    Hi, I'm looking for a new rifle for next season deer hunting. Came across a 308 I like but comes in 18" bull and 20" light weight. Can someone school me in barrel length.? will a short barrel loos a lot of velocity/accuracy? I'd like something good up to 300 yards. Thanks in advance.

  3. The AR-15
    Doing the biannual cleaning this week and I was playing with an AR I have and found it to be unnecessarily heavy on the front end.

    I have heard that there is some weird law that says a pistol cannot weigh more then 60 ounces (5lbs) unloaded in NYS. My question is, is that a real law? And if it is, does that make the .50AE Desert Eagle illegal?

    I wanted to measure the trigger pull on a rifle but not bad enough to buy one. If anyone has one that I could use for 10 seconds I would appreciate it :)
