Re: Christmas Ammo

lighter bullets go faster, cost less to produce. some guns like them better than 230gr. if you have no interest in carrying them, just burn them up at the range :D

10/22 Porn

Well, as they say : Happy wife, Happy life. I drove across the state this morning to get my wife the new rifle she wanted, a S/S 10/22 take down, her reason you ask, she wanted something lighter than her Remington 597 TVP to hunt with and like the idea of the rifle in a SHTF situation. So, like a go...

Re: Need a good ankle holster for a Ruger LCRx

it should not matter if its the lcrx or lcr. a generic ankle holster for 2in revolvers should work too. even when looking at this video, there the retention starp rests, it should not matter if its an LCR or LCRx https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CcY6ZQSUX-0 same here https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/...

.308 match recipie

I have a friend who is getting into reloading .308 and is looking for a starting point for match ammo. Ron, i know you had mentioned your magic formula before and it involved 168 SMK's or A-max bullets. can you remind me what it was again?

Thanks.

Re: One long gun under tyranny...

i would consider getting this and then building a .22 upper and a 6.8 upper. http://www.aresdefense.com/?page_id=729 This is actually an interesting solution. The problem with getting different uppers is that they don't really work as I understand this system. Yeah, you can attach any upper, but th...

Re: Colt LE6920

1-9 and 1-7 barrels will shoot 55 and 62 gr stuff just fine. 1-7 barrels stabilize heavier (ie longer) bullets better. the most accurate chamber across all bullets weights for 5.56/.223 is a 1-8 in .223 wylde. hopefully this clears this up http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d37/madcratebuilder/509234...

In this oppressive scenario the M1A seems the obvious superior choice. if my M1a you mean the M1a socom. The M1a is a fine rifle but look at the draw backs, its heavy as hell, even with a composite stock, not to mention its quite long. mags are expensive and one can only reasonably carry a very lim...

tye, you could easily do the same thing with leupold, vortex, Nikon, etc. Many here like myself are not in a position to drop 2-3k on a piece of glass. the concept remains the same though.

Re: I'm a bad gun owner . . . .

I usually do a standard cleaning of my EDC's about every 3-4 months and will wipe them down as needed. My competition pistols on the other hand, get cleaned about 3-4 times a year. Once at the begining of the season, before major matches, and at the end of the season. At times they will see 1500+ ro...

Re: Scout scope

i dont have direct experience, but the leupold my dad has on his super red hawk is very clear and holds the zero. after a few hundred rounds of full house .44 mag hunting rounds and 5 years of riding in the holster, it has preformed remarkably well.

Re: Skinny Guy CC recomendations

if your on your feet most of the time, appendix carry might be an option. tuckable holsters are viable, but you really have to blouse your shirt. some like using a MIC style holster and carry it at the appendix too.
