  1. considering that I had 20 minutes to submit the photo, I think my tossing of everthing on the floor turned out better than it could have! And yes, I'm asking for votes. I want to win 3 free suppressors. Who wouldn't? There are a lot of great photos in the contest - if I had known about this sooner, I would have gotten everything together and taken it out on my boat, anchored in some super scenic bay with mountains and a morning fog, then placed everything on the back deck in a well thought out and organized way. And had a hottie in a bikini! LOL In reality, I did my weekly check of my spam f
  2. I need your help... my photo is in the SilencerCo 'Living in the Red' contest, and I need your vote! I'm a longshot, the underdog, the fat kid to be picked last! SilencerCo has a contest, for 'bugout bags and readiness'. I put mine in, with a few 'fun' additions (and subtractions), and lo and behold my photo was one of around 80 to be picked. Now it's up to Internet voting to pick the winner(s). Help me win!!! Here is the link: http://www.silencerco.com/living-in-the-red/?mc_cid=14d9c7497e&mc_eid=54fea7193e And there is no good way to tell you which photo is mine - their position changes
  3. saw some in a small store where I go fishing... $89 a brick! Guy told me it was 'because they are closing the last US lead smelter...' I calmly walked out...
  4. I have the Shooting Sight trigger and it is freaking awesome.
  5. Dumbass... it was pretty obvious he saw it at a distance and still advanced on the moose. I ride a lot, and have damn near ran over/into moose on a few occasion coming around a blind corner. They usually run when you get too close if you are at speed... I wonder if he had just kept running, would it have ended differently. But, he stopped, got it's attention then advanced. Textbook on what NOT to do... in 40+ years up here, never had to shoot a moose I did not want in my freezer (prefer caribou anyways...) Lots of posts on this all over the internet... and a LOT of people are slapping the
  6. technically not a picture but... I'm the first to shoot a few, then a guy I work with how has NEVER touched a shotgun is up. He's got a weird grip which we have since fixed... but he's the only one my S12 jams for (you can see it in his first shoot)
  7. I kicked the wife to the spare room and sleep with my Tromix S12... you will too soon enough. Seriously, the thing is awesome. If I could find another S12 locally I'd set up to do a S17 as well.
  8. Correct... and the Class III dealer does the submitting UNLESS it is a Form1 - I did my own Form1 and dealer did my Form4. Also... he told me today, that you can actually cancel a paper form4, get a refund started and re-file as eForm4. I do not think that is common knowledge,as my dealer said he ha dtalked to the NFA branch about that and they were not very happy with that but it was allowed.
  9. eForm is the way... 3 months from filing to approval for both an SBR and suppressor - both submitted 9/30/13 and both approved on 1/14/14 I have 2 form4's mailed in the same dates, and my dealer told me I can cacel them then re-file eForm form4's... not sure if I want to do that, but if they come back in 3 months I'll be 3-4 months ahead of the game.
  10. Got mine today - thanks, but I have to say that due to some health issues at home I have not been active in any way, shape, or form here, or anywhere regarding shooting. I need to apologize for that as I have really done nothing to help with the testing of these mags. Hell, have not opened my gunsafe in about 2 months. I'll have to catch up on the postings and see what I can do. Trust me... I have GOT to get to range to blow off some steam and de-stress. At least now I have a good reason to 'go play with my guns' as the wife calls it.
  11. yeah, any BCG should be good. I like to stay with the ones I know... Colt, BCM, so on. Really, as long as they are C158 bolts and properly staked gas keys I'm happy. That said, I have the stuff to stake my own so really it's just the material that concerns me. As far as the buffers, I like to go as heavy as my rifle will run reliably. Slows down the cycling, and reduces any problems... to a point. Too heavy an you induce more problems. I've switched all my AR's over to Vltor A5 systems, they seem to run so much better, smoother, and slightly slower cycling. I do headspace any rifle th
  12. screw it.... I'm paying the higher price for a case or two of XM855 tomorrow
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AR4WmfiPWI and this http://www.wtsp.com/video/default.aspx?bctid=2654049258001 Dude in the first vid was found 1/2 mile down the road, dead as hell, with his three kids in the car! (all ok) Cop was shot in the side but survived. Surprised no one in the lead car in the second vid was hit... lots of glass flying before they stopped. Could not pay me enough to be a cop... I can predict fire a WHOLE lot more than people.
  14. Full length? SBR? I just submitted my Form4 for a 7.62 Suppressor exactly for this reason. With the right setup, a suppressed .300AAC is no louder than a suppressed .22 - at least according to the Internet and YouTube
  15. did this awhile ago... but also just got my trust done and filed some Form4's to get in before the 90 days is up, just in case.
  16. love love love mine... great fun to shoot, accurate and reliable Using both the S&W mags and the Plinker Tactical 35rd.
  17. Prices here are still high ($475 for 1K PMC 5.56) but what I noticed was there were loads of the cases... more than 20 in one Walmart alone. American Eagle XM855 was $501and also about 10 cases. Not seen that amount in a long time. I'm sure it's gone by now, but encouraging to see it at least.
  18. Sorry for the lapse... life came crashing down around my head the last week or so. I haven't had much time to play, but should start having more this weekend. NetPackrat, I'd have no problem meeting up if we can find a time to do so. Altho I really doubt it's my S12.... I can re-create my issue without my S12 anywhere near the magazine. I'll see if I can do a quick video showing that, but I will say the more I use it the less it happens. So I really think my mag had a burr or other tight spot that caused this and it's wearing down/loosening up some.
  19. Naw, I'll keep monkeying with this one a little more. See if someone else with more skillz wants to join in... I'm realizing I'm not that handy with mods and such. Can't draw a straight line with a rulerand all... (I'll be embarrassed to show my feed lips work! LOL)
  20. well crap... I have been posting in the other thread... didn't pay attention to this one- sorry. Got back from the range just now. Did the feed lips, and *seems* to be better. Put the spring and follower from an Izzy 8rd mag in and it runs flawless. Tried with the spring and metal follower and seemed to work much better. Just trying other things to see what differences there are. Unfortunately, I had someone with me that needed watching, and the range was PACKED with people, so didn't get the time I really wanted to put a bunch of rounds downrange. I'm going to try hand cycling tonight
  21. Made the mod to the feed lips, but it does not help my situation. Look at the first pic I posted, the round stops advancing up before it even gets to the lips. Something is causing it to bind... I sanded the back area with no luck, and I can make it happen almost every time by pushing on the round as it advances up. I have a couple of the Izzy 8round mags, so I took one apart and used the spring in the metal mag and it helped quite a bit, but when I put the Izzy follower in it seems to work flawless. I looked in the mag and I do not see anything obvious that might be the problem, so I'm going
  22. Too effin funny. Saw this thread, was gonna reply thanks as I found them on Amazon with free shipping for the $6.99, and wife ordered me to the grocery for dinner stuff. As I was wandering the isles I found these exact same lights for $5.99! Picked up 2 for my safes. I am going to glue a couple of my rare earth magnets on the back as the included one is a tad weak.
  23. Also have shot one a buddy has, and LOVE it. very little muzzle rise - much MUCH better than my .308 (duh) and at least as good, if not better, than my .223. Like it so much I am putting one together myself from the ground up - already have 2k brass ready for reloading. Also read somewhere a number of 3gun people are going to it, since a mere scrape on a target will trigger a hit, vs a .223 that will not. But since I believe everything I read on the Intertubes, I have no reason to doubt that Oh... and mine will be a SBR, most likely in the 10" range.
  24. Thanks! that helps... curious to find out if that helps you. Good amount to start with tho.
