  1. Yes. Jump on it. Where are you seeing this? No need to have bho it's just a personal preference. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  2. Steel works fine. The only thing I don't like about it is the reenforcement on the mags tends to slow up my reloads because it gets caught up in the magwell unless you're Travis Haley or Chris Bondy. While part of that is a training issue, it does happen. I have not had it occur with a polymer mags. I don't like the Korean mags but I do have three 20 rounders that have held up so far. My "go to" mags are the Bulgarian Circle 10 and Russian Bakelite preferably the ones with steel feed lips. They are light, reliable, and most importantly look awesome in the gun. I'm not a big fan of the Magpul Pmag or the Gen 3 mags. Of all the AK malfunctions that weren't training induced, one was with a sling getting caught in the action, two were with Magpul mags, and three with a dented steel mag. I like the Magpul AK mags for training because they are cheap, easy to clean, and I don't mind beat the crap out of them but wouldn't recommend them for serious use. They also have numerous documented issues and I'll post some links down below. This isn't all but just a few of the highlights. And while I have sadly owned both crapco and promag, do yourself a favor and stay away from them. They are crap and have thin weak feed lips. No sense in wasting money on them when steel mags are so cheap. Just realize that mags are an expendable commodity. For example, I just killed my first AK mag last weekend after I realized I dented it. I couldn't load it past 28 rounds and it would cause double feeds on the last three rounds in the magazine. So it got the hammer and now will open beer bottles and be my mag block if I need to put an AK in a vise. Hope this helps. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  3. Then that's a definite no from me on another hunk of junk from Remington Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone know if you can still port load this monstrosity? Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk

  6. I'd love some training classes or money to deposit on a class. I've got everything I need Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  7. Considering how slow this guy was it was shocking. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  8. I'll add that including this class I've taken 56 hours of training this year and this was the one I took the most away from. YMMV. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  9. I meant a guy at a class in October who works for Beretta. He said you'd be surprised to know what makes it out of Beretta. I believe he cuts the feed ramps for the pistols and said one day that he received a barrel with no rifling. This doesn't surprise me too much when you consider what they are paying and that there aren't a lot of machinists in the area. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  10. I knew about all of that and didn't care. No didn't have a problem with anything we did. I felt safe the whole time I was there and so would the other 11 who were there. I understand why I did everything that's detailed in the curriculum. While I may not agree with everything 100% the thing that was said was just do it for the class and then if you don't like it then to keep it in your toolbox. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  11. I've been meaning to head your way. Trying to get as much training in before I graduate and have bills to pay. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  12. I killed a doe this afternoon. There were a couple of bucks fighting I got to watch in the field today. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  13. Check out Green Force Tactical. They may have something for you. I know of a few discount codes too. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  14. Best thing I can suggest is finding someone who teaches a dedicated AK class. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  15. All I go for is a group the size of my fist in the upper thoracic if it's for combat accuracy. That's when I want speed and accuracy to mesh. Dave Spaulding suggests something along those lines if an ideal shot group in a shooting. For accuracy and speed, I run drills that use 3x5 cards or smaller target zones but I still shoot with a combat mindset. I think the problem for many people is one they don't train, practice, or dry practice. Shooting is just punching holes in paper. Anything I try to do outside of trap is combat related. That's my two cents. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  16. I liked the legal part a lot. While we can disagree on how valuable the training is, this is what I need after a long block of having no training that is mindset focused. I honestly don't think I shot more than 500-600 rounds but it could have been more. It's much more than burning powder. I've never taken a Farnham class but he's on my list of people to train with.

  17. Great class. Definitely worth the money. If you're one of those people that don't like them or James Yeager go train and experience it for yourself. The lecture and mindset stuff is worth way more than the class alone. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  18. Probably why they fired John Currie. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  19. I'll take a look at it. If I can find some reviews I'll definitely consider it. I'm just unsure of the stitching and quality. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  20. Glad to have you. Hope you enjoy your new state! If you are the training type you're in a great location for it. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  21. Glock 19 in a Green Force Tactical India or India Alpha or a M&P Shield in a NSR Tactical LLC-4. The 19 rides around 3-4 and Shield gets carried appendix. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  22. After some more research and seeing SOE has Typhon and coyote in stock, I'm having an easier time purchasing one. Although I don't like the price tag I do understand why it costs so much. If I don't like it I can always sell it and I won't lose any money. The more I dug into it it seems like whatever I configure isn't going to be an active shooter bag or bail out bag but instead what I'll train and use. I'll run two rifle mags, two pistol mags, a crap ton of tourniquets, and two ifaks. For me, I feel like this best suits my needs. Although I'm not 100% on the decision I will be doing some more research in between now and probably the first week of December. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  23. Reason I really like the SOE Active Shooter Bag. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  24. I want a shoulder strap. That's why I've settled on one of those bags. 3 mags and then everything else will be medical. I do like that the inside of the active shooter bag is covered in velcro so that I can add all sorts of things inside if I want. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  25. After recently attending Versatile and Critical Rifle Applications at Hill Top Firearms Training Center, I realized how much I did not like chest rigs. For the majority of the course, I ran magazines out of my pockets and I could not truly tell a difference in speed between the pockets or chest rig. I do know I move a lot better without stuff on my chest. So due to these revelations, I decided that due to what I do and where I stay for most of the year, it would behove me to go to a quick grab and go option. This brought me to either a bandolier or a bail out bag/active shooter bag. Because I don't want more stuff on my chest, the bandolier is out. Now excuse the long winded explanation but could anyone who has experience using one of these bags please tell me what they think of it. Right now I believe the best two options are the SOE active shooter bag or the US Peacekeeper Rapid Deployment bag. I would appreciate pictures and advice on setting one of these bags up.
