45 ACP Springfield XDS



.45 ACP Springfield XDS

So I’m sitting here with a piece of history from the latter half of the 20th century in one hand and a modern piece of technology in the other. A Colt DS-II, the final and arguably most perfected version of the Colt Detective Special, which in 1926 established the “snub-nose.38 Special” as a pocket-sized defence revolver, is held in my right hand. This one was made in the later part of the 1990s. It weights 23.5 ounces empty and can accommodate six rounds of.38 Special ammo. Its cylinder has a thickness of over 1.4 inches.

A Springfield Armory XDS semi-automatic pistol is to my left. Due to its lightweight polymer frame, it weighs only 21.5 ounces unloaded and is noticeably smaller overall than that revolver with the traditional lines, both in length and height. Two five-round “concealment magazines” with flush bottoms are included with the handgun, and a seven-round extended magazine with a spacer is also offered for sale. At its broadest point, it is just one bare inch thick.

Six extra rounds can be put into the old revolver.

With a speedloader, which is a tad cumbersome to carry and hide, 38 rounds may be loaded relatively quickly. The new auto’s magazines will be flatter and more comfortable to conceal than speedloaders, and it can be reloaded with seven extra.45 ACP rounds more quickly than the revolver can. If necessary, the gun can be discharged by pressing it firmly on a would-be murderer’s body. The same is true for this specific autopistol but not for many others.

What is superior? I recall the day in the past when I first discovered how much I could carry. 38 in spots where I was unable to conceal a large. I shout back at my younger self, “Is this a trick question?” at the age of 45.

Gun Specifics

Introducing the Springfield Armory XDS, which when it debuted in January 2012, revolutionised the world of concealed carry. The majority of the XD handgun characteristics that we’ve come to expect are present. One is the practical loaded-chamber indication, which, when a torpedo is in the launch tube, rises like a shark fin on top of the slide. In the dark, it’s simple and comforting to feel that way. There is also the grip safety. There are several benefits to this that many people overlook. Due to a too-narrow safety strap or the drawstring of a warm-up jacket becoming trapped within the triggerguard and pressing the trigger to the rear when the gun was placed in, people have accidentally shot themselves while wearing a holster. However, if your pistol has a grip safety, like any of the XD firearms, it won’t fire as long as you holster using the technique I’ve recommended since the 1970s: place your thumb on the slide’s back or the hammer of a hammer-fired pistol.

It should be emphasised that as the pistol encounters resistance while being holstered, the shooter should ideally sense something is off. This is due to the fact that even with the thumb removed during holstering and the grip safety safely extended, the web of the hand will depress that grip safety the next time the shooter goes to draw, and if the strap or other obstruction is still holding the trigger back, there will be a nasty, muffled “boom.” Grip safeties generally operate in this manner, whether they are on an XD or a 1911 pistol. However, it’s obvious that this is a situation in which a grip safety might be “A Good Thing” rather than the concession to liability-conscious lawyers that some people seem to think it is.

On this one, the ambidextrous magazine release from the larger XD pistols is still present. Because of how hard its spring is, even when the outside button accidentally ejects the magazine, you won’t notice it happening. However, regardless of which hand a shooter prefers, they can dump an empty magazine by pulling back on the trigger finger and hitting the button, which they most often find quicker than using their thumb.

The cocking indicator, typically present in the form of a blunt, projecting pin on the back of the slide, is one element we’ve grown accustomed to expecting with XD versions but is absent on this one. I’m accustomed to having it on my other XD pistols, but most firearms do not have it, and I am quite capable of living without it. Fans of XD don’t appear to be raising a clamour of complaints about its departure.

Interesting sites can be found. Fiber optic front, fixed back with a large notch and a few white dots. The front sight had a red unit added, and the box contained spare red and green units in addition to the usual assortment of XD. Gear: mag pouch and holster. Yes, if history is any indication, the fibre optic rods will eventually fail. However, you’ll still be able to aim with the front post, so there’s no need to keep yourself up at night worrying about it. We discovered that the “red dot” of the fibre optic facing the shooter simply leapt out and made sight alignment incredibly quick in any sort of half-decent light.

