  1. My son turns 18

    Tell him happy birthday from me Rich! Joe R.
  2. Anyone been to Westwood Gun Club recently?

    The range road is fine. The only thing that will suck is that the target holding areas aren't shoveled to get out to set up a target - dress appropriately. Joe R.
  3. 96.9 upcoming discussion on gun control

    Brother Severin may own a firearm or two and might even carry one but he doesn't understand what it means to be a gun guy. He hasn't talked bad about guns but nobody has ever "interviewed" him hard enough to get his true beliefs out. When that day happens, I might have more respect for him...
  4. The HIKE UP YOUR SKIRT, It's New England...I'm at work today MEGA THREAD

    Made it on time today... just 5 of us in my department. Joe R.
  5. Largest Airsoft Retailer in a 60-90 mile radius of Boston?

    If you haven't already, take a look at: and check for shops. These people will know where to go to. Joe R>
  6. Thanks to Bob P

    It was one of his reloads. It just barely got into the rifling. Joe R.
  7. For those interested in Air Pistols

    Don't overlook a good air pistol to keep the skills up. I have 1 of the Russian IZH-45's that gets a workout when it's not windy outside ( I live in an apartment and don't need the neighbors interested in what that noise was!) and it shoots better than I can hold it. There isn't any excuses when...
  8. The Men Who Own and Run the U.S. Government

    +1 for Kamal's post above. Wear the helmut tight and take aspirin, but read what is happening there. The acronym is PIIGS for the countries hurting in Europe and the party is just getting started! Joe R.
  9. .22 Rifle...Ruger 10-22 vs. others....what to buy?

    Don't be afraid to look in the used gun sections of your favorite shops. As much as the 10/22 is so adaptable, it would be one of the first .22's I get rid of if I have to thin the herd. My favorite 3 are: 1) Winchester 75 ( bought at the Amoskeag auction for $300+ fees.) 2) CZ-452 3) H&R...
  10. Tough to wake up this morning

    Well, at least the sales tax on booze is gonna go away...for now. I had a discussion at the range a few days ago about what was going to happen in the election. I had hopes but pretty much knew what was going to happen. The people in MA aren't ready or able to vote to restore liberty/freedom...
  11. Happy Birthday 50BMG

    Happy Birthday Fred! Joe R.
  12. Just in case you need to raise your blood pressure a bit

    That's it right there. How can you get through to someone that is constantly looking for someone to take care of them? I haven't figured this one out yet and if I take a minute to think about it, I'm ready for it to just come crashing down by letting these people elect these...
  13. CT is in serious trouble

    You are getting quality candidates - LOW is also a quality! Joe R.
  14. M39 New Addtion

    Unless you happen to be in the same building with Fred - then it won't be there for long! :) Joe R.
  15. Loudest Milsurp Rifle?

    Try any one of the Mauser carbines in 8MM. Guy at the range had one of the Persian calvary (sp) carbines ( actually camel ) with Port. 198 grain loads in it. Damn that thing had some shock and awe to it, even beating one of the Mosin carbines for ommph! Joe r.
  16. Range pet peeves

    How many of you beside Eddie Coyle are the chief range officers/govenors at your club? I've been this at the Westwood Gun Club for a year now and you do really learn to overlook a lot of stupid stuff except for sweeping someone. I try to conduct myself as Patrick Swayze's charactor in "Road...
  17. Can you ID this rifle and uniform?

    Maybe she's from Norway people? You've listed all the groups that use that color and rifle and the only one that fits right is the Norwegian due to the G3. Yes, they are supposed to be using HK416's or something like that but would the reserve units or cadets have these rifles yet? I spent...
  18. Savage Model 10

    I like mine. It's an older version with the non-accutrigger and flat rear receiver. The price was $395 and it's a good shooter. I replaced the trigger with a Rifle Basix SAV-1 and it's really good for the money. Savage has good barrels and they can be easily swapped out if you don't get one that...
  19. MagLite in your carry on bag?

    I made it through TSA security with the Surefire C2 Centurion that I normally carry everyday. I put it in the box and ran it thru the X-ray and it made it. See if you can get a AA Fenix or equivilent light to take with you. Joe R.
  20. Depressing news in the housing market

    +1 on this. Paul Denniger put it this way and it's the way that I think of it. Homes are WAY overpriced and should be down to a more reasonable level before I'd even think of buying. Your home is a place to hang you hat on and keep the rain off of you - nothing more. Joe R>
