  1. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    From a post of mine in another thread that may be worth discussing on its own. While we play the appeals waiting game... When you think about it, the spirit of things hasn't really changed all that much, as far as compliance details go, since the previous AW law. After all, what were...

    I'm looking to buy my first 1911 for carry and I'm liking the Kimber Master Carry Custom. Has anyone had any experience with them?
  3. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    So it has been said many times that we are more often than not only preaching to the choir here as well as out in the real world. And I can't agree more. I've thought about this a lot, as I'm sure many of you have, but I felt time to vocalize what I think needs to be done in order to present a...
  4. Off-Topic
    Was a bit bored today so I put a few ideas together in regards to Our Right to keep and bear arms. “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The preceding is the version that was ratified...
  5. Rifles
    UPDATED PICS BELOW So, I had signed up to be notified for the availability of a Keltec SU16-A on a few websites several months back. I'd almost forgotten about it when I finally received a notice a couple of weeks ago so I pulled out the plastic and pulled the trigger. It arrived at my FFL...

  7. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    Let me first say again that as a parent, my heart breaks for the families and any family who loses a child for any reason. You are not supposed to bury your children. Saturday should be a time for family and friends of those gone to grieve, reflect, and remember their loved ones. I will not...
  8. Ammunition and Reloading
    So what is everyone's thoughts on why every other type of ammo is back and at pretty much normal prices but 22lr is still pretty hard to find? Seems pretty weird.
  9. Rifles
    So, the MilSurp Postal got me thinking I may want a newer, accurate rifle. I don't hunt yet, but one of my friends at work has been bugging me to go sit in the cold woods with him while nothing happens.... Anyway, up until this past winter, I hadn't shot anything but a .22 in Boy Scouts almost...
  10. Pistol Permits
    If the new law stands, does anyone have a good idea what it will cost us to renew our pistol permits every 5 years?
  11. Pistol Permits
    So I am going to have a tooth removed late this week and my question is this...if the doctor writes me a script for pain meds afterwards should I even accept it and have it filled? My concern is with the permit renewal in 5 yrs. Common sense would dictate that hey the guy had dental work done...
  12. Off-Topic
    For the first time in a while, I figured I would stomach listening to our exulted leader. I have come to the following conclusions: 1) I am glad I don't usually listen to him 2) I have never seen a president so ill equipped to lead anything (In my lifetime) 3) he will NEVER admit defeat or...

    What are all my fellow Nassau county residents thinking about our county exec ed mangano?
  14. General Firearms
    I'm about ready to order a garand threw cmp. With all the new ammo crap looming overhead what are your thoughts on getting on in 308? My plan was to order greek ammo threw cmp but idk if that's gonna happen. I wont be loosing anything going 308 and ammo should still be available locally much...
  15. Handguns
    I got my permit a few months ago and did a lot of research before buying a pistol. I had some criteria; 3" barrel, .45 cal., comfortable and inexpensive. It pretty much narrowed it down for me. I found an ATI FX45 Titan. As an EDC I thinks its great. I have somewhere around 150 rds through it...

    Thoughts of the Low Information Voter @ AMERICAN DIGEST Now I get it
  17. The AR-15
    I have a Sig 556 and the grip is the only evil feature. All of the compliant grips that are being made are only for the AR's and will not work for me, the sig grip and the standard AR grips are close in design but no cigar. My question is why can't the stock grip be cut off even with the bottom...

  19. Handguns
    Im quite happy with the xd45 service but I'm looking to pick up a g17 so I can practice with less expensive ammo. And since ill be doi g a lot more practice with a 9mm in a glock I'm thinking it would be better to have a glock in 45 too. I love the shooting characteristics of the. 45. And since...
  20. Off-Topic
    So, my oldest kid is now in high school. I've been toying with the idea of approaching them about setting up a marksmanship program (probably air-gun if on sight as a "gateway drug" to real firearms), just to counter the brainwashing against firearms that seems to be filling the agenda these...
