Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I know in theory there are supposed to be accuracy differences between pencil barrels and standard barrels. But if going for light weight, I would look into the pencil barrels. And cut it to 14.5 inches or so and pin a hider or comp on there. Just some thoughts. I'm not a fan of the metal handguard...

Re: Baofeng Radios. TIP # 437 and 438 - DUAL WATCH FUNCTION

I just received my second Baofeng HT after ordering in from Amazon. My first is a UV5RV2+ which at the time I ordered it, was the most up to date UV5R model. There were other high power Baofeng models that were later models for higher price. But for a test, $27 was where I wanted to be price wise. I...

Ah, right, its a testing fee which is $15 in my AO. In my mind it costs $$ to get the license if you have to pay for the required test. My bad.

Yes, the same round the VSS Vintorez uses: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/ce/Vss_vintorez_01.jpeg/3...