Both a five-round “concealment magazine” with a flush bottom and a seven-round extended magazine with a spacer are included with the handgun. In addition to giving the hand the feel of a full-size pistol grip, the spacer prevents the extended magazine from overtraveling and jamming the gun when it is jammed in forcefully during an emergency reload. Any of the short-butt subcompact autopistols have the potential to cause the spacer to pinch the heel of your hand when you slap it in rapidly.

The dustcover has a light rail that the shooter can use to attach one of the newest models of gun-mounted mini-lights. The sliding stop is of the customary “left-side-only” XD design. To avoid “shooter mistake” from accidentally jamming the slide open at the worst possible time midway through a magazine, the frame is contoured to protect it from upward thumb pressure. On the larger XD versions, this functions as intended, and it does so on this model as well. No one on the test team has unintentionally locked the slide open.

In comparison to other XD series pistols, the trigger on the XDS featured more “drag” during the initial stage of its pull. By the time the finger found resistance and you began actually squeezing the shot off, that had been resolved. With more and more shots, even the first, light part of the press began to smooth out.

When measured at the bottom tip, or toe, of the trigger, the pull weight on this pivoting trigger averaged 7.68 pounds. Pull weight averaged only a little bit greater, 7.37 pounds, when measured from the centre. Although I couldn’t quite reach the joint with my trigger finger for greater leverage, it didn’t seem heavy when shooting, even at high speeds.

The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol



The Nighthawk TRS Comp Pistol

The new TRS Comp pistol from Nighthawk Custom is a full-sized, government frame 9mm double stack built around a match grade barrel and a monolithic slide. It’s built to compete and starts at $4,599.

The TRS Comp comes standard with a recon rail under the barrel and a dimpled rear cocking design that offers ample traction when racking the slide. It also sports unique dimpled frame and slide textures that match the grip pattern.

Integrated Compensator

The TRS Comp is Nighthawk Custom’s first full-size pistol designed around a double stack frame. It features a 17+1 capacity and incorporates Nighthawk’s Fire Hawk compensator, which boasts a precision-designed port that reduces muzzle flip for quicker follow up shots.

This model also features a unique dimpling texture found throughout the slide and grip, which provides ample grip while being snag-free during holstering. The TRS Comp uses a 14K gold bead front sight that does an excellent job catching light, coupled with a Heinie Ledge Black rear sight for quick target acquisition.

The pistol also features Nighthawk Customs’ Interchangeable Optic System (IOS), which is a dedicated dovetail machined onto the slide and allows for optic mounting with adapters. This system allows for an interchangeable series of sight options to quickly switch rear sights in a matter of seconds.

Interchangeable Optic System

Nighthawk Custom’s Interchangeable Optic System allows a user to switch from a plate with a traditional rear sight to a red-dot optic in seconds. This feature is especially beneficial for concealed-carry practitioners who want to train with a red-dot but still carry a traditional rear sight.

Nighthawk’s unique IOS system involves milling the top rear section of their slide to interface with an interchangeable series of sight options, including a Trijicon RMR and other red-dot sights. This low-profile system also incorporates a suppressor-height rear sight as a backup to the optic’s front sight.

The TRS Comp features a match grade 5.00′′ barrel on a government sized frame with a monolithic slide, a full-length dust cover and an integrated single-port compensator. This combination reduces muzzle flip and delivers faster follow-up shots on the range, a must-have for competitive shooters.

The TRS Comp is finished in black nitride for a sleek, durable look. The lightweight aluminum trigger possesses a serrated flat face and a gold bead front sight does an excellent job catching light, providing quick target acquisition. A Heinie Ledge Black rear sight completes the package.

