    Leather Holster Owie.........

    Apples to apples oranges to oranges . The subject keeps going back to 1911s , I don't remember seeing a 1911 without a manual safety or two . If you want to have a discussion about yay or nay on safeties it should be on the same gun . Would a safety on x yor z make it less prone to ND/ AD if you get into a scuffle and the trigger is pressed by a foreign object or the perp gets his toe in the trigger guard? Is that something you are concerned with? What about the seat belt pressing the trigger ? Of course a good holster would fix that . What does it hurt for a gun to have a safety? Is there any research to show disengaging a safety makes gun x or y slower ? I do know that I have absolutely no problem with the de cocker on the Berretta using my strong hand thumb but my wife does . My wife has no problem with the tiny safety on the S&W shield but I do . If you choose a gun with a safety it should be one everyone likely to shoot it can easily use and it should be used . If you choose one without a safety and train with it you may actually be more careful because you are aware if you accidentally press the trigger there is no safety to help you. My vehicle has a parking brake but if I turn the wheels into the curb and be sure it's in park and on level ground I don't need to set the parking brake , right . Tell my wife that. Bottom line is choose the gun that fits your needs and works for you , if you want to use the parking brake do so if not don't . Don't tell someone it's stupid to use the parking brake just because you don't need one ,your favorite car comes without one , or you can't remember to release it. Some of you are wondering why "that idiot is talking about parking brakes" . I'm talking about people and how some of us think our way is the only way and if someone doesn't do things the way we do they are ignorant . I'm glad major gun companies realize we all have different opinions and offer different options . Now that said what do y'all think about the lack of penetration or damage to the hip . Should he change to Safety Slugs or hard Ball or just keep loading what he has been ? Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    replacing cotter pin

    If you look real close you will see it is hitting the side of the farthest side hole , just take something small and pointed and push the end of the pin over and it will go in . That is what keeps it tight ,spring tension. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    Some people use an extra firing pin I use a nut picker to close the end up and it slides in easy every time. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    Is there really that big of a difference?

    Joel74 is 100% right . You can spend a lot and get little or a little and get plenty or crap . Wading through the suggestions can get tricky so here is my advice on the subject . Read between the lines , if the person giving the advice says the cheapest is always the bestest ignore the advice but on the other hand if they say if it isn't military tested and tough it ain't squat ignore them too unless you see jumping out the back of planes or bouncing around in a Humvee in your future . Back in the day I worked at a Cadillac olds dealership ,a lot of parts were the exact same part and had same casting number for both but if they had a Cadillac sticker they cost 50% more . I purchased a blower motor for a customer one day for around $30 a few months later I ordered one for a different car and it was $90+ exact part exact npz casting no. but one was for a Mazda the other a Geo . I sent it back and put the $30 one in . What has this got to do with ARs nothing it has to do with people ,there are people out there who think the $90 part had to be better because after all it was 3 times as high and had a fancy sticker . When you want to know about something state the intended purpose, as hunting , defense ,mag dumps or accuracy at range . Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    I have owned several different hand guards and have found I like the Matrix $54 on sale at Joe Bob's outfitters best . They are Ligh weight ,come in key or mlok . I installed mag pull minie rail for light and quick disconnect sling mount. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    So, Who Is At The Bench Today?

    I still have a couple of boxes of the Speer plastic bullets and also cases with primer pocket enlarged for wax bullets . Easiest round to load ever. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    "Solo 300 Pistol"

    If Mo. didn't recognize AR pistols as legitimate for alternative season I would probably get one in 6.8 or maybe the new .350 from Winchester . Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    Missing Detent Spring and Pin

    The 1/4" multiple hole clevis pin at the local hardware is perfect tool for less than a dollar . Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    I'm guilty of owning but not wearing my MAGA hat . I never wear any hat/ cap except a Boony hat when I'm out in the woods . I will be wearing MAGA tee shirts soon as it warms up . I agree with others here,there is a time when we have to realize we ain't young bucks anymore . Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    I’m gonna stop for a bit

    I tried to get a look on the site but couldn't , the JAL secondary holes are about 45° angle from bore and work good . For a light weight build a aluminum one would be great if it works and lower cost would be a plus . Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    I can not speak for this comp as far as noise but it does look good . I have JAL linear comps from AR performance on all my 6.8s and on 1 on a 5.56 ,the noise down range is the same but they definitely direct the blast away from the shooter . The JAL is made of steel and looks about the same size. What does the muzzle end look like on the KAK ? Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    I said I would never build another upper until someone came out with a 44 maximum but I have watched the video on the new 350 Winchester several times , ok maybe just one more then I'm done. Sent from my Moto E (4) using Tapatalk

    12,000 + Rush the Border Scenario

    What did the couple of kids who died shortly after getting here die from? How many died from illness on the other side waiting or on the way up of infectious diseases ? It's a national emergency for health reasons if nothing else . I don't want to see anything happen to kids but as soon as an adult brigs a child here illegally they should be arrested for endangering a child . As for all those people saying you can't take someone's kid away just because they broke the law maybe they need to go talk to all the Americans who are in jail, they don't get to be with their kids so why should the illegal aliens .
