Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

My AR-10s have scopes and 45 degree offset BUIS. They are not really "BU", but more for close range shots. The 308 has legs, stretch them out. The MagPul BUIS were in the parts box. The scope is on the "When I have more $$$" list. This was just to get the irons zeroed and function check the rifle. ...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Mental note: that thing the drill sergeants teach you, about putting your nose to the charging handle (to ensure consistent eye placement) when shooting the M-16 or M-4?

Not advised when shooting an AR-10.

Re: The Coming Civil War - (Warning: No Politics)

But if they're going to hold the guns as evidence, they have to have a warrant to take them, which means you need to have probable cause to believe that each of those specific guns is connected to a specific crime, signed off by a judge. And they can only hold them indefinitely if they can establish...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

Looks like Smith and Wesson released a M&P 2.0 Subcompact... basically the old M&P9c but in 2.0 fashion... Color me interested. But people are mad it is not a SIG 365 or SA Hellcat competitor. I guess you can't please everyone The 2.0 is too big IMO. It is almost the same size as a full size. I ima...

Re: Firearms Chat: Yeet Cannon 2 Electric Boogaloo

There was a time in this country where shooting a fleeing burglar in the back was frowned upon but accepted. That time has passed. May depend on local law. There are provisions in the Texas code where, if someone is fleeing with your property, you may use the level of force necessary to recover/pre...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

But it ceased being a standard issue front line combat rifle for the ground services ~1968. Unless you were in the brown water Navy in Vietnam, those rifles in the arms locker on the USS Whatever were not really combat weapons anymore.

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

I'm not sure where you're getting that 1958-1968 date from but I don't think it's correct, based on the fact that my command was issued M14 rifles in March of 1975, most Navy ships still have a number of them in the ship's armory, and they're still in limited use as designated marksman rifles today...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

The Army (and probably the Marines) did pull a lot of them out of storage during the GWOT because of the need for something with better power at range than the M-16 or M-4, and the M-14s were available NOW, without having to go through even SOCOMs abbreviated procurement channels. They have since be...

Re: 2019 - Current Battle Rifles in 7.62x51

Thoughts on the actual battle rifles in the bunch, or the NATO ones at least: M-14: there are good reasons that the U.S. military is the only ones to have ever actually bought M-14s (the only other countries that used them got them for free from Uncle Sugar), and that the M-14 had the shortest servi...

Smith had risen to the level of private first class infantry soldier since joining the Army in June 2017. Cream of the crop that one....

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

They lost the .mil M16 and M4 contracts to FN-USA, who operates out of SC, a lower cost (and gun friendly) location, with a newer plant, probably a younger work force, and almost certainly none of the retiree expenses that Colt has.

Re: Firearms Chat 6: Year of the 10mm

A big part of why the XM8 died was that the Army tried to get cute and sidestep the bid solicitation process for a new rifle/carbine. HK got the R&D cntract for the OICW. What became the XM8 was originally the carbine part of that whole system, which the Army had HK develop separately when it became...

Except .223 is used for hunting. Makes prairie dogs blow up real nice. Also useful for ground hogs, coyotes, and similar sized critters.
