" Nice bike Chuck, I've always liked the ideal of the sportsters but simply don't fit on them, my knees are way up over the tank and my arms are scrunched up while on them to the point that my movement is limited, my last cruiser was a Kawasaki though, a 1600 Meanstreak in orange ,loved that bike, it looked good and it would haul the mail when you twisted on the loud handle.

Subhuman created the thread looks like I can still shoot a Glock.
" I haven't shot a G23 in nearly 2 years since I traded my last one for my Sig P229 , picked up this new Gen4 G23 about a hour ago, got home, pulled it out of it's case , looked and made sure the barrel was clear, loade 2 mags of some crappy 170 gr.Perfecta FMJ and walked out to my 15 yard stake, was shooting on the sight picture averaging around a second/second and a half per shot ....prettyy good for a new uncleaned gun, crappy ammo and a trigger finger tuned to Sigs and 1911s oh well say hello to my new G23

Subhuman created the thread Glock has returned to my home.
" the Shield has been my wife's pistol since I brought it home and she shot it, since that time I have had to sneak it out to shoot it although I have been allowed to clean it anytime she thought it was dirty lol. For the past 6-8 months she has complained louder and louder about the Shield, it is hard for her to rack, the safety is hard to disengage and engage, she can't load but a few round into the mag without a loader ,and she wanted something a little smaller....problem with smaller is most of her complaints with the shield are magnified with a smaller pistol with the added factor of a harsher recoil so enter the G42.. the little glock has an easy rack slide, no safety to fiddle with, the mags are very easy to load and it is a soft shooting pistol for a little 380,,,problem? every place around here thinks they are gold and they run around $450 new and if you can find one used in the area it $400 so pickins have been kinda slim until yesterday I spotted one in the case at the EPS when I wandered through yesterday, it was priced at $369 with just 1 mag that was in it, we discussed it and I asked about trading the Shield Eric surprised me when he said since I bought the Shield from him new he would give me 80% of what I paid on trade for it...I bought that Shield when they were untouchable for $435 , so I swapped it and 3 Mags for the G42 and he owes me a mag ,( this is of course after approval from SWMBO to trade of her pistol) so here in a little while we are going to go out and get her comfortable with the littlest Glock and see if she can shoot it as good as she did the Shield, she was very happy with feel in her hand and trigger when she handled it yesterday so hopefully the match will blossom further on the range today....now I've gotta find at least 2 more mags for it for spares...
oh here is a picture , not a fan of the 2 tone color but both of us can live with it if it will work for her.

Alessi CQC Commander

https://i.imgur.com/I1OAcrI.jpg

these holsters are a Hybrid pancake design that have snap close loops to attach it to the belt instead of belt slots in the holster body like a pancake holster such as my Alamo for my P229

https://i.imgur.com/Rg3PhTq.jpg

the Advantage of these snap on holsters are ease of removal/attachment over a regular belt slotted holster, BangBang used a fuller body with an under to over belt loop on this prototype he was trying out based on the older Alessi and no mouth stiffener , but the holster body supplies more support to the loops than the Alessi which has more of a wing type loop with an Over to under loop attachment ,difference being unsnap the Alessi loops and pull the holster up to remove, Unsnap the BangBang and pull the holster down to remove, the BangBang has a wider body and curves around and into the hip whereas the thinner body of the Alesi sits more "on" the hip instead of with it, little less comfortable , little less stable IMOP .

the BangBang also runs more cant than the Alessi but less than my Alamo and although the snap on holsters hold the gun high and the gun touches my side they do not ride as stable or as tight to my body as the Alamo Pancake holster does, but if you have the need to disarm during your day than the snap on/off holsters are far mor convenient than the traditional Pancake Holsters, I use the Bang Bang quite often with my 229,40B and P07 but not near as much as I carry in the beautiful detail boned Alomo.

give me your thoughts and chip in if you use either type of holster.
Happy Friday y'all "

Subhuman created the thread Polish P64 9mm Mak.
" After lots of aggravation the Tomcat went to the pawn shop this morning and transformed into this P64 along with an old timer mini Bowie that iv'e had for several years.
the P64 was developed in the late 50s in response to the Soviet push to standardize on the 9mm Mak for all military side arms.
It is a 6 shot , blow back operated pistol that closely resembles the Walther ppk but is claimed to be a total design by the Military Institute of Armament Technology, it entered service in 1964 replacing the 7.62 mm Tokrov as the military side arm, the P64 is no longer produced and is being replaced by WIST-94 in 9x19 but is still in the Polish military and police inventories.

Specs:
Weight 22 oz
length 6.3"
height 4.6"
Barrel is 3.3"
capacity 6 rounds

this one was built in 1977

Subhuman created the thread Savage Model1899.
" the savage model 1899 was the final design of the 1892 wich was developed to compete for the replacement of the 1873 Springfield but lost out to the Krag Jorgensome rifle, following some more refinments it became the Model 1895 wich won the 1896 competition to become the rifle of the New York National Guard but do to a political controversey the contract was canceled , after another round of refinment the rifel became the model 1899 wich was later shortend to the Savage 99. the Savage 99 finally got to serve in WW1 with the Montreal Home Guard as the Model 99D Musket (it had a bayonet lug and a "military style " stock they ordered 2500 unit in .303 Savage.
In the civilian world the 99 was in production from 1899-1998, it is a hammerless lever action originaly fed by a rotary 5 shot magazine and later models had a detachable box magazine, the advantage of the 99 over other lever action rifles was the the rotary mag allowed the use of high performanc "Spitzer" (pointed) bullets over the round nose bullets that the tubular magazines of other lever actions used.
Over it's 100 years of production it was chambered in;
.303 Savage
32-40 Winchester
300 Savage
30-30 Winchester
25-35 Winchester
.250 Savage
.22 Savage Hi-Power
.22-250Remington

" I looked at this little 1911 in a gun store this afternoon and I was instantly enamored with it, smooth action, good trigger, light and comfortable in my hand and although the frame color is subdued it is stunning when you really look at it, it is a mix of pewter/blue that is hard to describe with blue/black G10 grips withe Ruger's phoenix wing etched into the grip and a brushed stainless slide price on it was $600 , my wallet is scared of me returning to that store but it will be a pain in the butt to buy it here in La. and have it shipped home....may have to talk to Eric at the Evil Pawn Shop and see if he can find me one at this price point
