Re: 8-gauge guns and ammo

I've read that because of the muzzle velocity limitations of black powder, those old-fashioned elephant guns used huge projectiles to compensate. They were replaced when the introduction of cordite and other such propellants made nitro express cartridges of "only" .600 caliber the better g...

Re: Boogaloo Bois

Just the same I'm glad nothing happened. Gun owners need these people to get off our side.

Re: 8-gauge guns and ammo

I have a few 8 gauge slugs that I got from an Uncle that worked in a paper mill. They were fired from a solid mount artillery style breach loaded smooth bore. You could feel the concussion 10ft away. Can't say I would want to shoulder fire one. I've seen a couple that were used in market hunting, b...

8-gauge guns and ammo

I'd thought these didn't really exist anymore other than a few antique guns and custom-crafted ammunition to load them. But I recently discovered the phenomenon of "kiln guns":

Someone may have to found "Pariah-net", for everyone and everything kicked out of the mainstream providers.

I'm saddened by the huge number of hoplophobes who see someone possessing a gun as an aggression against them.

Re: False Flag Warning -- January 17th 12PM Protest

It occurs to me that, tactically speaking, being bunched up together in a surrounded group is the worst possible place to be if one actually needs to use one's firearms.

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

My brother insists that while Biden does have a long history of being fervently pro-gun control, the narrowness of the Democratic majority and the need to not alienate crucial support will make gun control something he won't be willing to spend political capital on. I can only hope so. He also claim...

Re: Firearms price ranges

Now I wish I'd held off a few days and tried to buy one locally. But I've already put a hefty down payment so I'm locked in.

Re: Firearms price ranges

Okay, it's done: Springfield Saint Victor in .300BLK, 9" barrel. I'm looking at a six-month shipping time, which I fear may- one way or the other- be moot by that time.

Ironically, it's the new stimulus checks that will make this affordable for me.

Re: Firearms price ranges

That's it, I'm going to get either an AK pistol or an AR pistol in .300 Blackout while dealers will still sell and ship them (If it isn't already too late). To this end I need advice from those on the board more knowledgeable than I. I'm willing to spend what it takes to buy a decent gun but it does...

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

Agreed, so what do you think should happen? What steps should be taken to combat the threat. One thing to state the obvious, quite another to provoke action to make a difference. I honestly don't know. Ultimately there has to be enough support at the grassroots level; if 3/4 of the country doesn't ...

2021 is going to be a horrible year for gun rights

I'm depressed; with the now near-certain election of Biden and Harris, the gun control crowd are looking forward to pushing every anti-gun law and regulation they can. Widespread and well-funded gun prohibition movements are gearing up all across the country, and millions of hoplophobes see nothing ...
