I figure if we can get a lot of people to do this it might help, so the more people we can get to do this the better.

I ordered some stuff from Ruger and they sent me that link and I have sent it to a lot of people.

Thanks for participating!

This thread is one of the reasons I want to visit the USA. Do you have like gun ranges where tourists can shoot (maybe even at full auto)?

Here guns are really tightly regulated and the only realistic way to get one is to know some shady people.

And, yes. Some of them have guns that you can "rent"

Peace,

I think, given the nature of this site, that these are slightly more relevant than the rest of you.:p No offense. I'd never insult one more heavily armed than myself, and some of you apparently are:gun:

I dont want to start some glock-beretta debate, but I think this is one of the best 9mm setups one could get. PX4 Storm (regular,not compact or sub-compact. if that's not obvious)

the beam shot was a short exposure, I used my towel rack to hold it steady, which is why the beam appears like it might be over 5mW. If it is over, it's not by a lot. this sight has very good divergence, as you would hope from something designed to improve accuracy, which it does. If this laser is pointed at you, chances are your eyesight is currently the least of your worries

Also, I had this before Colorado got scared and decided they could sleep better at night if only everyone were limited to 15 rounds, so grandfather laws apply. It's only two more anyway.:angel:
Stay safe out there!!!
Edit: I flipped back through more pages on this thread and see I am not the only one with a laser sight. still, thought there'd be more. with beamshots

Looks like you got lucky and found one. I want a 308 in an AR platform. It needs to have a heavy or bull barrel though. There isn't much to chose from ATM though. And the prices are still high.

My Stepson has the same setup and I can honestly say it's the finest 9mm I have ever had the chance to shoot.

those rotating barrels make a lot of difference, sooo smooth. last time I took it to the range, I let this couple shoot it. they had been shooting a 1911 .45 cal. Only 10 rounds in those, and they couldn't hit s***, but with my beretta...

One of my favorite is my Virginia Dragoon in 44 mag, here is my friend shooting it, it dose have a bit of a kick as you can
see by the expression on his face, the cool thing is it never jams, it fires every time you pull the trigger ;)


one of my favorite rifles is my SKS here I am popping off a few.


And the best for last is an auto 12 Saiga made by Automatic Kalashnikov, if you look close you can see 4 each 12 gauge shells in the air :eg:
That's a 10 round magazine.


I caught this picture at our last shoot, I thought it was good advertising for Automatic Kalashnikov ;)
That's my auto 12 and friends AK-47


Have fun and keep squeezing the trigger :D

I am by no means a gun expert, but of the repeaters I have fired, it's my favorite. The only thing I don't like about it is that the sights are so solidly dovetailed in, they are nearly impossible to budge.

I took it to a gun smith. he put my slide in a press, then used a punch to try and adjust it. IT WOULDN'T BUDGE! It seems you need a special hydraulic tool from beretta to move it, naturally these run around $130.

I personally would prefer an all-metal frame, but as the song goes, you can't always get what you want, and the polymer is light weight.

Those are my only gripes. Everything else is perfect. the gun came with three different handle pieces to adjust it's fit in your hand, the medium one works fine for me. everyone who shoots it says they love the way it feels in their hand.

It has never jammed on me. the rotating barrel not only significantly reduces recoil, but assists in shell ejection.

It has ambidextrous safety, as the pics show, this rotates a portion of the firing pin out of line with the rest of the pin, making firing impossible. it also has a safety against accidental discharge, a little cylinder visible on top of the slide only un-blocks the firing pin when the trigger is pulled. if you drop it cocked and the hammer hits, it won't fire unless the trigger is somehow also pulled in the fall.

It has reversible magazine release. magazine capacity options are 10, 15, 17, and 20, though the 17 round ones are the ones it normally comes with, what I have. the rest must be ordered and state laws could get in the way depending. I imagine places with high capacity restrictions would either not sell this gun or sell it with the reduced capacity mags. Colorado now has a 15 round limit, but I had this before that, so ha ha.

It also has a chambered indicator, you can tell if it's loaded or not without pulling back the slide. naturally the manual says to pull it back to check anyway. this indicator is also part of the ejection system.

Taking it apart is so easy, it can be field stripped in less than 5 seconds, it is impossible to reassemble incorrectly, if it fits, it's right. elegant design.

One quirk. If you chamber a round, then put in a full mag, you need to push forward on the bottom of the mag until you hear a click. the mag will fall out otherwise. I guess it's a tight fit. this only happens in these circumstances and you just have to remember to push forward.

A while back the U.S. military had an event to see if they would change the official side arm. they did not change, but this pistol performed the best. I believe the reasons it was rejected are these:

Non-metal body. Not the easiest gun to chamber a single round with in absence of a mag, though it is possible it's not recommended. If you are familiar with the beretta M9, you know how easy it is to do this on these, and they have the all-metal body. I believe those are the only reasons the military doesn't carry these now.

Wow that was long. does that answer your question Livinloud? Beretta should pay me for that.
