    In 2016 I built a predator hunting rifle with a Palmetto state armory mid-length Freedom upper. It has been sitting in the closet for the past year and only has a few rounds through it. Took it to the sand pit, and it is getting 5 inch groups with 62 grain Federal. Here is the full write up -...

    I'm looking to pick up a pair off rifles, preferably in .308 Rem... Three first is the LOADED M1A. The second is the Remington 700, which seems to only come in .308 Win.. What is the actual difference between the two, besides manufacturer? My first thought is that it has to do with the NATO...

    Besides the magpul furniture, I am interested in how well the rifle performs. http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/psa-ak47-moe.html Magpul furniture is ugly on an AK-47. Why change perfection? The AK is fine like it is, why put all the fancy stuff on it? That is like putting modern...

    Between the 7.62x39, 300 AAC Blackout, or 30-30 Winchester, which one would be best suited for short range hunting in a post-shtf / teotwawki world? There is a small patch of woods on my property that deer pass through. If I were to set up a deer stand we are talking about a 50 - 75 yard shot...

    In a previous thread we talked about the Daniel Defense M4, PSA, BCM and the Colt 6920. That thread has a poll in it. If you have not voted please do so. The DDM4 is pretty much out of my grasp, at least right now. I have too many other projects going on to buy a DDM4. So here are the...

    The Ergo 4255 is an affordable vertical forearm pistol grip solution for just about anything with a picatinny rail. For this review the test platform was a Palmetto State Armory M4 carbine with pink Magpul and Egro furniture. There is an old saying, Keep It Simple Stupid, otherwise known as...

    I've been contemplating on whether or not to get a 300 blkout upper. I remember when AAC first introduced the round it was met with a rather large amount of resistance from many naysayers; copycat, an answer to a question never asked, blah blah...I thought it was a pretty good idea at the time...

    I have been told to carry the SKS over many other guns for a few different reasons (weight, for instance) I'm just wondering why this weapon is so much better. Any info would be appreciated.

    Just moved out of my parents house after graduating college, looking to invest in a battle rifle before I enlist as an officer in the marine corps. These are the ones I have looked at just wondering if anyone can share their experience. I have enough money to buy any of them but obviously the...

    I got this PSL kit I'm about to build. Anybody got experience with them? Im not looking for suggestions on getting other rifles, just interested in what people know of these rifles. I figured it would be a good counterpart for my ak build.

    Some kind of new disease has broke out, society has collapsed and no more trucks are rolling. Over the following weeks the power goes out, the water stops running, people stop driving their cars and trucks, friends, neighbors and strangers come around begging for food. The food preps are...

    Some kind of worse case situation has happened, you and your family have to bug out to the Bug Out Location, and how what? Keep in mind, this is a worse case situation, meaning you did not have time to grab any gear from your home. The only gear you have, is the gear you have stored at the...

    I am fortunate enough to get some overtime this week and use 100% of it on prepping. I would like recommendations on the following scenarios that I came up with for purchasing preps.

    I'm getting ready to start another job that is over 1 hour from the house. This means that I'm going to put together a GHB in case the shtf while I'm away from the house.
