Re: Truck Rollover... Lessons Learned

Glad to hear you're okay. I just hit the ditch an hour ago. Freezing rain and wind just took me completely off the road. Im driving a truck with camper and i was sure it was going to tip. Luckily it didn't and there was only a few inches of snow in the ditch and i was able to just drive right out. S...

Possible tampering or my own carelessness.

As i arrived home from work last night I noticed a faint smell of natural gas on our front steps but i didn't think much of it. I went inside kissed the wife and then went to preheat the natural gas bbq so i could enjoy some chicken for supper. As i opened our patio door i noted a hissing sound comi...

Re: "Interesting" occurance at the bus station

People around here don't operate on such a fancy system. They just demand that you "lend" them your phone, then if you don't they immediately attack you themselves. They don't bother with accomplices and sneaky tactics here. I've had it happen to me already... Normally I will never admit that I eve...

Re: strangest thing you have ever seen

One afternoon I received a phone call saying that I needed to pick up my mom from the school where she works as a teachers aide. I hopped in my rusted out '86 Ford Bronco II and headed for the school. As I pulled into the parking lot, I had a feeling that something wasn't right. I spotted my mom in ...

Re: Tavor

They are in Canada and they are not all they are cracked up to be. Trigger feels almost staple gunnish in its operation, and the accuracy is lacking at about 3-4 MOA. When you can get a 16" AR which is almost as compact, half the price, lighter, better ergonomics, faster mag changes, better trigger,...

Re: Home defense bullet suggestions for varmint rifle?

Sauce. I haven't heard that Savage had ejection problems, nor do I ever recall the 1:9 twist being kosher with anything over 62gr boat tails. it won't blow up, but it's certainly not going to be as stable, and therefore as accurate. Wrong x2. I used an 12FV for coyote hunting, and a 12 VLP for comp...

Re: Home defense bullet suggestions for varmint rifle?

Unless you live on a farm where varmints could be attacking your cattle leave the savage unloaded and locked up until you are going to shoot long range. Seriously? You have an ak and you want to use a 26 inch barrel gun that doesn't even eject rounds reliably. The savage will shoot 75 grain bullets ...

This is the version that is not readily available in the united states. It is a firearm of the highest quality and would be ...

Without special authority, the public is not able to access the registered offenders in Canada. So I doubt this would have anything to do with it.

I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not, But as an EMT in Alberta Canada I was told to never use a tourniquet.

Re: $75 SKS deal-Attention Canadians

The fact that we Canadians can buy,75$ SKS, 400$ m14, and 250$ SVT-40's is overshadowed by the fact that we cant even buy AKs, fals, or hk's or use any m4 variants or semi-autos with barrels less than 18.6 inches anywhere but certified ranges.

Re: Springfield M1A BOB Failure?

Check the gas system screw on the front of your rifle. If it is opened the gasses escape and the rifle will only cycle manually. It must be closed to operate in semi auto. Thats your problem.

Re: Thoughts on Marlin X7 for first long range rifle.

Instead of getting the SS X7 I would go with the X7VH which is the heavy barreled version. It is 2-300 dollars cheaper than the standard offerings from Savage and Remington and should get you out to 800 yards with little effort.

The best buy in the economy bolt guns right now is the Marlin X Series.
