re: 9310 vs C158 bolts, which is better? - bapple
How common is a bolt/BCG failure? I honestly don’t think I’ve ever seen one in my life and I’ve done lots of shooting. Then again I’ve never been in the sandbox overseas so maybe that’s where they’re more prone to failure. ...

re: 9mm for my wife - bapple
[quote]You can always work up to a Glock 20 if she wants.[/quote] A Glock 20 is a different animal in itself. I didn't say a new shooter should shoot a 10mm. I said virtually anyone can reasonably shoot a full sized 9mm. A revolver has 3 main advantages over a semi auto: 1. Can shoot high p...

[quote]A revolver for a women's home defense gun is a good idea.[/quote] I don’t understand the prevailing opinion that women are complete idiots and can’t handle a semi auto handgun. Baffles me. I’ve been teaching CC for years and have yet to find a single woman who insisted on shooting her ...

re: 9mm for my wife - bapple
I’ll quote a post I made years ago about this topic. The conclusion - there is no advantage to a tiny gun other than concealability. Ive been teaching CC classes for 8 years and the fan favorite is usually my wife’s VP9 for being full sized and having a slim grip. ——————————— [quote]From myse...

[quote] I'll tell her that next time we shoot.. The issue is it seems to throw every other round super low. Granted this is a new gun, but I've found it to be a bit off than what I'm used to. I told her that if anything some dude that attempts to attack you will end up getting his dick shot off. [/...

re: Any one shot a HK VP9? - bapple
I made this review video a few years ago but it’s still relevant today. The PPQ has a better factory trigger but overall shootability probably goes to the VP9 by a hair. I’d probably buy the PPQ for the trigger but my wife already has a VP9 anyway :lol: [link=(https://youtu.be/QacK1RevOjI)]PPQ vs...

re: Forbes: Americans Are Spending Their Stimulus Checks On Guns - bapple
Part-time Concealed Carry Instructor here. Reality has slapped many normal people in the face in 2020. The biggest reasons people took my classes in 2020 were because of covid and rioting. They realized that the person ultimately responsible for you is you and having a force multiplier like a fi...
