Florida School Hires 2 Combat Veterans to Take Down Active Shooters

Don't know if everyone got a chance to see this in the news this week, but thought it was interesting. Looks like they are running Kel-Tec RDB's and Glock 19X's. Unsure from the picture if they are running body armor or some type of chest rig. Florida School Hires 2 Combat Veterans to Take Down Acti...

Re: FN 57 Magazines dissected ***added more pictures***

Great pictures of the comparison.
I wonder if anyone has ever attempted to make an after market mag follower?

I was looking at a orange 5th gen Glock mag the other day and got wondering that. I seen the gray one in the start of the thread but don't recall ever seeing any others.

Re: magazine questions

Good video review on them by Jay. Pretty much covers it. Even with the spring replaced, it had problems fitting correctly. Seen this during the ban days with the Ruger Mini-14 mags. Factory mags were expensive then, so I tried to rebuild some of the cheap pre-ban 20 round aftermarket with good sprin...

Re: Taurus TX22 Pistol in .22LR Announced

Here is the Youtube review of the TX22 pistol.
It is nice to see some .22 caliber products being introduced again. If they work, I think they will be a big seller.

Taurus TX22 Pistol in .22LR Announced

Looks like Taurus is making a 16-round-full-size polymer .22 caliber handgun.
Reminds me of the Steyr somehow. Looks like fun.

Re: Deal alert on [email protected] 9mm

I noticed Palmetto State also has it on sale today. However, it is in a different box and lot number. One type of box is the black and tan and the other is the green and red. Both are 115 grain. Never thought about it,but wonder if S&B runs a commercial and military line ? Anyone know? $159 a case s...

Deal alert on [email protected] 9mm

A excellent deal on [email protected] 9mm at Brownell's. I've run several cases of this and been happy.

Re: Fightlight Multicaliber Pistol & Rifles

It still looks interesting though.

Can’t imagine going between 10mm and 5.7x28mm on the same platform. Don’t think you would have to worry about keeping your mags separate like the .300blk. Lol

AR Trigger / Hammer Jig

I thought this AR trigger jig was pretty interesting. It would be neat if you have a new shooter(or old) and they struggle to understand how to reassembly a lower. It would handy to practice assembling your trigger group or making sure everything is working the way you want before reassembly. https:...

Re: Fightlight Multicaliber Pistol & Rifles

A interesting concept. Hope it materializes and works out. Reminds me of the Brugger and Thomet GHM9 crossed with Tec-9. Looks like more and more companies are starting to look at marketing similar carbine designs due to the popularity of the CZ Scorpion. I understand the quick barrel change after s...

Re: 2018 Fallen Hero Wreath Laying Ceremony Fort Sheridan Cemetery.

Just finished watching the ceremony on YouTube. Very emotional at the end.

If anyone has kids, this is worth showing them and explaining the sacrifice that has been paid.

Re: New CZ-P-10 pistols being released

I was reading the AK forum and they had a lengthy post of the CZ-P10. Lots of good reviews and video clips on the CZ-P10.

Re: FN 40GR V-MAX - SS197SR

I was scanning SG ammo sales earlier and noticed they had a sale going on this. I don’t FN is going anywhere but it makes you wonder if Federal knows that there is new firearms in this caliber coming or some other insider insight. *Note. I am not recommending a .40 grain FMJ for defensive carry. Thi...

Re: FN 40GR V-MAX - SS197SR

2 different types of ammo.
The 197 is made by Fiocchi under contract for FN Herstal. It is loaded with a Hornady V-Max projectile instead of a FMJ.

Re: American Eagle Ammunition

It works. Probably good ammo overall.
I wouldn't put it in the same class as some of the other loads for defense though.
