It was right near my work, but I choose to go to the range instead of the show. I belive a couple guys in the warehouse went, I will ask them what was there.

Good gunsmith?

Hi - I just bought my first AR-15 and a good sling, and, as a lefty, need to move the sling swivel from the left side to the right side.

It requires tapping out two roll pins. The Brownell site has a video (!) of roll pin tools (three of 'em) that I don't have.

I figured it'd be cheaper to take it to a gunsmith to have it done (and to check out the weapon before use).

I live in the Ballwin area, and work up near the airport.

Only two in the area I would trust,
One is Paul @ Redbrick, and the other is Otto @ OttoComp.

Let me know if you need contact information for them? The best way is to send me an email (it is in my profile).

I second the reccomendation for Otto Comp. He does great work and is good people. Plus, he lives in the Afton area, I believe. I used to work out in the Ballwin area. Nice little community.

I guess I am the new kid on the block! We live out 65 miles from St. Louis near a little town called Gerald M0. I will be Going picking up my 5th GLOCK in a couple days. It is a Glock 22 in the .40S&W caliber.

The wife has recently received her CCW permit and we both enjoy shooting our pistols . She also shoots a Glock 17 for practice and a Glock 26 for her carry gun, using Cor-Bon ammo at 1350fps.

Thanks - I've taken my Glock 19, my AR-15, and my S&W 340PD to Otto and he's made each one better. If I have a 1911 made, it'll be made by Otto.

Bought my HK from that Cabelas and my G23 at Nassau sporting goods over off the south outer road between cave springs and zuhmbel. Mikes is great too.

Well, I figure this is a good spot for my first post. I am living in South City currently, by Carondelet Park. Just purchased my first gun ever a couple of weeks ago. I went with a Glock 19 based on the reputation of Glock and the availability of the 9mm round. I have been doing my shooting at Top Gun in Imperial, MO and so far am really enjoying it. I would like to get my CCL but I need to give my wife some more time to warm up to the idea of me carrying. She has been to the range with me, but she is still a bit fearful of firearms.

Looks like you guys have a great community here, I am happy to be a part of it.

Sounds like your making good choices in weapons and ranges. Top Gun in my experience is a class act. Don't be too pushy but trying to keep her shooting in a safe and relaxed but fun atmosphere is paramount to converting her completely from the dark (fearful)side.

IMHO, Carrying is a personal choice make it for yourself.

Please consider IDPA - the International Defensive Pistol Association. I use my G19 for it. It's the next step after punching holes in paper - shooting defensive scenarios for time and accuracy while moving and reloading - real world defensive shooting.

Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club hosts IDPA and newbies are always welcome (I'm one, having shot only a couple of times). Go to www.arpc-idpa.com to check it out. We're having a fun shoot this Saturday 3/6/10, starting around noon. This is a great time to start.

I'll support a St. Louis GlockTalk day at one of the unmanned state ranges mentioned. Is it true you need an SUV to get to Reifsnider, because you have to ford a stream?? If so, I'll need a lift from a commuter lot!

Hello,
Longtime lurker, but recently registered member from St Louis here. I recently move to St Louis (The Hill) and was hoping someone could recommend a shop. I'm looking to purchase a Gen 4 G19.

Thanks!

Hey guys, new guy here from St. Louis...after my multi week wait to be able to post! FYI, Topgun tends to be a bit higher on some models since they work in a "free" hour at the range ($17), and a discount on your first accessory purchase. Dunns in Pevely has the best prices in general...also Smittys on 67 near Desoto. Small shop.....lots of guns! It's also nice to see a few of you from some other "fine handgun" forums!

Yep I am a big fan of Dunn's. Seems to be a lot less BS flying from behind the counter. The fellas there seem to enjoy fetching guns silently. Unless asked for comment.

Best, Rik
I was out at Top Gun a while back. It is a nice place. Hope they get their range up soon after the fire.
