Guns 'n Gear / Re: G43 - thoughts on owning one for CCW?
« on: January 07, 2017, 01:28:31 AM »
I own a 938 and have had issues with a second round being partially removed from the mag so you have to force the magazine out.  SIG claims it is an ammo problem and won't do anything.

Batons flex.  They don't bend.  I own several that were given to me that have all sorts of scarring from use over years but aren't bent.

I'm not impressed until they get into the .44 mag game again.

Guns 'n Gear / CC women's holsters
« on: January 06, 2017, 10:58:37 PM »
My cousin just turned 21 and so I gave her one of my G19s since she likes it so much.  I was hoping to get some female opinion on holsters or concealment locations for her.  She's 5'10 130lbs if that helps.  I've tried to point her in the direction of AIWB.  I'm thinking of getting her either a gcode or a raven concealment for her and see if she likes it.

Guns 'n Gear / Precision Long Range
« on: August 01, 2016, 03:35:13 AM »
What is everyone's favorite gear for shooting long range?  What rifle, optic, muzzle device, and rounds are you folks using?  Oh and how far is your longest successful shot?
My preferred system is my Sauer SSG 3000, NightForce NSX 5.5-22, Spuhr mount, McMillan chassis, and a Rugged Suppresors Surge 7.62 to go on the end of it.  I'm shooting 1/4 MOA groups using the Hornady A-Max 178 gr.  I've gone out to a little over 1,400 yards with it and am definitely pleased with the gun.
 This is a older picture of my SSG 3000.  I also own a Savage 93R17 that's about 1/2 MOA and a 110BA in .338 Lapua that I haven't really put to good use yet.

I shoot in the mountains of SW MT.  I'm able to reach out to as far as I want which lets me push my long range game out farther and farther.

With one pistol in hand, and $500 to spend, I'd get more ammo for the pistol and practice more and maybe seek out some training.
All the training and ammo in the world doesn't give a pistol an effective range of much more than 25 yards.

I'm proficient with my 22/45 out to about 50 yards and with my Glock 34 I can easily hit 100 yards.  I'm able to shoot to about 400 yards with my .44 mag.  I've even hit hogs as far as 325 yards with my .44.  Handguns are as accurate as the user.

At one point Mec Gar made SIG mags as I had one come with one of my certified Pre owned P226 Navy's.  Never had a single issue with it at all.

I second the Ruger 10/22 as a choice.  The factory length of pull is not going to be too long for you and you will be spending quite a bit less than the $500 so you can get ammo and other goodies to go with it like spare magazines and a case.

How can it be about LGBT rights if in the same sentence they want to take away our rights?

Yes I would also like to know what state and local areas are depriving people of their rights without due process.

This is a good explanation of why the RATS is not a good idea.
The TL;DR of it is that they really aren't CoTCCC approved and have never been proved to work.  I would much rather carry the extra bulk of a combat proven system.

I'm preferential to Monadnock batons.  Batons require their own training and aren't really a self defense tool.

I like to keep a small medical kit in my vehicle's boot (ok, ok - trunk!) with supplies suitable for trauma such as a car-crash or even a gun-shot wound - no matter where I am, my vehicle is usually nearby and on the range I attach the pouch to my range-bag.

I hadn't repacked my kit in a few years so to this end I bought a new 5x7" pouch and fresh supplies including tourniquet, nasopharyngeal tube/lube, Ceelox and Quik-Clot blood-clotting gauze and powder, Israeli bandage, chest seals, etc, etc.

In a few weeks I'll be taking a tactical combat casualty medical course which is known to be stressful during the exercises but should be fun. Anybody else doing anything?

Tourniquets are supposed to be wide to spread out pressure.  I would recommend doing more research into your choice of tourniquets.  The one you chose will be more likely to need limb removal than a standard because it's so thin.

So far things are going well for me from my iPhone other than accidentally trying to upload an image that's too big and losing my post.  Thankfully I always copy a post before trying to go live with it so it was a quick fix.
