  1. They just don't make music like this anymore. The ABB were an awesome jam band as well as The Grateful Dead
  2. 34 minutes of pure musical bliss..
  3. I agree with you but the problem is that common sense seems to be lacking with some people these days.
  4. Rock Island stands behind their products. They made things right with me since I was having issues with my old gun
  5. Range update. I got my gun back this past Thursday. It is indeed a new gun with a new serial number. I went to the range and fired 100 rounds just to see what happens and only had one fte. Other than that, everything went off without a hitch. I didn't even have adjust the sights as they were pretty much accurate out of the box. So far, so good. Still gotta put some more rounds through it before I am 100 % confident but today was a good start. Enclosed is a photo of my target I shot at...

    Ruger 57

    Just came across this. Looks cool and might give FN a run for their money. What's y'all's thoughts? https://ruger.com/micros/57/
  7. Another update. After sending my gun back to RIA in December, I haven't heard anything until I contacted them today. They are sending me a new gun. They didn't say what was wrong with my old gun but would state the issue with it on the invoice when the new gun arrives. Since it will be a new gun, I assume I'll have to pick it up at the same FFL I bought it from and redo a background check. I'll send another update once I get it back and test it out. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.
  8. I bought one for my Shockwave buy haven't had a chance to try it out yet
  9. My whole issue to this is just that there is no need for this new permit class. One permit structure is just fine. If one wants a permit then just save the money to get the HCP. As long as we are required by the state to obtain a permit to carry then proper marksmanship and common sense should apply. As others have said, some states won't recognize the new permit. What good is that if that permit is not recognized? I would love for constitutional carry to be the norm but I don't have faith that it will ever happen. In the mean time at least prove you can hit your target and understand the laws. Easier said than done in a life or death scenario. Could I do it? I hope so or I'll be in a world of s#&t. One thing I learned is that every bullet that leaves your gun has a lawyer attached to it. That and showing that you understand the basic concept of deadly force in self defense can mean the difference between going home or going to jail possibly. I dunno what the new course teaches but I doubt it matches what I learned in my HCP class back when I took it. I learned just enough to be dangerous. Practical tactical courses should be next. I want to take some but the money thing keeps me from doing at the moment..
  10. I personally think the new permit is not a good idea. Showing some proficiency at shooting a stationary piece of paper gives the instructor some idea if the student can hit the broad side of a barn. Also, I wonder if the online class goes into details about common sense laws about using deadly force? There was a guy in GA that is charged with felony murder for shooting and killing a teen for stealing his cellphone. If I'm not mistaken, you don't have to take a class to get a CCW in GA. Just go to the courthouse, fill out some paperwork and if your BG check comes back clean you get your permit. I think all states issuing a permit to carry a gun should at least give some legal perspective on the use of deadly force in their state so that applicants know some basic rules. Most places you can't shoot someone over stolen property. If a person doesn't know that then they will be in for a rude awakening if the do. Am I wrong for thinking that way?
  11. I was looking at the reciprocy map and noticed Minnesota doesn't honor TN permits. I was thinking they used to or did I just overlook them?
  12. That's who I order my ammo from if I buy online. They have good prices I think.
  13. I have a .223/5.56 rifle and one that shoots 7.62x39. The cost of the 7.62 for 1k rounds was cheaper than 1k rounds of .223. Maybe it's because the ammo comes from Russia (TulAmmo)?
