Re: Background check review time with having lived out of state

For those who may be looking at this post for future reference: It took exactly 1 week to process and review my background check with having lived in both Texas and Colorado.

Re: AR 15 under 400$?

I do believe it's worth more than just a plinker though. It is built to milspec. It has a reputation for being reliable and accuracy of 1.5 MOA or better. I think that this qualifies it as a good self/home defense, hunting, truck or a general purpose gun. The Ruger AR is not "built to milspec".... ...

Re: Us Poor Lefties

One lefty advantage I've found is being able to occasionally get lefty holsters at clearance prices on Amazon. I just got a Tagua leather Glock holster for 12 bucks.

Re: Background check review time with having lived out of state

From what I gather here on the boards, coupled with my experience as a POW in California, it all depends on the complexity of your background. Mine is very simple and straightforward. In fact, my whole life as far as the DPS is interested can be summed up in half a page. Because of that, my applica...

Re: A good western rig

Their stuff does look very good. It's a bit pricey I will say! I'm guessing you haven't shopped a lot of good western rigs... even the inexpensive ones, aren't! Another great one: http://www.mernickleholsters.com/bm_cowby.html Just check the Western & Field Rigs prices here, and then you'll feel li...
