Tucson Guns Newsletter Jan 2017

WELCOME TO 2017!
 

    Well, 2016 sure was a crazy year! We made it through the elections. With a Republican majority in the House & Senate, and with Trump as President, 2017 looks to be a good year for gun owners! Nationwide CCW Reciprocity is on the horizon as well as passage of the Hearing Protection Act. For the first time ever, the NRA is going on the offensive. Hopefully we can see some gunlaws on the books get repealed.

    All of us at Tucson Guns hope you and your families have a safe and prosperous New Year!

-Bob, Shane, James & Howard

 

 



GUN LAWS
 

H.R.3799 - Hearing Protection Act of 2015

http://americansuppressorassociation.com/hearing-protection-act/
 

Hearing Protection Act of 2015

This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to: (1) eliminate the $200 transfer tax on firearm silencers, and (2) treat any person who acquires or possesses a firearm silencer as meeting any registration or licensing requirements of the National Firearms Act with respect to such silencer. Any person who pays a tax on a silencer after October 22, 2015 may receive a refund of such tax.

The bill amends the federal criminal code to preempt state or local laws that tax or regulate firearm silencers.

This bill has a high probability of passing given the Republican majority in the House, Senate and with Trump as President. Don't wait until it passes to buy a suppressor though. The way things work in our government, it might still be a few years before it is voted on and approved.

GUN OF THE MONTH
 
Wilson Combat Tactical Elite 1911 .45acp
 
 

    If you are looking for a nice 1911 for the New Year, look no further than this lightly used Wilson Combat Tactical Elite. This 1911 comes with the factory blue Wilson Combat pistol case and one Wilson Combat 47D magazine.
  
     With all the combat-proven features of a typical CQB, the Tactical Elite provides the additional advantage of a fully-supported, hand-fit, heavy-flanged cone match-grade barrel. The extra weight of the heavier-than-standard barrel gives the shooter softer recoil and faster recovery time between shots. Possibly the easiest .45ACP pistol to shoot well in today's market, it is the highest-performance self defense pistol available. When nothing less than 100% functional reliability, fast handling, rapid shot-to-shot recovery and accuracy is demanded, you want to have a Wilson Combat® Tactical Elite On Your Side®.

TECH


 
M4, M4gery, AR, AR-15, Black Rifle, Modern Sporting Rifle, Assault Rifle, etc.... Whatever your preferred term is, we will refer to them as AR's for the duration of this article. We get tons of questions everyday concerning AR's so we decided to start a series of tech articles covering the majority of questions we have been asked over the years.  The number one most asked question we get is, "what is the difference between that inexpensive model and the way more expensive one? The simple answer is quality. The more complex answer will likely take a few newsletters to explain.
 
    At one time there was only what we call the ABC's of the AR world. Armalite, Bushmaster, & Colt. Now there are 100's of different AR manufacturers making every barrel length and configuration imaginable. With all these choices it can be a bit confusing as to which brand you should buy. Well, we are going to help you wade through the sea of AR's and determine which one is right for you.

    To start with, higher quality materials, more Quality Control Inspectors, higher standards, tighter tolerances all cost more money. Now just because the rifle costs more, doesn't necessarily mean it's better. We'll break down the main features that affect quality and what to look for when you are searching for your next AR.

    If you've been in our store asking about AR's you've probably heard us mention different "Tiers" of Manufacturers. We break down all AR manufacturers into 3 Tiers; Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 with Tier 1 being the high end and Tier 3 being the bottom of the barrel, quality wise. Tier 1 has the highest quality control, highest quality parts, and generally costs more than the other Tiers. Lets get into Tier 1 first.

    Tier 1 includes the following AR manufacturers-
  • Colt
  • Bravo Company (BCM)
  • Lewis Machine & Tool (LMT)
  • Noveske
  • Daniel Defense
  • LWRC
  • LaRue Tactical
  • FN
In our next article we will go into more detail about Tier 1 guns and what makes them so special.
