Did you get the last one? :)

Dunno, but the one I got was D2, and it was the last of that model(?). A bushcraft knife that looked like a good general purpose knife.

I'm ambivalent about this. From a principled standpoint, it seems like a State's rights thing. Do we want to use big government to force our desires on the States? On the other hand, it could be viewed as a further federal clarification of 2A. That's a good thing, so long as they get it right. On th...

ALG ACT on sale at AIM Surplus for $55, so I bought one of those. I'll look for other sales. I'm not averse to trying a couple different things.

I think I'll look in to the PSA trigger as well.

If I get to shooting a lot, I'll look at more expensive triggers.

I believe I've read that you can shoot 7.62x51 in a .308, but not .308 in a 7.62x51, if that make a difference. You should check me on that, though.

School me on aftermarket AR triggers

The triggers in my AR's are nothing to write home about. I'd like to try an aftermarket trigger. I'm still in the learning stage of AR's, so I don't want a very expensive trigger to put in a not expensive AR. And I don't need one that's terrifically better than I am. I've heard of Geiselle but never...

Any safety issues pulling a bullet with an impact puller once the primer's been hit?

Also, several of the posts I found said people were putting them back in and trying them again. One guy said he put it through his AR twice, then it fired in an AK.
