I wanna start running slugs in my mossy 500. Is the increase in range and accuracy of sabot slugs (and buying a rifled barrel) worth it? Or should I stick with rifled slugs, save money, and keep using my smooth barrel.

If you're buying slugs to hunt with because your state doesn't allow rifles (like Delaware), I'd spend the $$ on a good black powder rifle kit instead if slug barrel. That will be more accurate. Especially with a scope.

I'm gonna say something controversial, as I often do, but I really think it's an important point to consider ...

How many times have you used a phrase like "a gun isn't a weapon, it's a tool" or "guns don't kill people" or something along those lines when discussing weapons, particularly with an anti gunner? Have you ever stopped to think what a load of B.S. that is? I think we should be honest with ourselves. Guns are WEAPONS. Yes they may technically be a tool, but their purpose is to kill. While it's true people kill people, not guns, people use guns to kill people.

If someone breaks into my house, my 12 gauge is loaded with 00 buck to kill. I carry a pistol so that if some scumbag tries to harm me or my family, they will get killed.

I never want to have to do that, and I don't want to glorify killing, nor do I want to villify weapons. My point is, we need to be able to accept harsh realities when it comes to the weapons we carry. If you can't accept the fact that your firearm is a tool designed to kill, then I don't think you are ready to have/carry it.

+JD McCay Fair point. Guns are good for a lot of things, and protecting yourself and your family from those who would do you harm - by shooting them if necessary - is one of them. 

Definitely no problem with affirming that.

lmfao! If the G26 doesn't work for someone then they need to go away from glock, it's that simple. On the upside I bet I could use the trigger assembly from the 43 on my 26 and maybe the barrel and recoil spring.

+Malik Kirkland .... on top of that gun smuggling has also reach a epidemic levels in Australia too. This is what they get when the government no longer fears its *Commonwealth subjects when they take away their guns folks. 
*(Australia belongs to the Commonwealth of England, another country that banned most of their firearms)

Holy crap! All the more reason "smart guns" are a terrible idea for anything more than novelty.  Self aiming rifle is hacked to completely miss its target, or hit the wrong target. 
Security researchers Runa Sandvik and Michael Auger can hack into TrackingPoint self-aiming rifles and make the famously accurate guns miss the intended target.

Help...

I really want to buy a 357 sig. I know all the reasons its a bad idea, but I still want one. Somebody please talk me out of it.

Bonus round: my current favorite gun to shoot is a 357 magnum. Going from a magnum to a sig, am I going to be disappointed or pleasantly surprised?

So, I find the content of this article intriguing (and very upsetting) but that's not why I'm posting it. Take a look at who wrote it!! Have you EVER seen a pro-gun article written by the Huffington Post? I know I sure haven't.

+JD McCay Like the majority of these unenforceable gun laws they have introduced over the years, these are "feel good" laws that claim to be proactive , yet in reality are only reactive . So you can be sure that if some one unauthorized to have access to the firearm in the home injuries themselves, the fact that the firearm didn't have a trigger lock and wasn't in the safe, with the key in another safe with the ammunition in another safe, and so on, that those are more charges that can be thrown on...after the fact.
Just the same as the unenforceable "universal background checks" supposedly made to prevent criminals from buying guns from the street. It does nothing to prevent a criminal from buying from another criminal who also has no respect for any law. But you can be sure that if that criminal gets popped for some shooting an innocent bystander and has possession of that gun, they are going to figure out who they purchased the gun from and charge them with breaking the "universal gun law". Again it did nothing to actually prevent the murder of this innocent person.
I saw this news article the other day:
http://kxan.com/2015/06/09/two-dead-in-central-texas-medical-center-shooting/ It's tragic and appears to be a mercy killing/suicide, where an elderly man brought a gun into the hospital.... but the last part is what caught my eye and demonstrates how these "feel good" law people think:

Russell said CTMC is always assessing how to keep their facility secure and will do so again in wake of Tuesday’s shooting.

“We do have signs posted at all our entrances stating state law and hospital policies do not allow handguns on our campus,” said Russell.

Lot of good that sign did.

Anybody pocket carry? And if so, how often do you have to clean lint and debris from your weapon? This is after about three days. The second picture is a piece of straw.

Granted, I've taken my weapon like this and fired it straight from the holster without cleaning it, and have never had a hicccup. But it still bothers me to see it all dirty.

Need help deciding which should be my next rifle. It's gonna be a truck gun, so I need something durable, and versatile, kind of a jack of all trades rifle. Also, I wasn't something with a manual action. 3rd, I'm left handed, so lever actions get plus points.

You know that we're winning the right when HuffPost is having a cow. :)

The Texas state Senate gave preliminary approval Monday to legislation that would allow licensed handgun owners to visibly bear their firearms, in a move that would repeal a 140-year-old open carry ban. The Republican-controlled chamber approved ...

Quite possibly some of the best beer I've ever had. Be prepared to pay a little more, but it's worth it.

Got that great hometown feel you would expect from an old-style general store. Propane prices are one of the cheapest around, too.

Got my jeep washed there. Didn't have enough money to do the full detail, so I can't comment on that. But the wash was great, fast, and thorough.

Went there to use the car wash and vacuum out my car. When the vacuum took my quarters without turning on, I went inside to use the ATM and get some more. The lady behind the counter refunded my quarters without me even having to ask. Great gas station, and they have my business now, even if there are cheaper places around.
