So, I have a huge boner for this M&P 9 C Shield...but I'm starting to think I don't want a thumb safety. If I get a good holster with a tension adjuster thingy, is it crazy to not want a thumb safety? If someone ambushes me or jumps my ---- from behind, I might not have time to hit the safety and fire.

Also, any thoughts on a good light for the M&P rail?

I think he is refering to hunting laws. Quite a few states require that rifles be limited to 5 rounds for hunting.

Oddly, I don't think California is one of them.

I've made some 2 round en block clips for high-power matches. The process is the same for 5 rounds. I can't remember where I saw the how-to; it may have been on the CMP forum.

Anyone try the Walther PPQ yet? I've seen nothing but gushing praise for it over the past few months. I don't think it's on the Cali roster yet, though, and my wife is dead-set on the XD in 40 anyway.

Yep, I've seen templates online but it escapes me at the moment.

CTD sells them for $7.97/ea but I've made them myself by modifying 8rnd en blocs when needed.



For those who live in "free states" be thankful you don't have to deal with the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale in California There are ways around it, but it suxorz.

Got my Ruger SR22 yesterday and have 5000 rounds of CCI SV sitting here. Too rainy to go to the range.

These are back in stock again at Buds... although they're $70 more than I paid, if you're in the market for a .22lr, this rifle is hard to beat.

Savage MkII FV-SR. There are other MkII models out there for cheaper, but the threaded heavy barrel and rail on this one finally sold me. It's as accurate out to 200yds as my buddies CZ for way less money.


CDNN was having a sale on 10rd mags a few days ago, but it's over... still a good deal even at $16.99ea and $10 flat shipping for your whole order. They do have periodic deals on shipping though, but better to wait until you've got a lot of stuff to buy and save.

I shot the SR22 yesterday. It is hard to feel the difference between the SR22 and the P22 when shooting. You know the SR has better construction and engineering in the back of your mind when you are shooting though. I did not do any accuracy testing because my eyes are so bad that I can't really see where the holes are if I move the target too far away.

I also got to shoot the CCI Standard Velocity. I was kind of nervous when I opened the first box because that it a lot of ammo to buy without testing it first but I am now happy with the purchase. The groupings were tighter with the new ammo and you can actually feel the difference when shooting it as well. The ammo has less of a sharp crack and less recoil than what I have been shooting. Interestingly, I had to adjust my sights because the new ammo had a 1" drop at 25 yards compared to the other stuff I was shooting.

For reference, the large circle is the size of a quarter. You can cover each of my groups at the top with a penny:

The shots on top were the CCI SV ($0.044 per round or $240 shipped per 5000 rounds) and the shots on the bottom were the cheap Federal Bulk Pack in the red box from Walmart:

I have always had good luck with CCI. I have it in .22, 9mm and .44 rem mag. I bought the aluminum case ones for the 9mm, because they were quite a bit cheaper.

So much for colt. lol.

MADISON, NC – Remington Arms Company, LLC (“Remington”), a member of the Freedom Group family of companies, is pleased to announce the award of an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract for the procurement of a maximum of 120,000 M4/M4A1 carbines by the US Army Contracting Command in Warren, Michigan, on Friday, April 20, 2012.

“It is a great honor to be awarded this contract from the United States Army,” said John Day, Vice President, Remington Defense Division, former Marine, and Iraq War Veteran. “Our workforce is extremely proud to be adding this combat-proven carbine to the Remington Defense family alongside our combat-proven sniper rifles, suppressors and shotguns. We will produce these carbines with the same diligence, attention to detail, and quality that snipers and shooters worldwide expect from Remington.”

The M4 and M4A1 carbines are the US Army’s primary individual combat weapons and will be produced by Remington to the US Army’s M4 technical data package. The Army has initially ordered 24,000 M4A1 carbines from Remington; deliveries will start in September, 2013.

“The innovation, quality and reliability of Remington rifles have made our company a leader in defense markets around the world,” said General Michael W. Hagee (USMC, Ret.), a Remington Arms board member and former Commandant of the Marine Corps.

“The chance to expand our strong military and defense presence producing M4s for the U.S. Army is a great opportunity,” added General George Joulwan (US Army, Ret.), also a Remington board member and former Supreme Allied Commander of Europe and head of NATO Forces. “We are proud and honored to serve those who serve all of us.”

Remington, in operation since 1816, is one of the oldest continuously operating manufacturers in the country. The M4 and M4A1 carbines will be produced at Remington’s core rifle manufacturing facility in Ilion, New York.

George Kollitides, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Freedom Group and Remington Arms, noted, “Over the past four years, we have made a substantial investment in Remington’s ability to compete in the government small arms space by modernizing our production facilities, focusing our research and development on end-user requirements, and ensuring consistent and repeatable quality in a high volume, high mix manufacturing environment. We see this award as proof that an American manufacturing company can still expand its product offerings and compete in this modern age to provide best in class weaponry to our troops defending freedom around the globe.”
Guess all of our troops are gonna die now?

i live in northeast pennsylvania. there may or may not be a clear cut answer for this, but if anyone has any info, i'd be happy to see...here's my question(s).

i understand that if someone enters your home/apartment, you have the right to protect yourself and whomever lives with you from intruders.
does this extend to outside property?
does this extend to vehicles that are parked outside of the home that are on the property?

for example, if i see someone breaking into one of my cars, or god forbid, try to get one of them on a flatbed, are there laws or precedents or cases that state you may or may not open fire?
