It all depends on the volume or girth of the grip. Both Nill and Rink have run a little big in the diameter for the hand. The "broom handle diameter" so to speak. My hand is wide, short, and meaty. Very hard to find a grip I like. So I stay mostly with standard grips. I have invested a ton of $$$ in...

My hand is too thick to establish the Zins grip with the stock 45. My best hold employs forearm muscles to firm the wrist.

I have successfully taken many deer since I was 14-15 years old. Every one was with a 270 or 30-06 in Remington 721 or 725

I just got an LC380. One range session yesterday. Impressive little gun so far. Hardly any kick. The extra mag bottom is a must have. I rattled off a magof 7 +1 aimed at about 25ft after several trials of different holds. The grouping is dead on and was about 2". Not one function fail. Closest thing...

The 69SMK will do for now as we only have 200yds. I have to drive 100 miles and join another group to get long range. Heck ever 55 ammo from PMC works pretty good at 9.00/box. I have plenty of 69s on the shelf. What I am short of is SR primers.

Triple Ds are listed on CMP site by a link I see Makin amd Doc Young sometimes. I thought Reiter was Triple too. Maybe not. Almost ran into Vitarbo one time. http://www.odcmp.com/Competitions/Distinguished_History.pdf To me NRA Distinguished Revolver is not quite the same as the CMP and Internationa...

The 280 has a range of bullet weights wide enough you might consider twist rate. The 3006 wide range not so much concern.

Jack Here in our Oregon, there has been an 800 number where an individual can do a background. No paper required, just report numbers. At the dealers, it is real slick by computer nowadays. I was in and out at Gun Pro and SM real quick recently.

Take apart the rimfire duds using a fired 223 case over the lead and bend the bullet out. Toss the lead in recycle and dump the powder on the lawn. The primed case should lose the prime compound with a soak.

AR sights

I have a RRA Predator Pursuit long barrel. It has the A2 lower including changes to make the lower CMP legal. I have had a RRA NM A4 on order for a year now. Still no word. Are there add on sights for the RRA Predator Pursuit that are like or near like the sights that will be on the NM. I would like...
