Re: Turns out the ATF is evil in many ways

I STILL haven't suggested laws or other government involvement in tobacco distribution and production. Quite the opposite in fact. But you guys have an obsession with the idea that anyone not a 'conservative' must by definition advocate government interference. It's almost like you don't understand...

Re: Turns out the ATF is evil in many ways

You make a lot of good points, but I will only address this one. Drug dealers are violent because the drugs they move are illegal. Agreed. Amsterdam further enforces your point. Prior to Prohibition, alcohol dealers were non-violent. During Prohibition, bootleggers were violent and police corruptio...

Re: Turns out the ATF is evil in many ways

So you're cool with meth and fentanyl dealers I take it, by the same capitalist reasoning? That's a difficult question, because drug-dealers and violent crime go hand-in-hand. They're also not currently contributing to the tax-burden. Tobacco farmers, on the other hand, don't have a reputation and ...

Re: Turns out the ATF is evil in many ways

You can choose not to buy tobacco products. No one is forced into this. Upon buying and using a pack of cigarettes, you can decide not to purchase and use any more. Tobacco is a method of trading pleasure for life expectancy, which isn't significantly different from a host of other perilous activiti...

Re: Jury finds OH man not guilty of making 196 silencers

I'm glad the guy was found "not-guilty", but not because those aren't obviously silencer parts. The lawyer had big balls? Hell, the guy had big balls to be on probation and sell that crap on the internet. Still... it's got an epic kind of feel to it. Personally, I think the ATF screwed this by cobbl...

Re: Evo-9, piston stuck - seeking help

Many apologies; it isn't the piston that's stuck, it's the fixed spacer. On the contrary, I can wiggle the piston a little bit, but the fixed-spacer seems tight in there, and is neither falling out freely, nor allowing the piston to move out. It's kind of good news, because it practically guarantees...

Re: Evo-9, piston stuck - seeking help

Did you try using a barrel screwed on to the extension to help with leverage? It's most likely carbon build up behind the piston. I found that "DUB WHEEL CLEANER" really helps with carbon build up, however, I don't know it's affects on Aluminum. I've only used it on steel silencer mounts. I have, b...
