Re: show off your remington 870 12ga

No paperwork or tax stamp for Canadians. Only restriction we have is the overall length cannot be shorter than 18 inches when fully collapsed or folded (some shotguns with a 12" barrel would require a stock, but the 870 could be a PGO). I wouldn't have bothered with the second barrel if it weren't ...

Re: show off your remington 870 12ga

Very cool 12"! We can get those here with no paperwork(unsure about you guys), although the barrel ring is in a different spot, meaning it's unable to have regular barrels swap onto it, which is a shame! Otherwise I would have bought one and a few extra barrels. Yeah, I wasn't sure about the shot si...

Re: show off your remington 870 12ga

Cheers for the feedback. I usually wear gloves, but might try it without to see what happens. The only thing I found playing around with it at home was the slide-release button got a little further away, so gotta get used to that!

Re: Need Spacesaver cup, in Australia.

I'm in NZ mate, feel the pain on the shipping! Amazon usually has terrible shipping costs getting stuff to me, so I don't use it anymore. You might have lucked out there, though!
I've got the GSI Glacier Cup, and it works a treat. They all look much-of-a-muchness to me! Haha.

Re: Bug Out Goggles??

Found the ESS Advancer goggles, and also the Revision Bullet Ants.
All a similar price to the Wileys, anyone have any experience with either of these models?
Also saw some 'Bobster Bugeye' goggles. Cheap, look alright, but no mention about a protection rating. Again, any experience?

Cheers,
Sean.

Not sure why everyone is so excited about Hiluxes... The L series motors aren't that great, and reknowned for cracking heads for little reasons like not having a huge exhaust pipe to get rid of gasses quick enough, namely the 2L. 5L's are pretty good. A bit thirsty but actually pull very well. Front...

Re: Need help making a first aid kit.

Done any First Aid courses? Do you know how to use anything more than bandaids and gauze? I'd say stick with what you know how to use, maybe throw in some quikclot(or similar) and some anti-bacterial cream for your typical grazes.
