looking for some random feed back.

thinking of getting rid of my safe, as all of my guns dont fit for one. I dont have any children, and i have all of my fire arms on my homeowners with a 200 deductable. So if i did suffer from a break in, i would not be left with nothing.

thinking of splitting the shoe room with the wife, and just putting up some racks like a war room so i can see them all on the wall.

thoughts?

I say either keep the one you have and get another or sell the one you have and get a much bigger one. A big reason to keep your guns locked up is to make it harder for them to be stolen and put into the hands of criminals.

This.

Maybe some owners may feel differently, but personally if I had my firearms stolen and they were used in a crime, or at worst, to take someone else's life, that won't sit well with me. That and some firearms/C&Rs cannot be replaced.

You can use a safe for other things too (docs, valuables, etc.) if you were to upgrade to bigger one. Go slightly bigger than what you anticipate.

Yea I need something that will not out grow my habbits. But it will be too heavy to place in the house. Really don't like the idea of more garage space being used. I have a lot of non firearm stuff in my current safe, I think I'm just being cheap is all. Safes are very expensive

Time to build either a bunker or a safe room.

I have known a few people who converted rooms in their houses into a walk in gun safe to house all their firearms

I wont go into to details, but I was robbed a few years back (look it up in OT if you want). I had a cheapo safe that was to keep my guns away from my young kids, but thats all it did. I was lucky no crimes were committed with my guns and I got all of them back (thank you PC Sheriff).
I would up grade to a slightly bigger safe and use it just for weapons related stuff. Get a safety deposit box at your bank for docs and whatever. If your still lacking room see if your local range can help out with storage (I think some do for a monthly fee).

i remeber that.

i just was thinking it would be cool to have a war room type of setup, everything displayed on a wall.


forgot to add, picked up a gen2 glock as well. putting a 3lb trigger in it, as well as a full once over on new internals that the glock guru thinks it needs. not in bad shape considering its been in the family since 1992 i believe.

Threat Dynamics in Tualatin has the best prices in pdx, as well it is all manufactured in house by combat veterans minus one non prior service guy. Gotta love a superb product at a lower cost while supporting local economy

There's a thread on ar15.com that has the current lowest prices for ammo online.

I almost always buy local, but he wanted to know where to buy cheap ammo. You're not going to find it cheaper than online.

Not sure anymore....all of those I loaded at my house got sick of paying the markup and mine are more accurate....I load my 5.56, .308 and 45ACP. LOADING YOUR OWN IS WAY CHEAPER ( and fun / gratifying ) I have all that and then some for my AR but I never want to take any to the range and shoot it DRIVES THE WIFE NUTS...........but what if the zombies show up

On a different note...I am debating selling some of the 60+ USGI marked mags that I have and get some more P-Mags as of now Im sitting on .... 1 ..... there I admitted it .... I only have 1 P-Mag

I would be interested in some USGI mags, I have some Magpul Springs, followers, and Ranger plates that need some Mags to go in.

P-Mag trade?

PM me

my time is just worth to much to reload lol... i can get 500 rounds of .45 made in the USA by US vets for $150.

the diff if i did home reloading would take a long time to recoupe the thousands of dollars i would spend on reloading tools.

rangeday pics and vids coming soon

You can get into a single stage press for around 100 then a die set and tumbler will be another 75-125 the money is when you go progressive press and that I haven't done so yes it foes take awhile especially since I am gifted all the brass I have from the military...that stuff takes more time to cut down and cut out the primer crimp


Hoping to hit tri-county on my vacation for some uspsa practice with the wife, ill post some pics if it happens

Brewpub is right, it takes a long time to recoup the cost of equipment when reloading. It's a hobby you do for fun or accuracy but cost isn't one of them. My single stage set-up cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $600, not including brass, primers, powder, and bullets. Add in whatever you think your time is worth and it'll take a couple years of reloading just to break even.

Yes you can get into it for about $300 but it's all going to be Lee stuff that you'll eventually upgrade from.

Last time mine was out i was getting FTE's with low brass no matter the setting. I was going to get help from the local expert on seattleguns but it's hard to get him pinned down to a time to meet up and look it over. It's been in the safe for a couple months now.

Went out to Capitol forest yesterday. Ran into a police patrol out there. He was very friendly to my friend and I. I didn't have the correct pass but told me to go ahead and shoot anyways. He gave us some info on how to get a pass if we got cell service. Even pointed us in he right direction to a nice secluded spot. So we got to the spot, got our pass online on the phone, and continued to have a great day with 40 pumpkins we brought!

I think I know who you're talking about, and yeah he can be hard to nail down. Good guy though. I've done a deal with him in the past.

FTE can be so many things with a Saiga. Even with all of the polishing that I've done and getting the right gas setting if I didn't make sure my shoulder didn't give at all I'd have a FTE. You can't give at all to the recoil or the bolt just won't cycle. Once you get things dialed in, you'll be able to shoot even Winchester birdshot. I ate through an entire magazine of the stuff without a single FTE.
