Re: Czech 9mm Steel Core VS Level IIIA Armor

Good stuff as always, Buffman. You said here that this might be an option against the Hybrid IIIA vest, but I seem to remember that you had another video where some Fort Scott 9mm also went through that Hybrid vest. Am I misremembering that?

EA Website

I've been trying to access the EA website store for a few days with no luck. I'm not having trouble with any other site so I figured I'd ask directly. Is the site having some temporary glitches?

Re: H.R. 3497 proposes ban on 5.7x28 handguns and ammunition

Let's hope so, Buffman. Thus far I have an AR57 but not a FiveseveN yet. Just when I'm trying to clear funds to purchase or trade for one, I see this document.

H.R. 3497 proposes ban on 5.7x28 handguns and ammunition

I just saw this today: H.R. 3497 that seeks: "To protect the Nation’s law enforcement officers by banning the Five-seveN Pistol and 5.7 x 28mm SS190, SS192, SS195LF, SS196, and SS197 cartridges, testing handguns and ammunition for capability to penetrate body armor, and prohibiting the manufacture, ...

Re: New 5.7x28mm pistols.

That's pretty disappointing to say the least. Both companies??? Any idea what made them scrap everything they had done? Sounds like a pretty drastic thing to do...

Re: Excel Arms Accelerator Pistol 5.7x28

Has anyone ever tried cutting the barrel down on this to make it more in-line with FN length? I'm by no means an engineer so there may be all kinds of problems with trying to do that, so I'm asking in ignorance of anything like that. It seems that it would be a somewhat legitimate alternative to the...

Federal ban on 5.56

This news on the ban of M855 (green tip) ammo is disturbing. The reasoning is that since it can be used in a pistol (AR pistol that is) it poses a threat to law enforcement because they commonly wear level IIA armour that is defeated by the round. This is of course the tip of the iceberg because nea...

Re: T6B brass

Good stuff! Buffman, I was hoping you'd bite on the notion of a vid on this new iteration. What do you say; think you'll put a little something together?

T6B brass

Just got my T6B and am pretty pumped to send it down range. I noticed that the casing seems rough compared to the usual slick 5.7 case. What changed on the T6B?

Re: My New Friend: Walther PPQ M1 9mm

I have the PPQ M1 as well. IT ROCKS. I'm currently using the Bravo Concealment DOS appendix carry holster. It's very comfortable for appendix carry and conceals well. Only complaint on the holster is that it sits considerably higher than the advertised hight; maybe this is due to the shape of the fr...

Jeff, would you be willing to update us on the new pistol offering you mentioned when info becomes available? I'm sure many others in addition to myself would like to explore this option.

Re: News on new pistol variant?

Understood. If it's going to be available soon, I'll hold off and get in line for it. Or I could end up waiting quite awhile...
hmmm... :ponder: Difficult decisions.
Thanks again.
