The Water Cooler -- General Discussions / Hello from NJ
« Last post by mikejd on Today at 08:51:41 AM »
Hello all. Recently purchased my first R9 after many years of lusting.
Actually purchased it back in May but since I live in the communist state of NJ it took until last week to get all the paperwork in order since there was a state transfer etc.

Anyway, well worth the wait. I have handled them many times before but until it's yours you can't fully apreciate the craftsmanship.
Now I just need to get to the range.

The Water Cooler -- General Discussions / Modern Sporting Rifles
« Last post by MikeInTexas on July 26, 2016, 03:37:50 PM »
Just looking at some prices online and thinking about the future.

I think right now we are in a lull between the buying panics.  New legislation is on hold, the election is still far enough out, no executive action pending, inventory high and prices low, etc.  I think this will change as we get closer to the election.  Probably get some executive action right before the current occupant of the White House leaves office.  I feel hillary will bring on a new set of legislation that will not have the same work arounds that they have passed laws with in the past.  I fear they have learned and will hit us hard this time.

For me this is the ideal time to consider buying supplemental modern sporting rifles (AR-15) as a hedge against future changes.

Here in Texas, we are not under any magazine restrictions and new AR magazines are running $<10 for metal and about $12-18 for Magpul 30 and 40 rounders.
Prices on normal capacity pistol magazines seem to be lower than in recent years and the supply is high.  Picked up a couple factory CZ-75 16 round count magazines for less than $25 each.

I can still purchase AR lowers for about $65 - $100.
80% build your own AR lowers are $<90, will probably do a couple of those to try em' out, and get 'off paper' rifles built.

AR Parts kits are available online for $<400.

So a assemble yourself basic rifle is under $500.

AKs seem a little pricey, but are available. (traded the last of my AK years ago, never looked back.)

The Tavors, Sigs, FNs and other similar rifles are available.

Gun show tables are full of stock, and people seem to be buying, just not in a panic and at high prices we have seen in the recent pass.


I figure I am no longer purchasing guns for myself as much as I am for the younger generation that will follow me.  Trusts set up for both the NFA items, regular firearms and other important things.  So any transfer ban gets pushed 60+ years down the road for us.  Probably get a few more rifles in the next month along with a good supply of magazines and military grade ammo.  M855/SS109 is running around $0.40 each online now, and I think it will be a target of legislation after the first of the year.  So a few thousand rounds more of that may get buried in the woods along with a couple of rifles, LOL.



Hate to see any of you guys look back next year and think, I should have gotten somethings when the times were good..........................

What else can one say about John Kerry.   Like Mr. Obama. . . . In my estimation. . . . both are buffoons. . . . . but hey, that's just me. What do I know. lol

Welcome aboard Mr. L . . . . .  I believe once you shoot that RM380 for a while, you may indulge yourself in a gift . . . . . A Rohrbaugh R9 pedigree. . . . just because that's what we do in life. lol. 

Once again, welcome to the forum.

Rohrbaugh R9 (all variations) / Re: Remington Micro 380
« Last post by ECR on July 26, 2016, 07:28:12 AM »

Don't get me wrong, the R-380 is a wonderful gun of its own right...

However, when Remington came out with a .380 ACP after all that time, it felt like an admission of defeat to me.  That could not have been their goal.

You just can't mass produce a Ferrari on a Ford assembly line...

Also agree. . . . . In working with them in 2014 in their R&D department for that short time during the transfer, head of R&D mentioned they wanted to introduce the RM380 first and then reintroduce their R51 with considerable updating in the quality. After that, they had planned on bringing out the R9 but not after they felt comfortable with their updated design of the pistol. On a side note. . . . Karl and I did finally receive our RM380 pistols from Remington and in our opinions they actually did a nice job on them. They shoot well and after a box of ammo was put through them, the trigger was not too bad at all for what it is. We feel they did a good job making the R9 Series Pistol for the price point they are at.

Hillary isn't too far behind. Maybe Teresa Heinz Kerry has ditched all of her refrigerants to save us from global warming.

What puts us in most danger is Obama. Period.

"Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State."

Today I took my trusty 9mm and shot both my AC and the fridge.  I feel much safer now.
