  1. I mean it was an example... but I do the same thing. I don’t rely on others. Lol https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pork_roll it’s Taylor ham. Support John Taylor. Unless he did something you don’t agree with and want to remove him from history... ya’ know, like the people that want to take down the Columbus statues... ;D
  2. My point is, if you walk into a store and ask a salesperson for directions to an isle, do you say “where are the Q-Tips” or “cotton tip applicators?”
  3. I use the brand names, but since we’re doing this... What do you call that? when I have a sore throat, I don’t ask for throat lozenges, I ask for Halls. I don’t care if I get Ricola or Luden’s though.
  4. sorry, can't help but feel like this is old. It is purely based on ergonomics for me. If I can actuate the button on a pistol without shifting my grip, I prefer a button. If it has a larger/awkward grip, or no way of integrating a button without interfering with support hand grip, a paddle will get the job done. I just don't care for the action of shifting the trigger finger around. You already use the thumb for the slide stop and safety, so why not magazine release? Oh, and before you say you can use your thumb for a paddle release, I cannot.
  5. Dono if there would be a way to find out... S/N was cool so I remember it by heart, M9-210219.
  6. Yep, new pistol, new permit. I have never had an FFL inspect a pistol I was buying. I have been given new guns that had only been opened to check that th s/n matches the one on the box. I don’t really hold any FFL accountable here, it was my job to inspect it. I was just surprised that it left Beretta. That being said, they appear to be making this right. Any company can put a lemon out there, but a company shines when they stand behind there product.
  7. So I recently acquired a Beretta M9 Langdon Special Edition. I was in love with the pistol, ordered one online and couldn't wait to get it home. Upon my brief inspection (pressed for time) at my FFL everything looked ok. TBH I never saw any glaring issues on a pistol that caused me to refuse it, so I am not that cautious. The next day I disassembled it to give it a wipe down, and i noticed some areas where the frame was chipping. I know rubbing is normal with steel/ steel (or steel/aluminum in this case), but the small chips caught my attention. Furthermore, the barrel had a large spot of missing finish near the muzzle. That was just sloppy. The last thing I noticed is that the barrel had ridges on the top. That may be normal, but this would be the first barrel where I noticed inconsistent "bumps" on the top of it. The last thing I mentioned was purely cosmetic, which was the extractor pin stake mark on the slide. Total rush job. Didn't really care, as the slide appeared to be fine otherwise. I contacted Beretta and expressed my concerns. I was instructed to send pics, so I did. The tech. said it appeared to be normal wear, but if I was still concerned I could send it in. Being pretty anal I sent it in. They had it about a week and then I received a call that they need an FFL as they are replacing the pistol. I didn't really inquire as to why, so I kind of can't wait to see what the note says that accompanies the new pistol. Just wanted to share my experience. I haven't received the new pistol yet. Hard to see in the pics, but the circled areas (except for barrel/ muzzle) are chips, not scrapes or gouges. I recovered loose pieces of aluminum floating around in the gun upon first disassembly.
  8. If you have Comcast/ Xfinity or Optimum, you can stop paying a rental fee for your modem. I recommend that you only Purchase this if you are a techie/ familiar with home networking. It has 2 LAN ports and no WIFI. Purchased this last 'Nov. Will include receipt if I can find it as these come with a 5 year warranty. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/arris-surfboard-32-x-8-docsis-3-1-cable-modem-white/5839003.p?skuId=5839003 Looking for $100 flat. It works, and works well. Prefer to meet near Hudson/Essex/Union Counties. I was running it with a Linksys EA7300 right up until the FiOS install. Thank for looking!
  9. Holster wear will occur. No way to avoid it. The bigger problem is the rear of the slide and/or sights rubbing holes in my shirts. That ain’t right.
  10. I love the paddle release. Two reasons I don’t have a VP9 is because of those stupid wings on the back, and again (HK problem) too big for 15 rounds standard.
  11. Use GunBroker then.
  12. That's why I threw a *possibly* in there. I could never decide.
  13. Beautiful. My absolute favorite carbine. Possibly favorite WWII long gun.
  14. Well there again is the issue. A company building their own AK wouldn't be dependent on a market price for parts kits or the like. My question is, how much does it cost (assuming one, like Century, has the machinery) to stamp a reciever? Beyond that the assembly line takes care of the rest. I'm not seeing why it would cost any more to put an AK together than an AR. At least from the perspective of a company with proper tools. Also, as I stated previously, they can source a barrel from anywhere, hammer forged, or w.e. type they would like. Saying something new cannot be as good or better than something manufactured in a com-bloc country is just being an AK snob. That is definitely not representative of most of ANY market for firearms. I concede that the "better AK" thing is probably just marketing, but a "good 'nuff" AK at a fair price point is all people really want. That was pretty much my original point.
  15. I'm not a fan of Century, but I do believe it is possible to build a decent AK cheaper than an comparable AR. Machining for some small internals, outsource a barrel/blank from a reputable manufacturer, and make sure your stamped receiver is in spec. How costly can that be when they already had a supply chain in place for their imports to be made compliant? I think if Century gets their QC together, their AK will be a good deal from an American company. As for the AK being a better platform, that is subjective and depends on your purpose for the firearm.
