Don't know exactly where to post this other than starting another thread so I'll stick it in here.It's often like that for those who are
Thanks DRK for somewhat of a prep for my rant.
What's the deal with all this suffering during lockdown ? It's not even been a week.
I've just recovered from an foot injury where I've been on a "lockdown" as I could not walk for almost a month and did not get cabin fever, commit homicide, contemplate suicide or suffer any psychological damage (that I know of ).
I am not enjoying this, but find it interesting to see how people are reacting. When SHTF, it will get even worst. But that's what the 2a is for right?Similar for me. While I am enjoying the convenience of working from home, I'd much rather be in the office and have the option of working from home. While I do have the option to work from home, there are many things that I prefer about being in the office. My job is such that I could sustain this for a while and seems like it is even expected from my employer.
My wife and I are still working, so we are part of the lucky group. Many friends are out of jobs or will be very soon. I know many live pay check to paycheck. A few own businesses and for the first time,they can't pay their rent.
It is nice to have no traffic, but for the better good of man, I would rather have traffic and people have their jobs/businesses.
Im no expert and there are people who would frown on me for saying this, but in regards to com-bloc headspacing its my OPINION that you can get away with using scotch blue masking tape on a live round. Step 1 take out your firing pin (a safety measure to avoid ND) step 2 take a live round and use the case rim as a stencil to cut out a piece of tape(one piece of tape usually =.004 +,- .0008 if you have a mic you can double check) keep adding a piece of tape until the bolt wont close with reasonable force.I'm also by no means an expert with AKs, but the about is close to what my understanding is.
You were the one making inferences that the monarchial form of government does not represent freedom and only constitutional democratic-republic forms of government does not represent oppression.Timeframe for context? I'm no expert historian, but if the context is "both Great Britain and the Kingdom of Hawaii had tremendous amounts of freedom compared to the US during the same time period". . .
In many instances, both Great Britain and the Kingdom of Hawaii had tremendous amounts of freedom compared to the US during the same time period.
Both GB and Hawaii did not have the institution of slavery and Hawaii had more egalitarian rights for all of its minorities early on where the US only achieved that after the Civil Rights movements in the 1960s.
Who is this Corona Virus? The best gun salesman since Obama?Best salesmen of just about everything. There are some items that I'm seeing low or out of stock that I wouldn't think people would stock up on, ever.
Sweet, that means there’ll be a lot of cheap guns once this thing blows over.Got me thinking of all of the guns that I saw on the LGS' shelved maybe 2-3 weeks ago. I've been wanting a Glock 21 for a while :hmm:
I haven't had any issues with the steel cased ammo.No experience with .223 Rem RAS ammo, but Tula 55 gr is advertised at 3241 fps. I've shot a bunch of both 55 gr and 62 gr and they seem to be pretty weak ammo. Or at least they didn't function well in my mid-length gas guns. That was way back when I had heavier springs and buffers, which I have gone away from. Didn't try Tula in carbine gas guns that I owned, at least at that time.
I didn't test the wolf ammo yet, but these are the velocity numbers i got from a 14.5" Faxon gunner match series barrel, 223 Wylde, shooting Red Army Standard:
The 16" barreled upper has had at least 6,000 rounds through it at the time of testing. I'm not sure if this makes a difference at all.
I was using a Caldwell chronograph set up at 10 feet from muzzle at Koko Head. As you can see, the RAS isn't really "under powered" as much as a lot of people claim. Velocity numbers are still decently close to m193 out of a 16" barrel
Wolf Gold is good to go!You want? Trade for TP?
I've shot both gold and steel. Both worked fine. The only I had with the steel was that it's super dirty. Shooting 30rds steel is like shooting 500rds brass in level of dirtyness. I'm also the kind of guy who cleans his rifle after every range day. So having to use extra elbow grease sucked. I don't mind paying more for brass now.I've shot quite a bit of Wolf steel. Some issues with shooting with mid-length guns that are on the under-gassed side, but no problems with carbine length guns. Same for Tula. Read similar feedback on the Tula, but my personal experience is that as long as you clean your chamber before going back to brass and that you have a gun that isn't on the under-gassed side. I generally avoid Tula these days, but I would if it was cheap and I was running low on brass.
I wold be cautious of Tula steel. I haven't shot it, but there are enough reviews online of the primer end being ripped off by the extractor and the rest of the steel being stuck in the chamber end.
thank you for bringing in ammo for the 2A community!I picked up a case of Wolf Gold a few months back when a local vendor had it in their order by mistake, so I picked it up for a good price. Haven't shot any of it yet, but I've heard that it is decent. My expectation is ammo that functions well, not low-moa. At least not for Wolf.
I would rather buy the Federal AE, than the wolf gold with those increases. I can see people buying 22LR at that price, not too bad.
I hope it gets better soon
Starting to see 223 and 22LR come back in stock, but the cases are much higher now. For example, 223 Wolf Gold is about $120 a case increase and Federal AE 22LR is about $40 increase. With these increases, we’re unsure if the cases would still be “reasonably” priced in Hawaii to bring in at this time. The Wolf Gold would be about 42-43cpr range and the 22lr would be in the $27 a brick range. We’re leaning towards no on the 223 wolf gold, but wanted to put it out here to get a better idea (ie: would you still buy at that price if the alternative is nothing else available). It’s a really unfortunate increase but supply/demand we suppose.Good to see stock coming back in.
If you notice the Red Cross on the crate, these are for "Health and Safety" use so not really for sale.... but who knows if the shit really starts hitting the fan... maybe a case of TP, two snickers, and some limes might buy a stick or two..I just saw "High Explosives" and "Dangerous"
Meant to tag you for the above postHunting "tag"?
Working on one of the project I've been scheming.How much for some dy-no-mite?
