  1. Shotgun Forum
    I have an older 870 Express with a 18.5" barrel that's a shooter, as much as a working shotgun can be, I suppose. With its rifle sights and rifled slugs I'm happy with its precision out to 25-30 yds, but I mostly put 7-1/2 or 00 through it. The only time I've ever had problems with it was when I...

    I saw this on a Netflix movie which is the first clue that it may not be practical or advisible in real life. Also, I've never seen or heard of anyone doing this but ...

    Howdy, I've purchased a Romanian TTC and man, what a pistol! Don't know if I'm just lucky or what, but it seems to be a tack-driver when using S&B ammo, haven't tried anything else yet. Anyway, here's my questions: Does anyone know where I can buy a 9x19mm barrel/bushing for it? 7.62x25 used...

    My family members are in the process of gathering supplies for a "survival cache". I should say maybe 4-5 caches and locations. Placed in a five mile radius of a preplanned BOL. We are planning to use 20 gallon sealed plastic barrels. We are planning items such as food, personal hygiene...

    I have a fiberglass canoe and an aluminum canoe. We always use the larger aluminum for camping. And take both for buddy canoe trips. i've seen a couple of videos and stuff involving fiberglass layers, layered with floor tiles(different kinds). Most often stopping pistol rounds. of course these...

    Well it's been a month since I had to take apart my shotgun. I was about take it to a gunsmith to reassemble it because I thought my breech bolt would not go into the gun. Last night I realized that it wasn't that, it was the one of the action bar of the forend tube assembly was bent. The...

    Hi, so I finally settled on a used Legion Arsenal SGL21. It came with a Midwest Industries Extended Quad Rail attached. Unfortunately, in order to put the quad rail on, the previous owner had to cut the two point sling attachment off from the disc around the barrel (sorry, not sure what this...

    I know that a rifle with a barrel of less than 16.5 inches is a SBR. I was looking at the PPS-43C with a folding stock and a 9.5'' barrel. I was wondering, if I was to temporarily remove the stock, would I still need a SBR permit?
  9. Food and water
    Well I just bought 3 used 55 gallon blue barrels and have cleaned them out. Completely rinsed them out and let soak to the rim in dawn. But the smell is still there. Amoretto and orange flavoring were stored in these for a local distillery. The water tastes just fine when the water was in it but...

    I read some things about raising catfish in a barrel. I would like to know has anyone in the Midwest had success with doing this? Is there any precautions I should take that is not mentioned in the survival file. Also where should I buy the live catfish to start the process, and the earthworms.

    Hi guys, I own a SIG P229 in .40. The gun is great, but the real reason I bought it was for the multiple caliber conversion: If you buy the gun in .40 S&W, all you have to do is drop in a .357 SIG barrel and you can shoot that caliber as well. Slide, mags, springs, and everything else don't...

    I recently purchased a Remington 870 express Combo for home defense and it came with 2 barrels. One is a 20” riffled barrel with sights and the other is a smooth bore 26” ventilated barrel. Can I use 00 buckshot in the 20” riffled barrel? Will it ruin the riffling? If it will ruin the riffling...
