    godddd. Retyping all this because I accidently hit the back button. UGH I decided my next order to be from ACW. I want the smaller brimstone. I might carry it IWB, or in official capacity OWB sometimes. I'm having a tough time deciding between 9mm and 45acp. I'm a 9mm guy (always have been)...

    What a stellar time for the 1911 fanatic. So many variations of the iconic platform with offerings in an array of calibers from talented builders to suit an individual, from plinkers to heavy hitting African Cape Buffalo hunting rounds and a plethora of options in between. So, what's your...

    So, I just spent some time in a closed training group with some friends of mine in BPD. We watched about 1.5 hours worth of Bodycam / Dashcam footage of officer-involved shootings. Say whatever you like about shot placement, modern ammo etc, all of that is completely valid, but a VERY clear...

    Well went to the range over the weekend. Took two of my Wilson 1911s. One in 45acp and the other in 9mm. Both 4" Professionals, the 9mm is LWT version. Accuracy, speed and capacity went to the 9mm, no surprise. But here is the kicker, I found myself thinking about carrying the 9mm on...

    Took this pair in on a local trade and I just have no use for them. These are the early High Standard Derringers, Type 1, Model D-100 that were made from 1962-'67. They have the Eagle rollmark on the left side and were produced in Hamden, CT. They will shoot 22 short/long/long rifle. Excellent...

    SOLD PENDING FUNDS Here is a very nice Wilson Combat branded Marvel #2 Conversion slide barrel,kit with 2 metal 10 round magazines. Got this in a trade and probably will never use it, as I either shoot 45 or 9. Excellent condition looks to be used sparingly. These were made by Marvel (still are)...

    I have several 1911s all colts. I have learned through trial and error that I prefer 10m, .45acp, .45 colt(SAA), .357 mag (Python), and don't really enjoy .38 sp or .38 super or .40 s&w and can't stand shootin a 9mm. They just don't feel right when they go bang. My question is, given my...

    Can you guys suggest me the best I have two in option AR-10/AR-15! Or should I go for mags as I'm about to learn hunting. So what are the best option for where to buy them? I'm putting up in Miami, Florida and I'm pretty much optimist about online sellers.

    Up for grabs is my Wilson Combat AR9 Carbine Rifle. It has a 16" fluted barrel and is Armor Tuff Black. I recently received an AR9Pistol and do not need both of these. I've had this rifle less than a year and shot about 300 rounds total through it. It is a pristine and wonderful thing to shoot...

    I have been looking at pistol caliber carbines for quite a while now and have received some recommendations, but now I am looking at Olympic Arms for a 10mm carbine. They can also supply uppers for 9mm and .45acp. The magazines are proprietary and are pricey at about $45.00 a copy. This would...

    9mm 1911's are a lot of fun to shoot. The .38 Super is a really versatile cartridge, spanning light Action Pistol loads to low end .357 magnum range loads. I have a couple 9mm 1911's, one a Wilson Classic with a .38 Super barrel. While I like the concept of a multi caliber gun, switching the...
  18. General Firearm Discussion
    Hello everyone I am starting the search for a small back up gun. The question I pose is I carry a 45acp 1911 do I make sure my bug gun is the same caliber or is it ok to carry another caliber? Say 9mm? I'm really thinking I should carry one caliber but was wondering what ya'll think.
