Re: COVID-19 Thread

Two things I would like to address given the current shift in the conversation here: 1) I cannot speak for the entire nation (obviously) but here in West Tennessee, certain types of crime have increased. As Stercutus pointed out, property crime and burglaries are increasing here in Dyersburg, as we...

Re: Using the new Imgur button to upload images

This is cool, I stoped using photobucket and the other one. This will be nice. However, for those of us that post from our phones is there a way to do the advanced? I tried it and it gave me a “file to big” error. I can’t right click because we’ll..... it’s a phone. I tried pressing and holding and...

Re: Using the new Imgur button to upload images

Nice intergration! It is, isn't it? An easy, integrated, way to post images has been something these forums needed for a long time. The issue was storage and bandwidth. This system doesn't use space on our server and only limited amounts of bandwidth. It's going to need some tweaking (working on th...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

How do we bug out from an overly infected LA to anyplace safer if a travel ban and martial law is in effect? Many of you live in lesser infected areas. OR at least rural areas where you can more easily get out of the way of this thing. This right here is the biggest, nastiest fallacy we face, the c...

Using the new Imgur button to upload images

One of the things that have always been a PITA here on the forums was putting images in your post. For a long time Photobucket was the way to do it, then they changed their system and raised their prices to the point they aren't practical. Imgur has become the new preferred image host but it was a l...

Re: Looking into a new pistol

So no love for the XDM 10mm? I want a 10mm, and if I am going to get one, I would like to be able to swap calibers. A couple.of hundred bucks to be able to able to do so is fine with me. It is more about being able to experience the feel of the round, and being able to share it with other shooters....

Re: COVID-19 Thread

Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be legal challenges. I'm not an attorney, nor did I stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, so what I say/think about this may be utterly wrong. It would be more uncharted territory. The USG is not the gate keeper on freedom of moveme...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

I have no idea about this when it comes to Canada. I don't expect you to, but what would need to occur to achieve that restriction in America? A state of emergency? Martial law? An agreement between governor's and state troopers? Martial law would likely do it, but I expect there would still be leg...

Re: COVID-19 Thread

That gets into an area that would see a lot of legal challenges as being unconstitutional I think. What about under martial law? Just curious. Canada's eastern provinces are closed. But they're small provinces with few (read: one, maybe two) highways. My wife was speaking to a colleague from their ...

Dunno about .357 Sig (as I've never actually seen it in the wild), but there are 10mm Auto->.40 S&W conversion barrels for 10mm Glocks, even the gen 5.

Re: Bug Out Gear Deals (Post 'em when you find 'em) I

Nice deal but after the big middle finger Dick's gave to the firearms community awhile back I won't do business with them. The rest of y'all are grown adults and free to make up your own minds about this.

Re: Looking into a new pistol

I'm sorry to not answer the question you are asking, but a far better way is to stock enough commonly available (and far cheaper) ammunition during normal times that you don't even notice periods of low supply.... I have this covered. plenty of 9mm, 45 ACP, & .22 picking up something to handle odd ...
