  I will put pictures up if anybody is interested in it.

Located in MT.

I have a Blued metal, composite stock, Savage model 112 LONG-ACTION in .223, with a 26" heavy, heavy bull barrel.     It has the magazine spacer,etc. set up for short-action use.   Not 100% sure the details, but made in long-action and it is a Savage-factory built-.223, made to allow changing of bolt head and barrel to other long-action cartridges.   It has some wear but no abuse and is in very good shape.

 It's heavy, and it's only a .223 but it is ACCURATE.  Fiocchi 55 grain ball ammo shoots around an inch, I've shot quite a few .75" groups with a mix of other ammo, I haven't shot it a LOT but I garuntee it's a shooter, it shoots better than I do.

   It comes with bases and rings, and a Bushnell Banner (whoopee right?) 6-18 scope.  It's actually a very clear scope and it came zeroed on the gun and I have just left it (3" high at 100 yards).

  I am wanting $525 shipped.

R & R / Re: What I want in a game

I would love an open world Sci-fi game. Make the next Mass Effect open world and you'd have a great starting off point.
YYyeeesss.... and no. 
I don't like Mass Effects controls, hud, User Interface.  It's awkward and clunky.  And Mass Effect doesn't know how to make their locations interesting.  Mass Effect's worlds are really just tunnels.  Beautiful artwork... But not... "World".

Non-Firearm Weapons / ". . . Hilarity, Stabbing Ensues"

Drunk Crashes Through Window Of Medieval Weapons Hobbyist, Hilarity, Stabbing Ensues

Folks, allow me to pass along a little advice.

If you’re going to get drunk and then go for a drive in your car that you just reported stolen, get involved in a police chase, wreck your car, and then decide that your next brilliant move is to break into a home… well, maybe you need to pick your “victim” with a little more care.

For example, you might not want to pick the home of a man who enjoys training to turn other people into kabobs.

Jimmy Morgan Jr., is a medieval weapons enthusiast involved in armored heavy combat with the Society for Creative Anachronism, where combat participants don armor and attempt to recreate fighting styles of the Middle Ages and Renaissance with blunted weapons, but at full-speed and near full-force. Perhaps some participants content themselves with owning just the training weapons that they use in person-on-person combat, but more than a few admit to having very lethal versions of those same weapons… as the drunk driving, home invading Thomas McGowan found out the hard way in an incredible encounter that Morgan repeats with barely disguised glee ( http://www.myhighplains.com/story/d/story/wichita-falls-homeowner-recounts-stabbing-intruder/25359/Se34wt_jtU-PkrbZEam60A ):

    Morgan Jr. says McGowan entered his home through a window.

    Morgan Jr. says he reached for the spear which he keeps close to his bed.

    “This door is open within five seconds, probably within three seconds; this door was open and he was standing no more than two to three feet away from me,” Morgan Jr. says. “I looked at him, I didn’t see any weapons however I was terrified.”

    Morgan Jr. says he was able to stab McGowan once.

    He says McGowan was lucky to deflect the spear which only injured his hand and shoulder.

    He says, “He started retreating and I started advancing and I was stalking him here, you never cross your legs, and I cornered him right here.”

    In addition, he says, “The door was locked and shut. He was panicked at this point. He said, ‘I can’t get out, I can’t get out’.”

    Morgan Jr. says after fumbling with the door McGowan was able to get outside.

    “As he was running, he smeared blood from here to high heaven and he splattered here and he splattered there and splattered all over there. It was like a deer,” Morgan Jr. says.

    Also, Morgan Jr. says he defended himself using what he has learned through a personal hobby.

    “It’s called the SCA. It’s a medieval fighting and we do use spears and swords and things of that nature. I don’t have a firearm so I have a short spear, very quick, very agile and very deadly,” Morgan Jr. says.

    He says, “I am a Christian man and I don’t want to take life, however I want to make sure that he understands that his life was mine to take. I let him have it.”


Make sure that you watch the video, at least once.

Tenche Coxe was one of our Founding Fathers and a delegate to the Continental Congress who a was a fierce  anti-Federalist and a supporter of the Second Amendment who perhaps has the perfect quote to round out this story (our bold).

