Re: 308 bolt gun or 308 AR

IMO I would get a bolt gun. I have an AK 308 (Saiga), AR-10, and a Ruger M-77 in .308. I love shooting the AK, it is so smooth and easy to shoot. However, it is heavy as frigg and just not viable for hunting. The AR platform is great, but in 308 it just isn't that fun to shoot. It would probably do ...

Re: Civilian Markmanship Program

I'm with C-dub on this.

I plan on trying to purchase one. I have been holding on to $1200 from my 2017 bonus just for this. The service grade at $1000 seems decent. I really wanted a WWII era and maybe I will get lucky.

Looking at GunBroker these prices seem in line with the market.

Re: Motorcyclist Crashes and shoots self

Just like most people here say there are very few if any "Guns that accidentally went off", I would say "Almost" all motorcycle accidents are the motorcyclists fault. I ride as much as I can and the things I see other motorcyclists do is beyond me. Even cars turning left in front of bikes alot of ti...

Re: Laptop display problem

It might work on Windows 7. Just boot up the laptop with the external monitor connected. Give it enough time to full boot, then hit Windows + P. There are multiple options Extend, Duplicate, External only. So hit the P, 1/2/3 times and see if anything happens. FYI, if you use Outlook for your email,...

Re: Stop The Bleed - free medical training

FYI

Their search kinda sucks. I would recommend just searching all Texas listings. The Zip code/range feature doesn't work.

Re: Toyota Dealership

I know you said Dallas area but I wanted to give a shout out to Charles Maund Toyota in Austin. They are one of the biggest and best Toyota dealerships in the country. They are a client of my place of employment but I have no stake in this race. I just think as far as dealerships go they are pretty ...

Re: Crypto-currencies

I have to say, I think that most of this is a ponzi scheme. The fact that fees keep going up means the the currency is already losing its potency as a fiat replacement. The only benefit you get now is anonymity which is not going to be enough. People don't want to pay the fees. Plus it is going to g...
