  1. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

    Easily the most plausible explaination so far, sadly enough.
  2. The Best of Craigslist

    https://cosprings.craigslist.org/cto/d/1965-chevrolet-impala/6404212464.html Color me interested.

  4. General cars and vehicles thread.

    Apparently so. Plus, the company won't take a return. They'll send me another one, but that's it. So now I've got a MAF sensor that doesn't work worth a damn. Oh well.
  5. General cars and vehicles thread.

    Put a new EGR valve on the truck. Turns out I've got a bolt that wont thread into the engine to hold the EGR on. I got it in, put the other bolt on, unplugged it, made sure it sealed decently, and left it. I'll plug it up when I need emissions testing. But on an even sadder note, I stuck a new MAF sensor in my truck. 280k miles, figured it was time to replace. New MAF sensor probably sucked 80 horse power out of the truck, and left 3/4ths the throttle useless. Old MAF sensor went back in, and now I'm contacting A1 Auto Parts to get a refund.
  6. Education and throwing away your life.

    In this new Utopian society, the Right People of Tolerable Intelligence can arm themselves with Scout Rifles against ghastly rebellion, a weapon far too sophisticated for the common low-person mongrel to comprehend.
  7. Education and throwing away your life.

    Putting faith in IQ testing standards is a sure fire way to weed out those of low IQ.
  8. If the main topic is reload speed,a box magazine is faster than a tube. I can dual load a shotgun from a chest rig under a timer, and it takes practice. I'd still rather just use mags. And if you're someone with smaller hands, dual loading may not be possible. So then you're back to one at a time, which sucks. As far as the "bull of carrying extra magazines into the field" argument, I would rather have all my rounds contained and ready than loose in a bag or pocket.
  9. The Suppressive Effect of Small Arms

    Whenever @Sturgeon's posts are linked to Tony's forum, Tony:
  10. Furthermore, arguing against magazines is sooo 80 years ago. The same arguments are roughly applied to going from a bolt action to a detachable magazine fed rifle. As far as balance is concerned, I know that with longer tubes your balance changes as you unload the gun, so your swing is affected. That's less of an issue with this detachable magazine version.
  11. Yes really. I've competed with and against both. Magazine fed is faster, unless you're quad loading or have special speed sticks. Magazines are better than tubes for safety, unloading the gun, etc. Yes, I wish Remington would get their QC back to spec. That would be fantastic, but I'm excite to see something new from the 870.
  12. I'd like to see the stress tests with the Remingtons. This is a known issue. Hopefully, they thought about it. I wonder what spring tension they used. And a bitch to load quickly.
  13. It only took until 2017 for companies to realize that tubes on shotguns suck. I wonder what took them so long. Perhaps because the Knoxx kits sullied the reputation of magazine fed pump action shotguns? Regardless, it looks like Remington did this as cheaply as possible from a production standpoint. I wonder if there's any changes that's been made to the receiver. The barrel, trigger, stock, etc are all the same as a standard 870. It's the right direction to head, at least. Now give us the semi-auto version.
  14. General news thread

    Yeah, Sagan raced MTB for a bit an then went to road. Can't blame him. The money is in Road. Sad to see him get a flat in Rio. It would have been interesting to see him fight for position with the others. I believe Fontana used to be Sagan's team mate, actually. Trying to watch the olympics for the interesting sports here in the states is atrociously difficult. Usually all you get to see is tennis, swimming, and gymnastics. And that's IF you have a subscription to NBC. The mountain bike commentary SUCKED ASS too. I eventually muted it (after pirating the race) and did my own commentary. I was more knowledge AND witty.
