Long term storage, RUST issue

Long story cut short, I had my SWR HEMS suppressor in long term storage. After 6+ years, I was back where I could pull it out and go shooting. I made a tool to remove the end cap (2 Roller pins, vitamin cap and some JB Weld). What I find inside is a fairly rusted spring and a piston that will not mo...

Re: Scotch.

I use to drink more Scotch, but then I got cheap. I have been looking for a single malt Scotch tasters guild so I can get what I want right off the bat.

Right now I am drinking bourbon. It is not bad, but not as complex as I would like.

Re: Man shoots tree, tree fires back

A long long time ago stuck a quarter to the side of a tree. I then backed up and shot it. The first shot ricocheted back at me. It came close enough to my head that I didn't attempt to shoot the quarter a second time. BTW, and for the record, Even though I made a bet I could hit it, I never thought ...

Re: MP5K SBR / Pistol swap

As I understand it...

With stock = SBR.
Without stock = pistol
With VG and no stock = can be SBR or can be AOW. If registered SBR you are ok.

Re: Octane 9HD on a Beretta 92 Questions

I think you have a bad piston because the thread protector will go on all the way.

And just as a sanity check, turn the thread protector around the other way and it goes on?

Re: Quit buying ammo at inflated prices.

I have said it before and I will say it again.

Buy it cheap, stack it deep.

Anyone who is desperate for ammo right now screwed up. They didn't invest in ammo when they should have. Remember, your gun is as good as a rock or a pointy stick if it doesn't have ammo.
