I went to a gun show today and completely forget to buy beef jerky before I left. I guess I was excited to get this home.









Someone help me out. It's a No 1 mk 3* made in Australia, correct? There were a handful of others in various conditions, but I liked this one with the funky muzzle cap/bayonet lug.

I also saw an $1100.00 SKS today.

I have my dad's un-modded Blackhawk in .30 carbine. It has the finest trigger I've ever pulled on a handgun. I'm not interested in letting Ruger mess that up.
I've seen 3 screw guns that were dropped and landed on the hammer spur and broke out the "safety" notch. It would have fired had there been a round in that chamber. I never carry with 6 rounds in the gun, but suit yourself and do what you want.

I wasn't saying don't leave an empty chamber, I was just pointing out that there is a hammer block of sorts built into the original trigger group.

The ground was pretty hard, the ricochet actually went down range (a few hundred square miles of nothing),

So the buffer tube on an AR pistol can almost be used as a buttstock, but not quite. The ATF has no problems with that?

Is the buffer tuber permanently attached? Or could it be replaced with a buttstock if we didn't have such silly laws?

The best I can find I that it shouldn't get you in trouble because the buffer tube is a necessary part in order for the pistol to function, but is not intended for use as a buttstock.

Picked up an LC9 at the show today, really liking the way it feels in my hand and the way it carries, but gotta shoot it.

Yeah, and I've read about guys putting those rubber ends for canes you pick up at Walgreens on the end of the buffer tubes, to make them a bit bigger. That takes it pretty darn close to a buttstock.

I saw those too.

Some of them showed paperwork from writing into the ATF (or someone) stating it was only installed to prevent the pistol from sliding and falling over in their safe when stored upright and the return letters OKing it.

So

I like mine for what it is designed for- Kinda jumpy but easily controlled. the trigger pull is forever long and hard (DAO safety thing I believe) with a huge amount of slack. Feels really funny when you go back to a 4 lb trigger with minimal slack (easy to fire early).

I can hit a 5 gal bucket at 10-12 yards with 5 shots in about 10 seconds. Not awesome but effective for the little pistol. Can I hit a 6 in target at 20-30 yards? Perhaps, but not likely. Can I hit a man sized chest at SHTF range? Hope not to find out, but can hit a bucket.

Edit- I'd add mine was really stiff the first 50 rounds or so- I'd find some 9mm snap caps to practice the trigger feel

I have an LCP too. LC9 seems to feel just about the same, just bigger. I might be old fashioned, but for a carry gun I do like the fact it has a safety. I know, I am in the minority on that one...

It can be, but it's uncomfortable. The ATF has no problem with the use of the stubby buffer tube. So far.

Can be replaced with stock. Causes a felony if receiver isn't registered as an SBR.
