what would be a good affordable caliber for a lever action rifle ? either a handgun or rifle caliber, from my previous research it would be the classical 30-30, it would be for a bush and range rifle. maximum range, 150m open sight or 3X scope

the .22 was already chosen by the way

The 30/30 336Y is $350ish. Longer range? Snap up some leverevolution blamunition.
I've got a box, yet to shoot it but PPC blammo will consistently bust clays off hand @ 25 yds.
I heart marlin 336 levers. :D

I've been a marlin guy for years but I wouldn't buy one of the new Remington made ones, they seem to have a ton of issues. Try to find an older one.

My M&P Shield in 9mm I had a grip reduction and simple stipple job done on by a friend. Took the hump off the backstrap and he put an Imperial Crest on there cuz I'mma big ole dork :crazy:

Image Image

Oddly enough it handles better now without the hump in the back, for me anyway. I dig it.

Sounds right on the money. I agree that it's only "interesting", not awesome, but then, I once read something on the internet about the high-quality craftsmanship and great trigger feel in all of their guns. Nice to see a long-stroke piston system, though, and another bullpup .223 is never really unwelcome.

In local news, the Osprey drop-in piston system is very drop-in, very nice, even more nice if you get it in Nickel-Boron, and fits under FUCK-ALL handguards. After having handled the Troy Alpha rail, I'm really pissed I can't use it for this build. I'm deciding whether to see if a Midwest SS-series will actually work as the internet says it probably will, or give up and put in the spare gas tube I have sitting next to my current build. I'd still have to buy a DI bolt carrier, then.

I need for household CNC mills to become a reality a lot faster than it's actually going to happen. The part I want does not exist, and this proves that 3D printers are really not as useful as people think they are.

Just get a two ring binder. It's perfect for close range paper holding, and it won't go through drywall. Not to mention the sound of you opening and closing it will make the paper automatically fall in line.

That action is pretty cool. Wish they made it in a fullsize double stack. Anyone see in the article if it's a polymer or steel frame? I'm guessing poly but didn't see it mentioned anywhere.

Huh. If the mags are decently priced I may finally replace that Taurus 9mm I keep in the car.

Did I read correctly that it's a fixed barrel? As in, no booster to suppress?

Yeah, look at the animation. Looks like it works similar to an SKS operated by blowback instead of gas. Pretty swanky

finally free of the holidays and family and caught up on here again. Father in law gave me a sig 380 for my wife to shoot and possibly use as a CCW. He is trying to distribute his collection between his three children before anything happens to him to prevent any arguments over the firearms after his demise. Not that he is ill or anything. He just wants to pre-stage his collection. That and since he retired to his beach house in Mexico and cant have his collection there he is slowly parting it out to his children.

Picked up a Galco Miami classic shoulder holster used but not a speck of dirt on it nor a single wear mark from my local LGS for my 357 rossi. Fit is a little loose but the store owners wife does leather work and she is putting a couple of stitches in it to make it fit the gun right for me. Cost was only $50. I plan to use I as my hunting holster on future hunts. Shoulder holster easier while ridding in a Polaris side by side and on the last elk hunt the cold weather bibs I was wearing had no belt loops and with he multiple layers My belt would not fit any way.

Getting my crossbow approval for archery seasons here. Only requires a VA doctor to attest my should was rebuilt while on active duty and I can hunt all archery seasons with a cross bow.

Did the shooting for my daughters science project two days ago. Compared 4 different powders in 38spl pushing 158 grain reloads against factory 158 grain loads out of a 4 inch barreled revolver and a 16 inch lever action carbine over my new chronograph I had to get for the science project. (I get to buy more firearms related stuff when I can directly tie it to filling the freezer or the kids grades in school). Also managed to find a great shooting area 1.5 miles down the street from the house for future use. Now if others would pick up after themselves down there it would be even better. (shot up old TV's and other items) I do like that people leave their fired brass lying around to add to my reloading room.... :clap: While we were doing the shooting for the project a nice elderly gentleman came by to see what we were up too. He let me test fir his FN40, and EMP9mm as well as his S&W 357 revolver with his reloads. He told us where he lived and told us to stop by and he would give us extra rods and diffusers for the chronograph. We had a nice long chat about his time in Korea at the chosin reservoir and my time in the Corps. After he left we realized while we were packing up that he left his revolver in the bed of my truck. we promptly delivered it to him at his residence which was about 2 miles away and right across the street from a buddy of mines house. He gave me the parts for the chronograph we had a couple of beers and his reloading room made me extremely jealous. Long story short we now have a new shooting and reloading buddy to hang out with. I plan to post the results from the shooting for the science project in the press therapy forum here on ZS just as soon as I can figure out how to post a spreadsheet without the fields shifting.
Regulators mount up.
