re: Where to get plate steel in Baton Rouge - bapple
[quote] Their half inch plate will stop fmj.308 at 10ft out of a 24 inch barrel[/quote] It’s more important what happens to the plate after being shot by a rifle than whether or not the bullet is just stopped. If the 1/2 plate dimples and becomes concaved very quickly it can become dangerous to ...

You probably meant to say “straight-walled [b]and[/b] .35 and up” since 35 Whelan is a bottle-necked round. Just wanted to clarify a potential confusion. ...

re: Which Glock For My GF? - bapple
[quote]DarthTiger[/quote] I apologize if it seems like I directed that comment directly at you. It’s just an extremely common thing I hear when people are wedded to a gun that doesn’t necessarily fit them. Maybe that’s not you and sorry if it came off that way. The way you describe the grip n...

re: Ammo Can? - bapple
I carry and store all my ammo in ammo cans because it’s very convenient to travel with them. I have a few wraps of duct tape around the handle on each can to make it more comfortable and duct tape lining the inside or each can to make them not so loud. It also has the added benefit of not beating up...

re: My Louisiana CCP timeline - bapple
[quote] The notary I went to had a 'package deal' for like $40 for CC.[/quote] That’s still unbelievably cost prohibitive to exercise a constitutional right. So it’s $100-$150 for a class, $125 for the permit ($175 if you haven’t been a resident for 15 years), plus $40 for notarized forms, and it...

re: Which Glock For My GF? - bapple
[quote] I wouldn’t have to worry about grip adjustment with the G19 but I don’t like the Shield’s grip, it’s too thin[/quote] If you don’t like the grip of the shield you won’t like the grip of the G43. All single stacks are built to have super slim grips so they fit easily inside the waistband. ...

re: Reloading equipment help. - bapple
Surprised I didn't see this... Here's my very old reloading tutorial. I filmed it about 8 years ago so a few of the components have been upgraded but overall I still use the same method. My best piece of advice though - spend the coin and get a stainless tumbler. It's expensive up front but yo...

re: Anyone here own an FN57? - bapple
[quote]Consider the Ruger before your drop the coin. [/quote] +1 The FN is fun because the round is fun out of a handgun. Honestly though, the build quality leaves a lot to be desired from the plastic safety lever to the almost fully-plastic slide. And this isn't to badmouth FN because I own ...

re: At 21 feet all my shots were low..... - bapple
As others have said, buy dummy rounds or snap caps and get someone to load your mags for you. When you don't know where the round is you can catch your flinch if you have one. You'd be surprised how effective this method is....

re: Which Glock For My GF? - bapple
[quote]The double stacks are pretty thick and are not an iwb option for me.[/quote] If you're getting her a double stack Glock, they essentially all have the same width throughout the grip and are not that comfortable for females with smaller hands. The Glock 48 is based on a single stack design ...

re: Light Temperatures for Hallway - bapple
For indoor spaces, 2700k-3000k is always preferred. 4000k-5000k will appear too blue and can mess with your circadian rhythms and cause you to not sleep as well. Since the higher kelvin temperature simulated sunlight our eyes will perceive it as sunlight and act as such. For laundry rooms and la...

[quote]Anyone shot or have an opinion on American Eagle 5.56 62 Gr FMJ Steel Core[/quote] If you’re just shooting recreationally that would work just fine. Know they’ll be a bit more abusive to steel targets but that’s about it. For self defense I’d suggest something else. ...
