Re: Whats in your range bag?

First thing on my agenda this morning is head to Wally's place and pick up one. May add some other gear to it. Something you never think will happen. You read about it on line and then it happens when you are there. Makes you more concerned about range safety more then ever. Last night I kept going ...

Whats in your range bag?

Every one has a first aid kit as part of their range bag, correct? None of us today at the range did and we had a shooter catch a ricochet off of the pistol range which got him while he was shooting on the rifle range 30 yds away. He wasn't hurt seriously, but it did bleed a lot. The ricochet caught...

Re: Star BM from 09-2017 batch of LEO imports J&G Sales

One of my favorite pistols to shoot. Love how accurate the pistol is. I shoot best with it using 124 grain or heavier bullets. For being a commander sized pistol is darn accurate.

Vacuum Sealing Firearms

With recent events in Houston Texas and a possible hurricane hitting the east coast in the near future, has got me to wondering if vacuum sealing my firearms is a good idea.

Re: Chinese Army Makarov red bakelite grips

I wish now I had never listened to my ex, putting extra money into savings instead invested in all those $99 EG Makarovs that were available oh so close to both of us back in the mid 1990s. We could have retired by now......

Chinese Army Makarov red bakelite grips

Back when I first started collecting Makarovs in the mid 1990s, I came across a Chinese Army Makarov at a local gun show. The seller claims it was a Vet bring back from Vietnam. He wanted too much money for it I thought back then. Boy was a I fool, could have had an extremely rare Makarov for under ...

Re: Star BM with Aluminum Frame

I can across a BKM over the winter at a local gun shop. Price for it was $450. Bit steep for a Star pistol in my opinion.

Re: Roll Back Issues

The other night the software used to run this forum did an auto update. It messed with the settings of the forum. We are working to put things back the way they were. Its like "We are from the government and we are here to help." Be patient with us and we will get through this.
