  1. New Member Check-In
    Hello My name is Tasos and I leave in Athens, Hellas. Before few days I get a STEYR M9-A1 with day of manufacture GWK (July '12) and 17 round magazines. I request you forgive me for the way of writing. I get this arm with special authorization self defense because in my country are...

    My M9A1 has a little hitch before it snaps into battery if you run the slide really slow. Sometimes it doesn't snap fully into battery when run this way and you have to push it home. Feels like it might be something in the trigger group/fire controls. Advice?

  5. The Soap Box
    While it's clear from my sig where my loyalties lie, I want to point out a currently running news story that should make us all pause. The shooting of the teenager in FL, by the Neighborhood Watch volunteer shows the powder keg waiting for us when we use our weapons. If you live on a piece of...
  6. Carry Issues
    Hello all! I just posted yesterday as a new member and I have a 1st gen Steyr M40. I'm getting my CPL next week in Michigan and I'm considering getting a 2nd pistol for compact carry only. Obviously Caracal has a strong presence here. Is there a particular light weight, short, narrow model...
  7. Tactics and Training
    as some of you have seen i have alot of guns, and i do alot of my own ammo tests to see which is the best for self defense. i am a FIRM believer that Corbon DPX and Magtech First Defense is the best on the market after testing numerous rounds...they are consistant, even through layers of denim...

    Just reporting in on my last range trip. I'm now up 355 rounds through my M9-A1. So far it has had only one FTE. This was while my 15 year old son was shooting RWS 124 grain. The 125 rounds I shot the other day were RWS and American Eagle. I hope to try some self defense rounds soon.
  9. 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...
  10. Anything Else
    Really good video from both a Law Professor and a 28 year Cop on what you should say to the police...be aware, it is 48 minutes long, but IMHO well worth the watch. Before you view it, think about the following scenario: You just shot someone in Self Defense, and the cops come. What are you...
