  1. I haven't seen any real notable misbehavior, I heard a report that the KKK, BLM, and westboro church were throwing piss at each other, and Alex Jones says he was attacked by commies, but otherwise, I haven't heard of many arrests or riots, fires, fights, etc. I'd like to submit that this is directly related to the amount of people, of all different ideologies, walking around with guns. People seem to be fairly civil, the worst I've seen was a little jew kid, around 12 or 13, yelling racist at some Christian guy on a megaphone reciting scripture.
  2. I watched a bunch of live streams of the protesters, it seemed to me the conversations between socialists, trump supporters, libertarians, etc were much more civil than I would have imagined.
  3. I stopped by the store to grab a couple of beers and saw this behind the counter. Norinco pre ban, I think. I spotted the vented gas tube and pistol grip, and called it. He went and looked and verified. It was funny.
  4. I thought all his bullshit was non binding 'executive actions,' we're gonna enforce existing laws, etc. Not actual executive orders. What's this nonsense? http://abcnews.com.co/obama-signs-executive-order-limiting-us-gun-owners-to-three-guns/ WASHINGTON — In a move that promises to permanently transform the political landscape in the United States, President Obama has signed Executive Order 13752, an order which will radically change the way the United States regulates all weapons. President Obama claims that his authority to draft this order comes from the second amendment: “If you look at the second amendment, you’ll see that it says that ‘a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state.’ Well, when I see kids getting shot at school and people gunning down their coworkers, I don’t see a well-regulated militia. I don’t see a state that is secure in its freedom. I see a nation in crisis. I see a country in desperate need of reform. If you want to exercise your right to bear arms, that’s fine, but if you want to do that, you should be ready and able to defend your country at a moment’s notice.” Under the new law, nearly every gun in the U.S. will be required to be registered. There are exceptions for single and double barrel shotguns, single shot and double barrel hunting rifles, black powder guns, and any gun made before 1932. No U.S. citizen will be allowed to have more than three guns registered to them at any time. Possession of an unregistered firearm, expect those exempted from registration, will be a felony that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years in federal prison. States that refuse to enforce the new laws will lose federal highway and Medicaid funding. In addition to requiring firearm registration, all citizens who wish to own or possess a weapon will be required to obtain a gun operator’s license. Two licenses will be available. A class one license will grant its owner the legal right to purchase and possess firearms which do not require registration; they will also be allowed use a friend’s registered weapon or rent a registered weapon from a licensed shooting range, provided that they handle the weapon under the supervision of a class two license holder. In order to obtain a class one license, the individual must undergo a criminal background and mental health screening and complete a three day, government approved gun safety course. In order to obtain a class two license, the individual must commit to at least one weekend per month of military training and must be prepared to mobilize in case of a national emergency. The class two license will allow them to register up to three weapons for personal use. When not in use, the weapons and ammunition must be locked in separate, government approved cabinets. All ammunition sales, even those for unregistered weapons, will be registered in a national database, and strict limits will be placed on how much ammunition can be purchased. The limits vary depending on the type of ammunition. Once the new law is implemented, citizens will have one year to register/surrender their weapons. The government will purchase all surrendered weapons at current retail value. All of the surrendered weapons will be housed in strategically placed bunkers across the U.S. for use by the newly created citizen militia in training exercises and in case of a national emergency. Also of note in the order is a provision that orders the federal government to assemble a panel which will analyze the effectiveness of current knife regulations, though it does nothing to alter current knife laws. Executive Order 13752 is not without controversy. National Rifle Association Spokesman Lawrence Ketchum said the organization plans to appeal the order, which he refers to as “Obama gun”, on constitutional grounds and that they were prepared to take the fight to the Supreme Court . He also added that if federal agents attempted to confiscate his weapons he would give them to the agents “bullets first.” It does not appear that the legal fight over the new executive order will be resolved any time soon. In the meantime, however, it is recommended that all U.S. gun owners begin to prepare themselves for the coming changes. If you are wondering how to register or surrender your weapons, or just want to learn more about the president’s new executive order, you can contact the ATF’s Firearms Registration Division at (202) 642-5720.
  5. I feel silly . I'm going to sit in the corner.

