Lots of .40 too.  I picked up a bunch of 12ga Rem Gun Club target loads for $5.99/box.

In regard to .380s, this is what I've always wanted.



Beretta 84FS Inox? Nice gun.

I went into my LGS fully intending on purchasing a 92FS inox this summer, but ended up finding that the grip seemed wide and uncomfortable in my hands. Ended up with the M&P9, which seemed to have a very heavy trigger compared to my (Ruger) SR9c that is my carry weapon. Had a lot of FTEs with it before I realized it was simply a heavier trigger than I was used to... A heavier squeeze fixed all of my problems immediately, but I think I'm going to get a trigger job for it at some point.

1000

I've got the 90-two and like the grips just fine.  (Updated version of the 92 with 17 less moving parts.)  Solid piece IMO.  Trigger isn't the best, but isn't the worst.

I have the Inox 92FS with a steel guide rod instead of the plastic thing they stick in them these days. I'll eventually send it out to Tooltech for tritium sights. That reminds me, I need to get the D spring and install it. It's a carry gun so I don't want to do too much to it.

Nope. Shipping is free and tax only applies to KY residents. Shows as in stock for me.

I'd get the Apex DCAEK kit and see which combination of Apex and stock springs suits you. My M&P 40 is currently set up with a slightly heavier trigger than my stock M&P 9, but I added the Apex AEK trigger which reduces takeup and overtravel. I like my 40 better than the 9 because the Apex parts give me a crisper trigger with less takeup, even though it is heavier.

I should get that too.

 

Is it this?

That's it. You should be able to find just the D spring by itself. That is unless you have to have the all steel trigger too. I was thinking about having the trigger bar worked on too to get rid of over travel. For now I'm opting not to do that.

I am seriously thinking about buying a bolt action .50 cal bmg. Now, Gods knows I don't need it but I want one so bad. shog[1].gif

I am thinking Serbu single shot. Supposedly accuracy is great out of the box, apparently recoil is manageable with their muzzle break and is a relatively light gun. Any other options.
Thoughts.

Thoughts? Yeah I have a few. If you don't have a 2000 meter range and plan on shooting it no closer than a 1000 meters you're wasting your money. Shooting a 50 under 1000 meters is well dumb. You better have deep pockets too. Feeding a 50 gets expensive after a while. I wouldn't get too hung up on "accuracy" either. Any of these kinds of rifles will out outperform you. Get a good ballistic calculator while you're at it. You have a whole lot of variables to contend with that are foreign to most shooters.

My range goes only to 650 yds, but I live in NV so I could shoot this thing in the desert. I know it will be expensive. Will see, I'm affraid that if I buy a .338 Lapua or a .300 WinMag (much more practical and realistic options) I will always be wanting a 50 cal.

Look up 408 Cheytac. If I were to get around to getting a big gun that's the route I would go. I'm very fond of the Lapua round. Once you get some brass collected up reloading it is easy and fairly cheap.

If you're interested in the 338 Lapua, you really should check out the 338 Norma. A number of significant advantages over the Lapua variant.

Why choose a Beretta 92FS over a Taurus PT92?
post #2565 of 3144
Looking for a good range gun to buy (or get gifted for my bday in March) in 9mm of course.

I shot the Sig P226 Navy a few weeks ago and CREAMED over it.

Anything that nice by another manu for a smaller price?
