Have been "experimenting" a bit

6 posts in this topic

, which can be dangerous and frustrating for me. I purchased an "attractive price point" double action only 9mm pistol, polymer framed for lightweight carry, and possible use in a pinch if necessary. I did this some months ago. The trigger and I don't see eye to eye at all, however, it has been accurate at 10 meters or less, which is the distance this thing is designed for. Not going to mention the brand name yet still want to wring it out a bit more. Had to send it back to its home factory, due to some reliability issues right out of the box, and that was frustrating. However, the factory did replace almost everything immediately and instead of a four stage reset on the trigger, I now have one audible "click" upon reset.

The trigger is polymer, which feels "weird", to me, as an older dog, I prefer metal. However, at one time I had two Taurus revolvers, both of the "CIA hammerless configuation", enclosed hammers, and broker both metal triggers off the revolvers at the range during normal fire. Yes, Taurus eventually got around to repair and replace, took many weeks to get them back. I sold them off since we were no longer compatible.

I am still looking for my "smaller" ideal 9mm pistol. Like the innate reliability and accuracy of the (friends owned) 9mm Shields I've fired, but dislike how truly thin they are.

Seriously thinking about a Shield with a Hogue grip on it, to give my tactile grip "feel" a warm and fuzzy, or use. Pachmayr grip glove, both the Hogue and the packs I use on other pistols and love them.

perhaps I "fell" for the 10+1 round capacity, (which I can now get close to ) with a Shield, or the weight made me bite. Kind of perplexed with myself at this point. The pistol works for its intended purposes, just can't  get all confident about it for some reason, and THAT, is wholly unacceptable to me.

yea life's a bit@h especially when your "loved one" does not fill the bill I had the same feeling when I got a glock 17 when they first came out must have been that tupperweird box that suckerd me in the feel of the pistol was creepy as you fired the trigger felt like a sucker dart spring gun and weight shifted it rolled around in your hand so I was never confident in my point of aim IE muscle memory the sights were so wide that in order to really put them in a tight group I shaved the front sight a bit. 

a friend has a Sig P938 compact 1911 controls in 9mm and he likes it he told me he tried 3 brands of amm and not a hiccup in fact no negatives at all and he is picky he's a big guy so he like the mag with the pinky extension  all steel they are proud of them but sometimes errrrrr no not really all the time you get what you pay for up and to a point there is a point where it is to grotesque or blingy to look at without thinking thats worse than a diamond studded gold plated AK pistol with a pair of gold plated 40 round magazines with a mag clamp EEEEEyuckfu.

Well thats all I got I was looking at the Beretta Nano online but I have yet to handle one you either give up concealability size weight capacity or ammo snobbish trigger gritty or no grippy touchy feely or looks like a purse gun and then there are the real issues like a decocker sights that look like mosquito bites hangs in your pocket looks like your trying to hide a brick and accessories cost like gold and or impossible to find or try looking for a cheap Bren 10 mag we used to laugh back in the day that the only person with 3 mags was Sonny on Miami vice --(not the Sonny from sonny & cher)

get one of them grip condoms worked for a few I had

I never had the privilege of having the screen writers Crocket and Tubbs did in Miami Vice television show. Besides, I ONLY watched the show near-religiously for the bikini clad females.

I did know personally the originators of the Bren 10, and was not a fan of the 10mm cartridge, still am not a fan.

when I started out as a cop, I truly couldn't imagine a scenario wherein I would "need", two extra high capacity mags for my primary. Now, I feel nekkid if I have ONLY three, 1+2. 

My how times have changed.

I figure you know what your doing TPSnodgrass I ain't a 10mm fan either and I don't need a lot of ammo just enough to balance the load but as for most people ....

