Re: Lefty Here...

The only time I have an issue is when I shoot .22LR out my AR. I'll get some powder occasionally then. Zero issues with the flying brass, though.

Re: Lefty Here...

I'm righthanded, left eye dominant. Rifles left, handguns right. Having taken tactical courses with my AR's, I ended up NOT going with a lefty AR. I like that I can pick up any AR and be able to handle it effectively without reaching for a lefthanded control that may not be there. Likewise, my famil...

Re: Looking for a pocket .22

When you're talking about a pocket gun, you're generally not talking about needing to stockpile thousands of rounds for it like you are for your main battle rifle. When the SHTF I'd be fine only having 500 rounds or less for a tiny pocket pistol. I'd much rather have a .380 in my pocket than a .22LR...

Re: Rant: Saiga Rifle Mania

I've never really understood the logic of having a Saiga in .308. That round is a nice "reach out and touch someone" from 200 yards kinda cartridge.... and a more expensive one, to boot. As the Saiga is based on the AK platform, it seems it's more of a "spray and pray" kind of gun. Now, I'm not sayi...

Re: Old Ithaca Shotgun

I may be talking out of my ass here, but if I recall correctly, certain Ithaca 37's have a habit of slamfiring.

Amateurs. Forget your crowbars, flashlights, etc.

Real men use the CMMG Strike Vortex Flash Suppressor on their AR's to break the glass out.

Sheesh!

Re: After I saw this Article I went and bought a Life Hammer

Punching out a window with the tip of your knife's blade is full of fail, and you'll probably get cut in the process. My EDC knife is below. It has a seat belt cutter and a pointy tip on the pommel for breaking glass. It works well, I used it about 5 times. http://blasterstool.com/ProductImages/SWFI...

You may never need to make that sort of a choice... I mean, things like that can be planned for, assistants hired, there's new tech out there that can apparently come in really handy. I really don't think it is such a black and white choice between "ruin your life or put your family member in a nur...

Re: Budget optic review(ish) Vortex Strikefire (with pics)

In terms of the arguments regarding red-dots vs. irons, it's an easy excerise in judgement for me. I have my SHTF gun set up with a red dot and fixed irons. I don't bother with flip downs, because in a combat situation you're going want them up, anyway. I have my red-dot set up for 1/3 cowitness. Wh...

I've had to bust out many a window at accidents... I wouldn't trust a crowbar or anything else that doesn't have a nice point to it to shatter the tempered side glass.

Quality replacement shoulder straps?

I'm searcing for quality replacement shoulder straps for my EDC Maratac bags. The straps they came with suck.

I like the curved, comfy straps you find on Maxpedition gear and on most quality messenger bags. Anyone know where I can get some good ones?

Only $33. They also have a slightly larger one.

I own both sizes, and use one as my EDC and the other as my range bag.

There is no magazine capacity limit. If I have a pre-ban AR lower, ie, one that was manufactured prior ...
