    LCPII : Is it a high mileage gun ?

    You'd think with the proliferation of .380 handguns, ammo would be slightly cheaper. If folks would actually shoot their .380s? Present company excluded. I have never, ever seen a .380 used in class, beginning my 7th year as a professional student and range valet I may have to run the PK380 next Saturday at class...

    SIRT Alternative

    A few months back, I discovered a course of semi-consistent dry fire work actually improved my live fire skills. Specifically, drawing, presenting, and first (or multiple) trigger press. While assisting at a recent class, there was a conversation between the instructor and students regarding practice with SIRT guns; the immediate feedback from the laser does help and makes dry work a little more fun and engaging. I start googling for a CZ variant; they don't exist and an airsoft replica is more than a real gun. Laser bullets start populating with reactive targets - it was then when I remembered seeing a video on Truth About Guns or Ammoland or Firearm Blog or ? promoting iTarget. I won't post links, but easily found on the net, YouTube and App Store. What you get: Laser bullets with 2 set of batteries target / mobile phone sled, laser dot reflective target and app = $98.00 free shipping. How it works: Download App, insert phone into sled, adjust aspect/zoom ratios, set distance, shoot at target. Phone camera records hits with gun shot retort. Does it work: Yep. Camera a little hard to adjust, I think it's my budget phone. Worked with the RAMI, 75B and HP carbine. 9 feet to 36 feet Impressed? Actually yes, especially after I discovered the sled has a standard tripod mount and repurposed my Grandpa's camera tripod. Sled is plastic, but well made. Bullet is packaged as iTarget, I assume private label version of the one (or two) available on the market. App is easy to use. Value: Have used it 2 times $20 in range time plus 1 hour of gas and time each trip. Expended 300 rounds so far. Break even by my math. For you DA guys, it's close to dry fire Nirvana.

    Hello from a new member

    Welcome aboard, I too, am a CZ Kool aid drinker.
  4. CZ series, in order of acquisition 75B variant P01 variant RAMI 2075 P - soon to be sent to CGW. Mag compatibility is a plus, though the RAMI struggles with 16 / 18 round mags.

    March 2-3 Rifle Gunfighting 2 Dayton TN

    In the description, it states rifle / subgun / 50 yards. Safe to assume any rifle, center-fire / PC carbine, or PDW would work for this class?

    Oh Danny Boy

    Farewell Mr. Finney
  8. Thanks for the post, noticed no recent activity and didn't click on his profile. Looks like the right guy is buying it!
  9. Fastest sale ever? You got to admit, the house probably deserves a frosty cool one if this goes through. Pretty cool (and unique?) pistol, had no idea such a thing existed. To the buyer, as a new member, Ishel may require some additional due diligence docs, but don't worry, our on side, despite a low post count, he is a member in good standing.

    Is There Such A Thing As Clean Ammo?

    Specifically, 9mm range ammo? Been shooting a bunch of the WM Win 124 NATO with no issues other than quite a bit of residue, especially on the feed ramps of my CZs. With all brand name brass around $10/50 or less, any suggestions? Doesn't specifically need to be 124gr. Thanks!

    ad closed Hi Point 995TS 9mm Carbine *SOLD*

    Hey now, my HP Bullpup cost me more than some Sigs.
  13. I am looking forward to meeting Lee and hearing him speak. If it not raining, I can assure you, we will be adding a really cool dynamic to the shooting portion of this class. Dare I say, if this dynamic has been done before, very rarely and not with the same attention to detail. If you have never visited the Ridge, it is a top notch facility, both indoor and pistol range. Bill and his team do a fantastic job with their stewardship of the property and you can inquire about access to the 250 yard rifle range. Easily found on Hwy 27 with good access for 2WD vehicles. Hope your are curious enough to come out - we've gotten much better since our early days in the valley!

    The Great Commission

    To all my Brothers and Sisters in this thing I call Creation, may the peace and love of the Lord Jesus Christ be with each of you. I come you a beggar for your prayers that Almighty God will have mercy on this great nation of ours and that He would touch the hearts and mind of those who believe the concept that late term abortion is acceptable. Up until the time of birth would indicate until the fetus is physically separated from the mother, it's not a person. There are a few species lower on the food chain whose unborn have greater legal protection. To save the life of the mother is as convenient as in cases of rape or incest. I recently had an acquaintance ask me what would it take to get us back on track. "A great Christian Revival, except that many professed Christians have made it hard to fill the tent and recruit." I pray the Lord blesses and protects each and everyone of you and that He showers you with with His unconditional love, mercy, forgiveness, and grace!

    Why does taurus get such a bad rep?

    Don't have a dog in this fight, so that's what my opinion is worth. Agree with the previous post on warranty, don't need it or really need it. It appears a great warranty, but poor turn times which add to customer frustration. Results are the folks with issues get really loud on the internet. Folks with solid guns don't post much for fear of being ridiculed for buying one. If I was looking at budget friendly handguns, for a few bucks more, I'd probably revisit Ruger
