Re: AR15 Optics

My time in the Army was before optics were being used. And I'm not sure how many Combat Engineers use optics these days either, or if it's standard for everyone. Anyway, my experience with optics on AR's is pretty limited. I have the Primary Arms red dot for home defense. It's a decent optic, and so...

Re: 9mm Carbine

I own both the Ruger PC and the Hi-Point 9mm carbine's... Both are just as fun to shoot as you've heard... I've not had a single issue with either one of them so far and that is after about 300 - 400 rounds through each. Both feel great to shoot, both are very accurate (I've only shot out to 25 yar...

Re: AR15 Optics

I didn't have the cash for a Trijicon, so I bought the Burris AR-332. I have been pleasantly surprised. It is a 3X and does just fine for shorter ranges. It also has a reticle with hold over dots for up to 600 yards, according to Burris. I don't know if I buy that since it is real hard to see a 600...

Re: Canik Re-Stock!

The Elite-S is down to $380. If I wait until black Friday, they may be paying me to take them! I paid $329 for mine across the shelf at my local pawn shop......I think? they had it priced wrong. Cause they had a SA right beside it with a price tag of $399. This was a year ago. I never see any good ...

Re: Buy it cheap, stack it deep

9mm and .223 I keep a good stock on hand. .380 and 10mm I see as limited use and probably only have 500 rds max each. Maybe have 1000 .22 and probably should get more shotgun shells. Doubt if I have 100 but I never shoot it. I do not have food or water reserves yet. You know how fast the stores will...

I just checked the Remington UMC 115 FMJ, with the Prime membership that ammo is $158.70
Pretty sure I could justify the cost of the membership. We shoot quite a bit.

Re: Military Roll Call

I was a 62E combat engineer. Eventually assigned to a Cat 130 road grader. Loved it. Hated my 5 months lost in the woods, but so fond of my memories, experiences and my conditioning.

Re: Remington UMC 115 FMJ

Look into the Prime Ammo membership there. You can get better ammo for a cheaper cost. Fiocchi 115grFMJ for $165 I've never ordered from them before. Wasn't even aware of the Prime ammo membership. But what does that cost per year? So if your saving $7 a case how does it equal out? For practice I'l...

Thanks for the heads up.

The case is out of stock. You can still get two boxes of 500 for $88 each ($176/1000) with free shipping.
I just ordered it yesterday. 4 - 250 round boxes.

Never heard of gunbot, thanks for the tip. Ive used ammodrop (a phone/tablet app), ammoseek, and ammograb. My thing is that if I can get ammo locally (walmart, academy, etc) for 18c per, why bother getting it shipped for 18c per? Ill take my instant gratification, please. I just keep hoping to find...

Re: Springfield XDM .45

I have a couple XDGs now, 4" 9mm and they have really exceeded my expectations. Which is why I bought a 2nd. The hard case is identical to a Pelican case, if its not made by them. The mags are beautifully finished stainless. And they really do shoot well. Great sights and a pretty good trigger. I wo...

Re: Range Day with the SA Mod2, DA and CZ P07

I've shot my Elite and P07 side by side and the Elite is a much softer shooting pistol IMO. Anyone agree? I do agree, since the barrel is a bit longer, it seems to be a little softer. I haven't weighed them but my uneducated guess would be the added weight and longer barrel. I may have to jump on t...

I don't know about your matches. Our IDPA matches are broken down into gun classes. IDPA also has classifiers to determine your skill level.

Re: Range Day with the SA Mod2, DA and CZ P07

My P07 is set up manual safety. My Springfield XDG has a grip safety. And one of my Elites is a S. There are many times coming home from work I slip one in my pants to go to store. I'm sure a P07 would be just as safe hammer down. I don't want a trigger transition. I want every shot to be same. Here...

Re: Disappointed

Disappointing to hear. Both my Elites are two of the most accurate firearms I've ever owned. I'd insist Century take a look at it. The way things ended up working out, I thought about what you said. This time I told them I was very unhappy with previous communications with Robert Pitman and I wante...

Little update. It's been a long time since I've mailed a pistol. New laws. Only a UPS or FedEx facility will ship. No UPS stores. Then they only ship pistols next day air. I went to FedEx and they wanted $69 for shipping. Buds Guns offers a FedEx label for $39. But now I feel like I'm really taking ...

I read that. I would have paid for shipping. I had been debating what to do with it. Its 100% reliable. Probably as a home defense pistol it would be fine. But to shoot it is sad. Who doesn't smile when you send a bullet right through the center of the target? This guys name is Robert Pitman I was d...

Disappointed

I bought a tungsten Elite a good while back. It's every bit as good as any pistol I own and better than most. So I added a green Elite to my collection. It's as bad as the 1st one is good. Shoots well below bullseye. The groups are large as well. After emailing back and forth with Century they advis...
