...Which I'll be using tomorrow.

 

 

One day if I am successful enough I might buy a Perazzi or Krieghoff, but you end up only shooting skeet with one gun, even if you have multiple.

My associate shoots skeet with a 14" Remington 870 Vang Comp system. Blows my mind.

How's he do with it?

 

My gun club has a "Pump Gun Challenge" competition every year.  This is my only pump gun, but I thought about using it.  Maybe I could put a stock on it for that purpose, but it'd still be just as ridiculous.

He kicks butt with the 14". Vang Comp back bores the barrel which keeps the shot really tight even at distance. But he's really good all the same.

Thanks, this gun was under $300. I needed something small enough to carry that isn't a 22 and over $500. The fact that it is a James Bond-esque gun and able to be concealed in my suits are two bonuses. I look forward to going to the countryside after Christmas and shooting a couple hundred rounds through it.

My dad carries the same Bersa in .380, but I personally find it too big for every day carry. The Kel-Tec P-3AT I carry is slightly less accurate, but significantly smaller and lighter. The main issue I have with the Bersa is how wide it is. It would be nearly impossible to carry it in a front pocket of jeans or trousers that are even slightly un-baggy without showing. The Kel Tec is perfectly slim and practically disappears into the pocket holster.

Plus, if I remember correctly, it's a single-stack mag and doesn't have much more capacity than the P-3AT at 6+1, right? The downside is that it lacks a safety though, so I keep it chambered when it's in the car, but not in my pocket.

Quick Google shot of the Kel-Tec:


I picked mine up for $270 out-the-door.

^^^ Would you like to clarify the intent of that statement?

Take it one step further and avoid the gun thread while you are at it.

Putting together an AR-15 build. Been planning it for a while, unfortunately I couldn't have planned for a worse time. If it was any other time of any year, I'd have all my parts, no back orders, and start assembly and shooting by the middle of next week. Instead, with everyone concerned about "the government taking away their guns" (if you can't tell, I don't believe for more than a second that any AR ban will pass. Maybe high cap mag, but even that I don't think will even make it to the floor), I have almost half of my build, both receivers included, backordered. The receivers (I ordered a Mega Arms forged aluminum upper with m4 rails and their matching forged lower) were estimated at a full 7 months of backorder. But by the end of January I should have everything else if the Bravo Company compensator comes back in stock any time soon. Hopefully the estimate on my receivers was a severely liberal estimate, and I get them sometime before March or even maybe May. July would be a buzzkill.

Also, planning on buying a Benelli SBE II for hunting/clays soon, probably around March. My LGS has the mossy oak camo 12 gauge/28" barrel model in, and it felt really good in my hands.

You're not kidding. I picked up a bunch of magazines and a few evil rifles very shortly after the massacre, but before the presidents speech and the timing couldnt have been better. All were acquire at MSRP and I could easily get a 300% return on these goods if I sold today, which I would do in a second if they werent being kept in another state. Like you I don't think we will see another ban.

I expect ammo to be the real pisser for shooters. 223 is going for almost $1/round. That's if you can find it. 308 is actually less expensive currently.

It also seems like you cant even find .22, which I would have thought would be the last caliber people would want to panic-hoard. What's the deal with that?
