    I've been shopping online for a small home safe, and I've noticed that nearly all safes now have digital keypads. Apparently the general population really likes the James Bond touch, and doesn't realize what a truly bad idea this is. Electronics malfunction. All it takes is a strong solar...

    I know I'm not the only guy who like to squirrel away some good handloads for the big day. Trouble is, typical commercial +p type load data is almost never listed by manufactures. This is most common with handgun calibers. What loads have you worked up for your firearms for your SHTF stash? I am...
  3. Coronavirus
    Finally! and well done. In the midst of the COVID-19 lockdown, far too many liberal unconstitutional dirtbags have taken aim at gun dealers and shooting ranges. Hopefully, this puts an end to it...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello. I have never been in the military for medical reasons. I would be denied for medical reasons. I have never been in a firefight and have no experience with dealing with that kind of stress and adrenaline. Does anyone know of any firearm training drills on how to prepare for that kind of...
  5. Missouri
    Hello all. Not sure if this has been mentioned yet but a Missouri Senate bill has been proposed that wants to turn Missouri into a gun rights sanctuary state. This was taken from https://www.senate.mo.gov/19info/BTS_Web/Bill.aspx?SessionType=R&BillID=3128198 Here is a blog post summary of it...
  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hello, I have been seeing a few videos of people training in this sort of tactical style: For personal reasons, I am unable to join the military and am very interested in this type of training. Does anyone have any information on this sort of training? How much do these lessons cost? How...

    Just as versatile as a smoothbore longarm. Flintlock, so it is sustainable. No licence, no registration, no permit to purchase.

    When I discuss lethal force with a handgun -- i.e. a civilian who pulls the trigger outside of the home -- I talk about aiming vs. pointing. For most people in a state where you have mandated training, like my own Mass, the basic firearms course discusses aiming - lining up the sights. It's...

    I am going to kick this off with some resources available in my state, it would be great if others did as well so we can have a resource available to all users. If others participate in this I will make this a sticky at the top of the General, Pistol, and Rifle, and Military Weapons forums...

    Regardless of what you think about SJWs and rioters (I think we have covered that ad-naseam), what do you believe when it comes to their right to keep and bear arms?

    Strait-pull pistol caliber carbine/pistol, want or don't? Strait-pull is actually a "Bolt Action" but MUCH faster to load. Not a lot of bolt travel required in pistol calibers. Can be nearly as fast to use as a semi, but legal in the ban-happy states. Closed/manual breech is superior for...
  12. Virginia
    The following laws become effective on Friday, July 1: * Virginia will honor the permits from all other states. In turn we should get recognition from three new states: New Hampshire, Georgia, and Colorado. As of this afternoon, none of those three states have updated their web sites to show...

    I'm currently working as armorer and prop designer for a low-budget series. I can't go into too many details, as I signed a non-disclosure agreement, but what I can say is that I am insistent on making the weaponry used realistic to the characters, and making sure they use the weapons in a real...
  14. Firearms General Discussion
    I just moved out to a farm and I want to set up an area for target practice since I'm out far enough in the country I can shoot right here, no need to go to a range. My question for you all is how you would set that up and what types of targets would you include? Originally I was just going to...

    Is it acceptable to fire old antique firearms? Like ones made before 1899? Many people really are against it, like it's morally wrong. But others will shoot old guns. Anyone want to share their opinions on this?

    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...

    I did a search here and couldn't find anything on it posted already, but some guys have put together a firearms alternative to firearm-haters Craigslist. It's called Loy's List at www.loyslist.com and is focused on firearms, accessories, loading equipment, firearms-related services, ammunition...

    Has anyone made a splattering target or some sort of reactive target that is easy to see. This could be along the lines of the dirtybird targets. I personally took two old drum heads of the same size and put a white one on top of another one that i spray painted fluorescent blue. I could see the...
