Re: Vortex optics

I have a Vortex Viper 6-24x50. I've had it for about three years. It replaced a ~15 year old Springfield Armory scope. Nothing has broken. I have heard mixed things about Vortex scopes but I love mine. The glass is a lot more clear and bright. the reticle is great. The controls are easy to see and u...

What would be the response if they dog piled on the officer and got his pistol? Not likely but possible.

Do these count as AKs? I think they're dreamy...

I was shocked by how much I enjoyed Infinity War (Obligatory: Thanos was right!). This one should be fantastic.

Re: *@!$ Snakes!

Evan,

You sound like a guy who knows his way around a snake! Can you answer a question that has been a mystery to me for several weeks? How do you distinguish a corn snake from a king snake (Let's ignore hybrids for the moment)? Is it just the colors and patterns or are there other features?

Thanks!

Re: *@!$ Snakes!

Remember, snakes have a very low metabolism so you can skip feeding them for two-four weeks. Roger! A word of caution, I was leaving for a trip to Europe for several weeks, so I fed my almost 5' corn snake three adult thawed mice. He ate them happily, then about an hour before leaving I looked in i...

Re: *@!$ Snakes!

Nope. Not trolling. I definitely wouldn't eat them (at least not until the bitterest of ends). We have an 11 week old corn snake and a 7 week old king snake. They're both about 15 inches long and live in their own 18x18x36 enclosures. They require water, heat, light and a baby mouse every five days....

Re: Nearly a Billion Dead in Viral Weapon Simulation

Something I've often wondered and this thread seems appropriate... I've heard that the most likely point of infection (I'm sure there's a cooler and fancier term for this like vector or something) are our eyes. I suspect this is why hand-washing is so encouraged. If we're to the point where masks ar...

2. What will the new connector do? Is that really necessary?
Holyguacamolepepperonipizzapie! OMFG! I wish I'd known what this would do.

I got a Ghost connector on my Gen4 G19 and it has completely transformed it. The ski jump at the end is gone. Now it is a nice and fairly linear pull.

I'm no expert but I could see AR-15 lowers being made this way. Besides a goofy single shot, has anyone designed a modern 3-d printed firearm?

I think the question should be, do you like Glock finger grooves or do you dislike Glock finger grooves? I have skinny fingers and like the grooves, so I am not interested in the Gen 5 pistols at all. Editing to add two points about your planned upgrades: 1. I would encourage you to take a look at T...

Been quite lately. I'm looking for advice on a CCW holster. Last time asked I got some good advice, such as "appendix carry has been shooting people's nuts off lately." Which kinda grabs a man's attention. Normally I don't worry about targets that small, but lately I've been rethinking that. So wit...
