    I couldn't afford to feed a 5.7, but I do some case modifications to .22 rimfire magnums to heat them up a bit for pennies a round.

    Dedicated Glock Mag lowers.

    The top one is a 4" barrel, the bottom I think a 10" barrel. I already swapped that 4" barrel for a 5.5" barrel with an integrated feed ramps for reliability. Works so well, I've got another one coming to replace the 10" barrelled one. Both will be suppressed for a total length around 13" of barrel/suppressor. I'm reloading 147gr bullets and keeping them subsonic.

    Might want a Steyr AUG bullpup instead. 5.56x45 NATO. In its selective fire configuration, you can also get it chambered in 9mm Parabellum.

    Interesting, care to share your secret?

    I'd like to get some range time with a .17 WSM.

    Not on a public forum, but happy to in person. It involves shortened cases, powder change and bullet swap out in standard primed cases. I use it in a strong rifle action. Not safe in weaker actions. I call it my .22 WSM

    It requires the use of a mix of reloading dies intended for other calibres.

    .17 WSM is on my list to do some shooting with as well. Brother-in-law has one, so maybe if I take a holiday......



    221 fireball is on my most wanted list.

    For some of us it's a technical fascination. Every mechanical engineer I've ever known was interested in how to pick locks during their college years.

    I'm only interested in interesting guns, design or quality.

    That's the only good argument I've seen against the Ithaca/Browning bottom ejection pumps.

    I have no fantasies about shooting anyone. I really hope that I can exit this life without ever having done so. That said...

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Last time I called the police for a vehicle theft in progress, they showed up 90 minutes later.

    I’d appreciate it if you stayed out of my ‘dainties’ drawer

    The 1911 I posted has never been fired. It was a group buy to commemorate at special time.

    I can’t recall a time I fired an AR-15, or M16, that wasn’t at a gun range.

    Never carried a gun for self-protection from humans. (except in a war zone).

    I’m fairly benign.

    And there you go. Very manageable, not much more you need than that.
    In the US this perverted idea of “blood and soil” over “constitutional principles” is the most radical and anti-democratic and anti-Conservative idea I have heard in my lifetime.

    Aim better. I practice spot targeting on a target with 12 3" targets on it. Call it and shoot. Plate only covers so much. Plus, with a 9mm, the followup is so much faster and more accurate.

    Can anyone tell the difference between a bump stock and a fast finger on a semi-auto? The neighbor was blasting away furiously a couple dozen rounds that sounded awfully fast. But yeah, like the folks from down under said the gun fetishism is kind of indicative of skewed values.

    If you thought bump stocks were stupid (as do I), you'll love binary triggers.

    What is a Binary Trigger?Binary triggers are semiautomatic triggers that feature two modes of firing, semiautomatic and binary. The semiautomatic setting in a binary trigger is just like any other semiautomatic trigger. When someone shoots a firearm in semiautomatic, a single round fires for each pull of the trigger.
    The secondary mode in a binary trigger is the binary setting. In binary mode, one round fires when the shooter pulls the trigger and another round fires when the trigger is released. If you aren’t interested in shooting binary that day but have a binary trigger, there’s no need to worry. You can simply move the selector to semiautomatic mode and avoid binary altogether.

    Center of mass is the defacto training mantra for a reason. Targets don't move around as they rush towards you.

    The followup with a 5.7mm is every bit as fast, and there are 19 of them, 20 if you keep one chambered.

    When it comes to .223/5.56 and 5.7mm are both effective for the same reasons. Small calibers and high velocities.

    Anyway. . .
    I'm not a fan of using guns for anything other than shooting at a meal or a non-living target, so I'm out of this as far as anything related to 'self-defense' goes. In hindsight I shouldn't have posted in the first place.

    Yes I do, but I want one capable of sewing sails and leather goods.

    Typewriters! For mechanical fascination, all, from the earliest mechanicals to the last Selectrics. For style, art deco ones from the '30s, and modern styled ones from the '60s.

    When typewriter and sewing machine makers had to retool to make pistols and rifles in WWII, it was child's play, an order of magnitude less complex and comparable precision. Singer and Remington Rand made 1911A1 pistols, Underwood made M1 Carbines, if I recall correctly(?)
