Hello,

I know that folks have been registering on the site. I have noticed that there have been a lot of password resets.
Is there a problem with the registration process?

These last few WordPress "upgrades" have been knocking out functionality and I am having a lot of plugin conflicts for the first time since opening the blog. Please let me know if there are problems, or you can't get to what you are looking for. Please comment below or feel free  use the "Contact" button or email me remat(at)yahoo(dot)com directly.

I am now looking into an alternative software solution for the site since it become troublesome to do basic things.

Thanks & sorry!

 

Well, this is an interesting twist. I am kind of impressed that a bipartisan agreement was reached in the Commonwealth of Virginia, however, I am alarmed that the Governor's Office (and Attorney General) have the ability to enforce/interpret the law.

Regardless, it looks like states will be added back in. I know that there are also several bills being floated that would make Virginia a permit-less state and one that would require them to honor any other state's CCW license.

SHOT Show 2016: CZ-USA (and Dan Wesson Bruin)

Another one of my favorite booths. This year CZ has some great new variations that I like including a whole new line of suppressor models. I even like the "urban gray" color.

One thing that I am excited about is the new P-01 Omega. I have been asking CZ to bring back the P-02 (basically a P-01 with a locking safety) and this is VERY close. Aluminum framed CZ75 compact with a locking safety--What's not to like?

The Dan Wesson Bruin 10mm also looked great and was very popular. I am curious to see how sales go.

The CZ booth was also interesting because they were one of the few booths to actually question what media I was with. Apparently, there had been some anti-gun media through the booth earlier. I wonder if it was the folks that were kicked out for not following the rules that has been widely reported.

SHOT Show 2016: Cimarron Firearms

Booth stop by request.

I had no idea how wide and varied of a line that Cimarron offers. Everything I looked at looked high-quality and was very impressive.

SHOT Show 2016: Heritage Manufacturing

I stopped at this booth by request.

They make some cool inexpensive single-action revolvers. They are known for their "Rough Rider" convertible 22LR/22MAG rimfire revolvers. They are a blast to shoot and quite a bit less than their competitors (that I am aware of). I didn't realize that they offered full size centerfire models also.

SHOT Show 2016: DSArms

DSArms had a cool booth, possibly related it was also a booth with beer on tap. Their new release was a titanium frame FAL. I am not sure how I feel about that. The initial release of the Voyager with the aluminum frame was met with skepticism and took a while to hammer out the problems (mostly their all US made mags).

Great ad campaign. I had no idea that they used DSArms FAL's. I neglected to ask which model.
The rep said that they had several angry people come by thinking that the ad condoned the killing of the rhinos. Apparently, some folks didn't take the time to read the ad. Or perhaps they were part of the anti-gun media that was there.

I have confirmed this on my end too. I don't know why it is defaulting to the mobile theme with Chrome. What's worse is that it looks like some of the newer content (SHOT Show) is not viewable. I am looking to see if I can fix or turn off the mobile option for now.

Thanks & sorry

Wow, Ruger is proud of their All-American pistol. They had a whole rack of the on display and a team of reps dedicated to them. None of them paid any attention to me as I scooted past them to look at the RAP.

Well, I personally was not impressed. I will let readers decide if they think that it is an improvement over the SR-series but I did not like the feel or fit/finish. The trigger was ..ummm..not good. I do like the looks of the pistol, but that was about it. It was hard to get a good pic of it even after messing with the camera settings.

The new Ruger Silent-SR 22 suppressor looks great. It was small and VERY light. MSRP is $450, so pricing is affordable. The rep at the booth was very friendly and helpful.

SHOT Show 2016: Sig Sauer (suppressors)

These are very cool. They appear to be well-made and I took pics of this display (instead of the hands on one) because they had the cut away of their interesting baffle construction. Also, as it happens a person who works for the company that builds the baffles for SIG was there. In short, the message from him was that the baffles are extraordinarily high quality.

SHOT Show 2016: GLOCK

By now everyone has seen the (awesome) Glock 40 10mm long-slide pistol and the tiny Glock 42 and 43 slimline compacts.

What I hadn't seen in person yet were the new 17 MOS and 19 MOS pistols. Very cool!
