Re: Worst SHTF Handgun

I just had a thought about this. Imagine a town of people who for whatever reason all bought 500 S&W revolvers and all learning to shoot them on the day of the Zed apocalypse. That might be the most dangerous town in the world with bullets flying through houses and revolvers sailing out of hands. h...

Re: Original vs Remake of Dawn of the Dead

I'll have to find a copy of the original and watch it again, it's been a very long time since I've seen. I do really like Marcellus Wallace Vs. The Evil Dead though.

Re: SHTF and you can only have one gun

Well, to be honest, I hate the 9x19mm and the jam prone AR15/M16 (the U.S. military claims to have fixed the jam issues with every iteration, yet at gen 4 it still is a jam prone rifle/carbine platform, and the M855.SS109 rounds punch a narrow, little, thru and thru .22 caliber hole that requires m...

Re: SHTF and you can only have one gun

Man, that's a thinker. I guess an high quality AKM with a folding stock, LED tac light and laser sight combo if the scenario is full on WROL, a Glock 21 with laser and light combo on the accessory rails if there is still a military/National Guard presence. And plenty of high capacity mags for both....

Re: Considering buying an SKS, but...

Has anyone with a Yugo had issues with the gas cutoff switch? Or is that a non-issue as long as everything is kept clean? In '05ish when they were coming in by the crate for $89 wholesale I worked in a gun shop. We sold them hand over fist. Out of all the one we sold there were maybe 3 or 4 that wo...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I actually kind of miss the RIA 1911 I used to have. I traded it to a friend for a Ruger P89 and my friend no longer has the gun. So trading the P89 for the 1911 isn't an option anymore. I heard RIA is a solid firearm. What are your experiences? That's one of those guns I wish I'd gotten when they ...

Re: Considering buying an SKS, but...

If you live in a ban state you probably can't add much in the way of CRAPCO accessories anyway. As it sits in its original form, the SKS is the best choice for arming illiterate peasant conscripts overnight. Start adding plastic to it and not only does it get real ugly, it loses the simplicity and r...

Re: Considering buying an SKS, but...

The 59/66 is certainly an interesting piece of history what with the NATO grenade launcher on a Warsaw Pact weapon. You can even get a tennis ball or golf ball launcher for it. I've seen some really cool trench art, as well has Beverly Hills 90210 stickers, on the stocks. It is not, in my opinion a ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Dang. I just checked Gun Broker and there's one listing for an SKS-D with a high bid of $995 right now. If that SKS-D I saw in Houston three years was going for only 450, I missed out on a heck of a deal then. :gonk: I got mine in probably '06. It was considerably less than $450. Part of an estate ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

If you can find ten SKS rifles for $1000 let me know, heck $2500. Unfortunately without my time machine we're both out of luck. For decades the SKS was a $100 gun. I know I'm getting old and I've been around here forever, but when I first joined ZS, dealer cost on a Yugo 59/66 was $88. But hey, tha...

Pro Ported. My old Mossberg was Pro Ported and it helped quite a bit with follow-up shots. Not pro-ported, Vang Comp, or at least a very good copy.Same idea, different execution. The Vang Comp System also includes lengthening the forcing cone and back boring the barrel to tighten shot patterns but ...
