A place with no name ... BullOnParade got some land

So as of Tuesday, an offer was accepted on a 10 acre wooded lot in Central* Ontario. The land is solid coniferous forest with 110 yard frontage on a municipal road allowance, about 3/4 of a mile south of the maintained road. About a mile from two separate lakes in opposite directions. The neighbouri...

Re: Faraday cage contruction?

Here's the problem with EMP prepping: no one knows anything. The "experts" say a lot of different things. Some say a solid steel box is the only option, some say plug everything into grounded surge protectors and you'll be fine. But are they talking about an atmospheric nuclear EMP or a solar flare ...

Re: Take down or traditional

That barrel tension adjustment seems to be an important bit! I'll have to look up the Chiappa manual and see what they offer.

You never really stated your purpose for it but it seems to me like a Chiappa mares leg in .357 might be right for you.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.
But do I want a standard variety Mare's Leg, or a takedown version?!

Re: Take down or traditional

Sorry to post and split. I'm (less than) three weeks away from getting married. Kind of got derailed from my original post. I'm looking at a Chiappa mares leg in .357, and while a lot can be done with a solid 586 (686), or GP100, they don't fit my needs (in Canada). Lots of great options out there f...

Take down or traditional

I've been eyeing a Mare's leg variety gun for a while now. I keep coming back to the Chiappa take down selection ... a take down rifle has some advantages, especially in the packability department. But moving parts ... move? Who's got experience with take down firearms, and what are some things to b...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

Down Jackets/Vests

Mid layer down has become a trendy fashion in the past couple of years. Does it stand up to real world use outside of urban centres? I've always stayed away from down/synthetic shells for outdoors purposes, because the odds are if I'm in the woods, I will likely be near a fire at some point, and an ...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

So I just got the Warrior/Emerald lever action in the mail today. Very pleased initially. Despite a rather rough action, I think it has potential. It's actually very closely based off an 870, which I'm very happy about, because that's the shotgun platform I'm most invested in already. Pictured here ...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

FTFY. Thanks. Is that "Warrior" shotgun the same as the Adler lever shotgun that the Australians get ? They look pretty similar and given that both are Turkish guns, it wouldn't surprise me if they were the exact same gun just with different names for different markets. Looks a little different fro...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

That's pretty good halfapint. A lot of guys talk down about reloading for 9mm and .223, because of the availability of cheap/surplus ammo. But your recipe sounds like a sweet spot.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Rifle ammo definitely costs more to reload, but compared to obscure caliber, match grade ammunition, the savings are there. I can reload .38 for a third of the price of factory, and I doubt I spent $500 to start between a turret press, dies, tumbler and media. I can make 100 rounds in an hour, that'...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

What's everyone using for a scale these days? I need something new, my cheap Hornady scale doesn't tare properly anymore.

Prefer something small and battery powered, but a 110V wouldn't be the end of the world.

Who's using what?

Re: Sub2k or AR for 9mm

I too own a gen1 S2K and vote against it. It's too small frame for people over 5'9". Ive heard of the receiver issues, apparently gen2 may be improved. It has awkward, though simple controls. The bolt/cocking handle is a long motion for new shooters. I modified mine to lock to the left, so I could l...

Re: If an AR is not an option ... Tavor?

I assume that no variations of the AR (& AK) are permissible in any form. I am also wondering if a Tavor would be permitted. Accordingly I would chose either a Ruger Mini -14 or a Mini-30. I have used the Mini-14 in the past and especially like the SS versions for use in a maritime environment. The...
