Re: my plan... ok make fun of me

Well you asked for opinions so..... Get two Glock 19's. While I don't have any real Glock love we have his and hers G19's here. We got them cause the Mrs. likes to shoot them (real important bit that) and we shoot them a lot. No malfunctions and easy as heck to take down. Very reliable and reliabili...

Re: Going back in any part of history. With 2 guns and a pac

I'd take a Glock 19 and an M1A and head back to 1772. My bag would be half full of gold and the other half would be penicillin, some medical books and equipment and a history book. I'd spend my time sniping off high ranking Brits. Telling Washington where the brits are and investing. After 1776 I'd ...

Re: Digging out my crawl space...

To be the other side of the coin... When I was a kid the neighbor ran some load bearing steel underneath his house and made a buttress to carry the load. He then cut a hole in his dinning room floor and dug out a basement. He poured a concrete floor and bricked up the walls and relocated the entranc...

Re: Glock 19 reviews please

The Glock 19 is about as exciting and enjoyable as a bic lighter. And like a bic lighter it will always function and it won't let you down. It's reliable and accurate. Even though I am a Colt ACP junkie the Mrs and I both have G19's as our go to pistol for HD and range fun. We also have AK 47s and W...

Re: A couple AK related questions.

The Russian military teaches holding the mag as a forward grip and it works great holding the muzzle on target. For reasons that I am sure you can appreciate doing things "because the Russian military does them" is not a recipe for success. That said I find the normal handguard to be perfectly fine...

Assuming the gun is reliable. I'd go ahead and get it. Cheap price and 50 round mags. You'd have a lot of fun for the money.

It is accurate enough to hunt with. With the magazine out it can fit anywhere and they are easy to carry in the field. Th...

The only real problem I see with bugging out to Catalina is supplies and water.

Other than that take what others have suggested and plan accordingly.
