Exactly, nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Im thinking of picking up that mold. I keep wanting to dive deep into my trombone action fowling piece, but idk whats stopping me.
.22s are just quick and easy i guess.

I think its because im just pissed at my benelli.

I found an AK-12 parts kit for sale and know where I could send it to turn it into a functioning rifle and I'm trying really hard to fight the temptation.

Its a montefeltro, so its an M1 super 90 but i cant do anything with it.
Funny, its the "field" version of m1, but you can only buy rifled slug barrels for the regular m1.
Its become pointless, aside from being a smooth af semi auto 12g to have in the safe.

It was shoot shit far away with things your not suppose to use for far away...day.
10/10 with .357sig on a 12x12 target @100, i only shot 1 slug at it and flinched, so it was way left.
The 76 year old lady with a 1911 that i was "competing" with had a better group than me haha.
but she shot from the bench

Yus. Is good rifle, but its not as good as id like it to be.
Struggling to hold 1moa, even from the sled. Gonna try different mfgs and bullte weights and see if it makes a difference. Hardly have 100 rounds through the thing, so the rifling is hardly even fowl yet.

Already looking at a new barrel haha.

Took the Scorpion and the PPS43 out yesterday, I was very pleasantly surprised by the PPS' capabilities even without a functioning stock. Scorpion needs a brace and desperately needs the ambidextrous safety replaced because it digs into your trigger finger while shooting.

I hate that shit. Its like, didnt they ever have a human shoot it before going into production? Haha.
>want to try one
They got stupidly expensive i heard, but they offer a wood stock OEM now. If we ever get a range day put together ill bring it haha.
I have some 77gr stuff i want to put through it. Been using 55gr, and thats not made for 1:8. I want to find a 1:12 16" barrel for cheap stuff and .22lr, but its not easy.

I shot a JP enterprises bolt gun in 6mm creedmoore yesterday a guy i know from swarovski let me play with. I wasnt all that impressed considering the price tag tbh. Sub MOA but ... idk, it was like 14k worth of rifle and i just figured it would be like, more than "huh, thats not bad." Haha. I mean, it was outstanding, dont get me wrong, it just wasn't like a magical moment or anything haha. Maybe its because im dont bench gun.
First time with 6mm too, felt like .223, mostly because of the freaking m1 Abrams muzzle break they put on it haha.

I found a way to hold it that doesn't suck quite so much but yeah, needs to go immediately. Brace came today though, went with the PDW one, shit's lit.

>more than "huh, thats not bad


I would expect it to put 5 rounds in one hole at like 500 yards and then blow me for that kind of money

>>42143826
Is that the 4 position one? When you say scorpion, are you taking evo, or OG klobb?

It put 5 in a ragged hole @100, but I've seen out of the box savage rifles do that too haha.
I think there is a rule of diminishing returns when you get up that high. The thing that really made me excited was it had a little mini 2 shell holder right next to the ejection port.
I was like "oh thats awesome!" About the little 3 dollar accessory and meh about the rest of the rifle haha.
Again, beautiful gun, but im not like jealous of it.
Fit and finish was great, and i imagine it would start to show its worth at longer distances.

Then they came for the 9mm and still i said nothing.
Now they've come for the .22lr, and there is no one left to stand for me.

Too much for steel cased.
Thats not terrible for mini mags though, i mean, atm. I have a few thousand aguila super extra, and enough .233 to fill all my mags plus a few hundred so im actually okay. Thanks for looking.
It will come back when things die down.
I just ordered some 15 round mags for my cmmg conversation. I have a bunch of 25 rounders, but the mags are really long, and the 3rd party 15 rounders are the same profile as the 20rnd mags, and thats what i run.

D'aww, paws.

Looks good, i like the evos, but i think if i was going to do a 9mm brace build, it would be an mp5k. Wasnt palmetto suppose to be doing mp5 stuff?
You know, i dont have anything with a brace atm actually.
I cleaned all my stuff yesterday and it got me thinking again about ditching the collection, aside from a few key pieces, and starting fresh now that i have a more discerning eye.

I think they make a brace for the klobb now, i would for sure want one of those haha. Still kick myself for not getting one when they were cheap.

