  1. Wondering how this is all going to play out. It's been interesting having the media around the place, but I've got serious concerns about this mass of people. I live next to the rio grande river. I have border patrol and illegals running down my street daily. A few a day doesnt scare me, but 7000 in one hit scares the hell out of me. I hope President Trump follows through with sending down troops.
  2. Everything is calm. Like I said, the cartels apparently sent word down to the caravans that they are not welcomed in this area. I have noticed a lot less air patrol. I dont know what to make of that. Perhaps they are flying drones at higher altitudes. They are very hard to make out, but we have seen them in the past. There is also some kind of observation post that's been set up on federal property about 400 yards east of my house, but I've never seen anyone in it. Perhaps at night?
  3. I'm definitely not an expert on the subject, but just from watching them I'm convinced that many on the left suffer from some sort of mental illness. I go back to nature when observing them and I'm convinced that if left alone to fend for themeselves in a wild world pre 1800's situation they would die. They lack zero self dependance. And their ideas and ideals only exist in the insect world. But you cant apply those rules to humans because they don't work.
  4. Well this is pretty dramatic. Seems the caravan really wants to avoid south Texas and North East Mexico because they haved pissed off the cartels. The cartels are mad that due to them, now border enforcement on the areas they control has been stepped up. They are threatening the caravan. Wow...can't make this shit up.
  5. Remember, there is a HUGE difference between the armed forces of the United States and our various law enforcement agencies. Two very different roles.
  6. ETA is hard to tell. It's a 12 hr drive to Mexico City from here. But the group is struggling to find transportation because the MX gov is running major interference. In theory, if they were to allow them vehicle transportation they could be here tomorrow, but not all of them. If they keep walking, my guess is 10 to 20 miles max per day. Maybe first week of December?
  7. The drug runners are an X factor. This is a cartel del golfo and zeta border area. They control who crosses when and where. Those thinking that they can just arrive here and cross over don't realize that they will have to pay for safe crossing. Its an ugly world my friends.
  8. What do we need? Nothing really. But thank you for the offer. I spoke with the chief of police earlier and he seems thrilled that they will be laying down razor wire soon. Also, we feel much better knowing our troops are coming. I think we are gtg.
  9. Three to four waves formed now. But not armed. Still dangerous. They rioted at the Mexican border yesterday when the Mexicans closed the gates. They got violent and started throwing rocks at the federales. They returned the gesture with tear gas. It's strange to see the Mexicans actually doing their job on their southern border. You won't find any footage of that incident in our news though.
  10. Picked up more 223 and 9mm today. Also more water. Whats nuts was hearing my wife say "shouldnt you get more?". She doesnt want to mess around if the shtf.
  11. Thank you all for the support and prayers. Starting to notice a slight uptick of DPS activity. Also been hearing the BP airboats early in the morning with more frequency. I still have a few friends in different agencies who can't share their plans, but apparently a few contingencies are in the works. I just dont buy the whole walking to California story on the part of the organizers when its 1000 miles shorter trip this way. Anyway, been adding ammo to the inventory and topping off the truck every evening. Also been talking to others here with the same frame of mind. Many more people than I previously thought are getting ready.
  12. The wife and I did discuss evac last night, but both concluded that this is our home and property. Its the only thing we got. We have both worked too long and hard for this, and we are not leaving it behind because of fear.
  13. They are idiots. They are well aware of what they are voting for, but the repeated stupid excuse is usually something along the lines of "I don't like the way he looks". They all basically vote by the look of the cover, and not on substance.
  14. No evac plan, but plenty of self defense choices. I've got 4 AR platforms with optics ready to go at all times with 3 mags each. Thanks to the import ban the Saigas and Norincos don't get out much. If I do break out an AK it would probably be my bulgarian, yugos or my C39v2 (don't worry, it's got genuine Polish guts, so its gtg). But yeah, its an invasion force. Even the liberals at work are shitting their pants saying they don't want them here.
  15. I gave up looking a long time ago. I have since adopted the Ruger SR9 and Glock 9mm's as my sidearms of choice. When I find one cheap, I usually buy it.
  16. I still peek in at least a few times per week. But ever since the ban, I started collecting other AK's and of course whatever pawn shop Saiga's I can find.
  17. I was driving my newborn daughter to McAllen for a doctor's visit. First heard about something happening when I parked the car and noticed people freaking out I walked into the building and saw the 2nd plane hit live.
  18. Undecided. But glad it's back up.
  19. I check in daily, but don't post unless I have something to share.

    New CA C39V2 milled receiver

    Nice rifle. I picked up a similar rifle at a pawn shop in vg condition. Out of paranoia, I decided to upgrade the bolt on mine after acquiring a set of headspace gauges. Mine would not close on "go". While some think thats great, at least it closes on a live round, I wasnt thrilled about it. Too tight a headspace can lead to an overpressure condition, which can lead to other issues. I could be wrong, but that may be the reason why so many people are claiming premature wear of their rifles. I was able to acquire an original 1960's Polish milled bolt and it headspaced perfectly. I shoot it and clean it regularly now with no reservations about a possible issue.

    Pics please.
  23. Got it for $500 at the pawn shop. Will post pics later today. Everything looks good and the bolt is showing almost no wear. Also, the chevron brake was missing but I had spare tapco ak74 type that screwed on and looks really nice. I've been reading horror stories over at some of the other AK sites about headspacing issues and what some believe is soft metal problems. I cant help but think they may be looking at it all wrong.
  24. Ok. Finally shot it. No explosions and the bullets went exactly where they were supposed to go. I was careful though. I sandbagged the rifle and reached around a piece of plywood between me and the rifle in the event that it went kaboom. Anyway, before going out the ranch a surplus 1960 Polish milled bolt in the white that I was able to locate on gunbroker finally arrived. Since I had all my gauges with me, I decided what the heck, let me check...and guess what PERFECT FIT. Closes on GO with only a few pounds of force and doesn't budge at all on the NO GO. So I took both with me and tried them both out. So now I've got two functional bolts along with the original. I decided to keep the surplus 1960 in the rifle since it seems to cycle the smoothest of the three.
