Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

I'm not on the panic train, but I absolutely do not know what the best answer is to balance the economic risks and the medical risks. I posted a couple of days ago about the 1998 PBS episode of American Experience on the 1918 influenza pandemic. I'll say again, I think it's worth a look: https://ww...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

Platinum, no offense but your post is pretty ridiculous. There is more I want to write but I’ll leave it alone. None taken. I was hoping to generate discussion of things I have been hearing daily in my profession. I am former Military and current Airline Transport Pilot. Please dissect my post and ...

Re: Corona Virus (COVID-19)( SARS-CoV-2) from China: Its going to be bad.

I realize this whole China Virus is a huge deal. I know a great many people have already died and many more are and will be infected. And... know I will catch a lot of flak/grief for this post. But.... Are we really willing to sacrifice the health (no pun intended) or even the viability of our great...

Re: Zombie Killer

My main AR is on the heavy side. Mainly due to the barrel (20" heavy) and the large optic on top. Not my first choice for roaming a field, but perfect for a fixed position (hog stand) and taking accurate shots across wide fields. I'd not intended that, but the barrel availability at the time drove ...

Zombie Killer

I have had a couple of factory AR15 platforms over the years (Armalite and Bushmaster). Recently, I decided to build my own, with every part of my own choosing and own assembly. We have all seen the AR15 with every part possible hanging from a picatinny, mlok, keymod, rail. Although all of those thi...

Sig P938

I am considering the SigSaur P938 for Concealed Carry. Does anyone on the board have experience with the model? I know we will have debate on Hammer Fire VS Striker Fired. Any input from the group would be helpful before I make this somewhat expensive purchase. Thanks!
