Re: Just Right Carbine in .45 ACP

I had mine for a few months then sold it. Not going to lie... I had to verify with an image on google before posting that.

Re: Just Right Carbine in .45 ACP

And its indexed from the left side. Unless the user has freakishly long fingers and is left handed, the support hand must be used. Also, mags must be inserted at a forward angle. I used to have one in 9mm. Not bad guns, but it's not very close to an AR.

Re: Glock Extended Mag Release Comparison- OEM, Vickers, Gho

Pretty interesting, and now I'm inspired to shoot-the-shit about mag releases. I have the vickers on my gen4's and OEM .45 releases on my Gen3-9mm's. I like the releases to be a little soft around the edges. Even the gen3 releases got a little sanding treatment to shorten them and round the corners....

Re: 12-gauge Options

Why don't you just go with a double barrel shotgun with two triggers. Just keep the conversion sleeve in one barrel and a 12 gauge slug in another? Sounds good in theory, until you're swinging on a bird in flight, or knocking something out of a tree. Now your finger is in the trigger guard of a tri...

Re: Scout Rifle, or...

They make a great close to intermediate range hunting rifle, at a time when variable power scopes were not where they are today. They still do very well in that area, in my experience. The last deer I took with a rifle (probably ever, as I gave it up in favor of a stickbow) was taken with a Ruger F...

Re: GHB with a major waterway crossing?

Rubber waders sink when filled with water. Neoprene waders like neoprene wet suits will float. Divers have to add extra lead to counter the buoyancy of their neoprene suits. They also insulate you even if filled with water. Get a set that fits pretty close and even less water gets in. Add in a truc...

Google how to make a poncho raft. They work. So do issue wet weather bags.

I wouldn't go in water deeper than my waist in chest waders. If for whatever reason they filled up yer dead, man.

I found a Cx4 storm today. Price didn't come out yet as its on consignment, but the dude at the shop said he;s pretty sure its going to go for 1000 bucks. I think I'ma pick it up for that much.

I've used to have a Butler Creek on a Mav88. Its a fine stock, locks up tight, easy to deploy. Now I have a Choate top folder on an 870. Main reason I have it is just because I wanted a 70's-80's esque cop movie shot gun. The Rem factory folders are way too expensive though. The Choate is also a fin...
