Re: The New Firearm Thread

My friend was telling me about some ammo that they quit making long ago and a box of 20 sells for like $100.

It looks like Gunbroker is the way to go for selling obsolete ammo. Turns out UPS is ok with shipping ammo, just need to add a special symbol to the box, and have some way of verifying recipient is over 18.

Winchester Black Talon

Dumbass California media claimed that the ammo cause extreme death and horrific wounds and was super killer murderous ammo

It was just a good bonded JHP that's all. The ammo was also coated black...

A few years later Winchester came out with Ranger XST ammo. (eXact Same Thing) just wasn't colored black

Like we've discussed in this thread before, JHP was developed to prevent pass through, or prevent unintended targets from getting hit from over penetration... Not "to kill better"

Re: The New Firearm Thread

Have you looked at the Beretta pistol caliber carbines?
Or even the Keltec Sub 2000?


WAY WAY better budget options

Re: The New Firearm Thread

not til now. it looks like the beretta is more than i am looking to spend right now. the sub 2000 on the other hand is a little easier on the wallet. no provisions to mount a scope is kind of a turn off where scope mounting is possible with the hi-point. but then the capability to use a 32 rd glock mag with the kel-tec is much more appealing than the 10rds with the
hi-point. right now i can get the hi-point 995ts 4x32 minus the scope for just under $200. youve definitely got me thinking about the kel-tec.

Re: The New Firearm Thread

You get what you pay for


And there is definitely many aftermarket ways to mound optics to either...

But the Beretta can be had under $500 used....

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I have a 20+year old hipoint carbine and it shoots great. I am not a hipoint fan and would never trust one enough to carry but for a toy it has been nice.

A buddy of mine let me shoot his HP 9mm carbine. As soon as I took hold of it, I couldn't get past how awkward feeling it was.

Re: The New Firearm Thread

^ GREAT CHOICE!!

I love the 5906 series, have a 5946 myself! Put thousands of rounds through it with no trouble. Definitely feels like a real gun, nice weight and NO felt recoil! They've been discontinued a good number of years now, the last generation of the 100% steel semi-autos!

The only surprise you'll get from that gun is a flying guide rod when you tear it down. Sometimes it will get dislodged off it's perch on the barrel when removing the slide and become it's own projectile!

Re: The New Firearm Thread

Its not my first 3rd gen Smith. They are without a doubt one of the most reliable semi automatic hand guns ever produced. More than likely I will be sendi g this one to the Smith & Wesso. Performance center for a trigger job... but other than that I plan on just putting thousands of rounds through it...

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I got a S&W 59 series last year. I think it was like 120 after buying 4 10 round mags for it. I can't get it to shoot consistently. I thought it might be the hammer spring so I bought a new one, but that didn't work. I don't think the pin is bad, but I may just try that next. I guess it could be the ammo. I did just buy the cheapest stuff at Big 5 so I could play a little. It was like 19 bucks a box of 50.

Re: The New Firearm Thread

Mine is all black a late 1970's model I think. I would like to get wood grips for it after I find out why it's not firing. It will fire and then you have to rack it and it will fire again. I have fired 3 or 4 rounds in a row, but most of the time you have to rack it to fire. It does recoil and rack another round each time, it just only fires when you manually rack a round.

Picked up a CZ-82 last week, officially starting my CZ collection.
Really uniquely designed pistol with great ergonomics. Super accurate too.

Re: The New Firearm Thread

I just picked up a CZ-52 a couple of weeks ago. Dumbest handgun I think I have ever handled. Still like it for the historical value though. And it goes well with my Romanian TTC. Also picked up another Nagant Revolver the same day.

Yeah, it does look cool... Like a cross between the Walther/Smith P99, a Springfield XD Mod, and a Glock

It will be their first striker fired service pistol:

Re: The New Firearm Thread

it does look really nice, I love the serration on the slide. Looks beefy/gripy. I'll have to handle one first though....

I am "one of those Glock guys" though.... So Im a hard sell on actually purchasing one.

The grip angle and frame all look very Glock-esque

Re: The New Firearm Thread

Bought a new gun today. Was not planning on buying one, but they had 6 of these marked down almost 25% off. It was $300, $330 out the door, and another $20 for the grips. Couldn't really beat that price for a new gun I don't have to care about if it gets scratched up or not.

The New Firearm Thread

Thanks. Counting what I have for the grips I saved $186. I shot 21 rounds through it and noticed that the trigger stuck in the back position every 2-3 shots. I fully disassembled it, sprayed it down with wd-40, played with the trigger to work wd-40 into place, then I let it sit for a couple hours. I put it back together and it seems to work flawlessly now.

Its at the very end of Gateway Drive in Gallatin (I said Hendersonville but apparently its Gallatin, my plans say Hendersonville). I do much more work in Clarksville and metro Nashville than I do in that area. I did the first phase of the sewer extension in your town but didn't win the second phase...bastards.
