It's pretty much impossible to buy HE dual purpose round in about 49 states, a few states they're banned but most just no one sells them.

Is it Colt or a clone? https://taskandpurpose.com/gear-tech...nade-launchers

It'd be hard to take things apart with smoke and flares. Going to do your own hand loading?

I carried an M79 in The Nam. When the plague money shows up I'm likely to get a Bond Arms double derringer. The 410 0000 buckshot is .38" and you can make eight holes with two pulls.

If you guys want to discuss your stimulus spending I created a thread: Has anyone [in the U.S.] received your stimulus check? How are you going to spend it?

Got a Lewis Machine and Tool one, it's a "cult" clone. Colt over prices all their stuff due to the loyal to a fault cult following.
Just the bare receiver, not fully functional. Once I have the item in my possession I will also know the serial number. Then I will send off the paperwork and the obligatory $200 bribe to make it fully functional. And that's going to take a while, up to 10 months to process the paperwork assuming that part of the ATF hasn't been shut down. Absolutely do not buy a bare receiver and a 40mm barrel together and put them together, just because both can be bought separately in most states with no special paperwork, that's highly illegal.

Graham Stephan, the man responsible for Kevin getting into YouTube, released this video, where he watches his own videos, and reacts to YouTube ads.

Would you watch yourself on YouTube for money?

"If you want to make money, if you want to make a lot of money, don't look at what he is teaching you, look at what he is doing. That's the best way to learn from these people. Don't look at what Ty López is trying to sell you with his social media marketing agency, you got to look beyond that. You can learn a lot from Ty López. Look at what he is doing. The dude is making like $30 million a year. You don't think he's doing that from social media marketing, he's doing that by teaching you how to do social media marketing. [...] It wouldn't be shocking to me if he's making $100,000 or more a month with selling this program, the YTA method, so really the only takeaway of this is you should be doing what he is doing. Don't do the YTA method, but instead you got to come up with a program that you could sell to someone else to teach them how to make money."

This is Homemade Home's get-rich-quick scheme: Cheap Houses: How I Find & Buy Inexpensive Real Estate

Except it is $5.

Reaction videos of your own videos are sublime. That man is a wizard.

Don't consume his product, learn how to sell his product.

My favorite part was that Graham said the same thing that you did and it applied to himself and Kevin!

Does this make you more or less likely to believe the money making schemes in the videos really work?

Again, my math says that it can work, just not somewhere as small as Show Low.
