  1. free video chat thing

    Who wants to test out a video chat thing (like Zoom) with me? If you want to try it, send me a PM, and I'll send you the code. :-/
  2. Which modern subcompact carry gun?

    Been around a long while, seen plenty of guns. A LOT has changed, and frankly, I haven't really paid full attention. My baselines are a Kahr PMK9 or a Keltec P3AT for size and weight. The first was more for quality and accuracy, and the latter more for total small&functional. Now, there are...
  3. Camping in White Mountain National Forest

    So, going camping Saturday and maybe Sunday night. I was thinking I'd bring a .22 pistol in case of skunks or coyotes. My neighbor, who owns the land says it is "bear season". I don't know if he means bears are around, or if it is hunting season, or maybe both. Might have to bring a .357, or...

  5. interesting cartridge, bottleneck parabellum

    Just saw this cartridge today (from an NES WTS ad), and it was the first I remember seeing it. I wonder how it compares with the .357 Sig. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/7.65%C3%9721mm_Parabellum
  6. "All (gun) politics is local"

    Just thinking out loud here. With all the election stuff coming up, there are a lot of people running for local offices. Eventually, some of these local offices "feed up" to state offices, and so on. It would be nice if maybe a group like NES could put together questions to ask potential...

  8. Sig Romeo versu Sig Romeo

    Which one on a 9mm carbine? On an AR .223? On a 10/22? Roughly $30 difference. Or, a 4x32 traditional scope on any of the above? SIG ROMEO ZERO REFLEX SIGHT, 6MOA Item #: XSIGSOR01600 Brand: SIG...

  10. Sounded like gunshots

    I swear I just heard like 15-25 gunshots. I heard a coyote earlier, but think that was another direction, and usually if someone is taking care of one they will do one or two shots. This was definitely not fireworks, and the rythym they happened in sounded more like gunshots, not fireworks being...
  11. Really, Hulu?

    So, the son decides to ask if we can ditch Netflix and try the Hulu trial. One buck less a month, and I hate Netflix, so why not? OK, I look up about 4 movies, and come up with nothing available. I think I looked up Full Metal Jacket, and it came back and suggested I try Platoon. OK, so I do...
  12. Which RI Beach Tomorrow?

    Which RI Beach Tomorrow? Just wondering what is open, how much, and if there are any to avoid (seaweed or jellyfish problems). Coming down 395 (or 146) from central Massachusetts. Thanks.
  13. Which 9mm carbine?

    Kel-Tec Sub2000 or Hi-Point 995? I know, Ruger is preferable. Could at least simplify by using Glock mags on both if KelTec. Have a HighPoint with 3 or 4 of their mags. KelTec is I think $350. Does Ruger also take Glock mags?

  15. Glock parts/build questions

    First of all, I hit enter, and the post went "live" before I was done composing it. The way links work, it is a pain to go back and edit, so sorry. Hit refresh every once in a while, as I'm cleaning it up. Looking to put together a G19 "Gen3" Glock clone. One consideration is that I might be...
  16. kids & depression (medication)

    My 15 year old boy has been having some bouts with depression. He has gone to a social worker, who has done a lot of stuff with family services and local schools. At first they thought he had ADD, and were going to treat that. Now, it seems he is depressed, and they/we want to treat that. The...
  17. Beach Sunday or Monday: When and where?

    Live in central MA, want to go to beach. I think I read that New Hampshire beaches are out. Do I head to Misquamicut, Newport, Narragansett? Plum Island? Gloucester? Maine (York, Ogunquit)? Horseneck? Cape? Are there any that open Monday that are not open Sunday? I really hate to drive...
  18. Worcester Church holding services

    Heard on the radio about a Worcester church, which got in trouble for holding services is planning more services tonight. They are doing this to assert their "freedom of religion", as protected by the US Constitution. They said people may attend from around other parts of the state, in support...

  20. Closings, Cancellations, State of Emergency, announcements due to Coronavirus?

    Heard of companies starting to ask employees to work from home, schools closing, cities and states having "State of Emergency". Please only post "Closings, Cancellations, State of Emergency, announcements", and try to not clog this all up with discussions. Make sure it is a real announcement or...
