  1. Best thread in a while. My music taste runs the full gamut. I just appreciate talented musicians despite style. This guy is crazy talented on the mandolin. 2:14 in is pretty good.
  2. Two side of the coin from a talented group of guys. And
  3. .410 stuff hasn’t bothered me yet, but that full powered 454 Casull round is a punisher! I will keep the gloves😂
  4. I had just started to get into 45 colt when the pandemic hit. Bought a Taurus raging judge for steal, and loved it! The hornady 240 grain 454 casull at 1900 ft/sec... not so much (at least not more than 5-6 rounds at a time without a shooting glove.) I will pick up a Henry Silver Big Boy in 45 Colt if they ever get back in stock. I have everything to reload except a powder that is optimized. Unique and Titegroup are currently all I have left in pistol powder.
  5. Yes that qualifies as exciting! Look forward to hearing more about it once completed.
  6. I get the same emails daily that most of you get. In this age of overpriced ammunition and recycled flyers, is there anything that you guys and gals are excited about? Quite admittedly I am currently bored.
  7. Congratulations on retirement Gunny, and thank you for you years of faithful service!
  8. Thanks guys, and it is good to still see you both around. It is still a work in progress, and I do wish I had more space. One of the greatest positives has been moving and organizing a lot of the firearm stuff I have bought and stashed over the years. I actually know what I have now, and I definitely won’t be buying anymore AK-47 magazines ever😂.
  9. And I can’t for the life of me figure out how to flip those pics in this new format. My apologies.
  10. So a dream of mine has always been to have a safe room. Living in the southern portion of tornado alley, many us either have spaces that are reinforced or underground. Moved recently and finlly converted our reinforced tornado shelter into a gun safe room as well. It’s not all that big at 80 sqft, but the only way to get to it is via a secret entrance, and it also doubles as my man cave and reloading room. Still some more work to do.
  11. Thank you! It has been a blast getting this put together. We now live on our 42 acres. This is part of our barn renovation, and I have a rifle range out to 400 yards, and a 14 plate handgun course moving uphill at 10 to 25 yards. Still a lot of work to be done, but I am very thankful to be a steward of this place for the rest of my life🙂
  12. Given the fact that bump stocks were deemed illegal without any new law passed, and with no grandfather clause or compensation for those who purchased them, I personally wouldn’t spend $500 on something that is likely to suffer a similar fate. Sore subject for many of us I’m sure. I am sure it does rock however and is a great amount of fun. Hope you enjoy it!
  13. I have BSA Sweet 22 scopes with interchangeable target turrets on every bench rest 22 I own. Terrific scopes and no apologies necessary. Sounds like a great rifle from the sound of the components used. Congratulations!
  14. I have two. Conversion is pretty much straightforward just as the X39. I used the standard CSS bullet guide on both with fine results. I run Tapco Galil mags in both which run 100%. I also run Galil steel surplus where some run 100% and others not so great.😂
  15. Thank you. I appreciate that. This is the AK rifle I train with the most. (A close second being a SBR based off of a mini draco) But this was my first Saiga rifle, and holds a special place in my heart.
  16. Quite honestly, I do not shoot either very often, and when I do, it is Tula 150’s. I have several other .308’s that I shoot regularly for distance and hand load for. So these are really more for collection purposes. The 20” is more functional from a ballistics standpoint, but there is something about the 16” that is just sexier. It seems like the .308 Saiga’s along with the .223’s are the least desirable calibers. FWIW the 16” is an ‘08 imported by RAA and the 20” is a ‘10 imported by Legion.
  17. It’s been a while since I have posted. I am planning on thinning the herd so to speak with my Saiga collection. I have two converted .308’s a 16” and a 20”. I am leaning towards keeping the 20” and parting with the 16” just based on the cartridge and velocity consideration. Any reason I should keep the 16” over the 20”?
