Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

How long is it taking to get the certificate once you've done the class? I'm closing in on 3 weeks. Yep, I'm that impatient.

Re: Old vs New/Your Five

That's like picking a favorite girlfriend. Oh wait, not that hard at all. :lol:

Guns that will generally catch my eye:

- A beautiful O/U shotgun w/ top grade wood

- A rifle w/ same.

- A really great 1911

- Something new

Re: Getting into ARs

Del Ton is good to go.

Remember when buying somebody else's AR, they want the money they put into it. Prices on new ARs are down and it's a great time to buy. If he gives you a good deal, jump on it. But, you can get a perfectly good, brand new AR under $500 all day long now.

Re: Aftermarket sights

Sight set screws always get 243 Loctite when I do installations. The 243 has a little better temp resistance than the 242, but any is better than none.

Re: Looking to get into Sporting Clays / Suggestions?

What public sporting clay courses do you guys recommend in the Houston area? I'm fairly new to sporting clays and have been shooting up in Conroe. But that's just because I knew some people up there. Got NSCA certified so I could be paid in clays for working tournaments. 'Free' clays are great but d...

Tony I am glad to see another shooter interested in Sporting Clays. I have been shooting sporting since it came over from England many moons ago and have seen it grow from a somewh instructor or two.

Member name is appropriate.

Warning, Sporting Clays is addictive!

Re: Shipping a firearm door to door in TX

Does he charge a transfer fee? If he’s a high volume shipper he gets much better rates. It cost me about $30 for postage and insurance on a handgun, it’s even more if it’s an expensive gun. All firearms shipped USPas have to be dropped off in person at the post office, anything UPS over $1000 has t...

Re: School Safety Certification Instructor Training Class

Back from the course. One item for those who have already taken it. If it didn't come up, in regards to students taking the course from you, the LTC shoot/test pre-qual should meet the 90% instructor standard and not the 75% LTC standard...for obvious reasons. For those going in the coming weeks. - ...

Re: CZ Scorpion Pistol to SBR

You'll have to post the build and review. There are very few bullpup that I like, but am very curious about this conversion.

I purchased too many guns recently so am on a self-imposed hiatus until 2019. Seeing these Pythons is not helping.

Scott, you’re welcome to join me at the range here in Houston to take her for a ‘spin’.
That is not helpful at all! But I thank you for the offer. :mrgreen:

My current favorite.

My Browning hi power with 2 tone ceracote finish, polished trigger system, new springs and fiber optic front sights.

I like them all, but that Hi-Power looks real good.

Post your favorite, Safe Queen Shooter

Requirement. It's a Safe Queen - meaning you don't carry it, or at least not in any regular capacity. Shooter - must be a gun that you do run rounds through. Not a "it's too pretty/valuable to shoot" gun. Mine's new, but I'm really, really digging it. Sig Sauer P226 Single Action Only, in 9mm. Has D...
