Re: Firearms price ranges

Also now that I think of it, what is involved in purchasing a firearm that is on Minnesota's SAMSAW list? If ordering from the manufacturer who confirms one's PtP or carry permit status, the seller or the FFL intermediary? The FFL when you do the paperwork. ??? So you don’t go through an FFL? I don...

Re: Firearms price ranges

To expand on what LarryFlew said about quality of parts - that can be things like chrome lined barrel, or not. Cheap plastic (or cheap wood even) handguards vs handguards that have some feature desired by the AK market - bulged or not, laminated or not, even the color or country of origin. What muzz...

NICs denial?

A relative just got a NICs denial yesterday. He's been away from guns a long time and way back when, was only a very light hunter. A couple months ago he got his MN carry permit and bought a pistol and passed NICs then. He tried to buy another gun yesterday and got denied. Any good links I can pass ...

Club lead removal?

Does anyone know how local clubs deal with lead removal? I don't think my club has a great process and I'd like to hear how others do it. Thinking outdoor lead removal from dirt and sand backstops, not trap ranges or indoor ranges. Mostly rifle and pistol bullets.

Thanks,

Re: 870 slug options

Not a deer hunter but my smoothbore 870 with ghost ring sights can do about 6" groups at 100 yards with the cheap Remington slugs. At deer rifle sight-in at my gun club, a good modern shotgun with optic can do 3-4" groups at 100 yards and likely better but the shooter is often the weak poi...

Re: Below The Radar: Background Check Completion Act of 2020

...Not sure how true, but I was told this was due to a ruling/decision that shifted the responsibility to the seller to retrieve the firearm in the event a "Denied" response came back after 3 days... I heard a local NFA dealer say the same thing - THEY were now responsible for retrieving ...

Re: Gun club application creates controversy near Courtland

After days of playing "Panda Pop" on my phone, I'm suddenly envisioning a real life version where you have to shoot different colored balloons from start to finish on a shooting course. Including not accidentally shooting any of the "You Lose" balloons next to the targets. I've ...

Re: bulk 5.56 case prep?

So, revisiting this. I got out my turret press for the first time on Saturday and deprimed and sized a few hundred rounds in under 45 minutes. It worked quite well and is obviously only part of case prep but got me thinking bulk case prep with multiple touches per case might not be that bad. I'm thi...

Re: Looking for a good 22LR pistol

There's a S&W 422 on Armslist right now for $325. I have the 6" version of that same gun. Always been very reliable, it was my first pistol from back in the late 80's. Those also make great suppressor hosts because the barrel is in the lower half of the front receiver (?) section, so seeing...

Re: bulk 5.56 case prep?

Here's what I do for case prep. Works very well for me. https://gunstreamer.com/embed/AKNLbWbdilRalCu That's great and close to what I was thinking, just a ton fancier. I see swageit.com has a 550b swager. I wonder if I could set up station 2 to deprime and the rotate backwards to station 1...

bulk 5.56 case prep?

I'm following the swaging thread closely. I have a similar need. I have a couple presses, a Dillon 550b that I've used pretty much only for pistol calibers and that works great and is very simple. Then my friend who sold it all to me showed the process for 5.56 and I got depressed at all the extra s...
