All the guns I have are currently in use so I can't take pictures of them.

Sorry. Unsure

I did just put a Blackhalk Axiom stock on my Ruger 10/22 and love it!

It's an inexpensive (<$100) Leatherwood. Nice red dot that holds true very well, but I'd get one with a smaller objective next time.

I switch it out with this when I want to shoot accurately beyond 50 yards...



A Nikon Prostaff 3-9X40mm designed for rimfire rifles on a 3/4" QD riser. Though the M&P 15-22 isn't really considered a "tack driver", with this scope I can pick off clays set into a berm at 100 yards like I'm at a carnival game on the midway.

I'll post up some target pics asap.

What do you mean by this? I don't get it. Just take some pictures...it's easy peazy....watch...

Here'in be the other side of the scope...



And this here is the ambi-charging handle upgrade you see in the scoped rifle pics. It's got excellent access to either side...

What I mean is that all my firearms are no frills workhorses that don't need their pictures taken, other than for insurance purposes.

Other than a few shots of me posing with a rifle next to a deer I shot I don't have any pictures of my firearms.

Sorry.

Nice little AR platform you have there though. Myself I'm planning on picking one up in June but chambered in 5.56 mm with an 18" barrel.

Thanks! It's a fun little plinker for sure...As far as something chambered in a 5.56...I gots mine...

At 100 yards, this one actually is a tack driver.

Here's a no frills workhorse. It eats through 5000 to 7500 rounds a year...



As you can see, it's got plenty of holster wear and I'm well into my second set of grips. The only thing changed from the stock pistol is the fiber optic blade on the front and tactical rear sight. Oh, and I used a white crayola to whiten in the logo and lettering on the slide.



After a two year hiatus from competitive shooting, I won a pistol only stage with it at my first 2-gun match last month. I actually edged out a couple of guys that classified well above me.

Hey Pinky, what basic brand of economical AR do you recommend?

I'm looking for a simple gas operated model with a folding stock and either iron or flip up sights.

Right now I'm looking at Bushmaster. Your thoughts?

Can't really comment other than to say Bushmaster makes a nice product and that I would look for a good used gun to buy.

I was just at a new gun store this morning that opened up near my folks and was in sticker shock over the AR's I saw for sale there.

With this election cycle heating up, those prices are going to go nowhere but UP.

fixt.

Yep, they are definitely something eelse...I like to work with and tweak this 15-22 quite a bit actually.

Here's the latest mod. I added a CAA magwell grip and positioned the Magpul angled grip a lot more forward...



I haven't had an opportunity to compete with this set up, yet. I like the feel though and I think the tight grip will work well pieing targets on an IDPA stage.

Some of you more keenly perceptive readers may also notice the 1/2" cheek riser I added to the stock.

I actually have had a chance to test that new fit out and am happy to report it was a good investment. It brings the optics into operation much quicker with a much better cheek weld that's attained more consistently than the factory stock offered. It's all a matter of personal preference though.

The AR platform is like the Barbie Doll of firearms. The accessories you can add are almost endless.

For me I'm looking at simple and clean AR with flip up iron sights, front grip, and tac sling.

Throw on a flashlight if I need and that's it. A simple, easy to operate workhorse.

Got to fire an M14 this weekend. Fun to watch stuff explode (shoulder hurts a bit from several dozen 7.62 rounds though). I hear there's plenty of 'em around from WW2 days, and in fine shooting shape.

I understand adding a light and grip, maybe laser too, but won't a tricked out gun possibly give a wrong impression in front of a jury of your peers?

Is it? I dunno, I was just told the Army has stocks of 'em lying around from decades ago (pre-m16 days) and I figured it was from WW2.

Seems you were right; I was off by a good 15 years http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M14_rifle

edit: Is it just me, or does somebody else's mind tend to go from WW2 straight to Vietnam, forgetting Korea?

Weren't full size standard issue battle rifles replaced by carbines and the m14 and subsequent smg's? Something about how they noticed the direct correlation between amount of ammo discharged and number of kills on the battlefield...

Haven't fired an M1. Yet anyway.

