Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Not a big fan of PCC's. That is a nice thing about the BO, if I want lower power cartridges for some reason there is a load for that. I can't really go up with a 9mm into a rifle like useful range. Now a 10mm does a bit better but you still lose range, the cost of the gun skyrockets and the ammo is...

Re: Seattle is Dying

Everything in that link I posted comes down to this

Crime Index
3
(100 is safest)

Safer than 3% of U.S. Cities

Trying to justify how safe you feel or that the biggest complaint is property crime is ludicrous

I just had an, "Oh shit!" moment here when I came back in from spray painting my steel targets and some parts for the lights that needed a coat of paint. Yesterday, while working on the lights in the garage, I was wearing my Nebo Rebel headlamp and I earlier been recharging it on my desk in my offi...

Re: All Things Salt

Honestly, I think you are looking at this wrong. Salt is cheap. Buy a little extra and be done with it. If after five years there is no salt to be had, it aint coming back and you are going to have to procure a new means of getting it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zf4JrsqlIkU https://www.youtube.c...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Honestly, I'm surprised they aren't more common with police departments. The big question though is, will this help or hinder the push to make suppressors non-NFA items? Police agencies still have to do all the paperwork to get one. Then there is the issue of the optics of "militarizing" the police...

Re: Home defence with an airgun? Countries with no fire arms allowed

I live in a relatively dangerous place where is almost illegal to defend your self or your home. Without the capacity to instantly disable an attacker. Most weapons would only serve to infuriate an attacker . But the more telling is the portion I quoted. Even if the airgun was capable of being used...

Re: Seattle is Dying

This hour long video details Seattle dipping in to WROL scenario. The murder rate in Seattle has suffered an astonishing turn around as well although this is not discussed. Once one of the nations' lowest it climbed 20% last year and will likely climb by the same amount this year. The police are qu...

Re: How did Venezuela end up this way?

I'm kinda done with this thread.

I can only surmise that the reason Venezuela ended up this way is because the people there wa...

Re: Southern California Earthquake Swarm Takes Unexpected Turn

Smaller quakes are good. They're bleeding off energy and not becoming larger quakes. It's like scraping loose and peeling paint. The scraper moves along with small, hardly perceptible impacts as you get the loose chips, then for a second, you get hung up on a bigger one that isn't so easy to break ...
