Re: ZS Elder Squad

47. grew up in northern WV with a .22 rifle as my favorite toy. GI Joe was a foot tall and came in soldiers of the world uniforms. saw the star wars premier in St. Augustine Fla with 32 other people, then went outside and bought taco's at the 400 year celebration.

Re: silcock key v. Wave?

keys that are designed for the stationary environment, that is meant to be part of an installation are DESIGNED to be large so they are very easy to use and can't be easily lost. big by very design, those designed to be used and carried by professionals are small and portable for a reason!

Re: silcock key v. Wave?

i feel that it's in your best interest not to damage the valve, you might need to come back and drink again, somebody else might need it, hell it could be as simple as the emergency is just a temporary one and not teotwawki and you don't want to damage somebody Else's property. you might even cause ...

Re: silcock key v. Wave?

my 4 way is very small, it's about the size of a pocket watch and weighs very little. i got it at our local hardware store and it's actually so small i would have to use my multi tool for leverage if the valve were sticky.

Re: silcock key v. Wave?

i have several gerbers in a box. i don't like tools that bite when you use them the RIGHT way. leatherman tools have different steels depending on the tool model. i like the spirit and the SOG tools. i have one that i customized by removing the C4 spike and knife blades and replacing them with other...

Re: silcock key v. Wave?

he's absolutely right, i never meant to suggest you not carry a multitool. i like the wave, as well as the victorinox spirit. the new and old style wave's are great tools and not too heavy. the new wave has the option of adapters to use the bit kit, which i recommend. the old model is more self cont...

Re: Romanian TT33

I've picked up several extras, aim surp has some for around $20 IIRC. i also bought some from a fellow in Poland that i know from another board. he also got me a couple variations of military and police holsters for mine. I'm pretty heavily invested in 9x18!

the ones I've handled were nice pistols, they aren't standard tok mags though! workmanship was good and the guns shot well and were accurate for what they were. i really enjoy shooting these and maks.

Re: CTD Korean g17 mag deal

i would probably be hesitant to use them for daily carry,although i haven't had any failures with mine yet. i also have some 33 round ones i use in my sub rifle, they also operate flawlessly. i got the 33 rounders on a trade as a kicker and was happily surprised, mush superior to the older scherer o...

Re: CTD Korean g17 mag deal

i would have to agree with dave, although i haven't had any stoppages with mine yet.

i understand about the velcro, but they are still not secure. they may as well have left off the velcro for what it's worth. one of the pouche pockets is actually sewn a little shorter than the other one!

Re: "US rifles not suited to warfare in Afghan hills"

he he, true.


the Ameli isn't a scaled down MG42 [MG3 actually], it just looks like one externally. the reliability problems were solved with an upgrade kit by Santa Barbara. it's really more like an HK21 or model L. i believe that some of the Model L parts are actually interchangeable.

Re: "US rifles not suited to warfare in Afghan hills"

Our people did sign the treaties, but they were never ratified and so by US law do not apply. we comply with these treaties as an article of policy and of course politics!
