Re: The Ongoing Man Made Opiod Catastrophe

Remington was pushing (marketing) their rifle, and they had to know that someone would turn one on the innocent. Nope you are missing the point. The crux of the lawsuit was that they did know that the drugs were being improperly prescribed and abused but did not care because they were getting truck...

Re: Buying emergency water from Amazon

cheap prep idea, find apps for you phone to allow you to access what you think you might need in an emergency, just make sure that they run on the device, and don't rely on the network for storage.

Re: AR-15 FTF Issue

I would think a worn out buffer spring would give you issues with it not going fully into battery, not problems picking up the next round. as boskone mentioned, it could be ammo related, if it is a different ammo from before, or there maybe something impleading the amount to gas being delivered to t...

Re: Cell Service

Most of the cell towers in our service territory have either a battery bank back-up system or a propane generator, for when there is a power disruption. I'm not 100%, but I think the battery back-ups are good for around 24 hours of operation, while the ones with gennies can operate for three days o...

Now .500 S&W is a totally different beast. No way in hell would I fire one off in a revolver.

This is the problem with arguing for any sort of research into vaccines. I'm not saying take vaccines out of society tomorrow.

Re: anybody know why Southern Ohio Guns has no guns for sale?

SOG had been dealer only for a while. I remember trying to order form them, and being told no.
I had to stop by my LGS and they ordered it, using my CC. that had to be ten or more years ago (and I still miss that LGS).

Grabagun has decent deals, and I haven't had any problems with them.
