re: Looking for extremely lightweight semi-auto deer/hog hunting rifle. - bapple
You can get an AR10 at the lightest around 7-8 pounds. Any semi auto chambered in something like 308 is gonna be heavy. If you prefer 5.56 there are a lot more options and weight goes down considerably. But I’d prefer something larger for deer. Or you could go with a round like 6.8 SPC or 6....

re: purchasing a couple of hand guns, concealed carry....Recs? - bapple
[quote]I’ve shot one many times. Not hard to hit with at concealed carry distances[/quote] I think you’d be surprised at even 5-10 feet how much difficulty new shooters have with snubbies. The biggest culprit is the long trigger pull and that influences the short sight radius. What you’ll usually...

Hammer, what you need to find is a double stack with a slim grip and grip “taper.” I’ll show you in an old bookmarked post I made. ————————- [quote]And finally if she has really small hands she may have trouble with many double stack designs.[/quote] Honestly, most grips that are tapered...

re: purchasing a couple of hand guns, concealed carry....Recs? - bapple
Everything you have stated against women using a semi auto can be negated with proper training. Almost every CC class I’ve taught with a woman in it, one inevitably brings the “cute” 38 her husband got her. I insist that they bring some 9mm ammo to try in my full sized semi auto guns. I have yet...

re: Classic Car Storage - bapple
Thanks for the info so far. I’d probably think the bronco is worth more at this point as well. I don’t know if he has plans to sell it even if someone here is eager :lol: but I’ll disucss with him and get back to y’all. Both are past the point of restoration. The Bronco never needed a restor...

Classic Car Storage - bapple
So maybe you guys can give me some advice since there are many Jacks of many trades in here... My grandparents’ home in central Arkansas has two rotting classic cars that my grandma has told my dad he can take. The issue is that he doesn’t have the space in his garage to store a car and it’s a gi...

re: Best Flashlight for under $50-$60 - bapple
I also carry a Streamlight microstream daily. Excellent little light and weighs all of nothing. For a little more juice I’d step up to some of Streamlight’s larger offerings but the micro is great for EDC. I’m surprised how much I use the light and how much people need a pocket knife as well!...

re: Woodworking? Eventually want to build a guitar. - bapple
[quote] I have 2 electrics, acoustics could be an addiction.[/quote] I lean to the former but best of luck! I think a nice clean tone with some reverb is one of the most beautiful guitar sounds out there. But if you can build an acoustic you'll have my respect!...

re: Woodworking? Eventually want to build a guitar. - bapple
Electric or acousic? i think it's a pretty important question that hasn't been answered yet. I'd say for your first you should do an electric. Much simpler and you can use premium parts and pickups....

re: Best choice for a new rifle? - bapple
[quote]less than $400 [/quote] You can get a Ruger American or a Savage Axis for a decent price but then you gotta put glass on it too. I'd consider increasing your price range a bit to get some quality stuff....

re: DPMS Panther Oracle AR-15 - bapple
I guess I should’ve directed my message more to the OP than to you... :lol: I agree keeping everything genuine Colt is ideal. My reply was directed to the OP about getting a complete DPMS rifle as opposed to just a lower. ...

re: DPMS Panther Oracle AR-15 - bapple
The lower is really not the part that matters on an AR. It’s not the part that receives most of the wear and it’s hard to mess up. A rifle built on a DPMS lower and a complete DPMS rifle are very different things. The heart of an AR in terms of quality is all in the upper - bolt carrier group,...

re: DPMS Panther Oracle AR-15 - bapple
For a little more money, a Ruger AR556 or S&W M&P15 sport are a better deal. More solidly built, better accessories, better manufacturer, and better barrel than what the DPMS brings to the table. ...

re: Yellowstone Geyser Spews Out Trash Dating Back As Far As '30s - bapple
I was at Yellowstone about a month ago and it surprised me that they didn't have a sign that said "high winds" in certain areas by the geysers. We saw hats all over the ground and wondered why until we walked around. I was happy my hat was on tight enough because it was intense!...

[quote]what are your issues[/quote] Agreed. Describe in a bit more detail what is going on. Plus if you can cowitness with irons it will be pretty easy to get the dot close. Sighted mine in on my M&P in about 10 minutes and haven’t touched it in years. ...

re: Who has a H&K VP9 and do you carry it? - bapple
My wife has a VP9 but doesn’t carry it. Overall it’s an excellent firearm even though I think the PPQ (its direct competitor) has a better trigger I will say dimensionally the 15 round mag is a bit misleading. The grip is actually slightly longer than my 15 round M&P, but not by much. I think it...

[quote]Howard Leight Impacts [/quote] I have yet to see a pair go bad and I use mine all the time. They have a port if you want to plug in music or anything while on the range and they have a volume adjustment on the side so you don't have to scream when using them. You can always double up and...

Springfield TRP RMR 10mm 1911 - bapple
It's nice to see some companies still able to innovate and come up with new ideas. With the increasing popularity of pistol optics, this is a pretty interesting handgun. I would probably be more inclined to get one in 45 (if they offer it) for the lower cost per round. But the 10mm is a hoss and thi...
