    Ammo Pricing Fall

    My consternation is that 8mm mauser just plain vanished, along with most reasonably priced 6.8 SPC. And I can't buy the 9mm projectiles I compete with for love nor money (124g powdercoated). I've got some decent defensive 12ga, but the #4 buck has ceased to exist as well - it's been the...

    SC Constitutional Carry and Open Carry

    I've always thought it ridiculous that I can't carry a gun at the gun range. FFS people. The ranger even pushed back against my friend carrying - who is an active deputy sheriff - until we had a chat with him.

    Legal Question

    Believe it or not most SWAT/ERT officers don’t know as much about their guns as you’d think. They’re issued a thing, if there’s problems they take it to the unit armorer. They spend way more time training with what they’re given rather than personally owned arms.

    What grain are the known .308s? Edit: n/m I see 150 and 180. Do you know what the Hornady is?

    Favorite Shotgun

    I've got a High Standard semi-auto from the late 60s that needs some TLC - that might be a really good goose gun when it's working.

    Favorite Shotgun

    Just picked up a Turkish clone of the Benelli M4, and I have to say, I'm a big fan so far. Over 100 rounds of mixed bird, 00 buck, and slugs with very few hitches - some failures to fire in the first 10 rounds or so (basically burning off the packing grease). Need to figure out what to do...

    SOLD: Mosin Type 53 with Russian stock and original stock $300

    It could be refinished, for sure. Wet sanding and BLO can bring many a dead-ish stock back to life. I just don't think they're solid enough (they are super light). Either way - it is shootable without the upper handguard in the russian stock, and you can have all the parts that are with/from...

    Ccw ammo

    124 HST. Got lucky enough to stockpile some when it was easily available in law enforcement-labeled 50-round packs for cheap. Look into barrier tests - Critical Duty is better than Critical Defense, and Golden Saber is better than either. Not that Hornady makes a 'bad' round, per se.

    Legal Question

    "Shall not be infringed" can turn quickly into "Get on the grouBANG BANG". Just... know your environment, and read the crowd (if there's any). I regularly carry a rifle when hiking the App trail or other trails in western SC/NC... as a bear deterrent. Never had a ranger give me issue - most...

    Ccw ammo

    I have a 9-year old, and can't afford a safe for every room. I've seen what mischief she can do, there's no way I'm leaving an unsecured firearm out - and that's WITH her knowing and following the Eddie Eagle rules since 4 or so. OK OK, the Arisaka and Carcano sit out in my office - without any...

    Ccw ammo

    I did not - many reasons come to mind. First, when the alarm went off I was in a hurry, and being in the garage (which only has guns in pieces, usually) and a house away from my gunsafe / bedroom nightstand safe I used what I could grab. Only other option was the hotrod 10/22 but that's in...
