I carry mine to the range in hard cases and some in soft cases, always unloaded with breech flags inserted, some ranges want the action visibly open and say latched open even though some firearms don't latch open, but the safety flags have never been a problem and serve the same purpose.

As for at home storage, it's my opinion that it should always be the homeowners responsibility and choice as to how they store and safeguard their weapons, " BUT KNOW YOUR LOCAL LAWS " local laws vary greatly.

There are plenty of good options if you have children, for instance you could have a "ready safe" with a key code lock that contains loaded firearms and loaded magazines that can be retrieved quickly with the entry of an unlock code.

There is no need to employ a safeguard that compromises the readiness of the weapon unless it's all someone has and they decide it's necessary for child proofing in their home. But some Cities have storage laws, so again know your local laws.

As for transporting again " KNOW YOUR LOCAL LAWS " they vary greatly and change from time to time.
Interstate transport is another matter all together as there is peaceable journey included in our Constitutional rights, in my State you can carry in your vehicle a loaded pistol in plain view or in a glove box without any permit needed, however rifles must be transported unloaded in a vehicle, however you can open carry a long gun loaded without any permit needed.

Now in California a firearm must be unloaded and locked in a case that's cable locked to a seat bracket and you many not carry a single round of ammunition while transporting a firearm.

My point to all readers who don't already know is these laws change and are not the same State to State, so know the law.

I am very safety conscious, but I also have at the ready loaded weapons as is my right, and I know it's my responsibility to make certain that a visitor with a child can't access those weapons.

The reason I save some of those silly cable locks is just in case things change and I find myself needing one, things change and it's best to be prepared.

Bought my CCW carry pistol. Decided on the Glock 19 gen 4. I like the pistol grip rear options and went with the beaver tail. Feels perfect in my hand. I also like the finger grooves the gen 4 has. Im going to replace the trigger with Haley Strategic's trigger group. It duplicates the trigger action of a 1911 which IMO is one of the best triggers I've ever shot. I wish I never sold my Colt 1991 A1.

Default Re: Gun Discussion

So when you rack it you don't have the DA sensation of compressing the striker spring? It's as if you have already fired the 1st shot and are at the reset to start with?

I don't know if I would EDC that unless you were going to carry without one in the pipe, which I don't recommend, that's the real beauty of the Glock is having one in the pipe and having that safe action DA style pull for the 1st shot, I have practiced enough that I can feel the short reset and blaze away reset to reset after that 1st pull through as that is the only safety other than the trigger bar deal and the drop safety that could be lost if you remove the pretravle, and where would that sit with the kit, is it already past the trigger safety bar? It would just about have to be, or do you remove it?

I will look it up but that sounds scary for EDC unless you carry without one in the pipe, which again is a bad idea for 2 reasons, one being in some States the act of racking is considered time enough for you to retreat.

I will have too look that up and see how it works but the factory Glock is a good set up, some people install the lower weight set and polish all the contact points to a mirror shine, but doing away with the safe action for the 1st shot if that's what that kit does sounds like a risk and if the bar is pre traveled you could lose the drop safety.

BTW
I have a 1911 that I bought from a individual at a gun show that has such a light trigger that it's dangerous, I remember the 1st time I shot it, I loaded it and racked a round and when I just touched the trigger I got an instant double tap.

Now it's a great hole puncher at the range, but in a real life or death adrenaline pumping situation that trigger is way too light in my opinion.

I do love my Glocks, both model 22's Gen 3 as they are at the ready safe action, no fumbling when needed and the factory pull and reset are just fine for EDC, now my AR's I like a light pull with zero take up and virtually no over travel with a short crisp reset so I can lay down some rounds.
There's a grip screw you can order from Brownelles that has a hollow core with a threaded center long screw so you can tune your over travel, I use non permanent Loctite on most everything, and a KIDD or Volquartsen in your 10/22 is great, but for EDC pistols I like at least 5-6 pounds just for safety sake.

