Re: IWI Jericho

Dad's got one. It's not a service pistol or anything like that, though, just something he throws in the console of his truck or glovebox of his cart sometimes when he's in the pasture. The SA trigger pull's OK, DA's heavy. The gun's kinda heavy. Accuracy and reliability were unremarkable (it shoots ...

Re: Social Unrest Going Viral Globally

My College kid just said something about there being a lot of cases of the Black Plague reported in China, and a recurring theory that Hong Kong is actually people trying to flee the county, and China covering it up. Wonder if there's any validity to that? Can you get a link? Did your kid say where...

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

UTG picatinny rail mounted quick detach bipod, and pic rail adapters for my various rifles. I'd been thinking of a Magpul bipod, but several reviews mentioned it wasn't great with heavy rifles; my .243 is pretty front-heavy. The only complaint I have with the bipod is that it's a bit fiddlier than I...

Re: Home Defense Choices

Pistol. Smaller, handier, and against your average burglar sufficient. Also, I'd hazard that if it comes to blows your average joe will be able to pistol-whip someone more effectively than they could use a longarm.

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I picked up one of the 6.5C Axis last year the OTD price was around $159 after hunting season. It is a cheap way to get in to the cartridge. I remember that. I so wish I'd had the extra $200 to throw at a 111 in .30-06. Or whatever ridiculously low price it was. I much preferred the older stock to ...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Got out to the range with my 3 (current) favorite rifles, preparatory to possible deer hunting. They're all shooting between excellently and acceptably, with the M1 being the worst. I don't mind, since I really don't have much time behind the trigger with it. I do need to adjust the .243 up about an...

Re: An AR-15 does not Legally have a Receiver & ATF Cannot Regulate It?!

I guess that this is going to be a non-issue. I don't believe that the courts would rule that the lack of a comma makes many modern firearms not have a receiver, or that all those already existing one have to get all the components that are listed engraved with the mandatory markings for a receiver...
