I think there are two parts to this in my own thinking. First ... as weird as it is .. I really love and like my wife and if she needs me real or imagined than I want to be there for her as she has been for me. She works and I cant protect her all day every day but when she needs/wants my support I want to provide it.

Second ... if the concern is that if you were to go in unarmed there might be an evil that occurs and you aren't prepared because you are unarmed than how could you ever live to look in the mirror if this evil occurred and something happened to your wife while you sat out in the car.

Me personally, I am worth about what anyone might pay for my various components but if something goes down where my wife is I want to go out swingin, kickin and throwing freakin chairs but there is going to be a fight and I would rather roll out with a sheet on my face than wake up the next day knowing I could have done something and sat in the car.

Now ... what the hell is this bio metrics jazz?! Are they chipping people!

NFA/Title II / Re: Looking to get/build an MP5N, MP5K or clone
« Last post by 6.5 Gunner on Today at 12:27:35 PM »
So I've always wanted to get an mp5 and I'm starting to look into both clones and the SP5K. It seems like it's going to be pretty expensive to go the sp5k route with all the things I would need to replace, barrel and paddle mag release for example. I have looked at zenith but I'm not sold on their quality yet or accuracy to the original. Anyone have suggestions? I would love it if PTR would make a clone but haven't heard anything about their efforts recently. Most likely looking at buying a pistol then going form 1, engraving etc.

Just looking for ideas.

I was in the same boat and decided to give up, I won't bring Turkish or Pakistani made firearms into my home (personal political ideologies and such) and the cost for them just seems hyper inflated. I too wish that PTR would make one but I doubt they will. If you are dedicated to the design: There is no cheap option, be careful with Zenith as they tend to mislabel their k guns "reverse stretch" when they really aren't, even HK's version needs those upgrades to make it "true" (three lug and paddle release) and unless you want the receiver markings for the full immersion I don't see the cost justified, Atlantic Firearms has Omega clones (haven't heard any reviews about them so that'll be research on your end).

Converting the CZ Scorpion is a popular option...

Reloading and Handloading / Re: Help needed with OCD polishing

Pins are available at a reasonable price here, considering they pretty much last forever. http://www.stainlesstumblingmedia.com/reloading-products/media.html

I use the 2 barrel harbor freight rock tumbler with a pound in each barrel, brass to the 3/4 mark, and my water/dawn/lemishine mix. I only use a little pinch of lemishine, and about a tsp (measured by a squirt and an eyeball) of dawn. Cold water keeps discoloration down, in my experience.
I shake the brass in a gallon ziplock bag with a spray of thin case lube once they are dry and just wipe em down after loading. The thin film of lube left on them keeps tarnish at bay

I don't know if, and when I'll try it.  I may order the pins and toss them in a drawer, so that if the urge hits me, I can just go right ahead with it.

But, I have a question for you:  The water here really sucks.  Do you find tap water to be OK?  of would perhaps bottled, or distilled water work better?  I know I only use distilled water in my sonic cleaner.

Reloading and Handloading / Re: Am I "LAZY" or "EFFICIENT"

Looks like my question just became a TOTAL no-brainer.

I forgot I still had a set of Lee dies for the .45.  Prefer Dillon or Redding, but these will do just fine.

When I get around to it, I'll set them up in that extra toolhead, and be good to go.

Hmm.  Not really.  Still need a shell-plate.  Therefore another trip to Scottsdale.  (Damn I was just there this week, to pick up a calendar and a few odds +ends).  Well, by the time I get a chance to go again, I'll probably pick-up a caliber conversion, and might as well get the dies that I prefer.

I guess I'll be an "efficiency expert"   :-P

Thank you all! Looking forward to meeting everyone. Since I'm new and don't have a physical shop yet, I'm at every gun show I can be at.

Will be at the Casa Grande Show at the Pinal County Fairgrounds this weekend, Saturday and Sunday with over 50 guns. If you're down that way, stop by and say hello! Always happy to meet folks. We had great customers and friends in Missouri (I treat them pretty much the same fair and honest)

I appreciate all the warm greetings!
