    I'm surprised TT Gunleather doesn't make something for that.
  2. Check with your nearby Music City Pawn Shop. I use Music City Pawn almost exclusively for FFL transfers and am 99% sure I have used them for a private-party transfer before.
  3. You might be right. I've considered that as a possibility. It's a really hard pill for a lot of people to even contemplate swallowing.
  4. Easy there, chief. No need to get dramatically butthurt about my comment. If you're right about it not making a difference, a lot of people who've been running dots longer than either one of us need to be told that they're wrong. I'm glad you're happy with the setup. I'm sure it suffices for pleasure or competition shooting. I wouldn't run it for combatives, but that's just me and... like... practically everyone else I know that sets up their guns for duty/serious use.
  5. I'd challenge you to re-think the statement to be "They are upset because an elected politician is telling them what to do" and strike the party line out of it. People, in general, are starting to become very tired of elected representatives acting like ordained directors or dictators. It's happening with elected representatives across party lines, but is perhaps more prevalent in the Democrat side of the problem.
  6. I'm going to throw out a very unpopular opinion: 2A Supporters are either a silent majority or a vocal minority, and if it's the former of the two... the silent majority is screwing the rest of us. The media panders hard left but that's because the hard left is a hell of a vocal group. If the 2A supporters, regardless of political affiliation, were vocal enough and large enough of a group, the media would likely pander that direction. The media needs money and their money comes from advertising ... when it isn't coming from George Soros. They'll follow whichever group generates the most revenue for them. If we're actually just a vocal minority, it's time for us to start adopting minority tactics. One of the most effective minority tactics is to be an inconvenient pain in the establishment's ass until it can't ignore them anymore.
  7. To each their own, but damn. Most folks want their RDS set as low in the slide as possible.
  8. Pro Tip: Don't fall for the lies of no-line / progressie bifocal lenses. They are much harder to use with a red dot sight and maintain a crisp clear dot. Use traditional bifocals with distinct single-vision areas.
  9. Consider too that the machette is not exactly a "stabbing" kind of weapon. These people got slashed and hacked.
  10. Devil's Advocate Post: I hear that these folks aren't helping further or preserve the 2A. Who is and what are they doing that is expanding the appeal of the 2A?
  11. Between the two of us, I expected this sort of tomfoolery from me ... not you, Bill.
  12. No experience with them but the MR920 was on my short list. I know that John Lovell likes them and has adopted them as the platform on which his War Poet line of pistols is made. I hear nothing but good things.
  13. I just started watching your video, so I will make an additional point: Zero your gun for the ammo you will use the most often for whichever purpose you bought the gun. Different ammo from different manufacturers will generally print differently on target. Dial it in for your ideal ammo, then understand how to adjust your hold for the other ammo you tend to use. Example: I carry Federal HST 124gr 9mm. I zero my RDS for that at 15yds. I know how to adjust my hold (POA) for the desired point of impact (POI) at distances closer and further. I also know how to adjust my hold if I am shooting 115gr Fiocchi FMJ at the range, or 115gr Magtech, or 115gr Winchester, etc. I don't adjust my dot for those. I adjust my hold. I leave my dot zeroed for my carry ammo. I also accept that there may be variances in each round of my preferred carry ammo due to manufacturing tolerances. At the distances I expect accuracy of myself and the gun, those variances generally don't amount to much on target.
  14. RDS should be parallax free. There should be no difference between shooters except for the shooters themselves. With that in mind, if you are zeroing your RDS to compensate for jerking the trigger - you are really just enabling bad form. It may work for you at the distance you're zeroing it at, but you will again be inaccurate as that distance changes. With a handgun the difference won't be signfiicant due to the overall shorter distances at which we generally shoot them, but there will be a difference. Also, what group size are you aspiring for? If you are grouping your shots within a 5-inch circle of each other, at a reasonably quick pace, at a reasonable distance for self-defense purposes... maybe just accept that it is what it is. If you are trying to thread the eye of the needle at 15-25 yards and cloverleaf your shots, then you need to focus on your grip and your trigger press then worry about dialing in the dot.
