Re: A present for my wife ...

This is a fortuitous thread. I'm curious about a light rifle for my wife *and* there is discussion about Henry rifles in this thread. I was thinking that the Henry AR-7 would be suitable for her. https://www.henryusa.com/rifles/u-s-survival-ar-7/ Light, compact, maximum effective range is appropria...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

One can hope! That's the main reason I keep a .40 cal around, for those times that cheap police and alphabet agency surplus ammo hits the market. And agencies have been stocking up in record numbers in recent years, it would be nice for shooters if police get defunded and have to sell some of that ...

Re: A present for my wife ...

I second the recommendation of a Henry .22 leaver gun. I believe that the .22s are all loaded through the end of the tube. other calibers have side loading gates, but you cant go wrong with Henry. [also don't work for Henry, but they come with the smoothest leaver actions of my 4 manufactures go lea...

The phantom shifter was a good story, to be sure.

Re: Into the Wild bus finally removed!

I'd written several times suggesting just about this solution. I suggested they drop it at the parking lot at the trailhead. I am a big fan of monuments. I think they are useful in many ways. Some can be used to glorify events but the ones of which I am a particular fond, are monuments to stupidity...

Some guy on Reddit converted a Cricket into a little single-shot survival pistol . Pretty neat concept, I think. In an ideal world, I might try to find a way to make a less-bulky brace. This is almost screaming for a little pic strip on the back to attach to, instead of a fixed faux-AR buffer tube....

I haven't sold any of my guns to the store, but I have put some on consignment. 3/4 worked out well for me, the 4th just didn't sell, so I took it home after about 16 months. YMWV.

I wish manufacturers would stop making "state compliant" versions of popular firearms.

I had something odd happen today. maybe I am just cynical, but I wonder if they messed up on the pricing, and didn't want to let it go that cheap, so they threw in a few road blocks. then again I haven't bought a gun from Bass Pro since the gun counter manager threw a fit about me putting a line th...

Re: I am looking for an ALICE ammo pouch tin

if the pouch is on a belt, add a canteen with canteen cup to it.
if not on a belt, still use the canteen cup, just clip the two together.

I'm sorry to not answer the question you are asking, but a far better way is to stock enough commonly available (and far cheaper) ammunition during normal times that you don't even notice periods of low supply....

Looking into a new pistol

I am thinking about picking up a pistol that can use some of the odd ball ammo that is more available in strange times. I would like it to be chambered in 10mm (cause I don’t have one, and I really should), but have a .40 S&W barrel available, and possibly a .357 sig as well. I prefer an 18 degree g...
