Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

1. AR10 in various flavors (any good ones?) -IMHO this is your best choice. A joy to shoot, great design, known manual of arms, great support. 2. G3 clones: zenith, PTR, Century, CETME? -I am a huge HK fanboi and I still hate these. They are just goofy and awkward. 3. The new Tavor 7 -No idea but h...

Re: Ultimate ZS Battle/Scout Belt Thread

Anyone care to compare and contrast the SafariLand UBL Mid-ride attachment and the Bladetech DOH? I think the chief difference is that the DOH angles the pistol out. Is this a great, unimportant, bad or terrible idea for a battlebelt? If it matters it is for a Glock (No safety).

I'm not a fireman or anything but I've had the sad opportunity to see a few houses burn down. For me, the most notable thing was how quiet they were.

I can't fly one, the local airport probably doesn't have a hangar I could use and the storage fees would be nuts.
You should call your local airport and ask. I'm sure for that for a reasonable fee, they could provide lessons and hanger space.

The only advice I'm seeing to avoid this after going into a lake, is to avoid licking yourself and shower immediately. I guess this means letting dogs into a lake isn't a great idea.
