  1. .458 Quackenbush DOQ Air Rifle

    Math IS hard dhuze but you must be pretty good at finding Waldo. I have a Mass bear tag but according to pupchow's chart .458 is to large of a caliber not that I see many bear. That sure is a nice looking rifle dh and I understand they require very little maintenance except for a couple of O...
  2. .458 Quackenbush DOQ Air Rifle

    I think I did hit the lottery dhuze because the DOQ .458 I'm getting is new and unfired. I'm glad that it's the .458 and not .30 caliber. I have hundreds of pounds of range lead and I already cast .45 so I should be able to produce all the bullets I need. May need a mold other than my 240gr .45...
  3. Suggest first crossbow

    I would be very careful with an off the shelve big box store crossbow. You would be much better off looking for a used Excalibur Vixen or Phoenix. Withdraw weights of 200 and 225 lb the arrow is going to go through anything you shoot. Also Excalibur has a lifetime warranty that goes with the bow...
  4. .458 Quackenbush DOQ Air Rifle

    They say the ballistics of the .458 is on par with a .45 ACP but will shoot a 300 grain bullet. I've been told I need to get a carbon fiber tank if I want it filled to the max pressure and they apparently make a tank the size of a two liter bottle. I've seen it hand pumped and it's a lot of work...
  5. Suggest first crossbow

    Excalibur is your crossbow. I have both the Phoenix and the vixen and with both of them I measure penetration on a deer by how far it goes into the tree behind them after a pass through. Like horizontal Hunter says you don't need a bow press you can have extra strings pre stretched and ready to...
  6. .458 Quackenbush DOQ Air Rifle

    It's been awhile since my interest in buying a new weapon was triggered. I'm not a collector although I have a collection but with a dozen handguns ranging from .22 to 9mm and .45's as well as a rifle or shotgun for pretty much anything that walks North America there just hasn't been anything...
  7. VP9 has a nice trigger but why???

    ok Hoover. I put the trigger pull scale back on the vp9and I was wrong. The trigger breaks at exactly 10 pounds. I must have mistaken a clean smooth trigger with a light trigger. Noxin... interesting enough the vp9 does not have an external safety unless the trigger qualifies. It reminds me of...
  8. VP9 has a nice trigger but why???

    I have a VP9 as do a few buds and they all seem to have come with a trigger in the 5lb range rather than the mandated 10lb monsters. Why is that? Non of my other striker handguns had sweet triggers out of the box so WTH? I guess it will never make any sense and I'm still trying to figure out the...
  9. Couple of bullet casting questions please.

    I just started casting my own bullets and it seems to be going great. At this point I'm using a 9mm Lee tumble lube 124g LRN mold and a 4-20 pot. Ive got buckets of indoor range lead. I shouldn't be finding brass jackets but I'm finding tons. What would you think the hardness level is and...
  10. Sonic cleaner

    I was using the ultrasonic for pistol parts until I was shown a fine pistol with the blueing badly damaged. I was sceptical it was ruining the blueing until my Smith said the same thing. Funny thing is that I just bought a new handgun and it's says no ultrasonic cleaners. I've also tried...
  11. Looking for a 9mm with a small/thin grip.

    Thanks for the guidance folks. I've had her shooting the S&W pro series 1911 and it's not a bad choice. I could put thin grip panels on it but reaching the magazine release is still going to be a challenge. I'm also not sure where it would fit into idpa. No good for ssp and can't use it in cdp...
  12. Stray bullet from angle tree hits house

    Our club had a neighbor call the police as well as the club to report there was a bullet in his driveway and that it had hit his garage. It was a serious matter so a few board members went with the police to investigate. What had hit his garage was an empty shell casing from a 30-30. After we...
  13. Looking for a 9mm with a small/thin grip.

    My 22 YO daughter has been joining me at the range and I'm thrilled. She has been expressing an interest in idpa. She took her safety course 10 years ago but I have signed her up for another and told her if she took the course and got her license all she had to do was shoot in one idpa match and...
  14. Have you ever had your car searched by the Police

    Pulled over on 95 by a jack booted state cop for speeding and boy was I speeding. I thought I was required to tell him so I said I think you should know I have legal firearms in the trunk and I will open the trunk if you would like. He said NO let's just leave the trunk closed. He handed...
  15. IDPA hardcover target templates/standards

    In an effort to avoid any yard work I am happily going to be making a batch of hardcover as well as no shoot targets. left side, right side, slant left, slant right excetera. are there standards for making these hardcover targets? I guess I'm not certain where the slant should start and end. I...
