  1. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    Your thoughts on the Savage Scout and other similar scout rifles for hunting?  I need an all around hunting rifle for this upcoming season, most  shots would be taken sub 100 yards.  
  2. Chit-Chat
    We are facing a very important election . People are buzzing. There is a policy here that you cannot post political threads in Chit Chat. If I understand correctly, they can only be posted in the donated section. So if you want to read them, and reply, I assume you must be someone who has given...

  5. Revolvers [Handguns]
    Looking into picking up a Tarus revolver in 357. I already own a Smith, looking for something reasonable . Some reviews say that Tarus are known for problems.
  6. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    Anyone have any experience comparing the Weatherby Vanguard S2 to the Remmington 700 SPS tactical, both in 308? From what I can find online the main differences are: More after market accessories for the 700. The 700 is American made. The Weatherby is about $150 cheaper. Thanks.
  7. Semi-Auto [Rifles]
    So I'm starting to research my next rifle purchase. Definitely want semi-auto, but not really interested in the tactical style AR or AK platforms. I prefer the traditional look of wood. After seeing Jimsky's thread on the Camp 9, I've been leaning in that direction. As I'm still a bit new, can...

    My neighbor planted bamboo a year or two ago. I looked quick a while ago and it looked like it was contained to pails or drums. I went out this weekend and saw a 3 or 4 shoots coming through my lawn. They traveled about 6 feet from the original plant under my fence. When i bought this house 10...
  9. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    I saw this at the local gun show and have been looking at writeups - mostly very postive. Supposedly they are working on a douible action to follow up on the SA (this one is used by Turkish police). Does any have one or have thoughts? The tan is the TP9 I believe and the black is the TP9SA.
  10. Pump [Shotguns]
    What are some thoughts on the idea of a shotgun mounted in the trunk and locked with one of those quick access locks (like a PD cruiser would have)? It could be mounted out of sight under the rear deck. Seems like a good discussion topic.
  11. Out Of State Licensing
    My gf is working on her pistol permit in Connecticut. As part of the requirements, you have to take a course where you actually shoot a pistol (ie: NRA Basic Pistol Course). I like the idea as I feel getting a pistol permit without ever having used one is akin to getting a driver's license...
  12. Semi-Auto [Handguns]
    Ok I want something different and the M&P have been get good reviews and now they have a optic, competition ready gun for under a grand. Its the M&P 9mm Pro CORE Ported 9mm. Anyone have any thoughts.
  13. AR - [Rifles]
    I ordered a BCM upper, not because I wanted a BCM upper, but because I wanted the keymod rail for my MEGA build, a new barrel for a Spikes build, and an extra BCG because I like BCGs. I figured why not take it all together and get a receiver included right? Im starting to think that I don't...

  15. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    Any strong opinions one way or another? (223 or 308 versions) My research doesn't show any significant issues. Mainly some people compain the action on the 308 version can be a little stiff out of the box. Also the weaver plate is sometime lose from the factory. The main comment is - it's not...
  16. Bolt Action [Rifles]
    Cabelas is running a special on the Remmington 700 ADL with a Busnel scope. The main difference between the ADL and SPS that I see is the finish on the stock and the receiver doesn't have the trap for adding a removable magazine so you're "stuck" with a 4 round internal magazine. But for the...
  17. Home Security / Safes
