  • Finger off the trigger? Nonsense….
    August 1, 2014 11:01 pm
  • @AGXIIK   I agree with everything you said, except for 1 point. Lazer sights. They work wonderfully, however there is a side effect, the lazer pinpoints your position. It`s a two way street. Back in the day, the m60 was equiped with tracers, every 4th round. The tracers drew a line straight back to the Gun. Some I knew removed the tracers, but with disentegrating link ammo, it was tough to do. another tatctic we used was a couple M14`s with selector swithes, were loaded with a tracer every 3rd round. It took some heat off the Gun. In my opinion, and it`s only an opinion, learn to shoot in the dark, without the lazer.

  • I'm a fan of  the finger-off -the -trigger until ready to shoot school. That said, I may not be fast but I am sudden and sudden works just fine On a mediocre day I can end up looking like the one legged monkey in the hammock trying to have sex with a saxaphone.  Since I'm pretty nutzo when it comes to gun safety my primary consideration is to win the fight without hurting myself or friendlies. But, and here is where it gets interesting, If you're in a fair fight, your tactics suck. It will get you dead every time The most important rule is to win the fight and live another day. YOU NEED  GO TO WAR WITH A LETHALITY AND VIOLENCE OF ACTION  THAT WOULD MAKE A SEAL TEAM MEMBER PROUD. Anything less than that will leave you dead or or baadly injury, out of the fight and your family in extreme danger. That sucks. I don't want to hear of any of my friends, family or people I train with ending up that way. Four rules of fire arms 1.  All guns are always loaded al...

  • Nice MaryB  I like the green tip 62 gr and some  of the heftier grained rounds.   5.56 ups the ante too The Reno Gun show had ammo prices down maybe 5-10% and plenty of everything available. I didn't find any weaps that turned me on The Saiga and VEPR have gone from $700 to $1,500 in the last 2 months.  That largest part of that increase, $900 to $1,500 was in the last week At that point a person can buy 3 Mossbergs and 3000 rounds of OO I did find an interesting chinese made mag fed 12 GA with the AK design. It's called the Fury II by Catamount and is available for $500 or less depending on the website.  Mags are $20 but only 5 rounds I heard about 10 round mags but have not been able to find them Saiga and VEPR mags cannot be used on this platform but youtube videos say this Saiga lookalike comes right of the box ready to blast away with rails, decent iron sights, bolt lockback with a button release Pretty nice blaster  I called my LGS to find me one or two...

  • I don`t even tell people when I have $200.00 fiat in my pocket, let alone where my stash is. And that brings up another well worn subject, what do you do with it. You people talked me out of my 3 safety deposit box`s. Now it`s rat holed near by. And I don`t like it. I`m not comfortable. I know the bank`s arent safe, nor a private vault outfit.   I guess that`s why from time to time, hoards are discovered.

  • Right Xizang that's definitely likely. Have your big local stash very well hidden and tell only a few trusted people to get it if something happens to you. If you've already told people about gold/silver maybe you should keep a small available stash in case of this scenario of you believe its likely.

  • One other thing, boys and girls:   Do NOT tell anyone you have any gold or silver.   Chances are when all hell breaks loose, the government will be demanding everyone turn in all their gold and silver (probably in exchange for some sort of government paper IOUs).   When that happens, government will be offering rewards for turning in people who have gold or silver, in addition to guns or ammo.   Don't be running off at the mouth about your gold, silver, guns, ammo, food or medicine you have stockpiled.   Only trust the ONE person who will get your stuff when you die.

  • Interesting video.  Similar to the other one's I've watched over the last 3 years.   Looks like my idea of 90% and SAE's only is the way to go.    It does have me thinking about some 10oz bars....wait, no.   And, this is all nice - but if the Ag market freaks out there's other things to worry about.  Glad I have a place to grow food and stay warm and dry.

  • I dunno.....  Look at ALL the sites selling the stuff and there's PLENTY to be had.   Worrying about the doom of some article is silly.  Get the stuff now, as you can, and just keep going.   IF things do go nuts I have a hunch it'll be so fast this time that it won't matter what order you put in where - they'll be cancelled and that will be that.

  • The one CRITICAL thing is to make damned certain that the party you're shooting at is not your spouse, kid or anyone else who has a right to be there.   That cleared in your brain, fire away!   Have no mercy and take no prisoners.  Prisoners will just sue you later.

  • Move away from the standard AR-15 ball rounds and move into soft point or ballistic tip and bump it to 60-70 grains. Penetration improves and tip makes expansion pretty drastic. Vmax rounds literally explode and the fragments will create a 5 inch diameter wound channel

  • Muzzle flash will temporarily take your night vision, but, you have memorized your surroundings, and a good first shot may preclude the nesessity of a second. Should a second shot be nessessary, sound and memory will sufice.  In your own home, you hold the high ground. Use our knowledge to your benifit. Once the shooting starts, aggressiveness on your part, will carry you through. If they are moaning, shoot them again. Merciless, pityless defense wins battles.

  • Keeping the finger off the trigger is the proper procedure at gun ranges.   Keep the finger off the trigger until the range is cleared and your target acquired.   In a life and death, survival, self-defense situation, that is just bullshit that will slow you down and make you dead. Anyone's night vision is adversly affected by bright light - like muzzle flash from your gun or the bad guy's.  So all the more reason to be the first to fire.  Your night vision will suck after the first shot.

  • Much of what you say, is a result of the liberal "We will take care of you" propaganda. Every American IS RESPONSIBLE for thier own defense. In my area, we have Stand Your Ground law is effect.   Are most Americans capable of protecting themselves ?  I think so. put a person under severe pressure, life or death pressure, and they will respond.   There is nothing like a fire fight to get your attention. You become soo focused, that even small to moderate injuries go unnoticed. You see better, hear better. Night vision is becoming a lost art. Modern technology has almost replaced it. As long as the batteries last. I practice night vision every night. To see something in the dark, don`t stare right at it, look a little to the side. A firefight in your home will be a very brief affair.   If I could add one more point, If this occures, and pray to God it dosen`t, and the intruder leaves, do not pursue. You may then become a victim of the police, or nei...