Would I be crazy to buy a Kel-Tec bullpup [1] instead of an AR-15 or Mini-14? I see above that bullpups have some disadvantages (>>42137452, >>42137453, >>42137693), but I really like idea of something that wouldn't become unwieldy if I attach a sound suppressor. (Although the suppressor would be at least a year away, as I haven't even started on the paperwork yet.)

I guess now is a seller's market, but I'm worried that prices will go even higher if Biden wins the election and might not come down. Especially if the Dems also win a majority in the Senate. I heard Biden wants to impose a $200 tax stamp on transfers of """assault weapons""".

Yeah that's my boy Dio.

Palmetto is still planning an MP5 clone but who knows when they will show up?

A pistol caliber carbine I feel like is a must, at least one. And yeah, there's a few options for it, Atlantic has a bunch of different configurations.

>>42143868

Crazy? No. But you would be going in accepting that it will not have the same ubiquitous nature of the AR and so if anything goes wrong, you will have far fewer options.

Get the rifle that you like shooting the most.
Glocks and ARs are only "the best" because they have become the defacto standard, and standardized tools are a good thing.
That being said, the AR is not my favorite rifle, and if it weren't for politics, i probably wouldnt even own one, which is why i like my SCR lower.
All that being said, KelTec has iffy at best QC.

>>42143872
Its been like at least 3 years since they announced that. Time to git on it palmetto!
I also think a PCC is a great thing to have and ive been singing their praises for a long time. I've been happy to see they have had such a rise in popularity lately.
Although, it was the first thing i dropped in an economic emergency. The brace on my glock serves the purpose, and i think if i buy another, it will just be a 5.7 upper for my SCR.

Kel-Tecs are OK, their triggers are squishy and spongy and they're not going to suffer very high round-counts but they are at least interesting and unique. One nice thing about them is that KT's production capacity is low enough and their products neat enough that demand is greater than the supply so if you get it and find you don't like it as much as you thought you did you won't lose much in resale.
I've owned a Sub-2000, a PLR-16 and two P3AT's myself.

Stood in my way.
Its actually a pretty fun competition. 10 shots to shoot 5 eggs at 100 yards with a rimfire.
I was woefully unprepared, as i just scrubbed out my bore, and everything was off as the barrel seasoned. I think i hit 7 out of 15, and those were by mistake.

Now im going to have to spend hundreds of dollars to build a gun for the sole purpose of egg scrambling.

Not yet. I just took a look, and it seems like 10/22s are in stock at a nearby store for a reasonable price. I want one. Maybe I'll pick up one this month.


I also really like the idea of pic related, but I worry it just wouldn't be practical for concealed carry, plus it's rather expensive ($1500 MSRP + $200 tax stamp).

I get it.

Ruger isn't the only company making 1022s now, because the patent expired and the rifle has become public domain and open source. Expect it to be demonized soon haha.
Thompson center makes a really nice version of it, for just a bit more.

Im not sure they make that pistol anymore tbh, ive never handled one, so i cant say if it would be any good for CC. I would guess its size would be a bit cumbersome, but i happily CC'd a 92f for years so my idea of "too big" is not representative of the general consensus.

A postal league.
Its like a long distance league.
As its name implies, it was done through the mail in times past.
Basically, we all shoot the same course of fire, and post our results and see whomst wins that week.

It can be as simple as just shooting 10 rounds at a scored target, to specialty targets like a know your limits target.

Would have to be on the honor system of course, and conform to range conditions we all have access too, but i think a weekly challenge would be fun and a good excuse to get people out shoosting.

AKs are fun, and you go through phases with whats in your safe. I know i do.

Cool. Theres 2 i guess. Thats enough to play, but still hoping more people want to join in haha.

What kind of range distance do you have access to? I have immediate acess to 0-200 yards, but i know a lot of folks shoot indoors @25 so whoever wants to play, we have to stay in the bounds of the shortest range obviously.

50 works.

I assume they are public ranges? Any position restrictions? I know most are bench/standing only, but can you do prone, sitting, ect?
Prob cant shoot from barriers or like, from a ladder or anything right?
