yes, in part.  several of my friends stopped by the booth and spoke to the Prez.  Specifically was told they have started making a few guns there now and will increase production over a period.  

That’s veeeey interesting. I’d pay full retail to see a TN rollmarked gun.

PSA P32 BLK with free shipping $149.99. :shrug:

It's tough to argue with that, but I'd really like to go .380/.38 if I can find one.

The more I think about it, the more I'm digging the idea of another little snubby .38

I will be sure and tell the rep at the SCCY booth at the NRA meeting last month......

Based on our last discussion on the matter nothing was happening:

However, there does appear to be some job listings on indeed.com for SCCY in Maryville.  Maybe it is coming along.

My only issue with those KelTec p32’s thatbibe had is mine always got bad rim lock...

Keltec has a fix for that now. They put a shim I’n the mag. It supposedly only happened with hollow point ammunition. I have a box of silver tips, that I never shot through mine, because of the rim lock situation.

I only ever carried ball in mine, because of rim lock and also for penetration. Hollow point out of a .32 tend not to expand and doesn’t  penetrate through heavy clothing.

I ended up giving P32 to my daughter as a carry piece. Then I got the LCP. Still usually carry ball in it too. 

But in my S&W 442, I carry 130 gr Federal Nyclads.

SCCY is currently making parts in leased space very near their intended final location. I believe final assembly is still in Daytona.   I learned that a couple weeks ago. The plan I heard was they'd begin work on a permanent facility late this year or early next year.

The M206 is a workhorse of a pistol.  Put it in the same category as a Charter Arms Bulldog or the like.

The build quality is what you'd expect from RIA - nothing fancy - but good quality and utilitarian.

As much as I love my RIA 1911, the RIA revolver I bought last year is junque. Your mileage may vary.

Really?! What's wrong with it? Add I understand it they may have had a recall from incorrect timing/lockup. I remember seeing something like that in a review.

Just to add another "what I have" reply, I have multiple Bersa .380s as well as Taurus 85s in .38spl.  To date I have been very pleased with them and have had no hiccups out of any of them.  I tend to spread them around the place like reading glasses so they are always handy when and where I need them.  They are not in plain sight.  I have other more expensive handguns of course but for utilitarian dependable usage, these fit the bill.

I haven't really took it apart to see. The action feels quite good with the gun empty. Load it, and the cylinder wants to bind...sometimes.  Might be an easy fix. I dunno. I'll have to dig it out and look at it sometime. It is fairly accurate. The grips aren't that great. You get a pair of very homely wood grips, and a pair of black grips that would look big on an N frame Smith.

RIA's grips have never been anything to write home about.  I remember being so disappointed when I got my first RIA 1911.

That's the first I've heard of issues on the M206. I wonder how their warranty is?

What's the price you're willing to pay for a P3AT with two mags, and how close to Nashville can you travel?

Whatever fair market value commands & I generally meet up at the Outpost Armory, just outside of Murfreesboro. If it's cheap enough, I'm happy to meet on your front door step.... :)

I'm kinda narrowing down my options.

Ruger LCp, or Kel-Tec P3at/PF9, possibly a P11

 

I have both an LCP and P3AT. The keltec is a little smaller, but the Ruger is nicer in every way.  The P9 is miserable to shoot, the P11 is somewhat better.

      I have for sale my new in box never shot Springfield Armory XD45 Mod 2 in .45ACP. I bought it new earlier this year and never shot it. It still has the factory oil on it and in it. It has factory steel sights and the front sight is fiber optic in red and has factory replacements included that are orange. It has the hard factory case , factory manuals and papers and 2 13 rd magazines. I am asking $385 and can meet a member to buy it in Clarksville , Ashland City , or Nashville area. Trades I would consider would be S&W M&P 2.0 in 9mm and 45  , Glocks in 9mm , 45 , and maybe .40S&W , or Beretta APX in 9mm.
