Re: Firearms Chat Part 2: Bullpups cause all the rage!

I understand why people don't like the pistol can idea. I agree on all points. And just like the 300 BO, if you reload, all of the big objections are moot. My favorite load for the 9mm is 3.2 grains of Universal and a 147 grain bullet. About 850 fps and the fast burning powder burns in the barrel, w...

I believe that idea is called radiation hormesis. I understand the concept, but the evidence is not conclusive at this point. I don't recommend it.

Re: FUKUSHIMA. Anyone concerned about it? Radiation preps?

No attack here. Good discussion, lets keep it that way. According to Ken Breussler, Senior Scientist at Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution, there is no effort by the U.S. Government to monitor radiation off our coast. He has called for such an effort, but was told that it was unlikely. Not you lu...

Phoenix David, great post. That is something that is so "common sense" to me that I didn't even think to include it. Editing original post now.

Re: Hands problems during winter

Right on. Especially if the cracking is not at the finger tips and is on the knuckles, it sounds like classic dryness. It is amazing how just "dry skin" increases sensitivity to cold.

What soap are you using? I was a mechanic in Phoenix, Arizona and this would happen to me every winter also. The "winters" in Phoenix normally stay above 32 F at all times.

Re: Threaded Glock Barrels

I contacted SilencerCo directly. They said they all have LW barrels on their glocks and they work great with the Osprey so I guess that’s that… That is that. If the manufacturer says to use that barrel, then absolutely do that. Ignore my anecdotal experience. I used a Blackside can with that combin...

Re: Threaded Glock Barrels

Now that is a good question. I just checked the LW website and they specifically state a length. I don't remember if that was there a couple of years ago when I got my barrel. Unfortunately, I threw my barrel away, so it can't be measured. Either way, this is clearly a sample size of one, which make...

Re: Pet meds for human use

I don't think that this falls under the practice of medicine. Every state has their own definition of what the practice of medicine means, so this would vary by location. I know that substituting fish labeled antibiotics is illegal in the practice of pharmacy. First with the FDA. If I were to give o...

I have a couple of LW conversion barrels. Those work great, no problems. When you say "not long enough" do you mean that the LW barrel was shorter than it was supposed to be? Yes, the barrel was shorter than it was supposed to be. I am sure that you know that during the recoil phase the barrel moves...
