    My southern tactical, lots of mags and design your own. Price is meh, but the lulz are high for me so I count it a decent trade off.

    I like the nags as well. Unlike other parts of the gun they are easy to swap out.

    No Step on Snek is the best one, by far.

    I feel like I should wear my new FPC shirt and go buy a firearm today.

    Or at the very least go window shop the used gun case

    Edit: a Ruger PC Carbine followed me home. I’ve swapped out the magwell to take Glock mags and now have a spare Ruger mag I’ve no need for, I think it’s for an SR9?

    Speed loader for the .38 will be here on Monday. Still looking at holsters.

    Are you planning on carrying your .38 or is this just for storing inside your safe with it?

    Y'know, I gotta get myself to an outdoor range. This 25m out thing is getting a little old...

    (that's 25m out, 9.5x scope, standing (but bipod deployed) RFB with OTC retail, non-match loads)

    I own a Springfield 1911 Operator. It's not the top, top shelf, but it's a great model that shoots pretty well and has options if I want to throw fun things on it. I tested a bunch of guns before I bought it, and while I know law enforcement swears by Glocks and 9mms, there's nothing that quite matches the crack of a .45. As an added bonus, the weight helps me stay on target. My hands just hate the plastic feel of some of those guns. They feel like toys.

    I wanted a mix of a gun for education, defense, and historical value, and I'm pretty happy so far.

    Storing, but I do want to be set up to have carrying be an option if needed.

    I’ve heard nothing but good about Springfield’s Operator (except for some folks calling it a little too tacticool), so I’m down to either one of those or a Sig Sauer Emperor Scorpion.

    I’m still up in the air about caliber. The TRP I shot was .45 and nice. And of course .45 is just a tradition for a 1911. But 9mm is so much cheaper...

    I shot clay pigeons today. Got 45/100, not bad for my first time shooting a shotgun.

    I had to shoot with one eye closed. If I try both open I get double vision of the barrel/sights. Any advice?

    It's just practice. It takes deliberate training just like any other aspect of shooting.

    I've been thinking about the PC carbine but I'm still waiting to see if Magpul does the X22 backpacker stock for it.

    It was either going to be that or the Kel Tec RDB Survival, and if I go Ruger I can save myself $400 even with the X22 stock.

    The only thing is it has a two piece guide on the slide, so I need a 5/32” allen wrench to get that loose for cleaning. But, I like the gun is high maintenance, it just means I need to know how to operate it better.

    I shot around 115 rounds through it this morning. Left all my crap at the house though, like binos or spotting scope. The stock I like as is, could use some refinement and I’m sure somebody will put out a replacement.

    Was shooting it at 50 yards and was shooting to the right, didn’t have the necessary tools or patience to adjust the sights on it.

    It was fun to shoot! Range was busy and I shot enough mags through it to decide it works well enough as is until I can have the time get it rock solid, maybe throw a dot on there when I do that.

    Here's a photo of the lr308 cerakoted up. I'm driving back to Texas and stopped long enough to post the picture. I just got back to Texas and could finally post the picture.

    The next step is to get an optic and transfer the canted iron sights from one of my .556 rifles to this one, and put some non-canted iron sights to replace.

    Reddit's r/gundeals found my ammo so I'm stocked up for the foreseeable future. Now to install my new hand guard and VG6 muzzle break. Do you think I'll have to re-zero? Surely I will, the damn barrel has to come off to attach the new nut for the hand guard and the break might make some difference.

  • [Paragon][Paragon] I'm a real doctor, for pretend! Registered User regular
    I haven't yet found a brake to change POI but I have a limited sample size so anything is possible I guess.

    HKS speedloader doesn't fit my .38. Anyone know of a speedloader that fits a Rock Island M200, or if it can use moon clips without needing to alter the cylinder?

    Edit: never mind, dumb question. Can see when it's loaded there's no room for a moon clip.
