Re: Hey Vegas, I'm comin' for ya ... What to do?

I'll post an update on this thread in the near future. We ended up shooting at "Shoot Las Vegas", which was fun, but had some negative aspects I'll comment on later. We did the big Ferris wheel ("the link") and the roller coaster in New York, New York (possibly my favourite roller coaster ever; it w...

How much length does a breacher choke add?

So I'm sending my 12" 870 in for choke threading and cerakote. I want to add a breacher choke to the end of the barrel and extend the mag tube to the same length, less an integral qd sling attachment. I've built the tube already, extra long. I just need to cut off the excess and rethread it to the d...

Re: Weatherproof Wilderness First Response Kit - pelican style?

For something that you likely to just fit in your car or bug out location it would fit the bill perfectly. Their brand is called Apache. We don't have H...

Weatherproof Wilderness First Response Kit - pelican style?

I'm starting to compile items to stock a basecamp first aid kit to be used on property I acquired in December. The property is off the beaten path, may take a while to get emergency medical attention, so the kit will need to be fairly comprehensive. Should be built to care for 2-6 people. There's cu...

The land is solid coniferous forest with 110 yard frontage on a municipal road allowance, about 3/4 of a mile south of the maintained road. About a mile from two separate lakes in opposite directions. The neighbouri...

Here's the problem with EMP prepping: no one knows anything. The "experts" say a lot of different things. Some say a solid steel box is the only option, some say plug everything into grounded surge protectors and you'll be fine. But are they talking about an atmospheric nuclear EMP or a solar flare ...

You never really stated your purpose for it but it seems to me like a Chiappa mares leg in .357 might be right for you.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.
But do I want a standard variety Mare's Leg, or a takedown version?!

I'm looking at a Chiappa mares leg in .357, and while a lot can be done with a solid 586 (686), or GP100, they don't fit my needs (in Canada). Lots of great options out there f...

I've been eyeing a Mare's leg variety gun for a while now. I keep coming back to the Chiappa take down selection ... a take down rifle has some advantages, especially in the packability department. But moving parts ... move? Who's got experience with take down firearms, and what are some things to b...

So I just got the Warrior/Emerald lever action in the mail today. Very pleased initially. Despite a rather rough action, I think it has potential. It's actually very closely based off an 870, which I'm very happy about, because that's the shotgun platform I'm most invested in already. Pictured here ...

FTFY. Thanks. Is that "Warrior" shotgun the same as the Adler lever shotgun that the Australians get ?

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

That's pretty good halfapint. A lot of guys talk down about reloading for 9mm and .223, because of the availability of cheap/surplus ammo. But your recipe sounds like a sweet spot.
