    I was just asked by a work buddy, if I would be interested in buying a Hungarian FEG Makarov PA63 9mm off his girlfriend for short money.

    I'm driving to Ohio for the 4th of July. While I'm there, I'll have the opportunity to shoot at an awesome sporting clays facility. I'd love to bring one of my shotguns, instead of renting one of their house guns for $20. And put that toward ammo. Driving rte 90 cross upstate NY, Penn, and...

    Heading down to Addieville to try out my first sporting clays course. Any tips from those who have been? Curious about things like what a full round costs? I know website says .47¢ bird, but are there other fees? Do you rent a cart or walk and lug your stuff around, so bring a wheelie? Round...
  11. Shooting Glasses for Skeet?

    I'm looking for a recommendation on a pair of shooting glasses for Skeet, that sit higher on the face and don't block my view of the window in the high house, like the average pair of glasses do. I'm no 'Chief-tuc-buck-a-way', but I can't afford a pair of the Pilla's or Randolphs' that cost as...

    Building up a 10/22 plinker and next on the list is a bipod. Any favorites? Stock is an Archangle Deluxe Target, so lots of mounting options. Thanks. –A. Here is a crappy iphone pic.
  14. Trap shooters...to Steel or not to Steel?

    That is the question... Can I shoot steel shot through my fixed Full choked 870 tc trap gun? I've been invited to shoot at a range that is steel only, and would be bummed if I can't use my gun, but WAY MORE bummed if I damaged it. Thanks. –A. *Sorry if I posted in wrong place, but figured...
  15. 870 shotgun questions?

    I have a new to me, 70's era 870 tc trap gun with a 30" fixed full choke. Will shooting steel loads thru it, kill my gun? If steel is a bad idea thru the full choke, am I better off getting the barrel tapped to except a variety of chokes or just get another dedicated barrel, if I want/need...

  19. A couple of cleaing questions?

    Six months ago I purchased my first pistol. A Glock 2nd Gen G-19 from gfaTECH in Natick. (Nice guys, check 'em out!) And since then I have easily put 1,500 to 2,000 rounds through it, if not more. I usually give it a full clean, anytime after 200 to 400 rds. And will run a bore snake through it...
  20. Ruger 10/22's!!!!

    I'm getting ready to go pull the trigger on Ruger 10/22. But there are just too many models to make choosing one easy. I'm leaning toward the bull barreled Target model, as I just love the way it looks and that's all I'll be using it for. (but no irons sights option is negative to me.) So...
