      The G20 I picked up.




      Size comp. with the P22.






      Picked up a couple different loads from double tap to try out.


      Hornady 180gr JHP/XTP on the left, Double Tap 165gr JHP, Double Tap 230gr WFNGC.


      I've put about 200 rounds threw her at the range a couple weeks ago. People complain about the grip being too wide, I think it's just fine. Recoil was not as bad as people put it out to be either although it does have a bit of pep to it.

        People hate on Glocks but I'd like to have one again as a hard use gun, although I always take care of everything I have.

        I had a chance to get a nice Glock with a Caspian slide and barrel but at the time I didn't really know anything about Caspian and wasn't sure about buying it. It was a cool looking gun and I bet it shot great. It was compensated and had night sites of some sort too if I remember correctly.

        I also like the new GenIV guns with the gills and rough texture. I don't get why everyone is so against it? I didn't know Glock was never allowed to changed their guns.

        Well, posterity, you will never know what it cost us to preserve your freedom. I only hope that you will make a good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it.

          If you've never handled a CZ 75, you wouldn't understand. I always thought they were basically just DA clones of the P35 Hi-Power. But then I shot one. The build quality is first-rate. Forged slides and frames, for example. The SA trigger pull is significantly smoother and lighter than a P35. Even the DA pull is smooth and light (feels like a Sig-Sauer). Accuracy was phenomenal. Reliability was 100%.

          I was impressed enough that I went out and bought a CZ 97-B, which is basically the same pistol scaled-up to chamber the .45 ACP.



          My 97-B is significantly more accurate than any off-the-shelf 1911 I have ever used. It big and heavy enough that recoil from 230 gr hard-ball feels light. It feeds 185 gr LSWC target ammo like butter, which most 1911's struggle to feed reliably. I love it. It's become my #1 for pin-shooting.

            So have you should the original 9mm version of the CZ75 before? If so how does the .45 compare?

            Everything you've said there is right on. If you even just go to a gun store and hold a CZ75 in your hand you'll realize how nice it feels in the paw. They are real beauties. The slide is recessed too which makes for a more accurate gun and is thought to reduce recoil because their is less mass to the slide. Also a sign that this gun is something special is all the clones that have made of it, let me find a list:

              I've shot a genuine CZ-75B as well as a Turkish-made copy called the "Sarsilmaz Kilinc." The 97B is significantly bigger and a bit nose-heavy. Both of which I like (I have big hands). The grip feels much longer from front-to-back, but not any wider (the grip panels are paper-thin). The 75B grip feels "rounder" in your hands. Personally, I like the long & narrow grip on the 97B because it keeps the pistol from rolling left or right while you shoot. But unless you have long fingers, you might find the grip too big.

              Like the 75B, all the controls on the 97B feel perfect...especially if you're used to the 1911. The slide stop, thumb safety, and mag release are all in the same place. Critically, the thumb safety works the RIGHT way: push down to fire. I never understood why every other DA pistol has a thumb safety that you have to push up to fire. Totally counter-intuitive and unnatural.

              Also, the 97B is designed to be carried cocked-n-locked. There's really no safe way to lower the hammer once the chamber is loaded. So, I consider it a SA handgun. The sights are big and wide. An adjustable rear is an option (I have it on mine). Mag capacity is 10 rounds. Mine had been dead reliable with everything, including 185 gr LSWC target loads. Some people complain about not feeding hollowpoints reliably. I've never tried hollowpoints in mine since I live in NJ (where hollowpoints are illegal ) and this is mainly a range gun.

              The ArmaLite AR-24 is just a rebadged Sarsilmaz Kilinc. I spent a lot of time with a Kilinc at the Turkish National Armory in Ankara last winter (my cousin's army buddy is the head of security). It was just as good as the CZ-75. If anything, the quality was slightly better in terms of fit and especially finish. But I understand the ones coming to America won't be finished as nicely (epoxy-coated rather than blued).

                Do any of you guys have any experience with TruGlo sights?
                I don’t know if I really like the way the look, but it seems like they work very well from what people say.

                      The people at the gun shop were telling me the EAA witness is a better gun than the CZ75. I just read an old article in American Rifleman magazine's Jan.2009 issue about the EAA witness and they said it has many improvements over the original CZ75.....although truthfully I skimmed the article last night sooo I can't really tell you what it really said

                          Here's my latest toy:





                          Just a cheap Barska red-dot scope for my old Buckmark .22LR pistol. I've never used any sort of optics before. This will take some getting used to. But the Browning has now been transformed into the ultimate "point-n-shoot" plinking gun.

                              Emery: I used to have a buck mark I wish I had never sold it :( they are great for practicing the 3 "P"s or just practice in general



                              I love brownigs, weatherby, rem, and FN. Never been real big on Winchester but just never had much trigger time on many.

                              Oh and old school savage lever guns with a pre 1,000,000 serial number I love the model 1899

                                223, .308 (7.62x51) .45acp, and 9mm shooters this is for you.

                                The DOD has issued orders and are no longer selling once fired surplus brass to the civilian market, it must be shredded and sold as scarp. This is the 1st run on ammo guys, its going to push prices through the roof and make everything that much harder to get.

                                I was really glad to see Tom Gresham, host of "Gun Talk Radio," an editor, writer, television host on "Self-Defense TV," and one of the foremost gun spokespersons, come out and tell everyone to stop worrying about legislation so absolutely over-the-top--it would never get out of committee.

                                Tom said save your energy for when we really need it--don't expend it trying to warn everyone in your e-mail list about legislation that would go nowhere.

                                Now, Tom just interviewed me, and Larry Haynie, owner of Georgia Arms (www.georgia-arms.com), on Gun Talk (www.guntalk.com)--and Tom agrees, now is the time to "...unleash the hounds..." by which he means start e-mailing and writing your senators and congressmen.

                                Now it has come clear...now we know what they intend to do.

                                It is an end-run around Congress. They don't need to try to ban guns--they don't need to fight a massive battle to attempt gun registration, or limit "assault" weapon sales.

                                Nope. All they have to do is limit the amount of ammunition available to the civilian market, and when bullets dry up, guns will be useless.
                                Read the whole article that was just the 1st couple of paragraphs.

                                I have already emailed the my representatives and the POTUS I urge you to do the same