The Mexican army's std issue rifle is a piece of crap. I get that they want to have some autonomy and whatnot, but they seem like a waste of money and resources to me when compared to SCARS or HK/Colt rifles/carbines.

Yes full size battle rifles where replaced by smaller caliber carbines for standard troops.

However modern versions of M1A1 / M14 are still used by squad designated marksmen and portions of sniper units as a long range, highly accurate semi-auto weapons platform.

Of course in the past couple of years R&D has caught up with the battlefield and now several larger caliber (7.62mm, .308) semi auto rifles are being developed based on the AR 15 platform.

The old adage about how it's better to be judged by twelve than carried by six is a false dichotomy. Nobody's telling you not to accessorize your guns, and I totally get why many people like doing so (a well crafted gun is a mechanical and esthetic work of art), but think about the high likelyhood that your online history will be presented as evidence against you if you're ever tried for a crime.

From what I've read online, you seem like a responsible gunowner and not a man who's prone to physical violence. Why would you risk painting yourself in a negative light before the people in charge of deciding your fate? Yes it's hypothetical, but that's also why you carry a gun: for the hypothetical case in that you need to protect your life, right?

Yes it's hypothetical, but that's also why you carry a gun: for the hypothetical case in that you need to protect your life, right?

Wouldn't that be circumstantial evidence, and therefore inadmissible?

Since every defendant had a good lawyer and every jury managed to get through the trial untainted.

Pink, it's like that cop who got arrested last year for excessive force; he was dumb enough to update his facebook the weekend prior with something like "watching Training Day to brush up on proper police procedures". Paranoia? Meh, depends on who you ask and who you are. You do live in a state that has the death penalty on the books, so you know, it's your call.

I have a SS Ruger Mini-14 that'll chamber that round just fine and it comes with lots of extras (Tapco tactical set-up, 30 & 20 round magazines and integral scope rings + the original walnut furniture.) I'm willing to part with it, too.

Thanks for the offer Pinky. I'll have to think about it though as my wife may use it on me if I pick one up and the Remington 870 next week. Crazy

Hell I may not even buy the 870 since Duluth MN had major flooding (8+ inches of rain in under 12 hours) and declared an disaster zone. sinkholes bigger than cars, roads washed out, houses pushed downhill three blocks.

My neighbors and I are lucky though and our homes and property are all fine. Until we back from our road trip though we won't know for certain.

Hadn't heard about that weather...sorry for your troubles.

Stay dry.

BTW, that wasn't really an "offer." It's just a matter of fact.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ruger_Mini-14

Wikipedia wrote:
The Mini-14 was first introduced in 1974 by Ruger. Mini-14 is derived from the military M14 rifle implying a miniature version of the M14. Ruger used the M14 as a model for the new rifle while incorporating numerous innovations and cost-saving engineering changes. The Mini-14 proved popular with small-game hunters, ranchers, law enforcement, security personnel and target shooters. Hollywood helped to drive the Mini-14's popularity by showcasing the stainless-steel folding stock Mini-14 in "The A-Team" TV Show.

There is a statistic on this page: http://www.yellowstone-bearman.com/b_spray.html that basically states that 40% of people involved in a bear attack that defend themselves with firearms end up going to the hospital with serious injuries. However, people who properly employ bear spray often walk away unscathed.
Over here, bear spray is $35 a can versus several hundred for a compensator and enough ammo to regularly hit a charging bear. As an added bonus, the bear generally survives the bear spray, albeit a bit angrily.

Note that my question was not about black or grizzly bears, but ICE bears.

In spitzbergen, you are not given a permit for a hike unless you are armed (rifle min .308, if Handgun 454 Casull, but they prefer you take a rifle or shotgun), and have proof that you know how to use the weapon (and have the paperwork, of course).

oh, and btw:
quite_old wrote:
The National Park Rangers are advising hikers in Glacier National Park and other Rocky Mountain parks to be alert for bears and take extra precautions to avoid an encounter.
They advise park visitors to wear little bells on their clothes so they make noise when hiking. The bell noise allows bears to hear them coming from a distance and not be startled by a hiker accidentally sneaking up on them. This might cause a bear to charge.
Visitors should also carry a bear pepper spray just in case a bear is encountered. Spraying the pepper into the air will irritate the bear's sensitive nose and it will run away.
It is also a good idea to keep an eye out for fresh bear scat so you have an idea if bears are in the area. People should be able to recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear scat.
Black bear droppings are smaller and often contain berries, leaves, and possibly bits of fur. Grizzly bear droppings tend to contain small bells and smell of pepper.

