But i will say that the Ammo Brick is actually really sturdy and i don't see the handle breaking or bending under normal use.
it is likely to come off on one side when sitting around (yes bending the handles closed can fix this). I say this as an owner of a couple of water bricks.

Re: Mossberg 500 based home defense setup

take a look at the Knoxx SpecOps Stock, the adjustable stock lets you change the length of pull quick and easy. it reduces the felt recoil, not as mush as they clamed, but my shoulder feels a difference. You will still have the issue with reaching the safety. would you consider making the mossy dedi...

Re: Mossberg 500 based home defense setup

why the folding stock? sure it takes up a little less space to store it, but adds another action before your gun is ready for use. also keep in mind that a pistol grip on a Mossberg means you have to move your hand to disengage the safety. I would also recommend adding a light to it, so you can posi...

Re: Exterior Door Security

just keep in mind that anyone determined to get in will, but most thief's are not determined to steal from YOU, they want an easy score. security theater works well to deter them.

Re: Best cheap 9mm for PAW trade? Star BM 9mm for $200?

the star BM is a nice little pistol, that has about the same grip angle as a 1911. I have had one for several years now, and just picked up another for under $200 OTD (including shipping & transfer fees). they are surplus, so the condition and finish wear is inconsistent. my second one the safety is...

Re: The Day of EDC Victory

we have a "no weapons policy" but no guidance on what is a tool or a weapon. I have commented to my director that there is nothing on his desk that couldn't be used to kill him, so it must all be weapons.

it is fun to have a reputation of being a smart ass.

I'll toss that out later on, still fighting the good fight and trying to convince her to stick with her Ruger SR22 and since she is spending the weekend here it could be a long fight.
Skip the fight and just get her a HK P30 40S&W V3 for $500 from CDNN sports.

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

I'm no lawyer. And may be way off base. But it seems there is also case law at play here
I am not a lawyer either, but I think that to be case law, it has to be adjudicated. a settlement doesn't establish case law.

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

it is in the short term. the long term depends on who shoots what, and the spin of it all.

I can see it also leading to the outlawing of home made firearms. there are already some pushing for it.
