Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

Opticsplanet must have heard me, as they just sent out a ten percent off code good through the weekend. Of course, me being me, turns out that Nightforce products aren’t eligible for any discounts. Bah. Which model are you looking for? You may be able to find it cheaper elsewhere. Example: NightFor...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

Could also be a holster that’s not very secure on the belt. It could have slid farther back than normal, and wobbled so that the butt is facing the wrong way, for a cross-draw for a leftie.

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

It’s going to be an M110-ish build.

Hell, some od theparts are nigh unavailable no matter what, so a true clone is impossible.

No clue as to why Arfcom turned into a bunch of trolls and self-proclaimed 'experts' since I've never been a member of that site. As for ZS, I think some folks just drifted away from it.

A couple places I looked, like Midwest Gun Works and Arms Unlimited are showing it as "discontinued" or "out-of-stock".

I'd love to get one but I have no local CMP affiliated club I can join. (And the wife is getting pretty firm about "No more new guns") :( At the risk of angering your wife, you don’t need a local club. I joined a club online and never went to a meeting or anything when I bought my CMP M1 Garand.

Does anyone still use a OWB friction holster? I was cleaning up and realized mine have all been relegated to non-use. a what?

That or they wanted to see if their experiment would work with just the materials they had on hand at the time.

Probably the latter. Those storage bags have been around since the nineties.

Looks like a straight up plaster cast. That's what I was thinking as well. Looks like they also plugged any holes in the rifle with clay. At least I hope that's clay and not JB Weld or a similar product. Why not just put it in one of those long-term storage mylar bags that have replaced cosmoline? ...

Re: Active shooter, Baton Rouge, targeting police

While some of the smaller municiple agencies run one man cars, here in SoCal, most police cars will have two cops in them. The departments who run one man cars, always have to send two cars to each call, so it never really made sense to me. I guess having "more cars" visible in the field makes peopl...