Match Grade Barrel

One of the most important features of any match pistol is a properly fitted barrel. A true match grade barrel will have zero play in the muzzle or at the hood, and it should glide into battery smoothly without any drag or snag on the slide.

This is achieved by carefully fitting the barrel to all of the chamber hood contact surfaces and the lower locking lug. Once this is done it will have a true target fit and shoot groups that rival a 1911 handgun.

The TRS Comp is the first Nighthawk Custom model to be designed around a double stack frame, offering 17+1 capacity and using their integrated compensator, the fire hawk. The compensator has a precision port that reduces muzzle flip and helps shooters stay on target for follow up shots.

Unique Dimpled Texture

The TRS Comp is the newest addition to Nighthawk’s line up. It is a high-end double stack 1911 that packs a 17+1 punch, as well as a lot of style and class. It also happens to be the most accurate and durable gun in its caliber. It also comes in a variety of colors and finishes, from matte black to high-shine chromium. Its crown jewel is the aforementioned patented integrated compensator, which may be the best thing to happen to your sidearm in years. It is a real head turner, especially for those who don’t usually opt for the sexy gun. The aforementioned gizmo is accompanied by a precision designed port in the rear of the slide that reduces muzzle flip without sacrificing a hefty amount of power. The aforementioned gizmo features a matching name badge aft of the slide, as well as a match-grade 5″ barrel and a full-length dust cover with accompanying nifty-fun accessory rail.

AGP Arms PC Charger Brace



AGP Arms PC Charger Brace

The PC Charger is a pistol chambered in 9mm, and it can take Glock magazines. It is very popular and has become more of a sought-after gun than the original carbine.

Many owners of the PC Charger equip it with a brace to give it stability. This makes it a lot more shootable.

Ruger PC Charger

Ruger’s PC Charger is a pistol-caliber carbine (PCC) that combines the fun and utility of an AR style pistol with the reliability and accuracy of a high capacity AR. Designed to take both Ruger Security 9 and Glock magazines, the PC Charger is a highly customizable weapon that makes a great range gun or home defense tool.

Adding a brace to the PC Charger increases its stability and makes it more shootable. The brace can be attached to the MIL STD 1913 rail on the back of the pistol.

The SB Tactical FS1913 Brace is one of the best PC Charger braces available today. It is made of a polymer material that offers quick deployment and a lightweight profile.

This brace is perfect for a shooter who is new to pistol braces, and is looking for a compact and inexpensive option. It is also a good choice for people who are already familiar with the design and use of a buffer tube.

AGP Arms

The AGP Arms brace kit for the Ruger PC Charger is the best way to upgrade the standard stock and barrel. The brace is the logical extension of AGP’s acclaimed pistol grip Gen 2 stock and handguard, allowing users to customize their pc charger to their own specifications. The brace is the brainchild of a dedicated team of military and law enforcement personnel, many of whom have been in the trenches for longer than most of us will ever know. Featuring a modern twist on a classic design, the brace is an understated delight. Its most prominent feature is a cleverly engineered gearbox that enables the user to rotate the entire gun by hand, and then lock it into place using a single pin. The aforementioned pin is mounted in the rear of the gun, where it is tucked under a protective cover for safekeeping. In keeping with the aforementioned design, the brace is also anodized black for a look you can be proud of.

SB Tactical

SB Tactical is the inventor of pistol stabilizing braces. They were started in 2012 by Army veteran Alex Bosco after he designed a brace for his disabled friend so he could continue to shoot.

SB Tactical was the first to introduce adjustable pistol stabilizing braces. This was a big win for the industry and gun owners alike.

After getting pre approval from the ATF, they began selling pistol braces for AR/AK style firearms, CZ Scorpions, H&K MP5 designs, 1913 rails, and more.

The SBA3 is one of the best pistol braces on the market and offers 5-position adjustable adjustment, ambidextrous QD sling attachment points, and a Velcro strap to connect to your arm for one-handed shooting.

