  1. Just to clarify: no porting for either pump or semi shorties (so a mossberg 500 SPX which comes factory ported is out?) http://snakeriverarms.com/wp-content/themes/shopperpress/thumbs/pro_10247_2_5.jpg
  2. Looks so good so far. Can't wait to see more progress photos.
  3. Forecast says 50% chance of snow, and snow earlier in the week. Anyone know how we find out if/when it is cancelled?
  4. Weather was huge turn off for me. Next time there's a match, with a little more notice I would love to give it a shot (pop that 3-gun cherry)
  5. Why is it so pretty and not so pretty at the same time. I want to have it, but I don't want it. BUT I WANT ONE. BUT I DON'T. AHHHHHHHH
  6. I use a Contour camera (the ContourROAM, older model that's waterproof) and a StrikeMark Picatinny rail mount (which when mounting the camera, scratches the finish in a certain spot consistently but doesn't affect anything).
  7. Don't forget, AR500 plates for body armor behave just like AR500 plates for shooting steel. There will be flecks of copper jacketing and other components of the bullet spraying everywhere after a shot (in particular... watch out for your face). You can't beat proper armor and you might as well go multi-hit Ceramic (for weight savings and durability) since you can get a pair for 250-300.
  8. I'm a fan if the MBUS and I use them. All of the ones mentioned in the thread are solid options and all can be prone to failure if dropped. Andrew of Vuurwapen Blog did a review of popular BUIS after a drop test directly onto the sight when mounted. http://kitup.military.com/2012/07/back-up-iron-sight-drop-test.html It all ends with what you prefer the look and price of when we are talking about first rate manufacturers.
  9. If you have a google account, you can just upload it to Google Drive and allow anyone with the link to view it... then copy+paste the link here to JUST your photo. Or click the More Options link where you are going to post a reply and select [bROWSE] under ATTACH FILES, navigate to your photo, click on ATTACH FILE and then ADD REPLY.
  10. Do not forget a WML does not have to directly illuminate a target and there are techniques to avoid pointing your weapon at a non-threat, ESPECIALLY in the confines of your home since that is what appears to be your main area of use. Any decent WML (either Streamlight TLR-1/2/3, SurefireX###, Inforce APL, etc.) will have sufficient illumination to cast ambient light. With both hands-on with your weapon + WML with light engaged, at a low ready or a position Sul you will cast a hotspot on the ground, enabling ambient light to illuminate the area, and keeping your weapon pointed in a safe direction yet quickly available immediate action. Just a suggestion! Otherwise if you are completely set against solely using a WML... I would suggest a handheld light AND WML so you can perform any number of firing techniques with handheld light OR drop it and engage.
  11. What do you plan on using it for? EDC/CCW? Or just a sturdy belt? For quality, nylon kit I would recommend going OSOE (Original S.O.E.) gear (soebelts.com). Many customizable options to choose from and great quality. Just pay close attention on sizing instructions. They have some amazing pieces of kit and tons of belt options. Other decent gear that don't look out of place would be some 5.11 web belts with the friction lock (either single or double webbed for rigidity).
  12. Let the guy breathe. Haha. I am not part of the order but was interested and impressed with his updates. He has been communicating since he placed the order.
  13. Just go Safariland ALS. The BlackHawk! Serpa is good for a budget retention holster but the issues listed above far outweigh the fact it's inexpensive. Also if you go ALS you can go light bearing and it will retain with OR without the light. Just be mindful that the offset of the opening for the light bearing models will have a gap for small fingers to still be able to pull a trigger at the right angle and if so inclined. Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
