Re: Shooting what fits you vs commonality of parts & mags?

I feel there are several contexts and several variations in the answers here: Do you buy a pistol with common parts availability or do you buy a pistol which fits you well? Do you buy a common caliber or a specialized caliber and stack it deep? What about the Rifle world? What do you do pre-disaste...

Re: Shooting what fits you vs commonality of parts & mags?

"Last thought is a revolver that can shoot multiple cartridges. 357 can use 38 special and maybe even certain old timey 38 cartridges depending on your gun. A gun that shoots 327 can shoot 32 H&R Magnum, 32 S&W Long and even 32 ACP. A S&W 460 can also fire 454 Cassul, 45 Colt and 45 Cowboy Special. ...

Re: Lithium rechargeable aa's?

I dunno; lithium batteries supposedly can handle 1000 recharge cycles, while NiMh batteries like the Enloops apparently are only good for 500. So there's an argument that they're worth the price premium if you're prepping for the truly long term. I think you got that backwards. I've always seen Ene...

Re: Lithium rechargeable aa's?

There are quite a few rebranded Eneloops out there if you do a bit of searching. I've had good luck with the Ladda rechargeable batteries from Ikea, which are $6.99 / 4pack. Those are believed to be rewrapped Eneloop Pros. Moab, what charger did you buy? A lot of the Li-ion chargers are smart charg...

Re: Shooting what fits you vs commonality of parts & mags?

I think rons comments hold up with ammo too. I've seen threads about picking oddball arms as oddball ammo is always left last. But once that initial shortage turns into outright absence. You're going to have a much easier time finding 9mm or 5.56 than some oddball caliber. That no one you know carri...

Lithium rechargeable aa's?

I bought a lithium battery charger. With 8 bays. And a set of what i thought were 8 rechargeable aa's. Turns out they were single use. Now that I'm looking for replacements. I see that they are about $5 each. Not sure i want to spend that much on batteries for around the house. Anyone know of a more...

Re: Shooting what fits you vs commonality of parts & mags?

As others have said, the Market at large might not be a dependable source of parts or replacements in times of trouble; although I'd say the market disruptions follow a fairly predictable pattern, and those parts being more common and cheaper the 3.5 out of 4 years more than makes up for a few mont...

Those little Truppe Special Carcano carbines that have been floating around for the last couple months keep tempting me. So far I've been able to resist by thinking about not wanting to add another caliber....and by stroking my Ishy Bastard Scout. :rofl: https://www.budsgunshop.com/images/hiRes/411...
