Re: H&R Handirifle 45-70 power on a budget.

He's arguing a technicality. But he is correct. Smokeless powder is classified as a propellant, not an explosive. Therefore it falls under different rules for handling/storage/purchase/allowable qty. Black powder is classified as an explosive. At the end of the day, no matter how you want to argue t...

Re: Effective range for a .22 LR?

Depends entirely upon what you're shooting at, what you're shooting it out of, how good you are, and what kind of work you're willing to put into recovery. A 22 will kill game a long way from the muzzle. But it isn't going to do it with anything short of a brain shot, quickly. If you don't mind doin...

Re: H&R Handirifle 45-70 power on a budget.

I would just like to point out that you CAN NOT safely load black powder in any rifle round.... If you are going to handload PLEASE follow safety procedures and posted recipes from powder and bullet manufacturers. You can believe what ever you want but I've reloaded .223, 30-30, 45/70 and 308 with ...

Re: movement upon contact

You disagree, but then you pretty much said exactly what I said :?: What I was saying is that its situationally dependent. That attacking through the ambush, dropping prone, getting off the X, etc it all depends on your scenario/surroundings, and you need to be adaptable. You have to make a decision...

Re: movement upon contact

IMO, the biggest difference in IA drills, is situational. You have to be able to make a decision on the fly, based upon what you see, and the surroundings/environment and go with it. Not making a decision will get you killed. We can all sit around and talk about how VOA and IA saves the day. But her...

pretty much anything in a bolt action would bake more sense.


If accuracy was what you were after, it'd be hard to beat a CZ 452.

Re: 10/22 Ruger into a M200 Cheytac Intervention

Ok, but again why put a semi auto into a bolt action body?


There are litterally tons of viable automatic, and semi-automatic bodys you could find to drop a semi auto rifle into that would make tons more sense.

Re: 10/22 Ruger into a M200 Cheytac Intervention

Why would you put a semi-auto 22 into a bolt action body?


I mean, I think a 22 M200 would be kind of neat for plinking at the range. But I'd atleast stick with a bolt action.

Re: Memphis Woman's Dying Words Help Boyfriend Who Shot Her

Again a 12 year old breaking into house to steal my xbox? Not exactly a likely scenario. But even if it did happen, I'd be perfectly legal holding him at gun point, or letting my retired MP dog have a go at him. However, the point of what I was saying, which you missed, was that anyone who's breakin...

I would have mentioned what if the person in question was just a 12-year-old kid messing around in the wrong place, but you said "period, end, full stop" before I got a chance, so I guess no further discussion is possible or permitted now. I really don't think its realistic to expect a 12 year old ...

I don't see where there is a problem.


If they're in your house, they're wrong period, end, full stop.

It doesn't matter if they're just going to steal your stuff, or trying to kill you, the threat is exactly the same, and should be dealt with precisely the same way.

Re: Pimping out my m1 garand

Where the issues become more prevalent, and what I meant by ammo your gun is not designed for, is when you run on either end of the spectrum extremes. When guys start throwing the 180-200 or 220 grain bullets, or the light bullets,at extremely fast velocitys, you run into issues over-gassing your g...

Re: Tactical vest??

You would be much better served with a good pistol belt, holster and 2-3 mag pouches, than you would with a NcStar vest, or anything similar to that.



If you really feel the need for a vest, you can get a military FLC for fairly cheap. And molle on whatever pouches you feel a need for.

Your militia doesn't have to be tougher than the gangs, just tougher than the village down the road.

My point was everyone is going to need to be a soldier in addition to their day job. Remember the scene in 300.

Just FYI incase you didn't know. But this is completely incorrect, and shooting ammo its not designed for, will eventually bend your op-rod and disable your gun. For the M1 or M1a, you need the schuster nut to be able to safely use modern ammunition, aside from the ammo made just for the M1 and M1a...
