Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

RECOIL - Multiple Reports of Wish.com Glock Sear Arrests by ATF Wish.com is mostly known for its knock-off garbage. In fact, there’s practically an entire YouTube industry surrounding reviewing the questionable products. For some time now, backplates that convert Glock handguns to machineguns have ...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Getting back into reloading. I have not touched it since 2016. But I bought components. Sold the pistol. Got a new one for my birthday. So... I'm loading up .38 and .38+P for my .357. I'm not too worried about over pressure since I'm just going to swim in the .38 pool for a while until I get my sea...

Re: Coffee not essential for life, Swiss government says

There are 2 non-negotiable prep items for me. Coffee and canned condensed milk for my coffee. The Swiss obviously want to save money. It is their money and thier choice.

Re: Coffee not essential for life, Swiss government says

Something some of our Swedish friends have mentioned is Sweden is more concerned with domestic terrorism than with invasion by Russia. So yes, non-NATO countries are preparing, but Russia is just one of the threats. However, for political reasons, it seems the Swedish government is not pointing expl...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Possibly a silly question but... Is there any reason a standard A2 birdcage 1/2-28 thread can't be used on a 1/2-28 thread 9mm? I can't remember the exact number, but the exit hole diameter on a mil-spec A2 birdcage is only around .300....a bit small than the diameter of a 9mm/.355. A few companies...

@NT2C: I forgot to say: if you are concerned about barrier penetration, I would look into Hornedy Critical Duty. I have looked at them and seen them fail spectacularly in some barrier tests, with either minimal or no expansion in some tests, leading to gross penetration. (MAC did one shot through I...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

I really wish LG would do their ammo tests, at least for some calibers (9mm, .38 Sp) for sub-compact/snubbie length barrels. I'd be very interesting in seeing any differences. All their revolver tests are done with both a 2 inch and 4 inch barreled revolver. Both results are posted. https://www.luc...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Pooh honey do list. Yes if you cast your own bullets, use an inexpensive single stage press and reload your brass more than 5 times you can get that low on ammo price. If you are still of working age you need to figure the value of your time. This has been one of my hobbies for years. I have severa...

With 145HP diesel and a curb weight over 5K pounds it is going to be bit more capable than most ATVs. It is very much like an extended Jeep. The USMC often drove them remotely and used them as pack mules to haul gear and light artillery and mortar pieces. IDK anything about parts availability but i...

Looks like a chopped M-151.

Good luck on getting spare parts. For that kind of jack, an ATV is the better long term choice.

Re: My plan for bugin

So your plan is to 1) learn the skills yourself, 2) print instructions for your neighbors, and 3) survive together. That is good! The thing which stands out to me is you have an opportunity to spend time with your neighbors and get to know them, if you don't already. And maybe see who also feels the...
