Re: Russia Considering Replacing Ak-47 With Imported Rifle

Or not. You tend to have major trade issues when you buy some samples and then start producing the item wholesale domestically. Russia has suspended several arms deals to China over the Su-27 copies . With Russian need to buy larger weapon systems, like the Mistral, one of the last things they want...

Re: Trouble on the horizon for Saiga-12 owners?

The Feds could mandate the states respect a grandfather clause. This could be a direct mandate or a tit for tat, you respect the mandate or we withhold X. Not saying either is likely but it is possible.

Re: Russia Considering Replacing Ak-47 With Imported Rifle

I am just curious why everyone thinks that a Minister who was appointed by Vladimir Putin and has worked for him with the express mission to modernize the military is a man who is 1. speaking out of his ass and 2. speaking without the approval of the only opinion that matters in Russian politics any...

Re: Russia Considering Replacing Ak-47 With Imported Rifle

Russia's Defense Minister, Anatoly Serdyukov, set off a firestorm of debate in Russia after saying that his military's pride and joy, the Kalashnikov and Dragunov SVDs sniper rifles, are "morally outdated" and that he's considering a plan to buy foreign-made small arms. What does "morally outdated"...

Re: Russia Considering Replacing Ak-47 With Imported Rifle

Russia is already in a big twist about the Chinese reverse engineering the Su-27. Given they are trying to gather support to hold them accountable for violating the licensing agreement and international IP law I don't think they will be copying anyone else's weapon tech and shooting their argument t...

Re: CDNN blowing out PS90 stock

Looking in their catalog (pg 15) they are offering 5 free PS90 mags with the purchase of a new PS90. FNH is also offering $150 cash back for active, reserve, guard and retired military as well as LEO's (pg 17). That is a pretty sweet deal.

Re: Russia Considering Replacing Ak-47 With Imported Rifle

It'll be interesting if this announcement might spark a change in russian firearms manufacturing philosophy though. EDIT(ed) to add: I think Serdyukov's use of 'Morally Outdated' isn't the best translation of his intended message. I think the intention of the original statement was meant to say tha...

Re: Mod My House! Home Security for new home owner

I will give the same advice I typically do for cheap but highly effective defense in depth for your house. 1. Motion activated solar lights on the front and back of the house. These will give you warning and ensure that you can always see who is at the doors to your house. 2. Motion activated chimes...

Re: New Rifle & Range Report

Normally I would have gone shopping for ammo before going to the range but I had 360 rounds of the monarch/wolf that a friend gave me so free ammo is good ammo.

Would you be interested in meeting up for ZS shoot in March?

New Rifle & Range Report

http://i299.photobucket.com/albums/mm320/pyratemime/Firearms/SAM_0983-1.jpg Back at the end of December I finally sold my left-handed Stag and with that money and a little from Santa I was able to buy a new S&W M&P-15 MOE. I am very happy with the rifle since at the moment I am only an occasional s...

Re: Magazine Conversion

I already have 9 15-round magazines so I am hardly hurting for standard capacity mags. It was more a question of is this worth my time and effort to save the 10 bucks to get a used replacement magazine. The answer is rather firmly no. As such I have a mag that is going to go into the bottom of an am...

Magazine Conversion

Went to the range yesterday to zero my new rifle, post on that forthcoming, and after I was done with that fun I ran some of my other guns that have been so long ignored as I have finished school and had a baby. As I began to load one of the mags for my Beretta 92FS I noticed that it was getting awf...

Re: NAA 22mag mini revolver vs darringer

If you go the derringer route have you looked at the Bond Arms .45LC option? They are a good chunk of metal but may be worth looking into.

Re: mini 14

That's not really as bad as it sounds considering what you can get a used Mini for and what a good AR costs. But you have to compare apples to apples and the price on a used Mini vs. a new quality AR is apples to sports cars. If you look at the new price of a Mini + $250 in add-ons to make it a rel...
