Bought any guns lately? What did you buy?
Broke down and purchased a heritage single action .22. Looked at for a while and after taxes 138.00 for a gun that goes boom i bit. Only had time to test 6 shots but the first 2 at 15 feet about 1/2 inch away in the bottom of a can from each other. The other 4 hit the beer can fired rapidly as you can with a single action. It will be a fun plinker. Nothing fancy but I like this cheap thing.
Thanks SnakeSter. I need to aquire one myself, I got to ask the wife if I want to shoot it haha! They are a good time, I want to see what it does at 200 & 300 yards this summer. Yes, I'm a fair weather shooter although I'll fish in just about any weather.
Hey if you're happy with it then that's all that matters. After I built my second black rifle I shot one with a RRA match, I now own 3 of them. I recently got to put my finger on a Geissele SSA-E, and wow! My iron sighted ARs and red dot gun all use mil spec triggers and I find them to be fine but I found once you put glass on them a nice trigger really wakes em up.
As far as what to do with your red dot, I put my Aimpoint on my wife's pistol and let me tell ya, it became a frequent member of the range bag...
Edit: don't forget to support the Hearing Protection Act and the ATF white paper!
Steve @ G&S.... That's pretty interesting stuff you got there. I had to Google that, I like the retention of the 5.56 bolt and usgi spec magazine.
Do you reload? That could be a fun round to go 500+ with, might be a good windbuster. I think wildcats are awesome, though unfortunately they can get pricey.
I just aquired my first 6.8, flings 120gr SST @ 2500 fps. I'm excited to take it to Bambi and Wiley this year.
SnakeSter what are you using trigger wise?
Wack em, Just replaced my Sig Romeo5 Red Dot with a Leupold. What I love about it is a nice clear picture all the way up to max power. Love the warranty too. Will have to buy another gun for my Romeo5 or sell it. Let us know what you end up with Wack em. Just curious what others are using and their individual reviews of the equipment. We all learn that way.
Yes I did. Found a Hi-Pont C9
Like new condition. Heard so much controversy about them
Price was so low I bought it
Anyway. Went to the range very impressed.. Accurate and no problems.
Don't know about them being ugly as most of your are the same
There is not much beauty in poly frame pistol all black ...One man's opinion
I just built another .25/45 Sharps. It's an AR platform rifle what spits an 87 grain, .25 caliber bullet at 3,000 feet per second from a 20 inch barrel.
So I have an AR platform that I can use to effectively hunt deer with, in an under 9 pound package. This rifle is also my first with a lower that I milled out myself. It's working great so far.
I built one for a friend of mine last year. He used it last fall to kill an eight point buck at a laser ranged 311 yards with one shot.
I've looked at the both vortex scopes. Also Nikon, so far. Leaning towards the viper hs-t. I have always been happy w/ both brands! Both maybe looking into other optics? But either way I look forward to mounting that Ruger up with some sweet eyes and glass and testing the gun and myself.!