  15. I am admittedly stuck on Glock and Glock-like handguns. With more than 25 years of experience with them, carrying them, shooting them, etc. I am just not going to get away from them anytime soon. Lord knows I've tried. Not because there's anything wrong with them, but because I like new experiences as much as the next guy does. THIS however is not a Glock. There's nothing Glock about it. Not a single Glock part rests within it. It is 100% Zev Technologies from stem to stern, including every little piece and spring within it. Hence the O and Z in OZ9. Original Zev. Not a Glock. It is however familiar in many ways to a Glock shooter, albeit with the dial turned up to eleven and then ripped off, thrown in your face, kicked out the window, and stomped upon outside on the sidewalk. Zev amped it up like they hated that dial and it owed them money. This particular configuration is very similar to my beloved Glock G45. It has the compact G19 length barrel and slide, with the G17 length grip. Unlike a Glock it has a 1911-esque grip angle and uses a serialized internal chassis much like the Sig p320 does. The chassis is a solid hunk of machined metal that contains Zev's take on a Glock-style sear, their fantastic trigger and trigger bar, the rails upon which the slide moves, and I guess an ounce of black magic. All it takes is pushing out one small pin to remove the chassis from the grip module and turn this into a G19 sized compact gun. Which I've done for summer carry. It shoots like a dream. The trigger clocks in at 2.69 LBS on Lyman gauge averaged across 5 pulls. It tracks smoothly under recoil and doesn't move an iota off target unless YOU move it. If you miss, it's the shooter - not the gun. You just have to own that fact and accept it. I've heard my friend Dr. Sherman House ask another shooter if their Zev OZ9 was really all that or if it was just a Camry with nice wheels. FUNNY! I had the same questions as I considered buying it. But, I'm glad to say it's got the goods to back up the sticker price. This is very much a Porsche wearing a Camry suit. There are dumber ways to spend $1500. I dig the hell out of it.
  16. I absolutely agree. If I didn't have two of them, this wouldn't be for sale.
  17. SOLD: Glock G45 9mm with Extras You are looking at what is essentially a spare Glock 45 that I feel that I no longer have a need to retain. I purchased two of these, had one highly modified for my purposes, and left this one mostly stock. Low round count. I would guesstimate less than 500 rounds through it. Perfect in every way. These are rare to find for sale on the secondary market, so I anticipate that it should go quickly. I will leave the ad up through Memorial Day - if it lasts that long. After Memorial Day, I am taking the ad down and returning this to my safe. Firearm includes: Original packaging with three mags and assortment of grip backstraps Zev Curved Face Pro Trigger with Upgraded Trigger Bar Frank Proctor Y-Notch Sights with fiber optic front and plain black rear Retail on this gun is $540 plus tax and TICS. Zev trigger upgrade is another $130. Frank Proctor sights are another $80. Total cost to reproduce this would be right at $750. Selling for $625 Knock $50 off if you don't want the trigger and want me to put the stock Glock trigger back in it. Terms of Sale: Local pickup in Spring Hill / Franklin area Cash only. No trades. No checks. No electronic payments. If you are not someone I've dealt with before, you'll show me your Tennessee carry permit card. First person to put cash in my hand gets it. I will not hold it for anyone. I am not interested in shipping it. Price is low as is. Not looking to haggle or reduce the cost in any way. My time is in short supply these days so I am looking for the least headache in a transaction. Counteroffers are headaches. More photos follow.
  18. Leaving this ad up for the remainder of this week. It goes away in Saturday and the gun goes back into the safe.
  19. I'll be interested in hearing what you think about it. I have the Staccato P DUO and think the C2 (particularly for me the DUO) would be the better carry system.
  20. My wife, an RN with extensive clinical experience, started everyone in the family on Vitamin D supplements two months ago. I just did as I was told and took the pill each morning. I'm glad she was right, but I'll never admit that to her.
  21. That one never gets old no matter how many times my friends tag me in it.
