    ok, so lets try to keep this on task here folks! Im just curious what yall think. scenario: overlanding, driving over unpaved or rarely travel routes camping along the way. duration can span a few days to weeks, sometimes you can get pretty far out and remote this way, imagine oregon...

    To understand how American citizens today can get their hands on ammo, which rolls off the same factory lines as those that supply the world's largest militaries, it's important to first understand how munitions technology developed. Starting in medieval Europe, on a battlefield where a mounted...

    Hi from California. Just got my new 1911 .45acp (bought from Coyote Point Armory -- great folks down there). Very unfortunate that I can't go train at the range, as they're all shut down in the Bay Area... grrr. With this said, I'd like to get your advice about the following. I'll have the gun...
  4. The Powder Keg
    I seem to have become a bit of a local celebrity in that every time I stop to get gas, someone recognizes me, and asks me if I still have any ammo. Probably 70% of the phone calls I get anymore are people asking for ammo. The most common request is .380, followed by 9mm, .40, 7.62x39 and 5.56...

    Got this from Target Sports USA, they are a local business that I am sure many of you have used...I do not think there will be a shortage per se, but due to a large increase in demand their shipping times have increased by a lot.

    I would like to have a discussion on ideal bullet weights for short barrel ar-15 pistol or sbr type 5.56 firearms. I am trying to decide what ammo to zero for and stock up on. Ill always use 55 gr or 62gr fmj for practice and plinking just because i have a lot of it and its usually readily...

    Went to Cabelas today to pick up some ammo for an upcoming range visit. Was looking for some .223 or 5.56 and found this Win USA Ready stuff, it seemed pretty cool and was a great price at 8.99/20, thats the same as most m193/m855 type stuff they had. I like that it is .62 gr, a good weight for...
  9. AR15
    OK, so im trying to come up with a plan for ammo going forward for the ar. currently i have a bunch of different kinds of ammo that all mostly function well but offer various degrees of accuracy. I want to narrow this down to 4 rounds that I will purchase going forward, giving me more...

    Ladies and Gents, If you havent noticed already, i wanted to send out a little PSA. Buy as much ammo as you can NOW! Not to get to political, but, 2020 is just around the corner and if a democrap wins expect ammo and firearm prices to skyrocket. I am not trying to be alarmist or in any way...

I fired a...
  14. Ammunition Reports
    Ive been shooting a little more regularly lately, a good thing for my skills, a bad thing for my ammo suppy. im dangerously close to the 1000 round mark for my ar-15. that includes .223 and 5.56, i plan to focus more on 5.56 going forward, thats what the gun was made for and there usually isnt...
  15. Ammunition Reports
    I got out to the range today mainly to shoot my Pistol, but also shot the ar-15 a little bit. Lately my AR-15 has been performing very well for me. I've got it sighted in very well and i think im getting more comfortable shooting it. It's a S&W MP-15 MOE. 16" barrel, 1/9, Smith Vortex FH, and...
