  1. Question for mini 14 owners

    I have five of the Ruger 10 round magazines and had some problems with one of the mags. The metal right above the hole that locks the mag into place is bent inward toward the follower, just enough to cause the tip of the rounds to scrape the metal and jam. I figured I would disassemble the mag...
  2. Nice Jogging Holster

    http://www.pistolwear.com/pt-2-concealment-holster/ Been using it for a couple of months with a G26. I figured if it can handle the weight of a G26 without jumping around on my waist than it is good to go for me with a Shield or BG380, which are more likely to join me on a run in warmer months...
  3. M&P Mag Sub2000

    I'm looking for a 9mm M&P mag Keltec Sub2k. Anyone seen one of these unicorns in Mass? Thanks
  4. Water sources and poison ivy

    So one of the few sources of fresh water near my home has a crap-ton of poison ivy growing in and around the stream. I don't know the science around the oil from poison ivy plants, but I'm highly allergic, so it's a concern. Haven't found any info on the safety of using water like this online...

  6. My new favorite YouTuber

  7. (ENDED) Free Books 8/5 & 8/6 Only

    I posted about this in the Karma section, but I realize that there are still people who are not Green members of the board, who might be interested in this. GO GREEN! Some of you may know that I have been working on a series of "prepper/emp fiction" books based in Boston and the first two books...
  8. Finally getting into canning

    My wife had been wanting a deep freezer for the basement for years, to give us more meat storage. We got one last fall, but in my "prepper's mind" I kept thinking about a grid down scenario and the possibility of meat going bad before we would need it, if it was all stored in the freezer. So we...
  9. Discrete preparedness gear at work

    I work in a school setting, so there are limits to the type of gear I can have on hand at work. This means I have to be a bit creative in thinking about ways to be prepared for a worst case scenario in school, which for me would be the active shooter scenario. (I have a GHB in the car and don't...
  10. The North Remembers

    I think we need a thread to acknowledge the shops that didn't jack prices yesterday in the midst of the rush. I would love to out the shops that did jack the prices, (one shop I visited was charging $125 for Anderson lowers [rolleyes].) However, rather than focus on the negative, I'd like us to...
  11. Is my 9mm Carbine build screwed?

    Are pistol caliber AR style carbines also included in this AG crap. I don't have a lower yet and can't get a clear answer from any dealers yet about accepting transfers of a 9MM lower receiver.
  12. Is it a flash hider or a compensator?

    I am collecting parts for a 9mm carbine build and ordered a product from CMMG that is listed on their site as a "compensator," which made me feel warm and fuzzy, because I wanted something compliant for my PSA 9mm upper that will come with a typical flash hider. I have found the same product on...

  14. Copy of 4473 on lower receiver

    I am planning a pistol caliber carbine build in the near future. I know that I complete the 4473 when I pick up the receiver, but was wondering if it was appropriate to ask for a copy of the form for my own records. Is there a reason why an FFL wouldn't or couldn't make a photo copy for me...

  16. Carry Capacity Inadequacy Complex (CCIC)

    I'm submitting this as a new diagnosis in the next DSM revision. [smile] I currently carry a Shield in 40 and love the gun. My biggest problem with it is capacity. I always tend to think about those rare "what if" scenarios and start to feel uncomfortable with something that carries 6 or 7...
  17. Wife is at the Sig Academy and I'm on the couch.

    Life can be so unfair sometimes. [laugh] My better half signed up with some friends to do a women's class there. I'm glad she's doing it, but can't help but feel left out. Oh well, I'll just count my blessings and appreciate the day with my kids.

  19. Roll up N9TAX antenna mount

    Picked up a couple of N9TAX slim jims ($28 each) and decided to mount them on pvc (mainly to keep them straighter) to hang in the attic. One antenna is tuned for 2 Meter / 70 cm and the other is tuned for MURS and GMRS. I got them primarily for SHTF simplex communication with a couple of family...
  20. Blue Rain Barrels $35

    My sister in law found these for me at Americas Food Basket in Hyde Park. Not sure if they carry them at the other AFB stores in the area. $35 tempted me to brave the pre-Thanksgiving crowd, but there were plenty, so I imagine they will still be there this weekend. I think they are 55 Gallon...
