    Surefire X300U is the “A” answer. Avoid the strobe. Keep the switchology simple - light on, light off. That’s about all the brainpower you will have to spare in a real world deployment anyway. Additionally, any strobe effect that disorients your threat, will also disorient you, AND, most importantly, strobes hide subtle movement - which means you will miss threat indicators and warning signs, specifically slow movements of the hands. Get all the light (lumens and candela) you can and be able to turn it on and off.

    Dear Vice President Biden, Although I refused to listen to it, I understand that during your presidential acceptance speech, you were calling for the unity of Trump supporters. I remember four years ago my President Trump also called for unity. I remember how Congressional members of your Democratic Party responded by boycotting his inauguration. I remember how you and your Democratic party cheated and used the greatest law enforcement institution of this country to spy on my President Trumps campaign. I remember how you and your Democratic Party created a fake Russian dossier to try and impeach my President Trump. I remember how your speaker of the house ripped up my President Trumps beautiful State of the Union speech on National TV. I remember how you and your Democratic Party tried to impeach my President Trump over a Ukraine phone call. You accused my President Trump of pay to play. Come to find out Joe, it was really you and your son Hunter. I remember how you and your Democratic Party blamed my President Trump over a pandemic that he had nothing to do with. I remember how you and your Democratic Party encouraged rioting and looting of my great United States of America. I remember how you and your Democratic Party used the media to spread lie after lie about my President Trump. I remember how you and your Democratic Party stole the election from my President Trump. This Trump supporter remembers all that Joe and will NOT be unifying with your Democratic Party. This Trump supporter will be giving you the same respect you gave my President Trump. Your abject criminal dishonesty is treasonous. Ted Nugent

    Nothing wrong with Anderson at all. I feel sorry for the guys that need to have a certain logo or pay $50 for a safety, imagine having that little of a dik that you need to pay up for a weapon they will fire less than 500rds/yr lol I say this as someone who has/had LMT, COLT, NOVESKE, BCM, LARUE, etc etc etc.... I used Anderson parts for my boys first builds over the summer and was very happy

    I always find these interesting. It's an infographic of what equipment competitors were using in the 2020 US Practical Shooting Association National Championships, broken out by division. What were the top USPSA competitors running in 2020? Most of these competitors are real gear fanatics, so the list largely reflects what they feel is the best available for the sport, with a little bit of 'what's the latest fad' thrown in. It's quite detailed, breaking out everything used from shooting glasses and hearing protection brands, to gun manufacturer/custom shop, holster, belt, mag pouch, magazine supplier, commercial ammo manufacturer, bullet type and weight, and for the reloaders, powder, brass, primer, and reloading press used. Enjoy.

    Disclosure: I've transferred a lower through Ira once, and have no ongoing relationship with him or his business. Most places buying used guns will give you between 40-60% of their resale price. If he put it up for 25% over what he paid for the gun, he wasn't making it up that it was going to sell low. If the 25% more is 25% more than the gun plus ammo, that might be more in line with standard pricing practices and bumped up his margin, but seldom is selling a gun to a retail outlet an exercise in getting anything close to market value out of it.

    A few simple questions such as: Finish this statement, "Taxation is t _ _ _ t". Who said this and fill in the blanks, "“The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the "?" and I'm here to "?.” Who is John Galt?..... Who / What grants us rights? How has white privilege benefited you? If not white, how has it been detrimental to you - any answer other than "it hasn't" is unacceptable. What does "AR" stand for in "AR-15" Define the term "fully semi-automatic" (trick question). Wouldn't be that difficult.

    I had a lengthy discussion with a rep at Charlie Cooper about the 10th round (or last round) problem. It was like pulling teeth, but he finally fessed up that they purposely make it so the tenth round barely fits, even if it could cause a malfunction. They are more afraid of being sued by NY or Cali than they are the widow of some guy who's gun would not load the first round off a fully loaded modded mag. It's the morons that try to force an 11th round in 10 round mags that made that a necessary decision for Cooper. No matter what the mag capacity, it's generally a good practice to load any mag "minus 1". I knew this all along, before I called Cooper, and always loaded my mags -1. But, I'm a stubborn fool sometimes, and goddammit, I paid for a mag that functions with ten rounds and that bitch better hold ten, even if I intend to only load nine.

    To answer the OPs question... Why is it 5+ days in NJ and still minutes to hours in other states doing NICS checks? I'm no expert and have zero first hand knowledge, but I've asked the same question at my FFL out of curiosity. I was told the difference in many other states is they do an instant NICS check (directly to NICS database). In NJ it goes to the State Police and they have a trained squirrel who reviews each NICS application by clicking a button for an acorn when it gets hungry, which then sends each NICS check out to the NICS system. I think they generally keep the squirrel overfed, so it doesn't click the "give me an acorn" button very often. Oh and the squirrel is a state employee, so of course it only works Mon-Fri 9am-5pm, minus at least 1 hour for lunch, and is off on holidays (usually getting fat and overfed) obviously. BTW... I'm only being half sarcastic. My understanding is that this is basically how NICS gets processed in NJ. Someone has to do something with each check before it actually gets processed through the federal NICS system. It ain't automated. Well it is, with a meat sack in the middle to slow it all to a crawl. Someone here probably knows better, but that's what I've been told.

