    I have now been tobacco-free for 1 year. I had used tobacco products for the last 25 years, and I went cold turkey March 1, 2014. I think I have the addiction beat now. :-)

    This so far has been the Best way to end a week, First I got to come home after 42 days at Sea and be with my loving family, Then I Bought my Dream Motorcycle( Pick it up after my upgrades are installed) And today I got this Big Box from my Pals at Protech, The weather actually delayed my having this package earlier, The plan was to surprise you all by having them shipped out to you by the end of today, I will do my Best to have them all shipped by the time the mail is collected Monday

    Me personally I would shoot and enjoy it. But I would also shoot a $4,000 mint condition Colt Combat Python. Firearms are meant to be shot and/or carried.

      Lotta folks use saddle soap, mink oil, whatever on leather to make it more soft and/or supple. Good idea maybe for jackets and furniture, not so much for holsters.   - OS

    Let me guess... you ordered one and got double of what you ordered. And the price you are selling it for is what it came out to with your shipping cost.

    Why is it once you obtain fame and fortune you feel your opinions have any value to the general public? Is it the elitist lifestyle you live that makes you soooo much of an expert on anything? You don't really produce anything but 1 to 2 hours of entertainment. Your career is promoting a fantasy world and somehow your view of the real world is relative? Get a real job and shut the eff up

    Back when I was 6 years old I had an old man that lived next store to us and he grew huge flower beds and people would come from Chicago and buy flowers from him. In his spare time he took me fishing with old cane poles in ponds behind our home. As time went on he taught me how to catch night crawlers at night after a rain so we didn't have to dig worms and we put them in a worm bed that old man and I built. We fed them old bread , egg shells and coffee grounds.   As time went on and I turned 7 the old man taught me how to watch the time of the year that the baby painted turtles would hatch and I could catch about 100 or more that didn't get ran over crossing the road we lived on. When I turned 10 the old man figured it was time for me to move up to the bigger and better things and we began building cages all winter, getting ready for Spring. Then I got my training on another turtle. The Snapper which took a lot more teaching. Keeping all my fingers was priority 1.  A farmer about 3 miles down the road supplied us with chicken guts when he cleaned chickens and we would put turtle lines out in the ponds. I was having a lot of fun but was not aware that the old man was preparing me to become a business man. Once we got the snapping turtle down to a fine science he began to show me the business end of it all.     First thing we did was take a trip to town with my mothers help and made stops at both pet shops in town with the little painted turtles. I was able to sell all I had for 25 cents each which added up to $21.75 for 87 turtles. Then he had my mother take us around to several small grocery stores and we put up a small sign on their out side note boards that I had live snapping turtles for sale and my phoe number. In a few days I began getting calls from folks wanting to come and buy a turtle. We had 27 turtles in cages and I sold 12 of them the first week. Depending on the size, the small ones up to 12 lbs went for $4.00 and the big ones up to 20lbs for $6.00. I kept Turtle lines out to restock. Sent folks home with a big turtle in a burlap bag and  a smile.   Now comes the night Crawler business. We had a river that ran through my hometown and it was full of carp and bullheads and every weekend during the summer the African Americans would come out of Chicago to fish on Saturday and Sunday. They would buy their bait before leaving Chicago and paying top dollar for night crawlers. I went up there to the river bank with a buddy of mine and took 20 tin cans of night crawlers with 25 crawlers per can. I ask a few guys what they were paying for night crawlers and they said $.99 + tax for 10 worms. I told them I would sell them 25 crawlers for $.70 with a $.10 deposit on the can. If they came back the next week and bought baits from me and had the old can they would get the baits for $.60. In no time I had a really good bait business with one problem. Bait was getting scarce cause it was not raining enough. The old man laughed and said that was the only thing he could not help me with is Mother Nature. Well, that is why I have always said it is great to have friends in the right places. One of my friends parents owned a golf course and they watered in dry spells everyday. I got permission to go crawler hunting on the golf course as long ans I stayed off the greens. in 1 night me and two buddies filled a 5 gallon pail with night crawlers and I put them in the worm beds. Never has a shortage of crawlers again.     If it was not for this old man my childhood would have been a lot like most others. When he passed away I knew I had lost my best friend forever. In the peak months of Summer I made more money per week than my father did driving truck over the road. I was able to give my parents money to help with house bills, food and even bought school clothes for my 3 older brothers which were for the most part lazy bums. They might cut a lawn for someone for spending money but to actually work was not happening for them. I just wanted to share what my childhood was all about and I grew up never changing my outlook of being a hard worker. I look back at those days with great memories. Mostly I remember my old Friend Mr Gueson.

