  1. Spoke to a "solar geek" friend of mine and about the Patriot Power Generator 1800 he said, "Ridiculously overpriced and misleadingly represented." This might be worth watching:
  2. I've went through dozens of holsters before finally deciding on just a plain pancake style leather holster for daily carry. I found a good custom holster maker (https://www.desertgunleather.com) and have been having him make all of my holsters since. I do usually have to wait 4-6 weeks for any new holster. The only non-pancake holster I've purchased in the last few years is I had Rick make an Avenger style holster for the IWI Masada setup for a Holosun dot sight. I prefer leather holsters for comfort. Wet-molded leather has enough retention for my use since I don't plan on running... not
  3. I did some research on shot timers awhile back and concluded that it's better to buy a dedicated device. I ended up paying for one of these on sale: https://smile.amazon.com/Competition-Electronics-Pocket-Timer-CEI-4700/dp/B008KMOSAI/
  4. Pulling your resources off of Amazon just prompted me to signup for a Lifetime Membership.
  5. Has anyone spotted 270 Winchester ammo at a store in Mid TN?
  6. But they aren't found on their website under trigger kits, via search, or on the SCCY parts page: https://gallowayprecision.com/sccy/cpx/
  7. I don't see a kit from Galloway listed. But there is a spring kit from Mcarbo that supposed to drop the pull from around 7 to about 4 (give or take one pound): https://www.mcarbo.com/sccy-cpx-2-trigger-spring-kit.aspx I doubt it does anything for the long trigger pull though.
  8. Sig Sauer P365 XL is 20.7 oz and the SCCY DVG-1 is 15.5 oz (according to handgunhero).
  9. If you think the Wolf Match Extra (made by Eley) is ridiculous at 17.5 cents per round, take a look at current 22LR prices on ammoseek: https://ammoseek.com/ammo/22lr
  10. There's a simple way to fix that... don't watch the news.
  11. My guess is that what you saw was a CPX-1RD or CPX-2RD (DAO) pistol. The DVG-1 and DVG-1RD (striker) seems to be made of unobtainium at this point.
  12. Hozzie. Champions Choice shows "Out of stock" on Tenex. The do currently show 532 boxes of Eley Match in stock: http://www.champchoice.com/store/Main.aspx?p=CategoryBody&c=APRAEL Maybe the have some that's not listed in the online inventory?
  13. The older 10/22 rifles had a push button for the mag release. Newer rifles all have a lever for the mag release. You can get varying lengths and designs for the mag release. Any 10/22 mag should fit and work in all generations of 10/22. The only exception that I'm aware of is the Thompson Center T/CR22 (10/22 clone) mags which incorporate a last round hold open when using the T/CR22 receiver. The T/CR22 can use standard 10/22 mags without the last round hold open. I've found that the 10-round Ruger mags to be the most reliable. I have a few BX-25 mags and they have been hit and m
  14. Leroy, I've got presbyopia (aka "oldman's eyes") and don't have any problem with the red dot or green dot. Personally, I prefer the green. If you have an astigmatism, the dot can appear as a star burst/blurry rather than a nicely defined dot. I've now got a Holosun 507C green dot on my IWI Masada (carry), my 10/22 Charger, and on a scout setup (barrel mounted picatinny rail) for the Ruger PC Carbine. I will be buying one of the new Leupold DeltaPoint Micro red dots for the Glock as soon as they hit the distributors. I'm quickly becoming a huge fan of the dot sights a my vision
  15. Minor suggestion: Use a pair of scissors to cut slits in the edge of the vacuum bags to provide an easy tear point. As MacGyver stated, you manual dexterity will be affected by being really cold and anything you can do to simplify the usage process will help.
