it's WWII OD green duracoat. it looks more forest green in the pic but in person is the quintessential olive drab color.

its not the easiest coating to use because you have to mix it and it doesn't come in an aerosol can, but it wasn't hard either and the results are pretty awesome. the hardest part was waiting 24 hours to reassemble

Ambient cure coatings can be tricky.

We heat the parts as we go to get a more even coating and then bake the entire batch when done to further cure them.

What the hell is a practical rifle match?

Does a .45-70 guide gun count as practical?

In the real world it would, but for their shoot I think they're limiting it to poodle shooters only.

I use a .44 Redhawk for poodles.

I do too.

.454 for labs.

Most use a 5.56 or the ever popular 6.8.

I find them lacking.

Wanted to add another to my 10mm collection, and came across this:


Smith & Wesson model 310





But can I buy it in Massachusetts? Nope. Makes me SO happy to be closing on a house in NH this month.

Good luck finding one in real life.

At least for the next year.

Seriously? What a drag...

What's the deal, did S&W underestimate the demand? I figured at over 2x the price of a standard J-frame, only those with a 10mm fetish would be grabbing them. Or are the .40 people wanting a ankle gun to back up their main carry?


Well, if I have to wait a year then I'll go pick up a brand spankin' new Colt Delta Elite then... that'll teach em!

4 stages, 1-10 targets per stage 1 or more shots per target- Scores are based on time (shortest) and/or accuracy (highest). Targets can be staged as close as 4 meters or out to 300+ meters...there are optic-equipped and an iron sights categories.
Show up to the TriCounty Gun Club in Sherwood and then go to the Police Action/ Practical Rifle Range area by 0830 on Saturday for the mandatory orientation. Match starts at 09:30 -10. Matches can go on until 3...sometimes they are shorter.
I use an AR because they, well at least mine, is accurate....you can use anything but magnum rifle loads and there is absolutely no steel core ammo allowed.....we sometimes shoot at expensive targets that tend to get destroyed by both.. Your 45-70 should do just fine but I'm sure its not cheap to put 100+ rounds through.

Let me know if you need more info....

Oh and bring eye and ear protection, sunscreen and lunch!
Cheers,
Jorge

No.

$150 ain't cheap, and I've never seen a 300 yd range.
