Re: Revolution on NBC

Couldn't make it through one whole episode. The young female lead is a whiny slitch who shoulda been beat when she was a kid. Completely killed the show for me.

Re: My bolt action .308 setup

I find teflon paste a little handier than the tape. I believe green Locktite is also intended for small fasteners if blue is too stout for your application, red is for permanent installations requiring heat to disassemble. Green is much stronger than the Blue. Blue 242 is the way to go if you ever ...

Re: Re: Cheapest way to start welding

Go to your local technical school and take Welding 112... This. I took an Intro thru Intermediate welding class at the local VoTech for work. Set me back about $300, including materials. They offered stick, wire, and TIG, whichever you wanted to do. Or all three if you wanted to futz around with th...

Re: Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

To be quite honest in a bug out situation, I think hard to conceal would be the least of your concerns... Sure, if hordes of undead are shambling through town, concealability (sp?) is pretty far down the list of "things to worry about". But, for other BO scenarios, from Hurricane Katrina/Sandy, to ...

Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

While I don't agree that "combat tupperware" solves 'all' problems, it solves many... - parts availability and easy changes. Most 1911s require parts to be fit to function reliably. Parts for the Mak can be hard to come by, and probably won't drop right in either. Most of the polymer guns on the mar...

Re: Emerson CQC-7 Mini review. TL;DR: (It's quite positive).

Despite a long term on-again/off-again love affair with Strider, I always seem to come back to my MiniCommander or -7. Honestly, the chisel grind is annoying but dealwithable (is that even a word?), but despite that, I always seem to find an Emerson in my pocket. Don't know him, but the couple of ti...

Re: Re: Jetboil, is there anything better?

You might also look at the Primus Eta range - they share design basics, can't remember who split from whom but they started as one apparently... As I understand it, Primus was making stoves for JB, then they started making their own when JB didn't want to incorporate some changes Primus wanted to m...

Re: Re: Five-seven Vs RIA .22 TCM

I wonder if a 22/22 TCM revolver would be possible in the same vein as the 22/22mag ones already out there. Little late, but no. Two reasons... - As GnR said, bottlenecked rimless pistol cartridges in a revolver don't work. We've tried the 5.7 and the 7.62x25, and they were both abysmal failures. -...

Re: Remington 870 is constantly jamming

- Disassemble and thoroughly clean the bbl and chamber. - Remove the fire control assembly (trigger guard et al), thoroughly degrease, apply a light coat of good gun oil. - WITH THE GUN UNLOADED (or with action proving dummies), dry fire and attempt to replicate the malfunction. - If it does not mal...

Re: Re: Please help me, help a shotgun with sentimental valu

Soak in Break Free, or Liquid Wrench? Are you driving the pin the right way? That's all I've got. BreakFree is pretty worthless, use Liquid Wrench or Kroil for this. I prefer Kroil. Pins usually drive out left to right. Use a starter punch. Use non-marring jaws in a bench vice to hold the part. Mak...

Re: Front sight bead tap size, how to choose?

Pick a size and go for it. :)

6-48 is a standard size, and will give plenty of options as to bead size, shape, and appearance. You could do worse than starting there.

There isn't really a 'if/then' chart out there that I'm aware of. Good luck.

Re: Re: Durability ..... Ruger Single Six vs. Ruger SR22?

The real question is which can you buy replacement parts for on the cheap-ish, and replace them with the current level of gunsmithing training that you possess... This. While the likelihood of something going catastrophically sideways in a Single Six is small, it can happen. When and if it does, ma...

Re: Emergency crowbar/hammer/prybar/weapon/thingy

I have two of the FuBARs, one of the 18"ers that I keep in my truck, and one of the smaller 14"? ones strapped to my BOB. I cut/ground the bottom jaws off the "wrench" end of both, and ground the teeth off the top jaw, to make it easier to use as a 90deg prybar. If I was doing construction, I'd have...

Hi, my name is Chris, and I enjoy puppies, long walks on the beach... :D

I'm a Professional Gunsmith specializing mainly in custom wheelguns, former Marine, and, uh, pretty boring otherwise.

Actually got to this place by Tapatalk recommendation.

Glad to be here.
