Re: AR pistol lower from a currently-owned stripped lower?

If you buy a stripped lower, ensure it is transferred to you as "other" and not rifle. If it's a FTF deal... just consider it a rifle if you're being particular. From that point, so long as your lower has never been built into a rifle, it can be built into a pistol. Here's a couple other letters whe...

Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

Safeties lead to more accidents, imo. People are more likely to ignore them or fuck with them. If they're too stupid not to pull the trigger unless they're on target or dealing with a clear weapon, they're also stupid enough to not use the safety diligently or routinely as they should. Like people w...

Re: 5.56 AK from a 74 kit?

Here's where I sit... I have no skill and less time. And I'm a bit of a one-and-done type when it comes to doing things (I don't want to have to take it to a person to fix my screwup). So do you already have all the parts needed? By the time you get a kit, buy a receiver, have a smith build it for ...

Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

That article didn't say a damned thing about Glock increasing the # of NDs that occurred.

Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

Maybe I should rephrase my statement by saying that I believe weapons with trigger safety mechanisms are unsafe. It's only because the great majority of guns with that device are Glocks and the great majority of police officers carry Glocks, so by default that's why the name of Glock entered into m...

Re: Bug Out Pistol Debate.

I didn't clarify my doubts, but my first thoughts are "percentage of owners of Glocks dwarfs most other guns these days" if I'm to guess (and then counter that ND's as a percentage of owners is more accurate than simple quantities of NDs), and secondly that his statement faulted the Glock, when oper...

Oh, and I will add that some flavors of TVP can be high in sodium so watch out for that. I remember the Thrive / Shelf Reliance "Taco Meat" TVP being pretty high in sodium. TVP 'flavored' meats make up for their lack of actual meatness with added flavors so it's often salt-based to enhance that, I t...
