Re: Preps for a Contested Election in November

My mom called me before I had my morning* coffee to tell me that "roughians" had taken over the capitol, but because I was tired and didn't have a great signal I misheard her as saying "Russians" and I was getting pretty confused and alarmed when she kept insisting that she was serious and not fucki...

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

Butchered a little potbelly boar today. Hopefully we weren't too late to keep him from knocking up the sows, but I suspect we might have been.

Re: What are you playing?

I downloaded and tried to play Skyrim again. It just didn't grab me. It might be the super long intro/tutorial part taking the wind out of my sails. That was a problem with their Fallout games. First time through it is great, but by the third time it is torture. I might try again in another couple w...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

I've never bought a pistol brace, partly because I figured that eventually ATF was going to come down on them and I didn't want to deal with the hassle when they did. Maybe if braces and other things that skirt the rules survive for a few more years I'll get the "firearm" version of the 590M and put...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

The guy I bought the Rolling Block from said that he never had a smith check it out but he had been shooting mild hand loads through it with no sign of trouble on the cases.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

For some reason I thought that prices had dropped to something like $30/50, but I haven't been paying attention so I must be mistaken. I was exaggerating, of course, but going price is $2 a round, or $100 / 50. There was a time you could find it in that $25 - $30 a box range, but it tends to rise a...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

The leaked picture of the Keltec P50 looks interesting. I probably won't get one even if the reviews are good, but I could see it being pretty entertaining. Reminds me a bit of the AR-57 design. It's a shame nobody picked up that design and started making those again. Of course, what does 5.7 ammo ...

Have you asked the seller/previous owner if the headspace has been checked?
I haven't, but that's a good idea. I don't why I hadn't considered that.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

Yeah, I should probably have a gunsmith check it out. Do you know how much that normally costs? The thing that gets me isn't the expense, but that having a smith check it out would probably mean two additional trips to town. Going to town takes up most of a day. I might check to see if my FFL has a ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [2020 - Year of the Squib]

I won an auction on a Remington Rolling Block in 7mm Mauser yesterday. I'm pretty excited, as I had seen a number of videos about it and I have a thing for single shots. I'm not actually sure which specific model, year or country it was sold to yet. The seller had a ton of positive reviews though, a...

Re: Quazi's self-sufficiency projects

Sorry for not updating the thread. I wanted to do a big end-of-season update, but I started working two on-call jobs right about that time and it was running me ragged. Thankfully I've transitioned to more regular employment, but not until everything was snowed under so I didn't get any pics. We har...

I do know they pissed off a lot of people with gouging back in the day, if it is affiliated. But, other local-ish shops are Eagle River Gun Cache and Alaska Downra...

I had been giving away loaded magazines as gifts when I forgot birthdays, Christmas, Father's Day, etc. for years, so when Brownells sent an email about Magpul mags being on sale I bought a 10-pack to restock myself. A couple Glock 10mm mags as well. You have never given me a single birthday mag, U...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I have been interested in a lever action as a fun gun for a while, but they are spendy enough that I have a hard time justifying them to myself. Some day.

If I were to get a Mare's Leg style lever gun I think I'd like to get a Henry Axe.

I put a Ruger Mk IV Target on order today. The stainless model with the threaded barrel. I was thinking about getting a lightweight version or one of the Pac-Lite uppers, but I figure even a lightened Mk IV is heavier than many other polymer .22 handguns, so I think I'll just get one of those down t...

I liked the H&R single shots, and would be happy to see them come back. I like single shots in general for some reason. I had been eyeing a 20 gauge single shot that was on consignment for the better part of a year, that interested me because it was a little different than normal, but I told myself ...

Townsends have a lot of good cooking videos. I guess I missed that one. We pulled all the green tomatoes in a while back to ripen inside since it is getting frosty at night.

Just a note, you may already be aware though: you can basically sub mashed potatoes for one part in three flour when making bread.
