| Outdoor Board|| Digging into the ATF's M855 Proposal & Why It's Wrong - Clames on 3/1/15 at 12:32 pm|
This will be a lengthy post with pictures and math. Those of you that can't brain too good might want to go look up cat pictures... :booboo:
Starting with the ATF's proposal itself:
| Outdoor Board|| Dan Wesson .357 Mag 4-barrel set. - Clames on 11/27/14 at 1:26 pm|
Some old gun I was just given as a gift, never fired, looks like the cylinder was rotated once or twice.
I know... :snoozer:...
| Outdoor Board|| Data driven range time. - Clames on 11/9/14 at 4:04 pm|
Spent a few hours at the local range testing out some .223 handloads as well as working on a system to collect data for each rifle and various factory loads. More concerned with velocity and accuracy data for the .223 loads than I am with the .308 stuff for my GSR at the moment. Target was setup a...
| Outdoor Board|| Gotta love RCBS and their customer service. - Clames on 10/25/14 at 5:56 pm|
Lazy weekend with not much more planned than changing oil in the truck so I figured I'd load some .223 to kill time. Picked up my RCBS hand priming tool and discovered the small priming rod was missing. No idea where it went, my reloading bench is spotless and everything has its own drawer from sh...
| Outdoor Board|| I gotta stop buying these things. - Clames on 9/15/14 at 3:48 pm|
The 531 on the bottom was delivered today. Nice little knife, very thin, even more so than the 940's. Just ordered a custom Griptillian for somebody's Christmas gift too and now I think I'll have to have one made for...
| Outdoor Board|| OB Mechanics, let's see if you can figure this out. - Clames on 9/12/14 at 4:56 pm|
This spark plug was somewhat seized, took an overnight soak in Kroil and careful use of a breaker bar to work it out without taking the threads in the aluminum cylinder head with it. Little bit of oil puddled around the base of the plug, either from a slight leak in the valve cover gasket or a litt...

[quote]In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use...
| Outdoor Board|| Made a (practical) addition to my 1911. - Clames on 5/14/14 at 6:03 pm|
Changed out the VZ Operator II's to a set of VZ Frags. These are the slimline grips which require thinner bushings and shorter screws. In fact even the shorter screws needed to be shortened a little more (from 0.346" to 0.328") to allow the magazines to clear.
| Outdoor Board|| A bad part of buying firearms accessories...(EDIT: :Banana:) - Clames on 4/3/14 at 12:04 pm|
...is the anticipation when the e-mail notice states that the package is "Out for delivery"....
| Outdoor Board|| Beretta A400 Xplor Unico KO 12ga - Clames on 1/30/14 at 7:56 am|
Shop just called and mine is in.... :nana: :nana: :nana:
Makes for a long day of work though... :banghead:...
| Outdoor Board|| American Made Kitchen Cutlery - Clames on 12/31/13 at 3:39 pm|
S.O. got me a carving set from Warther & Sons.
Very well made and balanced. Knives use S35VN steel (58-60 HRC) and are a great value compared with Wustof, Henckels, and other high-end makes. The carving knife has a...
| Outdoor Board|| Already Germans: H&K Polymer AR Mags - Clames on 12/11/13 at 3:18 pm|
Picked up three during their webshop's buy-2-get-1-free deal.
Compared to a windowed PMAG.
Definitely made out of a harder polym...
| Outdoor Board|| Another Ruger for my stable. - Clames on 11/19/13 at 5:54 pm|
Picked up a stainless Gunsite Scout. Makes the third Ruger I own along with a blued 22/45 and a 12ga Red Label.
| Outdoor Board|| I just bought a gun! Pic inside - Clames on 1/18/13 at 5:09 pm|
I'm actually making 15 Bean ham soup.
And this followed me home today.
| Outdoor Board|| 1956 Winchester Model 50 12ga - Clames on 12/3/12 at 6:37 pm|
This shotgun has been a little repair project of mine since after Thanksgiving.
It was complete except for needing an ejector/spring assembly and a closing spring plug clip. Filthy though, probably hasn't been seriously stripped an...
