  1. I bought a single press setup from a coworker which included several reloading manuals. The "newest" manual of the bunch is a Hornady 7th edition which appears to have been published back in 2010. I have some questions about reloading manuals.. My first question is even though it's an older edition, as for loading 9mm, .45 ACP and .223 ammo, does the data change much with newer editions? Should I buy the latest edition of their reloading manual? I know there are many different manufacturers that publish their own manuals. Is one brand better than the other? Thanks.
  2. My usual carry is a Glock 19 gen 5 riding in an Alien Gear Shape Shift 4.0 holster. I've been eyeballing a 21 to buy for carrying a some point down the road.
  3. I would want my bag to be more like the last scenario you described and also as a SHTF pack if possible.
  4. I've been toying with the idea of putting together a bug out bag. I'm not very familiar with what all would need to be in the bag except maybe a first aid kit, water and some non-perishable food among other things. I've read some about the "72 hour" bags. I think I would rather put my own together instead of buying one prepackaged.. I was looking a the Red Rock assault pack as a starting point. I like the fact that it isn't very expensive and can hold a hydratuon bladder. I've looked at some other brands but they are quite pricey. Any suggestions on brands of bags that won't break the bank and the essentials to keep in one? Thanks.
  5. I blame that common core math crap they teach them these days...
  6. I have been keeping my HD shotgun loaded with a full tube and a round in the chamber with the safety on. After reading a few articles about why that is a bad idea, I decided to keep the tube full, hammer down with the safety on. Does anyone on here keep their HD shotguns with a round in the chamber? Since a shotgun doesn't have a drop safety, I guess the fear of an AD if the gun were dropped and having 00 buckshot tearing through something I don't want it to made me reconsider my strategy.
  7. My HD weapon is my Mossberg 590 with TL Racker light. I used to keep my G23 with laser in my nightstand but swapped it out after I got my Mossy.
  8. Just picked me up the Vantrue N2 Pro. I was looking forward to mounting it when I came across an article about dash cams and found out that the ones that mount to your windshield are illegal in some states like GA & AL. I have a GPS mount that I've used before that mounts to my windshield and never had issues. Does anyone on here who uses a dashcam mount them to the dash instead of the windshield? Below is the article I found. https://www.lifewire.com/aare-dash-cams-legal-534879 Edit: I finally found a mount that attaches to the rear view mirror. Hopefully this will work.
  9. Maybe they hired a "head engineer"?
  10. I was thinking the same thing when I first read about it...lol. I think the name of the ship is named Blue Origin. I have my own twist to that name...the Blue Organ...
  11. Speaking of my previous post, check out this idiot who had a dash cam and got caught up in road rage. How he hasn't been charged I don't know but it was very stupid.
  12. My reasoning is mostlly based on a situation that happened to a friend of a coworker. He apparently got involved in some road rage incident in which a gun was supposedly displayed. From my understanding he was in some serious trouble and eventually went to court to answer the charges. The case was postponed on several different occasions because the "victim" never showed up to testify and the case was eventually dismissed. He was out of tens of thousands of dollars in attorney's fees because of that accusation though. Dunno if he could sue the accuser to recoup attorney's fee or not though.. Since I drive armed 99.9% of the time,I just want to kind of protect myself from some vindictive road rage driver who may try to say I did something like that. I still haven't decided if I will get one or not but the thought of losing all that money over a false accusation is scary.
  13. This brings a question to mind. If pulled over and I have a dash cam running, do I let the officer know upfront or wait and see if they ask me about it? I'm currently looking at this one to buy.. https://www.amazon.com/N2-Pro-Infrared-1920x1080P-2560x1440P/dp/B0742J69SQ/?_encoding=UTF8&pf_rd_p=3916d856-3bce-4f10-8f05-902be920fe19&pd_rd_wg=h4HzF&pf_rd_r=BEKBDRQ3W271MNC9TSYF&pd_rd_w=gXZi3&pd_rd_r=a442af46-1fde-4e02-b777-bda50f9b7405&ref_=ci_mcx_mr_hp_atf_m
  14. I have one for my RIA 1911 and really like it. I also bought a matching magazine holster for it. They also have good customer service of you have any questions.
  15. I am looking to get a set of offset flip up sights for my AR and saw any different ones on Amazon. I bought a pair called Souforce for another AR a few years ago and they are okay but was wondering if there may be better ones available. I would like get the ones with the dual apertures. Any suggestions? Thanks.
