  Sipik Disaster
Posted by: Bob - 10-31-2018, 02:13 AM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (9)

So I was at a gig and my Sipik, wish I usually use as my fretboard stage light on dark stages didn't work.  When I went to try a battery swap - the battery wouldn't come out!

Finally got enough off the battery out to note that the battery had a catastrophic failure.  The kind that meant that the battery wasn't coming out and an acid clean would be in order if it did.

Lesson:  Swap cheap @$$ Chinese battery immediately!!!!

  Pistol Braces Under Fire
Posted by: Ronin.45 - 10-30-2018, 04:30 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (7)

It was bound to happen. The last few years everyone has been flaunting their SBR workaround and the government is striking back. Right here in Ohio, they charged a guy for an unregistered SBR because of a brace and angled foregrip. They even filed to suppress the ATF letters that determined those were legal. That's the problem with determination vs law. Only one is binding.

  Interesting article from a Jewish man about Saturday's shootings

The article takes you briefly through the process that this man went through to decide to buy a gun. Not to spoil the article, but simply put, we live in a bad world and need tools to protect yourself and your loved ones.

  That next gun...
Posted by: David - 10-30-2018, 12:51 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (16)

Is it just me?

When I don't have any spare scratch laying around I see great deals and all kinds of stuff I could really use (read 'just want').  But when I do have some extra discretionary cash in the gun/stuff fund I either can't find a good deal or just don't have a clue what I really want.  

We've sent two deployments to the hurricane damaged areas.  As a result, our schedule looks like Swiss cheese.  Thus there as be mandatory and voluntary overtime aplenty.  I have it worked out with the wife that I get a little slice of the pie for my own fun money and have build up a nice little amount so far but the more I look the more I really don't see anything jumping out at me.

Don't know if I should get a good optic for one of the AR's.  Or maybe a better TAC light for the night stand gun.  Or cerakote one of my Glocks or maybe see if I can find a cheap Glock or whatever and make it a project gun.  

Just rambling this morning.  First day off since last week  Smile

  Walther PPS M2, an awesome EDC.
Posted by: TN.Frank - 10-29-2018, 08:16 PM - Forum: Testing and Evaluations - Replies (3)

Picked up a PPS M2 to carry so my wife can have her Shield back. Totally love the gun, grip is uber comfortable, have the option of 6, 7 or 8+1(of course I'll carry with the 8 round mag and a back up 8 round mag) and accuracy is pretty awesome too. Anyway, enjoy the video.

  Martin Milner End of Watch transmission
Posted by: David - 10-26-2018, 07:10 PM - Forum: The Pub - No Replies

I just saw this mentioned online and looked up the YT broadcast.  When a police officer dies, the term “end of watch” is used to communicate the date and time that an officer killed in the line of duty was declared dead. Frequently, a police department will also broadcast a final radio call to honor the fallen officer. When Martin Milner died in 2015, Shaaron Claridge performed an honorary final radio call for him… which had to have been extremely difficult for her.  Shaaron Claridge was a real LAPD dispatcher that was hired by Adam-12 to keep the show as real as possible.  She was the voice you heard in the radio transmission throughout the series.

I grew up on Adam-12 and have to admit that I teared up just now watching this.

  Florida in the news again

Suspect arrested in Florida in connection with suspicious packages sent to Democrats

A male suspect was arrested in Florida on Friday morning in connection with the rash of suspicious packages sent to prominent Democrats nationwide, law enforcement sources confirmed to Fox News.

A law enforcement source told Fox News that the suspect is a white male in his 50s, a former New Yorker, who lives in Aventura, Florida, who had prior arrests for terroristic threats. Several of the packages went through a U.S. postal facility in Opa-locka, which is less than 10 miles from Aventura.

  My new Buffo Toad weapon
Posted by: Bob - 10-25-2018, 11:41 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (5)

So, here in FL we have Buffo Toads - big, fat, and most important, Neuro-toxin exuding toads.  They can easily kill a cat/dog and are not good for you.

I tried to kill one with a sword (basic Katana - nothing fancy, but stabbing didn't work.  (Don't ask - long story I'll tell at SEP #20

I decided to 'go rogue' and discharge a firearm in city limits.  I took a .22 CCI shot shell, placed it in my S&W 15-22, and barrel sighted around into the back of the dragon-toad's head.

Dead toad.  Home & dog protected.  No law enforcement involved or neighbors alarmed.

  80% builds?
Posted by: David - 10-25-2018, 01:20 PM - Forum: Firearm Maintenance, modifications and ballistics - Replies (3)

I get emailers from a lot of the named companies for guns, ammo and gear that you guys also receive.  I see these 80% build things but to be honest, really don't know anything about any of it.  Looks like you can get all the parts so is this just 'build your own Glock'?  What parts have to go through an FFL?  Is it cheaper?
