Win a Para PXT LDA Limited Single Stack Pistol

Para PXT LDA Limited Single Stack Pistol

I just got this picture and email from Kerby Smith of Para USA regarding the pistol that Para USA is donating to the Project Valour-IT fund raising raffle to be held at the Gun Blogger Rendezvous.
I selected a sharp looking Para LDA that should bring a good price in the auction raffle (ed) and one that is also on the California DOJ list so that if a California Gun Blogger bids on it there should be no problem transferring it to a California dealer.

I have attached a picture of the Para PXT LDA Limited Single Stack Pistol.

Best regards,

Para USA, Inc.
I showed the picture to KeeWee and she had only one thing to say: "I want one!"

Para USA Donates a Handgun to the Rendzvous

I've been hyper-ventilating for a week or so hoping all the pieces would finally fall into place so I could make this announcement. I'm pleased to announce that Para USA will be donating a new handgun to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous to help with our fund raising efforts to benefit Project Valour-IT. I don't have the details as to exactly what model it will be, but I'd sure settle for any in the above picture, wouldn't you?

The Para USA pistol will be shipped to Hi Cap Gun Works in Reno in time for the Rendezvous, so we will all be able to see it first hand. If it is won by a Nevada resident, then it can be transferred to him right there and he can take it home, provided all the usual other reg's are followed. If it's won by a non-Nevada resident, then Hi Cap Gun Works will take care of shipping it to the winner's own home town FFL holder.

With the addition of the Para USA pistol to the Hi-Point 9mm. Pistol and the $2,000 four day training session at Front Sight Institute, we will have three very nice items in the fund raising raffle. For you folks attending the Rendezvous, ask your friends if they'd like you to buy some tickets in their name, too. The more tickets we sell, the more money we can raise for those voice actuated laptop computers for our injured servicemen.

The plan is for a minimum of 100 $10 raffle tickets to be sold at the Saturday night dinner. That means we will be raising a minimum of $1000 for Project Valour-IT! If more tickets beyond the initial 100 sell ,that's even more money for Valour-IT.

The question has been asked if Andy of Hi Cap Gun Works will be bringing any of his custom rifles to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous and out to the range on Saturday so we can try them out. I relayed the question to Andy, and here's his reply:

Yes we will bring out several models of customized ak47's and a couple of Ar-15's. Also Hi-CAP is working on a brand new stock design that will fit all ak47 mak90 models. I don't know if the prototype will be finished by October but if it is I'd like to bring it along. There is nothing else like it anywhere.


There's still time to get your registration and room reservations in, but DO IT NOW!!!

We need to know how many will be there so we have enough shirts.......................

Front Sight Training Certificate Arrived

Just as promised, the Front sight Firearms Training Institute certificate arrived today by priority mail. The certificate can be used for any one of several different training courses. The choices are

Two Day Defensive Handgun
Two Day Tactical Shotgun
Two Day Practical Rifle
Four Day Defensive Handgun
Four Day Tactical Shotgun
Four Day Practical Rifle

Quoting from the certificate " Two people may use one certificate when enrolling in the same two day course together."

If I'm reading that correctly, instead of taking one four day course, you can bring a friend and both of you can take the same two day course.

See you in Reno in a couple of weeks!

Front Sight Donates $2000 Training to GBR-III

I just got an e-Mail from Dr. Ignatius Piazza, founder and head guy from Front sight Firearms Training Institute, and he had two pieces of good news for me. First, he will be donating a $2,000 dollar four day training course to the Gun Blogger Rendezvous for inclusion in our Project Valour-IT fund raising efforts. That will go on the list along with a new Hi-Point 9mm. pistol, a Dillon range bag (I think) and possibly some other stuff too!

The second piece of good news is that Dr. Piazza is going to try to attend at least part of the Gun Blogger Rendezvous so we can meet him in person and he can answer any questions we may have about his training programs. He sounds like an interesting guy and I'd like to meet him in person some day.

Gettin' Your Guns To GBR-III

I just got off the phone after talking with Andy of Hi Capacity Gun Works in Reno. They are a FFL located not far from the Circus Circus Hotel where Gun Blogger Rendezvous is being held. They are primarily a gunsmith shop and they specialize in trick Kalishnikov stuff, although they can do just about anything a shooter might need.

Andy says he'd be glad to help out with shipping guns to and from the GBR. You can ship to his business location, then pick them up there when you get to Reno. He can also help in shipping your firearms back home, too. Give him a call at 1-866-768-5004 and he can fill you in on the details.

Andy, and some of the other folks from HCGW are planning to attend the Rondy, too, and will probably be bringing along some cool show-n-tell stuff for us to see as well.

Thanks, Andy, I'm looking forward to meeting up in person!

Crimson Trace to Sponsor GBR-III

I just got an email from Patrick Harlan of Crimson Trace, the folks that build those cool laser grips, and they are going to be helping sponsor the Gun Blogger Rendezvous. It sounds like we may be getting some very cool shirts and DVDs, so there's even one more reason to attend.

Time is running short, so be sure to get your registration and your room reservations in ASAP! We need to know who's going to be there so we can plan accordingly.................
