    I hate the gun industry

    You can have any accessory you want. As long as it is made for a Glock, AR-15, or Remington 700. So aggravating. If not, you're sh it out of luck.

    You should buy a CZ. That should clear up your issue.

    What accessory are you desiring and for what firearm? There's a whole industry out there devoted to making sure you can end up with your heart's desire.

    I don't know how to do anything, I grew up playing video games. However, youtube is changing that somewhat. I eventually found what I needed, I usually do unless it's a holster. I wanted a nice base/picatinny rail for my Savage 11 lightweight hunter. The options were unlimited if you had a Remington 700. There were some for the savage but everything was sold out or on backorder. I eventually got a TPS base and Seekins rings, but first had to research reviews along with what was available. I don't want to worry about the rail and rings when shooting at great distances.

    Had an FN FAL. Had to sell it, if you're a gunsmith or a handy person with a good workshop, what an awesome rifle it would have been. Can't do anything with it otherwise.


    I like XD and XD(m)'s. All holsters I want are made for Glock. If Fl ever gets OC, which we won't, this problem will be alleviated somewhat. The last CC holster I wanted was the vanguard 2 from Raven concealment. Again, Glock or M&P only.

    Tell the NRA that Obama is trying to infringe on your ability to get Savage accessories and stand by. Some NRA fed congressman will float a "Savage Accessory Access" bill that will require stores to stock Savage Accessories because, you know, the 2nd Amendment guarantees the right to bear modified Savage rifles. /s

    So..... if a manufacturer provides an accessory for any one model of rifle, shotgun or pistol, they should be required to provide that same accessory for every model of rifle, shotgun or pistol?

    Not me. I provided a perfectly sarcastic answer right off the bat.

    Venting? C'mon. I've been angry ever since Remington converted their revolvers to fire metallic cartridges. The whole world went ga-ga over new-fangled, all-in-one cartridges.

    Suddenly, I ended up having to cast my own round-ball bullets--nobody sold them any more. Either that, or spend a fortune buying a special revolver cylinder converted to fire metallic cartridges. It wasn't until about thirty years ago, I noticed a company named Speer was making round balls again.

    By that time, black powder and round ball was relegated to a recreational activity <snort!>

    Don't tell me about venting!

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    LOL, merely a jocular venting.

    It is strange though. I don't care what people like, glock and remy 700 are ubiquitous so naturally there will be more accessories for them. It's just painful when what you think are superior products aren't supported nearly as well by peripheral industries.

    Amazing what can be found there. Submit your FFL and you get a discount pricing.

    Well there is your problem, but you have identified it yourself and you are taking actions (youtoob) to remedy it. I build/create firearms, it is very fun. Try this site to enhance your knowledge. http://www.weaponsguild.com/

    I carried an FN-Fal for a year in the bush while in central africa. Great weapon that always worked for me. Very heavy and extra rounds got heavy too, especially when you had to jump out of aircraft with it. The key to the FN is the same as the Stoner, you have to keep it bloody clean. Not easy to do in the bush, very easy to do at home.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
