  1. American Rifle Company Nucleus - Finally to the Range!

    My interest in American Rifle Company started almost 4 years ago when Patriot Valley Arms launched the failed John Hancock rifle on the ARC 3 lug action. Had a deposit for over a year and a half and never saw a rifle. Got my deposit money back and found that American Rifle Company was now...
  2. Machine Guns as a legit investment?

    I wonder the practical thought or application of considering the purchase of a machine gun as a legit investment. Like all investments there would seem to be some serious risk based on laws that could be changed and a very small market interested in buying and bale to afford the purchase...
  3. Nighthawk Customs 1911 Build - 10mm or 45acp?

    Looking to dive into a semi custom 1911 from Nighthawk Customs. Pistol will be a single stack, 5” build, and I’m pretty sure a Shadow Hawk. Where I’m stuck is caliber. I am just getting into 10mm as I have always been intrigued in the caliber. A (4” M&P) I don’t have anything in 45acp I have...
  4. Karma: (Winner is PJ150) Take a friend shooting | 500 rounds of .22

    Karma: 400 rounds of Remington Thunderbolt .22LR and 100 Rounds of Aguila Colibri. (Super slow .22. Won’t cycle a semi) The worst part of any gun / ammo buying frenzy is nobody has “extra” to take a friend or teach that youngster how to shoot. So, take some of mine and take a friend or kid to...
  5. Anyone do digital modes on HF?

    After passing my General back in April I decided on a compact radio setup that I could take portable under battery power (not QRP, type small but not 7300 big) The inspiration is admittedly OH8STN, and his FT-891 rig. So, a few orders later and I now have a HF station that consists of a FT-891...
  6. HF Transceiver Power Consumption - What Am I Missing?

  9. Is A Full Size Pistol Even Necessary?

    I recently added a Sig P365 as my daily carry in place of a first generation S.A. XDS 9mm and a S.A. 911. Between the Sig P365 and P365XL and the 10,12,and 15 round capacity options it had me wondering why I need a full size pistol anymore? I have owned and shot 10s of thousands of rounds...

  16. Ok, I got a silly Baofeng and a Tech Exam Manual..

    Bought a UV-5R a while back, not sure why. Programmed it for all my local PD / Fire / Repeaters to listen in on what’s going on, and it now lives on all the time and makes trips with me in the truck back and forth to work. Got the Tech Exam study manual on Saturday from Amazon and thinking...

  20. Value "Precision" rifle, which one?

    It's been a while, and I've decided I want to jump into the precision rifle game. Given this is my first real attempt at this, I want to stay out of custom rifles.
