  1. Didn't the VT500 originally come with a rectangular headlight? That was such an '80s feature. This one looks much nicer than the VT500s I remember.
  2. I have the basic model with a Vortex red dot. It's everything Garufa says it is. Totally fun. Cheers, Whisper
  3. If it has a capacity of six rounds, why does it have a cylinder with only five chambers? Wondering, Whisper
  4. I still have a Rockchucker and use it occasionally, but if you shoot in much volume you will want a progressive press like the Dillon 500 series, which is what I most often use. It will cover almost all handguns and the most common medium length rifle cases (mine won't do .45-70, for instance). I agree with Grayfox 54 that looking for used equipment is a good idea -- I've seen some remarkable deals. Good luck, Whisper
  5. I've had good luck with my Kodiak and would recommend it without hesitation. Cheers, Whisper
  6. Last I checked, the UK and Japan aren't the same as Austria. My point, perhaps too subtle for you to follow, was that it's ridiculous for an Austrian to claim the US can't make great products anymore. Many countries, including Austria and the US, have different areas of industrial excellence, and areas where they are less competitive with other nations. Austria, for example, imports most of its food, while the US leads the world in food exports. Not surprisingly, US agricultural equipment (especially John Deere and Case) also leads the world. The US is also the global leader in construction and mining equipment (Caterpillar). Five of the top 10 medical device manufacturers in the world are American. And while I'm sure the Austrian military is proud of its Glocks, guess which country makes the Huey, Kiowa, and Blackhawk helicopters and the C-130 transport planes used by the Austrian Air Force? Just because it's popular in some circles to say the US can't make anything nowadays, that doesn't make it true. Cheers, Whisper
  7. P365 with 10-round mag for pocket carry, or P365XL for appendix carry, depending on what I'm doing that day, plus a pocket knife of some kind (most often Swiss Army), POM pepper spray, and Streamlight Microstream.
  8. Hmm. I'm sitting here trying to think of great Austrian medical advances of the past 25 years, and wondering where there's a dealership that sells Austrian cars, and for some reason nothing comes to mind.
  9. Their website says yes: Red Dot Optic Cut (glockstore.com) Cheers, Whisper
  10. It's interesting to read this about the new ones. I've always heard that the earlier ones were jammomatics that, when they fired, would eject their superexpensive brass into low earth orbit. If they've finally gotten these guns to work after so many years, it would be fun to try one. Cheers, Whisper
  11. Hmm. Glockstore in Nashville will mill a slide for an RMR for $200. You won't get an OEM slide for that amount.
  12. I see this is a Liberty Model, i.e., made in 1976. Nice. One of you folks needs to buy this. Cheers, Whisper
  13. Welcome. CA is a beautiful state, but its leaders have created too many problems for me to ever consider living there, and I fully understand why you would prefer a place like TN. Hope you enjoy it here. Cheers, Whisper
  14. I'd SBR one of my .300 AAC rifles, get an SBS of some kind, get an MP5, and put cans on a rifle and a .45 ACP handgun. If only.... Cheers, Whisper
  15. There's an Enigma group on Facebook that contains much good information and is tightly moderated to prevent disruption by a**wipes. Worth a look if you are on Facebook. I have purchased an Enigma and am still experimenting with it. It requires some tinkering to get it exactly right, with regard to ride height and placement in the spot that will yield maximum concealment for your particular body. The makers don't try to hide this and admit that the Enigma isn't the answer for everyone. I have mine about to the point where I'm ready to make it my EDC but haven't quite made that jump yet. Cheers, Whisper
  16. I've been attending gun shows since about 1975 and have been present for two negligent discharges of handguns, but never for a flare gun. It must have been...enlightening.
  17. Another vote for Bellshire Hardware. I did many transfers through Phil when I lived in Nashville. Cheers, Whisper
  18. These are great guns with surprisingly controllable recoil and impressive accuracy. The best of the small .45s, IMO. Cheers, Whisper
  19. Nice gun. But I sort of wish it was a beater, so I could make a few mods without feeling like I was restoring the Mona Lisa with Magic Markers. Cheers, Whisper
  20. I'm saved by you being in Dickson. If you were ever to make a road trip to Chattanooga, however, the temptation would be strong. Hope you find a local buyer. Cheers, Whisper
  21. As Chucktshoes has hinted at in a most diplomatic fashion, most of these issues you've identified are already well known to us here, and are things we've been trying to improve for years. (Except for the lack of BLM land -- there's none in Tennessee.) The TFA has helped a lot on most of the political issues you mention. Lend a hand, especially if you plan to stay here with us. Cheers, Whisper
  22. Welcome. I think you'll find it's easy to indulge all your hobbies here. Cheers, Whisper
  23. That's a decent deal. I hate that you're so far away. But then, since I'm saving up for something else, maybe I don't. Cheers, Whisper
