  1. S&W 686 loose grip issue.

    Revolver Discussions
    Hi all, I have recently bought a Smith and Wesson 686 plus (6 inch) last February; which I havent shot yet having the ranges closed because of the Covid situation and all. I have noticed that the frame feels a little loose from the grip. Is that I should be worried about or is that normal...

    New Members Introduction
    I'm new to the gun world but I've done a fair amount of research and I'm pretty set on getting a Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 sport .22 LR. .22 ammo is cheap , and I won't be hunting w the gun just mostly target shooting so it should be a good gun to learn on. Everywhere I've looked online it's got...
  3. Should I go with the Sig P365 or the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 2.0 as my next buy?

    Concealed Carry
    Should I go with the Sig P365 or the Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 2.0 as my next buy? I am in need of a new carry pistol. I have been Concealed carrying a 1911 Government model, and quite frankly, that is becoming annoying (especially in the summer months). I live in Idaho, so I have to bundle-up...
  4. What do you all think about this little lovely chunk of steel the new M&P 380 EZ?

    General Gun Discussion
    Honestly, I thought I was going to have a lot of negative about it since I really don't like 380 auto. But this thing is pretty wicked. What do you all think of it?

    Rifle Discussion
    Hello everyone, was wondering which of these ARs are better for my first AR. Smith & Wesson M&P 15 Sport II or Ruger AR 556? I read plenty of reviews and both seem to be in a deadlock (like me right now). Thanks in advance folks!

    Collectors Corner
    Here is my Smith & Wesson British Service Revolver. If I've got the moniker right it's a S&W Model of 1905 4th Change. Basically, it's a Victory Model without the V-serial number. It's chambered for .38 s&w and it's great shooter with little recoil. The sights are very small, but it seems...

    Firearm Accessories
    So I'm trying to find an affordable red dot that I can put on my S&W M&P15 Sport. I am really leaning toward the Vortex Sparc II, but I wanted other suggestions before the purchase. Any other better options for under $250? Let me know thanks!

  11. Glock 22 Conversion Kits on Sigma SW40VE

    Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    I know they do not make a 22lr conversion kit for the sigmas but I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the possibility of using one of the many 22lr conversion kits for Glock on the SW40VE. I know that the SW40VE is similar in most respects to the Glock 23 so I figured I would see if...
