    STI Staccato P DUO 9mm 2011 This may be the ultimate host for a red dot optic, and anyone who's been following my posts for the past year knows that I have become a fan of red dots on fighting pistols. I became aware of the Staccato P earlier this year and managed to elbow my way through the crowd around STI's booth and wrap my mitts around one for a few minutes at the NRA Annual Meeting in Indianapolis. Scores of people were doing the same thing, and for pretty good reason. STI has managed to take the lessons they have learned building race guns for competitive shooters over the last 25-years and start cranking out a mass-produced series of combat handguns. The already impressive Staccato P gained even more notoriety this year after word got out that the US Marshals Special Operations Group (SOG) had adopted the pistol for duty use when they looked to depart from the Springfield .45ACP 1911 that they had carried for the last 16-years. While there are easily more expensive handguns owned by quite a few of you here on TGO, this one pushed the boundary of what I am willing to spend on myself. Truthfully I had essentially written off the idea of owning one until I lucked into a little extra cash and my loving wife gave me the green light to do something... impractical... with it. Blah Blah Blah... How's It Shoot? After picking it up from a nearby FFL transfer agent at lunch, I just managed to eke out the last 30 minutes of my local outdoor range's operating hours today before they closed, and ran a few mags of 115gr aluminum cased Federal 9mm FMJ through it to dial in an RMR that I popped off of an M&P for the time being. Before stepping foot out the door I "slaved" the dot to the top of the front iron sight just to get it close and make the process a little quicker. It wasn't too far off at the range. The first three shots made an effortless cloverleaf at 9 yards, about 2 inches lower than my point of aim. It only took a few tweaks of the RMR to get the dot and barrel agreeing with each other at 9 yards, and there was no disagreement at 15 yards either. This target is the last one I shot for the day before they called the final "CLEAR" and I had to pack it up and go home. This is 17 rounds at about 15 yards grouped around a 1" bullseye, offhand. The gun is capable of wayyyyyyy more than I am. I am not sure if I am going to leave this RMR on there or just order another Holosun HE508T and install that instead. I put one of those on my Gen 5 Glock 19 recently and really like the smaller 2MOA dot as compared to the 6.5MOA dot in the Trijicon RM06. There are a lot of other things to like more about the new Holosun too, but I need to make a post about that separately. Anyway... I'm tickled with this 2011. It's the first time I've owned a 2011 or a 9mm 1911/2011 and it could very easily end up seeing some carry on Sundays when I'm doing the Safety Team thing at church. John Moses Browning would approve, I think.

    I started with corrective lenses in the 7th grade, now wear progressive tri-focals. The only time I don't have 'em on is when I turn out the lights at night, and put 'em on before I take a step in the morning. Go see your eye doctor on a regular basis. I have to go every 6 months for early stages of glaucoma.

    I know, right?! The crazy thing is it weighs almost exactly the same as a Glock 17 too thanks to the polymer lower. Thanks. Jamie, I'm going to say that a good 50% of that shooting was the gun, 25% of it was the wind, 20% of it was luck, and 5% of it was the idiot behind the trigger having a reasonably good day.

    Test should also include the oil packages and check for unwanted contaminants in the oil not just metal. If done correctly a oil sample analysis program can be a great thing especially for fleet or emergency equipment or equipment you want to have for a long while.

    My Rock Island pistol finally arrived last week. Took her to the range and fed a few rounds through it. I had no FTEs or FTFs in 100 rounds. The stock magazine worked good. I also bought a WC magazine just in case the stock mag had issues. This is my first .45. One day I hope to get an American made 1911 but for now this is good for me. It is the Ultra FS series.

    Hey folks. My friend Doctor Sherman House is hosting the one and only Massad Ayoob next month in Brentwood, TN for the MAG20 "Armed Citizen’s Rules of Engagement" class. This class is could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for middle Tennesseans to take this class from Mas locally, and it is currently in danger of being cancelled if they cannot get enough students signed up. A mere $400 gets you a two-day, 20-hour immersion course in rules of engagement for armed law-abiding private citizens, emphasizing legal issues, tactical issues, and aftermath management. Topics will include interacting with suspects, witnesses, responding police officers…threat recognition and mind-set…management of social and psychological aftermath after having had to use lethal force in defense of self or others…and preparing beforehand for legal repercussions and minimizing exposure to them. Situations in the home, at the place of business, or “on the street” will all be covered. You can learn more, and register for the class, HERE... https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mag20-classroom-armed-citizens-rules-of-engagement-hosted-by-the-civilian-defender-tickets-55663034635 I asked Sherman how quickly folks need to commit in order to be sure that this class isn't cancelled and he said ASAP, so please don't delay.