Don't get me wrong I love my country, BUT it is not the one I was born into anymore. Outside influences have altered it to a unrecognizable entity, and it is not race or ethnicity it is all lawyered up and all the agencies are armed and have so many rules and laws no one knows where they stand or what rights in a given situation.
I am confused as to what roll to play or responsibility as in past years if you defended someone and they turned around and stated they were not in danger you were up for arrest on any charges the legal system wanted to throw at you,

I'll put it this way if my life is not in immediate jeopardy, it is not my place to save the day no one would be behind me if I went to court witnesses are useless as any first year law student can twist them into a knot. So if an assailant takes out a whole crowd and leaves me and mine alone we are all good since now there are more that 2 sexes which one do I defend or should I ? is this a argument of a threesome or religious cult if I get involved is it a hate crime do I impede on the Dewy decimal system because I eat pork does touching one of them make me a devil or is this an honor fight or killing if I stop it will the family come after me ? or gang are they mother father incestuous family squabble is one the pimp and the others his hoes ? I would feel more at ease shooting a dog kicker people / jurors  like dogs they hate wannabe heroes. 

 I have come to the conclusion if you were not are not a policeman don't get involved CHL class is not training enough for a court I was told years ago never shoot a perfect score it could be held against you.never use a knife if at all possible jury's hate people that use blades it equates to being a knife wielding fiend / psycho shooting someone with a knife is tricky distance distance distance, the laws may have changed but the mentality is lingering count on 6 of the 12 jurors not being in your camp.

As far as reloads 2 is ample even if your only with a 5 shot weapon as in my mind those without training / street experience not blast away and shooting from one skyway to another or across a mall is disregarding innocent civilians if you pull a gun you may go to jail if you fire one you will and have to account for it and every shell fired. if your not an EX officer having a load out fit for incursion into enemy territory some one sill comment negatively on it. and only Ted Kennedy's body guards can tote 144 rounds of ammo. and he is no longer with us.

An ex police officer should carry what and as much as they want as they have real enemies and the courts do not keep criminals in prison or they escape a lot now of days, I knew a trustee that had 30 years aggravated time non supervised on the farm LMAO the things that boy did when he was out of sight or thought he was. at county he was a hall porter run of the building it is amazing how these kinds get favorable treatment even if busted in time be right back on the gravy train, they let car thieves drive and make killers outside trustees with tools like tile knife screwdrivers hammers LMAO. I feel so safe on the outside.

I agree the thug demographic in my home state of California (up north), is far beyond what it used to be. There is no way on Earth, that the local constabulary can keep up with all of the lowlife convicts being let out on the residents of California by JerrytheBerry Brown. I am not shocked at the sheer volume of CCW permits issued by the "cow county" Sheriffs for their people, much to the ire and chagrin of the political pimps in Sacramento. Of course, those permits ARE good all over California, even in San Francisco, Oakland, Los Angeles and San Diego. Pity that those counties would rather force their resident taxpayers to continue to be Slaves of the Elitist-Marxist revolutionaries like Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA. She's a real wind-up dyed in the wool Soros-ite and Communist shill.

Of course, SHE gets her own protection detail while her constituents get the political schnitzel repeatedly up the anus in California's on-going political sodomy of its own electorate. Apparently, they like it enough to not rebel...yet.

I don't believe in civilian "intervention", UNLESS, that civilian is me and mine in the immediate vicinity. We will "intervene" to stop all acts of, and threats of violence against us. Why not? The average response time for law enforcement arrival on-scene, (provided you CAN even get through to local dispatch), is between 6-9 minutes. How long can we be expected to hold our own breath while fighting off the parolees and other social misfits of the Entitlement-Brigades and Free-Cheese-Army?

Where we live now, has a small presence of uniformed law enforcement out and about, and the activity of the thug demographic and their violent predation reflects their utter contempt and lack of fear for the police(all of them) and armed citizenry. So, let's let these predators reap the rewards of their own actions, after all, they certainly don't concern themselves with a shred of empathy or care for their multitudes of victims.

Keep your powder dry, clean up any brass and drive on home. it's the polite thing to do for our communities.

Now these are funny as hell

JerrytheBerry Brown

real wind-up dyed in the wool Soros-ite

social misfits of the Entitlement-Brigades and Free-Cheese-Army?

We have a few south of here every large city breeds these leftist turd stirring race baiters like flies.

Shelia Jackson Lee or Princess Leia of Houston  I'm not sure if thats her hair or a hat but whats between her ears is green free cheese. I love all of those like her when they have a press conference they look like a herd of Siamese twins huddled for a group picture. they all say they are looking out for their constituents but their constituents conditions never change because they do not want to change so the race baiters preach and pander enough to reach the lowest of their followers and like the pied piper they all are they lead them all to their doom, Its sad that after decades the followers don't get it this is America we get to pursue happiness it is not going to be given free on a platter or come in with a welfare check..  What really befuddles me is the educated people with real jobs that pulled themselves out of the ditch still believe in and support that dog & pony show now that is crazy IMHO.

