Wiley X Eye Protection

While cruising thru my email yesterday I noticed that exchange had a sale going on for Wiley X Eye Protection. For those of you wondering what the exchange is, imagine a shopping center for active US military and their dependents. Recently veterans were given access to the exchange online privileges and as such many of us who served are taking advantage of the savings. Anyhow as I said I had a look online as I always wanted another set to replace the ones we had back in the day, back in the fray. When I did an online search to compare pricing which most of us call “research” these days I found that The Gun Room Inc. right here in Portland had them in stock.

If I needed anymore prodding to drive over to the FOPO neighborhood to get a Super Deluxe hamburger and do a bit of gun store browsing this was it. I was surprised to see that The Gun Room Inc. had many different styles to choose from and at pricing that was the same as buying it online from the exchange and waiting. One word of warning if you’re planning a similar trip, if you are trying to get into both stores like I did the Super Deluxe will take awhile if you are around dinner time and The Gun Room Inc. closes at 6pm so plan accordingly.

I called The Gun Room Inc. while I waited for over 1/2 hour in the drive thru line at Super Deluxe and the person named Shaun said he’d wait for me to get there because it was looking like I was going to be late due to Super Deluxe popularity. I can’t thank the wonderful people at The Gun Room Inc. enough for waiting for me to make it and on top of everything giving me a veteran’s discount that made my purchase of Wiley X glasses even cheaper than I could get from the exchange.

The moral to my story is I had a real experience by going out and shopping in person despite my “research” online. I got a delicious hamburger, a great deal on some Wiley X glasses, and I met some great people at my new go to gun shop. Thanks Gun Room!

Thanks for the kind words, it was great meeting you and thank you for your service.

 

Hoyt Archery Summer Savings

I know it’s hard to think about anything when it’s so darn hot outside, but bow season is right around the corner so it’s time to get with the program. Sitting here in The Gun Room Inc’s air conditioned showroom I’m amazed at how many really good Hoyt Archery bows there are available for a song. Granted some are new old stock but the elk don’t care about that one bit.

One thing I noticed is The Gun Room already has the 2019 Hoyt Archery bows in stock and Shaun has even built up a couple of real nice bows that are field/hunt ready. I’m not an Olympic level archer, heck at best I pull a string once or twice a year just to keep fresh and relevant. When I look at the Hoyt Archery bows being built by Shaun I know it’s time to upgrade no matter my skill level because I just can’t pass on a deal like they have going on now.

For some reason I feel I need to own one of the new Hoyt Archery REDWRX Carbon builds Shaun has dangling neatly in front of me as he puts together another one for a customer.

I’m also needing a new quiver of arrows and thankfully Shaun has me covered on that end. When I’m out with my friends it’s good to have arrows that look different than theirs, sort of like golf balls with numbers I guess. The real thing about my arrow selection is I’m color blind. I have to pick fletch colors I can see in the bush for that fact alone.

Yes, the Hoyt Archery REDWRX is looking like it’s finding a new home, and it comes with it’s own case which is a plus because now I don’t need to find one myself or pay any extra money. Thanks Hoyt Archery! There was more archery stuff than I expected to find at The Gun Room Inc. to be honest, and I for sure wasn’t expecting to meet a pro like Shaun there.

Lionheart Regulus Milo’s Pick Of The Week

Milo is squawking about the new Lionheart Regulus models we got in awhile ago. Made in America, right up the road from us in fact. The Lionheart Industries Alpha Regulus model seems to be all the rage right now for beginners and experts alike.

When I first picked up the Lionheart Industries Regulus I was welcomed with a good fit to my hand, a pleasant metal heft and feel, but my feeble mind was blown by the smoothness of the slide and how easy it was to work the action. Even Milo’s bird claw would be able to work the Lionheart Industries Regulus 9mm action.

You don’t have to know anything about guns to tell the Lionheart Industries Alpha Regulus stacks up to the best. It seems like yesterday when Shaun asked Lionheart to spice up the LH9 for him and wolla! They delivered in spades! Here in my over sized hand sits a thing of beauty and craftmanship that goes bang every time I will it. Having several injuries to my old body has pretty much made me a wheel gunner but now I think I can manage the semi-autos again thanks to Lionheart Industries innovative approach to recoil management and slide cycling.

Did I mention this is a US Made Firearm?

I copied Lionheart Industries’ web text below in their own words.

Thanks to The Gun Room Inc. in Portland for putting one of these beauties in my hand, and thanks to Lionheart Industries for making quality sexy again.

 

The Regulus Story

Lionheart began importing our LH9-Series pistol in 2011. The LH9 is the civilian version of the K5, which has reliably served as South Korea’s Military service pistol for almost 30 years. In the years since 2011, the LH9 has become synonymous with quality, functionality, and reliability!

However, at Lionheart, our vision has always been greater than simply importing – our dream is to design and produce pistols in the United States!

