I'd carry the one that's the lightest, employs the most ammunition per magazine, and doesn't have a thumb safety. Oh, yeah, I'd really like to carry one with a polymer frame and a square,...

You guys shouldn't be so critical of the French cops' shooting acumen. After all, have you ever tried shooting over your shoulder, while running away? ;)

Seems to me you'd lose a little weight with the M4, as opposed to an HBAR. I have both. I have no objections to M4 barrels. Several of my excellent recent builds have been with M4 barrels. It's...

IF there's a threaded hole, but no screw, then, yep, you have (ZOUNDS!!!) a missing screw. Might be able to get one at local hardware. They actually carry some pretty small setscrews.

And Widener's price of $20 per k isn't bad at all. That's only $1 per k more than my dealer price @ Graf's. I'm hoarding ammo now, as the prices are just too low for me to sell. I'm going to...

I have a dealer account at Graf's. I get better prices, but no free shipping. Found a Graf's invoice for 10k S&B lpp; $26+ for "freight," plus hazmat. Pretty sure that Powder Valley charges about...

Couple of friends have hammer-fired pistols, e.g., Beretta and Browning H.P. I'll try some in those hammer-fired pistols. Even if they work, I'm still pretty much screwed, as it'd be pretty hard to...

Didn't know that Pro Ears offered muffs that use 123s. Both of my Pro Ears use N batteries. I can recharge 123s, but haven't checked to see if I can get rechargeable Ns.
