Re: Trap/Skeet/Sporting Clays - Tell Me Everything

What kind of semi-auto? Usually you can dial-down the recoil system to cycle on light loads, just remember to turn it back up for full-power shells. There's such a wide gap between the recoil/pressure levels of target loads vs magnum loads that there's really no way to auto-regulate a system like th...

Re: STL Metro Area: West Lake Landfill fallout/radiation dan

Maybe cap the whole thing with concrete and make self igniting charcoal? The fire break idea sounds feasible. Here's the problem with a firebreak: You can't just dig a trench down and pour concrete in it, because the whole thing is emitting a ton of methane. So any trenchwork has to be done by peop...

STL Metro Area: West Lake Landfill fallout/radiation danger

Hey, I havent seen any discussion of this here yet, so here's the TL;DR: The West Lake Landfill is a big landfill in Saint Louis County that has been designated a Superfund site for a while due to a fair amount of Manhattan Project related nuclear waste (mostly contaminated dirt) contained within a ...

Re: Stuck between G43/XDS/Shield 9mm

I waited for the Shield with no safety to come out, then handled it next to the G42 and found it not as small as I wanted it to be. So I waited until the G43 came out and got that. The 43 feels like it has a shorter grip, which is the part I care about as its the part that prints. It's basically a s...

Re: Sept 23: what's the big deal?

I think it depends entirely on the system, to be honest. We had a bunch of financial stuff, vertical applications that in testing went completely bonkers when it rolled over, and other stuff, like operating systems, just hiccuped and moved along.

Re: EMP "Safer" motorcycle for bug out

Agreed. I fucking hate vintage motorcycles. Although stocking an ignition module plus an ECU for a fully-modern bike would be prohibitively expensive. The sweet spot is probably a 80s/90s carbureted bike with electronic ignition but without full electronics. You could likely stock spare coils and a ...

Any 70s bike without electronic ignition will work that, so look for circa 1970s stuff. Once you go that old you can even usually find something with a kick start.

Re: IBC Liquid Containers

heavy vegetable oil != gasoline with respect to seal or plastic erosion.

And fire codes still apply. I promise either your local fire or environmental codes, even if you live out in the sticks, dont permit you to keep that much gasoline in a plastic container.

Would there be any downside to going with a lighter recoil spring? Harder apparent recoil and accelerated wear when shooting full-power or +P loads, thats about it.

Re: putting together a Vehicle Accident Kit

Ive seen a lot of broken limbs in MVA's and any force great enough to break one limb is great enough to break a bunch of them.

Thats why there's a bunch of SAM splints and slings in the kit.

Also, because SAM splints make a good ad-hoc cervical collar.
