  1. There is a small independent Verizon dealer near me that has Windows 3.1 on his main terminal at the counter. As I've mentioned before, I have one customer still running Windows 98 with sign cutting software on it.
  2. Sonic weld is what I have.
  3. Between the wife and I, there are more than 4 and less than 10 FS and a pair of micro carry units around here somewhere. She's a "Glockaholic" and I'm partial to Sig. Yea we like full size frames.
  4. Black Dog Machine I have a dozen or so BDM mags. Most of them are 15 rounders and a couple of 25's. The higher cap models are too long for bipod shooting. Never had problems with any of them after several thousand rounds. (combined) ETA: I use CMMG bolts. I don't know anything about the Ciener units.
  5. Dedicated uppers are the route I chose. The wife and I now have 3 of them. 2 from these guys 1 assembled from parts from these fine folks.

  7. I have a pair of .22LR's that I shoot for various activities. A 16" that I use at 50 yards and out. That one has a Burris XTRII 2.5-10x42. Nice enough scope. Good glass. Zero stop. And tracks great. But the parallax goes no lower than 50 yards. Playing dot shooting games at 25 yards, it's less than ideal. (To be exact it sucks.) Spinners at 100 yards, and soda cans out to 175 yards, it shines. The other is a shorter barrel in a pistol configuration. It has a Barska Level 1.5-6x44 on it. (Go ahead and laugh now) It won't track worth a crap so forget dialing yardage. But once zeroed, it stays where you put it. The parallax will dial down to 10 yards. Those 25 yard dot games ... it'll run circles around the other setup. It'll remain accurate at longer yardages, but you gotta use hold overs w/o dialing. So as mentioned above, it depends a lot on what you wanna do with it. Tools for the job. PS My wife's .22LR has a Nikon 2-7 Rimfire on it. It works fine. But once again, at 25, that Barksa will run circles around it in clarity and lighting.
  8. A few years ago I was called by someone conducting a political poll. It was just before the 2016 election. I answered their questions, and then a few days later I was called again for another political poll. As the questions began, I immediately recognized them as the same questions that were asked the last time. I stopped the lady on the other end of the line and informed her that I had already answered these questions just a few days before. Then I asked her how the hell their data would be accurate if they polled the same people over and over. She said she'd check into it, apologized and hung up. They never called again.
  9. https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-pa47-16-7-62x39-upper-w-bcg-and-charging-handle.html Never had a problem with this one. Had it for about 2 years maybe a bit more.
  10. "A report published by the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium also claims the scopes in question had made it into the hands of Taliban fighters." I decided to edit what I posted earlier as it was probably in bad taste considering the implications of what "could" happen if this equipment made it into those hands. But suffice it to say, I'd sure hate to know ATN equipment was what I had to depend on in any sort of conflict. And IIRC, this won't be the first time ATN has found themselves in violation of ITAR regs. Once before it had something to do with Russian NV tubes or something of the likes.
  11. Had one. Returned to seller. Good concept, extremely poor execution. Software was the biggest problem. It would continuously lock up and/or go to a black screen requiring a hard reset to get it going again. I agree with the NV folks on arfcom .... "Run!" Check in here .... http://atnowners.com Look into the Sightmark Wraith. I don't have one .... yet. (waiting / watching)
  12. bersaguy Your computer isn't gonna stop working just because Microsh1t stops updating it. I have customers still on Vista, many still on 7, some on 8.1, with a random XP machine here and there. One still on Win98! If you're using Microsoft Security Essentials, you'll probably have to change that to something third party. Avast has a free version. Just keep on keeping on until a replacement unit is in your budget. Most home users do email, web browsing, and social media crap. All of which can be done on an iPad with much less "upkeep" over time. And you can get one from Verizon that has 4G in it if you're so inclined. I have one for field work that has replaced a Windoze laptop that I lugged for many years. As a side note, I've used Linux Mint for several years now on my personal desktop. I have Win10 set up in a VM, but I haven't even launched it in over a year. I can feel my blood pressure going up as soon as the splash screen comes into view!

  14. If your OS is Windows 7, use Microsoft Security Essentials. Any later version of Windows has Windows defender built in. Both work just as well as anything you'll pay $ for. The most important part of your security is YOU.
