  1. General Gun Discussion
    I remember when my high school friend turned 18 and purchased his first gun (Mosin Nagant 91-30). Two years later my 18th birthday came and my friend sold me his first Mosin Nagant for $80. To this day I still have that Mosin and by far my favorite rifle in my collect.
  2. Revolver Discussions
    Hello. I have a smith and wesson revolver double action 2". I don't have any paperwork or id for this gun. I was looking for some help to figure out what it is. The markings on the bottom of the handle between the wood grips are 5D30789. It says .38 S&W. spl on the barrel. Made in USA marcas...
  3. General Gunsmithing
    So my P80 build has gone relatively smooth, just cutting, filing, and sanding. But I've run into a literal snag with the U cut out on the frame and the recoil spring. When I got to put the slide on it feels like the recoil spring assembly is getting caught in the U. Should the assembly move...

    Hi, I have pair of these pistols that I inherited. I think they are from 17th century but I am not sure. Can someone help me put them in the right place?
  5. Hunting, Archery, Camping, & Others
    A few friends at work were talking about bears in the woods and it got me thinking: what's the smallest handgun caliber you'd trust to take down a bear (say a black bear, a brown bear, and a grizzly) in a self defense situation? I always figured that a .44 Magnum would do the trick for all...
  6. Firearm Accessories
    I just bought my first pistol (finally) and am looking to get it an open holster. I think I want to get a dropleg holster as this will work better with my plate carrier, but wanted to see if anyone had an opinion on standard belt holsters instead. EDIT: The pistol is a S&W 686 Plus, I don't...
  7. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    Buying my first handgun today. I really havent heard much bad about the Taurus PT1911, so I am thinking about going and picking one up today. Academy has them for $500, so I figured why not. Does anyone have any experience with the gun that can shed some light on the quality and if its a bad...
  8. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    Hi! I am looking to buy my first "serious" gun. I have CZ P-09 which in my country you can buy for 500-600$. It's good for a first gun and shooting for fun but it's not even close a competition gun. I want the gun to be 9mm, quite heavy 0.8kg + and what i look most in the gun is pure accuracy...
  9. General Gun Discussion
    Hello! New to the forum. I have been shooting for two months. I have been shooting with gun club pistols because i didn't want to rush with buying a gun because i was still seeing if shooting is for me (if i am good and if i want to spend money on this thing). I am getting quite good and i am...
  10. General Gun Discussion
    I have heard from multiple sources that using a silencer on a gun, lowers the speed of the bullet or the range by a few meters. I would like to someone more experienced with guns confirm/disconfirm this. Mainly talking about semi-automatic rifles and pistols
  11. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    Hi, My dad recently gave me this Colt Woodsman .22. This was my Grandfather’s . We believe it is pre-1930. The production number is: 35336. The pistol has not been fired, since late 1950s. It appears to be in great condition. I’m considering selling it, however I don’t know what a reasonable...
  12. Concealed Carry
    This is the first time I've been here and I do not have experience with guns. I may not be posting in the right place (I'm a chick so cut me some slack!). I have a question that is extremely important for me to find an answer to about a Raven Arms .25 caliber, automatic, chrome with a rubber...
  13. Gun Laws - News - Rights
    So I'm 17 years old, have been hunting and shooting for a while now, and would just feel more comfortable during archery season if I could carry a handgun for protection only. Had multiple run ins with bear, but have had a rifle or shotgun each time and had no problems with them being...
  14. Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    As much as people hate this gun, I honestly like it quite a bit. I like the double to single, the heft, and the general design. However, I absolutely despise the safety on it, awkwardly placed and I've heard people have trouble with the safety flipping on in the holster. I hope this isn't a...

  18. Collectors Corner
    I believe it was manufactured around 1906 and made by STAR. The gun has no model or serial number. The only engravings on the pistol are: "STar- MADE IN SPAIN CAL 6.35" left side, (https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1QipN8MI1ZUFosTpbz0i4sgsJL97Ff6wHpOPeZCelE) and "READ OWNERS MANUAL BEFORE...
  19. Collectors Corner
    My father passed a few weeks ago. Along with a few Glocks and hunting rifles, I came across a very old pistol stored in his safe. If anyone could give me a clue about this antique, I would be much appreciated. I tried to Google online, but came up with very little. Thanks so much for your...
  20. General Gun Discussion
    Hey, I am new to this forum and fairly new to firearms in general. I was wondering if you could give me some advice on my next gun purchase. I already have a 12 ga shotgun and .22 rifle. I am split between buying a pistol so that I no longer have to rent one when I go to the range or buying a...
