Ammunition has proven to be the most important commodity.
Without ammunition, the firearm is useless.
Plan and act now. Don't ever be caught up in another frantic
rush and overpay for guns, ammunition, mags, spare parts!
Without spare parts, a broken gun is useless.
Handgun purchases require 'notarized training certificate' and a two week waiting period.
Rifles and shotguns require a longgun permit. No one wants to deal with these procedures
but they are required and must be done along with filling out Federal fm 4473 upon pickup.
For rifles/shotguns: It takes two weeks to get a longgun permit and then it's good for a year.
Seriously considering getting Tavor bullpups, SCAR 16 or SCAR 17 rifles?
Want to get the facts in building a dream AR or purchasing various handguns?
Got your longgun permit and/or handgun course certification?
Then, come on by to see samples and learn about these with my demo guns.
Being properly informed is the best answer, not being sold by pitches or YouTube!
Many military-origin firearms initially so fleeting or nearly impossible to get such as
FN's SCAR16, SCAR17, PS90, and IWI's Tavor are now available and easily ordered.
Instead of trying to make them sooo desirable and force/create artificial shortages,
why didn't they just distribute even a few regularly in 2010 ~ 2012 and make sales?
FN PS90 5.7x28mm IWI Tavor 5.56x45mm
FN PS90 bullpups requiring 5.7x28mm have been largely nonsensical to buy (even if
its price has curiously plummeted since 2011) as ammo still isn't regularly produced.
If you just gotta have the PS90 or the FiveSeven pistol, make sure you secure ammo!
Another serious necessity to have are replacement parts for these foreign mfg. rifles!
Firearms inventory is prioritized by track record and calibers that make sense,
not products that divert people from the path they need to take in the first place.
Being able to help others gain confidence with guns is more important than ever.
Introduce simple, common guns first - making it easier to build up others' abilities.

There will be more problems in society. There will be more anti-gun proposals.
There will be passage of more restrictive, illogical firearm laws that any thinking
person would agree does nothing to protect the law-abiding in any way at all.
In the end, it is up to you to protect yourself, your family and other Americans.
911 will not do it. Being in denial won't help. Believing lies will not help either.
When the next big shooting atrocity happens in the nation and lawmakers with
personal bodyguards and near-immune status dictate the newest restriction on
your right to defend yourself, demand will outrun supply and prices will rise again.
It's obvious firearm ownership is being attacked effectively thru ammo shortages -
and it doesn't look like it can ever return to normal like it was two years ago. Smart
people will prepare for future contingencies; if nothing happens, ammo keeps well.
If more difficulties arise, unprepared people will pay anything for needed supplies.
Get prepared now; don't find yourself in shortages & buying frenzy like Jan 2013.
Anyone wanting to be better prepared should have begun or already be completed
to solidifying their procurement of defensive firearms and necessary equipment.
Defensive fighting, disarm/counter drills, emergency rehearsals and procedures
should be prioritized few hours weekly instead of claiming "there's no spare time".
Without firearms, you'd better be capable of violent, decisive action.
With firearms, you still need to be capable of violent, decisive action.
Otherwise, we become another statistic.

The final symbol of freedom in America is the right to own firearms.
People are becoming aware of the importance of firearms. What makes sense to buy
are proven and common items that also have attainable prices & value for everyone.
Items in this category will also be simple and conveniently fit many families' budgets.
Obtain longgun permits. Stock up on mags and ammo when you can; don't put it off.
Complete requirements for handgun certification. Get defined, aggresive training.
- Link: Practical thinking and practical firearms to procure -
EVERYONE's priorities should be: strengthen NRA and your state's local NRA
organizations, get practical firearms that make sense and can be easily taught
to family and friends. That is what matters and makes a difference for America.

Arsenal Saiga SGL21-61 7.62x39 w/5rd mag Sold Out
Note the disclaimer printed on the Arsenal manual... "Rifle is shipped with 5rd magazine"
One of the best deals in the industry; built on Russian receivers and with solid American parts by Arsenal
'great track record excellent fit and finish' among many AKs being offered in the US. - link: Arsenal AKs -
Points to note when comparing Arsenal to Romanian AKs: Arsenal fire control parts vs Tapco G2,
excellent polymer furniture with lower handguard heatshield+upper handguard tensioner vs plywood,
rust-resistant finish on exterior steel vs plain bluing of steel, one-piece machined brake vs slant brake.
As it always has been in the world of AKs, a rifle's characteristics rightfully determine the rifle's price.
Romanian GP WASR rifle -Increasing QC issues with Century GP/WASR-10/63 AKs-
Arsenal's rust-resistant coating, clean machining, polymer furniture vs Romanian blued rough finish, wood.
Romanian basic handguards vs Arsenal's tensioned (-->) upper handguard and heatshield lower handguard.
Romanian slant brake, 45 deg gas block vs Arsenal's one-piece machined muzzle brake, 90 deg gas block.
Romanian vs Arsenal view inside receiver, Romanian rough machined bolt carrier vs Arsenal's bolt carrier.
Ammunition of Interest
Important and valuable 9mm - especially with what's been going on since 2012
and what's happening with ammo availability - what does it matter what kind of
9mm ammo you buy? If you can't use many varieties with your chosen handgun
then that gun wasn't the best choice! (or just be willing to use any 9mm ammo!)
Hornady steel cased 5.45x39, 60gr V-Max
$29.95 / 50rd box
Hornady steel cased 7.62x39, 123gr V-Max
$44.95 / 50rd box
A new twist on US-manufactured ammunition: very interesting especially with many AR companies
(Olympic Arms, Adams Arms, Smith & Wesson, LWRC, Bushmaster, Spikes Tactical and others)
promoting their 5.45x39 or 7.62x39 uppers - some have been selling them for more than 5 years.
So, it isn't only AK rifles and Russian ammuniton - American companies have gotten into it as well.
Where are all the naysayers now? "Steel cases not good; causes catastrophic failures, etc etc..."
How about steel cased 9, 40, 45, 223, 308 introduced from Hornady in summer/fall of 2011?
Be careful when reading overflowing reports from companies & internet know-it-alls that constantly
speak of using (mild-to-full) corrosive 5.45x39 in their AR uppers and how gas pistons eliminate (!)
carbon and gas fouling in upper receivers so you should buy their/a gas piston system upper etc etc,
WHAT BUNK. first: just buy current production Wolf/Tula/Bear 5.45x39 which is not corrosive.
second: remember that ANY semiauto has an action that must unlock, vent and eject spent cases.
third: review these pictures of gas piston systems and note how much crud still gets everywhere!!
current production steel cased 5.56 / .223, 5.45x39, 7.62x39 is not expensive and far better than
"nickel-and-diming" with decades-earlier 'cheap' corrosive ammo. Rejoice with your reliable rifle.