Sorry I didn't see your last post . . . .

Then again if you have regs about the caliber requirements . . . .

1. Do a google search.
2. Ask the park / wildlife rangers.

You're not going to find a light or inexpensive option based on the regs that you listed.

Personally I'd go with a lever action guide gun in .45-70 or .450 calibers.

Yes, we heard you. You need a gun, and a big one. What chad and I are suggesting is that you carry bear spray as well; while they haven't tested it on polar bears, I would stake a substantial amount of money that it is effective. Hell, I'd bet my life on it.

If I were to carry a gun for bear defense, it would be a 12 gauge pump shotgun with alternating loads of 00 buckshot and slugs. The buckshot eliminates most of the annoying need to aim the thing.

ok, sorry, did not get the "as well" part. makes sense.
and a shotgun with buckshot and slugs seems to make sense as well. any recomendation on what is sturdy and does not act up in arctic conditions (thaw / freeze / wet / dry /dirt)?

When I worked the gun counter at a sporting goods store here in AZ, we had the State record bear (in stuffed form) at the entrance to the store. The hunter that got him came in one day and we chatted. He showed me the scar where the taxidermist had removed a ten guage slug from the bears skull. It had healed over. That bear wasn't even waist high on all fours.
Get a bigger gun....or get bear spray.

Sorry doc but you still need to aim 00 buckshot. At a the distance that you'd be shooting buckshot (10-15 yards) the 00 shot will have a pattern around 2" in diameter. This is of course using a choke that will allow you to fire both slugs and buckshot.

Once you move out past 15 yards with a choke that allows you to shoot slugs the shot pattern will be too spread out to do much damage to a large animal. Regardless of range buckshot isn't going to have the penetration you'd need on polar bear.

If I where to use a 12 gauge shotgun for polar bear defense I would keep the thing loaded with only slugs. I'd still take with a dozen 00 buck shells though.

Also I'd stay away from shotguns without a butstock; they are very hard to aim and make followup shots. I'd go with a pistol grip with collapsible butstock, five round tube, 20" barrel and mound a side saddle on the receiver to hold extra shells.


Hell the Remington 870 tactical would work rather well. Base price is $370 and you'd need to add the collapsible stock and sidesaddle which will add another $200.

From your link:

"Polar Bear precautions

The polar bear is one on the world's largest predators and extremely dangerous for humans. It can materialise anywhere in Svalbard, all year-round. Should one emerge, your line of conduct should be to keep a safe distance, evading trouble. If this is not possible, you are allowed to shoot the bear in self-defence."

I kinda like it...a sorta wilderness stand your ground law.



Edited to add this pretty cool picture of large game handgun loads...



Personally, if I ever found myself having to outfit out in in ice bear country, I'd want the largest caliber rifle I could get my hands on as well as have a sidearm in a caliber that started with a 4.

Pinky, with respect to your considerable paper and bird killing skills, you once claimed a 9mm was an effective bear gun, since it was all about shot placement. Generally, you get less than 50 yards on a charging bear, and aiming in that situation is an awful lot like trying to hit the conductor of a moving freight train while standing on the tracks.

I think chad's advice is pretty good. I might consider something like the M14 (provided you can get it) because followup shots are faster, but bear spray works on grizzlies and other browns, so its worth a shot on polar bears, provided you've got somebody to fire the real gun too.

In all seriousness what is the largest animal that you'e taken down with a well placed shot? What caliber and firearm where you using? What distance where you from the animal? Finally was the animal moving?

I for one have little experience with anything larger than a moose and one poor habituated and aggressive black bear. :(

This wild pig was the largest animal I've shot (approx 45 Kilos). Range was approximately 40 yards, trotting left to right. It was taken down with a 12 guage slug fired from my Mossy 930 SPX. I used my G23 sidearm for the appropriate coup de grâce shot at point blank range.

