re: What is your most embarrassing moment being turned down? - bapple on 2/11/20 at 8:29 am
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 on 2/10/20 at 4:25 pm
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Pistol recommendation for teenage daughters - bapple on 2/10/20 at 8:00 am
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 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: How quiet is a .223 with a suppressor on it? - bapple on 1/20/20 at 8:41 am
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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Should I change out my rotors? - bapple on 1/8/20 at 12:36 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Rifle question - bapple on 12/28/19 at 8:09 am
[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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: HK VP9 - bapple on 12/27/19 at 11:08 pm
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Barnes VOR-TX Ammo - bapple on 11/15/19 at 5:06 pm
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 ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Used a green light for the first time. *Pics added* - bapple on 11/8/19 at 8:27 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

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. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
