    Yeah I've been noticing a slight shift in tones since I first started coming here but, what can ya do? lol. And Today was a good day, Bought a Surefire 6P defender, 2 boxes of .35 Remington for the new (to me) Marlin 336SC and a box of CCI minimags to test out in my Savage Model 7. The Winchester hollowpoints were jamming instead of feeding properly. Mini-mags still get a little chewed up on feeding but they don't jam the bolt open.

    Getting myself ready for a long range trip on Sunday, ALOT of .22 Bringing a friend with me this time so I'm hoping for good weather lol

    I'm doing pretty good myself, been a busy day with school work. I have a statistics project due begining of april that I'm try to figure out how to do on guns, thinking I'll do it on group sizes with my 10/22 in regards to different types of ammo. not sure how to do it so I have two quantitative variables as opposed to catigoricaly ones. Asked the prof about it and he seemed excited about it.

    Interesting, rero369. Ammo type would seem at first to be a categorical variable. However, is there enough of a difference in price per round of the various types you used to make it a quantitative variable, so you could test the "you get what you pay for" issue? (There may be other ways to operationalize it quantitatively, but that one springs immediately to mind.)

    I'm seeing ways to deal with potential confounding variables (wind/weather, order effect with respect to brand, etc.). You could shoot on several different sessions with as near to identical weather conditions as possible, using the brands in different orders each time and averaging the groups to wash out barrel heating and/or operator fatigue effects. You could have a lot of fun with this.

    Can you tell I'm a doctoral student (in marketing, as it happens)? :p

    the testing will be done at the indoor range that I'm a member of so wind is a non issue, temp can be kept constant, or I can adjust the ambiant temp in increments to use that as a variable, and then use group sizes at the other variable, to see if ambiant temp has an effect on group size.

    Hey, I've got one of those, too. Jams perfectly. I thought it was a design feature.

    got a carcano recently, sporterized, has an old battlesite front site on it, set at about 300 yds. will have to go to the range, and use a steel file, and file the crap out of that rear site.
    Also got a couple of arisakas coming... notice a pattern? I am trying to get the mildest, mild mannered 6.5 mm rifle possible.

    Rangerruck if you get a 6.5mm blowgun you might have to put the Carcano away! ;)

    000Buckshot, since your asking...doing just fine. This week I used liquid steel to reinforce the recoil lug area on a 91/30 just to see how it works out. I also corked the stock. Reloaded a batch of .303brit and 45ACP.

    Been playing with three new rifles, an M1 Garand, 1903 Springfield, and a 98K. Going to shoot them at the range this weekend along with a Lee Enfield and my 1911!

    I thought it would be a fun project to refinish the stock on my favorite 22 rifle. I'm still trying to decide if that was a good idea or not...

    So much sanding!

    I'm stocking up on magazines, and have bought a gun or two that was on my "dream list". I'm good to go on AR stuff and M14 parts, but could still use a few more AK mags. What really hurts are the BM 59 mags at 75 bucks each!! Ouch!! :eek:

    Hopefully I'll get some more cash coming in soon. I've also been waiting for the right Costa Mesa AR-180 to come along. Unfortunately my ammo stash is thinner than I'd like it to be.

    balancing whether or not I should bring anything bigger than a .22 into my house at the risk of pissing off my parents. Also balancing whether or not I'll be able to afford it at this time.
