    What is your SHTF last resort rifle and ammo? At the back of my ammunition storage closet, on the bottom shelf, are two ammo cans filled with 7.62x39. More commonly used calibers are towards the front of the closet - 223 Remington, 9mm, 45acp, 22 long rifle, 30-30 Winchester, 308 Winchester...

    As we all know just about all types of ammo is sold out. For the first time in my life I can not find 30-30 Winchester, or even 270 Winchester. You want to know what I can find? 280 Remington / 7mm Express. In the mid-1990s I asked for and received as a Christmas present a Remington model...

    ...I think I will take my chances with the AR. No plans to dump it.

    How many of us have stockpiled some AR15 bandoliers? I am sitting here thinking of various situations, especially with the coronavirus (COVID-19). Worse case situation friends and family members bug out to the farm and I arm them with an AR-15, or other weapon. So what about magazines? What...

    I thought about titling this thread "Your absolute must have before the 2020 elections", but thought that topic may be too narrow. However, if someone wants to talk about the 2020 elections that is fine also. As we enter a new decade, and with the upcoming elections what is your "must have?"...

    Someone recommend a good quality and accurate 223 Remington / 5.56mm ammunition. I have a Palmetto State Armory Freedom upper, and it is not very accurate with heavier ammunition. Best results were with 50 or 55 grain ammunition. As the weight of the bullet moved up, the spread increased...

    Guys and gals, what are some of your prepping plans for 2020? This is going to be a small political rant mixed in with prepping related topics. The first thing that comes to mind is the typical beans, bullets and band aids. Beans To address the beans, I would like to expand the fruit orchard...

    There was an event today that has me rethinking the lever action 30-30 as a SHTF survival rifle. While at the local sandpit sending some rounds downrange my Marlin 336 in 30-30 had a double feed. To resolve the issue the lever had to be removed - with a screw driver and punch pin. The rounds...

    How many AR-15s, AK47s, FALs... are enough? The title of the thread is battle rifles. Lets skip the semantics and splitting hairs and group all semi-automatic medium and large rifle calibers together. If it was designed for a military role since the 1940s, how many are enough? The issue...

    Someone recommend a good optic for a Marlin 336 lever action in 30-30 Winchester. I am currently looking at a Burris Fullfield II 2x-7x-35mm. Over the decades my "go to" optics have been Nikon. They have provided years of reliability on various rifles my family owns. Then there is the...

    A local gun store has a used Bushmaster M16 A3 in stock. It has the removable carry handle, 20 inch barrel and standard front sight. If I remember right, asking price is around $500. Rifle seems to be in ok / good shape. I did not break the rifle down and look at the inside. Just looked at...

    Local gun store has a Ruger American Rifle in 308 Winchester for something like $450. I do not remember the "exact" price, but it was somewhere in that price range. Camo stock Scope mounts No scope. I am thinking about putting a rifle on lay away for an early christmas present to myself. I...

    The rifle was a PTR 91, GI model; the ammunition was Wolf Polyformance steel-cased. I shot off of a table with a gun rest. Iron sights only; no scope. The 1st target is at 25 yds. The squares are 1”, so the bulls-eye has a 2” diameter. I made a windage adjustment to move the POI...

    Has anyone tried this? And maybe a review? http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts/stock-parts/buttstocks/ak-47-zhukov-s-stock-folding-prod75053.aspx The Magpul Zhukov-S Stock is a no-compromise folding stock for the modern AK. I see the reviews on Brownells, but wanted to hear from the folks here.

    What BCM upper is comparable to the LE6920? There are so many options on their site and I can't get them on the phone. Is there going to be a large weight difference between them? I'm looking for something basic that's really close to the Colt. Would I be able to mount a hand guard or light on...

    My friend sent me a new SAR 2. I say new because he purchased it NIB circa 2003 (The date on the front trunion is 2002). He NEVER fired it and because he knew I love AK's, he sent it (and 5 30 rnd mags) to me. I took it straight to my shop and began..... Chucked it in the lathe and thread...

    I am going to share my AR-15 predator hunting build. Please post your build, or what you like or would change. Over the past couple of years coyotes have been stealing my chickens. I thought losses have not been “that” bad, but the time has come to take action. A few days ago I was looking...
