Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Rifle ammo definitely costs more to reload, but compared to obscure caliber, match grade ammunition, the savings are there. I can reload .38 for a third of the price of factory, and I doubt I spent $500 to start between a turret press, dies, tumbler and media. I can make 100 rounds in an hour, that'...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

What's everyone using for a scale these days? I need something new, my cheap Hornady scale doesn't tare properly anymore.

Prefer something small and battery powered, but a 110V wouldn't be the end of the world.

Who's using what?

Re: WTB: ZS Flag

Very happy to fly the ZS flag when I'm out. The forums aren't the lively network they once were, but I'm still proud to be a member of this organization.

Thank you so much KJ4V0V.

Re: Sub2k or AR for 9mm

I too own a gen1 S2K and vote against it. It's too small frame for people over 5'9". Ive heard of the receiver issues, apparently gen2 may be improved. It has awkward, though simple controls. The bolt/cocking handle is a long motion for new shooters. I modified mine to lock to the left, so I could l...

Re: If an AR is not an option ... Tavor?

While the AUG is "prohibited" class (like most bullpups), and thus, doesn't work for me, I did mostly intend to revive the conversation since it hasn't come up for a while, and I think Tavor being the only new player (in the USA, Tavor have been "non-restricted in Canada for as long as I've been sho...

Re: If an AR is not an option ... Tavor?

Would the Beretta ARX count? It's my dream carbine. I like it more than the SCAR and ACR or Bren. But if that's not allowed, I wouldn't be afraid of a VZ58 at all. Or an SKS. I love me some good SKS strippers I don't think I've seen an ARX around, and google fu isn't bringing anything in. For clari...

Re: If an AR is not an option ... Tavor?

I assume that no variations of the AR (& AK) are permissible in any form. I am also wondering if a Tavor would be permitted. Accordingly I would chose either a Ruger Mini -14 or a Mini-30. I have used the Mini-14 in the past and especially like the SS versions for use in a maritime environment. The...

If an AR is not an option ... Tavor?

Decided this was a topic worth bringing up again outside of chat. If someone lived in an AR15 were not a legal bug out rifle, like Canada or large portions of the American North East, what would be your second choice? I have owned a VZ58 for several years now, but it will just never have the efficie...

Re: Upgraded the bear defense.

Followed your lead and bought a can of bear spray. Spending a few weekends in bear country, at east one will be backcountry camping in a provincial park where firearms are not an option. Bass Pro didn't have the holster in stock, so I'll have to shop around or DIY.

Re: Long gun options for bear defense

Thanks for the replies. Guess I could have given more details on the Bears. Black bear country, some distance from any sizeable town, and a good distance away from the nearest garbage dump (my friend says 30 minute drive, so estimated 40km). Garbage bears almost always stay at the garbage. Black bea...

WTB: ZS Flag

Looking to buy up to two ZS flags that are available in store.

I have not been able to process an order through the store, and am worried everyone at HQ is now a zombie. I am in need of a flag to fly at a local preppers networking weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

Trying to order a few pieces of merch, but after I log in, go to my cart and click "checkout", my browser just keeps reloading my cart. No notifications at the top of the page.

Mind if I ask why? Just curious, not challenging your opinion. Reviewers online seem to give negative opinions of all conversion kits.
