Re: Best range shooting hearing protection?

I second the motion on the floor on doubling up hearing protection especially at an indoor range. I am a Range Officer at an outdoor range and I always double up.
I tried this at home, but the wife said I was not listening to her or some such blah, blah.

Re: Online vs In-store purchase and FFL fee

I don't do this every time, but I have been such a good customer to the LGS, I find a good price online, I bring it to him and see how close he can come. Sometimes he offers me a similar deal from current stock, or sometimes he simply orders for me and I pay a low FFL fee...I am happy to pay slightl...

And like the wise man above commented, I need to clean after each range visit...even if I only ran a box. Eh, with non corrosive ammo I really don't see the need. But to each their own :) You are right, but I often enjoy a quick clean while watching TV at night. It is also an advantage to using Fro...

Good news...glad to see the reliability and robust performance. I have two SFLs, but very few rounds through them, simply because there are too many other options in my cabinets. And like the wise man above commented, I need to clean after each range visit...even if I only ran a box.

Trust me on this, shooting competitive matches is about the most fun you can have with your clothes on. :-BD
So there's a rule against naked competition? I suppose hot brass flying around can be a special danger...

Merry Christmas all.

I'm happy with my Taurus...I looked at Girsan a few years ago, but reliability was spotty from my online research...and I think EAA has also been spotty with service.

After Apex trigger packages, I love my SD9VEs. Reliable as anything. Perfect example of a very good gun at a great value.

I am becoming a fan of the better designed US Glocks, the P80's. With the right parts, they are great guns and a great hobby to learn how to put them together well (not perfectly, but well...) Starting with a $500 G17 with its usual horrible trigger, the 25 cent trigger job helps, but you really ne...

After giving it a try for a week or so, I don't like it. Not as user friendly and more difficult to navigate. If you go down a few posts, the whole right side is wasted space...maybe this was the same in the old style, I can't remember, but it seems more noticeable here anyway.

Welcome to the forum. I am from very North West Palm Beach Wisconsin...well, we don't have a beach...or palms...but the North and West part is true. Enjoy the pistol and start planning for the next one in the Canik family. You can't stop at one.
