I've got 3 of the Judges. And the Circuit is on my list too.


I like the .357, a true snub nose(2")
Thanks I'm really looking forward to both. And yeah, good old CA is a full ten days for pistols and long guns.. Super irritating for sure.

What do you shoot with it? IDPA, USPSA?

The STI Edge is definitely an IPSC Limited gun, so USPSA is probably the ansewr. I'm not sure they would be legal in IDPA, or, if they were, you'd be limited to 10 rounds in the mag.

They do hit hard, but I think with a buttpad it is a great first high power centerfire rifle for someone.....double true if that person is a history nut...a great first mil surplus rifle.
I've got an m44 (barrel is too pitted to trust now ). Never really thought it was that bad. But I grew up shooting cheap lightweight shotguns.... my single 20ga at least doubles the kick of that m44. The 12ga... well I call it the tenderizer. Hell even my little .410 will leave you with a red mark after a few shells. Probably the worst of them all though is an old semi auto 12 ga of my grandfathers.



That sure looks like it. I've only shot that bastard a few times. And that was more than enough.

That is the thing that everyone needs to keep in mind with these surplus rifles....they are surplus, so pick one that will do what you want from it.

It's interesting to see what kind of indoor shooting facilities you can have if you go high-end and modern. Every indoor shooting range I've ever been to (and I haven't been to many of them mind you) has been dark, dingy, and just generally unsavory. I think they must mainly be zoned into the shittier parts of town and things just go from there.

And older....getting a new one off the ground is VERY expensive. Having one in the city (heck anywhere) is just one election away from being shut down. One idiot can get you shut down....and don't even go to insurance, EPA, venting.....

There's a brand new one opening in Richmond, VA soon, looks like it will be pretty nice.

Neither, I shoot shit in my backyard LOL. I was heading to the gunshop to have them order an STI Tactical 5.0 and saw the Edge in the consignment case at what seemed like a good price so I got it instead. It had some FTF issues so I wonder if that is why the previous owner sold it? I sent it back to STI and they fixed it right up. Been flawless ever since. I would rather have the tactical though so I might sell it to finance that.

There's a range "near" here that I need to try out. Brownell's is located about an hour west of here, and they have apparently built a state-of-the-art facility there.

That trap range is perfect for black light shooting.
