Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

A close friend of mine did the same thing, with the same pistol. We have been looking for his pistol for just about three years. 400+ acres is a very large search area, at least he lost it somewhere on his property. :rofl: :clap: :rofl: Your buddy must've cut the flap OFF! :twisted: I did not; just...

Does anyone have a Romanian PSL?

If so what are your thoughts/hands on experience?

Re: What is your favorite bullpup rifle?

While I have a nice AUG, my son has a Tavor and I'm considering purchasing one. About the only complaint on the AUG, I have is that the forward sling swivel is in a really awkward location, and I just do not like single point slings.

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

Here is a 1942 hip holster that I was issued while I was active duty. Imho I would rather have it in brown, instead of black.

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

No, that holster is for my civilian 1946 Colt 1911, the first new firearm my Grandfather purchased. The Army issued that to me, and then told me I needed to dye it black. I could not do it, so I did a LOD and paid the army for it. There is another one dyed black on the shelf above it, breaks my hea...

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

Laager, is that brown holster in the last pic the one you mentioned in the "My Job, My Hell" thread ? The Nambu I believe it was ? On topic, I picked up two 33 round Glock factory mags and a pair of ETS 41 round mags before Christmas. So with the addition of those four mags, I'm up to 15 mags total...

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

I bought a little combination lockbox for keys that bolts into a wall. Mounted it in an out of sight but easily accessible spot by the gun cabinet to hold the keys. Makes it a lot easier to access things, and any tools able to cut into it would also be able to cut into the gun cabinet. So it's more...

Re: How many mags do you consider "enough" for each gun?

the Mrs. asked about magazines---do we have enough. so I had to do an inventory---not as many as I thought back when there was ammo, we went to the range monthly, it was nice to have 4 or more loaded mags for rifles so we could shoot without reloading every 5 minutes At least 2 for our EDC pistols ...

Re: Reloading Components

I don't roll my own ammo, but I've got about twenty or so .45 ACP cases I've kept for awhile. It's all once fired brass, not range floor pick ups. I had planned on getting some epoxy resin from Hobby Lobby and making a paperweight with it, but I figure it's more valuable as brass than a paperweight...

Anyone use HexMags in their AR ? My two go-to shops started carrying them and I'm considering picking up a few of them, but I have no idea if they're any good or not. I mostly stock Pmags for my AR, but those are kind of a pain to find in my AO at the moment. I can find ProMag and MFT AR mags all d...

So, the bill is signed and the checks will eventually go out, what are your plans for yours? Knowing this crowd I suspect a lot of that cash is going to be plowed back into replacing depleted supplies (as best as possible) and expending existing preps but let's hear some specifics.

Just saw this thread was active again...nice!

Yes. That has been a very hard reality all over America. Reloading components started drying up in July, 2020. Reloading components are about as valuable as actual ammo.

Had anyone else noticed or experienced a shortage in reloading components as well as ammunition?

Good ones run around a grand I went with the PTR91, mainly because of the ammo compatibility and the cheap as heck mags. Now I am on the prowl ...
