The CZ and Vudoo are different animals, and are priced accordingly. The CZ is a Czech mass produced factory rifle that is,in my opinion, an excellent value. I own several and enjoy them all, like...

CAI is an importer -- I have two Brno 2's that are stamped that way -- kind of like a dot-matrix imprint on the barrel. When they bring firearms into the U.S. they have to stamp them by law. In my...

Nikon knows their way around lens design and manufacture. I have several. The glass is snappy, sharp and plenty of contrast. No fringing or other common aberrations. Excellent value for the...

For centerfire FTF's I would look at 1) ammo quality, 2) firing pin protrusion, 3) headspace.

Yeah, I got a similar feed issue with the 527 in .17 Hornet. The rounds fit in the mag fine, but feeding is rough and the "finger on the bolt" trick is definitely a thing. I guess I imagine the...

I hope to be able to answer that question before the end of the year. Waiting. . . .waiting. In general though, my sense is that supressors work best on subsonic rounds, which the Hornet is not. ...

Thanks for that. Yup, you're right, and that's good advice. And there is no way I'd trust my family's defense to any untested/untried system. But you have to start somewhere. So, I go about this...

Shotgun ignorant. What does RFC like for home defense?

I have only shot a shotgun twice in my life. Once as a kid and once last month. Let's just say I have more ballast now than I did as a kid. :) Kinda like a Weeble. I wobble, but don't fall down.
