    Gun laws are only for law-abiding folk, criminals never have and never will abide by them.

    Nice collection there Pastor Dave! :) ..I don't have a lot of guns myself, just choosey over the ones I do have and I use 'em all! :)

    Firearms can be a fun and addictive hobby, even if you only buy 1 a year you will end up with quite a collection.
    One thing I enjoy is upgrading and modifying firearms, looking around at what I have and what modifications are available for that particular firearm and if it makes sense and will help with performance or dependability I will order the parts and install. I will be testing out some mods I did to a remington .22 mag semi auto next week when I go on vacation.

    Very addictive, my significant other came home yesterday with a Ruger SR9 since he found it on sale.

    We are going to the range tomorrow to shoot that, the AR-15, and a friend is bringing some 1911s for me to try out and a revolver.

    I love range days. I also love how gun friendly Arizona is.

    I would suggest you and your SO don't handle the 1911's
    Once you do you'll just have to have one! Lol
    Happened to me, a friend let me shoot his and I was hooked, just feels right in your hand.

    I'm going to get an AZ ID card so I can buy my firearms in AZ. I have a place in Topock.

    I held a 1911and loved the way it felt, but haven't shot one yet. So I want to make sure I like it and shoot it well before making the purchase.

    I love mine, I have shot several and they just fit my hand well.
    I have small hands and the guns with double stack mags don't fit well in my hand.
    Flocks just don't feel right to me, my son shaved down his Glock grips and it is better.
     
  8. Yeah but the more you know/love 1911's the more they start costing you lol. Glocks are a solid reliable platform. That being said I don't own any. My dad carries one currently because the company he works for doesn't allow personal carry.

    Recently when Johnny Depp was at his house here in NM, my pops was working security at his home. He said his house totally reeks of marijuana. He also apparently is a pretty good cook.

    Sadly gun laws are only applicable to law abiding citizens. You can outlaw guns all together, the criminals will still have them. Guns are supposed to be our way of protecting ourselves from would be assailants and our government. They are tools used for hunting and recreation.

    Gun laws only serve those trying to get votes.

    I can't argue with anything there.
    It is much easier to govern an unarmed populace, just ask Adolph Hitler.

    Couple new additions this week; Sig P320 and DPMS Oracle (wanted to see what all the AR fuss is over, without breaking the bank :) )

    Dons makes really good guns!
    Now all you need is a half dozen magpul P mags and a couple thousand rounds of 556
     
  12. If you are not depending on the rifle to save you life cheap is good. Specially if it's mainly a mag dumper.

    +1 on extra mags and you can never have too much ammunition.

    All good to go there, fortunately my Tavor uses AR mags so had plenty anyway!

    It'll be a plinker mostly, maybe try it in some 3GN events - see how I like it :)

    Gangsters and canadians eh. I think they spell it differently though lol.

    Up here AR's are classified as "restricted" weapons which require a restricted license and more back ground checking, plus you're very limited it what you can do with 'em and where you can take them and how they're stored. So yea, they're a pain in the ass to own in one sense but I figured give one a try anyway :) . All makes very little sense as my Tavor is classified as 'unrestricted' and I can take it anywhere for pretty well any reason.

    Eh! :D
     
  17. You know why they are so strict with that type of weapon?

    The first thing you will probably find is that the AR's have crappy triggers.
    That is easily remedied but can cost a lot of money depending on which way you decide to go.
    There is a cheap fix and that is a JP reduced power hammer spring. Works great in my sons AR the only issue is some foreign or military surplus ammo has hard primers and it may not be enough power to ignite those hard primers. My son has had no problem with his gun but we don't have access to military surplus ammo just commercial amo and that has been flawless in his gun.
    Another issue is for the most part the AR's don't like steel cased ammo like Wolf or Silver Bear. Mine doesn't digest it well neither does my sons, wife's AR still untested but I'll try it this week to see. I have about 750 rounds of Wolf I got suckered into thank goodness I have a couple of mini 14's that eat anything.

    DeLeon is an ass hat! Amazing how many people believe what he says just because he is an elected politician on TV and those people don't understand anything about firearms in general.

    We have idiots like that up here too, if not worse - hence our nonsensical gun laws.

    Trigger (the Tavor is 9+lbs!) is not bad, but no doubt could be better, but for my intentions for now it's fine :) . I've been told too some AR's can be finicky with steel case, I've used a lot of it through the Tavor (another rifle that will eat anything) including a bunch of cheap Chinese military surplus (Norinco). Have a stockpile of Winchester Whitebox that I'll use initially just to sight it in and do some plinking. Thanks for the tips! :)
