  1. Paid $399 (shipped) for a Ruger PC Carbine from Palmetto State Armory earlier this month. One of the things I really like is that it's essentially a scaled up Ruger 10/22 take-down. Even the trigger is 80% based on the 10/22. If you are comfortable with the 10/22 layout (like I am), the PC Carbine feels like a slightly heavier version.
  2. Look at the ATN X-Sight series. Example footage found via YouTube:
  3. <grumble, grumble> I just ordered a Ruger PC Carbine last week from Palmetto State Armory since they had it for $399 shipped. It arrived at my FFL today, but I didn't have time to go pick it up yet. In the meantime I ordered one of the MCKs from Guns Midwest for $178.79 (including shipping and 2.5% credit card fee). Thanks for helping my bank account whimper (even more) by pointing out the MCK. <grin>
  4. Your receipt from the DMV does not indicate that you have been approved (i.e. passed the background check) for a new concealed carry permit.

  6. I've shot both and the Custom felt better. But in hindsight, it may have been that the LCP II was new back then and the Custom was well broken in at that time.
  7. A little more information on the match from Mike (the match director):
  8. To me, the sights make little difference as I can't use them without wearing reading glasses. The LCP is a point-and-shoot pistol anyway. I bought the LCP II for the better trigger. If you can find one, the LCP Custom supposedly has a better trigger than the LCP. Last time I looked, they were priced in-between a plain LCP and the LCP II.
  9. I've got a Talley one-piece on my Encore: https://www.talleymanufacturing.com/product/encore-impact-omega-triumph-and-pro-hunter/ While not steel, I doubt there'd be any problem holding up with any caliber made for the Encore.
  10. Thanks for posting this Paulshoot. I was considering the Taurus TX22 as another 22LR plinker, but was turned off by the one-year warranty.
  11. I started shooting again a little less than 2 years ago and have gone though a whole range of pistols to get what I consider to be the best daily carry solution for me. I started off with a Glock 19/23, briefly went to a S&W Shield, changed to a Glock 26, and now carry a Sig P365 with a the 12-round mag. I don't like the feel with the 10-round mag. I'm still slightly more accurate with the Glocks as I've only put about 2000 rounds through the P365 so far.
  12. I think it's a good way to tell the officer that you are carrying a firearm. When presented with a concealed carry permit, they'll usually ask if you have firearm on you and it's location. I'd much rather disclose that I have a pistol on me than them to spot it when reaching in the glove box for insurance card/registration or other movement. That's more likely to fuel an intense situation. Something a former LEO said to me is that criminals are unlikely go through the process of getting a carry permit. Showing a carry permit upfront demonstrates to the officer that you are concerned about the safety of you both.
  13. I follow any posted signs restricting carry on premises... even ones that don't meet the state requirements. For me, it's voting with my money. If they want my cash they shouldn't have signs for no carrying.
