    I have been wanting a nice O/U for a while. I sold some guns and saved my pennies and bought this Zoli. Took her out and shot some sporting clays today.

    Finally found a Python in what I consider good shape and I could afford. I've been on the Python search for quite some time now. Most of them I'd want to take home must have gold screws! Sorry for the lousy pics.

    Just in case anyone needs to know. When you have a record expunged in Tennessee, the state MAILS the orders to TBI and they have up to 60 days to remove it. The mailing process is slow, as we found out. My husband called them on Wednesday to ask how long and was told that if the state had FAXED it, it would have been removed in hours. He told them he had a copy of the orders and could he fax and was told yes. He faxed them at 4:15pm with a cover sheet with his name and phone number. Then on Thursday morning he got a call at 8:15am and was informed that they got the fax and removed it. He asked about the FBI and was told they removed it the same day the state does! We wasn't sure, so he decided to wait 24 hours. Friday morning, he went to Academy Sports, picked out a Glock g43x and submitted the paperwork for the nics check. 15 minutes later he legally purchased his first handgun and skipped off out of the store grinning from ear to ear! Once in the truck, he scheduled his ccw class for this morning. Needless to say, after having a felony since he was 20 years old, 30 years later and he is no longer a felon. Thank you all for your interest and feedback. I hope this helps anyone in the same situation. The attorney we used is Daniel Horwitz in Nashville. Highly recommended.

    Wanting to get rid of 4 Kahrs. P40, P45, PM45, CW9. $600 for all four. 615-512-3903 text or call. Buyer beware- I can say with with utmost confidence that these are the most non-trouble free and unreliable guns I have owned. I’ve tried to be patient and forgiving and really want to like them. But they don’t make it easy, and I’ve had enough. Before I take the band saw to them I figure I should try to get at least something out of them. I feel guilty selling them, but if you’re willing to take on their unique idiosyncrasies and have the patience to turn them into productive, useful members of society, more power to you. FTF sale to TN carry permit holders, cash only, meet in Nashville. Some of their peculiarities include : P45, bought new in December. I have approx. 1,000 rounds through it. Installed a new slide release retention spring because out of the box the slide release was working its way loose while shooting. Since replacing spring, the slide release stays put and it has actually cycled a full magazine of fmj without a malfunction. But sadly, anything other than hardball causes a ftf on 2nd or 3rd round every time. After some feed ramp polishing and range time I figured it might come around, but not so. Guess it needs somebody more patient and knowledgeable than me. Which isn’t saying much, I admit. Plastic case and 3 mags. Soo, moving on... the P40 was great until about a month ago it started dropping mags whenever it wanted. I’ve tried shooting left handed, shooting with thumbs out, shooting with somebody else’s hands, and mags still drop with each shot. Almost as aggravating as the P45 ftf’s. I’m guessing that a new mag release might solve it but it doesn’t really have enough rounds through it to warrant replacement parts or repairs so I’m over it. Plastic case and 2 mags. The CW9 has been pretty good, once in a while has a ftf but not often. Just enough to make it less than 100% reliable. 2 mags, no box. The PM45 has actually been surprisingly reliable. I kind of want to keep it but figure it’s an outlier and someone else deserves a chance to experience a trouble free Kahr. Plastic case and 3 mags. So there you have it. A dysfunctional family of four if ever there was one. I wouldn’t buy them, I’d spend my money on something worthwhile. But if you have $600 burning a hole in your pocket give me a shout.

    Sold Too many purchases lately so putting this one out there since it's just sitting right now. This one started out as a Ruger Mark III 22/45 Target Model that was transformed by Turnbull Restorations. This gun originally had a polymer lower that did not have grip panels. I bought another Mark III and swapped the lowers so that I could add wood grips to better match the gorgeous Turnbull finish. Grips are cocobolo that look great in my opinion and really take the looks up a notch. I bought this one new a few months ago as new old stock and have not even chambered a round much less shot it. Comes with plastic case, paperwork, gun lock, picatinny rail, the wrap around Hogue grips that were on the donor gun I bought and 3 mags. Feel free to PM with any questions. $450 Will ship for $25

    Ok here is what they found. She had an artery almost totally blocked and the doctors did an angioplasty balloon repair to re open the artery and start the blood flowing back to her heart muscle. They will do a follow up in 2 weeks with another arteriagram and if it shows signs of any changes they will stint that artery at that time. I found out doctors have two options when they do this procedure and as best we can tell the doctors did not stint it this time when they could have performed both the angioplasty and stint at same time. I was dissappointed to hear that, but they are the doctors making the decisions. She is at home now with Tommy staying with her. Weak but out of pain. Prayers are still appreciated

