    Saiga 12 ban

    http://forum.saiga-12.com/index.php?/topic...s/page__st__150 Just a heads up to those who own or plan to own a Saiga 12, or just anyone tired of having our rights stripped away from us...the ATF is currently not approving the importation of Russian made shotguns under the pretense that they will be reclassified as "Destructive Devices" not for "Sporting Purposes." I've done enough research to see that this is for real but would like to know if anyone has any more insight into the process or status of this imminent ban. It looks like we're in the 11th hour on this one...

    Powder Coating Question

    I'm planning on getting Cerakote on all my guns, I've heard nothing but exceptional things like above. I had my 1911 done in Duracoat because it was the only one i could get locally. It looks greats but after a few cleans and getting a little heavy handed on the powder solvent, I'm noticing peeling around the hammer well and rear sight. Go to the Cerakote web sight and they provide a lot of lab tests showing Cerakote's durability. Pricing is about the same, especially with Amelon's discount for forum members. Unless you intend to hang your piece up on a wall for show it's going to be abused and from my own experience Duracoat won't hold up over time.

    WARNING!!!: To all Guinness drinkers

    I'm not the biggest fan of Guiness. Not the taste, per se, but the texture. I know it's a dark 'heavy' beer but I've always found it too watery for the flavor (I'm sure that a weird thing to say). If you say it's thicker/creamier in Ireland I'll just have to go and try it myself! I have to agree that it's best to go to the source. I'm a Yuengling lager drinker and you go to their brewery in PA and it's the best you've had! Not to mention the history of that place, it's almost identical to when it started. Oldest brewery in America and still going strong for a reason! Localized production, family owned, not a commercial sell-out like Bud of Miller!

    Army Sets Sights on New Rifle

    Of course, petition vendors for all materials and production costs and go with the lowest bidder.

    Army's new fitness tests add taste of battlefield

    I'm currently planning to join the Army and I'm pretty excited to potentially take part in this developmental program! I can see the practical application of this new criteria but I've got my own questions about how they'll be graded. Particulary, the obstacles that require the rifle to be aimed on the move...how do you know the individual is actually aiming? Obviously there's a trade off between speed and accuracy, so how do they know the recruit is on target at a reasonable pace or just hauling arse while 'spraying and praying.' Unless someone beats me to it I'll try to get back on here and let you know how the course goes!

    Irish joke

    Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual, when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door. "Brenda, may I come in?" he asks. "I've somethin' to tell ya". " Of course you can come in, you're always welcome, Tim. But where's my husband?" " That's what I'm here to be telling ya, Brenda." There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery..." " Oh, God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me." " I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead and gone. I'm sorry. Finally, she looked up at Tim. "How did it happen, Tim?" " It was terrible, Brenda. He fell into a vat of Guinness Stout and drowned." " Oh my dear Jesus! But you must tell me truth, Tim. Did he at least go quickly?" "Well, Brenda... no. In fact, he got out three times to pee."

    Ammo question

    I can't say anything about WOLF ammo other than what I've heard and that's already been said. Instead, I'd offer a [possibly] less controversial brand of inexpensive ammo, 55gr. PMC. I bought an ammo box with 500 rounds for a little over $100 and then a case of $1000 for about $200. It was very clean brass and have not had a single jam or the need to clean more than a quick blast of powder cutter in the upper and barrel, snake, and wipe with a rag. Just something to consider!

    affordable red dots

    I can vouch for the Bushnell as well, I've got on mounted on a Saiga 12ga and have shot a couple hundred rounds through it, from bird shot to slugs, and it's held zero. The only thing that's kind of dumb about it is that it has 11 brightness settings, but I only use it on '11' since everything less seems to wash out on a sunny day.

    first AR

    Hey everyone, I bought my first AR about a year ago, Daniel Defense M4. I've been taking it to an indoor range (lame) pretty regularly and love this rifle! My only discrepency is with the weight, it's got the DD 12" quad rail which looks bada$$ but I've come to realize I like simplicity and functionality rather than accessorizing. So my question is, is it 'sacreligious' to take off (possibly sell) the quad rail and install a magpul CAR forearm? Also, what kind of mods can I make to sweeten this thing up? It's already a deadshot and I know, if it ain't broke-don't fix it, but just curious what options/ideas are out there. Thanks

    Funny VID's

    Our nation's finest. I don't understand why the rest of world thinks we're idiots. Maybe because I, like most people who see this, laughed my arse off!

    Funny VID's

    Ok, I'll admit I did the same thing but mine was much more glorious! I hadn't been riding in a few years but I decided with my new job to buy a new bike. Went to the dealer (yes I wiped out on a dealer's bike) took out a demo Triumph America (ironic I know) and proceeded to cruise around on unknown streets, on an unfamiliar bike, years out of practice. Riding down a straight rode, I guess the throttle got away from me and came to a sharp left turn and the bike was too heavy to make it (plus I'm an idiot). Slid off the road, across a gravel shoulder and rolled into a 5ft deep run off ditch! After that adrenaline/retard strength got me to lift the inverted bike upright and ride it back to the dealer! Lights busted, handle bar bent, tank beat to hell, I'm pretty sure some parts stayed in the ditch. Got out with only a few scrapes since I had a full helmet on. Didn't pay a dime for that one (their insurance covered it) but I still bought a bike from them...accident free since! (knock on wood)

    Welcome To AR15Armory.com

    Hi everyone, new to the forum, I've been increasingly active with firearms the past two years. Started with a Mil-Spec 1911 I bought from a friend of a friend and now I've got a Kimber 1911 TLE/RL II, Ruger Vequero .357, Daniel Defense DDM4, and a Saiga 12ga. The Saiga is my current project spiraling out of control but I'm having fun and learning a lot. Looking forward to discussing this and other potential builds as the days go on and would be grateful for any words of wisdom and will happily offer my own 2-cents when I can for anyone else!
