Re: UTG Tactical Vest ACU Velcro Magazine Pouches

My first guess: Nowhere. No one makes pouches like that. It's a terrible system. Things like mag pouches are bulky and, once filled, heavy. They swing and catch on things. Velcro will tear right off without clips, straps, or other more reliable mounting methods to back them up. There's a reason UTG ...

Re: Which Mosin?

I love my 91/30. Awesome gun. You literally can't find a more effective, powerful rifle for the money. I'm intending to pick up another as a project gun. Strip off the stock. Cut barrel down to 16". Replace rear sight with rail and scout-scope. Fabricate a folding skeleton stock and simplified foren...

Re: When people find out you're a prepper

When it comes to prepping, I figure I'm better off not letting ANYONE know about it. Heaven forbid something REALLY bad happens, suddenly someone remembers and word spreads. The only people that know are friends and family we trust and are generally of the same mindset anyway. It took awhile to get ...

Re: Thinking about designing a revolver

Hey guys, I'm designing a truck from the ground, up. I want it to look like one I saw on TV, but with a couple awesome changes. The prototype will run on expensive, hard to find racing fuel for no real reason other than coolness factor. I don't really know much about internal combustion engines, sus...

Re: BAYONETS Pt2: THE REVENGE.

Does not look like the ring on the crossguard actually fits around the barrel . Tough to see, but it's on there. There's literally JUST enough room between the sight base and the end of the barrel for the ring to fit. I love the ingenuity of this design. Of course for anything practical I'd rather ...

Great gun. Simple to operate, and effective at what it's meant to do. If I was forced out into a SHTF scenario with just my 336, I would NOT feel underarmed. Then again, I'm in a relatively rural area. If I lived in a higher population density, I'd be damn sure to have a pistol caliber carbine lever...

Re: Making a spring bow.

The only problem I foresee is length requirements. In getting rid of the bow's width, you make up for it in length. And a large benefit of the bow shape is it's ability to provide power to the bolt from the point of release until pretty much right before it leaves the rail. With coil springs, like g...
