  • Should I get the 11pro max or wait for the 12 pro max?

    I’m planning on upgrading my phone. I have an 8 but it’s not entirely by choice I’m choosing to do this; it is starting to act up. The back glass is cracked, the silent switch doesn’t work anymore and the temperature alert will come up even though the phone is not hot rendering it unusable for a good 10-15 minutes. I was going to get the 11pro max; I 

    Actually have already saved up $1,200 in cash. My goal is $1,500 although I probably won’t spend it all, I want some padding. My main reason To hesitate is the 12 pro max will be 5G however at the same time 95% of my internet usage is through wi-fi and the data I use is usually just reading news websites and the occasional video so it being 4G or 5G is a near non factor and 4G will probably be around for another decade; 3G was around for almost 20 years before the infrastructure was **** down or being shutbdown. Also I’m not sure if the 8 will even last and I usually wait a month after release to get it since I expect the first batch to blah e some kind of issue. Meaning I would have to wait until November at the earliest.

    Think this staking is OK?

    It’s a failzero BCG. I like you will notice the top screw seems a bit bungled. It seems to be only cosmetic; right at the very top of the screw. I have not used it yet due to being so busy. I plan taking it out in a couple weeks.

  • How is the supply where you are?

    I went to one of my local stores yesterday. They were totally out of some automatic rifles and shotguns. They only had a few handguns left and even most of the 1911’s were gone. All that was really left were lever actions, revolvers and 22s. I went to Cabela’s to purchase a scope and they had closed off the gun counter and you had to get in line and take a number. I was just getting a scope so I did not have to wait. Most of their handguns were gone As well as their semi automatic rifles. I could not get close enough to see what they had in terms of shotguns but I suspect those were in short supply too. Both stores did have ammo but not a whole lot. I was going to go to a Sportsmens warehouse but there was a line outside and were only allowing so many people in so I didn’t even bother going in. In the meantime I guess I’ll save my money to buy a new phone and in three months I can actually find ammunition again.

  • Has anyone been asked advice on buying a gun lately?

    I’ve had two people. One is a neighbor that lives on the street parallel to mine. The other is a doctor that is not mine but a friend of a friend. I have no problem giving them advice but the problem is you can’t find damn anything right now. I went to one of my local stores and they were all out of shotguns and semi automatic rifles. All they had left were a few handguns, 1911’s, lever actions and revolvers. I go to the Cabela’s in my state to get a scope and the same thing there. Except they have a bit more in stock because they have so much naturally.

    Nice thing is now that I’ve bought all the tools I can assemble AR-15’s from partsWhich apparently is the only way to actually get one now.

  • Liberals and democrats who bought your first gun. What was your experience like, your reasoning and your thoughts about your action?

    I have to wonder what made someone like you finally get your first firearm. Also what was it (don’t need the make and model) and why that particular one. I would like to let you know that the crazy that you might’ve encountered is not normal. Also the prices are probably inflated right now. And if you’re in the market for an AR-15 you would probably have no issue if you bought each part individually and assembled it rather than buying a complete rifle.

  • What is the logic to ban guns because the police will protect you but at the same time defund and disarm the police?

    I’m trying to understand the logic of the modern day progressive liberal where they all want guns be banned and a lot of them want guns to be confiscated; that private citizens should not be allowed to own any guns because the police will be there to protect them yet at the same time openly calling for the funding and disarming the police as well. I do not understand such logic maybe you progressive liberals can explain to me how we should not be allowed to defend ourselves and the ones that you say should defend it should not be allowed to protect themselves either let alone us.

  • Why are liberals buying guns now?

    Don’t they know guns are bad? Only the police and military should have guns but we need to defund the police. Don’t they still believe that all guns should be banned and confiscated and all gun owners that oppose all guns being banned and confiscated should be killed? 

    Do democrats and liberals understand by buying a gun they turn themselves into the most vile horrible disgusting subhuman unworthy of life animal to ever exist?: the legal gun owner? Almost as bad as the Trump voter but not as bad since liberal and democrats simply just want to take over so they can punish Trump voters by mandating the compete and total extermination of every single solitary United States citizen that voted for Trump. And that by becoming a gun owner becomes a non-human that should killed because they are now gun owners and all gun owners are bad, all gun owners should have there guns taken from them and all gun owners who resist having there guns taken from them should all be killed as they are obviously racist bigots and are all just a bunch of mass shooters in the waiting so tens of millions of gun owners should be killed. For the children. So why, why in the name of Karl Marx would they do the most horrible thing imaginable: buy a gun?

    And after posting such an insane thing I really hope people can understand sarcasm when they see it. Do I believe all Democrats liberals and progressives thinks this way? No. Maybe 20% of registered democrats and 95% of Democrats in office.

  • Scope choices?

    So I have decided on a 1-6x24 or 1-8x24 scope. Problem is I’m not sure what exactly to get. My maximum range is about $700. I have narrowed it down to these:

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/rudolph-optics-ar-ser...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-viper-pst-gen-...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/shepherd-scopes-serie...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/athlon-optics-midas-b...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/meopta-meopro-optika6...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/u-s-optics-ts-6x-1-6x...

    https://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-strike-eagle-1...

