    0-300yrds hunthing

    Amen. There's a big difference between taking one shot hunting or multiples at the range. The adrenalin rush of a kill shot takes one's mind off of the recoil IMO.

    Glasses or no glasses with scopes

    When I had my cataracts removed I had them put in ocular implants with transition lenses about five years ago. Annual eye exam this past Monday I read the small bottom lines with each eye. Modern technology's a marvel.

    Glasses or no glasses with scopes

    "Why they put numbers on the side focus when we all see differently I don't know." General adjustment for a quick final focus. A SWAG ;-)

    Brass catcher

    I like the Caldwell also. I've put the attachment item on all of my ARs for the range & I have a dump bag to empty the net into as necessary. I prefer to police my brass in the field.

    Recommendations for first AR-15

    I believe the U.S. supplied DPMS to the Afghans and the Iraqis. That speaks to the reliability of their product & the frugality of the State Dept. ;-) There are only about five mfgs of the uppers & lowers, they stamp them with the contractors logos and numbering conventions.

    This idea

    In my experience: the only drop-in parts are generally OEM for the equipment. Very few firearm after market 'improvements' are drop-in. I have the hair loss to prove it.

    Got my squirrel rifle tuned up and ready.

    Sweet. I have a tricked out Marlin 795. Pic rail added with a Simmons AO scope and the trigger worked on. I've modified it to emulate the Appleseed version that Marlin made for their events. Also have on hand a case of the Appleseed targets. How times change: 69 years ago, in California, my...

    Favorite deer rifle

    I can remember back in the day when Winchester or Marlin levers with 30-30 silver tip was the de rigeur outfit for deer in California. An excellent brush combination. Scope, what's a scope?