She fed many friends and family and the meat was sweet and delicious due to an abundance of acorns that year.

Anyway, I was thinking why not open up this thread to other cool stuff, too. Stuff I know even the most dyed-in-the-wool liberal has use for in the outdoors: a good knife.

I've owned lots of nice pocket knives over the years. I think I may have been presented with my first folding knife as a nine year old when I was in the Cub Scouts. A few years later, I remember buying my first Buck knife, the model 110 folder (a real classic). Most of the folders I currently own are SOG, Buck, Gerber, Kershaw and of course, the Leatherman Wave multi-tool. However, the past couple of years I've begun accumulating a nice collection of handcrafted, custom fixed blade knives.

There is a bit of a knife making Renaissance currently happening in the US. I wasn't aware of this until I began placing orders for certain knives and had to wait months because of the backlog of commissions some popular knife makers are experiencing. The wait was certainly worth it though. The pride of owning a personally crafted knife and one that will last a lifetime is something any outdoors person will appreciate.

For every day carry (EDC), this little beauty has become my go to knife of choice. I splurged and had a knife made of S30V (a Vanadium alloy) steel forged and shaped down from a 1/8" thickness with rag micarta scales custom made by C.T. Fischer out of Elk City, ID.

It's a well balanced 3" blade with an overall length of 6-3/4". It's highly corrosion resistant; it's quickly accessible from the kydex sheath dangling from my neck and it weighs in at under 5oz sheathed. It's not a wonder that it's become my go to knife for every day carry. I do a lot of fishing in a salt water environment and with minimal maintenance, I've had zero rust issues. It hones to a razor edge and holds that edge very well.

Best of all, unlike a folder, it will never fail you at a pivot point under maximum stress.

Here are a few pics...

I don't carry in the woods. In fact, was out today in bear and cougar country sans weapon. Have seen cougar there, bear tracks in vicinity previously. It's much more interesting without anyway and that shit is not needed or wanted. Have plenty of pieces if I wanted to carry, but prefer to not. On occasion I'll haul a few out for a combo climbing/shooting trip, but find that shooting goes to shit when exhausted at the end of the day:-)

That is a VERY nice collection of firearms, sir!Shocked

I too am sending out my CZ75 to Angus for a trigger job. Have you put a gauge on and, if so, what does it break at now? What about the travel and creep?

A buddy of mine has that same Panther Arms .308. It's a beautiful rifle. He brought it out on the same hunt I killed my pig with. It was a bit over the top, though. He ended up ruining a perfectly good pork shoulder. In the sense that it was gone...completely GONE on the exit wound side of the pig. It was a much cleaner kill than mine was though.

Pinky shooting at an approaching bear.

Depends on the bear. Koala bear, black bear, Kodiak, or Grizzly?

Pinky would say that he could do the same thing with a .22 long as it's all about shot placement. Tongue

This happened last week here in Central Florida. Here's the story and the surveillance video:

[71 YO] Customer stops stick-up at Ocala Internet cafe

It's a classic example of a responsible citizen thwarting a couple of gangsta wannabees with his own legally concealed firearm. A .380, nonetheless! It looks like the Ruger LCP I usually have on me.

Excessive force IMO. Shooting an unarmed attempted-thief in the back while he´s running away may be a natural reaction, but it´s a slippery slope, legally.

I respectfully disagree. Those idiots had everything coming to them they got. They got off very lucky, actually (lead in the ass of one and a flesh wound on the arm of the other).

After reviewing the evidence, the Marion County Sheriff's Office felt that Mr. Williams used justifiable force and would face no charges.

Thanks for disagreeing respectfully. Cool

In any case, the one lesson I got from that attempted robbery was that a .380 isn´t enough to stop an attack quickly. Guess a shotgun is the way to go for me.

A long gun is great for home/auto defense and I highly recommend one for such purposes, but it's difficult to carry as a concealed firearm. Nobody will even know you're carrying the .380 (though my .40 cal G23 is my preferred carry gun when I can comfortably do so.)

