    Thought I would share a few places that look to have mags in stock since the political insanity is making it difficult to find them. www.cdnninvestments.com/steyr2.html grabagun.com/mag-steyr-m9-a1-9mm-17rd.html...
  3. The Soap Box
    Why Did it Have to be ... Guns? by L. Neil Smith [email protected] Over the past 30 years, I've been paid to write almost two million words, every one of which, sooner or later, came back to the issue of guns and gun-ownership. Naturally, I've thought about the issue a lot, and it...

    Background: My first non-issue firearm was a Steyr M9-A1 circa Christmas, 2007. I loved the handgun, though I did have the old "short" magazine spring issue, and Jeff was kind enough to send me a replacement extractor upgrade. Later, when SAI dropped the M9 line from the market, I ditched the...

    L. Neil Smith's The Libertarian Enterprise A number of writers have recently noted the political hypocrisy of banning citizen guns, while keeping politicians (or their minions) armed: 1) tle705-20130113-10.html 2)...
  6. The Pub
    Here's a beautiful example of the best of American engineering and manufacturing. This is a Monarch 10EE lathe manufactured in 1985. It has been refurbished and re-motored, but it shows all of the characteristics of the quality for which our products were once justly famous. Somehow I don't...
  7. Caracal C and F Series
    New to the forum and I'm impressed. Lots of great Caracal information here; I'm just hoping to add another point of view. I've had these guns for about 3 weeks and I only wish I had them longer. Accuracy-great. Reliability-great. Ease of maintenance--great. Ergos---great for me. I really...

    I would vote for a Bachmann/Paul ticket - I don't care who's President or who's Vice President. Otherwise, I'll vote Libertarian again. I can personally vouch for the integrity of Ron Paul, I've known him since 1980 when I ran for Congress as a Libertarian. He's the real deal, thinks things...
  9. Carry Issues
    this thread grew out of a thread i saw on the soapbox, http://www.steyrclub.com/vb/threads/7703-Open-carry-incident-Member-s-opinions-please so my apologies if this is old news. in the article on Mr Kirbys plea deal they referenced Mr Watsons conviction for unlawful carry in an open carry...
  10. Carry Issues
    I am new to handguns, but rather than start easy with a .22 I decided to jump right in with a 9mm as a first pistol. I have signed up for a CCW class - coming up Oct 1 and 2 - and need at least a .380 to qualify, but decided 9mm would give me the best combination of stopping power and...
  11. M, C, L and S Series
    Because I picked up my M9 yesterday from my FFL. Woohoo! Now I just need time to take it to the range :( I know Steyr Club is a pretty new forum (in this form, anyway), but I'm already so impressed by the quality of its patrons - thanks, everybody, for the great information, the friendly...
  12. M, C, L and S Series
    Convert from Glocktalk where I was Newbie MN. I'm probably still technically a newbie (when exactly does that no longer apply anyway :wink: ) and certainly am to Steyrs with only 4-5 weeks with the thing, but hey a name change felt right. So a big hello to you all :D Steyr-wise I have only...
