    I just went to drop off a couple RI-60 forms and saw someone paying for a purchase permit! I thought the law did not allow that. I asked the lady behind the window and she said that the $5 charge was for the purchase permit to be notarized. Is this legal?

    Tell me about the P-64

    A guy I know is selling a Polish P-64 pistol chambered in 9x18 Makarov. It comes with two mags, has a trigger job, and he says that it works great. What would be a normal price for this gun? Is there anything to look out for in terms of reliability or function?

    Where the heck is it?!?

    I've been googling for what seems like HOURS now (but is most likely just a very intense half hour) and I cannot for the life of me find the section of law that states what I am allowed to do as a CPL holder. (How I may carry my pistol.) Can someone please point me in the right direction?

    Finishes: Blued vs. Parkerized vs. Nickel

    imported post If I want a black 1911, is that 'blued'? Or is a blued finish just dark but not black? What's parkerized mean? I know what nickel looks like but thought I'd include it in case anyone wants to comment on it. Let this be a discussion on finishes.
