Re: Las Vegas Shooting

I think you're confusing the 2 separate females. His Australian/Filipino girl friend yes, but that's not the woman they're looking for she's being interviewed already.

Re: Las Vegas Shooting

Hmmm, I wonder. Might she be the same Hispanic woman that was running round the concert trying to warn people they were “all going to die"! a short time before the attack started? “investigators are trying to identify a mystery woman seen with Stephen Paddock in the days before the Las Vegas massacr...

Re: Las Vegas Shooting

Funny you should say that. This just popped up: " Stephen Paddock, who killed at least 58 people and wounded hundreds more in Las Vegas on Sunday with high-powered rifles, was prescribed an anti-anxiety drug in June that can lead to aggressive behavior, the Las Vegas Review-Journal has learned.

'Cuz. 'Merica, yeah!

A nice day at the range. I went to the 100/200 yd range at the local shooting club today. When I arrives there were 2 men there already down on the 25Yd point. As I arrived they were finishing up & moving back to the 100yd point. As I was zeroing the re-shimmed PH5A I went up & joined them. It turne...

Re: Help with tightening a Jungle Carbine front sight

Its the machined part attached to the barrel with the sight dovetail in the top. You'd probably call it the "front sight base".

Early SMLE .303 mag. Worth a few bucks to collectors. I guess they used it to finish off a .22rf?

Re: Help with tightening a Jungle Carbine front sight

IIRC No4 & No5 are the same, for interchangeability, but No1 isn't.

Re: Thinking of a 10/22.

I've had mine for ever from new. At first it was a bit finicky about ammo, but a bit of use loosened it right up. It definitely does not like truncated conical point bullets though. Everything else is fine. Best of all its preferred ammo for accuracy & function is Remington Thunderbolts! Dont rule o...
