I'm not much on tacticool weapon lights and such, but I scored a Surefire M961 with A.R.M.S. #17 mount for $10 at the junkyard resale shop. No pressure switch, but otherwise pretty good condition. I need to convert it to LED now.

They had a pile of them. Surplus from Lejeune or Bragg, I guess.

I see everyone with the suppressors, and Id like to get in the game, as well as finish my sbr 300 build. So I need to get on the Trust process. No one I know has ever done it, so Im completely ignorant of the process, and everything I read online conflicts. Everything from people making their own templates up to saying you need to hire a lawyer. I want to do it right, and when I say I don't know the process, I really dont know any of it.

Where do I start, what should i expect to spend, etc etc?

If your trust is going to be complicated at all I would get a lawyer to draft it up. I went with the Easy Trust from SilencerCo and it seems to be good enough for me. All I wanted to do was set up a basic trust to get NFA items and add trustees/beneficiaries.

If you aren't going to apply for your stamps before July I wouldn't add anyone to the trust. That way you only have to get your fingerprints done and you can always add people later.

Has anyone here built a rig for the purpose of shooting at night? I've recently decided that my next AR build is going to be specifically for night hunting of predators, specifically the foxes and wolves that are stalking my chicken coop.

I'd love to get an Armasight Zeus, but it's hard to shell out that much money knowing that I could build out a suppressed SBR with an Armasight Vampire for the cost of the thermal scope alone. The other thought is to get a decent pair of night vision goggles and couple that with an IR laser. I have concerns about the quality of IR lasers that are available on the civilian market though.

Anyone have any experience with either of these setups?

Anyone shot the Ruger LCP 380 much?

I have a 9mm now that I keep in the truck and want a CC pistol

I've shot it a few times on the range and like the way it handles, just didn't know if anyone has any long term feedback.

I own an LCP. Had it a few years now. It isn't fun to shoot. It's great if you want to pocket carry. That's the only reason to own one, IMO.

Something that is small but yet I know will have enough power to take down an assailant...moreso than any .22 or whatnot.

That's good info.

I have an LC9 that's much more comfortable to shoot (and super easy to be accurate with for such a small gun) than the LCP. It's not quite as CC friendly but still easily doable.

I carry my Kahr MK9 daily. Love it. Good small footprint for CC and has great balance with minimal kickback. A bit heavy due to it being all stainless, but it also has a nice look to it.

I've shot a LCP a fair bit. It's a great because it's tiny and so easy to comfortably conceal. However, my marksmanship with pistols like the LCP that have long, double action trigger pulls sucks. I had a PF9 (similar trigger and shooting experience) that I ended up selling because I wasn't confident I could reliably hit my target under stress. I went to the S&W Shield that has a much better trigger and a little more size. I'm a much better shot with that gun. I couldn't carry a gun in good conscience where I was having doubts about my ability to put the rounds where I intended them to go. Some people have a knack for shooting those types of guns, but after almost 1000 rounds, I wasn't getting better so I sold it.

Ehh, I have a P3AT, and while it does pretty well for what it is, I don't expect it to shoot with my full-grown pistols. You give up some power, capacity, and accuracy for the sake of being able to conceal it in your back pocket.

With the Crimson Trace LASER on it, I feel like I could reliably hit someone from across the room. If it was some Hollywood, do-or-die situation where I needed great accuracy, well, it wouldn't be able to delivery...but the same could be said of the finest IPDA-build 1911. At some point, it would become a job for a rifle.

I carry a P3AT, because the reality is that I'm not going to carry even a medium-sized pistol with anywhere near the same regularity, and a pocket .380 beats nothing by a wide margin.

I have an LCP and a G27.

The LCP is the perfect pocket carry when discretion is an absolute priority. There is a common malfunction with the early LCP models (not sure if Ruger fixed this with more recent production of the LCP). There's a post a few pages back about my guide rod failing. Upgraded the guide rod and spring and the gun is now reliable, smooth, and the recoil is noticeably tamer. I think it was a $50 upgrade that makes me feel more confident in it's reliability and usability. With that said, it's a 10 yard or closer point and shoot gun. the paper thin slit is barely worth calling a "sighting" system. With enough practice, you can be fairly accurate and consistent with it at 10 yards.

G27 is my daily carry for when I'm not forced to wear form fitting clothing. Highly recommend this firearm for it's durability, dependability, and overall "bang for buck" value.

Girlfriend has a Sig P938 that I absolutely love. It takes a bit more skill to shoot than the G27, but not as much as the LCP. The Sig is a wonderful firearm and the form factor along with the 9mm caliber is very appealing. It's smaller than the G27, so it's discreet; helpful for someone with a small frame that wants more than a .380 for personal defense but are limited by size and weight constraints. P938 has awesome sights which is why it's easier to hit your target than the LCP, but the shorter barrel paired with a 9mm round means controlling the firearm will require a little more discipline than say a firearm that's equivalent to the G26/G27 series dimensionally.

All of my parts for 3 different guns have arrived.
1. Complete SanTan ambi lower.
2. Re-barrel the SBR from 11.5 medium contour carbine length to a 11.5 super light weight mid-length gas barrel.
3. New BCG for a gun that has a damaged gas key (keep the old one for parts), and hope I can repair the end of the gas tube.

do y'all think buying an AR right now is a good idea as an investment? i.e. will appreciate in value

how much would they go up if there's a ban on "assault rifles"?

