Re: What have you bought in the last 48 hours?(firearms related)

Lee trim guides for 10mm & .40 cal. Lee sizing dies .451 & .429. Lee 4 lb dip pot for annealing experiments. 1k 9x18 makarov brass. 20 ga Forster slug mold. & 1k CI 22 or ammo, (on clearance at Graf's). Dumb question: what do you mean by a Lee "trim guide"? Do you mean their case length gauges?

Re: Oto Melara R 2.5 Gorgona

Looks like the undercarriage at the extreme front and rear ends of the vehicle is designed to improve approach and departure angles. Both for that and for its amphibious capabilities. That's right! Clearly inspired by 007's amphibious Lotus Esprit: http://static.financialexpress.com/m-images/M_Id_4...

Re: good starter tool set for home and auto use ?

A decent socket wrench set is a lifetime investment that will pay for itself many times over if you're at all handy/mechanically inclined. I purchased a Craftsman SAE/metric set in the late 1980s when they probably were still American made. I was just a kid at the time, but to this day, I consider i...

Re: Deadly Indonesia Tsunami

This tsunami was apparently caused by an underwater landslide, rather than an earthquake. Although I doubt that distinction matters much to the many, many victims.

No affiliation but I was looking for a 100% wool blanket to actually cut up and make an Anorak.

Screw discussions about post apocalyptic ammo availability or discrepancies between line of sight and bore axis. Dental decay and how to prevent it truly is the key factor in surviving the zombie infestation.

Even those of us who stayed, or came back after the kids left home, the club memberships are gett...

Yes, I have a Ganzo. The Firebird G753 or something like that. G10 scales, axis lock and commendably sharp out of the box. Solid lockup and no discernible lateral play. I don't remember how much I paid, but it must have been around $10 on special from Gearbest. Perhaps my standards are lower than so...

the "London Riots" proved differently. at least this side of the pond anyway.
I wasn't aware the London Riots were in response to a disaster. I thought they were due to social, political and racial tensions. If so, we really shouldn't be talking about that incident here on a disaster forum.

This way, it was like a bear spray grenade, cleverly disguised as an " accident ". If they were as devilishly smart and autonomous as you have written w...
