Buy 10 Magazines Right Now

It’s kinda weird. When it seemed like Hillary was going to win, we had a run on everything AR. The democratic party has gone full-tilt gun confiscation and it’s business as usual. OK. Even if you think Trump win’s in 2020? What about his mid-terms? What about 2024? DO NOT make the mistake many of us made in 1994. We …

You see, European gun makers tend to go with slower twists for lighter bullets.  …

Alternative to Stippling

Chuck S. posted an image of this gun on our Facebook account. I thought the stippling was so interesting that we should post it here. Turns out it’s not stippling at all!
