Re: Gun Shows are Dead

I just went to one for the first time in about seven years. It was ridiculous. I saw a used Marlin 795 for $225. You could buy it for less than half that price at Academy just down the road. Used Springfield XDs for $550...any kind of Mauser was at least $300. Anything that was military surplus was ...

Re: PSL-54C

I'm going to risk getting this buried and bump it for some info. There was a more recent thread about a Dragunov vs. the PSL, but I thought this one might get noticed more. I like the Mosin Nagant and I get the Russian surplus ammo from aim surplus. While there, I was noticing this rifle and thought...

Re: Bugging Out is NOT Going to War!

My best friend, Vai, got arrested and his first felony in the LA riots because he was helping protect some Somoan owned stores. His crew were contacted via LAPD because of brandishing (one of the Somoans strayed a bit from the "property" of the store and was a known gang member) and all the rest go...

I have one of those "Mine Bags", actually... It's bigger than the "Deploy Bag" I linked too, I'd say about twice as big. I use my "Mine Bag" as a catch-all med kit.

Re: Bugging Out is NOT Going to War!

Enough with the avatar thing. It's bordering on ad hominem. As stated a bunch of times, nobody is arguing against guns, it is an argument about when and where and to what extent. Problem #1: Guns are not all created equal. There can be a big difference between a rifle for hunting and a rifle for sel...

sigboy40. Everything in life has a balance. I thought that was his point.
