Re: How to discuss terrorism without breaking Rule #7?

Well, they're localized and limited in terms of goals, in contrast to groups like AQ that have sweeping global aspirations. Tactically speaking they're definitely up there, and you're right, they pioneered suicide tactics. It's interesting that suicide attacks have become so closely associated with...

Re: Trail friendly radio = disaster radio?

Too many great choices. Do we have many QRP members? Just installed a FT-857D in my van. ALL MODE HF / 6M + 2M + 70CM MOBILE TRANSCEIVER, Not as portable as the FT-817ND, more power, ergo... weight and power needs. I have looked at the Elecraft, very very tempting. On antennas, take a serious look a...

Re: How to discuss terrorism without breaking Rule #7?

Lowkey, discussion of the ideology will accomplish what? Look back at history, just about every ideology has been used to justify violence. Like guns do not kill people, Books also do not kill people, people do. A person once said, "Evil does not need a reason to do evil." I tend to a agree to that....

Re: How to discuss terrorism without breaking Rule #7?

I think this question represents a major conflict in our way of thinking. We tend to pigeon hole things. The farthest that they are from us the more general the description. As we get to know them better, their name works. Politics is based on this, it is stereo typing. If we say GroupA tangos, that...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

The last time I went out to the range I had the down and left problem too. Then I got warmed up and was basically dead center on. I actually think shooting faster helps me. I have seen that too, I think shooting faster does help. It does not give the brain time to think about anticipated recoil and...

Re: Purpose of a Rifle in Suburbia

Hunting is a small part of the shooting world. Practice shooting, competition shooting, etc takes up most of the sport. So who not own a rifle in Suburbia. Contrary to popular thought, most guns never kill anything. Probably over 99.9+% of the rounds fired in the US never kills anything.

Yaseu FT-817ND 5 Watt HF/6/2/440 with a Buddypole antenna system.

Add a solar charger, a peak and you can chat around the world.

Limitation is, IIRC, Ham bands only.

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

I'd bet anticipation. Like Hollis said, low-left is classic anticipating recoil for a right-handed shooter, and that matches up with my experience exactly. Dry-fire helps a lot but with that snappy recoil and a small frame the compact .40 Glocks are a recipe for anticipation. Notably, I do not run ...

Re: 9mm handgun / submachine gun designed to be suppressed

Glocks, you can buy threaded barrels, then spend $300(IIRC) for the license to have a suppressor. I have two H&Ks that came with threaded barrels. SOCOM and Tactical. Ammo subsonic, is amazingly silent. Super Sonic will still give a sonic crack. but it is non-directional. IIRC, A threaded barrel pis...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

For a right handed shooter, Low to the left is a general sign of pushing forward/recoil anticipation. High to the right is pulling/jerking the trigger Opposite for left handed shooters. How to determine what is what. Load the pistol/ revolver with live rounds and dummy rounds where the shooter does ...

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Out of curiosity, what are you having trouble with? I carried a G23 as a duty gun for a while, and I had more issues with anticipating recoil out of that particular gun than most others. Probably because of the "snappy" .40 recoil and the compact frame, I tended to drop rounds low and left, getting...

Re: Tango Down! Now What? - What to do after a defensive sho

I am guessing the shooter was under a huge amount of stress right after the shooting. Possibly tunnel vision and auditory exclusion. The way we combat stress is through training. In normal times, most places you can count on the police being there fairly quick after a shooting. She may not have eve...

She turned while holding the shotgun, that can mean a immediate threat to the LEO. Time becomes unimportant as to when they (LEO) respond. They do not have any time.

On your case bullets are you using the Lyman Lead bullet manual for loads?

Are you planning on producing sub-sonic rounds?

There is information, look at the 300 Whisper.

A 14.5" carbine, 16" mid, and 20" rifle should all have equal dwell time, that's where the "ideal" barrel length comes into play with the various gas systems. That said, my 14.5 mid runs great. When you mentioned ideal barrel length, would that be where the gas port on the barrel would be? Also can...
