try a new mag first......or different ammo

I was thinking of the ranch carbine or the one with the detachable mags....bummer. Or was that a Marlin? Hmmm....too many guns to remember!

Bersa BP9ccd vs 'classic' Thunder

Anyone had/used/carried/qualified both of these? I hear enthusiastic support for both/each - some say one, some the other.
http://www.americanrifleman.org/arti...cc-9mm-review/

seems the new trigger assembly is what gets a lot of praise and attention.

a few user/owner comments after this article
http://cheaperthandirt.com/blog/?p=18962

Haven't found a vid comparing the BP9CC to the 9 Thunder, but here's one comparing to the ubiquitous Thunder .380

Thanks for the advice on the Enfield. It looks to be in pretty good shape, at least in the gun broker photos. The numbers on the receiver and bolt match, but it looks like the magazine does not. If I can get it for $250-$275, you'll be seeing some photos posted here in the near future.

If it is in good shape that (I think) is a deal, mine was (i think) more then that. They are quite fun to shoot....I like shooting different stuff. Everyone in his dog has a garand or springfield....but when you show up with a carcano or something everyone looks and comes to see. That is the fun of it.


The good thing about these old rifles now is partizan is making factory ammo for them, and it is not too bad. Another BIG plus is you get good reloadable brass out of the deal. I will buy about 100 rounds (more than enough for a high power match) then just reload them. It works out great.....if you go buy just the brass from somewhere like norma or something it is so expensive. The japanese brass is out of sight....same with the stuff from italy.

Dude, the jean shorts were a much bigger fail. (Though I recognize you might not understand that, being from backwoods TN and all. ) And don't get me started on the socks too.

Am I supposed to not use my teeth when fixing sinkers to a fishing line?

I eat a sandwich, right after putting a worm on the hook too. Something's gonna kill you anyway.

Well, I "pulled the trigger" and ordered one of these little pop guns. Should be delivered next week.



But mine will be blue, not stainless.

The new Ruger deerfield (and the lever action one) has a 4 rd detachable mag too. I have the older model one.
