Re: Hello fron Niagara Region !

We are still meeting in Niagara! Sorry I missed this, our meetings are the first Friday of the month and we are currently meeting at The Kasbah (6130 Dunn st). So you just missed the November meeting but we'll be there in December.

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

Looking for a 10.5" upper (or even a barrel) with a 6" barrel shroud (16" or 16.5" overall) that is can friendly. Anyone seen one? Hopefully at a price that does scream "sodomize me". I don't know the logistics, but maybe consider a Canadian manufacturer? Either North Eastern Arms (NEA) or S&J Hard...

Hey from Toronto!
There's a few canucks around, probably one or more in your neck of the woods.
There's also been a few great discussions on shotguns over the years I strongly recommend checking out

Re: Firearms Chat 3: #pewpewlife

No one's feeling chatty on the AR build thread, and it's probably more fitting here: Not my build, but I still need help trouble shooting. Chiappa .22 upper with proprietary bolt and 1:16 rifled barrel. I've had this toy out to the range a couple of times now and I see two issues I wish to address: ...

There's a quick shot of the swelling case, difficult thing to photograph.

What does one typically do about light primer strikes on a rim fire?

Community Network Through the Gun Club

I am on the executive board to one of Toronto's (and probably Canada's) longest standing gun clubs (founded 1905). In 1954, our current range was built, a modest building, the only one on the street. Toronto built up around us though and now the building is sandwiched between an auto body shop and (...

Re: Custom Rifle From the Beginning

That is a long way for .308. It will get there but the drop will be phenomenal on anything less than a specialty hand load. Talking several feet here even with hand loads. A 1km shot is more about bragging rights than practicality. I'd have to go a long ways out of my way to find that sort of range...

Re: Custom Rifle From the Beginning

What kind of accuracy did you say you wanted at nearly 1100 yards? What calibers were you considering? Curved vs Flat trigger - The curved trigger will help guide your finger to the same spot every time. The flat trigger won't. Really comes down to preference. I'm 99.9% set on .308, it's more than ...

Custom Rifle From the Beginning

So some folks may remember reading in the firearm chat that I'm taking steps to build my own Remington 700, including a custom machined receiver. While I'm taking my sweet time getting the titanium on the machines, I'm going to start purchasing the parts I won't be machining myself (trigger, barrel,...

What's the current Lyman book? I bought 49 a few years ago, still feels relevant, but if there's a 50 or newer, that's where I suggest you go. I also have a Nosler book, I think mine is 7, with an 8th edition available on shelves? Then I have the Lyman pistol book (unknown edition) which has a few m...

So let's say, zombie apocalypse. You planned ahead and had supplies at the ready, but normalcy is not to be expected in the near future and your bug in preps are somewhat limited. You decide to egress your urban living accommodation to make way to primary bug out location. En route, the first cache ...
