    Shooting while pregnant?

    Man, so sorry for your loss . Cant imagine how hard that must have been. To your point , imho, accidents happen and they are just an unfortunate part of life . You cant just shut down for fear of the unforseen . In the case of a pregnant woman shooting long range rifles, hearing loss to the...

    Issues w/a Proof Research Barrel and a cold bore shot

    Maybe some binding on the action from the bedding being too tight. First shot relieves the bind and sets the action/bed relationship ?

    Starting out a young shooter, who's left eye dominant. Got questions..

    Yea, archery is much more difficult to master if your dominant body parts dont all gibe . I instructed archery beginners for 14 yrs, as well as alot of seasoned shooters. Its a nightmare to shoot a bow with your less dominant hand in order to use your dominant eye. At the same time, its very...

    Starting out a young shooter, who's left eye dominant. Got questions..

    My son is ambi , doing many things right handed , but he is a strong left eye dominant. When he was 4, i bought him a chipmunk 22 rh rifle. I stuck a simmons 4x long eye relief shotgun scope on it so it would be forgiving of form at his young age . He was a little young at the time to hold the...

    School me on how to evaluate the quality of rifle scope glass

    My point with this post wasnt to change the subject from the OPs original question.... It was to give food for thought on what upu should test FIRST . Checking clarity on several random scopes is a waste of time, IMHO, unless the scopes being tested for clarity are first culled through to make...

    School me on how to evaluate the quality of rifle scope glass

    Yea, i was thinking more along the lines of a shiny penny test. Stick it in some pine bark 100 yds away in a dark creek bottom. Scope that finds it WINS !

    School me on how to evaluate the quality of rifle scope glass

    I think clarity is important . I dont however put clarity at the top of MY list of important features. For me, tracking accuracy and toughness are more important by a huge margin. Decent glass is a great feature to help judge a trophy or spot a hit on paper, but good binos will cover you on...

    Giving out Load Advice caution!

    It cant be over stated that to many that come to this site for advice, the high post count members are given alot of respect, and rightfully so. The problem that arises from that respect is some novice loaders take the advice given as the end all be all truth . They blindly jump right into the...

    Home Defense ARs?

    is Yea, a grendel pistol works great as a true multipurpose firearm. The short powder colume holds up well out of an 11inch pistol barrel . Short, very compact for up close work and trajectory works out to 300 yards without much brainwork. Still carries the energy to be a solid bambi stopper at...

    Home Defense ARs?

    I cant recall anyone who makes a 22 mag in an AR, but i know of a company that makes a 17 hmr AR15 , in a conversion or a complete rifle . Alexander arms is the company. The owner of the company was supposedly instrumental in the development of the 6.5 grendel , another very versatle round for a...

    Home Defense ARs?

    The 45* sight mounts take a little getting use to in order to be quick and second nature. I like them better than the stacked mount that sits on top of the scope , just for the closer ailinment with the bore axis. Not that it makes a huge difference for a system meant for cqc , but im just...

    Home Defense ARs?

    I keep my ar15 in 223 behind door number 3. Its a 16" with a 15" handgaurd. I have a burris 4-14 sitting on top with a burris reflex sight on a 45* mount for close stuff. Id say its definitely my best all around defensive weapon because its is a tack driver, shooting 1/2 moa pretty regularly at...
