    Hex Wasp - Anyone’s randomly stop working?

    My Hexwasp came as part of the Hellcat RDP package. It's been replaced once after I dropped it and the glass cracked. Awesome, they replaced it. Last week it stopped working. I figured it was the battery. Took the battery out and a small metal part dropped onto the work surface. After...

    Oh Boy.....Newbie on the range!

    No one here can't say they were never a newbie. My time was my first summer in Boy Scout camp using a single shot bolt action .22 rifle.

    Gear-up bag Bait and Switch?

    I dunno. I buy firearms for the firearms, not the promotionals. A promotional is an advertising gimmick to try to move inventory. 3 mags...those seem nice, but not a deal breaker for me. I've gotten those folios before (Springfield XDM Elite...I think?). I don't use them. They stay in the box...

    So their law forbids nonviolent misdemeanor offenders from purchasing a firearm?!?! So, lets say some 18 year old gets in trouble for drinking alcohol while underage (not DUI though). Or someone accidently bounces a check and is prosecuted. That person can't EVER buy a firearm in...

    New UPS Policy Requires Unlimited Access To Firearms Shipper Books

    The issue has to do with impact of overhead on the seller's profit. By making a deal with 1 shipper for their exclusive rights, they lock in lower shipping costs. In some cases, they have agreement with multiple shippers where they get similar discounts for certain class of service, hence next...

    13-year-old boy trying to break into Kia shot by concealed carry license holder

    In the category of you can't make this stuff up: I got the same deal with eyeglass cleaner at Costco: 2 bottles of cleaner. Free refills in a dispenser in the eyeglass department. Refilled my bottles for years. Then all of the sudden, the dispensers vanish. Turns out someone tried to fill their...
