    Do you think a high powered air rifle has a place in a shtf scenario as a quiet way to take small game or would it just be a waste of space?

    The only gun magazine I buy is the Guns & Ammo Annual <YYYY> Buyer's Guide (just "Gun Annual" now), specifically for the listings in the second half of the magazine. It's nice for seeing what's coming onto the market, what of the new cartridges are finding traction, etc. Usually I page through...

    So today I picked up a 1987 Marlin 30as. It's a 336 with a birch stock essentially. The internals had some nice carbonized...gunk:xeye:, the finish on the stock was foggy, and there was a good deal of surface rust over the barrel and a bit of the receiver. I bought it anyways, for $99, and took...

    does anyone think that $4.50 is a good deal on standard metal ar15 magazines?

    This dude thinks so and did it by carrying an AR-15 into the world's busiest airport. Of course he got approached by officers but he did walk out with his rifle. Guy has balls that's for sure! What do you guys think, good for him or he is an idiot...

    Does anyone have any ideas for a rifle / shotgun case that doesn't look like one? I live in an apartment complex where anything that isn't screwed down disappears within minutes. Every package delivered by FedEx gets stolen if I don't grab it immediately. So I don't really want to advertise...

    Hey all, so I'm getting my PAL/RPAL license soon (sent the application a few days ago eeekk!!) and already thinking about my choice of first firearm. Now I know everyone's going to tell me to get a .22, but I live in Canada, and we have special tolerances for .22's, and they aren't going...

    I have read countless articles and websites about the best guns, weapons, etc to keep around and was wondering what other everyone else really thinks not just a set list made by someone on the internet. I would enjoy recommendations to research and possibly try. also, accessories for the...

    Hello I saw some videos about people who had home made air rifles. But I had some questions, how does it actually work? Where is the air stored and how does it trigger the bullet? I've already checked some tutorials, but all videos used different mechanisms. Image: Video...

    I just picked up a new stainless steel 300 win mag, I have no complaints about the rifle other than the facts my barrel is highly reflective. I've painted rifle barrels before with your standard krylon high temp stuff, but those were all carbon steel. Would I use the same high temperature paint...

    Alright, found these surplus Spanish Mausers in .308 for $169.95 for sale at Samco Global Arsenal and I have question. Are these rifles safe to shoot ? I heard that these rifles were chambered in 7x57 Mauser and they converted them to .308 Winchester(7.62x51 NATO). Also I heard that .308 are...

    since i haven't seen any info of this company in this website, i think it warrants a thread to inform potential LR shooters looking to purchase their first custom built rifle. Reading the reviews on the web from owners with firsthand experience, it would be wise to avoid this company at all...

    I regularly travel to the downtown area of a very large and dangerous city for work about 150 miles from home. The walk home would take probably 10 days to 2 weeks or maybe longer, passing though or near 4 medium cities and many smaller cities to get home assuming I can just walk home with no...

    (in a hypothetical SHTF scenario) In the event that you're carrying your rifle openly and intend to use it or are at risk of having to use it, how do you plan on carrying extra magazines, if at all? Why? Obviously the answer could differentiate between situations. Therefore, let's suppose...
  19. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    Let me preface this statement, by saying I love the idea of hunting, I love the outdoors, I love the outdoors, I love knowing where my food comes from. I've caught my food before by snaring and fishing, in a wilderness program. I recently joined the "firearms owner community" and I want to get...

    I have a birthday coming up and I need some advice. I'm thinking of either: A. Getting a Mosin Nagant and a lot of Ammo, I've seen spam cans at .19cts a round, and rifles around 100$. B. Getting a lot of ammo for a rifle I have: a VZ.24. It's 8mm and has similar ballistics to the 762X54R I...
