Come fellow firearm owners, we must chat.

I blame this thread for coaxing me back into checking GWJ every spare hour and twice in-between. Well done!

He's taken the bait. Now spring the trap!

I found a bayonet attachment for the CZ-75 SP-01. >.<

Thin_J: Have you seen the metal glock? Maybe something you want to look into.

edit: Ruger just emailed me back with info on my P-89 and they say I have a Model:KP89X, 9 mm caliber, with an extra barrel for the 30 Luger caliber. Shipped: March of 1995. I don't see a link to the model on Ruger's site.

edit: Fixed link.

Yeah, I've never even heard of it.

I went through the closet to see what my actual inventory is and there are guns here I didn't know where in the house.

Pics to all of them.

I as told there are about another twenty or so firearms that haven't been transferred to me yet so this is still an incomplete list. I need to find out if I have to register all of these with the local PD and whatever other laws there are. Any thoughts or opinions on any of these? I'm not too interested in keeping all of these (too many guns!) so I need to find a value on all of them and which ones are worth keeping versus selling for better ones (HK45, Springfield M1A, others on wishlist).

Just got off the phone with Browning customer service and my Hi Power is from 1969. Supposedly their best year. Very interesting.

30 Luger? How obscure for a modern pistol.

I've read about that metal Glock. It made me giggle.

A bayonet? Really?

Who would buy one? I don't get it.

That's cool about your Hi Power though.

The bayonet is pretty silly. I've seen it and it is made of pot metal.

Any thoughts on ammo? I'd like to take the BHP to the range and check it out since the Bass Pro Shop range is just up the street. Or should I buy elsewhere for cheaper on another brand they don't carry?

Check out the ammo at Georgia Arms. They do fantastic bulk work and have great prices. It's also nice to get your ammo in metal 30 cal ammo boxes.

In the past, I've found good deals on ammo locally at Academy Sports. They have 250 round boxes of Remington FMJ ammo for pretty cheap. It's good quality ammo. I've shot up several thousand rounds of this stuff, and it's at a price you won't be able to get buying individual boxes.

Other than that, I've used ammoman.com for bulk rounds before, and have no complaints about them.

I've gotten three seperate orders from Ammoman and one from Ammunition To Go and all have gone smoothly. Both tend to outprice each other on occasion, so I just jump back and forth between the two and whichever has the best deal on what I want at the time gets the business.

Can someone explain to me what need is there for a scope on a shotgun?

Honestly I can't imagine what good it would be unless you're using it for hunting, in which case I could see it being a small help.

For home defense though, it seems like a tac light would make a hell of a lot more sense.

That's not really a scope. It's a red dot sight and a pretty wide aperature on at that. The idea is that it helps with target acquisition, especially in the dark when it is often difficult to see the front sight. It isn't quite as expensive or sophisticated as the EOTech red dot sight on the AR15 pictured below it, but it effectively serves the same purpose.

As said before, the spread on a shotgun is not as fantastical as most believe. And a red dot scope like that will be especially helpful if firing slugs.

Yup. About 4" at 30 feet for legal barrel lengths. Hardly the "can't miss" scatter that Hollywood would like you to believe. In most cases, you're probably better off with the slugs.

Depends on your choke too. Is that an interchangeable choke system at the end of the Mossberg or some kind of flash suppressor?

This is the one I want. Simplicity and functional in one.

The owner said it was a "Mossy 930 Auto w/ Choate Pistol Grip Stock and 3 shot extension"

I think everybody knew it was a red dot and just using the "incorrect" term for it. I'm assuming there, so maybe wrong, but I'd say it's kind of like the use of "clip" in reference to magazines. We haven't been nitpicking that stuff up until now so it seems silly to start here

I still don't like the idea and would definitely prefer the more open field of view of a regular sight. The 18 inch mossberg we have is pretty damned intuitive to just point and shoot from most ranges you'd encounter in most houses. That said, whatever works best for you is what you should do. I think that goes for a lot of things when you get into personal preferences for guns.

I didn't know.

That ACOG sight alone costs more than many AR15's.

Not a choke system:

The 930 Special Purpose shotguns include the 930 Tactical and the 930 SPX. The tactical model features the all new stand-off barrel. This component is a unique 18.5 inch barrel with a "stand-off" permanently affixed to the muzzel-end. The only sight on the gun is a large white dot front sight. While the primary purpose of the stand-off is tactical breaching, it does not hamper the use of normal 00 buck or slugs.

Ouch. Yeah, $956 is a lot.

...Or 150 kills.

hahah
getting the new camo for your ar15 is a bitch. LOTS of massacres if you want to get digital.

How would you compare the AR-15 family with the AK-10x family?

Edwin wrote:

I don't have a huge amount of experience with them, but they look like 5.56NATO versions of the old AK. If you're arming an army of child mercenaries on the cheap, an AK is probably a pretty good choice. They are legendary for their field reliability and capable of tremendous volume of fire. They aren't, however, particularly accurate or ergonomically designed.

In short, if you need a couple dozen assault rifles and are on a limited budget, get the AK's. If you can afford to spend some money or are looking for something for yourself, get the AR.
