Re: Hunting with silencer in OR

I recall reading a thread that discussed "beams" used in night hunting. I don't recall the state however, the law said battery power and night vision was ok, but no beams. Well the kicker was, no beams at all; that included any inferred beams used with the night vision. Talk about catching you in t...

Re: G19 & Tirant9 Issues

I shoot my TiRant 9 on a factory threaded Glock 19, haven't had a single hiccup. My only experiences with aftermarket barrels on Glocks involve a Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel in a Glock 23 that was horribly out of spec (the barrel) and unreliable, and a Lone Wolf threaded barrel in a Glock 21 tha...

Re: Backpacks

Only packs I have are military; large alice, ACU Molle, and OCP medium Molle ruck which is like a larger version of the assault pack with a frame. Of the 3, the ACU Molle ruck is my favorite due to the horizontal and vertical straps to cinch down the main compartment. The OCP pack looks good, but ca...

Re: Suppressed Pistol, Which Make/Model??

Is there much of a difference between the MK25 and the P226 in terms of using as a suppressor host? MK25 internals are parkerized for swimming in salt water, and it has a cool anchor and sticker on it. Otherwise, same gun. I have a 226 Elite which comes with a beavertail, most important feature to ...

Re: Sig P229/220 with Osprey????

I don't have a 229 but I have a 228 I shoot suppressed. Wet or dry I catch more grit in the face with the Sig than I get from my Glock, dunno if it's a design issue but the Sig rarely leaves the house. I've already decided not to pursue a threaded barrel for my 226 because of it.

Shot side-by-side, my Glock 19 with TiRant 9 is significantly quieter than a full size M&P 45 with TiRant 45 (147gr for 9mm; 230gr for .45). All but one of my handguns is a 9mm,...
