I traded a gun for this revolver and some .357 ammo. This might be the manliest revolver ever produced. In fact, its so masculine that it shoulde have a mustache engraved on it somewhere. The porting on the barrel makes it look like some sort of hot rod revolver, and the fact that it holds 8 rounds of .357 Mag……
If you follow me you know I have a gen 2 Glock 22 that was given to me by a friend. The face that its a gen 2 means it was probably made in the early 90′s and the finish on the slide showed that. there was a lot of wear on the front of the gun from holstering I assume. I made the decision that I wanted to turn this Glock into a “race” gun since it was older and it was given to me. I was going to get a 40 to 9mm conversion barrel, get some 9mm mags, a compensation, competition trigger, etc,. It was at this time that I figured “hey, this gun was free and this finish is torn up…. why not do something to it. I had seen a guy at the range one time with a “race glock” and the slide had ghost flames on the muzzle end of the slide. I busted out the dremel and went to work. I got half way finished and my dremel bit broke. Also the flames were a LOT flashier than I wanted….
So the pistol stayed like this for a while until this week I decided to prep the slide to duracoat it. I started to research what color I wanted and came to a decision on that. Before I bought the duracoat I decided to see how hard it would be to prepare the slide for paint. My method was to use a gentle wire brush to get the parkerized finish off, then use 320 grit sandpaper to get a nice consistent piece of metal for the paint. After using the 320 grit, I was really liking the way the slide was coming out so I made a quick decision to continue sanding and see how it came out. Well as you can see in the pictures I think it came out amazing. My method was wire brush, then 320 grit, then 1000 grit, then 2000 grit, then 2500 grit, then never dull polish.
Its perfect. Its not tacky chrome shiny, but it is shiny enough to turn some heads. YOu hardly ever see a two tone glock. I am very pleased with the results and it was surprisingly easy to accomplish.by josh
When the Kimber SIS was made available to the public, it sparked a huge controversy. The thing I find hard to believe is special unit officers in LA who DEPEND on their weapon to run flawlessly wanted a 1911. A Sig would make more sense…. who knows. Anyway, its a badass 1911 with a ton of cool features.by josh
I think the thing that bothers me the most about the New York S.A.F.E. at is that it was written in response to the Sandy Hook tragedy. They used those kids to bush their unconstitutional anti gun agenda hoping it would work in the same way that they used the 9/11 attacks to push the Patriot Act. Im not being insensitive here, in fact I am a parent of 2 kids. The thought of some crazy deranged man coming into an elementary school and shooting kids point blank disturbs the hell out of me. I dont think disarming the good law abiding citizens who want to use a weapon like an AR15 to protect their family is the answer to this county’s gun violence problem. I WISH that I couldve been there carrying my pistol concealed. I may not have stopped anything, and I may have made things worse but at least it wouldve given the “good guys” a chance.
Heres some of the highlights of this amazing piece of legislation:
The above bullet points are from the Wikipedia entry about the S.A.F.E. act.
As I mentioned earlier, I consider a lot of this stuff to be unconstitutional but because they rode the coat tails of Sandy Hook they were able to inact this into law. If I lived in New York, I would most definately pack up and leave the state. I know this is he comrade Obama wants this country to be. Thing is almost as bad as that damn “Patriot Act”.

I get a LOT of crap about this video. The mini 14 guys hate that I used a free floated AR to compare, and the AR guys say the AR is a crappy AR and I needed to use a better one. Here is my argument:
I used a STAINLESS target .223 Mini 14 to compare against a lightweight pencil barrel AR15. To me that means the most accurate mini 14 vs the least accurate AR15. I thought it was a great comparison and I give a big middle finger to everyone that disagrees.by josh
When you have almost 16 inches of quad rail its hard not to go all out, even if the rifle is a .22. When you pull this rifle out of the box, it is ALL black. The mags, the receiver, the rails, everything. Since I am someone who cant stand to look like everyone else at the range, I had to mod and paint my rifle. I am really happy with the way the paint scheme came out, and pretty much everything is functional on it. I have the forward vertical grip/bipod for the majority of shooters and taking long shots and then I have the Magpul AFG mounted in front of that to accommodate my shooting position.by josh
