I keep my rifles in a LARGE metal tool/storage cabinet (locked) in my basement and each is stored in a gun "sock". Some have been like this more than 20 years and I've never seen a spot of rust on...

It's really hard to say! After I had a stroke not long ago I decided it's probably not a good idea to put off getting/doing anything too long from my various "bucket lists" since you never know how...

It shouldn't be any harder on a barrel than shooting a regular lead bullet as long as you clean the bore with a good solvent regularly. As for the case size of the blanks, they are the same size as a...

I have no trouble finding .22lr at our local Academy store. I'm limited to buying 2 boxes at one time, but there's no limit on the actual number of rounds you can buy (by the box or brick).

FYI,...

I'll go with $1.50 here. Actually, I'm not as concerned with how low a gallon of gas will go as much as how long it will stay there! Won't do me much good if it drops to a dollar a gallon then jumps...

The first week of January has been VERY good to me. Was at a gun show last weekend and got a NIB Anderson lower I plan to use for my next build for $50. Filled up the gas tank on my SUV today and...

My stamps were for an SBR and a suppressor, nothing that's full auto. I wish I had the extra cash to afford a full auto gun, but I'm not going to hold my breath. I have three teens in braces still at...

Know how you feel. I purchased a suppressor and applied for the class III stamp last April. It's now January 2015 and I still haven't heard a word. Went by the shop where I bought it and the owner...

I've had the 7.62 upper for about a year or so and after about 150 rounds, also with ASC mags, and haven't had any problems. I have only fired the Blackout a few dozen times but it hasn't experienced...

I agree that the AR is overall a better platform than Kel Tec's rifle caliber guns and I already have a Diamondback upper in 300 AAC. I usually pair it up with a Spikes lower. I just think that my...

I'm putting this out for comment/opinion... who would like to see K-T offer a Kel-Tec rifle like the SUB-2000, SU-16 or a PLR-16 pistol in 300 AAC (Blackout)? It would basically involve only a simple...

Installed a Tac-Con 3MR Trigger on my Spikes lower earlier today. Aside from having to work a bit to get the two pins back in - this is a SNUG fit and the assembly must be aligned perfectly with the...
