Went out and looked at guns today. The G26 isn't going to work out for me in a pocket. Dammit.

If you have the coin, check out the walther pps.

Those are good from what I've heard.

A cheaper option... Kel Tec PF9, though they need a little work out of the box to be 100%.

I picked up an XD9 sub compact and a mossberg 12 today. $980 out the door with ammo too.

If you're looking to pocket carry why not get a...pocket gun...?  LCP, S&W Bodyguard, TCP, Kel-tek P3AT, etc

Went ahead and ordered one of these earlier today.

I'll post a pic of it on the AR when it comes in.


Nice.  You will love it.

I've looked at all those. I will not buy or trust Keltec or Taurus, and the bodyguard .380 would be at the top of my list if it didn't have a safety and an exposed hammer. As for the LCP, it's sold out everywhere locally.

The shop I worked at had at least 25 LCP in stock at a time, with and without crimson trace/Laser lyte from factory.

I agree its the best, the bodyguard is more solid and has real sights, but they're still too small to use and its a point and shoot belly gun.  I hate the laser activation on the BG380.

why do rounds do this? i notiiced a had a few in my box of tulane (sp?) russian ammo from wal mart...



what would you recommend as far as a scope (what do you use for 100 yards?), or bigger mags?
also, what would a bipod run me, and are they easily detachable?

thanks

I must be lucky, but I only shoot shitty ammo and NEVER have FTF/FTE in my AR, Glock, XD, 1911...

Harris bipods are by far the nicest but you will pay for it.  I have one and love it.  I would get the 6 inch closed that goes to 9 inch fully extended, you wont need any bigger and any smaller wont let you shoot from a bench with a 30rd mag in because the mag will hit.

For a scope, 3-9x40 is the all around BEST mag choice, notice how I said all around.  If you're trying to shoot 100 yards and see the holes, youll probably have to go bigger, but you should have a nice spotting scope for that on a NICE tripod next to you.

Redfield has GREAT glass, its a less expensive Leupold.  If you can, VX3 Leupold 3-9x40 is great as well.  Don't get a 50 objective, its too big and a bitch to mount low on most firearms.  

I personally think that Leupold is the best for the money, but I have shot the Nikon Pro staff, buckmark and Mark AR series and they're great as well.  

I also bought a $50 scope from cabelas, comes with a lifetime warranty, and shot the shit out of it (it held zero and was clear) then when it broke a few months later I returned it for a new one.  I've done that twice and still only spent $50.  

It comes down to being relative to what you personally can afford and what you put into the rifle.  

I'm confident that at 50-100 yards, with my rifle, I could shoot just as well with a Truglo 3-9x40 as I could with a Nightforce 9-18x50.

I forgot about rings, buy nice rings no matter what, I believe they're equally as important if not more important as the scope, if it doesn't hold well its probably the rings failure, not the glass.


Rant over.

Cool your tits. This is no rare antique Mosin. It's just a run of the mill $80 nothing special about it Mosin. That's the one and only aftermarket part I'm putting on it! Just two screws in the back that already existed. I promise I won't sporterize it or paint it pink :bustin:

I decided on a 442 or 642 (whatever I can find first). I called 3 different local shops looking for one without an internal lock. The first said they can't get one anytime soon, the second asked if it just came out, and the third said they didn't exsist without the lock.