Also, remember: it's all about shot placement...I'm sure even that poseur chad will wholeheartedly agree with that!

But, who knows, maybe the old timer actually was shooting at their ass...LOL.

Saw this on another site http://kyleroyerknives.com/. Damn that man can make a great knife (watched his videos... exhausting process but after he´s done forging and grinding he chops a couple of 2x4s with the knives and can still shave the hair off of his arms with ´em).

Somebody speaking up to the police about how weird their friend/neighbor was acting might have also prevented that tragedy.

I suppose it is possible that a single armed person like yourself carrying say a .380 auto (your professed carry weapon) with a spare mag (16 rounds), night sights, and a tac light (assuming best case scenario) could take down a man with full body armor, six firearms, 300+ rounds of ammo in a dark, smoke filled, crowded theater before more than one or two people where shot.

I suppose a person could be close enough to overcome the 20 yard effective range of your carry weapon to deliver a well placed triple tap the the attackers head without drawing attention to yourself and getting shot.

Then again neither of us has EVER been in a situation like this and can't have any idea what it would be like so I suppose it could be possible however unlikely that one person with a concealed weapon could of stopped this from happening. It dose seem pretty damn unlikely though.

Of course, because having more people shooting in that scenario would certainly have eliminated injuries.

The established facts are endless. That means I can go on and on.

Keep in mind, this fecking disturbed, cowardly individual immediately and meekly surrendered when met with equal force. There's no doubt in my mind that the outcome may have been different had he met one or two shooters firing back at him.

I don't disagree with the info you linked (I do however have to consider the slant by the 'publisher' of that data). However there is NOTHING in that list of information about a CCP stopping a mass public shooting.


In fact the results of this study as shown in the linked video actually show that having a firearm in a group shooting situation is of little help.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QjZY3WiO9s

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rLN6_s66wTg


Oh and pinky I think it odd that you feel the need to constantly try and show that you're the real deal when it comes to firearms and the use of deadly force. You also have a peculiar obsession with me and trying to discredit my experiences with firearms.

What's even more odd is that for some reason you think that by showing pictures of your firearms, animals you've shot, and paper targets you've hit make you an authority on the subject. Unsure

Edit to add:

I understand that it's comforting to think that carrying a firearm we as a people have a means to stop such a tragedy. However none of us where there and as such all we can to is speculate. All we can do is post options, nothing more.

I have to admit considerable surprise that nobody in the audience was carrying. This is the suburbs of Denver we're talking about, which is just a notch below Phoenix in terms of affluent white people packing heat. When I lived in Highlands Ranch, I passed 3 vehicles with "I don't call 911" bumper stickers in the 1/10 of a mile it took for me to go from my sister's house to a road not lined with houses, on my way to work every day.

Aurora is not much different, although it is a bit less affluent, so the desire to have a self-defense firearm is a bit more justifiable.

What I infer from the total absence of shooters in the audience is that (1) there were no people with CCW permits in the audience, (2) the people with CCW permits weren't carrying, or (3) the people carrying in the audience did not return fire.

2 or 3 seem most likely, and as chad pointed out, it would take some kind of handgun expert with ice water for blood to successfully take this guy down without loss of life.

I find 1 to be almost impossibly unlikely unless the Columbine graduates, or friends of Columbine graduates, or relatives of Columbine graduates in the audience decided that guns in their house were far more dangerous than the odd psychopath at the movies.

Not so.

You've stated several times to carrying in a 'gun free zone' simply because it was your right to do so.

Based on Aurora's population and number of CCP issued their should have been at least 2 people in the theater that could carry legally. As petsfed stated and you've reinforced their is a pretty good chance that people would ignore the 'no weapons' sign on the front door.


Population of Aurora: 325,078
CCP issued for Auroar: 4,803
Number of people in theater: 150

Not sure about the AR-15 you have/don't have/plan to have/or won't ever have, but I'm picking off clays set into the berm at 100 yards with iron sights pretty damn consistently. With the right load and optics, it would also do fine in the field on medium to medium large sized game.

