Good news from Virginia. It appears the sheer volume of protests by gun owners who broke no laws has reached the state's politicians. The first of the anti-gun laws proposed by the Governor and his supporters has stalled in the statehouse, postponed in committee for a year. Four democrats joined the republicans in the vote to delay the bill.

So much for steamrolling the rights of gun owners.

Good. Watch that they don't try to sneak it through a year from now though.

The See-all sight arrived today. For sake of experimentation I put it on 45 degree offset mount on the 18" AR. Gonna be a while until the Micro Roni arrives because they neglected to mention it would be shipping from Israel. Not terribly surprised by that but it would have been nice if they were a bit clearer on that point. At least the shipping was free.

Back to the sight though, while I won't know for certain until I shoot with it I do think I will like it. It's very light weight and low profile, the reticule shows up quite clearly even with my crappy eyesight and it doesn't seem to obscure the target terribly much.

Here's the sight picture. Due to the aspect ration of the camera the reticule appears ~25% smaller than when you're just eyeballing it. Because the lens is magnified the further it is from your eye the larger the reticule appears. When I put it just behind the front sight post it takes up about one-third of the lens.

Gonna need a riser for it I think. Suppose I'll go scare one up either tomorrow or Friday.

Here's a slightly better picture of it on a carry handle. This makes it clear how small it is. Just a smidge larger than a Magpul Mbus.

OK so we have clearly reached the point where this needs to stop... But let's keep going and see what happens!

It's actually not too high mounted on the carry handle and everything is too high when mounted on the carry handle. But I can get a nice, clear sight picture this way. I can't keep my nose on the charging handle doing so of course but then my glasses don't work very well when I do that anyway.

Now if only I could find the right screw for the rail section we would be all set. The tapered screw I have in there is for mounting it to the A2 handguard. Suppose I might find a nut that would fit. Assuming the thread pattern isn't some arbitrary nonsense... And it probably is.

Went to the funshop and got a half inch riser for the See-all sight and got a couple more stendos. One OEM Glock and the other made by ETS, they're supposed to be pretty good. Suppose I'll find out.

The Micro Roni has left Israel. I might get it this weekend if Customs doesn't drag their feet. Though they probably will.

The Micro Roni arrived in NYC at 10:22 last night. In theory it could come here today but most likely I will get it Monday.

I also ordered another HSGI extended Taco pouch to carry the extra stendos. They're practically the only pouch on the market for Glock 33rd's. SMG mag pouches will work but they're usually just a bit too big.

Couldn't get into my usual range due to slush and mud so I just found a convenient spot inna woods. I had boresighted the SeeAll with the laser boresight and got it minute-of-can. the half-inch riser is just a bit too low as expected so I ordered a taller one. No malfunctions, and the aluminum muzzle device was only moderately warm after two mags. Once the taller riser arrives I'll give it a proper sight-in.

Overall, I'm happy with my Glock, though I bought a 20 instead of a 19.

The trigger pull takes a bit of break in, so the gun you test is more likely to have a worn-in feel.

While I had some issues with my Ruger SR pistols, I still shoot them over my other pistols once the few issues were resolved. I can't say the compact SR9s is a good CCW. it's a good car or truck glove box gun and is less expensive than a Model 19 or 17.

The SR line is much easier to take down for cleaning once you learn the quirks.

I like it. Is nice to have a gun you can abuse and neglect and still have it work. I chose the 19 because on hot days I would get rust speckles on my Makarovs and that offended me and also because I wanted something that had 15 and 30+ round mags available. Mind you this was back when the federal AWB had just expired and such things were only just coming back onto the market.

People either love them or hate them for their grip angle. If you learn to shoot using Glocks, you'll be pointing high for a long time if you move to anything else.

You may prefer the finger grooves on the gen 3 and 4 models, or you may not.

I prefer the gen 5 model 19.

I think they're overall excellent, and they're my handgun of choice.

So I bought a used 50 pound recurve bow the other day as well as some arrows for it. Paid almost twice as much for the arrows as I did for the bow. Don't have a decent arm guard any more because the elastic straps wear out too quickly on the store bought ones so I set about making one today. It's not done yet, I still have to clean up and finish the edges, install the grommets and lace it up. So it will look something more like the blue prototype you see on the left there. It's made of three layers of heavy cotton canvas with a strip of ABS plastic cut from a blue barrel. The stitching was done with a Speedy Stitcher awl and waxed thread.

I probably finish it tomorrow after work or more likely the next day.

Brutal. That's some poor metallurgy yo. Overly hardened would be my guess.
I have a WW2-era British navy clasp knife that was overly hardened. Not only does the blade have a hairline crack in it but it's near impossible to open the blade without losing a thumbnail because the springs are so hard.

This stuff is the Bee's knees for backyard plinking. Out of the Winchester 94/22's 22" bbl it's at least as quiet as the Gamo Silentcat but hits quite a bit harder. Is probably a smidge louder than CCI's short CB caps though.

So I had a nightmare last night. A truly terrifying one. What was so terrifying you ask? Well I found myself in Fallout 76's Appalachia, desperately farming lead to make ammunition so I could quest. Only every time I got a reasonable amount of ammo assembled a hoard would come along, attack my farms and I would expend all my ammo getting rid of them.

Truly a nightmare... And also the reason I quit playing Fallout 76. Of course I woke up and realized that I was still in Appalachia and still in the midst of a Chinese communist pandemic and while there aren't yet any giant, mutant bats flying around I intend to be prepared for when there is!

So I bought the full contents of an indoor shooting range's lead bucket, roughly 70 pounds of assorted bullets and spall. As well as a bunch of reloading supplies. Ought to take weeks to melt it all down into ingots and then cast it into slugs, shot and bullets. While I still have work presently we're already preparing for internet-only sales so I can expect to have plenty of time off and I'll need something to occupy my free time(Besides my huge backlog of books obviously).
Also if any giant bats do show up Saiga 12 and I are going to fill the air with enough lead to sink the Bismark. >:)

>>42120545

...And done.

I think I counted 59 ingots, plus a heaping shovelful of impurities and detritus. So if my math is right that's enough lead for over 900 1oz slugs.

Here's the shotshell press I got. A Pacific Gunsight Co. Dl-266. I believe Hornady bought-out this company at some point in the last 50 or so years and sold it with their name stamped on it for a while.

You don't need much in the way of tools to reload shotgun shells, unless of course you're planning on loading a whole hell of a lot of them. In which case a press is probably a good idea.
