Since my deal for the nickel-plated Makarov fell through, I may or may not be buying a new gun depending on what I find. I'll be scouring the show hunting for one of the following:
Zastava Md. 70
FEG PP Clones (PA-63, BR-61, etc.)
Forecast changed to:
Couldn't make it to the range. sorry. I was at the show till after 3:00.
It was a good show. As I mentioned, my deal for the plated Makarov didn't work out, so I was there with the $$$ I had budgeted for that purchase. Didn't find any FEG Walther clones, and all the Star BM's were pretty worn. I ended up sort of throwing caution to the wind and picking up a beautiful stainless Llama Micromax .380. If you don't know, this is a compact 1911-based pistol made in Spain, it looks just like the Colt Compact Government .380 and seems to be mechanically identical, but the Llama cost a lot less. I've never bought a gun without doing extensive research before. Tried it out at the range, it is quite accurate, and has a nice crisp trigger pull, but I did have a couple failure-to-feeds with hollowpoints, but the action seemed to get better after 100 rounds, as I expected. Gave it a good cleaning when I got home.
It breaks down just like a 1911, so it's a bit more complicated than my Makarov. But the Llama is also quite a bit thinner and lighter, and the finish is beautiful. We'll see how it turns out. Having lived in Spain as a kid, I always wanted one of the Spanish pistols.
New to Forum. Need directions please...
I am looking on how to contact and drive to Windy Hill in Elkin. I am mostly a clay target shooter and am always looking for a new place to shoot. I live in Asheboro and shoot at Ohpir Skeet Field almost exclusively.
Found Windy Hill Trading Post
Hope its better than the one at Charlotte Merchandise Mart couple weeks ago; dismal show, short on dealers, and short on customers. Couple dealers pulled out on Sat night.
Ted, Lexington NC area.
Raleigh area FFL's
I'm going to be looking to do an FFL transfer to Raleigh in the next couple weeks, I thought someone had posted a good list of the local FFL's, but I can't find it anywhere.
So does anyone know who's got the cheapest FFL transfers in the area? The major stores all seem to be in the $30 range (PDHSC, Davi's, Young Guns, Gunworks). Anyone got a better deal than that?
I just stumbled across this thread...I do all my xfers at "east Raleigh jewelry & loan" ; a pawnshop on smithfield rd. in Knightdale. He charges me $10 per. Don't know if that's the homeboy discount or his regular price, I buy stuff there regularly. the owner, James, is pretty friendly. give them a call.
Welcome- I go to NCSU as well. ME major, NROTC midshipman. Got my range pass for PDHSC, probably going to get my membership there soon. I'll also be taking the CCW class in the near future.
