Lasers

It is personal preference really (what your eyes see best).

I find I can see red more in the daylight and night than I can see green.

Ohhhh, that Glock 41 looks very tempting, but I just ordered a CZ455 (.22) with Mannlicher stock.

Maybe next month.

I have had several of these bottom ejecting beauties over the years, from grade I to grade III (all Brownings - no Japanese stuff) and have loved each and every one of them. Somehow, they all got traded away or sold, but their memories will live on for a long time yet. Easy to pack, easy to assemble...

Within the law, but actually stupid. I do not believe in open carry, why should I let the bad guy know I am armed? would much rather see the stupid look on his face as he looks down the barrel. amen brother... I do not believe in giving the 'bad guys' an equal chance. I would never advertise I am a...

Yes, quite addicting, but getting 30 in 1 second is actually fairly easy. I have done it at least 40-45 times now.

Did I mention this little thing is addicting ;-)

I should send them an email and volunteer to torture test one in an arid, desert environment prior to them being sent to the Middle East.

Course, they would also have to provide the ammo ;-)

Clay Pigeon Clips

Those clips are nice but too pricey in my opinion. I use paper clips to accomplish the same thing and if you should accidentally hit one, no big deal. Paper clips are also almost impossible to shoot off the line or cord or chain or whatever you hang them from, so clean up is limited to just the rema...

Bullets

I switched from lubed lead to clad bullets many years ago after a particularly nasty incident involving several cases of lubed lead bullets in a vehicle (at a shooting area) on a hot AZ afternoon. Lets just say it took a long time to clean up the individual cartridges. They were very sticky and foul...

Or everyone goes downrange at once Not a good idea at a public range. While shooters are downrange who's minding the firearms sitting on the benches? Anyone can walk up and grab some firearms and run. Or, what happens if someone new arrives and starts unloading their firearms at the benches while e...

The line that hit the hardest was "people do not learn from the past". This is so right it is frightening. When folks care only for themselves and what they can get from the 'government', their votes can be 'bought' with more handouts. Eventually the 'government' will run out of other folks money......

At the range I used to frequent, if anyone had skin on metal while someone was forward of the firing line, they would be immediately chewed out and banned from the range.

Safety is no joke and "it was not loaded" is not an acceptable response.

Happy Birthday - e pluribus unum

Thanks Bullseye for essentially taking over the now defunct Mark II/III forum and adding your own special insight.

Your willingness to assist others with their firearms/training problems is exemplary.

I salute you brother.
