Interpol to FBI to local LE- to our son (big brother is watching)

I posted this just now to another similar gun forum but thought it applicable to post here too. I'm still trying to wrap my head around all this. Our 28 y.o. son is really into online gaming. Some I don't like due to the violent nature but he is living in his on place, has a job, etc. Last night loc...

Re: SBR running super hot with silencer

Typical length for the manufacturer to do any warranty work is minimum of 8", some 9" with 5.56/.223. 7.5" is really to short for routine rapid fire, mag dumps with a can. Might be prudent to check with the can manufacturer to see what they recommend.

Re: Omega 9k pending, what other pistons/parts do I need?

If you can possibly stear away from anything with LH threads it would save a lot of aggravation. I don't know about Omega but all my cans have RH threads. Tightening one loosens the other. I have an HK 45 that came with LH threaded barrel. Only can that requires blue loctite.

Re: Washington Bureaucrats driven to drinking

Could be they are actually having to put in a full day of work for their pay. I had to do a clinical rotation at a VA hospital once. My supervisor punched in at 8:00. Then had breakfast, read the paper, 2nd cup of coffee. Saw the first patient about 9:30.

Much of the problem lies with birth control and the imediate gratification sex provides. It is hard to pull youself out of the muck when you have kids needing the basics of life. When you have 14 year olds having babies the cycle keeps going.

More like a lemon for the tax payers. This thing has been in planning for 8-10 years. RPG proof, gas proof. Even has a medical unit with couple pints of President's blood type.

Re: Best 9mm Suppressor for AR-9 Direct Thread?

Check out features you needs instead of brand. Cheap price would be last on my list. Small enough diameter to fit under your rail. Light weight. Something you can dis-assemble for cleaning. My 9 mm AR suppressed is a hoot for plinking. 147 gr stays subsonic. I use Colt magazines. They are $99.00 for...

Re: SUPPRESSOR FOR THOMPSON CENTER ''COMPASS'' 6.5 CREEDMOOR

If you have never handloaded before, you might need to think buying a bolt gun in 300 Blackout for subs. You can buy factory loaded sub ammo. 6.5 Creedmoor is a lot of brass volume to try and get consistent subs. There probably is a 6.5 Creedmoor forum around that can give you advice. I love reloadi...

Contact Liberty Suppressors. Their Mystic X is now rated for up to 300 Win Mag and would probably work but they would know. Barrel length seems to be a big concern for most cans. I have an older Mystic and am waiting for a baffle strike so I can take advantage of their upgrade program. If I went for...

Re: Buffer Education

My understanding on buffers is it has to do with recoil. Using the appropriate buffer for the load will keep you from beating up your gun with different calibers. Pistol gas vs rifle gas makes a difference too as do suppressors. Also if you shoot subs you will need an appropriate buffer. My 9 mm AR ...

This sounds like something you would read in a John Grisham book. A case like the lawyer, "The Bruiser" would have taken to turn a fast buck by getting a settlement. The protagonist in this case would be the bad guy.

Political anti CCW bumper sticker

Our small town has a community bulletin board. There was an advertisement where someone is making bumper stickers for sale that said "For your safety, bumper huggers back off. Concealed Carry person on board".

This type of aggression puts gun owners in the class of Billy the kid.
