    I love it when a plan comes together, I was up and at my desk at 5 am this morning so I could make my 3:00 PM ranger reservation at Scottsdale Gun Club. I finally got to shoot my GI Guncrafter and boy it did not disappoint, with it's full size frame and 5" barrel I could shoot the stinger off...

    Since I'm done buying guns, I can start to post some collection picture threads. I'm still on hold with my Colt/Hawk 38 super Commander (I'm hoping to see that this month after 5 months of waiting) but couldn't resist watching golf and pulling out the supers. Wilson Combat Sentinel Compact...

    Today I received my new GI I ordered in the Spring. All I can say WOW. I would like to thank Derek and the crew at GI for such great work (including Turnbull, their engraver, etc.). Pictures attached are courtesy of Derek. I'll report again as soon as I fire it tomorrow.

    This is an amazing fully complete package for someone. If you have never owned, fired or held a "GI" they feel like they were milled out of one solid block of steel. Super solid, extremely tight tolerances and not a rattle to be found anywhere. I have found them to be the most accurate guns I...

    I traded my Nighthawk Kestrel to Addicted2gunz for his GI COO. As with my previous GI this thing is stupid accurate. 25 ft, first few magazines and I was chewing up this 8" target. I've shot a lot of guns in my days and these GI's are the most accurate I have ever shot. They also feel like...

    Just picked up a Guncrafter no name gov in 9 mm. I’ve owned several EBs, Colts, Kimber in 45 and a couple STIs and a highly modified SA in 9 mm. Let’s see how this stacks (no pun intended) to the existing and previous stable. Will update with photos and impressions.

    Just relaxing and working on my safe and pondering.... Is anyone a brand ho of the top semi custom builders? Wilson Combat, Les Baer, Nighthawk Custom, Ed Brown, Guncrafter Industries, and lets include in Dan Wesson. I feel its almost like Ford, Chevy, Mopar etc. I have been leaning more and...

    Oh hello, I’m Chelsea, the marketing director at Guncrafter Industries and the counterpart of @DPGI . Yes, it has taken me far too long to join addicts. -- I'm here now so let's do this -- Most days you'll find me surrounded by guns (the guys who've visited the shop can vouch for that)...

    Ok, somehow I ended up with a GI bobtail commander and Dan Wesson Guardian all in the same week :o.o: Today was the first range session for both. Both are 9mm, both are pre-owned and very lightly fired. The Dan Wesson came with 4 DW 9 round mags and in the GI I ran 9 round Ed Brown's I had...

    So many of you may remember my less than impressive CS experience with Ed Brown a while back and I'm not sure if that effects my feelings toward the gun (honestly I don't think so) but I would rate it well behind my Nighthawk and Wilson's in terms of looks and over "hand presence". To me it...

    It is fortunate that I never really paid much attention to the classifieds on this forum until now, because if I had, my two oldest would have never gone to college. I've always had an itch for a Guncrafter. First off, the clean look free of billboards is beautiful. Secondly, I had heard of the...

    Took a new Guncrafter Hellcat home today! This is my first Guncrafter. It’s a 9mm. I haven't shot it yet but I can say the fit and finish rivals any semi custom I’ve owned or seen including a former Supergrade. It’s tight all over yet the slide is very smooth on the rails. The barrel...

    I want to give a special thanks to Derek Parker and Guncrafter Industries. As some will remember I accidentally loaded some 10mm rounds in my 45acp mags. Shot three rounds before I figured it out Cases were blown. Gun looked allright to me and I shot another 50 flawless rounds of the correct...

    We released the newest version of the Hellcat yesterday, and I thought I'd post some pictures. Let me know if you have any questions, thoughts, comments, concerns... whatever.

    As I've said before on the forum I am limiting myself to purchasing two pistols in 2018: my 9mm range/training toy (getting a Sig Legion SAO), and I've been thinking the STI Costa VIP. The Legion should be here this week and I am going to be listing something out of my collection soon, along...
