  1. Than moving a 400lb gun safe by yourself? I had help getting it onto the trailer but after that it was ALL me. Unloading, standing it up & moving it around the garage all by myself. At 63, I'm TOO old for this crap anymore! Having said all that, I did get it done. Never again!

  3. Introducing Shane Kerwin and Personal Survival Solutions: As most of you know, I am a firm believer in getting good training from reputable and knowledgeable educators with experience in firearms safety, effective and responsible use of firearms for personal protection, risk avoidance and de-escalation techniques, unarmed combat and personal emergency medical skills. It is very rare to find a person who can educate on more than one or two of those concepts at a high level of proficiency. That is not to say there is anything wrong with finding a person who is an expert in any one facet of "preparedness", but rather to point out that while we all endeavor to be well-rounded practitioners, it is difficult to find people who are far enough down that road themselves that they can effectively instruct others. Often times, the people who operate at that level of proficiency come to us from highly trained, highly specialized units of military service or law enforcement. Shane Kerwin, founder of Personal Survival Solutions, is such a person. Mr. Kerwin served in the US Army's 3rd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group as a junior Medical Sergeant. During his 16-year tenure with 5th Group, Shane served as junior and senior Medical Sergeant, Company senior Medical Sergeant, Special Operations Target Interdiction Course (SOTIC), senior Cadre and Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge, Company Operations Sergeant, and Detachment Operations Sergeant (Team Sergeant). During his time with 5th Group, he deployed 7 times in the Global War on Terrorism and has additional deployments under his belt. Now operating in the civilian sector, Shane Kerwin is bringing intensive, realistic and proven skills and concepts to the rest of us. He has made it his new mission to help regular people protect themselves and increase the security of their families by imparting what he has learned on the topics of Mindset, Weapons, Skills, Equipment and Environment. The ultimate goal is to teach you to make good critical decisions to mitigate threats and respond to an increasingly dangerous world. I hope that you will not only join me in welcoming Mr. Kerwin and PSS to our community, but that you will click over to their website, learn more about what he has to offer, and sign up for a class or two. Maybe we'll end up in one together. Website: https://www.personalsurvivalsolutions.com

  8. I got a CVA Staghorn .50 caliber with a Simmons 3x-9x 32mm that was a real dog on everything else but, worked good on this rifle. Go figure? I've had it for 20 years or so. But, I'm leaning on using my H&R Huntsman .58 caliber. It needed some work earlier, and I got it all fixed. I've not shot it in a long time but, am going to try it in a few days hopefully.

  9. Harris Combative Strategies Defensive Concepts for Low Light Environments Date: Friday October 22 Time: 5:30PM - 12AM Eastern Time Location: The Ridge Dayton TN. (http://www.theridgeshooting.com/) Price $160 ($50 Deposit to hold spot - See details below). Instructor: Randy Harris Instructor BIO THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER CLASS . Students should be able to safely load, unload, draw from a holster and safely handle their pistol in close proximity to other people. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PLEASE CONTACT RANDY AND DISCUSS YOUR PREVIOUS SHOOTING EXPERIENCE. This class will cover some critical skills which include shooting with and without the help of flashlights in low or no light. We will work both proactively challenging unknown potential threats and also reacting to unexpected close range attacks in low light settings. You will see just how much light you really need to accurately shoot by and how much light you actually need to ID targets. We will also cover manipulating the pistol in the dark both with and without a light in our hands. We will load , unload and clear malfunctions with and without flashlights. A fair amount of time will also be devoted to using the flashlight as a tool to help you get deselected in the "pre fight interview" , use the light as a distraction device and impact weapon, and as a bridge from less lethal to lethal force. Range Gear and requirements : Handheld flashlight (Surefire 6P, G2, Streamlight Scorpion or similar). Extra batteries. Pistol and holster designed to be worn on the belt. Two spare mags (3 total minimum) and a mag pouch. Range Safety gear (eye and ear protection) . Clothing appropriate for weather. Snacks and drinks. You are welcome to bring something to eat for dinner. There are also several close fast food places like Taco Bell or Subway to grab something if you chose to do that during our dinner break. Ammo: Approximately 150 rounds. If you want to shoot more you are certainly welcome to bring more and shoot more but we will be focusing on shooting with accountability not mag dumps. If you have a weapon mounted light for your pistol and want to use it for some drills then please bring it too. If your carry pistol has a light that is fine too just make sure it fits your holster. If you have a "blue gun" or airsoft gun and training knife or inert "trainer" pepper spray you want to bring feel free to do so. We will be doing some interactive exercises where students will play the role of both good guys and bad guys to get a better feel for just what each experiences when the techniques are applied in low light. If you don't see it from both sides you only know about half of what is going on.  I can take a $50 deposit through either Venmo, Paypal or by check mailed to me or over the phone with a CC (+3%). A $50 deposit will hold a spot for you in this class. Balance due at class. You are also welcome to pay in full in advance too. We are limiting it to 16 students. To register or for more info either PM me here at TGO or email me at Randy@harriscombative.com. Deposit Payments can be made with a check (contact Randy for details) or through... Credit Card payments accepted (contact Randy for info) Venmo at www.venmo.com/Randy-Harris-47 Paypal at Cruelhandluke2000@yahoo.com (+3% or use friends & family option with no fee)

  11. Once it’s upright and you have to move it on a flat floor, use a handful of golf balls underneath and you can move it by yourself. Just tip it a bit and roll the balls under. On carpet it keeps you from wading the carpet up. It just rolls. I have moved my 48 gun safe by myself twice. I’m 64 youngin’. Move is another 4 letter word!

