Re: Self defense weapons and items in the UK

Airports are usually different in my experience, but you got to keep in mind that 9/11 was VERY fresh back then so they didn´t take any chances. (it was 2003 when i was there, thought i´d mentioned it before but i didn´t) It probably didn´t help that my sole was disintegrating on one of the two boot...

Guess who´s getting a free first aid training....

:D Yay! Me! So my company is offering a free first aid training through a volunteer EMT (yes we have them here, just like volley firefighters) and i jumped on it! Most likely, i will get paid for it if it happens to be held within working hours. That´s about all, i´m looking forward to get a refresh...

Re: Self defense weapons and items in the UK

Back when i was in England for vacation, i simply wore steel toe boots as a self defense tool if the need would ever arise.

Be prepared to take them off at airports though so they can run them through their x-ray and of course they will ring the walk through metal detectors.

Re: 16" or 18" barrel for AR

Could having them wrapped around the barrel cause them to get hotter than normal, resulting in melting or distortion issues? I wouldn´t know, but: I´ve checked and it seems they´re only wrapped 1 coil around the barrel. My mind was playing tricks on me! IMHO: i think the generated amount of heat th...

Re: 16" or 18" barrel for AR

What about pigtail gaspipes in a 16"er ? (that´s a 20" pipe coiled 2-3 times around the barrel in it´s midsection, so a rifle lenght pipe would fit a carbine system and add the advantages of the rifle lenght system to a carbine) They´re probably a bit harder to clean but aside from that?

He wants a flat top. Why not?
Yeah i got it, but in this reply i was talking ´bout my friends flattop upper that needed a free float, not OP´s carry handle upper. In OP´s case, i already said it one or two times that it´s best to sell it as a whole and not bother.

Re: What to do with an AR carry handle upper?

The reason we had to jerry rig it was that he wanted a free float rail installed. You wouldn´t seriously buy a new upper because you wanted another rail, would you? You can bet your ass that a "jury rig" Crescent tool adjustable wrench is about a 100% better tool then most of these "dedicated armore...
