Well, I own a 1810 Sutton muzzle-loading smoothbore, the trigger/spring mechanism still "works" but I'd be crazy to actually load and fire it (1. I'd probably kill myself... and 2. Well, what a waste of a family heirloom worth a lot of dough) As far as guns I've actually fired, a Romanian 1977 AKM (...

I just got an e-mail about JoeKen Firearms. Apparently still not the guys to deal with. Going with another compnay (Still an MPA MAC clone) costs an extra $20 but ATB worth it. Yeah, accuracy plays no role in this purchase. Just a cool gun. I think I'll go with the 9mm MAC-11 clone because of the ma...

JoeKen Firearms MAC clones

I've been eyeballing the hell out of JKF's MAC-10/11 Clones. Anyone have any experience with these? They look appealing because of the price ($289 for the 9mm and $299 for the .45ACP) and the 9mm takes unmodified Sten magazines and the .45ACP takes unmodified grease gun mags. Sten mags are a lot che...

If it's the stuff I'm thinking of, it was on the "Cop Killer" restricted ammo list along with the Black Talons and Rhino Hides back in the early 90's. But I can't be sure. Black Talons, thank the rappers 2LiveCrew for getting those banned. :roll: Turns out they really weren't even that special, esp...

My g/f wants, or at least recommends, a Rhodesian Ridgeback. I've heard that as well, but never interacted with one. I have an American Bulldog, he's very protective of anyone in the family (Some caution required with strangers) mine even packs heat! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v11/DavePAL84/...

Apparently, Rhinoliner is a pretty decent shrapnel/bullet guard. I e-mailed the guy at the box of truth about it. He said he's gotten a few requests but as of yet no one has sent in rhinolinered doors or anything of the like. The potential is there and is relatively inexpensive (compared to kevlar s...

My wife is not into firearms but she (mostly) supports my favorite hobby. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of hiding money here and there just so I can buy something cool (I have Mac-10/11 money in my pocket right now...) She just knew from the very beginning that I was a "gun nut", in fact, our se...

Ah the great AR vs. AK thread (soon to be a monster) I own and shoot both on a regular basis (Actually I have several more AK's than AR's, but I equate that to being cost-effective) Cons: AK-series: -Awful sights -Not ergonomic at all (especially for mag changes, rock n' lock is anything but fast, t...

More proof that thw BHP might be the way to go. Glad to have you aboard DAVEPAL84 You said the BHPs controls were similar to the 92s. Beretta 92s are DA first shot with a safety/decock lever. Was your BHP was a BDA9 version? Or was it a standard SA with manual safety. Too bad those pricks did not l...

All 203's are direct fire weapons, they are too low velocity/short range/small for indirect fire. ;) Well artillery it ain't, however, any weapon that you have to hold at a 45 angle or higher just to shoot 300m I'd call an indirect fire weapon. (We're not talking about pistols here either) It sure ...

Excellent information bro. Do you have any feedback about Glock's performance in the "sand box"? You mentioned using a captured BHP during part of your time there. How did it perform for you? The SF trainers I talked to only had one complaint about the Glocks, that it has no manual safety and the I...

That you should change out your carry ammo every 6 months to ensure reliability. Everyone has their own change-out time. Personally, I change out all of my carry ammo once a year.

Personally, I can't stand the 92F/M9 series. I was issued and carried one as my secondary firearm for both my tours in the sandbox. In a clean environment, they function perfectly (never had a problem--at a stateside range) but exposed to dirt, crud, and dust they turn into a stovepiping single shot...

Pretty looking toy, but I can't think of very many practical uses for it. Not to say there aren't uses for it however.. Okay, so it's basically a man-portable multi-shot M203. Looks like a real PITA to carry (I suppose like an M249 SAW, except you don't have to carry a SAW and an M-4 or, in the Mari...

Eastern Carolina checking in

Just a quick introduction, My name is Dave, I'm another one of those former military types (Did 2 tours in Iraq and spent some time in Africa and Eastern Europe) and I hate the living dead just as much as the next red-blooded American (or, as I've noticed, Canadian) guy. I enjoy collecting and shoot...
