  1. Lehighton fell through, high taxes & high HOA. Got a place in Carbondale that has a little history to it & seems like a nice quiet area I already contacted PGC and while they would allow a single shot AR, they said if a Game Warden sees what they believe to be is a semi then they might send it out to confirm it is not a semi & is legal to hunt with but I'd rather avoid that As far as Philly goes, its gotten worse since i was a kid so I'll definitely be carrying when I go there & same goes for Allentown There's also a gun shop in the "Miracle Mile" which I'll probably be going to anyways for smokes so I may check them out as well. I'll be working in stroudsburg by the mall so if you know any shops there I'm all ears Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  2. Ive got a wish list over at Delta Team Tactical, complete 300 BO upper pistolvlength 16" with bcg & ch for a lil under $300. Might not be the best quality but it's the best deal ive seen. I just need some cash to bring it home Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  3. I know this could be "off topic" material but it also applies specifically to PA, feel free to move if necessary I just got the green light on a house in carbondale & should be closing by the end of next month and right now I live in NYC & get cigs from a reservation and Im hoping there are some in NE PA or near Binghamton. Right now I pay 35 or so per carton & stock up when I go out there and going to 6 or 7 a pack is a hell of a jump What are some good ranges by Scranton? I have a brochure from Sunset but I think they're down by Wilkes-Barre. Im transferring to a shop in Stroudsburg so that could be a possibility as well or somewhere in between Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  4. Going to carbondale, low crime rate, lots of coal. A friend of mine that moved from nyc to Bethlehem said you have to be a resident for a year before you can get a concealed carry permit? Is this all across the state or is he mistaken? Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  5. We can have the entire legal population of the US vote for Trump & Hitler, I mean Hillary C U Next Tuesday can still win. Our vote doesn't count for much, it still gets determined by the Electoral College & whoever lined their pockets better Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  6. My mother fell for that, she's PC illiterate & naive. They screwed up her pc pretty good & charged her for it then had to deal with her CC company & have a real pro get rid of the crap that they put in there. Whenever they call me I ask questions they SHOULD know the answer to, like what model pc i have & then tell them to fork off Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  7. Lehigh fell through, carbondale is on the agenda, lackawanna county. Once i get there I'll check with them on it. I emailed the Game Commission about hunting with a single shot AR but it's Saturday so I doubt I'll hear back from them before Monday, hopefully Lackawanna is as easy as Berks Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  8. I used to use a tapered diamond stick, it dealt with most serrations I had on my blades, much better than some of the ones that come with the kits Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  9. With the current price tag, i think I'll have to pass, an anderson upper with bcg & ch is less than that. Granted it's a great looking upper and probably functions flawlessly but I can't justify it. It actually reminds me of an ar pattern paintball marker i had, a Tippmann something or other but it was a copy of the M4 with a faux mag, quad rail & a 4 or 6 position stock. For hunting or even the range I don't mind breaking position to charge, paintball & spring piston pellet rifles got me used to that. So long as Im not hunting though that gas tube is back in I may just get 2 uppers, one in 5.56 & 1 in 300 & keep a red dot on the 5.56 & a scope on the 300 Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  10. @GLShooter when you said gas portless, Im assuming (hopefully correctly) that you mean a barrel without the gas port drilled so it's a single shot. If my assumption is correct then my idea isn't far off. Ideally I would have a solid rod, probably tool steel with pin notch placed in the gas block effectively making it a single shot that can be converted back to semi with a gas tube & a roll pin punch Im leaning more towards the 300 after doing some reading on terminal ballistics, muzzle energy, barrier penetration and knockdown power especially on tougher targets like bear, boar & hardened baddies My cousin was into reloading especially 5.56, USMC with M16's, not sure which variant but Ive never reloaded in my life, kind of dangerous with a house full of smokers, myself included At some point I probably will get a bolt gun strictly for hunting but that will have to wait until Im in PA, prices are outrageous here and the FFL transfer & etc. Im not big on bolt guns, so