  1. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    So the Ol lady dropped on me yesterday she wants to bring our 5 year old to Florida in the Spring-got me thinking--Can I go to a Cabelas or Gander Mountain or Walmart buy some ammo down there and wrap and box it up and go to a post office or ups store and ship to my address? in a plain old usps...
  2. Long Range Precision Shooting
    To those who attended last years course offering a big thank you, we had fun seeing old friends and making new ones. Posted up our spring schedule for 2014 check the web site calendar for more details. Also look for a competition for later this summer, working with the Tactical Rifle League, I...
  3. The AR-15
    Just thought I would share this.... not my first build, but on the first range trip with the new build I had 4 out of 10 FTF....could not figure it out..bad primers..firing pin..etc. I checked all functions when I was assembling so what could be the problem.... Took it home and could still not...
  4. Curios and Relics
    Is their such a thing as an aftermarket new production spring for the enfield magazine? My cousin has the no4 mk1 variety and the spring is weak. The previous owner had stored the rifle with a full magazine. Any leads would be appreciated.
  5. DIY Projects and Builds
    I am starting my first ar build and I wanted to make the rifle NY complaint. However, the new NY complaint stock uses a carbine buffer tube. Can you build a mid rifle set up with mid rifle buffer and buffer spring inside of a carbine buffer tube? I know most people say that you should only...
  6. Handguns
    Topic, pretty much. Anyone have experience with Wolff springs for Glocks versus the OEM recoil spring?
  7. The AR-15
    I just got a BCG for a build and the o ring is included but not in the bolt. Should I use it? Why would it come this way? I got it from JoeBobs JoeBobOutfitters Premium Complete Bolt Carrier Group (M16/AR15 BCG)-MPI Tested Here it is out of the package, in case it matters.

  9. Off-Topic
    Anybody doing any landscaping / gardening lately? Been busting my butt the past two weekends getting the house in shape for my son's communion this weekend. Replaced a beautiful weeping birch that succumbed to the Oct storm year before last with a Japanese maple. That was a lot of work lol...
  10. Handguns
    I was cleaning my G17 yesterday when the small, thin disc broke off of the guide rod. I know Gen4s are under an RSA recall of which mine was not covered, but Glock is sending anyway since I've possessed the pistol for less than a year. My question is this: are there any other Glock owners...
  11. Off-Topic
    Evil little creature.....LOL...... After a complete investigation as to how " Punxsutawney Phil " got his information so wrong this year, this photo was discovered of " Phil " in the off - season down on some island. It seems Phil had a little to much wacky weed and this impaired his judgement ;-)
  12. Ammunition and Reloading
    From time to time I've seen threads on various forums complaining about the primer slide return spring on Dillon 550's. The factory spring works when everything is perfect, but doesn't return quickly enough on the upstroke when things are a little dirty, worn, or less than perfect. Replacing the...
  13. Hunting, Fishing and Trapping
    Title says it all. I hunt on a bunch of land (50 acres) in 8N. I live in Rochester, and hunt on my parents land. I've never hunted turkeys and am looking for someone that has experience calling in birds. I would like to meet up for a few days in May. I figure we can each take one bird. Check...

  16. Handguns
    I just purchased my first 1911, Kimber Pro Crimson Carry. I'm curious about lightening the weight of the 22 lb. recoil spring and what problems it could cause using 230 gr ammo. Would using a lighter bullet alleviate those problems any? The reason is my left hand lost an argument with a...
