So, my father gave me my great-grandfather's pocket knife yesterday, his initials OGW are engraved in the handle, It's cool, but I don't know much about it and my internet search didn't turn up much. On the blades, each one has a stamp:
Which, after my search, I believe is...
I need to order some 9mm target/range ammo and was thinking about Federal Syntech 147grain:
Federal Ammunition - Syntech Training Match - AE9SJ3
Have any of you tried this stuff and have anything good or bad to report?
Sorry for the short notice, I only found out myself yesterday. There's a job fair for Veterans at Gillette today from 11 -3pm, learn more about it and register for it here:
Greater Boston Veterans Job Fair for Military Veterans
I'll be there!
My eyes aren't what they used to be and I like fiddling with my guns. Mostly I don't make changes that can't be reversed on my firearms, but since the 92FS is plentiful, I didn't see any harm in having the slide drilled and tapped.
I started off by ordering a sight mount from this guy:
I just picked up a new Colt Gold Cup, my father mentioned that his when he bought it (20 ish years ago) came with different springs for for either regular ball ammo or Semi Wad-Cutter target loads.
Well, mine did not come with different springs and the manual wasn't much help (unless I missed...
Thinking about getting a red dot like a Vortex Venom or maybe a Burris FastFire for one of my handguns. My initial thought was the smaller dot would provide for better accuracy (assuming I'm up tot the task), but I've been reading that for a handgun you should go with 6 moa vs 3.
I'm Looking to get a knife for a very good friend for his birthday. I've been on ZT's and Benchmade's sites, any reason to get one over the other? I'm not a knife guy, but my friend is. My budget for this gift is up to $300, looking for a good folder for EDC. Spring assisted is...
I have a Mark II Government Target and I want to put a red-dot optic of some sort on it. It is not drilled for scope mounts so my option is to drift out the rear sight and use that dovetail to put in some sort of mount. I tried doing that in the past, I drifted in a block, then...
I've been struggling with when the 'right' time to sell a firearm is. Not all decisions are a struggle of course, some are easy, like when you have a pistol or rifle that's in or recently out of production and have no love for it. But, what about some of the 'heirloom' pieces in your...
Just wanted to relate my experience renewing my LTC in Hudson, in a nutshell, it was fantastic! My current LTC expires next month, so I picked up the paperwork on March 11th, went home, filled it out and returned to the police station with it. They made an appointment for me to come...
I have a Ruger Mark II Government Target that is not drilled and tapped for a scope mount. I'd like to keep it as original as possible, or at least only make mods that can be reversed, so I don't want to drill and tap it. I tried mounting a weaver style rail that fit over a post installed in...
So.. I understand the 'straight-thumbs' technique is probably the best, but I can't seem to get comfortable with it at all and end up resorting to 'thumb over thumb' technique as described by this article by the end of each of my range sessions...
Finally finished off my first AR, got lots of good information from the board here, thanks for that!
It's a Colt CAR HBAR Elite with the following mods:
Magpul sniper stock
DPMS ergo pistol grip
Leupold mark AR 6-18x scope
Timney 3lb skeleton-ized trigger
