  1. Generally I perform the Burwell DIY sear modification on my M&Ps. Usually, that's all that's necessary to get the trigger to a point I can live with. www.burwellguns.com/M&Ptriggerjob1.htm
  2. ATF won't issue a license unless you are in compliance with local zoning codes and such. If you can't get a business license where you are, you probably can't get an FFL either (C&R 03 FFL excluded).
  3. True, but knowing is half the battle. I'd rather know it's happening immediately rather than 8 hours later. And you can also buy a remote control water valve too, I believe.
  4. You can buy water alarms that are wireless enabled and can send you an email or text if they detect water. I'm looking into that for my own water heater.
  5. I received my gauge and my bolt checked out OK. S&W will send you a bolt gauge for free, but you can make one out of a piece of metal .035" thick or use a small feeler gauge. If the gauge sits flush to the bolt face, you're good. If it sits proud of the bolt face, it needs to go back.
  6. Did you mean Double Action Only on the PX4?
  7. You might want to list this over at 1911addicts.com.
  8. I never jumped into the piston AR parade because 1) the design is necessarily proprietary, 2) if I wanted something different, it was not going to be an AR, and 3) the potential performance increase just wasn't there. Nothing against pistons per se, but in the AR it never lit my fire.
  9. Most of my ARs will do around 1.5 MOA with halfway decent (M193) ammo, provided a good trigger, good scope and a bench. My 6.5 Grendel will do that with Wolf steel cased ammo, and well under 1 MOA with decent (e.g. Hornady) loads. That's good enough for me, since I no longer bother to load 5.56 for maximum accuracy. Most of my ARs are kind of like AKs, I tend to shoot the cheapest crap I can get away with.
  10. I hate to hear that, though I wish I could say I was surprised. The best performing Taurus designs I've heard are the PT92 and the PT111 G2. As to the shipping cost, about 10-15 years ago the carriers implemented a policy that handguns must go next day air, thus the premium cost. FFLs can still use USPS to ship handguns more reasonably, but A) it's only for FFL-to-FFL and B ) It's USPS

    Sig 365 ?

    On the mag loader: the UPLULA is the best money I ever spent on a pistol accessory. It loads nearly everything I have except for some smaller pocket pistol mags and .22 LR mags. Even loads the P365 mags.

    Sig 365 ?

    Someday came this week and I picked one up and put about 50 rounds through it today. It is the most accurate pistol of its size that I own. There is nothing I don't like about the features or design. I find the extended pinky rest floor plate useless and would rather have 2 flush fit mags because this will be a pocket gun.

    There's a shop in Memphis who has them in stock for $450. I'm still planning on picking one up someday.
  14. I have this one and it works pretty well for most guns, front and rear sights. There are some designs it won't work on just because the sights won't line up with the pusher block, but that's par for the course on most sight pushers. It was well worth the money. http://a.co/d/bPcH1Tf The only complaint I have is that everything is done with hex set screws, which takes a while to get the pusher set up for the gun. Just a lot of fiddling and adjustment.
  15. Not that I've ever had to; in fact, I'd say the Brown I own is flawless. But you can't even talk about Brown with other 1911 guys without someone moaning about Brown being mean to him on the phone.
