    I don’t think you have to worry about the country dividing. The most likely senerio is we kick the shit out of those areas and when the dust settles they emerge from their basements with a whole new level of I better shut the hell up. You have all heard the sentiment growing. A very large percentage of their supporters won’t fight for themselves let alone a nation or idea. We are the working class, we are the farmers, we are law enforcement, we are the military, we are the gun owners... They are the pansies, the felons, the lazy, the dependents...

    With the pandemic raging, I wanted to take a minute to tell all my bros on S-12 to hang in there and don't let the fake news get you down. We'll get this licked. Stay safe.

    One thing this has, I hope, shown this country is that you can't depend on a hostile communist regime for many of the essential items a country needs to thrive and survive. China is not our friend and the faster we divest ourselves from dependence on them the better. Praying for all here and our country.

    I'm not sure if it will ever happen, but I have been wanting to move somewhere that I can shoot on site. This would have to happen in an area where ground water isn't an issue and in Open Rural zoning, which would generally be on the Northwest area in this county. I would dig a pond as deep as I could legally get away with and off of that pond I would dig at least one lane or a loop above the clay layer or at least above where I might expect maximum water level to be during the wet season. Dirt from the pond and lane or loop would be used to hide the lanes (blend from existing grade to top of berms) at the same time as creating a more generous berm by the lane being down below existing grade. I would like to not be able to see the lanes at all from the home, but at least be able to fire down one of the lanes from inside of my shop. That's kind of the point, open the door of the shop, wheel a custom shooting bench to the door, and fire from the comfort of shade and AC or go down to the lane and fire. All of my steel targets are on stands and angled down. The target design and having the actual shooting area below surrounding grade should eliminate ricochet. As far as landscaping goes, I would let everything grow wild except immediately around the house and shop, and a line from the shop to the target area. I'm not a fan of creating a lot of landscaping to maintain.

    For the record, PA (like NY and a few others) is NOT a "Blue" state. It's a Red state that has to suffer through all the crap forced upon them by the Blue hordes in a few big cities in that state. I know many people from NY who would be ecstatic if they could just wall off everything east of I-295 so they could live a good life in the real world. Everyone I grew up with in PA, just east of Pittsburgh, is most definitely Republican.

    What’s wrong with Chicago?...It is run by Democrats. Period. Show me one thing, anything that they touch that does not turn to complete crap. We have liberals moving into AL by the droves from the craphole cities they just left saying it is too expensive to live there and there is no opportunity. Out of the other side of their mouth they complain about why AL hasn’t banned plastic bags and ‘Vote Blue in 2020’ It has to be a mental disease! They can in no way make the connection that the very party and policies they vote for turns their community, city, and state into the autocratic high tax spawn of hell, they want to leave. NY just killed a bill to help members of Gold star families go to college, while just a week earlier they set aside millions to help Illegal aliens go to college? People actually defend killing a baby at term citing “choice”? It would seem that this country is marching straight toward Concord (Version 2019), and I would hate to be one of these American hating politicians if that happens. Regardless, at some point soon accountability has to come. Apologies....Rant over! Sincerely, Pissed in Alabama

    I think we've had quite enough of Chinese curses for awhile. All counrties affected by this escaped Chinese bioweapon known as Covid 19 need to tally up the total cost of this pandemic as close as they can and subtract it from any loans they have with China, as well as use it pay off any money owed to them for goods and/or services, then bill them for the balance, payable immediately.

    Still able to get filters for my mask around here. I'm running a P100 rated for acid vapor. Entertainment business is tits-up. Snagged the last 3 boxes of auto match, and the buckshot and AR/AK are gone. Glad I put up 4500 in 5.56 strippers when I did. AK's and S-12's are on hot standby. Repacked the freezer while everyone was fighting over toilet paper and bottled water. Won't be too bad if this goes six months, but will need resupply if it goes longer. Don't want to hit the bunker if I can help it. Most of the stocks are holding pretty good as they're in foods and paper, so we have money. Mom is so glad I'm at home with her right now! She'd be real scared if she was alone.

    I don't know what to say. Really. All these people hoarding should have their asses kicked. Literally. This shit is just unreal. Yes, China should be held accountable for this shit. Just as with the other shit sandwich viruses that came from them. But they will not. China's grasp is far too powerful. Now, as for the US, we CAN come away from this with our economic heads out of our asses IF we learn to start cutting reliance on them. We shall see. But I believe to many Politicians as well as Business's have deep pockets with them. AND I hope the media gets it in their ass for all of these maniacal and relentless BS reporting they are doing. Stay safe, stay smart and this too shall pass.

    Well we are back home in FL and we came home with a cooler full of pheasants. This is one of the best years we have had. Carlos our 14 year old champion black lab and 2 time cancer survivor went out just weeks after cancer surgery" demanded to go "and even though he had a hard time keeping up he still retrieved a few birds. My big brother would not have it any other way. Our dogs did well Manny, Jet and Carlos what a team. After Thanksgiving we went to Nebraska and then through the blue mountains on our way to Charleston Brought back a few guns to work on for next year . Had a great time. The wife said it was the best time we have ever had.

