  1. I always fly with my firearms. Unfortunately, American Airline’s limit is 11 pounds stored in either the original container or one specifically made for the ammunition. Check your airline’s policy. As for NFA items, that would definitely be worth a phone call to the NRA.
  2. I’d say the 1911 would be the logical choice over a SA revolver for defense. Higher capacity, ballistically more than sufficient for the task, faster into action, and easier to use with a single hand. Just my opinion though.
  3. Over the past few weeks, I’ve considered purchasing a Remington 870 TAC 14 primarily as a fun range toy and relatively inexpensive truck gun. However, while doing some research, I’ve seen a lot of debate over the legality of using it as a “truck gun” and keeping it loaded in a persons vehicle. Because the ATF classified it as a “firearm” rather than a “pistol”, Is it legal to be loaded and carried in my vehicle? For what it’s worth, I have a TN HCP. Thanks.
  4. I went with the 29. Put the 10 round mag in for concealed carry and put the 15 round mag in for woods carry. Great pistol with plenty of versatility.
  5. Well, I finally took the plunge and bought the O-PAP a couple days ago from Buds Gun Shop in Sevierville. They were giving away 30 minutes of range time with the purchase, so I took advantage of the offer. I put 120 rounds through the rifle without a single FTE or FTF. I used both US made Tapco mags, IMI polymer mags and Romanian surplus mags with little or no mag rattle. I zeroed at 25 yards for a 25/225 yard zero and my first 4 shots were through the 10 ring, so I didn't even have to adjust the sights. Everything is lined up correctly with no canted sights or gas tube. As far as I'm con
  6. Thanks Captain Whitewolf 001. After prior searches, I found that none offered specific answers to the above specific questions.
  7. Hello out there. Just considering the n-pap from Serbia and was curious to know if any of you had any experience with the import. Any issues with reliability, mag fit, or canted sights? Thanks in advance.
  8. Several years ago I bought a Springfield 1911 and had multiple feeding/extraction problems.  I sent it back to Springfield and still had the same problems.  Never could get a full magazine to feed properly.  Wound up selling it and have shot all Glock since.

    Yep. Sign me up.
  10. A guy I work with has recently offered to sell his 2nd Gen 17. It has the original paperwork, box, and is in great shape with only slight wear on the slide. I've looked all over the Internet already and either the forum posts are 4 years old or the pistol is in horrible shape sold in some old shoebox. Have any of you sold or bought one recently or know a reliable place to find current values? Thanks in advance.
  11. Just finished a lightweight build using this Spike's upper from Aim Surplus. Fired about 300 rounds through it without any problems whatsoever. Spike's dynacomp out front keeps the barrel down and and midlengh gas system makes it an incredibly soft shooter.
  12. After a meeting with a black bear in the Mountains of northeast Tennessee several years ago, I carry a Glock 29sf when hiking or camping. Plenty of power in a small package.

    Although there are a considerable number of resources on this site, and other forums, YouTube is a great resource. My first stop would be to the "SootchOO" channel. He has hundreds of quality videos up. Many include how to build or buy an AR and what things to look for. But like others on here have said, the first thing you have to decide is what is the rifle's intended use and then go from there.
  14. I was on the Palmetto State Armory site the other day looking for a lower parts kit for a new build. They're having their Easter sale and I came across their PTAC kit for $119.00 which came with the lower parts kit, buffer tube kit, moe stock and grip as well. I read some mixed reviews on the PTAC kits, but I have good news to report. Some reviews said parts were missing, incorrectly machined, or out of spec. My package arrived with all the parts sorted in several bags and everything was in place. It took me about an hour to get everything assembled into my Spikes Lower and it was flawle
