    Mini 30 Magazines - Which ones?

    When I bought my Mini I found a Pawn Shop/Gun Store in my town that had about 40 Ruger mags of varying capacities (up to 30 rounds) and had them reasonably priced ($30 each if I remember correctly) and as advised above, they work great. Maybe look around a little, but not on the internet.

    Beginnings with 22 LR

    When my brothers and I were young 60 or so years ago we had 2 - .22 rifles at our disposal, an old Winchester pump and a Remington bolt action. We shot the crap out of them and never cleaned them at all as much as I can remember. My brother still has them and while the Winchester's bolt is loose...

    What did I buy?

    The only negative thing I can see is that the barrel must be pinned as I don't see a wedge. Having a single wedge Hawken style makes cleaning a lot easier than having 8 or 9 individual pins like my Brown Bess. What a pain. Even with that it looks like you got a deal.

    Please help identify antique guns

    If you remove the forearm piece from the double barrel shot gun there should be some identification information under the barrels.

    Swivel Guns ... oooohhhhhh, Mongo like!

    There is the remains of a breech loading cannon from an old Spanish ship in the museum at Grand Turk that looks very similar, only it was about 6' long.

    Kibler range report

    Interesting that you got left to right movement with the charge increase. Don't pay any attention to the peanut gallery, I like to use the commercial round cleaning patches for shooting patches when I am just fooling around. They are cheap, convenient, and work just fine.

    Diana Oktoberfest Gewehr had unexpected benefits.

    Is it spring or air powered? Years ago I bought a Crossman Pellet pistol to dispatch the rabbits that were using my garden as a buffet line so I put a target on a piece of hardboard and hung it on my fence for target practice. The first pellet I fired hit the bull dead center and ricocheted...

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    The gang of four made a commitment to change Colorado's politics and financed it. The group included the current governor and Pat Stryker who inherited billions.

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    I don't know where any of you came up with the misdemeanor idea, all I can find about punishment for buying or selling anything in the defined or named weapons is this: The bill defines the term "assault weapon" and prohibits a person from manufacturing, importing, purchasing, selling, offering...

    A visit to a gun store in the Czech Republic.

    Nobody understands the importance of our Second Amendment better than those who have lived under tyrants or Marxist regimes. My wife and I once shared a dinner table on a cruise ship with a woman who had left the former Soviet Union and came to America before President Obama was elected. She...

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    Congress shall make no law.... I think that would also apply to state legislatures. Update: I just spoke with my Representative and he believes the Governor is pressuring the Senate to kill the bill so he doesn't have to take a stand either against the bill, potentially angering his rabid...

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    One of those good/bad things happened last week when an Obama appointed federal judge in Chicago ruled that illegal immigrants also have Second Amendment rights so they can protect themselves from criminals. It amazed me that she ruled that an illegal has Second Amendment rights but the law says...

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    The one small hope we have is that the Governor will not sign it as he has aspirations of running for POTUS in the future and total gun bans won't float an electoral college majority.

    Colorado Weapons Ban

    This is the result of one party rule for too many years. Elections have consequences and when ignorant people who believe they have the power of God get control of all 4 levers of government (including the Supreme Court of Colorado) unconstitutional tyranny happens.

    Kibler range report

    Were you standing or using a rest? How was cleaning, not too bad? It will be interesting to see what it does at 100 yards when you get the opportunity to shoot without rain.

    Fifteen years, success, sort of

    All 788's are forgotten treasures that the "experts" all dissed as being a "weak bolt design" when they came out. I have 4 of them including a 6 mm that I bought brandy new in 1973. They are tack drivers, the only shortcoming is the lack of affordable magazines.

    Improved M1 Carbine (update)

    You can bust on the .30 carbine round all day but I have fired them ((FMJ) through the tailgate of a steel pickup tailgate from a Ruger Super Blackhawk when a .45 round (FMJ) just made a dent.
