If anyone is interested in talking guns :-)
Recently I bought a Ruger Wrangler. While I was at the store,
my wife saw a Ruger AR-556 pistol that she liked. That was a
Saturday. After we got home she kept talking about it.
Sunday, she still talked about it, but we had church and then
Monday we had some stuff to do, so Tuesday we made the drive
back to the store and brought it home. :-)
About a month goes by and our youngest son brought his new
gun out to shoot - a Keltec Sub 2000 9mm Glock version. She
shot it and looked at me and smiled, so guess what was the
next thing I started hunting down. LOL
So we started calling around and hunting one down - hard
to find! Called a store in Dickson last Saturday and they
had one, but it was almost closing time and it was black -
she thought she wanted a Bronze one, but then as the weekend
went on she decided she'd rather have a black one than have
to wait - LOL - she's not very patient. :-) Plus she looked
online at the black versus the bronze and other colors and
decided she liked the look of the black one anyway, so...
They were closed Monday for Memorial Day, so Tuesday FIRST
THING I called and the owner answered. "No, no SUB 2000
right now - haven't had on in a while" so he took my
number. Five minutes later he called back. Turns out they
DID have one in the system - that's what the guy was going
by Saturday - but it wasn't on the shelf. They found it in
the back, still in the box. Been there since March and they
agreed to hold it for us.
Wife took her mom to the doctor, then we made the two hour
ONE WAY drive to get it. :-) Next day, she shot it and
likes it, but the charging handle is WAY heavy and hard for
her to pull! I started doing some looking around online and
found that MCARBO makes a TWO FINGER one, as well as a trigger
kit and other things. I ordred the two finger charging pull
for her and did some other looking around on their site...
We both have S&W M&P Shield .40's for our carry guns. MCARBO
makes a 'trigger kit' for the SUB 2000, but it's over $100.
I'm sure it's worth it, but my wife is not concerned about
the trigger pull on the rifle, and that's a lot to spend on
a brand new gun that's not even broken in <g> but the
... Help stamp out, eliminate and abolish redundancy!
