Off Topic / Amazon Prime / youtube action movies
« on: November 28, 2023, 07:39:08 AM »
I don't have Hulu or Netflix or anything else, I only have Amazon Prime and youtube so that's what I'm interested in
I've come to be a fan of Scott Adkins movies. in case you don't know the action actor, he is in several B movies where he is the star as well as some supporting roles in movies like Expendables, Fast X, and John Wick 4 to name a few
some of his movies I've found on Prime and youtube that are worth watching are: Boyka: Undisputed series (also has Michael Jae White in the second in the series who I like to watch too), Accident Man, Ninja and Ninja 2: Shadow of a Tear, Avengement, Close Range, Debt Collector, Savage Dog

what are some good Amazon Prime and youtube movies that you have watched? 
Firearms and Accessories / 357 magnum federal HST ammo test
« on: November 13, 2023, 10:37:05 AM »
THE best carry caliber. 357 magnum!
1340 fps, 154 grain JHP.  that's what is advertised on the box. out of the 4" Ruger GP100 it's pretty much as advertised
22" penetration and perfect expansion. even out of the 2" barrel Taurus. out of the Ruger they expand to .6" and retains nearly all its' weight. only losing less than 1 grain for both tested barrels
testing out a 2" Taurus and THE best revolver ever made, the Ruger GP100, 4" barrel  :thumbsup:

Firearms and Accessories / 357 magnum THE best carry caliber

the King of carry calibers

I want one in 44 magnum  :thumbsup:

PM9 is 9mm, Long Beach Operator is 45acp
first time shooting the PM9. I've had the Operator for a few years. shooting the PM 9 for 70 rounds, no failures no hiccups, ran perfect out of the box. the Springfield is just as reliable
testing the 2 bc these are the best 1911's that I have. I can't afford a Nighthawk Custom or Wilson Combat, so these 2 mid tier/upper tier production 1911's are what I can afford. like most of us, I assume.
In the comparison I consider reliability, trigger, sights, accuracy, shootability, features that come with the pistol, and overall fit and finish/build quality
trigger on the PM9 is 2 lbs 12.9 oz, on the Operator it's 3 lbs 6.7 oz.  13.6 oz difference. pretty negligible. both feel great
PM9 has fiber optic front sight, adjustable target rear sight. Operator has Trijicon tritium night sights front and rear.  just depends what your needs are.  neither is better, just they have a specific purpose
accuracy is negligible as far as I can tell from shooting them both off hand
both shoot great. triggers are great. no issues with both having any failures or hiccups whatsoever. back on target a little faster with the PM9 bc it's 9mm, so that's the caliber not the gun
the features that differentiate between the 2 are. the PM 9 has front checkering on the front strap, has grooves on the top if the gun to cut down on glare. Springfield has a magwell which I really like much easier to load mags with the magwell, and rail for lights etc. other than already mentioned, pretty similar
the one thing about the Springfield is it is tight tolerance slide to frame and it's a little difficult to rack the slide which should improve as I shoot it more. whereas trhe PM 9 is also tight tolerance but racking the slide is easy, very smooth out of the box. not a big deal at all.
overall fit and finish goes to the Dan Wesson by a slight margin. both are very well put together. its just that the Dan Wesson feels a little smoother. slight edge to Dan Wesson
IMO, which one is better? can't really say. either one is a great choice. for a duty/defensive 1911 I would go with the Springfield. for a range/target/competition 1911 I would go with the Dan Wesson. just depends what your needs or wants are.

I shoot the Dan Wesson first in the vid

Off Topic / Best baby back ribs - discuss
« on: September 14, 2023, 06:59:51 PM »
My favorite restaurant ever is Wood Ranch BBQ in LA
Ribs are tender. Fall off the bone. Just right. Sauce is very tasty. They brew their own beer too.
So good, I've gone there by myself many times. Highly recommend if you are in LA
But I cant find anything even remotely close to this here in Hawaii
I just went to Tex 808 BBQ today and was terrible. Meat over cooked, dry, sauce is not good.
Nowhere here is any good
Recommend anyplace here for bbq ribs?

Reviews / Real Avid AR15 pivot pin install tool
« on: July 13, 2023, 08:37:19 AM »
$13 on Amazon
It took me only 1 try, less than 5 minutes
We all know that front pivot pin is a bitch to install and when the spring and detent go flying, now I'm on the floor with a flashlight looking for them like a crack fiend.  Sometimes multiple times. Took me over 1 hour one time for just this one part, and man I was getting frustrated
But this tool is well worth $13. I highly recommend it 👍👍

Firearms and Accessories / Aero Precision bolt action rifle
« on: July 11, 2023, 04:37:55 PM »
the Aero action is compatible with Remington 700 short action stocks and chassis.  you can buy the complete Aero bolt action rifle or build it with the action, barreled action, etc.
trigger is compatible with Remington 700

What does a firearm company do when they've built an enviable lineup of innovative, high-quality AR-15 and AR-308 rifles? Build a bolt action rifle for the 21st century, of course! Caleb gives us a tour of Aero Precision's Solus Bolt Action Rifle System. They're calling the Solus a "system" because you can get a complete rifle, separate barreled actions and chassis, or even the action and barrels alone. Caleb shows us a Solus rifle built on the all-aluminum Competition chassis.

The Competition chassis comes with multiple forend lengths, all forends having M-LOK® slots on the sides and bottom, plus a full-length Arca-Swiss rail on the bottom. There are front and rear QD sling swivel sockets on both sides. On the top of the forend, you get forward mounting points for a night vision bridge. A spigot bipod mount is available separately.

Working back to the receiver, the Solus has an AICS-compatible magazine well. The ambidextrous mag release is on the front of the triggerguard. The pleasantly ergonomic pistol grip is upright, the way many target shooters like it. If you do not, you can swap on any pistol grip that fits an AR-15.

The Solus Competition buttstock is adjustable for length-of-pull and cheek rest height. There's a handy bag rider on the bottom. The adjustment mechanisms are smooth and easy to operate, and once you tighten everything back up, the stock is very solid. You can get the Competition chassis with a FIXED or FOLDING stock. Want a different configuration entirely? Aero Precision also offers this rifle mounted in a KRG Bravo Chassis.

You can get the Solus action chambered in 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, and .308 Winchester. The Nitride-finished 416 stainless steel alloy barrel is honed and lapped, and the muzzle is threaded (thread cap included). Want a different barrel? The Solus action accepts barrels with the Savage thread pattern. A re-barreling job CAN be as simple as getting a Savage pre-fit barrel and barrel nut kit.

The M1913 Picatinny scope rail is machined as part of the receiver, with a built-in 20 MOA of elevation. The action takes Remington 700 compatible triggers. The Solus has a three-lug bolt with a 60-degree throw. The bolt knob is easy to replace. The bolt head can be interchanged with bolt heads for other calibers..... that Aero Precision plans to offer in the future. Bonuses: A cocking indicator on the top rear of the bolt, plus a simple pushbutton bolt release on the left side of the receiver.
