  1. It would cost more to make a quality revolver than something like a Glock I would imagine.

Great nickel, beautiful stocks, and single action trigger pull that is one of the 7 wonders of the world. This gun was produced from 1980-1999. This is from it’s first year.

  9. I have a Detonics Combat Master in .45acp made in Seattle Washington. It has two factory mags, orginal zipper case and manual. I'm asking $1275 CASH, I'll even throw in 50rnd box of Remington 230grn FMJ, and 40rnds of Federal Carry Ammo. The only trade I'm interested in is another Staccato P, or Staccato C. I live in the Whitehouse area and can meet there or Goodlettsville, and Hendersonville area, but I can drive a little to make the deal if needed. Thanks, here are some pics, please PM me any questions or if you need some more pics. I'll email them to you.

  10. Up for sale is a gem of a little Colt. This Colt comes with a factory letter showing she shipped on August 29, 1957. It is chambered in 22lr. Only about 300 of these in 22lr were produced between 1953-1957. Only 3,053 Courier’s were made and most were in .32. This gun is in excellent condition. Period correct box. The stocks are original and are numbered to the gun. You won’t see these very often if at all. If you are a Colt collector, you need this gun. Able to meet in Middle Tn or you can pick up at my 2A friendly office. I will ship as this is a C&R gun. 2100 obo.

  14. Here is a rare gem that was made from 1991-1999. This one is from 1996. It has a 3" barrel and an extra magazine. Barrel is threaded and it makes a great suppressor host. This one comes as it left the factory with box, all literature, and a soft sided zippered case. These were shipped as a promo item in the 1st 1500. Neat little gun that you don't see very often.

  15. I haven't found that to be the case but I've done literally thousands and thousands of draw and presentations with the dot on the various platforms that I own. Proprioception plays a huge role in being a fast and accurate shooter with any gun, but especially a handgun and double especially (is that a thing?) a handgun with a dot optic. Here's the thing about iron sights that people often fail to recognize when they make statements about them being faster to acquire than a red dot: Iron sights mask problems with presentation. Most people use them to "steer" the gun on tar

  16. For sale is a true gem of Americana. This is the Colt Single Action Frontier Scout 22lr revolver. Made in 1960 she sports a 4 3/4” barrel and carries 6 shots of 22lr. Wearing ‘staglite’ grips that were the factory standard of the day. This gun was made several years before the 22WMR cylinder was available. This 61 year old girl would be a great addition to your collection and one that you could actually afford to shoot Available to meet in Middle Tn or at my 2A friendly office in Brentwood. I do travel to Smithville on a regular basis. My C&R allows me to ship at buyer’s expense.

  17. Simple inflation. Rising cost for materials, labor, etc and so on. As far as I know, only Ruger has successfully created a polymer framed revolver and its butt ugly. Revolvers have gone up in price just like everything else. Then there is also the traditionalist view. Some folks just love the classic lines of a good revolver. Its just simple point and pull the trigger. No magazines, no safeties and no slide to rack. There's a quality and craftsmanship that goes into a wheelgun that no plastic fantastic could ever come near. Then there's the collectability of these fine old gu

  19. Just look at this sweet Colt 45....the Colt SAA New Frontier looks like the day she left the factory. Not a smudge or a scratch. Gorgeous wood, stunning blue, and oh those 4 Colt clicks are just perfect. What you see is what you get...perfection:) She is dated to 1965 per the Colt website. Almost as old as me and much better looking. This is a C&R gun so I can ship at buyer’s expense.This is an early 2nd generation model that is just stunning. This same gun from 1962 recently closed for 2400 on GB. I’ll list it here 1st. Would consider like-minded trades in a similar Colt SAA in 357/

  20. Thanks for tracking on it. I have just noticed that 762x39 has jumped another $100. So the pressure is increasing. I was at Bass Pro this Monday. They said they got more 9mm after a wait over a week. They are not putting it out, they are holding it back for those buying pistols. They are charging $15 per box for 9mm range ammo, and I am sure that is at a fair profit margin. So that confirms in recent time the distributors are still not the issue. FWIW, I passed on buying the ammo.

  22. For sale is a gorgeous Smith & Wesson 686-5 2 1/2” snub nose revolver wearing stunning combat stocks in lieu of the rubber ones. Gun is in superlative condition and will make a great addition to your collection. It will also be a great snub to carry and shoot. Can’t really hurt this one. It’s just that awesome. The stocks add to the cost. If you want the gun without them, I will sell the gun without them for 200.00 less. I can always use them. They are that good.

  23. For sale is a Sig p232 .380 pistol with Karl Nille wooden grips. The grips alone sell for over 200.00. This gun is mint. It has been a safe queen and might have 4 mags through her. Absolutely drop dead gorgeous. James Bond would be envious. Comes with factory box and all paperwork. Sig collectors should not miss this. I’m listing these nicer guns here before anywhere else to give my TGO brethren a chance at some really nice pieces.

