Happy Guy Fawkes day!

"Remember, remember the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder treason and plot. I know of no reason the Gunpowder treason should ever be forgot..."

We are the gun lobby

First in the news, election in Seattle - unfortunately, a net loss for the gun community. It looks like Tywin LannisterBurgess will be retaining his Council position, and so will be the majority of the incumbents who were running. The only bright spot is - Sandy Brown has lost the race decisively.

This was not unexpected.

Gun community has been focusing on electing Republicans as a way to preserve the gun rights since conservatives took over NRA during the Reagan Administration, thus automatically ceding the ground to gun control activists in every major city where Republicans are not electable. For instance, there was not a single Republican running for City Council in Seattle.

This is a losing strategy. Targeting only Republicans means that 50% of the population is lost to the gun cause. And since not all Republicans are gun friendly, this means that legislatively gun community is doomed to lose. For the time being, courts are on our side, but guess what - Second Amendment is a law, and laws can be changed through a democratic process. If the gun community does not enjoy the support of majority of the population, it will eventually start loosing the legal battles as well.

Compare it to AIPAC - the Israeli lobby - who has a 100% lock on US politics, right AND left. While I do not think much about their cause, they are amazingly successful, and there is much and more that the gun community can learn here.

So while the lawsuit challenging the Seattle gun "tax" is slowly moving through the courts, we are going to be building an organization which will work with liberal politicians in areas such as Seattle, educating them about guns and effective - and ineffective - methods of gun control, fielding and supporting gun-friendly liberal candidates to challenge those firmly in the gun control camp, and working with Olympia to strengthen state level preemption legislation.

New cool stuff!

We have received a bunch of super rare guns.

KelTecs

The rarest of them all is KelTec Sub2000. The one we have is in 9mm and uses Glock magazines. They typically last in stock for hours - the countdown has just started!

Price: $499.95 (in stock)

Another Unicorn form the KelTec family is PMR-30 in tan color.

Price: (currently unavailable)

We have been rather lucky to maintain a decent collection of KelTec guns, despite their rarity, in stock. We have KSGs, PLRs, and every SU carbine. Here is the full list:

Smith & Wesson 41

The second rarest gun in our collection is not the KelTec though. It is the 7" Smith & Wesson model 41 - a super accurate 22lr pistol. S&W makes only a few a year. This is the third gun that went through our store since opening. They are in fact so rare, that I myself own one that I bought used - because I did not think I will ever see a new one.

Price: (currently unavailable)

Smith & Wesson 17 "Masterpiece"

And while we are on topic of Smith & Wesson guns, please take a look at this gem - S&W K-17 "Masterpiece" - a super accurate and beautiful 22lr revolver.

Price: $869.95 (in stock)

Ruger Single Six 17HMR

Another super rare revolver we have in stock - only one! - is Ruger Single Six in 17HMR. We have this gun in stock because of this review. And by the way, our price on it is awesome!

Price: $479.95 (in stock)

Bulgarian Makarov

Bulgarian Makarovs

The trickle of surplus guns has its ebbs and flows, but recently it was mostly ebbing. It has been almost a quarter century since the communist block has dissolved, so the rates with which the surplus firearms in these countries are being pillaged are slowing down. In the very beginning, a lot of the guns were basically stolen during the privatization frenzy, and quickly sold off to the world's biggest civilian gun market. So we had $80 SKS rifles, $40 Mosin Nagants, and so on.

Well, these times are gone, and if you were able to stock up on $80 Russian SKSes, you have been well ahead of the stock market, as they are now selling in the vicinity of $600.

A few surplus pistols are still in the pipeline though - most reliably, Polish P64 and various variants of Tokarev pistols, in particular, the still-in-production M57.

Bulgarian Makarov were gone for almost 3 years now, and I thought that they would be gone for good - but a fresh batch recently appeared out of nowhere, as it often happens with milsurplus hardware. This specific batch is quite interesting - of the 4 pistols I've seen, all appeared to be in unissued condition. They come coated in cosmoline, with 2 magazines, a pair of black grips, a pair of red star grips, and a holster. They are sold almost everywhere for $300-330 plus shipping and transfer, which adds another $40 or more to the deal.

We have bought a few to see how they sell - and still have 1 in stock.

Book shop!

Many few years ago I worked at Google as a software engineer. When I joined the company, I was given a few books which every Noogler (new Googler) was expected to read. Among them was the book by Joshua Bloch, Effective Java (2nd Edition).

I started reading it one evening, and could not stop until - very late into the night - I gulped down the last page. After this binge reading I was left with one overwhelming thought - that it was silly for me to even start programming before reading this book.

Glen Zediker's books to an AR shooter are what "Effective Java" is to a software developer - a must read. Unfortunately, they are rarely available anywhere outside Amazon's used books channel. We at Precise Shooter decided to fix this problem - so we present you with an almost full line-up of Zediker's Publishing books on AR-15.

Ammunition!

Ammunition market continues to ease up. Manufacturers are now competing on price, with many popular brands - Magtech, S&B, CCI - becoming available at wholesale prices below $0.20/round, which allows us to hold prices at below $11/box of 50. Likewise, 40S&W and 45ACP are trending down, and we now have a few fantastic deals on our hands.

In particular, we have Magtech "Shooting Size" packs for less than $0.30 per round, Federal 45ACP Suppressor-ready ammunition for $25.99/50rd box, and PMC eRange (lead-free primer) ammunition for $24.99/50rd box.

Even Rimfire is staging a come back. We were lucky to be able to maintain a pretty decent inventory throughout the crisis, without resorting to price gouging, but at times our supplies of affordable plinking ammunition were razor thin.

Luckily, these times seem to be past us. We are still limiting 22LR and 22WMR purchases to 100rd (we have some 300 and 325 rd bricks that we will sell you with the purchase of the rifle), but we have no limits at all on 22lr Quiet, 17WSM and 17HMR ammunition - all of which we are selling at normal, pre-craze prices.
