Re: Raleigh, NC (& surrounding areas)

Come to one and find out. :-) At the meetings in the past we've had people go out and research a topic and present to the rest of the group. We also do our planning for upcoming events at these meetings. We have done IFAK (individual first aid kit) group buys and training on how to use them, some se...

Re: Looking at Upgrading to a Better Pistol

Have you considered a CZ ?
A full-size CZ-75B or a Browning Hi-Power conceal easier than the Glock or XD (I've owned all 4 and regularly carry the CZ & BHP, which can share the same holsters).
Another thing that I like about the CZ is the Kadet 22-conversion slide.

Re: Hennessy hammock sizing

It should be fine. The one I have is a Hennessy Asymmetrical Expedition model. What you want to do is sleep in it kind of sideways... not fully lined up with the mount points for the straps. Doing so will allow your body to lie practically level and give you one of the best night's of sleep you've h...

+10 on the BCM Gunfighter design.

One note about military bolt-action rifles (and this definitely goes for my FR-8) they are NOT meant to be babied. To make them work right, you slap the bolt back and slam it forward.

Re: .308 Military grade bolt actions

FR-8 I actually sold my CETME and kept my FR-8. What is it? It is a 3-ring mauser which has been converted to 7.62x51 NATO and fielded to Spanish troops for training prior to the CETME being made widely available. That's why they put the sites on the FR-8 that (almost) match the CETME. It's parkeriz...

Boromokot, Did you do what you thought was right? If so, then you did the right thing. If you had not done the right thing then you would have regretted it later. We don't always know the full extent of the risks of our choices but it you know it is the right thing then let that guide you. We need m...

Aaaah yess... the pop-up targets. There are few gongs out there as well. It's well worth the drive and $15 (or whatever it is now) to attend one of the non-Appleseed events that they have throughout the year. I think we'll be going to the December 11th Korean War Sniper shoot (http://appleseedinfo.o...