  24. Ar10 308 Trijicon 35mm reap ir thermal The thing on the side is a Silencerco radius. At night your ability to judge distance is greatly diminished. The radius is a LRF that can be adjusted to the crosshairs of the scope. Anything I see gets ranged. If we are hunting with any NV guys, I use the IR laser pulses to point out targets so everyone knows what and were to shoot. I also run an ir strobe sometimes depending on what we are hunting and who we are hunting with.

  25. About 7-8 years ago my Springfield 1911A1 developed a crack in the lower barrel lug. This is my IDPA gun and at the time had had an estimated 30,000+ rounds of hardball through it. Springfield paid shipping both ways and IIRC the gun was fixed and back to me in 8 days. I've also contacted them about small things for used guns I've bought. Such as a missing screw or the take down tool for my Ultra-Compact. Every time they sent what I needed at no charge and it arrived within just a few days. Springfield has some of the best customer service of any gun company. No worries there.

  28. Like new, in the original box...with all paperwork, warranty card, and cleaning tools, this little beauty is around 53 years old.

Available to meet in Middle Tn...or you can drop by my 2A friendly office in Brentwood. This is a C&R gun so I can ship it anywhere at buyer’s expense.

  29. Up for sale is a gorgeous Smith & Wesson 12-2 Airweight revolver. This little gem hails from 1974....a scant 47 years ago. Wish I looked this good at 47:) The original stocks are numbered to the gun. It’s been shot maybe 100 rounds. The previous owner hadn’t shot it in at least the last 20 years. This has the pinned barrel which was discontinued several years later. Shoots the ever popular 38 Special round. Wonderful case coloring on both the trigger and the hammer. Available in Middle Tennessee for meet, or you are welcome to come to my office (I own the building and it’s 2A friendly

  31. Nothing about the current permit process actually gives me any warm feelings about those people being trained. Your concerns, while valid, haven't caused any problems in the 9-10 states that now have constitutional carry. Vermont has been this way for decades and it hasn't led to any major issues that I'm aware of. I don't see any increased risk to the public by moving to constitutional carry. And if there are risks, they should be accepted in a free society. Much like requiring someone to get a drivers license doesn't make them a safe driver. I'd be all for scrapping that requirement to

  37. I wanted to come back to this comment albeit not entirely from the perspective of finding the dot reticle in the dark but just in general regarding the size of the window glass. In terms of days/months/years, I have spent a longer period of time behind a Trijicon RMR RM07 Type 2. This is the one with the 6.5MOA dot. I really do like that larger dot for handguns. That said, I have also had a gen-1 Holosun HE508T for about two years now and recently added both the new gen-2 Holosun HE508T-X2 and a 507K-X2 to my pile of optics. The 507K is their new smaller optic. It's smaller than

  39. Young eyes or old eyes, it takes a lot of dry fire practice to reliably get that red dot in your field of view on presentation. And, you've got to get that squared away before you consider moving to trusting it for EDC. But, what it actually highlights for most people is the training scars that they've acquired through years of maybe less than ideal practice. So, going through the dry fire process a lot will actually be working to correct some of those old scars with new, better ones. They're worth putting the time into.

  40. So my new AR-15 arrived (finally) after being lost in the FedEx package backlog from the winter storms. It is a left handed build with a Stag Arms upper and a PSA lower. Only iron sights at the moment. Trying to decide on a reddot or other optic. I can’t wait to get to the range.

  41. I've written about red dot optics on handguns many, many times here on TGO. They are the way forward. Period. I probably have more money invested in dot optics and having slides milled for them than most folks have in handguns. I own more than a few and I have spent countless hours getting pretty good with them and good at teaching people to use them effectively. They aren't a fad and they aren't a niche anymore. They've become mainstream because they work and they are a vast improvement over iron sights. And as long as you stay with proven brands like Trijicon and Holosun, they

  42. Make sure you rent a pistol with a red dot sight so you can try them out first. I personally don't like them. But if I were to get one I'd go with a pistol milled out from the factory. I'd stay away from aftermarket milling places. Stick with Factory and you cant go wrong.

It left little pieces of metal buried deep within the plexiglass shield that was being used for safety. I can’t imagine they’d be able to pick those pieces out of your eyes - and cornea transplants aren’t any fun.

  45. We've dropped below 2000 deaths per day (7 day moving average) for the first time in 78 days. There are generally 5 things that the drop is attributed to - these are cumulative (they all work together): 1. By far the biggest - hospitalizations have been reduced to the point where there is better capacity to keep you alive. It sounds crazy when you make this a supply chain issue - but fewer available beds and taxed staff will result in more deaths. All other things equal - you're a lot more likely to leave the hospital alive right now than you were in December. 2. Warming tempe
