    [–] Sell me on your favorite brace LetFreedomPlink 2 points ago in czscorpion

    Something to keep in mind - the PDW is the only ambidextrous brace on your list. I didn't think it would bother me, but the Tailhook is just plain awkward to unfold / fold as a lefty. Once it's deployed, it's not an issue.

    [–] Anyone done buisness with Guns2Ammo? LetFreedomPlink 2 points ago in NFA

    I bought a handgun (non-NFA) from them earlier this year. After 1 week, they still hadn't shipped the order so I sent them an email. They responded with an apology and shipped it out the next day. Other than that I had no problems and would buy from them again.

    [–] My Experience at a Project Appleseed Class LetFreedomPlink 3 points ago in liberalgunowners

    How much rifle experience did you have going into the class?

    [–] [Parts] Brownells NiB 308 BCG ($126.99 + tax shipped) with code "VEE" DPMS pattern LetFreedomPlink 4 points ago in gundeals

    I've heard that the finish on NiB wears off unevenly over time, whereas nitride doesn't. Is this true?

    [–] Not Ideal, but Mayor Pete is at least recognizing the importance of self defense instead of just "sporting hobbies" like the others at the end of the interview LetFreedomPlink 27 points ago in liberalgunowners

    Please stop repeating this misconception. From the first sentence of your link:

    In United States politics, the Dickey Amendment is a provision first inserted as a rider into the 1996 federal government omnibus spending bill which mandated that "none of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) may be used to advocate or promote gun control."

    They can study gun violence, they just can't advocate or promote gun control.

    [–] Not Ideal, but Mayor Pete is at least recognizing the importance of self defense instead of just "sporting hobbies" like the others at the end of the interview LetFreedomPlink 9 points ago in liberalgunowners

    He wants to amend the Constitution to turn the Supreme Court into a nakedly partisan political institution. Putting aside whether or not that's a good idea, it's just not feasible in today's political climate. In order to amend the Constitution, you need either a two-thirds majority in both the House and the Senate, or getting two-thirds of the State Legislatures to agree to a Constitutional Convention. (For reference, 30 state legislatures are under Republican control.) It's just not going to happen in our lifetimes, and Buttigieg comes off as a non-serious candidate for even suggesting that route.

    [–] Not Ideal, but Mayor Pete is at least recognizing the importance of self defense instead of just "sporting hobbies" like the others at the end of the interview LetFreedomPlink 18 points ago in liberalgunowners

    The interview turns to guns at the 14 minute mark. Below is a transcript of the exchange:

    CT: Do you think the 2nd amendment as it's written prevents gun control the way that the supreme court says it does?

    PB: I don't think it has to, because we've already decided within the framework of the Second Amendment that we're going to draw a line somewhere. 'Shall not be infringed' clearly does not mean you're entitled to a nuclear weapon - somewhere between a slingshot and a nuclear weapon we're going to draw a line about what makes sense: in the same way that my right to free speech doesn't include yelling fire in a crowded theater; in the same way that as one supreme court justice said 'my right to swing my fist ends where somebody else's nose begins'. There are common sense limits that a thinking society can live by while making sure that we honor the lifestyle of sporting - where so many family bonds are created and just a deep part of our tradition - and the idea that people should be equipped to defend themselves if they need to.

    Buttigieg's schtick seems to be taking a nuanced stance on most issues ... let's see how he does on the issues of constitutional rights. He starts by trotting out the hackneyed straw-man argument of owning a recreational nuke. He follows that with the widely repeated misconception about the illegality of shouting fire in a crowded theater as an example of the limits of rights. He then calls for "common sense limits" of gun ownership while making a passing reference to sporting and defensive gun ownership.

    Let's be real, Pete is a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns, which is an arm of Everytown for Gun Safety. Don't let yourself be fooled by the his seemingly thoughtful way of talking about guns. He is a member of an extremist anti-gun organization that wants to ban assault weapons, standard capacity magazines, silencers & bump stocks. What do you think he considers to be "common sense" gun control?

    [–] Why get more than 2-3 AR mags? Just want to know before I buy more. LetFreedomPlink 2 points ago in CAguns

    There's an iconic scene where Atticus Finch - the father of the child protagonist, a lawyer and mild-mannered man - puts down a rapid dog using his expert marksmanship (which was not revealed to the reader beforehand). It's been a while since I've read the book, but I'm pretty sure he took out the dog by mag dumping his AR-15 from just a few feet away.