    The only difference is in how the mounting system works. “A” type (rail slide with latch) preferred for polymer guns ”B” type (cross bolt) preferred for metal framed guns

    If you shop around or wait for a holiday sale you can find them for around $225-$250. Cue shitposting “of my light was $50 and is just as good” (not calling out anyone specifically, just been here long enough to know what follows after you recommend quality lifesaving gear that is expensive) My response - • Buy once, cry once. • You get what you pay for. • Don’t aspire to mediocrity. • Best VALUE is more important than lowest PRICE. I have broken just about every other pistol WML out there. I have not broken these. I now have about 6 of them. They work and they are worth it. Make sure you are getting the newest light with the brightest rating (Current is 1000 lumens but there are 500 and 600 lumen versions out there from previous generations). Buy from a reputable dealer so you don’t get an air soft copy. If the price is “Too good to be true”, it probably is. Ike at Big Tex Outdoors has them in stock now for ~ $270. Fair price and a good trustworthy company.

    I find it interesting that over penetration is a concern with a 357 revolver but not an AR? The 357 is pushing a bullet with a relatively large frontal area out at 1200ish FPS. The AR is pushing a streamlined little bugger that's quite pointy at close to 3000FPS. To the OP: What is your home's layout and size? Do you share a wall with a neighbor? Do you have a spouse/kids or do you live alone? Do you have any training on firearms? Do you understand the differences between "ball" ammo and defensive ammo? Are you someone that can actually point the muzzle of a firearm at someone and attempt to destroy them? No need to answer these questions in the thread. They are posted just to give you something to think about. For me, I have a striker fired, semi auto pistol with passive safeties next to my bed with a flash light. It is loaded with defensive hollow point ammunition. Why? Because my home is small and my neighbors are close. HP's expand in walls and dump their energy into the plaster better than ball ammo will. When I miss my intended target with HP, I feel some reassurance that the bullet will stop in the wall/ceiling/floor before hitting someone that I did not intend to hit. That's me. If I had a larger house and/or more land to "defend" I would consider an AR for home defense. But for my scenario, my choice makes sense to me. It may not make sense to or for you. I have owned more than a few AR's over the years and have never considered them in a defensive role in my home. They are toys for me. I have a battle rifle, but it's not what sleeps next to me. It is, however, the gun that I would use my pistol to fight to get to if the time came. In the world, it's a very versatile tool. In my home, hard pass. And, by the way, if you're simply looking for an excuse to purchase an AR, by all means have at it. Good luck.

    This thread has been a great learning experience. Getting everyone’s opinions is always good as I get to see things from other perspectives. I appreciate the sarcasm, humor general „rubbing”, and overall civility of the exchange. Fantastic environment to participate in. Many thanks to all for your input!

    I don't see a AR as a good first choice for HD in any environment. and that's why... to me, it seems to be more of a cult then anything. I wonder how many people have actually tried moving around their house, turning doorways and walls, going around furniture, all while swinging a AR of 35" in length? In most cases, the HD encounter with a bad guy will be at short ranges, 10 - 30 ft., not 100 ft shots. Do you really need a 3300 ft/sec projectile in that situation? And, if by chance the intruder gets the jump on you, good luck trying to get that barrel up for a clean shot in close contact. A handgun, in the above situation, is more appropriate.

    Rule of thumb is 6 weeks before you plan to transplant, you can start earlier if you can keep them lit as they grow larger. I have been planting on mothers day weekend for years. Best tomato I have had is a Rutgers Jersey Beefsteak, found them at Home depot one year and have been saving the seeds since. If you see them pick up a plant or two and save the seeds, juicy, dark center, solid meat, very little cavity, and man do they taste good. The best addition I found for my soils is the Black Kow manure from Home Depot, everything loves it, quadrupled me yield.

    I feel like it's not as many stands as Clinton, but it's also not really as busy. I usually go on weekdays (I have my hunting license, and l just renewed it) so I'm not sure how busy a weekend morning is normally (probably not as busy during the winter months) I've seen largish groups shooting of like 6-8 on a single thrower at a single stand. So I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem if it's not packed. I can swing past this weekend to do some recon if there's interest.

    Brazil. Not that it couldn’t have happened here - we have all seen sketchy shit at the range. Be safe. Be smart. Don’t be afraid to call someone out on their stupid weapons handling. Remember your safety rules - They are overlapping and well thought out. Like every accidental/negligent shot that hurts or kills someone - If that guy would have followed even ONE of the four rules, no one would have gotten hurt. Loud bang and a hole in the floor/furniture maybe, but no injury.

    I cannot speak to how some individuals make the mod permanent. Just how Charlie Cooper and GMW do it. I can assure you, the epoxied mags are as permanent as permanent can be according to the law. I've also seen roll pins inserted laterally through the floor plate.

    Welcome. We should have a clay shoot at Chester WMA.

    Hi, Keith and Rhi, You can't beat the price of the WMAs for a place to shoot clays, but you're also not to far from the North Jersey Clay Target Club in Fairfield. NJCTC It's open to non-members as well as members. They are almost exclusively a trap club, but a few times a year they set up for five-stand or some other gun game. Trap is $5 a round for members, $10 for non-members. They don't sell ammo on site, but a few times a year when they get a truckload of clays, members can place an order with the supplier and have ammo delivered at the same time. Target loads seem to be one of the few things that haven't shot up in price. This month's delivery was still priced at $56 for a flat of 10 boxes Federal Top Gun in 12 Ga, no shipping or tax. Lots of other brands, gauges available as well, plus wads and shot for the reloaders (they can't bring in powder or primers).
