F1 Firearms

I am considering a .300 AAC pistol from F1 Firearms. I have looked on-line for reviews and am not seeing a lot. Does anyone here have any experience with them? They seem to be nicely built and I like that they are in Texas, but I want to hear from a user with a few rounds down the barrel. Thanks!

Re: Tim Kennedy is ridiculous

In Tim's defense, I took a three day course with his Sheepdog Response group a couple of years ago. He was personally training and rolling with guys on the mat and he impressed me as a really good guy. Very passionate about what he was doing and his mission. He is very pro-police and military obviou...

Re: Curious as to what the instructors/“experts” carry?

I do one pistol or carbine course every year and I always make note of what the instructors use. Glocks seem to be far and away the favorite. I have seen a couple of HK VP9s lately but from what I have seen, it seems to be about 80% glocks. Two year ago I did a class with an instructor who was using...

Re: Youtube Suspends Gun Manufactuers

There is a huge amount of truly obscene material on YouTube that seems to be protected under the umbrella of "free speech". Unfortunately, for the left, "free speech" only includes what they agree with. Umm, free speech only applies to the government. You tube can squash whatever they want and it d...

Re: Is the .40 dead?

I don't think .40 is dead. Heck, you can still buy a case of .25acp. No doubt, 9mm will remain the standard as more departments and agencies migrate back to it, but I don't anticipate having problems securing .40 ammo anytime soon.

Re: Sig Sauer Scopes

My brother has one on his AR. I can't remember which model but it seems good for the money. The glass seems nice and clear and the image is bright. He has been running it for about 3 years and likes it.

Re: Not-so-non-violent dispute resolution

Big guy was trying to get a seat for his mother, but lacked the manners to pull it off. Heck, I'd have invited her over, enjoyed my meal and maybe a bit of conversation while her son stewed in line. :tiphat: It's amazing what a respectful tone and a humble demeanor can accomplish. Big guy might hav...

Re: Kimber? Springfield? Ruger?

About a week ago I bought an EMP .40 from a friend who needed some quick cash to pay his tax bill. I had seen these and always thought they looked like a cool option, but the price is pretty high so I never bit. This time though, the stars seemed to align so I now have one in the collection. Accordi...

Re: Should I conceal carry a .22 pistol?

I would argue that a .22 you feel confident with is better than another caliber that you don't shoot well. My wife had zero exposure to firearms when we got married. She learned to shoot but was very recoil sensitive. When she got her CHL she started carrying a Walther TPH .22LR. As she got more com...

Re: Remington Bankruptcy

Poor management ruining an iconic brand. They can make it through the bankruptcy, but not doing business the way that they are. When I was a youngster, Remington was one of the first brands I thought of when the subject of rifles or shotguns came up. Now it is nowhere near the top of my list. I real...

Re: Interesting Non Car Buying Experience

Going to a dealership is like playing a game of 3-card Monty. It's amazing what so many of those places try to get away with. I bought my last new car in 1991. It was a crazy, 4 hour shell game to get them to sell it to me for the price that was written on the windshield. I gave that car to my dad i...

Re: 5.7x28 - the real skinny?

Which Elite rounds would be illegal in Texas for the 5.7? Does it depend whether they are loaded into a pistol or a PS90? Thanks in advance. As far as I know, all Elite Ammunition loads are legal in Texas. They have a list of states and counties that they will not sell to, but unless someone knows ...

Re: Spooked in a WM parking lot

I try not to surprise folks if at all possible. If I have someone parked near me and they don't seem to be aware I'm coming, I will generally start whistling a tune. It alerts them to my presence and makes me seem non-threatening. That being said, so many young folks have earbuds in and are glued to...
