  1. ... Gonna miss Rusty! Back to the auld sod lad!
  2. I cannot see it being feasible. However, I honestly have no idea. True, you can trick out an AC to provide lower than the usual temps. However, you usually pay a price, in efficiency, which over time justifies the cost of a proper refrigeration unit. Probably a nice gizmo for short term time-periods that do not justify large investments. The key here is how long you'll need to run the AC. For most of us, a soda machine, like those found in Deli's would probably suffice for our hunting needs. A freezerless fridge would be a nice second option.
  3. Looks like a problem with the flux-capacitor.
  4. I would buy a bog-standard milspec 1911. My Springfield never fails.
  5. You may be able to find a used Diana RWS for $200.

    WHO DIES TONIGHT???

    I have no idea what this show is about or who dies tonight. All I can say with certainty is that Rusty will probably riot tonight.
  7. So the bullet sucked the eyes out of the deer and killed it. Anyone else got a good joke? Here's one: A mushroom walks into a bar and orders a round for everyone. The bartender says "what's the occasion." The mushroom replies "no occasion, I'm just a fun guy." ... Get it, fungi!
  8. ... just found this thread. How am I supposed to sleep now?
  9. I would be building for precision. It would probably spend most of its time doing benchrest duty. Anyone care to share barrel prices?
  10. Any advice on a barrel manufacturer for an AR would be greatly appreciated. So far, my only requirements are a bull barrel and [probably] stainless. I like Lilja barrels and have one on a bolt action. However, I am not sure I want to drop $500-$600 on the barrel alone. That's going to push the build over $1000. Although, it would be a great rifle. Also, in building your own, aside from the obvious, are there are legal concerns/gotcha's? For example: is it legal to build using a 5.56 barrel or does it have to be 223, like the Colt Match Target rifle? The lower was purchased through a NJ FFL. Feel free to make any other suggestions: trigger (was thinking SS Timney) and packages, like stock/pins/springs and all.
  11. If Daryl Dies We Riot Becoming bit of a theme, eh lad? When's you next post: "If I Don't Get to Riot - We Riot!"
  12. Source. A federal judge has ruled that a men-only draft is unconstitutional, but he stopped short of ordering the Selective Service System to register women for military service. The Houston judge sided with a San Diego men's advocacy group that challenged the government's practice of having only men sign up for the draft, citing sex discrimination in violation of the Fifth Amendment's equal protection clause. "This case balances on the tension between the constitutionally enshrined power of Congress to raise armies and the constitutional mandate that no person be denied the equal protection of the law," wrote U.S. District Judge Gray Miller of the Southern District of Texas. The lawsuit was filed in 2013 against the Selective Service System by Texas resident James Lesmeister, who later added San Diego resident Anthony Davis and the San Diego-based National Coalition for Men as additional plaintiffs. The two men had standing to sue the government because they were within the age range of 18 to 26 in which men in the United States are required to register with Selective Service. Coalition attorney Marc Angelucci said in a statement on Saturday that he is pleased with the court decision. "Forcing only males to register is an aspect of socially institutionalized male disposability and helps reinforce the stereotypes that support discrimination against men in other areas" such as divorce, child custody and domestic violence services, Angelucci said. "Women are now allowed in combat, so this decision is long overdue," he added. "After decades of sex discrimination against men in the Selective Service, the courts have finally found it unconstitutional to force only men to register." The government asked the judge to dismiss the suit or stay a decision until a national commission studying the issue of women's draft registration reaches a recommendation. The judge noted that could take years, and even then Congress isn't required to follow the commission's findings. "Congress has been debating the male-only registration requirement since at least 1980," Miller wrote. The government pointed to a 1981 U.S. Supreme Court decision that the Military Selective Service Act was constitutional as written, to exclude women, because women restricted from combat were not offered similar opportunities that men had. Miller found that reasoning no longer applicable, since the Department of Defense lifted all gender-based restrictions on military service -- including combat roles -- in 2015. The judge likewise disagreed with the government's position that drafting women would be an administrative burden and that far more women than men will be found physically unfit for service after being drafted. Congress has expressed few concerns about female physical ability, but did focus more on societal consequences of drafting young mothers to go off to war, Miller said. "If there was ever a time to discuss 'the place of women in the Armed Services,' that time has passed," Miller concluded.

  13. Greg, Get a complete rifle. You'll save money. I would get a factory rifle with a bull barrel. The custom route is expensive and best when you have items in mind based on experience and trigger time. Also, semi auto's aren't the preferred firearm when precision is the name of the game. Spend the money you save on the best scope you can afford. I would suggest a Night Force. Not cheap, not expensive: the most bang for the buck. The most precise "click" money can buy.
  14. I vote for a rainbow snowflake over a unicorn that identifies as a liquid.
