Wow man! Did you leave anything for the rest of us?

Went the other day to fill out some paperwork for another can. They said the wait is 10-14 months right now??? That's a little ridiculous.... While I was there I picked up a used S&W 1 1/2 in .22 short for only $100.

I'd been wanting to get a 9mm carbine of some kind for a while, but was in no hurry and took time to look at some in person. Also, it's become more of a buyer's market these last 9-11 months or so, another reason to not rush into a purchase.

Today I picked up a Freedom Ordnance FX-9, basically an AR platform in 9mm, that uses Glock magazines. Was able to get a (smallish) discount for cash, which allowed me to pick up a set of "iron" sights to throw on the gadget rail.

The FX-9 seems to have a good reputation, but this was the first one I'd seen in person, so I took the time to look it over pretty well. This thing appears fitted up nicely, and the outside looks like they clean the guns up pretty good before putting the finish on. There are certainly some AR makers who don't seem to think that, even in a really crowded field of competitors, they need to get rid of rough spots that a shooter's fingers really won't like.

Anyhow, I will get a chance to try this out on Sunday, hopefully.

Sounds pretty cool. The 9 is really nice in a carbine with the lower recoil which always equals accuracy.

I tried out the Freedom Ordnance twice. It was hitting low at 15-20 yards, so I had to shorten the front sight post. Can't say I really like whittling on a brand new gun, or in this case the brand new MagPul back up sights, but it's mine so what the heck. That did the trick, it's dead on now. My 55 year old eyes are asking me to put a red dot scope on the top rail as well.

It functions just fine with all magazines tried, even when some jacketed hollow point ammo was mixed in. Based on my experience, and reviews read on line, I think the company has a winner here. Now, to talk Freedom Ordnance into sending me a logo hat or t-shirt for free!

Sounds like a fun pick up.

It's been running just fine, I consider testing/break-in to be over. The 16" barrel adds give or take 300 feet per second to 115 grain ammo, compared to say a 4" Glock handgun.

I have it zeroed for 25 yards, which seems to put it an inch or so high at 50 yds. That goes along with what I've read, which further states it should then be almost dead on again at 100.

Anybody else notice the deals on some if not most of Remington's guns lately? For example the little RM380 can be had for $100 with sale price and rebate subtracted.
I think the company has been merged, conglomerated, and reorganized too many times. Plus, a couple of lawsuits on defective products haven't helped.

If you have confidence in their stuff, this may be a good time to buy.

I think Remington is trying to entice customers back with incredible pricing due to the bad press. They have had some hand guns in the past 15 years but I still swear by their rifles and wouldnt have a problem with most of their handguns.

On a different note, I just picked up a Makarov in the 9mm short. Had the egyptian version of this pistol in 380 about 20 years and its one of those I should have never let get away!