    If you have any recommendations not in that list let me know and I’ll take a look. There were a few more around that price range and even more expensive but I left them out because I didn’t care for the Recticles. I’m leaning towards the US optics or Meopta. I’d like to get the NightForce ATACR but thats nearly 3K and I can’t justify paying that much. I could literally buy 6000 rounds of 5.56 for that. I’d have to take a loan out. And while the EOTech Vudu is a lot less expensive At $1200 I don’t like the Recticle on it.

  • Scope recommendation?

    I have been building an upper that I plan to use an an extra, and will eventually be replacing my primary AR upper which is a basic M4 carbine type with a magpul handguard. I’m assembling it piece by piece and I just installed and torqued the barrel on the upper and got the gas tube installed. All that is left is to get a crush washer to put on the muzzle device because I oddly don’t have one sitting around, charging handle, BUIS and a scope. I have decided on what other parts I’m getting and have decided to put a 1-6x24 or 1-8x24 on this one. But I’m not sure what. There seems to be two kinds: The really cheap and the obscenely expensive. Any recommendations? My budget is $500. I can push it to $600.

    Trying to identify this bench vise?

    So I got a free bench vise. It is a Wilton which is a brand name but it appears to be a foreign built since the base has “China” printed on the bottom. It’s not new but it’s not super old either. The jaws are 4” wide and it opens to 4-1/2”. I could find no unique identifiers except for the number 27 on the body of the back jaw and the number 30 on the front jaw. I’d just like to know what I have. I don’t plan on giving it heavy usage so I don’t need a $400 vice but I thought it would be nice to have a bench vise in general. And it was free

  • Fully paid off a loan but still got a small charge?

    So last month when I got my tax return are used it to pay off a loan I’ve had for a few years. There was not much left on that loan; just under $800 so I decided since I had the money I would just pay it off in one go. Today I get a bill from that bank stating I still owe a little amount. Just over $4 Even though the balance was $0 after I paid it off.  I’ll pay that amount because it’s so small but where would that come from?

  • Cigna sends me statements of bills I never get.?

    So I have CIGNA as my health insurance through work and every six months to a year I have to go in for routine bloodwork. Usually two or three weeks later I get a statement from CIGNA saying I owe the lab X amount of money for the tests. It always says “this is not a bill“. But I don’t actually get the bill from the lab. It’s a big amount; maybe $35-$40 after they cover the nearly $1000 of the bloodwork but I am curious what could be be going on.

  • Rifle rest  Recommendations?

    Since all the ranges are closed and I cannot find ammo that isn’t being price gouged I’ve been buying parts and other stuff. One thing I’ve been looking at is a new rifle rest for target shooting. I have a Caldwell Matrix. It’s OK but it tends to bounce around a lot and I think that affects my shots sometimes. Especially my groups since I have to literally move the whole unit back into position after each shot. Looking for something heavier. I can do $100 easily, $150 for something really good but I’m looking for recommendations.

  • Has anyone here ever had to replace an AR-15 part due to failure or age?

    I’ve decided to buy a couple bolts, extractor upgrade kit and firing pins since one of mine is getting at a high round count. But has anyone here had to replace a part due to failure or just plain wear and tear? What was it and why.

  • Can an AR-15’s headspace change?

    I was watching a video where someone was shooting an AR and it had a failure. It was not a catastrophic one though. It appears when they fired the rifle while the casing was being pulled out it tore open near the bottom of the case shooting gas out. Some people commented that the headspace became out of tolerance due to thousands upon thousands of rounds being fired through that gun over the years. Is that a thing? And if so would you just replace the bolt or the whole BCG?

  • Question about .38 Special +P?

    I was looking at a ballistic chart comparing different brands and types of .38 special and there was a couple brands of 38 Special that had 278 ft. Lbs. of Energy and 890 fps at the muzzle that was rated +P but then there was another one that had 330ft. Lbs of energy and 969 fps at the muzzle that wasn’t rated +P. Both were heavier 158gr. What’s going on? Why isn’t a round that hits harder and faster than a +P not a +P? I’ve never been into .38 special much, mostly using .357 magnum so I’m not that educated in this area.

  • Democrats, would you vote for Bloomberg if he became the nominee in a contested convention if he bribed the superdelegates?

    Not only a contested convention. But a contested convention where Bernie Sanders or maybe mayor Pete got the majority of normal delegates during the primaries but not enough but then Bloombergs money bribed the superdelegates for their votes sucuring his nomination. Would you vote for Bloomberg in the general election, not vote or vote for Trump?

  • Why do pre approved credit cards have a such high interest rate?

    I don’t have a credit card and I’m very good at budgeting so never bothered. My credit was of course pretty bad a couple years back at below 600 but I dug in and paid off my debts and loans and staying on top of my payments for 4 loans at the same time and finishing 2 I managed to get my credit score to the lower 700’s. And with my new job I should finish off another one in 5-6 months leaving one left which I am 7 months ahead in. However even now when I get pre-approved credit cards in the mail the interest rate is around 25%. Raising my credit by nearly 200 points didn’t do a thing about those not that I would ever apply. Why is that and and what would be a better option?
