Gun Thread (3-3-2013)

Everything Must Go

Ammo has been damned near impossible to find, but we've discussed that here before.

Yesterday I was looking for some 30-round AR magazine springs (figuring that'd be the hardest part to make from scratch if you went metal shop or 3D-printer for the rest). Sold. Out. ... at least at Brownell's and a couple of other places. Wolff looked like they had some, but at $5.00 a print for 10, that's enough to make me start pricing rolls of spring steel.

Let me know if you're seeing better supplies of guns & ammo in your area in the comments.

Wingshooting Help

Via a good friend of mine from back home in Georgia (who owns and operates a hunting lodge there if you're in the market), this tracking wad from Winchester should be a big help if your wingshooting skills need improvement.

NSSF On 3D Printing

Short version: STFU, gun grabbers.

Anti-gun activists have trotted out plenty of scare tactics over the past few months. One of these manufactured crises relates to the use of what has been termed “3D printing” technology to produce firearms. Despite the heated rhetoric, the fact remains that this technology, in itself, does not present a public safety problem.

Its high cost, limited effectiveness, and the need for highly-skilled experts to use this technology mean that criminals are not using – and will likely never use – 3D printing to produce firearms.
