    Use only non-linting materials to clean the striker or firing pin channel in actually any weapon. Lint can cause light strikes by itself, and with dirt, it can really muck things up. Coffee filters or Chem-X filters are non-woven materials which will clean well and not leave fibers behind. Cut...

    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...

  7. Anything Else
    Just wondering what way people store their firearms, if they dry fire them before putting into their gun safe(if they don't have exposed hammer), use snap caps or leave them cocked? For most firearms here in the UK this isn't such an issue as rifles are supposed to have bolt removed and stored...

    First off, thanks to ThorInc for inspiring me to finally... bite the bullet? Drop the hammer? Or some other appropriate saying meaning "to stop being a wuss and just buy a damn Steyr." :) I'd been following the M9 for many moons and decided that when I finally got my firearms license, it was...

    a shotgun for home defense and for the wifey when I'm away. I'm leaning towards a Saiga 12 ga. that I would like to get a pistol grip, stock and possibly a 20 round drum for it. :) The local shop has a Izhmash with a 19" barrel for $670. If I pay cash I can probably get them down a little...

    Forgive me if this has been posted before. From Vol 66, Issue 14, pg. 32 of Shotgun News, under the article "Pistols of the 2012 IWA Show": "Steyr is Back. The Steyr Model M has been revamped and the result is a slightly larger pistol. It is called the Steyr Model L-A1 Full Size Service...

  12. Competition Shooting
    Have been hitting 3G matches when I can, and my M9A1 has been along for the ride. I'm using 17 rd Steyr mags for this. Pistol is de-emphasized in these matches; while my IPSC skills help me make up time against the average 3-gunners, it's my CQB rifle and my shotgun reloading skills that need...

    Hello all! I recently aquired a Steyr side by side shotgun, perhaps made in the 1920's. How do I find out more about this gun? I'd like to know when it was made, and what it might be worth. Appreciate any advice. Thanks.

    I know the majority of you guys aren't lawyers so I know all I'm getting is your opinion. I've researched it briefly and can't find an answer. I know converting a pistol to a rifle or SBR is a legal PITA but what's the scoop on taking a woden-stocked milsurp rifle, cutting the barrel down to an...
  15. Ammunition and Reloading
    an antiquated old coot named Elmer Keith derided the term "maximum load" . he thought, rightly so i believe, they should have been termed "dangerous load". the most accurate loads are usually not the most powerful loads but usually moderate loads. of course i am speaking in broad very open...

    This looks very interesting and "i want one" !!!! Ive never considered Kel Tec a top knotch outfit but the lastest 22mag pistol, the 308 rilfe, and this new shotgun have made me a think they may be as innovative as Magpul...
  18. Anything Else
    Just bought one and from what i've been able to find out they were made in the 1920s. Beautiful guns with selective auto ejectors (on or off) and cocked chamber idicators. Anyone have any info on production/ serial numbers. i've only found reference to one other in an auction.

    Converting a room over to be an armoury room in my residence. So far, so good. Still have paint work and flooring work left. Anyways, a deal came up last week and I had the gentleman that designed the cases for Oakley sunglasses build me "modern gun cabinets". Glass, Aluminum, Steel and Black...
