When was yours manufactured? I have two Mark IIs manufactured in 1999 and they aren't picky when it comes to ammo but the Mark III I just picked up is totally unreliable.

Two or three weekends ago I visited a gun show and found some lady selling KCI Glock magazines for $10 each. Wanted a few extra for my Glock 22 so I bought two and it wasn't until later in the week I discovered they don't fit my glock for ****. Loaded or unloaded you have to force them into the magazine well, then manually remove them with great deal of force. What happened to the good **** I've read about these pieces of ****??

Have taken some 400 grit sandpaper to one of them and removed a fair amount of plastic, yet they still won't fit properly. The KCI 33rd magazines fit my gun perfectly without any modifications.. they drop free empty too.

I am not sure when exactly my dads ruger was made. I know he had it in Germany when I was born and that was in 1987. The first time I actually got a chance to shoot it was 3 years ago and I swear my dad pulled ammo out of his range bag that had to be at least 15 years old. It shot that ammo perfectly. I have tried to convince him to let me borrow it, but he keeps saying no. Maybe one day he will say yes.

And **** all you guys. Now I feel the need for another pistol. I need to find someone who has a Walther P99 that I can test fire and see how it shoots.

I don't like it enough to buy one. It is not as fun to plink with, but if I had his I would actually work on accuracy.

I have a supertuck for my ppks and I love it. It is simply the best holster I have ever tried.

Guns are GD addiction. I just picked this up for $350 after FFL transfer. It is going to be a project rifle. I want a new lightweight wood or laminate stock, and I'm going to have my gunsmith work some magic. It is a 98 Mauser action with Remington name on it. Supposed to be a nice setup. Couldn't pass up .300 Win Mag for that price. Now I have two more scopes to buy

I suspect he was showing off an example of stippling. Those look like fiber.

I've never like the way stippling felt. Call me old fashioned...
