Didn't want to burst his bubble....and the fact it ISN'T a 1911 so is moot for this conversation.

I've done it. Follow the directions and it's fine.

Basic newbie question.

I bought a 9mm S&W automatic today. Nice deal, with a ballistic nylon holster, and 50 rounds, about $400 including tax.

My first real, useable pistol. Seems like a heavy bugger. If I put the holster and pistol on my belt, my pants fall down!

I guess I need to wear a second belt? (That's the newbie question.)

Get a thicker "gun belt".

It'll help prevent the sag.

Ballistic nylon holsters are cheap, but I suggest in investing in a better one. Like a hybrid style.

The loops are not big enough to handle the belt doubled up if your belt tail is too long.

Taking the kit to Gunsite Saturday for a CCW class .

Here is a 15% discount coupon for X-concealment: GT1115
Thanks for the coupon! Have fun at Gunsite.

Ain't that the truth! Great little .22 handgun, but taking it apart to put in a few "slicked up" trigger parts had me cursing! I'll never do that again! If I need to deep clean the thing, I'll take off the grips and spray it down with Pro Tech, then blow it out with my air compressor and hit it with some Rem Oil.

The 13 YO boy built this (with some coaching) in the garage Sat afternoon- (sorry, no "Before" pics, just "after.")

Intended for rimfire stuff- it had some dowels for tennis balls stuck on, cans, lots of golf tees for balls and paintballs- an old 1/4 metal plate I found was wired up on the left-


Had it all set up at at 35-40 yards, and (paintballs neatly placed)- and the dipstick unloads the first round at the steel plate- with his .243 .



Note the hole, stage right - all the neatly lined up painballs scattered like chickens (at a public hillside range, so we have to wait for a while to call a halt to the action to reset)

The rest of the paint was neatly (and intentionally) peeled off with 38gr HP winchester stuff.

Not bad for a 6mm 100 spire point boat tail, Hogdon BL-C(2)- the exit wound


Not a bad evening.

Those little "shooting gallery" things are fun to build, and you don't need a lot of metal to stop a 22. We made swingers out of pop cans, soup cans and the like, and also a little deal that would hold clays. it is amazing the amount of hits you can put on a clay with a 22....you can even shoot the center out of the thing and leave the outside still there....they are great fun and cheap to shoot.

Reminds me that I need to buy another big box of .22.
Your Marlin 60 has a better scope than mine. What is it?

Agreed, and a better holster with better belt retention will help the saggy pants part as does the thicker belt that fits the belt loops on the holster, which on a good holster have adjustments for belt width. Or get a pancake style leather holster and be done with the pants sliding down bit.

I'd be surprised if one side of that setup would be useful beyond maybe 15 yards. Unless the manufacturer spent an incredible amount of time those two barrels will point in different directions so you'd only be able to get the site lined up with one side or the other.

Well, when the idea for the rig is to spray and pray at 15m I doubt that has any effect on it's "accuracy". I am willing to bet they have a cross point of about 50m out max, probably 25~30m out. All doubles have a cross point and depending on weapon, that might be close or at longer range.
