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.

Re: What firearm that you used to own are you really wishing you still had?

Can we expand it to guns we wish we'd bought? Because there are a lot of milsurp guns I really wish I'd bought when they were cheap. I would add to that the Neos carbine kit (turns a Beretta Neos in to a rifle), saw one for sale, had the cash in my pocket, but wasn't sure how it would handle. shot ...

Re: Firearms Fails: The Wall of Shame

I had received a bunch of loose packed ammo in steel cans. I was unpacking them, and removing the brown paper that was in the cans for transport. And since I had a fire going already I was wandering out of my garage and putting the paper in the fire, and going back to unpack the next one.... How man...

Re: An AR-15 does not Legally have a Receiver & ATF Cannot Regulate It?!

I guess that this is going to be a non-issue. I don't believe that the courts would rule that the lack of a comma makes many modern firearms not have a receiver, or that all those already existing one have to get all the components that are listed engraved with the mandatory markings for a receiver...

Re: Revolver in 9mm: S&W or Chiappa?

the Chiappa, less muzzle flip, less felt recoil, and most importantly, it is different.

I have never had some one strike up a conversation about my S&W model 66, I have had a few come up about my Chiappa

Re: Buying emergency water from Amazon

cheap prep idea, find apps for you phone to allow you to access what you think you might need in an emergency, just make sure that they run on the device, and don't rely on the network for storage.

I would think a worn out buffer spring would give you issues with it not going fully into battery, not problems picking up the next round. as boskone mentioned, it could be ammo related, if it is a different ammo from before, or there maybe something impleading the amount to gas being delivered to t...
