Welcome @Preyhunter. Great intro!
Give it time, they are degenerates except MAC82 he is a swell guy.
Might be party due to the software, its all jacked from other sources and reassembled as new
Haha, nicknamed already, I see. That’s cool.
I still need to take my noob class, but what’s the main focus here? I came in thinking it was building since that’s how I found it, but now I’m thinking not. What do you guys do around here, besides the usual giving each other grief? That is an important part of comaraderie, so it’s expected.
Milled my last remaining 80% AR lower yesterday and found out my 5 lpks shipped from Glock last night. I’ll be busy for another week or so on those, then it will probably be on to a couple of 1911s. Planning on making a dedicated host for a .22LR conversion kit and a 9mm at some point, but I have a lot of .45 parts on hand right now so at least one or two of those in the very near future. Many other builders in this group?
One more thing…I don’t have a mill! All hand tools/power tools and jigs, so no cool custom design work for me.
Welcome to the forum!
We actually do discuss serious gun stuff, lately the enemy leftists too. Pretty much a little bit of everything.
The active members have diverse interests, so we don’t have a single main focus here @Preyhunter. We talk about gunsmithing, builds, reloading, politics, competition, hunting, beer, music, funny memes, etc, etc. Anything goes, so feel free to start a new topic in your area(s) of interest.
Stop by our gunsmithing section and visit the 80% builds. See our fellow builders show off their projects.
Post some pics please
@srdiver, would that username mean search and rescue diver?
I will definitely be perusing that section. One can never learn enough!
Focus is an alien word around here, I would describe this place as the ADHD and firearms forum. For the really messed up stuff you need to access the lounge area.
In terms of guns …yeah thats the main focus, just post your firearms questions in the firearms sections and stay out of the lounge unless you want to read page after page of penis jokes and offensive memes. Thats the gist of it at least.
Its also customary to call @Belt-Fed offensive stuff , he claims it makes him feel young again.
once upon my youth - yes (2012 anyways)
was a unrestricted air and unrestricted mixed gas just to mention a couple pieces of paper.
If NEDU/DCIEM means anything…
We have many interest outside of building but I’m assembling an ar in 7.62x39 when the parts get here but I don’t think it is complex enough to think it’s more than assembly. The milling, fitting, and machining is more what I would count as building
Do you have a shotgun?
I had to look those up. I started diving recreationally in 2009 (late start) and have worked my way up to PADI Rescue Diver for what that’s worth. I tend to choose expensive hobbies it seems (cars, guns, diving, shooting these days).
Do you have a shotgun?
I have an 870, a Charles Daly semiauto, and a Turkish O/U with 20"/30" convertible barrels. I’d like to get a Beretta semiauto, but I just can’t justify the cost for a shotgun that doesn’t get used nearly enough as it is. My in-laws were farmers, but sold off nearly all of their land a few years ago to buy a lake house, including all of my old bird hunting spots. They have one small place left where I can deer and hog hunt, but not very often. I have a buddy with a place that’s closer that has said I can take all the hogs off of his land that I want, so that’s the majority of my hunting these days. Hogs are a problem here.
This is the polymer lower I did this weekend. Still need to do some cleanup work on it.
This is my “milling station” with the aluminum lower I did a couple of weeks ago in progress. I think it was 7075 aluminum and I broke 3 end mill bits on it, so I’ve decided to stick with 6061 or polymer moving forward.
Well… you got’r done!
Ok. You’re good.
