They work well within the limitations of the gauge/bore. Even a Federal Premium 3" .410 carries only 11/16ths of an ounce of 7 1/2 shot. Makes it only a twenty yard proposition on grouse. You know that the stock has a sliding trap for four shells?

however, when I saw this savage I couldent resist
My dad gave me a Bushnell Sport View scope
I sighted it in at 50 yards and was getting .5" groups

I plan to take it to the range tommorow and get it out to 100


Perhaps you should take it back and buy some sheets and a comforter

hey gatta cut back somewhere...

but naw I just got back from a lake trip, and I was changing bedding

I took it down to the range today for the first time.
Got it in close, I had a decent wind which i think accounts for the right lean of everything. I didnt want to adjust till i had a calm day.

100 yards
Savage 17 HMR

My brother has an M1 Garand and an Enfeild Mark 4.

I don't have any pics of them, but they are a blast to shoot. Man, that Garand has some serious kick.

I have a .40 cal USP, I like it, but looking to trade it for something I can carry. (I'm not a big dude by any means) I'm also looking at building an AR, any suggestions? Any first hand experience with the new piston uppers?

I had a CMP Garand and it was a real blast to shoot. That and my K98k's made for a fun afternoon. My dad won a M1 National Match as a trophy rifle at Perry way back when. Absolutely a beautiful rifle.

<3 M1 Garands...

Anyway, here are a few pictures of a recent shooting session I had with a few friends.


Friend's GF shooting my G22. She was actually giving my friends pointers, I was quite impressed.


How cute, a couple shooting some .22s.


Only took me 15 shots to get the slide in action...


S&W .357 hamerless combat revolver...


$%&^ extraction jam...


Finally, one of me shooting the G22.

www.brownells.com I've had thirty good years of dealing with these folks.

If you go to a piston upper, you basically change the gun and trade a Stoner design for a bastard Kalashnikov. This is fine, if you know more about firearms design than Eugene Stoner did. My $.02.

hit the rummage sales came home with this



just fired 2 pellets and put 4 holes in a 8oz soda can... i'll see how it groups when i have the time but it's all i wanted for a backyard rifle... the weight and size of a real firearm (both my daisy 880 and my romanian cheapo have that "toy gun" weight and it feels weird) and a spring piston action

can you put a 30 rounder in that or are you limited to 5-10 round magazines?
post #269 of 1611
You can put a 100 round drum in it if you want. We don’t have magazine restrictions here in Washington State. Aesthetically a 20 round magazine would be about right.

When you get it finished, concealed carry that thing under a trenchcoat. Bwahahaha.

BTW, isn't the transfer fee for a Short Barreled Shotgun only 5 bucks?
