Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

I had the brass frame in the vice on my Milling machine. Had the spring in place & was just trying to catch a thread with the screw that holds it all together.
PING! Sucker flew across the shop right into a big pile of scrap metal. Never to be found.

Ouch. At least I found mine. I don't even want to think about how pissed I would have been if I hadn't.

No kidding. I am wanting try the smith and wesson mp40 and the Glock 22 before I decide which one. The XD shoots so good, going to be a tough decision.

Ran across this while researching the XD....apparently this guy had a problem with his striker retaining pin on 3 different XD's. Is this guy doing something wrong or just bad luck? Really the only bad review I found:

I just found a slightly-used Grip Pod (the $150, steel-reinforced version) for $45 at a local shop. I'm pretty pumped to pick it up and put it on tonight. The guy said it looks like new.

For those of you leaving drool-trails about Springfields XD pistols - here's a fairly recent article about some of their recent developments. This 'level of refinement' all came about after I got my .45 model a few years ago. I like that .45acp, but it is a might thickish in the grip. If you've got a small to medium hand, the .45 XD might not be your best bet.

Once again, Bud's drops prices and brings me yet again to the brink of temptation....

$541 for an XDM 9mm compact.

I came thisclose to ordering that XDM just now - unfortunately, Bud's has a week backlog time for processing orders right now, and I wanted it by Friday so I could take it home to Kirksville this weekend. If I could have got it shipped quickly, it would be a done deal, but since there's no hurry now, I'll probably wait until next month and justify it as a birthday present to myself.

Was planning to try to pick up an XD in .40 cal, but just traded an old Colt .357 Trooper Mk III 8" straight across for a Sig 250 Compact with both .40 and .357 modules.
