  1. S&W Recalls M&P12 Shotguns After 2 Cracked Barrels

    Any M&P12 shotgun built prior to last week (10/15/21) needs to be returned to Smith & Wesson ASAP: https://www.ezgun.net/pub/media/rebates/incentives/Recall-MP12Shotguns-RecallNotice2021.pdf

  3. Speer Gold Dot Self Defense Ammo?

    Clearing the chamber to store the gun, then placing the same round on top of the stack and re-chambering it over and over can definitely produce a reduced-length cartridge and possibly result in a pressure spike when it's fired
  4. What's your favorite .22 LR rifle? (Non semi auto)

    Yes, pump action, tube magazine and takedown, the receiver resembles the Winchester 92 and 94 shape. It's deep in the safe, but I'll try to get a pic one of these days. Saw another one posted above in this thread. I guess they were popular back in the day.

  8. What rifle ammo are you using for taking deer?

  9. What rifle ammo are you using for taking deer?

    Every ammo company has cartridges designed for taking specific-sized animals, .30-06 being one of the most popular. If you can find a few different brands with a deer on the label (good luck), see how they hit the target at the range. Many of the ammo producers are loading premium bullets from...
