Man, I wish they still made the 96/44. Used prices on them are silly.

Re: Bow vs air rifle for shtf/prepping?

Small game like rabbits and squirrels in your back yard I'd go with an air rifle. You can get really affordable ones these days that are powerful enough for small game. For larger game a bow is the better choice. Yes, you can drop a grand on an air gun that'll take a deer or wild pig, but without el...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Ah, Botach. Placed an order on May 31st for items that showed in stock on the website. Didn't hear anything after a couple weeks so I checked on my order and it said the items were due in to their warehouse on July 1. Check today and it just states "Backorder". Here I thought those issues were behin...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I had a really dumb thought flash through my brain a minute ago. Y'all know the Magnum Research BFR revolvers, right ? I wonder if anyone has ever thought to have one chambered in something like 7.62x39. Now this probably wouldn't work considering the 7.62x39 is kind of tapered and all of the chamb...

Re: A present for my wife ...

Match the gun to the capabilities of the user. I've seen so many people pushed into a 9mm that wasn't ready for it. At the range they can dump a 22 rapid fire into a head size target and when you hand them a 9 they are all over the target. What's more tactically effective for that shooter- putting 3...

Re: An Increase in Violent Street Crime

St Louis is at 106 murders for the first half of the year which puts us ahead of 2019 numbers (194 for the year), which was the second highest in a decade. And the weather hasn't even been hot yet! What I am noticing is the shootings have become more brazen. It used to be most of them happened betwe...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

The purple stuff is marked as training ammo. I'm not quite sure what makes it a training round though. Same brass case as duty ammo, same projectiles, same bullet weight. All I can figure is they're slightly reduced power but that makes no sense as it would be more likely to cause failures in cycli...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

@PistolPete I am aware that the mayor "doxxed" several people. I fail to see how that is relevant to homeowners protecting themselves from 500 protestors, some armed, who were trespassing on private property. The issue is between the protesters and the city government. Private citizens are not an a...

One can hope! That's the main reason I keep a .40 cal around, for those times that cheap police and alphabet agency surplus ammo hits the market. And agencies have been stocking up in record numbers in recent years, it would be nice for shooters if police get defunded and have to sell some of that ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I'd love to be able to buy one of those Bearcat armored trucks, but I'll settle for a PD Remington 870 or maybe a couple plate carriers if they decide to surplus those out. I'm actually kind of curious as to what sort of equipment the PDs would surplus out should they have to. Any of the military s...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

What we have learned especially from civil wars of the last 30 years is elites (successful ones, anyway) have learned to lever people into in-groups and out-groups and force the "neutral" to get off the fence and join a side (for sheer survival). Actually, elites have managed that for a while. Chai...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

It could affect the availability of police surplus firearms and gear though, including new but unissued gear, and that would be something to share on ZS. Prepping gets expensive and if wer can save a few bucks buying surplus gear it might help some of us. One can hope! That's the main reason I keep...

And the models they made in the years after they moved the factory are downright junk. The finishing on newly manufactured Marlins falls behind Rossi ...
