Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I had a really dumb thought flash through my brain a minute ago. Y'all know the Magnum Research BFR revolvers, right ? I wonder if anyone has ever thought to have one chambered in something like 7.62x39. Now this probably wouldn't work considering the 7.62x39 is kind of tapered and all of the chamb...

Places that prohibit the otherwise legal carrying of arms should be required, by law, to provide secure storage for visitor's weapons.

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Bottom line takeaway from all this? It's best if you don't live near any political figure or celebrity because one day you might find yourself sitting on the edge of "ground zero" of a mob's attention. If you do find yourself sitting there, don't make yourself a secondary target. Let "sit down, shu...

I present to you the ultimate in manual cutting systems: the Kukrax . Do you like the cutting power and utility of kukris? The simplicity of purpose of an ax? Just put the two in a room, add a bit of bow-chicka-wow-wow, and you end up with this beaut: https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/wp-content/...

Re: Atlanta Walkout

Of note, it seems that Minnesota has a castle doctrine for the home, but not businesses or other such; outside of the home they have a duty to retreat. If they're reducing the police force, I wonder if that will end up changing. Given the guy that wishes he'd given his car keys to a mugger, I'm not...

The information I have, is that the roads were private and not maintained by the city, county or state. It seems doubtful that the city or county would allow this enclave to put up wrought-iron gates, blocking off a public road...but I suppose it's possible. I have seen conflicting information on t...

One can hope! That's the main reason I keep a .40 cal around, for those times that cheap police and alphabet agency surplus ammo hits the market. And agencies have been stocking up in record numbers in recent years, it would be nice for shooters if police get defunded and have to sell some of that ...
