This is my AR15.  It is a mid-length gas system that I built myself with primarily a Bravo Company upper and a Smith & Wesson lower:

Nice job!  I put a Talon grip on my 5" M&P Pro and it is much better than stock!  I wish I had the courage to break out the soldering iron and stipple myself!

 

I just picked up a new gun for myself, an XDm .45 5.25.  I keep my pistol calibers simple with only .38/.357, 9mm, and .45.  I wanted to add a double stack .45 but wanted something different.  I don't like Glocks so the XD was the natural choice:

^ That XD looks sweet. That's exactly what I want next.

 

I bought this several weeks ago. LCR .38. It's turned out to be a great pocket carry.

That's kind of a sexy revolver.

Ah yes, a lovely union of polymer, aluminum and stainless steel.

 

...while others think it's ugly as sin, tongue.gif

Hmmm?  I was too busy looking at the Hogue grip, cylinder and orange front sight post.  tongue.gif

 

Here's another union of polymer, aluminum and SS.

It's too bad Hong Kong has gun laws and no normal citizens are allowed to own guns. If I were allowed to own one, I would use it responsibly and treat it as it was loaded at all times. I would probably get a M1911 and change everything on it..

How do you like this holster. I tried a couple IWB's for my Glock 19 and never got used to the feel. So I went with a Ruger LCP for CCW.

Sorry for the delayed reply.

 

The Max Tuck is the first and only IWB for my XD9. I've worn it for a couple months all day with great results. I have no fatigue from it. Only the weight of the gun is noticed.

 

Since buying my LCR I haven't carried the XD9 much at work. I've been pocket carrying the LCR but just got a Mr. Softy IWB holster for it to have a second carry option.

 

I have no interest in trying any other IWB holster for the XD9.

So I was watching American Guns and there was a debate about cutting down the barrel of a Tommy Gun yielding increased muzzle velocity.  The Null hypothesis was that cutting down the 18" barrel to 16.5" would yield the increase.  They took the stock barrel and fired it through the traps and got about 805fps.  The barrel was then cut down 1.5" and fired again resulting in around 850fps!  How is this possible?  The only things I can think of are they cut the muzzle brake off when they shortened it or they used a hotter load in the second test fire.  Any thoughts?
