    Range Report: M1A, Ruger AR556, and HTA 10/22

    Thanks for the report. I have an 18.5" barreled Ruger 77 Mk. II in .308, and the muzzle blast is fairly pronounced <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" />

    The Bear Topic

    buck91, Question. Do you have to carry concealed on the camping trip, or can you open carry? Or are you already on the trip? <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile" height="15" width="15" />

    The Bear Topic

    I was checking out the G23 over at Davidson's. I like the description of this one: <a href="http://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/Default.aspx?item=G2313AUT&zipcode=80104" target="_blank">http://www.galleryofguns.com/genie/Default.aspx?item=G2313AUT&zipcode=80104</a>

    The Bear Topic

    I think the original poster's question was whether or not to use his EDC Shield 9mm or his Glock 23 .40. I think the best bear weapon would be an Stryker mounted Mk 19, with a full load out of HE rounds. But that's just me. <img src="/forums/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="smile" title="smile"...

    I think if you were going to carry anyway, the .40 would be a better choice. There are other animals out there, also, including rabid ones and two-legged ones.

    My new bundle of joy!

    Of the M1A models, that is the one I would own. The SOCOM is too short, the standard is too long, the Scout Squad is...just right. You made a really good deal for that rifle. Congrats! I have a soft spot for those rifles. I had to tote an M1 Garand around in boot camp, and I qualified with...

    Blue Angels vs Thunderbirds

    My comments, although true, were somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I am not trying to imply that a Hercules can take on a modern fighter. I have to disagree with the carrier landing. It was not really a stunt. They were serious. That exercise was trying to determine the viability of a C-130 on a...

    Blue Angels vs Thunderbirds

    Were any of these planes mentioned ever equipped with 105mm howitzer, able to carry a GBU-43/B MOAB, or able to land, stop, and takeoff again, unassisted, on a carrier flight deck? I think not. C-130

    How about that C-130 on the JATO bottle? <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHOvoO-6nWQ" target="_blank">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHOvoO-6nWQ</a>

    New car - dealer says change oil every 3000 mi

    If you ever have warranty claim, that dealer is going to be the one involved. Me personally?. I would get it changed at 3750. It would be easy to deny a warranty claim under severe service. If they are the ones changing at the severe service level, then it would be much harder for them to deny...

    Brake fluid as a bore cleaner?

    Are we discussing "brake fluid" or "brake cleaner"? Huge difference.

    Pics from Maine

    Love me some Maine. Spent some time over the years in the Portland area and a little north of there. Thanks for the pics.

    Mailing a handgun

    I shipped a couple of revolvers to S&W a couple of years ago, and then they shipped them back. All by Fedex. They handle firearms differently than their regular packages. I would insure, however, because anything can happen.
