    Sorry to hear bro. Just because of the high capacity mags? or is there another reason I'm unaware of? Right on the case of mine it says "These high capacity magazines are not legal in California."

  5. Just to give you guys a heads-up, I got a Foxx Trapp holster (foxxholsters.com) and the fit, function and feel are amazing! I have been using a Crossbreed-style for CC in the past and I'm sold on this new design. Great retention, quick draw and comfortable.

    I'd absolutely love one of those. Can't see myself owning one anytime soon.

    I'm seriously considering dropping the bones for an FN FS2000, but I've never shot a Bullop-style gun. I hear some very mixed opinions on them.

    Crossbows are fun, but I never got real into them. I'd opt for a synthetic or light-metal stock. You're much less to care if it gets a little banged up. At least that's how I feel about synthetic vs. wood stock rifles.

    Ahh, the good ol' "pig." Great machine gun, but got its nickname because it didn't like to get dirty; or it would often jam. The M60 was largely modeled off the German MG42 (which is still the most badazz machine gun ever built.) The MG42 (or the milled version MG34) was so far ahead of its time in so many ways. Even to this day, it's still an amazing piece of gun engineering. They purposely keep the prices of any select fire gun insane to discourage people from buying them; even though can you legally can with a class 3 license and tax stamp. You could also just get a "trust" to obtain a class 3 weapon or silencer which is a hell of a lot easier, but has limitations; especially when traveling.

    I just bought a crossbow myself this year to play around with (Barnett Jackal.) I haven't had a chance to shoot it too much yet, but I can really see myself getting into bow hunting more in the near future.

    Something with a nice 150lb pull and a synthetic stock should work well. The synthetic stock also won't be affected by weather and temperature changes like wood is susceptible to. Having said that though, I still much prefer a wood stock on my rifles.

    Bullpup weapons are one of those designs you either love or hate. I shot a Steyr AUG earlier this year and it was definitely fun, but it just seems really qwirky to me. I can definitely see the combat applications that it was designed for (CQB type stuff), but I don't see any full scale change to this type of weapon system.

    You may absolutely love it though once you try it out; my buddy does. Either way though, the FN FS2000 is a nice looking weapon. I really want to get a KRISS Vector K10.

    I just love the smaller weapons (not smaller caliber). I don't know if it's because of my smaller frame, but I've always been attracted to "compact" tactical weaponry. I was never the dude that grabbed the biggest knife in the case. Something about the maneuverability has always been appealing to me, and the Bullpup fits that design.

    Now, if I were to decide to spend the money on something different, I'd probably end up with a more typical M4 style AR in 308. I have a nice share of handguns; I've been neglecting rifle purchases. Lot's to catch up on.

    Even in video games I tend to go for the ultra-light armored, fast action classes. No clue.

    Nothing wrong with that at all. While I love my AR-15, it's nowhere near my favorite gun to shoot. I much prefer WW2 era guns overall to both collect and shoot. I think it's just my interest in WW2 history and all the nostalgia involved with the weapons.

    I have decided that I'm going to put together and AR-10 style weapon and customize it to how I want it. I'm just gonna buy the lower right now, and then slowly get the parts over time as I find a good deal on them. It should be a fun project. Hopefully I can get myself set-up for reloading next year and pump out some .308. It isn't cheap right now and doesn't look to be anytime soon. The expense to reload is a lot up front, but it should pay out nicely in the end. It would be a fun hobby; especially tweaking your own loads.

    I really want to get a Smith and Wesson "Shield" in .40 cal as an alternate carry option to my Glock 26. I held one the other day and they're really nice; great trigger for a subcompact gun. I typically don't like the .40 cal in a subcompact (recoil is just too snappy), but this little gun is nice for the price. The subcompact gun has really grown on me the last few years and the market is going crazy with them right now. It's good though because many of them really make fantastic carry guns.

    I absolutely love that stuff. I shot an M1 Grand the other day that my brother's friend had. That was cool. With me being southpaw, the mag shot up and hit me in the head

    That sounds like a solid project, and one I've never even considered. How much do you think you could save against a, say, $1500 AR-10 that you bought new?

    As for reloading, I'd really like to do that, and hope to in time. I just don't have the space for it right now. It's a great skill to have, saves lots of money, and if SHTF you're going to be a kingpin. - Right now, I'm just doing my best to stockpile various calibers and protect myself against inflation for years to come.

    Yes, they are pretty snappy, but considering it's a carry gun, it's there to protect you and not for plinking. If you ever had to use it in SD scenario, I think you would lavish in the recoil.

    How do you like carrying the G26? - I have a Kahr CW9 for carry, and it's about 16oz loaded. I don't think I'd like carrying anything over 18oz, but my wife needs a new carry weapon, and I am considering giving her this one and getting myself a CW45.

  15. I just picked up my new gun tonight. I've never had an AK-variant weapon, so I got a converted Saiga AK-variant in 223/5.56. - Also got 4x Bulgarian mags with the deal. Can't wait to hit the range!

