    I say unbiased because I have shot/owned almost every S&W semi auto during the last 10 years, and I feel I can give ya'all a real review. What they did right with this update, and what they got wrong. The new Shield is presented as previous M&P's, So-So cardboard box, manual, nice wrap, and in...
  2. Taurus 1911's
    Saw another poster on another forum talking about their odd-caliber ria so i figured I'd take my .22 tcm 2011 for a walk. I had 5 new magazines and a set of hogue wraparounds to test out along with my now clean ejector that was previously too dirty to function. Filled each mag to 16 rounds twice...

    I watch gunbroker often for old metal guns, but could never find an old P226 for close to precovid pricing..I know I am nuts!!! I decided to try out a web store I visit for old surplus metal guns and Eureka!! Iammo.com had 226's for a very good price, along with a bunch of gen 2 and 3 S&W...
  4. Other Handguns
    Having little self control when it comes to a challenge, I began scouring the web stores and gunbroker for a pre-covid priced pistol. My Daughter and her family are coming up for spring break, I am going to make good on my promise of last year to give her a firearm for her Birthday in 2020. One...

    Okay, here's the deal. This pistol started its life as the Crvena Zastava model 99 (CZ-99) made in Yugoslavia. It was an evolved Sig. During the Clinton administration, the Zastava factory was destroyed. As a result, the design was taken to South Africa, where Tressitsu produced it. Combining...
  6. Other Long Arms
    Installed my optic ( Bresser Turkey True View Reflex ) and an AFG. I know this isn't a shotgun, but that optic was priced right and made to handle 12 ga impulses so I figure it can handle 9mm. It took me 7 rounds to zero the optic at 50 yards. I can still use the sights with the optic off, or...

    Ready for another story along with an unusual PCC review, well sit back, grab your favorite beverage and lets get to it. The Extar EP9 has been on my radar for a few years. My continued search for light weight, compact long arms has yielded my M1 carbine - a battle rifle at around 5lbs. The...
  8. Other Handguns
    Well as with so many of my reviews this starts with a story. I bought a used M&P 1.0 compact early in 2020, because the 2.0 version while announced in 2019 was made of unobtainium. So I went all in on the used 1.0 and installed some new parts/polished/added Talon grips and began to test for...

    I am not necessarily desperate, but indications are that I will be if there’s no improvement in product availability, so as **** Jagger sang, You can’t always get what you want! I ordered 1000 bullets, 38 Super, 121gr JHP .356” diameter. I’m guessing if I can load Berry’s plated, which are .356”...
  10. Millennium (Pro) Pistols
    The sun was out, the temps were moderate, no wind. It must be time to let two of my favorite budget pistols battle it out. Today's match up is a Brazilian up and comer versus another German surprise contender. The Taurus G3 and the Walther Creed. Both of these pistol's street price is similar...
  11. Millennium (Pro) Pistols
    I took my new Taurus G3 and my winter carry, Walther PPQ out for some range work this afternoon. After days of rain, washed out roads, and a freeze this morning. The early afternoon was beautiful, so it was time to work out the new G3. Also for my bench review follow this link...

    The reviews just keep on coming, for my third one this week I chose to review a used redbox Sig P320 in the carry size frame. I found this pistol at my favorite LGS listed for $399. Its purchase was covered by some of my trade ins and I got $20 off the asking price, so $379 OTD. This is what...

    I don't know how I missed hearing about the Stoeger STR-9 when information regarding it was released at Shot Show 2019. While not there (unfortunately) I typically watch as many videos as possible by various people on YouTube that do get to attend. Last night while researching various...

  15. Taurus 1911's
    I am trying to be an equal opportunity gun buyer as proven by my last several purchases. Turkish Tristar 20 GA semi, Back to USA for two fine Smith revolvers and a Mossberg 22, Then the Philippines For a TCM/9mm, Back to USA for a Sig, Then to the wacky rev Moon and his Kahr TP45, on to Germany...
  16. PT92, TX 22 & Other Taurus Pistols
    About a year ago i bought a 809 9mm. I love this gun. It shoots perfect, accurate, and it was a great price. Now all of a sudden its discontinued?!?!?! I was planning on picking up some more magazines for it but it looks like they have all been snatched up. Nobody has any. Does anyone know...
  17. Taurus Revolvers
    I just ran across this a few minutes ago and am hoping one of the attendees of Shot Show 2018 will post video of it in the next few days. So many great firearms have been released recently by many companies but this is one of the few that has my attention. Taurus 692 Multi-Caliber Revolver...

    I've got the same screen name on some other gun-related forums, so if you have already read or responded to a similar question, please don't feel a need to respond again. Here's my situation. I am nearing retirement. My income will go down in retirement. So that shooting is not a drag on my...

    What are your thoughts on the Remington RP9? I've not shot or even so much as held one yet but have watched several of the reviews on youtube on this pistol. From accounts given there seem to have been reliability issues with some of the earliest releases but hoping Remington has since addressed...
