Quick Update

Evening everyone...hope your summer has been productive...mine has been nuts....lucked into a cache of SS192[four sealed 2K round cans] so my ammo search and 5.7 reloading got put on hold. Reloading 7.62x51 and .338LM has been an adventure. Much of the summer spent with training...and close to compl...

Re: Trade SS 192 for 9MM - Help Me

Beecher, we are a little low on 9mm right now, I've probably got only a case or two in the store that we will continue to sell by the box so we have it for our customers, but we should be getting a few cases in early next week. I'd be interested in a trade if you are still interested. I'm going to ...

Re: The FNX .45ACP Tactical is Awesome

Today I finally reached a decision and sold my FNX 45. Its a reasonably accurate pistol, but given that I own a number of high end 1911s as well as a substantial inventory of spare parts, etc..I am just not going to support multiple platforms. With Illinois finally passing a CCW statute, after a cou...
