Re: Global Debt Time Bomb explodes soon

It amazes me how even minimal amounts of sense, financial knowledge, and discipline can catapult an American into the 1% elite of the world . QFT Becoming "wealthy" depending upon your definition of wealth can be as simple and making sure that you consistently spend less than earn. The key to "weal...

Re: Home Defense Choices

Pistol. Smaller, handier, and against your average burglar sufficient. Also, I'd hazard that if it comes to blows your average joe will be able to pistol-whip someone more effectively than they could use a longarm. If there's an Academy convenient-ish to him, he might try putting a few bucks a month...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I picked up one of the 6.5C Axis last year the OTD price was around $159 after hunting season. It is a cheap way to get in to the cartridge. I remember that. I so wish I'd had the extra $200 to throw at a 111 in .30-06. Or whatever ridiculously low price it was. I much preferred the older stock to ...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Got out to the range with my 3 (current) favorite rifles, preparatory to possible deer hunting. They're all shooting between excellently and acceptably, with the M1 being the worst. I don't mind, since I really don't have much time behind the trigger with it. I do need to adjust the .243 up about an...

I haven't been to Arrowhead in years (the combination of the clientele and lack of oversight of the firing line was scary), and that was just for function testing of a shotgun. Do they go out to 200?

My AR-10s have scopes and 45 degree offset BUIS. They are not really "BU", but more for close range shots. The 308 has legs, stretch them out. The MagPul BUIS were in the parts box.

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...

I have no doubt that they can turn PG&E into a "not for profit" very quickly. The real question is how will that keep the power flowing? Oh, it'll keep running fine.
