Does anyone have experience / reviews for Remora holsters?

I'm trying to select a pocket holster for my Kahr CM9 and was just going to get another Desantis Nemesis, but the Remora looks like it would be a good option. There are a few pairs of pants that IWB carry is not going to work for this particular pistol, so I need a pocket carry option.

They can also be used for IWB, but if it didn't work well there, I'd get an additional holster made of kydex for that role, probably a PJ holster.

I'm also considering some of their mag holders. They can also accommodate flashlights, so it seems attractive, but then again if they are junk then they aren't good for anything.

So, naturally, the concussion and noise of the SBR with the brake really gets on some nerves. I've never been asked to throw the can on it though or cut it out by management.

As for the used amazon section, I'm not sure if there is a way to access it directly. I have seen that if you look at a specific item you're interested in, it has new and used prices most times and if you click the used prices, you can get descriptions, etc. of what is available.
A couple of years ago a buddy of mine and I went shooting and he brought out "the big guns", namely his .44 magnum and .50 AE. He was politely told by the management that he was disturbing the other customers, and they asked him to leave. He said "sure, no problem."

As far as I know, he's never been back.

^ that one was funny...this one is horrible/tragic

http://news.yahoo.com/police-boy-7-s...200049283.html


Story doesn't make any sense to me at least. Aside from the obvious of somehow shooting his kid, he was looking to sell these things. Did he actually walk into a store with a loaded firearm to trade it?

Right by me. Several news stations have reported different stories as to how the gun went off......Something smells very fishy

Anyone here own or know much about CZ Tactical Sports?

Oh, and I also am about to put a Walther PPQ in jail on the 15th. Wasn't looking to buy anything like it right now, but after reading literally 100's of reviews of how amazing it is, I had to get one to see what everyone is talking about. Anyone have or shot one here?

I have been reading an unending flood of positive comments about the PPQ and PPS. Sounds like it's a pretty highly rated firearm.

I have not used a CZ75, but there is a pretty strong following behind those guns and I really haven't heard anything negative about them.

I know how it went off.... The trigger was pulled
If he followed just one of the three safety rules, put the gun in a holster or cleared it properly...
His kid would still be alive

Sad... But he failed

We had a recent incident where a 4yo shot his infant brother with a loaded handgun. All over the news, journalists are reporting that the father was told by a firearms trainer "that it's okay to store a loaded firearm in the house, as long as the safety is on". You'd have to be an idiot to leave a loaded handgun under the pillow on your bed, and that's what happened and how the 4yo got ahold of the gun. No lock box, no vault, no locked drawer, nothing. The father is not really being held accountable, and so far I have not once heard any journalist mention how it's a gross misdemeanor in the state of Minnesota to store or leave a firearm where it is accessible to children.
There's no amount of training or lock boxes that can solve outright stupidity.

Mine is always loaded, with the safety off....However, it is locked in a safe.

If I shot and killed my own son/daughter, I would kill myself, no way I would be able to live with that

^nice

I'm starting to think I should get in on this business somehow. I mean, look at how much some of this stuff costs and look at how many of them they're selling. The AAC cans I've bought have, aside from the Element, been $800+. The geissele triggers are $175+. And for what? The suppressor probably costs like $250-300 to design and develop with the amount they manufacture and sell and the trigger probably is like $30 in parts and $50 in development per trigger. Companies are making a killing on these things and while I acknowledge insurance, legal, and other overhead costs there is some serious, serious money being made at the moment. I need to find a niche...we all do. Lets make a Fanatics firearm company to manufacture something. You, me, Reedo, Serbonze, tailo, and maybe one or 2 others. Between us, we should have the knowledge to pull it off technically and business-wise. We just need a product...

So, the delivery date for my SureFire X300 Ultra weaponlight has been pushed back to some time in January.
Can't say I'm happy about this...

I can contribute engineering time...

The worst of all are the free float rails. How hard is it to take a chunk of box steel tubing, throw it into a CNC machine, and let it go? Certainly not $300 worth of time...and especially not when they are made by the thousands.

In glad they refused it from the buy-back program. It would be a shame to melt that down.
