  1. Pick up or in person at the PD?

    My town is so small that, before COVID, the Chief stopped by and gave you your LTC personally. Last time, during COVID, he just mailed it.
  2. Linear Compensator - Great or Gadget?

    I have a couple of Kaw Valley’s linear comps and as @KMM696 says, they do nothing to mitigate recoil. What they do do is a pretty good job of directing the blast and sound down range, away from the shooter. I have one on my FNX 45 and it does a decent job of reducing the perceived nose and...
  3. AR in x39?

    I still have mine, but I hardly ever shoot it. I keep it more as a novelty and to add to my collection of ARs that are NOT in .223/5.56.
  4. What does blue label mean?

    Your significant other is much more understanding than mine. I’m only allowed Black; at almost $200 a bottle she’d never authorize Blue. And did you know that the Johnnie Walker labels are applied at an angle of 24 degrees?
  5. What does blue label mean?

    When referring to Colt ARs it has to do with their box label colors. See here: Colt AR-15 Box Colors The big advantage of a Blue label pre-ban colt is that it has the standard size take down pin holes, previous to that they had the large hole take down pins that can’t be used with current...
  6. Deals and steals

    If you haven’t pulled the trigger on the RMRcc 6.5 moa, Arms Unlimited has them on sale for $400 with $10 expedited shipping ($6 normal shipping) and no MA sales tax. cc07-c-3100002.htm
  7. 22 MAG suggestions ?

    If you’re considering rifles, I’ve actually had pretty good luck with my Bear Creek Arsenal 22 WMR side charging upper. Since they give you a dedicated buffer spring and buffer for it, I’ve got a lower dedicated to it (the dedicated spring will only work in a carbine length extension, it’s too...
  8. Supreme Court - NYSRPA v. Bruen - Megathread

    I grew up in Minneapolis and Target was the discount version of the big Dayton's department store in downtown Minneapolis (think of Filene’s and Filene’s Basement). It was where the “po’ folk” who couldn’t afford Dayton's went to shop. In 1969, Dayton’s merged with Hudson’s of Michigan to form...
  9. House passes 2022 assault weapons ban

    I’ve always thought that United States v. Miller said exactly that: I read this to say that the Second Amendment guarantees the right to keep and bear arms suitable for use in the militia, which now a days would mean any small arm that the military issues to its troops.
  10. Deals and steals

    And here is a comment direct from Home Depot: The four I have were all perfectly fine, but I did pick all four up directly at Home Depot. I didn’t have them shipped to my house (there is a N.H. Home Depot closer to me than the nearest one in MA and it saves me the MA sales tax) so they were...
  11. At what point do you take a defensive stance when someone approaches you in your car?

    Gen. Mattis also said: “Engage your brain before you engage your weapon.”
  12. Deals and steals

    Midway is having a one time offer on the SOG Piller, one of the best fixed blade field knives out there. If you don’t mind the hideous orange color (now you know why they're a one time offer), you can get it for $100 with free shipping, almost $90 less than the black version (and $115 less...
  13. Deals and steals

    Only on NES could a Deals and Steals thread morph into a discussion about cloth diapers. You’ve gotta love it.:)
  14. Not good for Angle Tree

    From the US Dept. of Energy official range design guide:
  15. NICS requiring address for delayed and denied

    This^^^. I fortunately have an extremely uncommon last name (everyone with the same last name here in the States is a close relative, and everyone back in Sicily with it can be traced back to a common ancestor). I have never been delayed and I don’t think it’s ever taken more than 15 minutes...
