Re: Why You should Avoid flood Waters

I read an article out NC flooding and how the pig farms will contaminate the waters for a bajillion miles due to dead pigs and fecal matter.

So even playing in the water without journeying is a nasty nasty endeavor.

Re: How Close Are We to Another Financial Crisis?

It's easier and safer to predict a collapse than say there won't be one.

I can also predict that there will be some natural disasters next year. I'd be a loon if I said there would be an absence of disasters.

It's like type I vs type II errors in research...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

Zero experience with their AK or Galil triggers, but have installed and shot several ACT and QMS triggers. They “feel” about the same to me, but I’m not a match-level shooter and am not that sensitive to trigger weight. I suck regardless of the pull! :lol: I do feel the difference between the ALG o...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

That's a great kit if you want an A2 from sight with Delta ring style handguard. Only thing I'd upgrade is the trigger. Everything else is good to go for all needs. I prefer POF 4.5# drop ins. Skip chrome lined hammer forged. Not worth the price for a regular civvy gun. That nitride barrel (not sur...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I've considered epoxying the blade to the tube. I'd go slow. I don't know what the Animal Treatment Foundation Executives are up to lately but it was any modification to the brace including changing the way it was mounted made it an SBR. Scary... Good call... I never thought of that as an issue but...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

And that brace is mediocre. They shift at times. I've run 2. I much prefer the new SBA3 braces on other kits from PSA. They use a standard buffer tube as well. Did you use the KAK blade along with the KAK dimpled buffer tube, or with some other brand of pistol tube? I have the KAK blade and tube on...

I'd forget the folding AR stock... If you're gonna do that, go KelTec SU16c or extar exp556. Me, I'd go pistol. A 10.5" or 11.5" PSA build will cost you under $500 and leave you about 26" in length if I remember. The new SBA3 braces are the best. Great package with a pistol. Perfect for truck/pack ...

Re: New smoker

Looks good! Plus doggo in the pic!

I know it's not a smoker, but my parents always rave about their propane infrared grill. I must say when I try their cooking, it doesn't taste like a propane grill cooked it... It's top notch.

Then again, I know nothing about grills.

Re: Free Natural Gas For Cooking Forever

I've never heard of this for residential use... Def cool if I had the money for a useful prep if I were worried about skyrocketing fuel prices.

Sadly, I'm not in that position. We'll be curious to see if tech will make it smaller and cheaper to be useful for the masses.

One minor suggestion: see if you can find a 1 to 2 year old truck in excellent condition to buy. That way someone else was paying the hefty first-year depreciation.
