  2. Reloading Packages on sale at Natchez

    Just got the email and thought I'd pass it along for anyone who is interested. Both kits are made by RCBS, and both are built around a single stage press. I haven't priced out the individual components, but it looks to be a decent deal. First one, just under $500, comes with 4 different dies...
  3. One Attorney's View Of The NY 'SAFE' Act

    I came across this in a side link from another thread. Basically, he believes that the SAFE Act is unconstitutional at both a state and Federal level, and presents his reasons for that opinion. LINK here, scroll down to page 23. I thought it was an interesting read, particularly his...
  4. AR15 Lower Transfer - MA to RI - Question

    I've been researching this on NES and I'm coming up with conflicting info. I have an AR lower, complete with FCG and an A2 buttstock. The lower has never been assembled as a rifle and has never been FA10'd in MA. I want to sell this to a RI resident. I know that at some point this will have to...
  5. Obama: "Gun-control advocates have to listen more" FUDDISM

    Full article here. So, has the Anointed One had a moment of common sense? Has he realized that the gun grabbers aren't having a conversation but just dictating their demands? Being a 'constitutional scholar' is he telling people he believes in the true intent of the 2nd Amendment? Nope...
  6. Can't reply/post in some threads...

    I usually go through the new members in the membership thread and post welcomes to the new folks. Today when I tried to do that there was no quick reply box. This appeared: You may not post new threads You may not post replies You may not post attachments You may not edit your posts BB...
  7. The Philippines, guns, and homicide rate...

    I just came across this article regarding the recent shooting in the Philippines. Interesting read, particularly about comparing gun ownership and homicide rates, the Philippines vs the United States. Cliff's notes version: I'm constantly hearing how the lack of guns in some countries...
  8. ShotSpotter: Recording Conversations?

    This was a front page story in my local liberal rag. Two pertinent quotes from the story: According to a spokesperson for ShotSpotter, their system can't record voices. Interesting, since the argument was apparently recorded prior to the gunshots being fired. I suppose that shouting on a...
  9. Old Folks And (long) Generator Question...

    I'll try to keep this as short as possible. Background: My MIL and her companion (let's call them Trish and Harry) are both in their early 80's. They are still pretty independent and live in Trish's home. Their basement has a water problem and they have a sump pump to keep things dry. It has to...
  10. Range Report And Another Reason To Reload...

    There have been some excellent threads on NES about the many good reasons to reload: economy, availability, tailoring the cartridge to the task, etc. For me, one of the biggest reasons is finding the magic load that a particular gun loves. A few weeks ago I bought a S&W1911 from an NES...
  11. SAF vs. Bloomberg...New Suit Filed

    (I checked the duplitron and didn't see this particular item. If I missed it, my apologies.) This alert came in today's email. The SAF gives permission to freely distribute, so here it is in it's entirety. Synopsis: NY city is charging an unreasonable fee for a license to possess a handgun in...
  12. SAF/Gura Score Win In CA

    Mods: I'm posting the entire email because SAF specifically asks that it be as widely distributed as possible. I checked and didn't see it posted elsewhere. [grin] I just received the following email alert from SAF: MA residents: please take note of the bolded language in the first...
  13. Possible GPAL Security Breach?

    I just received the following email from Gpal. I don't know quite what to make of it. Does anyone have any more info? BTW, this is exactly how it appeared in my email program.
  14. Midway Discount Promo Code

    If any of you are planning to order something from Midway, here's a chance to save $10 on an order of $50 or more. This came in an email from Auction Arms. Directions are: I'm guessing from items #5 & #6 that the promo won't work if you log in as a dealer/C&R holder. Also note its for...
  15. Storing Cast Bullets

    My supply of cast bullets for 9mm was almost depleted, so over the last few days I've been doing some casting, sizing, and lubing. I took advantage of the snowy weather today to finish up. I've been trying to find some good containers to hold the finished bullets. Over the years I've used wooden...
  16. Advertisements appearing in posts...

    A few days ago after the forum upgrade someone posted wanting to know why he was seeing Google banner ads onscreen. I wasn't seeing it, and I didn't give it a second thought. I just upgraded to Win 7 and I was setting up my browsers, so naturally I went to NES to see how it would look with my...
  17. A Hot Knife For Foam Cutting...

    ...is on sale at Harbor Freight. I just got this ad in email. Yes, I know it's cheap Chinese stuff from Harbor Freight, and I wouldn't recommend it for anyone who cuts foam or plastics on a regular basis, but it looks like it might serve well for someone who has an occasional need to cut foam...
  18. Veteran's Day: Helping Disabled Vets

    (Mods, I screwed up another post. [sad] I put this in the Members section, but it might be more appropriate in the General or other area. Please move as you see fit. Thank you.) I subscribe to an electronic newsletter called The Shooting Wire. In today's issue they had an article asking...
  19. Foul Out III vs. Mauser (long)

    (MODS: If this is placed in the wrong section, please move it. I didn't know whether it should go here or under "equipment." Thanks!) A couple of years ago I came across what I thought was a good deal on a Yugo M48A Mauser rifle. I put my C&R to use and ordered one; cost was about $100, IIRC...

    I just got an email from Opticsplanet. They're asking people to vote on what they consider the best products of the year. There are several different categories, you only have to vote in one. Very easy to do. After you vote, enter your email address. They'll be drawing prizes for gift cards...
