    Willickers! Check out the operator's new acquisition!!!

    Here's my not-so-epic story behind it. Bought the TWS lower at the Palmaghetto gun show 8-ish months ago for like $240-ish if memory serves. Sat on it for months, and months, and months. Find out buddy McJobin in my Nasty Girl unit works for Spike's Tactical, he offers to build me an upper...

    Question about my Sig 226...any Sig experts please help!

He never carries it, so I'd rather let it sit in a holster than a safe :P It's a two tone 226, I believe the slide is a stainless steel finish. The proof marks underneath the muzzle are a...

    Open carried this weekend

    Open carried for the first time in a non-work related capacity this weekend. To and from my NG drill. Stopped at a couple of rest stops and a gas station, only once did someone look at it, acknowledge it, or anything of the sort. Felt bad being as that it shouldn't only be superpeople (IE cops...

    JoJo, we need a translation here O_o

    So back when I was in the academy I was doing a little flipply flip through my FSS book, and found this little gem that I had forgotten about. FSS 870.043, .044, .045, and .05... Primarily what disturbs me is .044 and .05...but perhaps I'm reading it wrong. What confuses me is despite the end of...

    What if it passes?

    So with all this talk of a looming all out gun ban and/or AWB, the Feinsteinator, and all this other crap...most people are holding the optimistic view that the house will reject anything and nothing will pass. I can't help but ask myself, what's the course of action for us as gun owners if it...

    AR15 Pistol Questions

    I suppose this is technically the proper place for this thread =P This weekend I got the ball rolling on my AR15 pistol project by purchasing a Tactical Weapons Solutions AR15 pistol lower. Now the tricky part is finding a suitable upper. My budget is around 600 bucks, plus or minus. I've been...

    F.S.S. is in violation of the constitution

    If Crane v. State (1989) says it is a privilege and not a right to concealed carry, and it is a misdemeanor criminal offense to carry openly, is this not a violation of both 2A of the US constitution, and 14A of the US constitution? Wouldn't 14A of the US constitution nullify the "except that...

    http://www.wptv.com/dpp/news/state/concealed-weapons-on-the-rise-in-florida-state-poised-to-hit-1-million-mark-for-weapons-permits Was surprised to see that Miami-Dade county has the highest number of permits. Too bad we don't have OC or constitutional carry.

    Para USA LTC 1911...I need new sights!

    Anyone know where I can order some high visibility sights for this sweet 1911? I love mine, but the factory sights are garbage on it. I don't necessarily need night sights or a fiber optic front sight (although that would be nice), but I just need some decent sights that will fit the weapon and...
