I think I found the source for this latest internet dust up:

http://thehill.com/regulation/243520-ad ... egulations#

Where it says this:
....The regulations range from new restrictions on high-powered pistols to gun storage requirements.....
I am ASSuming that other people put two and two together, like what was previously mentioned.

I guess you'll have to settle for getting the RRA trigger and saving the five dollars, but at least now you don't have to try to get rid of a LaRue hat.

Anyone ever handle one of those CZ-999 P226 clones? What do you think of it?

Someone help me out with a dilemma I'm having.

I'm considering picking up a .22LR pistol at some point in the future (once my gun fund recovers from paying bills and other thing) and I'm torn between the Browning Buckmark and the Ruger line of pistols.

The Rugers look neat, but I've heard about how hard they are to take apart for cleaning and repairs. The Buckmarks look like they're a little more user-friendly in regards to fieldstripping and they're not quite as ammo finicky as the Rugers.

The guns are real close in terms of pricing, so that's not a big deal. It probably won't be until sometime next year when I'm able to get either one, so there's no real rush.

What do you want to do with this pistol? Target practice? Plinking?

I have two Ruger SR-22s...bought one and liked it so much that I bought another! It's not nearly as precise a tool as the Browning or the Ruger MK 1,2 or 3 you mention, but they work great for me...nice fun plinking gun, easy to clean and that works pretty damn well suppressed too. Though they don't like the CCI subsonic loads very much.

It'll mostly be for target practice and plinking, 91Eunoz.

I may also use it as a teaching tool for when my oldest nephew is ready to learn how to handle a pistol. At the moment all I have are a couple .45s and a .357 that I think would be too much for him right now. So I figure a .22 to start off with and we'll move up to the other calibers in the future.

The Majestic Arms Speed Strip kit has turned me around on the Rugers. Way easier to field-strip. I also removed the LCI and disabled the magazine safety, which really made it easier to seat the mags and has cut down on the FTEs. Honestly I prefer the original MKIII grip angle better, and will probably sell my 22/45 and get a TacSol reciever for my MKII.

Conversion kit for one of the .45s.

I actually thought about that at one point, but I'd really like to have a dedicated .22LR pistol instead.

I may revisit the conversion kit idea later on, though.

on the 22lr pistol thing. I have had two sig mosquitos and both were extremely ammo finicky. I also have the walther p22 and it has never failed to eat everything I have fed it. Just thought I would throw that out there as well to consider.

Almost traded my Tristar Raptor ATAC for a Marlin 336 30-30 today.

Local dude was looking for a semi auto shotgun and I had one, so I offered to trade him the gun for his Marlin. Ended up not trading because he wanted a hunting shotgun and mine is more of a tactical type.

Oh well.

Nice... And nice backdrop too!

Just returned from my godson's HS graduation out in Olympia; he was the valedictorian for River Ridge HS and will be headed to "U-Dub" this Fall.

Well, I bought a couple 25 round Kriss Super V mags for my G21 today.

That was one hell of an impulse buy. :lol:

They function very well in my G21... Bought a couple of the kits a couple years ago to convert two of my own mags too and they work just as well.

I bought one full mag and one kit, actually.

I think the next time I buy those, I'm sticking to the full mags since the floor plates on my Glock mags are so damn hard to remove.

Still, they're really nice mags and I'm happy I found a place with them in stock.

You know the double action pull on the MK25 isn't bad. I was expecting a revolver style pull like my J-frame 442 for some reason and the reset isn't like my G19, but it isn't bad either. I definitely like the sights versus my G19 stock ones.

Don't the MK25's have the DAK trigger or did they put a different trigger in them ?
