Re: Glock 17c front sight hole not centered

I always drift the rear sights on my Glocks. I naturally shoot them a little left, but not as left as this one. I measured it again today to make sure I was not off and my measurements still stand. I even bought a new caliber just to be sure. I got a short response from Glock saying they forwarded m...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

Sorry if this was covered, but I just watched a video of the rap star turned warlord handing out an ar15 from the trunk of his car. The kid he gave it to obviously had no idea how to operate it. The video was on a youtube channel run by Tim Pool. Apologies for not having a link, but it is easy to fi...

Glock 17c front sight hole not centered

So I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of this problem. Everyone who knows me, knows I am not a Glock fan. I use them because my job only recently authorized different manufactures other than Glock. Basically someone else version of a Glock so I just stuck with what I have. So today I was chang...

Don't actually connect the pipes to the ac or cooler ducts. Just a fake piece with the appearance of a real one to help keep the moisture out.

Re: Help on vest vs belt

I always find this argument or discussion interesting. When I was in the army everything was around the hips with the aid of suspenders; alice gear. When I first started as a police officer I had to put it all on my hips. This caused back problems over time and was no fun at all. Granted a war belt ...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

I like the idea of hidden preps. I have a peg board set up in the garage and use the space behind it to stash a few things. I have a few other places, but it would still hurt to loose my primary preps. In the end though it's just stuff. This isn't the apocalypse so I can get more stuff later. My pri...

Re: Seattle: The Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone

The last thing I heard about this was someone acting in a role similar to a warlord. Getting protection money, goods, or services from people in exchange for protection from both his crew, and others. So I am going to go with that as a premise. I think bugging in in that situation could be dangerous...

Re: Glock 43, the gun I wanted to hate

Sorry I haven't had a chance to respond. I watched a video by the military arms channel awhile back. They did a test of snub nosed 357/38 versus a small 9mm. Based on the barrel length and type of ammunition the 9mm had the best performance. I know there are pros and cons for revolver carry, but may...

Re: Maybe prepare for another ammo shortage?

As was said by someone before I always just assume I will wake up and not be able to buy ammo at a normal price. So I have been stockpiling for awhile. I keep it simple, every time I shoot 500 rounds of a caliber I buy a 1000. It took a bit of time but eventually I got to where I wanted to be. I onl...

Glock 43, the gun I wanted to hate

For years I have either carried a Glock 27, or 26 as a backup ankle gun. For you revolver lovers I started out with a Smith model 640, 357 magnum. After years of feeling like I had a boat anchor on my ankle I switched to a Glock 43. I am not a Glock fan, but departmental restrictions prevent me from...

Re: Looking for something higher quality but similar to the Condor Rapid Assualt

Have you looked at HSGI gear? I have their small chest rig, it worked for what it was intended for. Has the condor not held up for your intended purpose? I think Blackhawk, Hazard 4, and Haley Strategic also make a carrier very close to the one you posted a link too.
