    None that are single stack that I've seen, but 5 and 10 round mags should be CA compliant. Magpul makes 10 round mags, and has a minus 5 round limiter, thermould has 5 round mags. The way CA is going, soon you'll need one of these single shot...

    Ha, I resembled that remark. For years I refused to give up my iron sights so would always put see-through rings on even my .270. Once I realized that my .270 was dead on from 10 to about 200 yrs I stopped doing that.

    I'm with you, I've had a couple of "cheap" scopes fail, one I bought at Rose's department store back in the mid 80s for around $40, a Redfield I think, but maybe a Simmons, it had an internal lens that broke loose. Another, a Russian scope which I...

    Yes, but the suppressor takes care of the report, while the subsonic bullet takes care of the sonic crack.

    I've always wondered what the purpose of subs without a suppressor was? I understand if you are trying to lessen the kick, but still cycle the action, but the way I understand it, suppressor in England are easy to get so why get something else?

    Omega replied to a thread AR generational gap in Factory Rifles
    I have several flavors of ARs, I like them all. I hunt with my .270 Win bolt action usually, sometimes my .308 Win bolt, but have used a couple of my ARs too, the 300 Blackout is great on pigs, the .277 Wolverine is awesome with white tail and my...

    I would just use these containers: JK, I have used black 1gl antifreeze containers in the past, I didn't match the markings then, but would now. Of course I only had about three pounds to store and that didn't last long before I reloaded my...

    If only while working on your vehicles or doing some other dirty choir, then it's fine. But for daily wear, yea change to your civies and carry on. You are now retired, and while it will still be ok to look back every now and again, you must move...

    While in the jungles of Latin America, my M-16A1 did just fine. Some of our counterparts had the FN, not bad actually but it was almost like carrying the pig, without the belt.

    There are many variables to consider when choosing a new rifle, logistics, effectiveness, ease of use being some of them. While the current 5.56x45 may have some issues, it has done it's job for the most part. There has to be something to this...

    Well, there you go again, comparing it to a round which we would have no official part of. The .7.6251mm NATO is a very good round, much better than the two you mentioned. Even the 5.5645mm NATO has shown it is a very capable round, specially...

    With adrenalin, she will not even notice the pain. She managed 3 shots out of a 4", in practice, she can manage the rest in an emergency. I'd steer her toward something like a Redhawk or S&W 629, practice with some light .44 specials and a few .44...

    The .277 Wolverine has enough umph for white tail at longer distances than the 300 blackout and just like the blackout all it needs is a barrel swap. If you stay at 100 yrds or less, and want to go suppressed, then the blackout is a good option.

    Greatest little .22 ever IMHO. I've had mine since the late 80s and only just recently replaced a few parts in it. Not because it needed them, but because I could.