I will grant you that I won't use it for the defense of my home, though. But that's only because, living in a condo, I have far more "neighbor friendly" firearms that are unlikely to injure the innocent.

However, if I lived in a rural setting with the accompanying population density, my Colt AR-15 would make a perfectly acceptable home defense firearm.

Yep, just a little bit more balls than it does to come into a place wearing a St. Tray hoodie and packing a .45 expecting an easy score on a defenseless crowd.

I've shot plenty of 5.56mm / .223 AR's. I probably run around 10,000 rounds through over a dozen models and configurations of the AR platform.

Just because you can hit clay's at a 100 yards with it doesn't make it a good target rifle. I can easily do the same with a Ruger 10/22 with factory iron sights. Generally the firearm is always way more accurate than the shooter.

As for the AR's use as hunting rifle that's a personal choice. I'm a very good shot and wouldn't try to hunt anything larger than say a coyote with a 5.56mm / .223. I just don't think the round has the energy and penetration to take down anything larger cleanly. I'm sure you'll bring up shot placement yet again but think for a moment if you'd try and take down that pig you posted up pics of with a 5.56mm / .223. That pig is for certain medium sized game.


Finally you completely misinterpreted my comment about the usefulness of the AR platform in a home defense situation. It's not the round that is the problem, it's the configuration, weapon length, and ear drum rupturing report of the AR platform. Sure the AR platform can be very useful but it takes a lot of training and money to build and learn to use one well for home defense. (That's why I don't own one)


Now the 5.56mm / .223 round can works very well against unarmored personnel. The round performs better than 12 guage buckshot or a hollow point 9mm in the categories of effective range, energy transfer, wound channel size, cavition, and not over penetrating the target.

Funny that you say that to a man who's served in the military and been in combat.

Wait a minute, how does your shooting holes in paper targets give you the authority and experience to pass judgement on doc's level of bravery in combat?

Because "being in the miitary" has apparently not made him much brighter.

You'd better check your glucose level chaddy, 'cause almost all of your posts in this thread would lead one to believe you need to either drink a glass of orange juice, or give yourself a shot of insulin immediately.

Hell that video of sung shooting that .38 showed that he's a better shot than you. No offense to sung but that's pretty bad pinky. Crazy

Pinky will now get buthurt and start calling me names, asking for me to post pictures of things I've shot, ect.

For those that have missed the obvious, I'm questioning his poor tactical evaluation of a lethal situation that was handled quite well by the old timer.

You know, pinky? I actually agree with you on one point. My former service gives me little credibility in discussions of tactical wankery. All I ever did was violently oppress the population of a small portion of the population of a global-south nation during my time as an occupier. If you want to draw the analogy to the recent colorado tragedy, I was the guy with the assault rifle, body armor, and arsenal, and they were the movie-goers. It really lends me no credence to discuss what I would do if I were armed, old and obese, and some black kid with a gun was running away from me.

I was analyzing the situation in a way that you may be unfamiliar with: the ethical framework. Was it ethical for captain vigilantepants to shoot the other guy in the back while he was running away by calling it a defense of property? I don't think so. Was captain vigilantepants justified in unilaterally taking a human life when his was no longer threatened? Is it a miscarriage of justice that he is not in prison?

What you and your fellow idiotic right wing thugs do while discussing these situations is masturbation. The images you post are lolcats for people with a misguided hero complex, and by endlessly monday-morning-quarterbacking these situations, you attempt to justify your inherent racism, classism, misogynism, and violence fetishism. I'm sure you and your fellow troglodytes are glued to fox news, waiting for any break in the news of the tragedy in colorado; it allows you to primp your petty ego with statements to the effect of "If only me and my trusty schlong extender with 15 round magazine were in that (insert site of recent horrific tragedy), stuff woulda been different."

Try not to cum on your keyboard.

my favorite, started as a Walmart Special, Ruger 10-22. The scope is the only compromise item, that's a TacSol steel sleeved aluminum bull barrel, very accurate. It is not polished in this shot but still looks nice. A left hand safety, adjustable trigger, extended magazine release, ...

