General Gun Discussion / Re: Poll: "*Arsenal*" or pathetic?

i don't have a 60, but i've shot several and they were
tack drivers. probably the junk ammo they foisted off
on everyone while the .22 ammo hoarding was going on.
my BIL had some that wouldn't even pop off

Yes I think that is a pathetic collection not an Arsenal.
wish I had those SKS mags tho as I would redo mine so those fit.

unless something's changed, those magazine were less than $20.00,
about $10.00-$12.00 if i remember right.
you "modify" your SKS by removing the stock 10 round flip out
doo dad and rocking the new one in place.
i put my 10 round back on cuz the 30 stuck out too far when i didn't
need it to

paid about 15-20 dollars for it from a dude selling his ex-cop/deputy father's
briefcase of (throwdowns i suspect) pistolas.
i wish i'd bought the whole works, probably could had the whole thing for a c-note.

funny, but i've never had any kind of misfire or hiccup from any
"saturday night special" i've ever owned, even the ravens or jennings
that everyone hates.

just me- the 3 red dot sights i had weren't satisfactory at all.
if they ever make one that self-adjusts the intensity of the
dot i might try it, but i doubt it.
any of my firearms have to be ready to use immediately when
they're brought to hand without any kind of adjustment to anything
other than clicking off a safety, or maybe pulling a hammer back

i seldom clean my firearms as thoroughly as i used to.
most all get wiped off if they've been toted out and
about, and the bore cleaned pretty good if they've
been fired extensively.
a few weeks ago i fired my john hinkley special about
50 + - times at the outpost since i couldn't remember
the last time (if ever) i'd fired it. of course, it ran through
all the rounds without a hiccup, most being Klinton-era
probably take my jennings out next time

funny  (funny strange-not funny comical) now that home boy is in
jail charged with capital murder that all these folks that dint see
nudden declare that home boy is innocent and didn't do anything,
but they still can't say who did.
no kind of description at all. strange in this day of most all of the masses
toting around and using a cell phone every waking hour that nobody
has a "video" of the whole thing.
if i had it, i'd bet a c-note that the whole mess is online on somebody's
yoo-floob or farce book account.

from what i saw on the "news", out of the estimated 750 or so
party goers, none will cooperate with law enforcement and make
any kind of useful statement.
FWIW there was a rally/vigil here about 1- 1 1/2 miles away from
here yesterday for one of the Greenville victims, and it got shot up too.
nobody would try to identify the perpetrators from that mess either.

Gun News & Laws / Re: I am sooo glad I don't live in California!
« on: October 19, 2019, 01:36:36 PM »

California always was it's own worst enemy

actually, IMHO, that's not the case - starting in the '60s 'twas the carpetbaggers and feather merchants who brought their screwed up, liberal ideology from other States across the Country and turned a wonderful State into the festering hellhole it is today

Pretty much ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^  like Texas is fast becoming ^ ^ ^ ^ ^ ^

when i hear someone from some other place talking about "back home. ."
and the way things were "done back there. ." and then they start in on
". .these tech-suns. ."   well I just want to scream and puke until I can't
do either one anymore.  :bangheadonwall:  :bangheadonwall:

I never could figure why the bleepin' eff someone would move to a place
they couldn't stand, then stay there and bitch and moan about it the whole
blanking time. someone would have to be lower than the lowest fool to leave
such a veritable paradise.  :thinker:     :th_nuts:

i don't reckon i have that many years anymore, but i do worry about
the young folks coming up now that won't get to experience the way
things used to be before the influx of all these outside folks and the
way they try to re-mold this state into the place they came from (the "paradise"   :th_thicon_funny:)

. . . .  buy another one out in the middle of nowhere far away from other people, so that we can avoid dealing with this s*** in the first place

even then, you still have to do your research. there are a lot of places that were
decent and relatively crime free when i was a kid that are nests of criminal activity
these days.
one place i looked at before buying was interesting, but it turned out the guy had
been dealing out of his house at the place, and may have even had a small lab there.
i could just imagine waking up in the wee hours and having some tweaker pointing
a shotgun at my nose and asking me " whurs jim bob at ? he owes me for a quarter pound. . ."
or some b.s. like that. i was also wary of using the well since i didn't know what may
be down there, or what might be hidden or buried on and around the place.

i have found that you need to buy enough land for a sort of buffer zone around you
if you want to have any kind of peace and tranquility. and be fairly far away from any
sort of town, even if it's just a 1 dollar store and 1 gas station/convenience store and
a walmart kind of town. it'll surprise a lot of people how many "isolated" places are
full of methheads that are supposedly fine upstanding citizens

when i was a kid, the keys were left in the cars, the doors on the houses
were seldom locked, and everyone left everyone else's sh*t alone and didn't
mess with anything that wasn't theirs.
i personally think it should still be like that, but it's far from it.
these days, if something gets stolen from your residence or wherever, you're
treated as if you did something wrong, something illegal, something immoral
and out of line.
" don't you have insurance ? " " don't you have surveillance cameras ?"
" you know you can't have expensive things like that without attracting criminals. . "
i've heard all that b.s. many a time, and i'm sure many others have too.

oh yeah. . ." they've probably made it to mexico by now. ."
to me that just means they're not interested enough to go look
for my property like they're paid to do.

nobody wants to defend your home and property and life,
but they don't want you to either.
it's a big crock of stinking doo-doo IMO

of course, you can get whatever you want and can afford.

a cab ?
maybe for 90+ acres of hay meadow or open field.
before my friend passed away, we used to work his
89 (?) acres of hay meadow, and there were days when
a cab would have been nice.
mowing a 20 + - parcel ? i could get it done before i
got a good sweat going. think of all those old men that
used to mow 100 or so with an old gas 8N or the like.
i used to run the rake on my friend's place with a MT jd
i had at the time. all that radiator heat coming off at me

According to the Liberals all people should have the same amount of wealth. If the laws are skewed to give everyone the same wealth, what is the impudus for anyone to work or try harder.? Why work at all? So I am going to put all my efforts to the betterment and glory of the State?? Not a suitable motivation for me.

^ ^ ^ ^ exactly ! ^ ^ ^ ^

i do for sure miss me some Radio Shack  :th_thicon_cry:

I've yet to figure out the envy and jealousy that
folks have toward the wealthy.  :thinker:

" you're a child. . . ." says it all.

he IS a child and a p***y of the first degree

funny you should post this.
i noticed the same thing here locally last time i was
looking for some miniature light bulbs to repair an
airbag indicator light. one trip they had everything i
could have asked for, and the next it's a ghost town.
maybe a half dozen employees in the whole store if
that many, maybe that many customers including me.
no stock on the shelves whatsoever, meaning common
items they normally would have dozens of.
i'll miss their good battery selection.

there are times that having a store with your goods
right there right now is WAY better than
diddling your phone and buying something online if
no other reason than not having to shell out a minimum
ten spot for freight that might have been $3.00 or less
not that many years ago.

i prefer to have a local store for many other items as
well, especially firearms. you can't beat an eyeball
hands-on inspection
