  1. No worries, it will get better once you're a permanent resident. They may even let you have special toys with permission from the ATF. (I've got two tax stamps.... which reminds me, I need to file for a couple more suppressors. Hopefully there's no Coronavirus shortage of those yet...)
  2. Once the conditional status has been removed, and a proper I-551 is issued, it is only valid for 10 years. You gotta renew it like you renew your drivers license. (A pretty simple and painless procedure. Thankfully the immigration office in Nashville can handle those. I'm glad they opened that... no more trips to Memphis... yay!). In other words, there is no permanent Permanent Resident card. The Permanent Resident cards have a 10 year expiration date. The "conditional" status has nothing to do with the type of card or its expiration date. Yes, the temp card is only valid for two years. But the actual "status" is in your file (erm.... or "record"... welcome to the 21st century, Obiwan...)
  3. All the laws I've seen talk about Citizens and Permanent Residents. A conditional status does not grant you permanent residence. (Otherwise you wouldn't need to go back for another interview to get the conditional status removed, and a get a new and proper Permanent Residency card). You're more like a temporary resident until the conditional status is removed if your condition is satisfactory (for example, still married to a US citizen). Unfortunately, I don't have that temp card anymore, nor my first Green Card (which was pink I believe... the second was white, and the current is green). Still got the old I-688B though. Gawd, what a horrible picture. Not like the current one is any better though... Anyway, if you can't wait until the conditional status is removed, contact an attorney to find out for sure. But I'm reasonable sure that you'll have to wait.
  4. I don't recall ever phrasing it like that, but yes, I do love my CZ75 compact (PCR). Of course, I do love all my other CZ's, but the compact is likely the most perfect carry-gun ever.
  5. For someone local in Clarksville, there Clevinger. Sorry, no personal experience with them.
  6. Manny reports from SHOT show.
  7. Wait... they didn't Google it on their smart phones?
  8. Interesting. I thought the frame issues were only with the .40S&W version, not the 9mm. Anyway, regrading the trigger pin, that's very common. Mine was fine after several hundred rounds after purchase. But after having punched it out for the first time (for polish work on trigger bar, etc), it never seated reliably. The solution is to get the floating trigger pin from CGW. I got it in all my CZ pistols. It removes any worries about the pin walking. It's one of the must-have upgrades, just like more comfortable triggers. (The RAMI's trigger is known for being uncomfortable to many).
  9. I installed the under-desk safe from V-Line in my vehicle under the driver seat. Works pretty good. You can't remove it without taking the seat out, so stealing my gun won't be a quick smash'n'grab affair.

    My Mother

    I'm sorry for your loss.
  11. My condolences for your loss. While your wounds will heal, a scar will remain. Which is good. When you "touch" that scar, and remember the good days with Mario, you will realize that these little furballs have found a way to live on forever. Even if just in your heart and mind. He'll always be on your side.
  12. Hot from the production floor. Another Manny Mansfield... (I laughed out loud when the bullets fell off the target paper)
  13. I always wondered about how to hide the clip of an IWB holster, and recently got an idea (that I haven't put to the test yet). If the holster has only one clip, buy a Leatherman (or other brand) tool with leather belt pouch. Drill a small hole into the upper part of the clip and the Leatherman pouch. Attach the pouch with a rivet to the clip. Now people will see you're carrying a Leatherman, and the clip is obviously to hold your multi-tool on your belt. If the gun doesn't print, would this fool even folks who carry and know what to look for? It just might. I need to order a couple more clips for my holsters and will get an extra one to drill and try out.
  14. Something on the lighter side:
  15. If the slide is like that of a CZ75, you don't even need to drill. When I installed F/O sights on my 75, I used a triangular jewelers file to file a groove into the underside of the front sight (in the appropriate spot after inserting and marking it). Filing a groove seemed much more ... uhm.... controlled .... to me and my clumsy hands than drilling with a drill bit. The groove works just as well and holds the sight tight. Just to be clear. Punch out the pin. Remove the old sight. Insert new sight. Mark the spot to be drilled/filed (I think I used a needle to scratch the location on the sight through the hole on both sides). Remove front sight, file a groove into it. Re-insert front sight, then punch the pin back in. Make sure you go easy on the filing and try occasionally. Don't remove too much or the sight will be loose.
