Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I am surprised no one seems to be talking about the possibillity (Very strong likelyhood) that the protests and riots are being actively encuraged by Russia who are really good at "influence operations"... They (and putin) have a vested interest in making USA as weak as possible, and if you are to ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

From the looks of some of the mags, at least one of his ARs was 7.62x39. Also note the tactical dirt colored one seems to have an AWB-compliant stock on it.

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

I wonder if something along the lines of Google Cardboard with old phones could be used as a quick defense against laser attacks? Not quick in the sense of something to be assembled on site, but quick in the sense that it is easily available existing tech that would be relatively inexpensive. I kno...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

Here's something that could kick things off: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TK8liiYOYmQ Personally, I feel officers should be issued mirrors and start teaching these fools that lasers are two-way. (and someone needs to create a smart munition that homes on laser beams and zaps it) If I was a smarte...

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

In spite of all of the above, I don't ever recall elected Federal officials being subject to repeated public harassment, physical attacks and shootings (Representative Scalise) until very recently in my life. A lack of trust and a lack of respect in/for our system of government seems to be at play ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I listed a Glock 23 I bought used a number of years ago and never shot much on Armslist for just a bit higher than msrp of a new one. I had 15 offers to buy in 8 hours. This market is nuts.

Re: 2020 Hurricane Season

This morning, I was pretty solidly in the right side of the cone for Marco, and on the edge of the left side for Laura. Now, who knows.

Although it's looking like Louisiana, and New Orleans in particular, did something to annoy the big guy in the sky. Again.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I have a decent stock but I'm a believer in Clint Smith's way of looking at things. "No one ever complained about having too much ammo in a gunfight." That may be, but I definitely had too much ammo when it was time to move. See also bullets. That stuff weighs a ton. This was my problem. I was in t...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

One thing I noticed yesterday, looking at Ammoseek, at least for 9mm, is that you have to get down the list a bit to find the combination of a seller that I've heard of selling a brand that I've heard of. In this case, it's BulkMunitions, selling PMC 124gr FMJ at $0.659 per round if you buy a case. ...

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

I went to my local Academy last night. The only thing on the shelves in the ammo aisle was a ton of bird shot (and pallets in the aisles - dove, duck, etc seasons coming; I guess that stuff was already in the warehouse before the panic hit) and a few lonely boxes of .22 WMR. Not even any .22 LR. I ...

Random question: has anyone actually seen a Dan Wesson DWX pistol in the wild yet? On a distantly related note, I see the CZ Custom has the 10mm CZ-97s they showed off at SHOT listed on their website. https://czcustom.com/new-firearms/cz-pistols-custom.html/ Base -97B version: https://czcustom.com/n...

I was doing a parking lot check on the Texas Task Force 1 building and parking lot this afternoon, and spoke with one of their guys. He said they except a good bit of flooding on the lower Rio Grande, along the lines of Hurricane Dolly in 2008.

Low- to mid-$40k range is also what the most recent Singer or Union Switch and Signal M1911 auctions I've seen went for.

I'm betting these go higher.

Re: Firearms CHAT: [insert chat title here]

Like I said, not really any threat to Glock's market share. To be fair, thus far even S&W, FN, Beretta, and CZ - all far more established in the pistol market on both the .mil/LEO and civilian sides - haven't really managed to mount much of a threat, combined.
