Rebuilt or not, you're still buying a used G.I. spec 1911 for >$600.

That's silly [to me] unless you absolutely must have a genuine Mil-Spec, Mil-Issued sidearm for your collection.

Meanwhile I can get a Rock Island 2011 Match pistol for $750.

If it looks like an STI clone, that's because Armscor contract manufacturers the stock frames for STI.





or their .45 Match for about the same price

I'm with Heist. The CMP sales of these are marketed specifically for collectors. Anyone who isn't one would be much better served buying new. I can get a 1911 with special request features for the price of a rack grade from CMP. No contest.

New silencer made from an exotic ITAR controlled alloy used on the nozzles of NASA's rocket. Claims to be the strongest alloy ever used in a silencer while having equivalent lightness of Titanium.



Crazy how silent this thing is. Go to 15:13

I live in DC now and want to be able to carry concealed. I go to VA most days of the week. Apparently I'd have to register the gun anyway so I might as well be able to carry it..

I have my VA permit - I know, no reciprocity, but they ask on the form. I also have active VA DCJS and recently took 07E pistol course.

Questions.

Anyone here get their concealed pistol permit in DC? Did you run into any problems?

If you had formal training outside of DC, was it allowed to be used as an exemption in the application process?

Any suggestions?

DC is a may issue District. DC's government did not allow civilian CCW at all until a judge declared it illegal not very long ago.



Now that an average DC resident may obtain a CCW, the process is made intentionally difficult, to the point of disenfranchisement.



The last time I checked, formal training outside of DC is not acknowledged. You'll have to re-qualify in DC.



Reciprocity, as you already stated, not recognized.

Imaging the difficulty trying to simply register and bring your firearm into DC legally.

You must send your firearm to a DC FFL.

The problem, there was only ONE FFL in DC. He worked out of a small office in DC MPD HQ ... a few days a week ... part time.

Still a better situation than Maryland...

You need to be a special citizen, of importance, to deserve the ability to carry tools to ensure your liberty.

If you're one of the many regular serfs, no joy.