  17. Wish I had taken better pictures of the prep process, but I didn't because I've done it so many times it's not really fascinating. I did it a little different this time though. Sanded what I could with 80 grit, then used a citrus stripper. After that I washed it with Dawn, then slathered another heavy coat of Dawn on and let it sit over night. This morning I rinsed it off, then let it sit in hot water, changing the water out every hour of so until there were no suds or color from the old stain in the water. The Dawn did a really good job lifting out the oil stains around the receiver. After cleaning it up, I found a hairline crack in the wrist of the stock. To my knowledge there isn't a lot that can be done to that other than reinforcing, so I cleaned the area really well and put Gorilla Glue in it and worked it into the crack with a straight pin. It should expand into the crack as it dries. Currently everything is sanded to 150 and the glue is drying. I'll go a final sanding at 300 grit. Wipe down with mineral spirits, and start the Tru Oil process.

  18. Thanks for the help. That is a little different that what I need. That’s a barrel band and the piece I need is the cap at the end of the stock. It’s an either or on the marlins depending on what forend you have.

  19. Oh, I didn't even mention my loads. In the Staghorn I've had good luck with 350 gr. Maxi-Hunters, using Triple 7 and 209 primers. And in the Huntsman I'm gonna try round balls and Triple 7.

  29. So, I’m 5’6, 170 lbs ish. My clothes aren’t tight, but aren’t baggy either. I can conceal my G29 better than my G19. The shorter grip really makes it a breeze to carry. won’t lie, it has significantly more felt recoil than the 20 does, but that is par for the course. Shoot it a few times and you figure out how to handle it. Another option is a chest holster, which would hold either the 20 or 29. That puts the gun in a different place that may be more comfortable for your needs. Also still easily concealed under a jacket if needed. I will say, the 29 is a touch wider, it is tight in my G20 holsters.

  30. Good info about the 29. The 20 has too much grip length and barrel for me to sit normally in a vehicle or conceal it. I feel like I’m trying to hide a fire extinguisher under my shirt lol. In the woods or on the trail, I like the full size. Good to hear that you rank the 29 up there with the 19 because I think very highly of the 19 as well. I read somewhere that the 29 carries like a heavier 19. Do you find that to be the case also? What holster do you carry it in? I need to go put my hands one one. I just have to be prepared for it to follow me home if I do lol

  31. Yes there is a considerable size difference between the 20 and the 29. I feel I can conceal the 29 if I want to but with the 20 that was nearly impossible. Of course the 20 is a little more pleasant to shoot but I don't think the 29 is hard to handle or too small. The 29 is one of my absolute favorite Glocks. That and the 19 are the two Glocks I will not sell. I'd encourage you to grab one you will not be disappointed

If anyone has a magazine, a pic of the mag follower button would be greatly appreciated. Finally, if anyone knows where these parts can be purchased, other than ebay, please let me know. Thanks.

  41. Location is Murfreesboro off 840 and 24. Electronic and cash payments accepted. Not really looking for trades and don’t want to drive crazy far to sell it. Continuing to clean out the safe and get rid of stuff I’m not using. Unknown round count, but I generally grab my MP5s when I want to blaze through 9MM, hence the sale of the CZ. Given the size and ease to ship, I’m going to cross post this one on other forums, but would prefer a local gets it for ease of transfer. CZ Scorpion Evo 3 S1 converted to a Micro by HB Industries before the CZ Micro existed. They did the conversion for me when I lived on Arizona, where they are located. https://hbindustries.net/store/shop/cz-scorpion-microk-conversion-kit/ Measures 15” overall and takes side folding braces or stocks (if SBR’d). Fits in a small backpack. HB Industries 5.3” barrel Fortis 9MM muzzle brake HB Industries MLOK handguard HB Industries trigger, breaks crisp at 4.75 lbs (factory included) HB Industries extended mag release (factory included) QD front and rear sling swivels. Matterhorn pistol grip Factory safety on left, HB AK style on right (other safety options includedin baggies) A3 tactical angled grip- ugly as sin, but super functional in this configuration Magazines included: (16) CZ 30 round mags (9) Manticore Arms 32 round mags (4) CZ 20 round mags Available for purchase NOT included: Trijicon MRO red dot in low mount. I have the box for it. Not taking off for pictures so I keep zero. (10) Magpul 32 round mags Also, this is a registered SBR on a form 4, but it is being sold as a pistol. Upon completion of the sale, I will send a letter to the ATF to ask them to remove it from the NFA registry. That said, it has been physically reverted to a pistol and can be sold as one without any delays or hassle. Asking $1200 for the package (doesn’t include pictured MRO)
