I just stumbled across a $400 BCG. :shock: The Surefire Enhanced BCG.

And I thought I splurged on a TiN BCG.
I saw that on an episode of "Guns and Ammo TV" awhile back.

It was interesting enough that I looked it up (Guns and Ammo TV doesn't show the prices on the stuff they feature, which can be irritating.), found the price and immediately went "Nope."

Pretty much the same for me, except InRange TV.

They seemed to really like it, but I just can't see it making $400 difference; that's a significant portion of the cost of my more expensive AR.

I think the single most expensive part I've got on my AR right now is the Geiselle charging handle I bought a few months ago.

That thing was 75 bucks and I felt kind of dumb for spending that much on one part. So I'd probably feel really dumb spending 400 bucks on a BCG.

I finally broke down and bought a spares kit for my AR.

I was fiddling with the lower, tool the bolt catch off, and while re-installing manage to sproing the bolt catch piston...somewhere. It's probably in the garage, but from what other AR builders have said it's entirely possible it's just slipped through a wormhole. That's apparently pretty common with the brass detents, and it's not all that much larger.

Relatedly, my gunsmithing/maintenance supplies have outgrown my 3-drawer toolbox. I'm thinking of "upgrading" to a cheapie Craftsman rolling box that's on sale for nearly half-price at Lowe's; it's not great, but it's larger, inexpensive, and I think will be good enough for my current needs.

(I'll buy or build something better once I can get into a proper shop.)

When it comes to tool storage and gun safe, find the absolute largest QUALITY item you can afford, then save up to double it.
Whatever you reasonably expect to need is usually a little less than half of what you should have.
Fortunately for me - tractor supply has their 64 gun safe marked way down for idiot Friday with free ship to store.. and I can pick it up next week once the madness has passed.
I just wish you could choose the door swing. Since it's going next to another cannon 64, it would be nice if they opened opposite each other.

TFB - TFB’s Top 10 Calibers for Gun Hipsters

Everyone knows that one guy who won’t shut up about his meme caliber. He will find any and every excuse to talk about it, show you pictures of it and tell you about its amazing terminal ballistics. Despite a cornucopia of overwhelming evidence against why his particular caliber isn’t all that great, he will nevertheless insist. So all you gun hipsters grab your Macbook, slip on your skinny jeans and get ready to blog about how wrong we are at Starbucks while you blast the latest Decemberists album.




*ETA: Unless I missed one somewhere, I only counted nine on their list. So what Hipster caliber is missing: .17 HMR, .22 TCM, .327 mag, .357 Sig, .277 Wolverine...????

TTAG - 59-Year-Old Texas Woman Killed in Feral Hog Attack


No, she wasn’t hunting. No, she wasn’t out in the sticks somewhere. Chirstine Rollins was visiting the home of a client in Anahuac, Texas, an exurb east of Houston just south of I-10 when she was set upon by feral hogs.

From the scene the local sheriff found, it appears that she was attacked in her client’s yard after she got out of her car in the home’s driveway early Sunday morning.

As Sheriff Hawthorne says in his statement above, Rollins died due to exsanguination due to feral hog assault. In other words, she bled to death after the pigs attacked and bit her multiple times.

On a similar note. I was looking up some info on something from my hometown and ran across the story that since our moving away in 2006 my former area is now over run by urban coyotes.

I posited .45 Super and .45 SMC. They're almost but not quite .45 ACP, which sounds just perfect for hipsters. :D

Asking nicely...could the name of the thread be changed to perhaps... Electric "Avenue?" I've seen a notice, and more recently heard a report on NPR that the other word is being tied more and more closely to extremists. I am not, so... the center must hold. Wouldn't want people happening upon this site through a word search and get the wrong idea. God Bless, Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

Hehe... that didn't take long
In the interest of political correctness I vote we change the name of this thread to BOATY MAC BOATFACE . (at least until this is also linked to extremists ideology :awesome: )

ETA.... or we reach 50 pages

I remember we had a CHAT thread go over 500 pages a few years back. Not quite sure what the highest Firearms CHAT thread got, but I do remember when ZS didn't have the 50 page limit.

I actually kind of prefer the way it is now. Less chance of the forum going wonky when the mods nuke an old thread like in the years previous.

Other possible contenders for the name change
Godzilla vrs. the Yeet Cannon
Loose lips sink ships but a Glock makes a Lousy Anchor
Quick draw Mac Boatface
Pistol Packing Safe Space
Flinging Bullets for Fun and Profit
Zombie Gun Chat ( Now with more bullets )

There was some good stuff that was lost, I'll admit that.

Some of it was good advice, funny anecdotes and stories, and posts from folks who haven't visited ZS in years.

Folks like Jaybird, Zoltan, Amy Elizabeth, Oneswunk, Bonanacrom and others whose names I've sadly forgotten.

Got it...………. Two votes for Boaty Mac Boatface . Got to admit , didn't think you two would be on board for that name . But you seem all in
