Re: Wuuut! Tactical Crossbow

Interesting. A sustained ROF of six per minute compared to a well trained longbowman averaging 8-20 a minute. Although the time appears to mostly spent reloading. the two are not comparable, a well trained longbowman takes years of training, where as crossbow training takes a couple of minuets. a c...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Doesn't/didn't RIA make a 1911-alike in .22TCM? Yes, they make several models, both double stack and single stack. I keep hoping more people will offer models as well and more choices in ammo will be offered. plus they ship with a 9mm barrel (or at least mine did). but I haven't tried any .22 TCM t...

Re: Which is the better weapon Kukri or Katana?

Katana, wrapped in blue phone wire.... on second thought, the Kukri, cause it is very unlikely that you will get a quality katana, as most of them are built for looks not combat, its long think blade will damage easily. even with a cheap Kukri, you have a thick heavy blade, that is less prone to dam...

Re: 22LR in a rifle, ok for defense?

the only thing I have to add to moab's post, is that the only reason to pick a 22lr for self defense is if you have a condition that makes you too recoil sensitive to shoot anything else.

Re: pistol caliber carbine feedback

the Hi-Points are a real PIA to dissemble for cleaning. I typically clean mine with a blast of WD-40. I have no experience with the Mossberg 715T, but it looks like there are plenty of rails to hang stuff on. the Sub-2000 rifles can be found for under $300, especially the first generation.

Re: Home Defense Choices

of those choices the pistol is the best of the lot.

the 10/22 isn't a big round to be reliable at stopping a threat quickly, the other rifles have IMO too likely a chance of going through too many walls.

I guess that this is going to be a non-issue.