my knowledge is less than limited but it might be my only way to hunt there if the single shot AR doesn't fly Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  11. Its not just DiDouchio (pardon my spelling) it's the mayors before him as well. Im not defending this turd nugget by any means but it's been an ongoing issue & with the amount of abandoned homes & buildings it could stop if they put some money into it but there's no return on free housing so why would they? Plus it helps the NYPD fill their quota for arresting people who really aren't committing real crimes. There are shelters but there's not enough of them & they're usually in shat hole neighborhoods. Instead of storage facilities every few blocks, use the same design maybe with some insulation & deal with the problem Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  12. If it was a dedicated hunting rifle then no it wouldn't be bad, sight in then hunt, but as a general all purpose rifle the price is a bit high. As of right now I can swing one upper so it would be a multi-purpose round, cheap enough to have fun at the range but accurate & deadly enough to reliably & humanely take game. In PA it would live as a semi until deer season then block the gas port & hunt provided that's acceptable. If its not then I'll have to get a bolt action Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  13. @captainbarred. I was just looking at delta team & they have a 300 upper for the same price as 223 but ammo becomes a concern. Besides AAC, what other variations can it handle? Ive heard it can handle Whisper but is that it? And there are varying reports that it's most reliable with pistol gas (shouldn't be a problem, just pointing it out) @ CityfiedHillbilly the 6.5 is an up & comer but higher cost than 223 or 300. On paper it looks like a good round but pricey & the 25-45 rounds I saw are $1 a round, for whitetail & maybe the odd bear, i think 300 comes out ahead of them. If I were an operator I'd go with 6.5 but i think it's too rich for my blood at the moment Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  14. My only gripe with 300 blk is availability & cost as you pointed out, plus it seems to prefer subsonic/suppressed and I don't plan on getting a suppressor even though they're legal in pa it still carries a tax stamp. I'll probably stick with a 5.56 and either get a bolt/lever rifle for large game or AR10 & disable the gas (pa doesn't currently allow hunting with semi's) As far as the current setup with disabled gas, it's to skirt the unSAFE Act but once I cross state lines into friendly territory it's going back to semi, I have no other reason to keep it handicapped besides an unconstitutional law I appreciate the input & hopefully I'll be putting rounds downrange pretty damn soon Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
  15. I know this has been discussed but when I search for 7.62 on tapatalk nothing comes so please don't kill me, just link me, here goes I have a lower & Im still trying to decide on an upper and the patriots here will sing the praises of 5.55 all day long & the commies will swear 7.62 is better than vodka but does anyone have both calibers in a AR platform? Ive seen & heard that the Comm round needs a few little tweaks like a heavier buffer or rifle buffer, heavier hammer spring, a longer or modified firing pin and the proper feed ramps but having done all that, will it serve as an all purpose rifle? I plan on hunting (mostly whitetail but maybe bear & bob cat if i bolt on a pair of larger nuts) and if need be a HD & SHTF. AR vs AK is like 9mm vs .40 cal but they're two different guns. With 5.56 vs 7.62 they'd be the same platform, same lower so would accuracy & range still be a concern with 7.62 or because it's a tighter tolerance rifle, a more refined design would it be on par with it's NATO rival? What I know is that the AR is more accurate than an AK but a SKS in 7.62 is fairly accurate as well. The 5.56 has better range, 700 yards vs 400-500 but less down range impact. Penetration is better with the 7.62 but that may be a problem with HD if there are friendlies around. 7.62 is a little more finicky especially the primers but it's cheaper as well. "Variety" is about the same; hollow point, penetrator, FMJ, soft point & Im sure theres others but Rip Out comes to mind also, its meant for extreme expansion & recommended for hog hunting with .223/5.56 & i can only imagine what it would do in .30 cal Speaking of hunting, Im moving to PA (currently in lib-central NY, cant hunt with a rifle south of Orange County) and PA does not currently allow semi's for hunting but I'll be hunting with a disabled gas system IF i get the go ahead from Fish & Game, if not, maybe a Mosin Nagant? They're cheap, powerful & accurate Ideally I would get both uppers since they share the same lower as opposed to the .308 which is an AR10 lower but at the moment Im trying to scrape together enough for 1 upper Sent from my LGLS991 using Tapatalk
