Re: Gun prOn!

It is very subtle on the ejection port side of the slide. Yes, AIM, with the holster, extra magazine, etc. I'm very happy with the finish.

Have a hankering for one of those older communist pistols. What says the hive (or really maybe just Vrock) ;)

Bulgarian Makarov 9x18 or...
Romanian TT-C Tokarev 7.62x25

Re: Gun prOn!

What's the velocity drop through the suppressor? Not like I'm going to weld one to my classic .270, but more data is always good. Everything I have read says that the velocity drop is not substantial*. The projectile has already made it through the barrel, where the expanding gasses work their acce...

Help me understand the point of a suppressor on .308? Not being a jerk, I honestly don't know.


Reduced noise at the muzzle for shooter and spectators.

And as Darkmage pointed out, they can change your POI. Nice suppressor DM!

Re: Gun prOn!

Yesterday I made it to the range to finish up my load workup for the 180g projectiles. I think I have narrowed the recipe down to a winner, but there was enough variation yesterday that I won't know for sure for a while. My club just finished work on their 200 yard range so I got to take it for a s...

Lets talk holsters. So those of you that CC what are you using? I have to admit I haven't found anything that I liked or was comfortable with. I think I have spent a gun's worth of money on just holsters. :P It depends on clothing and the activity. If I'm wearing more concealing clothing I have a h...

Re: How to remove the 6GB of Windows 10 you didnt ask for

Not that anyone asked, but I like W10 on the two systems I upgraded that worked. The third, is now a wasted effort. This is just how it goes with mainstream-corporate OS's. One person's happy place is another person's invasion of control. Go with something different if you don't want the coolaid MS ...

Re: update 9/9/15 issues

Went to MB site, newest bios was 2008, and already installed. Tried a "reset." It is no better, but now a lot of apps are missing.

update 9/9/15 issues

I was out of town when my wife's six year old duel core athlon with 2gb upgraded to Windows 10. From what I hear, it worked well for a few days. On the 9th there was a major auto-update (50ish files). Now the only way I can get the machine to boot is to pop out the bios battery. Battery out and back...

Re: Gun prOn!

I was weak. The CDNN advertisement for a wood furnished PTR-91K kept popping up in my email. Jesus that thing is pretty. But it seems familiar.....Is that a H&K G3 design? It is my understanding that yes, that is a clone of the civilian semi-auto model (HK91) based on the G3. I could be wrong.
