Re: I have a question

I bought a Ruger 10/22 new about two and a half years ago, in an attempt to get into shooting. However, just after I bought it, I moved to where I live now, and I was so busy with school that I never got a chance to enroll in the local gun club. Now, I am finally in a position to get that membershi...

This touches politics but anyone interested in 2A stuff should read up on the ruling Cody Wilson just got.

Re: Pickled Eggs & Sausage

Great stuff!

I need to retry pickled eggs I think...last time I had one was part of an initiation drink that involved whiskey as well.

How long will they keep if properly sealed? Indefinitely?

Re: Survival of the Richest?

"Food for thought" is not an acceptable topic title - it's a bit click bait esque and tells us nothing about what you posted - I renamed it... This article got a lot of traction across the web.

Re: Firearms Chat 5: #pewpewlife

So far I've only missed 1 rifle match this year (they run once a month) and am slowly seeing improvement. I started off with a rifle I'd never zero'd and panicked about hitting steel at any realistic distance and finishing either dead last or in the bottom 5. This match I had two fuck-ups a Miss and...

Re: The Coming Civil War

Folks , can we not cut and paste clearly political tomes. Put a link to and a political label on it but quoting the politics is being poltical. The discussion of how to prepare and the impact of such events is ok. Posting the politics of it is not. Strongly echoing this. OK Example: This article I ...

Just to give you an idea if only 2% of the population decided to become insurgents that would be twice as many people currently in all military units active and reserve, as well as all police agencies at all levels in the entire country. I don't disagree with this sentiment at all just throwing wha...

Wester CO has quite a lot of hunting and fishing, is VERY gun friendly and Grand Junction has a pretty good sized hospital and a decent overlander presence if that is your scene, but watersports is pretty conspicuously absent.

Another thing I learned at this match: My pistol (M&P 9) has a red fiber optic front sight. This is the first time, or at least the first time in a really long time, that I've had it out in full, mid-day, no clouds in the sky, Texas sun. That red fiber optic was bigger than an Aimpoint dot, and act...
