    FFL Dealer

    imported post I need to have a gun shipped to me, so I need to find a reliable (and preffereably inexpensive) dealer to receive it. Southeast Denver, southwest Aurora would be best. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Colorado FFL

    imported post I've been considering getting an FFL, but I don't know if it's worth it. I pretty much just want it for cheaper prices for myself, and likely a few of my friends. The problem is, I have no idea what is involved. Can someone give me a FFL For Dummies, and point me in the right...

    Need some price advice.

    imported post I'm looking at selling a T/C Contender barrel, but I honestly have no idea what a fair price for it would be. It's a 7x30 Waters Super 14 with an old style Tasco Pro Point on a Burris mount. It's not new, but it's in great condition. What would be a reasonable asking price?

    Looking for statistics

    imported post A while ago I read (somewhere, maybe here) some statistics about justifiable shootings. It was comparing LEOs to CC folks, and the rate that shootings were ruled justified. It was basically showing that the average joe tends to do a better job of deciding to shoot/not shoot. The...

    OT Mosin Nagant M44 for sale

    imported post Due to me never shooting it and needing cash more than the gun right now, I'm selling my MN M44. I'm asking 110, OBO. Shoots well, looks good, it's in great condition. 1944 Tula, matching serials. I have all the accessories (cleaning kit, ammo pouch). I'll be taking it the Tanner...

    T/C Contender pistol

    imported post Does anyone know where I could get a holster for a Contender with a 14" bbl and scope? I'm thinking either a drop leg, or a belt holster with a tie down.

    OC on Ghost Hunters?

    imported post Right now on Ghost Hunters (SciFi channel), they are in Astor Mansion, and one of the members is wearing a shoulder holster for something. I can't tell if it's a sidearm because the camera guys are doing a really good job of keeping it hidden (you can see the straps, but the...

    Shoulder holster

    imported post First thing, I know this will sound goofy, but I saw a holster in an oldmovie the other day that looked like it would work fairly well. The problem is, I don't know who would make one. A quick googling didn't turn up anything helpful, so I figured I'd ask you nice folks before I...

    Visiting OKC

    imported post A friend and I are considering a bad weather trip to your fine state (OKC region), and I was wondering if anyone could give me a quick list of where I can and cannot OC/CC. I checked the OCDO maps which have OK listed as "Anomalous", which doesn't really tell me a whole lot. I...

    So, apparently I committed a Class 1 Misdemeanor.

    imported post I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it in another thread, but about a month and a half ago I lost my CWP. No need to go into details, suffice to say that if you are going to put valuable stuff in a backpack, closed zippers are your friends. Anywho, this happened on a Sunday early in...

    1911 trigger job

    imported post I have a SA 1911 GI, and the trigger is not exactly rough, but it's quite a bit stiffer than I prefer. I have enough ammo through it that I consider it broken in, so it's not going to get better on it's own. So my question is, what needs to be done to get the trigger pull lighter...

    Free to a good home

    imported post I've got five boxes of Wolf .223 ammo if anyone wants it. I've got three .223 rifles, and not a one of them likes it, and I'd like to get rid of it. ~90 rounds left, I know I haven't tried more than about ten. There's nothing damaged about it, it's just the standard Wolf ammo...

    30 days - Gun Nation

    imported post I found an episode of 30 Days that you guys might enjoy seeing. For those of you unfamiliar with the show, they take someone and for 30 days put them in a situation completely different than what they are used to in hope that both sides might learn a little bit from each other. In...

    Curse you guys!

    imported post I was up at the Tanner Gun Show in Denver today, and I found a guy selling a M91/30 that I just had to have. It's a '28 Tula hex receiver with all matching serials. The finish on the stock is nothing to write home about, but the wood itself is in good condition. The only thing odd...

    Big 5 @ Quincy & Reservoir in Aurora, CO

    imported post My new drivers license finally came in the mail, so I decided to head down to Big 5 to see if they had any Nagants worth picking up. Other than a couple employees expressing quite a bit of surprise at my XD45, they seemed pretty open to OC. The employees didn't seem to have a...

    Refinishing a stock

    imported post I've decided to refinish the stock on my Nagant, as much for something to do as for aesthetic purposes. The wood seems to be in excellent condition, and while the shellac certainly is authentic, I'm not really fond of it. Anywho, can someone give me some good suggestions for what...

    Interesting reading

    imported post I stumbled across this paper tonight, and decided to share with you folks. I could try to describe it, but it'd be a lot easier to simply let you read it and come to your own conclusions about it. http://arkansasroadstories.com/literary/guncon.html

    Mosin Nagant

    imported post I cashed in my spare change today, and was pleasantly surprised to find I had about enough to get the Nagant I've been looking at. I was planning on getting one off of Gunbroker.com. Is there anything specific I ought to look for? Something that would tell me to pass, or something...
