There is no "Common Sense Gun Regulation". There is only unconstitutional gun restriction.

People who hate black rifles....are racist!

Pdx1....my fav

"ya know the favorite saying around here "play stupid games win stupid prizes"? once someone does something, they have a whole lot of personal responsibility they need to eat. sometimes its lead flavored with a thin copper shell."

Chalk me up to PDX-1's also
George Washington didn't use his right to free speech to defeat the British, He shot them!

One cannot fully appreciate their Citizenship until they've fought for it.

Yes, I do prepare for war. If no war happens in my time so be it, but my kids will be prepared for it in their time.

PDX-1 for now. I may switch to Federal Hydra-Shock as it's what the local pd carries.

When I shot .40 my favorite load was the Remington 165 gr. Golden Saber for its combination of energy, momentum and penetration. Recoil might be a tad higher but not really noticeable to me. It covers all the bases. I also used the same bullet in a lot of my handloads.

I'm surprised that no one has posted a link to the "approved" list yet.

I carry these...

they always cycle through the gun without any issues and i like the way they expand.
