Re: Applied to renew my LTC

Glad it looks like your card is in the mail. My experience was the same as others in the post. Less than three weeks from the time I renewed on line till card in hand. I was pleasantly surprised. Plus the senior discount this time.

Re: Magazine repair question

Sorry, hadn't had my coffee yet. What I meant to communicate was that the NEW springs look much longer that the old springs that have been in mags a while. My bad.

Re: Magazine repair question

I think replacing the mag spring is a good idea even if it’s not the ultimate problem. I’ve gotten to the point of replacing magazine springs on used guns most of the time. I expected new springs to be longer looking than ones that have been in mags for a while but I have been pretty surprised how m...

Re: Online Sales Taxes is being collected

Frankly, I'm surprised it took the state this long to go after this pot of gold. We're talking about a lot of $$ to add to the state's coffers... which they'll spend wisely no doubt.

Re: LTC Renewal Time

Just wanted to give DPS props. I had a positive experience on my renewal just as some above have mentioned. Applied April 26. Card in hand May 13. Web site worked great and everything was easy and painless. If only I could say the same for all govt. experiences.

Yesterday was a little crazy. Glad the weather has calmed down a little and the site is back up. All is right with the world again.

Re: AZ DPS details serious FNS9 safety issues, switches to Glocks.

Glad I read this. I have an FNS9 that I have enjoyed shooting. Bought it used a while back and never had any issues with it. It has been reliable and accurate for me. I did a little research after reading this thread and decided to reach out to FN. Called them this afternoon and they could not have ...

Re: Unicorn pistol

The Kahr CT9 may also be worth a look if you're ok with a single stack (8+1). I would consider it sized between a 365 and the G19 and it's only .9" wide.

Re: Unicorn pistol

The Ruger Security 9 is listed at 1.02". Very similar to a G19 in size but much lower in cost. I picked one up a little while back and while I'm not crazy about it's curb appeal I've been pleased with it's reliability and accuracy.

Re: One heck of a trade

Man, why is it that I never fall into deals like that. Those Rugers run forever and that one looks great. Looks like you just picked up a new item for that cage you just finished.

Re: My first BB gun purchase

Sounds like you’ll have a great time with your son and I’m envious of the cheap ammo. But hey, let’s not forget the ladies! I didn’t have any sons but was blessed with two beautiful daughters. They’re both grown now but I agree with the previous sentiments. They’re gone before you know it so enjoy i...

Re: Made my first kydex revolver holster

I think it looks great. Plus, U get it exactly the way U want it along with the satisfaction of making it yourself. How much time did U invest in the project? This may just be the start to a new career.
