After being smacked down by the US Supreme Court, New York, the Empire State, has decided to add additional hurdles to the process of begging the state for your God-given right to self-defense.

Why would I want to Duracoat a new gun? Is your Factory Finish good enough? We will address that very issue. During our Brownells Bullet Point we ask, do you and your family have all of your “stuff” together?

Thanks for being a part of SOTG! We hope you find value in the message we share. If you’ve got any questions, here are some options to contact us:
