The SCCY CPX-2 is a popular pistol in the lower price range. For 200 bucks, people are able to snatch one of these babies. SCCY makes alot of these guns in house in Florida. They constantly upgrade the components to improve durability, reliability, and quality control. But the question today is if this pistol is the best gun for your money as alot of people have felt?
It has been a while since I last wrote on this blog. Things have been crazy in my personal life and I am finally getting my groove back and getting content out there for my awesome viewers and readers. For today I have a few subjects to cover such as practicing to get your proficiency back on point, reloading lessons, and an update on the SAR9 from Sarsilmaz.
It is a common interest for those wanting to carry concealed to want a compact pistol. Their size is easy to conceal and most of them on the market are pretty easy-going on the recoil. However, it is also a common theme for these people to get sucked into standards that are niche and unnecessary. I want to explore some of these using the firearms displayed in the featured photo. This is not meant to promote or sell any brand or type of pistol, but to help people understand the real story behind these different types of compact and subcompact firearms.
In many of the videos on YouTube, you might notice that the reviewers lay their MRE contents out on a tray as if it is to be a cafeteria meal instead of a field ration. This is quite odd considering that many of these folks actually have used them in the field in the military. My goal is to discuss how you will typically find yourself using an MRE when you use it in the field like in the military. Before I write about this, I think we should start with a bit of a backstory on the history of how the MRE came to be.
In the modern gun world, the evolution of pistols has reached extremes incredibly fast. Todays' generation of shooters have judged pistols like the Sig P239 to be outdated. Merit, history, and capabilities seem to have been pushed aside in favor of capacity and size, as well as weight. It is a generation of extremes that I was a part of for years. Only through experience did I have a realization that perhaps I should question the validity of these views.
What is the importance of accuracy? Well, it depends on what you are trying to do. If you are trying to qualify on a paper target, being able to hit inside a certain area will be good enough. If it is in competition, as long as you skim through and get your hit, it is all good. In combat, connecting with the torso is the name of the game. All of these scenarios could benefit from more precision of course, but perhaps there is a problem with people understanding when they are being accurate and when they are being precise.
The minuteman concept has been a staple of the American way of life since it's development and even prior to that. The concept is that a man can be ready to defend his home, his town, and his freedom at any time by taking up arms and fighting alongside his neighbors. This effectively is the concept behind a militia, with the militia being a more organized unit with a certain task and readiness level. In this segment, I want to discuss the differences in the philosophy and between a militia and the minuteman. I personally think that the differences are important enough.
In this day and age, civil unrest is highly anticipated, which has swelled the ranks of many militias. Unfortunately this has encouraged individuals to consider preparing to fight. I do not like the way that militias go about training, and in fact, I find their methods and ideals to be derpy at best. Alot of these members participate in strictly conventional warfare training and training that does not prepare them for reality. In this article, I merely wanna talk about the kind of loadout that I would find to be respectable and practical, from the perspective of someone who has had to haul ammo and gear in combat. Not to pat myself on the back too much, but I feel that I have enough experience to give solid recommendations for efficiently operating in hostile territory.
There is a constant complaint about full size pistols that they are too large to be carried comfortably or without printing. The Clinger Holsters No-Print-Wonder V2 proves that there are holsters out there that can functionally conceal a full size pistol like the Beretta PX4 Storm. Though I would not classify this holster as the ultimate in comfort, it certainly has made carrying one of my favorite full size pistols easy.
It has been a while since I took the Walther PPS out for some range time. I figured that I might as well give it a shot and see how I perform with it. While I was at it, I figured that it would be a good time to test other products like the Comfort Cling from Clinger Holsters and my preferred carry load, Remington 115 grain JHP. I had fun shooting the pistol, and I found some things that I think are very relevant to share.
