Thanks.

That looks like one of those outside faucets that they have at apartment buildings, so the tenants can't use the water.

I don't like it.

Bing-fucking-o.

If you live in anything other than a compound, your house isn't defensible. All that stockpile of 25,000,000,000,000 rounds of .223 is going to do is provide ammoe for the next person who comes along after you had to leave.

For "SHTF", xombie apockyclips, civil unrest, or tea party tax revolt purposes, you need no more than you can carry with the stuff on your back because chances are you're going to get swept up with getting the fuck outta town with everyone else.

Now, if you're planning on going through that ammoe a little at a time at the range or shooting with friends, that's an entirely different story and I hope you have a good time with it.

everyone knows a revolver is all but worthless unless it's new and black. if you happen to run into anyone unaware of this...please tell them.
Got these two for a good price. Great price if you consider I'm in California as their off the safe gun roster, PPT only, before all the panic crap happened.

A Model 27 or 28 with a 4 inch barrel and I'd be a happy camper

The shop had these for over a year before I bought them. K22 & 66-2

About as good a .22 revolver as you will find. You can't have mine...I have the 17-2.

Shot the FN Five Seven. Sadly, I cannot report it was without incident - I had two failure to eject/stovepipes - the casing actually jammed lengthwise between the barrel and the face of the bolt - two out of 40 rounds, first shot off a new magazine - no idea, but since I only shot 40 rounds, it will be a while before it's fully broken in - I tend to think it's just new and maybe the spring is still a bit stiff - I gave it another full cleaning and lube.

It's quite a shooter though - it's got a muzzle blast much better than a .22 mag that's for sure - almost as loud as the .40. But as reviewed, it's a much milder recoil. The grip is big, but with the mild recoil, control is never an issue. The trigger is good - its got a nice crisp release and almost no travel - this is not a gun I'd leave in loaded without the safety on.

Seems to be accurate - again with only 40 rounds and at 25 yards, it was as good as any of my other centerfire pistols - more time will tell.

Fun to shoot - pity the ammo is so expensive - and it would be a cool handheld varmit pistol.

Well crap. The boy and I went to the gun club today to shoot some clays. Boy had his single shot 20, I had my mossberg 500. He's still trying to figure out the whole leading the birds part, and I'm surely not a good teacher at it.
The guy shooting at the station next to us came over and started to give him some advice, then told my son to try his 12 gauge semi auto saying it is softer shooting than the old single shot 20. I'll be damned if he didn't hit his first three birds with it. Now he wants an 11 87.

Finally got out and shot 50rds thru my new XDm 9mm with my boys! It's nothing fancy, buy it's a great shooting gun. The 19+1 magazines are a nice bonus.

That was nice of him. Be thankful it was a Remi and not something more expensive. . At least when he gets an 1197, you'll be able to consolidate your shells.
