    • I've put about 3k through the Beretta. 


      Only malfunctions have been user induced. I think I'm riding the slide stop. The thicker backstrap prevents this, and I'd rather take the easy way out instead of re-learning how to hold a gun. Its not an issue that i can get to happen consistently.



      As for holsters, ive taken to using a bubba'd alien gear. The crossbreed has a crazy amount of retention, and a few others I've tried have too little.


      I've had the opportunity to handle a few other beretta m9a3's, and they are very consistent. Beretta has consistency nailed down, far better than CZ or Sig


      Some rust showed up on the grip screws, so those were replaced with houge stainless grip screws


      The gun seems to slightly prefer 147gr ammo. This is in contrast with gen 5 glocks, that seem to shoot 115gr a bit better. All my carry ammo is 147gr, so I'm happy.


      I wish the front sight was a tad larger, with a bigger tritium lamp. Its like 6" out there, it could stand to be larger. That said i don't loose it during recoil. The transistion from double to single isn't that bad thanks to growing up with a P.38, and a lighter hammer spring. The reset on SA has just enough take-up to not make me feel like the gun was going to outrun me, like on my PPQ

    • Looks like a clone of the marlin 795 or mossberg plinkster rifles. Being a blowback .22lr, there's a limit to how different you can be.


      All things being equal, I'd go with the marlin version, as marlins "micro groove" .22lr barrels are fantastically accurate, and there's not a huge difference between them price wise. I don't think mags interchange between them unfortunately.

    • Had some time today so I made a sheath for one of my handmade ferrocerium rods. #god #family #westvirginia #leather #leathercraft #ferroceriumrod #handcrafted #striker #fire #firestarter

    • Greetings all, 

      Thoughts on the Rossi RS22 Rifle.

      If, like me, your hands are starting to get stiff from age or arthritis,  this thing is a lifesaver. I use one every day at work, and ordered another one for the house. Recommended by the Arthritis Foundation,  as well as looking cool. It takes an hour or so to get used to it, but worth the effort. No longer need to wear a compression glove when I come home from work. 

      About 40 bucks US, but worth it, IMHO.
