    Compressed gas cylinders are no joke. For example, if the fire department shows up for a garage fire and find out there is a torch setup or any other large gas cylinder? They will stand back and let...

    I'm proud to have served in the 41st IBCT, a remnant of the 41st Division. And knew more than one person that served in the Pacific Theater. with that unit.

    No, those would be the casualties at Pearl Harbor and in the Pacific theatre. Those at Dieppe may have been the first in Europe, but not the first for the US.

    Disbanding the FSSF after all that unit training and combat wasn't the brightest of ideas.

    The Yugo is just a nice rifle. It's been fired. The Albanian, a bit more rare. Maybe I'll just clean it up. I used to have seven, but kept these two.

    No, I'm not that "dingy." I understand what mechanical platforms can support different cartridges. And it's Oregon. A state of this union.

    Albanian SKS question

    I try to avoid questions such as this, but as the market has fluctuated these last few years I will pose this question: Is an Albanian SKS worth more "in the grease," or as a specific firearm?

    When I started working with the 7.62x25 I ran the lighter loads through a C96 Mauser. Actually I had two at the time. The lighter loads worked swell, but once I started reaching the higher limits of...

    I think if they put in a block of clear epoxy resin it's further deterioration would cease. No air, not a further problem.

    There is a difference between one hole or five or more. The PPSh 41 is a remarkably easy gun to hold down for accurate fire on automatic fire. And with a fire rate of more than double the MP 38/40...

    If I can't have a PPSh 41 I see no need to make a carbine in 7.62x25 as .30 carbine is superior in all loadings and I don't like tweaking magazines or feed ramps. I was fortunate once to have an...

    Sounds like an excellent decision to me. I wouldn't touch that project with a stick. I've never had the desire to do something "just because." And sticking a cartridge in an M1 carbine receiver with...

    It didn't get "lost," the main issue was (and still is) the lack of available commercial ammunition. Ed Johnson couldn't get any major ammunition manufacturer to produce ammunition. Ed tried to make...

    I'm convinced the country and the planet will never see men of such caliber again. They were forged, hardened, and toughened by the Great Depression. They could do great things with little but their...

    I sort of doubt the majority of snipers would care for a photographer and reporter to accompany them to work. So the lack of a photo of an M1C at work in the last few weeks of war hardly surprises...

    The BAR guy, the only guy with the butt of his weapon in the mud. At least put it on your boot. I know it's a beast, but one takes care of his beast. He must be real tired.

    I think it would. That bullet is striking the grenade (and detonating it) while the pressure is still high in the barrel. With the added energy from an explosion on the end of the barrel it could...
