    Senator Dianne Feinstein,

    I will not register my weapons should this bill be passed, as I do not believe it is the government's right to know what I own. Nor do I think it prudent to tell you what I own so that it may be taken from me by a group of people who enjoy armed protection yet decry me having the same a crime. You ma'am have overstepped a line that is not your domain. I am a Marine Corps Veteran of 8 years, and I will not have some woman who proclaims the evil of an inanimate object, yet carries one, tell me I may not have one.

    I am not your subject. I am the man who keeps you free. I am not your servant. I am the person whom you serve. I am not your peasant. I am the flesh and blood of America.
    I am the man who fought for my country. I am the man who learned. I am an American. You will not tell me that I must register my semi-automatic AR-15 because of the actions of some evil man.

    I will not be disarmed to suit the fear that has been established by the media and your misinformation campaign against the American public.

    We, the people, deserve better than you.

  1. I believe he's talking about the gun staying flatter on the shot. Not that the ammo is flying flatter.
  2. Thanks @Maksim. I have a frame on order...
  3. You're a bit far. Considering buying and building. How do you like it? Any significant recoil reduction over a poly-Glock? Smooth? Any issues with it so far?
  4. Anyone played with one? Looks like a really cool deal. Kind of like a 2011 with less fitting and (potentially better) Glock reliability. http://www.zevtechnologies.com/OZ9-Modular-Build-Kit-Gray
  5. I get it. It seems kind of funny. Apparently started strictly as a click-bait for likes. However what if folks actually show up? What would the USAF do? I was stationed on Fort Hood. The live fire ranges are not a joke. There is lots of ordnance that has not detonated laying about. Additionally, if you're in there singly you are in essence indistinguishable from the targets that the fighters use. There are man shaped targets that get heated for thermal live fire exercises. That's all you would be to a fighter overhead. Or, in the case of Ft. Hood, a Bradley. Eeeeeshhhh... Hard pass.
  6. Up. I know it's riding season but you can get a jump on building season by buying this now!
  7. Good deal. I think you'll enjoy it. Feel free to post here about your experiences.
  8. I don't know about the "old Shongum days" part, but yes, Aaron R.
  9. A home built Glock19 Gen3 with hand loaded ammo Hey Bob. Im living that hairdresser life... Saturday’s are a no-go for me.
  10. So, first off, let me take a moment to thank @Pizza Bob and @ronhonda for their advice and guidance in choosing Aaron at DVC Performance for my intro to USPSA class today. I emailed Aaron several weeks ago. I do not have time this summer to compete in FT/R as it's an all day affair with the drive down to Cumberland (I'm in Bergen Cty) and a full day of shooting. My family time is just too important to me and my wife and I have really been enjoying our time together on Sundays. Since I don't make a living at shooting, I've decided to call this summer a wash and pick up handgun competition in the fall at Tenafly. And, although I have no desire to get to a Master or Grand Master status, part of enjoying myself is being at least somewhat proficient at whatever I'm doing. I've always been a fan of classes and education in general (high school not withstanding) and PB and Ronny were very helpful in pointing me toward a proficient teacher. All that to say that after emailing Aaron, and several emails in between, we settled on a date and I started to prepare. I brought: Lunch Water Sunscreen Extra clothes (JIC) Gun/belt/holster and pouches Tools for repair/maintenance Cleaning supplies for gun 500 rounds of ammo (I didn't use it all) A willing attitude and an open mind Aaron supplied the rest. We went over some basic safety when we got on the range and from there proceeded to work from the base on up. We started with natural point of aim and establishing a firm shooting stance. We also worked on grip and he offered several little tips which, when I applied them, really made a difference. I changed the position of my finger on the trigger and it also made quite a difference. Shortly thereafter we put the rubber to the road and started with livefire. Aaron is extremely safety conscious but not overbearing. If I committed an infraction he didn't yell or give me grief, he simply mentioned that "In IPSC/USPSA this is how to avoid a DQ" and I would start over. We started out with one shot on paper as he checked to see if I know how to shoot (I don't) and how well my pistol functioned. The gun did well enough at 10 yards but it opened up at 25 so much so that he had me shoot his gun to see if it is me or my gun/ammo. We determined that I'm actually, marginally, more accurate than my ammo. Plated bullets are the culprit and not good past 10, maybe 15 yards (I will be changing my load shortly). Once that was sorted we started working on shooting one, then 2 rounds on target. Then we started working on splits. Then on to transitions. Then stringing together splits and transitions. After a good session of livefire, we backed off a bit and worked on holster draw which we had touched briefly on in the beginning and then to reloads. Last was the real test. Aaron set up a small course of fire and had me run it. He filmed it (I didn't see it and I'm fine with that) and we considered what I did incorrectly. He then ran it and showed me what could be improved on. He is considerably more efficient than I am, which came as no surprise to either of us. And so I learned. 10 minutes to debrief and we wrapped it up. Aaron kept the class moving without rushing and is a master at keeping it light and fun. And fun... that's why I shoot. It's a lot of fun. All in all, a really solid class and a great day on the range running my gun as quickly as I could. FUN. Oh, I had my first squib ever. Crazy how fast it happened and how neither of us heard it. Thankfully all was well as it was essentially just jammed in the end of the chamber. No harm, no foul. http://dvcperformance.com/
  11. That's looking killer!!! Congrats.
  12. I’ve finally decided to let this go. I’ve had her for a long time and I realize now I will never build her. My interest in motorcycles has waned and this is all just taking up room. I have a lot more into this than I’m asking. However I’m well out of the chopper scene and am not well versed in current prices. Meaning: throw me an offer if you’re interested and think I’m out of line on prices. Frame: no numbers (number pad is blank)Shovel hardtailed by Mike47 with VCP parts. Rear wheel: tire is from VCP as well. Front wheel is a 21” that needs love. Tank: King Sportster Mini Apes: have an internal throttle set-up done by Precision Customs in Whippany, NJ (if they’re even still around) Front end: shaved 39mm All the parts in the pics are included. Yankee headlight, Heckmann kicker pedal, finned Sporty dual disc calipers(2 brake rear was my thought), etc. I’m asking $3500 for everything picked up in Bergen Cty, NJ
  13. Good deal. Post pics when you’re done.
