A lot of "meme tier" gear is fine if you have a basic understanding of how each piece is meant to be used and can identify points of failure yourself. If you can just throw money at engineers, then good for you. Buy Crye and pay someone to make custom kydex for you. But for everyone else, there is a lot of value and utility to be gotten from poverty gear if you have a fuckin clue and can address problems yourself. Condor PCs and Alien Gear holsters are perfect examples. Condor has issues with shitty stitching. That's the primary problem with most budget PCs. If you know where and how PCs tend to break, it's very easy to reinforce those areas yourself. A $70 PC and a $5 sewing kit can be completely serviceable. And the difference between having guys with serviceable gear or being by yourself with Gucci shit is a big difference. Alien gear holsters are much the same. If you have an ounce of mechanical aptitude and experience with service holsters, you can easily identify the failure points of an Alien Gear and fix all of them with a little bit of grease and a small tube of loctite. I get that the ideal setup is everyone having a BCM build with full Crye kit, but that's fantasy nonsense for desk jockeys. If you want to form cohesive local groups, you have to be able to work with and optimize budget gear.

How would you guys feel about bolt enhancements? I’m looking into being more of a gunsmith and I would love to help people keep their rifles functioning flawlessly. I would be more than happy to start replacing and staking gas keys and cam pins, as well as extractors for those who would like that service.

Message permalink: 706764284314648629
@Ballsdini there is a distinct difference between shaming people for their actual budget, which is a complete asshole thing to do, and shaming someone for making *poor decisions*. Alien Gears aren’t any cheaper than quality holsters that *wont* inherently cause you to ND through your thigh. There are quality ceramic plates that cost the same as AR500’s. And no amount of loctite can fix the hot mess that alien gears are, sorry. Life saving equipment and safety are not things you can Jerry rig your way through. I might come off as an asshole, but I would rather that, than coddle peoples feelings and then have that dude put a hollowpoint through his femoral and bleed out because no one told him his holster is sub par.

So thoughts on precision shooting. Ar-10 vs bolt action? I'm looking to dip my toes in a bit but I don't know anything about long range shooting. I was considering building an ar10 but it sounds like it'll never be as accurate as a bolt action rifle.
