re: How do y'all avoid spooking deer out of plots? - bapple
Fire two shotgun blasts into the air from your double barrel shotgun so the deer think you’re Mrs. Biden. Then they know for sure you’re not a threat and your gun is empty. ...

re: Blake Ferguson - Best thing about college athletics? Stuff like this: - bapple
That’s some pretty good writing for a little kid. I bet this kid has a bright future ahead! These kind of stories are always awesome to read. It’s nice to know the team is made up of some respectable young men. :cheers:...

re: Scope for Henry Lever Action .22 - bapple
That’s exactly what I was thinking. If you’re hunting varmints with it, you’d want to have quick target acquisition at close range. A 1-4x or 2-7x will give you that better than a 3-9x. ...

re: Scope for Henry Lever Action .22 - bapple
I agree with upgrade - i think a 3-9x is not an ideal magnification range for a 22. 2-7x or even a 1-4x might be more ideal. Plus at those lower power ranges you will have really generous eye relief. ...

re: Kel-Tec PF-9 - bapple
Decently reliable gun if you luck out and don’t have to send it back. In shooting I’ve found it to not have as good of a trigger or as good of recoil management compared to the competition. But the PF9 was one of the first single stack 9s outside of Kahr until the craze hit so it was built befor...

re: M16A1: Where To Buy One? - bapple
[quote]You want a real M16A1 or just an AR15?[/quote] Agreed. A true M16A1 will run you upwards of $30k. If you’re just looking for a retro AR15 with the triangular handguard and the other stuff, I’d go with one of those Brownell’s rifles. ...

re: Alabama looking at making sweeping staff changes after 14-1 season - bapple
Constantly changing coaches doesn’t always bring success. I think Clemson proved last night tht continuity in a staff can have a lasting impact. I’m not saying staff continuity is everything but it definitely helps. If you clear house constantly you’re gonna have chaos. Then again he’ll like...

re: BRPD is arresting beggars on College - bapple
When will they start arresting at Corporate and College right down the road? I stare at those just about every day leaving work. It’s the same people all the time so they aren’t exactly being honest on their signs - who woulda thunk it?...

re: New Glocks: G48 and G43x - bapple
It’s not about enjoyment :lol:. It’s a question of practicality. Do you want the rear aperture snapping off on something? I don’t think the U-Dot sight style is all that bad but the fact that they are plastic leaves much to be desired. I’d say that for any handgun with plastic sights. Sights are...

re: Revolver Pistols that shoot shotgun .410 shells. - bapple
:lol: I’ve actually seen more Taurus revolvers have failures than most common semi automatics. It’s all anecdotal evidence but my “love” for them isn’t out of nowhere. ...

re: Revolver Pistols that shoot shotgun .410 shells. - bapple
The Taurus Judge is not a very good self defense weapon. Any full sized semi automatic handgun in 9mm Luger, .40 S&W, or .45 ACP would be a better choice. Here's a bookmarked post I made a while back listing the disadvantages of the judge: [quote]It tries to do two things at once but only does...

re: Kary Vincent Jr. Really tough kid Great article - bapple
It’s very inspiring to see how close the players are to each other, truly a brotherhood. The fact that he has his teammates to pick him up and push him through is awesome to see. I hope this kid has his best game ever and leaves it all on the field. I have a feeling he’ll do just that! Geaux ...

re: Is Daily Concealed Carrying An Acceptance Of A Pessimistic View Of Life/Humanity? - bapple
Concealed carry permit holders commit crime at a lower rate than law enforcement officers. Some states used to keep track of it but the number was so low that the money spent keeping track of it was wasted. Then again this was years back when data collection was more difficult. But I doubt t...

re: Is Daily Concealed Carrying An Acceptance Of A Pessimistic View Of Life/Humanity? - bapple
I’m extremely late and I doubt this will get noticed much but as a firearm instructor and one who carries, I don’t necessarily see carrying as accepting that society is in decline. 99.9% of the people I see around me every day never harm me. The people who carry do a risk analysis of that 0.1% t...

re: Taurus 1911 Commander in .45 - bapple
I’ve seen two different Taurus 1911s break extractors. They follow the same formula as any other 1911 but their quality control isn’t as good as other manufacturers. I’d strongly sugggest the Ruger 1911 commander though. Best bang for buck. ...

re: Geissele Trigger PSA $139 at Brownells - bapple
Any AR10/LR308 based rifle that can run an AR15 trigger can run this one. I have a Larue MBT in my Aero Precision M5 308. I don’t understand how some guys can leave a factory milspec trigger in their rifles when these awesome triggers are available for a little over a Benjamin. ...

re: Bump stocks have been banned - bapple
The killer in Vegas could have bump-fired with anything. Bump-firing is an action that does not need a device to perform. Are they going to outlaw planks of wood that people have used to bump fire? I have no interest in owning a bump stock but the precedent it sets is ominous. Are they going to...

re: PSA - Shield 9mm $250 (Until 12/10) - bapple
[quote]Is changing the trigger a job a person can do at home or should they take it to a professional? [/quote] The shield is probably the same process as the full sized, just with everything being a bit smaller. You have to remove the rear sight to change out the striker block so you just need ...