----edit----

http://www.haleystrategic.com/haley-...kimmer-trigger

Says it reduces the 1st shot travel, but it may not eliminate it and 5.5 pounds is fine....I was just thinking about that ultra polished 1911 in condition 1 without any safety...yikes

----edit----

Yes it should be fine, they didn't remove all the pre travel and the drop safety is not disabled where it sits they said, you know the round button on the inside of the upper that the hicky on the trigger bar engages, I wondered if they changed the factory geometry to really shorten it and still not pre disable the drop safety, but I don't think so, it looks like just polished factory parts and they give you a slightly lighter pull weight, but if the reset is shorter as well that could be nice, but I don't even notice it on mine, it's already pretty short although my brother in law says his Gen 2 is different feeling so maybe on a Gen 4 it really helps if they lengthened it, looks safe though.

You can learn to bump fire not that it's useful for anything, but with just a " 25 cent trigger job " Brandon here has a technique, I think he holds one finger behind the trigger as well to reduce the reset travel as well.

Default Re: Gun Discussion

@Redcowboy- you we're correct sorry I should have explained the features of the trigger better.
I have always liked the simplicity yet safe design of the Glocks. I always carry with one in the pipe. In fact I feel its foolish not too. I went with the G19 as it is a decent size for concealed carry but when I have the money I am going to buy the M&P sub compact 9mm. Cabela's had a factory upgraded model with fiber optic front sights and enhanced trigger. The trigger was incredibly smooth with a crisp break. I loved it. But having only the funds for one or the other ATM I prefered a high capacity over single stack and will deal with the extra bulk till summer time.
I was interested in the Walther CCP but the M&P caught my eye and of the two, I much prefered the feel of the M&P.
Do you have any experience with either of those sub compacts Cowboy?

Also for those in support to restoring our 2nd amendment rights this petition still needs more signatures before Feb 19th to require a formal response from the White House.
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/repeal-nfa

Also I urge gun enthusiast and defenders of the 2nd to look into the Hearing Protection Act bill which will be going before the House and Senate very soon. It will remove sound suppressors from the NFA and make them available to buy with simply the Universal Background check like buying a firearm. We still need 6 more yay votes in the Senate to get it to President Trumps desk in which he has said he will happily sign it. Suppressed hunting is a fast growing sport and is good for the environment not being disrupted and stressing out the animals as well as protecting hunters hearing. As any hunter knows its not too often you have the time to fumble to put on hearing protection. Also It is a good thing to educate those not familiar with these devices as Hollywood BS has people thinking they make a gun silent with the James Bond-ish pew pew report. This is not the case. It simply makes the report ear safe and I see no reason why suppressors should require a tax stamp, 9-16 months wait and a shit load of paper work. The term "silencer" is misleading and a anti gun protectionist propaganda term used to mislead the public. I have written both my US Senators a polite email explaining my reasons to support this bill and why I feel they should too. If you do email your representatives always be polite and professional.
Thanks

We finally have a pro 2nd President and although I did not vote for the man he is my president and I hope he does the things he says. One of those being stopping the fact and data shown utter ineffectiveness of things like magazine bans, import bans, and attempts to tell us what guns we do and do not need. The AR 15 platform is not an assault rifle it is a sporting rifle. The assault rifle is by its original definition, full auto machine guns. The anti gunners did a bait and switch years ago with this label and its time to stop this pointless attack on our constitutional rights.

Default Re: Gun Discussion

The S&W is a good gun, I have owned a lot of Rugers and Sigs but love my Glocks, I have started to collect compacts and there is a lot available right now. I miss my super redhawk in 44mag but it was just not practical and I got a good trade for it, but it felt so good in my hands and shook the walls at the range with 1000+ foot pound loads, but 80 cents a shot and up sucks.

I use CTD cheaper than dirt to price shop then go to youtube and watch scotch or Hickok45 do testing, I have my eye on a few, if that SCCY CPX2 gets the last of it's reliability issues worked out for 249.00 I may get one, well I do love a metal frame with an external hammer and a wheel gun feels so right but they are not practical/tactical or comfortable to conceal except the air weight snubs but they are old kit really, striker fired polymers are the way of the future and they just flat out work, the flex built into the polymer lowers lends to high reliability and it outlasts metal that fractures in long use testing such as rental guns at ranges.

