Re: 9mm ammo: anyone used these brands?

I appreciate how S&B's packaging doesn't waste any space.

Re: Pictures of your "Black Guns"

New family member. The Beretta doesn't quite know what to think. FN SLP, 18" 12 ga. semi-auto. The SLP is on my list, the same model. I confess to be being pretty pleased with it. ;-) Did order a Nordic charging handle for something a little beefier to grab onto. Decided not to change the bolt...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

What non-toxic solvents are you guys using I've used Ed's Red for years. If there's a non-toxic solvent that doesn't stink up the house, I can clean guns in my reloading room instead of the garage. +1 for the M-Pro 7 . Got a sample pack of their line to try out, the cleaner, cleaner/lube, and coppe...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

Box of a hundred. Keep it right on my bench. I'll be in mid-clean, customer comes in, off go the gloves and shop apron and my hands are suitable for a handshake or whatever is required.

Re: Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

I use a Sight Pro from MCW for installations. Not something you'd buy for a one off, but it's a great tool that protects slide rails better than most. You just buy type/model specific slide shoes that you change out in the tool. Previously made the mistake of going cheap on a 'universal' e-bay sight...

Re: Rewrite the LTC student test

Checked my records and couldn't find any who had missed question 7. Get a few who miss question 2 every once in a while.

If you get consistent misses on a particular question, it's a good clue about what to adjust in your presentation.

Re: NICS Firearm Background Check numbers for 2016

Some of that number are NICS background checks for licenses too. NSSF does some breakdowns on those numbers from time to time.

The new NICS system got off to a rough start last year, but I've noted lately that it seems to be running as intended.

Re: LTC Class-High Pressure Sales Tactics for Legal Defense programs

One of the facilities where I teach an occasional class at has this service come in. I brief the students beforehand. I tell them that it' s not endorsed by the state, there are competitive options, and like any other service or product they should make an educated decision. Once the presenter arriv...

Re: Removing grime from gun parts

Here's a pic I shot a couple of weeks ago from the last major tear down of my AL 391. This is about 95% disassembled. Only things left to tear down are the firing pin/extractor, trigger, and buttstock. http://i1383.photobucket.com/albums/ah297/heavybombers/al391_teardown_zpszccsn2ue.jpg On the left ...
