    Thanks for the info $lick GGP

    yeah, way too high. I think I paid about $425 for mine 2 weeks after the sandy hook shooting, when gun & ammo shortages started happening

    ive been using Federal brass rounds from walmart for couple years now. theyre pretty decent for range sessions

    I like hornady critical duty 135gr +P for self defense/ carry ammo

    No problem. For range sessions I go with Herters or Federal FMJ as that's cheaper than the Fiocchi or Hornady hollow points that I carry with.

    Thanks for all the help guys!! And thanks for getting me poor. I got to feel safe and more American! Every man should have a gun! thanks slick ggp and apex nine!

    I ended up getting it from http://smga.com/p-104082-smith-and-w...78rd-3dot.aspx . I have been looking for awhile and most places want $440 + so 319$ was a deal .I also purchased the pearce grip for normal mag, the wolf hallow holster (black carbon fiber) , 2 boxes of pmc bronze 9mm, hoppes cleaner, a 8 round magazine and finally that Pachmayr Tactical Gun Grip . What am i missing? Lol. I was looking at the apex tactical red trigger would set it off nicely but i spent a bit much today. Im really excited. I need some gun safety classes and my ccw next. Anyone recommend ear protection? Only thing left is transfer ffl which cabelas apparently doesnt do anymore lol So ill have to find a local shop

    Yeah, the trigger is no great shakes. Shoot the gun first and see what you think before doing the trigger upgrade. It is a concealed carry gun at the end of the day, not a precision piece. Yeah, the FFL deal is no big deal. Like you said, have a smaller local shop do it for you. I'd tell you to go with cheaper in the ear hearing protection. I had some more expensive muffs and hated them. Heavy and made my ears hot. Each their own though, some people like them.

    Welcome to the gun world. Yet another expensive hobby as if owning a Supra isn't tough enough on the bank account. I have 4 guns I've bought in the last year or so that I haven't even shot. It's an addiction. Have fun!

    Anyone interested in a Liberty Suppresors Leonidas integrally suppressed short-barrel 300 blk built on a spikes tactical SBR?

    Selling mine. You need one tax stamp for the suppressor - being integral with an overall length of 16", you don't need one for the sbr.
    Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

    Shot an FN 5.7 tonight - wow! Very impressed. Unique recoil impulse - straight back, very little muzzle flip. Almost like shooting a laser. Thinking I might need to buy one. Anyone else have any experience?

    I miss my Five Seven, awesome little gun. It was my carry for a while. I used CMMG extensions on my mags to hold 30rds each. My only complaints are that FN uses a weird super slick polymer for their pistols and I had a hard time getting a consistent grip on it and my FNX-45T. The other is that the safety is in an odd location.

    Otherwise awesome gun. It has a CRAZY POI shift when switching from SS197 to hotter rounds though.

    Agree on the safety - weird. Interesting the POI shift with hot rounds. Why'd you get rid of it?

    Caliber reduction and extra money. I sold my PS90 too, I want another now though

    I used Talon grips on both pistols and it helped, but I wasn't very happy with the longevity. Both started peeling after a couple of range trips.

    Cool gun. I have owned one for a long time. I'm a huge fan of the Browning Hi-Power and the 5.7 is another Belgium gun that has the same grip angle although it feels much different. Not a fan of the grip... I put a hogue hand all over it and that helped.

    I'm a HP fan as well. I have a old Nazi 9mm HP from WWII. It still shoots nice despite it's age.

    That's cool, man. I actually had an old double action F&N HP last year too. Sold it and bought something else. Kept the single action Browning though. Never selling that one! My favorite gun, might add another one.

    This is the highest discount usually offered!



    On another note, it's going to be a SLOW Summer for firearms overall sales. This is due to the current political situation along with the fact that Summer is typically slow for sales in general. If anyone is looking to buy, I speculate there will be a lot of deals to be had.

    Shit, when an upper costs $1300 after 30% off I'd imagine some slow days ahead of me as well!

    It's going to be slow for the next 8 years. Everyone had some sort of AR15 after Sandy Hook, anyway. There really isn't any accessory that has not been made yet. Every "me too" faggot has opened a gun store or tried to rig together some gay ass boutique Glock or AR. Looking forward to seeing all of these tards go out of business.

    You can get a junk AR-15 for cheaper than a junk ass 70yr old SKS.

    WHAT A TIME TO LIVE, FOLKS.
