General Discussion / Re: Best ammo selection on Oahu?
« Last post by drck1000 on Today at 08:52:21 AM »
Young guns seems to have good deals consistently on 223.  Seen it for $340ish a case for Federal too.  Most cases I see go for 380-400.  But Armscor was always $300 a case, but they seem to have disappeared.
Yeah. Young’s seems to have good pricing on bulk .223. I usually check them out at the gun shows or if I catch their sales. I used to buy most bulk 5.56/.223 from OGC, but haven’t seen a sale or checked them out in a while.

For Kaleo, I was referring to stuff like FGMM, Black Hills, etc.

While you can get better pricing by ordering in bulk, you can order any amount. I’ve done it with some hard to find ammo (.41 mag) and even some 5.56/.223 that I just wanted to try.  As little at 2 boxes of a given ammo. Even then, usually, the pricing was really good. I’ve found some that are cheaper if you buy 1-2 boxes locally, but that’s IF you can find it locally.

I too wouldn't be worried about the heat with AC and since I am retired, I don't have to be working in the heat.  I would rent for at least a year or two, to make sure if I did buy a place I would be happy living there.

I asked a cab driver how come no more construction workers after 2pm in Vegas, and he said, they call it a day.  It gets to hot.  This was summer time.

I personally find it difficult to respect someone's religious beliefs when their actions don't respect others' lawful right to use public roadways.

Respect is a two-way street (pun intended  :geekdanc:).

These people who do this are just assholes.  So basically anyone who was on the fence of which side to be on, now would lean toward the TMT side.

What percentage of Hawaiians oppose the telescope?  And how many Hawaiian groups support/oppose the telescope?

Many of my Hawaiian friends who moved to the mainland have posted in support of the Hawaiians.  But to be fair, I find that when someone leaves the islands, they become more proud of where they came from.  Because prior to them leaving, they never cared about any Hawaiian issues. Since moving, their FB feed fill up with OHA stuff, telescope, sovereignty, etc...I would say this is a good handful of those I know who left.

Had 1 friend who I've ridden with before always would play hip hop or EDM music.  Got in his car and he was jamming to IMUA.  I was like WTF, when you started to listen to Hawaiian music.  Another flys the Hawaii flag on her home.  But not when she was here.

I was unaware of her father's history as a Republican.  Might explain her Conservative-leaning stances on some issues, and her lack of lock-step marching with the Dem party.

If you want her motivations on how she votes or doesn't vote on any measure, you'll have to ask her.  All we can do is speculate without a public statement saying why.

As a Presidential candidate, she's going to have to avoid the "Orange Man Bad" platform to have any credibility with moderate Liberals and rust-belt Republicans who are considered swing voters.  It's too easy to be against someone, but much harder to be for specific policies and ideas to help the country -- and not to simply grab power for your party.

Her father proposed  a bill to change mag limits from 10 to 15rds here.  I forgot which forum member it was that wrote to him.  He then explained that some standard mags come with 17rds, so Gabbard amended the bill to 17rd limit.  But it didnt get any traction.  But IIRC he did support an anti 2a bill, I can't remember which one.  So 50/50 on him.

What she said 👆🏼

If they don’t have it in stock, hit up Kaleo Arms. They should be able to order for you.

I asked why she didn't vote. If she opposed the resolution for impeachment because she thought it cast a bad light on the party (or any other reason), she could have voted against it, as did the majority of other Democrats: 137 Democrats voted against the resolution compared to just 95 who voted for it. What does she gain by refusing to go on the record?

She was actually raised the daughter of a Republican politician. Mike Gabbard was a long-time Republican who at some point (2007) realized that his chances of getting re-elected (not his publicly stated reason) were much greater if he re-registered as a Democrat. Tulsi was 26 years old when her father changed from Republican to Democrat. She, along with her father, opposed gay marriage, etc., until she "saw the light".
