  1. Hornet sting is the closest thing to being tased I've ever experienced!
  2. I live in a steel shop building so I get legions of fly. Bought my Bug-A-Salt at the local Cabelas last year. I don't get good results over 18 inches or so on Idaho flies, but it seriously F's em up at close range. Much preferred over the swatter!
  3. I'm happy to see this because I jumped on 1K rounds of this from SGammo.
  4. Nice vid, but I guarantee she wasn't doing those carrier ops. Air Force pilots don't do what Naval Aviators do.
  5. I'm an Appleseed instructor and went through a spell of building up several "Liberty Training Rifles" mostly based on Ruger 10/22s. The LTR needs to shoot 1/4 MOA pretty consistently and I was surprised at how much accuracy varies in each individual rifle ammo brand to brand. Eley match may shoot lights out in one rifle and shotgun out of another. CCI minimags are pretty consistent, but will vary rifle to rifle. You just have to find what your gun likes and try to find and stock up (pretty frustrating these days)!
  6. Christmas 1960. 8 years old, an Ithaca m66 supersingle .410 shotgun. Still have it.
  7. I have no personal experience, but my Class III sells them and was always very positive about them and their quality whenever he spoke of them.
  8. Very much coolness. It got so good to me yesterday that I pulled it out again today as soon as I walked in the door after work and popped off another 15 rounds (it's good to have a 25 yard range right out your back door!)
  9. Do it bubba! You can always get some more .22lr. What you can't get is the missed time to have fun with something that you loved enough to hang onto since 1969. If I have a chance to shoot with one of my kids I don't pass it up. Ammo can be replaced but shooting time with them is precious to me. Done! I dug it out of the safe, loaded up 15 Federal bulk hollow points and shot it out the back door on my 25 yard back yard range! I forgot how crisp the plastic trigger was (for what it is) and it cycled through them like the first time I fired it at 17! Nice little gun. Thanks for the proddi
  10. I've got a Mohawk Brown Nylon-66 in the safe that I bought in 1969. I haven't shot it in decades, reading all this thread makes want to get it out and run a couple of mag tubes full of scarce 22LR through it!
  11. did you mail those in or were they by eforms? Mailed in. E-forms are only for trusts and individual applications are hard-copy only.
  12. I just picked up my AAC mini-4 and SWR Octane 45HD and their stamps yesterday. Individual paper Form 4s submitted on Jan. 31st, stamps in 6-1/2 months. My last two individual paper Form 4s took 10-1/2 months, submitted Feb. last year and stamps returned in Dec., so the process is improving! Now to get a couple of Form 1s into the mill!
  13. Everybody knows we won't have a warp drive until we get it from the Vulcans, and they won't consider us "worthy" until we get rid of Obummer!
  14. I think it's the fully operational Death Star destroying Alderaan. Like a thousand voices all cried out at once and were suddenly silenced.
  15. I use one of these: http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/8-DAT-BSG3 Self-healing, reactive, no mess - you do have to set it out and bring it in. They make bigger ones too: http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/11-1921159
  16. Already done: http://spectrum.ieee.org/at-work/innovation/smart-bullets
  17. Not a major concern- but something to note for a very old unit. http://m1903.com/03rcvrfail/
  18. I bought a poorly sporterized 03A3 a couple years ago. Smith-Corona receiver with a Remington barrel that had a nice bore. I wanted to "re-mil" the rifle, but shopping for the necessary pieces and parts individually was a PITA and spendy. I bought a de-milled "drill rifle" from SARCO and I got all the wood and metal I needed in one piece! swapped out the barrel and action and have a very accurate 03A3 in military garb. As long as the bores haven't suffered the ravages of corrosive ammo and lack of attention, the 03 and 03A3 are fine shooters even at nearly 100 years of age, as long as you are
  19. Been carrying a Ruger SP-101 and a S&W Mod 60 in .357 for some time. Just recently bought a Ruger LCR in 38 +p and it's been lighter and more comfortable to carry than the stainless magnums. Reduced round count in comparison to a semi-auto, but compact and light. Not the only choices for personal defense, but regular options.
  20. I am starting to consider this one... Question for the group- The Lower pictured here is from Ferret50, and is VERY stout, all-steel. I'd say it's worth the money, but is is about $1k as pictured. We can also buy the Upper and mount it on an AR lower. **Considering how many different varieties of receivers, grips and stocks there are (nearly endless!), do you guys think it would be "better" to get the lower shown, or build my own custom lower for this? I know I could build one heckuva lower with $1k! You could get by for a while on an AR lower. A friend who bought a S
  21. The concern with tracers is not damage to the gun, it's starting wildfires. 50 BMG tracers are designed for military and aircraft use and trace for 2500 yards. There's a picture somewhere of a Ma Deuce firing tracers into a berm at 500 yards and they are *SPRAYING* upwards like a fountain and tracing a hundred yards upward and all the way back to the ground. Wildfire is a major issue here in SE Idaho as well as persistent 35 to 45 mph wind and I do not want to have to scramble over a field of lava flows and sagebrush to try and put out a spreading wildfire. This is not the picture I had
  22. Blackout could be a long way off or never at all. Piston systems are not very viable on the Blackout, not enough gas pressure. I tried two different piston conversions on my Blackouts and had to go back to direct impingement. PNW was advertising Blackout piston uppers but I don't know if they ever made it to the street.
