I'm impressed. My slide fire is fun, but even after a 30 rounder it is smoking hot. I can't imagine running 100 rounder through it. It is a serious money-to-noise converter. I get about 1.7 seconds for a full 30 rounds.
Amazon teased me with a 3 book package of "John Milton" books by a guy named Mark Dawson. Review said that Milton was the next Mitch Rapp. I'm halfway through the first. Not too bad, but I find it pretty easy to put down when I get tired. I stayed up all night for many a Mitch Rapp adventure.
I was at a presentation by Elon Musk's team that is building the new battery gigafactory in Northern Nevada. Pretty impressive stuff that I could talk about for a while, but I will try and stay on topic here. He is spending $5 billion to manufacture the Panasonic 18650 cell, and use it to make large...
I have the original white ring sight. I would consider only fair, until the REM T3 is added, then it becomes awesome. I have seen them for sale at $400. That shocks me. They may be decent, but I know I could do better for $400.
dmachine, welcome. You won't have to look far here to find a lot of other PS90 nuts. Everyone has their own idea about the best setup, which is the way it is supposed to be. You will find lots to read on old threads, but a couple of things seem to come back to basics. Use the FN mags and you won't r...
I went skydiving once, back in the days before tandem jumps. They put me through about 4 hours of training on the ground. I recall that most of the training started with, "this will never happen, but...." I stepped out of the plane at 3,500', on a static line, arched, counted to 5 elephant, looked u...
Last week I picked up Hemingway's "A Farewell to Arms". Read it cover to cover on Sunday. Felt like I was back in college and a book report was due in the morning. Good book, fascinating writing style. Started off almost like a stream of consciousness thing, then got more grounded as the book went o...

For decades, Ferrari built $100,000 cars, then watched them hit the resale auction for $1,000,000 a couple years later. Then they figured it out and started selling them for $1,000,000+. It seems to be working. Not that I hope that is the future of EA ammo. When Jay is able to make the supply curve ...

Double J, you are addressing separate issues. First, how deadly is the round? True, it may not have as much FBI data as other calibers, but it looks like there are enough instances to qualify it as deadly enough. Second, reliability. It doesn't matter how deadly a round is, if you are not confident ...
Resurrecting a zombie post. That 451 and I spent a lot of time at the range with both 45ACP and a few different recipes of 451 Magnum ammo. I found a source of brass and picked up 900 pieces and had a good time attracting attention at the range. Put 11 grains of Unique behind a 200 grain bullet and ...

I'd think a USG would be $1,000 at best. I can say that pretty honestly since I have a LNIB USG that has been posted on this site for months for $1,000 and have received no interest. Why would a forum member here pay $1,200?
