Insanity 54r for $250
« on: September 14, 2020, 05:58:31 PM »
These same cans were $200 a week ago and I told him they were on the high end online for the same price. I went in today to look and BAM!
I guess he's jumping the gun! Nuts!

I felt bad for two reasons paying half that much five years ago.

1) It was too much at the time, but felt justified in buying something at that gun show.
2) The cans were haphazardly stacked under the sellers table, when I extracted one from the top, another fell on and crushed my daughter's foot.

1 can is now more than a case was a few years back.  At least up here anyway.

I imagine Classic just dumping a bunch on the market this weekend didn't help much either.  It's hard to say if it was a limited quantity or what, most of them sold out in hours. Ex Dragoons, round and hex from both arsenals and different grades of each type....30 dollar deduction for separated/cracked stocks.

Wifey said no, she had her heart set on the sniper deal that fell through this summer, now she is soured on Mosins, but is considering Tokarevs at least.  chuckles1

Yes. If conditions are fairly dry and there’s fuel (grasses, brush, etc.) present, they can and do set fires.

I will confirm... YES they will start fires.  Not saying I have any direct knowledge of any fires but yes.... they will.

Certainly do.  Here in NM where danger of fires is high year round, they are never allowed at any of our outdoor ranges public or private.

Tracers will DEFINITELY set grass on fire.  Nothing like seeing one tracer lighting up Mt. Fuji after the visiting troops have been told, REPEATEDLY, to de-link the tracers from the belts before firing bat1.  The Japanese were highly p>@@÷#!!!  To make matters worse, we (the EOD TEAM) had to go and put it out.
