Ahhh, a little heavy for a carry gun, IMHO. I like the single stack 9mm stuff. I'm permitted, carry daily.
I just can't enjoy the way the really narrow single stack stuff feels in my hand. The balance of convenient carry and comfort is hard.

Honestly, I don't either, but, I have stuff I like to shoot for the range, my SS is for comfort while carrying and concealability. I just bought a cheap one, if you ever use your cc, the first thing the police do is take your gun into evidence, and it's hell getting it back, figure I don't mind it so much if they have a cheap, easily replaceable gun versus something I actually give a sh1t about.

Exactly why I have the fatter Hogue grip on my P238 carry.
I honestly don't carry much anymore (have a personal amount of range time I want with a certain frequency to carry and I'm just not meeting it recently), but if I do, maybe I should look into some custom grips for some of my smaller stuff.

I'm literally shocked. And, I'm sure all those buyers will register their weapons as "assault rifles"......

On other note, I dropped some decent money on ammo ($0.32/brass round) and 30 rds mags ($10/Magpul) from PSA over the weekend from their Labor Day Sale. Get them while you still can.

Still waiting to get more info on the process but I'll probably register a stripped lower or two. That being said, I'm probably building something like this abomination for my next. :(

Let me save you from a slow death by owning that abortion, just send me those lowers.

Another option is the Ares SCR. It is a proprietary lower though..

I think I'm going featureless and not registering mine.

Also picking up a Glock 43 I bought off a LEO friend. I'm able to pick it up on the 8th.

Huh. How do you even hold that thing? It looks uncomfortable as shit (the "pistol grip" part, I mean).

what's all that junk on the side by the mag release? anyone use the ares scr lowers? looks interesting. CA gets the government it deserves, not that CO is a whole lot better with our hi-cap ban.

Not a resident of Comie-fornia, but I am very interested in this not spreading. Got this in an e-mail from SGA and despite the futility of petitions, figured I'd let those living in CA know.

"Attention California clients, SGAmmo stands with the Veto GunMageddon group of Californians who are fighting with pen and paper for their 2nd Amendment Rights. New California state laws have been passed to restrict your gun rights as well as your right to purchase ammunition online. There is still some time to possibly get these laws vetoed but signatures must be collected from 365,000 registered Californian voters by Sept 29th to get these referendums on the Nov 8th ballot. please visit https://www.vetogunmageddon.org/ to learn more about what you can do to prevent these extremely restrictive laws from going into effect."

Updated pics of my A4gery -

With the 20% off deal they had over labor day, I added a blue force gear rail adapter, A2 adapter, and padded vickers to the rifle. Also, I put on my new (second one I own actually) Zero Tolerance ZT-9 on there for funsies.

No clue. It looks like maybe an ambidextrous bolt catch and magazine release?

Signed soon after the petitions went out. Going to need way more than 365k signatures.. I imagine they'll try and throw out half of them.

got my first ever NFA approval on Saturday - SBR approval for my mp5. yay. Now I just need to get it engraved and either buy a new stock or see if one of the stocks from my umarex .22 mp5 work for it.

Monday I will post pictures of the new Glock 40 MOS 10mm longslide I will be buying (it's being held for me until I get back home). Should be a perfect camping/hunting sidearm with that 6" barrel and some hot 10mm ammo

Been going with .45 cal for about everything I have and sorry to say I got rid of my .44 mag earlier in the year... :cry: But I did pick up a sweet 9mm here recently but for sure am in the market for a couple of 10mm's... :sunglasses:
