I should have the rig in my hands within the next two weeks according to my armor dealer. :clap:
i hope you didnt buy from AR500Armor.com

Worst customer service ever. Constantly postponing my order. Got to the point I threatened BBB action cause they could send me 3 emails a day wit OOS crap but delayed 4 times. Probably cheap Chinese tool steel. I dont remember getting a NJI paper work, but by that point i was done.
I'm not entirely sure who my armor dealer gets his stuff from, to be honest. He constantly updates me on the status of my order and he's pretty good about keeping up with orders.

Once I get the rig in my hands, I'll update you on who made it.

On topic: one box of Perfecta 9mm ammo for my P89.

Forgot to mention I took advantage of one of PSA's free shipping deals and snagged 500 rounds of PMC 9mm.

Hey Everyone:

I just rec'd 50 SKS stripper clips from UTG/Amazon. They held the ammo nice & tight; but they would not go into the grooves on my Ruskie (1953r). Does anyone know where I can get some strippers that will work on a Russian SKS?

Marlin 336BL in 30 30 and a little Savage Rascal .22LR youth rifle for a little compact backpacking/survival gun, and for a starter gun for my kiddo when she's a little older.

Not my personal cup of tea but I have had to run down AK stuff before; so, try this:

I have some primed aluminum 9mm cases coming to try out for reloading.

Because I hate trying to reclaim my brass when there's snow on the ground... I'll clean up the aluminum when the snow melts. And the indoor range I shoot at does not allow you to pick up your brass. :roll:

Just got a Win 94 Octagon carbine for .................... $250 with 2.5 boxes of ammo. It felt like stealing. ** update** Sold Already**

And, since I blew most of my money I was saving for a SPR AR build I spent the rest on a custom contender barrel in 7GNR (30-30 blown out, short necked, necked down to 7mm) from Reeder Custom Guns. So I'm near to making another personal Grail Gun. Just need to find a stainless Contender Frame.

Chiappa Double Badger in 22lr over 20 gauge

Had a chance to buy a Baikal 22lr/20g a year or so ago for $300 and passed, regretted it ever since. Thought about a Savage 42 22lr/410, but after handling one, I really wasn't feeling it. Finally broke down and picked this one up for $400 otd factory new.

Picked one of these up today in .40.
The first gen was fun to shoot but didnt have me convinced.
Was reading reviews since the 2nd gen came out and pretty much set the hook.
My local shop advised me to go through an auction site and get it sent to him to do the xfer because of how hard they can be to get in the right pistol/caliber combination.

Loving that new gun smell.

I traded two bricks of .22LR for a Type 99 Japanese Arisaka rifle today.

It's the first time I've ever traded ammo for a rifle.

Anyone tracking ammunition prices? I need more .45 ACP and have been casually looking for about a month and have not seen much movement. I am not saying it's not available -just that I'm not seeing the ridiculous prices that we had ten and twenty years ago. After hearing about all of the panic before the election I was hoping for better.

Am I missing something?

While shooting at the range the other day (blowing off all old 9mm under loads [F'd up my metering when I first started]), the power cut out at the range. I had my taclight on the pistol. Turned it on and continued to fire until my mags were empty. Then quickly exited realizing that the ventilation wasn't going (dumbass).

But I realized my Trijicon sights were practically dead! Could barely see them anymore, looked at the date and they were 09! Not even 10 years on them and they were practically dead.

So got myself some new night sites and had them installed. Bonus, this thing now shoots DEAD center. I had the target as far out as it would go (37 yards), and was hitting the bullseye. All this time I thought I couldn't shoot pistols for shit, turns out old sites were a little loose!

Nice three slot pancake holster for the SAR B6P to replace the generic hip holster. I plan to EDC this gun, so a comfortable holster is a must.

S&W M&P Shield 45 for $299 ($317 shipped)

Minus the $75 rebate that's $225 for a nice SD carry piece 8-)

45 degree offset iron sights for the AR, cheap off brand from Amazon. However if I like them and it works I may buy better ones later, or if these work well and are accurate I may just keep them.

I didn't necessarily buy these, but I guess it counts.

I traded 40 bucks worth of .22lr ammo three weeks ago for a Japanese Arisaka 7.7x58 rifle.

Yesterday I traded the Arisaka for a Smith and Wesson SW22 Victory .22lr pistol.
