Which does not have anything to do with matters such as licensing requirements, registration requirements, firearm prohibitions and confiscation, or anything else incorrectly termed as being "firearms safety" by those who advocate for such.
Sure it does. Part of firearms safety = making sure they don't fall into the wrong hands.
The only way to achieve such, is the remove those that constitute "the wrong hands" from the equation entirely. So long as these individuals remain free in society, they will gain access to firearms through one means or another. The only method of preventing such from occurring is confining them to a detention facility for the duration of their natural lives, or outright execute them. There are no other methods that will actually work.
You're not thinking clearly.
Useless answer, those parts, without the receiver, which is required by BATF regulations, MUST be serial numbered and traceable by the BATF.
How about stating another thread and no longer pollute this one?
Is that too much to ask around here?
Totally missing reality .
I'm sorry to hear that. You can get help.
To the contrary, the matter is being thought about quite clearly. Every failing within the united states pertaining to firearm-related restrictions have been analyzed closely, and the common denominator in each failure has been identified. The common denominator in each failure is that the problematic individuals, those who should not have access to firearms yet do so regardless, are free in society where they can cause the most harm at their leisure. The only solution available is to completely remove them from the equation entirely. Confine them or execute them.
I use a light coat of air tool oil monthly. But I don't carry mine and my house (Fl) has AC.
I think I was about 4 years old when I first consciously identified the smell of Hoppe's. I've been at home with it ever since.
Mobile 1 is a great lubricant.
You always have a car nearby-if you needed lube in an emergency, run your vehicle dipstick and use it.
Interesting. Boeshield was developed for use on boeing aircraft, iirc.
In my swiss guns, I use waffenfett ,or white lithium grease for the bores.
Been using the hoppes "black" precision lubricant the last few months.
Its very thin, but seems to be working ok-of course its pretty dry here.
Commonly for parts that will be stored, imagine the heck that would be raised if a part that was needed to get an aircraft back in the sky was pulled out of storage and found to be corroded and therefore no longer FAA certified.
It is also applied to Colt Firearms prior to packaging and shipping, I discovered that when I was given a tour of their plant.
The very fact that lubrication is being discussed isn’t a bad thing. I have had a lot of guns brought to me for work and aside from the odd one that is handed to me loaded, I get some where it is obvious a CC gun’s chamber and mag well hasn’t been empty in years. And, I have gotten a few that is not only bone dry and pitted, but gunked up. Sometimes these are people that know how to clean a gun, but don’t expend the minute or two of time. But then, I have known a few that have run their cars oil dry as well.
I note that Wild Bill was reported to have fired, cleaned and reloaded his guns every morning to insure moisture hadn’t fowled his chambers or his caps and so his guns were in optimal condition should they be required in defense of his life; think he knew a thing or two?
I remember the story of a Los Angeles police officer who had reached the end of a 30-year LE career. He had joined the force when the S&W K38 Target Masterpiece .38 revolver was the issue weapon, and once you qualified at the Academy you never had to requalify. When he retired, he went in to turn in his equipment - including his K38 - and when they went to pull the gun from the holster... it wouldn't come out. They wrestled and pulled and had to TEAR the gun out of the holster. It had rusted into the lining of the holster and when it came out finally the lining of the holster came with the gun. The gun itself was rusted solid; they had to pound out the cylinder with a mallet, and the cartridges were corroded green and had to be drilled out. The officer had loaded his gun after his Academy qualification, stuck it in his holster... and never touched it again except to spray oil on it - IN the holster - and wipe it down so it looked good for inspection. Good thing he'd never needed it.
That's part of why Hickok was such a skilled marksman also. He practiced EVERY DAY.
Re the K38, a waste. But, in addition, his negligence could have cost his life and those that counted on him for backup as well. I can, and do teach any one having an interest, how to properly maintain their guns, but I can’t teach responsibility and discipline to an adult if they haven’t been raised with it.
One other comment, I have seen people over lub their guns or figuring if their gun has been lubed,they don’t need to frequently do a field strip, wipe down, and clean. Lub can attract all sorts of micro debris that can have unwanted consequences as well. Few, if any, guns are clean, lub and forget tools.
i've used most stuff-I like the stuff called Sheath. or Birchwood Casey- BARRICADE. I put the barricade on my two very expensive Katanas -one's a Mike Bell blade forged from a nautical cable and the other is a Howard Clark rig-not the L6 that he is mainly known for but more traditional hi carbon steel
You're the one hijacking the discussion. If yoy don't want to talk about gun cleaning products, then go somewhere else.
This is a sub forum. Your logic only applies to conversation within threads.
He was a socialist, but interestingly produced the greatest cautionary tale about socialism--Animal Farm.
It's not a cautionary tale about socialism.
