iPlan to get Speer gold Dot short brl and Golden Saber + P. Going to stay around 124 grain bullets and not venture into the 147 gr range until I can do some more testing. A lot of good reports, lately, on the newer 147 gr 9MM ammo.

Gold Dot is a reliable standard that a lot of organizations use. The Golden Saber might have too much of a hollow point cavity to run against heavy clothing, but understand that this is more speculation and hypothesizing than not. Look also at anything with the Barnes bullet on it--what I see with a very quick look is TAC-XPD and VOR-TX, but I know there are other brands that use them.

Excellent. There are still times when it's best to party like it's 1869, but nowadays that extra capacity in the first load can be much more comforting in general.

Do research on recovery from exercise, pop pop. The gains are made in between the exercise periods, not during them. And there is a lot that can be done to enhance that gain by properly managing what you do in the in-between times, especially with sleep.

Handguns & Holsters / M P 2.0 9 C
« Last post by pop pop on January 04, 2018, 02:36:13 PM »
I decided to purchase a new M P 2.0 9 C pistol for Christmas. I want to work this pistol in my concealed carry plan. For sure in my church carry. I ordered a IWB Cross Bread Super Tuck with the combat cut leather yesterday. 

I also ordered an Aker Flatsider belt slid OWB holster for the MP 2.0 9C this afternoon. Local gun store only had a Fobus kydex that would fit the 2.0. Should be in the carry business soon.

I have already had the pistol out shooting, but the weather has gone far south on me. Been in the low 1 digits for the past 3 mornings, but saying some moderation soon.

I really like the way it points and feels in my hand. I need to ring it out to make sure it is reliable. Also need to train with it because I have shot nothing but revolvers for the last 3 years.

I also joined a Wellness Center, on bone Dr's advice, to strengthen my knees for the next 2 months. Knee surgery, on left knee, set for March 5th, if not sooner. I asked saw bones to move my date up if he could. Will be lifting weights, in earnest, for the next 2 months to strengthen my knees till surgery time. Started today, as I worked out for 45 min. Did both cardio and weight training. Feel like a limp dishrag.

Life goes on but am, excited about the new 9 MM compact pistol. It has a 4" brl, holds 15 + 1 rounds, and a real good size frame for concealed carry. I don't like mouse guns!

I still intend to weak side pocket carry my 7 shot 357 mag snubbie revolver for back up. Will retire my S/W 642 38 Spl. Figured I may need a few more rounds on hand should I be "forced into" a bad situation.

I have a Ruger 40 caliber carbine I purchased used. It looks just like the 9 MM pictured in the article about the 9 MM carbine. I got it from  a sheriff deputy who had a massive heart attack years ago, and had to sell the carbine for extra money. The deputy carried a Ruger pistol which took the same ammo and magazine that the carbine took. All deputies were issued this combination in our county at the time I came upon this one. They have since gone to the Glocks. 

I have experienced a lot of fun shooting the carbine. It is very accurate out to 50 yards, as it is not scoped. I have 3, 20 round magazines for it. I would guess the 9 MM will be just as good as my 40 cal, but much cheaper to shoot. 

I have always liked pistol caliber carbines. I even purchased a Henry lever gun in 38 Spl/357 Mag caliber last year. We had it out at Thanksgiving and my family liked the lever gun.  It is a sweet gun. My EDC is a 357 mag revolver, however I am working a newly purchased  M P 2.0 9 C into my daily carry routine. Have already put 100 rounds through it as break in. Going to take it apart and clean and lube and run about 500 more rounds through it to make sure it is dependable for concealed carry. Go to get me some self defense ammo for it. Plan to get Speer gold Dot short brl and Golden Saber + P. Going to stay around 124 grain bullets and not venture into the 147 gr range until I can do some more testing. A lot of good reports, lately, on the newer 147 gr 9MM ammo. 

Any ammo recommendations would be appreciated. By the way I like the 2.0 because it points well and the grip is not too fat for my medium sized hands. Grandson really liked it as well.

What was that idiot thinking!!! / Re: Smart Gun Technology

And why do they call it a “smart gun”, could this just be a way for the liberals to take control of us? Make us think we have our constitutional rights, but put these so called smart guns that are not smart!

I have since learned that changing out the magazine well allows the Ruger PC carbine to use Glock 19/17 series magazines.

Read a review and watch a video @ http://www.gunblast.com/Ruger-PCCarbine.htm.
