Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

MY LGS puts together an AR that they "designed" and build. They claim it is the best you will find for the money...every so often they take orders. Maybe I will have to have a discussion. But I think the Ruger Carbine is next. Badger - if you are interested and feel like traveling down to Richfield...

Re: Anything New and Cool in the Gun World?

@Janik if you want to do a 10/22 TD, I highly recommend finding one that already has the Magpul X-22 Backpacker stock with it. It will save you a few bucks versus buying it later. It's a fantastic setup then as it locks together and is really compact. I know I posted this a while back but I set thi...

IF you get the chance take a Sig 320 Legion Xfive for a test drive. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

When a government decides to control its people, they do two things. Take away guns and religion. And a recent survey shows over half the population identifying as non-religious. I think that part of that is kids are being taught that identifying with a religion is bad. just like they are being tau...

Re: Another run on guns and ammo?

Zeda, Great pictures! Now there is another problem. By saying "Hey look at Israel, they don't have this problem", will set off a whole different group of people freaking out that you mentioned being like Israel. It is quite sad that some people here in the States feel the need to turn EVERYTHING int...

Re: Need opinions

I agree with TL1000RSquid. An Elite can be found for just over $300 ($320 shipped). I'd take a G45 in a second for that price. Now, it also comes down to what you are using it for. I don't have a G45...yet, but I have a 19 and shoot a 17 here and there. To me, there is a huge difference in their gr...

Re: Need opinions

The price tag is around the $400 mark. The Elite is not the Elite One. It comes with the full kit with 2 mags (not that it is a big deal on the 2nd mag). I have a couple of Caniks already but don't have a Glock in my inventory or an Elite. The one thing the G45 has going for it is the longer grip wh...

Need opinions

I have a hard choice.

I am able to get the Canik Elite and a Glock 45 for the same price basically ($5 difference). Both are brand new. Which would you choose?

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

Twice the cost is no joke. I was looking at the cost of kits. Oh then the jigs. I do have a family member that has several big boy mills that might be helpful with not needing to get the jigs.

ehh I think my first 1911 will be an already built one.

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

You guys are totally making me jealous. My nephew has been bugging me to build my own 1911 instead of buying an already built one. All your pics has me almost ready to click the buy now button. Those are awesome!
