    Hey pmc! M39-2

    Phil, Is this M39-2 S&W worth jumping on and how much? https://www.gunbroker.com/item/867216669 You know I don't want to be left behind the Jones and McCleans if these come up from time to time.

    FSR-89

    So, after a discussion on here, the topic of an FSR-89 came up in it. Most of us did not know what it was. After a little research we thought, KOOL!!, but, we’ll never see one. Ha ha, one came up on Gunbroker, and I bought it. As @sirhrmechanic would say, you didn’t pay too much, you just...

    Cast Steel Pocket rifle

    So last night I'm having my beer at social hour and a guy I talk to there, asks me about a pistol some friends of his found in a house they had purchased and were cleaning out to renovate. Id10t me looked it over and even ran out to the car to get my magnifying glass, but FORGOT to take a...

    .22 TCM

    I was recently talking to a friend about the .22 TCM rifle. He told me his son bought one and it could only group about 3”. He returned it and they sent another. It did the same. Anybody else have one of these? Any insight into this issue with them. Whether it’s across the board or just...

    Jimmy, I hear it. You hear it yet? The roads are full of squirrels who couldn't make a decision? ??

    Powder going bad

    For those of you who have ever wondered what powder looks like or does when it goes bad here is a pic. Note the red tinge inside the funnel. This powder has not gotten “way bad” but is starting to go. Stored over 50 years in a cellophane wrapper can (the one you see), it’s had just enough...

    I should have posted earlier. P-14

    I was watching this on GB to see if anything got added for info. I had no intention of bidding, but found out at the last minute this particular variant has a unique history. Not a sniper though, as the British only used Winchester’s. This was an early Remington equipped with volley sights...

    Anybody read the Marine Times article on new Marine sniper MOS

    So I get this article on my phone about how they need to revamp the course and they are having too many washouts. I’m not smart enough to copy the article on my new phone. Maybe one of you can help out. Anyhow, what gives? The big boys not putting money where it belongs? Wrong people with...

    Where does the loss of trust begin?

    I had read about this issue a few times already. Not sure if there were other issues long after this event, but the issue itself needs to be looked through the lens of at higher leadership. What leadership did to these men was not acceptable...

    The devil just pull a fast one on us?

    I just love the double standard so many politicians like to live by: https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBT44Ee?m=en-us&referrerID=InAppShare

    Is this story for real?

    As something I do to take a break from SH and other gun auction sites, I read the little news clips that come along. Anyhow, I come across one that said an Aerospace Engineer and a drug dealer combine to sell hundreds of illegal arms. The thing that makes me wonder, is how many the "get guy"...

    M16A4 Can someone 'splainame what the issue really is?

    So, I'm on my phone and every day I get new news briefs. https://www.wearethemighty.com/military-culture/marines-complaints-m16a4 Of the five complaints, I can see one as valid. They are too long to get in and out of vehicles all the time, and work in CQB. But the rest? What am I missing...

    Old, but still useful

    Recently, I was given a can of Dupont 4198. Still in the cellophane wrapper. This was what the M16 was supposed to use for powder in the M193 cartridges. It burns a lot cleaner than any ball powders.

    Peterson Brass

    Has anyone tried any of this yet? I can get it in .260 Rem, and 7mm-08 Rem. If anyone has tried it, how does it compare to lapua, or Winchester. I know, tough to beat the former.

    American Rifleman gets it wrong again...

    https://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/2018/2/13/guns-of-the-spanish-american-war-1898/ For a guy that wrote a bunch of books you'd think he'd want to be a little more accurate about history. Anyone notice one particular weapon MISSING? And, in it's place is a weapon that group did not have?

    The Fighting Season.

    Interesting watch of reporters embedded with various units in Afghanistan during the 2014 elections. I gotta say, the way the war is run or overwatched by the public sector is atrocious. Asking permission three different times to get a legal kill on a tali? Training the Afghani's to use arty...