    Free time has been pretty scarce lately, but I carved out a little recently to assemble this pistol build chambered in AAC 300 Blackout. I still haven't had a chance to get it to the range to sight it in, but plan to soon. My objective was to build something better than the Springfield Saint for around the same money or less. I wanted a pistol so that it would be legal to have in the vehicle anywhere in the US that allows pistols, and wanted 300BLK to take advantage of the cartridge's nature to burn all powder within an eight to nine inch barrel, with good ballistics for social distances (and then some). Being that I wanted a firearm that I could travel with and not worry with alerting the BATFE as would be the case with a short barrel rifle, I also skipped building this as something ready for a suppressor. There is no point in avoiding red-tape in one area, only to induce it by traveling with a can. Before assembling the upper receiver, I locked it into a vise and then squared and lapped the upper receiver face with a Brownells lapping tool to make sure that it would mate flush with the barrel extension. Here's a list of the parts that I used: Palmetto State Armory lower receiver with Magpul MOE grip, SBA3 brace, and nickle plated trigger and hammer assembly Aero Precision upper receiver with forward assist Toolcraft black nitride bolt carrier group Ballistic Advantage 9.5 inch barrel (300 BLK) Black nitride gas block, low profile, 0.750 inch Black nitride pistol length gas tube VG6 Precision Gamma 300BLK muzzle device BCM MCMR M-Lok Free Float Handguard - 8 inch Radian Raptor charging handle Geissele Super Precision mount for Trijicon MRO Trijicon MRO, Red dot. Minus the MRO and mount, making this an apples to apples comparison, I came in at around $750 which is definitely cheaper than the Springfield Saint with a mixture of components that I feel provide an overall higher quality firearm.

    REMOVE the penalty for carrying past signage ! Signs protect NO ONE. And an otherwise law abiding person should not be able to be prosecuted for committing the "crime" of refusing to be helpless.

    Verification of identity is one thing. Giving you a photo of my DL that contains my DL number, full name, DOB, and address ain't happening. To me, ID theft is more of a threat than buying a gun from an established member.

    The guy who cares little and knows even less about actual US military weapons would not be interested in these to begin with. The average gun buyer would rather have a nice shiny new Kimber or Ruger 1911 than one of the CMP military 1911s and that is fine. To each his own. NO one who is buying these guns is expecting a museum piece. They all know they are US Property 1911A1s or 1911s upgraded to A1 spec that likely have seen service and were arsenal rebuilt at some point . They probably also know that some of the frames will be 80, 90,or even 100 years old at this point....the YOUNGEST ones will be 75 years old because 1944 was the last time the US military ordered 1911A1 pistols other than some tiny batches for the Marines. They also know that as they were rebuilt the armorers at the arsenals used parts from the parts bin with little care or inclination to try to match manufacturers so many will be "mixmasters" like a Colt frame and an Ithica slide. Having said that I have seen some that are matching frames and slides, so some buyers might get lucky in that regard. It will most likely have been refinished in the 1980s and now be a dull gray parkerized finish. It MIGHT have a matching upper and lower but it is just as likely to not. THAT is how REAL military 1911/1911A1s were after being turned back in after WWII. And THAT is what the people buying these are buying them for. To have a REAL US Govt Property 1911A1 that most likely went to Europe or the Pacific , to Korea or Vietnam and was reworked afterwards in case things ever got hot with the USSR. Is it the ideal carry gun? No. But I doubt ANYONE is ordering one to carry it. There are far more logical choices that are cheaper and easier to get at your local gun store for that purpose...but those guns are not US Property 1911s and to the people ordering these guns that is far more important.

    Another vote for the Springfield Range Officer. The absolute best bang for the buck that meets your criteria. First 1911 should Must be a .45acp. Anything less is depriving yourself of the true 1911 experience.

    Perhaps a Springfield Range Officer. There are several offerings in the family in both .45 and 9mm. Usually around $800 or less for the basic model. https://www.springfield-armory.com/products/1911-range-officer-45-acp/ https://www.springfield-armory.com/products/1911-range-officer-9mm/#PI9129L

    Two different discussions here.... 1. Close distance sims rounds hurt. I've done a fair amount of work in the 0-5 foot distance envelope with both airsoft and sims and have been shot with them at contact distance numerous times. It is not fun. But the object of the exercise was not to have fun it was to work on surviving close distance lethal force problems. Should the teachers have been shot with sims rounds ? I can make an argument for it and against it. 2. As to it causing them PTSD? You know part of the problem is that you have liberal teachers and school administrators who have never been in a fist fight trying to have a say in how to STOP KILLERS. "Conflict resolution" only works if there is a "conflict" that can be mediated....an active shooter is not there to negotiate or come to a settlement...he is there to kill. Victory for him is not getting a concession from the other side...it is stacking up corpses. So it might not be a bad idea for those teachers and administrators to be exposed (in a training environment where they will not be actually killed for real) to this level of violence so they will get their minds right as what REALLY will limit body counts in a school shooting event. Capitulation and negotiation and "feeling the misunderstood youth's pain" is not going to stop someone whose goal is to stack up corpses. Only an overwhelming application of lawful moral lethal violence will.

