  1. A year or so ago I bought some of the Oath Tango ammunition. I went back to their website ( here:http://www.oathammo.com/about-us ) and it no longer allows direct purchase and they've not responded to my inquiries. Does anyone know the reason?

    M1 Carbine

    i had two Inlands and gave one to my son. Great little guns and very fun to shoot. Enjoy.
  3. I bought a 250 2Sum with a Full size and midsize together using a single lower in 9 mm. I like the way it shoots but do think the trigger pull is a bit long. I prefer the traditional Sig DA/SA. A good solid gun, though, just not my favorite.
  4. I was just wondering what you think of it.

    Sig 226 or?

    I love my 226. I'd never let it go.
  6. I deal with police officers everyday. I have never heard of anyone ever being asked to do this. It makes no sense to me.
  7. Piers Morgan: “I don’t want to ‘grab’ anyone’s guns, or tell Americans how to lead their lives”   Don’t be fooled. Piers Morgan, CNN host and outspoken critic of United States gun policies, apparently doesn’t actually want to tell Americans how to live their lives — or stage any sort of gun grab. In an interview with Forbes, released Monday, the controversial Brit outlined his views on a variety of topics, including on what is perhaps his most polarizing issue: guns.     For the rest: http://redalertpolitics.com/2013/10/28/piers-morgan-i-dont-want-to-grab-anyones-guns-or-tell-americans-how-to-lead-their-lives/    
  8. A very good idea. Relocation to the South makes sense for most gun manufacturers.
  9. South Carolina Is Not Done Fighting the Civil War Feb 14, 2013 10:00 AM by Ilya Gerner | Comments: For the sake of everyone's sanity, let's hope the entire South Carolina state legislature is part of an elaborate historical reenactment intended to teach children about the pitfalls of states' rights. Otherwise this legislation, passed out of a South Carolina Senate committee, would be pretty ridiculous: At least they're honest about calling their armed mob an "unorganized" militia. http://www.indecisionforever.com/blog/2013/02/14/south-carolina-not-done-fighting-the-civil-war

    I love mine. It only has about 500 rounds through it with no real problems even with cheaper ammo. I put Hough rubber grips on it and love it. It replaced my 220 as the everyday carry gun. Remarkably accurate for such a small gun and cycles Federal 147 gr +P+ rounds like nothing.
  11. They're both two of the finest firearms ever made.
  12. Tenn. police allowed to carry personal AR-15 rifles Joey Garrison, The Tennessean8:01a.m. EST January 15, 2013 (Photo: Alex Brandon, AP) Story Highlights Police can carry personal AR-15 rifles with inspection, training Currently, imited number of officers involved in SWAT and canine unit carry assault rifles AR-15 used in Newtown, Conn., and Aurora, Colo., mass shootings NASHVILLE -- In response to the recent mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., and others, the Nashville police department will allow trained officers to carry their personal AR-15 rifles inside their vehicles while on duty. "Deadly events across the United States over the past few years, including, among others, those in Carson City, Nev., Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn., demonstrate the high-powered weapons with which criminals are arming themselves," Police Chief Steve Anderson said. "It has become increasingly clear that a pistol and shotgun may not be enough for an officer to stop a threat to innocent citizens. This policy change is in the best interest of public and officer safety." Under the department's existing policy, a limited number of officers involved in SWAT and canine unit assignments carry those weapons. According to police spokesman Don Aaron, the updated policy will allow officers to carry "personally owned" rifles inside their vehicles as long as guns are inspected and authorized, weapons aren't modified and officers complete a three-day course on patrol rifle deployment.
