+Richard Johnson Richard- Sites come installed on the pistol, the other parts are separate and will need installation.

We take the new Glock 42 laser, the TGL from LaserLyte, to the range and give it a beating. How did it fare? We've got the photos and video.

I just posted up my review of the Springfield Armory XD-S 4.0 in 9mm.  This is a fun gun that proved to be more than adequate for any realistic self-defense use.  It ran great and was very accurate.
A review of the Springfield XDS 4.0 pistol in 9mm. Photos, velocity measurements, specs and more.

The brand new HK VP9 striker fired pistol (video, photos, more) http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/2014/06/10/hk-vp9-newest-striker-fired-pistol/ 
First photos and details of the new H&K VP9 pistol. Heckler & Koch have outdone themselves with this striker-fired handgun.

Have you seen the new 45 RAPTOR cartridge?  http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/2014/05/07/new-cartridge-45-raptor/ Think of it as a .460 S&W Magnum that runs in an AR-10 with very little modification.  It runs wide-mouth hollow points flawlessly and is very flat shooting from muzzle to 200 yards.  Plus, more energy and less drift than 450 Bushmaster, 458 SOCOM and 50 Beowulf.

I've put together a list of holster options for the new HK VP9 here: http://www.gunsholstersandgear.com/holsters/ultimate-hk-vp9-holster-list/ If you know of any I missed, please leave a note in the comments section of the page so I can add them.
This is a comprehensive listing of all of the holsters made for the Heckler & Koch VP9 pistol. Updated regularly and community driven.

I had a chance to talk with the owner and get one of his 9mm pistols on the range. The customer service was excellent as was the gun. The 9mm pistol (essentially an SBR without a stock) ran flawlessly. It was well made and shot like a dream. Accuracy was exceptional, reliability was flawless and the loads out of the 10.5" barrel were smokin hot.

When looking for the newly introduced iPhone model, I was repeatedly told by Verizon and AT&T that I would have to put down a sizable deposit just to get on the waiting list that was about 6-8 weeks long. While walking past this Radio Shack, I saw that they sold iPhones. I popped in and talked with the manager. I told him the specs of the two phones I wanted to buy. He checked his inventory and had one on hand. The second he secured at a nearby store, and had delivered the next day without the need of any deposit. The manager was able to quickly activate the phones and get them hooked into my account. The process was extremely smooth and without any of the pressure from a cell phone store. I'll be buying my next iPhone from this Radio Shack.

James at Shadow Hawk has done a lot to help me out with my guns. John, their gunsmith, has also done some great work for me - fixing a Glock 19 that someone else had ruined. I highly recommend these guys. They are very knowledgeable, no pressure and don't BS you.

I've shot here a number of times. The staff is professional and courteous. All shooters are treated fairly with an emphasis on safety. Some people do not like the safety-first approach, but hey - their range, their rules. If you want to rapid fire, shoot from the hip, or whatever else, feel free to find another range that will let you do so. That is part of living in a free country with a capitalist economic system. When I do tactical training, it isn't at this range. You would not expect a single gun to serve every purpose, so why would anyone expect a single range to serve every shooters' needs? I don't know anything about the alleged problems with the one neighbor, but even if some of the information is true, the post below appears to be slanderous.
