What the hell does high speed low drag mean? I thought it was some kind of TFR in-joke about tacticlol gun aerodynamics but I've seen it used in other places too and I'm worried the world has gone mad.

It's a descriptor for direct action cool guy groups like SEALs and what not. They're high-speed, low-drag.

In fact it doesn't make ANY sense with a 1911 or similar SAO semi-auto. You have to rack the slide to chamber a round which cocks the hammer. Cocking the hammer on your 1911 to show you mean business really just shows that your gun is unloaded.

The Lansky actually offers more flexibility, it's just that you also see people gently caress up knives with it from time to time if they're new and inexperienced or just generally stupid. The Sharpmaker is more idiot-proof. Feel free to buy either. I was mostly just pointing out that the TFR Hivemind actually largely espouses the Sharpmaker over the Lansky, not specifically saying you should buy it instead.

Actually, HCC wasn't taking the piss. He really was depressed and contemplating suicide. A number of goons have contacted him since. He's still alive, and he's working to sort through his issues. Hopefully he won't off himself, but he has said that he is done with being a goon for awhile. Long-term depression is pretty poo poo for those afflicted.

HCC showed up and posted a banme thread saying he was gonna kill himself. Goons freaked out and contacted the authorities. He told the authorities he was just kidding, but in reality was contemplating suicide. He has since reached out to friends and some interested parties and made contact and will hopefully now seek the help he needs to move on with his life. No shame in asking for help when you can't see your way out of a bad place in life.

As a result of his dramallama suicide threat thread, he was banned, and has said he has no plans to return.

The problem is that the rear loop is solid plastic.



How the gently caress did they manage to get it to go through the PALS webbing?

Will 7.62 Magpuls fit x39 AK mags? Someone on another forum said the 5.56 version does. I just want to make sure I'm getting the right thing before I drop the money.

You cut it like a repair fastex (on an angle) or you ziptie it.

And no. They fit M14 and FAL mags. They sure dont fit VZ mags which are pretty close to identical to AK mags in terms of dimensions.

5.56 SHOULD stretch No promises. Worst case, you make ghetto pulls with zipties, paracord, and 100MPH tape

Zipties are the only way I can see it working. I just can't wrap my tiny little brain around how I could cut it to loop through webbing.

Someone talked about boiling the Magpuls for like a minute before stretching them over the AK mags. I'll truck over to the next gun show and see if anyone is selling them individually before I invest in like 8 of them.


Like so. I'd personally prefer zipties but some people who buy gear to basically cosplay in are averse to them so I figured I'd mention the repair cut method.

This cutting method is also how you get fastex replacements etc on stuff without unstitching.

This isn't the first time I've heard this about Magtech but I've never really understood why.
It's a very commonly used brand over here, for practice and competition.
Personally I haven't had a single malfunction in over 10000rounds of 124gr 9mm(9B).


Do you guys get a different kind over there?

They're gross as poo poo and I've seen more fail-to-fire (round at fault) problems with Magtech than literally any two other brands combined. In my experience, it's terrible.

Gah, you're right. Color me corrected. I must have looked at the wrong sheet last night, or misread it, or something. I just went back and re-checked and there it is, 2nd from the bottom.

And yes, I keep up to date (or at least reasonably so) MSDS sheets on most of the chemicals that I use to clean/maintain my guns. A long while back I (we're talking early undergrad, here) I went through a science geek phase, and this is one aspect which never quite wore off.

Seriously why do you even take issue with it at all? What the gently caress is possibly remotely wrong with needing to keep documentation for poisonous goods -- common or not -- around? What issue could you possibly take with a binder in a desk drawer somewhere containing two sheets of paper?

Just that it's unnecessary, pointless, and stupid. It also denotes a lack of judgement on the part of those enforcing safety rules and trivializes the safety rules that are relevant.

This is a UCI covering every single possible aspect of our unit. Not just environmental, or OSH, or anything like that...Every. Single. Possible. Thing. This was during a SAV (some folks came in to "help" us determine if we weren't in compliance) so I guess I'm a) annoyed that they would mention such a flippant thing, and b) annoyed that the actual inspector would even care.

How many office environments do you see that have a loving MSDS for windex and hand sanitizer? And not just "hand sanitizer," but a different MSDS for every single brand of hand sanitizer in the office?

I'm 110% behind keeping an MSDS for anything that is remotely industrial/hazardous, and like I said before, I don't have that big of a problem with an shop that has other stuff that needs an MSDS throwing in the MSDS for cleaning supplies, etc. Why I have a problem with requiring office environments to do it is that it's not as simple (at least by the Air Force's rules) as putting a binder with two sheets of paper in it in a desk drawer. There are very specific posting, placarding, displaying, and marking requirements for where and how you keep your MSDS. To make an office go through all that asspain for nothing more than windex and hand sanitizer is loving retarded.

youre literally whining that the government has its nose in your job... working for the government. try to get some perspective.

iyaayas01 posted:

Like Fang said, requiring MSDS for something that everyone knows is completely harmless (windex)

I think you protest too much...this isn't a "hurr gubmint" rant, this is a "hurr stupidity" rant. Honestly, half the OSH rules we follow aren't OSHA driven, they're Air Force driven. You're taking my "while MSDS is generally a good thing but this particularly application of the rule is retarded" rant and turning it into a "haha, look at this dumb tea party paultard right wingnut who wants the government to stop protecting workers from nasty chemicals even though he works for the government! haha!" Stop.


From the Windex MSDS: "EMERGENCY OVERVIEW - The product contains no substances which at their given concentration, are considered to be hazardous to health"

So yes, Windex is more or less harmless.

The Air Force wants to ensure safety and prevent lawsuits and you're whining about their attention to health and happiness.

And you still won't drink it or spray in your eyes so I would go ahead and stop playing like you think Windex is water.
