    TPS M6 Survival Rifle - 22LR/410

    Looks good. I got to play with an original one awhile ago, in the original .22 hornet/.410. It was pretty cool. I honestly felt the m4 was a bit more practical, as far as i could tell with various "reproductions"

    Of happenings! I think im about at 8.5k. The finish is peeling from the slide stop

    Brad's BOB

    Looks pretty good. I'd ditch the p38 for a p51 or FRED. *Much* better to use. The only things I'd really add would be more water and an IFAK

    Well built, pockets are well thought out, doesn't scream gun bag, keeps things kinda dry. Got the gamut for like 60$, so i was already smitten

  6. Got a new piece of gear? A knife? Gun? Backpack? Thermo nuclear reactor? Post pics here! I'd like to start a new thread for everthing I get, but thats a lot of clutter, on many things I dont plan to review This is primarily a picture thread, but feel free to go into more detail if you want My recent things Service grade SA 1950 M1 Garand, courtesy of the CMP. The metal is nice and clean. Wood is USGI, but very dark. Its cleaned up a bit. ME and TE are both 2. S&W M&P 9mm. Got this in a trade. Seems ok, will make an ok truck gun. Came with an OWB holster and 3 mags

    north of 7k? Managed to get a malfunction. Was shooting a mix of winchester USA forged (aka garbage) and brass speer lawman. A round of winchester fired, but failed to extract, and the gun tried to feed another round. Not surprised it was with this ammo, but I'm impressed with how long it took to get a malf.
  8. I'm putting money towards an M1 garand from the CMP
  9. I prefer to just cut them up and fry them, nice and hot, though these are noticeably less hot than years past
  10. 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!
  13. 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
