  1. I have the Big Boy in 357Mag. I love it. Rick
  2. Ammo of most calibers is difficult to source right now. 9MM that in Feb last year could be bought for the cheap import was about .13 cents a round. Same stuff today is .55 cents a round or more. Forget reloading right now too. Components are just not available. Check https://ammoseek.com/ . THey do not sell ammo. They list ammo by price and availability. When you select a vendor they redirect you to the vendors sight. Keep in mind that any ammo shipment will include a hazmat fee. Rick
  3. Another option to look at is the so called "ghost guns". The frames are 80% complete with the buyer having the finish the frame. Not hard at all if doing a Glock clone, little more difficult with a Sig build and most difficult the 1911 build. You have to make sure that they are legal in your state. I personally like the grips better on on the 80P Glock clone than the stock Glock grip. You can also build 80% ARs and AKs as well as the 10/22 Ruger. The hard parts with the AR/AK, 1911, 10/22 and the Sig is they require jigs that can be difficult to source and and range in price from 150 to about
  4. I'm not a huge Glock fan although I have a couple. My favorite is a G21 chambered for 50GI. Reason a lot of police departments have glock is because Glock had fantastic deals to get those departments to buy them. Many call the Glock the perfect pistol. They started that nonsense with the Gen 1 guns and Glock has upgraded em 4 times not to the Gen 5. Plus there are tons of after market upgrades for the perfect gun. Don't like the triggers on them and spending 150-300 to fix that is easy. I also own a CZ, A couple of 1911's, Browning HP and Ruger. Go to a store with a range and find out what sui
  5. If you think about everyone of them who served or worked on the factory floor had survived the Great Depression prior to doing their part. And it was a world wide depression that actually was one of the reason that Hitler was able to gain power in the first place. Rick
  6. All of the agents who went into occupied Europe should be remembered. It was a very dangerous game they played. 3-6 agents on the ground in Greece helping the Greek resistance kept about 6 full German divisions tied down. Divisions that could have made a huge difference in Italy or on the Normany beach head or in Russia. IIRC it was something like 19 divisions in France. All to provide security and hunt down the resistance. Now for some odd information. And trust me. I'm not detracting from the agents on the ground nor the resistance fighters but if you look at numbers they are astoundin
  7. Damned is it that easy??? Never had anything against a horse....till now🤣🤣🤣!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. ATF requires floatation devices for all Semi auto rifles While boating! Rick
  9. I got the slide assembly (upper), and ammo components from https://www.guncrafterindustries.com/ . I got the frame from from https://www.rockeybrass.com/ . Rockybrass is out of stock on the frames right now. The upper also fits the Glock G21 gen 3 frame. The lower parts I sourced from ebay. If you go to build one let me know. I can give you a bunch of recourses. Rick
  10. Love it. It's blast! Rick
  11. New pistol, ghost gun type. 80% PF45 frame, 50GI upper. That's 9MM, 357SIG, 45 ACP and 50GI. GI= Guncrafter Industries. Rick
  12. Just this morning. I was referring to the fact that they were called out to DC when nothing was going on. Rick
  13. This whole thing is scary. No riots yet the guard is called out? That they are not being housed or taken care of is no surprise considering it's the politicians that demanded their presents. Basically "the war is over, soldiers and dogs keep off the grass". This was about showmanship and nothing else. Look at when Hurricane Katrina hit. Folks were yelling about why wasn't the guard sent in during the storm. Simple answer is the leadership is supposed to look at the mission and the required support. Well that would mean sitting up a tent city complete with porta potties and shower points.
  14. That's it. I'm getting my feet amputated! Rick
