Keeping the muzzleloader with open sights kind of stays true to the traditional style of a black powder hunt. I absolutely HATE anything but iron sight precipitation. Actually yanked the scope off mine about 3 years ago after a snow/rain related snafu. Never regretted it but I keep nearly all my shots at 100 yds or less.

I’ve got my eye on Henry’s homesteader. Looks like a fun gun.

My patriot arms 50 cal. muzzleloader finally came in, set up w/peep sights. took almost a year to get it, lol. It is a pretty
gun w/walnut stock, will have to get it to the range this summer/fall and run some rounds thru it. My goal is to score a buck
w/it this season......

Tested my 45 Shield the other day with a friend's old hardball load for National Match shooting. A 200gr SWC with 5.7 gr of the old Herco Bullseye. VERY snappy on the wrist. Tested it at 25yds with a firm rest and my reading glasses so I could get a clean/crisp front sight. All shots were on call and it grouped pretty well.

He also gave me a big handful of these .452" booolits and I tested them with 4.8, 5.0 and 5.2gr of TiteGroup. The first group was disappointing as one shot steered right when the trigger broke. Good elevation...just that called shot out the right. The highest load began to show a bit of flattening on the primer and distinct bolt face impressions on the primer. Pressure is still safe, but I'll opt for the middle load as a safety buffer for high temps, etc. My sight picture is the top of both sights perfectly level and the tip of the front sight at 6 o'clock on the aiming black (pumpkin on a fence post) with bullet impact at the tip of the sight at 25yds.

According to my calcs, the rear sight must move .009" right to be perfectly centered. Will take the slide to a buddy who can secure it on his milling machine table and indicate the sight as he moves it. At 5-15 feet (where bad things happen), I wont be using the sights anyway...however, for general shooting, I like to be a bit an*l.

Huntfish, I was always using the Hornady Interlock spire point for whitetail. Great penetration and expansion. Have since switched to the SST once they hit the market. Again, great controlled expansion and penetration. A hit to the vitals will yield a short recovery time. One Buffalo County buck that dressed at 242# (that's right) was shot with a 129gr SST from a 6.5x06 at 20yds. Hit him dead broadside behind the shoulder, 1/3 the way up from the bottom. Had a golfball sized exit hole. He ran 40yds and went on his chin. Everything north of the diaphram was emulsified.

Not exactly new, but I've been able to get on the range recently with a CMMG 22lr adapter that I picked up last fall. It was tested in my 16" "Looter Shooter" at 50 yds. With a 100yd zero on the carbine using my 77BTHP load, the 22lr adapter impacts 3" low at 50yds using CCI Mini-Mag. Group for 10 shots was right at 3" dia. My friend is on the USAR rifle team and has printed groups right at 1 inch at 50yds using a specific lot of Tenex and Lapua match ammo. Problem is that neither loadings have the energy to cycle his rifle.My 3" group is plenty good enough for hitting steel targets and for use on the Echo target out to 50yds. 

The 22lr projectile is smaller than a 223/55 projectile and it cannot grab the rifling as well. Soooo, when you fire it in a 223/556 barrel you will never see stellar accuracy. My optic is a 3X prism sight from Primary Arms. It has allowed me to fire multiple 1 MOA groups from a solid support at 100yds using home rolled match ammo.

Found a Canik Mete MC9 for Summer carry. I always carry AIWB. Should be more comfortable to carry than my sub-compact CZ's. First striker fire for me.

Who all uses ballistic tips for their ammo? I've always used core lock tips most of my younger life until I purchased a WSM 7mm. Foresight, I bought enough boxes to keep me supplied years ago since you can't find it anymore. My experience with 140 gr ballistic tips have been far more exceeded than core locktips. Biggest buck ran 30 yards, while most drop instantly. I never get a pass through, but has not been needed. Core lock they always ran good distance before dropping.

Decided to go back to a 45. Why throw baseballs when you can throw bowling balls?

Ended up getting an M&P 2.0 Shield. My hand is closer to L size and it feels pretty good in my hand. The grip angle (for me) allows me to get on target naturally.The trigger pull is def shorter and more crisp than the trigger on my P365XL. The sights are very visible and easy to acquire. It's still a virgin, so I have no idea as to how good the sight register is and if it will cycle every time. Also got a Desantis Nemesis pocket holster to wear it between the skin and the pants at 4:30 to 5 o'clock for deep concealment. Feels secure and comfortable.

Want to get an AK(M) before we can’t. Thinking about Century Arms VSKA, will decide on furniture colors later. Reviews I have read lately are positive-Hickhoc .45 loved it. Have any of you guys got one made since they switched to American mfg last few years???
Would really like your feedback for or against. 
Don’t really want to drop a grand on the higher end ones. Bud’s-guns has the VSKA for under or right around $700 lately..
Also , if you have one, did it fire the much cheaper steel case ammo all right?

I've wanted a Marlin Model 60 .22 since I was 12 years old. I'm now 47. And today I finally got one!  I passed on one a couple months back at the local pawn shop because the barrel was rather rusty. When I stopped in last weekend to look around I noticed this one and thought "wow...didn't sell it yet." Then I looked closer and realized this one was in really good condition!
I know it's nothing special, but I'm a pretty happy guy knowing there's one more gun under my roof
