      As much as I like the idea of the Aimpoint PRO, I've found that traditional tube-red-dots just don't work with my eyes :( - no matter how high quality they are.

      Got it - I know a little about the DP-51, but have never been able to find one for the right price. I really want a 659 to go with my 645. :)

      Bingo. I've saved literally thousands of dollars over the last few years by using FFL's and buying online. The only downside some people may see in this is that you do create a purchase trail for...

      Pay close attention to aimsurplus.com and troll gunbroker religiously. There were 6 with buy it now's at $289 and free shipping less than 2 weeks ago. 6906's can also be had in the low $300's if...

      Buy a used 3rd Gen Smith and Wesson automatic - I'd recommend a 5906. The 5906 is a 9mm, high-capacity, midsized, all steel handgun. They can be had for as little as $300 OTD, if you're willing to...

      $1,500 is exactly where I think this will come in at among the major online retailers. I'd much rather have an SLR-107 and a PAP M92 for the same OTD cost. I'd also rather spend an extra $100 to...

      Does the rebate come as a check, or as a Visa gift card?

      Second, it seems like every dealer has marked their HK's back to retail. So you pay $100 more than street, but save $200 with the rebate,...

      I'm going to be that guy.. Ditch the crapco/hogue look! Unless you're intentionally creating a mockery of the Russian militants attempts to 'Americanize' their weapons, there's no reason an AK...

      If you don't want to think much about the purchase decision, then a Glock 17 or 19 is your best choice. Boring, but true.

      With no explanation why (:D ) my preferences on a sub $600 handgun would...

      This would be a heck of a deal if the 10 free mags were OEM steel. Tapco mags kind of kill the deal, especially when PSA has the AR-mag adapter version for $450.

      Interesting that you'd choose a 239 for maximum concealability. The slide alone is about the same size as a 228/229, and the Hogue grips add a substantial amount of girth to the frame (although it...

      Congrats on the new purchase -- I have the .40 version. I like it, but I'm still trying to figure out why I bought it :laugh:

      There's very little risk in transferring through an FFL -- all the paperwork responsibility is on their end, and they're not likely to lose your purchase because they'd have to answer to the ATF (who...

      If you're buying an SKS, and wondering what to watch out for, I'd say your largest concern should be idiots who think their $300 (tops) rifle is worth $900. Any Tapco modifications should result in...
