Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Quick note I found out while shooting yesterday. Do not, under any circumstance buy cheap off brand AR Pmags. They are garbage and should never be purchased. Plinker arms bad

That is all

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

My backyard range is a little over 300 yards. The property is 155 acres, but its rolling land, so there aren't many flat stretches of ground. There's a flat spot where you can shoot out to 500 yards along a powerline ROW on the west side property line, but I only shoot there on rare occasions. Drea...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Your shooting pit sounds a lot like the old gravel pit near my cousins place. I can go shoot there any time so long as I give my cousin a heads up. It's a little limited on range, but it's good enough for pistols and shotguns. Rifles are bit different, but it's not like I'm doing any precision shoo...

This is actually how we did it in the military. You had your: - A Bag - Extra footwear, more toilet items, clothes for a week (more like a month in the Army but actually a weeek's worth) - B Bag - Stuff more for a garrison style camp like a tent, non- seasonal clothes you might need later like a he...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

Haven't taken my 300bo out in ages, and had some old stock I wanted to rotate out. I forgot how much that thing hurts to shoot supers out of. I've got the KAK brace on it and it is in no way a gun you want to shoot 10+ mags through in one sitting. I'm no bruised but my shoulder meat is not happy wit...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Took some of my old stock of 300bo out and shot a over 300rds. I reloaded these back when I was using a single stage press and some of them when I was using a turret press. They were all over the place with the COL (still within specs and I under charged them so they weren't over pressured or compac...

Re: On you at all times BOB? What do you keep on you?

What you're thinking of is EDC (Every Day Carry). I used to work at a major airport and I carried a "TSA" approved EDC BOB. this was something I could carry through TSA that had everything I needed to get me home or even a bad winter storm where I couldn't get out for a couple days. I had 2 1.5l wat...

Re: Noob 1st bag question: big new or supplement?

I wish I read this before your bag post. A 75l is a big bag but pretty damn good, depending on what/where you are hiking to 2-4 days is ideal. If you work at home, and live where you work I don’t see why you’d want to have a big bag to keep in your car. Maybe keep some cheap stuff in your car. A HF ...

Re: Which of these 2 bags would you pick?

The first has tiny little straps that with any Weight will hurt. The second had garbage suspension and a terrible design. I spent some money on an “assault pack” and it was money not worth spent. In all honesty a “cheap” backpack from any outdoor store is going to be immensely better. I think REI ha...

Unfortunatly this is the reality of millions in south east asia, middle east, and else where. Best tactic is to avoid them. Next best would be to ID, mark, and let the experts should there be any deal with them.
