Re: AMMO. Buying, selling or nothing

I bought a G19 and built a BRN-180 at the start of this madness for the purpose of buying rather than reloading ammo. That plan immediately died, but I'm stocked on components (and just picked up a bunch of 9mm range brass). I'm saving all of my 5.56x45 brass, but I turn that into 7.62x40 cases. For...

Re: Cheaper than dirt price gouging

This behavior only stops when it is punished. We have to collectively remember and refuse to buy from them when times are good.

Re: KT: Louisville woman killed by police after serving a no knock warrant. CHL boyfriend fired at plainclothed officers

The circumstances of this tragedy are of relatively minor importance compared to the broad societal issue at hand: we send cops with guns drawn in the dead of night to citizens' homes to confiscate contraband. Breonna Taylor, the Tuttles, and innumerable other people have been and will continue to b...

Re: Teacher Spying on Student During Virtual Class Sends Cops to Search 11-Year-Old's Home After Spotting a BB Gun

It is possible for hackers to turn the camera on remotely. Agree, but that's a separate problem. If a malicious user has that level of control of your PC, then the use of your camera is the least of your problems. I prefer Fedora, though I run into the issue of most distributions working variably o...

Portland and Eugene are not Oregon. New York is a geographically red state.

Re: oh I like her!!!

The Republican party will die if it doesn't visibly offer a path to wealth and success to everyone. Today, the top 10% of earners own 87% of the securities outstanding: historically that kind of wealth imbalance has ALWAYS led to revolution. People want to be independent and hold their heads up, but...

I can always use .357 Sig, but it may be too long of a trip from Houston.

My camera is never on. If you want to see my face during a call, then we can meet in person or you can try to become a friend of family member.

Re: Which DA/SA gun would you carry?

Sig P239 in .40 S&W or Sig P232 (prefer the stainless SL, but the aluminum frame is much lighter). For the .40 I use a 200 grain XTP at 900 FPS and for the .380 I use a 115 grain XTP at 1025 FPS (both velocities clocked from my carry guns). I am rather proud of the .380 load as it replicates a weak...

Re: AMMO. Buying, selling or nothing

Shortly before COVID got big I decided that I would switch from .357 Sig which I load to factory 9mm and bought a Glock 19 for exactly that purpose. Then I went to buy ammo for it and realized that there is none. Did a similar thing with a BRN-180/Anderson lower but managed to snag two of the Arabic...

Re: US didn't need to drop the atomic bomb on Japan

I didn't know about Hirohito defying the military supreme command to surrender. That's a truly crazy story.
