I guess the Commodore 64 finally died. Ebay is out of parts too. Can't they just call the Geek Squad and get it fixed?

I had an issue this morning, trying to log in. Sent an email to the firearm purchase section and was back up by noon. Everything seems to be working now. They must have figured out the bug.

No we will not. Good luck to everyone looking for these. Federal agencies are not allowed to sell their surplus directly to employees or others. Usually they sell them in a lot to the new supplier...

I can confirm that my agency is dropping the Sig Sauer P229 in .357 Sig in favor of the 9mm Glock. Several reasons, most of them I agree with:

Bigger bullets are deadlier

I always believed that accurate bullets are deadlier. If you don't hit where you're aiming, what's the point?

More than likely, the department had to downgrade to 9mm, to accommodate all officers and shooting abilities. Couple that with 9mm being cheaper than 40 S&W rounds and I'm not surprised at the...

4506 mags

Anyone know where to pickup some factory mags at a reasonable price? $40-$50 per mag is kind of steep. Pro mags are junk, any experience with Triple K? Thanks