I wouldn't unless you actually wanted an AR. The market is so flooded right now that it would take something drastic to make it a good investment. If you do get one for that purpose I would get a basic colt, it will hold its value well and won't cost that much. Cheap ones are not going to hold their value near as well.

yeah, but they get to explicitly decide what is "public domain":

Quote :
"Paragraph (b) of the revised definition
explicitly sets forth the Department’s
requirement of authorization to release
information into the ‘‘public domain.’’
Prior to making available ‘‘technical
data’’ or software subject to the ITAR,
the U.S. government must approve the
release through one of the following: (1)
The Department; (2) the Department of
Defense’s Office of Security Review; (3)
a relevant U.S. government contracting
authority with authority to allow the
‘‘technical data’’ or software to be made
available to the public, if one exists; or
(4) another U.S. government official
with authority to allow the ‘‘technical
data’’ or software to be made available
to the public."


the issue is that the Executive Branch can just change "rules" that are really laws. legislating from the executive branch. that is a problem.

^ The same laws the authorize the ATF give them the authority unless there is another superseding law. It's how many government departments work. Think the EPA or FCC.

From the link you provided, public domain material includes but isn't limited to:
"magazines, periodicals and other publications available as subscriptions, publications contained in libraries, information made available at a public conference, meeting, seminar, trade show, or exhibition, and information posted on public Web sites"

"information that arises during or results from ‘‘fundamental research,’’ ...; general scientific, mathematical, or engineering principles commonly taught in schools, and information that is contained in patents"

People worked up over this can't seem to read. The purpose behind this seems to be preventing espionage and better keep defense industry secrets under wraps. Technical data in the sense used by this document doesn't mean how an AR-15 works, it means unpublished details about things like cruse missiles and the software the runs the automated combat systems on ships.

Yes, and it's unconstitutional when the EPA and FCC do it, too. Congress does not get to delegate it's legislative power to unelected bureaucrats.

I don't care what the purpose "seems to be". All that matters is what it says and it says they get to decide what is public domain. It is no stretch at all to say that information on the operation and maintenance of any defense article, including an AR-15 or any other firearm, would fall under ITAR.

On the other hand, I guess it's nice to see the State Dept finally showing some concern for sensitive information getting in the hands of foreign powers. They can compromise the security of classified documents, but let one of us commoners copy and paste some unclassified information online where a foreigner can access it and we're headed for federal pound me in the ass prison. It's a fucking joke.

Unless you're leaking trade secrets for the defense contractor you work for, the fact that you can copy and paste it to a web forum means it's public data that you can do whatever with. The feds aren't going to show up at your door. The language in the regulation isn't vague.

Also, if congress can't delegate it's legislative powers, then pretty much every government agency couldn't function. Take the Clean Water Act. This is from the first page:

" The Administrator (EPA) shall, ... prepare or develop comprehensive programs for
preventing, reducing, or eliminating the pollution of the navigable
waters and ground waters ..."

It's clear Congress intended for agencies like the EPA to set regulations themselves and not require congressional input on every single item. Take the FCC and how it regulates the use of EM spectrum. It would take congress a century to put all the same rules in place by direct law and they would never be able to keep up with shifting demands that come with technology changes. Now, I'm not a constitutional expert, but congress has be ceding regulatory authority like this for centuries. I think if the constitution didn't support it, there would have been a court case ending the practice a long time ago. There were and still are cases where the limits on regulatory authority are probed, but the concept as a whole is sound.

These ITAR changes aren't going to affect you unless you've been helping the Chinese build new cruise missiles. It is a stretch to say that "information on the operation and maintenance of any defense article, including an AR-15 or any other firearm, would fall under ITAR" because the language of the amendments clearly exempt such things.

There are government actors out there who would love to clamp down more on gun rights, but this amendment to ITAR isn't how they're doing it. There is no boogeyman here.

There are plenty of Constitutional scholars who would disagree with you. The only support for your argument is precedence, not actual words in the Constitution that allow such delegation of power (unless you want to invoke the necessary and proper clause, but if so, why would we even need a Constitution placing any limits on the central government?).

Frankly, the details on how the Constitution permits Congress to cede regulatory power is above my pay grade. I do know that if the coal lobby or someone similar could realistically challenge the constitutionality of the EPA and do away with them, they would. The interpretation of the commerce clause by the courts has been vast. Nevertheless, people with much more training in law and government than I have vetted the whole process and I'm not going to dig through more than 200 years of judicial opinions to work out the legal underpinnings of the Federal government for myself. I'm going to trust that given the long term existence of these government organizations, they're Constitutionally permitted to exist. The alternative is that our government is run via conspiracy and the rule of law doesn't matter and I'm not that paranoid yet desipte the facts that rich people and cops don't go to jail.

they also have several options for high quality commercial garand-safe .30-06

they have new manufacture en bloc clips that don't suck

Any of you guys reload? And further, cast bullets?

I'm looking to get into both. I dont shoot a ton, but mainly because it's so cost prohibitive. My buddy recently bought a bunch of land and is setting up a nice range...now I want to get into reloading so I can get as much bang for my buck. And I think I'd enjoy the smelting lead, casting bullets, testing different loads, etc. as much as I'd enjoy actually shooting.

Been doing a TON of reading the last few months...have a Lee 4-turret press, but no dies yet. And waiting/asking for my lead casting equipment for Christmas.

With all that said, anyone have any scrap lead you wanna get rid of or sell for a good price? Any form. Wheel weights, lead pipe, etc. Just looking to get my hands on as much as I can really.
