  1. Yep, and it’s probably going to cost that one his wiping hand.

    New Gun!

    Those are an absolute joy to shoot. Hope you have lots of ammo!
  3. I don't know of anyone my self but make sure you find someone that knows what they're doing. Cracked receivers are not unknown when removing the barrel from an M1917. CMP does provide that service if you are a customer and want to send it off.
  4. You brought up examples of vaxed people who caught the covid. Just wondering what the point was.
  5. And they aren’t taking up desperately needed hospital beds are they?
  6. Have you politely discussed the issue with your rude neighbor?
  7. @xsubsailorknows how to handle thread drift.
  8. It's a trip. You could spend an hour in there just trying to figure out what everything is. If nothing else, it's the best place to get Sriracha sauce. They sell great big things of it way cheaper than anywhere else.
  9. I figured you might be acquainted with that wonderfully bizarre grocery. They might have some new fresh fish tomorrow.
  10. Didn’t know that lot was prone to flooding. If he was looking for a storm drain, he’s still a fool .
  11. What’s that fool doing? Trying to get a Sonic?
  12. They might have to cancel Knoxville if this rain keeps up.
  13. I have one. NEF Pardner Pump. Bought it brand new from Gander Mountain 10 years ago. Very nice walnut stock and is as good as any 870 made since.
  14. Imported ammo has not been banned. Just the stuff from Russia.
  15. Sorry to hear that E. Hope he’s not a true positive and if so, he gets through it ok.
  16. I will. Underneath the Fox sensationalism there is the reality that insurance companies cannot bear the expense of covid treatment forever. The best medical care in the world () comes at a cost and that cost is astronomical. And you still have a good chance of dying.
  17. Reckon it might be Loretta Lynn? Hurricane Mills is just down the road from Waverly.
  18. If y’all would start driving electric cars and stop farting this wouldn’t happen any more.
  19. So, who makes Mead with all their honey?
  20. And I suck at gambling. I’ve been reevaluating my initial thought of trying to pop one in the head so close to the house.
  21. Here is SGAMMO’s opinion from today’s email blast. Take it as you will. “There has been a lot of people asking me about the sanctions on Russian ammo imports put in place by the US state department this past week and what it means for the future of ammunition supplies. There will be more clarity in several weeks when we can see the publication of a Federal Register notice expected on September 7, 2021. The state department announcement can be seen at this page - https://www.state.gov/fact-sheet-united-states-imposes-additional-costs-on-russia-for-the-poisoning-of-aleksey-navalny/ My Russian Ammo Sanction Opinion - First, I hope you don't 'shoot the messenger' and I'd like to pat everyone on the back and tell them things are going to be okay but that wouldn't be truthful. In my opinion the sanctions are a major game-changer in the ammunition supply chain that is already strained. For the time being and based on what we can see so far, we believe that this will be the effective end of Russian made ammo in the USA as it plays out over the next year or so as import permits expire or are filled to the quantity limits, and in doing so eliminate supply of a huge portion of the ammo in the US commercial market. From what I understand, the USA commercial market consumes around 800,000,000 rounds of ammunition from Russia every year, roughly 800 semi truck trailers worth in a mix of the most popular calibers. For the immediate short term we expect ammo to keep coming in from Russia but I expect the importers to raise prices substantially which is understandable to me given its the end of the lifespan for their business model. The calibers we believe will be most effected are soviet metric calibers like 7.62x39, 5.45x39, and 7.62x54R because there is almost zero available manufacturing capacity for these calibers outside of Russia and what little exists will not make a significant impact in filling the needs of the USA commercial market without Russian ammo absorbing the lion's share. In addition to these calibers, I estimate that the Russians supplied 30% to 40% of the 223 Rem / 5.56 and 9mm Luger consumed at the shooting ranges across this country, and large portions of the 45 auto, 9x18 Makarov, 30 carbine, 308 Winchester / 762x51, 380 Auto, 300 Blackout and 6.5 Grendel. I see this as a potentially devastating blow to the supply for of 223 Rem / 5.56 and 9mm Luger, where the reduction in supply from Russia will be difficult to make up in the short term for other manufacturers who have already been unable to keep up with demand this past year. Consumers who have used Russian ammo regularly will have to move on from Russian made ammo to those other products made elsewhere and in doing so absorb the supply and prolong recent shortages. Again this is my opinion, based on my knowledge of the industry after 20+ years experience, and how things play out over time could be different. For me, selling Russian made ammo is about 40% of my business, and while we plan to source as much supply as we can from other sources, we do expect this to have a major negative impact on supply for 7.62x39, 7.62x54R, 5.45x39, 9mm Makarov, 9mm Luger, 223 Rem / 5.56 NATO, as well as the other mentioned calibers.”
