Day By Day

    I hope the critical defense in .40 cal. The round is a little light at 165 grains, but it packs 504 ft-lbs of goodness at the muzzle.

    Though I would forgive you for using the Hornady 100 grain short barrel 9 mm in a pocked 9 like the Sig p365, I hope if you’re using a full size 9 that you get either Gold Dot 124 gr +P or the equivalent Federal HST.

  • JTC

    5-6 thousand of Hornady what?

    Might want to hold off turning dollars into noise and fun for a while, maintain the reserves, just in case.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      My thought too. Hornaday-what-caliber? Whatever, Zed is ready to start reloading. Will the twins help? Hope he has powder enough, and keeps lots and batches separated by bullet weight and powder charge.

    • Browncoat57

      Don’t they make FMJs in addition to more… exotic stuff?

  • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    Samuel help Zed with the reloading? I think Samuel is small enough to be a powder charge weight.

  • cz93x62

    Our girls prefer Nosler Ballistic Tips (.224″ x 55 grain) in the 5.56 x 45. Sub-MOA to 300 meters.

    • Capn Jack

      Good choice.

      • Mike-SMO

        Different frequencies and different realities.

        It is just necessary to “Ack” the transmission.

        Or so I was told.

  • WayneM

    They grow up so damn quick… It’s just the other day the twins were learning to reload…

  • T Paul

    Not listening is why the human race didn’t die out shortly after we developed speech.

  • Pete231

    Invest in rare metals… buy brass and lead.

      You prep your way, I’ll prep mine! 😉

    Only 25 per magazine. 30 is hard on the springs.

    • eon

      The 20 was originally designed for 15 as per the USAF spec. The 30 was designed for 25 but some mother’s son at Army Ord found he could force 30 into it.

      15 and 25 was always the rule and it still should be.

      clear ether


      • PaulS

        Not arguing, but “originally designed” AR magazines should be in the antiques bin, but good to know if they need to be used. 😉
        And seriously, if they wanted them to hold-5, the follower would have been designed to bottom out sooner, which likely would have improved performance characteristics anyway.
        Suggest getting some currently designed mags for full capacity.
        Powder dry! 🙂

        • Roland Deschain

          I have read in one gun mag or another that new spring metallurgy eliminates the need to “underload” newer magazines, like Magpul Pmags,

        • JTC

          I have paid as little as $7 in bulk for P-Mags; I’ll junk a few if needed before I will short them. Which is unlikely as I rotate fully a dozen each loaded and empty mags once or twice a year, never noticed any weakening of springs. Also knowing the company’s history, if we asked they’d probably ship us each a dozen gratis.

  • Not listening – to the Crown, to the slavers, to the Totalitarians, to the home-grown Commie/Socialist stooges… is why we kept what Liberty and Freedoms we still have. Only six thousand? Yer slippin’, Zed. You know history well enough to buy it cheap and stack it deep, along side the other vicuals against Der Tag….

  • Hotrod Lincoln

    “Precious Metals” indeed- – – – – -when the defecation hits the air handler, gold and silver will be worth a lot less than lead and brass. With a good supply of ammo, getting the other stuff necessary for survival becomes a lot easier!

  • DogByte6RER

    ‪What’s an AR-14?!? Now that Biden wants to take them away, I want to go out to buy one. Obviously Biden’s brain has gone CornPop!

    Listed on eBay, an AR-14 seems to be a model of windshield wiper blade, a decommissioned US Navy auxiliary ship, or a vintage set of acoustic speakers.

    So this is what Biden wants to seize?!? You can have my wiper blade when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.

    • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

      I’d forgotten about Acoustic Research AR-14 speakers.
      Good speakers.

  • Hotrod Lincoln

    Check out the Palmetto State Armory website- – – – -they’re taking orders for a laser-engraved “AR-14” stripped lower receiver. It’s got a lot of other nice “Quid Pro Joe” quotes engraved on it as well! Be sure to give them the shipping information for your FFL dealer when you make your order.

    • Roland Deschain

      I just checked them out. Funny!

  • Pamela

    I hope Samuel is wearing gloves, if they make them that small.
    Is he counting cartridge, muzzle loaded, …

  • Halley

    In my calculations: Who benefited from the crash oh so magically timed during campaign 2008? Who is benefiting now?

    I seldom don tinfoil hats, but the TDS virus combined with an insatiable lust for power is getting out of hand…

    • JTC

      And the shocking thing is that nothing else matters; not the people or the country or the world…

      Everything is expendable in the quest to Get Trump.

    • NotYetInACamp

      It was spoken about in 2010 of a meeting in 2010 that the plan for much was already in place ready for the opportune time. whadahecksdoIknow? Maybe? las3 letters?

      • NotYetInACamp

        2005 meeting of evil people. correction. not 2010.
        What? Me wrong?

  • Toxic Deplorable Racist SAH B Woodman

    “Men never listen”
    Au contraire.
    Men always listen. They (we) are just selective about what they (we) reply to.

  • JTC

    This self-quarantine thing sounds pretty good…total privacy, plenty of food and drink, books, videos, plenty of bed rest; that’s a great vacation right there!
