the rifling for ...

re: Used a green light for the first time. *Pics added* - bapple
Something like this would probably do although I’d get a better mount for it: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N2PC8IN/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_kvFXDb1F40FMD EDIT: Also note that if you want longer battery life, you can use two CR123 batteries in series instead of the rechargeable one that comes with ...

re: Used a green light for the first time. *Pics added* - bapple
I’ve been a big proponent of green spotlights over spending a ton of money on an NV optic. You have to spend serious coin to get a good one, you have to put your eye right up on the eyepiece, the zoom is typically a digital zoom, and the bulky optic adds weight and height to a rifle that doesn’t nee...

[quote]I don’t believe in muzzle breaks. Especially on calibers that don’t really kick that bad.[/quote] I think it comes down to what you like more - your shoulder or your ear drums? :lol: but if you’re like me you’ll either have ear buds in your ears or ear muffs on to dampen the sound. ...

re: Solid Copper Ammunition - bapple
Another vote for Barnes. My dad has hunted deer his entire life and has never been more impressed with a bullet than when he loaded some Barnes TTSX. He said the blood trails have always been good if the animal even manages to run off. In most scenarios they should be DRT. ...
