Re: Advantage tactical pyramid sights

Steyr puts something similar on their pistols. When I saw the sight picture on the Steyr I thought about putting them on some of my other pistols. I too need 1.5 readers.

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

Twice the cost is no joke. I was looking at the cost of kits. Oh then the jigs. I do have a family member that has several big boy mills that might be helpful with not needing to get the jigs.

ehh I think my first 1911 will be an already built one.

Re: 1911 Build: FINISHED!!!!

You guys are totally making me jealous. My nephew has been bugging me to build my own 1911 instead of buying an already built one. All your pics has me almost ready to click the buy now button. Those are awesome!

Re: Did something today I've never done before!

I am just a bit south of Badger and they are calling for 4-10 inches of snow. 4 towards the southern boarder of WI 10 going north. Near Badgerboy it might be 12 inches.

Re: Tried 150 grain Syntech ammo and started shooting high

It is for these first 2 days. This is the first time I shot in a league for pistol. Its an indoor range but fpr what the guy who runs it told me he will do different target sizes distances, different lighting, and will have targets swivel and spin.

Re: Tried 150 grain Syntech ammo and started shooting high

I zeroed in the 115 at 8 yards. My eyes aren't as good as they used to be. The distance for the that target I shoot in league (which was a big mistake to switch ammo like that) was 15 and 22 foot. Below is the target we had. https://i.ibb.co/bQ11tPb/Flying-Monkeys.jpg I was at the range today and fo...

Tried 150 grain Syntech ammo and started shooting high

All, I have a question. I normally shoot 115 grain Fiocchi in my SFX w/ Vortex Venom, I took a suggestion from one of the top and more experienced shooters in the pistol league I joined (first time in a league). He suggested a heavier weight round like a 147 grain for shooting league, he and I also ...

Re: Please someone tell me to wake up and its a bad dream.

As above, basic civics according to the Constitution is not taught anywhere from elementary through post-grad college. It is nothing but socialist propaganda. Unfortunately, it will be very difficult to reverse this brainwashing, so I naturally fear for the future of my country. I have walked Omaha...

Please someone tell me to wake up and its a bad dream.

So today I got notified of a new Guns and Gadgets Youtube video. The title caught my attention "New York Toy Gun Exchange is LIVE". Here is the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9AfN7BiwTc . I couldn't believe that they have actually started asking children to turn in their toy guns in exchange...
