    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.

    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...

  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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...
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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...

    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.
  14. 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...

  16. 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...
  17. 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...
