    I was engaged in a completely unrelated photo search when I came across this.... WTF is it? Some photo shopped joke or something else?
  3. .22LR fascination? Please explain.

    Perhaps I'm out of touch. Personally I always got bored quick with the round. Can someone explain the fascination and hoarding I've seen and read about over the last few years? Reasons I can see and understand. Ok obviously it's a cheap round. You just simply never get tired of sending...
  4. Antique ammo find

    You know you and your family's been into guns for some time when you unearth something like this. I was rummaging through some old miscellaneous parts and stuff and found this.

  5. Platinum

    Been watching PM's for some time now and since I like to diversify investments I've always pondered acquiring some physical platinum. After doing some research Ive discovered platinum has several factors that drive price due to supply and demand. The list of factors are lengthy so just to...
  6. Nes Member/user title

    Quick question. I've noticed many people on here have different titles under their user names. Such as Army veteran or Forum so & so. I searched through all the settings & found no option to change this status. I'm not interested personally in changing mine to something else. I was just...

    Hi all, My supply of 7.62X39 is running low. I haven't stocked up in quite a few years now. Things must have changed a bit between now and then & I was wondering what you guys were using these days. I only have a few concerns. First is consistent ignition. I can't stand super hard...
  8. Glock questions

    Sorry if these questions are common knowledge but I'm not really sure. Did some searching without much luck. I've wanted a G26 for probably 7 or 8 years now & have no clue why I haven't picked one up. I love my J frame Smith but After watching the videos of gang or dare I say protestor hoards...
  9. S&W Quality (Revolvers)

    All of my revolvers are S&W. I prefer them because their attributes cater to my type of shooting. I have'nt bought a new one in many years. Some are pre lock, some post but all are solid, well made quality pieces. I've been speaking with people here and there that are saying S&W quality lately...
  10. 9mm Compensator

    Hey guys, I'm looking to compensate a 16" 9mm blow back carbine rifle. I could make one but I thought it would just be allot easyer to buy one. After doing a little research it seems people really like the Carlson comp for 9mm. It's not the fancyest looking thing but if I'm going to put...

It was produced at the Harpers ferry & Springfield arsenals between 1816-1844 with about 675,000 units produced...
  14. Tumbler Media

    I Was reading Fixxah's post on brass cleaning & thought about having to dispose of all that soapy lead infested water. I wouldn't want to pour it down my sink or even outside. I Think I'd rather keep the residue in my tumbler. I decided to look up Hornady's MSDS on proper & responsable...
  15. Less than lethal weapons: A Threat?

    It apperars to me that our society is approaching a crossroad when it comes to weapons & defence.

  17. Anyone reloading .357? & for what purpose?

    Just wondering if anyone out there is reloading .357 mag. I have a good amount of once fired, high quality brass & nickel. I thought about loading them up but I just can't think of a use for them other than bowling pins or home defence. The reason I havn't over all these years I guess is...
