  1. Has anyone tried 8208 in 7.62X39? If so, do you have a pet load for a 123 grain SP? I've used the powder for .223 and 6PPC, and the results have been great.
  2. Come on, guys! This repost isn't "an abuse," nor is it a case of my "data being skewed." My post will not result in the Heston Estate coming under attack. And, my information was incorrect, not skewed. The whole point of the post was to share the very presence of such a fabulous collection of weapons outside the Smithsonian, and how much I'd love to wander around through it for a few hours. Who, or who not owned/owns it is of absolutely no moment! Nobama and Holder will own it all in a couple of years anyway.
  3. Unfortunately, our home-grown "enviro pirates" will highjack this opportunity, demand a complete environmental impact statement before proceeding to exploit this, and then tie it up in courts long enough for the cost to go up to $150/barrel. The bastards don't care; in fact, I'm beginning to think that these environerds are sleeping with the enemy; they may very well be part of the sleeping cells of anti-American population of the world. Think about it: what better way to keep us dependent on foreign oil than to hide behind the environmental issues associated with exploiting what we have underneath our feet and off our shores?
  4. BVAMP, The only suggestion I made was to eliminate the verbal garbage from Titles and Descriptions. That way, as a member, I don't have to poke through the "f' the hamburger," "f' the UPS," and "f'" everything else that doesn't please folks out there. Why not something like, "I HATE THESE BURGERS" and let everyone who wants to dig into the topic?
  5. I agree, Dogman. It's not only sad and pathetic, it's so hateful and incredibly profane that I can't even let my grand kids boot the forum up for me anymore! I mean, I'm an ex-submarine sailor for the USNavy, and we, in our worst moments, didn't talk like some of these folks do! I had requested some way to at least, in the title of the subject, eliminate or reduce the gutter gumming, but was told by some moderator that "that's just the way the Fight Club is." I just don't understand it. This is supposed to be a Saiga forum for folks to visit and exchange ideas about their weapons. How did it get to the state where it is today? Are there just no limits imposed?
  6. Let me see, now. Which cigar did William Jefferson Clinton (AKA: Presidential POS) use in his "meetings" with his favorite intern???? You'd probably have to smoke them right away or they would not stay lit. . .

  8. History of the World! I think..... For those that don't know about history ... Here is the condensed version: Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters and gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter. The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups: 1. Liberals 2. Conservatives Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed. Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement. Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement. Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided. Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass. Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat. Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living. Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing. Here ends today's lesson in world history: It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it. A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to tick them off. And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.
  9. I went to the San Antonio Gun Show Saturday, and it was the same as the other posters observed: a madhouse! Took me 20 minutes of standing in line just to get in the place. It opened at 9:00am and by 10:15 you had to walk sideways to get down the aisles. People with 2 wheel dollies pulling cases of ammo through the crowds and out to their vehicles, and people standing in line to fill out their Form 4473's at any table that sold semiauto weapons. Crazy!
  10. Thanks, Bob! All mine have been sold, destroyed and/or were lost when my boat went down a couple of weeks ago. I just wondered what the statute of limitations was for dealer retention of the 4473's. Seems like the dealers would be a really good place for the gun banners to begin their search. Mike
  11. Correct. If you want to make an SBS, submit a form 1. If you are having your gun made into an SBS, it's form 4. I'm not sure what you are asking here, but a "gunshop owner" probably won't be able to do it. You need a class 2 NFA manufacturer. Skim over this: NFA FAQ Also, I want to mention that 10" is a little too short for gas port mods, and moving the gas block involves a lot more than pressing it on and off. Another question, somewhat off topic: How long to FFL dealers keep copies of the 4473's? How far back can Nobama's Gang look in a dealer's record? Mike
