Re: Remington Asset Bid Revealed

I suspect the biggest reason for trying to acquire Remington’s ammo business is to increase their presence with running Lake City. They just lost the management to Winchester, and the feds rotate it amongst the big domestic ammo makers. DOD is where they make big bucks, so that is sensible. But if A...

Re: Army teaching poor rifle grip?

If he was in the marines, then that demonstrates it is possible to be an “ex marine” lol

Those guys take their rifle skills seriously.

Re: The violence extended to the suburbs.

Probably a graze type wound, without hitting the skull.

Given the current media, I’m surprised they didn’t call it a non life threatening injury and leave it at that.

It would help if all these major medical groups got rid of the anti gun policies for their employees.

Re: Unloved Handguns

The handgun that I probably think the least of is one that I got from my late uncle. He had rather eclectic tastes in guns, and as I’m the gun guy in my generation, and the executor was worried about them sitting around, I got the lot of them. So I paid $0. But, my uncle and shooting buddy died; so ...

Re: Body armor demonstration

I guess I’m not sure what rule of gun safety you are talking about violating... The gun is loaded. He knows that. He kept his finger off the trigger until on target. He is sure of the target and what is beyond. He is willing to destroy what it is aimed at... if his product doesn’t work. That’s the w...

Re: Afton considers limits on residents’ excessive gunfire

Consideration is a two way street. I have a near by guy who chronically complains about gunfire noise. He rides a Harley with straight pipes at night most days of the week. Only time I ever talked with the guy he didn’t see a contradiction in this- his bike is “a right” and my hunting is “narcissist...

Re: NRA Lockton Affinity Outdoors Firearms Insurance

I have certain guns (the ones I travel with mostly) insured with SAIA through a SCI related program. They work on replacement value basis, at what you mutually agree to in the case of unique or no longer made items. They will insure scopes, extra stocks, etc. and you are covered for loss regardless ...

Re: Club lead removal?

I had involvement way back when with a Trap club that had a company come out and basically mine the impact area. I’ve heard of (but no contact with) smaller ranges allowing members to mine a backstop for lead to cast. This was supposedly no money but the member repaired the backstop and got to keep ...

Re: 870 slug options

Firstly, if you are using foster or brenneke type slugs, you do not want or need a rifled barrel. That only improves things with the sabot slugs. I personally have been able to keep them on a pie plate at 65-70 yards. The sabots, in a rifled barrel are better... but even so, pie plate at 150. The fo...

Re: Primers, Powder, and 9mm

370 grain Northfork solids. They were superior ammo loads that Cabelas had. I did round the price up.

Re: Primers, Powder, and 9mm

I can think of one reason why. Never done it myself, but maybe I should. Back when I brought some ammo at Cabelas in Owatonna. .416 Rigby. This was like $20/ a round. I get home there are 18 rounds in the box. Turn around, drive back, with the receipt and tell them what happened. They point out thei...

Re: AR10 Hot Reload

Doesn’t look like it makes sense that way... If the bolt is locked in place, how does the gas escape without blowing the bolt and barrel extension apart before the bolt carrier and upper receiver? Any leaking would be through the ejector blowing out and the firing pin channel. I’m not seeing this as...

Re: Boot camp shooting course?

I am all for doing what you want... It remember that all it takes is one bad viral video to get the politically inclined busybody types to start a cause. Look at the s-storm Dr. Palmer caused hunting. (Cecil the Lion) The underlying act there was perfectly legal. If you decide to do it, keep it like...
