Re: Lots of sick kids

Anybody who's using different PPE for illegal immigrants than they use for Joe Schmoe who's lived across the street for 40 years is doing it wrong. Universal precautions means not to make stupid assumptions that certain types of people don't pose a real risk because [insert bias of your choice here...

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

Got a ballistics question and I'm in a small jam. Gun season for deer starts tomorrow and I've got the day off. I've run out of my usual powder for 308, so I picked up a few boxes of winchester 150 gr. I shot all that up this morning as I was rocking it hard. My groups were fabulous. I ran out to m...

Re: Lots of sick kids

The problem is three-fold. -Infrastructure of the countries that the illegal aliens are coming from. -Cultural differences based on the sewage system and lack of healthcare. -Government relocating these children wherever with little medical screening. First problem, the sewage system and local infra...

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

Thanks for the shotgun stock info, guys. After I get the stock sorted, I'm going to have to do something about the front sight. It's a lovely fiber optic sight, but it's on the barrel slightly crooked. It looks like somebody just said, "Oh, that's close enough" and plonked down some super glue. Jus...

Re: Closing down the shop.

That's jacked up. I enjoyed reading your posts, seeing the pics of the places you camped and hearing your opinions on gear in PM's. Judging from the pics and stories you've lived your life well, so even if things do turn out for the worst you have that. Some people just stayed at home, you didn't. G...

So, in my extremely slow quest to de-Mad-Maxify my Mossberg, I think I have found the stock I want to put on it. Anybody have experience with ATI's Akita Adjustable Stock ? I have some experience with ATI, but not with that particular stock. ATI seriously isn't that good. I had an SKS that I bought...

Get some button head socket bolts and nylon lock nuts (or jam 2 regular nuts together + loctite)---you will have to have an Allen wrench to remove; if by chance Goober has a pair of pliers or a crescent wrench, he will not be able to grip the bolt head. http://www.mcmaster.com/#button-head-socket-c...

Also, I do believe natural disasters, war, civil war, riots and economic collapse are a little more likely than orcs or aliens. Pretty much my only point. I've seen some of the former before (natural disasters, riots and hard economic times although I wouldn't exactly call it collapse). The ones I ...

Re: My First Pistol: What are the Options?

I don't know where the OP is at, but it's really common here to find Glocks for below $400. Just saw several here that people were looking to get rid of for $300. A couple of those were 2nd Gen and a couple were 3rd Gen, but there's nothing wrong with 2nd Gen guns. http://i468.photobucket.com/albums...

Re: My First Pistol: What are the Options?

Like the others have said, without more info that's a difficult question to answer. So keeping that in mind that it might be a carry gun, a home defense gun, a plinking gun etc I'm going to say the gun that that's recommended the most on here simply because it's the jack of all trades...the Glock 19...
