  1. Nope 😩 We are May Issue, but it’s like 4-5 people total have gotten approved. All either former LEO or politicians.
  2. 9 mm prices are good now, so... Do it!
  3. I think they sell Mechanix at the local Home Depot and Lowe’s. With things getting colder up there, I’m sure gloves will be helpful
  4. 4” barrel! Yeah, I think I have handguns with longer barrels. Compactness must be nice though.

    Ok. Just realize that diagnostics like that with dry fire isn’t a true measure since the recoil isn’t replicated.

    This is with dry fire, correct?

    Well CRAP!!!!!!

    I have a Ruger Redhawk with 7-1/2” barrel and it was quite mild with even factory .44 Mag.

    And that would be? Yanking trigger?
  9. Ahh. I haven’t modded any of my current Glocks. Thinking of getting a 19 and having a local guy stipple and do some other frame mods now that I have my CCW for multiple states. If I haven’t been shooting consistently, which is often these days, a day on the range will make my middle finger sore. Multi day class if definitely gloves or some tape.

    In what ways?

    No, but a few in a local forum mentioned trying. There’s another one out too, but I don’t remember the name.
  12. You don’t have the “Glock knuckle”? If I haven’t shot in a while, I can get a blister in my middle finger where it hits the trigger guard.
  13. I have gloves that i shoot with. Not sure they are specially shooting gloves. Lately have been using the basic Mechanix gloves. I have used Camelbak before. They had a thinner version that allowed more tactile feel. I also have a First Spear one that is supposed to be better with heat for my AK. I have gotten used to shooting with gloves. It really helps in the cold (when I had classes in AK) as well as rain.
  14. Was a variety of ammo.m for each. The tightest was Hornady American Gunner 55 gr BTHP. The biggest spread on the 50 yard target was actually GD 62 gr SP.

    Ahh. Possibilities. Some timber sounds good got a range. That said, a buddy has a huge property on the Big Island, but clearing this thin bamboo-ish weedlike plant is super thick and hard to clear. They need a backhoe, or it takes forever.

    Not for a house. Just for land. Separate budget for house. That was just for a range property ☺️

    Somewhere maybe 2 hours max from a “nicer” neighborhood. Not totally out in the boonies.
  19. First target was 50 yards and testing different ammo Second was 100 yards

    Red is the sparky. I’m just a knuckle dragging structural. 😜😝 I have thought about relocating. Not that serious, but I didn’t do some research. TX, AZ, and UT. There’s some decent job opportunities for me in the Fort Worth area. How many acres would say $200k buy me there? Enough for a decent rifle range? 🤔

    I’m jealous that you are even waiting for them.
  22. I felt that way the first handful of times I shot someone else’s. But I decided I wanted one to put time into it. The whole “it’s the wave of the future”, like rifle red dots. That and seeing how it has caught on with competition shooters. I just wanted to try for myself. I was told that many start and have a meh. Now that I’ve had decent time with it, I can totally see benefits. I’m not like “every gun needs one”, but I def see benefits. Check out Sage Dynamic’s videos. He’s pretty open about pros and cons. But he’s also more of a convert than I am.
