  1. The AR-15
    I want your opinions on if you would buy this straight pull upper receiver if it was available. It would be upper receiver only with machined bolt carrier and extended pull, or complete upper with blocked gas port. Would not be cheap. $450-600 for just receiver/BC and a grand plus for a...

    Although I have seen some threads about private sale of handguns under the new laws posted, the details of how the private transfer etc. seem to be murky and every thread I read, shop I talk to, and my own Licensing bureau tell a different tale. I have a Suffolk Co. permit and want to sell my...

    So I'm starting out with this Straight Razor stuff and inadvertently bought two shaving cremes. I think I prefer the traditional soap in the wooden bowl over this Ultimate Comfort creme. So up for grabs is a new Truefitt & Hill Ultimate Comfort Creme Unscented like this one: Truefitt & Hill...

    I got tired of buying overpriced disposable cartridge razor blades. So I bought a quality straight razor from "The Art of Shaving" store at Southcenter Shopping Mall near Seattle. The strop and the mug were purchased from a local antique shop. The Williams shaving soap, shaving brush, styptic...

    I'm thinking about getting a smart phone with straight talk instead of with one of the big two carriers. Anyone use a smart phone on their service how the speed? and just in general how it it? I used to have a tracfone many a years ago.

  11. The AR-15
    Easy to do on a 5.56 DI AR-15 but how would one turn their M&P15-22 into a Straight Pull or "Bolt Action"? I had planned on just putting my 5.56 semi upper and BCG in the safe while waiting for the Federal government to do the right thing...or until I move.

    So, if you made your AR a straight pull with a non-ready release magazine, would it still be an assault rifle? For home defense, I'd want a semi-automatic but at the range...I could care less. I saw an awesome video by LanTac. They had a really cool upper with a right hand charging handle...

    Anyone on here using the Straight Talk Home Phone set up. It uses a cell tower receiver that your home phone plugs into. We are looking at alternatives to TW phone service now that they are going to start a modem rental fee. The ST looks interesting as the service is $15/month but you have to...

    Can someone please clarify the law in the state of New York... Can you use "pre-ban" mags on a "post-ban" gun? Or does the gun need to be pre-ban as well? If possible, can someone provide the section to the applicable statue. Thanks.
