  1. What's new in this club
  2. February 14th, 2018 19 year old Nikolas Cruz took an Uber to Stoneman Douglas High School, carried a duffle bag and backpack inside, and you know the rest. He pulled the fire alarm and started shooting into crowds of kids, then he dropped the gun, escaped by blending in with the other students running for their lives, and... well... He went to a Subway Store inside the local Walmart - Then he got some McDonalds - School Security Cameras and eyewitness accounts revealed his identity though, and he was taken into police custody where he quickly confessed to the crime. The moment the shooting occured both sides jumped to their battle stations, with the left calling for gun control and the right calling for "waiting until more information comes out" Keep your eye on that - "waiting until more information comes out" That will be important later on. --------------------------------------------- February 14th was the shooting - CNN had a Townhall on February 21st - It was the Witnesses to the shooting demanding gun control vs Marco Rubio & Dana Loesh, fending off those attacks. The Townhall doesn't really matter, because it was 90% emotion, 10% serious discussion. What does matter is WHO was at the TownHall. Sheriff Scott Israel, the leader of the Broward County Police Force. Any questions about the shooting, he'll be there to answer. Here's what he said: > "I have 39 years in Law Enforcement" (39 years of failure) > "Lets do something different" > "Give Police more power" > "We need to Expand the Baker Act" (Gun Seizure off SUSPICION of mental illness) > Elaborates to say, Police should have the discretion to remove guns from random people > And not based on mental health, but on police choice on how you feel about a certain person. > (Pushes the world to vote in democrats) > Don't let 18 year olds have guns > If ever someone ever is taken in for psychological evaluation ever - they should never be allowed to have guns "forever" And he was also very hostile towards the NRA, saying its either ban everything except pistols or you do not stand with the victims - quote (Scott Israel is on record in the past saying that only pistols should be allowed, if that) "I understand you're standing up for the NRA and I understand that's what you're supposed to do - But you just told this group of people that you are standing up for them. You're not standing up for them until you say, ‘I want less weapons.’ " And so on and so forth. The key fact of note is that he wants police officers - without a judge or psychiatrist - Just police officers, to have the ability to randomly confiscate guns. This was February 21st 2018 Two days later, February 23rd, information comes out that DESTROYS the current narrative. Lets call it, D Day. So what happened between February 14th and February 23rd? https://youtu.be/6c3ch9W-hdg

    I went through a revolver phase. I was trying to buy as many as I could. I just sold the last of my 44's. Probably should not have done that. I got plenty of .357's to make up for it though. 😆

    Lately, I find myself drifting back to wheelguns. You might look at Ruger's new offerings. Like the Redhawk in 10mm.

    Don’t believe I would have anything bad to say about the 10mm. It is a good deer round. I am not a glock guy but have thought about grabbing one. Though the para elite hunter would be more to my liking.

    Now that is an intriguing choice! More than ample power for stewpot meat and dare I say probably medium sized game like whitetail within reasonable range. And obviously self defense. Not exactly CCW material. But like you say, when it's folded... Would you believe I've never touched off a 10mm? I well remember the storm when Norma came out with the original loading and almost went into hock to buy a Bren Ten.

    Kriss Vector in 10mm. Folded up it is small. I can fit it into a milspec adapt pack with 4- 30 round mags, 4 -15 round mags. I walk into church this way sometimes . No one is the wiser except the security team. Unfolded it is very accurate even at greater distances. No recoil, can throw a pvs14 behind it for nighttime. Remove the stock with one pin and attach the QD with a bungee sling and it fits under your coat. 10mm because the ballistics are good. Easy to reload as long as you got brass. .40 sw is a neutered 10mm so there are plenty of bullets around. Can feed it up to 220 grain.

