Is there any unmagnified red dot sight that can be mounted in a 30mm scope ring mount?

It's like I'm trying to dodge the tactical as much as possible by avoiding rail mounting but it seems I am trying my hand at retardation.

Dude, hit me up. I have a spare aimpoint clone from PrimaryArms you can try out (with a high (ar15) mount though). c4t3 is also local to us if you were considering buying his aimpoint. He is good people.

Anyone who's snappy with photoshop care to make a banner for Southern Michigan Arms? I'm advertising at armslist.com. I need a jpg w/the dimensions of 100x600 (it's a vertical banner). Nothing fancy, not too picky. I'll give whomever does it dealer pricing on whatever they're looking for. Just email me at sales@somiarms.com

Will SOG sell guns to a non-FFL and ship it to one? Or are they just FFL to FFL buisness? Because I want one of those USP's

Is it possible to convert an OD green polymer gun to black via dying or other non-Duracoat method? Is Duracoat the best way? Is it all way too much work for crappy results?

You can't really dye the frame as it is. Duracoat returns pretty nice results.

That's probably true, I was thinking of stuff like vinyl dye and Krylon Fusion that don't deal well with nylon polymers. I wonder if it would stand up to cleaning solvents though.

Edit: some people used RIT to dye their nylon knife handles and seemed to get good results but not particularly durable to wear

I've been looking to get a first gen P99 for cheap (<$400), and I found one for a great price but it has an OD frame. Just wondering if I should hold out for what I really want (black) or get this one and "convert" it, and if that's possible without compromising the integrity of the plastic or looking awful.

No, FFL to FFL only. I bought one of those USPs. I showed the link to my usual transfer FFL guy, he placed the order, and I paid him instead of SOG. It was actually easier than ordering straight from SOG.

I'm sure this has been posted somewhere, but I can't for the life of me find it; what's that site which lets you search all the main ammunition sites for the best prices? I can't seem to find the one I remember looking at.

\/\/ That's it, thanks. Too bad they don't seem to have anything for what I'm looking for. If anyone knows where to get decently priced new 6.5x50 Japanese, I'm all ears.

Speaking of SOG, their latest flyer is advertising some K98s for around $279. At this price, I'm assuming they're probably RCs?

EDIT: I know G43 is advertising an RC K98 in the classifieds as well. I really need to pay off the M1c I bought first. So many guns, so little monies

I'm told there's a trick to this, and I'm working on it in my backyard with airsoft (I can't close only one eye). Something about simply ignoring the input from your non-dominant eye.

In any event, as people have said, you always focus on the front sight.

My right eye must be waaay dominant. If I try to use both eyes, then close my left eye my vision doesn't shift at all. Since my vision in my right eye is better than my left anyways, I shoot like a pirate.

Something that worked for me and some other people, but not for everyone: Put a small piece of tape on your shooting glasses that covers your front sight from your non-dominant eye. This ie easier said than done, so it will take some time to find the right spot and size (small!). Shoot like that for a while and it will help you learn how the proper focus feels with both of your eyes.

I've done that before and it works well, I just want to develop my shooting without it because I won't always have tape on my glasses.

As far as I can tell, it's a matter of figuring out which of the two targets you see is the right one and dealing with the fact that it's a little fuzzy.

Anyone know about how much a Savage 110 Lefty in .30-06 is worth? I saw one in the gun shop, first lefty I have seen there, and it is $250. So tempting, even though I was looking for a shotgun that I could use for hunting and HD.

Seems like a decent price. Gunbroker only has a few 110's listed as left handed, but they're moon caliber. Cheapest is $330 with one bid at the moment.

Also, are you a re-reg or did you pick the TFRiest name in the book for fun?

I think the second one. I lurked since some point in 2009, and Cyrano mentioned someone needed to take the username .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer in some discussion or another.

It even comes with a bushnell scope on it. I know bushnell isn't great, but it is better than nothing, right? Really tempted right now. I'll sleep on it, at least. I don't think we get enough left-handed shooters for it to sell in the last 2 hours they are open tonight.
