      Nearest store selling more than 10 rnd mags just over the line

      There are stores right here in central Maryland that sell “pinned” mags that only hold 10 rounds - no need to go out of state.

      Please people, don’t give MGA good reasons when they return

      Good luck with that - the people who love to pontificate on subjects like these, yet who freely admit that they don't know much, also aren't actually interested in learning about it - it's much easier to spout off about your personal beliefs when you don't have facts to get in the way of things.

      Please people, don’t give MGA good reasons when they return

      This is a pet peeve of mine and I try to educate when the opportunity arises because it is so often misused. Jive: (pretty sure we weren't looking to get down and boogie) 1. a lively style of dance popular especially in the 1940s and 1950s, performed to swing music or rock and roll. 2. a form...

      Powder Available Thread

      If I didn't already have a fair amount of other powder suitable for 223/308, I'd jump on that.

      Carry Belts...I'm doing it wrong.

      Has anyone tried 1791 gun leather products? I bought a 1911 holster that seems to be ok, so I'd assume their belts are also going to be pretty solid.

      FDE AR15 Stripped Upper and Lower

      For what it's worth, you can do your own if you have a mind to. I did this with Brownell's Aluma Hyde II. The color is supposed to be Magpul FDE, but as you can see, it's not quite the same as the shade of FDE on stock and pistol grip, or on the scope mount. I kinda like it though, and maybe...

      Consignment Guns

      If that didn't have a silly-long barrel on it, I'd be all over it.

      Finishing an 80 lower

      Yep. Exactly, and that's why I didn't go into detail. Left to their own devices, the anti's don't know jack shit. Carolyn McCarthy had no clue what a barrel shroud was. She thought it was "that thing at the shoulder that goes up." Here's the problem. We go into great detail sometimes in...

      Finishing an 80 lower

      Sometimes the posts I see regarding this kind of thing are borderline ridiculous. I won't go into the many ways why some of the posts above are ridiculous, but they certainly are.

      Texas judge rules that people under felony indictment have the right to buy guns under the Second Amendment.

      I think it would come down to the idea that the question on the form is unconstitutional, so therefore it should be disregarded in its entirety as if the question and the dishonest answer were never actually there in the first place. A case like this would be easier if it wasn't a dirtbag...

      New starter reloading kit vs Buying used press and buy the rest piece by piece from amazon/ebay to complete a kit

      I bought a Lee Challenger kit - I think I used everything in that kit at least once. There are a few small things that didn't get much, if any use - I don't think I ever used cutter and lock stud, but everything else got at least a little bit of use. I still use the Lee Perfect Powder...

      Texas judge rules that people under felony indictment have the right to buy guns under the Second Amendment.

      With the idea in mind that we're not all Constitutional Scholars, it would be helpful if either the thread title or the contents of the thread had some kind of brief explanation of what the thread is trying to convey. I'm in the process of weeding my way through the document to figure out what...

      Snake gun (revolver) advice.

      There are lots of assumptions in that post - it's also a whole lot of doin'. Snakes are everywhere. I see them in my yard now and again - really only rat snakes and garter snakes. I leave them alone - I figure that most of the time they aren't bothering me so I'm not going to bother them...

      Snake gun (revolver) advice.

      My grandpa was born in a dugout sod house on a homestead claim along the banks of the Frenchman River in Chase County, Nebraska. When the homestead claim was worked off, my great grandfather sold that piece of ground and bought the piece that became the family farm south and west of my hometown...

      OC traffic stop in O.C.

      Coming into this thread a bit late - this has probably been discussed somewhere already but this is my hot take on it after reading the original post. One of the things that I find surprising regarding MD law enforcement is that you would think that after such a major decision that has affected...

      Ruger 10/22s: disappointing

      I own a 10/22 for much the same reason. A buddy of mine got one when he was a teenager and still has it. He talked it up a lot when we were kids too, so when I stumbled into a good deal on a used 10/22 Deluxe, I snagged it. Like you, I got it to the range and thought, "meh" - it's ok, but...

      MSP Got one... Instructor caught cutting corners, permits invalidated.

      I completely agree that it deterred a lot of folks. I pushed through a couple of purchases under the wire prior to October of 2013, and I was bound and determined to not get an HQL on principle alone. Then I got the itch to buy another pistol, so I broke down a year later and got it. Then I...

      CZ457 Varmint scope recommendations

      The original scope I bought for one of my ARs, that later ended up going on my Bighorn Origin build for a bit before I sold it, was a Cabela's brand 3-12x44. It came in right under the $200 price point once my mil discount was applied, and I have to say, for no more than it cost and for what it...

      What did you do at your reloading bench today?

      That’s a lot! Do you do CAS? In my own efforts, I loaded 50 rounds of 45 ACP as my first ever loaded with Titegroup: 200 gr plated round nose - Xtreme 5.0 gr Titegroup To date all of my 45 reloading has been with Bullseye, W231/HP38 or Power Pistol - PP specifically for 185 gr Hornady XTP...
