    So, i think I got a pretty decent deal today. Been looking to purchase a firearm for me as a graduation present. Something in the $500-600 range. Thinking about a new handgun or maybe a cheaper AR. So today I went into an outdoor retailer store (no names, but its a fairly new big box outdoor...

    Hey all, your favorite walking popsicle from the great north here. In case you haven't heard, the Anointed One (aka O'watermellon-patch, aka Butkrak Obola, aka Premeire Obama aka Papa Obama) is trying to make it difficult, if not impossible for us Americans to get our hands on M855 ammo...

    Ok, so for the past many years, I have been under the assumption that .223 and 5.56 were one in the same. A guy that I work with explained that this is not true. That there is a difference between the two. I have fired many .223 federal through my Colt HBAR Elite 5.56 NATO and had no...

    I bought a set of steel sapi plates on ebay as an extra set... But I know a lot of people have them as their primary plates. The issue is bullet frag. That nasty hot copper jacket screaming towards your jugular or shredding your nice plate carrier. Realistically and statistically you aren't...

    So do to me being exceptionally cheap these days I was at the range and the guy next to me dumped about 200 rounds of tula .223 down range. Then he packed up and left. I was thinking what a d bag and decided to pick up his brass for him. I shoot on a public lands range so you have to police...

    So I am reloading 5.56 for my stg 556. Me being a military guy I usually reload 55 grain fmj or 77 grain smk. But I wanted ideas from the sb masses. I was considering 55 grain vmax or some type of varmint round. This ammo would be for shtf/home defense. I love the 77 grain smk used it overseas...

    I have recently purchased a Windham AR-15 in 5.56/.223, and have loved it. The only let down of owning the weapon has been finding ammo that I can buy more than 5 boxes of 20 rounds in a given day. I have considered buying a 250 round box, or even more, but what I have not been able to figure...

    Nobody around my area has any sealed cans on stripper clips or in individual boxes. Most places online are sold out too. So if any of you are willing to sell a can, or know of some excellent deals, let me know.

    After watching last weeks Top Shot I've been thinking about the 5.7 for several reasons and would like to hear what other are thinking. With the 5.7 the FPS is high enough to be effective, but the thing that has peaked my interest is that I can shoot the same round from a 5.7 pistol virtually...

    Got the new CTD catalog in the mail the other day and couldn't resist sharing this here. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/ARR830-1.html Looks like a neat gadget (toy) for the shooter who has everything. I have reservations about its practical/tactical use. Looks like it'd be fun for...