    And the right grade of steel, and the ability to precisely heat treat. ARs are easy to make because all the pressure bearing components are non serialized in USA. Those are the hard bits to make safely at home. Europe doesn't care about receivers for that reason, they care about barrels, bolts, trunions, etc. Hence serials on those parts in EU guns. Import AKs tend to have serials on both parts as a compromise to the US system. The S12 and derrivatives got approved using the system from Europe, without any thought towards making them easy to clone or remake. There's no money in that for the manufacturer, and no surplus market, since it was never a mass issued gun to turn into parts kits. Further, all the pockets in an 80% Ar receiver are vertical plunge operations. Everything tricky has already been done. An AK trunion has a lot of complex geometry that isn't just going to happen with a drill press. It would be pretty hard to measure without custom jigs, let alone make. Part of why ARs are clever, is that he borrowed johnson's clever thinking about how to make easier to machine precise lugs, then made it in two pieces, so that it is a single broaching operation which can be cleaned up on a lathe, then joined to the barrel, then heat treated as a unit.

    3 generations of hunters which included my big brothers grandson, watched as the young man shot his first rooster on his first day. Grampa and all of us were real proud. He is 14 and a pro trap shooter but learned that he had to be a lot faster. Getting pheasant every day and I clean them fast and perfect. holding up well, snow tonight which means a great 2 more days before we leave for Nebraska. There is still grease in the bearings of this old car. You all have a great Thanksgiving I will.

    I know two who perished that day, one in the Pentagon, and one in the south tower. I know someone who should have been in a room that morning where everyone died, but as fate would have it, they overslept and missed the fatal meeting where friends and colleagues died, and had survivor's guilt for a very long time thereafter. A dear friend, I was best man at his wedding, saw American Airlines flight 77 streak over South Washington Blvd just a few hundred yards ahead of him and slam into the Pentagon, his shouts into his cell phone piercing the ears of another friend with whom he was speaking at that moment. Late that morning I ventured out of my office just blocks from the White House. Driving north out of DC I saw the standard three helicopter Presidential fleet flying their usual route over the Maryland suburbs toward Camp David. This time something was very was different. They were being orbited by an F-15. Never saw that before or since. We are just a few who shall never, ever, forget.

    I believe that the problem is the lack of home training. Most of these 'sjw' types (and almost all the shooters are convinced of their superior social justice superiority) have no home training. Many have been mostly raised by Socialistic Democratic teachers unions. All Public Employee Unions are BY DEFINITION an organization that is there to put the their will above the will of the People. The are net EDUCATED as much as INDOCTRINATED.

    Just my two cents worth: "Bvamp" mentions P.C. Well ... my theory is our society ... or the West in general .... is paying for the nutty ideas of the political left AND the emasculation of our society in which males are so often held in contempt now. It's like a form of racism is being aimed at guys for imaginary reasons which somehow become dogma anyway. As I recall, much of this began to gain steam during the first Clinton term with the imposition and mainstreaming of P.C. which itself is rooted in communistic ideology. The left always tries to give something a nicer name. Add to this how American churches (whether liberal or conservative) tend to have feminine cultures (even if there is a male pastor) that cater to women, and the left's appeal to maternal instinct, and it's a recipe for problems. I'd like to share how I am tired of "Progressive Auto Insurance " commercials that feature beta-male guys, and moments like how one of the last Star Wars movies featured Laura Dern as some "I know better than you" character. The last Star Wars films are the result of beta-males and women being in charge. Sad ... really sad what they did. I am not an Alpha-male/Special Operations kind of guy. However, I (and thousands of other men) am tired of society-wide themes of contempt, criticism, invalidation, marginalization, and suspicion of men - especially white men. I am convinced we are seeing the liberal left do to our society what my emotionally abusive mother did to me. The only difference is scale. A demand for power rooted in insecurity is at issue. Basically, the left is projecting its collective insecurity onto society. Men are the target and being forced to pay for the left's self-loathing. As for this forum's audience, I am deeply concerned by the thought that today's society could not win W.W.II like the Greatest Generation did. We had a more masculine/traditional society then. It wasn't perfect, but it had the foundation that was needed to win a two-front war. This trend of praising & uplifting all things feminine, producing beta-males, and stigmatizing all things masculine must stop. The political left is much like a woman, and its chronic, narcissistic need for affirmation is costing our country dearly. Basically, President Trump is hated by the left because he is masculine and isn't going to tolerate the left's crap. He's a "bump" in the road of emasculating our country. I am not against women achieving things and having power like Margaret Thatcher because she was cognitively masculine. I am against women achieving things and having power like Billary or A.O.C. because are they narcissistic and project their issues onto the rest of the whole country. It boils down to those in society who are "feminine" against those who are "masculine." I'm afraid (and I admit this is a fear of mine) that things will reach a point where eventually those on the conservative right are going to have to "bitch slap" the left one day in order to restore normalcy. How that will happen is up to speculation. I've noticed a tendency in the left/women to let power go to their heads. Enough is enough. Meanwhile ... more and more guys are getting robbed of any affirmation they deserve & need as males because of the left's twisting of society and marginalization of men. We must start producing real men again (not just sources of paychecks) or else society will fall. And that is the plan: bring down the west by emasculating society. So ... I blame the political left's paradigms and programs for a lot of these shootings because of what they're doing to boys & men in our society. It's like a dysfunctional family where mommy demands power no matter how much it hurts her son because her antics squelches his growth. The democrats keep demanding more & more power. Something's gotta give. Unfortunately, it did break this weekend in the minds of two guys. I'm not excusing their actions, but the liberal left needs to take a collective look in the mirror. I hope this makes sense.

