Our LE Trade-ins have been coming in hot lately. Tons of Glocks. Right now we have some pretty cool unissued Glock 17s.
The first option is an unissued law enforcement trade-in Glock 17 gen 5 w/ Glock night sights and 3 magazines. These are a great deal and we don’t see unissued gen 5 guns too often. The upgraded night sights are also something you don’t see too often!
The second option unissued law enforcement trade-in Glock 17 gen 5 w/ Glock Night Sights and 3 Magazines.
It’s Monday. Nobody likes Monday. Let’s change that. Here is a new thing I want to do, drill of the week. Give it to you Monday, you got all week to look at it and learn it. Run it on the weekend. Brag about it and tell your friends they suck and need to train more. Sounds like fun to me.
This week: Failure to Stop Drill, or Mozambique
The Failure to Stop Drill, or Mozambique, is usually done with a pistol when us at AIM run it but it can be done with a rifle or shotgun if you really wanted to do it.
Take a USPSA Target or body silhouette that has a dedicated chest and head area. Set the target up at 7 yards with your pistol and I Like to do 25 with a rifle.
Start from holster either appendix or OWB, if range rules say none of that good stuff, do low ready.
On the beep, two shots to the chest area and one to the head.
A four-second par time is a good time to aim for when shooting the Mozambique Drill at seven yards. Better shooters should be able to perform this drill in 2.5 seconds or less, from the holster. Real Spicy guys can shoot it in around 1.5 seconds.
If you gave me a bunch of cash and said buy 3 guns from the showroom right now. This is what I would get. Unless we somehow happen to get something super cool in before I hit publish, this is what I would get.
FN SCAR 20S 20IN .308 RIFLE
I don’t own a .308, I don’t own a scar. I want a scar, makes sense to me. Throw it in the cart.
2. ZASTAVA USA ZPAP92
I don’t own an AK, getting this solves that. I’m not a die-hard AK guy so I don’t care that it’s not one of the cool or rare ones, but this looks like fun and why not own one?
3. SMITH & WESSON M&P9 SHIELD PLUS
Best striker-fired gun on the market when you add in the apex trigger. I already have a 2.0, and now I want one that’s smaller to carry. That is where this comes in.
They have released a lower for the PCC crowd. The Hybrid is a new 9mm PCC option. The feature that jumps out instantly and sets this pistol caliber carbine apart from the others is the polymer lower receiver. Particularly, the pistol grip which allows housing a spare Glock magazine.
The magazine inside the pistol grip is released with a pistol-style thumb button release. Now it feels different at first but getting fast reloads with this setup is very easy to do after a few dry fire runs.
The polymer lower receiver of Hybrid has an aluminum insert in the buffer tube attachment area to keep things strong. This lower comes with ambidextrous safety, magazine release, and bolt catch.
Being a local AIM customer has some perks. You can see the showroom and pick up the guns on the wall. Get a feel for what optic you may like or what safety selector feels best. The learning center wall is a great place to find out what you want on your next build.
You also get to see whatever guns we have in inventory in person, without worrying if it’s as cool in real life as in pictures. You can see and feel the products you ordered before you pay, just in case you end up not liking it and want to make a switch. You can avoid doing a return on something you were unsure of and get what you love right from the start.
So many perks, so little time. One of the best perks: the police trade-ins that are exclusive to local customers. Sometimes it’s a smaller number of trade-in Glocks or even FNs. Sometimes you get short-barrel shotguns that require a stamp from the lovely folks at the ATF. Sometimes you get used riot gear and soft body armor. It all depends on what comes in.
Currently, we have these sweet LE Trade-In Beretta 1301 tactical shotguns that are for local customers only.
If you are local come check them out! We have lots of cool things for you to pick up and play with!
Getting into red dots on pistols can be overwhelming at first. You want to get the best dot, but then you have to worry about optic cuts and making sure you have selected the right cut to run the red dot.
Different footprints go with different optics and some cuts cannot use adapter plates or adapter plates are not available, there are going to be tons of scenarios if you want to dig deep.
This is an excellent guide to explaining not only all the mounting points but also patterns, screw sizes, and models that fit what cut. Tons of really good information.
The Stribog has exploded onto the scene for being a really fun gun at a really good price. The main complaint people had was that you cannot change the trigger or the grip without changing the lower out for one that takes Glock mags or scorpion mags. I personally have not had an issue with factory Stribog mags and the factory setup but I get it, people want to change stuff up to make it more personal to them.
Well, problem solved thanks to Matador Arms. You get this complete upper that is blowback, which lets you shoot without a buffer. Perfect for a little truck gun or backpack gun.
Matador Arms Montgo-9 upper receiver assembly comes with a 1/2×28″ threaded muzzle, non-reciprocating and reversible charging handle, a full-length pic rail on top, and a 3.5” pic rail section at the bottom of the handguard. The slots on the sides of the handguard are not M-LOK slots which is really the only thing that I kinda am bummed about but it isn’t a make or break.
This last weekend we went to Sugar Creek Range to do a really cool night vision demo event.
Everyone who came out had the opportunity to shoot suppressed guns utilizing helmet-mounted night vision with a laser and/or a night vision clip-on unit mounted on a rifle as well as given the opportunity to compete against others by time in a steel target competition.
We brought a couple of our aim ported barrels and window cut slides for people to try out, we also brought some of the offerings from Foxtrot Mike to let people see how awesome those are!
It was a really cool event especially if you have never shot with night vision, when they do another one, definitely go check it out!
These are some of the most asked-for items we have, on social media anytime we post about a Glock barrel or slide, usually, the first question we get is ” What about for the 43?” Well, we have a couple options for you guys!
The Rose Gold barrel for your 43 just looks great, solid choice to break up all the black on the handgun. We will have some more color options at some point but we figured let’s give you guys the cooler stuff first.
