  1. Other Rifles
    Hello: New member here, I have a prohunter in .260rem that a pervious owner tried to make into a 'brush gun'. It looks like they cut the barrel with a hacksaw, recrowned it with a dremel, and, just for giggles, bored out the rifling with a drill bit. The barrel is ~17.5" from the locked bolt...
  2. Other Rifles
    I only just really became aware of the insane run on magpul pmags (and magazines in general), but every single place I've looked online is sold out. Curious, I turned to gunbroker to see what popped up. It's unbelievable. Five pmags for 445.00 (and the bidding wasn't over!!!)...
  3. Ammunition and Reloading
    on April 7 i ordered from Midway, Powder Valley, and Wideners. My midway and powder valley orders where delivered by April 11. i just got off the phone with wideners and they said the haz-mat orders are 3 weeks behind. now mind you that i only ordered in-stock items and everything i ordered from...
  4. Caracal C and F Series
    Hello, all. I fear for the lives of all my other pistols since I purchased my Caracal C. Even my tricked out Glock 34 is gathering dust! I've never shot so well with any gun as I have with the Caracal. But at night, I'd like a light to mount on it. Has anyone any experience with weapon lights...
  5. The Pub
    Greetings, I joined up here a while back when doing some research on the Caracal. Just wrote this review and thought you folks here might find it interesting as well. I'll be very interested in hearing what Mr. Bubits has to say about the book. I've been fortunate enough to receive an advance...
  6. Anything Else
    I would like member's opinions of the following two news articles, one dated 08-22-2011 and one dated 08-24-2011: The Seattle Times 08-22-2011 "A judge Monday ruled there was probable cause to hold a suspect for investigation of first-degree assault in the stabbing of a 30-year-old Seattle...
  7. M, C, L and S Series
    I wrote to Wolff about making aftermarket springs for Steyrs. This was the response I got: Thank you for writing and for your interest in our product line. While we do not have plans on making replacement springs for the the Steyr M40 at this time, that can change as demand increases. About...

  9. Carry Issues
    many of us here are gun people. like 'em, own' em, shoot 'em. in a lot of circumstances we all see the same issue in the same way. the previous post brought an interesting question to my mind. one that i think gets bounced around gun lobbyists offices and legislatures desks pretty...
  10. Anything Else
    I can't believe this passed: http://www.newsday.com/news/politics/wi ... 4422.story It still boggles my mind that Americans can let one of thier rights be taken away so easily. Everything this country stands for is the complete opposite of what has happened in San Fran in this case. If they are...
  11. The Pub
    I fear for the BG that breaks into our house at night when the wife is armed! First time out last Friday. Here are her results from her frist ever target @ 15'. She had never fired any type of hangun in her life up to this point. No really fast but very accurate (we will be working on speed...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Hi folks, I was happy to keep reporting the progress that the S9/M9 and I were making in IDPA matches that I started shooting in Feb of this year. I loved the S9/M9 so much because of the design advantages over the other polymer guns, and feel they played a big part in me going from...
  13. M, C, L and S Series
    Steyr Mannlicher phoned me from Austria today, on Eastern Standard Time, as per my location. I offered to buy up a bunch of spare parts for Steyr pistols and then offer them through the forum, until things get sorted out. This was a not-for-profit gesture and a measure to help USA Steyr owners...
  14. Holsters
    I need some help! I am a newbie looking for a good holster for my new S9. I inquired with the folks at Mitch Rosen who said they have the block for the "M" series, but not the "S". They also said if the "M" & "S" are the same, other than barrel length, they can make the holster. Does anyone...
  15. M, C, L and S Series
    Went to my local range last weekend and ran about 200 rounds through both pistols. Before going I completely disassembled my S9 and shot some Gunscrubber in every orriface it displayed. I almost lost part #20, the trigger safety retention spring, while reassembling but I found it inside of an...

    Superthumb makes a model that works fine. I'll try to look and see what the model number is.
  17. Carry Issues
    Hi all, I started this thread because I made a post in a different section referring to a debate I had about this subject on THR (The High Road) forums. Below is the post with a link to the THR thread and associated and disclaimer. :lol: Feel free to comment , even if you disagree with me ...

    I have had my M9 for a couple of months now. It is a fantastic gun. I have carried it daily for about a month now in my HBE holster :) Looking to pick up an M40 sometime this summer :D
