  1. If Buckshot Roberts was around modern day: (and upgraded to the Saiga 12)


    (As he get's out of the truck..........)





    Dick: We've got a warrant for you, old man.


    Buckshot Roberts: I ain't got no business with that war no more, peckerhead son of a bitch. I'm on my own. I've come to pick up the 150 dollars Sheriff Brady has put out for the kid. The rest of you are only worth about 110, but I'll take it.


    Doc: What a sweet disposition.


    Buckshot Roberts: All right, let's dance

  2. With "Trucks"...


    I used to live in Reno (and plenty of trucks around). I saw one guy out at the pyramid range that had tool boxes that went along the side of the bed just along the top but went into the bed area no further than the wheel wells). It was the stainless steel type (pattern like rock guard) and sat low over all (not like a "tool truck" at all...probably 3 or 4 inches above the bed liner for the lid). Just basic utility bins in appearance.


    The setup was similar like you would for a trunk lid. On one side he had various military firearms with pistols on the lid, and on the other one he had what appeared to be a custom made crate for like 5 SKS rifles neatly in a row (I think it was stacked like a chest and there were 10)

    lol heck, he could've drove wherever and equiped a squad quite well -noooo probs.


    The center storage area *(behind cab that opens from left and right side of truck) was sectioned and it held all the ammo....thus meeting the separate storage laws (he traveled a lot...probably other states). He told me the main bed area underneath the bins would be where he stored the tents/gear or whatever. Plenty of room for all things. He called it his "bug out truck" (yeah no kiddin).





    Was really cool to see. Well, it'll probably give Cobra a few more ideas.





    just found this too.... interesting (a truck vault).






  3. Notice that he never takes his eyes off the target (firing from his strong side and "serious").

    It's very important when you're doing the high or low carry, aiming with body movements.


    +1 on the warsaw length :)



    I train with my friend (prior Russian military) and we compare techniques all the time.

    If you ever get a chance to really learn the AK moves first hand, don't pass it up. It's a real advantage to have the skills to go with the weapon type.



    Personally, I like hand to hand with the AK. It's rather devastating and no frills.

  4. Pray tell, what other "spare parts" do you have.


    Probably enough to improve several 3rd world countries :ph34r:





    Great to hear Tony :) . Thanks for the input.





  5. Not sure if the actual springs exist for those who lose/break that spring. I was looking around at various parts and saw this:


    A spring safety for a CZ52




    No I don't need a spring. I was just thinking that it might be useful for someone.

    Of course, you'd have to bend the angle the other direction to clip over the BHO bar. But it might work for someone wanting to add a BHO.



    Well, just thought to toss that out there.




  6. Well, to be technical, one reason why some look for bayonet lugs: The Hague Convention.

    (aside from the cool factor, its an important topic to anyone that would say they are a "unit" in a militia...or paramilitary etc).



    Essentially, to be considered a combat unit and thus wanting to be protected under the other treaties (things like geneva conventions etc), you need to have the gear that is agreed upon. Soldiers wear uniforms etc. Weapons must have certain characteristics as well.


    Now, I know how all that sounds, but look at it like this. ...you also have to consider the repercussions when some things are banned. Its a greater loss when you look at the complete picture.


    Using an outlandish example (just go with me on this...) let's say the U.S. got invaded some day, OR lets say things degrade into a civil war or such. I know I know...not happening in our lifetime. We all know many in the U.S. are very well armed. Quite a number are in militias as well. But yeah, some people would be captured right? "Who" would be considered a unit and thus should be recognized and/or protected? And who would be considered belligerent.

    Suffice to say, I'd be using one that has a bayonet lug or built-in.


    Some wonder WHY they don't have those on AK's now. Evil black weapons and YOU don't need one for sporting purposes is a common response. There were many discussions about this years ago from militia members I've known. Just something I remembered. At the time I dismissed it as just conspiracy theories....but I looked into it, and they had a valid point. A very valid point.


    All bans etc tie and build upon each other. Just depends on the scenario presented and what dots you connect. In the event of an approaching enemy...you could be a war criminal or a belligerent depending what you used and how you used it. And face the penalties as well.



    I'll have to find a good article about the Hague Convention debate and bayonet lug bans. Would take some time though.


    An example of shotguns with bayonet lugs.





    Don't grill me over it. It's just my loose example/technical understanding of one reason as it was described to me once. Keep an open mind.

    All I'm "just saying" is sometimes its good to buy that AK (or any military rifle type really) with the lug compared to one that doesn't have one.



    Well, its food for thought.



  7. I pre-ordered 5 of them on the 5/26 (when it said by mid-April).


    Just checked site (browsing for other things): "We should have ready to ship the by mid-May".




    Disconcerting that it changed since I placed the order. Either they're doing it in "batches", or they should add "subject to change" to the item.

    Oh well. Not a huge deal really. Its not like I've not waited for things before.


    Fun by summer time is what counts. :killer:



  8. Bought a couple of the Tromix black T's. Shot a the range today making all sorts of noise as usual. Sometimes I wear the bump in the night=bump back shirt....sometimes the Zombie one. Its not uncommon to have all sorts of gawking (indoor range) and a few interruptions.


    "Lead Delivery Systems" is a great trademark/slogan etc. It truly says it all in a simple no excuse statement while shooting.

    Of course dumping a half dozen AGP mags of buck and then slugs, the blast from the shark brake, and the target flapping like a flag (even at the 25 line) which their 9's only dream of...yeah, it left little to the imagination during their OMG discussions.


    I like the shirts. Honestly, its the 1st time nobody asked "what is that thing?"... The shirt said it all for me while I was shooting.

    Instead, I got comments like "I'm on his side"...or..."you sure know how to have fun -you even made my day".

    I even got a "can I try the Tromix?". I asked if they've ever fired one and they said they've never even seen anything like it before today.

    That's what I'm talking about~!




    Nice Tromix shotgun. Nice shirts. Life is good.





    PS: That break-in lube kicks ass~!

  9. Somehow I think at tailgate parties Jeaux would have a tool box right near the gate. Nothing too conspicous of course.

    Given his passion for the shorties..... make sure you brought the beer instead of the pom pom gag gift idea.
