    I'd buy one of the new Pythons if I found one in a shop. I think they only offer stainless, would prefer a blued one but you wont catching me paying extortion price for it. If I'm going to overpay for something, and I do often, it'll be a 1911.

    Finally suppressed my over-the-top 10/22. Excited to shoot the only ammo that I have in large supply :l 9806886E-6D67-41D6-A13B-D5FA51CC551C.jpeg

    I’m down to my last Zebra F-301 compact pen so I decided to upgrade.

    Tactile Turn finally put out a slim version of their bolt action pen. Also picked up their knife too.
    Digging both.

    I just ordered one of these guys with blue tritium insert (Amsler Hurricane 2.0). Definitely the cheapest custom knife I’ve ever purchased at $165 with insert.

    I’m thinking about purchasing a hand gun to take to the range/inlaws farm and get proficient. I’ve decided I probably want to go with Glock unless there’s some big glaring issue I’ve missed. My main question is would you guys prefer 17 or 21? I’ve read in circles about .45 v 9mm and I haven’t been able to make a definite lean one way or the other.

    I’d actually recommend a Ruger Mark IV, shoot 22LR for days at pennies on the round. Either full size is fine and just preference. 9mm is less expensive per round and typically more widely available.

    You can always shoot both 9mm and 45ACP at a range before settling on one (before you decide whether or not you love the hobby, just test it out.)

    I'm after the comfort, bells and whistles aren't likely to be much different than my Beretta/Wilson but I'll keep buying the same gun over and over if it's a good one.

    Any of you mouth breathers shoot competition? I want to get a CZ Czechmate but I'm reading that to shoot the gun with the compensator you need a minimum power factor of 160. Are they saying I can't shove some standard 115gr ball in there and pew pew pew away?

    Forget the Czechmate (I'll probably buy it anyway), found something only half as useful and nearly twice the price.

    I'm in love.

    Picked up a Shadow II Orange, then got an additional slide custom milled so the Holosun doesn't sit a foot above the gun on a 'plate'.

    O/U's on the other hand, near impossible to find decent used ones, especially at a discount.

    Two new guns today, decked out Langdon Beretta (NP3 parts, spartan sights and trigger job) and a fancy Phoenix Redback. No gun I own is as smooth as that Redback.

    Another Holosun arrived in the mail today. Rolled the dice on the new ACSS reticle and boy am I glad I did. For whatever reason the ACSS reticle doesn't fuck with my astigmatism, I see it perfectly fine. Now sure what it is, the lighting in the house, the background in the house, Chinese children getting better at their job, the fact that I'm really high right now, whatever it is if you have an astigmatism I suggest you check it out.
