SHOT Show impressions from Mark and Tony

cmctriggersSomeone decided they wanted to be the first to own our @cmctriggers SILVER GLOCK BARREL and take it home from @shotshow. Funny thing is, there’s only 1 and it wasn’t for sale! Help us spread the word! We’d love to see it back in our mailbox at the Shop. Be decent and return it, we know it was an ‘accident’. You can’t even show it off to your friends 🤷🏻‍♀️#runcmc #runcmctriggers #cmcbarrels #stickyfingers #shotshow #glockbarrels #pleasesenditback
