Re: WWII M1 Carbines for sale soon?

As silly as it may sound I always wanted a M1 Carbine in .357 Mag It would have been an interesting variation, although I think that it’s better suited for the .30 carbine cartridge due to the rebated rim. Also, .30 Carbine power from the rifle's 18” barrel is comparable to or slightly better than ...

I haven’t seen it mentioned, but it’s a good question—particularly since holster carry is specified for licensed open carry.

Re: TX: all our wind turbines are obsolete

Chernobyl melt down was during a safety test to see if they could safely shut down the plant using the inertia of the rotating turbine. They couldn't. If you haven't seen the HBO docudrama, I would recommend it. They make these relatively small generators that are used only during peak demand. Appa...

Re: TX: all our wind turbines are obsolete

A few weeks ago, I ran across this video from the Practical Engineering YouTube channel, on the failure of the Texas power grid this winter. He appears to address the issue free of any particular ideology, and sticks merely to the facts of what happened and an engineering analysis of it. It’s instru...

Re: If you had the carry choice

I’m retired……..but like a lot of retired people, I still work. :mrgreen:

I still carry a G19 about 95% of the time. Most of the other 5%, I carry a G43.

Re: The Reddit short squeeze

I don't mind shady actors being shady....there isn't really a way to prevent it. What I cannot stand is the government stepping in to put us on the hook for their losses when the tide goes out. Clinton, Bush 2, Obama, Trump: their policies were indistinguishable. Put the taxpayer on the hook for st...

Re: A quick review of the Rare Breed "forced reset" trigger

If I had the means to pay cash only, I’d get one.....just to salt away for CW2. But given my best guess that the fedgov’t is going to make the bumpstock ban permanent, AND find a way to outlaw binary triggers, I’m guessing that they’ll hammer this nail flat too. But if there were a way to acquire on...

Re: Danger, Will Robinson

The problem with TAM's anecdote is that the vast majority of people, regardless of where they come from, who desire to carry concealed will tend to be conservative.
