Re: Wuhan Coronavirus Thread

It sounds like the Wuhan corona virus is fairly flu-like, some people are dying but not a massive number (reported yet). What seems to make it unusual is that it is (I think this is the term) asymptomatically contagious, where you can catch it from someone who shows no symptoms. From what I've heard...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

Yes! Another chance to share my ignorant and probably undesired opinions! As I mentioned on page one, my vote is for the AR-10 platform. My first “real” rifle was a rat-grade M-1A that I slowly turned into a match rifle (heavy barrel; National Match Guide rod, spring bolt and sights; glass-bedded Mc...

Re: College kids

Would it be possible to give them a cheap HAM radio and maybe a bit of practice, maybe even a HAM license?

I've tried to keep my kids nerdy, I might be able to talk them into something like this.

I've noticed the lack of progress in camouflage in the last four to five years. The only source of new or interesting camouflage seems to be China. I'm a big fan of ATACS but I like this new stuff.

Re: The definitive ZS MRDS thread

An update... I got my slide back from JagerWerks. It was shipped back 30 days after they got it and they messaged me with tracking info after they shipped. I had them enhance the rear serrations. This is kind of subtle but makes it a nudge grippier. I also had them add radius serrations -this certai...

Re: Ultimate ZS Battle/Scout Belt Thread

Anyone care to compare and contrast the SafariLand UBL Mid-ride attachment and the Bladetech DOH? I think the chief difference is that the DOH angles the pistol out. Is this a great, unimportant, bad or terrible idea for a battlebelt? If it matters it is for a Glock (No safety).
