Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: The Old Forum.

The biggest change with this site is that it became a collector's forum.

Rapidrob and a handful of others are the only shooters left.

Re: Saturday Morning Target Shooting

Thanks Curtis!

Young people need to do stuff like this. Many times they wouldn't have a clue if they would enjoy shooting as a sport. The looks on their faces when they finally get bullets onto steel is priceless.

If we won't grow our sport, it will die.

Saturday Morning Target Shooting

Hello everyone! Today I met some of my rifle team students out at our local 300 yard range. We shot an Argentine 1891, a Bulgarian Steyr 1895 rifle, a Persian Mauser and a Finn M39. These young men were easily hitting the 300 yard gong with some spotting and minor sight adjustments. All loads save t...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Here is the only gunsmithing joke that I know for your amusement:

How do you make a million dollars in the gunsmithing business?

Start out with 2 million!

Any pictures of your 1917 S&W?

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Great pictures of Monument Valley...lots of happy memories of that place for me..

I once slept under the stars at the Sleeping Bear camp ground back in 2013.

Ever visit John Wayne's house near there?

Re: 800 yards with the M-1917 again

Nice shooting Rob and Ammolab! Thanks for the advice. The M 1917 did extremely well with cast bullets at 200 yards. I used 23 grains of shooter's world Buffalo Rifle powder with a 200 grain Lyman 311299 cast bullet. The young people enjoyed shooting it. I miss out west with their wonderful long rang...

Re: Saudis celebrating with guns

This reminds me of an old memory from my first deployment to Iraq...back when I was on Patrol Base Banzai/Camp Justice in Kadamiyah, Baghdad. The Iraqi Football (Soccer) team made the quarterfinals for the 2004 Olympics. The resulting celebratory small arms fire came up on Q36 and Q37 counter-batter...