    New Shotty Pickup

    Damn dude, that's nice. I've been wanting a good trap shotgun, under $300 is crazy compared to what I've been looking at. al391 is what I really want, but Jesus H, its expensive for something without a detachable mag. If you end up being someone who hates it, let me know.
  8. My RGR stock is definitely up. https://www.google.com/search?q=rgr+stock&oq=rgr+s&aqs=chrome.0.69i39j69i57j0l2.3776j0j4&sourceid=chrome-mobile&ie=UTF-8 I don't know if this equates to panic buying, its certainly not as high as it has been in the past, but it fell on its face in the last couple of months, so I'm okay with it.
  9. What the fuck is up with this? I mean, its hilarious, don't get me wrong, but why is this? One of the Mexicans I used to work with at the Chinese restaurant had gone back o Mexico for a year or so, he came back and I guess I had put on some weight, he was like 'you gotten fat mayne.' I had been out of town for a while, and I was buying beer at the gas station, and the Indian dude behind the count commented on my weight gain and told me I looked good. Dude I used to know was a burly fucker, not really in shape. He went to school with a bunch of Eastern European chicks, and when we'd hang out with them they were always hanging on him, and saying it was manly. I guess it's a cultural thing.
  10. My buddy had a century golani, it was awful. Nothing ever worked right on it, despite several trips back to the manufacturer.
  11. of the vape shop I frequent. I was at a music event downtown called Secret Stages, where they have different bands playing at different bars, and food vendors and all that stuff. Myself and some dudes from the Honda club were down there hanging out, we were, uh, participating in some recreational use, and the dude from the vape store walked by and hung out for a minute. I told him that I really liked his store, but I didn't come in anymore, because they had put a no guns allowed sticker on the door. He was apologetic, but said it was something that was required for his insurance. I told him he should get a new insurance company, or tell them to fuck off. He hemmed and hawed for minute, but I was like 'dude, you're in Alabama. A no guns sign is going to be bad for business.' I dropped my vape on the concrete in the parking lot today and broke the pyrex tank, and since the store is right next to my work, I swung by, and low and behold, the no guns sticker was off the door. I like to think that it was because of me, but I'm sure other people bitched too.

    first day at the range

    Throwing sparks? What the fuck kind of range doesn't let you shoot .380?
  13. I shot a cz75 .40 a couple of years ago, and really liked the pistol, even though I'm not real big on .40 anymore. I'm a .45 man now. But a 9mm would be cool, especially a slim one, but I honestly wouldn't mind one of the cz or eaa 75 clones they're selling these days.
  14. No worries, sometimes I type things and they make sense to me because I know what I'm trying to say.
  15. We were at a street festival, drinking beer and watching some bands play, I didn't have a gun. I was smoking with the guy from the vape store, and I mentioned to him that I didn't come into his store anymore, because of the no guns sticker on the door.

    Fish In a Barrel

    Your daughter looks just like my buddy's wife's daughter. You can definitely tell from the pic that your boy was irritated about sis's angling. He's like, 'yeah, I got a fish, fuck you, take a picture for formality.'
  17. So, Saturday I'm picking up my first AR. it's a flattop 16" with a 15" KMod handguard, and I'm getting it super cheap from a reputable AR armoror. Pretty stoked. I want some iron sights obviously, and plan to ad some sort of red dot down the road. I've always been a fan of the Aimpoint micros, mainly because I see a lot of non-tacticool AK guys use them, and I know they have an awesome battery life, I've never personally used anything other than irons on my AK's. I was looking on armslist today, and there's a guy local selling a set of aluminum Yankee Hill BUIS, he wants $80 obo, which is about half of what Midway USA is asking for new ones. From what I've read, most AR iron sights are the same height, to match factory AR sights. I really have no way to confirm this. I just wanted to know what you guys thoughts were, being that I know dick about the AR platform, other than they're cheaper than AK's right now, politicians hate them, mags are cheap, and I want one. This rifle will be used for what I use all my other rifles for, shooting cans while I'm drinking beer. If SHTF, I'm sure I'd be grabbing an AK, but I could see this one riding in my trunk if I end up liking it a lot. I want to keep it as light as possible, no lasers, vertical trips, can openers, dildos etc. on this one. It might get a flashlight later if it ends up in the car, I don't know. Really, I'm just concerned with getting some iron sights so I can start shooting, and these YH sights seem cool and have good reviews, I just don't want to buy something that will need to be replaced later. Thanks.
  18. That's a bummer, the hair tests are supposed to be more encompassing than the piss tests, from what I understand. I took a drug test (urinalysis) at a labcorp a couple of weeks ago, two days after a root canal, on some norcos, and never heard anything about it. Work never mentioned it, and labcorp never called me about it. So they're okay in my book.

    AR iron sight and optics question

    Nice, thanks for the reply. I've decided to run this one without cleaning and keep track of how many rounds I can get through it before its starts malfunctioning. From what I've heard, they run fine as long as the bolt stays lived. Thoughts?

