Re: Learning to hunt

Not sure your area, but if you look into a sportsman's or gun club, they will have people and resources to try out. Even if there is an application or meetings or fees or sponsorship stipulations, if you call and explain your situation, most places will work with you. I live in North Georgia, close...

Re: Learning to hunt

Hello longtime lurker, 1st time poster. I have always wanted to learn how to hunt and learn how to provide meat for myself and my family, but I really have no idea what to do. No one in my family hunts and I really dont know of any resources for first timers like me. My state does provide a Learn T...

Re: Sig M17 or M18?

My bias: I've had 2 Glock builds. I sold both shortly after building. The ergonomics are dog shit on them. Slightly better if you swap out half the gun for a new aftermarket lower. But then why buy one to replace everything? The aftermarket is hugeeeeee which is great for someone like me who tinker...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

My wife and I were talking about the new rifle purchase. She noticed that she suddenly sees new faces and subjects in the videos I watch. She has concluded that I don't actually buy guns because I need the gun. Rather, I get bored watching a certain cast of video makers so I buy a new gun to have t...

Re: Looking into a new pistol

My first thought is the ole EAA Witness large frame. Can swap slides for everything from 38 super to 45 ACP. Not sure about 357 sig though. And it will be pricey to get parts for that you might as well just buy 2 guns. If I wanted a 10mm, I'd go EAA or Springfield. I considered a police trade SIG 22...

Re: Losing your job, all your preps, and how to bounce back.

Excellent post and congrats on the progress!! One thing that's kinda of topic. If your wife still wants to go back to school, make sure she makes it a priority soon. So many have dreams, get side tracked, and never do it. Having said that, skip on LPN. It's kinda of a mean joke amongst CNAs that the...

Went to a blood drive today at the local Cabela's. Decided to run in really quick and get some gear for spring that I needed (life jacket). Didn't want to go in, but it is what it is. Place was deserted. Except for the mob at the gun and ammo section. And it was a mob. As far as handgun ammo, only t...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Why don't you like hammer fired? I'm not saying you're wrong, I'd like to know because I've never owned a SxS and only ever shot one once. The main thing is I want to be able to choose which barrel to fire, and I want that process to be very intuitive without having to slow down to figure it out. N...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Hmmm, I don't own a label maker but I do have half a roll of labels around here somewhere. I like the electrical tape idea. It probably wouldn't stick on that great but I imagine I'd be able to peel it off and clean it pretty easily. I've only got black electrical tape but my paint pen over top of ...

Label makers with outdoor rated label tapes included are fairly cheap. The last one I bought was a pretty fancy one and came with 4 tapes for something like $30 at Costco and a quick glance at Amazon shows at least one for that price.
He's gonna need that shotgun if he's venturing to Costco haha

Well, it appears Cheaper Than Dirt has shot themselves in the ass again. I guess they didn't learn anything after the Sandy Hook panic.

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

I don't know if the run on .22lr was artificial ... The market had pumped out a .22 conversion or analogue for every popular center fire for 2-3 years minimum prior to Sandy Hook. A week later there was paranoia about legislation coming to grab guns and restrict ammo purchases. Everyone bought ammo...

Good news about this is my "anti-gun" family is asking me for advice on this pandemic situation as they are freaking out... Nothing like emotional/fear driven changes of heart
