    My 9mm AR from PSA was a grenade waiting to happen. There wasn’t enough resistance to the bolt moving back under pressure. I had to add a heavier buffer and heavier spring to make it safe to shoot. I think the 9mm AR is problematic in general....

    It’s not my problem. I don’t have an issue with it. But you are still wrong because I’ll bet you don’t have any honeybee genes, only human ones. You can’t selectively breed across the vast majority of species through mating. You can’t mate algae...

    It’s not the same thing at all. When you breed two dogs they are just mixing different dog genes. That’s selective breeding. Genetic modification is when you artificially insert genes from a different species, or clip out a gene that is normally...

    To add to the mess, a receiver such as an unbarelled AR-15 can’t be sent through the Post Office even though individuals can ship rifles. Postal regs prohibit “easily concealable” firearms from being shipped by non-liscencees, and violating postal...

    I remember there was a sign up for this mold a few years ago and it got cancelled. It seems like this design might be cursed just a little bit. I canít imagine it is easy to get that long, skinny cavity cut perfectly. We will have it when we have...