    I don't recall if this has been mentioned here before but car guys may find this interesting. Blackstone Labs is a company that will analyze your used oil to gauge engine health. If you request a few free kits they will mail them to you. You will then send back a few ounces of used oil and they will analyze the metal content found in it. This tells me I shouldn't have any concerns keeping my wife's Rav4 a while longer. Not that I was concerned. I'll send in another sample at 175k.

    Nice! I recently put one of these on layaway. It shipped with the RMR and a threaded barrel. The red dots have definitely changed the game. Congrats.

    So....finally broke down and bought one of my bucket list guns, a CZ SP-01 Tactical (it’s the all black that basically looks like the SP-01 but a decocker instead of safety, it IS NOT the urban gray one with taller sights and threaded barrel. This will be important in a sec LOL). My question for any of those that have this one is on holster options. Almost every manufacturer offers holsters for the SP-01 and SP-01 Phantom. A lot of the research I’ve done says the tactical won’t fit the Phantom holsters, but some info says they will fit standard SP-01 holsters. Looking for someone who possibly has the Tactical to verify. Appreciate the help as always!

    I’ve posted here many times that if someone can’t handle their own family business; the cops will do it for you if you call them. You think you don’t like some of my opinions here; think about all the people that had to deal with me showing up and taking over running their family for them. Most didn’t like the outcome.

    This is a rare point where we agree on something regarding LE. Cops aren’t social workers. The general public needs to stop trying to use them as such. They’re a blunt instrument that is to be used when the application of force is required.

    Having gone through this with family members and watching friends go through it, there are far worse things than worrying about someone’s gun collection once their mind starts going. I’m sure the family has reasons for what they are doing. Of course, no one is interested in hearing that story, it wouldn’t get nearly as much discussion as the perception the government was seizing this guy’s guns. The real shame here, besides his probable condition, is that families are not aware that the Police don’t need to be involved in this. Too often they don’t know how to handle it, and because guns are involved they call the Police.

    The treebark treatment is probably one of the best stippling textures I have felt yet. I'd like to emulate that on a Glock sometime. It's not too aggressive but plenty grippy. I doubt it will tear up an undershirt but it would probably still agitate the skin if you carry it against your side without an undershirt, though. I picked this one up through The Modern Sportsman on Gunbroker. I don't mind stating the price publicly since the retailers are all pricing them identically right now it seems. $2499.95 with free shipping. I bet a guy with some contacts could get it a little cheaper. I hope you can prove me right on that.

    Sure they can. Right now a lot of them don’t want to change background checks; they want to require them for private sales. As I’m seeing the story reported a bump stock had nothing to do with this guys arrest; it was simply an additional charge after a search warrant was executed. He started playing on the phone and when they investigated him, they saw the refusals he lied on. They had him at that point.

    @hipower I think you are making a solid decision to keep this revolver. I still kick myself in the butt for not picking one up years ago. The .44 special is one of my favorite cartridges, especially to handload for, and this is one beautiful Smith imho. Of course you know you could post a pic of it...for those unfortunate souls like myself that must live vicariously through your good fortune.

    CMMG has some legit quality issues for a few years. Luckily, those were a bunch of years ago, and they seemed to have not only squared them away - but really make some nice stuff that won’t break the bank these days. I wouldn’t hesitate to own their stuff. On this particular variant running the 5.7x28, my only hesitation is those Pro-Mags. I’ve run plenty, and their quality does seem to be hit or miss.

