[SHOT 2019] Thunder Beast Arms Corp. Bipod and QD .338

Thunder Beast has long been a go-to silencer for precision long-range shooters. This is in large part because the engineering that goes into their cans is as focused on things like repeatability and minimal point of impact shift as it is on noise reduction. (I have shot sub-half minute 5 shot groups while removing and […] Read More … The post [SHOT 2019] Thunder Beast Arms Corp. Bipod and QD .338 appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

plugin api call to do editmetadata->merge functions?

I'm playing around with a plugin that does some custom duplicate finding (yeah I know about the existing duplicate finder plugin) and I'd like to, in some cases be able to make a db api call that does the same thing as 'edit metadata'->'merge' from the menu or 'M' keypress. Is that function exposed via the api that plugins can call?

Kobo Aura One VS Kobo Aura One LE

I won 2 Ebay auctions, and I am now the proud owner of a Kobo Aura One and Kobo Aura One LE. I noticed that the backlight of my Kobo Aura One LE is much less orangey than the original Aura One. I am trying to decide which one to keep and which to resell, and the backlight will have primary importance. 1) Are the backlights supposed to be different? 2) If not, which one is it supposed to be - orange or yellowy? 3) If they are different, which one has a better reading experience, backlightwise?...

SHOT Show 2019: Top Five Great New Guns

Brownells BRN180 U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- After spending a week in Las Vegas and walking the endless aisles at SHOT Show, here are my top five new firearms for the new year. These rifles/pistols are for one reason or another a product that I think will not only excite firearms enthusiasts but show innovation and growth from that company.

Army Squad Weapons From Early-Vietnam

Via reddit, I found this interesting. I simply cannot see that fully automatic M14 being controllable by anyone, and by any stretch of the imagination.  And why would you have a fully automatic M14 that is magazine-fed, only to interrupt fire to change magazines?  To me, an M249 SAW (fed with drums) is a much better weapon for the purpose. On the other hand, if all you have is the M14 series of guns, having one capable of selective fire isn’t a bad idea.  It’s just inferior to the SAW.

[SHOT 2019] Whoosh Sights, a new take on irons.

Stance, grip, sight alignment, sight picture, breath control, trigger squeeze and follow through, all important elements for good marksmanship.  Of these, for a precise pistol shot, I prioritize sights and trigger.  I demonstrate this to my students by standing like a flamingo (poor stance) griping too low on the frame (poor grip) and holding my […] Read More … The post [SHOT 2019] Whoosh Sights, a new take on irons. appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

Even though TFB was entrusted with the task of officially breaking the news on PTR’s newest roller–delayed firearms just a week before SHOT, it was nice to finally see them in person on the show floor.

The AR Is Not Direct Gas Impingement

I think this is fairly well established, and I’m surprised he’s getting any pushback in the comments.  There is this comment though: “Come on…You know as much as I do that the “recoil impulse” you are showing has wayyy more to do with the Center Mass of the bolt being on the center line of the stock on the ar15, and OFF the centerline on all the other rifles!!!” Not quite.  It has something to do with the recoil impulse being along the axis of the muzzle and the stock, not CoG.  Still, the ob...

Inexpensive Android ereader

I originally joined the forum several years ago and it was a huge help in buying and rooting my first eReader, a Nook Simple Touch that I eventually passed to my son and upgraded to the NST Glowlight. It was great because at the time, most of my book were either Amazon or BN and the Amazon app was functional. Lately, I've been getting most of my books from the local libraries via Overdrive and reading on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8" (which I absolutely adore). I rarely have time for leisure rea...

KOReader / k2pdfopt integration

I feel that KOReader's integration with k2pdfopt could be improved. When one uses the k2pdfopt app (which is wonderful) by itself, it outputs a PDF where the text is exactly split between pages. But with KOReader's reflow function, the text is never paginated in the same way, which means one often has a line of words that is cut off at the bottom of the screen and then repeated on the next screen, which greatly slows down reading comprehension since one constantly has to re-read the split lines....

PB Inkpad 3 issues *Opinions Please!*

Hello everyone! So I'm a student, and a few weeks before Christmas my Paperwhite 2 hit the curb after years of loyalty. Since, I'd prefer not to support megacorporations taking over further, I decided not to buy a new Kindle. And since I'm European, the pick fell onto a Pocketbook. Being Christmas and all, I decided to treat myself to a new 7,8" Inkpad 3, reading how everyone's quite happy with it and all the great written and youtube reviews. Intro over, thanks for holding up! So far, I've had ...

SCOTUS To Hear Challenge to New York Gun Travel Ban

By John Crump SCOTUS To Hear Challenge to New York Gun Travel Ban Washington, D.C. –-(Ammoland.com)- It has been almost ten years since the Supreme Court of The United States has taken up a gun law related case.

Since then the court has refused to take up any further gun cases until now. SCOTUS will review a New York City ban on transf...
