Because theirs shot across the room and they can't find them again. Now I need new grip screws.

I want one of these things one day. I guess I just have this fetish for folding/portable stuff - perhaps because I ride a bike and always wanna take stuff with me .

My next rifle.
I hefted one of those the other day at Sportman's Warehouse in .338 and it won't do for offhand shooting. But they really perform well. A young guy at the range in Washington State uncovered one in .308 just after I finished shooting my Savage 12. One cold shot after five minutes to setup, then four on top of each other at 100 yards. I was real impressed.

This has mystified me: I always thought that the way to do it would be to put the NVD behind the optics. If you are putting the NVD in front, aren't you just magnifying the screen of the NVD?? After all, it isn't something you see through; in essence all it is is a fancy monitor. Who wants to look at magnified phosphor and what good does it do??

I watched a few episodes then it became real apparent they were all about the drama and they seemed to encourage discord between the members of a team. Not my cup of tea at all.

TIVO. Fast forward unless someone is pulling a trigger. It makes the show much more enjoyable.

You gotta admit that Dustin was a natural shooter and made up for most of the nonsense on the final series of shows.

I'm friends with and shoot with/against Iain, the winner of the 1st season of Top Shot. Hs's a standup guy, a wicked good shot and was just sworn in as a US Citizen last week.
Here he is dressed in a skirt at the local final episode viewing of season 1

Ouch!

Found this on another forum:



Magnum accident


First it was baby formula, then pet food, but now you should Watch out when buying

anything from China , including bright, Shiny ammunition.
A guy came into the police department the other day to ask a favor. He had

a S&W 629 (.44 Mag) that he wanted to dispose of after a mishap at the range.
He said there was a loud bang when he tested his new ammo (Chinese made),

and the gun smacked him in the forehead, Leaving a nice gash. When the

tweety birds cleared from around His head, the pictures show what he saw.
Bet he never uses Chinese made ammo again!
Looks like when the round in the chamber went off, It also set off at least

two other rounds in adjacent cylinders. I would have hated to been the one

that pulled the trigger on That one!



Pretty scary. I cant imagine how much energy was released when three 44 mag shells went off at the same time.

I think it's handloads and not chinese ammo. I can't ever recall seeing Chinese ammo. Russian, east bloc, but no Chinese.
