My Kahr PM9 is the only firearm I regret getting rid of.

Ignore pusha, yes, if it's a good price go for it, BUT if at all possible verify that it runs reliably.

I love Kahrs but they do have QC issues and there are lemons out there. Make sure he's not selling it cheap because he's tired of sending it back to Kahr.

12th out of 25. First event ever... was given the rules regarding cover/movement/reloading about 5 minutes before I shot (was a late cancel spot I filled).

Pleasantly surprised.

Nice. I'd love to make time to get involved in shooting something other than static paper targets (and I'm too urbane to travel to the backwoods with Pusha).

What firearm did you use?

Okay, now I'm happy.




The dealer I bought that from had some kid working for them that knew dick ---- about guns. Some guy asked if a rifle stamped "5.56" could fire .223 and the kid said that it can, but 5.56 is a junk round because it uses dirty powder and isn't very accurate otherwise was identical to .223. After about five minutes I couldn't take it anymore and corrected him on the actual differences between 5.56 and .223, and that just because a LOWER RECEIVER is stamped 5.56 does NOT mean the upper receiver is spec'd for a 5.56 cartridge. He didn't appreciate me doing so..

Walking around those gun shows it's incredible how many "noguns" toolbags are there. 10 years ago it wasn't like this.. Before the magpul/zombie fagggotry there wasn't a bunch of dumbass kids running around like they're prepping for mother ------- combat. Bunch of idiots spending $700 on some pattern cookiecutter AR so they can run to the next table and spend $1800 on a ------- RED DOT SIGHT!

Some guy was telling his son that an ak with a loose muzzle brake was a piece of ----, and that some of them just aren't made to the same standards as others. Seriously?? No, dumbfuck. The muzzle brake is "loose" on an AK so you can press the detent and unscrew the ------- thing to install another muzzle device with your hands, instead of needing an armourer!

Buddy and I went shooting yesterday and he's got one of the Plumb Crazy composite lowers which I'm a fairly big fan of. To date I had never personally seen a failure of any kind with them until he squeezed the trigger on his first magazine. One trigger pull dumped the entire 30 round magazine, the look of excitement and horror on his face had me laughing my *** off. Ever had a runaway?



Trigger broke. That'd be why I swapped out the nasty feeling trigger for a DPMS group before I ever built a rifle out of my composite lowers.

hypothetical:

firearms get outlawed nationwide.

Do you bend over and turn your guns in?

Do you strap up and wait for the alphabet boys to show up in your yard, then ride the whole clip?

Do you hide all of your stuff?

keep politics out of this, just speak as a gun owner.

Gearhead, you are NOT allowed to share your opinion.
