Surprised that is still on the shelf haha. Here still not seeing anyone unless it's way overpriced at like a pawn shop and even still people are buying it. Luckily got enough ammo for while way before all this. Going to the range Friday to sight in the new muzzleloader tho

I have a P320 V-TAC that I put a Romeo 1 Pro on. About $1,200 into that gun pre pandemic.

I also have a M&P Compact 2.0 that I love as well.

I'll pick the P320 every day, but they arnt in the same price range the way I have them built.

No I bought a CVA Optima V2. Though I have looked at the build kits to do one think it was the hawken flint lock. Seems pretty straight forward everything is predrilled and you just put the parts together. Thought about doing a 35cal smooth bore for small game. Will be a while before I'd do it tho. Fairly new to black powder.

he did all of his from scratch. Bought the barrel and trigger assembly then took a block of curly maple wood and worked it down. this is what he started with https://thumbs.worthpoint.com/...47b42f2b8740da30f7517.jpg and when finished i looked something like this http://namlhunt.com/...4220093/img-8301_orig.jpg He made 3 of them and gave them away to friends.

I had to quit carrying my pistol in my crotch. had too many college chicks following me out of walmart. plus would wear my bunny boots lol they look like size 25.
Loved the old german mauser, have a browning special 20 gauge special addition 1950s magnesium breech, gold trigger, plus some civil war rifles. and my fav is a savage/mossburg 12 gauge with poly chokes. you put the choke on depending on what u are hunting.
I still am not sure what gun to use when I go mushroom hunting.. can someone give me a hint?

Nice. Yeah I was originally looking at the hawken kits. It comes with everything you sand the stock down to fit you better and install all the hardware your self.

The difference between a weapon and a gun, one is for fighting-one is for fun.
It is not the size of either that matters. It's how you use it.

I used to have a mushroom dog if you would find one and show it to him he would find more really good at it, the only problem was before you could pick it he would shred it. I tried several times to get him to stop shredding them but no luck

Use the mossberg 12 gauge with improved cylinder. No close shots tho. Don't want to completely annihilate the shrooms. .22 long rifle would be acceptable too lol

Shot a bunch of guns, it was a close choice between a Glock 45 and Sig p320, but Im gonna go with the Sig. The grip felt better in my hand. Both guns felt really good shooting.

Wifes P365XL came in today, really nice shooting gun. Just bought a P320X on gunbroker, waiting for that to come in.

I really like the x series grips on the sigs.