    i am going on the record. where i am from in NY, we were the third largest per capita gun ownership county in the entire USA. then the handgun permit renewal thing happened, that was part of the downfall, then the taxes, then more gun laws that dont work, we left.; wherei grew up and was taught my ways, it wasnt 2 or 3 or 4. it was 20 30 40 that you even talk about. at the time i decided to leave ny, i think dutchess county ny was beat by somewhere in cali, and somewhere in texas, fourth place was penn somewhere. i love my country. i am not giving up my basic beliefs for some political crap or some soccer mom up the street that a i never met. so i came to florida

    Depends what your looking for. If I can't do it, or I think I'll be too expensive I'll tell you.. I might have a suggestion for another shop or two depending on what the part is. I gave a price to a company back five months ago, and I felt like I was too high at first, but it was what I could do.. Well last week they came back and gave the green light for production, along with asking for quotes on three other parts.. So apparently I'm the cheapest option around for those parts... Surprised me. Asking is pretty cheap (free).. Just try to have a drawing in my hands so I know what I'm looking at, a pencil drawing on printer paper is OK it just needs to have dimensions on it otherwise my brother gets really pissy.. And if I know what price point your going for I can help cut costs or increase quality depending on the goal.

    I believe that the closer we get to the 2020 election we will see civil unrest in this country on a scale not seen since the 1960's. The Red/Blue separation comes down to one simple question: Do you support the United States Constitution, Bill of Rights and Rule of Law or don't you? We live in interesting times. Keep your powder dry boys.

    To Ronin38: Thank you Sir for the info. about Pennsylvania and New York. It is encouraging to know what you wrote. Therefore, I hope the cars I've seen with plates from PA and NY are being driven by "Red" folks. Please understand how down in the southern states we tend to generalize the northeast as being "blue" country. I have relatives in Connecticut and they're all "blue" folks. Anyway ... regarding my original post that begins this thread, I'm just worried how the left seems to be "balkanizing" our country. It wouldn't surprise me if the map turns into a "blue" left coast, a "blue" northeast, and a big "red" region in the middle that are three separate countries one day. The folks in Chicago seem to be at the tip of the spear for all of this. I hope folks in PA keep making long rifles!!!

    I hear you Spacehog. Where I live, we've had a ton of folks move from California, Illinois, NY, and Pennsylvania. "Original" folks are really concerned about it. I just saw a PA license plate today. The fear is they'll bring their blue state liberal politics with them. In the meantime, they're the cause of house prices going skyhigh compared to what they used to be. I know several teachers in my area and they say they are having more & more parents confront them about stuff which boils down to the parents' egos - not anything about their child. These are parents from blue states. The concept of making "little Johnny" work for anything or be held accountable for bad behavior gets spun into some sort of offense committed by the teacher. Man ... if I even back talked a little bit I'd get sent to the principal's office and then get more heat from my parents at home. (Oh ... sorry ... I said "parents" instead of parent)

    Yep, in NY the blues took 17 out of 62 Counties in the 2016 Presidential election, yet we remain blue. Not only do those 17 counties have the most Democrats, some of them have more of a population than most of the red counties combined. http://alloveralbany.com/archive/2016/11/09/new-york-state-presidential-election-2016-county-r It's even worse for the Gubernatorial Election.

    I would ponder what you are going to use the gun for. If it is for range shooting dump the 10 round mag Idea . You need to put the time into talking to people who shoot custom guns , most will go out of their way to share what works and what does not. Bull barrels are nice but some lighter barrels will shoot as good , as the barrel is only one part of perfection. I do not shoot heavy barrels . I have become a big fan of 5R rifling in the 308 , De-Resonator , 3lb triggers and barrel T-stat. Also have mixed feelings about bedding a poly stock ( not sure the effort is worth it) but I just shoot targets and your mileage may vary. Good Luck and have a great one I will be pulling some 308 bullets this afternoon with a nice cup of coffee maybe two

    I think I may have a new favorite. This was a customer gun. It is basically what evl grade was meant to be, minus the AK100 stock. The gun just looks clean and serious. No BS anywhere, what you need on a SBS and nothing that you don't. There is a ton of detail work on this thing.

    The gas block metal is not too hard and is easy to file. Be patient and take your time. I alternated between holding the gas block and moving the file, and holding the file and moving the gas block. After the corners were formed, I switched to a flat file. I do not recommend using a rotary tool or Dremel. When you are done, the hole in the gas block should look something like this. Make sure both the gas tube and barrel bores are free from any rough edges. IMPORTANT! Ensure you remove any/all metal shaving and any other contaminants from the gas block before attempting reassembly. CONT'D