    @BadBrad Too many variables, dude! You, yourself must choose the one and only firearm you're allowed to have. Be it a Barrett .50 or a NAA .22LR. Personally, I want something for in the home, in the vehicle, on the street, and out in the field. And in lieu of the 6" barrel, I'd go for a stainless 5.5" Redhawk. If I found myself having to fight off multiple attackers, I'd say I was somewhere I didn't belong...and snatch up whatever I could from a fallen blue helmet. 'Cause you know they're gonna be the invading horde! 😜

    That is a tough question because one size does not fit all. It's like having one golf club. It can be done but it can be a major challenge. Am I a militia man running around after the SHTF? Or a private citizens who minds his own business in a city environment? In any case, I like simple combat proven items that work well in about any environmental conditions. For a civilian, I would go with a .38 special revolver, 4 inch barrel, no fancy items especially adjustable sights and lights, and whistles. If I had to use it to fight multiple bad actors, I would grab an AK-47 with an under folding stock. Chambered for short Russian 30. Something I could toss into the car, keep around the house, or have a sling and keep it hidden under a coat. Like they did in Iraq after the 1st Gulf War!
  10. If you were limited to one gun, what would it be? And why? I lean towards a .44mag revolver w/6" barrel. .44mag to put food on the table and .44spl for home defense.

    AR Mags

    TBH, I'd never heard of Amend until you guys mentioned the brand. But good to know somebody's had experience with them. Heh heh...Rit dye. Who knew? I've used Dcoat before on a little CZ83 with pretty good results.
  12. FrontFacingRear

    AR Mags

    The Amend mags are fine. They use a good spring that you can leave loaded. I bought dozens of them last year for 4 bucks a piece when everything was in abundance. They do have some flashing on them, not as nice as Lancer or pmag. Check gun.deals and wikiarms.com you can pick up pmags cheaper if you are quick. You can dye your sand colored pmags with Rit dye if you don’t Duracoat.

    AR Mags

    Exactly! Plus you can never have too many mags! That is the site I usually go to for mags. You can find some pretty good deals from time to time.
  14. COBO Member

    AR Mags

    Go to Gun Mag Warehouse and search 30rd P-Mags. Granted, they're sand colored. But I just picked up 3 more Gen3, 30rd P-Mags for $8.99ea. The $7.99 shipping bites. But as you mentioned, "current climate", I view them as an investment. There's no telling what they'll go for in a year.

    AR Mags

    I just ran across this an email that I got today from Ammunition Depot. I thought this was worth mentioning given the current climate. I haven’t checked too many prices but seems to be a pretty reasonable price for 30 round P-mag Gen 2 is 10.99 and Gen 3 is 11.99. They also have a brand called Amend, haven’t used or researched yet that is 9.95. They also have 6 packs for all brands pretty reasonable as well. https://www.ammunitiondepot.com/445-ar15-magazines-223556

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    Thank you! I’m will definitely check it out.

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    Where do I start? I'd just go to the RCBS website http://rcbs.com/ and look at all the items they include in their kits. There's a few things you could get elsewhere but some things need to be specifically for reloading. And above all, a good reloading manual.

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    I’m looking to getting into reloading. A co-worker gave me a RCBS single stage press. Any recommendations on the other supplies? I’m just starting out so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  19. FrontFacingRear

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    I either sold or gave away my other presses and wished I would have bought a Dillon from the start. Just for the time saved, that alone is worth it.
  20. FrontFacingRear

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    Can’t go wrong with a blue press. You will save time and frustration. Progressive I use Blue. Single stage the Rock Chucker Supreme. Grafs.com

    Reloader Advice Needed!

    Been thinking long and hard about a progressive press. Looked at Dillon tonight and can't believe how prices have gone up! I used to roll my own with an RCBS single stage so I'm not a complete noob. But I need some input on what's out there from any of you currently pulling the lever. In the meantime, I'm hitting the usual stores to see about buyin' some boolits.

    Holy shit at that price. You were saying it's all about the mags.... Go get some 😗
  23. COBO Member

    AR Mags

    Going back thru threads and finally went to gunmagwarehouse. P-Mag Gen3 30rd on sale for $8.99! And that's not a bulk price! Almost bit off on some ProMags for the High Power but seems I've heard bad news about them along the way.
  24. Oregonian

    For The Love of Revolvers

    Solid advice. Seen this guy with a revolver?
  25. Oregonian

    Important Future Purchases!

    Great advice brother. Cant have enough mags....thats the truth. A bug out will be alot harder than a bug in regarding carry mags, ammo, supplies etc.... Have a decent pile at home and instead of bugging out....consider a "get home" bag.
