Have any of you got “token expired” when hitting pay to enter a webinar? It doesn’t look like the payment went through but now I go in and it says that seat is reserved and I am already in the webinar But can’t click on the seat.

No I didn’t get a confirmation email. However I can’t click on that seat and if I click on another seat it says I am already in the webinar. I emailed them.

What’s with all the Canicks on DLD? I’ve never heard of them and I’m curious if they’re any good.

Ive shot a few and they shot really well.

My buddy has a tp9sfx and its a really smooth shooting gun, no complaints at all with it.

Turkish made Nutnfancy raved about em. Seem to be decent enough. I'd shoot one out of curiosity tbh. They used to be cheap but I thought the price went up some, maybe it's just that their product line has expanded a ton since their first intro pistol.

I have an elite combat exec and it easily compares to the higher end brand name guns out there.

Odds-wise you're better off going and playing roulette and using any winnings for a gun than you are playing DLD.

Since it seems there are a lot of new people in here just starting on that site, do the math on how much they upcharge. The total ticket value is usually 10-20% over the normal selling price for the gun, meaning your odds suck. I did 5-6 raffles then realized I'm an idiot, now I only buy a ticket on the rare occasion there's an absolutely amazing gun that's valued fairly (like the STI staccato was).

The odds definitely seem to be getting worse as time goes on. More seats = worse odds

There are a few new "up and coming" places that are making less as well. If anyone is on FB I can send you a link to a new group im in, but its definitely not the nicer guns like DLD is getting, and the "production" behind them isnt there either.

Yeah,there are s lot of gun webinars out there now. And the few others I looked at, looked like a preschooler built the website. So on the rare occasion I buy into a seat, I'll stick with dld.

Yeah, the newest one im in is literally people posting what number seat they want, paypal the guy, then he videos a spinning wheel on his laptop. Better odds but the production is not even close if that matters to you.

The gun selection is very "meh" too, basic glocks and things like that.

Noob question: so I applied for my IL CC. Did the electronic fingerprints and got the card for the Florida CC application. I applied for the Florida CC on their website. Paid the $55. Now I am suppose to send the fingerprint card and an additional $42??

I believe so. I still need to send in my FL and Utah certificates myself.

I have to dig into the fees, and need to get my CCW Safe membership. Still need to get the membership in to join ASC as well...

Fucking pricey lately. :bowrofl:
