Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Could we get a tl;dr? I dunno if the video's down, something on my network's blocking it, or what but when I try to watch that link it just throws some error about the video not being available and to try back later. It's a 2 minute long video about how firearms work. Literally everything he says i...

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

another consideration is which do you prefer to shoot. if you spend all your pre-SHTF time shooting rifles, then the air gun is the way to go.
IMHO the crossbow is a better compromise that either the bow or air gun. same rifle like skills to employ, with the possibility of ammo recovery.

Just bought another 870. Doesn't come with a barrel, but came with a knoxx folder. I tell myself I'm going to tune it and sell it again ... But the more I think about a short barrel with some sexy wood ... The less likely I am to sell it. If all goes well tomorrow, I should be coming home with a ne...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

One can hope! That's the main reason I keep a .40 cal around, for those times that cheap police and alphabet agency surplus ammo hits the market. And agencies have been stocking up in record numbers in recent years, it would be nice for shooters if police get defunded and have to sell some of that ...

Re: A present for my wife ...

I second the recommendation of a Henry .22 leaver gun. I believe that the .22s are all loaded through the end of the tube. other calibers have side loading gates, but you cant go wrong with Henry.

Some guy on Reddit converted a Cricket into a little single-shot survival pistol . Pretty neat concept, I think. In an ideal world, I might try to find a way to make a less-bulky brace. This is almost screaming for a little pic strip on the back to attach to, instead of a fixed faux-AR buffer tube....

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I wish manufacturers would stop making "state compliant" versions of popular firearms.

I think that the legislators that write those restrictive laws wish that ...
