  1. Ordered 19 flats that should last a few months. Came out to $48.60/flat with tax and discounted gift cards
  2. Tony, I have put some serious thought into this subject myself and I've come to the conclusion that the best VALUE is a dedicated upper such as the nordic components upper for about $500 These points are all specific to my situation and needs but likely translates across the board. The rifle in question is my 3-gun rifle, which is what I was looking into the options for. Here's what I concluded. Conversion kit: Pros; Cheapest option Same rifle, so the trigger, grip(s), stock, optics etc remain exactly the same. Good for training. Cons; Poor accuracy since the twist rate is for .223/5.56 Reliability may be ehh Dirties your upper up. Must clean before changing back. Dedicated rifle: Pros; Keeps the filth out of your competition/duty rifle Very good accuracy and reliability Cons; It's another gun it is the most expensive route if you want to clone a current rifle, as you need to buy the rifle, plus the same trigger you have in your existing rifle, same optic(s), grip(s), handguard, etc which depending on your setup could be an additional $200 or $2,000+ If you don't spend all the money to make it the same as your current rifle, then it's not really a parallel training platform Dedicated upper: Pros; Keeps 99% of the filth out of your competition/duty rifle. When you're ready to convert back, you take off your dirty 22 upper and install your clean 556 upper! Very good accuracy and reliability You don't have to "clone" the lower part of your existing rifle, as you are using your existing trigger, grip, and stock on your lower already. Good for training, don't have to buy the parts in duplicate too. Not another "firearm" to buy Intermediate in cost, you don't have to buy another trigger, stock, grip, in addition to an entirely new rifle Cons; I won't even list cost as a con here, because it's clearly the best value. You buy half as much stuff as a dedicated rifle and you get a result far greater than a basic conversion. Condensing the bullets down into a closing thought: My thought is the best choice is a dedicated upper. It is less costly to "clone" an existing rifle for training purposes this route, as you don't need to buy another trigger/stock/grip since you use your existing lower. The feel will be the same, that's a great thing. You can take your dirty training upper off and put your clean upper on when it's go-time. Hope this is clear and doesn't make the decision even harder!
  3. I have it on an Invictus Practical drop, the hp-1, found here http://www.invictuspractical.com/holster-hanger.html I haven't tried either of the drops you mentioned, but I'm happy with the Invictus. It looks stiffer and more offset than the 6281 with more options, the USPSA kit is a whole other animal
  4. Here's an overview of a basic setup starting from the inside and working your way outwards. First, you have the belt itself which is two piece. Inner goes on you like a normal belt. Then you stick the outer belt to your inner belt. Inner belt: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1338160029/safariland-030-underbelt-1-1-2-buckleless-loop-liner-nylon-black Outer belt: https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1338127297/safariland-032-els-competition-belt-1-3-4-hook-lined-overbelt-nylon-look For everything except the holster (truth be told, I've used it for a holster too, but QLS is stronger and intended for holsters) https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1338349848/safariland-els-kit-2-pair And then the QLS for the holster https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1338289797/safariland-quick-locking-system-kit-with-qls-19-and-qls-22-polymer To set it up, put the belt on you the way you want to wear it. I would recommend having where the belt joins be located right behind the holster as that's where you won't be putting equipment, anyways. Attach the QLS plate to the belt where you want your holster. Then attach the ELS plates where you want the option of attaching your other gear. Then you attach the forks on everything you want to attach to the plates, and tada, you're done. Pretty much everything will accept a ELS fork, and if it doesn't, it can probably be made to. I've rigged a bladetech holster to ELS before with a drill and dremel. If you mod the belt to attach with a ratchet your life will improve greatly, here's my overview of that and you can also see the belts kinda. Hope it helps!
  5. I run ELS/QLS and I LOVE IT. My wife and I share a pistol for matches and it's great being able to pop the gun/holster combo right off one belt and on to the other. no fuss no muss. It's very common, which means if your pistol goes down and there's a friend or just friendly person in your squad with ELS/QLS, you can swap their mag pouches and holster/gun onto your belt in a matter of seconds for a backup. Also, ELS affords you the ability to swap gear all around to be "mission specific" for particular situations. Since you may not always be using a handgun with your belt, you can also adapt other stuff with QLS to make use of that spot on your belt. I have a 8 shell caddy on a QLS (not ELS) clip so that if I'm doing a shotgun only stage/event I don't lose that spot on my belt. Highly recommended.
  6. Ask and ye' shall receive! It was a great time Sunday. It was all of our first time to the show and spent basically the whole day in the Firearm hall. Bumped into some ol' friends, made new friends, it was great. I'm not sure what pics you're lookin for Ray but these are all I got!
  7. Mike @ Tier One Defense in Union will do it while you wait with an appointment, I believe. Not right around the corner, but not super crazy far.
  8. https://www.easterninsurance.com/insurance-quotes/personal-insurance/historic-firearms I use these guys, as an NRA member I pay I think $123/year plus or minus a few bucks. That gets you an unscheduled policy up to $30 or $40k (i forget) with a max single item payout of $3k Covers your guns in and out of the home from theft, fire, water etc so if your car is broken into and guns stolen, you're good. I do not have a claim experience with them (thankfully)
  9. The team and I are coming Sunday to say hi!
  10. Yeah, and apparently its very important to him that I put the gun down not once but twice with it "loaded" Meanwhile, I watched the video (again) and still can't find that second time... Maybe I was too fast for him to keep up at 0:11 when I snapped it out of the gun and caught it in my hand? At the end of the day though, he just keeps bumping the post for me. Thank you!
  11. Thank you for the thoughtful contribution, however it was once if you're counting. At no point were the range or NRA safety rules violated. The firearm was treated as loaded. The firearm was not pointed anywhere unsafe. I was aware of it's condition the entire time, and it remained in my control. Putting a loaded handgun on a table pointing down-range is not unsafe... Now, if I was giving it to people, or walking away from it, it would be a different story. Jeez!
  12. It would be a really precise and improbable bump to do that. A similarly precise and improbable bump can also flip your safety on/off, should we avoid all shotguns with safeties too? You know the old saying about Murphy and his laws...lol At the end of the day though, I can understand the idea of "less room for error the better" thought process if that's your approach
  13. The 1301 is an animal of a shotgun. Compared to inertia driven guns, I find it softer shooting. That coupled with the fact that it has the "blink" gas system, 0.14 second splits is easy to obtain and you won't outrun the gun. It's a little more maintenance, at the 10k round mark you should replace your hammer struts as they are a weak point It never fails me though, and boy does it run (mine is the comp, not tactical) PS it seems they downgraded the shell catch to eliminate the feature where a precise bump would release shells. Be aware that the 2 piece shell catch that allowed this, is awesome. It makes the gun much faster to load and also makes tube unloading a breeze.
  14. I was talking specifically about it being a good trunk gun here in NJ, I agree with you're quoted point but I wouldn't be warm and fuzzy driving around (and parking) daily with a prohibited firearm but everyone has different levels of risk they are willing to accept which makes this all very, very subjective.
