  1. Geisselle Ar triggers

    Good choice! I've also used my Spike's .22 upper with my match lower & Geissele. I understand that some hammers don't work well with the Spike's upper, but I've had no issues with mine. The .22 upper on my match lower makes for a pretty good training aid (the Troy sights I'd added aren't...
  2. Geisselle Ar triggers

    I'd considered a White Oak tuned Rock River trigger when buying my service upper from them, but ended up going with the Geissele. I asked John H about the differences between the two, and he basically said that the Geissele is superior. Of course, he's sells both, so... (shrug) Later, a buddy...
  3. Reading, MA 2010 Highpower Schedule

    Is club membership required to attend the practice sessions? I'm interested in attending CMP and LEG matches, but have no experience at 600yds. I know that the matches (or at least the ones I've looked at) are open to all attendees, but the practice descriptions don't mention who can attend...
  4. Southborough Rod and Gun Club

    I'd also be interested to learn more about Southborough, as I'm looking to join a local club (in addition to Harvard, which is great but a bit of a hike for me). I'm considering both SRG and Hopkinton. I haven't visited either club yet. The SRG website has a lot of info on the club's...
  5. Apparently Handguns are Ineffective at Close Range

    Sure, but I didn't say 30 feet, I said "at close range on the ground". I'm making an assumption that the cat was basically at his feet (or more likely a few feet away on a mound of dirt, given that it was a DPW garage). This scenario could result in a miss due to what the Chief described as...
  6. Callaghan Firearms Sales-Marlborough

    I've been there quite a few times, and don't recall any smoking. Besides, if Ross shops there, you know it's smoke-free [grin] Nice shop, friendly service
  7. Apparently Handguns are Ineffective at Close Range

    I've never tried to shoot an approx 4" dia target ("Center of Cat") at very close range and on the ground, but I expect I'd likely be off target for at least the first round. It's probably not a scenario they train for. I bet if the cat had been at chest height at 15 ft, he'd have nailed it.
  8. Jericho Appleseed, 8-9 Aug 2009

    I want to do the whole weekend, but I'm not sure I'll be able to make it on Saturday [sad] Since I've already done an Appleseed, do you think that it will be ok if I can only make Sunday? My uppers are zeroed (the .22 at 25yds and the AR at 100yds), so I'll probably just need a few minutes in...
  9. Harvard, Littleton and Nashoba

    I was a member at Nashoba a long time ago... junior member in the early 90s. I'd visited every weekend as a pup with my dad back when he'd shoot trap there in the 70s. Back then, it was quite the lively place (at least for trap). These days, it seems pretty dead, at least the few times I've...
  10. Jericho Appleseed, 8-9 Aug 2009

    Wow, I think I can actually make this one! I hope to lock it in this weekend. The Harvard shoot last year was a great time... I'm very excited about having a chance to apply what I've learned out to 600 yds! Just to confirm: if we bring .22lr for the short drills and centerfire for the long...
  11. When Being Tall Isn't An Advantage

    Given that "Big & Tall" is usually code for "Fat & Average", I can only assume that they went to a "Big & Tall" mortuary which only stocked caskets for up to 34" inseam. [/rant]
  12. Worst Movie of All Time

    I'll throw Zardoz on the pile. I thought it was enjoyable, but boy, was it bad. Memorable quote: "The gun is good! P*nis is evil!" Continuing the list of bad sci-fi, don't forget the twin Kostner pigs "Waterworld" and "The Postman". Basically the same plot in two different...
  13. Hollywood Movie Gun Boo-Boos

    The "Glock 7" I can forgive, as it was a fictionalized model used for narrative reasons. I'm sure they picked Glock as it's widely recognized even among non-gun people as being a plastic gun. OTOH, the stupid clicking/cocking/rattling sound effects every time a gun is pointed really gets on...
  14. Seems I've worn out my welcome over at Bike Forum with my gun ownership views.

    Well put. It's been several years since I've been on a bike, but back when I was, I had a couple of situations where people were going out of their way to try to intimidate me (one case where a guy drove up close behind my rear wheel, and another where someone pulled up along side and edged...
  15. Can any of you older guys hear this? SEE POST #57

    I can hear it just fine in my left ear, and can even make it out through the tinnitus in my right ear. It sounds like it's about the same tone as the one that jumps in from time to time in the background of the Severin show.
  16. Help with a college project... (Immigrant Interviews)

    Send me a PM, I'll pass them on.
  17. morning drive time : WBCN 104.1

    Weak analogy. If I'm expected to listen to advertisements as the price to pay for entertainment, I may or may not decide to do so. If those advertisements piss me off for whatever reason, I won't be entertained, and therefore will not listen. Pretty basic, really.
  18. morning drive time : WBCN 104.1

    I was listening to WBCN on my way home from the range today, and I heard a little snippet stuck in between two commercials which said something along the lines of "Imagine a world without guns". That was it... short, sneaky, almost subliminal. I'm now writing an email explaining to BCN why I...
