    "A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship..." - Alexander Tytler (Often mis-attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville)

    I need promo material. I got tired of working for stupid people and decided to start up my own business. I just completed the NIC Industries certification class and this was one of my guns that I coated. Kimber coatings don't seem to be very durable. While the stock finish didn't have any holster wear, the safety and magazine release had considerable wear, i.e., bare metal showing. I did a lot of my own research and I believe that Cerakote is the industry leader and after seeing their operation first hand, I believe they will remain the industry leader. There are a lot of firearms companies using their coating on production weapons.

    Oh I see, well you did a excellent job on your 1911. It should be a good promo in the future. Also good luck with your buisness.

    What can you tell me about the certification class? The website doesn't say squat about it.

    I have some information you might want to take. If you have a standard FFL even with an SOT I would highly recommend upgrading to a type 7 with a type 2 SOT so ATF doesn’t shot you down for manufacturing without a license. They tried to do it to me a couple months ago, just ask Mat at NIC regarding Selph Arms LLC in TX.
