    Knives vs. Rifles- some data

    Dunno the truth of this; as we all [should] know you can do a lot of finagling with statistics…note that this compares blades to rifles only…anyway: https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/09/27/fbi-people-killed-knives-rifles/

    SDS / Tisas - opinions ?

    Anybody own & regularly shoot a Tisas? Specifically, I’m looking at a stainless 4.25in (?) commander size; it has the black grips. ( sorry, I forgot the model# ). Curious to know opinions of Tisa, esp fit. & finish, and accuracy.. Wondering if it’s worth $580 range.

    1911 & Wilson Shok-Buff ?

    To anybody who uses WC Shok Buffs, got a few questions… By the numbers: 1. How long have you used them? 2. Notice it causing any wear or stress someplace you wouldn’t expect? 3. Do you notice reduced recoil ? I.e does it actually help getting back on target? 4. Did you keep your stock recoil...

    Ronin owners: best holsters ??

    I guess this section is the best place to ask… A number of us have Spgfld Ronins since they came out in 2020. Mine is approx 14-15 mo old now. Full size, in .45… Looking for advice on a holster, preferably from those with the same model as mine. What did you get?? Thanks in advance! T Wave

    Custom Grips link

    Hey guys n gals, Here’s a source for grips that seems to me to be a good one… I’ve bought 3-4 sets of walnut 1911 grips from Lance, and he kindly sent them entirely unfinished - just the bare wood. Took minimal sanding to add to my RIAs (I love the ones where I just treated with a coat or two of...

    RIA 1911 - guide rod ques.

    Apologies if this ought to be in the Lounge, but anyway: I have a Rock Island 1911 ( model is 51431 I think ), and it has a full length guide rod. I prefer the GI guide setup (unless someone knows a definite/decided advantage for full length?). My ques is: keeping the existing recoil spring, is...

    Good range bag tool

    I went to Bass Pro today (big mistake for me usually) and found an interesting Leatherman, the T2. And T4 (the one I bought, below). Both have flat head screwdrivers suitable for 1911 screws, and a Phillips for those other applications. Interesting little screwdriver is the tip of the reamer...

    In the thread “Got my CCW today..!” I saw where the topic of Lead and health came up. Indoor ranges, pos/neg air pressure, hand wipes, etc etc were all mentioned. Quest: is the health issue respiratory, skin absorption related, or both ? Whats worse? Several mentioned telling their doc and...

    Fiber Optic sights

    All, they seem easy to replace, but… Does anyone know how long an FO tube should keep its ‘brightness’ ? Are they expected to degrade? Do cleaning fluids/solvents affect service life ? I’m thinking of discoloration, damage, etc. Thanks, TW
