New elk hunter with some questions

So I'm in central Utah, looking for a spike. I'm not much of a hunter, and my buddy that bought the tag, bought otc on a whim, kind of, isn't an elk hunter. So for the last week we'very gone out when possible, before sun up and then late afternoon til dark. We'very seen a ton of poop, old and very f...

Re: Shotgun for HD and BO, you dont feel out-gunned?

Some very good points. First off I don't buy the statement "...chances are that if you needed that shotgun (in a emergency/disaster situation/civil unrest, where you are in or threatened with a gun fight) you will likely be facing an AR or similar rifle" I know lots of people that own guns and I thi...

Shotgun for HD and BO, you dont feel out-gunned?

I see that many people advocate for a shotgun as your one HD and bug out gun, because of the versatility. Which is a very valid point. But with the proliferation of the AR, chances are that if you needed that shotgun (in a emergency/disaster situation/civil unrest, where you are in or threatened wit...

Re: Ok, I need help with AR gas system lengths.

Well its not so much that im worried about recoil in the sense that its violent or anything, but I figure if I can get the recoil down as low as possible for quick follow ups shots, staying on target etc, why wouldn't I?

Ok, I need help with AR gas system lengths.

Ive been reading for a week, and to say Im overwhelmed is an understatement lol. Im wanting to build or buy an AR. After shopping around to price out my ideal rifle its pushing $1000, which is more than I want to spend. Granted it would be one bad A rifle. My real end goal was a lightweight, 16 inch...

Re: Mossberg MVP - Anybody got one

He said .223 or .308 so the caliber argument already ongoing is stupid. My problem with the MVP, is while the AR mags are cool, what is the real point? Course maybe I just answered my own question, I don't really see it being worth the money just for the detachable mag perk, but how many other bolt ...

Re: So while watching Top Shot, I figured out why HK is best

So if more movement means the ability to soak up recoil, which means more accuracy...

Why are bolt actions, for the most part, more accurate than semi auto or full auto rifles?

So take this for what its worth as a late night rambling.

Re: Can you get 13 rounds out of a SR9Cs 10 round mag?

It would definitely take some modifying. I think there would be enough room though, a PX4 compact and other compacts of the same size carry 13. So the magazine wouldn't be any larger physically, Im just wondering if there is something that could be ground down or whatever.
