  1. Semi-Auto Handguns
    I'm about to pull the trigger (pun intended) on a P220 in the next week or so. This will be my primary HD gun. My original plan was to keep the chamber empty because I have small kids. But, with the long DA trigger pull do you think it is safe to keep it chambered with the hammer down? Would be...

    I have two young kids at home, so obviously this is a concern for us. I plan on buying a pump shotgun and want a way to keep it secure. I plan to keep the chamber empty but the tube loaded with shells. I don't think my kids , 1 1/2 & 3 1/2, can rack a pump shotgun, but I also don't want to find...

    Just wondering, how do you guys run your HD shotguns? Bead sight,red dot, ghost rigs, etc? Sling? What else? Post your setups! Edit: Title should say 'run' not 'un'

    I took a friend of mine to Mitchell Field this weekend to help him get started with his new shotgun (Mossberg 500 Special Purpose). He hadn't shot since he was a teenager but did well, though he did not enjoy firing the shotgun too much. He loved my .357 Rossi R92. Earlier that day he...
  6. Suffolk County Ranges
    My son and I finally got some range time in. I wanted to coach him more with the Ruger 10/22 (he is improving nicely and I think with a few more years he will shoot better than I!) ANYWAY, Last week something followed me home from Benson's. I was goign to do a picture posting of unboxing and...
  7. Pump Shotguns
    Been reading alot of posts lately on shotguns for home defense and it seems many favor the standard stock over the pistol grip for various reasons. What are your thoughts, pros or cons, on a combo version like this for a HD shotgun: or this
  8. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Looking to purchase a Kimber Super Carry Ultra HD. Does anyone own this specific model? Pro's/Con's? Reviews? Good/Bad? Thanks much
  9. Semi-Auto Handguns
    Again, still a rookie in shooting a pistol. Went to range early yesterday morning and picked up some HD ammo (Federal HST) to run through the HK. First time shooting hollow points and anything other than target ammo through it. Wanted to make sure it fed well, etc before buying to keep at home...

    What happens if you don't bath the barrel after each belt? Could it be carried under a long coat? Think it would be NY legal? German Made Ya gotta see this to believe it! Enjoy boys, the future of light, low-recoil automatic weapons has arrived! German Made Ya gotta see this to believe it...

    Hey guys, So I know this topic is basically beat to death all over the internet but I wanted to hear you opinions. We all live on LI which is very densely populated. We are in NY with its crap gun climate. In our specific environment what would you guys grab first in the event of a home...
  12. Product Review / New Products- Open Discussion
    Looking for recommendations for a solid HD round for my HK 45. Surprised there is no section just for AMMO discussions/reviews for both Pistols and Rifles (Maybe I missed it). Not sure if it helps, but below are some details on my house when considering penetration, etc. Sheetrock interior...

    How do you feel about slings on a long gun that is your HD gun. Is it pointless or is there some merit to it? I was talking to a buddy who put a single point on his shotgun and I like it but I don't know if it is worth it. Or if there are any cons when it comes to slings.

    Pretty good historical account of the battle from perspectives you may not have seen/heard before On the History2 HD channel - on cablevision it's channel 693 Thanks.
  15. Semi-Auto Shotguns
    The results of the "what weapon for HD" thread show that the overwhelming majority of those who answered use pump action shotguns to protect their families. Is this due to the lower cost vs semi shotguns, or because they're that much more reliable? I don't know much about shotguns and am in...

    Always love to see what everyone's got here. We have such a rich mixture of tech/av savvy people. Finally got my HT setup the way I want it and want to see yours and discuss setups. (Post pics if you have them)
  19. 4X4 -Enjoy the offroad! / CB Radio Area
    Not sure the is the best place to put this, or if it would have been better to post in the camper/rv section, feel free to move it if you wish. I drive a F350 dually. When I purchased the truck a few years ago, it had passenger plates on it. When I went to switch the registration to me, the...

    My cousins husband, while being quite the affable fellow, is very ill prepared in my judgement. He has a Glock 9mm (G19 I think) but when I asked him how his ammo supply is, he simply stated: I have almost 2 boxes. Well, I like to be a bit more prepared than that. I wanted to pick up some ammo...
