I will add that the slain reporter's father previously ran for the VA House as a democrat and lost. He was anti-gun prior to the murder, which I suspect is a big reason he lost in the Southern VA district that he sought to represent.
Slidefires and the like have been discussed before. I was hoping to point you to some other threads, but the search function does not like me today.
I believe the general consensus is the slidefire is not a collapsible stock but one where the whole stock can move a tiny bit. I think the...
I agree the PPS is easy to conceal and light. It was just impossible for me to hit anything with it. So, it became an expensive hammer for me.
I traded it on a Glock 30SF and had no regrets. If he was in a free state, XDs in .45 ACP (or 9mm is about to come out as well) would be an...
Past crime is not sufficient probable cause for a current search.
You would be surprised at how many people will let LEOs freely search their car when they ask. It doesn't hurt to ask (well, I guess it did hurt this cop's feelings).
Mid-length would be better than carbine on a 16" barrel. I have a 16" barrel with a carbine gas tube and it's probably overgassed. It works fine but a mid length would likely be better. I use an H2 buffer and haven't had any issues with it.
All my parts were DPMS as well, but the very tight lock up of the bolt had me worried (well really the fact that 50% of the time I had to mortar the gun to get the dummy round out of the chamber was the issue).
No such issue with a replacement bolt. I was running mine dripping wet as well...
To protect him from himself. Many times LEOs will inspect the weapon and render it safe to protect the LEOs. Not saying it's legal, just saying that is what is done.
If they had arrested him, then it could be a search incident to arrest. Doesn't sound like that is what happened here.
Ejector pin came out of new bolt just fine. Headspace was good. Old bolt seems to have a lug or two not machined to spec. Not so sure about DPMS QC these days.
Much smoother action with the new bolt than the original one. 5 shot group today at 100 yards was about 0.75-1 inch counting the...
