Re: Xmas 2017 Loot

I forgot to mention. I gave my son a lower and a rifle kit. We built it today. I confessed that he could have built it by himself, but part of the gift was selfish - building it together meant I got to have him over and have a small project together. :D

I've officially outgrown my safe. You know it's tight when you're alternating rifles upright and upside down and separating AR's so they fit into smaller spaces. Guess I know what a chunk of this years refund is going to. If you started a thread on your research, others of us could ride your coat t...

Re: Academy Sports Lawsuit

My understanding of federal law is that long guns can be sold to any legal firearms owner, including non-residents, as long as they are legal to own in the person's state of residence. Thus, a PRK resident can't hop over to Reno or Vegas and buy an AR-15 to take home. That's exactly what the ATF FA...

I don't know knife terminology like the rest of you, but here goes.

I like the weight and the size. The shape of the scales is quite comfortable. Compound grind (? based on a quick google). The whole thing is pretty, and the price was right so that I won't be afraid to use it. :D
