    Yup, I usually bore sight from the kitchen table on a knot hole on the back fence before going to the range. Sure saves ammo.

    I'm NRA life too but went with US Law Shield. As a CCW permitee I felt it was better to be prepared and know you have an attorney on call if needed then try to find one after the fact.

    All said above is right. It usually takes 10 to 12 days for them to get Denver, Start reading about the quirks of casting with brass and patina while you wait it will be worth it.

    I'd take it to a custom western hat maker and see what they think. I suspect there are a couple somewhere around your neck of the woods, or Nashville. They can probably re block and clean it.