    Methinks he's in for a hard row to hoe with this. I recommend he NOT try to buy a gun yet, until he's 100% positive it is legal. Expungement doesnt necessarily do it. He could be charged with a crime for trying.

    I started training with SI and Randy Harris in 2012, primarily with handguns, though I have taken 2 one-day shotgun classes and a one-day carbine class. I like Randy's instruction style, he is local, and I can learn a lot from him (unless he gives me an excuse to find a new training org) He knows his stuff: https://suarezinternational.com/randy-harris/ This was my first two-day close range rifle class and the content did not disappoint. Day one started with some classwork and then it was out to range for dry work; gun manipulations from standing, kneeling, and prone. Here is where we focused on muzzle and trigger finger control, for me it started me on the habit of engaging the safety when my hand leaves the pistol grip or, at a ready position with no immediate threat. We then made sure our guns were dialled in, meaning it will hit a target at 25 yards if I do my part. My gear = HiPoint Bullpup and M1 carbine. I brought my AR, but had too much fun with the others. Worked out of pockets - no battle belt / chest rig. You CAN be tactically practical with a pocket load out, but have a plan (and place) to retain your mags. I am investigating the simple dump pouch for future classes. The reason I mention my kit is it makes no difference what your gear is, as long as it is functionally safe and my goal is to train like I would most likely use my stuff. I also hope it encourages the guy or gal like me, competent with a self defense long gun, but a basic static shooting background, to get more experience (with ANY quality instructor) Before you upgrade your gear, upgrade yourself. Comparing my two carbines: for home defense, inside the walls, the HP Bullpup is the winner - both short, compact, and 9mm. The M1C is a better choice for multi purpose use, simply more effective at longer ranges and is more fun to shoot. Sights: red dots are awesome for closer quarters, I have a budget model on the HiPoint. You probably want some kind of BUIS - batteries die, electronics break and rain can obscure your dot or reticle. The M1C has the traditional ladder peep sight - my challenge is I don't pick up the sight picture quickly and they don't seem be the best design for movement. With this particular carbine (low sight to bore) at less than 20y, if you have good alignment, contact points, and decent trigger control, you can cheat and look over the rear peep. Does rain impact a peep? Not me, but the student with the Galil had to blow water off / through his. What about my AR? Well, it's back in the bedroom armory. Shooting. I was pleased with me performance and believe when the light bulb went off, my confidence really soared. I realized shooting a carbine puts the muzzle out to an equivalent distance of full pistol extension. With a good cheek weld, it's a super long barrelled pistol with the added benefit of using more contact points to hold it steady. Sounds like a "d'uh" moment, but I had to experience it to learn it. What I should have done is practiced more pro-active reloads, but keep trying to run dry to transition to my pistol. And I did try, with the option of 1-5 shots during live fire, I took all 5. Get to end, 1-2-3 rounds left. Side note, the rebuild on the M1C was successful. 250 rounds, 2 FtoFeed, identified weak mag springs. Worked going to my weak side for 85% of the drills - only lefty in class. Still accurate, even for the "he's not down" shots to the beak. What I was most amazed at was my John Wick like pistol skills. The drill was transition to pistol. Working to my weak side, my carbine was unslung, so I had to secure it, muzzle down, stock secured with my right arm. All of my one handed pistol shots were right on the beak, 4" or so, with no flyers...and I haven't shot live in weeks. Dry fire practice is working for me. Regarding slings, find what works for you, but the two-point seems to be the most versatile with ease of gun manipulations. I mention this in case you have to switch shoulders - can you or do you have a plan to unsling or detact yourself from your gun. Other guns represented: we had a AR pistol, Kel-Tec RDB, Galil, AK47, 3 other ARs, and my two odd balls.

    People want to dress their guns up, so you have this. Honestly think that ARs have got people wanting tinker toy guns now. Not saying ARs are bad, cause they aren't. But people now want to customize all their guns. It's the fashion statement of the gun industry now.