The SBA4 is another great choice and offers a sturdy M4-style strut, 5-position adjustable, and an integral QD sling socket. This is an excellent option for a Ruger PC Charger gun with a Glock drum, but it also works well on any pistol without a buffer tube.

Midwest Industries

Midwest Industries is a family owned and operated company that manufactures quality parts, uppers, lowers, rails, barrels, furniture and muzzle devices for AR platforms and many other firearms. They also have a number of innovative products and services that make them a great choice for those looking to upgrade their firearms.

Probably the most useful item that they manufacture is their Combat Rail Handguard in hard coat anodized 6061 aluminum. It features eight functional M-LOK slots and two anti-rotation sling swivels. Its hefty price tag might be a turn off, but its high performance and robust construction is well worth the outlay.

What you might not have known is that they also make the pc charger brace aka the FS1913. Basically the same as the name aforementioned but a lot more durable and the brace actually folds to a compact size for easy transport. They even include a nice looking sling with an integrated bottle opener to boot.

Mini Mamba – A YouTube Star With a Net Worth of $1-5 Million



Mini Mamba

Mini Mamba is a famous YouTube Star who has earned a fortune as a professional. He has a net worth of $1-5 Million at the age of 11 years old.

Mambas are venomous snakes of the family Elapidae, which also includes coral snakes and cobras. They live throughout sub-Saharan Africa.

Black mamba

Black mambas are venomous snakes that are found in Africa. They can grow to up to 14 feet in length and are one of the longest venomous snakes in the world.

They are very fast and aggressive, and their venom is particularly deadly for humans. It takes only about 20 minutes for a bite from a black mamba to kill a person.

They live in grassland, savanna and rocky slopes of southern and eastern Africa. They are primarily diurnal and prey on small rodents. They have excellent vision and a highly developed sense of smell.

Green mamba

Green mambas are found in coastal areas of eastern Africa including Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania and South Africa. These snakes are venomous, which makes them extremely dangerous to humans.

They are a diurnal species, which means they are active during the day. They also spend a great deal of time in the trees and rainforests of western Africa, where they live amongst the forest canopy and thickets.

This snake preys on birds, lizards and small mammals. Its venom isn’t as powerful as the venom of the black mamba or the red mamba, but it can still kill.

Green mambas breed during the rainy season. Females lay eggs, which hatch in about 10-12 weeks. Males seek out and compete for females by following a scent trail or by wrestling or dancing. These combats aren’t biting, but rather a way for the two snakes to establish dominance over each other.

Red mamba

The red mamba is a species of snake that lives in Africa. It is related to the black mamba and can be found in various countries throughout the continent.

It is a medium-sized snake that can grow to be 2 m long. They are mainly found in tree hollows and termite mounds.

They are very venomous and kill their prey quickly. Their venom is highly toxic and can affect the breathing, heart and muscle function of the victim.

They can also paralyze their prey, which they then swallow. They feed primarily on birds and small mammals.

Yellow mamba

The mamba is an African snake. There are four species: black mamba, green mamba, red mamba and yellow mamba.

The Eastern green mamba (Dendroaspis angusticeps), formerly known as the white-mouthed mamba, is a venomous snake that lives in coastal regions of East Africa. It is found from Kenya south through Tanzania, Malawi, and eastern Zambia.

The eastern green mamba is a shy snake that avoids humans when possible and only strikes if provoked or cornered. Its habitat is fragmented in parts of its range and it is listed as Vulnerable by South Africa due to habitat destruction and deforestation.

Blue mamba

Mambas are notorious for their speed and aggression, and they come in a wide variety of species. They are a common sight in Africa’s rainforests, and all have deadly venom.

Of the four types of mambas, the most venomous and dangerous is the black mamba. Known for its lightning-fast speed, erratic behavior, and painful bite, it can strike multiple times in a matter of seconds.

Its venom is highly neurotoxic and cardiotoxic, with fasciculins present to paralyze the muscles of a bite victim. The venom can kill a victim within hours of a bite.
