That’s a good boy you got there, my son said the same thing before. I told my wife if I was single my house would smell of gun oils! She hates the smell.

So how was that Enfield of yours? Hoping all was ok!

I like several songs from Def Leppard. Most of their biggest hits were from the 80s. But I enjoy rock and country music from the 60s the most.

I thought about removing the safety, looked it up on YouTube, doesn’t seem very difficult but the only problem that I see after the safety is removed is that there is a hole on the side of the frame. If there was something (a screw or a pin) to fill the hole I would remove it. Mine is also a range gun and I never set the safety on.

Unfortunately mine does have a aftermarket safety. I like the Yugo models more than the other countries because it’s magazine holds a extra round.

OK, so after thinking about your post for about 10 minutes I disassembled my Tokarev. I just took the pin out and put it back in with a punch. It took me all of 5 mins, it took a little patience to make sure that the swivel was centered and with a couple of light hits it fell back into place. Good luck.

I never had a problem with surplus 7.62x25 on my Yugo M57 (and my surplus was made in the 1950s). Replacing the pin and the swivel shouldn’t be too hard. Sorry that you had such a bad experience with that ammo.

General Gun Discussion / Re: ..3D Printer firearms..
« on: July 31, 2018, 04:29:30 PM »
A lot online sources are freaking out about the so-called “undetectable and untraceable plastic 3D ghost guns” (not surprisingly). Some mention that the gun must have some metal parts like the firing pin for example, but only with a sentence or two. However no one, zero, nada, media sources are reporting that bullets are made out of different metals. Which I would think be detectable by a metal detector.

The foolish argument that the media repeats over and over about how 3D printers now allow criminals, mentality ill, etc to now obtain guns...fails to report that anyone can build a gun with parts found from a hardware store if you really wanted too. Criminals have built guns while in their jail cell, just go down to Huntsville, the prison museum there displays several of the confiscated guns and other weapons.   

I think that plastic guns made from a 3D printer isnt really going to be a problem. Sounds like the crazy fear of the plastic Glock, when it first appeared on the market.

I’m no lawyer either. Let’s talk about guns I have a few of them and so do most of everyone here... 9mm, .40 cal, or .45, whats your favorite?

Off Topic Discussion (NON FIREARM RELATED) / Iran lol!
« on: July 23, 2018, 10:26:50 PM »
Iran says:
“America must understand well that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars”.

Trump tweets:
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!

Iran tweets:
COLOR US UNIMPRESSED: The world heard even harsher bluster a few months ago. And Iranians have heard them —albeit more civilized ones—for 40 yrs. We’ve been around for millennia & seen fall of empires, incl our own, which lasted more than the life of some countries. BE CAUTIOUS!

What do you think? I would say the mother of all wars was WW2, other than the Tehran conference, they didn’t contribute much in the mother——, so they shouldn’t underestimate the US. Iran and even that other crazy nation, North Korea, are mini Nazi Germany and Stalin Soviet Union, respectfully, both we beat.

👍 Trump

I carry a Makraov..
ya mean one of these ?



Yeah, that’s the one, mine doesn’t have those fine wood grips on them, my grips are the original reddish brown plastic with a star in the middle. I like the safety of the double action and it holds 8+1, which isn’t bad for a pocket carry.

I carry a Makraov daily as my CC, but I rotate my Glock 22 and my M&P 9 in my car.

General Gun Discussion / US model of 1917 article
« on: July 21, 2018, 10:20:56 PM »
Has anyone read their American Rifleman magazine? Nice article on the model 1917! One of my favorite and largely underrated World War I Rifle.

Well the last couple of months have been busy and full of ups and downs, the reason why I haven’t been on the forum much lately. Got a new job, well same job just different school and district, and that the baby will be a GIRL! Oh Lord, I have a teenage daughter and I now know what’s coming again... but I’m happy, but still shocked that my, once thought “finished” family of 2 children will soon be a family of 3 children.

In other news, I can’t wait for this summer, need to hit the range again.

19
I laugh at the fact that there isn’t any brand name calling for the shotgun and the assault rifle, but instead of saying two handguns, wait those are Glocks! And 4 guns....My children by age 9 have shot more guns than this guy owned, but that’s the difference between Hawaii and Texas.
