Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

After I went to the range recently (shooting my Mini-14) I got back and realized I have more 30/40 Krag and 8x56 Hungarian than I do 5.56/.223 (only 120 rounds left) :shock: . I can't find it anywhere (unless I want to buy 500 rounds of steel cased, which I don't ). The only thing for sale around he...

Re: An Increase in Violent Street Crime

You didn't say whether it was day time or night. That bit of info would change my answer. Daytime-walk to the nearest gun store. Here me out, no one robs a gun store during the day(it's suicide) you can calmly state you were robbed at gunpoint. I guarantee there will be several employees and patrons...

Re: Do you like old guns but are interested in an AR?

Also, can't prove it but it looks to me like the stainless with the Beta mag may be in 7.62*51 not 556 based on the size of the magwell.

Re: Do you like old guns but are interested in an AR?

I guess I should let you in on a secret. Springfield (the old one not the new one) is probably the maker of pic #2. I can't verify it but there were these type of rifles sold by old Springfield in the 60's. I have seen ads in old gun magazines. They were hoping to sell them as a hunting rifle hence ...

Do you like old guns but are interested in an AR?

I don't own an AR but have thought about getting one. I generally prefer older guns not only due to history but also because I prefer wood over plastic. I give you the All American Gun stocks option.

Welcome to the site!
You can get great free maps from your state website for instance for me go to TN.gov and if you dont like those search a nearby states website a lot of times they also include the surrounding states.

What's the antique pistol? Selling guns today. One went to a local gun store. One will go on GunBroker. One will likely be a private sale. One may or may not get sold (an antique and best to sell online but pistol sales are tough due to FFLs being reluctant to ship your pistol). The shotgun went to ...

1898 Springfield Krag Jorgenson in 30-40 Krag along with 40 rounds of Hornady ammo. It's been sporterized but only with a Fajer walnut stock. The rear sight needs some work and for some reason the safety won't engage but these are small issues to fix. It's got the the Dickson sight which I think the...

Re: The Witcher

I plan to watch it. I have read a couple of the books in the series and they were pretty good. The guy who wrote it is Polish and was born in 1948. I don't know why I found that interesting but I did. I guess there aren't a lot of books I know of set in a mythical med-evil Polish like society.

Well I have no experience with either but if we are fighting the undead I will take a Kukri. The Katana is very cool but it seems to me you need a lot of hard earned skill to use.

Well, you wake up from a coma in the active ZPAW. Your primary arm isn't working and the people who rescued you from the Nursing Home are keen for you to earn your keep. They judge you as basically cannon fodder and give you these options for weapons in a front line defense role. Remember these are ...
