I like the mini-14, but I really wasn't satisfied with the furniture- plastic or wooden- that I saw out there for it. Too bad too because it's in my price range. I think I'm going for the shotgun though. I can go skeet shooting with my brother and pop and it's less restricted here in MD.
Hey PCS!!! Nice set of firearms you have going!!! I dont know anything about the pistol but I think it looks pretty damn good!!! On the pistol---whats the deal with the trigger guard??? Does it detach??? If so is there another tigger guard with a built on tac. light/lazer in the market??? How many rounds does it hold??? Im thinking 7+1!!! ---RED---
The trigger guard laser is from Crimson Trace and is custom designed for it. It has a 1" rail under the chin that will hold most pistol add-ons, but I wanted the button below the trigger, on the grip.
I didn't know it at the time of purchase, but the Ruger SR9c won pistol of the year in 2010 and was featured on the cover of last month's NRA magazine. The short mag holds 10 and the full-size holds 17. She's a completely different beast when shooting with the different mags.
It also depends how anal you are on it, yeah it needs to be reliable but if you have good ammo it doesnt need as much maintenance. I've been shooting Independence through mine and it doesnt leave much residue. I go at least 500 rounds between cleaning and haven't had an issue
I'm with you NSA, not sure how much to scrub my pistol. I have been using Qtips to wipe down all the pieces in the trigger/mag area and being careful not to leave any cotton hairs behind. Oiling it is another question mark for me. I put just enough to tell it's oiled if touched, but not enough that you really see it. I've cleaned it 3 times and it's fired every time, so I must be doing something right, hopefully.
This guy makes me sad to be a gun owner. Nutcases like this ruin it for everyone else. I loved his list of things he suggested to management for his "team". I'm forwarding this to a couple of buddies that are cops, they'll get a kick out of this.
Yeah, if the words "I", "am" and "like a god" come out of your brain in the same sentence, you have no business playing with firearms or being responsible for public safety.
I just received a text from one of my cop buddies- he said mall cops are the worst. They apparently a lot of them swear up and down that they "could have" been a real Police Officer, but didn't feel like working for the "man" or some other bullshit thing. Pinnacle of the wanna-be.
And then there are the ones that are off-duty PD or retired guys that are just trying to make some extra money. I feel bad for those guys that have to work with the other assholes.
Pretty much. One of my favorite things to follow is the number of guys that get arrested each month for faking military or police credentials to give talks or run classes. It's amazing how long these guys can go before someone actually checks their background and military records and they get caught.
Don't worry. It's a federal offense to fake military or federal public safety creds. Long jail time too, which is reassuring. I was just surprised at the lack of basic background checks people were willing to do before they invite someone to speak or give classes. Who just takes anyone at face value anymore?
The bottom floor of my range has different coarses setup for the police and competitive shooters to train on. Can't wait until I feel qualified to take some classes and join a league. Shooting at a static target takes enough practice, pop-up targets and firing on the move should be a great challenge.
Well I'm stoked because I'm heading home to visit the family in 3 weeks and grand pappy wants me to go through the cache to see what I want. Myself and my cousin are the only ones that get to pick from it. Plus I get to unload a few boxes through ma's 9MM. I'm sure I'll have to clean the damn thing. Who knows when she has.
If you go through the thread there are a few replies that werent edited out calling the guy out. the first time I read it I almost died laughing. Around here no mall security can even carry batons and theyre lucky if the get pepper spray
The pistol is an FN FNP in .40 and the shotgun is a Mossberg 500A. It came with the 18" and 28" barrels. Unless I'm going hunting the 18" and the Blackhawk pistol grip stock stay on. The light on the front is great 110 lumens with laser and strobe capabilities. Dont pay attention to the holoscope thing, its a cheap($10) airsoft replica just to see if I like it. A better one is on the list of things to purchase. I have a laser/light combo for the FN also.
