    The "Rules" at the Hide (to aid n00bz)

    Many noobies come to the Hide and are instantly humbled by the incredible marksmanship and awesome equipment owned by the many veterans of the Board. Their problem is that they don’t know the rules of the Hide. I have put together a few rules to help noobies when crafting posts to insure they...

    F T/R Competition Stolle F-Class or Barnard P for F/TR build?

    I was all set to do an FTR build with a Barnard P action. I am using a McMillan Prone stock with clamping adjustable cheekpiece and two way adjustable stock. It will have a 32" Heavy Krieger barrel. I was planning to save a little weight by going with a March Scope. I will be using either a...

    Suppressors Finally cleared... Ti Rant 45

    Just shy of 11 months. M&P 45 with Ti-rant 45. Let me edit that to say 10 months and change. And yes, Dawson Precision adjustable night sights do clear the can.

    Rifle Scopes Swaro z6i 1-6 vs Razor Gen II 1-6

    I bought my first AR a little while ago and am looking for a day-bright scope that acts like a red dot at low mag and gets me a little more mag for distance. This is primarily for varminting. Comparing the scopes, the Swaro is obviously more expensive. It has slightly more FOV and is a full 9...

    Analysis of Mass Shootings

    Pretty interesting stuff. I have looked through a lot of the data and knew that assault rifles were a red herring, but have not really seen mass shooting data: Crime study: Handguns, not 'assault rifles,' used in most mass shootings | WashingtonExaminer.com Robert Klein of Time actually...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns M&P 45 Grip Reduction and Stippling from DFC Review

    My apologies in advance for the crappy pictures. I had a review of the M&P 45 in the works, but I just got my M&P back from Diversified Firearm Concepts and was so excited, I wanted to post the results quickly. I have not had the opportunity to fire this yet, but lots of dry fire tells me what I...

    Introducing a youth to shooting... what rifle?

    I have a 6 year old about to turn 7 that I would like to introduce to rifle shooting. I really don't like the idea of buying a junior rifle, because it is basically a throw away once my youngest hits 10 or 11. I would rather spend the money on a great rifle that I can restock. I have a couple of...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns ND vs AD vs Something else?

    I have a question about an incident that happened recently to me. I was at the range and had a round "nose up." I dropped the magazine, pulled the slide back and let it drop forward. I pulled the slide back again... no round was extracted, so I figured the round came out with the mag. I pointed...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns Help with M&P 45 and hot loads

    I have run into some problems and I was hoping the pistoleers here could help me out. I have an M&P45 that has run pretty flawless (one FTE in 1,500 rounds) using light to moderate loads (200 gr lswc + 5.1 gr W231/HP38) as well as 230 gr hardball factory loads (which is moderate to heavy). I...

    Leatherman MUT: Why you must have one.

    I buy a lot of crap. A lot of the crap I buy is overly hyped. The item might be good, but it just couldn't possibly live up to expectations. The vast majority of stuff I buy falls in this category. Especially the stuff reviewed here on the Hide. Well it is time for me to curse the Leatherman...

    Vectronix Terrapin vs Leica 1600 CRF

    I recently "upgraded" from a Leica 1600 CRF to the Vectronix Terrapin. While I haven't had the opportunity yet to actually use the Terrapin in a shooting situation, I have played with it in enough different weather environments and taken enough readings that I feel like I can do a decent...

    Sidearms & Scatterguns So with a 10 round+ ban...

    ... do the 9mm fans become 45ACP fans? It seems that the two major selling points of 9mm were capacity and recoil. With capacity off the table, 45ACP might be the way to go for EDC carry for big boys who can handle the crushing recoil of a 45 round.

    Problems with Google Chrome?

    I had this problem last night and it is continuing today. The forum is just showing up with a white background. It looks like I have full functionality, the site is just displaying weird. This is on both a Vista machine and a Windows 7 machine. On both machines, IE Explorer displays fine, so it...

    F T/R Competition Dumb Reamer Question

    I was looking for F-class reamers for a dedicated F/TR build and I noticed that most of what is available is minimum SAAMI spec. Given the velocity limitations of the 308 cartridge, wouldn't the smart way to go with a custom rig is to go with maximum SAAMI spec to give a little extra room for...

    Anybody notice LL getting lax lately?

    Tac Ops Customer Service Experience

    I sent my rifle back to Tac Ops for a check up. I was having a few issues. I blew a bunch of primers and pierced another several primers when I was shooting a hot lot of Hornady Superperformance ammo on an extremely hot day in Texas (115 degrees… at one point, the brass was almost to hot to...
