  1. 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 These are the same idiots that will bleat about how the second amendment should be repealed.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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. I'm not even against that. Fuck it, use whatever. I'll laugh at you, but at the end of the day it's your money and time. Especially with a culling. It's the explanation he gives that flies in the face of the fucking footage.
  6. Fuck that guy. Fuck that guy in particular. Just another fucking moron with more money than sense.
  7. The terrible movies and reviews thread

    I find it refreshing that a piece of live action Cinema has offered themselves as a sacrificial lamb against rampant weeabooism. By simply showing, not even to a great exaggerated extent, that anime eyes in real life look fucking weird as hell.
  8. The Best of Craigslist

    I don't know about anybody else, but I love cruising around Craigslist just to find ridiculous crap that people are selling, offering, doing, or ranting about. For those of you not familiar, Craigslist is a sort of online marketplace where you can sell your wares, your skills, or even yourself. Here's a thread dedicated to the Best/Worst of Craigslist. I'll start it off with something bizarre but safe for work. https://www.craigslist.org/about/best/phx/6100073306.html Free 18' Sailboat
  9. Terror Attacks and Active Shooter Events Thread

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

    https://cosprings.craigslist.org/cto/d/1965-chevrolet-impala/6404212464.html Color me interested.
  11. https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/firefield-mini-bladegunner-pistol-bayonet-ff77000-810119019721.do?sortby=ourPicks&refType= Huh. Actual quote from the site. Holy shit.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Education and throwing away your life.

    Putting faith in IQ testing standards is a sure fire way to weed out those of low IQ.
  16. Let's Talk Dark Souls

    First, everyone needs to be caught up on the story. Dark Souls 3 comes out in twenty days. Thus I have twenty days before my life is consumed once again by the flame. Dark Souls 1 PVP: Pivot Backstabs Dark Souls 2 PVP: spin spin spin R1 katana spam spin spin Dark souls 3 PVP: ????? Praise the sun, The Fluffy Tail, and may we never have another boss fight like The Bed of Chaos.
  17. 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.
  18. The Suppressive Effect of Small Arms

    Whenever @Sturgeon's posts are linked to Tony's forum, Tony:
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. General news thread

    For me, the only sport I truly follow is mountain biking. And the one interesting thing about the Olympics is that each country only has a few people they can send depending on standings. So you see countries represented that otherwise would never see a world cup race. And you see sometimes counties sending people from other cycling disciplines to race. Like this previous Olympic race when a famous road cyclist came out to battle for gold.
