  1. I don’t necessarily agree with everything he says. Some of it is different and relevant to their experience level. But this is a good video. Especially to the revolver nonsense. That’s some boomer fudd BS that needs to go away.
  2. Go figure. That’s BS. I wish they’d pass constitutional carry here. It’ll probably never happen tho.
  3. I’m guessing Hawaii recognizes none?
  4. Shoulda coulda woulda. No one knew they were gonna reach the prices they have. My dad had a few he sold in 88-89 for pennies compared what he could’ve gotten had he waited.
  5. Oh wow. Yeah that wasn’t very smart. That MP5 would damn near pay for a college education nowadays. The Macs are climbing but not very fast.
  6. Nah. Machine guns are fun but I can think of more entertaining things to spend that sort of money on. Now if I won the lotto or something, different story. But otherwise I’ll pass. I’ve shot enough machine guns to have the itch satisfied.
  7. Nevermind the $8k-$10k minimum price tag for a 9mm subgun.....
  8. I’d go through even more 9mm per year!
  9. My Glock 17 has a longer barrel! Between the barrel length a PDW stock, it’s tiny.
  10. Yep. All 9mm double stack mags work. 26/19/17/18.
  11. I wanted a compact SBR to mimic a sub gun. Also I have a suppressor in purgatory for it. To keep it as compact as possible I went as short as reasonably possible. So if building with the same intentions, I’d do it again. I don’t have any complaints. It’s just a range toy to be honest. Not that I wouldn’t use it with some +P HSTs for defensive use. Would be the same as using a Glock 17 but even easily being shoulder fired. Mine is a Glock lower. Since I already had so many Glock magazines it just made sense.
  12. Interesting. My 9mm SBR has a 4" barrel so using normal pistol ammo is fine for it. But if I ever switch to a longer barrel I'll look into it.
  13. I've always assumed this was the case. Handguns generally use fast burning powders in order to get as much as they can from the short amount of time they have to make it happen. But they also usually leave some meat on the bone. Close range shots from a handgun always leaves tone of soot and stipling and even flakes of completely unburned powder. This kinda confirms it.
  14. Nah. Undercut my trigger guard years ago. I haven't shot a factory Glock frame, for any amount of time, in years. I don't wear gloves unless I'm going to be on the range for a day or two or more. One day and I'm fine. It's when I have go multiple days. Also if I'm happening to get to play with a machine gun, I'll wear gloves then.
  15. I just use Mechanix mechanic gloves for a little blister protection.

    The weather here is absolutely terrible though. Not to mention that Texas won't be red for long. We are teetering on purple as it is, it'll be like California before I die.

    Ohhhh. 20 acres would be doable. Around here anyway. Not cleared though. It would probably be full of timber. But if you picked it right and got pine timber, you can sell the timber and make some money back. Even better if it’s hardwoods.

    Still depends on where. Around here, $250k will buy a decent 1500 or so 3/2 on 5ish acres about 20 mins from civilization. It’ll also get a New build 1800 or so 3/2 on a lot in a new subdivision. Hill Country, you aren’t touching much for $250k DFW not gonna touch much. West and North, probably a little better.

    We have plenty of electrical engineering jobs in the plants around here. Just saying. The weather sucks, but the cost of living is cheap. The gun laws are mostly good. Biggest downside is dealing with carrying one. But they aren't bad.
