  1. Curious to see if BUL becomes the next go to entry gun to get.
  2. I'm not defending s#!t quality by any means. I have two STIs that have been back for warranty work sub 4000 rounds that were 100% manufacture defects.
  3. I 100% believe we as competition shooters made ourselves very unappealing to them.
  4. Isn't it?! Its a double edged sword. People gripe that they want our officers/deputies to have more training but when it comes to tax time to pay for it........
  5. I have seen some LEOs with non issued guns. In fact one that stands out was one with a 1911. What caught my attention was the 800 single stack mags he had on the belt LOL. But a lot of agencies go against this due to liabilities associated with it. Like Ssanders says, its whose behind the helm.
  6. Same here. 15 years. While I agree 100% with your statement of who is behind the helm, this is more of an outlier than the norm.
  7. Most likely you are gonna be past that 1-2 year mark anyways.
  8. Most agencies across the country do not have the budget to outfit the staff with 2011 style pistols. My full time gig deals with this. Hell they don't even have the ammo budget we would all want them to have. The smaller departments make up the majority of the agencies across the US so I don't see them going after regular department contracts. Most likely as mentioned above, trying to hit the larger budget agencies. This doesn't make sense to me cause they are way fewer.
  9. Had the same thoughts here too haha. To be honest, these are just tools in my mind. Not looking to spend family heirloom money. That way I don't cry as hard if I bump into a bench or another shooter. Curious to see what or if this changes the 2011 Custom market.
  10. I run a few DVC opens that were early gens with issues but after a great warranty experience with STI they run great. Knock on wood three times.
  11. Stings a little but we really saw it coming. https://stiguns.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/STI-Firearms-LLC-LIMITED-LIFETIME-WARRANTY-120419.pdf Probably the most stand out line item to is :Use of a metal grip expressly voids the warranty.
  12. My .02 on the Limcats ( I own two). Despite looking like cray, the steel holds up well. However Im concerned about my feed lips over time.
  13. Picked one up last week primarily because I heard it was drop in on the STI frame. Hot dang and it was. Fitting my last two EVO grips left me with gray hairs. I have issues with filing and patience which tends to lead to expensive mistakes. So far Im 100% happy with the Cheely. Only setback is the proprietary parts for it but they work Im good with that. Grip, Mag release, and magwell for the same price I paid for my Evos. Pic for pron.....
  14. Resurrecting this from the grave as I just purchased a photography drone not too long ago. Here are my thoughts. Drones really are the next evolution for filming options. Some people tend to fear new things and simply want to whine and moan about something they don't understand. I work in a field that introduces a new thing to people set in their ways all the time and have even seen people quit their job over not wanting to learn a new product. Distractions can be a real concern but let's have a real talk. There are guns going off around you and a slight humming (Newer Drones) is distracting you? If it's above the berm, What the hell are you doing looking there instead of the targets and your movement? If a bird flys across the berm, are you going to stop and demand a reshoot? When I'm shooting a stage, I don't even notice the RO right on me. I think where the distraction is going to be a legitimate concern is when you have someone filming shooters within the bay and without their approval. Having too many amatuer users out there trying to use drones isn't going to end well. It just takes one incident to ruin it for all of us.
