I really do want a P7. What do I need to look for and also avoid?

Don't forget that it was Rmoney that made the Assault weapon ban permanent in Mass.

B) someone started a rumor about serial numbers on bullets


Everyone calm down, and buy normal amounts of shit... we screw ourselves when we drive up prices artificially based on bogus horseshit.

Just FYI
This.

Here some pics.
Sweet side-by-side. Very very nice. I am presently in the market for one. Back when I was about 15 my dad bought me a really nice used Win. Model 21. Amazing gun, I shot it for years, decades, and still have it. It's a safe queen now as they are collectible and hard-to-come-by.

I love the wide sighting plane of a SxS, find it better (for me) for wing shooting or clay birds than a single barrel or OU. I realize that most prefer the latter, but that's what I grew up with and what feels natural to me. Plus there's a satisfying Elmer Fudd vibe to a SxS.

I was looking recently at the CZ Bobwhite and Ringneck. I'll probably get one of those sometime in the not-too-distant future, although am keeping my eyes open for other options too. Great find!

Yeah, I carry my LCP more than anything else because its so easy to slip in a front pocket. Holy crap though, is it hard to hit anything with. Only gun I've ever bought and the first mag I shot out of it was spread beginner style

I have the Bobwhite, 20g. It's very nice and I think you'd like owning one. edited to add: I have the shorter 26" and it swings well; although I think the 28" would be just as nice.

To the poster with the Mossberg, where is it manufactured? I'm assuming Turkey?

Question Mag Release?

Like you I very often carry the LCP in a pocket, particularly when wearing shorts (and no belt for a holster). I often find that at some point I have released the mag. This happens often enough that I now automatically tap on the butt whenever it is removed from the pocket to seat the mag and prevent the gun from being a single shot. have you found this to be a problem as well? I am thinking that I will thin down the release button figuring that a slower reload after 6 beats the heck out of having the mag drop after one but haven't tried it yet.

The A1 is made in CT, the Onyx Turkey.
The details and finish of the Onyx are of GREAT craftsmanship!

It hasn't happened to me, but the desantis pocket holster I carry it in covers the mag release as well.

It is not political, to ask fellow gun owners to stop spreading false panic on the web and thus driving prices through the roof for all of us. If we all added up the extra $$ we have spent on ammo over last few years relative to where prices SHOULD be, all over panic with no basis, it would be a staggering sum.

The Turkish shotguns I've seen have been very nice. My CZ Bobwhite is higher quality than I would expect for the price. I expected the Onyx was the same, a Turkish gun of high quality.
