  1. That's the best way there. A cheater's way would be to wire a good lead off the positive power point into a heavy relay controlled by ignition switched power. It would only run when the ignition was on.
  2. I got one, I like it. I put a review up in another thread.
  3. So I ordered one of the slide fire stocks last Monday, and had it by the weekend from military guns or whatever the vendor is. Cost me some, but, for what it is, I consider it well made. I don't have any videos, as I went by myself and have no tripod. I will take some friends in a couple weeks and try to get video. Installation was pretty easy, remove the pistol grip and replace with their guide block which guides the stock in front and holds your safety spring down like the original. Then, insert stock on buffer tube, done. The stock runs two ways, locked and unlocked. Locked will lock it to full out position, and it works like a normal stock does. This caused no issue for me, but someone that uses a m4 stock not fully extended might not like it. Unlocked is where the fun is. You grab the pistol grip, pull tight into your shoulder, and put your trigger finger on a rest (this is what the difference is when they ask right or left handed) that is across the trigger from your hand. Thus, your trigger finger front joint is in front of the trigger. You then grab the stock and slide the forearm (and the rest of the gun) forward. This causes the trigger to impact the plane of your taut finger, and go off. The recoil pushes the gun back into the stock, it cycles, resets trigger, and your forearm pushing the gun forward still makes it go off again (and again...as long as you have ammo or keep forward pressure.) Enough theory. My observations: 1. Full auto simulated fire is not hard to keep on target for a decent sized guy. No muzzle rise. 2. When starting, do it with ONE ROUND in the mag. Then do TWO. Then maybe THREE. It was hard till I figured the nuances of gripping it to only keep it to one shot. Most of the time I was shooting doubles. This is the most important thing I can say: No full mag boogie woogie till you learned it PLEASE. I only shot about 30 shots, and had mostly figured out single bump fire by then, but, as one who had NOT done it before, I was glad I limited my first few mag loads to twos and threes. 3. The barrel will get HOT. Very Fast. If you love your gun, pay attention to that and let it cool. 4. I was hitting a target freehand at 50 yards with 3 shots bursts. I was getting a couple inch groups from a rest with the same bursts. It works fine shooting from a bag rest, assuming you support the forearm with your hand and sit your hand on the sandbags, like I do. 5. It is impossible to not grin like an idiot and feel like you just broke the law when you bust a long burst off on a public range. Mad fun. 6. While I see no serious use for this other than for fun, it is quite a lot of fun, and I am glad I bought it. On a more somber note, I was banging some UMC green and white box .45 acp ball through a Kimber I bought, and a round would not go in the mag. I flipped the round over, and found that the casing had been ripped and folded over when the bullet was loaded, and I could the base of the bullet through a crack. I saved the round, collected all the brass, and will be on the horn with Remington soon about their QC. I don't particularly need compensation, though I won't turn down free ammo, but I want to let them know so they can improve QC. Message on that one: inspect EVERY round when you load it.
  4. I am glad they do distances. I had read it was all dinking with 22s at 25 yards, which, while respectable, is not the same thing as shooting at range.

    Oh, please. It's not the 17 post count, it's that you were an asshole. "YOU should start by minding your own business,who the HELL are you to tell me what to do with my rifle,I don't recall you paying for it or asking your opinion about what I should do with it. Personally I could care less about historical value I buy guns to shoot not sell later for monetary gain or to just look at as some wall hanger. " Sound familiar? I'm through on this one.

    Plus, he's a 17 post troll. I've found that people who are, shall we say, more blue collar and lower class, have less value for originality and preservation. This goes from guns, to classic cars, to homes, to really anything. This is where the term Bubba'ed Up comes from, because, it also seems that, the more people want to modify stuff, the less capability they actually possess to do so well. Unfortunately, the Bubba'ing affects the entire community, because these types tend to live paycheck to paycheck and not save money. Then, when times get hard, they have to sell their toys, and the fucked-up gun that was once a good historical piece won't sell, because no one wants their hacked up shit. You can't buy taste. Many people look at an old war gun and think, hey, I can afford this, then I can put rails on it and be TACTICAL, when it's like putting a 5000 dollar sound system in an 86 Taurus. People forget that guns will out-live them, and there's a custodial responsibility that MOST people can perceive to not fuck them up for the future generations. I guess we need a picture of Mosin with a Get That Shit Off M44 caption like we have for the AK with Kalashnikov. Edit: The refinishing done by the OP is not bubba'ing, and looks awesome, and his gun needed it.
  7. Laid. Proselytizing is more effective when one uses correct grammar. Christ was made man, for a reason. The anti-christ will not be a man, for there is no reason to be one. One can't nail an angel or Satan, I imagine this anti-christ to be the same. However, if one called down the thunder, literally, perhaps the Lord might use an automatic weapon for His vengeance.
  8. An assault rifle is a fully automatic carbine.
  9. Dude, you shoot skeet with a red dot and people will point and laugh.
  10. Ammo should work for a hundred years. I still shoot paper shotshells at times.
  11. Hell man, a ten year old car is just getting started. I've got some 40 year old cars.
  12. Your damn right. I'm sitting on a tree stand near a windmill to pump some cattle troughs, watching the deer, a little breeze and CREEEEAK BAN BANG BANG, all the deer gtfoed.
  13. Your logic is flawed. People won't be running around and shooting from the tops of buildings and from tanks at people. There is a giant divide between video games and reality, and the only people who don't realize that are the non-gamers. In fact, do me a favor and don't even suggest that anything from video games makes it into reality because all we fucking need is more stupid ratings laws. Please forgive me. I abase myself at the feet of the All-knowing Grand Kliegl. All is now right with the world. Rise, my son. Just kidding, you don't need to kowtow. I agree that bad habits can be learned from many things. Interesting enough, Kliegl is an Austrian name, the Klan title is kleagle or something like that. I guess my thing is, I've been shooting since I was six, and playing first person shooters since they came out in the early 90s. My only connection is that I like buying some of the guns I use in the games.
