  1. I'm putting money towards an M1 garand from the CMP
  2. I prefer to just cut them up and fry them, nice and hot, though these are noticeably less hot than years past
  3. Apparently a jalapeno plant has decided to appear out of nowhere

    i hit 5k this last weekend. Not a single malfunction, not a single issue. Only things changed on the gun were the sights (i got some ameriglo agents) and I've slightly knocked down the trigger dingus. Not all of the 5k were mine though. I've let about 15 or so people handle and sometimes shoot it. Pretty much everyone has walked away impressed. I know of at least 4 people who bought one after shooting mine. I've also gotten a chance to play with a G45. Its nice, but i still prefer the 19x. If you think the 19x is a bit too expensive, or some other feature is just not for you, the 45 is a great option if you're looking for a commander style Glock I've read a bit and the consensus is that this is just a limited edition, and i really do hope that isn't the case. This is a great handgun, and I think glock would do well with having a permanent higher end line with things like the 19x, and more tricked out versions of the 34, 17L, and perhaps a 19x version of the 46? Or maybe just the 46 in general? Pretty please?

    Hi yall

    Eh, thats part of small forums, especially ones where you've got convoluted topics like prepping But hey, I'm here!
  6. Funny, one chicken (not sure which) has graced us with eggs. Small, but they're eggs. Weather, temp, etc all can determine if a hen will lay. Once they start, they tend to keep going (for a while), but it took ours a long time to start, even then, i think only one hen is laying

    2500, no issues. I do wany to show a few more things about the gun. It has a recessed crown, so any damage done is less likely to effect accuracy Slide stop is thicker than on previous gens, and engages the slide on both sides. Texture is the same as gen 4 guns, but thanks to the absence of the finger grooves, it feels like I'm able to get a much better hold of the gun The wire and leaf spring are gone. Everything is a coil spring. Coil springs are much more durable The nPVD coating is amazing. That is all. If you want, you can run a gen 4 slide on the 19x, and vice versa, all you need to do is swap the end plates. All the controlls on both guns work, thought the trigger on the 19x framed gun wont be as nice, and the slide will rquire a bit of wiggling to slide on

    Mossberg 590A1

    So i shot the A1 some more yesterday, all 2 3/4 inch, no magnum stuff. Shot some dupleks and federal tru ball low recoil, plus some #1 buck flite control, and some birdshot. Cycled the safey probably a hundred times since then, hopefully it holds up.
  9. Didn't do a garden, but do have chickens. No eggs. None. Zip, zilch, zero.

  11. Current EDC G19X in an alien gear, kershaw leek, wallet, phone spare 19 round mag. I still carry a G2X, but its AWOL at the moment I also have this with me on road trips Vertx gamut (i love this bag) Front pocket has 2 33 round mags Pocket above it has a sof-t wide TQ Main pocket flap has a Kershaw leek, tube of TW-25b, and a 19 round mag, foam earplugs, a boo boo kit, and a rite in the rain notepad Cavity has an IFAK set up exactly like the one on my battle belt, but with an extra TQ stufffed in there, an otis 9mm cleaning kit, glock knife, that glock arm brace thing, and a spare change of clothes. I often keep my nikon d3400 in here, along with a 3l camelbak. I'll also usually throw in my nintendo switch. Its charging now, so no pics. Other pocket holds a spare nikon battery and charger, and and SD card case, and a TLR-1hl Side pockes have a 17 round mag each. The right one also has some medical shears, cords for electonics, and 3 fisher space pens. Left one has a black sharpie and a power core There are some elastic pockets on the outside of the side pockets. The right one has a USB solar charger, the left one has a few MRE matchbooks, and a lot of MRE toilet paper. I have a streamlight sidewinder on the right strap It has a lot of ammo with it, mainly because I've ran into some really cool ranges on road trips. The armbrace thing is because sometimes, that nice hotel doesn't turn out to be so nice, so it's nice to get a bit more performance out of my carry gun.

    2k report Hit 2k today. Gun runs. And runs, and runs. Not a single instance of BTF or eratic ejection. The gun passes the test where you shoot a round with no mag in the gun Finish holds up well, though i haven't done that many draws with it yet. Its not as slick as the gen 4 finish, which is nice.the barrel has lost a bit more of its finish compared to my gen 4 G19, but it isn't going to rust due to the type of finish it has. Zero complaints. The trigger isn't as nice as the PPQ, but the glock is much simpler, and more consistent over high round counts without cleaning. Plus i can make stupid things like this now

    Put 920 rounds though it today I mixed up a few hundred rounds of speer frangible, winchester forged, Wolf wpa, 124gr hst and it ate everthing Target was 25 yards out, shot with 147gr speer gold dot

    Its worth trying the 19x, its a G17 frame on a G19 slide, so the gun handles better thanks to the shorter barrel and longer grip. No finger grooves, aggressive texture on the grip, and a really nice barrel help a lot. Size wise, this is in the same relm as the VP9/P30/PPQ, but you get 17 rounds in a standard mag. This is IMHO the pinnacle of glocks. I'm normally not a fan of commander style guns, but the x might just convince me

    Brown is the new black Basic overview 19 length slide and barrel, 17 length grip 3 mags, 1 17 round mag, and 2 19 round mags No finger grooves, ambi slide release, marksman barrel, nPVD slide, tan frame, glock tritium 3 dot night sights Pretty much a gen 4.5. Only shot 17 rounds, but ran fine for that. Will update this as i go
