Re: The race for Speaker of the Texas House

Confirmed as Speaker.

I assume its about two months late to email him encouraging a Republican to be put in charge of any committee that may get gun bills.

Re: The Stolen Election, Part One: AMERICAN PRAVDA

Welcome to how Communists (yes, really) work; I've lived through this before In South Africa. Not to be preachy or patronizing, but we all really need to understand in our souls that the other side has no interest in fairness, freedom or democracy - only gaining power, PERIOD. That's it. The Left c...

They do work together.

To keep themselves in power and in charge.

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

The main reason why I have not yet invested in a plate carrier and plates:E1C27CEE-B1FF-498A-8FC5-F589F0165C70.jpeg I can barely stand the weight of my shoulder holster or my lightweight chest rig. Heck, I can’t walk to my car without considerable pain. There’s no way in hades that I can bear the w...

Re: If you started over carrying a firearm

I’ve done it all since I started. 1911s, Glocks, wheel guns, most every thing in between. So much focus is spent by so many people on equipment instead of the important Stuff. I did it wrong too, so if I was starting over I’d want to do it right this time. I’d pick a reliable gun. Insert whatever yo...

Re: Rattle can paint job

I’ve been contemplating doing this to one of my carbines.....but I’m lazy, so it remains in the contemplative stage. :lol: If it helps you make the leap, I spent maybe 2 hours on this, including waiting time between coats. Best advice I got was someone who said the gun he spent the absolute most ti...

I’ll probably experiment a couple more times with cheap builds, and if I like the results it might be time to rattle can the nice SBR.

Rattle can paint job

Picked up a used Geissele MK 4 rail a while back. First owner had worn down the finish to make it look "battle worn", second owner spray painted it grey to cover up first guys....artistry. Because it was spray painted, I got a great deal on it. And since it was already spray painted, I fig...

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

Took some pictures to answer a question on another forum and thought I'd come back to this one with a few extra thoughts. Two ways to do things: 1) Traditional molle attachment system. Secure, but can be a pain to get set up initially, not super customizable once it's set up. 2) Velco/buckle attachm...

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

As @rafe said, if the situation gets that extreme I'll have more trouble on my hands than the weight of my kit- That being said, I've been looking myself for some months, but my reason really is just for range use with new students... There are two situations extreme enough I'm putting on armor. 1)...

Re: Anybody bought body armor? Thinking about it....

I started out doing the AR500 route. Then I never trained in it, shot in it or used it because my plate carrier with 4 mags, med kit and 2 heavy steel plates in it was 30 lbs. :shock: Spend the small amount of extra it takes to go Hesco from the beginning and get a PC you'll actually wear and train ...

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

Someone was selling HK style diopter sights for AR height rails a few years ago.

Can’t remember who made them and they don’t make them anymore. Glad I picked up a couple sets of them. I like diopters.

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

Neat layout and use of the SIg 320 chassis system but man paying a $200 tax stamp on top of that is hard to swallow. It always is, because it shouldn't be a thing. I've been having a lot of fun posting this picture with the caption "Here is a picture of a rifle and a pistol" lately. :bigg...

Re: Pistol Caliber Carbine Roundup

To each his own, but I just don’t understand adding all the extraneous stuff to what appears to be a handy, concealable pistol. O’course, I drive a Jeep Wrangler with a never-used winch, high-lift jack, and CB radio. But that’s different. To give options and capability that both a handy, concealabl...
