  1. You are in america now? Where at? Time to buy your suppressor!
  2. Good day, It is about 2 weeks away from Shot Show opening up media registrations for Shot Show 2021. Yes, the show is going ahead and this year will be even bigger than last year. Registration will be limited with on-site registration removed and I suspect Media registration will be shut down by end of November. In prior years I have been bombarded by requests for credentials (which you need in order to register) so I have put together a single response form here. Priority will be given to those who are willing to help out with gathering content or helping capture photos/videos for my YT channel. https://forms.gle/zk1u3DSgrxuhVnPR8
  3. More people check email than read here... it was also fairly limited and time sensitive as there was a small allocation of lowers available from PSA. Easiest and fastest thing to do was to send out an email, with auto replies and a form going to fill out a spreadsheet. And because this was a really big hook up from PSA and the three vendors, priority was put on those who opted in to receive email messages. When we did lowers last time, it was 4 or 5 pages of people arguing and quite simply there was not enough time for that. If you have a preferred dealer, and you want some, let me know and will ask the dealers if they would honor the reserved pricing... In either case, the prices for these should still be lower than the original lowers we did in 2010 IIRC. =) Which was $125 IIRC.
  4. Hello everyone! Another post here for those that did not read my three prior emails. NJGF Engraved lowers are here from PSA and available at very reasonable prices! We have partnered with Palmetto State Armory and were able to get an allocation of their Stealth AR-15 Lower Receivers engraved with an NJGF logo on the other side. Three NJ FFLs have agreed to carry them for NJGF members and have ordered some extra receivers for stock. They are: @TechOpsInternational in Phillipsburg, NJ, a forum vendor and the Troy "Other Firearm" exclusive distributor, @tj462nj WeShoot in Lakewood, NJ, formerly Garden State Shooting Center, and a long time supporter of the forum, and @swatfirearms in Hammonton, NJ, a good friend and a supporter of the community. While prices were guaranteed for initial responders, the FFLs do have some lowers available at very reasonable prices. Please reach out to them for more information and make sure to tell them you are a forum member who wants a lower, but did not reserve one. For those that responded earlier, the dealers have your information so please make arrangements to pick them up, they will not hold them for you long. Lowers are getting quite scarce these days so here is your opportunity to get one or two at a good price.
  5. Hey guys, a few folks have not yet, I believe the vast majority have. Will go through the list and see who has not yet and make sure you do.
  6. Awesome! Would be awesome. Let me know or can include you on PM. Thanks Jack!
  7. I sent an email and had a phone convo with my contact at PSA... Will have follow up on this soon.
  8. Sig has their own media day. did play with the gun however. Fairly nice, looking to get one for demo. Duh, sorry. Usually I get them but this year was filled with appointments, never made it out there. Will email to see if can get any. They are not 50% off anymore, I think right now only 35% or 40%.
  9. dumbfounded. I have only been asked for ID once, and that was years ago... And this was way before forum, youtube etc. I suppose depends on how you "look" the employees may be a tad conservative. I do know a few FFLs want to save their time and don't want to bother showing you a gun if you can't buy it (mostly during the Obama days), however have not seen that be an issue. Or just come to PA and play with all the guns you want without being treated like a criminal. While in NJ, the best case, make relationships with FFLs and once they know you, they don't ask you for ID.
  10. Let's meet up, there is a group of about 13 people from the forum or forum related. I honestly did not remember that at the moment of writing the post... but am shocked that @10X instally knows you were going to AVN.
  11. Gearing up and getting ready for Shot Show next week. We already know most of the big announcements however I am sure there will be more new stuff from other companies. I have already asked this on my personal Facebook profile, in our NJGF page/group, and on my YouTube channel. What do you want to see or get covered? My schedule is already booked solid Monday through Thursday, with a few spaces avail still on Friday. There is a good group of us going from the forum, including members, and FFLs. NJGF Crew - @Krdshrk @Lakota @weekend_junkie.are going for sure. Three others I have not confirmed. Also part of our crew are three great friends and FFLs, 2 of which are vendors. @tj462nj @FreedomSportsLLC and @swatfirearms. A few of their friends and/or employees are attending, so close to 15 of us. =P The goal is to have at least a few videos per day from the show and will have an editor on site. If anyone still wants to make it... let me know... POSSIBLE we may be able to make it work. Videos will be on the youtube channel, www.youtube.com/slavguns
  12. haha, no sir. other things popped up as I am sure you know.
  13. Elite Ammo is sending me out some of their defensive 5.7x28 rounds... look interesting to say the least...
  14. Both solid guns. Budget? There are plenty of semi-custom guns out there. Then you have to ask yourself how true to the 1911 you want to stay. I really like Dan Wesson 1911s, but somehow always thought they were asking a tad too much. I really appreciate how clean they look though. Les Baer builds a nice 1911 no doubt. @Bully is spot on with his comments on it and so are my impressions when I played with them. If you are going that custom route, Ed Brown, Nighthawk, etc. Slightly below, I am a huge fan of the Smith & Wesson Pro and Performance Series guns. Springfield has a few too. The newest one that I played with and LOVE is the Ruger custom shop Doug Koenig edition. Shot it out to 100 yards, really nice gun, thought some may find a tad gaudy.
  15. Will be there tonight, around 6 or 6:30, depending on traffic.
  16. What's the price on it? Website is not loading... But pretty much everyone is 7075 forged or billet... personally I think billet looks nicer, even though not as strong. A5 is necessary because of unpinned flash hider and an 11.5" barrel. This should be in the same price as most of the other "Others"... like $1,300 or so. Otherwise, the same basic cheap Magpul sights and furniture, basic flash hider. And yes... brake works... they can put a linear comp on it if you are worried about people next to you, again though, not an issue at outdoor ranges, and if you are shooting this indoors... well... that is on you as the shooter. =)
  17. what's the price on it? So looks like they are using the A5 buffer in order to make up for the 11.5" barrel... not a fan of regular flash hider, should include a brake. Otherwise, honestly looks fairly basic... wonder whose brand of barrel they are using.
  18. Site will be offline at around 11:00 PM for about 15 to 20 minutes for some security related updates. Thanks!
  19. To buy or review included? If I was to buy one... Ruger 57... for sure. What I would really like to get hands on... interestingly... the Kimber Rapide black ice in 10mm. Also... the Zev/Brown 1911.
  20. Ah ok. So this will depend on the company... and if they have any presence there. There are many American gun companies who contract out to China and then they get complaints... which should not be surprising considering they never went to China or did much QC... what they do is send the specs and contract with a factory to make the item... The smart ones will partner up with a local Chinese company to oversee production and do actual on site QC. And if they don't do on site QC... would anyone be shocked if the manufacturer changes things out as long as item looks/feels the same? Styrka chinese optics being good is not a surprise, considering Styrka's parent company is Celestron, who has the expertise in optics... With other optics companies? Many just go to the same factories and assume they will get the same quality as say a Vortex, Bushnell, etc... without actually testing them. And do the American companies care? Well, in the case of Vortex when they first launched the Chinese stuff at least... the higher return rate was more than offset by the cost savings of having it produced in China... And let's be honest... what percentage of gun owners are actually going to run their guns hard? Or even know there is a big issue?
  21. Glad we are on the same page. And this is what I meant by... real world at dealers and live auctions, there was not that much of a jump... but do see that some folks were asking more than $3k which is nuts. $2k to $2.5k is where most I saw transact at... and most were really nice shape. Also interesting... the ones you linked, not original boxes... though the Colt blue box is worth about $100, the original cardboard boxes is where it's at. Personally, between the Nickle and Blued... Royal Blue is what I want...
