Just blew some cash myself building a P80 to replace my G19. Luckily it wasn't that bad considering selling the Glock offset a good portion of the cost. I've put over 350 rounds through it and its running great so I'm calling the build a success!
One of the people I shoot with occasionally has a few P80 glocks. So far he hasn't had any issues with them.

I was hesitant at first to build one but eventually bit the bullet. Having a dremel with various bits made it pretty easy. As many of the people I've spoke to say as long as you take your time it works out fine and that was definitely the case. I only had one issue I had to sort out was with the trigger reset which just involved grinding/polishing the rear rail slightly. Now it runs just as good if not better than my G19. Very happy with the build.

I think my next build with be doing a .300 blackout upper for my SBR. The can I've got in ATF jail is a .30 caliber can so it makes perfect sense to run some .300 subs through it. :)

First stamp just got approved on Friday. The dealer said he's expecting the stamp to arrive some time this week which would be awesome.

Congrats! What was your total time from check cashed to approval?
Pending was 4/01, approval was 12/06 so it was 249 days from cashed to approved. Also got a call from the dealer yesterday that the stamp was in so i'm stopping by after work to grab it.

I'm sitting at 194 days thus far, hoping mine ends up somewhere around yours instead of the 300 days I'm seeing on some of the transfer trackers.

Woulda been nice if you got in that string of quick approvals but I think those are done because people realized the ATF was being extra shitty.

Read most of the thread and found some good info, especially the recommendation for the CC holster.
Anyone have a recommendation for storage box/safe when you have the leave the weapon in the GTI? Really looking for something that will blend into the GTI. I’ve seen some really impressive lock boxes that turn the arm rest into a secure location, just haven’t see anything like that for the GTI. I would be ok with butchering the arm rest to make one fit as I don’t really use it for anything significant.

Submitted my eForm 1 for the SBR portion of my AR9 build. Going to mail in my prints on monday and hope they are good enough for the atf since I did them myself

Oh, no. Imagine that.

I sell the SCAR 17S to buy a Golf, just in time to see a thread about cool firearms on the Golf forum...

Now I can't flex the Gucci gun. :(

I'll have to go dig up something else that's interesting and range-worthy. For now, this is pretty cool:

Don’t be bashful, I’d rather see a mini Luger than another flat brimmed bro-gun. Most of my collection is interesting as well.

In the same vein.

My great grandfather’s colt pocket hammerless that was his CCW as an engineer on the Southern Pacific RR. Most beautiful deeeeep bluing I have ever seen and not a scratch on it. Was wrapped in the pictured muslin in my grandfather’s sock drawer from the 40s through his death in 2006. Then it was passed to my father who kept it dry and safe till 2014 when he gave it to me. I have great-grandpa’s original California CCW permit bearing this pistol’s serial number.

One of my favorite calibers of all time; and certainly one of the most proven in terribly dire situations. I've considered buying one of those several times, and it's still on the "dream safe" list.

That's a heck of a firearm, with a heck of a story behind it. Anyone would be proud to own that. (y)

Your great grandfather must have lead an interesting and adventurous life on the railroad at that time. Things were much different then.

Eh. My M9 in the Army SUCKED with a capital S. standard 9mm ball ammo. Granted, home defense ammunition in a 9mm has come a LONG way.....it's the right balance of stopping power and capacity, because real life is not the movies and you WILL miss
Might be a little too old of a post, but I agree with the military M9 experience. I didn't like it at all.

Have you ever got your paws on a civilian model, though? I was teaching a marksmanship class a while back, and someone brought one in. I was absolutely shocked and amazed.

That thing was slick as snot on a doorknob. It was about ten years ago, though.

Not gonna lie... I fucking hate AKs. Also your location says chicago... Do you just have it set there but don't live there? I thought they were pretty strict on the laws

What's to hate about ak's? I love them. They're at my dad's house in Kentucky where we can shoot in his back yard right off the porch.

They do feel dramatically different than more common (in the US) rifles or carbines, as they come from a completely different era. I could see someone finding the experience distasteful from a subjective point of view.

I don't like Glocks, but I can't say a single objectively negative thing about them. In may ways they're better than some of the firearms I do like.

This stuff doesn't have to make sense, in the end. :)