    Flea Market Finds

    Bessemer flea market?
  21. http://www.al.com/news/birmingham/index.ssf/2015/10/armed_activists_walked_through.html#incart_most-read_news_article Click link for hilarious pictures and video. Dozens of people walked through the streets of Birmingham's Kingston community Sunday- several of them openly carrying long guns – following last week's shooting of a 28-year-old man during a confrontation with police. Today's rally was not a protest, said Avee-Ashanti Shabazz and Mercutio Southall, co-founders of Birmingham's Black Lives Matter Also-Birmingham, but an effort to educate the residents of their gun rights and their human rights. "The residents have a right to their humanity, the right not to be terrorized by police,'' Shabazz said. Shabazz' second-cousin, Courtney Gadsden, was shot by Birmingham police Oct. 13. Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards two officers stopped a suspicious vehicle near the intersection of Kingston Avenue and 47th Street just after 8 p.m. He said as the officers approached the vehicle they gave commands to the motorist, but he didn't comply. The driver got out and continued to refuse compliance, Edwards said. One of the officers deployed his stun gun. It is not yet clear if the stun gun struck him. At that point, the second officer saw the man was holding a weapon and fired on him, Edwards said. The gun was recovered at the scene. Edwards said "several shots" were fired. None of them were fired by the suspect. The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the shooting. The two officers, whose names haven't been released, were placed on leave, which is standard procedure for all officer-involved shootings. Gadsden remains hospitalized at UAB Hospital. His family says he was shot five times, has a bullet lodged in his spine and is paralyzed from the waist down. His mother, Charlotte Gadsden, was at today's rally. She said she didn't find out her son was shot until 20 hours after it happened, while she was on her way to her second job. She said she went to the hospital but initially wasn't allowed to see him. She said she doesn't know many of the circumstances of the shooting. "I'm not asking him what happened, I'm just being a mom,'' she said. "I just want justice for my son, and every other black man in America." Shabazz said he doesn't know all of the details surround the shooting of his cousin, who is a convicted felon and has served time in prison, according to court records. Shabazz said he, too, wasn't at liberty to discuss what few details he knows about his cousin's shooting but said he believes there is more to the story. "Courtney's no angel, but that doesn't justify him being gunned down,'' he said. Several dozen people gathered at the site of the shooting at noon Sunday. "We're done with protests,'' Southall said. "This is about empowering the people." Shabazz said the culture that exists in Kingston and elsewhere is one of "heavy-handed and overzealous" policing. "The white community doesn't understand the harassment and violation of rights that happens here,'' he said. "They harass us constantly because they think a bunch of black people can't get together without drama,'' said 47-year-old Kingston resident Anthony Robinson. "We ain't got no rights around here. It shouldn't be that way." Shabazz said many residents don't know their rights, so when police approach them, they run for fear of being arrested, or worse, and that's when trouble happens. "It's to the officers' benefit that these people know their rights,'' Shabazz said. The group – men, women and children- walked through neighborhoods for nearly two hours Sunday, speaking with residents and handing out copies of their constitutional rights. The crowd grew as they walked, but the rally remained peaceful. Several Birmingham police officers followed along on the route, but stayed a block or two behind. The officers said as long as it remained peaceful and lawful, they didn't plan to disrupt the rally in any way. Organizers said there will be more rallies to come. "They need to know their gun rights, as well as their human rights so as to protect themselves, their community and law enforcement,'' Shabazz said.
  22. Or a bunch of dudes in tree stands.
  23. I'm honestly on the fence about this one. I support everyone's right to defend themselves, yes, even some felons, and I think it's better for the 2nd amendment as a whole if more people understand its root meaning. And I think they try to divide everyone and say 'only redneck whites who hate coloreds are into the 2A, so if you see it, you know what it is.' So its good for them to understand it, on a totally localized stage. On the other hand, I know what it is: a drawmn up capaign, under the guise of an ethic equality, by some socialists who are running plays from old commie handbooks. And we're buying it, as a whole.

    AR iron sight and optics question

    So I went ahead and bought sights, I found these ruger pieces local, and they were cheap, so I thought what the hell? Ruger, right? I also fabbed up a sling with a GP strap and some paracord. It works great, doesn't make noise, and didn't add much weight to the rifle. I got out to shoot it today, it ate everything I fed it, green tip, steel case, American Eagle brass, and hollow points. I didn't even have to adjust the sights to start nailing cans, I was very impressed.
