Re: What u put in the ultimate bug out bag???

MREs have about 2000 calories; so I could use less than one MRE per day. So if I had a case in my bag, I could survive over two weeks if worst came to worst And I went two weeks without eating at all once, so I suggest you not bother with food. Unless you actually want to do something other than li...

Re: What u put in the ultimate bug out bag???

Something you can grab and go with and that will sustain two normal adults for about 4 ( rationing of course ) weeks. Standard bug out bag supports one person for 3 days. By then you should have transitioned to another option based on circumstance. One bag for 2 people for 4 weeks is a lot of stuff...

Re: Weapon Storage ?

Smoke is gtg. It's not anti-personell and you can get them for about $40 each. I looked on gun broker and couldn't find any for under about $100, and they weren't the real deal, some offbrand.. do you know where any would be available? I would love to have a couple smokes in my collection :) and I ...

Re: Recoil Booster: Stand-Alone Nielsen Device

great idea! I had the same thought a while back, but I am not sure how that would work for those of us in the US. I suppose we would have to register it as a separate suppressor.

Re: Water storage

Its a good idea. I live in montana and my parents have a 2 story barn they built for hay and the horses, but they wanted a water trough back there and had no way to fill it. So when we built the barn about 5 years ago they put gutters on it and ran a pvc tube down to a 500 (I think) gallon water tro...

good ideas.. The last link suggests putting dry ice in it and letting it melt to fill the tube with carbon dioxide before sealing it to remove the oxygen, seems like a idea.

I would really like to find a small cave in the mountains near my place :) that would make a great cache

Re: What can I use for baffles

on topic, you have probably heard but it is easy enough to make cone baffles out of ordinary washers. Just get a socket that is about as big as the washer and a marble to go in the center, put one on each side in a vise and you have a cone baffle, chunks of slightly smaller tube than your main one s...

Re: Bore Diameters - Stepped or No

well i guess it depends on what kind of suppressor, The ATF says you cannot replace the main part, which would be the stamped tube for most suppressors, its kind of a debate on monocores. Other than that it is, in my understanding, perfectly legal to replace baffles in a suppressor, but the ones tak...

Re: Bore Diameters - Stepped or No

a way to make your machining more accurate is to ensure the can butts up against something when threaded on. if you are putting it on a thick barrel you would turn down the end and thread the barrel 1/2 28 (i believe is standard thread) and have a nice face where the threads end so the suppressor ca...

Re: Bore Diameters - Stepped or No

to an extent the bigger the better. A .223 would need more internal volume than a 9mm pistol, because suppressors quiet a gunshot by slowing down the gas expansion and cooling the gas so it expands less. If you really wanted to be scientific about it I'm sure you could calculate the expansion of a c...

Re: Bore Diameters - Stepped or No

the ATF sees any part of a suppressor as a suppressor, meaning there can me no parts that do not fit in it. No extra end caps or baffles or tube etc.. you can technically build a .40 can and use it on whatever guns you please, but shooting a .223 through a .45 hole would not offer much suppression. ...

Re: 17 hmr design

I made a monocore for my .22 and it works great on the .17hmr. I suppose it would work a lot better if the main hole wasn't so much bigger, but you can't really hear the boom, and it is quiet enough to hear the bullet impact if its more than about 25 yards. I love being able to tell if you hit the g...
