At least they are not digging the bodies up looking for valuables in the coffins. Yet.

Re: The Coming Civil War

New York presents a number of special challenges due to both the city and state government intent to publicly oppose the Federal government. The only way to avoid involvement in that battle of titans is several hundred miles of distance. The secondary war between NY and its own police is a whole oth...

Re: Fallout 76

I admit, the vanilla game is a little lacking in drama, and its resolution worse, but the beauty is in the fan made mods. Rumor has it, backed by lore elements, this game is going to be a lot of grinding. Vault 76 is supposed to be the first to open, so very little stuff to salvage or settlements to...

Re: The best minimalist PAW rifle?

A rifle that's only accurate to 25 yards? Why? Is the issue a lack of resources such that I can only afford $200 and lost everything else? Even in NYC its certainly possible to "find" substantial amounts of guns and ammo. Probably not legally, however. http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/nyc-crime/q...

Re: Rioting in Germany

The last 3 paragraphs have an interesting choice of verbiage. The shut it down before it escalated which implies a fight involving 80 is not unusal. Apparently 20 to 30 people per side and incidents has happened recently. So I would say large groups of (~80)people with machete in fights are not unc...

Re: Concealed Carry choice

Revolvers do not lend themselves well to ankle holster concealed carry, not as well as semi-auto pistols do (unless bell bottoms make a sudden comeback), often carry less rounds than a small auto, and generally have shorter barrel lengths. So why a revolver and not a lightweight polymer framed semi...

Re: The Return Of The Ruger Police Carbine; The PC9

If you've looked at the bolt and bolt carrier design, this carbine has the potential to use interchangeable bolts for different pistol calibers. Couple this with different caliber takedown barrels and magwells and you have a carbine that could use scrounged ammo so long as the recoil spring and buff...
