Re: AR options for the Lefty?

I don't know anything about the NLX, but I have owned a Stag lefty in .556 for many years. I've fired probably 4,000 rounds through it and it is still a tack driver. Mine has a chrome lined barrel which makes the rifling last longer. I have a 1 MOA red dot sight on it, and with a steady rest I can s...

Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

1. Remove all off-limits areas for LTCs; 2. Exempt volunteer security personnel protecting schools and students from the Texas Private Security Act. Chas. Removing off limits areas for LTC's needs to be an all out effort by all 2A groups! The Ft.Worth Paper online has had multiple articles on Const...

I'll give it a chance. I set it to record. Some of his stuff is terrible, and some is good.

Re: Hearing damage +P

Well, after a week the hearing damage has not improved at all. I have fired over 2,000 rounds in the last 10 years without hearing protection. Most of those were shooting hogs, but some were coyotes, deer, and snakes. I cannot say how much of my hearing loss is due to repeated firing without hearing...

Re: Hearing damage +P

I’m only 24, but growing up I was “too cool” for earpro, and now my ears ring just about constantly. Now anytime I’m shooting I have at least one type of ear pro, and I really like to double up. The hog problem unfortunately won’t be solved by hunting/trapping. There will eventually have to be a sy...

Re: Priorities for 2019 legislative session

When negotiating anything with another party, you always start out higher than you are willing to settle for. You have to give the other party the idea that they one part of the battle. I think Charles has it right. 1. Remove all off-limits areas for LTCs; 2. Exempt volunteer security personnel prot...

Re: Hearing damage +P

I have killed about 50 hogs so far this year on my property. I don't do it for sport, and I can't eat that much meat. The damage they do to the land is almost beyond description. This just boggles the imagination. What you describe is worse than a rat infestation. You can't really imagine it. You h...

Re: Hearing damage +P

OK, what happened to the pigs? Harvest or let lay there while you continued on your ear ache way? Well, I said that I fired 5 rounds, striking two. The hogs were maybe 30 yards away and running. I was luck to hit two of them. Neither one fell, but they flinched hard and continued to run. The buzzar...

Re: Hearing damage +P

Yes, they are much louder. I was at the range once with +p ammo loaded in my gun and fired off 2 quick shots without hearing protection, I can attest to it being much louder than any ball ammo or any hollow point that I ever fired. It hurt for awhile, I guess I got lucky because I only fired two ro...

Sorry about this and posting to see what anyone has to say.

Maybe if 'silencers' weren't illegal/highly regulated, you wouldn't have had this problem... :/

Re: Hearing damage +P

Depends on the round... I'm assuming 9mm +P since most carry 9mm. Some are worse than others, but none are considered "safe" without protection. (except Calibre's and the like) I never used to wear plugs rifle hunting and never noticed the shots... but a single round on the range with my 270 and it...

Hearing damage +P

Has anyone in the forum shot +P rounds without hearing protection? If so, I would like to hear your comments on the effect of the sound on your hearing, and possible hearing damage. Let me explain. I was leaving for work this morning when about 20 wild hogs crossed the driveway in front of me. The o...
