I've shot silhouette seriously in the recent past..... While not often seen, William Zander of Texas used to shoot very high scores with a 10/22..... One of the advantages I believe is the fact that a string of five shots can be very easily done without removing the rifle from the shoulder...without...

Nice looking stock by the way. R, Bullseye Thanks, took a year, but it's beginning to work out.....I had to modify a Butt Plate/Hook that I already had, and had to build an entire offhand Butt Plate/Hook but my average is starting to creep back up where it used to be! The fellow at PDC had never bu...

What to torque an aluminum stock, Anschutz action......

Hello! Longtime no speakie...... Indoor rimfire season is here again, and I'm getting my Anschutz Match 54 (1800 Series) ready for action, but.... I bought me an aluminum stock, non-Anschutz, http://www.pdccustom.com/, which is shaving a few pounds off the total weight, which I need as I age and get...

The late, great Ray Wheeler was indeed one of our members, only not during the time of the "great troubles." Ray died about four, five years ago. He was a great guy, once you got past his unique personality! And his picture is all over our walls...... Did you shoot against him, Hardball? Prone? The ...

I guess I'm lucky...... We have a 50' indoor range that was built in 1946 and used until just recently for target rifle competition, 4- position..... But our range and our club was on its last legs....just four members....and then we found bullseye pistol. We cashed in a CD and bought six Mark III l...

When you mentioned moving around is this side to side or lateral movement? Some pins do move within the frame from side to side because the retaining spring allows some of this movement within the frame. Side movement will not have a noticeable effect on trigger pull but lateral movement can. Gener...

Couple of dumb questions, Ruger MKIII, 22/45

Good mawning! Here's a couple of dumb ones..... 1. The pin holding the aluminum match trigger (VQ, I think...) in my 22/45 visibly moves around when the trigger is squeezed back. Is this normal, or is the hole oversized or worn? If it isn't normal, is there any fix? 2. I notice on the VQ site that t...

That annual blood test is a good idea; and I think I'll go get one. I'm feeling great, but the contamination factor is always on my mind. I spend a least two nights at the range, December through March, and I'm sure it ain't doing me much good...... Our two blowers are located mid-range, one on the ...

I have two Annies, both rimfire, a Match 54 and a sporter 1710. I use them almost constantly, and have thousands of rounds through them. The one on the left has a Hart Stainless barrel and lives in one of two stocks, either a McMillan Anschutz-type silhouette stock or a PDC custom position aluminum ...

Mask up?

Our indoor shooting range was built in 1946, and is pretty dirty...... we installed a couple of big blowers for ventilation, but the help they give is probably marginal. I sometimes wonder what the long-term damage might be from breathing a lot of .22 lr particulate and vapors, and have thought abou...

Dedicated .22lr upper for an AR?

I'd consider shooting my AR in our winter rifle league if I had a dedicated .22lr upper....anybody know of any reasonably priced models?

I haven't been on here forever, but let me throw my vote to the Ruger..... I've shot indoor .22 bullseye for a couple of years now and I'm completely satisfied, both with the Ruger 22/45 and the cheap, bulk ammo I shoot. Fast approaching seventy, and I'll never be on a National pistol team, but...wh...

Getting uppity.....

I got a little hot on my last night of .22 Bullseye indoor, blasting away with my Ruger 22/45, Volq kit, Millet Red-dot, and CCI SV, and so, naturally...... I'm now thinking a little about upgrading my equipment, maybe to a Smith 41 or High Standard whatever, or even a Clark Ruger...... My logical s...
