  1. How did you like this combination?
  2. Glad I got 8 lbs for now. Ramshot Competition? Going to have a look at that.
  3. Took a friend's boys to the range to burn some ammo. 400 rounds .22, 200 rounds .223, and 100 of .17hmr. They were grinning the whole time. Good stuff! Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  4. I shoot 1911s whenever I visit my father. He collects and shoots them. I can't shoot them as well as I shoot Glocks. Don't know why, but when I first shot a Glock practicing with a friend, it just fit me and I never looked back. One day I will inherit a load of 1911s. Ho hum, it's the long guns and shotguns that will excite me as they have sentimental value. 1911s, that's trading stock! Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  5. Been looking to build up my components as I'm back shooting, and the ladies are expressing desires to shoot as well.I can't seem to locate any. Is it out of production?

    Range time today, working on 2x2 with reloads, and the same from two positions and both r-l, and l-r. Reloads were smooth, and my accuracy is acceptable but not stellar. Need some work. Next week, same drills at 15-20 yards. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  7. I started going on to keep in touch with my family and friends who live far from me. As time has gone by it just seems like a place for folks to be rude and comment on things just to stir up an argument. No bueno for anything. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  8. I just wish they had just made it a 10 round limit and gave us back the mag release for all firearms. Then 10 Rd mag changes would be okay, and while not the best, the rifles would be normal and no stupid button. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  9. Like switching back to your old favorite pistol. It just feels natural. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  10. Facebook. I just started dry firing again recently and stopped looking at it so much. I just feel better. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  11. So much better and healthier! Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk

    First time back dry fire in a year at least was about a month ago. Three to four times a week. First two were tough. Not gripping anymore and am I fat! (By my normal standards) Last week though, my transitions and reloads started to feel normal again. Like a part of my body and natural movement. I knew I would never shoot a match again unless I could feel natural with a pistol in my hands again. Well, now I do. And I'm dry firing shotty as well. Got some welding to do. Have to build some targets and clay holders. Feels great! Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
  13. Let us know how it shoots!
  14. Just found another and a BSA Sweet17 for my .17HMR too. Looks like I have a bit of zeroing next month.
  15. Looks like it will go on my budget gun Remington 770 30-06. Should do nicely for a budget hunter that should do the job in a pinch.
  16. Looking through a box of gear given to me, come across a brand new Bushnell Elite 10x40 fixed power scope with mil dot reticle and locking turrets. Who uses a fixed power scope and why?

    Which one?

    Red oak if possible. Knotty pine never really looks good. TIG or MIG ?
  18. This drives me really nuts. Need the hair pulling emoticon for this one!
  19. All right, maybe I don't need mags. I have my PRIs and after Larry's post I dug into my BIN of .223/556 magazines and lo and behold I can run certain magazines just downloaded. New 25rd Brownells ran fine. Don't think I will order more than three new mags now and play with these for now. Thanks.
  20. Never hold your breath when you are aiming. It actually increases your pulse slightly,rather exhale slowly relaxing as you increase trigger pressure. Your shot will break with less jerk and hits should improve. Increase trigger pressure as you relax and exhale. Remember to breath as you move through your stage too. Breathing and accurate rifle fire are integral.
  21. When you had issues Larry, was it a follower binding thing, magazine swell, feed lips issue?
  22. The upper A/B zones are added incentives to risk, whose elimination for the sake of sanitizing the sport is not necessary at this time.
  23. Thanks gentlemen. I appreciate the feedback. Going to order both more PRIs and try the Cproducts as well.
  24. Which do you prefer? Have to get about ten more, and I actually like the PRI magazines that came with the rifle, but thought I'd throw it out there and see if any of you are running a 6.8, and if so, what mags, and why? Bit of an investment with these rifles, so looking for some advice. Thanks
  25. It has been said before to just shoot what your eyes/hands/etc, essentially whatever you shoot better. If you are bored, move on, if you are happy with Glock, by all means go with the tried and true. One thing though, at your level, you have ingrained a great deal of muscle memory. What some folks fail to realize is that we who train at these sports as in any sport are actually building in that muscle memory neural pathways in our brains. Over time, after years of dry fire and live fire with that platform, you may have ingrained some things I would call inefficiencies, that working one-on-one with a master level instructor might help eliminate. These are things that a shooter such as I a mere C in Production would not even notice.
