Re: My Job, My Hell...

So I spent the first hour of my shift yesterday on lockdown at the railyard due to a reported man with a gun. Nothing like hearing a coworker come over the radio with "yardmaster we have a man with a rifle walking into the west end of the yard". It ended up being nothing, just a local idiot who thou...

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

We've done the diaper trick with valuables at the beach. No one looks twice at a diaper all wadded up like its carrying a full load. If you wanna make it more convincing rub a bit of Grey Poupon or some other type of stone ground mustard around the seams, it gives it that fresh and leaking look...

Re: Six Guns Every US Prepper Should Own + 2 More that are a good idea

I've had the same 2 870's Express Magnum's for 20 years (give or take a few years). One in 12 gauge and one in .410. The 12 gauge has had thousands of rounds through it, just cleaned regularly, and never replaced a single part. It has taken a beating, been on hundreds of hunts in ever weather Missou...

Re: Six Guns Every US Prepper Should Own + 2 More that are a good idea

I've also heard that the Mini's have vastly improved. I heard the Ruger actually listened to it customers and retooled and improved them. Time will tell. A very good AR option if you live in a state that frowns on them. I've always really wanted a M1 carbine. The ammo selection/bullet style have gre...

Re: Six Guns Every US Prepper Should Own + 2 More that are a good idea

I like the list. I have a few dedicated guns like this list has, such as a rifled 12 gauge that shoots just slugs (It loves Hornady SST slugs), that uses rifled sights. I could scope it, but it's more of a brush gun for me, it is a very niche weapon. I have a single shot folding 20 gauge that I use ...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

For those talking about proper belts for a holster, I use this belt with my Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe to conceal a full sized M&P Pro .40. Between the 2 together I can carry it all day and never print in the least. I'm 6'2" 280 for reference.

By frame over 4x4 swap I mean essentially taking the body off and setting it over on a different frame, like a 4x4 Suburban frame or a 1 ton pickup frame of some sort, and going from there. The hardest part is finding something that is very close in the same size as the original frame without doing ...

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

If you are still looking for a good holster, I'd recommend a Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe. I carry my M&P Pro .40 in 1 every day for the past 7 years, only broke it once (my fault :twisted: ), but the lifetime warranty got it fixed quickly.

Re: JeeperCreeper wants to move. Help him.

Check out Missouri. Around, not in, Columbia is decent. Awesome deer and turkey hunting. Missouri river fishing as well as Lake of the Ozarks and Mark Twain Lake nearby. The Mississippi is a day trip away in Hannibal, St. Louis or Louisiana MO. St. Louis and Kansas city are day trip distances too. ...

Re: Ideas on best bug out firearms?

Personally for me, bugging out or not I carry my M&P Pro .40 in a Crossbreed Supertuck Deluxe all the time with 2 spare mags, so bugging out I would definitely have it on me. I recently picked up a Hatfield single shot in 20 gauge. I would stick it in a backpack along with some ammo in a heartbeat. ...
