Re: The Coming Civil War

Not America but there was that German politician that took a bullet to the back in his garden a few months ago.

Re: The Coming Civil War

I think the most important take away from my post above is this. It is unlikely there will be large scale open warfare. Expect something more similar to the troubles in Ireland. Small scale violence focused on resource denial or political impact. And small scale responses focused on demoralising or ...

Re: The Coming Civil War

I haven't read every reply here but here is my take on how this is likely to go down. The major political divide in the country is urban vs rural. This correlates well with many other things but the geography is the primary concern for me. Cities are very dependent on the rural areas for food and el...

Bootleg Adjustable bolt carrier review

Just got my first rifle suppressor for my AR! only about 7months of waiting for the tax stamp. After firing the first round in my backyard I very quickly noticed a lot of gas shooting right up under my glasses into my eye. I had a feeling that this would be a problem since everyone says its a proble...

Re: 5.56 AK'ish options

That thing looks exactly like what I'm looking for! Thanks Rick! Playing with a new platform should be very entertaining. MSRP of $1500ish sounds promising as well.

5.56 AK'ish options

Hi all, Considering options for a new long gun. I'd like something that uses Ar15 magazines and has a folding stock. I was looking at building myself an AK but after adding up all of the parts and tools I'm into nice factory gun territory. Right now it looks like my options are the Faxon ARAK 21 and...

Re: Pistol Carry method with large BOB on your back

Honestly I'm in a catch 22 with the whole thing. You have hiking gear companies like Osprey and Ribz that are making gear for hikers. They were never intended to make something for a CCW, but someone in the gun community said "hey you can carry a handgun in that." Meanwhile you have Tactical Gear g...

Re: Pistol Carry method with large BOB on your back

Mikeyboy: Everything you said about the HPG chest pack is wrong. They incorporate into pack-wearing far better than the Ribz and actually support the weight of a legit pistol. Your list of cons is far too long for someone who has no experience with one. fanny pack<Safepacker<HPG chest pack. Word Up...

Re: Pistol Carry method with large BOB on your back

I'm a big fan of the front packs to keep essentials. I try to avoid having much if anything in my pockets when hiking. I currently use the Ribz pack but I do plan on trying the HPG one eventually.

Re: Building an SPR looking for input

I lost my post thanking you individually so I'll sum up saying thank you those are some good parts that I might end up with.

This leaves my priority as optics. Mostly limited by what the wife will left me spend. Any thoughts on the SWFA scope I linked to?

Building an SPR looking for input

Now that I have a 400m range to shoot at I'm starting to shift my focus to precision over blasting. Needless to say my 1/9 twist 16in ar15 with no throat left and a red dot just doesn't cut it. IMO 18inches is the sweet spot in terms of velocity vs weight so I'm looking at an SPR inspired build. The...

Re: Need opinions

To clarify you are asking where in each pack you would pack a general set of gear? I generally go for putting stuff into stuff sacks for organization. Really you play around with this sorta thing until it works for you. The rule of thumb is high center of gravity for trails and low for things that r...

I love having an old ugly beat up franken 1911 with whatever grips came up first on midway when I sorted cheapest to most expensive. They are black, I think.

Re: Out of ammo! Restocking techniques?

Reloading is the only way I can keep my guns fed. Cast bullets are still easy enough to get for the pistols, primers are my bottle neck right now.

My wife just got an Osprey pack and loves it. Come to think of it, so did my dad. I'm sure ill end up with one of them soon enough. Wait, was I supposed to talk you out of this?

Re: Signs of a return to "normal" prices?

my LGS has every gun you could ever want for about 20% more than a year ago. Only had 5.56 ammo though. Not sure on prices of ammo since they had so little.

I found one of the jerks that goes to walmart and buys all the .22 every morning. I get my .22 from him now for what he pays. :awesome:

Same here. I keep the kling wrap for securing splints since I run into sprains and other similar extremity injuries more often than serious bleeding injuries.
