Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: BAR opinions

The BAR didn't play well with the volcanic ash on Iwo Jima. Neither did the M1 Garand. Bolt action Arisakas had the advantage there. Hector I would be really interested in some details of this.. Many thanks for this... My dad was in the 3rd Marine Division, 9th Regiment, 2nd Battalion and landed on...

Re: California stocking up on ammunition

Sounds like you will now have to get drugs and ammo on the street corner- a new sales market for criminals :roll: :roll: :roll: Maybe bullets will become a new form of cash on the street, like a sheet paper in the movie Waterworld?? I've been saying for some time that, in event of societal collapse...

Re: Battle of Midway movie

I hope it's done well. The U.S. Navy pretty much crushed the Japanese to gain control of the Pacific. Big turning point in the war.

Re: JFK

I once heard it summed up like this, "We have the conspiracy theories because people cannot believe that someone as consequential as John F. Kennedy could be killed by someone as inconsequential as Lee Harvey Oswald." There was a documentary on The Discovery Channel a couple of years ago where they ...

Re: Lights / flashlights, headlights & lanterns

We used to have a Bushnell outlet store just a mile from my house so temptation was near. To make matters worse, members of my gun club got the employee discounts. At one point they carried Cree bulb flashlights. I bought several, one of which is a small, single AA battery, tactical flashlight. Been...

Re: S&W M&P .22LR Compact pistol review

My wife recently bought an S&W .380 EZ. Also an internal hammer fired gun. Also has a thumb safety and a backstrap safety, so basically you carry it cocked-and-locked similar to a 1911. She wanted a lightweight gun that is easy to rack, not too heavy, and has minimal recoil. It's also easy to load t...

I haven't tried any of their centerfire ammo that I can recall, but the rimfire ammo is great.

Re: Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

Hector's thread here convinced me to finally pick up an M&P 45. It's a police trade-in from the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office. Had fun taking it completely down the other night and it cleaned up real nice. I'll add some pics and hopefully a range report soon. That's great. Did you get the 4" or 4...

Gramps' shotgun.

My grandfather was born in 1893. His name was Howard, but to me he was always Gramps. He was nearly 54 when I came along – the only son of his only son – his only direct line down. Family legend has it that he was an excellent hunter, and beginning at the age of ten, roamed the fields around Vine Cr...

Re: Dick's Sporting to remove guns.

While pandering to the gun control crowd they failed to recognize that the folks who buy guns also buy ammo, hunting gear, gun safes, tree stands, bows and arrows, boots, fishing gear, camping gear, etc. So basically the stuff that fills one third of their floor space. Now, after taking a dump in th...

Re: Finally joined the .45 ACP club.

First twenty two rounds fired offhand at 10 yards. I'd say the M&P .45 is a keeper. :D
