Off Season Lets Talk Guns

Been a while since we had a guns n' ammo discussion.


Some of you are AR shooters Im sure. Im looking at a Colt 6920. Will be my first AR. Picked up a Glock this fall and really enjoy shooting it. Any feedback on that weapon?



Anyone else been in a buy/sell/trade mood with hardware?

Fun as shit to shoot, and dirt cheap. My brother and I will go to the range and shoot our normal 9mm's etc, then at the end, we'll play with the .22; and who ever reachs 50 (or whatever we decide) from X distance and wins by 2, buys lunch/BBQ on the way home. Good times.
I thought about that Walther too but kinda got turned off by a buddy of mine that had issues with his. I would think they would have it worked out by now.

IMO, those Taurus 1911's are one of the best values in the 1911 market. I've shot several and all have shot extremely well compared to the other lower priced 1911's out there. I really like them.

Bolted my new safe to the floor today...w00t! Pretty simple: they have pre-drilled holes through the steel. Pop off a couple of plastic caps inside the safe, drill, lag-bolt, done. This fugger isn't moving anywhere

I have a Walther P22. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I have about 10,000 rounds through it. At 3,000 rounds I had to send it to Smith and Wesson to replace the extractor. It is a good training analogue, and it is hard to be upset when it has done as well as it has over this period of time. However, it isn't really a Walther. It is an Umarex gun with Walther's name on it.

If I were going to recommend a 22 pistol it would always be the Ruger Mk III which I own, or the Browning Buckmark, which I have shot extensively. They are the two best offerings unless you start talking about high end target pistols.

Anyone considering a cheaper 1911 should check out Dawson Precision. They have entry level STIs for $645. These cheaper models are manufactured overseas, but quality-checked here. STIs are comparable, if not superior, in quality to Kimbers. And the ones manufactured here start at around $1,000, which will probably be my next purchase.

I looked at building an AR in 6.8 spc, which amounts to .270 round vs the .308 of 7.62, and from what I read the bolts are pretty prone to limited life span due to how the bolts are made to deal with the 6.8 case. Something about just not enough metal.

So instead I'm in the midst of building an AR in 300 Blackout.

My friend built one, and it was fairly accurate to 300.

He likes it.

Unbelievable control from a fully automatic weapon!

Lighter than a M249 SAW. Why did they phase the Stoner 63 out?

From what I have seen, a guy can still find 9mm out there but 10mm is tough. I had bought 900 rounds of 10mm last summer before crap hit the fan. Even 500 S&W was drying up two weeks ago. I found 6 boxes at Cabelas when I was in there and picked them up, so I now have 350 rounds of that as well for dinking around.

With all that being said, the price of your ammo was as good as it gets.

Score. Went to a gun show this weekend and ammo prices were through the roof. Can't beat free.

Sweet. A buddy of mine did one of these too. That would be a major cool factor being able to say you actually machined your own.
