Ruger has them all beat on the scope mounting system and I would probably buy a Ruger rifle just for the integral bases and furnished rings just to solve the scope mounting delima.

Nice find on the Mini Ranch. I have had great success with Weigand Combat on my Ruger PC4. It is worth the money.

Gonna pick up a Ruger LCP just in time for the summer. Also have a G19 and XDM Compact .45 I can carry with a King Tuck. That's gonna be it though probably, you have no idea how much convincing it took my wife at each step so I'll take my three as a win. Actually, she never said yes to the LCP but I keep talking about it! You guys with gun wives are lucky.

Yeah, I've been eyeballing one on Amazon. The irons aren't awful, but they leave something to be desired in my opinion. What optic are you rolling with?

I had a Supernova a couple years ago, but ended up selling it. It was very front heavy, and after being pampered by the awesomeness that is the Remington 870 for years, I can't seem to find anything I like better.

Consider the S&W BG380. Mine has been flawless. Feeds even empty shells, I kid you not.

Anyone seen the newest auto-loading shotgun from Benelli, the Ethos? What a beauty!

Yeah, I saw it in my American Rifleman today. Great looking gun. Not thrilled by the price though.

Fair point. I suppose you can call Benelli the HK of shotguns.

I can tell you first hand you wont have a problem with Benelli's pricing if you put 10X the price of the gun in shells through it.

Gun? Hah! In the UK I could be sent to gaol (that's jail, spelt properly) for carrying my PM2 in public! If I carried one of your Glock's etc, I might never see daylight again!

Just bought this last week. M&P Shield 9mm. This will be my new conceal carry as soon as I put some rounds through it.

Nice. Great guns. If you don't know about it already, I suggest an Apex trigger kit. Makes the trigger much nicer IMO.

New AR. Had one I didn't like (terrible accuracy), so this is the new one. Very nice, shoots much better. Three shot group from this morning, before the rains moved in and closed the range. This is a "Sionics" brand made here in town. Very well made, quality parts, no frills, just great weapons. This was a "Demo" I found at their shop, but I'm very pleased with it. Can't wait to put a better scope on it. The 7x I used today is hard to see with at 100 yards, good for general stuff, but certainly not a target scope. Looking forward to shooting with the 24x next weekend if the rings show up on time.

Ammunition is going out of sight. Just saw a box of 40 S&W Silvertips at the local WM priced at $48.37. I like my 9mm's more every day

.40s are cheaper than 9s where I am. They're also in stock more. .223s are the worst though. **** things are bleeding my wallet.

HK P30 .40 Safety - can conceal carry this and use it to protect the house. This is my favorite handgun to date...
