  1. Two part question about ejection port covers

    I'm a dork and want to get my AR's ejection port cover engraved. Does anyone know a place where I can have one done? Laser preferred unless there's another way. Also is there anything out there other than a standard mil spec port cover? Is there a billet cover or something better on the...
  2. Like father, like son...

    Some of you may remember seeing my post in the April additions thread. For those of you who missed the story behind my GP100 you can read it here. http://northeastshooters.com/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=881329&postcount=156 I went to N.C. to visit my parents last week and enjoyed some...
  3. .357 Mag

    What is a "normal" price for 50 rounds of .357 mag? I got two boxes of 158grn hollowpoints for $17 each from Collectors when I bought my GP100. Since then the only 158grn I've seen has been $50 a box for soft points, or $30 at Dicks for the same stuff. This is IN. SANE. Am I unrealistic...
  4. Millett DMS

    I'm thinking about picking up a DMS, but I'm concerned about the size. Every picture I've seen looks like the scope is enormous. I've seen pictures of two different versions. One is really long, and the other has a knob on top of the eyepiece and looks like it's much shorter. I want the...
  5. Help needed with .223 (SUCCESS!)

    Ok, I've got 99% of the gear needed to load .223. Just a few questions. 1 - I have a Dillon case length gauge for .223. If the case fits into the case gauge without the neck sticking out the end I can just load it without trimming correct? Or As long as the case isn't longer than the spec'd...
  6. Marlin 1895sbl

    Anyone have any thoughts on this rifle? Looks pretty friggen cool. I've got an itch for some recoil and was thinking of picking up a firearm for camping/backpacking in case some dangerous wildlife decided to join the party. http://www.marlinfirearms.com/firearms/bigbore/1895SBL.asp I...
  7. AR in .338?

    For some reason I'm dying to build an AR in .338 Lapua. I've got an AR in 5.56 already but I want something that can reach out there and put some hurt on whatever I'm point it at. Is it possible to build an AR in .338 Lapua like you can with a 5.56? Anyone done it?
  8. My First reloads! Updated with AAR!

    I wanted to formally thank Bigdaddy45acp AKA "Tiny" for coming by and teaching me the ins and outs of the reloading process as well as getting my new rig up and running. I couldn't have done it without him. I also wanted to thank everyone on the forum who have helped, and offered their...
  9. What's up with GOAL?

    My intent here isn't to bash GOAL per se, but rather to gain some understanding of why they do what they (seemingly to me) do. Why does GOAL continuously file bills like the new B&E a firearm retailer bill, where there are already laws on the books. Isn't this what we complain about with the...
  10. Midway shipping charges

    There I was sitting in front of my monitor, basking in its cold luminescence having changed my mind on what reloading press to order and canceling yet another order. I log into Midway and load a LNL into my shopping cart, while thinking to myself "How could I possibly be any more badass? Oh...
  11. Buying a Hornady (Edit: Midway hosed me, ordered a Dillon instead!)

    I'm ordering a Hornady LNL AP from Midway today so I can take advantage of the 1000 free bullets offer and I'm freakin frustrated. Maybe I'm just retarded but I can't figure out what other parts I have to buy to make the press work. I want to start loading .45ACP and eventually .223 after...
  12. More problems getting a Class A (update 12/23)

    I just recently moved to a Green town from what is the epitome of a B rammer. My sole reason for moving was to get a Class A ALP. I called today to schedule an appointment to get my new license rolling and was told that: 1 - I cannot have two LTC's. I know this but I'm not planning...
  13. 50 BMG $3.50 a round

    Midway has 50BMG on sale 100 rounds for $349.99 They won't ship ammo to MA but I thought the free staters might like a friendly heads up. http://www.midwayusa.com/eproductpage.exe/showproduct?saleitemid=265535&eblastid=103120083&custnum=102081764&utm_source=bigimage&utm_medium=special103120083
  14. Liger gun belt

    I'm starting to think about a holster and belt. I know I need a stiff belt or the holster will sag or flop. Does anyone have any experience with the Liger gun belt from Maxpedition? Or have another suggestion on a dressy / classy looking belt? One that could be worn with a suit, or in...
  15. It's ON (1911 story) Pic heavy

    I finally got around to ordering a bunch of parts to start the customization of my SW1911PD last week. They finally arrived this morning and I've been spending the day gunsmithing! I just finished fitting everything so that the gun functions, I need a break before I go back and polish...
  16. 1911 tools

    I'm about to order a bunch of parts from midway to start work on my 1911 commander project now that the gun is broken in. I need some advice from those who've been there about what tools I need. I'm going to be replacing the trigger shoe/bow (not doing action work) slide stop, thumb safety...
  17. AR 15 chamber

    What is the trick to getting the chamber of an AR15 clean? I've got a ton of crap built up in-between the lugs and the breech of the barrel. How do you get inside there?
  18. Now that's a muzzle blast!

    From the car shoot - I had no idea my rifle's muzzle could create modern art masterpieces! Go green and you may learn things like this! [laugh] Credit to Hanwei for the pictures. Excellent job!
  19. GP100 - rant

    I've been looking for a Ruger GP161 and I want the blued version. I just found out that I can't buy the blued version in MA; only the Stainless model is available. That's a whole new level of absurd! [angry] It's a fricken COLOR not the addition of a fully automatic 87 thousand grain rocket...
