  1. You forget they are in the area that does Chocolate gravy on biscuits for breakfast
  2. Sitting here laughing at the .308 price while I clean my .458 SOCOM Taking that one out next trip out . That will make a few look around when they hear that put rounds downrange .
  3. Yes B5 is a company that makes buttstocks and grips . And with the ones I’ve had nice grip on for the grips and the butt stocks are good and tight with no wobble.
  4. Opps, I know that just typed it backwards Sorry for the confusion
  5. Truthfully , Some make it harder than it needs to Be . and well I earned my living depending on a AR base rifle. Was Unit weapons NCO and taught classes to other units , All based on what we learned for being deployed . Here are some thoughts on a few things and I am Not calling anyone out . But what is the main Reason behind getting a AR ? To overcome violence with overwhelming Violence . Period I wont depend on a cheap firearm . In the AR platform you have basic may Use Mil-spec Tolerances , most use Commercial tolerances and lead to more play and less accurate . For a First Time Buyer I recommend a Name Brand in the 800-1000 range , Doing This you dont need any special tools. Reasons why a midrange AR and for that I say 5.56 that allows you to run .223 you wont have to worry about running a certain ammo or not running cheap steel case ammo . There are 2 types of AR's those I would depend on in a fire fight and those I wont. In the AR platform you have basic may Use Mil-spec Tolerances , most use Commercial tolerances and lead to more play and less accurate Most fire fights will happen in the 40-75 yard range so a good Red Dot I prefer Eo Tech for more than the Basic Red Dot . Keep in mind the basic AR 5.56 round wont see past 3-400 yards MAX no need for a high Dollar scope on a AR unless its Built for that . I dont recommend a .22lr conversion , for 2 reasons 1) and goes into the the 5 P's if you need your AR and gee you left in the 22 kit and have 5.56 mags you are done . 2) a HK 416 22LR runs appx 450 and you dont have the Dirty crappy 22 round to deal with in your AR as the gas system is tailored for the 22lr. A conversion kit runs 230 ish
  6. Well as I build most of my own they are contagious For off the shelf and surprised I saw no one say one of the better one Springfield Armory the Saint is Nice good all around shooter For longer ranges I Have a ATC which in nuts on at 600 yeads Using both off the shelf 55 grain but shine using the MK 262 77 grain . Don't get into the adjustable gas systems (99.9 of those that have them don't know how to adjust them ) Do stock up on Ammo . Just a few hours I can go through 1-2 k for training 1400 today You might look into the 300 Blackout round but 55 grain 5.56 is more available and cheaper , but .300 will stop more Note you can run .233 in a 5.56chamber but not the other way around , except if it is .223 Wilde that's a in-between . I prefer chambered for 5.56 as thats what I run most of . AR10's well Different mags and well I have one in 6.5 creedmore (also the new MRGG ( Mid Range Gas Gun ) sniper rifle ) I can confirm its good out to 1000 yards . and You can do 7.62 but then ammo goes up. I am Not a Benchrest shooter I run my crap hard , full kit lets move and shoot but at 75 yards moving with a full mag dump in a few seconds .But then again 8 deployments will do that for you. This is 600 yards with a LVPO Primary arms 1-10 with 5.56 55 grain vs 77 grain Springfield Armory ATC Full mag dump in full kit Springfield Armory Saint 5.56 50-75 yards moving with EO Tech Red dot
  7. Buy as many as I want local for that price and get a discount off of that .
  8. PSD Personal Security Detachment/ Detail GRS Global Response Staff/ Solutions
  9. Wont because it goes against the anti Gun disarm the population agenda. Fact is they wouldn't even use these guys in the video for their own PSD
  10. Hardly Secret Service , just what is known to the real PSD,GRS guys as rent a hack they have very little training , run barely level 3 vest and scrub AR accessories that Grip pod LOL wont even go into the handcuff hanging in his butt These are mall cops with AR's https://www.presidentialsecuritycompany.com/certifications-and-clients
  11. I have The Thunderer 45 Colt and Lightning 32-20 No complaints on them nice little pistols
  12. Thieves broke into a police station and stole all the toilets. At this moment in time they have nothing to go on.
  13. However, the incident, dramatic video footage of which was captured at the time, makes it worthwhile to discuss an obscure feature on the aircraft: an 'auto eject' system that can engage the jet's Martin-Baker US16E ejection seat without direction under very particular circumstances. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/the-f-35b-can-eject-its-pilot-automatically
  14. Welcome to the crew then ! you showed up late to the party . Of course those that knew me from convoys in Iraq, and Afghanistan could have told you that . They would give me the freeze dried single packets of Coffee out of MRE's . I would open a couple pour into my mouth and a swig of water , in with the thermos of Coffee my KBR team always had for me .
  15. The F35 has a auto-eject seat , They have had issues for the last year but still flying https://www.military.com/daily-news/2022/08/03/f-35-ejection-seat-problem-was-discovered-3-months-ago-jets-kept-flying.html
  16. Finders keepers? Has anyone seen the lost F35? The US military is searching for a missing F-35B in South Carolina after the pilot ejected yesterday and the jet kept flying. If you have seen an F-35 in the woods, please contact the US Marines. https://www.npr.org/2023/09/18/1200093822/missing-f-35-fighter-jet-south-carolina
  17. Well the house isnt going to hit itself
  18. Somewhat true ; The WD-40 Company issued a statement Thursday saying its products would still be available in Canada under a new formulation after Ottawa imposes new restrictions on the compound used in the original formula of the hugely popular penetrating oil spray. In January 2022, details of new regulations in the Canadian Environmental Protection Act were published in the Canada Gazette, aiming to set maximum concentrations for volatile organic compounds (VOCs) — certain chemicals with boiling points low enough to allow them to exist as an atmospheric vapour at room temperature.
  19. I grew up on the 70's Country music and well A ranch kid in the 80's looking to "see the world " so Rodeo and Bulls and Hot Rods turned more into Rock with a few exceptions Chris Ledoux who was in his own league . Military n 80's in SO. Cal. meant Gazzarri's , Rainbow and Whisky depending on who was playing Most of the time when I was at Pendleton was Carl's Tavern in Vista and well that at the time no one argued with us Then last year of Marines they sent me to MCAS ElToro which at the time I had zero idea how they moved a Grunt to a Air base lol but KNAC 105.5 was always on
  20. Add this one too, Had one bar we would attend after training they loved this song . We ended up telling them never pay it again or we would find a new hoome .
