"your gun is useless without ammunition"
Get ammo when available. Don't wait until something happens...!
Ammunition has proven to be the most important commodity.
Plan and act now. Don't ever be caught up in another frantic
rush and overpay for guns, ammunition, mags, spare parts!
Without ammunition, the firearm is useless.
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 bullpup rifles, 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!
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.
- Firearms for target & defense -
- Price, Perception, Practicality -

Building Up AR-15s: Pricing and Examples
* * * * * * * * * * * *
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.
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.

Various name brand stripped lower receivers are smart commodities
Go thru the process, secure a bunch of them now; they can be finished and built into rifles later.
Consider this: Three of them at $100 each would be a smart $300 to set aside for a rainy day.
Spike's website: retail: lower $115 + color fill logo +$10, color fill selector +$10 = $135.

Comparison between Arsenal and Romanian AK rifles
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.
Why I don't recommend Romanian AKs: 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.
On the topic of ammunition
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 SOLD OUT
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.
How about steel cased 9, 40, 45, 223, 308 introduced from Hornady in summer/fall of 2011?
Be careful when reading glowing reports from companies & internet know-it-alls that brag how their
gas piston systems eliminate (!) carbon or gas fouling so you should buy their AR system/upper, etc.
Remember that ANY semiauto has an action that must unlock, vent and eject spent cases.
Review these pictures of gas piston systems and note how much crud still gets everywhere!
