  1. Probably will catch hell for it, despite some of the picks in this list, but Proof of Life has one of my favorite gun battles. I will have to think of other movies, but right now, Heat tops my list. Gratuitous gun porn: Matrix lobby scene and T2 minigun window scene And turnoffs are any movie I have to yell TRIGGER DISCIPLINE! at the screen.
  2. I called the cops once because of a semi doing that at a similar angle but way, way longer, so taking up 2 lanes and passing damn close to other oblivious drivers to his right. As for drivers in the area, I grow so very tired of out of staters (or wannabe law enforcerers) sitting in the left lane doing 15 under the limit. However, worst of all are the indecisive drivers who come to say a T intersection, see a car a half mile down the road, decide to wait a few seconds, inch up and rethink their decision, decide to keep waiting, inch up some more, then when the oncoming car is 100 feet away, pull out at 5mph and putter down the road, hitting 0 to 35 in a blistering 45 seconds. Almost as much fun as the idiots on cell phones who you can't tell if they are drunk or just so incapable of doing two things at once that it is amazing they have lived to driving age in the first place (and if they continue doing so, may not reach much older). But really, Aunt Sarah really needs to know about how someone was mean to you at the supermarket when you left your cart in the middle of the aisle, no need to pay attention to steering 5000lbs of steel down the road at 70mph.
  3. From your example, according to an online muzzle energy calculator ( https://billstclair.com/energy.html ), 326 foot pounds ME for 9mm vs 408 foot pounds ME for the .40. Using the presets on that site, Rem Golden Saber 9mm +p - 383 foot pounds ME vs Rem Golden Saber .40 - 484 foot pounds ME. Small differences in weight but similar velocities still have a surprising effect on energy. Seems not insignificant to me, though real-world results are likely not that different seeing how they are still fairly low velocity pistol cartridges. For whatever it is worth, I have multiple 9mm handguns and one .40, so I'm happy with both calibers, and would trust either one in a carry gun. Yeah, there's more snap to .40, but I still enjoy shooting it, and I shoot reasonably well with it. I'm also not running into gun fights, nor do I carry anywhere other than my property. Bottom line, I don't think you can really go wrong with modern 9mm or .40, and with all the options we have these days, either is perfectly capable. I don't think .40 is going anywhere anytime soon*. *Except for in NJ, where I'm sure we'll be forced to only have single shot .22 flobert pistols that use biometric scanners to usually verify who is holding the gun because really, this IS New Jersey after all...
  4. Get some beads and a straw. Put the beads into the straw, then blow really hard. Find beads now scattered everywhere, repeat 2nd step. Note that this may take some time. Or realize it isn't meant to be a safe queen and just shoot it. It has character now.
  5. Well maybe my lack of checking websites these last few years has made me miss that, but I haven't seen that.. I've wanted to do exactly that for a while. I've done a bit of research on how big an uphill battle it would really be to start my own FFL... I hope it's in my future...
  6. OK, how about at least say a weekly updated set of general photos of their inventory? Most places have glass displays for handguns, and rifles...well...maybe that'll be harder. But a cell phone camera can get each section of a display case to give people a general idea of what's there. 10-20 firearms in a single picture would still be clear enough for a quick reference. Might even generate more interest...who knows?
  7. I've stopped bothering even looking at most local shop's websites - they never seem to have inventory, or the rare times they do, it is almost always without prices. I understand a small shop won't have the resources to keep things up to date, so it's not a big deal, but it would still be nice. Most of my local shops are close enough I can do a loop and cover all 4+ in a day, and if I don't find it there (or have the option to order through one), I just go to gunbroker. What I might suggest is a photo of the exterior of the business. There have been places I've tried to find that were like trying to find Waldo. Places inside other businesses should maybe mention that little fact, too. In reading posts from other people about part-time/home-based FFLs, I'd suggest those places have either an actual list of hours, or mention their hours are random, AND have multiple ways of getting in touch with them (and actually check those damn methods).
  8. Rob, I know what you mean about going to theaters - I never was a fan, especially when my system sounds infinitely better. I'd love a bigger screen (my weak link), but I've concentrated on sound and it shows...well...sounds. I know some shows are available on Netflix in 4k, but you may have minimum internet speed requirements for it to play, I swore I read something about that a while back. Wouldn't know, I don't have netflix right now. I was watching various stuff on youtube yesterday at 4k on my PC, and whenever I get a 4K TV, it will have an alternate input from my PC. What I was watching is beautiful on my 23" computer monitor... I know not all that much content is available in 4k now, but I'd use it more for 4k bluray and PC gaming (and as a 2nd/3rd monitor) One downside for when you go 4k - if you have an older receiver, it may not have 4k capabilities or only output 24/30Hz w/ 24bit color - mine does not do anything over 1080p (HDMI 1.3a) - so you'd need a new one for that too, if you want to use it for feeding multiple HDMI inputs to a single HDMI out to the TV at 4k. Make sure you research what version of HDMI the receiver has (or if it can be upgraded) - ideally you want HDMI 2.0 (+).
