  2. British LT Bayonets Taliban, receives Military Cross

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/afghanistan/6178044/British-officer-wins-two-gallantry-awards-for-fending-off-Taliban-attack-with-bayonet.html Not sure it gets much more badass than that. Well done, sir.
  3. First Globe editorial I agree with

    Due in no small part to the fact that it's not gun-related, or even particularly political, the Globe is actually right here. That bit about a stopped clock being right twice a day is true, i guess...
  4. .223 vs 5.56mm chamber

    No, this is NOT the [horse] "what's the difference?" I recently bought a second-hand homebuilt AR, and discovered that the barrel is made for .223 and NOT 5.56mm. From what I understand, the major issue with the higher-pressure load is that the .223 has a shorter gap before the rifling...
  5. Hale Mountain Fish and Game, Bennington, VT

    Anyone know anything about this club? My gf goes to school at Bennington, and I'd like to go shooting with her when I go up to visit. They have a website, but it has no useful information. Any members here who can provide info?
  6. Carrying and using the head

    OK, so I've seen posts on how to avoid printing and how to avoid looking like you're carrying by not touching/fiddling with the carry gun, but one issue occured to me. What do you do when you're carrying, and you need use a public toilet? The open bottom of the stall would seem to offer a...
  7. Girlfriend and guns

    Apologies if this has beaten to death already...[horse] My new girlfriend is a hippy, but not an anti-gun one (really likes the idea of me shooting, but that's neither here nor there...). She's cool with me liking guns and owning them, but I have not yet told here I carry when I'm home. We...
  8. Custom wood grips?

    Mods, please move if this is not the right section. I wasn't sure where it should go. Does anyone know of a company that sells wooden grips for Sig pistols? And/or any company that will do custom engraving for said grips? My class at the Coast Guard Academy is looking in to getting engraved...
  9. Open-carrying an empty handgun in car?

    I might drive up to NH to visit some buddies over the long weekend, and was planning on open-carrying while I was there as I do not yet have a CCW permit valid in NH (odd that they don't accept MA permits). I know I can't have a loaded gun in my car, but rather than unholster, unload, and...
  10. Great Christmas Gift

    Got a call this morning from the Medfield police, and I am now the proud owner of a shiny new Unrestricted LTC-A![banana][rockon] Boxing day will probably be spent shopping.
  11. CNN: Pilot's holsters make guns vulnerable to accidental discharge

    http://www.cnn.com/2008/TRAVEL/12/02/tsa.holster/index.html They don't show the holster, but it's one of the most ridiculous ideas I've seen. Since the TSA hates the idea of armed pilots, they only trust them with their weapons unlocked when actually in the cockpit. When they use the toilet...
  12. Paratrooper M-1 Carbine?

    Would it be legal to put a repro paratrooper stock on an M-1 carbine? On the one hand, it's a pistol grip, detachable mag, and folding stock, but on the other hand, one could argue that it's not actually a pistol grip, but the world's only design for a folding thumbhole stock. Any sound advice...
  13. Moving with post-ban AR

    If someone were to move to Massachusetts with a post-ban AR, AK, or other Evil Black Rifle that was legally purchased in another state, is that legal? Is it like handguns that aren't on the list, where posession is still legal, or would they have to dispose of said EBR prior to entering the...
