I believe it. The shooting range was the one thing I looked forward to when I was in boot camp. The Navy recruit handbook said we'd be firing an M9 Baretta (I think it was M9 Baretta, I could be mistaken) and a shotgun whose make and model I forgot.

Just watch out for that teacup grip.

What's the teacup grip?

 It's a type of grip thats used when shooting pistols. The idea is to keep your nondominant hand underneath the magazine as some kind of support , instead of two hands locked together and overlapping around the grip frame of the gun .

 The problem with a teacup grip used in conjunction with a semi automatic pistol , is that when there is an accident involving the improper discharge of a round, the magazine can be blown downwards out of the pistol injuring the supporting hand underneath it.

 This can be seen with Glock pistols online. In those cases, in adequate chamber support results in case over expansion which allows the round to basically explode in the barrel. the resulting gases and explosion of which blow the magazine downwards and out of the pistol and can damage the slide and crack the frame. Sometimes, all it takes is a factory or reloaded round that has been double charged, which means it has accidentally been given too much Powder in the casing.

 Basically what it all comes down to, is don't put your hand underneath the magazine. Just like you wouldn't put your hand in front of the barrel and pull the trigger. If something goes wrong, and that magazines comes flying down out of the gun , you don't want your hand there.

 In the same token, never put your hand or any part of your hand near the cylinder of a revolver. There is a small gap the bulle must pass through between the front of the cylinder and the start of the barrel in front of it. Within the small space hot gases and flame escape during the firing of the round. If your hand is anywhere near it , it's going to blow your finger off like a hot dog .

Above all, remember these simple rules. Failure to comply will result in being ripped asunder.

1. Always treat all firearms as if they were loaded. Keep all actions open and on a safe surface when not in use.
2. Never allow the muzzle of any firearm to point at anything you are not willing to destroy or kill.
3. Keep your booger hook off the bang switch and on the frame of the weapon until you are on target and ready to shoot. Do not depend on any mechanical device for safety! Your trigger finger IS your safety.
4. Always be sure of your target, the backstop, and what lies beyond.


My instructor for firearms at the Sheriff's Office was a former Marine Corps Drill Instructor. Ask me how many times I didn't mess up because of that.

lol

Yep. My grandfather was a sharpshooter and then an instructor during his time in the army. He taught everybody else how to shoot, then he taught my dad how to shoot, and my old man taught me. The one time my dad forgot what his old man taught him, he blew the window out the side of the house. Never made that mistake again.

 If my old man can forget, anybody can. So always pay close attention.

That's a golden oldie right there. Right up there with tex grebner.

It still amazes me that in this day and age, there are still people who assume that a badge or uniform is an indicator of weapons proficiency. Some of the worst shots I've ever seen were taken by non-civilians. Mind you, that's not meant to be insulting to anyone, it's just that I wouldn't have trusted that guy in the video, and apparently with good reason.

Where's Wes Studi when you need him?

That door was obviously made in Tennessee.

Any who, are there any levergun lovers here?

My grandpap on my mom's side had a Winchester Model 1887. I wanted that. My uncle stole it from his estate and sold it.

I'm more of an AR-15 or handgun guy. But I got a Remmington 870 Tactical shotgun for home defense. Customized with after market magpul mods.

I used to run a model 65 in 357 and a Mossberg persuader. Full length mag tube, 7+1, pistol grip and heat shield from the factory. I ditched the pistol grip and installed a Phoenix collapsible stock. Switched that out for a raptor grip then sold the thing cause I didn't trust the polymer trigger assembly.

I prefer double action magnum caliber revolvers backed with a good centerfire rifle. Right now I run an old marlin 336 in 30-30, pre buyout so its still got the quality. Found it sitting somewhere getting ignored, thank god, I'd wager it was one of the last ones around. Bought it brand new on the spot. Haven't seen another one since, not even used. But I only break that out for serious trouble.

Alongside that I switched my magnum out to a Ruger GP100 in 357 last year. Stainless steel with the 4.2" barrel. Built like a German tank and 100% American made. Got it sitting here next to me.

Nice.

My cousin used to have a Chinese AK in .223, that thing was pretty fun. We'd go out and blast away at this old shed with it and his 41 magnum. Now he just owns an old buckmark and a ruger p-series 9mm.

First gun I ever learned to shoot on was a 1979 Remington wingmaster pump. Thing was mint, only had like 20 shells put through it at the time. Pure craftsmanship from front to back.

I don't shoot as much recreationally as I used to. But I usually turn to the 10/22 carbine for that. Ruger nailed it with those bx25's.

Now, if they'd just come out with a .40 version of their pc carbine, that might change. Because I love me some .40 s&w
