Hi all,

Revolver fans are going to love us this week!  We have an S&W 627 6 inch in .357 (for those of you who don’t know), priced at $1044.95.  Also, this just in: We have S&W 686 revolvers in stock in .357 (again, because otherwise we’ll get lots of phone calls & emails) in 3 inch, 4 inch, and 6 inch.  These just arrived moments ago, so we don’t have pricing yet.  Call the shop for current pricing tomorrow…

FN 5.7 pistols are in steep demand.  We have them in black, priced at $1349.95,  The price just keeps going up for this pistol, so get one now to beat the next price increase.

Sadly, Springfield Armory has announced they are discontinuing their Loaded 1911 Target model in 9mm.  This is a great 1911, chambered in the mild 9mm caliber, that is both reliable and accurate.  We can say that because most of us here own one  We have them in stock right now, for $1049.95 in SS.

We are having a sale right now on Glock pistols – $25 off all CIVILIAN glocks (not blue label glocks, we don’t make $25 on them!).

On the rifle front, it’s all AR news this week.  We have Noveske NSR 7.2 and 11.1 rails in stock, priced starting at $299.95.

Also in stock are Spikes Tactical .308 stripped lowers at $249.95

People have been asking about .44mag, .44 spl, and .45LC ammo.  We now have all those calibers back in stock!

On the consignment front, we have a NIB Colt 1911 01070XSE for $800, and a Spikes Tactical .22LR AR upper priced at $400.

As we mentioned last before, manufacturers have some good rebate/extra programs going this month that might interest you.  For example, Sig Sauer is offering a free pistol bag & 2 extra magazines with the purchase of any new Sig Sauer pistol (including their 1911 line).  For an even better deal, we are offering $50 off the Sig P229 Enhanced Elite pistol in .40 S&W.

Daniel Defense is offering a $125 credit on their site for any new rifle you buy through a retailer.  The credit can be used towards any DD accessories that you may like.  Also, we are offering $200 off any DDM4V9 rifle in stock!

And lastly, we have Aero Precision AR-15 stripped lowers coming in, priced at $79.95 for 5.56, and $224.95 for .308

And now on to the news:

Here’s one person’s take on the one gun they will never sell.  In our case, it’s more like the 20 guns we’ll never sell:

The more the government tries to tighten their grip on gun owners, the more we see guns slipping through the cracks.  Now the government wants to add many more restrictions to gun ownership, without even passing any new laws:

So you like big-bore handguns?  Here are a few for your consideration:

For your perusal, here is an article from the Phoenix New Times about staunch gun-rights advocate Alan Korwin.  It’s long, and a very good read.  If you are looking for “ammunition” for your pro-gun or anti-gun position, you’ll find both in the article.  If you read it with an open mind, you will find that the anti-gun quotes are using junk science to refute real science.  And in some cases, the numbers are just comical.  Following one quote from an anti-gunner, there should have been over 8,140,000 homicides in the US last year, instead of the roughly 10,000 that occurred.  The majority of homicides, by the way, involve know criminals and gang members,  Anyway, it’s a long article but well worth the read:

Now this article is much easier to read, and contains only distorted facts.

So how reliable are AK rifles?  Here’s an anecdotal writeup from a gun range that rents them:

But hey, as long as your AK is working, here’s how to reload it one-handed:

This is certainly going to be controversial, but here’s TFB’s take on the 5 most influential pistols of all time:

We get asked frequently about travelling throughout the US with firearms.  Here is a good guide:

If you own a Remington 700 with the XMark Pro trigger, it has been recalled:

If you are tired of all the anti-gun legislation, then vote!  It is now easier than ever to register, and you can be a permanent vote-by-mail constituent.  If we all stick together, we can easily fight back!

The Armed Citizen

It has been said (repeatedly) that armed citizens repel over 2,000 attacks EACH DAY, and that most go unreported.  Here are a few that did get reported:

Training update

Do you know someone who is new to the shooting sport, and needs training?  There is an excellent course being taught each month by Bill Tidwell, at the Livermore Pleasanton Rod & Gun Club.  This is an all-day course that covers everything for the new shooter, including how firearms work, safety, cleaning, purchasing, and the fundamentals of marksmanship.  There are separate courses for Pistol and Shotgun.  The Pistol course is taught the first Saturday of each month, and the shotgun course is taught the next day.  For more information, and to sign up for a class, visit www.train2besafe.com

The next 35-state CCW course will be held on  Sunday, July 19th,  from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm. The $150 course fee includes all the required training, plus photos, notarized document, and fingerprinting required for your Utah non-resident CCW, plus the required training & photo needed for your Florida non-resident CCW. Sign up at http://www.alphasafetytraining.net/ Please note that this course now qualifies you for an Arizona permit, however, the Arizona permit is no longer honored in Nevada.  One could start a career tracking what CCWs are honored in what states!

The next reloading class will be held on Saturday, June 27, from 10am till 4:00 pm.  The $80 course fee covers all materials needed for the class.  You will receive hands-on training with an RCBS rock chucker single-stage press as well as a Dillon progressive press.  Lecture topics include precision reloading for the long-range rifle shooter as well as high-volume reloading for pistol & action shooters.  Secure your place in the course by prepaying (cash only, please) at the shop; prepayment guarantees you a spot in the course.