    If I'm not going to shoot it, I don't need to pay for it. A good picture is as useful as an unfired gun.

    In this day and age an NFA background check should not be instant. The background for NFA transfers is no more in depth than a standard check. It isn't like they are doing a credit check or even local checks, just a criminal history check at the federal level to make sure you are not a felon. The reason it takes so long is because there is a line, not because the checks take so much longer. Or at a minimum make a frequent flyer program for those who transfer more than once a year. Or for trusts make it instant because you cannot do a background on an entity like a trust or business. And as far as the $200 stamp cost for any NFA it is discriminating against those with a reduced incomes. Anyone, regardless of their financial status, should be able to own the best weapon to protect themselves without the additional costs associated with anything NFA. And by limiting availability they have increased the cost of machine guns to a point only the super rich can afford them, again denying the average person the ability to use a machine gun for self defense if they feel that is the best weapon to use.

    It's not just old, but a bad fit to begin with. Here's a G26 in a soft Remora. Notice how much more of the firearm (esp. the trigger guard) it covers than the one in the OP. I have no issues with using the soft Remora holster.

    Ouch, that's got to smart a bit.  Seems like more of a PMCS issue than a soft holster issue though.  That indentation looks to be old, should of been replaced some time ago.

    I think we should challenge the notion that civilians cant have AP ammo in the first place. I suppose they would have us believe criminals dont have armor (LA Shootout). Of course, the purpose of the The 2nd Amendment is to guard us against tyranny. Tyrants usually have armor.

I'm asking $850 Cash FTF  $775 CASH in the Goodlettsville, Nashville area but I can drive a little to make the transaction. Here are some pics. if you need better or some others PM me your email address and I'll send them. This gun is a shooter, but I haven't fired it in a few yrs. just sits in my safe taking up space for something else I could be using. Sorry but no Trades at this time.  Leather Sling is not included(it was hand made for me w/ my name on it) Thanks. I should have stated that the Stock is an Original Rem. but not original to the Rifle ( I purchased the Stock 6 yrs. ago from an old friend who collected 03-A3's it took me a while to get him to sell it to me before he passed) I'm open to all reasonable offers, just please PM them to me.   Lowered Price- $775 CASH.

    Mine is the 9mm. I've put around 600 rounds of so through it id say. Although in the last year I've probably only put 100 through it. I take it shooting every few times I go and run a couple magazines through it just to confirm function. If you can see it for what it is, I highly doubt you'll be disappointed. Now, the reason I don't enjoy putting a lot of rounds through it is because I have to modify my grip for it. I shoot with what I believe is referred to as a "thumbs forward" grip, and you can't really do that with these guns like others. I typically rest my left thumb on the frame forward of the trigger guard (right handed), you'll see if you do that with these pistols you'll be resting your thumb on the slide.

    Out of the 13 or 14 1911s I have owned I have had 3 Armscor RIAs:  .38 Super, 9mm and .45.  They all ran well out of the box.  At the time I had the .38 Super I ran across a 9mm 1911 barrel/pin/link from SARCO for 49.99, ordered it, dropped it right in to the .38 Super and commenced to firing.  I couldn't believe it.  At the range I found no discernible difference between shooing a Dan Wesson Pointman 9 vs the RIA 9mm, but then none of the major manufacturers have asked me to shoot for them:)  If it were me I would get the RIA Tactical so that at some later date you can fit better sights if you want to.  If you get the GI model and you decide you want better sights you will have to pay someone to cut dovetails in your slide and between sights and the machining you would be better off with the slightly more expensive RIA Tactical. I don't know which sight cuts the RIA Tactical has but I'll bet there are some after market sights that will fit.

    I actually did Google it before asking and didn't find a definitive answer in my first 10 minutes of searching so I thought that I'd bring my question here.  After all if no one asks questions we don't have anything to talk about anyway.  I honestly don't use this round but I still care about this topic, I don't want to see any round being banned.  Furthermore from my research I found that it is actually not classified as an armor piercing round though everyone who thinks that it should be banned believes that it is.  Your right though Garufa, call it anything but a "penetrator" and we wouldn't be talking about it?
