  1. But there is this consistency here.... buddy's....friend;s place mom's place, a trailer, roomie's apartment. So there is a protocol to all of this, I guess. Not seeing MY place, MY apartment, MYroom, MY trailer, etc. etc.
  2. I've used the 80percentarms jig, but I think that one is proprietary to their .308 lowers. I've used the Modulus arms universal jig in .223, also. Both worked well, but I'd go with Modulus for the universal design. I admit it, I'm a ghost fan. Yes, mine can bite! And they go bang every time I pull the trigger. Ghosts might be a bit spendy, but the jigs I've used have been used by multiple builders for multiple weapons. Spread the cost if you can. Cheaper jigs are available, but are in my opinion, from what I've seen, crap.

  4. I needed some good news today. Way to go, soldier! Toasty!
  5. Funny. Dang funny. Hard to believe that many guys are carrying concealed........ ya know they're packin'.................
  6. Amen to that. And we never will.
  7. Story makes me sad...but we fight back. My son is the one who infected me with black rifle disease. His son, age 9, asked me to help him build an AR. And, of course, I did. Built some wonderful memories, talked about a lot of "stuff". BTW, it takes longer to build one if you are teamed up with a 9-year-old. We have to pass along the legacy. And will have to fight back.
  8. Somebody should kick Obummer in the nuts twice - once for the rifles, once for the carbines. No reason these couldn't be brought back either private dealer or CMP or both. And it pisses me off that ROK can reap a gold mine out of these if they were, in fact, paid for by U.S. taxpayers.
  9. All true. The question that will need to be answered is, if they want to grandfather the existing AR's, do you register, or bury a couple of them? If doing a hidey-gun or two, it likely should be a ghost. But you are correct; no doubt they can find me, search me, beat my ass, steal the contents of my gun safe and house. Should that occur, I likely won't be the first one nailed. But there will be a war, I think. There were shootings over the range land thing. Do the government types think it would be less so if they took away guns? Scary future, I think.
  10. Nobody with a pulse believes Hil or Bummer would torch off a nuke. But, it's worse than that! I hope you all feel so much more secure today! Because, today POSOTUS stated unequivocally that we will NEVER accept North Korea as a nuclear power. Apparently this azzhole is so damn stupid that he can't realize that they ARE a nuclear power. Guessing Kim-3 isn't exactly shaking in his little high-heeled boots. God help us!
  11. Yeah, what Sketch said. Paper this AM says our piss-ant WA-state attorney general wants to ban "assault weapons" and limit mags to 10 rounds. The current motivation for this was the recent teenage-love-gone-bad shooting by a jilted young lover. Three dead and one wounded. A tragedy, for certain, but basic math says the high capacity magazines were not the problem. But the a-turd-nee general is going to introduce legislation. Story is, existing AR's would be grandfathered. My guess is that's just a way to register firearms, so they can take them later. Now IF a guy was one of those crazy gun nuts who builds rifles....and IF he was prone to work a little bit harder and do 80% rifles...and IF he was to associate with smart guys who could give him advice along the way....I'm just sayin'. Guess I'll check my Rolodex and see if I know any of those crazy wild-eyed gun nut types. GHOST GUNS RULE!
  12. Howdy and welcome from another Washington guy.
  13. And by "thong" I clearly was referring to the foot wear, not underwear....... Let's maintain a little fashion sense here.....
  14. Exactly! And don't go blaming the victim, either. That slinky sequined low-cut cocktail dress, no matter how cute, is NOT an excuse. The thong, either....
  15. This gets complicated.... Then, by extension, and considering your original comments,and proposed wager, did 98 somehow win the argument you had with yourself? Astounding!
  16. Likely there's a limit as to how many you can turn in.......so maybe you make them, send me a few, and I turn them in, and we split the profits.... Oh, no, can't do that....wouldn't that make me a straw SELLER?
  17. Wait, did you just lose an argument to your self?
  18. Damn articles raise questions they don't answer. New rules! The courts, the krauts and H-K all have to begin playing by our forum rules. Pics or it didn't happen! I'd like to see close up photos of the parts in question, just for funs.

    Revolver help

    I've had a lot of revolvers and my current favorite wheel gun is a Taurus .44 mag. Fun, not self defense. But I do enjoy wheel guns, always have. Sometimes it's a physical limitation that makes the choice for you. Due to physical limitations, and arthritis in her hands, wifey can't rack a slide and can't now deal with heavy recoil. And she is never going to love shooting, either. But she will defend herself or the family. Has done it with a Blackhawk .357 magnum, many years ago. (home break-in - end result, didn't need to pull the trigger). Her current go-to is a Ruger SP101 in .32 Fed Mag. She can shoot that double or single action, can hit a target up close. It's the best we're gonna do. Cool part is we can drop down to .32 H&R mag, and for range work, down to .32 S&W Long. Around home, of course, there are other options....
  20. The article I quoted above may be a little shaky..... They are saying the polymer composite barrel holder (whatever the hell that is) causes the problem. They also say that it starts to soften at 23 degrees celsius....which is about 74 degrees Fahrenheit, I think. That sounds wrong. And they claim 50 cm of impact change after 60 rounds of ammo, at 200 meters, which is about 20 inches, give or take. That's a lot. You'd think somebody along the way might have realized mounting a barrel in "plastic" just ain't a good idea. I'm a long way from an expert, but I'm comparing this to the questions and answers and comments I've seen here about barrels, barrel nuts, different uppers, fitment, barrel nut lubes, etc. etc. Maybe the kraut procurement guys should have been reading this forum........
  21. Here's some pretty good info on how bad the problem is. http://www.dw.com/en/heckler-koch-g36-the-rifle-held-in-all-the-wrong-places/a-18402772 I don't understand the use of the term "suspended fire" in the article. I'm assuming they mean extended or continuous or fully automatic fire. Also hard to figure why you might build a rifle that fires full automatic, then say it shouldn't be used full automatic. Where is Henry Gibson ("Laugh-In") when you need him? Nazi helmet....."Vellly interesting...."
  22. You are so right. In my case one to Alzheimer's, also one to dementia. This evil thing is like losing your loved ones not once, but repeatedly.
  23. OK, first one to find a buy-back has to notify the other...OK? I got one of those junk ass 710's also.
  24. But shepp, jeez, if they only save one life, or prevent one injury...(you could drop that fake gun on your foot), it's all worth it.. Now c'mon, don't ya feel all warm and fuzzy and a whole lot safer? No? lmao $25000 up in smoke.
