(ie, it lasted a couple of minutes.)
At that point, he went inside.

Sounds like all you need is a pistol grip and night vision! Do you use the EoTech sight? Have you tried the (not holosight) Leupold Prismatic? You have a reticle without the need for a battery, but turn on the battery and you get an illuminated reticle. I like it better than their CQT when I don't need the 1-3 power.Toolmaker wrote: haven't decided on whether to change out the AKs.. I kinda dig the wood furniture. My Ar-10 is staying the way I got it since Armalite did a bang up job right from the get go.
I love ArmaLite. They don't get enough credit with the AR. I got the AR10 in olive drab. I also picked up their AR180B. They are very picky about their mags, tho. Never buy more than a couple of mags at a time before testing their lips at the range.

Two diameters available.

2 inches is the wall thickness.
The big ones use a lot of powder per shot.
The pressure curve is pretty safe with black powder.
The bigger tube would be about 4 and a half inches diameter.
We can use any powder we can get.

most of Western Europe requires registrations of all firearms and they seem to be doing alright. A lot of the countries named as examples did not have guns in civilian hands before the dictatorship...
