Included are 15 factory 20-round magazines (12 of which are still in the box), a PMM modified Magpul grip, several sections of Magpul rail covering and the Geissele Super Scar trigger. All of the original paperwork, the OEM grip, the factory trigger and the FN cardboard box are included. I have installed a Silencerco (I think) 3-prong flash

  4. I picked this rifle up in a local estate sale at the start of the pandemic and have decided to let it go to another good home. It has not been fired since being in my possession. It was in VERY good condition when I received it and I've done some initial/basic cleaning on it and that's it. May have a few extremely minor scratches or handling marks but nothing worth truly noting. Fantastic bore/barrel! The darker wood on this looks fantastic! No trades. Face to face in the middle TN area. Must have a valid TN driver's license with photo or valid TN Handgun Carry Permit and be a TN reside

  5. BE WARNED: SCAMMERS ARE ACTIVELY WORKING AGAINST THE GUN COMMUNITY ON TGO AND OTHER INTERNET FORUMS IN THE BUY/SELL/TRADE AREAS. Folks, lately we have seen a significant uptick in scam attempts that go like this: You post an ad for an item for sale or wanted. A scammer contacts you about the item you are selling or looking for and offers to put you in contact with a friend or relative in Texas or some other state. Throughout the whole thing, your Spidey Sense is tingling and telling you it seems suspicious... because it is! We stro

  9. Im a former drinker. Quit 10 or so years ago after I realized I liked it a tad too much, lol. But I think it should be the same as for driving. I see nothing wrong with having a drink with dinner or something, as long as you are ok to drive. Same should apply here.

  10. Look at stats for defensive firearms use by armed citizens. Also, you might read the recently released "Real Shootouts of the LAPD -- Off Duty Incidents, Volume 1" by Claude Werner. This studies every off-duty shooting (burglary, assault, etc.) by LAPD officers since 2005, so it should be similar to what average citizens experience. One similarity: Firing of more than two shots is extremely rare. That said, it doesn't mean that the need for more than two shots never happens, and you don't want to be the statistical outlier if you're the person involved in a defensive situation wh

  11. I feel for ya @gregintenn! "Youth is wasted on the young"... <sigh> As I've posted before, we use raised beds here in suburbia. We added a bit more this year and we now have the equivalent of six 4x8 ft and one 4x4 ft beds plus a 2x8 ft bed. We've already planted Sugar Snaps in one bed and they're growing well. We have Swiss Shard, salad greens, and Zucchini coming up in another. Our onion sets are doing well, as are our Yukon Gold potatoes. My okra seeds have broken ground in the 2x8 bed... probably too early, but I have plenty of seeds. We had planted some bush type

  13. And bucking the trend as usual: I've always thought six in a revolver is plenty, and revolvers are darned near jamb-proof. And I often carry a .45ACP with 7. I've always thought that THE perfect self-defense weapon is a pump-action 12g. Anyone who hears that distinctive ker-chunk and keeps on coming deserves what will happen next. Hard to conceal, though.....

  18. Im ok with whatever ya are comfortable shooting; ya just have ta know how to shoot n have the mindset to shoot... I carry a 238 and/or 938 because they are thin n easy to carry when im in relatively safe territory.. Out on " the frontier " the big pistolas ride along. I like the at least two gun idea:... " The quickest reload is a second pistola "... leroy...

  24. Enough for what? Purpose matters, and circumstances do too. Trip to the grocery store in the 'burbs? Yeah, probably enough. But when it's time to demo the deck behind your house, you reach for the crowbar and 10 lbs. sledge - not the framing hammer.

  26. I think a 12 gauge is great also, but I don't want to give away my position. Pumping a shotgun is good for throwing cold water on guys that want an excuse for discontinuing their bravado, but for someone that means you harm it's not a good idea.

  28. The disturbing trend in violent crime encounters is multiple bad guys and girls. Not likely to have time to reload a revolver and figure a minimum of 2 seconds for a pistol, if you're good, practice continuously and not entangled / fending off. And a Tom Givens-ism: a high capacity pistol is not so you can shoot more, it is so you have to reload less. Depending on environment and attire, I will carry a single stack (and a back up) but prefer a full size or compact equivalent for EDC (with a back up) In a society where criminals are emboldened due to the political landscape

  29. Before obtaining my HCP I had to get a court record from Houston showing a dismissed charge. One denial was from someone with same name. Another denial apparently due to an address misprint on a drivers license. I had two denials on out of state purchases with no explanation given once purchase was approved. After being issued a UPIN, I have not had another purchase denial.

  30. I’m sold on synthetic oil. I believe it gets you slightly better gas mileage, and the extended oil change intervals offsets the increase in cost.

  31. Well this is my experience: I switched over to full synthetic Mobil 1 years ago in my diesel truck, my daily car and my wifes mini van. I also went from oil changes at 4-5K miles to oil changes at 10K+ miles, any less from my research you are throwing money away, full synthetics are designed to go longer, maybe 20K miles. In addition to proven properties of full synthetic over conventional oil, I have documented that all my vehicles get an average of 2-3 mpg fuel improvement of using full synthetics over conventional. If I hadn't proved it to myself multiple times, then I would not have me

  32. I tried eating gar last year and now it's the main fish I try to catch. The skin is hard as plastic and you need tin-snips to cut it open. After you get it open there are 2 long boneless loins on each side of the back. No need to gut it or skin it. The meat is odorless and firm like chicken. It's like alligator and I love it !!! This Gar was 3 feet long and both loins were around 15 inches long and nice and thick.

  34. The families of the victims of the "DC snipers" sued and won against Bushmaster. The company was sold to Freedom Group and closed post Sandyhook. Bushmaster was later reponed in Ilion, NY but with different staff. The previous staff repoened as Windham Arms. It is said the Windham Bushmaster guns are of higher quality than the Ilion, NY ones. The Windham ones are also from an era when there was only Colt, Bushmaster, DPMS, Olympic making civilian AR15s at true government service specs and not cheap before everyone and thier brother started knocking out AR15's. I have both, my Windham is notica

  35. .25 ACP might not be any more than .22 lr but it’s centerfire. Rimfire is notoriously unreliable, centerfire not so much. A good .22 pistol/ammo combination can be devastating with the proper ammo. That caliber has quite a history, statistics prove it. Imagine 400 grs (or 290 grs for this round) of projectiles hitting a target in 10 different places in the same amount of time it takes to fire a couple of any other caliber.

  37. @ Chucktshoes - Very cool setup. I used to listen to music mostly on my commute to/from work. These days I'm home almost all the time and use a cheap set of cordless MPOW headphones that Bluetooth to my phone. Since my phone is on the house wifi I don't have to worry about data usage, etc. Anybody ever listen to Dave Gross? His genre of music is officially known as "5:00 on Friday Music."

  38. As a former LEO and martial artist who has used neck restraints countless times, I agree with the verdict. Once the suspect is cuffed and prone you release the restraint - period. With Chauvin's experience, he knows this. I watched the video screaming at Chauvin to get off his neck. He's getting what he deserves, IMHO. I don't think that the officers behind him are responsible, but the one who could see Floyd's face and clearly hear his pleas should be charged as he was indifferent to the situation.