Nice. I like the laminated camo stock. This is a classic 22lr rifle. I put down a deposit on my own just last week. I'm getting the Takedown model. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Here's a short youtube review on it:

Oh I like that take-down model! Trad gear is where my 'extra' money is going now but I will get one of these sooner or later. Especially like the soft case as a rest.

The Ruger 25 round mag is surprise, a good one too. I've got a Butler Creek Steel Lips and a less expensive (Eagle I think) mag too. One of these will get shipped to me more sooner than later.

I'll post up my stock 10-22 that is a 200th year of American Liberty addition. That is stored at my Dad's for safe keeping. My Mk 2 pistol is not here with me either as I live in a handgun control state for now.

Glad you like my 'green' 10-22. thanks

Ah, Ebay.

Thanks but no thanks. I can get the same firearm here in town for $35 more. I'm sure the Ebay firearm is top notch but I'd rather support my local gun shop.

Again thanks for the heads up though!

You can't buy firearms on ebay. NITB, just means NITB wherever.

Ah, see I thought is was an online site so I Googled it and NITB is an acronym used on Ebay, almost exclusively it seems.

If I ever do get an AR platform it will be a DPMS as they're made in St. Paul MN, cost right around $800, and have had great product reviews for the past five years or so.

First I'm going to replace the extractor on my 10/22 (wore the old one out) and pick up a 870 shotgun.

This is an excellent example of how the vast majority of concealed carry permit owners defuse potentially lethal encounters on a daily basis. These are the kind stories you won't hear about in the media...

Or you could just not drive like an asshole and not "indicated that I was there" when you can't merge. Say instead you merge in plenty of distance before and if someone is in your way you back up and let them go first. Much easier, safer, and better for society.

I agree, that part is probably the most questionable but unless you were there to witness it yourself, or have ever experienced the traffic around Orlando, I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt.

However, even if he did pull a douche move, don't you think the truck driver's reaction was a bit over-the-top-scary?

Personally, I try to cede the right of way in a merge situation, but I've been in fast changing traffic situations where I've had to deal with the impolite person in the lane you need to merge into. But I've never had to deal with the situ in the vid and I hope I never have to. The point being was that the very potentially violent situation was diffused by merely producing the weapon in a very confident, responsible manner. Most encounters with bad guys and firearms end this way. Those are the profound majority of the cases.

On another note, I found this excellent reference on the Well Armed Woman site. It's perfect for the ladies here interested (especially chad): Racking The Slide

Well then be a good Christian and buy if or me will ya?


Edit:

Also will you pick me up the flip up front and rear ghost ring sights too? I mean that model of DPMS has no sights so I kind of need 'em. They're only around $180 for a decent set.

Regarding these last two images:
1) If brass is already 2 inches out as the bullet leaves the barrel, your slide must be made of balsa wood, and presumably the barrel isn't locked in any way, otherwise unlocking would occur before the bullet left the gun, rendering accurate shooting impossible.

2) That signs translates to "I believe my neighbors deserve a violent home invasion because they peacefully and legally disagree with my beliefs about the role of firearms in our society"

Pink, you may find it funny, but I find it reprehensible.

The reality is, guns are only deadly when used for their intended purpose."

my favorite, started as a Walmart Special, Ruger 10-22. The scope is the only compromise item, that's a TacSol steel sleeved aluminum bull barrel, very accurate. It is not polished in this shot but still looks nice. A left hand safety, adjustable trigger, extended magazine release, ...



Way to pull out a win for the thread! Starting to head downhill with a lack of pictures. Walmart special my ass. Looks like you somehow managed to pull out all of the "Walmart" and just left the special. Lefty eh? Me too. That's a 10/22 to put up on a rack and not in a safe if you could trust people. Bet it's crazy accurate as well.

