Re: My new range toy love affair.... is a HiPoint??

It is honestly worth every penny. It is not perfect, but for what you pay, it is a great beater gun. I think everyone should own one, just how I think everyone should own a junker clunker car at least once in their lifetime. I just took it apart for the first time (and last time) to clean it (also t...

I love gun resurrections! My favorite is an old Ithaca 16ga that I got for free. Just something about fixing it and making it your own just makes the gun so much better! You did really nice work on it, you could never tell it was spray painted Denver Broncos colors haha

Re: Modern and practical camo clothing. What to choose?

Here's a site that might give you some ideas and info. It is written about the US camo trials for our soldiers. Also note, it is written by the guy who designed one of the competing camos (US4CES camo pattern) so it is biased, but it definitely gives some good info. http://www.hyperstealth.com/camo-...

Re: Modern and practical camo clothing. What to choose?

With you being in Scandinavia, my post may not apply. I like regular hunting camo for a few reasons: 1. Patterns like "mossy oak infinite" and "real tree" are very cheap at most retailers, getting a whole outfit for maybe $50 USD for everything. 2. I don't like the militaried camo because I feel it ...

Re: Finally replaced the Wrangler JK... MAJOR UPDATE

Hey've I've got a question about the aftermarket bumper: Does it have an effect on the airbag sensors? It seems to me that a non-compressing aftermarket bumper would really make the airbag sensors twitchy, because you'd basically adding 15mph of impact force to any detected impact. Airbag on a Jeep...

I've seen a fair amount of used Glock 19s for about $450. Would you be averse to something like that? I don't drink the Glock kool-aid, hence my signature haha. I think they are great guns, but I feel there are much better options for me, personally. On a side note, I picked up the Ruger on a steal...

I know this is old... but here are the scenarios I see in the OP's situation (from most innocent to guilty): 1. Dude did not plan on running out of gas and had no gas can. Being a stranger on someone's property always makes things awkward. 2. Dude was a junkie looking to get some quick cash with a s...

Re: Planning an SBR ak, want input on supressors please

Put one of those oil can filters on it. Big and ugly. And put the crappiest wood stock you can, mismatched of course, and paint the metal to look distressed. AK suppressors aren't as good as AR suppressors, so you might as well do it in some Mad Max style... it won't be scary quiet, but it will be s...

Definitely seems like you've done your homework and have thought about it for a while. I say if you want it and your mind is made up, go for it. If you don't like it, you can always sell or trade it (assuming Switzerland let's you do that kinda stuff)

Re: Shotgun for someone with low vision

I think any shotgun... pump or even break action... will work well as long as it has prominent controls to help with sensory recognition. The newer Savage 320 pumps are cheap, well made (newer ones without the spot welded pump), and have large gripping areas for positive control. Using #4 game loads...
