Re: Firearms Chat: Stipple that, home edition

I might be in the minority on this, but I'd love to hear from both Chills and Dave regarding the two different styles of belts. I can certainly understand the rational behind the drop free belt, but I'm also curious to hear why the "gamers" prefer the belt stuck to a belt setup... NXP Ninja edit - C...

Re: Firearms Chat: Stipple that, home edition

My fav Glock by a large margin is the G17RTF2. If you're going to chop one, please just sell it and get a regular Glock--not enough of them as it is. I know I saved and scoured forever for my RTF2, and got it for a great price. I've wanted one for so long, I'm not really sure I could go through wit...

Re: Firearms Chat: Stipple that, home edition

Welp, next one I'm doing is a G19 and I'm going to slap a used RMR on it. I'll let you know what I think. I'm not sure how it'd work on a G26, fine, probably. Biggest accuracy issue I have with my G26 is the short sight radius but if I focus, LIKE A FUCKING LASER*, I can shoot it just as well as my...

Re: A tale of two choppers--Fiskars x7 vs. SOG Tactical Toma

1) Call Gerber 2) Request a replacement cover for the matching Gerber hatchet 3) Wait 4) Free hatchet cover shows up. 5) Profit??? That said, I'd chose neither for a BOB. I own the Gerber, and have no use for the SOG. I'd rather upgrade to a true short handled ax, either another Fiskars (like the X2...

Re: Remora No Clip Holster Self Torture Test

FWIW, the Remora will hold a 3rd Gen Smith alloy up just fine - I suspect it would hold most steel/alloy single stacks up with no issue either. Just don't let it get grimy, that cuts down on the tacky-ness and it will wander. Still like mine, but there's a lot of these styles of holsters out there n...

Re: Which Hunting setup would you rather use for shotgun

Slug for sure over buckshot. Personally, I'd still take the 26" barreled gun, but use a Foster type slug (like Brenneke). My favorite "cheap" slug is a Brenneke KO, which is usually in the tube as a backup to the SST that's loaded to go. The Foster slugs have the vents that will deform as they pass ...

I would often silently mock those with table clothes before having two children.
