  1. Bad Experience, Air Gun Depot

    A few weeks ago I ordered an air gun in .22 from Air Gun Depot. They sent me the correct model, but in .177 caliber. When I tried to exchange it for what I had actually ordered, they wanted me to pay for return freight, because there was "nothing wrong with the product." I had to spend...
  2. Muzzle Sweep

    I got muzzle swept by a cop in the Philippines earlier today. Actually, it was a bit more than a sweep. I was standing at a cross walk and he was standing next to me. He had a 12 gauge slung across his body and was holding it completely horizontally, at a 90 degree angle from his body. When...

  6. Harassed by the NRA

    The NRA has called me every day for the last 2 + weeks, even though I have asked them to stop calling me several times. I am a member, but they are looking for more money. My 2A money goes to Comm2A and SAF. The little prick who called me tonight was super aggressive. I am about to peel the...
  7. CVA Muzzleloader Service Question

    So, my brother sent a CVA Accura V2 muzzleloader in for service. The rifle was brand new, but to make a long story short, the barrel needed to be replaced. He pushed for a full product replacement but they pushed back and replaced the barrel rather than the rifle. They sent it back with the...

  13. Swept my House This Afternoon - False Alarm

    When I got home this evening around 5pm there was a Yamaha quad parked at the end of my driveway tucked in neatly next to my shed, and it was apparently chained to my fence. I don't own a quad, and there was absolutely no reason for it to be there. I wasn't sure if someone had stolen it and...

    I am a Massachusetts LTC holder and I will be spending some time in a hotel room in Maine this weekend. Although I don't plan to CCW there, I want to bring a handgun that I will keep in a case in my room. As I understand the law, mere possession does not require a permit of any kind in Maine...
  15. Northborough Walmart - Never Again!

    I am never buying ammo at Walmart again. It is always at least a 20 minute afair to find an employee in Sporting Goods, then wait for them to find an employee with the right key to the case, then wade through the delays caused by a complete lack of training on how to sell it. Today it took...
