Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I Surprised that only one person mentioned the Cmore. The scope and the reticle is awesome. The price is great and more important they have been making reflex scopes for decades
  2. Proof was one the first companies to start the carbon fiber craze. With that being said, I had two proof barrels and loved them, but didn't love the price. Two years ago I switched to BSF barrels and have no issues with accuracy, durability and price. I run those barrels on bolt guns and AR platforms.
  3. I have shot the some of the different Rizzini shotguns . The price point and the feel are pretty good! With that being said I'm 6'6 and I did not want to spend thousands of dollars on a custom shotgun. I searched 4 months shooting Berettas, Browning, CeasarGuerini , Blaser, Krieghoff and Perazzi. I ended up with a used Perazzi and I have never regretted it except for the initial sticker shock. With that being said you get what you pay for. Every Shotgun had a different feel. A-lot of clubs have demo days where you can try out the different shotguns . If you enjoy the sport and are going to spend the money. Try before buying. Once you shoot a few thousand rounds though the shotgun you can fine tune it to your size. Once you narrow down a brand or model you can search for that specific model for either demo or used. Keep in mind a lot of the high end shotguns give discounts for first responders or Military. Always ask Included is the website for Caesar Guerini as an example for demo days each brand will usually the dates are listed.... https://gueriniusa.com Hope that helps
  4. This are other options. I have used the Tactrainers for the last 3 years https://benstoegerproshop.com/accessories/targets/dry-fire-targets/ https://tactrainers.com
  5. the new design was at shot show for a private screening for DOD but that usually means to make money they release to public is the scope gets the bid
  6. So for you they are all the same no preferences
  7. I'm currently using the C-more and love the reticle with that being said Vortex has come a long way with their newest 1-6 in JM reticle in weight. They also have a newer design that should be released soon. The biggest thing is figuring out what reticle suits you .Every one has different eyes and just because one scope reticule is bright enough for me in sunny days doesn't mean it works for you. if you can test out a few. Bushnell is also a great scope and has come a long way.
  8. I have been using the JB weld medium cure and it seems like the silica still comes off days after. Usually after applying the silica by dropping it over the grip I then will press the silica down trying to get silica into the mixture and get a thicker base of silica. Still the silica comes off several days later in certain area. Any suggestions.
  9. Actually you win with your profile Pic to bad the picture cant be larger.
  10. The only issue with grip tape is in extreme temps it can come off leaving a sticky mess. If you like the grip tape feel use epoxy with silica carbine(AKA black sand) . I just had to remove grip tape from a STI because of the glue everywhere spreading out in the heat and decided to do the silica carbide treatment. Never happier
  11. Stick for US that love pictures vs words Great diagram thanks
  12. International is usually different especially when flying to Africa. The 11 pound rule is always enforced. The rule is a locked hard case. I used to fly with a mini pelican case ,but switched to a aluminum case to save weight and increase my ammo allotment. pelican case 1120 1.42 lbs cheap lockable aluminum case or thin plastic case .82-1 lb Usually I got weighed in the US and out of Kennedy airport there was no throwing away ammo.
  13. Lately I have been shooting Glocks and decided to change out a slide on my glock 34 to a ZEV lightened slide . While it swings faster and can cycle faster due to the lightened mass .It feels like a toy gun in the hand and is a huge transition. I ended up added weight with a brass and tungsten guide rod.
  14. Very true Delfuego: But the amount of time you spend critiquing other people you could have wrote about heavy bags and their use, or the numerous other bags you mentioned and how they work from your first -hand experience. A description of what they do, not just a name would greatly help out the inexperienced shooter. A example: The fortune cookie is used when shooting over barricades to protect your rifle and create a stable surface.Keep in mind this just one of many uses of the fortune cookie. My apologizes to the group for giving outdated information I'll be lazy and include "what the pros use in 2019", keep in mind they are sponsored, they get the stuff free and get to check out many different types of bags equipment and rifles . The advantage of seeing what the pros use, is trends on what can work and what doesn't. The best way to figure out what bags you need is go to matches, Dryfire with barricades, borrow bags and see their use first hand, otherwise you might buy a bunch of bags and figure out what doesn't work for you. This will leave you penniless with gear that do not fit your style. Any thing to add Delfuego since this forum is designed to help people not troll. https://precisionrifleblog.com/2019/02/24/best-shooting-bag/ Here is the newest article about bags, bags have changed since 2015 but not the employment. Use the article as a reference as why pros use that particular style of bag or brand . The way to save money is make your own bags such as the old standby of using a sock with a filler such as dried beans, sand, or any other lightweight filler in a waterproof bag, let out the air in the bag and a simple knot at the end produces a sock bag.
