  Social unrest or worse?
Posted by: David - 06-25-2018, 07:08 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (22)

I'm sure by now everyone has seen the stories where the Home Land Security Secretary was verbally attacked at a restaurant as well as her home:

Protesters gather outside Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen's home

Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen booed at Mexican restaurant

Additionally, Sarah Sanders the Press Secretary was booted out of a restaurant by a libtard owner (imagine someone kicking someone out of a restaurant biased on the color of their skin or religion)!  And Maxine Waters, the unhinged Socialist Congresswoman is calling for it to continue and even intensify:

Maxine Waters shows why the Sarah Huckabee Sanders-Red Hen story is extremely important

Trump accuses 'low IQ' Rep. Waters of advocating 'harm' against his supporters

This has gotten past the point of just curious, isolated incidents.  It has become violent (Congressmen attacked while practicing at a softball field as just one example), and way over the top.  This is a pattern that Socialist/Communist and frankly Nazi's have conducted in the past.  The direct polarization of the country and clashes of violence to anyone that dares to oppose their Socialist/Communist world view.  

Tucker Carlson and Dan Bongino hit the nail on the head in their concern that full-out/full-fledged violence is at the door just as it's been in other countries in the past.  Take a look at the video interview if you haven't already seen it.  The quote from Mr. Bongino that really stood out and caught me attention was this;

Conservatives think Liberals are people with bad ideas.  Liberals think Conservatives are bad people with ideas.  Big, tactical difference!

  Extended base plates for added capacity
Posted by: David - 06-24-2018, 05:36 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (1)

I've been trying out some OEM and aftermarket extended base plates on my G43 and G26 lately.  For the G43 I got a couple of the Tango Down +2 base plates and a +1 and a +2 Hyve base plate.  All of them seem to be working very well with the exception that the Hyve sometimes doesn't hold open the slide on the last round.  Not particularly a deal breaker but something to note.  I like the TD because they come with their own spring.  I like the Hyve because it fills in that small spot at the rear so that the back of the grip flows into the mag.  Just feels better in the hand, though I don't think it will necessarily affect shooting one way or the other.

Got my thinking about the G26.  I have both OEM and Pierce +2's on most of my G26 mags and a couple of no-name +2's.  The no-name aren't as pretty i.e. look like kinda cheaper plastic but actually have worked extremely well.  The Glock and Pierce work will except I get this annoying rattle inside the mag if I load it with a full 12 rounds.  If I load 11 rounds no rattle.  Funny that the no-name brand doesn't have that problem.  

Tooling around on Ebay a week and a half ago and I saw a no-name that looked just like the Hyve without the logo for half the price.


[Image: JK221B%20(2).jpg]

Gave it a try since it was half the price of the Hyve.  Arrived yesterday and went on without issue.  I like the look and just like the G43, it fills the hand on the rear portion of the grip better.  I loaded 12 rounds and no rattle so I take that as a good sign.  I cycled rounds by hand a couple of times and no issues.  So I'm going to put this down as a good deal, for now.  Time will tell but I don't suspect any issues will crop up.

  Cool Ammo Alert
Posted by: Bob - 06-21-2018, 01:46 AM - Forum: Defense - Replies (1)

Was at W-mart grabbing ammo for some range time last weekend.  Saw Winchester White Box 9mm  124g Nato.  I got a 150 rd box and rang 5 - 15 rd mags of it through my HK USP.

While I'd say most WWB was just "ok" I thought this was pretty darn good!  Out of 75 rounds I put all but about 10 in the red at 5-7 yards or so.  I really liked this compared to the regular 115g standard stuff.  Was it Speer/Hornady, or even really good Federal?  No.  However - excellent for the price!

Give it a try....

  Got a new light for Father's day
Posted by: bmyers - 06-19-2018, 12:08 PM - Forum: Lighting - Replies (2)

For those that know me, it is no surprise that I got a new flashlight for Father's Day.


