  1. The Sig P290 has been my carry gun for a few years.I'm really pleased with it.I find it really acurate and easy to carry in an IWB or pocket holster.I also have a NAA .22/.22mag and I get small caliber issue,but I really like that gun.
  2. I have one.Not too bad but there are better.If you are looking on Ebay,look at Frontline holster,and Badger concealment.Those had a better clip an a little better fit and finish.
  3. Thanks,thats great to know.
  4. I agree there.One of the biggest surprises for me was no light,low light situations.Most classes don't address that because there aren't too many ranges that let you do that sort of thing.No video is a replacement for that situation.The bad thing I find now is that many of the popular instructors are only doing 2 day classes.Having been to 2,3,and 5 day classes I found that it takes a day or day and a half just to get the new skill sets worked out.That being said 2 days is still better then no days.
  5. I say just watch everything you can and take from it what you feel is right for you.You usually can tell within the first few minutes of the video haha.I've been lucky enough to have training from some great instructors.Larry Vickers,Clint Smith at Thunder Ranch,and a few trips to the old Blackwater to name a few.I feel that my mindset is a combination of all of my classes.So I've taken a little from here,a little from there.For example Clint Smith teaches in a more defensive posture as to where the Blackwater classes were a little more aggressive.Vickers was somewhere in the middle.I'm not a Yeagar fan but no matter the instructor yoou might be able to take a little piece you can use.Stay safe folks.
  6. Thanks, looks nice.Just had some work done on a pistol and wanted to ring it out while I was down there.Thanks
  7. Gonna be visiting the area,are there any ranges that take walk ins???Thanks
  8. I don't see it on their calendar,is it on for tomorrow????
  9. Should have stuck with the P7M8.
  10. Will the Gen 2 SUB2K take Gen 3 Glock 19 mags???
  11. Look at renting a cabin in Gatlinburg.Its right next to Pigeon Forge and there are alot of things to do there to.We go there just about every year.This link is just one site theres a bunch more if you do some digging.Of course Smokey Mountain Knife Works is a must.Think of Cabelas for knives hahaha.I heard they put a Buds Gun Shop next door but I havent been there since.Have Fun!!! http://www.mountainchalets.com/?source=adwords&nck=8775639756&gclid=CJqXiOn18M0CFZdZhgodf8wJuA
  12. I just picked up a PUG and I love it.Steve at Monmouth Arms special ordered the set that comes with both cylinders.If you order the spare cylinder later you have to send the gun back to get timed.As for the one your looking at the frame size doesn't look much bigger then the derringers.It looks like the grip is oversized.You might wanna try YOU TUBE I saw a bunch of NAA videos there.Somebody might be comparing one.Or maybe call NAA.Good Luck!
  13. Last time I was at the Cody Firearms Museum they were keeping there displays at 40%.I keep mine 40-45%.I've read below 50% is best.But below 40% you start running into the possibility of wood shrinkage.
  14. Ive been to Academi,which was the old Blackwater a bunch of times.Even though it cost some with travel and all,its worth it in the long run.Most of the classes offered from most places are only 2 maybe 3 days.Academi is a full week.With a full week you really have a chance to hone your skills.Plus they have something like 50 ranges plus shoot houses.Depending on the class youll get some low light work in to.If your gonna use your weapon system for home defense,shooting in the dark and low light training is a must.You will definitely get your moneys worth and more.Good Luck
  15. Wow there is hope hahaha.I must say though in all my dealings with ABC they have always been decent to me.I've even had a few long conversations about gun law when I went to pick up my permits.They couldn't understand how I got a Florida carry permit.They are good guys all in all.Just doing their job.And with all the b.s.they have to put up with now a days its not surprising that they might be wound a little tight at times.
