Re: My new Colt

Nice! I have the same model but I'm .45 ACP. It's my first and only Colt, 1911, and .45. Love it! It's by far my favorite shooting handgun.

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

Thanks for the report ammoboy. SQLGeek, I recently found out about them, too. I’m not really into running or jogging, but training for an event like this was actually fun. Most I’ve ever run was a 5K in my younger years, but I was able to work my way up to a slow jog for about 5 or so miles with 20-...

Re: Lonestar Armory Run and Gun (Biathlon)

Unfortunately, I had to bow out due to illness. My heat was the early morning one at 8 am, so it would’ve been pre-rain I think. How was it? Any photos? I’m still very much intetested in doing my first one.

Re: Target shooting on public land

Unlike western states with hundreds of thousands of public land where one can legally target shoot for free, the only public land I’m aware of in Texas where you could do the same is in a small area in the LBJ Grasslands where you could only shoot shotguns, no rifle or pistol. That was a few years a...

Oops. Meant to say Garand-safe .308 ammo like the rest of us who search for Garand-safe .30-06 ammo.

Re: Pictures of your "Brown Guns"

If this is a dupe thread, I apologize. I searched but only found the black guns thread. This little beauty showed up today. Mailed my paperwork the CMP on Dec 1. CC was charged on Dec 5.

Re: Corrected Vision Shooting

I would only try shooting without corrected vision if it were no more than 7 yards away at a pistol bay. My vision is really bad, so bad that I’d be considered “legally blind” uncorrected (thank God for contacts and eyeglasses!). At arms length, I can’t even see the front sight, and can only see a b...

Re: AR Scope Suggestions

Thanks, everyone. I've decided on the Nikon P223 per cmgee67's recommendation. I have a Nikon on my Rem 700CDL in .25-06, and really like the Nikon quality. The Vortex Strike Eagle looks really nice, but that's a bit more that I wanted to spend, and I would have had to get another mount for it. The...

Re: AR Scope Suggestions

What's your budget? I use a Leupold vx-2 on one of my AR's and a Redfield Revolution on another. I used both out to 300 but I'm currently trying to get better at 200 and they work great there. I got the Leupold for $200 and the revolution for $100 Which VX-2 do you have? The 1-4x20mm? I just ordere...
