Re: What do you consider the best Self Defense round and why

What is it about the ss192 that makes it a good SD round?

Re: What do you consider the best Self Defense round and why

In for info. but I would think that it would be a round that would take advantage of the high velocity that the FsN is capable of.

Elite Ammunition being Scalped on Gunbroker

I am seeing quite a bit of Elite Ammunition on Gunbroker recently being scalped like Eagles concert tickets. I would like to know if any of it is some of the ammo that just sold out in about 90 minutes from Elite's website or if its old stock that a bunch of people just decided to sell for outrageou...

Re: Elite Ammo available...nope

Re: Had a Littlee Troube With My Trigger at the Range

Never tried, but I'd say if it's impacting something, then no . Your toothpick idea sounds good, so long as that doesn't leave any debris. I had a primer get into the trigger group of my AR once, and it would lock the trigger up every now and then, I'd whack it, continue on, and then it would stop....

Thanx...I will do that.

Is it ok to reset the hammer and pull the trigger with the slide off?

Re: Had a Littlee Troube With My Trigger at the Range

As for a blown primer, if that had occurred would the round still have detonated properly and sent down range correctly? Yes. Pierced & blown primers will still fire correctly, the problem occurs on subsequent shots. The primer or piece of the primer gets lodged somewhere & prevents the gun from fi...

Re: Had a Littlee Troube With My Trigger at the Range

I'm with Rapier, sounds like something got in there. Maybe a blown primer, some other debris, an anvil? I'd take it out of service as a carry/HD gun if that's what it is until you've got some more rounds through it to verify that everything is good. If you pull the slide off, you can watch the inte...

Re: Had a Littlee Troube With My Trigger at the Range

First guess, some kind of debris got lodged in the frame which prevented the trigger from actuating. Did you recover the brass? Any chance it was a blown primer? No...I re-chambered the same round after giving the side of the gun a few jars with my hand and it fired just fine as did the rest of the...

Had a Little Troube With My Trigger at the Range

I was having some fun two days ago with the FsN at the range and mid mag I pulled the trigger only have it move just a little bit. At first I thought I had a jam of some type so I dropped the mag and pulled the slide bake a bit only to find the round sitting in the chamber with no other rounds jammi...

Re: Bad SS197 ammo

Pure and simple Fiocchi has ZERO QA / QC. I'm gonna have to go ahead and disagree with that. Referencing BARFCOMM as your source doesn't help your case either. Over the last four decades I've fired tens of thousands of rounds (quite a bit of it on full auto) the ONLY bad ammo I've EVER encountered ...

Re: Different between bullets

ewetstone As I already said, I live in Tbilisi, Georgia. My friends bought Five-Seven for me in our city, guns shop. There sold any weapon, but the price is expensive Got it. I was just curious if there were gun stores in your city. Do they carry any US made 1911's like Kimber or Springfiled or Colt?
