    Cameras aren't on ranges so somebody can spy on you while you shoot. They're there so if something f***y happens, they might be able to see who was there and know who might be responsible for said f***y happenings.
  4. ‘The Big One Is Coming’ and the U.S. Military Isn’t Ready

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the last invasion of the US by a foreign military power was 210 years ago. That isn't going to happen.
  5. ‘The Big One Is Coming’ and the U.S. Military Isn’t Ready

    That's Cold War thinking. China has no desire nor capability to invade us. They just need to neutralize us. We're well on our way to being neutralized.
  6. Building/cutting out a 200yd Holler-Top Shooting Range! I need expertise from engineers, woodsmen and short to mid range shooters.

    200 yards is shorter than you think. Basic compass and orienteering will keep you straight: Get a good direction (38 degrees, not "basically Northeast"), pick out a tree, walk to it, flag it, pick out another tree on that compass heading, repeat.
  7. Building/cutting out a 200yd Holler-Top Shooting Range! I need expertise from engineers, woodsmen and short to mid range shooters.

    What's that field in back of your impact zone? How large are the trees that need to be cut? Once the trees are cut, what's your plan for keeping that lane open? It'll grow back very quickly unless you keep it mowed or something. Go at least twice, maybe 3 times as wide as you think you'll...
  8. Pelham Fish & Game Club Land Sale

    I believe I said "Nail down a zero". The shooter in question is rated a High Master in Across the Course, Mid-Range, and Long Range. 495 Club, 792 Club, 990 Club, as well as a former Hard Gun on the Army Reserve Team. I can pretty much guarantee his first round would be no worse than a 8 on...
  9. Budged-ish 22 build ?

    Guy up the road from me owns the World Record for Sporter Class; Gary Hamilton. His is a Cooper action with (I think) a cedar stock. Friggin thing doesn't weigh 5 lbs. But, he's got thousand$ wrapped up in it. On the more affordable side, I think those options you initially listed are the...
  10. Budged-ish 22 build ?

    So benchrest? At what distance? It makes a difference in recommendations.

    It wasn't Bob who ran this match I'm talking about. It was some other clown. Bob would have let him (Brian M) shoot if he was running it.

    Funny Pelham story: they advertised on their website a 600yd prone match. It said "Pelham members are encouraged to attend". My buddy up here wanted to nail down a zero on a rifle he had just put a new front sight on. He drove down, 2-1/2 hours, and the gate is closed. He waits a few minutes...
  13. Budged-ish 22 build ?

    What kind of competition? Distance? Target? Position?
  14. I need a spotting scope

    I just thought anybody else who was looking into spotting scopes would learn something about the difference in eyepieces, no matter what brand scope they were looking at.
  15. I need a spotting scope

    A good article from Creedmoor about eyepieces. https://creedmoorinfozone.com/five-important-things-you-need-to-know-about-spotting-scope-eye-pieces/
