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.

So, post 'em up! Mine aren't studio shots. Who cares, this is the gun porn thread...the grittier, the better.

Perfect, post up! Just tag it NSFW to protect the libbies from getting their panties bunched up.

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



One of the original Colt AR-15's...



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.

I'm starting to think you don't actually use your firearms very much. More of a collector that likes to 'show off' what toys he has.

I do, it's just that I use it to take pictures of important things in my life, things I don't get to see everyday.

I see my firearms every day so why take pictures of them and show them around to the interweb?

You bet...it's nice to see the girls out at the range having fun, too.

Here's an interesting story: 'The largest collection of machine guns that we've ever run into'

Some vintage firearms there! That second one from the bottom is the same model Colt AR I posted pics of.

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.

One from my favorite youtube viddy subscription, "Range time with Cory & Erika"...

Erika shooting Serbu BFG-50A .50 BMG

I love how the slo-mo shows how the recoil rocks her down to her cute little toes.

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?
