    3) Henry .45-70 All-Weather

    It might depend on what they can actually order in, since they don't regularly carry any of these, despite carrying both Henry and one CZ (okay, one CZ 75 compact). I know, all of these are really different, but all are on my "Want To Buy" list. I have my LC9s, but want something closer to my P-07 so both my defense guns feel similar. I don't have anything like the Scorpion in the safe. I have a Henry .44, but it was my dad's rifle and I want something I can take out camping and not feel bad it it shows some character.

    Thoughts?
    Isn't the CZ 2075 Rami a bit small for your sasquatch hands?

      Which RAMI are you looking at? I have the decocker version and it's a great gun.
      Where are we going and why are we in a handbasket?

        I went shooting last friday (150 rounds trough my Shadow, and 120 trough my AR-15). Managed to get the handguard of the AR hot enough that it was more than uncomfortable to hold. Need to buy some BCM M-Lok grip panels.

        Got a pretty good group, just under 1.7 MOA (better than what I managed so far with my AR10ish 308).

        In other news, bought something new (or actually pretty old), and it should be on it's way to me tomorrow

          The decocker. I'm starting to lean more towards the Scorpion, since I don't have anything like it and I already have a 9mm carry gun. Really it depends on if I end up needing to buy a car, which may take priority.

            I'll be the outcast and vote for the Henry in .45-70 Gubmint.

              One thing to keep in mind is that RAMI availability can be spotty at times, especially for the decocker guns (this issue exists for other CZ pistols as well), whereas I haven't noticed any availability issues with the Scorpion. That said, the Scorpion is well made, but for some reason the recoil impulse is oddly sharp. It's not unbearable, but it's not as smooth as an MP5 clone.

                Despite concealed carry not really being a Canadian thing, there is a provision in the firearm laws for it, called "Authorisation to carry, protection of life"
                ​​​​​​
                Somebody made an access to information request to the RCMP to know how many were issued in the whole country.

                The answer came back: 2.

                  And I’ll bet both are either celebrities, politicians, or wealthy connected folks.

                    There's more people with licenses to carry on my block in a Boston suburb than in all of Canada?

                      The total number of people in my bedroom right now with a license to carry is the same as the entire nation of Canada's CFPs.

                        Just received my latest acquisition.

                        It's a gun I've dreamed of owning for over 25 years.

                        My first German gun, to go with my first German car...

                        A 1984 H&K P7M8.








                        I want to go shoot it, why do I have to work, why!?


                        Edit: Called it quit 1h early at work and went shooting. 100 rounds, 2 failure to feed, gun shoots super nicely, started getting hot after 75 rounds, last 15 were painful.
