Re: Woods Walker in Memorium

He was so inspiring to me personally. I tried a lot of different skills because he showed me how. I will miss his happy demeanor and easy explanations of how to survive.

People buying guns

Slower gun sales over the last three years have benefited me with lower gun and ammo prices. It’s hard to turn down a rocking good deal. Maybe it has been a little too beneficial. Anyway, looks like sales are picking up https://www.azcentral.com/story/news/politics/2019/11/25/fbi-background-checks-r...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

I ordered myself a Romanian TTC Tokarev pistol from Classic Firearms this morning. :clap: Hopefully I should have it in my hands some time next week or possibly earlier depending on how fast they ship it. Now to stock up on extra mags and ammo for it. Those seem to be the best value in surplus arms...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

It’s October 22nd, so I bought a collector’s series Ruger 10/22 from Palmetto State Armory for $199 plus tax and ship. It has an OD green stock, sling studs, ghost ring sight and a receiver mounted Picatinny rail. Comes with a $25 coupon for shopRuger.com. A good deal on a classic rimfire.

Re: FMK Patriot II: range report

Finally took my new FMK Patriot II to the range today. It was excellent! It uses 14 round mags. I shot six mags of PPU 124 gr FMJ with zero errors. I shot at seven yards and the sights were good. I then shot two mags of Federal Hi-shok 115 gr JHP, again no failures. Then two mags of PPU 147 gr JHP, ...

Re: FMK Patriot II. Anyone laid hands on one?

Picked it up from my local gun shop and I really like it. A little lighter shade of gray than I was expecting. Really has a nice grip. The proof will be in how it shoots. I have a range trip planned for next weekend, with a few different ammo brands to try out. I’ll post the results here.

Re: FMK Patriot II. Anyone laid hands on one?

I like the FMK’s size, very close to dimensions and weight of a glock 19. The hipoint 9mm uses a blowback action, which requires a very heavy, and therefore larger, slide. This makes it heavier to carry on your person and harder to conceal. Hipoints also limit you to ten round mags, the FMK has 14 r...

Re: FMK Patriot II. Anyone laid hands on one?

I find this pistol, at this price, very intriguing. The interwebs note problems with failure to lock back and pins walking, but customer service looks very good. And quality “seems” to be improving. So after reading every post and watching almost every vid I could find, I am going to order one. :D
