  1. Recently purchased a Holosun 507cV2 to try out. Mainly due to Holosun's pretty good recent reviews and lower cost since it is my first try out of red dots on pistols. One reputable training company that I somewhat follow has been working with red dot pistols for sometime basically recommends RMR's and then Holosuns. However other red dots out there may work fine. Good Luck!
  2. In the personal protection world of what equipment to arm yourself with, one of the hardest feats to accomplish is to "buy once cry once". That seldom happens. Personal preference changes as experience is acquired. Excellent comments from personal experience have been uploaded to this thread and I agree red dots can fail at anytime and the "KISS" principle is a good thing in high stress situations. Seems like a 1/3 co-witness with black rear / tritium front would be a good option. Fairly simple and would not clutter the field of view very much but still provide some reasonable low light aiming
  3. Thanks for the comments guys. Thanks mamcdonald for taking the time to load up the pics. They give a good representative sight picture with co-witness sights. The black co/witness looks pretty good especially when the sights would be for emergency back-up use. I’ll be mounting a Holosun 507c using a CH Precision V4 adapter plate. Will give it some more thought. Thinking it will be easier to change sights before mounting the red dot.
  4. Being I have no experience with shooting red dots on pistols, I thought I would ask some questions on the forum concerning BUIS setup in conjunction with red dots mounted on a pistol intended for personal protection use. I see three basic options. (1) Keep the factory iron sights which become mostly unusable. (2) Switch BUIS to approximate lower 1/3rd co-witness black iron sights. (3) Switch to co-witness sights with tritium front / black rear or tritium both front and rear. I'm leaning towards the black co-witness if I can find a set that will be close to a lower 1/3 witness height. Tritium f
  5. I have Four US Palm 30rd AK 7.62x39 mags for sale. Mags are new and in original packaging. Metal reinforced lugs. Two brown and two black. Asking $50 shipped. PRICE DROP to $40
  6. Have up for sale three factory Ruger magazines for sale. Two twenty rd mags for Mini 14 and one 20 rd mag for the Mini 30. The mini 14 mags are used but in very good condition. The mag on the right shows a little finish wear on the mag catch while the one on the left has very little. The finish has no scratches, followers and feed lips smooth and straight. These mags have been stored unloaded. The mag on the left may be an earlier build date than the one on the right. The Mini 30 mag appears unused and is in original factory plastic case. It was purchased at a gun show so cannot say for 100%
  7. The intent of HR127 is to "To provide for the licensing of firearm and ammunition possession and the registration of firearms, and to prohibit the possession of certain ammunition". Universal registration/licensing of gun owners and their guns is a main part of the bill. I think a large number of US senators and reps do not view the bill as "radical". They view it as absolutely necessary "whatever it takes". The democrats in the US House and Senate are pretty good as circling the wagons.
  8. I like to think that I am an optimist. With that said I also believe HR127 could very well pass and sooner than we think. Since Democrats are in total control and will do “what ever it takes” it’s a real possibility. Not an exact quote but close I heard on the news recently, “if you don’t get involved in politics you are destined to be governed by your inferiors”. Interesting statement.
  9. I have a SOE Load Bearing Tactical Vest for sale. SOE gear is American made in Camden, TN and is the finest quality molly gear available IMO. No comparison with BDS and the China made gear. A SOE hydration/accessory pouch with 80 oz camelbak bladder is included with the vest. This vest is made from heavy duty material, well stitched with significant padding in the shoulder straps. Has two zipper access pouches on the inside of the front/side panels. Has adjustments for size. The equipment is in new condition and unused. Asking $165 shipped.
  10. I would like to see TN pass a strong 2nd sanctuary law prior to Fed legislation. As well as other red states. I think it would help. The gun control legislation being talked about and actually filed (ie bill introduced by Rep Shiela Jackson Lee) will basically make the 2nd Amendment null and void. A part of the Bill of Rights taken out by legislation alone. No State action. The quest to protect our countries 2nd Amendment rights is heating up.
  11. Thanks for the update. Please explain how this proposed legislation wording could help in protecting TN citizens from the Fed gun apocalypse coming down the pike. IMO a strong stand alone sanctuary law is paramount to be passed and soon. USA may not have a 2nd Amendment very long from now. All red states should have passed one yesterday!
