Thank you both for your replies.  I'm going to think about it some more.

Reloading / Reloading 7.62x39

So I finally got my hands on an AK and surprise surprise, the ammo is not as cheap as it used to be.  A couple of the shops are saying it's not even worth reloading 7.62x39.  Maybe they were saying  steel cases aren't worth reloading but I did see 7.62x39 brass for sale.  It's gotta be worth it then right?

and as always awesome customer service. A+

So true about the service.  I think SEC and WGS are the only 2 places I've been to where I didn't (sometimes) walk out saying  :wtf:

Oh and maybe Young Guns too.

Young guns had some for about the same price yesterday for a box of 500. They didn't have a whole bunch left though.

I think the sign at Sports Authority said there's a 10 box limit per customer per day.   That's very generous me thinks.

They do have some remington 870s in stock though.

I'd be down. I need to zero my laser for the pistol. I can barely see the target let alone a red laser on the pistol side.

Weekdays are better for me.

Been getting mine from laser-cast and haven't had any problem with availability on 45 colt, 45acp.  9mm on order...

Thanks for the info.  Prices seem reasonable and they have what I'm looking for in stock.

Gotta check this place out. New to the firearms community but would rather spend my money at a place with great customer service.

 :thumbsup:


On that note though, Brian and Dex at X-ring are great too.  The shop's a little far for me but  they've always provided great service.

It's definitely getting better although some calibers go extremely fast.  I was able to order a crap load of 9s in the last 2 weeks.  All in different weights though.   :'(

wow that is a lot of LSD, you don't get any discoloring? I've read of guys using 1/4 tsp - 1tsp of lemishine and a couple drops of dawn.

I got a little discoloring when I put too much lemishine.  I figured more lemishine would make it shinier.  It doesn't.  Still nice and clean though.  LOL

Just wondering how that's possible when the ROs yell at you for crossing the yellow line?  Every time I've gone, they've been pretty strict about it.  Not saying the story's not true.

Hey guys, thank you all for the great responses. I really appreciate it.

For those of you who registered your weapons, where exactly did you register them? The local PD? And how did you feel after you registered them? It seems like it would be an easy way for them to come by and grab your gun if the law were to ever change! A scary thought...

As for the job situation, I can easily work from home with jobs from the mainland. I don't forsee that becoming an issue... at least not in the near future.

For being considered a haole, I'm not too worried about it. I spent my whole early life being the minority and I'm used to it. Also when I visited Oahu most locals I spoke with thought I was also a local. Regardless, it won't become a problem for me unless they block my view of the beach  :shaka:

And cost of living can't get much worse than where I live now. I'm located in the silicon valley, where a 2+2 can cost close to a million in the right area. Life here is too fast, the human congestion in the valley is nauseating, and cost of living is growing every day. I think Hawaii will be a nice change of pace and I've always enjoyed surfing, but norcal waters are too f*ckin cold!  :shaka:

I'm not sure which island to live on yet. I suspect cost of living and location will be a factor. I would like to be located within walking distance of the beach of course, and not too rural... wouldn't like to drive more than 15 minutes to reach the nearest grocery. I've only been on Oahu and that seemed great. I liked what I saw on the north shore.

You sound like a friend of mine.  He's a programmer who used to live and work in Cali.  One day, he moved to Oahu for the surf and never moved back.  He still works for the company in Cali but remotely and because he worked from home anyways, the company doesn't know that he lives in Hawaii.

I'd like to weigh in on this if I may. My wife and I are moving to Oahu most likely near the end of this year. We got married in Waimanalo almost two years ago, and she loved it. We were always going to move back to the US, but didn't know where. We decided to visit Oahu again but this time without the "holiday blinkers"! We tried to imagine ourselves as already having moved and what it would be like day to day, obviously as much as you can without having to go to work. We decided that it is the right place for us, and we've been planning as much as we can since then. I grew up in a town just like Waimanalo, so for me it seems like my old town, just relocated a few thousand miles away.

We currently live in London, I've been here since 1998 and my wife has been here for only around 5 years. We live in a two floor house which has been split into 10 apartments, all have approximately 120sq feet of space, and rent in dollars is around $1400 a month. We have no yard, and no space to park a car and so we get around using public transport. It always makes my American friends laugh when I tell them you have to have a license to own a tv here, for real, if they catch you without one they fine you up to something like $2000 (they even have vans that cruise around with gear that can tell if you are receiving a signal, they check it against their license list and bust you if you aren't current with your fees. We have 20% tax on almost everything, and in central London everything is very expensive, even the basics like milk and bread. Before I lost my job I earned just enough to pay rent, my travel and a tiny amount left over to either save or to use for entertainment, about 20% of my salary.

I've been in the UK for about 15 years, and I still find it hard to adjust. Every time I speak my accent gives me away and people know I'm not from around here, let alone my real name! We have racial tension here too, we even have a political party known for it, but they are still allowed to operate. We also have known terrorist supporters who for some reason the UK won't deport because the person in question may be in danger should they return to their own country. I always defend the US when someone here berates her, I always have and I always will. But then again over here the French aren't particularly popular, nor the Germans, nor almost anyone else who isn't British  :D I lost my job in forensics because the government decided there was no profit in it, and so they closed all the labs down and 1600+ of us became unemployed.

I won't elaborate on how the gun ban is useless, my last job was in fighting gun crime in the UK and business was good  :geekdanc:

My wife and I are moving to Oahu with no solid job offers, with nothing else but the determination to work our asses off and to do the very best we can. We both have very good resum├ęs, and aren't picky about what we do for work. We are going to try our absolute hardest to make it work, if we fail it won't be because we didn't try. We would rather try and fail than wonder if we could have done it.

My point is that every state, in every country has it's good and bad sides. It has to be what you make of it. Life is to be lived and that includes the hard parts that make you sad, and wish things could be easier. One thing I have learned from martial arts is that there is no shame in not winning, victory isn't black and white.

I wish you the very best of luck in your move to Hawai'i, I hope it's the right fit for you and your family. My wife and I are headed there later this year. God bless us all  :shaka:



Good luck to you Gunfu.  I hope things work out for you and your wife.

If you have any questions or need something researched, send me a PM.  I'm on Oahu by the way.  I know little about the other islands but I do know a lot about this island (I think).

Life on the mainland isn't all that rosy either.  It's what you make of it here. 

Good luck with whatever you decide Groundshark.  If you need additional information or any help (not financially LOL), PM me.

I and other LIFE instructors will be there.

I'd like to throw something out there for your consideration: We are facing one of the most extensive anti-gun legislative session in recent history. We, as gun owners will need to prepare and organize for the upcoming fight. I'd like to take advantage of this opportunity to suggest that tomorrow we try to (and I hate this word...) network with each other with the intent of creating a working coalition of gun owners. This is not an attempt to get you to join any one organization, although I personally think it would be a good idea, but rather to get to know each other, to strategize, and to help eliminate any of the infighting or bickering that may ultimately reduce our effectiveness. I would further suggest that we also try to meet on a more formalized basis, soon, to hammer out any differences and solidify our positions.

If you are willing, I will help facilitate such a meeting and secure a meeting place. What does everyone think?

Thanks!

I'm in or at least keep me/us informed.

So, I'm reading that a stripped lower receiver not named in paragraph 1 and as long as we don't have all the parts to assemble or the same person doesn't have all the parts to assemble is legal to own?
