    :biggrin: LMAO, again !!! I agree. 1911's, of any brand name or quality are pistols that need a lot of love and care to run smoothly throughout their lifetime. If you get a 1911 and it fires 200 rounds smoothly it is NOT a sign of reliability !! If you can get across the 1,000 round count...

    I'm tellin ya ! If you guy's wear alot of khaki or Olive Drab cargos you'll love the SOE Gear riggers belt. For that matter even black or camo. It will be the best $40 you'll spend in a long time. Order a two inch increase in your actual belt size. You'll want enough room to have the belt...

    Cover Your Rails

    I don't put any rail covers on the bottom rail. I have though, at times, had a smaller 6 rib panel on the bottom rail and the VFG was on the rail just in front of the 6 rib panel. If you look you'll see smaller rail panel sections. You can then cover the remaining rail sections pretty well...

    Opinions on M&P AR's

    Yes, I own several LMT variants. I prefer their CQB MRP uppers, unless you want to build an SPR type upper with a match type barrel etc. Then your talking a whole new ball game and dollars. The LMT CQB MRP uppers are a mid length gas system, not carbine. I prefer this gas system. Bravo...

    First Long Gun - LMT AR-15 Mods and Chambering

    Yes, I like the MOD 3 large charger. Some guy's may not go for the large latch due to kit issues when the rifle is slung but I'v had no problems with it hanging up on MOLLE gear, thus far. I use just my off hand index finger on the large latch and it is easily charged and quickly without the...

    Choosing the right 1911 for duty use. I'm often surprised at LEO deparpments that think they need the 1911 for duty use. Why ? It takes more than a good deal from Kimber or Springfield to actually put them out on the street without knowing what your getting into. From Hilton Yamm. Choosing...