BTW, sorry to be back on the thread so late. Didn't see your question upthread. The pull on the CZ Tactical Sport up there is exactly 3lbs and so sweet. It needs practice however, and people who fire it for the first time often put a round in the dirt as they are bringing it up just situating their finger on the trigger. Or bringing down. Regardless, it's safe as I mostly restrict shooting to the range so as to minimize spraying toxic metals around in the wilderness. My range periodically mines the berms for lead/copper bullets which they recycle. Besides, if I'm in the woods I'm climbing, and the range is 20 min from work and I can shoot on my lunch hour and save gas as well.

that pink AR up thread reminds me that the dudes around here are doing Kalashnikov kitty t-shirts. LOL

Honestly, I consider it mostly a fun accessory. I probably wouldn't have bought it except the shop was selling gun and sight as a package, $100 cheaper than the total retail for both.

It's not a real precise sight because you can push firmly left or right on the nose of it and get it slightly out of alignment. I think that's to be expected, I mean precision isn't really the point anyway, right? If I ever actually point the thing at someone I would hope it acts to increase the deterence, like the sound of a 12ga racking. You know, fear the red dot! It's good enough for that.

Makes a good cat toy too, once the girlfriend has figured out you're not actually trying to shoot her cat (tempting as that may be). Protip: introduce her to the fact that your Laserguard makes a nice toy beforehand, don't let her first encounter with this concept be walking through the door to find you pointing your gun at Fluffy.

I already had a Blackhawk nylon hip holster, size 7, that I used to holster a Beretta 96D until I got a Serpa for that one - it fits nicely in it. Not my favorite holster, but this is mostly my glovebox weapon, so the holster is really just to protect my nice new Glock from scratches.

Sweet. I love the G19. I had to borrow a friend's after my CZ failed during an IDPA classifier and actually shot well enough with it (never even having used one before) to move up in classification. I was definitely impressed. It's very ergonomic.

I just ordered one of these Primary Arms micro-dot sights:



For this, my shiny new Ruger 10/22 Take-down (a real, honest-to-gawd workhorse!):



The 2 25 round mags were extra...just ordered a couple more of those, too.

Plinking fun, plinking fun!

Gawd, I <3 this country

I have a 20 year old Ruger 10/22 that I added an Axiom adjustable stock, single point sling, and TruGlow green/red dot sight to. I have a few of the newer 25 round mags, a handful of the 10 round rotary mags.

Fun to shoot and nice to carry around the field when hunting small game (rabbit, grouse, and the occasional rodent nuisance).

I'm actively looking for an old beater of a 10/22. Once I get one, it's gonna be my bench gun project for 2013. By the time I finish, it's gonna be a one-holer!

In the meantime, my current "little" project will be similar to this derringer in a book:



I'm picking up this little cutie next week when it arrives at my LGS (put the deposit on it yesterday) a mini-revolver in .22 Magnum:



If nothing else, it'll make a great little snake gun when loaded with this:

I don't think you know what pedigree means, unless you are trying to imply that your Mini 14 was somehow a product of THAT weapon in the photo.

Aside from that, hmmm... picture of a guy, in a snow-covered forest, "hunting for a fugitive" (presumably an activity that took more than 5 min) without wearing a warm jacket or a hat...

Yeah, really smart guy... or a really staged photo. Whatever he is doing, everyone else should, also.

Well Lena the if the officer in the picture is like any of the others I know who work in cold climates probably wearing:

Meduim to thick base layer
Bullet proof vest
Fleece lined softshell jacket


Those three in combination are very, very warm. Heck the bullet proof vest is warm to the point of being hot, even in winter.

As for the hat I can't say I'd want to be out without one but he could have one but not wearing it in an attempt to regulate is core temp because he was moving around a lot. I mean it's not like he can take off outer layers while in the field. I know a lot of officers will stuff a wool cap into the breast pocket of their outer jacket when not in use.

It doesn't look like he is wearing a soft-shell top layer. More like regular uniform fabric. But fair enough. I guess the cold weather I am thinking of is not the California cold weather.

I picture officers dressed for winter looking more like this:

I don't think that English was your first language (it wasn't mine either.) However, here's a heads up: a "pedigree" doesn't always have to be biological. In a broader sense, it can mean the history of something.

I hope that helps.

Love the folding stock for its tacticool looks, but it just would not be very practical for anything other than CQC where a good cheek weld might not be so necessary.

Thankfully, the load that pinky just blew has successfully removed more of his chromosome from any danger of entering the gene pool.
