Re: Why some Law Enforcement thinks CHL holders are...

Odds and spatial displacement are a strange thing. In the unlikely event that a CHL (or off-duty LE, for that matter) is near an active shooting situation in a crowded environment: It's actually more likely that they will be "in the vicinity" than under immediate and direct attack. Consider, for any...

On a more serious note, some items can be difficult prior to and shortly after a major election.
FN has stated that MSRP on most items will rise soon, as part of their regular price adjustment schedule.

Re: Congresswoman, 6 Others, Killed By Gunman

I think the politics of the situation probably interfered with seeking a death sentence. The ACLU does what it does, regardless, and there's a place for that. Me: I don't care if the bottle cracked because it fell of a shelf or it was a factory defect, it's getting recycled. I'm not going to stick i...

Re: Congresswoman, 6 Others, Killed By Gunman

Loughner, 24, was sentenced Thursday to life in prison without parole for the rampage. U.S. District Judge Larry A.

Re: Why every vote matters

922(o) needs repeal.

Not because it's an evil gun control measure. [Which it is.]

As a deficit reduction measure. While a drop in the bucket against the trillion$ of deficit, there's 26 years of pent-up demand at $200 a pop. That's a chunk of change into the treasury.

Re: MP5+5.7=MP5.7 ??? Anyone?

Any post by anyone in this thread that is not related to an HK-looking, 5.7-shooting firearm will be considered off-topic and receive a formal warning.

If that kills the thread, so be it.

Re: Is there a date code on FiveSeven magazines?

It probably is a date code or lot-sort or shift code. I haven't been able to puzzle through the scheme that is used (not a lot of data or data points), but others might have more insight.

Re: MP5+5.7=MP5.7 ??? Anyone?

It'd be easier to take a $600 HK33 clone and down-scale its internals to the 5.7x28mm than to try to shoe-horn the 5.x7x28mm into firearm designed for .22LR (or 9mm, 10mm, or .45)

Not that it would be "easy." (and HK be still be HK and would still hate you.)

Re: Tornado Technologies - barrel threading

If you built up your barrel (ie similar tornado tech extension) to the right size, could you field strip your gun? If right size = 1/2" OD, then no. Most of the multi-caliber suppressors that can function with the FsN use a 10x1M to 1/2"x28 adapter to attach to the pistol. The adapters don't cost a...
