Re: COVID-19 Chat Thread

Make no mistake this economic disaster is due not to the disease but rather the reaction and the local business closures. We did this to ourselves. This is untrue this time and has also been untrue historically. Once the pandemic arrived, there were only two outcomes: Economic ruin with a healthcar...

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

According to police dispatch, the lead vehicles in one of the convoys have started shooting at other, non-affiliated, cars, striking at least one through the windshield. Dispatch did not say anything about sending medical units, so I assume this means the occupants haven't been struck. At the momen...

you can get an angled picatinny mount and have the laser offset to one side. This also helps to get around a front sight if you have one.

+1 on checking local independent shops. They often have stuff the internet doesn't. That said, do you have a place to buy 300 BLK ammo? Because right now that's harder to find than the guns if you don't want to pay 3x what it cost a few months ago. People who chose BLK as their goto round are hurti...

Even that's an oversimplification. It's not incorrect, but neither is it correct. The problem, especially in the US, is trying to apply the same rules everywhere.