    It's nice knowing I have a gun that doesn't require me to unload additional cash to make it enjoyable.

    Thanks!

    I may get a Hogue grip for it, but doubt I'll do much more. I understand that these guns aren't nearly as accurate at long range vs. an M4-style weapon, so why try to make it look like one? Iron sights are fine for me. More gear, more problems.

    If my bank account can handle it next month, and assuming something is available, I'll probably put together a nice, tactical 308 bolt rifle. It's tough being a lefty looking for a bolt gun.

    Left handed guns are around but a lot of them are special order from the dealer. Or you can get lucky and find one at the gun shows. You could always look on Gunbroker.com for one and have it shipped to your FFL dealer.

    Ya, they're out there. - I'll probably end up getting one on GB if I don't see the model I want soon. - Or I can do an AR-10 build, which, considering the political climate may be a better option.

  21. Very nice looking looking Saiga, IC! I love Russian firearms. You will love the AK platform. The design and functionality are legendary. The .223/5.56 round has better cumulative ballistics and inherent accuracy than the 7.62 x 39, so this gun should still prove to be pretty accurate. Just make sure that your barrel is indeed chambered for 5.56 before shooting it, otherwise gas pressure issues will occur.

    This is my new toy:

    VEPR 12 (12 Gauge) Semi-automatic shotgun

    004.jpg

    It's newly imported from Molot in Russia. Basically, they took everything that was wrong with the Saiga 12 shotgun and made it better. It is your standard AK platform and functionality with a chrome lined barrel and gas chamber. This thing has a self-regulating gas system as well, so it will shoot anything from bird shot to 3" magnum loads without a hiccup. I finally got to shoot it last week, and this thing is an absolute fukcing beast!

  22. I hope you all got a chance to buy some magazines before the market went insane. You literally can't find high capacity magazines anywhere online right now. The demand has actually shut down some very popular etailers because they literally couldn't keep up with the order volume/demand...

    Nice Vepr 12! There is a local guy that will be getting those in stock pretty soon. I plan to grab one if the price is right. That's a sick gun!

    I actually managed to score ANOTHER AK, chambered in 7.62x39 for a very fair price. It's an M&M 10-762; bought it with 4 US Palm mags, 2 steel surplus, and 1 Bulgarian Circle, over 250rds of ammo, a Polish folding stock, Primary Arms MD-09 sight, and a couple other nice dressings for 1k. That's not bad at all in this market, or in general. I actually found a place still stocked on Bulgarian Circles, so I bought four @ $31ea (standard) and will be selling the US Palm mags. I don't care for those too much.

    The market has been nuts, and I'm so depressed for not taking advantage of it. A few weeks back I considered buying a bunch (50-100) of Pmags in case this happened, but I opted to purchase some survival supplies instead. Bad idea.

    I did, however purchase shares of RGR and CAB; that way I can play the market a little without selling any of my supplies. They're both trading around $42, with their 52-wk high being at around $60. I'll see what happens there. I'm young, so if I screwed myself by doing that, I will learn from it and it's not going to hurt me much.

    You still made a nice haul there my friend! I would definitely recommend buying up what you can right now. I'll let you know if I see any good deals on mags/ammo in the coming weeks. There are quite a few places that will be getting pmags in next week. There are still a few places that have decent deals on drum mags for the AK if you're interested. I personally don't like them, but it's always good to have; even to sell if everything goes south.

    Let me know if you want to sell those US PALM AK30 Mags. I love them and will buy all (4) from you. Hit me with a PM if interested.

    If you have a chance to buy the VEPR 12 definitely GET IT! This thing is an absolute beast and well worth the price tag!

    Check out Classicarms if you're looking for some more steel mags for the AK. These are Polish made and creme of the crop in terms of steel AK mags. I have some and love them:

    I would have loved to sell the mags to you, but I had a buyer today, so I've got to follow through.

    It's funny you mention Classic Firearms; I was just going to PM you about their asking price for the VEPR 12. They're actually just down the road from me. Apparently they expect to get them in after the 1st of Jan, so I hope to be first in line on that! I'm also debating purchasing a second M10-762 through them for investment purposes, and even if I didn't sell it, it would be nice to have a gun with the same parts as my other SHTF AK, or even for my wife to hit the range with me.

    I also see that they're expecting some Russian surplus guns, so I'll have to wait and see what that's all about.

    Ohhhh I'm excited.

    Who is expecting the Pmags to be in stock soon?

    You know, those steel mags are nice, but I'm a little concerned about what I'm going to get. I've got one steel mag that's AWESOME, it's got a rounded follower on the rear, but the one I have that has a vertical follower, much like that picture at Classic (possibly the same thing) fits extremely tight in my magwell but has a lot of wobble. - The steel mags are the absolute best when they fit right, but they don't always work. I've never had a Bulgarian Circle 10 Waffle that didn't work well, so I have been buying those.
