Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Ruger's new 57 pistol

Ruger has a new pistol in caliber 5.7x28mm. I checked at Buds Guns and they sell them for $679.00. But they are out of stock.

They are tapped for adding red dot sights.

I'm thinking about adding one to my collection.

Saw one used at a busy gun shop 2 weeks ago, didn’t handle it and it was priced at like $600-something. I won’t be buying any 57 till they lower the price to what any other plastic gun should be at tops $500, especially with ass rape ammo prices.

Saw ammo for .50 cents a round online. Problem, you had to order it in a 2000 round case.

It is a little bit on the pricey side. It should come down some as that round becomes more popular, I would think.

Another handgun I'm interested in is the Rock Island Armory 22 TCM 1911.

It has a velocity of over 2,000 fps.

My understanding is they started with a .223 case, shortened it and necked it down to take a jacketed 40-grain .22 hollowpoint, which it pushes out of the pistol at around 2000fps.

First acquaintance with this was a guy shooting one on the range, a combination of a roar like a .44 Mag but the pistol barely moved in recoil. I watched a few shots and said "I don't know what he's shooting, but I want one." Few days ago had the chance to fire a magazine through one.

At $739 sale price, they can KMA! Thats more than full price they are charging
at the gun shops. They are charging full MSRP, non-sale price. No Thanks, I can wait.

Even high priced brownells has it listed for only $684.
