Re: Dovetail to Picatinny Adapter/Red Dot Sight Pellet Rifle

Can't help you on the red dot but there are lots of dovetail to Picatinny adapters available. Even on amazon for $8-$15 depending on the style and size you want. Years ago I had a RWS (1200 fps) and it ruined a few rimfire scopes... I finally bought a good airgun scope. I would think a red dot suita...

Re: Springfield Operator TRP

Picking it up tomorrow, slightly used but looks to be in great shape. I was looking for something in the 1911 range that wouldn't brake the bank, be reliable (sorry, I'm a Glock guy), and not too fancy to occasionally carry... Yeah, it's just a plain ol' TRP. :lol: We define "fancy" diffe...

Re: Ammo prices going down?

I purchased .22LR at Academy this weekend for $2.49 per box of 50 - American Eagle brand. Also purchased .22LR Federal Premium Match for $3.99 per box of 50 at Gander Mountain. You might want to check that American Eagle brand of 22 LR. I believe it is packed 40 rounds per box instead of 50. Still ...

Re: 1936 LASD training video. Yikes! Cringe!

A few observations... one of the ear shots was about a mm from hitting his ear! there were a few close shots on hands and mouth! Also I didn't see them wearing ear plugs or even brass!

As a kid, I would have loved to go see them though... as an adult, I cringe on the close shots. ...lol

Mine sure are!!

.45ACP has dropped by over 20 cents per round, at my house, thanks to the good people at Dillon and a few select components suppliers! :tiphat:

Re: well, ladies and gents....it's here!

Man, it's thick up front. You could almost carry a spare mag in the dust cover! I wonder if it's front heavy?

It doesn't fill a need for me, other than it's new, but I'd be curious to shoot it and see how the trigger and balance are.

Re: Attempted robbery at Dixie Gun and Pawn: 1911 saves the day!

I'm going to leave this right here... :leaving In this case, yankee marshall is right... if you define the least desirable caliber as the one that incapacitates your attacker instantly on the first, well placed shot- then yes, the .45acp is awful, maybe worse than his beloved .380. :shock: He's no ...

Re: Do you wear gloves when cleaning your guns?

I used to most of the time... but also now use non toxic cleaner and lube. (still do sometimes just to clean up easier)

Re: Best Practices for avoiding buying a stolen weapon

Meet them at the PD and ask to run the serial number... doubt they will show if it's not legit. A lot of these areas are popping up at local PD's.... Belton PD even has reserved parking for you out in front of their building!

Re: Best Practices for avoiding buying a stolen weapon

Thanks! I'm buying new then! saving a few bucks does not warrant feeding into the loop of buying stolen weapons. Many buy used because what they want is no longer in production or available new. Buying in cash, over retail price, in a back alley, after midnight - probably increases the chances you ...

Re: Turkey

Sounds like a great time. I really enjoy watching the turkeys down here. We have a group of about 25 or so that spend the spring and early summer at our place.
