Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Hmm...I didn't know they'd come out with something smaller than C version in double stack. Learn something new every day. I'm either carrying a full size, because my wardrobe and the weather allow it, or a Shield because it's hot. There is also the Pro or L version - full size frame with the 5" barr...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Looks like Smith and Wesson released a M&P 2.0 Subcompact... basically the old M&P9c but in 2.0 fashion... Color me interested. But people are mad it is not a SIG 365 or SA Hellcat competitor. I guess you can't please everyone The 2.0 is too big IMO. It is almost the same size as a full size. I ima...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

There was a time in this country where shooting a fleeing burglar in the back was frowned upon but accepted. That time has passed. May depend on local law. There are provisions in the Texas code where, if someone is fleeing with your property, you may use the level of force necessary to recover/pre...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

But it ceased being a standard issue front line combat rifle for the ground services ~1968. Unless you were in the brown water Navy in Vietnam, those rifles in the arms locker on the USS Whatever were not really combat weapons anymore.

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

I'm not sure where you're getting that 1958-1968 date from but I don't think it's correct, based on the fact that my command was issued M14 rifles in March of 1975, most Navy ships still have a number of them in the ship's armory, and they're still in limited use as designated marksman rifles today...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

The Army (and probably the Marines) did pull a lot of them out of storage during the GWOT because of the need for something with better power at range than the M-16 or M-4, and the M-14s were available NOW, without having to go through even SOCOMs abbreviated procurement channels. They have since be...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

Thoughts on the actual battle rifles in the bunch, or the NATO ones at least: M-14: there are good reasons that the U.S. military is the only ones to have ever actually bought M-14s (the only other countries that used them got them for free from Uncle Sugar), and that the M-14 had the shortest servi...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I just moved into the AR-10/.308 realm. Aero 18" upper on an Alex Pro Fab lower (which has been sitting in my safe since just before the 2016 election). Only got iron sights for now, until I get $$$ for a suitable optic. I got the Aero upper as part of a package deal on sale with BCG and CH. The CH ...

Re: The Coming Civil War

Smith had risen to the level of private first class infantry soldier since joining the Army in June 2017. Cream of the crop that one.... On August 19, Smith unwittingly spoke with an undercover FBI agent online and told him he was hoping to meet like-minded “radicals” and aspired to kill members of...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

They lost the .mil M16 and M4 contracts to FN-USA, who operates out of SC, a lower cost (and gun friendly) location, with a newer plant, probably a younger work force, and almost certainly none of the retiree expenses that Colt has.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

A big part of why the XM8 died was that the Army tried to get cute and sidestep the bid solicitation process for a new rifle/carbine. HK got the R&D cntract for the OICW. What became the XM8 was originally the carbine part of that whole system, which the Army had HK develop separately when it became...

AAI Corporation/Textron Systems in Hunt Valley, Maryland; General Dynamics-OTS Inc. in Williston, Vermont; and Sig Sauer in Newington, New Hampshire.
One of the not-SiG teams will be using the cased telescoping ammo. Can't recall which it is off the top of my head.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

" illegally manufactured and sold" I'm going to guess it involved an 80% or some other sort of homebuilt lower with no serial #. You can home build all you want for personal use, but you can't sell the resulting firearms. And you can't manufacture any guns for sale without an 07 FFL. And anything yo...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I have an AR project. Not going for any specific use, the sole purpose is to be the most 'triggering' AR-15 I can manage to build. The criteria I have chosen as 'triggering' are this: how many AWB features can I manage to stick on a single rifle? So far, I have the lower pretty well sorted out. I ha...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

About the only thing I buy there is my kids' underwear. And car batteries.

I may go see if they have any WWB .308 when my AR-10 upper gets here. But only because Academy is like 12 miles away and WalMart is on my way to and from the gym.
