Re: Don't lose your cool

I have experienced 2 break failures when driving. first time I half kept my wits about me. when the peddle hit the floor, I was able to pull into a parking lot, that ran parallel to the road. I stamp on the parking break, that will do the trick, but no it did nothing. then I slapped the car into par...

Re: Feels like it’s time to start stocking the caches...

Anyone considering selling some of their stores right now? Prices are unreal...I’m seriously thinking of cashing out a big chunk to build a detached garage with a small 1 bedroom guest house at our new place that’s nicer and on more land, but a lot smaller than our old house. I’d consider using it ...

I am planning on doing a lightweight build in a WWSD lower, but I have to say that your commitment to the light weight is impressive.

Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

Ordered a peep sight from Steve's Guns for my Rossi 92. The older I get, the more I like peep sights, hopefully this will work well. I love the Rossi rifles for being handy, but they don't lend well to optic mounting. I look forward to a range report, I don't like the open sights on my Rossi, but n...

Re: multitool

My problem with multitools is that the majority of their owners only carry one. Why is that bad? Okay, hold the nut and tighten the screw at the same time. You can do one or the other, not both. That's the issue, you often need to use two tools at the same time, but if you only have the one you're ...

Re: 80% AR Lower

interesting, apparently you can legally sell the 80% lower, just not with the rest of the parts?
another case of "it's legal till we don't like it"? can't wait to see how that plays out in court.

Re: 80% AR Lower

the polymer lower I bought back in 2012 (complete, not 80%) would not run well for me. the polymer allowed enough flex in the alignment of the buffer tube that the bolt would not return to battery after each shot till I loosened my grip on the rifle. I cant recommend any polymer lower that is in the...
