      I'm going to be that guy.. Ditch the crapco/hogue look! Unless you're intentionally creating a mockery of the Russian militants attempts to 'Americanize' their weapons, there's no reason an AK...

      If you don't want to think much about the purchase decision, then a Glock 17 or 19 is your best choice. Boring, but true.

      With no explanation why (:D ) my preferences on a sub $600 handgun would...

      Interesting that you'd choose a 239 for maximum concealability. The slide alone is about the same size as a 228/229, and the Hogue grips add a substantial amount of girth to the frame (although it...

      Congrats on the new purchase -- I have the .40 version. I like it, but I'm still trying to figure out why I bought it :laugh:

      There's very little risk in transferring through an FFL -- all the paperwork responsibility is on their end, and they're not likely to lose your purchase because they'd have to answer to the ATF (who...

      If you're buying an SKS, and wondering what to watch out for, I'd say your largest concern should be idiots who think their $300 (tops) rifle is worth $900. Any Tapco modifications should result in...
