Wonder if her finger gun is SA or Wheelie.

Liberals are intent on the destruction of merica.

I was happy to see him go. He was in the afternoon, though. Not really prime time. And, I think they cut his time in 1/2 a while back.

Sorry - me no clean them  :th_thicon_lol:

It is chilly. I was just outside. The cloudy, damp day with the wind blowing so hard makes it feel colder than it is

See, I clean mine after every range trip. I also reoil my carry guns every 2 weeks, and my night stand gun about 1x a month.

Handguns and Revolvers / Beretta APX and Orange Ameriglo sights
« on: October 05, 2019, 02:36:27 PM »
I picked up a Beretta APX back in June. After the $100 rebate, the gun would be $279. Not a bad deal. Striker fired guns are not usually my thing - but it was a Beretta. No place I know has one for rent - but I gave it a shot for the price.

It shot pretty well. But, because they made the front dot larger than the 2 rear dots - I tended to shoot the gun low when trying to line up the dots. Sean suggested that I cover the rear dots - so, I put electrical tape over the rear dots. When I shot the gun, it shot fine at that point. But, I don't care for an all black rear sight.

So, I ordered some Ameriglo night sights, and I sent the slide off to Beretta. They installed the sights for free, and I got the slide back from Beretta this past week. I went to shoot it today.

The sights worked fine. I no longer shot the gun low, like I did with the factory sights.

The gun shot pretty well. I do still think I prefer normal sight sights with white rings around the tritium. But, I gave these a shot, and I will keep them on the gun. The orange looks great in the light - but in dimmer light, white circles around the tritium are actually easier to see.

The APX Centurion shoots well. However - once again I see that DA/SA is just my thing. The only striker fired gun I absolutely love is the Walther P99 - but even that is DA/SA.

I will keep the APX. It shoots fine. And if I ever get my $100 rebate - the price was awesome. A sub $300 handgun! However, I do not think I will ever carry it. I just prefer carrying my HK P2000 or Walther P99 more.

But no, I'm not gonna rush off and sell it. Which... Given what some of you guys know about me - is pretty amazing.

Truth is, after going thru so, so, so many guns over the past 20+ years - there really isn't anything I want that I don't already have. The APX will sit in the safe, and I will occasionally shoot it. Maybe my son will fall in love with it as he gets older, and I'll give it to him. We'll see.

But, given that I previously bought a Ruger P95 years ago, twice, to have a cheap vehicle gun. I could always use the APX for that, given the price that I paid for it. And, the APX is a better gun than the P95 ever was.

no, haven't seen The Accountant - looks like it could be "good" - will check to see if it's available at local Redbox - thanks

Redbox usually only has new movies - or older movies if a sequel to it is coming out. I do not see that older movie being at a Redbox. You would likely have to buy it or "rent" it online

Sorry it did not work out for you. I sent my slide off to Beretta to get nightsights installed. I hope I get it back soon.

Seems like the only take-away was that he's upset the monster has broken loose and the Democratic party longer holds control over it.

They were fine and dandy when the mobs were out terrorizing conservatives, but now that they're no longer safe now too AND their party's unity is threatened, suddenly it's no longer tolerable anymore.

And anyway, didn't he say he was going to move to Europe in protest if Trump got elected?

He already lives there, from my understanding

I have seen all 3 of them. #3 was a little TOO over the top at the end. But overall, they were pretty good. #1 and #2 were enjoyable

My girlfriend has one - the kind that you can rotate.

I set it up for her. It isn't as good as my arlo cameras, but it is also a hell of a lot cheaper. For the money, they are fantastic

Damn, you are lucky. Glad it was nothing serious in the end.

Many years ago, I hydroplaned across 4 lanes of traffic and ended up on the other side, facing 180 degrees from the way I was driving. I slid between traffic and miraculously never hit anyone or anything. But scary as hell!!!
