Best gun TV show?

Basically I have limited time to watch so which should I DVR?

Top shot is okay but I get annoyed at the reality part.

Other than that I barely keep up with whats out there.

Sore fingers, sad accuracy, and finish that flaked off after using break free.

The only advantage I see is if you need a top rail for optics.

Federal handgun = 21

Your state = 18

because FFL have to abide by federal regs you have to buy privately ftf.

CCW is regulated by states and usually is 21.

I own one.

My biggest gripe is they are heavy and the front sight is too big(seems to cover the whole target at 25yds.

Otherwise they are accurate and the top rail is nice for mounting optics.

My slide cracked twice but they have a good warranty.

I did the safety mods with a dremel and without the mods would never shoot the thing(don't really shoot it anymore anyway).