In 2015 those dreams started to become a reality, as we began development of our all new American-made line, the Regulus! Lionheart is proud to say that the Regulus Platform is designed, sourced, and produced in the USA! While still based on the same battle-proven design of the LH9, each part of the Regulus has been refined into a high-performance pistol. It is the pinnacle of everything that we’ve dreamed of!

The Regulus platform is completely geared towards you, the shooter. Featuring better materials, improved internals, our Tru-Axis™ Precision Barrel, and a modular platform, it is unlike anything you’ve ever shot before! Our unique Double Action + trigger has been perfected, offering a fluid pull, a painless break, and a crisp reset! Upgraded sight, grip, magazine, and Cerakote® options mean that your Regulus will be the Lionheart you’ve been waiting for!

Moving forward, our vision is still the same as it was in 2011 – Exceptional Comes Standard. We believe in freedom, we strongly support the Second Amendment, and we are honored to join the prestigious group of American firearm manufacturers!

Colt Delta Elite 10mm Milo’s Pick Of The Week

Today while the boys were showing some handguns to a couple of U.S. Marines that came in Milo went into the back and came forward with a Colt Delta Elite 10mm 1911. I guess this week Milo is liking the Colt Delta Elite because he starts squawking every time someone tries to put it back away.

The debate over the 1911 VS any other handgun continues today but so many servicemen and women swear by it that it’ll likely go on forever. Speaking of debates when you start talking about bullets and chamberings everything goes out the window. One caliber that seems to be making more than a blip on the bullet radar is the 10mm.

Way up north in Alaska more people are carrying the 10mm as their backup replacing the old reliable 44 Magnum in many cases. The people who jumped on the .40 cal bandwagon have come around and are now snapping up Colt Delta Elites to scratch that power and speed itch.

The Colt Delta Elite 10mm 1911 equates to a very well thought out platform for the 10mm cartridge and the power it holds. People who like a handgun that shoots well and don’t want to compromise by switching to a diminutive caliber love the Colt Delta Elite because it checks all the boxes off.

FN Five-seveN® Milo’s Pick Of The Week

Milo was digging around in the back of the shop looking for some peanuts or other treats he stashed when all of a sudden there came a squawking. Turns out Milo found some FN Five-seveN® stock that wanted out of the box. Those of you who were able to get these when we had them (before the military and police designations) will remember how much fun they were. I’ll put FN’s blurb at the bottom of this post.

Imagine a pistol that holds 20 .556 caliber rounds in a magazine, then shrink down the ammo, magazine, pistol and get rid of the buffer tube and spring you were undoubtable thinking of and you have a FN Five-seven®. If you’re still with me you begin to see what the fuss is all about and you’re lacing up your boots to get down to The Gun Room Inc. to get one. Do you feel lucky? That’s what you’ll have to be to get your non- military or police hands on one today. We have a very few of these left and once they’re gone your luck runs out.

I’ve been wanting to get my mom one of these for her daily life on the property with all of the critters she comes across. The problem is they are so hard to get ammo for right?

Well color me surprised! I was able to have ammo on Monday from an order on Friday so it’s pretty easy to get legit ammo it seems. To me the real problem is now I have to decide if mom is getting one or I am!

Sure, it’s a gun made out of plastic that goes for well North of $1000, and frankly not even close to my style but…. Milo sure knows how to pick winners for being a parrot! Lightweight, high firepower, multiple mag fun sitting right in front of me with only a form 4473 standing in my way. I think you know how this story is going to end.

If you are just reading this you had already be reaching for the keys or you will miss out on this FN Five-seven® pistol until next time Milo goes on a treasure hunt in the tactical armory.

FN’s blurb is below.

“The FN Five-seveN® pistol was developed in the early 1990s and features a cold hammer-forged barrel that is chrome-lined for extended service life. The polymer-framed FN Five-seveN® offers single-action operation, low felt recoil, 20-round magazine capacity, and is equipped with an ambidextrous, forward-mounted manual safety, and an accessory rail that accepts tactical lights and lasers.

Stormy Kromer Hats

Realizing it’s officially summer and toasty outside this posting may find you folks wondering if I’m crazy or not talking about wool hats. Hear me out because it’ll make sense in a minute.

Not too long ago I found myself looking for my old Stormy Kromer hat to wear out on a SAR mission. It was blustery and cold with a wind that wouldn’t stop that felt like it came from all directions! Snow was mixed in with rain and sleet making the day on the Zodiac a miserable one. It was at this point I remember a young lady borrowing my old Stormy Kromer and not bringing it back one winter morning.

I had been on the look out for another hat that was all business with all day comfort ever since then. Considering that my missing hat was my grandpa’s and had been worn for millions of miles in the woods and on the water I figured it was nothing but a memory.

I stumbled into The Gun Room in Portland after a media mission and low and behold to my amazement was the exact same hat, in my size, ready to go to a good home. I bought it on the spot and put in in my rescue bag post haste! Now when I’m able I’m going back to Portland and visiting The Gun Room again to get the Stormy Kromer jacket and vest for my hunting adventures.

Highly recommended!

 

Thanks for stopping in! It was a pleasure meeting you and hearing about your adventures.
