Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

A judge denied the VCDL and GOA injunction against Gov Blackface - they're now taking it to the VA State Supreme Court.

Re: suppressor

What I don't know about suppressor construction would fill volumes. What is needed in addition to the kits in your link? Chas. Apart from the Form 1 paperwork mentioned by others, a relevant muzzle-device. For example, I took the .22 suppressor (which is threaded for the .22 standard of 1/2"×28 thr...

Re: suppressor

I bought the .22 can as a kit from https://quietbore.com/product-category/solvent-traps/ The 30-cal I have, I built using parts from various suppliers (who may or may not still exist, but it should give you an idea what I used) - details in post #13 here: https://www.texaschlforum.com/viewtopic.php?...

Privateer Leather - Cutlass

I asked Wes at Privateer Leather to make me one of his Cutlass holsters for my oddball CZ75B SA (odd in that it has the CZ85-style ambi slide-stop too). www.privateerleather.com Beautifully crafted - the shaping, boning, stitching etc is flawless; I'm super-impressed and comms with Wes throughout we...

Re: New Gun Range The Colony ‘RifleGear’

I'm more interested in seeing their range rules - what ammo they'll disallow, rapid-fire rules, etc.

Re: Building an electric guitar from kit

Frets were reshaped then polished with sandpapers from 220- to 2,000-grit. Final polish done with Brasso (and I remember that ammoniac smell from Basic - yuck).

Soldering the pickups and selector switch will be next.

Re: Building an electric guitar from kit

The rest of today is reserved for getting the frets done, so here's a little progress - a few things going on here: https://i.imgur.com/dV4Mclb.jpg 1. The black lines are where the frets are high and need to be sanded down with the stone. To check for high frets, I used a fret-rocker: https://i.imgu...

Re: The war with Iran

Does this mean the United States won't complain when Iran targets US political leaders in response? They've targeted ALL Americans for decades, so it makes zero difference. Iran just put an $80-million bounty on Trump's head - do you really think we give a ... darn? I'm no war-monger, having been i...