There's a bargain Smith I see for 299.00 but the rounds rattle in the mags, but they do work otherwise. SD9VE, that's the rattler, you have to do your homework as there are so many Glock style guns now, century and zastava have some good reviews on some nice looking guns, I still like a full metal pistol LOL.

I think my next buy will be a compact 9, 40 or 45 but I have so much 9 and 40 ammo it's hard to justify 45 when 9 and 40 will do fine and cost's less to shoot at the range.

Here's CTD

https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/cate...d&pp=30&page=3

Here's CTD if you don't already know them, they will ship to a local FFL so you can buy online and pick it up locally, there will be a 10-20 dollar added charge but it's worth it if you don't have a superstore nearby, here Adventure outdoors has great deals and is 30 miles away but CTD is a good desktop resource for seeing what's available, and now that the election is over much is getting back into stock....man people bought the store our before the election, I picked up half a dozen things myself, sucks that I can't afford everything I want but we can price shop and compare to get a bargain on something cool.

This tan Century looks like urban cammo and an 18 round box , if reviews are good, that and 9mm is cheaper to shoot and it's plenty effective in the real world 9,40 and 45 are all 95% 1st shot stoppers, 45 just costs more to shoot and you won't find an 18 round box as standard.

Default Re: Gun Discussion

I'm with you on 45 acp. It really is a dream round other than the bulk it adds to compacts. But for me it shoots as clean and easy as 9mm. I have small hands so as I said beforem .40 cal and of coarse 10mm are not a good fit for me.

I buy my ammo mostly from CTD. They have the best prices I have found but like everywhere get sold out for bulk ammo. In fact Im swapping barrrels on my AR from 300 BLK to .223 because although there are now affordable 1000 round bundles of 300 blk the wait time is killing me. On ideal weekends I shoot 500+ rounds and have been on a 7 week hold over due to ammo lead time from Ozark. 1000 rounds for $400 seemed like 300 blk was now an option for steady training but this is getting frustrating.

I choose 9mm for comfort but also because I have the MPX. So when BLK is out of stock I can still train primary and secondary drills with my sig and Glock. I love the MPX but the Marine in me always wants to improve my skill set with the AR platform.

Im fortunate that my best mate is a retired Force Recon veteran who has been such a wealth of knowledge and helping me improve my skill set but the ammo cost is like other sports I have dove into is significant. But with our schedules not always aligning although we try for weekly days in the forest it often is once or twice a month. Bench shooting is fun but adding movement and primary to secondary drills, malfunction clearing, tac reloads ext is an absolute blast.

I bought 3 free standing target stands and a 100 pack of Vtac targets. If you haven't seen these targets google them. They are pretty cool. They have the standard milspec silhouette box man but then a photo realistic water mark human skeleton inside the box so you can see where you rounds are hitting. Helpful on pelvis shots and such.

Spent sometime at a shooting range a couple of weeks ago. Really can't say which of the two I prefer more, the 1911, or the glock 19. With either I can hit the center X circle at 30 feet. 1911 feels more comfortable, but the added capacity of the glock is hard to overlook.

As soon as that fool broke out the knife to go with the gun, it was pretty clear he had no idea what he was doing. The Transformers mask adds to how ridiculous it is. Glad that customer got him.

That said, several people in the fast food industry I know have had to deal with this sort of thing, so I feel bad for them.

Yep, definitely a win for the good guys!
It's probably a good thing that an employee didn't step in and help, since they would be fired for violating company policy.

I wonder how the robber is doing?

I'm glad a lot of these bad guys are so very stupid, but that goes to figure.

I haven't been following the news as much as I used to, but with what happened in Vegas recently, feel it's worth bumping this thread.

Feel terrible for the people there, just at the wrong place, at the wrong time.
