Re: WTF Rifle of the Month *Open to all kinds of guns now*

My point is that you called the Tommy AR an SMG, but by your very definition, it's not. Go back and reread the original post - I didn't claim the ARTM was an SMG. One more for posterity - The Bacon single shot .30 http://www.collectorsfirearms.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/900x500/9df78ea...

Re: WTF Rifle of the Month *Open to all kinds of guns now*

It's not just the receiver. A weapon that fires pistol caliber ammunition (including semis) from an open bolt that can be "easily" converted is considered an SMG by ATF. T Seen a lot of open bolt ARs? Jamoni nice try at sniping. The OP stated "I wasn't aware we had any laws that defined an SMG as o...

Re: WTF Rifle of the Month *Open to all kinds of guns now*

A picatiny and optics don't change a SMG to an AR do they? You're usin' prison rules now, huh Rick. Where's the magwell? Is that pre-ban? Can you add a DIAS? I wasn't aware we had any laws that defined an SMG as opposed to a rifle, pistol, SBR or AOW. Is any pistol-caliber carbine considered a semi...

Re: The Crovel EXTREME...Reviewing the beast!

I have to say it is mildly interesting, but realisticaly the Truckers Friend Axe is a better multi tool in my oppinion and less than half the cost. It is also American made and from the looks of the funcky Crovel design the Truckers Friend is much more user friendly as well. Another vote for this o...

Re: DelTon

You can't go wrong with PSA. That being said PSA's receiver are made by Aero Precision. Del-tons are made by CMT which has made uppers and lowers for a lot of companies - some higher end but nonetheless still made on the same tooling out of the same material.

Re: Can you have too many guns?

Regular Guy makes the absolute best case and I totally agree with it - once you have the basics work on your other preps. You don't necessarily have to neglect firearms purchases but instead of buying more guns put that cash into spare parts, ammo, and some training and range time. When I buy ammo o...

To generalize: People fear what they don't understand. Old dudes (particularly veteran old dudes who have seen people get shot IRL) don't really get modern videogames.

Re: "Walking Dead" Cable Series

We'll probably never know unless the dead really do rise. Examples in nature are rare, but I'll concede that they do happen. The example of rats trying to escape rising water works in a panic, flee or die situation... but does it work when they're hungry and trying to get to food? Whether the dead ...

You sure that's an HP and not a BDM? I'm also starting to think that silenced pistol Carl has in the pic may just be a BDA or some Hollywood flash powder concoction.

I grew up with PS mags (dad brought them home and gave em to us) and some years ago when I was TDY at Redstone I stumbled across the LOGSA office that publishes the mag and talked to Stuart Henderson the production manager for a half hour - he's pretty well versed on the history of the mag as well a...

The G1 to G3 story has a little interesting twist to it that is a bit more political than contractual in nature.

Re: Question About Rifle Length

The federal guideline is fully extended unless it's detachable. For that type of stock it gets measured unfolded and with the buttplate in the last locking position. Even if the butt plate for an carbine type stock can come completely off the end of the buffer tube it's measured in the last locking ...
