    good lord, my browser opened to that photo and my first thought was that someone posted a shot of their nipple!! I was having super bowl flashbacks.

    :what:

    whew! that was close.

    anyone want to see the scratch I got on my thumb from the stainless s&w .44 mag?

    :rolleyes:

    oh yeah, I'm single, although my current girlfriend doesn't think it's a permanent condition.

    Hey Steve...I will be in as soon as my new speedfeed pistol grip/full stock arrives in the mail. I strongly suggest that if you want to do some "tactical" stuff with that thing that you get what is comfortable for you. From meeting you with your size and build I would suggest a short stock speed feed pistol gripper, you're about the same size as me. I believe it has about a 13 inch LOP with the pad on it... (yes you will need that). The full size is 14 inches...which is a little long for guys our size to do a proper chest mount "at the ready, low".

    I might go as soon as this Sunday. Let me know.

    Man this thread is speeding along nicely. Can't blink or nod off or too long.

    I will be happy to pitch in for the web site idea if it remains feasible as we continue to meet.

    I love the land idea too. That would be a dream come true. There would be so much more to do than shoot at paper. I would imagine we would have to have a few more folks to fund such an investment.

    I have a lot to learn so I'm looking forward to any training exchange.

    Alduro your accuracy with my cz 97b impressed me. Maybe I could get some pointers from you next time or if I run into you at the Shooting Gallary.

    My God! What a sight to open up to. I too though it was a spare nipple of some kind.....You don't have any "golden guns", do you? :)

    AHHHH CRAP!!!! The Saiga's are back order everywhere. Looks like I'll be riding an SKS to the range. Poor man's Dragunov.:D

    Hey Nimare.....the 97 .45 you have is just a natural fit for my hand. I am a HUGE CZ fan. HUGE dude, but I have to stick with one platform, I only have a Beretta cause I stole it at the price I got it.

    I would love to give you some pointers on shooting handguns...but Techbrute was no slouch either...aside from limpwristing a Pro so bad it FTF.:D

    I use a both eyes open approach to shooting handguns. It helps to relax your vision so that you are not predisposed to distort your target/sights combo. Works for me, it was one of the things we learned doing the combat pistol training. The logic was that in an actual fight you're going to be so scared that BOTH eyes will be open, so learn to shoot like that. It's funky at first, but once you learn it and see how fast and accurate you can be, you'll never go back.

    Steve....I forgot to drop those pictures by....DOH:cuss:




    RKBA "Right to Kick Butt A##hole"...? close enough right?

    I'll try to get them by tomorrow morning though, I may not be able to though because I am picking up my marriage license tomorrow.:uhoh::evil:

    I'll have to say that not many people accuse me of being limpwristed. It's probably due to the chesthair... or my redneck pickup truck... or the Colt Anaconda... :D I really enjoyed that Pro, though. I may decide to pick one up eventually, but I need to finish my rifle projects first.

    The countdown begins... your days are numbered.:neener: :evil:

    I'm going to be heading to Military Antiques in the next few days to pick up a G3 or Cetme. Is there a waiting period for rifles in Texas? I haven't bought a gun through a shop in Texas in 10 years or more...

    Nope no waiting period. Hey Techbrute...you never sent that info regarding what to look for in a CEMTE.....by the way...from what I'm told, get the one with the wood furniture because it has a stainless reciever.

    And the crowd falls hush at the awsome wisdom of Alduro.....:rolleyes:

    That is the extent of what I know about them. DON'T TELL THEM YOUR FROM KALI....they'll charge DOUBLE:D

    Sorry I missed the range day. Too much travel- family stuff. I'll try to be there next time and bring the FAL and other toys...certainly the M44 if it's a rifle party.

    CZ97? I wanna play! I'm anxious to hear all the upside/downside to them.

    Regards,
    Rabbit.

    alduro, if you can, drop off the pics. I will be here from 9-12 today (Wed) and from 12-8 on Thursday.

    Sorry to here about your Saiga saga....

    You can wear out my SKS next time along with the M44.

    Well, I really like my Russian with the Bayo on it. Ideally, I would have this SKS and one that I could trick out a bit. Dressed in black, bi-pod, etc...

    Before you buy that thing...remember, my C&R license will be coming soon...

    Alduro - My C&R is already here. Aim and SOG have it on file - I'd be happy to help out in the meantime. BTW, I have one of the unissued Yugo SKS's gathering dust if you'd like to give it a test drive before ordering.

    aguyindallas - Yipes! Nice pic you posted. I'm betting that bruise has turned all kinds of nifty colors since monday. I don't know what's going on with the old girl - the Rigby has never behaved that badly before. I'll make sure to bring her along to the next shoot - a little quality time together and I'm sure y'awl will make up.

    Techbrute - thanks for the turn with the Anaconda - I guess I'll just toss the rest of that PMC .44 - gotta be the ammo if we both got stuck cases. I don't get it - I keep reading threads with people claiming tens of thousands of rounds of every kind of ammo made with no grief and I get S&B 7.62X25 spitting primers, a 9mm squib from MagTech and now .44 PMC cases from hell inside six months :(

    Cheers!

    Yeah, I've always had good luck with PMC, as a matter of fact, that's the only brand of ammo I've ever put through that gun.:confused:

    My C&R is still about a month away is my best guess...you know how fast the ATF is...NOT AT ALL! I should have never let it expire! Hawk, I will want to talk to you about where you are buying C&R from when the time comes.

    for the guys who've gotten their C&Rs already, about how long did it take? I sent mine in about two weeks ago.

    Steve,
    Sorry so long in my response! :eek: I've been in St Louis since Monday, traveleing with my Californian, vegetarian, liberal, anti-gun boss...:rolleyes: Yikes.

    Anyway, here's a link to the website:

    http://www.lifelibertyetc.com/

    The latest addition is the new "Molon Labe" bumper stickers. Very cool! That's also where I got my Molon Labe cap.

    I haven't forgotten to get some info for a good rifle class. Now that I've ditched my boss, I'll get back on track and hopefully have some news for y'all soon. geegee

    geegee.....I thought you were looking into a "handgun" class. Was it rifles?

    Sylvilagus Aquaticus,

    Sorry you could not make it. I was looking forward to putting a face with the name.

    The 97b be is very nice if the grip is not too big for your hands. It is for some folks but Alduro and I compared it to his Barretta 92 and didn't see much difference. Very comfortable and thus easier to be accurate with if you do everything right. The frame is full length - makes for a prettier gun and also acts a sort of a compensator making the recoil a lot less. Can't beat the 10 +1 capacity in .45 ACP either.

    On the down side...most folks will say it is under sprung and go with a higher lbs. wolf spring which I need to do also. Some reshape and polish the feed ramp to eliminate problems with feeding jhp's as I have also done.

    I hope to make it at the next shoot and let more folks shoot it.


    Guys,

    What is "C & R", what does it allow you to do?

    I've been working hard on my wife to help her understand the absolute nessecity of adding a rifle to my 2 handgun collection as I have a birthday coming up in a week but haven't gotten to far yet.

    I've been looking for an AK or SKS.

    Nik