    • You may be more right than you think there are many that are calling for Christs return and even prophesiers of dates I warn all that read this if a man makes a  prophetic statement and it fails to come to pass "THEY ARE NO PROPHET AND NO PART OF GOD. Deuteronomy 18:21-22 20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death."
      21And if thou say in thine heart, How shall we know the word which the LORD hath not spoken?
      22When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
        The Return of the Son of Man (Mark 13:24-27; Luke 21:25-28) 26Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. If there is any doubt on when the Rapture is the above verses should nail it down for those that question. No one knows when Jesus will return PERIOD ! Matthew 24:36-41 36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Saturday is the sabbath The seventh day, Saturday, is the only day ever designated by the term Sabbath in the entire Bible. Not only was Jesus a perfect example in observing the weekly seventh-day Sabbath, but all His disciples followed the same pattern after Jesus had gone back to heaven. Exodus 20:8  Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. If your not sure why you should keep the original sabbath ----- Matthew 5:16-18 16In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. 17Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 18For I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.… If Jesus Christ obeyed the law and the apostles then is it not expected of us to follow Jesus example ? or follow Rome who changed it to Sunday ?  I am as guilty s most in not following Saturday and I have decide to start because I have "LEARNED" I was wrong. It is crazy town and it will get worse as we come closer to the "DAY" --TICK-TOCK TICK-TOCK  ALL THE THINGS WE ARE WATCHING ARE THE COUNTDOWN TO DESTRUCTION ! Everything spoken of in the Bible is ratcheting up but it is going to become law once that has happened we the people in absentia have agreed to it and we all need to be ready IMHO.
    • I noticed that NOW people have considered concentrations in excess of 50 PPM. this is way above any previous concentrations if this were for a few day prophylactic for an oncoming cold irritation or a wound turning reddish OK but not for daily use as a supplement as anyone who takes medication realizes there are different dosages for use as to severity in fact if your hospitalized IV intense therapy more than home use pill form. I am just going to use this on my animals as a few recent problem have not been solved with normal medications although minor I want alternatives and if they work all the better if not --onward through the fog    
    • The end is near, with a generation of snowflakes. The entitlement of idiots that do nothing but whine.    
    • i tried collodial silver once it didn't really do much for the infection i had(may be a dosage issue). you can buy it at a health food store premixed with water so you don't have to worry about turning blue.
    • Ionic & colloidal silver Have been wanting to do this in some quantity in 15 to 20 parts per million or PPM. Wading through all the hype it appears to have benefits against viruses and infections this can be verified by the use of silver preparations used on burn victims. I got a couple of different meters so I can do a comparison and a few ideas to see that takes it to the next level , there is some differing opinions as to using additives other than silver purified water and electricity and a way to test to insure PPM levels I see where the OCD crowd has gone over the edge to where they may as well just swallow a silver bullion piece. what ever happened to less is more, this is why the government has to regulate everything because people over do it is the addictive nature extremism Frankenstein unleashed. I say this because if anyone should attempt the same project remember even though it is only a few but people have turned blue or gray from ingesting too much or too large particles or at least this is the assumption it also happened back in the day when rich people eat drank from silver plates silver wear goblets and even used silver medallions to dunk in their water to purify it and seeing how only wealthy people could afford so much silver and food the blue cast to the skin made people call them blue bloods or so that is my understanding of the story but recently people have turned blue I am just as sure it was from over dose as there is not a clear dosage and many think it is because if silver were tested it first would cost at minimum a billion dollars many years and if it were found to be the wonder many think it is that would take a big bite out of the pharmaceutical industry  as there would be no way to regulate it. I am interested in another arrow in my quiver of treatments as this can be used in the eyes ears nose throat mouth wash and spray on for cuts abrasions and I know of no animals or person that is allergic to silver it may change color on acidic skin but their arm has not rotted off. I will post as I test and prepare this solution and give as much information as I can I am not a lab tech so do not expect ambient air pressure phase of the moon or lay line intersection.
