What are your thoughts on the POF Revolution DI?

https://pof-usa.com/firearms/revolution-di/

Is it worth the price or do you think something else can be acquired or built with comparable features for less?

Do you think this can be made CA compliant with a patriot pin?

Hey guys my twin and I have been stumped on this LR308 build we have it just wont group. I used to have a sucky PSA barrel in it 18″ SS midlength and would group decently with target fmj. I thought to support faxon, brownells, and you guys by getting a 7.62 NATO 16.5″ mid gas from faxon on brownells using your link. I took it shooting and it wouldnt group at all. I used a vortex prism sight, then took off the sight and threw on a vortex 1×4 crossfire and still the same. I put a heavy buffer to help out you guys think it would it be a barrel issue or what I’m stumped I’m chasing patterns at the range. Anyways thanks guys for keeping me entertained while on duty at my post.

Five Stars. Great show with lots of great product reviews. Actually just bought those glasses that Aaron recommended. Not bad for a cheap pair of safety glasses. They’re too large for my face and tight on the side of my head but you really got a lot for the $25. I’m always losing my sunglasses so I can’t pay for good ones.

Wondering if you could help me with a recommendation for a new hunting vest. I’ve been hearing a lot of these “tactical” hunters asking questions and figure maybe its time I come out of the closet with my modern hunting styles too.

I currently use a UTG vest. I know you guys bash on their quality but this vest has really held up well for the last five years. I hunt all year round, often every day of the week. My problem is it doesn’t fit me unless I’m wearing a heavy jacket under it. The vest is one size fits all with a lot of adjustment. But even with all the adjustments in the smallest settings I still have to pin it smaller across the back; or else it falls off my shoulders. I’m 5’7″ and 145 lbs. Maybe this is a question best suited for Savage since he is also small and hacks crap together to work.

I have a lot of add-ons on it like a dump pouch for gloves, a pouch Garmin Alpha, multitool, compass, a holster for my second pistol (yes I carry a 22 pistol in the chest holster and my 9mm on the waist) and knife. I use all the mag pouches for carrying different calls, spare ammo, med kit, and everything. I also use the loops on it to attach different packs to. I like how the belt attaches to the vest so the weight of all the gear is on my shoulders.

Any suggestions for a comparable vest that comes in a size that will fit me? I wear a medium size shirt.

Glad to hear that Shawn is making an attempt to change his diet. I have some information for Nick to help protect his investment in Shawn’s SSB. I didn’t catch what he was attempting to change his diet too. If I can make a suggestion to increase the value of that SSB; it would be to change to a Whole Food Wild Meat-based diet. Not only is it a great diet but then you can get Shawn to send you on hunting trips with his Herrin money.

The reason Shawn gets cranky when changing his diet is that he is impacting the level of bacteria in his guts. Those on the Standard American Diet (SAD) have a high level of bacteria in their intestines. This is due to the extreme amount of sugar consumed in processed foods. Those bacteria communicate with your brain via the Vagas nerve. This causes your brain to release more food from your Stomach. When there is no more sugar for the bacteria to eat they get angry (because they’re starving). They then release chemicals into your body that impacts your mood. This will last for about three weeks. This time table will change based on any fluctuations in the amount of sugar Shawn is eating.

When the bacteria finally die they will send out signals to other bacteria that they are under attack. This will cause the other bacteria, like those on the skin, to respond. This will most likely result in acne for a while. Take advantage of this time as it will be like the SSB of a young boy.

In the end, Shawn will have a healthier SSB that will heal faster making it worth more on the open market.

P.S. When I changed to this diet I lost 45 lbs in three months, dropped my cholesterol 100 points and went from borderline high blood pressure to borderline low blood pressure.

Riley reid I’d lick that SSBH 

I am currently building a 14.5″ ar build and I am wondering which lower I should choose if it really matters. After doing research I have learned that forged 7075 t6 are the strongest receives that are made. However, Anderson, PSA, Aero and BCM all use the these lowers that are Hardcoat Anodized per MIL-A-8625F, Type III, Class 2.

So with all of them being made to the same specs does it really matter, or are you just paying for the rollmark on the side?

Thank you all and please don’t let the commie on Double Tap again. #KeepDoubleTapCommieFree

If I take a 1 liter bottle of water and put it on the end of my AR 15, do I need to register that water bottle as a suppressor and pay a $200 tax stamp for it being a single use suppressor? And yes, it works as a suppressor, I did it in Iraq.

Please excuse me. I can like to speak English very deliciously, but my mother’s tongue is Afrikaans.

I am from Cape Town in the Communist Republic of South Africa. Here we have gun registration that currently is leading to confiscation. With our gun laws being so strict we are normally only allowed 4 weapons (a “self-defense” handgun, along with a second handgun, a shotgun and a bolt action rifle for sport/hunting) unless one prove to the state that you are more dedicated than the rest then you may have a semi auto rifle and shotgun. To obtain any of the mentioned one need to jump through loads of hoops, write tests, do a background check and then wait basically a year for your permission card… that’s now for each weapon separately.

I have now reached the point where I am allowed to ask permission to own a SLR.

So… the question is what SLR should I get.

The options I have access to here (and can afford, yes I am a poor) are the:

Bushmaster WM-15 QRC 16″, 1 in 8″ twist

Ruger AR-556 16″, 1 in 8″ twist

S&W M&P15 sport or sport ii 16″, 1 in 9″ twist

Or should I just get myself a Norinco Type 56 AK47.

It would mainly be used for plinking but I would like to be able to do some sport shooting in the future.

Love the show. Jeremy come stay in South Africa your likelihood of getting a “stateside” is higher than in America. Cape Town is the 11th most dangerous City in the World.

Hey y’all! Quick question! (Fingers crossed the whole cast is there when you get to this one.) Alright the time has come to go ahead and get the suppressor circus started and I’ve been trying to nail down a good all around multican. I was really looking at deadair/griffin and others for a while but now since y’all have a sponsorship with bowers i think I might let them pop my can cherry. I’ll primarily being shooting 9mm/223/556 and 300blk. Any opinions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! #wlsislife #stoplettingnickhavedaysoff