    When I had my eyes checked several years ago, the doctor said I had presbyopia (aka "old man eyes") and just needed reading glasses. For reading a book, I needed 1.5 diopter (at that time) and 1.25 diopter for working on the computer which is my job. She directed me down the street to the "Dollar Tree" to pickup a few pair in the prescriptions required. They work fine, I have multiple pairs laying around in various locations so they are readily available, and they are inexpensive enough the I keep a few spares handy for when I eventually break them. The half-height are the ones I prefer as they are lighter and more comfortable for longer periods of use. They also fit my melon-sized head. I wear an 8 or larger in hats or a XXXL to 4X in motorcycle helmets. Just be sure to check that the lenses aren't damaged before you buy them. As you get older, your eyes will progressively get worse and will require higher diopter reading glasses. This is the way I test: Open up a word processor on your computer, type a line of text, and copy the text on multiple lines resizing one point smaller each time until you get down to tiny print. I checked mine with a magnifying glass and found that Calibri font will go down to 3 and still be clear from my laser printer. I carry this sheet with me when picking up new glasses. I test powers of glasses by holding it as if reading a book and then for the computer at just beyond arms reach which is the distance from my sitting position in the chair to my computer monitor.

    I’m sure they will; they refused to unlock the phone of a terrorist that had just killed 14 Americans and injured 22. Google on the other hand has a dilemma; they have the opportunity to possibly put some weapons owners in prison. What’s a liberal to do?

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/san-francisco-board-brands-nra-a-domestic-terrorist-organization The San Francisco Board of Supervisors has passed a resolution declaring the National Rifle Association a “domestic terrorist organization” and urged the federal government to do the same – the latest escalation in the heated rhetoric from Democrats regarding the NRA in the wake of several deadly mass shootings. The resolution, which passed Tuesday and says the U.S. is “plagued by an epidemic of gun violence,” accuses the NRA of using “its considerable wealth and organization strength to promote gun ownership and incite gun owners to acts of violence.” “All countries have violent and hateful people, but only in America do we give them ready access to assault weapons and large-capacity magazines thanks, in large part, to the National Rifle Association’s influence,” the resolution says. The document resolves to assess the relationships that those who do business with the city have with the group and says “the City and County of San Francisco should take every reasonable step to limit those entities who do business with the City and County of San Francisco from doing business with this domestic terrorist organization.” The resolution cites the July mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, in which three people were killed. KTVU reports that the resolution’s author wrote the text after that shooting. The NRA responded by calling the resolution a stunt that was distracting from the city’s myriad of social problems. "This ludicrous stunt by the Board of Supervisors is an effort to distract from the real problems facing San Francisco, such as rampant homelessness, drug abuse and skyrocketing petty crime, to name a few,” the statement said, according to KTVU. “The NRA will continue working to protect the constitutional rights of all freedom-loving Americans." The measure comes as Democrats across the country are ramping up calls to crack down on gun ownership, in response to deadly mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and western Texas. Some presidential candidates have proposed mandatory buyback programs, notably Beto O'Rourke who bluntly told reporters that would be the plan. “I want to be really clear that that’s exactly what we are going to do,” O’Rourke said. “Americans who own AR-15s, AK-47s, will have to sell them to the government.” Republicans, however, have noted that gun violence is still rampant in major cities like Chicago that have strict gun laws in place. “Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer,” Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted Monday.

    BBQ was best when it was whole hog, cooked over homegrown charcoal, laid out on old metal racks supported on rows of concrete blocks, under an open-air awning of tin and rough-sawn wood. Surrounded by dirt worn bare by generations of folks who stopped by and bought their meat pulled directly off the hog by the pound with stacks of buns and chips on an old picnic table nearby, paid in cash only ...

    https://www.aclu.org/other/how-usa-patriot-act-redefines-domestic-terrorism The definition of domestic terrorism is broad enough to encompass the activities of several prominent activist campaigns and organizations. Greenpeace, Operation Rescue, Vieques Island and WTO protesters and the Environmental Liberation Front have all recently engaged in activities that could subject them to being investigated as engaging in domestic terrorism. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domestic_terrorism Could it be those Bay Area folks are bending the rules to suit their own needs again??

    I think unless the NRA puts some new people in charge that knows what they are doing the NRA will continue to take hits like this more and more. Right now they have a bunch of spineless people in charge that all they can do is ask for their members to send them money. They ask me for donations at least twice a week but I don't see them doing anything positive to earn it.........JMHO

    "San Francisco Supervisors Vote Unanimously to Designate NRA ‘Domestic Terrorist Organization" You just can't make this stuff up. "Being stupid should hurt" was the phrase invented for stuff like this. Too bad the NRA has weakened itself and there is a good possibility it isn’t up for the fight. You would think there would be some kind of law about a government agency declaring a legit political group a terrorist organization.
