    I know this post is a few months old, but just wanted to mention that this gun is showing some problems.  From barrel peening to broken parts, it’s not holding-up well for some people.

    Not a first choice, because it’s full-sized, but the M&P Sport 2 AR’s look interesting, but they need a new barrel to be silenced, right?

    Still would like a pistol-style with a brace, so it’s small.

    Check out Deadfoot Arms. They’ve got a modified cycling system that drops into and AR and allows the stock to fold and still allow the weapon to be functional. It does this by eliminating the buffer spring and tube. Pair this with a pistol style AR and your overall length is going to be shortened significantly.

    Back to the OP: Where are you located? In the CR area, I’d go talk to Ernie at Cedar Valley Outfitters. Clinton/Quad Cities – Elliott Farro at Farro’s Lead Farm in Low Moor.

    Am currently working overseas in Korea, but we will be relocating to Ankeny after finishing this next contract.

    Well, would use it for target practice fun, also. Hopefully make it a family thing. Just don’t want to go deaf, or family have hearing hurt, if even had to use it. I’m already half-way there.

    Thanks, all.

    I was talking to my dad about it. Sounds like my uncle may want first dibs on the gun, which is fine.

    I also learned that this gun breaks down into 2 pieces, but grandpa rarely did it, because they could go loose from doing it.

    It may become a wall-hanger somewhere, at least. Got some good names for restoring it, if needed.

    Much appreciated, and glad to get the 20ga home defense suggestion. Any thoughts on a 410 for home defense? Sonething my tiny wife would be less afraid of?

    I’m just assuming this is a “NO,” but thought I’d ask.

    I have my Iowa CCW. My wife is Korean, and will be applying for her green card in a few months (we live overseas, but moving back). I still have Iowa ties, and residency.

    I’m assuming it’s not possible for a green card holder to obtain a CCW? How about gun use in the home, in the event of an emergency?

    Thanks.

    Having a CCW and using a gun are two different things. You don’t have to be an American to use a gun here in the states. I am pretty sure you can travel here and hunt. Using the gun at a range, outside or in a home will be fine.

    She simply cant carry in concealed.

    Well, it appears that she can (at least according to this site?)

    Does Iowa issue Iowa Concealed Weapons Permit to resident aliens with a green card?
    Yes, Resident Aliens can apply for a Iowa Weapon Permit. On the application form there is a field to enter your alien registration # (ARN) or I-94 non-immigrant admission #.

    That response from Sig is written by a bunch of lawyers.

    They’re trying to fix things without admitting any guilt.

    They need to RECALL these guns, and FIX them, before somebody dies. Not offer some “voluntary” crap.

    My opinion of Sig just dropped a few notches.

    Looks like I answered my own question. With CCW, I appear to be OK. Google search seems to selectively word the main search oddly, until you dig deeper.

    I live in Korea, where nobody has personal firearms at home.

    In fact, you can get a hunting license, and a shotgun, but you must leave it locked at the police station, and check it in/out. That was all hunky-dory, until a few years ago, when some nut went to the cop shop, checked his out, and promptly drove home and killed a few in-laws with it.

    Since that time, you cannot even get your gun by yourself. You have to appear with either 1 or 2 hunters — TOGETHER — to be able to check out your gun.

    How’s that for nuts?

    As for me in the USA, I’d keep a shotgun close-by, in a safety container, with none in the chamber, but loaded. A biometric lock would be good. I don’t want to wake up from a hard sleep, and have to count on being awake enough to think straight. Last summer, the phone rang, and I jumped up, then ran across the room to get it before I’d actually fully awoke. I slammed my foot into the corner of a heavy chair, and put the bone of my toe right through the end. Blood everywhere. That, and I’ve developed an essential tremor, which is exacerbated by surprise. This is also why I have switched to revolvers, and guns with heavier triggers.

    I’d rather have a trained dog, to be honest. Access to my firearm need not be immediate, unless I’m wearing it CCW, in public.

    You have the right attitude about moving.

    If there is one thing I would have changed — I would have moved out of the state, and into the world, from a younger age.

    An Iowa education, and work ethic is just not something you find in many parts of the US (or the world). It’s an asset that few young people realize they have.

    Get out and experience the world. I look back at spending ten years in Iowa after graduating university, and just shake my head. Not a bad place to end up, but it’s far too slow of a place to start.

    Hankook and Nexen are both Korean brand tires (I live in Seoul now).

    😆 I had some mystery bird shot shells in the door of my hunting truck, all the writing was wore off, they were all rusted and corroded, been rained on , in and out of heat and cold for the last 7-8 years. I pulled them out this weekend, wiped em off, and shot three of them, all of them went bang and ejected.

    I have some in a shell holder in my waders that are pretty crusty and they haven’t hiccuped yet…

    I think it is preppers wasting time and showing off to their chronies that they can store stuff and make sure it is ready for the zombie apocalypse…

    I have shot 40 year old ammo my Grampa had. Keep in mind he never had air conditioning. 90% humidity all summer long. Some in the unheated machine shed all winter. Always amazed when some one has 10’s of thousands of round for when all heck breaks loose. They have pretty high opinion of their shooting abilities to believe the are going to get off that many rounds in a fire fight, before someone nails them.

    True, but some people view it as an investment for trade, better than money.

    Ozone in unusually high amounts will damage your lungs.

    Been there, and caught pneumonia. Really, bad pneumonia.

    I lived in a one-room apartment, and had one of those ozone air cleaners, which was popular about 15 years ago. What I thought was cleaning my air, was actually making me very sick.

    https://www.arb.ca.gov/research/indoor/ozone.htm

    Not something to screw around with. If you insist on using any form of ozone generator, make sure you air out your car, or whatever, before you sit in there and breathe it. And for sure — don’t run the thing when you’re in the car..

    http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/institute/a24056/health-hazard-air-purifiers-ozone/

    The manufacturers of these products have been claiming that the
    ozone removes indoor air contaminants and acts likes an air freshener as its
    sweetish smell (think of the odor in the air during a thunderstorm) masks other
    odors. But what they aren’t telling you is that ozone (O3) is a lung
    irritant that can cause chest pains, coughing, and shortness of breath even in
    people who don’t suffer from asthma and other lung ailments.

    Waste of time and money.

    Use sealing Army ammo cans, and throw in a dessicant pouch. Ammo has kept like this for decades, with no issues.
