A grey Tundra is a good 'grey man' vehicle in there parts. Not quite as good as a white F150, but close.

Re: 2020 Hurricane Season

I was doing a parking lot check on the Texas Task Force 1 building and parking lot this afternoon, and spoke with one of their guys. He said they except a good bit of flooding on the lower Rio Grande, along the lines of Hurricane Dolly in 2008.

Low- to mid-$40k range is also what the most recent Singer or Union Switch and Signal M1911 auctions I've seen went for.

I'm betting these go higher.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Like I said, not really any threat to Glock's market share. To be fair, thus far even S&W, FN, Beretta, and CZ - all far more established in the pistol market on both the .mil/LEO and civilian sides - haven't really managed to mount much of a threat, combined.

Re: FAL Kit

Yeah, you can build a really nice AR for what the total cost of all the pieces is going to run.

OTOH, I already have an AR-10 and an M14 clone. An Izzy FAL will go nicely with my 7.62 Izzy Mauser.

I was going to go to the range this weekend, but around Wednesday the chance of rain was 90% until early afternoon.

Re: Why do some countries have very few COVID-19 serious illnesses and deaths??

Interesting article on quarantine, as practiced until relatively recently. This is centralized quarantine, as described in Leviticus 13 and 14, (and who knows, quite possibly practiced around the same time in China), not this self-isolation lockdown thing we've been doing. The most interesting point...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Part of getting the best deal is having an intended purpose and finding something that fits that purpose. So, what's the build going to be and what kind of quality level are they looking for? I think the intended purpose is "good enough and as cheap as possible". Really, anymore there is little to ...

Only .243 AR I've seen came from Olympic Arms and those were pretty rare even back when Olympic was still around.

This is for my "Most Triggering EBR" project - i.e., how many AWB features can I manage to include on a single rifle? Thus, the important piece is not the fixed front sight itself - it's the bayonet lug, which you can only get as part of the A-frame, M-16/M-4 type gas block. FWIW, though I dunno th...
