  1. Antenna question...

    I have a quick question. I have a telescoping BNC antenna on my base. I moved the base slightly (less than 2 feet) and extended the antenna fully (about 2 meters up). I get signals on my Kenwood (running through a PL-259 to BNC RA adapter), however they are all garbled on 2m. Any ideas? I...
  2. M-type antenna adapter for a Kenwood

    Hey, I am looking to see if any of you guys out there know where I could get an M-type adapter to a BNC-F for my Kenwood. I have a TM-V71A. I thought maybe an N-type would work but it won't. I also took a look at AES in Ohio and HRO but neither seem to have them. A Google search didn't turn up...
  3. Ham classes?

    Does anyone know of Ham classes in the North Shore area? I searched ARRL but no responses. I would like to take the license exam (Tech) next month. I have the research materials and apps to study but I was thinking a hands-on would be great too.
  4. SDR's?

    I just got a NooElec SDR with an antenna and a HF upconverter. I attached a BNC antenna to the HF upconverter. I can see that when I make a 'courtesy call' the transmitter emits a signal which echoes through the repeater, but nothing comes through. It's only running about 5 watts on TX. I had...
  5. ID'ing a gun

    I was given a black powder revolver (it has a top notch in the cylinder, it does not take caps). I think it's Belgian. There's a flange behind the cylinder that is wider than the cylinder. That was my first reaction. It might be WWI vintage. In front of the cylinder is a hex bolt that says...
  6. This is worth a read

    OK, so "we" aren't all that bad after all. Take a read: http://www.concealednation.org/2014/01/i-left-my-glock-27-loaded-for-3-years-straight-and-a-remarkable-thing-happened/
  7. I need to buckle down...

    I have been looking to get my Tech license for a while, work and other matters have put me off. Does anyone have clubs that are in the Woburn, MA area? I have an app to test myself, I was doing well but things got away from me and I need to review the basics, etc. I am hoping to proceed to my...
  8. S&W M&P 45

    OK, all you out there who have one, what do you think? I love mine but I know there are those out there who maybe don't. It does weigh you down after a while, but that's part of what it's about - at least now. I ran about 200 rounds through mine last weekend, it worked great!
  9. As if...

    ...you needed to have proof of what some people who want to prove what idiots they are, here you go. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJRCgEH_eow The last is classic - waving a pistol around being all tough boy (and yes, F***ing stupid as well) - when it goes off because it's loaded there's the...
  10. Clint moments

    OK... We ALL know Clint Eastwood was awesome and he ruled. I grew up with his movies and I wanted to ask... What's your favorite Clint Eastwood moment? I love the scene in Pale Rider where he beats the s*** out of a bunch of thugs and says 'nothing beats a good piece of hickory.' But this...
  11. Owning the media

    Apologies if it is a dupe, but great to see a moonbat get owned... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H3R7Jvm6mnQ
  12. Has anyone seen this/tried this (Mosin-Nagant ammo)?

    I was at the local Second Amendment emporium and I saw a box of 7.62 "Nagant" rounds (sorry I forget who puts them out - it was a blue box). Has anyone tried these in a Mosin? I think it was 68 grain...? I don't need M-N ammo, but I saw them and I looked. I think they were about $32 a box for...
  13. Winchester 1300

    Has anyone had any experience with the Winchester 1300? Looks nice, just wondering if anyone else has tried one. I can sight along it pretty well which is a plus. I tried a Saiga and I think it was a little too short to get a good sight picture. Just wondering what y'all think!
  14. UV-5R CN Names

    *crackle* Hey now! I just got a Baufeng UV-5R and ran the software on my PC to program station/repeaters into the radio. The station frequencies stick, but not the CN-Names. I programmed the Andover, Westford and Paxton receivers but they only show the frequencies, not the station names. I did...
  15. Cleaning products for a .45 SA!

    I want to get a Bore Snake for my M&P .45 It has a bunch of carbon buildup on the slide, a lot of which I have removed. Does anyone have recommendations for cleaning stuff for .45's? I am going shopping tomorrow for some .45 cleaning supplies, as well as some additional ammo! :) Anything I...

    Here's my newly acquired M&P 45 FS
  17. .25 ammo

    Hey guys, I got two boxes of .25 PMC ammo. I can't use it so I wanted to karma it. I am not sure if anyone uses it. It was for a Beretta .25 semi and is still in the original boxes. I have 50 rounds but it doesn't do me much good so I figure I will karma it to some deserving soul who has a...
  18. Trying to ID my Mosin....

    Hey folks, I am trying to ID my Mosin based on the stamps. There is a hammer & sickle in a laurel wreath at the front of the receiver which seems indicative of a Hungarian rifle (missing the star above the hammer & sickle). There is also a triangular mark with an arrow pointing to the muzzle...
  19. Resurrection?

    OK, so I messed up the bolt of my Mosin by putting it into 'safety' and the bolt slid apart. I finally figured out how to get it right (the English manual is worse than reading the back of a milk carton). Once I got it together again it was cycling like a F***ing DREAM!! Has anyone else had this...
  20. Maine CCW permit for out of state resident

    I own property in Maine but I have a couple of questions as a "non-resident". 1) Does anyone know where I can get a copy of "LAWS RELATING TO PERMITS TO CARRY CONCEALED HANDGUNS (2005 edition)" (CAPS are printed in the permit application). 2) On Page 10 there is a "Witness Signature" line. Is...
