  Ammo Armor Magazine Protector
Posted by: David - 06-24-2019, 04:43 PM - Forum: Packs and Gear - Replies (1)

Anyone have/use this product? I just ordered 4 (buy 3 get 1 free) for $33.97. Ordered them for the P365. Two in FDE and two in black. When I first saw these I wasn't sure I'd really have a use for them. But I tend to carry an EDC sling bag with me and usually toss in a mag or two so I figured this product would help protect them from getting banged around. Also, if I'm going somewhere, like a wedding or some other situation where I'm in dressy clothes I might try pocket carrying the P365 and seeing if it's doable as opposed to my LCP. I figured it if it I won't be using my normal OWB mag holder so pocket holder like this may work. Figured I'd try it anyway.

Anyone already use them (for any pistol)?

  Primary Arms 1-6x for 7.62x39/300BO
Posted by: Bob - 06-22-2019, 03:14 AM - Forum: Defense - Replies (3)

Finally took my main AK to the range and got my Primary arms 1-6x zoomed in!  Love it.  Didn't know how I was gonna feel about the 1x, or the chevron reticle but both worked out just fine.

Good to go now for the Zombie Apocalypse, or whatever. This AK is really accurate, and the scope has some cool range/windage markings. May have to get some good 7.62 x 39 and see how far out I can legitimately reach out and "touch" someone on 6x...

  FBI Qualification
Posted by: Ronin.45 - 06-16-2019, 01:59 AM - Forum: Defense - Replies (9)

We ran the new FBI qualifier tonight for our weekly match. It's 10 strings of fire with 50 total rounds and an overall par time of 63sec. It's also the monthly challenge over on Glocktalk.
Other than one person that went 0.16sec over par on a string and another that accidentally released their magazine when switching to left hand, all of us were more than qualified to attend Quantico ?.
I was well under par on all strings(35.91sec total) and all shots were well within the FBI targets dimensions. Probably went too slow on some strings because I was getting tiny groups in the center instead of using the whole area allotted. I need to push a little more and not focus so much on accuracy.
I'll try to post a pic of my target, but that hasn't been working lately.

  My Range
Posted by: mac66 - 06-14-2019, 12:18 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (16)

Most of you know that I have some hunting property in northern Michigan.

 I set up a small range on it.  I just added the orange knock down Champion targets to it. I can go back 50 yards.  I also have a food plot.  I can move the steel targets to a stand in the food plot where I can shoot out to 170 yards.

The left side is for center fire, the right side is for 22s. The round plates are from shootingtargets7.com as are two of the three silhouettes and the plate on the center fire side.

In case you're interested the first three centerfire targets as from left to right... 3/8", the last one is 5/8". The 3/8" can handle up to 30-06 and the 5/8" can handle up to 50 BMG at 100 yards. Both will also handle 12ga slug/buck. The rimfire side plates are 3/16" which can handle all rimfires and up to 380s.

I've since ordered some bowling pin shaped steel targets for the center fire side and a another set (one of each) of Champion knock downs for the 22 side.  Like most other things, it is a work in progress.

Being painted.... Haven't decided whether to hang them or put them on hinges to fall over when hit. They actually come with carriage bolt for the bottom that holds them up to use as a knock over. Bowling pins are 1/4" which can handle up to 45 acp.

On your main home, what kind of roof do you have?  How old? 

We had our roof replaced about 3 years ago give-or-take.  Three dimensional shingles with a secondary barrier.  Pretty much a lifetime shingle.  The secondary barrier is in the advent of wind damage to the roof during a storm to keep water out.  Our roofs in Florida get beat on pretty hard by the sun of course.  We all have ridge vents to help rid the attic of heat.  The attic still gets blazing hot but it does help a bit.

  Sipik sk68 - gift package
Posted by: bdcochran - 06-12-2019, 09:28 PM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (2)

14 lights came in.  Part of my gifting/family prep plan.  Have a number of nieces/nephews and my sister lives a mile away.  Everyone has a car and some place that he or she lives.  Most of them would never buy a pocket knife, a leatherman tool or a flashlight. 

So, here is the individual package cost - under $6!  zip lock baggie, 4 aa batteries in a RC plastic battery holder, and the light.  If the flashlight does not get hot, the average time life of an AA battery in a Sipik sk68 is about 1.5 hours.  So, the package might get someone through the night - and it is a waterproof package.

In the past - referencing three nieces who are graduating college in the east.  One year, it was restored pink Swiss Army knives.  Last year, it was Cold Steel folders.  I pointed out to mom that the girls would be going to parties, cutting cheese and making sandwiches, etc.  Not a word about self defense!

Who has what chainsaw? I'm trying to decide on what to get and I'm bouncing back and forth between Stihl and Husqvarna.

I'm leaning towards the Husqvarna 18 inch Rancher model 440 or the 20 inch Rancher 450. I think that size will be big enough to do most of the cutting we need completed without being to big.

Dad has a 16 inch Stihl model, so looking for one just a little larger to handle some of the bigger stuff. 

Open to suggestions because any purchase still has to go through the finance committee.
