welcome.


Do you use the same user name on other gun boards like 1911addicts?

Same icon I have seen on other forums, so I believe so

Gun News & Laws / Re: Gander Mountain filing for bankruptcy

I went - NO gun stuff is on sale - not even ammo. Everything else was mostly just 10% off. Not really much of a sale when it's over priced to begin with.

5.11 pants that cost $50 at Academy are $79 at Gander. So, 10% is still worthless...

What is interesting is that it appears that all backstock guns are out on the shelf now. So, they had like 20 Kimber 380s of the exact same model. They had a lot, lot more duplicate guns out.

California may end ban on communists in government jobs


Quote
SACRAMENTO, CALIF.
Being a communist would no longer be a fireable offense for California government employees under a bill passed Monday by the state Assembly.

Lawmakers narrowly approved the bill to repeal part of a law enacted during the Red Scare of the 1940s and '50s when fear that communists were trying to infiltrate and overthrow the U.S. government was rampant. The bill now goes to the Senate.

It would eliminate part of the law that allows public employees to be fired for being a member of the Communist Party.

EXCLUSIVE – Congressional Expert: North Korea Prepping EMP Catastrophe Aimed At U.S. Homefront

Speaking on this reporter’s talk radio program, Pry pointed to two North Korean satellites that are currently orbiting the U.S. at trajectories he says are optimized for a surprised EMP attack. “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” is broadcast on terrestrial radio on New York’s AM 970 The Answer and NewsTalk 990 AM in Philadelphia and online.

Ok. I was wondering if they had any deals at the College Station one

If your idea of a good deal is MSRP +20% -10%..

I was in there yesterday looking for hiking boots for my daughter.. Took a stroll and they were still more expensive than anyone else. despite their markdowns.
good riddance.

I figured that. I will swing by there tomorrow - I wanna look at the knives and a few other things. But yes - I don't suspect there will be any real deals.

Handguns and Revolvers / Re: New Sig MK25

Thanks for the info on the 226/228/229 trigger reach comparison.

A little off-topic, but I'm looking online at a 92 Compact, but I've never held one.  How does that grip size compare with a full size 92?  And how does the Compact grip size compare with a Vertec?  I really like how the Vertec fits in my hand, but not so much with the regular 92, so I'm wondering how the Compact grip size compares.

I have owned 3 92 compacts before. The grips are more like a standard 92, just a little shorter. So, nothing like a Vertec.

I got to shoot it Friday morning - shot excellent. Several bullets into the same hole. Very happy with the gun.

Slightly better photo:

Hate raise this specter again but:

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/retail/2017/05/04/gander-mountains-new-owner-camping-world-keep-17-stores

The Scout.com link seems to be the most informative but there is a lot lot of conflicting information out there regarding stores being closed, remaining open and asset liquidation. I went to the GM in College Station yesterday and although they have people out front holding "up to" 30% off it's mostly clothing marked down from their already inflated price to retail prices. No discounts on firearms, ammo or reloading equipment. Saw a used (and looked it)Gen 3 Glock 19 9mm one mag $500. Now that's a great deal LOL.
