    Enfield Question

    "GRI" stands for "Georgius Rex Imperator" The rifle The Rifle factory at Ishapore was set up in the 1920's and started out building .303 caliber rifles. The .308/7.62 NATO rifles were built there post 1948 UNTIL 1956.

    The three rifle standing up thing...

    Some images for you... BTW: The Brits refer to it as a "piling" swivel. Stacking Swivel on M1 Garand. US Army Soldiers stacking their M1s. In the 19th Century, the bayonet served the purpose.

    Need Help in Figuring out the caliber of a rifle.

    The best story I've heard about the strength of the Arisaka action involves a 6.5mm rifle rechambered to 30-06 but retaining the 6.5mm bore. :what: First 2 rounds were hard to extract, 3rd locked it up tight. Gunsmith figured out the mistake. IIRC, the 6.5 Jap is approx .257, the .308 bullets...

    Civil War re-enactor shot.

    44 revolvers are rifled. I have never heard of a 44 cal. "musket". When I did ACW re-enacting, we always did a careful inspection of arms before each "battle" that included making sure no one had ANY live ammo AT ALL. We even went so far as removing the rammers from all rifles/muskets to ensure...

    NM ccw laws? (TX non-resident chl holder)

    I thought Texas wouldn't issue non-resident licenses to folks from States that issue a CHL that Texas honors. I was going to get a Texas CHL at one point, but then Tx. started honoring the NM CHL.

    What do EMTs do with your gun?

    I have never had an issue on a scene. When I was in EMT-I class, we had a LEO give a scene safety lecture. I made a point of speaking up and pointing out that NM has approx. 7K CHLs issued and that there are a lot of people that legally carry. The nice old shop keeper you're assessing for chest...

    Favorite WW2 Bolt Action Battle Rifle

    There were a lot of 1917s in the Philippines. In fact, the Japanese wound up using them after their supply lines were cut and they couldn't get enough ammo for their Arisakas.

    Never again. From my cold, dead hands.

    Jew "by choice" myself. Tried a LOT of other paths, finally found one that I could grok. I grew up around guns. Both my parents grew up around guns. My Father fought in WWII as a US Marine. My older brother was in RVN as a Marine. Shooting outings were a family affair. I just can NOT get my head...
