Re: .22 detachable magazine vs. tube magazine

Just get yourself signed up for a Project Appleseed and you'll learn your rifle incredibly well in a single weekend. Yup. What feed arrangement you take is sort of married to what you want your rifle to do. I put my CZ 452 together in order to have a rifle that shot groups well with the best ammo I...

Re: ammo brand loyalty

I do with rimfire, but it's more of a efficiency pattern than a brand thing. CCI Standard Velocity shoots MOA or a little better out of my CZ, so I use that almost exclusively. I don't particularly like Federal but Automatch cycles pretty well in all of my semiautos and is acceptably accurate (1-1.5...

Re: Official ZSARC Membership Sign Up

Interested.

Brand new Technician from northern Alabama, don't have a radio yet.

Goal is talking on the 40m bands, so I'll start studying for General soon.

Re: Appleseeds, experiences and questions

I shot my first Appleseed a couple of weeks ago and earned a patch with my CZ 452. Working a bolt gun that fast is a big job, but rapid AQTs alleviate the clubbing a bolt-action can take on Stage 2 by allowing the shooter to manage their own time (I shot two rapid AQTs and qualified on both runs). B...

Re: Scout v. Hunting Rifle

MVPs are just okay. Mossberg isn't a rifle company, and they are interested in selling to a price point instead of selling to a product quality level. Savages are generally better built/engineered and are better to work on, but they'll let doozies through sometimes. I have a friend that ordered a ta...

Re: 1911 selection and crap webite design

I'm trying to pick a 1911 that fits my needs and every manufacturer website I've been to is incredibly suck. I've yet to find a site with a simple set of checkboxes to see if they even make one that I like, even before I look at sale prices. My requirements are simple, 5" barrel, replaceable doveta...

Re: More guns: same calibre or different?

My reloading setup nearly fits in a cardboard boot box, and all I need is a table or desk to bolt it to. Some folks have these neat cabinets set up too. Even if you have a separate press for shotgun and rifle, it's not terribly bulky to do just a turret or single-stage. Also, eight (or four) 90-deg...

Re: Most common ammo's in US?

much appreciated, always nice to hear something concrete. I guess I'm only surprised by .38sp and number 4 & 5 on rifles, everything else I would have guessed. I do forget sometimes how many of some calibers are almost totally imported, and how domestic manufacture is nearly zilch. Yes, imports are...

Re: More guns: same calibre or different?

In the US I don't think diversification really manages risk for you - 9mm and .45 Auto both trend about the same in panics based on data I've seen (i.e. they disappear). .40 S&W was the same in the first panic I saw in the Northeast, and it was only a little bit better in the Sandy Hook panics (this...

Re: Limiting your Cache to Three Calibers...

Currently: 1) .22 LR 2) 9x19mm 3) .223 Rem .22 LR because I can hunt with it and get cheap handgun trigger time, 9mm because my preferred handguns are a Glock 34, Glock 26 and Beretta 92, and .223 for obvious reasons. The fourth slot would be hard to pick between 20 gauge and .35 Remington (probably...

Re: Most common ammo's in US?

I have to know what domestic manufacturers are building for work. For handguns it is generally in this order (.45 Auto and .38 Special flip occasionally): 1) 9x19mm 2) .45 Automatic 3) .38 Special 4) .40 S&W 5) .357 Magnum 6) .380 Auto 7) Everything else For rifles it is something like this: 1) .223...

Re: What was your first pistol?

My first buy was a PX4. I sold it after picking up a 92FS, which is what I should have gotten in the first place. Great factory DA trigger but not for me in the end.

The first handgun I ever shot was a friend's Mark 23. That was neat-o.

Hello from the American Southeast!

Hi guys. Just relocated to the South to take a new position with my company and as I settle I would like to do a better job of being prepared. Work in the firearms industry, have been shooting and carrying for a long time, and have always been preparedness-minded financially so the rest sort of grew...
