    Pretty sure he means kids instead of slaves. LOL. But he should probably be careful saying that phrase out in public.

    Anybody ever bought anything from www.lockedloaded.com?

    They have some pretty good deals on Pmags, but I’d like to know if they’re G2G before placing my order.

    SOG knives on Woot.com

    SOG Knives

    Woot seems to have no made up rule to not ship assisted knives to MA, unlike their parent Amazon.

    MTM/Case-Gard makes good products.

    I would consider these MTM/Case-Gard plastic "50 Cal" ammo boxes to be a good deal at the regular $9.99

    But they are a steal on sale at $7.99 shipped Prime.
    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003TNV46O/

    Those are the green colored ones, I prefer the black, but green is what is on sale now.

    I have loads of GI M2A1 surplus metal boxes which I use for long term storage and use these plastic boxes in a supporting role.

    That being said these make a good seal, plus due to the domed lid hold more than a GI can will, they have two lock holes, and if stored in a climate control environment where the greater thermal expansion of polypropylene vs steel is not a concern then they are a viable alternative to GI boxes.

    You can pack them with 30 lbs of ammo and when picked up they do not flex or feel less than sturdy. Although I would not go swinging them around to test that.

    Like I said good deal at $10 better at $8.

    In this photo there are four cartridge boxes laying flat on the bottom below the ones standing on end, for a total of 20 boxes (1000 rounds).

    Those look awful like the poor-fitting Howard Leights. Although at $19, they're a better deal.

    It's bad when the HL's on a vendor webpage can't grip a dummy's head.

    Don't worry. No sound comes from below.

    Those are quite good, or they use to be, not for real big caliper by themselves, a little lacking in total DB kill.
    sound quality is good, batteries last forever.
    add foam ear plugs and good to go for AR and larger.
    I turn up volume to counteract using ear plugs,
    seems to respond the to shot well.
    worth $50

    add they should have jack and are stereo to boot

    Woot is an amazon company. Amazon won’t ship any kind of knife to MA. I used to buy kershaw scallions from them but I can’t anymore.

    It is actually 'spring assisted' knifes that Amazon will not ship, and as I pointed out in that post they are apparently not applying that "made up rule" to Woot.

    Actually I just checked. The Kershaw is NOT a spring assisted knife but does have a thumb-assist peg. Amazon will not ship it to MA.

    When I looked at a couple of "regular" pocket knives (mostly Buck folding knives) they would ship them to MA.

    I was under the impression that one of the features of a Kershaw 'Scallion' was their "SpeedSafe® Assisted Opening".
    Scallion, Frame Lock |  Kershaw Knives

    Here is a video with a cut-away view of the spring in action...



    In any event Woot is apparently GTG.
