How's that saying go?

"Play stupid games, win stupid prizes?"

That guy on the ground got the equivalent of the giant stuffed teddy bear.

I liked the body language of the two employees...

Guy 1: aw shit, we're getting robbed. Hey Jim, we're getting robbed.
Guy 2: The fuck we are...

The new S&W M&P9 M2.0 is out. 17-round mag, 2 mags, 4 back straps. With or without thumb safety. Looks like they listened to the complaints on the heavy trigger force! (They've also released the M2.0 in other calibers).

Not bad for $458 shipped...

Very limited reviews, but P10C overall has been getting a lot of praise over PPQ and G19. We'll see.

Still waiting on a shipping confirmation on my Monarch.
Worth the wait for the discount I got, just excited to get it to the range.

Also got a spotting scope/monocular from my parents for my birthday, came with a little tripod. Should come in handy when I go to sight it in.
Looks very similar to this one:

Just got confirmation that my Monarch 5 has been ordered. No work on shipping yet, but things are moving forward.
Looking forward to getting my Tikka to the range.

My abroham is a LEO in Las Vegas.
He got his hands on a CZ P10c.. he's a big glock guy.
Anyways, he loved shooting it, gave it a lot of praise.



I'm still not sure I'd put money into it over a P07 or P09.
But I'm getting anxious to compare it against a G19.

I went over to my buddies house at lunch and helped him with a project since he's pretty incompetent when it comes to mechanical things. He wanted to swap out the stock and safety on his Remington 870 with a Magpul stock and a Wilson Combat big button safety.

I looked up the manual and watched some YouTube videos last night to get familiar with it and damn, that's a fun little assembly. Nicely designed boomstick. The whole thing pretty much comes apart with a screwdriver and a punch. Piece of cake to swap out the stock and safety. The Magpul kit feels much better to me, just shouldering it for a few seconds.

Pretty (tacti)cool!

srs? Didn't know they were going under, when is that going down?

If you just want a shotgun with no real application, the 870 is the one to have. I have a black synthetic 870 express and love it. If you run out of ammo, it works equally well as a battering ram, baseball bat, boat paddle, hammer, crutch, tent pole, etc. The thing has always run like a swiss watch and probably will for the rest of time. The mechanism is just too stupid to fail.

Yep, between the time I took in deciding the model I wanted & the time for my contact to get it ordered. It's sitting at my house now, waiting for me.

Monarch finally came in!
Wow, it's a big scope.






Picked up some rings yesterday & didn't do enough research. Tikka uses a proprietary width 'rail' on top of their receivers & a weaver base ring won't clamp on. Have to pick up a ring base today to be able to fit the rings. Not sure yet if I'll need to switch to medium height or not. High is perfect without the ring base.

A guy at my work mentioned it but after talking to some workers while shopping for a Shotgun he said they are closing the under performing stores. Makes sense to me.

I am looking for a shotgun for Deer/Turkey with occasional small game and waterfowl use.

Was looking at the Mossberg 535, but after holding one it felt cheap. Mainly liked that because it came with 2 barrels. The only ones I have found so far in store are Turkey/Waterfowl and couldn't buy a rifled barrel from that store. Next on the list is a 870 Express Super Mag w/ 2 barrels, but wrong lengths... The search continues!
