Re: Utah man survives for three weeks in Alaskan wilderness

Is that one of those prefab sheds, who new they were made from non fire resistant plastic? Why do they need so much bracing and internal support on an arch, maybe trade the support costs for a less flammable and more solid roofing material. Was there a second building that burned? https://i.imgur.co...

Re: Underground 6

6 Underground Saw this post yesterday after I had already read the synopsis and skipped over the movie. Thought I could make it to at least 25 minutes as a challenge, so I watched it last night.

How’s that expression go? “If a rifle is an option, a rifle is usually the answer.” What ideas from the hive mind?

Re: Repair Wins

Was the hot-side port on the old cartridge clogged with scale or something? I had a similar issue once, except that the cold-side port was plugged and the shower would only go full hot! :roll: EDIT: I like the fishing rod idea...I'll have to keep that in mind for the future. :) No, none of the port...

Re: Repair Wins

Fixed two different issues with one parts replacement. Last week the masterbath shower faucet started dripping. Needed a new valve cartridge to fix the leak. So I eyeballed the existing one and went to HomeDepot. I bought two models, right size but slightly differing config on the gaskets. Moen 1200...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

With the vertical foregrip the MP5 could be declared a SBR. Civilian version? no stock with less than 16" barrel. It would be NFA regulated, but its a pistol with a VFG. That's an AOW. Over 16" bbl, w/ or w/out stock, Not regulated. Permanent stock, less than 16" bbl. but 26" OAL, SBR stamp. But it...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

Rereading this thread. It's quite interesting. Jeepercreeper (Or maybe it was Rickoshea that posted them?)- I was looking at those pics. And wondering. Are PSA's AR10's DPMS style? I assume DPMS AR10's are DPMS style. On the cheap end which of those two would be a better rifle do you think? Assumin...

Re: Where to get a flashlight repaired?

Here's a cheap 1" diameter tailcap, $5 with coupon on amazon right now. It says it fits Surefire so should fit 1" lights. Don't know what the shipping or lead time would be. I have no experience with this tailcap. It's probably NOT a momentary on button. https://www.amazon.com/Flashlight-Switch-Butt...

Re: Where to get a flashlight repaired?

I found my second Fenix E21 that works. I swapped tail caps and the broken one worked. So I took the bad tail cap apart. And found this. I can't seem to get it back together. After a light cleaning to get the corrosion out. I assume I need a new tail cap button (center in the pic)? Or a whole new t...

Asking nicely...could the name of the thread be changed to perhaps... Electric "Avenue?"

Re: 22LR in a rifle, ok for defense?

What I'm hearing is "I need a .22 to be my weekend bullet hose." For that purpose, I would consider a 10/22 or some other dedicated .22 AR style rifle. The reason being you really want something you can shoot a lot, shoot fast, and won't quit on you in the middle of a mag. The Ruger 10/22 has a goo...

Re: I only have one arm in the ZPAW

Are we defending from a walled position or a trenched position? If I'm the only defender on the line, 870. I'll probably only get thru the first mag before being overrun so no need for reload speed or endurance considerations past the first mag. https://media1.tenor.com/images/9a15438f903b32158cc05e...

Re: Where to get a flashlight repaired?

I sent my Fenix E21 in to Fenix for repair. And there was apparently a tiny spot of battery corrosion. Which voided the lifetime warranty. Where else can I send it in to be fixed? Does that mean they won't fix it even if they have to charge you? Its either free under warranty or a chargeable repair...

How much money are you saving buying a dedicated 22 AR vs an AR with a 22 conversion kit? Is there a budget your working to stay within? Because if you have $700-800 you can buy an actual AR plus buy a 22 conversion for it in that price range. But if you buy the dedicated 22 AR, you can't really go ...
