Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Re: Competition Setup
« on: April 21, 2015, 12:49:09 PM »
Sean loaned me his gear, but I've been rained out 2 months now. He has a nice Comptac holster and two comptac double mag holsters. I forget the exact total, but I looked them up. Each of those  three pieces are between $60-$7- each.

I got an Unclemike's holster and an Uncle Mikes Double mag holster. I need to get one more mag holster. I also now have 5 mags for my Glock 17.

I do have a Fobus for my PX4 compact, and will eventually try that gun out 1 time. But, that Fobus holster is an upgrade from the base Fobus holster that doesn't have a retention screw. All of the Glock 17 Fobus holsters in College Station are the cheaper variety. I can't find one locally with that adjustment screw (to loosen the tension on the gun a bit). So, I just bought the Uncle Mike's one. However, the paddle piece on it sticks me in my hip and makes my side hurt - so I converted it with the included part to be a straight belt holster.

I'm still waiting to try this stuff out, though. If I still had a beater Beretta 92 - I'd probably use that instead of the Glock. But, I sold that one to help cover the cost of the Brigadier.

Too many vitamins can give you CANCER, major new study warns the millions who take them



Quote
Dr Tim Byers – one of the world’s top cancer experts – examined research papers spanning 30 years.

He looked at three widely taken ­over-the-counter pills and supplements, vitamin E tablets, beta-carotene and folic acid, and warned against exceeding the recommended daily amount.

Dr Byers said: “We are not sure why this is happening but evidence shows that people who take more dietary supplements than needed tend to have a higher risk of developing cancer.

Now, I have heard it requires a belt or shoulder holster. But, doesn't the holster HAVE TO have a retention strap, or something like that?

but I am looking forward to a new Beretta made in TN.

You'll be waiting until next year then... More than likely

The wait is well worth it

Not really. You can have the exact same gun now - just has "MD" written on it  :P

FIREARM ACCESSORIES / Re: WTT - HK Sticker for Ruger sticker
« on: April 19, 2015, 05:16:03 PM »
I've bought four Ruger pistols over the last 15 months. An LCR, an LCRX, a Blackhawk and a Mark IV Hunter. Your post got me to digging through my Ruger boxes and found only the Mark IV came with a sticker. I don't collect stickers so your welcome to it. Like you I live in CS so email me at
[email protected]. I'm off Weds. Evening and Thursday this week so I'm good for a meet on those two days.

Ok. I'll email you later today. Thanks :)

That would have been all over the national news BEFORE it even got close to passing. I knew it had to be fake.

If you had that in 9mm, I'd have probably already bugged you until you let me try it  :P

Sho nuff :P

There is an interesting article in it about how to grip a gun. Some new info in their for me. Say you are rigt handed - the author suggests to do 60/40 grip strength wise, with your LEFT hand holding tighter than the right hand that is on the gun. He even suggests 70/30%. I've never heard that before.

He also gives some details on tilting your left/off hand more forward. I found it interesting. I may give it a shot the next time I am at the range to see if that helps any on double taps.

I'd love to get that if I can find it. I'll be keeping my eye out. Any other interesting articles?

I bought it at HEB.

They have some articles about other Beretta products,. I don't have it in front of me right now

I noticed the same thing when I first had my M&P, but it eventually was not an issue. I have since done the APEX FSS and D/CAEK kit on it, among other things, and it is worlds different.

Glad to hear

Handguns and Revolvers / Beretta magazine
« on: April 18, 2015, 01:45:31 PM »
Came across this at the grocery store today:



I flipped thru it and decided to get it. Some interesting info on the M9 and a bit more on the testing on the gun after itw as picked. Still reading the first part - there are many different articles inside the magazine.

Worth getting if you are a Beretta fan - They printed it since this is the 30th anniversary of the M9 being the chosen military gun.
