Re: Published my third zombie novel.

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

the Wolff springs are a huge upgrade and if you clean up the casting inside while you have it apart it will be one slick gun.

Re: MOLLE Vest: The heck do I do with it?

Why not use it for a carbine class, people will be in all colors of vests. Just because its black shouldn't be a reason to not use it. Vest's and chest rigs really are good to have for things like a class or a range day.

I use mine fairly often

Re: Picatinny rails on a bicycle helmet?

Maybe Magpul Moe rail sections, drill and screw on. I think that would be a solid solution.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

Try handloads.com they have a lot of well documented loadings for pretty much anything. Always work from minimums and slowly work up never start at a max load. 4.0 of bullseye is a starting load with 4.4 being right around 1000fps which is a medium hot load. If you don't have a chrono its defiantly ...

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

I've had a RCBS single stage press for 30yrs or so, I often use it to run a very small run up to test a load before going to the Dillon and running off a bunch. I use the RCBS hand primer when doing that. Other than that using favorite loads i prime and load all on the dillon.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

The Lee single stage press works fine, the progressive presses suck great big donkey dicks. The primer feed is a total pain and hardly works you are constantly having to adjust which means whack it to get it to work. Their stuff works sort of, if you use it for many rounds though and then try your b...

Re: Knife for Battle Belt

One of the Becker mid sized knives would work well, so would the Esee line they are a bit higher though. Im not a big fan of Kabar's stick tang in the Marine corps knives, I've seen those break a few times. Most of the Gerber line sucks, you can get a better knife with better steel for the same mone...

Just a fairly thin piece, rough side out, not suede but regular tooling type leather. I use a piece of stirrup leather. Rub the side with some green polish and you will be good to go.

Thats why I included the suggestion to take some double sided tape and wet dry paper whatever grit floats your boat and add it to the back of the tin. You could put a thin piece of leather on the other side for a strop. I also think DMT makes a credit card sized double sided diamond stone. Their pro...

Re: ESEE altoids tin question

Its certainly not a all you need to survive kit, as its attached to my belt knife its more of a holy shit I lost my damn pack and its freaking cold and dark kit. Along with some small items I've found to be handy in the woods over the years.

Re: Firearms Chat Part 2: Bullpups cause all the rage!

Is anyone familiar with the S&W SD40? I just happened to see one at the PX on base today and they were 290. which seemed like a screaming deal for a Smith. They had M&P 9mm for 440 which seemed a good price too.

Re: Press therapy - reloading room *chat*

For military brass I've always used a dillon super swage 600, it is the fastest way to open up the primer pocket to reload. Its a lot faster and easier than trying to ream it.

Re: Building a battle belt

Sure post it up. Just to be clear on my belt it looks like the sheath knife is close to the butt of my pistol, it is laying flat. Totally different on though its just past the point where it ends up on the back of my hip lol.
