Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Yesterday was budget AR day for me at the range. https://i.imgur.com/finkAh1.jpg?2 Both rifles are built with PSA kits on TN Arms lowers. Not including the rear irons and the red dot, both cost lest than $325. (If built with the PSA kit parts, which the pink one obviously wasn't.) Pink rifle is a PS...

Maybe we should sharply increase the taxes on Senators and Representatives in order to reduce the amount of stupid ideas coming out of DC by 80%.

That was the so-called Cloward-Pliven strategy as well, except their idea was to collapse the .gov by overloading the welfare system.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Most officers that I know don't turn their body cams on when driving - that's what the car's much bigger camera system, with more data storage and drawing power from the car, is for. Depending on the car's camera system, it may or may not record the actions of the driver and/or front seat passengers...

Re: The Coming Civil War

Not everyone should have access to guns — domestic abusers, for example, have proven by their actions that they cannot be trusted with that kind of responsibility — and not everyone needs it. No one without a significant amount of training should be handling a firearm at all, which is why I think d...

Re: Updating my Zombie Squad AR.

OK, I really like that stock for a project that's pops in and out of my head. Not to threadjack, but it would be a shootable AR built to look as much as possible as a Blastech A280. (Rebel commando rifle from Return of the Jedi.)

But the lawsuit being won simply doesn't make sense.
Lawsuits like this are won because the jury feels sorry for the family of the "victim" and they figure the state (in this case) or the defendant/the defendant's insurance company can pay out the $$$ and not miss it.

Randomly wondering if there was something in that area that was actually a target, or a damaged bomber dumping its load to try to get home, or just dumped because they couldn't find the target, or what?

How did it come to be there?

Re: Flooding in Houston - May 2019

The other big thing more development does is cover up dirt with pavement and buildings - i.e. non-porous surfaces. Which means more runoff going into streams and rivers, instead of soaking in. I live in Brazos County, about 2 hours north of Houston metro, between the Brazos and Navasota rivers. We'v...

Re: Projection of extended blackouts for CA this summer

The power shut downs will be to wild fire prone areas during times with high winds. This after the Camp Fire last year was caused by wind taking down a transmission line, causing sparks in a dry area. Urban areas aren't generally wild fire prone. Now, if transmission lines from power plants TO urban...

They've got 1000 rounds of American Eagle 5.56 55gr with 10 PMags for $359.99 at the moment.

No idea what kind of a deal that is, since I don't know the going price for AE 55gr.

If a pregnant women turns zombie...why would the baby be born at all?

Zombies are dead. Or undead, anyway. But they're not growing/aging/changing, so the baby/fetus would just remain as it was, where it was - inside the mother. At least that's what makes the most sense to me.

Most of those old bolters are quite sturdy (especially the Mauser based ones). Of which I prefer the (substitute standard) M1917 to the M1903. (I have 2 of the former)
