Concerning the problem of deleting private messages, I just created a brand new forum on one of my domains and the error wasn't present. Over the weekend, I will try something, but it will require me to shut down the forum. I will try to do this at a less problematic time for you guys. I'll keep you posted but if the forum isn't available, it is because I am working on it.

Re: Favorite Carrying Style?

About 2/3 of times I just carry a "J" frame 38 Special in my front pocket using pocket holster.
Other 1/3 of times I carry a Glock 17 or 19 in a Milt Sparks Summer Special IWB holster.

Re: What are you guys lubing/cleaning your guns with?

I use Ed's Red that I mix at home to clean my bore, internals and surface of every firearm. After everything is cleaned off I use a break cleaner to blow everything out and remove any trace of oil/lube. Then I wipe everything and all metal surfaces down with Ed's Red again. Finally I lube my firearm...

Re: How a HK Love/Hate Relationship has evolved over the years.

I'm not sure why but I've never been able to warm up to HK pistols except their P7 series. I tried their USP series when they came out but never kept any as they didn't offer anything to me that wasn't available from other pistols of the time. First HK Pistol I purchased was a P7M8 which I liked and...

I’m sure on gen 6 they’ll go back to thin slide and 3 pins

Re: Is it possible to hunt big games using AR 15?

I've successfully hunted deer and hogs with my AR pistol and carbines in .223/5.56 caliber without any problem.
For larger game like elk or moose an AR-10 in .308 Winchester should work just fine.

Re: Jeff Cooper opines on the Beretta M9's adoption. Or, how he shows he was just a curmudgeon.

Having owned couple Beretta 92 series pistols in past 30 years, in my experience it's the only pistol that have never had any kind of failure...not one, not even a failure of slide to lock back after last round. My issues with the 92 series pistol for long time was the large grip and long trigger re...

Re: Range Bag...

Range doesn’t provide target stands, cardboard backing, stapler, etc?
What kind of range is that?

Re: Legality of home made hollowpoints?

No, it's perfectly legal to make his own HP out of ball/FMJ or other solid bullets. While he can legally make them I bet he will be disappointed with their performance. It takes a lot more just a hole at the tip of the bullet to make them expand and penetrate. Bullet makers spend a lot of money to d...

Re: Out of Stock! - Should I wait?

With the market situation being what it is now it would be a bad business decision to hold anything in the warehouse now if you can sell it. I don't think any prudent business person is going to hold inventory if it will sell now.