I have played around with it in the house, but the claim to fame for this light is the throw on it. I'm hoping this weekend to get it out and give it a try.


A review of the light I found on YouTube.

  Freedom Munitions Files Bankruptcy Petition
Posted by: bmyers - 06-12-2018, 02:23 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (5)

Wasn't sure where to post this:

According to a public filing in Nevada, Freedom Munitions and its parent company Howell Munitions, recently petitioned the court for bankruptcy protection. Information subitted to TFB from several anonymous sources pointed to two cases outlined at inforuptcy.com, showing filing dates of 6/8/2018 and 6/11/2018. Information is slim at the moment, but the court information states that both Freedom Munitions’ assets and liabilities lays somewhere between $10M and $50M.
I hate to see this because I order a lot of ammo from them. I have noticed lately that they have been out of stock on a lot of their ammo, I guess this explains it.

  My learning curve
Posted by: bdcochran - 06-11-2018, 11:49 PM - Forum: Body Building & Physique Training - Replies (1)

60 years ago, I presented myself to a relative who was a cardiac surgeon and asked for some exercises, so he handed me the Canadian Army program.  A lot of research has gone on since that time.

Between Kaiser physical therapy/my own research, I ended up with over an hour of exercises a day that basically relied upon body weight, could be done outside on a mat.  Every day.  My research stumbled across an emergency room physician who had done weight lifting in medical school.  He said that a person didn't need to work out every day with weights.

Well, knowing that specific exercises don't deal will all parts of the body, I went into Kaiser therapy in January.  Received a simple exercise that took 5 months to restore my left arm.  Went in a few days ago again for an exercise to deal with the left leg.  I am old enough to be the therapist's father.  He said that I was stronger than he, and gave me 4 exercises to work into my routine.  He was/is right.  They were painful at first.

The bottom line is that you have to have an open mind and obtain professional advice from time to time.

Today, I started working out on a solid, portable, home made black iron chinning bar anchored by 4 50 pound bags of play sand.  How many chinups can I do?  NOne.  And I didn't expect to be able to do any.  That is a specific exercise of muscle groups that is not done daily in our society.  So, I start by simply hanging on the cross bar.  It will take time to build up the muscular strength to be able to do a simple chin up.  What is my goal?  To be able to do a series of overhand and underhand chinups very slowly - no twisting of the body/no swaying/no huffing and puffing. S   Some day, I hope to be able to do them with the legs at a 90 degrees to the torso.  That would be great!

  Single Stack Carry poll
Posted by: David - 06-11-2018, 03:16 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (10)

I've started this same poll on other boards as I want to get a good sampling and not have it biased based on the location of the poll.

Simply put in terms of reliability, function, price, capacity, carry etc., what would you choose to EDC out of the three available choices.  Also, some folks may prefer a choice that isn't listed, please participate in the Single Stack Carry Thread in this section with your choice and thoughts.

Thank you.

  Glock G33, Gen4, another winner.
Posted by: TN.Frank - 06-10-2018, 07:03 PM - Forum: Defense - Replies (3)

This little G33 is a real Pocket Size Power House and I think another winner from Glock in 357 Sig. Totally love rockin' the Sig ctg., gives me the power level I'm looking for in a handgun that's still controllable and easy to carry. Anyway, Enjoy.

  The pool is redone!
Posted by: Bob - 06-09-2018, 01:44 PM - Forum: Water - Replies (3)

15,000 of cool crisp clean clear water.  Mostly, it's for swimming.  But in a pinch - completely drinkable.

Also a new Grill, and refreshed the Propane.  So - Grill, Turkey Cooker, three cans of propane, and 15000 gals.

That doesn't count bottled and frozen !L's and Katadyn Filter and Lifestarws and Aquamira tabs.  Oh yeah - it rains fairly frequently!

So, water - Check!

  Knife making?

Making a knife from scratch, Rambo style, has been on my bucket list before forged in fire was on TV. Has anyone ever done it?