    The power of the sword, say the minority…, is in the hands of Congress. My friends and countrymen, it is not so, for The powers of the sword are in the hands of the yeomanry of America from sixteen to sixty. The militia of these free commonwealths, entitled and accustomed to their arms, when compared with any possible army, must be tremendous and irresistible. Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress has no power to disarm the militia. Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans. The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments but where, I trust in God, it will always remain, in the hands of the people.

    –The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.


Yes, this isn't technically a "guns saving lives" story, but we don't have a "spears saving lives" section.]

You might try http://buyxg.com too.   I think they are actually the same company as Cyberpower judging by their mailing address,  but their prices are slightly better on that site.    Don't forget the 5% coupon code on the front page.

They built my previous one before  I put my new one together.   They did a good job with it,   case was laid out well and all the cables were routed nicely and tied with zip ties.  I got a good 5 years out of that last pc.  Once I got the new one, I moved it over to the living room and hooked it up to the big tv to act as a media server and to play older games on the big screen.    You might consider having them build the pc,  then buy your video card separately, because that is the one component they mark up the most.

roper, looking at the Balanced Daily Driver design ... is there any reason you could not add an optical drive? or will the case not accept one?

it's just $15 bucks. no reason you cant. you could also scrap that small case for something bigger. I've had excellent experiences from Corsair, rosewill, bitfenix, Fractal design, and Lian Li. but the daily driver will take anything that supports mATX/Micro ATX motherboards.
Also- when I put it together- I didn't give it a big enough power supply. apparently I clicked the 450w instead of the 500w, the system itself should only take 400, but at least 100w of head room is a good Idea.


http://pcpartpicker.com/p/syYCCJ
I juggled somethings, upped the PSU power to increase the headroom, and hunted down a mid-tower case that says it should support the huge R9 280 without removing the drive trays and didn't break the bank. its 774.39

now I'm gonna start throwing you for a loop-
Newegg has a special on the R9 280, if you get it, you can get an AM3 Hexacore for 89, or $10 more then the little quadcore Athlon i slated. add in a decent AM3 board, about $15 extra, and you can not only get a respectable boost in power- but also an upgrade path.
it's $800.69 for the computer parts and OS only. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gQmh23

the Cyber-power is decent if you don't want to build it yourself. but the 750 is almost a joke. also- windows 8.1...

This popped up on my daily newegg  email.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=83-229-563&nm_mc=EMC-GD092214&cm_mmc=EMC-GD092214-_-index-_-Item-_-83-229-563

Liquid cooled i7, 8gb of ram and a 1tb HD. The video card isn't spectacular, but will play any game in existence at decent settings, and many at max. A cousin who normally builds his own got one from this brand and has been very happy with it.

Don't knock the Bitcoin miners... I had an ASIC miner and made a fair amount of money off of it. Sadly even once it was no longer profitable to mine bitcoins with video cards people were still buying them for other crypto coins... Which is why there are no longer decent video cards in the $100 price range. But yes, make sure you know where a used card is coming from.

You could.  You should always get something with at least a Mid Tower case.   Micro cases are a pain in the ass to get all the components into.   Especially larger video cards.  Just not enough space to properly work on things.    Also, if you hunt around you can get a decent Mid Tower case for less than $40.   I think the one for mine was around $40 with a $20 rebate when I got it.   

Full towers are even more spacious, but they tend to cost a little more.

Handguns / Ruger Mk II Grips
« Last post by Coronach on Today at 04:43:01 AM »
Who makes a nice, thin, set of grips for the Mk II? Rubber/plastic are OK. I just need something that doesn't have the thumb "shelf" on the left side. I know ergo makes a grip, but one review I read said that it was kinda fat/thick.

Thanks,

Mike

Class III / Re: personhood under NFA and GCA and new MGs

This is the important part:
Quote
On September 10th, 2014 the stamp came back approved, bearing that green and all too familiar $200 stamp that would allow for a new machine gun to be made, but the man was immediately contacted by the ATF and was told that he must return the stamp and that it was/is not valid. The applicant says he is taking the issue to court, which could be very interesting for the NFA community.
