There was a thread from someone who worked for a dice company and grogs came out of the woodwork to ask what kind of statistically relevant testing theyre were doing on these funky color d&d dice to ensure their fairness and were PISSED the company was basically just a reseller and was doing none

How would...how does fairness testing dice work? I'm confused. If they aren't weighted what's the problem?

Dr. Gojo Shioji posted:

Dice manufacturing plays a huge part in the randomness of the final products due to how the throw physics are affected by finishing, paint application, cooling time in the mold, and other factors. Louis Zocchi does not have a ponytail, but he has spent several decades ranting about dice irregularities and making his own enhanced randomness dice.

The continuing (albeit smaller) problem with his GameScience dice, and pretty much all dice in general, is that the pips or numerals are all molded at an even depth which will still disrupt weight distibution, especially in six sided dice. I recall someone doing a Kickstarter way back that had actually accounted for this in a set of precision milled D6 that had varying depth of the pips to take the mass of the removed material of each pip and the pip layout into consideration to maximize even weight distribution as much as possible. Using harder metals like stainless steel and tungsten also aided in wear resistance to the die's edges. Doing that with a full standard 7-piece set of polyhedral dice, though, would unfortunately be almost impossible from a market standpoint given they'd probably cost into the quadruple digits given the immense added complexity.

I could get this for gambling dice. But slight, slight, slight things like that matter to role players?

Why am I even typing that. Of course they do.

Seems like people could get dice with the graphics printed and everything else just smooth.

I'm going to spend way too much time in bed thinking about this.

We should also probably know what state youíre in, because hoo boy some places have restrictions.

Also, I built a stripped lower into a functioning lower in one sitting with a YouTube guide. Itís pretty hard to gently caress up. You will, however, launch a tiny piece into oblivion.

You can do 6.5 Grendel in an AR-15 without going into AR-10 territory.

I've got a question I've been kicking around. My ARs are 6.5 Grendel, 7.62, and 5.56. What would be involved in turning one of those to a PCC or even a .22 shooting rifle? I really need a place to practice with my ARs. I'm sure we will finally get a Portland shoot together when it gets a little less freezing and rainy, but I'd really like to be able to practice at my pistol range.

I'm eventually going to get a Ruger free floated PCC, but I'm trying to gauge the price of that vs. price of converting an AR.

When people talk about 9mm PCC recoil being unpleasant, whatís a good comparison? I grew up shooting magnum three inch 12 gauge shot shells and 45-70 out of a carbine. I canít picture how 9mm could be bad in any platform.

Huh. I guess Iíll have to experience it myself. Iíve shot a lot of pistols over the years, but my rifle experience is limited.

Iím still probably going to trade an AR for a PCC. Not sure if I should ditch the 7.62 Aero/Stoner or the 6.5 Grendel - Ruger/Stoner.

Or just keep everything.

Flights up to Seattle from Portland are more expensive than driving (duh) but you don't have to deal with the traffic from leaving Portland or entering Seattle.

My favorite way to get up there is by train. Kind of splits the difference price-wise between driving & flying, takes as long as it is to drive, and is completely stress-free.

Any drive much longer than fifteen minutes starts to become really painful. I would loving love a train ride, as I grew up taking them around Scotland. They are super relaxing.

I've got a very busy month coming up with...stuff. But if that sorts out favorably I'll be looking to take a long weekend somewhere.

They were recommended on ar15.com. Is there a pretty comparable alternative? I am trying gauge other sites without entirely knowing what I am looking for--including the OP.

Also in regards to savings: are the parts generally going to be cheaper at any time than getting the whole? Or is it a game of timing sales?

About those Hogue AR grips -

I've got almost all my gun grips from Ebay for cheap, including some really nice ones. On Ebay, I absolutely cannot find those listed new or used. Does Ebay have some "NO AR!!!" thing I don't know about? I bought some AR parts from there before, so I don't think that's the case.

Thirty bucks for a rubber Hogue seems a bit steep. Where should I look? AR isn't the best search term in the world.
