  1. Weapons Promotional Videos

    Something called the Glock 19-X. It was a lame promo video for a G17/G19 Frame/Slide combo.
  2. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    I love that channel. I really, REALLY hope that Shadows Die Twice is a new IP. I don't care if it's a mix of Bloodborne and DS's aesthetic, just make it something new. I don't want BB2. Maybe by the time it comes out, I'll have a new computer built. I've been having it far too easy on my high-level PVP build. At those levels, people just straight suck ass at PVP. Christmas Noobs are wonderful food.
  3. Weapons Promotional Videos

    Such wow.
  4. General news thread

    Just heard from a friend in town that they caught a guy in a Houston hotel with a bunch of guns, ala Vegas shooting.
  5. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    Bloodborne is so fucking good. I hate that it's a PS4 exclusive.
  6. The Best of Craigslist

    https://pueblo.craigslist.org/cto/d/1974-chevy-nova/6416230842.html Found a Nova with a very interesting shadow of a poor attempt at a confederate battle flag.
  7. No. "Upgrades" do not increase the value of your used product on the person-to-person marketplace. This is true for cars, bikes, etc. I see it all the time. "I put a dropper post and new tires on my mountain bike! That means it's worth another $400!" No, because your bike is not worth MSRP anymore. Why should the parts put into it be worth MSRP? Same goes for cars. People that want $2000 more for a truck with a "custom lift kit"? Screw off with that BS. Half the time I'll be fixing someone's "upgrade" anyway. But sadly, people don't seem to realize this. Someone else's work depreciates just as much as the physical parts added. Just because he paid some guy with a TIG welder $100/hr doesn't mean that cost gets transferred to the buyer of said "custom" piece.
  8. General news thread

    Shooting in California. Two dead, including shooter. Self inflicted. http://beta.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-long-beach-shooting-20171229-story.html

  10. Also, this gun from Mossberg has been holding my attention for far too long. https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/97216/Firearms/Shotguns/Mossberg/Mossberg+MVP+THR+18.5THB+308+GRN+10RD Mossberg MVP, 7.62NATO, accepts AR-10 magazines, has iron sights, and 18.5" barrel.
  11. The Aglockalypse

    Everyone think's their the shit until you put them on a shot timer. It is the great humbler.
  12. There's a 1917 Enfield at a pawn shop in a butchered sporter stock. $400. It's tempting to buy it and try to put it in a standard stock again. http://www.e-sarcoinc.com/p14stockwithhandguardsetoriginal.aspx
  13. Education and throwing away your life.

    I taught the ACT and SAT For 3 years to high schoolers. I can speak at length of how the tests have changed. But, the one unifying arc? If you want your kid to do well on these tests, they had better have a book in their hand as soon as they learn to read. Kids that enjoy reading and do it for fun (in any manner, fiction, nonfiction, etc) are destined for very high scores on these tests. One of the first questions I would ask a student is if they enjoyed reading. Those who would say "Yeah, I like some things" were destined for high scores. The sky was the limit. Those who shrugged their shoulders and wouldn't pick up a book unless threatened were destined for the 70 percentile at the most. I watched this happen again and again. If a parent wants their kid, who doesn't like to read, to get above, say, a 28 on the ACT (out of 36), I would need a magic wand and a pact with Satan.
  14. Education and throwing away your life.

    Not found in this thread, for the most part.
  15. Your Gun Porn Thread

    This is my Finnish Mosin, an M39. The rifling is very sharp, and it prints beautiful groups. It's been in Texas at my parent's place for a few years. My life has been hectic to say the least, but now that I'm more settled I was going to take it back to Colorado. Perhaps I could find a buyer for it, since I want a bolt gun in .308. As soon as I pulled it out of the safe, the idea wavered greatly. I took it to the pasture and slammed steel with it for a few magazines. I can't let go of this thing. It's too damned nice. It makes my M44 look like a brutish hunk of shit-steel and crap-wood. This is such a great bolt action. All matching serial numbers, trigger is light and smooth, bolt slides like it's been buttered. I'll pick up some decent 7.62x54R ammo for it when I get back to Colorado.
  16. The Sovereign Citizen Movement

    Some of the Bundy's might be crazy. But at the core of this story, I still think the feds handled it like shit. Then again, I grew up two hours from Waco...
  17. General news thread

    Sturgeon is just testy because he wishes that he could subjugate a certain gunsmith. Under our glorious leader's perfect governing system, he would make sure anyone who does wrong by him sees the rack.
  18. General news thread

    Net neutrality is no more. The law has been nullified. Leftists and libs across my feed are frothing and gnashing teeth, calling for uprising, for an end to the oligarchy. For this atrocity against mankind's unalienable rights to be met with a force. And, as part of the pro 2A crowd... empathy is kind of beyond me. These are the same idiots that will bleat about how the second amendment should be repealed. The same types that say, "It only applies to muskets!" What about the 1st amendment? That only apply to printing presses? "It's not the same!" And then you expect me to be upset with you over this. You fear the government? Welcome to the fucking club. No, I don't think it's a good thing. I don't like the FCC. They are shitters. But some people can really be choosy about the rights they try to protect.
  19. The original laws were meant to stop spotlighters. Deer do this very odd thing, where they walk toward bright lights. I've witnessed it and even done it a few times. Easy to stick a light out the truck, hit eye shine, they walk to you, and you shoot them with a shotgun.
  20. 50 yards? You give him that much? See, my dad has got them all beat. He used to park his truck on a west Texas fenceline and shoot deer out of the window of his truck.
  21. As someone who's shot a rabbit with a .308 (FN FAL, SA surplus ammo, 100 yards, and yes I ate it), I know just what my mileage is.
