  1. Ruger's Minis are totally different animals that really only share a cartridge with ARs. If you want a longer LOP than you've found on ARs so far, try to find one with a fixed rifle stock. If your fiance is quite a bit shorter, and you're planning to share, the adjustability of the carbine stocks can be nice. And as @peejman mentioned, spacers can be helpful.
  2. Does it look to anyone else like he might be missing his legs? Something looks off, and I can't quite sort it out...
  3. Thanks for the info @Grayfox54! I suspected that the barrel couldn't just get shortened, and that replacing steel would be a bigger hurdle than replacing wood. But I'm not knowledgeable enough to put actual numbers to it.
  4. I know a lot of you guys know a lot more about them than I do, so what's a functional Garand worth that's had the stock replaced with a sporter type stock, and the barrel cut down but the metal is otherwise decent? What if the barrel hasn't been chopped? Thanks!
  5. I'll take that as a compliment! I interviewed for a job in Murfreesboro once, (It was a great long weekend, I think I ate barbecue 6 times in 4 days.) and my wife and I got married in Gatlinburg (tried to spend more time out of town than in). If I had to leave MN, TN would be really near the top of the list. Plus, the classifieds on this site are awesome!

    .38 super???

    Buffalo Bore loads pretty good (generally pretty hot) stuff: https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_list&c=68 https://www.buffalobore.com/index.php?l=product_list&c=132
  7. Do you only get one tag in TN, or have to pay for a second one? Why not just put two on and be done with it?
  8. Nah, just a hipster chick trying to one up all her hipster friends with a super authentic outfit.

    .38 super???

    Well, let me put it this way: It's better than a .40... Oh! Seriously though, .38 super has enough energy for what you're thinking if you can find rounds loaded with suitable projectiles. In terms of economy, you're right about never finding anything that's truly cheap. You'd have to reload, or make friends with someone you're willing to entrust your fingers, eyes, and life to (and who's willing to take on the responsibility). And, if it would be an acceptable substitute, @CBOW, check the STI 2011 in the classifieds here.
  10. I'd say current manufacturing CAN BE better than ever. But if we seek to keep costs as low as possible in order to maximize profit margin, we're still perfectly capable of turning out some real turds.
  11. And it seems that two of these revolvers are exhibiting the same behavior. Maybe the same sample piece that's making the rounds, maybe a bigger issue...
  12. Uh-oh is about right. He also mentioned (about 31:39) having seen that behavior in other videos...
  13. @DaveTN, it is possible to blue at least some stainless steels. Just think, you'd have the only one on the block.

    Ruger 57 pistol

    You know what? That's a really good idea. Fingers crossed for SHOT!
