Couldn't agree more. I do hundreds of reps per week on my reloads, malfs and dry practice.Unfortunately, though, practice and training take blood, sweat and tears, and they don't stock it in the Blackhawk Industries catalog.
Uh - which post was that?762 shooter said:Um, Ronin accepted responsibility for his shite. Handed out decent apologies. I think they should be graciously accepted.
That's a no shitter there. Last year I bought some used M16 mags on eGay from a Marine out in San Diego. Most had the OD green duct tape on them, with busted para cord still attached. It made me wonder how the cord was broken, and just when/where it happened. And getting the tape off was a PITA.idsubgun said:
I know the tape is sticky but what prevents the para cord from being pulled free from the tape? I guess the good GI green duct tape will hold it and as everyone knows, the longer that shit's stuck to something, the harder it is to get off.
gunplumber said:kindof hard to tell from the pic - but the way I do it is 1 -1/2 wraps of 1/2 width OD Duct tape with the ends of the cord facing the bottom of the mag and flush with the bottom and the loop to the top.
Then fold the loop down and 1-1/2 more wraps. This way, the cord can't come off unless the tape itself is torn off with it.
I've seen AR mags with a knot through the hole in the floorplate, but I don't think this gives enough of a loop.
