Re: Teach me on - 17 HMR

The 17hmr is good for varmints. Small game too, but if you're planning to eat much of them, it's not the best rifle to body-shoot squirrels with. Its a popular rifle in fall turkey season in my area. Also known to work well on foxes, raccoons, possums and fisher. Works on deer with a head shot. I've...

Re: If I'm not going to shoot a long ways why would I want a

Probably depends on the loading in .223/556 really, as well as what you're shooting at. The light-bullet stuff for thin skinned game isn't going to work optimally out at longer ranges, while the heavier stuff probably sheds velocity and only expands/yaws/tumbles/fragments/whatever optimally above a ...

Re: Pink Guns

I dunno. If it gets more people into guns and shooting, it can't be a bad thing. There's strength in numbers.
My stuff is either all black or wood and blue. I don't even own a laminated stock. I can see where a gun-gamer would want to personalize their stuff with different colors.

Re: If I'm not going to shoot a long ways why would I want a

Some places have minimum caliber requirements for hunting deer. The .308 is a fine deer rifle. Lots of guys around here use them for Bear season, as well. I imagine they'd do better on heavier stuff like elk and moose, even though you don't have them in your area. A .308 launches a heavier bullet. S...

Re: Beef Jerky spoiled. What did I do wrong?

You nailed it. If it's not totally dried out, it'll spoil. If it's dried, it'll keep. A lot of people make the "burger jerky" (from ground meat, like the jerky shooter things use), but don't dry it enough. If you get some that's not dried, you can freeze it and it'll keep. As far as homemade jerky g...

That was straight up Derek Vinyard style.

And can I get a ruling on maggie's rifle? Looks like a sporterized 1903/03-A3 to me, by the cocking knob on the bolt and the bottom metal.

Re: Magtech ammo

Could be the ammo. My only experience with magtech ammo was when my buddy showed up with a new hi-point .40 and a couple boxes of ammo.
It seemed to cycle pretty weakly, but I just figured it was the heavy slide.

Ive actually got a couple G2s with the dx LED in them. Ive got a little supply of rechargable 123As from them too, that I use in a 7Z combatlight. Light output is way better than the SF incandescent lamps. Battery life is good with the rechargables, too. I have one of the G2s on my bedroom gun, a m5...
