Re: The Police in PAW...Friend or Foe?

Virginia is another state where court precedent says it's legal to use force, up to and including lethal force, to resist an unlawful arrest. This doesn't mean it's a great option, nor does it mean there won't potentially be hell to pay for doing so, but it is a legal and even moral option. God will...

Re: Cool Lightweight .22/fishing pole

It is an interesting answer to a question I am not sure anyone asked. For $500 you can buy both a .22 rifle and a nice fishing rod. Each will do a better job at it's primary task.s And it will weigh a great deal more. While I wouldn't buy it this is obviously geared toward those who want the lighte...

Re: is a PS90 practical for post-SHTF life?

No. Flashing anything around that reeks of bling (like the Stargate gun) when the shit hits the fan is going to get you killed. When it comes to firearms, most people are familiar with one: the shotgun. It's prolific, cheap and effective. Most people think of shotguns as the gun that goes "click-cl...

Depends on what's coming down the road. The type of issues facing us are going to drive any decisions. If it's a storm that will likely disrupt life for a few days or weeks it's not worth it to disrupt the finances. I can get through several weeks with what I have on hand.

Re: Dry Fire

Any decent firearm made since WWII will be of a high enough quality of steel to resist any damage from dryfire. Actually I can't see anything in dryfire that will possibly cause any harm that would accelerate wear faster than live fire would with only two exceptions; rimfire guns (that don't have a ...

It's just my take on things Ink but if you aren't going to SBR it I'd think about trading it off for something else. As a 16 inch barreled gun you could find something else that would be in the same size range and yet have a good bit more power. a 16 inch barreled PS90 is in no way comparable to th...

Re: 300 AAC Blackout - Builds, Loads, etc...

I don't know about that, seems ejecting is the issue with most bolt guns in .300 Whisper/.300 AAC Blackout. I think the shorter cases is the source of the problem.

Re: is a PS90 practical for post-SHTF life?

The biggest mistake folks are making is comparing the ps90 to the AR. They are not in the same class. Pdw means personal defensive weapon. It does.what its designed to.do. Sling lead accurately at 200 m and cause wounds as you retreat to the folks with the rifles. It was never designed for cqb. Peo...

The only ammo you can expect to have is what you stock yourself. Obviously some people have very different ideas of what a good supply is. I have less than 3K rounds and I'm totally comfortable with that. It doesn't seem likely to me that I'd survive enough gunfights to use a lot more than that. Ot...

6mm, I have a friend who reloads it and he said that if you don't clean/polish the brass you can load it a time or two as is. There are a number of things you can use to lube the brass. I always thougth the dry molly would work well but I don't own anything in the 5.7x28 so I've never tried it.

Re: is a PS90 practical for post-SHTF life?

Plenty are cheaper from the get-go, but he's already invested in the 5.7 platform. 5.45 was the only one I could see him getting out of 5.7 and into without really spending much new $$. Getting out of a gun/caliber implies selling it. Selling the P90 wound generate more than enough cash to buy into...

Re: Which Ak would you buy?

I also live in an urban environment so the increased range potential of the 5.45 is not worth it to me over the increased cover-busting ability of the 7.62. I think you will find that there are a lot more long range shots in an urban environment than you are likely to find in the country. We flatte...

Re: is a PS90 practical for post-SHTF life?

I'd say there are a lot of gun/ammo combinations that would be cheaper than the FN P90. Heck, I could argue that the .308 could be more economical. The cost per round is about the same and a PTR91 can be had for about half the cost of the P90 and mags are still just a couple bucks each. While I'm no...

Re: Gun Ownership Soars To 18 Year High: 47% Of Americans Ad

There are also people who don't own guns who will say they do. In some cases it's because they support the right even if they don't own one and in other cases it's for a different reason. I also remember reading (years ago) that 90% of guns are owned by 10% of all gunowners. If that's true I'm a par...
