    Stricken by choice....... Thanks
  2. Shotguns
    Just picked up my first shotgun (Remington 870 Express). I am a shotgun newbie. Can anyone recommend a good intro course to help me get more familiar with this beauty? Looking for a course in Rochester area. Thanks
  3. Rifles
    I've got a 22LR pistol and 10/22 rifle that can share ammo with the pistol. I've recently purchased 9 mm and 45 ACP pistols. I'd like to use the ammunition in other platforms. So, I figured that I'd solicit opinions for possible carbines that use these calibers. I have no background in...
  4. Off-Topic
    Was looking online today at Stack on, Husky, Craftsman and Kobalt. Any other places to look (Northern Tool, etc.)? Want one for ammo that needs to be reasonably secure. A few more for tools, circular saws, etc. Maybe one for flamable liquids (mineral spirits, lacquer thinner, etc). What do...
  5. Shooting Ranges
    I will be in Vegas in January for work and would like to hit a range to try some guns not available to us here (full auto, etc). Does anyone have any range experience or recommendations in Vegas? Not going to have a ton of free time and I may only get a chance to hit one so I'd like to make a...
  6. Accessories and Gear
    I have a new mini 30, and need to figure out which way to go with glass. I'm using Weaver see-through rings (at the moment)...which barely allow the irons to be used, but they are there, and I do like the ability to have irons if there is a failure. I like Warne QD rings, but in a fast moving...
  7. Rifles
    I am already planning for my next rifle purchase. I really wanted to buy an all American Springfield M1 but they are banned in NYC under the AWB by name... I found as a second choice that LBR makes a NYC compliant M14 variant called Sporter which does not have any of the evil features and only...
  8. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    Anyone have a recommendation for a taxidermist on the island or within a reasonable drive? Shot a nice 8 pointer
  9. Other Weapons
    Hey folks, after finding out my knife Ive been using is about 80 years old, decided I should retire her and get a new fixed blade. I'll start off by saying I know next to nothing about knives, the one I had last was an imperial I bought for $16 at a gun show. So anywho I'm looking for...
  10. Rifles
    My son wants a scope for his Henry lever action .22. Uses include target shooting 50-100 yards. I know very little about scopes in general. Any recommendations on which one to get and where to get it? Thanks in advance...
  11. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    I was going to put this in the carry/conceal or handgun forum, but it probably makes the most sense here, since it is specifically related to hunting. Does anyone else hunt big game with a pistol and have recommendations for a good holster? I'm looking for a holster for a Ruger Super Redhawk 44...
  12. Handguns
    Expecting a ccw soon (at least restricted PP) and I was lookIng at Glock 23 also intrested in in M&P40. Anyone have any opinions on Kimbers? Too many options, to many choices Any thoughts?
  13. Shotguns
    Greeting Everyone, Was looking for some advice regarding a home defense shot gun. We all know how stringent New York's laws are, so please only suggestions that are legally compliant. Any and all suggestions are welcome. If I could elaborate, I'm looking for something: 1) a bit on the compact...
  14. Off-Topic
    Recently bought a new truck. So what do you guys recommend to cover the back? I need something that will keep clothes/ camping gear/ groceries dry in bad weather. Had a button down vinyl cover on my last truck but it was a pain to use (esp in winter months) and I wound up keeping it rolled up...
  15. Off-Topic
    I'm admittedly a bit of a book nerd... So naturally I noticed when someone mentioned Massad F. Ayoob as a good author when it comes to personal defense and firearms. I did a bit of digging and found some books put out by U.S. Concealed Carry Association that looked like they had promise. Has...
  16. Off-Topic
    It's time for a new stove for backpacking and I'm looking for suggestions. My current one uses white fuel from a fuel bottle that I fill and pump the top to create the pressure needed in the bottle. Today I was looking at the MSR pocket rocket which just attaches to a pre-filled fuel canister...
  17. Ammunition and Reloading
    I need some help here. Will Lee shell holders work in other brands? For instance, I hear that only hornady shell holders will work in the hornady trimmer. Anything to watch out for? Thanks in advance.
  18. Rimfire Handguns and Rifles
    I am looking to pick up a new Buckmark pistol and I am looking for some advice from other Buckmark owners on what rounds they have had the most success with, both from reliability and accuracy. I know that semi auto .22's I have had in the past have been a little 'fickle' when trying to cycle...
  19. Shotguns
    Back in the days when deer hunting with a rifle was illegal, I bought a new Mossberg 695 bolt-action 12 gauge. Basically, it's a shotgun that acts like a rifle. At 100 yards, I've hit 2-inch groups consistently with copper sabots. She has helped harvest a lot of venison over the years and I...
