Re: Current State of Guns, Ammo, Mags, Etc.

It is amazing how many people couldn't understand why we own guns and now they are standing in lines. I have seen reports of people trying to order guns online and not believing it couldn't just be delivered to their porch like an amazon package. I don't know why so many are suddenly hoarding ammo, ...

Re: CTD Price Gouging Ammo Again

Cheaper Than Diamonds is what I call them and I was done with them after the last price gouging!

They actually tried to justify it by saying it was so those that really needed ammo could get it.

They had no toilet paper but had paper towels and Kleenex. No alsohol,hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes but had bleach and lots of ot...

Re: Just had my 1st Popeyes Fried Chicken sandwich!

I had my first Popeyes sandwich today also. I usually eat the Jesus chicken sandwich. It was pretty good sandwich but the restaurant was a little messed up. Tables had crumbs on them, two types of drinks were empty, no lids for regular sized cups and no napkins in dispenser and they had a 99 A on he...

Re: Devil Made me do it...

I went to the range today even with the seemingly non stop rain we have had in Georgia since the beginning of the year! At least the road is paved to the shooting bays and the bays have a heavy layer of gravel so at least it wasn't muddy. Wet but not muddy! I had installed the galloway spring kit an...

Re: Red Dot Sight Question

Vortex says 150 hours on highest setting and 30,000 on lowest. This should mean it will last awhile. As a rule of thumb I change mine every six months as they usually don't give any warning. I have heard numerous reports of people contacting Vortex and not being happy with the Viper for whatever rea...

Re: Devil Made me do it...

I won't get to the range till tomorrow but I will like it. I shot a match yesterday with my other Sfx with original Fat Daddy trigger. I love it and had no problems after a short learning curve where I wasn't getting my finger on the safety lever. All that went away with a little practice. I figured...

Re: Devil Made me do it...

Exactly! I just did mine and installed a Freedomsmith Racer trigger . Took about 15 minutes to do the polish including the safety plunger plus a couple of minutes looking for the safety plunger after I launched it.

Re: Devil Made me do it...

I don't know of any, I do it just like I have done a dozen Glocks! I polish the safety plunger and safety plunger hole.(I use a lighter spring too) I polish the trigger bar and any metal components that make contact. I don't remove any metal and I use "Mothers Mag and Aluminum" polish. It has enough...

Devil Made me do it...

and an email with the Blackout for $399! I have been thinking about setting up a second SFX for the competitions I shoot. I have never had any problems with my original and so far I have had one misfeed. I shoot at least 3 outdoor and 2 indoor matches every month. I go to some that are 30 minutes to...

Re: New Elite SC

I am still on the fence about the SC. I love my SFX and I had a TP9SF Elite and it was great too but I just don't know about the SC yet. Comfortable shooting and comfortable carrying are two different things. The SC was not designed,I don't think, to be a range gun. It was to compete with the new br...

They say it is pretty wild. I have not seen it or shot it yet. They keep it simple and the classes are ...

Re: Site Issues

I tried my regular browser Chrome and also microsoft Edge and they both did it.
I use a password manager "Roboform" and I think it is doing it. I logged out of roboform and it went away.
I think I at least know where the problem is now.
Thanks for the quick help!
