The SHK mags work great. Just ordered a bunch of the 8rnd 1911 mags. Can't go wrong for $5 each.
Just got 5 1911 mags. Id been keeping an eye out for some reasonably priced 8 rounders and couldnt pass it up. Glad youve had success with them!

Where nobody wants to be.

Just grabbed one of these with the ARC-2 reticle this morning for 199. Grabbed a failzero bcg at the same time for a spare.

Has anybody seen any good Vortex deals? was debating another PST II 1-6 and a range finder.

They let you ship it to the wareham one. But look at the cost to get it there. Total is 415 bucks after shipping it to their own storeView attachment 415330
My Son in Law went to his local TS yesterday to buy this safe. The last in stock safe was sold a few minutes earlier however they let him order one to be shipped to the store for a $50 fee. It will be available for pickup tomorrow.

Shipped that quickly? Were they shipping it from the backroom for 50 bucks?

Bi-metal, and for $500 - they can shove it.
Gunbroker auctions usually end at $410-$430 for such Tula now.
Lol I know. In hindsight should've posted in the TS thread (which has morphed into an ammo availability thread) for the people who absolutely need it but can't find it. Fwiw the last commercial 9mm I bought was back in March for 14cpr.

Exactly. I’ve heard some really bad reviews from Larry’s website about that Tula in the .308 variety. Casings split in half, squibs etc. Allegedly they changed their bi-metal compound and it’s turned many people off.

I am shooting now 2k of .223 tulammo, but with a yellow fmj, not steel-like one. Latter is a complete garbage. I got mine for $0.42pr at an auction, out of 150 rounds in last session it had 3 duds, bad primers. 1 round got stuck at ejection.
Dealers now attempt selling those at $0.57pr, it should be boycotted in my opinion. But, a quality federal .223 is now steadily at $0.74pr, so...:(

I am running out now of cheap 9mm and cannot find any. Bummer.

Would this be to long for an AR rifle? I have a 16” M4 style.
Ideally you want a 1-4x or 1-6x for a tactical rifle. If you set it with 4- or 5- scope then you will need a red dot on a side for shorter range engagements. AR15 with a quality upper can shoot far - so, it is totally your choice what you want it to be, a long range optimized or 50-200yds optimized.

I would not expect miracles from cheap optics, also. Cheapest good glass now is what I just got - vortex viper pst2, $600. You have to look through’em and compare glass yourself to decide what glass quality is acceptable for your use case.
