Re: Which 22lr kit for Glock 17

The Advantage Arms is a aluminium slide, Tac Sol is a steel slide. The steel slide will feel more like the standard weight.

My wife has an Advantage Arms for her G23, loves it.

Re: Best CCW for $500?

I'm a SIG kinda guy. However, I have been known to carry a Glock. Family members all carry their own Glocks. You can get a police trade-in for about $320. Police Express Supply has more 22's, occasional 23's. Spend another $300 on a 22 conversion kit and shoot the heck out of it at $6.50 for a box o...

I've heard recommendations of bear bells (jingle bells you wear) to let the bear know youre coming and pepper spray if you get attacked. Sometimes hard to tell brown bear scat from other scat. Brown bear scat has little bells in it and smells like pepper. (sorry, couldnt resist). The Governments rec...

I dont think reading the Koran makes you evil, it's what you do with it. Plenty of examples of someone reading/quoting the bible and using that info worng (Westborough Baptist Church, Christian identity, KKK, etc.)

Re: Anyone carrying a Glock 36

My daughter carries a G36 on her CCW. She's 5'5", 130..she shoots it like a house a fire. Out shoots most of the boys and men with their M1911's and other various pistols. The recoil doesnt bother her. She usually carries it in a purse made for CCW. I enjoyed shooting it and got 1 for myself. I carr...

I'd like to run this by the collective SBS knowledge.

From the majority here and elsewhere, this can then have a shoulder stock OR a pistol grip, in this...

Re: SBS double barrel

Maybe wrong term..convert a shotgun with a shoulder stock by shortening barrel to less than 18" and convert to pistol grip. I believe is called a "Weapon from a Shotgun", $200 stamp (thought I had seen that as another version of AOW).

Re: SBS double barrel

Does the SBS need to have the shoulder stock still attached? If the barrels are shortened and the grip changed to a pistol grip, does it then become an AOW?
