    ^^This. Believe it or not, I have a Simmons cheapo from Walmart, under $100 new, that has about a 600 yard rated range and seems to be perfectly accurate out to at least that distance on any known object I've tried. I bought it before the darned things recognized angles, and a new one that...

    They will never stop!

    Somebody tell me if I'm wrong, but as I'm reading this new plan, it seems like blowback pistol caliber AR's like 9mm's would be exempt. Can any rifle calibers be made/redesigned into safe and comfortable-to-shoot (recoil-wise) rifles? 300BO for instance?

    StreamLight, OLight or SureFire

    This is going to sound naive and stupid to many, but I ran across the VOTATU lights and lasers on Amazon and have been fairly pleased by the quality of the aluminum bodied ones I've tried. I have this pistol light, 800 lumens, now on a QD mount, and it's good quality and has held up so far...

    Black Friday 2023

    Two days ago, Academy nearby had their Blazer 115 grain on sale for $11 something/box. That's the best 9mm deal I've seen in forever.

    I feel ya. I was also okay until Midway offered a Vortex CrossFire II 2X7 at $103...and I caved.

    Lets see your gun library!

    If you looked, at least for awhile, it was available as a pdf on the net. Try searching for the Paladin Press Archive. And that's as close as I'll go to claiming the $5....

    Ciener Conversions closes.

    Years ago I had a Beretta 92 conversion kit, wasn't that fond of it, particularly in the accuracy dept. and sold it.

    Braced Pistol stamp Watch Thread

    Care to explain? Whether or not the braces are banned, if your lower is now SBR'ed by courtesy of the ATF, it can be legally stocked.

    Which is more VERSATILE: An AR-15 in 6.5 Grendel, or an AR-10 in .308?

    The Grendel will be lighter and more mobile. And if you reload, what do you care if it's popular in 10 years. The 6.5 Grendel may not be popular then, but 123 grain bullets will still be available. As will 7.62X39 brass to convert!

    mighty tempting

    You can get over $300 for that Bobcat online in almost any condition. I have several and have been offered over $400 to part with one. And exactly how does one "wear out" a Bobcat, anyway? They're pretty durable little 22lr's.

    Quick Detach Scope Rings

    Warne QD are good rings. I have them on several rifles and they hold zero....but I mark which rail slots they fit into so I can return them to the same position and then I tighten them down with rear pressure in those slots so their placement is as consistent as possible

    Halloween night movies make me so angry

    Yeah, I was 18ish and saw it in the attic of my freshman dorm where they used to hang a sheet and show movies.

    "club match" .22 ammos

    I’m a third on the CCI Standard as my base round for modest accuracy. Mostly $50 a brick here but I saw it online today for $40 at PSA

    MikeinOR, how do you like that stock? I have one that unfolds straight and one that unfolds angled and like the former better.

    AR charging handle options?

    I'm a lefty...and own a whole bunch of ambidextrous charging handles of various types. I know many swear by the Raptor brand but at $80-$100, but I can't justify them. Most recently I've bought these and yeah, they're probably inferior but I still haven't broken one, so I can't tell that...

    Thermal targets?

    Well, today I tried B/W paper targets, a penny taped to one, X's with electrical tape and with aluminum duct tape. All pretty underwhelming for visibility. I'll try a pocket warmer next.

    .32 S&W Long advice & suggestions please

    Not much help here, but if you're switching powders and looking for a light load, I've loaded 32S&W long with 2.5 grains of Trailboss at an OAL of 1.175. 617 fps average. Like throwing BB's at a target!

    Happy 10/22 Day!!!

    Yea Gads, Bannockburn, for a minute I thought you had my 10/22! Even had a picture against a carpet like that. But then I remember that was it's old configuration in the Butler Creek folder that I still have but that stock is on nothing now, sitting on a shelf. Sometime about 5 years ago I...
