    Name this car part? BMW E46

    Best Place To Live if money didnt matter

    I'd stay in the mid west but more towards the northern side closer to Canada and buy up a good chunk of land so there is no one near me for a few miles at minimum. Not too much in the ways of asshole bugs, spiders, lizards, no worries of hurricanes, earthquakes, just tickling the edge of tornado alley at worst.

    Still a shotgun. They are often referred to as slug guns. Mossberg sells a version of their 500 model called the Slugster.

    Took my 226 to the range this week and the new followers for my ban era magazines worked great, they locked the slide back every time and had zero issues feeding ammo.

    So some time ago I mentioned getting some police trade in Sig P226 magazines from the 93-04 assault rifle/magazine ban era. I have taken them to the range several times now and while they have fed rounds without any issue they are rather iffy about locking the slide back on an empty mag. I think this is because the followers are shaped a bit differently than all my newer mags and the part that pushes up on the slide stop is noticeably shorter than the followers on all my other p226 mags. I put followers from my newer mags in my ban era mags and the slide stop part sat up higher than the ones from the ban era (I did not test this configuration at the range). I ordered a couple new followers for my ban era mags that look to be shaped like my newer followers in the hopes that they'll allow my ban era mags to both feed ammo reliably and lock the slide back on an empty mag, otherwise my ban era mags will end up as range toys/a piece of memorabilia to hang on my wall.

    ideas for living on a budget

    Thrift stores / second hand stores, garage sales, craigslist. Tons of new or like new clothing, housewares, furniture, lawn and garden supplies ect can be found second hand.

    Range Report Ran 90 more rounds through my new lightweight AR build, a mix of brass and steel cased ammo, with no issues. I really like the scope (Primary Arms 2.5x prism scope). I picked up a prism scope because I have some astigmatism and red dots are very hit or miss, some look like mostly small round dots while others can look like an exploding star and appear about twice the size or more than they should be. The prism reticle was crystal clear and I had very noticeably improved groupings (at my local 25 yard range). If you google with optic you'll see the reticle is a horse shoes with a dot in the center. IMO the dot in the center is a bit too small and can be hard to see at times with no illumination, but turning the red illumination to 4 or higher helps a fair bit with this. The Bersa Thunder Plus ran much better. I am all but certain any issues I had before were due to my grip and my thumbs dragging on the slide. I did have one instance of a click with no bang but a second pull of the trigger fired the round (not sure if it was the primer or a light strike).

    How sketchy is this?

    I wouldn't get that anywhere near a PC with even slightly important data on it. This is why I have an old junk laptop with throw away gmail accounts and what not, so I can test fishy programs and the like.

    Oh, also I'm looking for suggestions on how to "ruin" my S&W AR. I'm the type of person that each of my firearms needs to be unique from every other firearm I own, be it calibur, action, form factor ect. Since I now have 2 ARs I either need to do something to make my S&W unique when compared to my new AR or I'll sell it. I want to paint it some ridiculous paint scheme but I don't know what theme I should do. I've seen many Hello Kitty and Barbie ARs already, though I'm not against doing one myself, but I want to paint it in a stupid theme that not so many people have done already. My front runners so far are Reese orange with appropriate decals, Spongebob yellow with decals, or a multi color neon.

    Range report. Assembled my lightweight AR build and took it to the range. I only put about 40 rounds through it to test that it functioned and a rough accuracy test, no problems. It still needs a muzzle device (think I'll just go with a standard A2 cage as I like how they look), a charging handle (stole one off my S&W AR to use on this temporarily) and some sort of optic (not sure if I want to stick with a red dot or get a longer range scope). Using the very scientific method of standing on my bathroom scale alone and then standing on the scale holding the rifle, I have determined that it weighs about 5.2 pounds in its current configuration. Next I took my Bersa Thunder 380 Plus to the range as well. The Bersa didn't do so well but I am pretty confident it is my fault and not the gun's fault. I have 6 malfunctions and the first 3 were 100% my fault as my left thumb was firmly resting on the slide causing the pistol to not go fully into battery. After I adjusted my grip I had 3 occasions where the slide locked back while there were still rounds in the mag. Examining my grip again I noticed that my right thumb would get very close to the slide stop, close enough that it would touch the bottom of the slide stop if I squeezed my left hand a little. I'll take it to the range again in a week or two and be more mindful of my grip, I also got another mag in the mail the other day to try and rule out any mag related issues. I'm too use to shooting full sized pistols where there is plenty of room to put my thumbs wherever I want without interfering with any components of the pistol.

    Holy cow, did that come with 4 mags?! I'm too used to rifle manufacturers being stingy bastards and only providing 1 mag.

    Got a couple goodies today. First I got a Faxon 15inch carbon fiber handguard for my AR15 build. Weighs a hair over 8oz with the handguard, barrel nut, and hardware. Next I picked up a Bersa 380 Plus Combat (15+1). If it does well after a few trips to the range and I find a decent holster I'm hoping to have it be my primary CCW,

    Combloc! I just missed out on an old Makarov pistol at a local gunshop for a pretty good price. Kicking myself for not jumping on it right away.

    Would you watch a retro pc build on a small youtube channel?!

    I'd prolly watch a retro build as a one off video in my recommended tab but it is not likely something I would subscribe to a channel for. I don't think you need fancy equipment to make a good video, I think the things that really important are good lighting, getting the camera in position so the viewers can clearly see what you are doing and working around the camera so you block what is happening as little as possible, audio (don't record in an echoey room), and how you talk (someone who sounds like they are casually talking to the viewer vs someonewhoisclearlyreadingfromascriptandspeaksinamonotone.)
