    Just got this 30 minutes ago in the mail, came home to meet UPS guy. Wow. Nice rifle! Gustloff Werke factory, 1940 German 98k Russian captured, with 2 Nazi style eagles over swastika markings. My camera seriously sucks, I did the best I could with it! [wink] Bad picture, 1940 is...
  2. Best Use of Range Time Question

    There is a local public range run by the state of RI that's free to go to and about 10 minutes from my house. 50 yards, well maintained, 10 covered stations, really nice. However, tons of rules there- - no centerfire rifles - no drawing from holster - 2 seconds between shots etc...

  4. K31 Basic Questions

    I'm looking at getting my first K31, but don't know much about them. I'm interested in what to look for if I'm buying online.

  7. Worried about my new Sig P250C .40

    I picked up my NIB Sig P250C .40 yesterday and couldn't wait to get to the range today. I cleaned and oiled it last night in preparation for today. What a weird/disappointing/worrisome experience. It was jamming all over the place. Feed problems. MANY FTEs, like every 6th round or so. I...

    Question- what are some tips/techniques for managing recoil on bigger handguns such that one might be able to shoot somewhat accurately, especially on consecutive shots?

  9. Saving Brass- Non-Reloader Easy Question

    Question from a non-reloader- I know myself well enough to know that I will never reload, at least not until I retire in 20 years. Hardly enough time for shooting, let alone reloading. I used to just toss my brass in the brass bin at the ranges/clubs I go to, but I've started saving all my...

    On the front page of the NY Times online edition, there is no mention of the nationwide Tea Parties. However, there is a feature on how the U.S. is responsible for the gun violence by Mexican drug gangs. They have a nice 9 photo spread with U.S. gun shops followed by pictures of coffins in...

  14. Shocking Spate of Knife Violence Shakes America

    There have been a shocking number of violent, bloody assaults and murders across America these past few days. These killing sprees with sharpened blades is outrageous and should not be tolerated. If only America weren't so maniacally obsessed with with these gleaming instruments of death and...
