Re: CR123 Batteries

I recently bought 18650 rechargeable Li-ion batteries and charger from amazon at a reasonable price. They came already fully charged [surprise to me]. But I haven't had them long enough to say they are great. 18650 replaces two cr123 in series. I went to the rechargeable to avoid all that was mentio...

Re: New upper for an old rifle

What's rifle insurance? It's weird how I can tell, and have a different feeling, when I'm around someone who 'grew up' with guns [comfortable, natural extension, and respectful]* vs someone who decided later in life to 'get into' guns, or even worse are forced into it like a spouse or Sig Other.

Didn't you used to get a pistol case, a kydex holster, a double mag kydex holster and 3 mags when you bought an XD? But wait there's more. You get a backstrap safety. :(

Re: Handling Stink during Bugging In

Backflow preventers (which is what those one-way valves are called) don't always have to be installed on the main line to protect your house. Good point. We do not have basements in my area but I had forgotten that backflow preventers are common in basement bathrooms. The clean out is right next to...

Re: Handling Stink during Bugging In

It is easy to put in either a check valve which allows the water to flow one way or a a manual valve that you would actuate. While easy, it is not cheap and will require excavation of your sewage line, city permits, inspections, etc. Think $3,000 + in cost. One alternative expedient is to get some ...

I've thought about this before and here's a couple of things to add to consider. 1. As a considerate dog owner, and someone who's used those same bags to pickup raccoon 5#!+ on my deck, and as a lifelong defecator myself. Dog stuff is the least stinky stuff IMO. You should test out those baggies for...

I picked up "Watch Dogs 2" on sale at the local Walmart a couple weeks back. It's a pretty good game and I don't see why a lot of gamers were so negative against it. Yeah, it's not GTA V, but I don't think it was ever meant to be the same as that game. I love GTA V, but I'm not going to compare eve...

One possibility is to call FB a temporary rally point if things go dark, and someone buy or secure a good domain name for another forum.

You can get a quality non adjustable gas block for mid 30's and sometimes lower. Almost all aftermarket gas blocks use bolts to hold them on, there are two main types, clamp on and set screws. The set screws require that a dimple be set into the barrel requiring a jig for proper placement, alignment...
