Re: Parts of Remington live on

Over the summer, the 115 gr FMJ 9mm ammo we received the most of and the most often was from Remington. I think it was a contract over run as the UPC code was not one the store initially had nor was it one easily found in their literature. The box also looked a little different from the normal UMC p...

Re: Boogaloo Bois

I think the house on the southeast corner of 66th St and Lynwood Blvd in Richfield is where they "Bois" buy their uniforms. For about a decade the resident has been selling floral shirts as the main part of his garage sale. I think that is where Seismic Sam bought many of his. Or, the resi...

Re: Boogaloo Bois

John is a pretty staunch Democrat too, at least he was when I last talked to him a couple years ago. We aren't more than acquaintances but several of the characters in his books are based off people we know in common. His portrayal of Frankie is eerily accurate...

Re: Biden Says He Will ‘Defeat the NRA’ While in Office

It seems the L.A. County Prosecutor is actually taking a realistic look at bringing California to the modern age of Justice. California may be implementing Betty McCollum's idea of allowing the voting age to be lowered to 16 yoa and consider them adults. If so, one wouldn't have as much need for pro...

Re: 2021 is going to be a horrible year for gun rights

I believe it was patterned off Minnesota's version of the wetlands bill- if one acre is drained, two more have to be built to compensate.

Didn’t EP outlaw gun sales within city limits?


That would have prevented Arnzen Arms, Gander Outdoors, and Scheels from opening and selling firearms. I think Gander is closed again after the light rail project stalled.

Re: Recommendations for a night scope Illuminator

Auto knives are legal if you are a collector. Sorry, missed that exemption. What constitutes a collector and if you are can you carry and use your collectibles?[/quote] As it was explained to me, one can now possess an auto knife and take it to shows and the like but cannot carry it on their person...

Re: Rifle destroyed. Shooter safe.

I should clarify that by container I did not mean a separate container as in an MTM type ammo box but a bag or 30 or 50 cal ammo box for each cartridge I'm bringing to the range. It can make for several trips to and from the vehicle and the bench but it helps to keep rounds apart.

Re: Shotgun reloading. Is it worth it?

What’s the drill for? For roll crimping as seen currently for slugs and in the old days with a card at the end to hold in the shot. Best guess I can come with regarding price on buckshot is about $1.75 per 5 round box. That is buying in bulk of 11 pounds of shot, 5000 primers, 8# of powder, and 500...

Re: Looking to pick up a M1 Carbine

I don't recall seeing an M-1 Carbine at Gunstop when I was there a couple weeks ago but I wasn't looking hard for one either. I normally spot them pretty quickly but nothing caught my eye then. You might try Wolf's Den in Hugo, I've seen a couple there pretty regularly though they were used, not new...

Re: Rifle destroyed. Shooter safe.

I wouldn't doubt one can fit a 7mm/08 cartridge into a 25/06 chamber. Saw a guy fire a 7x57 (which is longer than a 7mm/08) in a 270 once and he would have pulled the trigger again if I wouldn't have stopped him after seeing gas escape from the action. The case looked a little strange too as there w...

Re: Vaccination Cards

My main reason for supporting a vaccination program with COVID is that I don’t see any way to stop the governor and MDH’s continued acts without it. So, am I understanding this correctly - you are promoting vaccination for political rather than medical reasons? That there are no other routes to tak...

Re: Rights restoration

I didn't think it was possible for someone convicted of a felony (and some lesser crimes) to have their gun rights restored except through a Presidential pardon which would only apply if a Federal crime. Has something changed lately? Minnesota and other states have provisions for the restoration of...
