Blast from the past – Front fell off

Sun, 10/15/2017 - 16:29

Was organizing files and photos on my computer and stumbled across this old photo.  It always gives me a laugh.  IIRC it was the rifle of a student at Ranger School, but don’t quote me on that.

A rotating barrel in the Glock 46?

Sun, 09/24/2017 - 10:55

Pictures are floating about the web and gun forums or a Glock 46, a new design including a rotating barrel and the ability to disassemble the gun with out pulling the trigger.

Looks like it might have been made for a German police contract.  Pictures and information appear to be coming from the German DWJ magazine.

Here is a link to a  copy of the magazine.   Unfortunately it looks like this upload being shared online may have been uploaded in violation of copyright rules, so I don’t know how long this link will work.

Just got back home after Irma.

Mon, 09/11/2017 - 10:00

The acronym SHTF has gotten quite popular in the past few years.

I remember that it used to be popular to say that your preparations were for fighting off the inevitable Russian or Chinese invasion, sometimes instead the Blue Helmets were mentioned.  I’d tend to think Blue Helmets would be a Turkey Shoot, but lets hope it never comes to that.

Now days the common excuse is zombies, that one is prepping for zombies.

I just got back to my home after hurricane Irma.  Fortunately my home weathered the storm well, but some of my neighbors have extensive damage to their roofs.

Don’t fall too far into fantasy when you are prepping, there are all manner of real world problems that can cause the proverbial shit to hit the fan.

Gunner Wade on Silencers

Sat, 05/20/2017 - 11:00

Where the hell was this guy when I was in?

I still run into many people who believe that silencers drastically degrade accuracy and velocity.  Unfortunately this myth is still common in many popular video games, and all too many people believe that to be a fact.  A good deal of the pro gun youth only know firearm info from the games they have played.

It is true that some of the early pistol and submachine gun silencers that relied on wipes, mesh, or large internal volume to keep .22 and 9mm rounds subsonic did reduce velocity and accuracy/precision.  Modern designs don’t do that, and can actually give a small increase in velocity.  I’ve seen some rifles shoot tighter groups when shot suppressed.

I’m getting a little better at editing these, starting to get the hang of the Audacity program.

In this episode we talk a little about the AR being a jack of all trades, and a little bit of competition shooting.

Broken E-mail

Thu, 01/05/2017 - 17:36

It turns out I broke our email service 3 days ago.  So if you sent an email to any of us at a @LooseRounds.com account since Monday the 2nd, we haven’t gotten it.

Our email should be back up in 24 hours.  If you don’t hear back from us then, please resend your email.

I wonder what else I broke and haven’t found out yet.

Novice shooters and shotguns

Sun, 12/25/2016 - 18:07
Not to long ago I was working at an event geared toward helping people who have little to no firearm knowledge or experience. Looking back at, and most of the other similar events I have been at I noticed at how much new shooters tended to prefer the shotgun. Before they ever fire the shotgun, … Continue reading Novice shooters and shotguns →

I managed to purchase for my self an ACOG EREK cantilever adapter. Now to be honest, I’m not exactly sure what EREK stands for.  I’m guessing something like Eye Relief Extension Kit. So why did I buy it?  Because I wanted one.  Some time back, I saw some pictures of the USMC trying a cantilever … Continue reading ACOG EREK →

Two M231 Port Firing Weapons Or How Bad Can You Want Something Complete?

Mon, 10/03/2016 - 11:28
About 10 years ago the ARFCOM  retro forum had not become the price driving monster it would end up.  During that time it was still still possible to find some pretty rare parts on ebay and various places.  Some of those parts could be made into a full weapon minus the lower of course.  That … Continue reading Two M231 Port Firing Weapons Or How Bad Can You Want Something Complete? →

Today we have a guest post from sporadic contributor and quasi-Looserounds member  “CJ”, about his favorite topic.    Prepping – Some thoughts… A lot of gun enthusiasts seem to justify their hobby as some sort of preparation for armageddon. Sure, when the aliens invade I won’t deny the usefulness of an arsenal. But let’s not … Continue reading Long Term, Hard Use FootWear →
