  1. I was admittedly happy to hear this too. Due Process cannot be circumvented, especially for political profit on either side of the aisle.
  2. I may have had too much homemade pizza and a couple too many PBRs....
  3. Wally, it has look look somewhat "professional" since it's a company car. Maybe a soft briefcase?
  4. For the few people who still visit - I got a new job that will require my travelling all over New England (sadly, even into Massachusetts). I have been provided a nice Subaru Outback as a company car. However, since I am using a company car, and will often carry potential customers to jobsites and will need to carry samples, having a full-sized bug-out-bag like I have in my personal daily driver just won't fly. Therefore, I'll need to set up a minimalist kit to keep with me. I don't want to attract attention or have people break into my car to get this bag; any suggestions on a good durable bag (doesn't have to be a backpack) that won't raise eyebrows? Wanted to ask youse guys on here first before I shopped around. Opinions? Thanks!
  5. Thank you, sir! Hope Snake is well - not like him to stay quiet for so long!
  6. Nope, no issues here. I think there are security updates that should happen on this forum, I'll check it out.
  7. I'm around, kid heading off to college and I'm starting a new job, plus renovating my house. Never enough time!
  8. Thanks Wally! The SurvivalCache spat must have been before my time. What was everyone's beef?
  9. Pardon my ignorance, but what's the backstory with Dan's Depot?
  10. Yep, Mossberg gave the finger to Dick's too.
  11. SIG Sauer - Just sent my P320 in for the drop-fire recall and my P220 in for a SSP tune-up with new night sights. The extractor needed to be replaced badly. I got the P220 back in like 2 weeks with just the extractor replaced. I contacted SIG and asked why they didn't replace the springs and the night sights. They apologized profusely for the goof, comped me for the freight on the initial order, then sent me a shipping label to send the pistol back to them free of charge, and they gave me the option of upgrading the sights to the new XRay 3 sights or a couple extra mags for my trouble. I took the sights and they're awesome. I got my P320 back in about three weeks with no issues. My old man had a Gen 2 Glock 22 go a kablooie on him. He sent the pistol back to Glock, they fixed it free of charge and sent it back with like six extra magazines in four weeks, if I recall. In my opinion, if the manufacturer really cares about you and their product, they should have a repair done in a month, two tops.
  12. Depends on what you're looking for. We need to narrow some things down first before we start throwing out opinions on "tactical" gear! ...and believe me, lots of opinions on here!
  13. I've had excellent luck with Streamlight flashlights - I was whitetail hunting in West Virginia, and dropped my old Streamlight Scion rechargeable in the woods. Didn't realize it until I got back home to Maine. It was a nasty winter that year, I figured it was a goner. The following year, I was keeping an eye open for the light, just in case. Lo and behold, i saw its shiny black anodized case sticking out from under some oak leaves. Score! Threw it back on the charger, and it's still working fine to this day - 10 years later. I've left Streamlight Polytac lights and Microstreams outdoors, given hem to my teenager to use (and consequently abuse) - they never stop working. I've had superb luck with Fenix lights these days, and it's what I mostly use. I have a PD35 TAC on the bedstand, and a TK20R in the bug out bag - it can be recharged via USB port, which is awesome when combined with a portable solar charger. The fact that it's watertight and so heavily built you could bludgeon an elk to death with it doesn't hurt either.
  14. So I just was handed down a BUNCH of 125-grain JHP and 158-grain LSWC bullets for the .357 Magnum. What are you guys running for loads? So far I've loaded 8.0, 8.5, 9.0, and 9.5 grains of Unique under the 125 JHP pills - gonna try them out of my revolvers and a Marlin 1894 carbine. Jacketed bullets are easy, but non-gas-checked lead bullets out (of a carbine especially) are a bit more difficult to run hot. Powders I have are: Unique, Bullseye, TiteGroup, and HP-38. Aaaaaaand Go!
  15. It's sad, but every time I head into my local Cabela's, the used gun rack has 5 or 6 Hi-Powers, and they're bringing stupid money. My brother has three of them, and so I get to shoot them regularly. They're wonderful, elegant guns - but in an age when you can get two or three Glock 19s or SIG P320s (which, on a base level, are arguable better fighting pistols) for the same price as a Hi-Power, I can see why Browning threw in the towel.
