Re: Franklin Armory coming out with non-NFA 11.5” AR variant

If it's a smooth bore, it becomes an SBS or AOW... Since its made to be fired from the shoulder.
My guess is fire control makes it not a rifle, but that's just speculation.

Re: Mother of dead Popeyes robber: ‘Why did he shoot him five times'

FYI: punching a reporter in the jaw can and may/will result in a visit from P.D. If you are fortunate enough to be visited by an officer over 40, with a satisfactory amount of common sense, you will not be arrested and the D.A. will decline charges and recommend that said reporter consider it a &quo...

Re: Target size to distance formula?

If you want to pull out your slide rule, the tangent of the angle is the ratio of the target height to distance. I resemble that remark. I collect and use old slipsticks, and have shown more than one fine young engineer (usually the purple variety) how to figure pump curves without an app. Still go...

Re: Show your DIY Ideas and Projects

DIY mod, Just got a new rifle case, only to discover I didnt read the fine print - it came with pluck and pull foam. Usually I throw p&p away - since it tends to fal apart as soon as you pull a square. Finances being what they are I did some research. PLASTI-DIP once you get your case cut out, g...

Re: Annoying Trends.

I've worn square toed boots most of my adult life...when you get into EEEE territory it's normal. Flat caps, and the equally annoying 'low profile' caps belong in the dumpster along with tofurkey and nearbeer. What really sets my teeth on edge is the "tacticool" everything. Black paint doe...

Re: Fayette County Clerk Office`

Taylor county is the same way, first floor is clerk and records. Actual court rooms are on upper floors. I was there this a.m. to file an easement and was discussing this very subject with the deputy running the metal detector. We agree it is a violation of both the spirit and letter of the law, jus...

The 3300, original infidel was my favorite. I gave to a very fine young man for his graduation from training prior to deployment.

Re: Benchmade Auto OTF knife

I have a few of them. 3300, 3320; 4600.
They are all equally solid. Less blade play than my microrech- although in my experience; all otf knives have some degree of movement.

Re: Do you ride a motorcycle, what kind and how do you carry

Used to, but been without a bike for a few years although i still ride friends bikes occasionally for cruises- my birthday present to myself in a few weeks will be a bobbed 09 sportster with 1200 conversion. Carry will be exactly the same as everywhere else - 3:30 inside or outside 'casual concealed'

Re: Be Careful About Wearing A Shirt One Size Larger Than Normal

Duluth polos 99 percent of the time. It's the only shirt I can wear in a large, everything else has to be XL.

Early arrival

First grand son, second grandkid arrived a few days ago - a month early. Little bugger is putting up a good fight, eating well but not regulating temp yet. If you have an extra moment, he could use a good word with the man with the plan, as could his mom who is having more than her own fair share of...

Re: Carry in a courtroom

As laid back as my country county is, I still have it in writing- signed by the judge, with a copy in my employee file. Not something I want to second guess or play the aww shucks card on. If it's not in writing it did not happen, if it is in writing it might have happened but you better have duplic...
