Optics, Lights, Lasers, Holsters & Accessories / Micro red dots
« on: October 27, 2019, 07:37:54 PM »
Any of you guys have a red dot on a handgun? I talked about how I just bought a P80 lower in another thread and then I found a Holosun 507c on sale so I bought that. Wondering if any of you have any experience with similar optics!

*SOLD*

Hi all,

For sale is my Finnish M39 Mosin-Nagant from the Sako armory. It is built on a 1910 receiver from the Izhevsk arsenal.

I'm asking $600 or best offer, willing to ship to your FFL if they're willing to accept from an individual. FTF available within a reasonable drive of the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex.

I'm willing to take more pictures for a serious buyer, just let me know.

Thanks for looking!

Handguns and Revolvers / They say its Glocktober...
« on: October 27, 2019, 07:32:31 PM »
I've kinda been toying around the idea of building a polymer 80 glock lower for a while thinking I'd make it into a race gun for 3-Gun or something. Well, its "Glocktober" and I found a polymer 80 lower on sale for only 75 bucks... and bought it.

It's kinda a weird one though. It has a Glock 19 length grip but a Glock 17 length frame, so you finish it with G17 parts. Which got me thinking...

Did you know the G34 (the long slide 9mm) is also built on a G17 frame? Soooooo I'm really tempted to build it out into a G34... but with a G19 sized grip.   :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

Anyway hi how are you guys?

One of Marquez's bullets struck the suspect's pistol, traveling straight down that gun's barrel and disabling it. Officials say such a shot is "one in a billion."

Hi all!

I'm getting married and am short on cash, so please buy my AR-15 so I don't have to take my fiancee through the drive through on our honey moon!

Its a Palmetto State Armory with a 14.7inch heavy profile barrel with a pinned and welded flash suppressor. This is the shortest you can go without a stamp! The heavy barrel is nice, this gun takes a while to heat up so your groups stay tighter longer.

I'm also throwing in the Primary Arms MD-06 micro dot and riser, troy folding battlesight, Hogue grip, and of course the Secret Squirrel sticker.

Asking 800 obo. Prefer Money order or cash. Can meet you anywhere in DFW, I'd prefer not to ship at this time.

Some pictures:





Thanks for looking!

Gun News & Laws / CHL holder shot dead by Minnesota Cop
« on: July 07, 2016, 02:08:21 PM »
From NRO:http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/437559/few-thoughts-killing-philando-castile

Quote
As blood soaked through Castile’s shirt, Reynolds said on camera that Castile was legally licensed to carry a firearm and was reaching for his identification when the officer started to shoot.

“He let the officer know that he had a firearm and he was reaching for his wallet and the officer just shot him in his arm,” she said.

The Washington Post article linked to in the NRO one I've posted has the video. I watched it... its heartbreaking.

Cooke's points are good and I don't have much to add to them.

Don't let anyone steal that disgust from your heart. It is a precious thing. You should treasure your disgust as a sign of your decency, particularly because hardly anyone else will. Don't let anyone tell you that the nearly uncontrollable urge to retch at the thought of this election is disproportionate, or somehow uncivil. When you contemplate the fate of your country in 2016, you have the right to be depressed, or even despairing.

IMO, this is the only sane view to 2016.

Quote
IWI US’ X95 features a much lighter trigger than that of the Tavor SAR. The X95’s trigger breaks around the five- to six-pound mark and will be compatible with standard Tavor SAR and aftermarket trigger packs.

Look's like IWI is sick of hearing the complaints!  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

Politics, Gripes, Complaints / Lamest gun confiscator ever
« on: January 05, 2016, 09:33:05 AM »
From Charles Cooke at NRO:

"Even if we’re generous and presume that every single one of these regulations finds its way permanently into the law, he will nevertheless have done nothing substantial to further “universal background checks”; he will have instituted none of his coveted magazine limits; and he will have banned none of the weapons that he disdains. Further, he will have set no meaningful precedents whatsoever. In other words: Even if he wins this round, he will have done precisely nothing of merit — except perhaps to have pleased his base and to have convinced the most ignorant parts of the electorate that he has finally stuck his finger into the NRA’s eye. Were these serious measures, I would be squealing. Instead, I’m amused. These are the dampest of squibs."

Rifles & Shotguns / Just ordered a geissele trigger for my Tavor!
« on: December 18, 2015, 11:54:13 AM »
So, I'll still defend the stock trigger as being pretty good for what it is... but Primary Arms had a sale so I just ordered myself a Geissele trigger for my Tavor!

Probably won't get here before Christmas, but I'm looking forward to giving it a shot!  :rocknroll2:

General Gun Discussion / Good range in DFW?

Anyone in the DFW area know of a good outdoor range? I'd like to find a place that's rapid fire friendly. Bonus points if they have steel targets.

Seems like Zimmerman is in the news again: http://www.wesh.com/news/george-zimmerman-involved-in-shooting-in-lake-mary-police-say/32943828

Dude needs to take his book money, buy some land in Alaska, and chill out in a cabin for like five or ten years until everyone forgets who he is.

Hey all,

I've not been on much because I just moved to Dallas and then before I was even un packed my company flew me out to Israel for 8 weeks of training.

Just wanted to let you all know I was still alive...
