You should change the title to "gun thoughts". I only see "random thoughts" and go in, then go OH NO. I NEED TO GET THE HELL OUT OF HERE. I'M GONNA BUY MORE GUNS IF I READ THE POSTS IN HERE

I need to keep my ass out of this forum. Otherwise, I'll be broke.

I have an extra Bushy 20" Hbar that I rarely shoot. Should I wait for a 20" 450BM barrel from Franklin to come in stock and rebarrel it, order a 24" .223 barrel, trade it +$400 for a Bushy 24" varminter, try to sell and buy the Varminter, or try to sell and buy an Ar10?

Problem is getting a barrel. Franklin has been OOS FOREVER!. This would be an easy swap, and not cost much. I want a rifle length gas system, and apparently Franklin is the only one. 450 IMO is the best big bore option, and I will build one eventually.

If you want to remove the safety from yours, go for it, but that's not in the cards for me.
And it made zero difference.....a lawyer will attempt any angle, doesn't mean it works.

Arguments aside, I'm still curious why you are changing it though?

That I would agree with, which makes me wonder why the hell they put it there in the first place.

Figures. Whenever I see crap like that on a gun when it's unnecessary is to appease a lawyer or politician.

Much cheaper to manufacture one gun to fit all then to have separate models like they did with the rest of the M&P line-up.

And now the Shield is the only M&P that will remain on the California "not unsafe" handgun list. All the rest of the M&P line is going to expire from the list this year.

Fun acreage fact time.

43,560 square feet makes an acre, or roughly 208 feet squared.

10 square acres measures 660 x 660 feet.

40 square acres forms a sixteenth section, 1320 x 1320 feet (quarter mile square).

160 square acres forms a quarter section, 2,640 x 2,640 feet (half mile square).

640 square acres forms a section, 5,280 x 5,280 feet (one mile square).

6 square miles, 36 sections, 23,040 acres, 1,003,622,400 square feet, forms a traditional township.

That is all, back to work for me.

Any thoughts on this pistol? Anyone own one or know anyone that has? I can get one for $515 local just wondering if it's worth the headache of owning a Taurus revolver.

I would pass in favor of the new Ruger GP100 Match Champion or a S&W 686.

Ive already seen Match Champions priced right about what you would be paying for that Taurus...

Ive been looking at the 686 also. I have a Ruger blackhawk and im looking to upgrade to something more modern with double action, shorter barrel and speedloading capabilities.
