Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I've got plans within the next year or so to pick up the PC9 with the free float handguard.

Plans include running Glock mags exclusively in it and maybe selling off the SR mag adapter to buy more Glock mags. Then I'll probably pair it up with my Glock 17 and make it my third line set up.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Cool. Thanks for the link, NT2C. You guys really aren't helping with my budgetary self-restraint with all this PC9 talk. :p I'm supposed to be the bad influence, not the badly influenced! (I've more-or-less accidentally convinced probably a half-dozen people to buy various guns.) Dude, if I'm ever t...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Nice to see some options for aftermarket stocks for the PC9. I'm really digging the looks of the Copper Custom PC9 chassis. I'm diggin' the extended mag release on the CROM chassis (hopefully their 2.0 chassis will have an ambi or reversible release)....that's my biggest complaint with the stock Ru...

Re: Climate change. World ends by 2050.

Speaking of the world ending, I think for as long as the Earth has been around, there's probably been folks going around saying "The end is coming". Hell, for all we know there probably was a dinosaur with a sandwich board that said that. Only difference is that one was right and their world ended. ...

It is a Monday so Vice is running Climate Change TEOTWAWKI again. The date is a moving target of course.
I sort of envision the climate change deal like the old Peanuts comic strip where Charlie Brown is trying to kick the football and Lucy keeps moving it just before he's able to kick it.

Re: Lost Hiker in Hawaii Found, Search Continues for Common Sense

I think we can all agree that the hiker made bad decisions. It's a good cautionary tale for people to read and think about. Not taking a cell phone. No EDC. Keeping walking for days instead of waiting could in some situations be debatable, even though that's the good advice to follow when you think...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Either or both could cause deterioration of the powder or primer, making them less reliable. Which could lead to a possible hangfire, right ? Misfire or hangfire, yes. Neither the water/soap nor the dryer heat (as far as I know) are going to make the propellant more reactive and cause pressures to ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Hadn't thought to try and shoot it, though. I'd expect that a rimfire wouldn't seal against water very well, but centerfire HST rounds have sealer around the primer pocket and I think the case mouth too, so it may have dry powder and a still good primer. It'll be interesting to test it and see. Jus...

Re: Lever Action vs. Revolving Carbine

Somewhat humorously, someone was leaving the range with a lever when I showed up this morning. Beautiful gun: brass receiver, octagonal barrel, nice red looked like walnut furniture, and a ladder sight. Pretty sure, not certain, it was a Henry with an aftermarket rear sight. While picking my brass,...

Re: Lever Action vs. Revolving Carbine

Now .500 S&W is a totally different beast. No way in hell would I fire one off in a revolver. A rifle might be different because of the weight, but I'm not touching off a .500 S&W in a handgun. firing a .500 mag revolver with a muzzle break isn't bad. I was pleasantly surprised at the lower than ex...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

It's not PSA, but Classic Firearms has a deal for a ten pack of Amend 2 AR mags for a little under 70 bucks right now.

I'm kind of tempted to pick up a pack and see if the mags are any good. Or I may just wait until PSA has another buy 10 get 10 free mag deal.

Anyone use the Amend2 mags ?

Re: Lever Action vs. Revolving Carbine

Henry is coming out with a .30-30 with a side gate, so you can load it from the front or the back. Mebbe that will eventually filter down to the pistol caliber models. One does hope. After reading the comments, I’m leaning towards a Marlin model 1894 in .357/.38 C'mon...Big Horn Armory 89 in .500 S...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I've never even measured how many yards the pit I go shoot at is, but it can't be very much. If it goes past 200 yards I'd be surprised. Which is fine because I'm not planning on making shots past that distance anyway. It might become a problem if I ever get into precision or long range shooting, th...

Re: The definitive ZS MRDS thread

I currently own two MRDS, a Bushnell TRS-25 and some Weaver branded micro red dot (not sure what the model name is since I bought it secondhand at a local flea market). The TRS-25 used to live on my AK, but I moved it over to my AR when I figured the spot I had it on my AK would fry it due to heat. ...
