Lowers are lowers and the more expensive they are the more they cost! We have found no real difference between them. I have seen crazy accurate match guns built on polymer lowers. What really matters considering receivers in the trigger system you use and quality of parts you put on them.

For our standard training guns, we do not want a really light trigger as my fat *** is running around, dropping down, kneeling and lord forbid squatting with the guns. A light trigger is dangerous so I just do a trigger job on a standard two stage trigger. For my DDV4 I did a Timney drop in.

We sell spikes and the surplus gun and ammo receivers more than any other kind and never had any come back for any reason. If you are buying second hand, stay away from AR57 receivers as some of the first ones they made during the insanity had miss aligned holes for the push pins. We bought a bunch of them and a lot of pissed customers but AR57 stepped up and replaced all of them and even paid for shipping. The customers could just send them straight in and get a replacement. I still have a few with misaligned holes and may sell them off as project guns stupid cheap.

She is one of the coolest people I have ever met but very point blank. She doesn't powder coat anything and always speaks her mind. She is not one of those girls who acts nice to your face then talks behind your back. If she doesn't like you, she will look you in the eye and call you an *******! She is 10 years younger than me, makes more money, let's me keep an ungodly amount of gun stuff, doesn't complain to much and hates to shop! When I talk about her complaining, it is usually my fault.

We are not contractually "with" any company but we know dozens of instructors across the country. Some of our favorites is Thunder Ranch, Tactical Defense institute here in Ohio, Indian creek firearms training, Mad Duck here in Ohio, Gunsite ( I actually got to meet and shoot with Lt Jeff Cooper) and we got to train on the base in Knoxville Tennessee.

It is cool traveling around training but you can learn a lot from instructors close to home and save a ton of cash you can use to train more. A very long time ago, I painted a house for my first instructor to pay for it. Don't be afraid to ask for bulk deals for you and your friends as the more people that take the class, the more word of mouth advertising they get. Do some research on where they got their training and what they know.

Yep. I have a buddy in Vermont who brings trainers to his property for classes. He and his nearby friends split the cost.