  9. Full 7.2 surround is hooked to my PC, xbox, and bluray, with a second 5.1 system hooked up to the TV and another dvd player in the same room, allowing me to use both the PC and have a movie or TV on at the same time. Went with Definitive Technology speakers on the primary setup, a mix of their studiomonitors, bipolar speakers, center, and supercube sub. With 7x 10" in the primary system, you get a nice back massage while watching a movie or music. There are times I realize i never heard some of the details of music on my old lesser systems. Love my DefTech speakers. I need (ok, want) an OLED or quantum dot to upgrade my current LCD tv
  10. I have a set of high-resolution, properly-lit photos I edited into a single file per gun. Each gun has at least a photo of the left and right sides, and top and/or bottom depending on location of serial number or other identifying marks. All markings, and especially serial numbers, are clearly legible in these photos. Copies are saved in multiple locations, including my phone. My main reason for this is if any of them were lost/stolen, I have a record of the make, model, caliber, and any unique marks quickly and easily available.
  11. Forum is taking a little getting used to, but I am liking it so far. It does feel a bit more 'busy' - but not in a way I can really describe, nor is it really a bad thing, just different. I'm glad for the ability to hide signatures on a per-user basis - there was one that took up more space than the two posts following it. I was getting strange notifications about posts in topics that I had never even been in. I discovered that somehow, the forum had apparently set me to receive notifications from 2 users sometime in 2016, despite having never before gotten notifications like these before the switch (nor do I remember even clicking 'follow' either of them, unless it has replaced the friends function). Took a minute or two of searching to disable it today after I thought I disabled all notifications yesterday - it was in a different section. I would love to have a way to permanently collapse the section rules. It covers a lot of screen real estate for just rules in general discussion. Not that it's hard to scroll, just an inconvenience since I've already read them (yes, really!) and don't need to see them every single time. I'd also love to see the old way of clicking on either the dot OR the thread title on a mobile browser to bring you to the first unread post in a topic. Or at least an increase on the "hitbox" for the dot - it seems way harder to hit that dot than hitting a tiny 2 point font link on a phone screen. I've never used taptalk, and have no plans to do so. One last thing for mobile browsing - is there a way to decrease overall font size for the site anywhere, or to allow page resizing? I have no problem reading small fonts, and prefer it. I dislike not being able to resize sites to my preference instead of a forced one-size-fits-all kind of thing. Last thing, I swear: Thanks for all the hard work! Having once run a forum, and having been a mod on multiple others, I know a little of what you're going through, how much work it is, and how much of a pain it is/can be. So again, thank you!
  12. https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/if-person-has-pistol-and-attachable-shoulder-stock-does-constitute-possession-nfa If a person has a pistol and an attachable shoulder stock, does this constitute possession of an NFA firearm? Yes, unless the barrel of the pistol is at least 16 inches in length (and the overall length of the firearm with stock attached is at least 26 inches). However, certain stocked handguns, such as original semiautomatic Mauser “Broomhandles” and Lugers, have been removed from the purview of the NFA as collectors’ items. [26 U.S.C. 5845, 27 CFR 479.11] I'd do some further research but I remember reading about that when looking up AOW laws
  13. Aren't those marked AUG, however? While you know it's a USR internally, I'd think something on the gun marked AUG - even if not an original part - might not fly. (I don't know if there are 3rd party, unmarked stocks) I want one of these things - I've always loved AUGs and I'm still disappointed I can't have the real deal in NJ...
  14. For many years, I've loved the look of the LR-300. One of the unique things about it seems to be the grip - if it's not a model-specific grip, I've never found it in my searches. Occasionally, a full LR300 comes up for sale, (like the $10k one on GB right now) but I'd never get one in NJ - defeats the purpose entirely (it's a side-folder piston AR type) even if I could spend the usual going price. In the meantime, I'd love to have an LR300 style grip on mine. I'm guessing it's an exercise in futility, but I'm thinking you guys might know somewhere I haven't looked. ZM is, as far as I know, no longer in business, so that's kinda a dead end. I am looking for this style: I'm thinking I'll have to make a cast of my airsoft version and try to figure out how to mold it around an A2 grip or something if I don't find one. They are strangely comfortable.
